  1. poe, really! why not lovercraft!

    How about what the leet stranger said.

    For example (out of many) just open google earth, go to a major city and look at the port. The sheer size and geometry of the docks (use the ruler to compare a jersey or busan dock with central park), the immense complexity that allows the infrastructure of the World to keep moving.

    well, my suggestion of poe is based somewhat on the fact that during his time he was despised, unpopular, and unknown (i think.). Wouldn't this serve as somewhat of a parallel between, say, how society thinks Rearden is a complete you-know-what, and what he actually is? Poe is POSSIBLY credited for even creating the detective novel... I think, reading poe, kind of speaks for itself

  2. it's because a person can recognize something when it surprises them but can never guess what they didn't know what was going to happen and when people of differing intelligences come into contact the stupider one is going to want the things that the smarter person covets but won't know why they themselves should want it.

  3. Oh, they're out there. They are just to busy to make themselves known. Does the media have to be interested in you to be considered a great and amazing sucess? Or do your achievements qualify you only? I kinda always thought it was the latter.

    yeah that's what i was thinking too; especially that the really famous people of this world are jokes i.e. bill gates/ect. and the people who are the REAL movers of the world are people who others do everything in their power to steal from and thus can never rise or realize their fame/fortune.
