My Focus

I have received MAIL. A reader asked me: "My only questions is, why focus on the Asberger's aspect of your personality as opposed to your entire personality? You are Andrew before you are someone with Asberger's Syndrome."

I do not understand your reply above. An Aspie is someone who has Asperger's Syndrome. As an Aspie, I do not think the same way as NT people do. I explain primarily myself in my Web Log, especially with what I individual write. My primary interest is for the reader outside of me, to discover, know, and understand me. To say that I am an Aspie, helps one understand me through an established general definition. Your difference from me is invisible, and has a significance. Someone's race (like black or white) is noticeable but has no tangible difference in who one is. Every individual has a unique personality. Aspie does not mean or define one's personality. My personality is affected by using the Aspie operating system. I was born that way, as well as being named Andrew. It is who I am. As consequence of this, some commonalities of me and Aspie's are noticeable when compared to NT's. My Blog represents me as an individual first. It has been a very frustrating and lonely life for me. It was for not knowing my specific parameters or restraints when compared with typical people. Finally discovering the name of A.S., for my set of parameters, has given me profound focus, understanding, confidence, and
empowerment. I now know my unique gifts of strengths, a
nd defined limits. So as to promote greater understanding, communication, and cooperation of all people, I am driven to make all people, Aspie or NoT, know of our differences. I know myself, and report what I can most identify with in traits of all others. I explain these similarities I have with Aspies, and the differences with NT's. NTs are not all the same, neither are Aspies all the same. I have sets of similarities with "New Yorkers", Jews, and Aspie's. I do not share all traits or characteristics of either of these groups. However to know them, helps to understand me. I explain how a Typical Aspie is like me. I do not try to fit any stereotype of what an Aspie is. I was born a Jew. I do not deny I am a Jew. However, I find religion, such as being Jewish, inconsequential. I am not religious. I am Agnostic. I do not define this as my religious identity or persuasion. It is my purpose for living. That is of seeking knowledge for its own sake. I hope that others, who read the information that I provide, can help them realize their identity and focus, for a more productive and meaningful life. I am very much a unique individual first, and am not easily persuaded to conform. In some ways, it is impossible to conform to Typical people. I do not have a disease. There is nothing to be cured. I love who I am the way I am. This individual thinking is a strong commonality of Aspie's that contrasts us from NTs. I am an Aspie. Get used to it!

A few common traits of Aspies include
  • Small talk is difficult
  • Can become confused in complex social situations
  • Extremely detail oriented and focused on facts
  • Ability to focus for extended periods on a specific task
  • Difficulty interpreting and understanding what others feel and think
  • Maybe he believes he has no personality outside the Aspergers Syndrom personality.
  • Andrew I. Lerner Are you referring to the question asked by my reader at the very top of this posting? If so, it appears that you are assuming that the reader is a "he" and an Aspie. Is this true? Below that question, is my long answer. Is your statement addressed at MY explanation? Please, I look forward to your clarification. "Aspie does not mean or define one's personality."

  • Andrew I. Lerner ‎"Aspie does not mean or define one's personality."
  • Some folks when reading constantly about how you state you are Aspie may think that.Others may think you may use "ASPIE" to label yourself and follow some sort of guidelines that have been established by other information out there posted by researchers, doctors, ASPIES etc.
    • Andrew I. Lerner TY for this insight. I am so relieved to find out who I am, I want to save others from that struggle, and help others to understand them.
    • OK. Just try to think outside of the ASPIE box once in a while, which I know you do. Find a NT list and try a few of the listed charasteristics. You may surprize yourself!
    • Andrew I. Lerner Aspies think outside of the box. Most or typical people are in the proverbial box. Ironically, Aspies also have difficulty with the meaning and use of proverbs. My goal is to educate people how Aspies think. I provide this as my mission to... founder understanding and cooperation with this invisible disability both have with each-other. By doing so, people will also better understand me, and why I act the way I do. I and we do not react in the same way for the same reasons as an NT. I have personality traits that are shared with all other people. You can discover those by interacting with me. They are not specific to being NT or Aspie. There is not need for me to list them. However I have learned to use proverbs as most NTs do, as an example. The number one theme I come across in learning about our differences, is rudeness. For example, I have a hard time guessing what people mean or how they feel. I have decided, since I am often wrong, that I must depend on their explicit description on how they feel. I often hope they will do this. I want to avoid doing something that would be" inappropriate", offend, or hurt your feelings. I do not do things intentionally for this as a goal. I am not belligerent If I can not tell you how you expected me to have felt when I did something that that unknowingly offended you. To avoid upsetting people, I often ask them many questions to find out how they would feel, to help guide me of how I should act. They ofen have a hard time answering, or get annoyed by this. Hopefully you can see my continuous frustration. I experience "after guilt", when it is explained by them, after my action, that I upset them. NT "characteristics" have been treated as the standard" It is the different way in which Aspies process information that needs to be made aware of by all Neuros.
It is rare that people have the courage to be so open, honest, blunt and direct to me. People instead get constantly annoyed by me because I do not know.

Mail is not just postal anymore.

U.S. Postal Service designating all new first-class stamps as "forever." Beginning in January, all new stamps good for 1 ounce of domestic first-class mail will forgo a printed denomination and be acceptable for the typical letter regardless of the current postal rate. "It was" 50 "years ago today...." The Beatles formed Apple records. Now Apple Inc.'s I-tunes bought The Beatles tunes. I made a different design in the same logo style that says "The Apples" At one time, Michael Jackson (1958 like me) owned the rights to all of their tunes. Paul McCartney is the most commercially successful songwriter in the history of popular music, according to Guinness World Records He is four years older than "when he" was "64".

Literal detail

An Aspie' exclusively depend upon the standard literal written and verbal language to gain all understanding. An Aspie will not know what is on your mind, or how you feel, unless you you explain it exclusively with standard use of the common language. Aspie talks in a brutally honest, blunt, and direct way, which can be interpreted as rude. Aspie is an expert at detail, facts, and remaining within a narrow frame of reference. Therefore the big picture is hard to see. The reverse is true for Neurotypical people.

My new logo, with Aspie Slogan Alternative Reasoning, includes the following:
  1. The word Aspie, which is an individual with Asperger's Syndrome.
  2. A brief phrase explaining of how an Aspie compares to an NT, a typical person.
  3. My first initial and last name incorporated into the above phrase.
  4. A depiction of the Nuclear Disarmament or Peace symbol.
  5. The date that the above symbol was designed.
  6. The date that I was born.
  7. The E is upside down and backwards, representing you and our interactions.

Hyperlexic

Aspies are hyperlexic. They are obsessed with language and words in their struggle for communication. They are more closed off from other forms of communication, and therefore dependent on a directly intellectual form. This is a somewhat synthesized or artificial representative tool of words, as opposed to facial expressions or intonation. We hold these words and letters sacred, and its communication very seriously. We do not engage in the blasphemous or careless use of language as does the Neuro-Typical (NT). In our frustration to make sense of our world we depend on literal meanings. We concentrate on the specific details at the cost of seeing the big picture. We study details to find evidence that show us the facts and truth. By doing so, we see things typical people do not notice. This is just as we do not see the subtleties in physical or verbal expressions of NTs. It is for these reasons that I submit for your approval, my logo or and symbol. I call it "ASPIE = ALtERNativE Reasoning" I use it as my Avatar to identify me. If you are an Aspie you are more likely to be able to decipher why, by using your alternative reasoning. Can you figure it out?

Viewpoint and Motive.

My viewpoint and motive is of the now and worldly. Some may find that there is a missing part. It may be refereed to as the spiritual or higher self. I do not recognize this. People perceive me as if my "inner being" does not feel or perceive. Death is Free.

80% of grown-ups with Asperger's do not have full-time jobs – not because they can’t do the work, but because they can’t manage to be socially acceptable while they get the work done.

Adults with Aspergers have a hard time finding jobs now. What will the jobless rate be for that group when — if current statistics are correct — the 1 in 110 children who have Aspergers try to become employed? As it is now, lots of adults with Aspergers are looking for full-time jobs, but their gifts are not recognized.

An Aspie uses ALtERNativE Reasoning



Click the logos to the left and right to see an enlargement of "Aspie is ALtERNativE Reasoning". Aspie stands for Asperger's Syndrome or Wrong Planet Syndrome. Not only am I an Aspie, my name is hidden in this definition, or Aspie Slogan, that I assigned to it: Alternative Reasoning. I also call an individual with it, as having the Aspie Operating System. In this logo, I have substituted the math symbol "Pi" for the letters p and i. This illustrates a mathematically logical, and alternative way to reason out details, as Aspies do. To further bring attention to the meaning of Pi, "Alternative Reasoning" is in a circle or pie around "AsPIe". An Aspie may also notice how The letters A and e are next to the sideways equivalents of A and E. http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_1FDrDMY-s3k/TQxpmqtDVLI/AAAAAAAABXs http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_1FDrDMY-s3k/TQ4zPqZ4xFI/AAAAAAAABYc/tQUnxACTTds/s200/ASPIE_ALt_vertical.jpg/xDgW5deZino/s1600/AsApie.jpg Aspie logos Aspie slogans Aspie symbols Aspie signs Aspie icon Aspie logo Aspie slogan Aspie symbol Aspie sign Aspie icon Aspie logo Aspie slogan Aspie symbol Aspie sign Aspie icon ASpie logo ASpie slogan ASpie symbol ASpie sign Aspie logo Aspie slogan Aspie symbol Aspie sign Aspie icon Aspie logo Aspie slogan Aspie symbol Aspie sign Aspie icon Aspie logo Aspie slogan Aspie symbol Aspie sign Aspie icon Aspie logo Aspie slogan Aspie symbol Aspie sign Aspie icon Aspie logo Aspie slogan Aspie symbol Aspie sign Aspie icon Aspie logo Aspie slogan Aspie poster Aspie symbol Aspie sign Aspie icon ASperger logo ASperger slogan ASperger symbol ASperger sign ASperger icon Aspie logo Aspie slogan Aspie symbol Aspie sign ASpie icon Aspie logo Aspie slogan Aspie symbol Aspie sign Aspie icon Aspie logo Aspie slogan Aspie symbol Aspie sign Aspie icon ASpie's are hyperlexic.

Revolution

The following was not created by Andrew Lerner, and is not responsible for its content.

With the growing deficit and the recession stagnating, I feel I have a duty to share my beliefs on this, the United States. As the deficit grows with the “Economic Recovery Plan” and the remnants of the “War On Terror.” The ‘Middle Class’ in the United States is slowly shrinking, and with it goes the vast majority of the governments tax revenue. Which means that no matter who is in charge or what ideas they come up with, the deficit will continue to grow, the interest alone is accounting for over $200 Billion dollars annually now.

The lack of taxable income from the nonexistent middle class will drive the vast lower class into a greater sense of poverty, while taxes on the upper class increase to compensate. Once taxes increase enough on the upper class, those who can still afford it will move out of the country to protect their money. The main issue with this comes when the upper 1% of the population that controls 90% of the nations wealth leaves the nation—keep in mind this wouldn’t be limited to CEOs, athletes, actors, and those handful of inventors that created the teat that our society now suckles at, but also many of the doctors, lawyers, engineers and the highly educated residents that hold places of prestige in our economy—This will drive the remaining U.S. population, nearly overnight, into the conditions of a third world country.

Many of the people who are left in the country will migrate en mass to Canada or Central America creating job shortages, homeless problems, and an enormous economic strain on those governments, leaving an even lower population within U.S. borders. The increasingly low number of doctors within the U.S. means that even minor diseases run rampant. Meanwhile stealing what they need to survive, the citizens that are left will overrun the cities, the military will try to control the chaos, soon realizing the cause is just and the need for survival is great. The military will join the citizens and take up arms to revolt against the government that created this situation. The ensuing chaos and anarchy will eventually lead to a Chinese takeover of U.S. soil.

This may seem a harsh exaggeration, but the ‘elected’ powers of this government have been the same bloodlines since the formation of this government, the same monarchies and dynasties our “patriots” fought so hard against, the same people who are creating the increasingly large gap between the upper class and the general population (or should I say Feudalism, the nobleman and the peasants, sound familiar?) they are the same people that raped and slaughtered the native population of this country, the same ones that enslaved Afro-Americans for nearly four hundred years. The same bloodlines that deceived and lied to the Native Americans have been lying and deceiving everyone since then.

The current economic state has been stewing for the past two generations; we have been duped into thinking that the pursuit of the American dream means a lack of general humanity! Who cares if the unemployment rate in our own country is nearing 22% (8-12% that we’re made aware of is typically only the people that are collecting unemployment) if I can save $0.001 a unit to have them manufactured in sweat shops overseas that’s ok. If I can save $3 million a year on labor, who cares if I shut down these factories and lay off thousands of people right here in my city. All it took to stop this was a “Made in USA” sticker when you went shopping, rather than the “Made in Pakistan,” or “Made in Taiwan,” or “Made in Hong Kong.”

I have to question, did we really “win” the American Revolution? Or have the British been behind the scenes the whole time teaching us the illusion of freedom? Another exaggeration I admit, but I feel my point remains clear.

People fight constantly, it’s the Democrats fault, or it’s the Republicans fault. How about the simple fact that it’s both parties faults. Why? Because the parties are really the same thing; face it, it’s the same select bloodlines that have been running this country since the beginning. The same kinds of monarchies and dynasty rulers our patriots fought so hard to break way from, have been masquerading as democratic elections. People say, it’s a democracy if you don’t like it, vote third party: two things wrong with that; there is no third party choice, the popular ‘third party’ now is the “Tea Party” but every elected official from the “Tea Party” has immediately aligned with the Republican Party after taking office. The second is that this country is not a democracy and never has been, it’s a socialist republic. We elect the people into office who the Republican and Democrats parade in front of us, we might get six or eight to choose from but they are all part of the same money, same bloodlines, that have been in power since the beginning, and it’s the same corporations and private sectors that back both parties.

There's no change, no hope, and no relief coming from this government. Our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal, unfortunately with the same regime we tried so hard to escape. The bottom line here is that the people need to realize after nearly two hundred and fifty years, mistakes have been made in the government of this country that cannot be corrected until a shift of power has occurred. We need to remove the two party system, remove the candidates that are back by capitalist corporations that have been outsourcing all of our jobs, so their CEOs can make a couple extra million, and remove the “Patriot Act” in all forms. The government has taken away our inherent right to privacy in the guise of ‘national security’ to tap the phones or in a recent case apply GPS trackers to the cars of individuals with absolutely no cause, meanwhile there’s little to no evidence pointing towards the effectiveness of this act. The government is trying to keep tabs on those individuals either of Middle Eastern decent or the ones who could create trouble for the ruling class, just like they did in the 60s and 70s when MLK, JFK, RFK, Malcolm X, and Medgar Evers were assassinated

The only way to improve the government at this point is to revolt against it.

See the LED light


An L.E.D. light lit for eight days, uses LESS oil than a conventional light bulb does in one day! With today's foreign oil dependence, we could use the oil used in the rededicated temple. That oil gave eight days of light with one day's supply. This is what is celebrated during Hanukkah, The Festival of Lights. Put LEDs in your menorah. See the light. Feel the freedom FROM oil dependence. 12/23/06 posting. There are now USB connected menorahs and tiny little switches for each day! Please click on the phrase "1 = Comments, Reactions, & Feedback." immediately below this sentence to read more on this posting!
