Through the Digital Doorway of Dignity

The journey into the Adelaidezone and then into Villa Twaklinilkawt is, for most visitors, a serendipitous one.  It usually begins in a curious, questioning mind.

No-one is forced to take that journey.  There is no pressure to do so.

To the most ignorant visitors, arriving at the gatehouse of Villa Twaklinilkawt is usually either viewed as a privilege or an entitlement.  They are usually unaware that they have already received several privileges before that occurs.

All privileges tend to be viewed comparatively narrowly before a person becomes aware of the unprivileged and underprivileged alternatives.  The more enlightened visitors always feel privileged within the glorious gateway of gratitude.  They additionally know they are privileged in the courtyard of compassion.

Like many perceptions about rights, responsibilities and obligations, gaining privileged access to Villa Twaklinilkawt is viewed in many different ways by many different people.  How do you view it?  Do you associate it with attaining non-digital access?

Visitors with a little more experience of Villa Twaklinikawt usually have proper respect for its ethereal proprietor, the staff and the volunteers. The most well-informed visitors know that their privileges begin long before reaching the courtyard of compassion.  Even going through the Twaklin gate is seen as a privilege by those persons.  Indeed, they have often wondered why access to that privilege is not yet treated as one of the premium services here.

A simple, gracious welcome is often a privilege when the rest of the world does not provide it.  Experiencing a relatively safe and prosperous location is a privilege, until one or more stupid governments destroy it.

Within the gatehouse of Villa Twaklinilkawt, after passing by the currently closed invisible ticket office and allowing the mind to rise to a higher purpose, the visitor enters through the digital doorway of dignity and into the natural common room
