According to Diogenes society was an artificial contrivance set up by human beings which did not accord well with truth or virtue and could not in any way make someone a good and decent human being; and so follows the famous story of Diogenes holding the light up to the faces of passers-by in the market place looking for an honest man or a true human being. Everyone, he claimed, was trapped in this make-believe world which they believed was reality and, because of this, people were living in a kind of dream state. He was not the first philosopher to make this claim; Heraclitus, Xenophanes, and, most famously, Socrates all pointed out the need for human beings to wake from their dream state to full awareness of themselves and the world. Plato's famous Allegory of the Cave is devoted to this very theme. Diogenes, however, confronted the citizens of Athens daily with their lifelessness and shallow values, emulating his hero Socrates whom he never met but would have learned of from Antisthenes. Although it seems many people thought he was simply mentally ill, Diogenes would have claimed he was living a completely honest life and others should have the courage to do the same.

“I helped you.” Ryan showed no fear. With impunity, she glared into those luminous eyes. “I saved your life.”
Jeremy chuckled. “You think that argument will save you?”

She gulped saliva then air. Horror rose in her heart. She scooted back toward the sidewalk. Relentless, he kept the blade under her chin. Her voice trembled in desperation.
“I’ll scream. Security will come.”
The man snorted. “You’re either brave or stupid.”
“I’m not stupid.” For a moment, Ryan did not know what her opponent would do. Would he repay her for saving his life? Or, would he kill her for it?
