A visual contemplation on the nature of “Truth”

Freemasonry and Truth
I saw the image to the left on an internet forum – and thought it was fantastic. Often debates are formed and held all too strongly around the shadows on the wall rather than trying to get to the “TRUTH”. Truth is one of the three great principles Freemasonry is founded on.  As shown above, the “truth” can sometimes be hard to see.

Many might recognise the image as a succinct reference to Plato’s “Allegory of the Cave” appearing in his book Republic. Written around 380 BC, its ideas are still lively discussed and the image to the left gives you the central message in the Cave Allegory. In the book, truth has even more levels than those shown in the image on this pa.
