Aristotle (384 – March 7, 322 BC) was an ancient Geek, a philosopher, a student and pederastic partner of Plato, and teacher and sexual partner of Alexander the Great. He wrote books on many subjects, most of which he had no knowledge of and pretty much BS'd. These random subjects included physics, poetry, zoology, logic, rhetoric, government, biology, linguistics, Egyptian mythology, Chinese philosophers, Linux, Unix, Firefox, Google, Gmail, Opera, wikis, Aristotelianism, Platonism, early Christianity, Catholic dogma, Existentialism, Rationalism, philosophes, democracy in America, Communism, Capitalism, Anarchism, and Mercantilism.
Aristotle, along with Plato and Socrates, is generally considered one of the most influential of ancient Greek h4x0rz. They transformed Presocratic software conventions into the foundations of Freeware, Linux, and BSD as we know them. The writings of Plato and Aristotle founded two of the most important schools of Ancient computer operating systems, namely, Unix and Xerox PARC.

This carries across the very institutions of human existence- the human being in a social context, society in a paedophile context, and America in an Iraq context."
Aristotle to Alexander the Great
- Aristotle: "Why do I get the feeling you're going to be the death of me?"
Alexander: "Don't say that, master. You're the closest thing I have to a father."
Aristotle: "Then why don't you listen to me?"
- Aristotle: "You have allowed this Platonist to twist your mind, until now you have become the very thing you swore to destroy."
Alexander: "Don't lecture me, Aristotle. I see through the lies of the Aristotelians. I do not fear the Supernatural as you do. I have brought peace, freedom, justice and security to my new empire, much like in Plato's Republic!"
Aristotle: "Your new empire?"
Alexander: "Don't make me kill you."
Aristotle: "Alexander, my allegiance is to the polis, TO LOGIC!!"

Aristotle: "Only a Platonist deals in moral absolutes. I will do what I must."
Alexander: "You will try."
- Aristotle: "I have failed you, Alexander. I have failed you."
Alexander: "I should've known the Aristotelians were plotting to take over!"
Aristotle: "Alex, Xenocrates is illogical!"
Alexander: "From my point of view, the Aristotelians are illogical and can't write like shit compared to Plato!"
Aristotle: "Well, then you are lost!"
Alexander: "This is the end for you, my master."

Alexander: "Your mind is weak, old man."
Aristotle: "You can't win, Alex. If you strike me down, logic dictates that I shall become more powerful than you or any other Platonist can possibly imagine."
- Aristotle: I knew you would come. I thought I told you though, my son, that blood is thicker than water?
Alexander: Yes, you did, but Gold is thicker than Blood.
