Dangerous, this Analogy

It could be that if your world is explained primarily through analogy, you are living in lack.

A world lacking of a fuller description, understanding and explanations. A world lacking in a fuller picture.

Analogies are but tools. What was true for one, may not hold for another.
Also, if the tool itself is flawed, the work done by the tool will have some incompleteness. Something lacking.
So there's two dangers: The Flaw in the tool of Analogy and the actual Analogies themselves.

Therefore, tread carefully.

Some links that support my thoughts (there's plenty more out there):
