Dear Diary – #WILT

Today I learnt about Plato’s cave allegory.

This allegory is about the truth and the refusal of the people to see it.

It says that once upon a time all the people lived chained in a wall in a cave and they didn’t know about the outside world. The only light that they had was a big, always burning fire which they couldn’t see and they saw the shadows of cuts out of everything. But one day, one of them became unchained, he saw the fire and went out of the cave. Then he saw the sun and the real world and he realized that everything in the cave that they consider real was only shadows. Later he went back to the cave to tell to others about the outside world. But they didn’t believed him and consider him crazy and killed him.

It is an interesting philosophical story.
