Thus, a falling apple and the Moon in its orbit around the Earth. In this way, many things “fall into place” in terms of a few basic ideas, principles (laws of physics) and patterns. As with many an intellectual activity, recognizing patterns and analogies, and metaphorical thinking are essential also in physics.

James Clerk Maxwell, one of the greatest physicists, put it thus: “In a pun, two truths lie hid under one expression. Indeed, physics employs many metaphors, from a pendulum’s swing and a coin’s two-sidedness, examples already familiar in everyday language, to some new to itself. Rigor is essential because analogies can also mislead, be false or fruitless. Physicists use the word “representation” to describe these alternatives that are like languages in everyday parlance.
