How ironic, now I literally am stuck in a cave! And this guy is somehow enjoying some peace of mind!

Oh my goodness! It's, you, Descrates! Why are you in here? I was speaking at a school assembly when I accidentally insulted their teachers for furthering my, "idols of the den". Those poor students. When they threatened to kick me out, I physically defended myself. Unfortunately I let my affections get in the way of reason.
urgh...what? Oh, Bacon. Yes, greetings, friend.
Yes, it's always unfortunate when your opponent "cannot handle" your preferred method of discourse. I was discussing with the local Father about how an angel told me that mathematics was the explanation to the natural world and he had some unpleasant fellows take me here.
How intriguing! Watch out, you're falling prey to some idols of the marketplace. Be careful in picking up slang terms, Des. Anyways, yes, it seems that our reason, though superior, did not beat out their affection or the senses this time, eh?
Precisely. But like you said, because our reason is superior, we must find a way of escape.
True. Let's use our reason to generate an emotional response in the guards.
