Have you ever made dogs, deers and fishes out of hand shadows on the wall. Those shadows in stark contrast to the wall begin the story. Theses shadows begin with a few deer traveling through the jungle, and fish swimming in the water, and dogs barking on the street, people in masks and butterflies.

The camera zooms out to reveal five people sitting on chairs watching these shadows on the wall. four men and for your sake a woman.
camera pans and tracks over their faces.
their hands are bound behind their back they are so engrossed in watching the scenes unfold that they are ignorant of who or what is making these shadows. they talk to each other sometimes,--------- though one guy is not getting involved and nobody pays attention to him either. this guy is swiftly slicing the rope binding him with a knife.

He frees himself and surveys the scene. Nobody responds.
Camera pans and locates the projected source of light.
the man is in a trance he walks towards the source the light engulfes him.
White light fades in to a horizon.--- a yonder. ---A yonder becons him. He walks towards the yonder.
The revelation lies beyond the yonder. the man walks....

Then he stops to think and turns back.
cut to a door in a stone building on the landscape.
man walks into the frame opens the door and walks in.
cut to the room
the screen is blank the people are still tied and engrossed.
the man unties the people one by one.
they awaken to a new freedom ------- a wild unwarantted freedom.
it dosent take them a long while to succum to their nature
one man points a finger at the protagionist .. he is accused, beaten and killed with the dagger he used to cut the ropes.

p.s.... remember platos cave? this guy who was killed in plato's perception was socrates.
because he showed people the truth or freed them so to say but like christ he has crucified in his own right.
