Have you EVER read; "The Allegory of the Cave"? This brief story has a powerful meaning. Today's discussion about a famous mentor in history, will be about Plato. Who was he and what did he teach. More importantly, how his wisdom (that is older than 2,000 years), still has a vital lesson for us in this day and age.
One of the most profound stories that Plato wrote was called, "The Allegory of the Cave". An abbreviated form of this story is as follows:
"Suppose there is a cave, and inside the cave there are some men chained up to a wall, so that they can only see the back wall of the cave and nothing else. These men can't see anything outside of the cave, or even see each other clearly, but they can see shadows of what is going on outside the cave. Wouldn't these prisoners come to think that the shadows were real, and that was what things really looked like?
Suppose now that one of the men escaped, and got out of the cave, and saw what real people looked like, and real trees and grass. If he went back to the cave and told the other men what he had seen, would they believe him, or would they think he was crazy?"
Plato says that we are like those men sitting in the cave; "We think we understand the real world, but because we are trapped in our bodies we can see only the shadows on the wall".
Linda Forsythe and Leyla Hur will be having a lively discussion about this story and how much the spirit of the story is alive in us today. How much do you believe is reality because of what you've perceived or been taught?
Many answers to questions may be answered within yourself after today's show.
Bonnie Kaye welcomes author Michelle Manning who authored the book Siding With Plato. She was raised in Valencia, California and is a graduate of Arizona State University where she majored in journalism. She worked in the fields of public relations, marketing, social media, and finally to entertainment news.
Siding With Plato is a romantic laugh-out-loud chick lit novel about being young, beautiful, and a seriously hot mess! Brooke Aarons can't get to college fast enough. Leaving behind her small town life, she intends to transform herself into a brilliant psychologist at the University of Texas, with no distractions to slow her down. But when she finds herself on a double date with the school's notorious playboy - and worse, enjoying it - Brooke has to wonder if she's the one who needs her head examined. James Cartwright's overly glorified jock status, endless bucks, and long line of willing girls should make him a non-starter for Brooke, but as she learns, the psychology behind a bad crush is a whole lot messier of a subject. Maybe Plato was right. Maybe love is a serious mental disease . . . If so there better be a cure before Brooke gets herself in too deep.

ALL IS VIBRATION
No less than Albert Einstein said that everything in life is vibration, and according to the latest theories in quantum physics, he was right! In unseen subtle realms there are energetic blueprints of everything in the physical reality of this dimension. Due to a specific frequency of vibration, a corresponding specific physical structure will result both is simple structures to complex human beings.
These theories and more will be discussed by Judy Sellins and Dave Turco of the Unknown Zone. From disease to healing, from creation to enlightenment and everything in between is vibration. Join us to see what shaped da Vinci, Plato and Pythoras' brilliant ideas.
This episode of "Philosophers Vortex" continues a discussion that was implicit in Wilhelm Reich's philosophy of law as presented in the last two sessions. What socio-political structures and laws provide the best environment for the full flowering of human spiritual health? There has been dispute among philosophers, psychologists, and theologians on this vital core issue at least since Plato's "Republic."
What is clear from both history and contemporary events is that we live in a pathogenic society and that healthy societies cannot be found anywhere in the present world.
These three philosophers are not ordinarily considered as libertarian. In fact, they are.
What can they offer us today?
See the movie: "The Fountainhead."
In this episode, Emi interviews the awesome Author, Frank Joseph, on his new Essay within the book, "Lost Secrets of The Gods", entitled, "Plato's Atlantis: Fact of Fiction?" Lost Secrets of the Gods delves into this and many more ancient mysteries and in articles by some of the world’s most intrepid and knowledgeable researchers. The old paradigms of history are being radically transformed as we discover more evidence of little-known cultures and what they achieved. There is much more to history than what has officially been recorded.
In Frank's essay, he discusses the history behind Atlantis, the myths, facts and impact this legendary location has had on the public consciousness, as well as how the mysteries and morals surrounding the enigma of the culture can impact us today.
"There were giants in the earth in those days" a seemingly odd declarative statement in Genesis 6:4 dismissed as myth in the modern era may actually been an historical truth.
Giants of one form or another figure in legends around the world and Judy Sellins and Dave Turco will bring to light what was accepted by Plato, Homer, Lincoln and Victorian era scholars but rejected by modern scientists. But why the silence and worse, rejection of what was printed in the New York Times as recently as 1916, that a race of giants once existed on Earth? From titans to cyclops and Goliath to Moshup and from Native American earthen mounds to the ringed city of Atlantis overwheming evidence from around the world points to a race of giant humans that once thrived on Earth.
