How willing are we to accept new perspectives and interpretations? War as a cave phenomenon?

How willing are we to accept new perspectives and interpretations? War as a cave phenomenon?

Whether or not this short video is 100% in accordance with the original, it offers insights into perceptional psychology, the question of what is reality and what does it look like to us – and how do we receive new information.

It’s also about science, philosophy, socially acceptable knowledge – and how to punish the messenger. And it’s a comment on truth and ignorance.

We posted this educational video 2 days after it had been uploaded by TED; by then it had already been seen by 960.000 people, shared by 17.000 and reacted to by 27.000 people! People are craving for relevant knowledge helping them live their lives better – and think better.

There is a formidable educational potential in the modern media – and… you can still read about The Cave and The Republic.

When it comes to war and other violence, it seems we are still living in the cave, doesn’t it?
