Statues. and. Shadows. IT STANDS IN METALLIC SILENCE, IMPASSIVE TO
NINETY years of the commercial and residential growth that surrounds it. The
statue, like the person it honors, remains difficult, almost hazardous to approach,
its access constrained by two major District of Columbia arteries. Much like the
man, the memorial rests on an island awash in a sea of confusion-aloof and
distant from most other prominent Civil War statuary. Curiously, it adorns no
rotary circle, graces ...

things that nonphilosophers take to be really real, ... The unfortunate prisoners
can see nothing but these shadows, and hear nothing but the echoing noises

Lifesize figures, all in armor and all with weapons. I had the impression that any
second now the statues would come to life and throw themselves at each other.
The columns running through the center of the hall gave out a silvery light, but
there were thick shadows along the walls, and that gave most of the shadows an
ominous look. ... And do I even have to mention that the statues were not identical
, in fact, they were all completely different? Every elf had his own face and
bearing, his ...

... for fear of abridging the raptures expressed by others, or of appearing behind-
hand in point of taste by showing impatience, or of protracting a ceremony
already too long, by desiring to stay. The torches reached about the height of the
larger statues, casting a level light glaring without shadows : the effect was much
better on the low busts ; but I thought upon the whole the sky-light and the day-
time preferable. I do not know how other people feel on such occasions, but I
must have my ...

'His shadow?' Felix was so startled he dropped his spoon, crushing one of his
mashed-potato penguins. 'Wait, what?' 'I got the idea from Horus,' I said. 'He told
me statues were called shadows in ancient times.' 'But that was just, like,
symbolic,' Alyssa said. 'Wasn't it?' Bast set down her empty Fancy Feast can. She
still looked nervous about the whole topic of shadows, but when I'd explained to
her that it was either this or Sadie and me dying she'd agreed to support us. '

Even if they wanted to leave the screen and move towards the fire and then
hopefully through the hole into the sun, they cannot afford, apart from not being
allowed to in the cave scenario itself, to leave their role. The economics of the
everyday world keep them firmly near the screen being intermedium for the fire to
cast its shadows. Others, but probably not all that many of them, lack the gift and
presence to make the effort of moving away towards fire and sun. u Behavioural

On the rock was a statue, a female figure rising out of the waves reaching for the
sky. She looked like glass, water somehow made solid, but not. A gold, glittery
sheen sparkled in the glass and from her hands a shower of radiant gold light
spilled upward and disappeared into a round disk in the ceiling that also glowed.
As we drew closer, I saw that the chasm went all the way around the statue. A
small bridge connected the main floor with the statue; the chasm was too wide to
jump.

In Plato's 'Allegory of the Cave' the philosopher prisoner who is freed from the
cave comes to understand that the shadows on the wall are not constitutive of
reality at all, as he comes to perceive the true form of reality, by venturing toward
the opening, seeing light, rather than the mere shadows seen by the prisoners in

dogs and tables and mountains, and books and trees and everything else in the
world.
