Imagine prisoners that have spent their entire lives chained deep inside a cave. They have been chain so that they cannot see behind themselves, and they are forced to stare endlessly at the cave wall in front of them. Behind them a fire is burning, and between the prisoners and the fire is a raised walkway. Each day people pass over the walkway, herding animals and taking their wares to market. Their shapes create an intricate shadow play on the wall in front of the prisoners. This is the only world that the prisoners have ever knows. The shadows and the echoes of unseen objects.
