Target: Ayn Rand (1905–1982)
Target cue: “Describe the most important aspects of this person.”
I was semi-frontloaded because I knew the cue and that I was remote viewing a person, but I did not know who the person was.
Ayn Rand was a novelist, playwright, philosopher and amateur economist. Her philosophy, which she called Objectivism, rejects all forms of faith and religion, as well as ethical altruism. She is best known for her novels Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead. Although initially rejected in economic and academic circles, many of her theories have since been integrated into free market economics and continue to influence libertarians and conservative politicians.
My intention during these people sessions is to connect with the motivations and core beliefs of the target individual. In this session, I believe that I gained some insight about the origins of Rand’s philosophy. I perceived feelings of shock brought on by a tragedy. Something had been taken from her, which resulted in a new purpose in life. I perceived that the target was a person who was fighting overwhelming odds, yet thrived on that opposition and felt at home within it. This traumatic experience was both a blessing and a curse, because it freed her from certain constraints of thinking. It transformed her from innocence to adulthood very quickly. It defined her beliefs and gave her purpose and determination.
Rand was born into an affluent family in Russia. At the age of 12, during the Russian Revolution, the government confiscated her family’s fortune, which forced them to flee. Later, they returned, but remained destitute and almost starved to death. The data I received during this session indicated that her views about politics, economics and society were based on those experiences. However, I have not been able to confirm that connection.
