This storyboard does not have a description.
Glaucon, think of people who have been in a cave all their life. They are chained up and they can only look forward.
There is light that shows images, like a puppet show. The prisoners are so used to it since they've been there for their whole life that they made up words for the shadow.
So they made up their own words for a tree as an example.
It is a puff!
Now, one person is allowed to leave to see what the real world is like. But wouldn't her eyes hurt once she sees the light.
Yes, because she is so used to the dark from the cave.
The sun makes everything visible, unlike the darkness in the cave. This is AWESOME!!
My eyes burn! Wait, what is this? Is that a tree! And, is that a flower!
