The Reveal


The region revealed through sight, the ordinary objects we see around us, to the prison home, and the light of the fire

in it to the power of the Sun. And in applying the going up and the seeing of what's above to the soul's journey to the intelligible place, you not mistake my expectation, since you desire to hear it. At all events, this is the way the phenomena look to me: in the region of the knowable the last thing to be seen, and that with considerable effort, is the idea, but once seen, it must be

concluded that this is indeed the cause for all things of all that is right and beautiful, in the visible realm it gives

birth to light and its sovereign, in the intelligible realm, itself sovereign, it provided truth and intelligence,

and that the man who is going to act prudently in private or in public must see you it.
