Remember when in Objectivist Epistemology Rand dismissed Wittgenstein's entire philosophy (which was directly related to and the most prominent counter-argument against exactly what she was asserting) by saying that it was a "perfect description of the state of a mind out of focus"--?

That seems very similar to what you're doing here. Being and Time seems like one of the most important points at which philosophy has dismantled the CTMU kind of present-at-hand ontology. It would actually be interesting to see you engage with it and how your philosophy would rebut or agree with it.

I was actually referring to his obscure writing style, not his ideas, but I can see how that would be confusing.
