"The Allegory of the Cave" - GESARA Thought - 5.21.18

5/21/2018 01:33:00 AM  Thoughts  


The Post GESARA (GCR/RV) Allegory

The ‘Allegory Of The Cave’ is a theory put forward by Plato, concerning human perception. Plato claimed that knowledge gained through the senses is no more than opinion and that, in order to have real knowledge, we must gain it through philosophical reasoning.

‘The Allegory of the Cave’ by Plato

In the Allegory of the Cave, Plato distinguishes between people who mistake sensory knowledge for the truth and people who really do see the truth. It goes like this:

The Cave

Imagine a cave, in which there are three prisoners. The prisoners are tied to some rocks, their arms and legs are bound and their head is tied so that they cannot look at anything but the stonewall in front of them.

These prisoners have been here since birth and have never seen outside of the cave.

Behind the prisoners is a fire, and between them is a raised walkway.

People outside the cave walk along this walkway carrying things on their head including; animals, plants, wood and stone.

The Shadows

So, imagine that you are one of the prisoners. You cannot look at anything behind or to the side of you – you must look at the wall in front of you.

When people walk along the walkway, you can see shadows of the objects they are carrying cast on to the wall.

If you had never seen the real objects ever before, you would believe that the shadows of objects were ‘real.’

The Game

Plato suggests that the prisoners would begin a ‘game’ of guessing which shadow would appear next.

If one of the prisoners were to correctly guess, the others would praise him as clever and say that he were a master of nature.

The Escape

One of the prisoners then escapes from their bindings and leaves the cave.

He is shocked at the world he discovers outside the cave and does not believe it can be real.

As he becomes used to his new surroundings, he realizes that his former view of reality was wrong.

He begins to understand his new world, and sees that the Sun is the source of life and goes on an intellectual journey where he discovers beauty and meaning

He sees that his former life, and the guessing game they played, is useless.

The Return

The prisoner returns to the cave, to inform the other prisoners of his findings.

They do not believe him and threaten to kill him if he tries to set them free.

The Meaning

The Allegory of the cave by Plato should not be taken at face value. One should try to have a deeper understanding of the meaning of the theory. You can then use these to think about criticisms and then to form your own opinion.

The Cave

In Plato’s theory, the cave represents people who believe that knowledge comes from what we see and hear in the world – empirical evidence. The cave shows that believers of empirical knowledge are trapped in a ‘cave’ of misunderstanding.

The Shadows

The Shadows represent the perceptions of those who believe empirical evidence ensures knowledge. If you believe that what you see should be taken as truth, then you are merely seeing a shadow of the truth. In Plato’s opinion you are a ‘pleb’ if you believe this (their insult for those who are not Philosophers)!

The Game

The Game represents how people believe that one person can be a ‘master’ when they have knowledge of the empirical world. Plato is demonstrating that this master does not actually know any truth, and suggesting that it is ridiculous to admire someone like this.

The Escape

The escaped prisoner represents the Philosopher, who seeks knowledge outside of the cave and outside of the senses.

The Sun represents philosophical truth and knowledge

His intellectual journey represents a philosopher's journey when finding truth and wisdom

The Return

The other prisoners' reaction to the escapee returning represents that people are scared of knowing philosophical truths and do not trust philosophers.

As an individual, questions have to be asked ? Are you chained to a chair and make decisions based on perceived beliefs gained from shadows or do you escape your chains and search for the light of truths? And if you are lucky enough to realize you been fooled and escape the cave, what type of person will you become? Will you continue on your journey of truth and leave those in the dark behind to fend and discover for themselves or will you return to the cave and free and educate those left behind?

In my humble opinion, depending on the truth you are searching for, truth can be a very fierce awakening and scary. We all find it very hard to change our perceptions and accept the truth when it is contrary to the beliefs we have been fed our entire life. In the “ THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE BUT FIRST IT COULD PISS YOU OFF"

AND ... Just as the "Wizard of Oz" was an Allegory about The Federal Reserve, so NOW Plato serves us up with our POST GESARA Allegory of The Cave!

In-Joy,
