The Fountainhead

I’m starting to understand. The dots are starting to connect. My personal journey is taking me, with slow, roundabout circles, towards a philosophy, a state of being. That’s what this is really all about and anyone into game who doesn’t get this is focusing on their pointed finger and missing all the heavenly glory of the moon at which it’s pointing.

Part of what brought on my hiatus recently was that I started reading The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand and everything else lost relevance. From the fascinating, powerful character of Howard Roark you can learn a lot about this target philosophy. Some of the key writers in game are well aware of this target state and their opinions overlap.

Let’s start with what Ayn Rand. From “The Fountainhead“:

“Then you do need other people, after all, don’t you, Howard?”

“Of couse. What are you laughing at?”

“I’ve always thought that you were the most anti-social animal I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting.”

“I need people to give me work. I’m not building mausoleums. Do you suppose I should need htem in some other way? In a closer, more personal way?”


“You’re not even boasting about it.”

“Should I?”

“You can’t. You’re too arrogant to boast.”

“Is that what I am?

“Don’t you know what you are?”

“No. Not as far as you’re seeing me, or anyone else.”

Heller sat silently, his wrist describing circles with a cigarette. Then Heller laughed, and said:

“That was typical.”


“That you didn’t ask me to tell you what you are as I see you. Anybody else would have.”

And we have Ross Jeffries in his new book “Secrets of Speed Seduction Mastery” saying:

True, deep confidence that resonates in the deep mind, heart, sould and body of a woman consists of walking through the world without needing a guarantee, without making excuses and without inflicting yoruself on the other person. This is crucial.

Another way to put it is that you don’t back away from your desires, but you also won’t inflict yourself on others.

And finally putting it all together like a wise gnome we have RSD’s Owen Cook/Tyler Durden in the wonderful “The Blueprint“:

Walking through the world with ease… take all these aspects; core confidence, strong reality, acting through intentions, masculine polarity, being present, put them all in one concept and get Walking Through The World With Ease.
