Allegory of the cave

Allegory of the cave:
I found this really interesting and it made me questions whats “real” and whats not. The dictionary definition of “real” is something to be actually existing as a thing or occurring in fact; not imagined or supposed. However the question we get from this is how do we know if something actually exists? If all our lives we have been stuck in a world where they teach us that the colour orange is in fact black we will come to believe and think of the colour orange as black. However does that still make it “real”? because for us it is “actually existing” and “occurring”.
