Ayn Rand has a theory that is completely valid and can never be proven or disproven. How she gets credit for being an original thinker can be disproven. No human being can prove that they are NOT the only REAL human. The whole universe may well be a figment of MY imagination, but I am not willing to put all my eggs in that basket. I wish pompous little AYN would have had a Bhuddist mentor help her find some humility. Well, There was a Monk in training about 9,000 years B.A.R.(BEFORE AYN RAND) who asked his master about this very theory. The Master told the boy to MEDITATE ON HIS NOSE and report back. The young man ran in after 2 days to report his great revelation. MASTER, I GET IT,MY NOSE DOESNT EXIST! The master hauled off and punched him in the nose. WHAT HURTS? he asked.
Could a broken nose have prevented all this nonsense?
