I don't know if an infatuation with infanthood is related to Asperger's syndrome, but my reference to the infatuation with infanthood was related to my point that I've had personal experience with those who get hung-up on bizarre notions. Also, I didn't say that Asperger's condition is so horrible that one should be locked up in an institution. I just think that a person who has AS should be encouraged to focus on more profitable modes of thought. In the case of Newton and Einstein, if they really had AS, then they certainly were focused in the right areas of human thought. For the most part, I think most people with AS are more likely to be focused on things that do not bear any fruit. Such people probably go into fields like physics, but due to the severity of their illness they are not successful.
