What’s Plato got to do with it?

Philosophy and metaphysics gurus, do you remember Plato’s Allegory of the Cave? A Socratic dialogue in Plato’s Republic, the allegory imagines a group of captives chained inside an underground cave.

The prisoners can only stare directly forward.

Above and behind them, a great fire blazes, while between the fire and the captives stands a partition.

Now imagine, the allegory’s narrator asks, that a captive is allowed to leave.
