How would this theory explain the literal-mindedness and difficulty w/ non-concrete  concepts commonly seen in people w/ autism? I can see how it would make effortless empathy (as in subconsciously simulating the other person) and normal social communication difficult, but the inability of many of these people on the spectrum to get metaphors or figurative speech definitely seems like something that can't be explained by "intensity" of the world around them.
