Holosensuality

 

This website could save your death.
It is dedicated to two Diogenes:

the self-outcast anti-hypocrite of Sinope

and the rich Diogenes of Oinouanda
who had a wall built in the centre of the town
proclaiming the anti-commercial philosophy of Epicurus.



It has been awarded status by the

Savonarola-Djugashvili International Foundation for Truth and Reconciliation
