And ‘Allegory of the Cave’.
The Allegory of the Cave, or Plato’s Cave, is an allegory presented by the Greek philosopher Plato in his work Republic (514a–520a) to compare “the effect of education (παιδεία) and the lack of it on our nature”. It is written as a dialogue between Plato’s brother Glaucon and his mentor Socrates, narrated by the latter. The allegory is presented after the analogy of the sun (508b–509c) and the analogy of the divided line (509d–511e).
In the allegory, Socrates describes a group of people who have lived chained to the wall of a cave all their lives, facing a blank wall. The people watch shadows projected on the wall from objects passing in front of a fire behind them and give names to these shadows. The shadows are the prisoners’ reality, but are not accurate representations of the real world. The shadows represent the fragment of reality that we can normally perceive through our senses, while the objects under the sun represent the true forms of objects that we can only perceive through reason.
Socrates explains how the philosopher is like a prisoner who is freed from the cave and comes to understand that the shadows on the wall are actually not reality at all. A philosopher aims to understand and perceive the higher levels of reality. Three higher levels exist: the natural sciences; mathematics, geometry, and deductive logic; and the theory of forms. However, the other inmates of the cave do not even desire to leave their prison, for they know no better life.
I think it is fairly obvious 3D reality is a form of Maya. That has been clear for many years now. The dilemma is how to leave the false reality and join with the real world and I would say it’s evident that the consciousness shift is in full swing. The Ego mind or whatever term you may care to use is desperate and holding on by its fingers. Much of it is difficult to deal with though. Shockwave after shockwave after shockwave.
Off Merovee, there has been all sorts being coming at me which I haven’t written about mainly because I don’t want to add any more confusion to an already confused state. And incredibly personal as well. Also the sheer scale of it is difficult for the mind and heart to process. Memory and ‘Remembering’ has been a large part of it. Memory is being continually pinged. I’m not sure what exactly we are trying to remember but I suppose if the memory was already there there would be no need to ping the memory.
And I realise I keep banging on about it but a reunion of the masculine and feminine within the larger Self which is causing mayhem. And Senses Working Overtime and frequency. It’s not only the First Picture of You. Just hearing a voice can turn your heart to mush as well as other senses.
On the walls of the world. Meow posibly. Annoying I’m sure for some. Maybe cats do rule the world though !
Feline It ?
