Galt is (also) a place in Canada, as well as Mongolia, as well as 5 places in the U.S.A.
Ayn Rand famously opens Atlas Shrugged with 'Who is John Galt?'
Her philosophy is called 'Objectivism'
Objectivism rejects belief in "every 'spiritual' dimension, force, Form, Idea, entity, power, or whatnot alleged to transcend existence."
"My philosophy, in essence, is the concept of man as a heroic being, with his own happiness as the moral purpose of his life, with productive achievement as his noblest activity, and reason as his only absolute."
She chose "objectivism" as the title for her philosophy because,
"The name "Objectivism" derives from the principle that human knowledge and values are objective: they are not created by the thoughts one has, but are determined by the nature of reality, to be discovered by man's mind. Rand chose the name because her preferred term for a philosophy based on the primacy of existence, existentialism, had already been taken."
