platos cave is a cave with sevoral people chained to chairs, these people have only ever seen shadows on a wall, so to them the shadows are reality, thae have never seen the real world, plato (the philosipher who came up with the idea) is trying to say the reality we experence is the only reality we have experenced so how do we know that there isant anything beyond our reality, we are like the prizoners chained to the chairs
