Analogies in physics are necessary and also dangerous. That doesn’t mean you should stop teaching with analogies; they are useful bridges. But it must be iterated repeatedly that the analogy is not the thing even though it may end up being the only thing one understands. https://www.lockhaven.edu/~dsimanek/scenario/analogy.htm

There is an experience we have direct exposure to in terms of anything relatable.
Religious experiences. It is no coincidence that they often go hand-in-hand.
 For an analogy, yes. The symptoms are the same. Left speechless. Can’t explain properly, can only experience. But the experience takes training to get to that level and it’s not easy, etc.
