    I remember some Buddhist story describing Man as having nine doors - namely the ears, eyes, nostrils, arse, dick and mouth. Maybe the answer to this riddle is that when a baby is in the womb all of its 'doors' are closed, then when the door to the womb opens and the baby is born, all its doors open. Or something like that.

    The "door" that closes is the babies navel (belly button) when it is born and the other 9 "doors" open.

    What about the second part - when do 9 doors close and 1 open?!

    I thought of that, but then it's possible to die with many of your doors still open. In fact, it'd be highly unusual to die with all your doors closed. Maybe the answer to the second part needs to be more specific. Death by concrete, something like that.
