Rand Was Wrong

I'm looking over Objectivist theory (again) and I realized something she'd said was incorrect.

Her three 'axioms' (existence, identity, and consciousness) aren't all provable.

The only provable is consciousness (see Descartes if you don't think you are).

One only has to have seen The Matrix or Dark City to know that both identity and existence itself could be just 'a show'.

And you know, I've got plenty of reason to suspect it's just a show.  I've mentioned it before.
