The Definition of the Thing

I have climbed up on the blog twice this morning, and twice it has thrown me off. As an act of sheer desperation I give you the following homework assignment:

Do you see Columbia's Villages as being self-contained? Why, or why not?

First, a definition:



(of a thing) complete, or having all that is needed, in itself.

synonyms: complete, independent, separate, free-standing, enclosed

"each train was a self-contained unit"

From Wikipedia: Columbia is a planned community comprising ten self-contained villages, located in Howard County, Maryland—the second wealthiest county in the United States, according to 2013 U.S. Census Bureau figures.

So, what do you think? And, does it matter?
