So I just figured something out

Socrates was imaginary

Think about it, the things he said would not only take hours to accurately think out, but everyone he talked to was more likely to answer "Yes" or "No" than to assert their own beliefs in the dialogues. I was thinking because of this Socrates may have been made up by Plato to assert the foundations of living a good, Athenian life in the realms of the law.

This isn't new for Rome or Greece to do. We all know now that Homer imagined the Odyssey and Iliad, they weren't records of actual events and included plenty of fantasy that is all but evident now.

Plato made the idea of a perfect philosopher and sold it to the crowd with the support of many. The "Socratic Problem" relates to the idea that we do not truly know the real Socrates because we only know second hand accounts, this is because the second hand accounts are the only Socrates.

He has no "testament" of being prosecuted, no actual records, only the fiction that was made to allude to him.

You're welcome

Maybe he was so great, that all they could answer was Yes/No.
He'd ask them a question and answer it for them, then scouting if it were an ignorant fuck or an accepting human. If you know what I'm getting at. I like doing the same thing, to the ones you come across as a narcissist, they can just go fuck themselves. They're the narcissist :^D

Actually Homer is thought to be made up and the stories were oral traditions that were finally written down.

Well discuss it with the 3 or 4 ancient history profs who told me he wasn't real.

Sorry to break it to you but you aren't the first one to think this. I can't site who right now, because I'm too lazy and it's bollocks, but there are a lot of strange HYPOTHESES enCIRCLING the Hellenistic hunk, So Cratez, including one that he or several people traveled from Athens to the east and got their info for Socratic philosophy from Eastern philosophical soirces. I mean both eastern and western philosophy had similar conclusions at the time but I don't believe this hypothesis. I think the good ol' Græcean Gadfly was real. :-) :-)

Not saying it doesn't make sense of that you do not have good points. I think the dialogues were faked? How would he remember that much dialogue. It was just the only way he knew how to write. Or the person that wrote the existing forms of the M.S.es
