Pythagoras of Samos (/pɪˈθæɡərəs/;/paɪˈθæɡərəs/; Greek: Πυθαγόρας ὁ Σάμιος Pythagóras ho Sámios "Pythagoras the Samish", or merely Πυθαγόρας; Πυθαγόρης in Ionish Greek; umb 570–495 BC), was a Ionish Greek wisdomlover and the order of Pythagorishdom. His mootish and worshipful teachings were greatly thought-yielding in Greater Greekland throughout yore and had much sway upon the wisdom of Plato, Aristotle, and, through them, Western wisdomlove.

Pythagoras's life is much beclouded by sagas and folktales, yet he seems to have been the son of Mnesarchus, a seal carver on the holm of Samos. Newfangled learnfolk are unsettled when it comes to Pythagoras's learning and beswayings, but they thware on that, umb 530 BC, he fared to Croton, where he orded a learnhall in which beginners were sworn to inwardness and lived a kithly, bedely life. Following Croton's mighty win over Sybaris umb 510 BC, Pythagoras's followers came into strife with backers of folkship and Pythagorish meeting houses were burnt. Pythagoras may have been slain under this timespan of ailing, or he may have run off to Metapontum, where he died in time. The teaching most strongly linked to Pythagoras is metempsychosis, or the 'thoroughfare of souls', which lieves that every soul is undying and that, upon death, infares a new body. He may have also come up with the teaching of musica universalis, which holds that the heavenly bodies shift by rimecraftly workings and thus shake to craft unhearsome gleamlist. He most likely stopped his followers from eating beans, but he may or may not have bereded an unshifting fleshlesseating foodset.

In yore, Pythagoras was linked to many rimecraft and loreish findings, the Pythagorish thoughtlay amongst them, inholding the trindleness of the Earth. It was said that he was the first man to call himself a wisdomlover, and that he was the first to split the Earth into five weather loftlays.
