I looked up Milton and what I read I agreed with. He was truly a man ahead of his time. His ideas of metaphors for life, his belief that we all often experience a trance like state, his way of helping those with problems - borne out by his affecting their cure on many occasions.

I like analogies, too, as it makes one's point more clearly understood. To paraphrase what I said in my Concept of the Whole and Threadism, "Can it be explained how a colour television works to a horse? That is what we are up against when trying to discover the understanding of the Universe." Like the horse, we do not have the language or concept of such things outside our own limited dimensions of reality. But still we learn much.
Thanks for the link.
