Blog 1.7 - The Matrix of the Cave

The Matrix

    Think about Plato's Cave:

Thinking archetypally, and you need to do two things: 

  1. Make a bullet-point outline of the FIVE different symbols from the Cave.  Next to your list, make their connection to The Matrix. (Example: “Shadows = ______________”) 
  2. Write an OCI Response showing how the Cave and The Matrix relate to one another, and draw connections to something outside of the both stories (a real life example with cause and effect).

Sample Writing

Plato talks about ________ in the cave, which The Matrix shows when ____________.  This is like _____________; when ____________ happened, people __________________

In the paragraph, you should have at least three pieces of evidence from the story, and you should use the following Rhetorical Devices (Classification, Definition, Cause and Effect, and Comparison-Contrast).
