“This piece expresses the idea that this world, which appears as "reality" to our eyes, is in fact only virtual, a false image, and that in the boundary that exists between these two worlds is indeed mystery and beauty. The ancient philosopher Plato described humans as prisoners chained in a cave, watching shadows from the world of ideas, projected by shafts of sunlight onto the walls of the cave, and mistakenly assuming them for reality. But the truth is not what is most important. It is the hope that people cling to, their joy in living, as well as their sadness and foolishness, for God embraces all people, equally and fairly, with his love.”
