Plato imagined a world of ideal forms, that God was in the realm of our being.  To Plato, knowledge was innate and just had to be drawn out to a higher way of thinking.  Beings were eternal or fixed but the act of becoming was the state of nature changing.   He had a vision of a transcendent being that could lead us to goodness and perfect forms.  Plato's allegory of the cave will be discussed as well where people could only see shadows cast on the wall & had to go to the source of the sun for enlightenment.
