A Brief Description of Mr. T. A. R. For Newcomers

Updated: May 8

An angry man

Tomasio Avichen Rubinshtein was born on the 7th of December 1997 and has lived in Israel for all of his life. In 2011, he was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome, now known as Autistic Spectrum Disorder, and even though he will be 24 this December 2021, he has managed to write seven books in two languages, along with a website that contains hundreds of his articles in English.

Regarding his education, he has fully graduated high school, and received some higher education as well, only leaving it behind after reaching the conclusion that, you don’t have to be an academic in order to be a philosopher.

Due to his ASD, along with other disabilities such as chronic fatigue, Rubinshtein cannot work in a "normal" job, and is thus confined to living on welfare for the rest of his life. Nonetheless, this does not stop him from achieving his goal in life — to philosophize as much as possible, and to leave a legacy of it for the world to read, browse, and enjoy, mainly in the form of Philosocom, his website.

As a philosopher, Rubinshtein has written on a large variety of philosophical subjects and questions. He believes that, in order to philosophize, only the use of the mind is imperative. After all, great philosophers such as Socrates and Epictetus did not use "research" in order to reach the insights they have attained.

Rubinshtein’s content is read by people from all over the world, most notably the United States but also other countries such as India. On average, his content is being read by people from most continents of the world, and if a day has been more successful than usual, then all continents.

Furthermore, he has amassed a collection of testimonials from people all over the world, which can be found on Google and MyWot.

Due to his disabilities, Rubinshtein has a poor social understanding of the world, and because of that, some people might find him arrogant, even though that is far from the case. He tried learning how to communicate properly in high school, but these studies weren’t sufficient, as reality has shown.

He has virtually no other purpose in life other than to write and share philosophical content of his own. If it weren’t for his disabilities, he could’ve gone more far in life, but alas, in order to find a sense of peacefulness in life, he partially isolates himself from the world and only communicates with very few people on average.

As a peace-seeker, he wishes to cause no harm to anyone, and just wants to write in peace but also share his writings in the public domain; something that could be problematic due to his high sensitivity (which is also a product of his disabilities).

In summary, Tomasio Rubinshtein is a disabled, peace-seeking, mastery-seeking philosopher, who has basically dedicated his entire life to this very craft of writing philosophical content.

Given that he has already written so much, despite his youth, he has another vision in mind: to be read by as many people as possible. He thus seeks to expand his internet empire to include as many useful social media platforms as possible.
