Plato’s Cave

People ask, what for? And so I ask too, and sometimes confuse my own answers with the answers others expect.

Maybe education is just like Plato’s Cave too. At one point you realize there’s another world beyond what you’ve gotten used to, beyond what others see and are content with. But it’s just not enough for you to settle with just the shadows. It gets difficult of course as you adjust your eyes to the light. And of course when you tell others of this world you’ve discovered, for what to you is a prized discovery is to others something inconceivable, almost short of illusory; what to you is a worthwhile endeavor is to others a futile attempt to arrive at an elusive end (aka a waste of time).
