What Is Kolach Tree Cave?

Satisfactory Essays
Olympic National Park has nearly 3,000,000 visitors every year. One of the most popular sites to visit is Kolach Tree Cave, which is a large tree that stretches across a miniature canyon and forms a cave. This is one of the changes the park as experienced over time. The land of the park has changed on many other occasions due to landslides, erosion, and human interaction. But probably, the most prominent change is glaciers. The park is full of them and they are constantly moving, changing the land behind them. Some of the glaciers include Blue Glacier, Lillian Glacier, and Anderson Glacier. The constantly moving glaciers and other changes in the scenery make the park different every time you go.

    The Allegory of the Cave

    • 481 Words

    In “The Allegory of the Cave”, I believe truth is being portrayed as something we as humans see, maybe only once, without it even being the whole truth. Even then we neglect to see “other truths.” According to Socrates, and I quote, “From the beginning people like this have never managed, whether on their own or with the help by others, to see anything besides the shadows that are [continually] projected on the wall opposite them by the glow of fire.” Socrates believes humans will automatically assume something to be truthful, and with no actual evidence that we won’t even bother to look at the sight of whatever it may actually be. At then end, if someone would try to tell us otherwise, we will neglect the actual truth and still believe we know what the truth really is. Even if the actual truth was shown to us, and we were seeing it with the naked eye, it will not be enough to convince us otherwise of our own perception. However, I believe Socrates is saying that as humans, we need to be forced to look at the “real truth” and that it will take time to assimilate to once we’re forcibly presented with it. However afterwards, we will see the light; we will see the real truths behind what we previously believed to be false. After the truth has been revealed to us, we will assimilate to it permanently. Socrates states, and I quote, “But I think that finally he would be in the condition to look at the sun itself, not just at its reflection whether in water or wherever else it might appear, but at the sun itself, as it is….” However, knowing too much of the truth can lead to conflicts, and that is probably why so many things are hidden from us. Maybe our problem is not that we don’t want to see the truth, but that we are scared of what the outcome may be if we do know the real truths.…

    Cave Allegory

    In his book, Republic, Plato tries to explain justice through different dialogues between Socrates and other people. He explains how to live a just life, what a just society should be, and how just leadership should be taken. One of the arguments he uses to explain justice involves four stages of philosophical education. He describes them through dialogue between Socrates and Glaucon at a dinner party. Socrates uses what is called the allegory of the cave to explain the importance of education and just leadership in society. The four stages he uses line up with a previous conversation about the four conditions of the soul. They correspond with four subsections: the highest of which is understanding, next is thought, then belief, and the last is imaging. Plato’s allegory illustrates the imaging stage first.…

    The Forest Hill Formation is a geological area that mainly stretches from west-central to southeastern Mississippi, but thins right at the border of and barely touches Clarke County, Alabama (Echols, et al., 1893). Geologist Ephraim Nobel Lowe originally proposed the name Madison Sands for this formation, due to the fact that he had studied it in Madison County, Mississippi. The name was later changed to Forest Hill by Charles Wythe Cooke. The Forest Hill Formation overlies the Red Bluff Formation in eastern Mississippi and disconformably overlies the Yazoo Formation in western and central Mississippi (MacNeil, et al., 1984). In southeastern Mississippi and southwestern Alabama this formation overlies the Red Bluff Clay and the…

    The Allegory means a lot to people who are very mystical and like to think of different things about life. The allegory is a story about these prisoners whom since they've been children have been locked away deep inside a cave with chains all over their bodies including their heads making them be immobilized and their heads facing one certain wall. To the backs of these prisoners there is a fire and between the prisoners and the fire stands a way in which men carry various things such as plants and animals. Hence making the prisoners see weird shapes that fascinate them. When these men spoke their voices cast an echo and this echo to the prisoners, seems to be coming from the shadows. This is what there lives revolve around, a mystical game of being amazed of the unknown. Which shows that even in the 21st century man is still amazed by what they don't understand and know.…

    What I received from reading “The Allegory of the Cave” was you can not receive wisdom without putting your soul into it. Kind of like going from the darkness to the light they had to get accustomed to what they were seeing. They had to experience it to understand it. While in the cave they saw shadows of objects however they never got to see the 3-D object or its usage to understand what it was. Like wisdom, you can tell someone your advice but if you have not gone through that particular moment yourself then it just becomes your opinion. They understood what things were but they never understood anything more than what they saw.…

    Plato’s “The allegory of the Cave” addresses so many different areas of philosophy including, epistemology, metaphysics, asceticism, ethics, etc. In his allegory it is important to seek what Plato is trying to accomplish through locating his rhetorical devices, his tone, his position and arguments, in order to develop meaning to his allegory. Plato’s philosophies include education, interaction, individuality, and human nature to make his statement of what the correct path to “enlightenment” should be, being expressed through symbolism, imagery, themes, and metaphors to convey his message. Plato’s allegory however is actually represents an extended metaphor that is to contrast the way in which we perceive and believe in what is reality. “The allegory of the Cave” plays multiple roles, all depending how we interpret it, either being used as a metaphor for the process of intellectual understandings on the quest for sense and knowledge, or a way to portray parts of his political philosophy, involving the correct the path to “the good” and ‘reality’. Plato’s allegory of the cave is a parable to understand the process of how a person becomes enlightened; including the positives and negatives influences it can have on a person in their natural environment, in other words our responses and reaction to being freed from their chains and being forced to experience life outside the cave.…

    In Plato 's "The Allegory of the Cave," Socrates tells an allegory of the hardship of understanding reality. Using metaphors Socrates compares a prisoner in an underground cave who is exploring a new strange world he never knew of to people who are trying to find a position of knowledge in reality. Through it, Plato attempts to map a man 's journey through education and describes what is needed to achieve a perfect society. According to Socrates, most people tend to rely on their senses excessively and accept the world as it is appears to them in their vision as truth. So that we can liberate our souls from this mental prison, Socrates suggests that we should go through a stage that prepares ourselves for the real world and at the same time preventing us from heading to the wrong direction in seeking the truth. According to Socrates the only way to achieve this would be through education.…
