I wonder which perspective we are supposed to view this from. Are we trapped and looking out to black tower beyond? Perhaps, thinking about all the dualities in this deck, we are on the side of the white pillar. Or are we the person inside the gate, standing by the door of the black tower? Either way,, we are trapped in only one perspective. A gate bars the way to the other side - our left and right brain cannot be united unless we open the gate.

The gate doesn't appear to be locked though - it looks as though you could just push it open. So what is it that prevents us from stepping across? XII and XXI - The Hanged Man and The World are the cornerstones of the stone around the gate. Is this the key?
