|New to RoR, I found Luke's article on Neo-tech a mirror of my own experience. After reading mountains of literature from the Neo-tech society, I began to see the irony in what they were preaching. At first it seems they are explaining a whole new philisophical paradigm, but under closer scrutiny their using differing vocabulary to define Rand's "objectivism". I do agree with the authors of Neo-tech on many things; I just find their lack of depth uninspiring. Not to mention, their promise of Love, wealth and ever-lasting life, to lure new customers, is far from the reality of social dynamics. For them to pat themselves on the back for every good decision that a person makes, and to say it was Zon-power, Neo-think or defending against Neo-cheaters is absurd. |
People need answers. That is why we are all searching. It is a beatiful thing to witness the different perspectives of everyone on this posts. In all, no philosophical idea will match perfectly with the dynamic human mind. We are constantly influenced by all stimuli. Trying to define every persons' ideas, thoughts, emotions, needs of faith, and futures is like trying to eat an egg with out cracking the shell. I am just glad that we as a human race have had people like Rand, Wallace, Jaynes, Aristotle, Plato, Jesus, Mohammad and us to keep trying. I hope everyone enjoys tomorrow. For, it is a beautiful day.
