Modern Science would not be possible without its continuing use of metaphor.

“As we have seen, grammatical metaphor of the ideational kind is primarily a strategy enabling us to transform our experience of the world: the model of experience construed in the congruent mode is reconstrued in the metaphorical mode, creating a model that is further removed from our everyday experience — but which has made modern science possible.”

– M.A.K. Halliday
“An Introduction to Functional Grammar”
