Echopraxia

If praxia means experience, how sick a society wold be for translating the matristic, natural sense, of a term, to a "sickness state". Yes, the sates we have constructed, inside our "autism", are autocracies, becoming extincts, we hope, in the very near future... insha allah!

Echopraxia is the involuntary repetition or imitation of the observed movements of another. It is closely related to echolalia, the involuntary repetition of another's speech. The etymology of the term is from Ancient Greek: "ἠχώ (ēkhō) from ἠχή (ēkhē “sound”)" and "πρᾶξις (praksis, “action, activity, practice”)".

Even though it is considered a tic, it is a behaviour characteristic of some people with autism,[1] Tourette syndrome, Ganser syndrome, schizophrenia (especially catatonic schizophrenia), some forms of clinical depression and some other neurological disorders.
