Differentially permeable? Do you mean selectively permeable?

to keep the good stuff in and let/keep the bad stuff out.

Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;

Maybe we should say: Generally keep needed stuff in.

An analogy? Hmm. It is difficult to find one that is true for all.
