Quote fromI'll call you stupid too, you're stupid. And no, you didn't just dumb it down, you totally enilated it and changed the originals alligories meaning by trying to come to the same conclusion with your example as the cave allegories.
I didn't say stupid, I said unintelligent. Different meanings. I think you may have read it, but took the most literal conclusion and stuck with it. There was no cave. There were no people chained in it. It is a story. But if there were people in a cave forced to just look at the wall shadows, they would each have a different perception on reality. You can't get past the part that "they aren't in the real world" or "everyone else knows that's not reality." That doesn't matter. But hey, you can't even form proper arguments or rebuttals so obviously you can't understand what I'm trying to tell you, so I'll stop trying to teach you now.
