  • a few months ago, our houses broken into.

  • No one was at home at the time when it happened, but it was surprising to find out.

  • Nonetheless, the word about the breaking got around quickly as news articles covered the event.

  • Most people were very supportive, of course, but a few people in the Internet took the news as a chance to celebrate, rationalizing it as since I have wealth and having to replace some items in my home.

  • Is this a minor inconvenience?

  • Really?

  • For once, our reaction about Mei was made completely without my influence.

  • Another irony is that nothing was stolen from the break in, at least personally, even my two most valuable items.

  • My camera and computer were left.

  • Whatever they took was from my wife.

  • Unfortunately, I have previously bean de cluttering in my house, But now I finally shifted to a new gear.

  • I got rid of anything.

  • I didn't want a ton of items that I only kept because I didn't want anyone else to have them, or at least take them like awards, all items that had barely any sentimentality, things I had stored away never to actually be used, if any item lacked value or utility.

  • I sold, donated or just got rid of it.

  • At the same time, I was reading about Diogenes, the ancient Greek philosopher who only lived with one item in his possession, which was a wooden bowl.

  • Even this he got rid of on the day when he saw a peasant boy drinking water by cupping his hands, he tossed the ball away and said, Fool that I am to have been carrying this superfluous baggage all this time.

  • There are many stories about Dia Ginny's.

  • Some seem too great to be true, but I'm glad to know he had leaves live.

  • You confined him on old paintings, which depicts him living in a barrel tub or, most commonly, a large yearn.

  • If you know about that, Arjun Easy most likely already know ofhis famous encounter with Alexander the great.

  • Alexander had heard about the Argenis philosophy and was personally intrigued by him some one day he suck out Di Argenis, who was relaxing on a field in the morning Sun Alexander as SIA Ginny's.

  • If there's any favor he could do for him, he would do it Bye.

  • Argenis then replied Yes, by moving away since you're covering the son, Alexander declared shortly after.

  • If I wasn't Alexander, then I wish to be dialled Ginny's.

  • This is such a perfect example of two extremes meeting each other.

  • I think the fact that Alexander, the World Lord, who had reached more status, wealth and power than anyone in this time could have ever dreamed of, still felt tumbled by Di Argenis, a man who had seemingly nothing coming to this conclusion.

  • He must have realized that the things we value actually carries little satisfaction on its own and all the things Alexander had done.

  • Others want it meant nothing to die.

  • Argenis, in my own experience, what little notoriety and wealth I have is still far greater than anything I could have dreamed off.

  • But the experience itself feels like it can be compared to N.

  • H e part of your body that is too far away to reach.

  • You want to scratch it to see what it would feel like to get rid of it.

  • The fantasy and the idea is always there of the pleasure and satisfaction it could give you until you finally managed to reach for it.

  • The sensation fades quickly and you're left the same.

  • Diogenes had nothing.

  • Alexander had everything, but only one of them were truly free.

  • What?

  • Willis Diogenes philosophy that even Alexander the Great became so interested in it.

  • I Argenis define and was considered one of the founders of cynicism.

  • This word doesn't have the same meaning than ask.

  • Today.

  • Senate meant dog or dog like, which was likely said to ridicule.

  • Dajun is, and it's strange behaviors.

  • He, however, took his name on itself because he actually praised the dog and its virtues despite it being used as an insult.

  • Aborigines didn't recognize society, and by doing so he considered himself above it.

  • He therefore didn't believe in shame and would do almost anything a dog would do in public.

  • He would be seen getting on the street.

  • If people insulted him, he would respond by urinating on them.

  • It was seen masturbating in public.

  • The list goes on.

  • A dog lives at ease.

  • They don't think about the past or the future.

  • They live only according to nature, just like Dia journeys.

  • Despite his obscene actions, Diogenes was still a philosopher.

  • But unlike many of his peers, he didn't recognize metaphysical ideas, says to him.

  • They're a waste of time and a distraction from the moment.

  • Yeah, Ginny's even had many famous encounter with one of my favorite philosophers, Plato.

  • These stories are also really great.

  • He would, for example, Shah himself during Plato's lectures just to distract the lesson.

  • But my favorite story is during one of Plato's lectures he was discussing the metaphysical ideal forms.

  • Plato said that all things have a pure essence.

  • Each thing has a form that defines their true being dial genies who didn't like metaphysical ideas challenge Plato and pointed towards a cup on the table.

  • What about this cup?

  • He said.

  • Is there an internal perfect cup?

  • Somewhere later responded.

  • Yes.

  • In fact, the cup can take many different forms, but there is a perfect form of cuteness that resides inside your head.

  • Then he supposedly insulted Dia journeys on his simple minded take of his complex ideas.

  • Maginnes then responded.

  • What about the emptiness inside the cub?

  • Is there a perfect form of emptiness that exists as well?

  • Played a pause for a moment to think.

  • But before he got to answer, the Argenis pointed to play his head and said, I think you'll find it's in here, where the emptiness recites finally, about Dia Ginny's death.

  • There isn't much confirmed about these, either.

  • Some people say he got poisoned by eating raw meat.

  • Others insist strongly that Dial Ginny's died one day when he decided to hold his own breath.

  • The Argenis final wish wasn't for a proper burial, but rather to be thrown over the gates of the city to have the rodents and animals feast on his body as a way for him to get back to the earth what he had taken from it.

  • Aborigines throughout history has often been referred to as Socrates Gone man.

  • Their minds were very different, but they both share is that neither of them wrote down their own ideas.

  • They lived them instead.

  • I don't think you'll see me living in a barrel anytime soon, but I think there's a lot to learn from Dia Ginny's.
