In Plato’s Republic, Socrates painted a word picture about a cave imprisoning a group of homo sapiens, this reality-detached place allows them to see nothing but a blank wall (the Allegory of the Cave). These people observe on-wall shadows by objects passing in front of a fire behind them, and they give assuming names to these shadows. The prisoners' reality is thus the shadows, but they do not represent exactly the real world they live in. Socrates compares a philosopher to a prisoner who is set free from a cave and realizes that the shadows on the wall are not reality at all: a philosopher aims to be aware of and comprehend higher levels of reality. DeFi users are akin to philosophers engaging with a seemingly philosophically ideal yet manipulated financial system. We are, in a sense, philosophers outside the financial cave, on the path to realize how a possible version of future financial system based on blockchain technology could get the masses out of a tight spot. And on account of this, none of us will go back to our delusional cave.
