Proofs of Objectivism A. Philosophical Proofs 1. The Matrix shows that it is possible to feel in touch with reality but actually be out of touch with reality, as in the case of Neo before he met Morpheus and took the red pill—which would not be possible if Subjectivism were true. 2. The Matrix shows that the hero is the one who leaves his dream world and comes to grips with the real world and the bad guy is the one who escapes reality and would rather be in a dream world. The hero is Neo , and the bad guy is Cypher . If Subjectivism were true, Cypher would be the good guy. 3. The Matrix shows that a “free mind” is a mind that is in touch with reality, which is the definition of a free mind according to Objectivism . 4. According to Subjectivism , a “free mind” doesn’t bother with objective reality. 5. Therefore Subjectivism is wrong. True or False? 6. A Subjectivist cannot consider an Objectivist to be right. True or False? 7. A Subjectivist cannot consider an Objectivist to be wrong. True or False? 8. This is absurd, and so Subjectivism is absurd. True or False? 9. Objectivity should not happen in a purely subjective universe. True or False? 10. Objectivity does happen. True or False? 11. Subjectivism is wrong. True or False? 12. Subjectivists base their lives on what? (A) Facts. (B) Feelings. 13. The people in the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center felt safe one second before the first terrorist- piloted plane struck on September 11, 2001. True or False? 14. The people in the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center were safe one second before the first terrorist- piloted plane struck on September 11, 2001. True or False ? 15. Whether I’m in the WTC or Loyola Hall, my feelings tell me about what? (A) Reality. (B) Myself. 16. Therefore I should base my life on facts and reality, not feelings, and so be an Objectivist. True or False? 17. It is impossible to be Subjectivist all the time. True or False?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
