BYWALTER LIPPMANNTOFAYE LIPPMANNWading River,Long Island.1921. _"Behold! human beings living in a sort of underground den,which has a mouth open towards the light and reaching all acrossthe den; they have been here from their childhood, and have theirlegs and necks chained so that they cannot move, and can onlysee before them; for the chains are arranged in such a manner asto prevent them from turning round their heads. At a distanceabove and behind them the light of a fire is blazing, and betweenthe fire and the prisoners there is a raised way; and you willsee, if you look, a low wall built along the way, like the screenwhich marionette players have before them, over which they showthe puppets.I see, he said.And do you see, I said, men passing along the wall carryingvessels, which appear over the wall; also figures of men andanimals, made of wood and stone and various materials; and someof the prisoners, as you would expect, are talking, and some ofthem are silent?This is a strange image, he said, and they are strange prisoners.Like ourselves, I replied; and they see only their own shadows,or the shadows of one another, which the fire throws on theopposite wall of the cave?True, he said: how could they see anything but the shadows ifthey were never allowed to move their heads?And of the objects which are being carried in like manner theywould see only the shadows?Yes, he said.And if they were able to talk with one another, would they notsuppose that they were naming what was actually before them?"_ --The Republic of Plato, Book Seven.
