Philosophy. What would the world be without it? Many people seem to see things as the four walls around them and the one ceiling above. This article is going to attempt to explain how to break free of those four walls and not have the ceiling fall on you.

Steps

Three different "types" of philosophers. There are many different kinds, but these three are noteworthy. Several others may be added at a later date. :)

Method 1
A. Creative Philosopher

These Philosophers are very poetic and...well...creative. For example, Plato may be considered as a creative philosopher. (and a fun clay, too!) To be this kind of philosopher, you must free your imagination and mind. Allow your mind to have no bounds. Here's some advice:

    Don't let the laws of the universe get in your way. Remember: With every Law there's a loophole and every loophole has a bound by which another law can be bent. Don't try this in court, unless you're skilled at finding these....

Method 3
C. Philosophers of Insanity

These philosophers study and philosophize about many different topics. They have much more freedom in their work.
