Philosophy by Numbers

Philosophy By Numbers

You might have seen those "painting by numbers" teachers, who'll show a budding artist how to do hue, tone and shadow by numbering colours and writing the right number in the right place. Well, that works for philosophy too. This is a set of factioneers' musings on their own beliefs, which you can use as these numbers. When you read something that causes a stirring deep down inside -- a revelation of your own personal truth, perhaps -- then you've more than likely discovered the faction for you.

If none of 'em do that, you're either a terminal clueless, or a true visionary. Go find your own belief, whatever it may be!
