Think about it.
We spend most of our days inside 4 walls doing the samething over and over. When you look at it from an higher perspective and then suppose and visualize we are only thoughts inside a body, then our houses insanely resemble a prison for the mind.

I think you are complicating things too much. A container is just a container if you decide/forced to be contained. I works like any type of barrier (perception of limit) even ideas can be limitative especially if you decide blindly to accept and agree with them...
Beliefs and attitudes can influence reasoning
Living most of our time inside buildings that have been designed entirely with the human mind cannot be compared to living in the environment Nature provides to us. I already specified I was mainly talking about the 21st century and modern civilizations, because the lifestyle we adopted and also the fact we have everything in our homes are things that are actually pulling us away from nature.
All we do for the most part is consuming entertainment and keeping the mind busy. In this instance, while we are in these mental boxes, combined by this false sense of being in a box, we just loose our bond with the universe.
This might also be why people don't give a da-m about Nature anymore and don't even respect it.
I'm only proposing it could have an impact on our thought process in the long term.
I understand your point about the limits we can put on ourselves, but in fact, I'm the kind of person who always work on himself and tries to push his limits. I'm not a prisonner of my beliefs and mental barriers and I believe the idea I provided in this thread has some truth to it.
