(The complete answer to my previous question- monotremes, the members of the order Monotrema, which are the duck billed platypus and the echinda.)

Are they, like, reference frames?

Cause if they are, they exist, like in Gallilean Relativity and Special and General Relativity.

(I mean, what else could it be? Like, do the "forms" exist or not? How could you say yes or no to that?)

Well I wouldn't think they would exist if they were reference frames. The only 'ultimate' frame of reference is light. So I'm willing to say that Plato's frames do not exist.

If I'm right:
Why do you never find a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow? (Scientific answer please :P)

If they are reference frames, there is NO preferred reference frame. There was a theorized "ether"-the ultimate reference frame with which the universe is moving with respect to- but that was proved to be false in the early 1900's. I don't know what plato's "frames" are, but my best guess would that it has something to do with philosophy as opposed to physics as plato was more a philosopher... but since it's a yes/no question... I'll just guess yes since the last person guessed no and one of us has to be right.

Well the aether doesn't exist. The Michelson-Morely experiment proved that. The aether was just a medium for light to progergate, as people thought everything (including electromagnetic waves) had to move through something

Because rainbows don't touch the ground.

And leprechauns don't exist. Because I put an end to them.

Little perverted pyros.
