A symbol of individuality—of private thoughts. The windows symbolize the possibility of understanding and of passing through to the external and
the beyond, and are also an illustration of any idea of communication. Hence, a
closed room lacking windows may be symbolic of virginity, according to Frazer,

The legend about Danae, shut up by her father in a bronze tower, pertains to this
particular symbolism. There is a Siberian legend concerning a ‘dark house of iron’

of the eight emblems of good luck in Chinese Buddhism, and a symbol of wholeness, of the idea with no ‘exit’, or, in other words, of supreme intelligence triumphant over birth and death (signified respectively by the doors and windows of
the room) (5). This explains why the hermetically sealed room may possibly be
a variant form of the ‘vase with a lid’.

The mystic ‘Centre’, or the ‘unvarying mean’, is the fixed point which
all symbolic traditions concur in designating as the ‘pole’, since the rotation of the
earth takes place around it (28). On the other hand, the pole is also identified with
the zenith. In ancient China, it was represented by the hole in the centre of the
jade disk known as Pi (7). The ‘unvarying mean’ is, nevertheless, the cause of all
change. The Chinese Book of Changes shows that the continuous metamorphoses of matter are generated by the great pole—a Oneness located far beyond all
duality, beyond all occurence, and equated with the ‘unmoved mover’ of Aristotle
(58). This contradiction between the immobile and the cause of all movement was
expressed metaphorically by the alchemists in the saying: ‘At the pole lies the
heart of Mercury, which is true fire’ (32).
