White Castle or Voluntary Incarceration

Incarcerate is to confine a person in jail or prison upon conviction for committing a crime. The duration of incarceration is strongly dependant on the severity of the crime. Throughout the history of mankind there has been much debate on confinement effectiveness in terms of criminal behaviour reformation. So, why anyone would even think about willful imprisonment?

Some religions consider voluntary incarceration a standard spiritual exercise. Buddhist monks, for instance, had a tendency to brick themselves up literally in caves so that they could practice meditation for months, years, and sometimes for the whole life. They never came in contact with other people except there was a small opening in their caves for receiving food which was delivered in complete silence. Through the same opening they could track the succession of day and night and the vicissitude of the seasons. Voluntary (or intentional, deliberate, willful) incarceration is not as uncommon even today as it may seem. Apparently, it is regarded as very beneficial for personality development.

The word “castle” comes from the Latin word “castellum” meaning "fortress". This is small for “castrum” which means "fortified place". The concept of a castle was introduced into the English language right before the Norman Conquest to define a type of a new military fortress brought to England by the Norman nobility. In French, however, the word “château” (also a derivative from ”castellum”) was used to describe a grand country house for purely residential purposes.
