Filter test

Plato was walking the grounds of his academy one day, when a young student came running up

"Plato, Plato, I have heard this story about one of your students. Let me tell you!"

Plato said, "Just a moment, before you tell me this story about my student. Let us put it to the filter test. First ! Do you know for sure it is true?"

The student said "No. Not for sure."

Plato said "Is it good?"

The student said, "No it is not good."

Plato said "You want to tell me a story about one of my students!! You do not know if it is true, and it is not good"

The student looked down as Plato said " There is one final test. Is it something I can use?"

The student said, "No I don't think so."

Plato said, "Well if it is not known to be true, it is not good, I cannot use it. Why tell me at all.?"

The student went away crestfallen.

This gives you an insight as to why Plato was considered one of the greatest philosophers of all time.

It also explains why he never found out Aristotle was fucking his wife.
