Robert Jones Posted August 11, 2006 Share Posted August 11, 2006 (edited) One of my personal flaws is that I will never read anything objectivists write about "chewing on ideas." It is sad, but nonetheless true. Not that I mind the concept, or the analogy, but I have a very vivid imagination.I first encountered the term "chewing" in a Leonard Peikoff taped lecture. Ever since then, I could not help but to form images in my head of Leonard Peikoff spelling out concepts with Alpha Bits cereal letters, and then chewing on them.Chewing ceaselessly, the processed oat cereal grinding between his molars........the milk dribbling from his chin........his eyes opening and closing in sync behind his TV set glasses........all the while, he doesn't stop his lecture, he just talks and talks and talks.That's why I have an aversion to that phrase from the objectivist lexicon.
