    Everyone, according to Plato, has perfect knowledge, and learning is simply having that knowledge "recalled".
    Well teaching back then was basically helping a student reach the conclusions on their own so he's not wrong, in a manner of speaking. It wasn't like the indoctrination that ruins so many young minds these days.
    In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

    Or at least it seems that way from what I've read.

    j/k. I recently bought some deodorant; I mean "real" stuff with aluminum-shit in it. I've tried every natural type under the sun and still stink so decided just to take my chances with alzheimer's.

    I *want* to be attracted to Dr. Frank-n-Furter, but I just can't get past the delusional diva aspect. Eddie Izzard, OTOH is pretty awesome and I probably wouldn't kick him out of bed (or off the couch, kitchen floor, whatever).

    Oh, Dr. Frank (the char) is way over the top to be sure... but to me it's in a wink and nudge fashion instead of full on "real diva", which I wouldn't like.

    Eddie Izzard is just too awesome for words... in ladies clothing or in his male gendered get ups... funny, intelligent, seems to be really honest about who he is, and HAWT!

    Well, while we're at it I might as well pull out the James Franco to drool over again...
    Yep, I never really thought he was HOT until I saw THIS pic... *sigh*

    Is it truth that there is a God even though I cannot prove it to you?

    Truth is only what I can prove to be true.

    It may be true that I dreamed of Jeannie last night, but there is no way I could prove that to you. So in terms of philosophy, the statement, "I dreamed of Jeannie" is neither true, nor false, but simply a statement.
    Wtf does this have to do with allegory of the cave?

    You missed the point of referencing the allegory in this thread
