  3. The Myth of the Cave

    plato-allegory-of-the-cave.jpg?fit=900,5

    Plato’s Allegory of the Cave: In Plato’s The Republic, he writes:

    “See human beings as though they were in an underground cave-like dwelling with its entrance, a long one, open to the light across the whole width of the cave.  They are in it from childhood with their legs and necks in bonds so that they are fixed, seeing only in front of them, unable because of the bond to turn their head all the way around.”

    Every day, these people in the caves watched shadows projected on a blank wall. For them, these shadows are real and they shape their entire reality.

    Now imagine that one of the prisoner’s leaves the cave and walks outside into the sunshine.

    For the first time in his life, he is exposed to sunshine and light. He can now finally see the “true” forms, shapes and reality of the shadows he thought were real.

    Now, if he returned back to the cave and told them about what he saw, they’d probably laugh at him and think he was crazy.

    The best way to learn from Plato’s Allegory of the Cave, is to think of the people trapped in the cave.

    What about the person who escaped the cave?

    This represents the small handful of people who dare to think and act in a different way from the crowd.

    They don’t have an imagined “shadow” reality because they’ve stepped outside their comfort zone into the “sunshine” to uncover the true reality of life.

    These people live a life with limitless possibilities and often change the course of history.

     Finally, remember that it’s not enough to leave the cave. It’s much more important that you stay outside of the cave.
