No, not THAT kind of 'spearsharpening' - you lovely sickos - think more of cavemen hiding in the back of their caves, sharpening spears and fearing to go out into the early dawn when the saber-tooths were finishing up their own hunts.

Or, if you'd prefer something more recent, Plato's cave parable. Where in those trapped within by their fears butcher the one who would lead them out of the cave and into the light. Sticking with the familiar can become a curse.

Having a mental 'base of operations' is good until you lock the gates and never get out there and try new things. This is why dalliance is a good thing. Being open to new experiences is not only fantastic fun but is also good for you in a psycho-emotional sense.

You agree with me, of course. *EG*

Outside the Wall (Waters)

All alone, or in two's,
The ones who really love you
Walk up and down outside the wall.
Some hand in hand
And some gathered together in bands.
The bleeding hearts and artists
Make their stand.

And when they've given you their all
Some stagger and fall, after all it's not easy
Banging your heart against some mad bugger's wall.

It is indeed a wonderous thing to step outside the cave for the first time....

Its sad that some only watch the shadows on the wall.
We are the bold adventurers,leaving the cave to find that all we know is just a trick of the light.
