For the Cynics, the purpose of life was to live in virtue, in agreement with nature. As reasoning creatures, people could gain happiness by rigorous training and by living in a way which was natural for humans, rejecting all conventional desires for wealth, power, sex, and fame. Instead, they were to lead a simple life free from all possessions.

A very cool band.
This is a placeholder to my other pages, since I am just moving from a flaky service to github.
I am in the process of migrating my old wordpress blog to ikiwiki and it is soon going to appear at cynic.cc/blog/, if all the migration goes well.
The migration, for those interested, was made by a bunch
of Python scripts, many manual
tweakings, and a lot of tweaking
git. I can post
more precise steps later if desired.
