Cages

Everyone wants to be free, or to believe they are anyway. There's a saying that goes around sometimes, "One can be bound in the tightest chains and still be a free man." In the real world, it's the routines and mindsets that bind us most frequently. They're little things we don't think about, and it frequently never crosses our mind to change them.  In a sense, we form our own cages in our thoughts.

Similar things happen in SL. We get bound in our group of friends, our favorite clubs, and our homes. Sure we get into shenanigans, but it's usually with our friends too. Exploring beyond what we do so well seems pointless when we're content, and the risk never quite seems to pay off in happiness. So we go back to our familiar places, and stay far from where we would otherwise stray. In this manner, we build ourselves just as surely into cages as in the real world.
