My self-summary
My name is Plato but nothing about our relationship will be platonic (ZING). I was born in 427 B.C. in Aegina (or Athens), Greece. I used to be the student of my best friend Socrates but now I teach at my own school. The curriculum has to do with the most important philosophical questions every human being should address. My crash introductory course is The Allegory of the Cave. Basically, I introduce people to the reality that they are living in a world of shadows while the real forms, the Ideal forms, exist in a higher, more True world than this called the Noumenal World. The Allegory of the Cave, although a literary device (and I hate literary devices) works well to get the point across. Now don't believe the rhetoricians out there that are going to try to persuade you otherwise: there IS one Absolute Truth. All the things you see in this world are merely imperfect reflections of it. In the famous words of Biggie Smalls: IF YOU DON'T KNOW, NOW YOU KNOW [blank]. People that diabolically try to teach you otherwise, teaching you rhetoric without a moral compass, are straight manipulators. AVOID THEM AT ALL COST.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm TRYING to dissuade people from living in The Cave. I'm a slave to this ideal (hah-hah) so I'm spending my whole life recruiting as many people as possible into the small ring of Philosopher-Kings meant to bring about an Earthen Utopia. Of course, this Earthen Republic would be no match to what it reflects, The Noumenal World, but it would be a whole metric shitload better than what we live in now. I have a School, called The Academy if you want to check it out and hear my lectures, so I spend a bunch of time there too educating people and stuff.
I’m really good at
practically everything, if you want the Truth. I'm good with dialectic speech. I'm good at teaching by using the Socratic Method. I'm good at giving advice because I don't try to manipulate people. I'm good at intense concentration and studying.
The first things people usually notice about me
are my awesome robes and my eloquent way of speaking and thinking.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
NOTHING. NONE OF THAT MATTERS. THAT'S ALL MIMETIC BULLSHIT AND IT'S DISTRACTING YOU BY CAUSING YOU TO BELIEVE IN THE REAL, PHYSICAL WORLD AND THE ILLUSIONS CONTAINED WITHIN THAT CONCEPT. If you want to read something, read what I write. That's the only way you're safe. You think you like food? You like cookery, so you suck. You're tricking your tastebuds into thinking something is healthy when you could be taking medicine and doing gymnastics and tightening up those sweet abs that I know you could have. I am obviously searching for gay males but I want to make it clear that cosmetics of any kind are NOT my thing.
The six things I could never do without
1.) Philosopher-Kings (because I am one. I mean, I could not physically exist without myself.) (or could I?)
2.) The Noumenal World.
3.) Socrates and/or all of his sublime teaching.
4.) The single Absolute Truth
5.) Dialectics
6.) You in my open, loving arms.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The Noumenal World. When you say "thinking about" I'm just going to assume you mean remembering and recollecting. That's what I'm doing when I'm "thinking about" the Noumenal World.
On a typical Friday night I am
going to parties and debating things. Usually I'm hammered but I still have a pretty decent mastery of the Greek Language in that state. It is at least sufficient enough to wipe the floor with the Sophist arguments. That, OR I'm writing psuedo-plays starring my first love, Socrates. I just write what I want to say but I put it in his mouth because it's more literary and possibly more concise (I say that sort of ironically).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I secretly like rhetoric. I am secretly an artist. I hate myself.
You should message me if
you want to party. I am ALWAYS down to party.
