Manning connects this to the idea that of "autistic perception," defined via autistics because the information of a relational box ahead of the so-called neurotypical tendency to "chunk" event into predetermined matters and gadgets. Autistics clarify that, instead of instantly distinguishing objects—such as chairs and tables and humans—from each other on coming into a given setting, they event the surroundings as progressively taking shape. Manning continues that this mode of understanding underlies all belief. What we understand isn't first a subject matter or an item, yet an ecology. From this vantage aspect, she proposes that we give some thought to an ecological politics the place circulation and relation take priority over predefined different types, reminiscent of the neurotypical and the neurodiverse, or the human and the nonhuman.

The infant is asocial, but by virtue of being indiscriminate, not by virtue of being unresponsive, as suggested by psychoanalytic formulations of a stimulus barrier that protects the infant for the first few months of life” (Stern 1985, 63). This asociality is not against the social. It is a suprasociality, a relationality activated at the very interval of relation itself, not yet having landed on individualization. This is relationality at its most intensive, an opening to the complex fielding of multiplicity as yet undifferentiated.

For autistics do not as easily subtract containment from the experience of relation. They do not tend to first and foremost abstract themselves—their “self ”—from the emergent environment. 19 When containment is no longer the endpoint (and the starting point) of experience, subtraction from the hyperrelation of synesthetic and crossmodal experience lags behind. The unified verbal self is no longer the first to emerge. Baggs (2007) explains, citing a social context where she would be assumed to be “nonrelational”: “I mean that when I am around a group of people, their voices may turn into the sound of water, their movements may all sort of blend together, but in their movements I see patterns not only of individuals but of the people interacting within a group, and the individual’s place within the group, and their effect on the group and the group’s effect on them, and on each other.
