THE DECEPTION OF MAN
We are prisoners of our limitations, we limit to interpret the elements deriving wrong conclusions. We die with the presumption to know the reality and the truth of things. During the course of our lives we are faced with a different reality from the one we know, we consider the last one false, refuse it and we return to our everyday life. An example is the case of Plato with "The Allegory of the Cave". When prisoners have the opportunity to be freed and have the possibility to know the essence of a new reality, they prefer to kill their partner for remain in their vision of life. Serepta Mason wants us to reflect about this, it is right to give up the knowledge for fear to change its own of reality? We have in our life the important task to expanding the subjective view, for see the real essence and beauty of all that is around us, abandoning the deceptive shadows of the prisoners and the misleading voices of the city.
My life’s blossom might have bloomed on all sides
save for a bitter wind which stunted my petals
on the side of me which you in the village could see.
From the dust I lift a voice of protest:
my flowering side you never saw!
Ye living ones, ye are fools indeed
who do not know the ways of the wind
and the unseen forces
that govern the processes of life.
