Christopher sees the world in panoramic vision. He takes in all the details at one time. A nature show involving a mother animal holds the same social cues as a human mother. Chris doesn't always separate the human from the world around him. Some people that fail to understand his condition may consider this to be callous or cold. Chris just sees the world's details as connected.
