Allegory of the cave:

We can only use our senses to perceive the world and thus whatever we perceive depends on how our senses are calibrated, it might be the case that the senses distort the information from the real world. In essence, we can never know if what we perceive is truly reality.

Ever seen The Matrix? That's pretty much it.

cave in super retard terms

Say you had a kid, and threw him in a cave with no social contact at all. And you bound him to a wall, only showing him the dead end face of the wall from birth. No contact with him at all, nothing. Now say you had a paintball gun and were standing behind him (Facing the wall as well) and started shooting at the wall. Now do this for a few years while he grows up, still bound to the wall only able to see the far side of the cave with paint on it.

That would be his reality. He would think that existence, the universe, physics, philosophy was just a wall with colors being shot at it several nanoseconds after a small popping noise.

That's similar to what we live and how we experience our own lives(as free as they may sound). We only know of what we can sense with our own personal senses and research. Our world is the back of this little cave and we cant even begin to think of anything else because like your son (you monster), he has no idea what is behind him or outside of the cave, or that it even exists.
