Not sure about aspergers, but I can share my experience as schizoid.
As a schizoid, there's a blurred line between internal and external world, leaning towards internal. Abstract concepts, ideas, fantasies, somehow feel more "real" than immediate physical reality. You can have the most vivid emotional experiences in your own imagination, and at the same time be completely detached from your real life presence.
It creates this derealized feeling where reality itself feels unreal, and a mere shadow of a higher, more ideal reality of abstract concepts and ideas. I live 90% of my life in my own head. Immediate physical experiences are nothing more than meaningless images happening in order, with no conclusion or theme.
And your body itself is nothing but an external entity, no different in its "otherness" than the rest of the biosphere. Your true "self", and the true world is inside your mind, that your body simply happens to be attached to, being its own symbiotic organism, with its own agendas. After all, your body doesn't have to consult your mind if if it decides to have urges or destroy itself by becoming cancerous.
So, the idea that your "self" and the "other" is divided by your body is entirely artificial. Your body is simply part of the whole rest of physical reality, and your mind is the extent of mental reality.
From that it follows that inanimate objects have feelings as long as your project feelings onto them, since inanimate objects have been model representations in your mind all along, and if you can imagine them feeling, then they ARE feeling, since all feeling, even of other humans, is in your mind in the first place. Your mind is the extent of your reality, objects are part of your mind, and if there's a feeling happening in your mind in relation to an object, it's real by definition.
