Plato's theory of reality

Allegory of the Cave, Brings back memories of a college essay I wrote.
I ended up with an A- in the class. Summarizing briefly here; the shadows on the wall are human perception enslaved. Perception can play tricks on reality as Plato illustrates. When the prisoner is freed from the world of only shadows on the wall his perception transcends to the world of reality.

Kind of like watching only Fox News. That Plato was a smart guy.

and then you die
