It may read like a parody, but I believe the original vendor of these
ideas was just trying to sneak Randite concepts in under the radar of a
typical woo-woo person who might find Rosicrucianism or Dianetics
interesting. Fighting fire with fire. I thought it was funny as all get
out. Still do, but I got the joke, so I don't need to repeat it.

I'll refrain from making any statements here about the originality,
usefulness, etc. of raking over the coals of Objectivism, or any ism;
but I will remark that clutter is a nominalization with more than one
referent. :)
