But how well did you really know him? He was supposed to continue his tale in another volume - which he never did. And many of his contemporaries didn't take it seriously. They looked at it as a metaphor for what a utopian society might have been. Something to strive for. Which is OK. It hasn't been until modern times that people have gotten real interested in where it might have been and when. And a lot of folks have taken his tale and twisted it around - looking for Atlantis all over the world.

plato is so highly regarded in the world of the esoteric....probably for a good reason...no i didnt know the guy but there is obviously a reason why so many respected him
and the cool thing about Plato is his life is actually documented...not like a certain Aramaic woodworker ...who shall remain nameless
out..cya
