Description:

Born in the year 287 BCE, Archimedes was a Greek philosopher,mathematician, physicist, engineer, inventor, astronomer, and general practical man. A very famous portrait of his life depicts Archimedes confounded on how to determine if a trinket of gold was pure gold or if a dishonest smelter mixed it with silver or some worthless metal. One night, while jacking off in his bath, he noticed that the trinket displaced an amount of water equal to its volume. By dividing the weight of the crown by the volume of water displaced, the density of the crown could be obtained. The density of the crown would be lower than that of gold if less valuable metals had been added. Archimedes then took to the streets naked, so excited by his discovery that he had forgotten to dress, crying "Eureka!" (Greek: "ερηκα!," meaning "I have found it!")

Yeah, I know I'm not in direct sequence with the other philosophers here, but I did influence them strongly. Seniority rules.

He now presides in Shartak, along with other legends of time, a cold dead shell of his old self, plowing the land and reaping its rewards, all while staring into the empty sky...
