Home always wins

In the series “What are you made of” I am interested in the allegory of our physical body vs our human cravings and addictions whether they are acquired or hereditary.
A phycological dependence and addiction to hedonism motivate people to seek immediate sensations and momentary pleasures only to find out that they can never be fullfilled. But very often these impulsions end up to illusions.
This piece has the meaning of illusion, when you go for broke but you still believe you are a winner.
The house symbolizes our personality and what we are made of.
