The Cave

75% of the reason for calling my blog "Beyond the Cave" represents my decision to reference the eternal human need to make sense of the world around us. It is based on Plato's Allegory of the Cave, in which Plato uses a simple story to depict how little we actually know and how easily we might be mistaken about the things we think we know.

20% of the reason for calling my blog "Beyond the Cave" stems from my love of Batman. As Batman enthusiasts probably know, the Batcave is considered to be Batman's headquarters. This secret lair is located below Bruce Wayne's (Batman's alter-ego) mansion. It is from where Batman monitors Gotham City, where he conducts his detective work, where his equipment is hidden, and where many of Batman's crime-solving epiphanies occur.

The remaining 5% of the reason for calling my blog "Beyond the Cave" comes from my strange sense of connection to caves. As a child, I distinctly remember driving along curvy mountainous roads imagining the lives of the creatures that lived in the caves that I saw. I feel both fear and excitement when thinking about caves - kind of like how I feel when I write this blog.

But the point of this post is to ask for your help in picking a dedicated domain name for this blog. Unfortunately since is currently taken, I am left with having to choose a different, less obvious name. Including the word "cave" is a must but just doesn't sound right. What do you think?
