Plato’s allegory of the Cave tells us much about ourselves as a whole. It describes how we perceive the world around us and how we can come to the wrong conclusion with regard to our perception of reality. Right now knowledge is at a premium and it heeds us to pay attention to information that could be the difference of to be or not to be. That isn’t a question, it’s a percentage. The difference in being is based on accurate knowledge of the situation in order to see the situation clearly. Don’t be caught staring at the wall of the cave.
