The Matrix Described Over 2000 Years Ago by Plato [video]

This is an unusual video production-wise, but it eloquently explains how we were deceived and came to be in this hypnotic state, ignorant of our true reality, and trusting that all is as it is meant to be. You may experience a few “a-hahs”.

It elucidates how we trusting humans are so certain that what we experience with our five senses is real; and why we doubt—even feel threatened by—those who challenge our beliefs about what IS.

Very thought-provoking, and very well done.  I think you’ll want to share this one. 

It may be one of those shares that wakes up a few people.  ~ BP

Narrated by Orson Welles

Plato described the problem of the barriers to humanity’s access to knowledge over 2,000 years ago.

You’d think that being that Plato is considered one of the founding thinkers of Western thought that this selection from his writing would be taught in every school.

It’s not.

Instead, history books refer to it and make it sound so complicated that only a PhD in philosophy can figure it out.

In fact, this is not the case.

This is the actual text straight from Plato (translated into English) and read by Orson Welles.

Nothing complicated about it—but very illuminating—which is why it’s not taught in school.
