Ayn Rand, the founder of Objectivism, was an inspiration to Frank R Wallace.
Ayn Rand’s influence on early versions of Neo-Tech Power is obvious.
Wallace showed great admiration for Objectivism, particularly Ayn Rand’s novel Atlas Shrugged.
But Frank R Wallace quoted Ayn Rand as saying ‘save me from the Randians’.
Ayn Rand was her self repulsed by the cult-ish obsession coming from Objectivists at that time.
Neo-Tech sought to convert that rigid dogmatic cult following of Ayn Rand into a highly leveraged force of intelligence and influence.
In a 3-part clean-sweep…
- Objectivism extended Aristotle’s philosophy of A ‘is’ A
- But Alfred Korzybski took ‘is’ away.
- Frank R Wallace replaced it all with Neo-Tech Contextualism.
Wallace once suggested that Ayn Rand’s character John Galt had influential powers probably beyond realistic possibility. Ayn Rand claimed that her hero’s revealed the reality of man. Ayn Rand’s Objectivism seems to have provided no such real life hero (that I am aware of).
In fact, reading Ayn Rand’s early fiction, you can clearly see a natural dislike of reality that Rand seems to have imbued. Cuts from The Fountainhead show Howard Roarke as almost schizophrenic in his lack of mindfulness.
I seem to remember the character even claiming he was incapable of love. He clearly seemed that way in the cut edits that never made it into the published version of The Fountainhead.
Neo-Tech approaches human experience from a very different angle.
Neo-Tech’s evolution rises from research into the history of love, with human happiness as being the primary goal.
This was not clearly expressed in Ayn Rand’s writings. Perhaps it would have been her next novel, because Rand was still maturing in her ideas.
I believe Ayn Rand’s Objectivism cleared a path for Neo-Tech to evolve for providing the ‘human’ side of the hard facts of reality.
Similarities between Neo-Tech and Objectivism
Both Neo-Tech and Objectivism posit the primacy of existence to consciousness.
In easier language that simply means that reality must exist ‘before’ consciousness has a place to exist.
Platonic mysticism and Kant would argue that consciousness is primary, that reality is seated within this thing we call consciousness. Both Neo-Tech and Objectivism strongly disagree.
Differences between Neo-Tech and Objectivism
Objectivism used 5 classifications of philosophy. Here they are with the Objectivist keyword for each category in the brackets.
I’m going to call them:
- Oist Metaphysics (reality),
- Oist Epistemology (knowledge),
- Oist Politics (capitalism),
- Oist Aesthetics (never defined), and
- Oist Ethics (selfishness).
- NT Metaphysics (business),
- NT Epistemology (Neo-Think),
- NT Politics (no initiation of force),
- NT Aesthetics (value reflection)
- NT Ethics (value creation), and
Perhaps Frank R Wallace and Ayn Rand would have come to rather narrow agreements in a personal discussion. Wallace would certainly have seen far and wide. Ayn Rand might have slapped his face.
Neo-Tech broadens the reach of Objectivism, both philosophically, and commercially.
Time to turn Objectivism’s potential into a renewed global commercial influence that helps clean-sweep the threat of force from Earth – by upholding the Prime Law: No Initiation of Force which is now the focus of the new Twelve Visions Party of America.
