The Light of Cavemen


“Any one who has common sense will remember that the bewilderments of the eyes are of two kinds, and arise from two causes, either from coming out of the light or from going into the light”


― Plato, The Allegory of the Cave[1]


Our World appears to be full of flamboyance clothes and extravagance food.  All the things what we see and embrace in this world, are truly appear to be real, not virtual? It is just a world of temporary existence.


I have no desire to swap my identity with anyone else, whoever in hurry or at leisurely.  I only want to understand the direction of life, and to spend time preciously.  Nothing is more significant, more meaningful or more touching in compare to living and to see the sun shining.  Grant yourself time and space to feel the essence of life every day, this is an ideological realm of practice a philosophy of life.


In the Allegory of the Cave, Plato metaphor describes how the cavemen saw the shadow cast by the fire and think they have seen the truth.  Instead, the cavemen thought that those who lead them to find the light are using light to tend them into blindness.
