The whole issue of whether Neoism ever even had any theory is certainly a loaded one. I tend to be amused when Cantsin claims something like "Neoism is a movement to create the illusion that there's a movement called Neoism." I like this characterization not because it tells the truth, but because it's so expressive of the total elusiveness of it all. As Monty Cantsin has said when asked what his philosophy is, "I had a philosophy once."
