Mainly the sequencer observes and sometimes I.
Guess I could have eg.1 sort of perceive, but I rarely do that.
Once did with a friend and he first thought I was scanning him
magically, but checking magically he raeliozed that I was not, and
went real puzzled, and asked me disquieted what I did, because he
knew that I was scanning with high intesity, just did not know what
I was scanning of him.
I had known him a while, and he had never seen me do that
So it is really rare I do that.
But I guess non-autists do that more and maybe a lot, but maybe
