“You shall not pass!”
I will never forget Ian McKellan as Gandalf, setting a boundary with the very proclamation. Boundaries are necessary for life whether natural or manmade; physical, verbal or mental.
The sea hammers at the coastline; gales unleash walls of water at it, yet the cliffs stand firm. Erosion takes a long time. In a millenium or more, this may have been hammered back so that a beach separates the two. Now, the rock is a solid wall.
Manmade barriers can be as solid, even if slightly more flimsy in appearance (in comparison to granite).
Sometimes, boundaries are necessary to preserve life, even if they might seem to exist only to frustrate our desire to be free.
