What if you could play philosophical games on your old 8-bit Nintendo?
Chances are you have pondered, “weak and weary,” over the classical philosophical problem of what can we properly consider to be, strictly speaking, “real.” The bad news is that such question has as many answers as philosophers have ever set foot on Earth. The good news, though, is that you are in good company, since Plato himself embarked on the very same quest. But if you do not happen to have time to read Plato’s Republic right now, take three minutes to enjoy this Nintendo-like, 8-bit clip on the famous Allegory of the Cave as an appetizer for your later readings.
