This blog is on escaping from the Platonic cave. But you can not always see it. It is about art, philosophy, politics and searching for the meaning of life. The Truth is hidden somewhere between these areas.
But what if man had eyes to see the true beauty – the divine beauty, I mean, pure and dear and unalloyed, not clogged with the pollutions of mortality and all the colours and vanities of human life-thither looking, and holding converse with the true beauty simple and divine? Remember how in that communion only, beholding beauty with the eye of the mind, he will be enabled to bring forth, not images of beauty, but realities (for he has hold not of an image but of a reality), and bringing forth and nourishing true virtue to become the friend of God and be immortal, if mortal man may. Would that be an ignoble life? – Diotima
We do not like any political correctness, safe spaces or falsehood on this blog.

And for the griefless time of thoughtlessness,
For those who never fancy to deceive,
And take each no for no and yes for yes…
