Our Own Space
In building a house, you must first separate the space from the ground, with a foundation. After this, you separate the space from everything else in the world, with the walls.
This separation is not perfect. That is why we build doors and windows, through which we are able to move between the different spaces. The world is safer, looking at limited areas and framed segments from behind the windows.
