There's a lot of these. Feel free to share your understanding.

I almost posted this under belief systems, but I thought this could use a thread of its own.

"A firewall is a set of related programs, located at a network gateway server, that protects the resources of a private network from users from other networks. (The term also implies the security policy that is used with the programs.) An enterprise with an intranet that allows its workers access to the wider Internet installs a firewall to prevent outsiders from accessing its own private data resources and for controlling what outside resources its own users have access to.

Basically, a firewall, working closely with a router program, examines each network packet to determine whether to forward it toward its destination. A firewall also includes or works with a proxy server that makes network requests on behalf of workstation users. A firewall is often installed in a specially designated computer separate from the rest of the network so that no incoming request can get directly at private network resources."

I post this particular aspect because it is significant anytime we want to change.
A change - something new - has to find its way through our firewall in order to manifest
as reality. This is a very real mechanism in the brain which I don't think I'll go into
because of the complexities, but the brain/knowledge/past has priority over what new
knowledge will be allowed as reality. And the firewall system is precisely how.
When you read "security", this is the primary intent of the ego-mind-past.
"Other networks" = new thoughts/ideas/reality.
"Network" = neuronet... etc.
Anyway, I don't feel like explaining much - if you see it you see it.
