Mr F, Chair Pioneer

Plato's theory of forms argues that ideas are real, and that the reality of ideas is separate from the reality of things.

Plato says that the idea of a thing is that perfect form of the thing that we hold in our minds as being the one true version of that thing.

This idea is itself a real thing, mirrored endlessly in the imperfect forms of things that surround us.

But what if Plato's theory is incomplete?

What if we can apply our idea of one thing to the reality of another, and in so doing, move that one thing closer to the idea of the other?
