The Invention of Philosophy

My facebook page has been UNHACKED! So if you unfollowed me after weird stuff was posted, please refollow. I still am trying to get the name changed back but this is the page:

Description: Thales and his wife are sleeping in bed, he suddenly sits up and shouts: "My God, I've got it! What if we try thinking about stuff! "

Thale's Wife: "Go to bed Thales, it's two in the morning."
Thales: "Is it though? Maybe time is an illusion, did you ever think of that? Huh?!"
Thales Wife: "Whatever, just go to sleep."

Description: The next day Thales in drinking with his friends.

Thales: "Alright guys, we are going to try something different today. I call it: philosophy."
Heraclitus: "What is that?"
Thales: "It's where we think about stuff...and try to figure out the truth about the world."

Heraclitus: "Sounds weird. Can't we just drink and talk about who we want to have sex with, like usual?"
Thales: "No! We are going to try to find the truth. So...any ideas about the ultimate nature of reality?"

Pythagoras: "I don't get it. What are we supposed to do?"
Thales: "Like what about this, what if everything was actually composed of water?"
Pythagoras: "What, like...everything?"

Thales: "Yes, everything! Because water can take other forms."
Pythagoras: "Yeah but...even music?"
Thales: "Look, I just invented philosophy this morning, so lay off, okay? There are no bad ideas."
Heraclitus: "Ohh, I think I'm starting to get it. Like, what if everything was really composed of...fire. "
Thales: "Good, Heraclitus, and why is that?"

Heraclitus: "Because fire... can take other forms."
Democritus: "I get it, what if everything was composed of very small things?"

Heraclitus: "Is it because very small things can be arranged in other forms, Democritus?"
Democritus: "Exactly. Man, philosophy is easy."

Thales: "Alright guys, you can't just say “everything is composed of...” and then name the first thing that comes to mind. There is more to philosophy than that."

Pythagoras: "What if everything is composed of...numbers!"
Democritus: "Whoa, trippy!"
Heraclitus: "Good one Pythagoras."

Thales, angrily: "Alright, that's it, you've ruined it. No more philosophy. Philosophy is stupid and i regret inventing it. "
"What if everything is composed of regret?"
