Against Images and Similes.  By images and similes we convince, but we do not prove.  That is why science has such a horror of images and similes.  Science does not want to convince or make plausible, and rather seeks to provoke cold distrust by its mode of expression, by the bareness of its walls.  For distrust is the touchstone for the gold of certainty.
