Philosopher
    (circa 540 BC-circa 475 BC)
    Wrote 'On Nature'
    He was nicknamed 'The Dark One.'
    He believed that everything was in constant change and ultimately composed of fire.
    He hated all of his predecessors.
    He thought that humans were stupid and encouraged the Ephesians to hang themselves.
    To quote him on why he would not drink: 'A man, when he gets drunk, is lead by a beardless lad, tripping, knowing not where he steps, having his soul moist.'
    He was asked to impart his wisdom by writing some laws for Ephesus. Instead, he played dice with children at the temple of Artemis.
    After that, he gave up on city life and lived on a mountain.
    He developed dropsy, and when he visited a group of doctors, he asked them the riddle: 'How do you make a drought out of rainy weather' instead of seeking treatment.
    He then buried himself up to his neck in a pile of cow manure, thinking that the heat would cure him ... he died shortly there after.
    Although only fragments of his work has survived, he is extremely influential.
    After reading his book, Socrates said: 'What I understand is splendid; and I think that what I don't understand is too--but it would take a Delian diver to get to the bottom of it.'
