It is in its garbage disposal system where Luke and his friends are almost killed. They are ultimately saved by C3PO just in the nick of time.

The temptation of the dark side is so strong that Luke gives in to it, his own passion, and soon realizes that it is his own face behind Vader’s mask.
We are made to believe certain things and when someone reveals a different truth to us we are quick to get defensive and not believe the other person until an actual truth is shown. Just as Plato describes dragging the people into the sunlight from the cave. Just as the light is hard to adjust to so is the reality of the world. So many people stay in the dark and “chained to a wall” their whole lives because it’s all they know. They do not realize there are puppeteers in the background pulling the strings and even if they question they disregard their
To begin, the lack of financial stability in the Walls family has always been problematic, however as the mother of her children, Rose Mary never contributed much to the family income due to her stubbornness and free-spirited nature. A prime example of Rose Mary not providing for her family is a constant lack of food in the house. The children’s hunger is apparent when Jeannette says, “We did eat less. Once we lost our credit at the commissary, we quickly ran out of food. Sometimes Dad’s odd jobs would come through, or he’d win some money gambling, and we’d eat for a few days.
Usually, they would pick one of the younger, less experienced girls, but Sera had known that eventually they would figure out that she hadn’t received one single proposal yet. Not even a merchant looking for a title had bothered to ask for her hand. In the Golden Valleys, a collection of many kingdoms, fairy tales became reality, which could only mean that her Prince Charming was waiting somewhere. For all Sera knew, he was extremely shy or had fallen terribly ill. When her cousin who had hosted the soiree had announced her engagement, all eyes had been on Sera, whose envy had shown in her eyes.
Another point made in book VII, was that by educating yourself you become less ignorant to what is out there in the world. Book VII ("Allegory of the cave"), describes a scene carry out in a dark cave. In this scene, a group of human beings have been living in a cave since birth; they have never seen the light of day. These people have only focused on what is in front of them but never what is beyond what they can see, "chained, can't turn their heads." Behind them is a fire and behind the fire is a wall.

Shaland notes, “Laura was given only a momentary glimpse of normal existence before she drifted back into her dark prison – to the no-time of her glass animals” (123). The glass collection does not just pertain to Laura as Durham states, “This symbol is relevant to the other characters also, for their ability to exist at all in the world rests on illusions as easily destroyed as the unicorn” (5). Tom has had enough of Amanda and wants to leave but she asks him “Jeopardize the security of us all?” (Williams 1618). Even though Tom leaves the Wingfield house, he ends up missing his family, especially Laura, after seeing a piece of glass one night. He cannot escape his guilt and love for his
To find the root of this uncertainty, we can look to Sontag’s reflection of Plato’s “the allegory of the cave.” In summary, “The allegory of the cave” is about prisoners chained inside of a cave, with no idea of what the outside is like, being given names for the shadows of objects they’ve seen. When the prisoners are freed from their chains, the world they find is not as easily understood, and those years of isolation result in an incomprehensible reality, something analogous to experiencing the relationship between photographs and the reality which they attempt to portray.. In actuality, there is no direct answer as to whether or not there are different types of knowledge or degrees of it. In regards to the the degrees of knowledge, elements could be displayed as“indisputable evidence that the trip was made, that the program was carried out, that fun we had” (Sontag, 9). This means the degrees of knowledge from a photograph are the viewers recollecting the various senses of the photographer; perhaps putting themselves in his shoes and comprehending through a progression of photographic images the experiences of
