Intriguing story from Reed. The narrator describes the rise to fame of an autistic young man, whose fame comes through a pseudo-science that becomes globally popular. He posits that there are ‘bonds’ between people stronger and more real than those of which we normally peak. The narrator himself is an individual similarly estranged from most of society, saving for a few dozen contacts with shared interests. When the pseudo-science appears to be supported by ‘real’ science, the narrator is given food for though.
Intriguing in the sense of needing to mull this one over for a couple of days to work it out!
