This matter is on an entirely different plane than the motivations and goals of Howard Roark. Where Ellsworth and Wynand have the thought of control being gained in the forefront of their minds throughout each step they take, Roark only wishes to do that which he enjoys and provides him with self-gratification. This is what separates the men across such a distant expanse.
