My Favorite Thing We Read This Year Was...

Plato, particularly his Allegory of a Cave. Plato's idea of true forms was indeed interesting, and some aspects of it seemed familiar to some ideas that I myself, not to sound self-glorifying or arrogant, have come across in my thoughts. Nevertheless, my exposure to his idea reignited some of my own and I began to wonder whether the world we live in is what is actually there. Do I actually exist, or am I unaware of some greater degree of existence due to my mortality. Long story short, I'm a real sucker for metaphysics, so reading Plato was definitely a treat.
