I get concerned that if one was to solve the universe, sharing it would be the equivalent of a spoiler for the rest of the players in the game.

In terms of Plato’s cave – One of the dudes turns around and notices there’s the rest of the world behind him and then turns back around trying to work out how to break the news to his companions. Only to then have his companions get incredibly grumpy for him having hesitated for even a moment in telling them.

I haven’t read Kant’s essay. I’d imagine my argument would follow the same rough metaphorical lines.
