Plato realizes that the general run of humankind can think, and speak, etc., without (so far as they acknowledge) any awareness of his realm of Forms. The allegory of the cave is supposed to explain this. In the allegory, Plato likens people untutored in the Theory of Forms to prisoners chained in a cave, unable to turn their heads. All they can see is the wall of the cave. Behind them burns a fire. Between the fire and the prisoners there is a parapet, along which puppeteers can walk.

This is the most common type of lucid dream induction technique. In fact, many first timers achieve their first lucid dream through this technique. When a DILD (Dream Induced Lucid Dream) occurs, you become lucid within the dream. This can often happen when the dream is so outrageous or ridiculous that no other rational explanation can be used to explain it other than it being a dream.
The dreamer thinks to themselves "This is crazy! Now you may be thinking that this technique seems more like a chance of luck over whether you have a dream about something that is too outrageous to wake you into a state of lucidity. However, this technique can be mastered through the use of reality checks rather than outrageous or odd situations in your dreams. To perform the DILD technique, do the following: Step 1: Early in the morning, find an ink pen.
Step 2: Take the pen and draw single tiny dots somewhere on your hands. Too true. Platos "The Allegory of the Cave": A Summary. "In fact, you get pretty good at understanding how the patterns in the show work, and everyone else chained up is like, 'Holy shit bro, how did you know that that tree was going to fall on that guy?'
And you're like, 'It's because I fucking pay attention and I'm smart as shit.' You're the smartest of the chained, and they all revere you. " Glaucon: "But Socrates, a tree didn't really hit a guy. It's all shadows. " Socrates: "No shit, Glaucon, but you don't know that. "So eventually, someone comes and unchains you and drags you out of the cave. "Slowly, as your eyes got better, you'd see more and more shit. "Finally you'd want to go down and tell everyone about everything you've discovered. "Philosophy, same thing.
