Plato taught that consciousness is partly blanked out and the blank, or dark side, of consciousness is this world we all live in, that is, the objective world the scientist studies. This means that the basis of the whole universe, as experienced by the senses, is the illusory cave world that Plato wrote about. The higher world is forever blanked out, just like the dark matter in the universe is blanked out. If we really are in the dark, or shielded off from the real world, well this implies a higher form of knowing, doesn't it? If there is a higher form of knowing then this means that we all are sleeping. It is our job to become lucid.
Alas Plato won't offer any hints and tips as to how we can get out of here.
