Q:  Which one is the odd one out?  1. The Doors Of Perception. 2. Slavoj Zizek. 3. The X-Factor or 4. The Matrix  

A:  Number 3.  The others actually understand their direct lineage back to Plato’s Caves allegory in The Republic.

In the animation above Plato’s Caves text is narrated by Orson Welles.  In our hesitant new quantum era of scientific uncertainty Plato’s text has become even more relevant and more visionary.  The animation is pretty good too.
