Plato’ s Cave
 
 
"... True, he said; how could they see anything but the shadows if they were never allowed to move their heads? And of the objects which are being carried in like manner they would only see the shadows? ..."
The prose "The Allegory of the Cave" written by Plato about is interpreted here in that in life there are no truths, but at most truth is a shadow, or reflection, on the wall of our conscious. For when we cannot see the actual object, we see its shadow.
 
This site holds a collection of "shadows", in the form of ideas, tools, art and other content. I chose to put them all in one place because it is difficult to separate the art from the technology, the creative from the mundane business. So, some of these tools have a relationship with one another, in my eyes, some may not.
 
So, Plato's Cave is a place were I, and other people, can "connect" things not letting people hold our heads to only look at the shadows of opportunity. It is a place that I find some freedom. It is a place I wish to share with whomever would like to partake.
 
 
By the way, plato is a red stuffed tree frog located on one of my computers. My daughter likes to steel it every so often and hide it.
