Not only might have he given you fits in your high school geometry class, this mysterious figure coined the word philosophy, was initiated in the Orphic & Egyptian Mysteries, understood the universe as a harmony of music, math and magic, and founded perhaps the first egalitarian, ascetic cadre of freethinkers in the West. He influenced most of the greatest philosophers of Greece including Plato. Whether in history and in legendry, this man is the grandfather of most esoteric schools of thought our culture. You know him simply as Pythagoras.
