I just found out that the sole member of Sopor Aeternus
Sopor Æternus means sleep of death, or eternal sleep.
Nietzsche’s views and writing style are very different from Ayn Rand’s. I don’t agree with the majority of Ayn Rand’s views, I don’t think that “true” knowledge exists. Rand believes logic is based on reality, whereas I believe there is no true reality and that ideas and opinions are based solely on perception. Also, the purpose of Rand’s philosophy is to intimately achieve happiness by pursuing things selfishly. I believe happiness can be found anywhere through will, not only through goals.
I actually happen to dislike Ayn Rand for a variety of reasons. Her work is extremely overrated and in my opinion Atlas Shrugged is nowhere near as good as people say it is. The majority of people I’ve encountered only say it’s good because other people say it’s good, it isn’t really an opinion at this point. Opinions like that seem to be becoming something more dogmatic and cliché. Ayn Rand’s novels usually have a terrible plot and don’t really develop characters much and are mainly representations of her sub-standard philosophy. Also, she was a bitch. lol
