the man of thorns stands guard at the edge, at the threshold, and protects. and sends the enemy to the gates of hell.
(this page discusses the definition of a door, when is a partition something that closes a gap in a wall, and when is it a door. hinges? appearance? distance from the floor? and does the door belong to the private or public domain, and how to use a key to go from these two domains without doing any prohibited carrying between domains.
one of the partitions that is discussed as a door is a bundle of thorns. this leads to interpreting the verse from Micah about a man of thorns being a protection and sending enemies to gehenna, hell)
