About 10 years back you could barely sneeze on a forum about conspiracies, the paranormal, or the supernatural without somebody jumping up at you and
making some kind of pronouncement about "Indigo children".
They were either claiming to be one, were wondering if their child was one, or were pushing some view about how they were the next step in human
evolution. That kind of stuff.
Now, you barely hear anything. What happened?
Was this just a fad that ran out of steam, something that people got bored with and moved on to something else, or did something actively change in
the wider supernaturalparanormal community, or society in general, that did away with the whole idea?
Anecdotally, I notice that interest indigo children seemed to wain around the time that "millennials" became a thing in pop culture, as well as a
rise in awareness of things like Asperger. And some of the traits associated with Millennialpeople with Asperger are similar to those for Indigo
children. For example, Indigo children were supposed to be highly introverted and self-focused, as well as being unusually sensitive on certain
topics, or unusually focused regarding certain things. Which does sound a lot like somebody with Asperger, but without all of the supernatural
It does at least seem plausible that Indigo children were really either poorly socialized snowflakes with overly attentive helicopter parents, or that
they had Asperger at a time when paranormal conspiracies were rife and Asperger was poorly understood. Or a combination of the two.
What does everybody else think?
