Earthling and Autisman

Once upon a time on a small, green quiet planet.

Autisman: So – welcome to my home world.

Earthling: Don’t you feel weighed down? It feels as if I’ve got weights strapped to my arms and legs.

Autisman: Ah, but on your planet, I always feel as if I’m swimming around in space, weightlessly.

Earthling: Okay. Now I understand you. I really understand.
