Irigaray contests that the "outside" world and the cave are one in sameness. Both are representations of the other. The cave Socrates or Plato invisioned plays images of the world, through shadows, and in that way the images of the world are an adaptation of the cave shadow. As individuals, we must take into account both versions and see them as equal truths. The sun and the fire both produce light.
