Title

Plato's The Allegory of the Cave and The Existence of Parallel Realities: A Study of Parallel Universes in Cinema with Special Reference to the movie Coherence.

Authors

Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to study the philosophical as well the scientific concept of reality, specifically parallel realities, right from the time of Plato to the modern times by making use of both philosophical arguments and scientific theories. Plato explains the philosophy of reality in his The Allegory of the Cave, which has been compared to that of the scientific theory of the hypothetical existence of parallel realities in Hugh Everett’s Multiple Worlds Theory. While it is only a hypothesis and can be considered as a manifestation of the human psyche, a number of modern fiction and sci-fi cinema emerged that used parallel reality as their dominant theme. This paper intends to study the manner in which the notion of parallel reality has been employed in the movie Coherence (2013), directed by James Ward Byrkit. The significance of this study is to underline the fact that reality is not concrete but easily malleable. It focuses on the power of the human mind to alter realities by making a choice in one’s individual realities. The study has been conducted by making use of secondary sources like books, a number of websites and YouTube videos.
