Q: what does 'rough analogy' mean?(uppercase part below)

"As light travels through space it decays or grows dimmer with distance. Think of a firework bursting in the night sky. When the firework first bursts the sparks are bunched close to each other. Over a short period of time they quickly spread out from each other. If you replace sparks with photons of light and the firework with your light source than you have a very ROUGH ANALOGY to how and why light decays. "
A: An analogy is something that explains a concept by comparing it to something else. In this situation, the writer is helping you understand how/why light decays by comparing it to fireworks. A “rough analogy” just means that the analogy (comparison) is not perfect, because this concept is difficult, but it should help you understand a little bit better. I hope this helps!

Q: For an analogy, the world is an elephant, and we human being are a group of blind people. Human being can not see what the elephant looks like, however, they are still curious about what it is. Those who are curious about the ears of elephant become earicians. Those who are curious about the legs of the elephant become legicians. As time pass by, legsicians were devided into leftforelegicians, rightforelegicians, lefthindlegcians and righthindlegcians.

When earics and legics were invented, the study of them both started from what-balahbalah-of-the-elephant-looks-like, why-balahbalah-looks-like-that, and how-to-do-when-we-meet-balahbalah.

The reason why it is so hard for me to decide which area to study further in the future is that I am curious not only about what the legs of the elephant looks like, but also about why its trunk can spray water. Also, I want to know how it communicates with othet elephants. Wait, are there any other elephants?If none, where this single elephant came from?

In short, I am curious about everything of the elephant, not limited in some parts in it.

I am curious about the whole world, not limited in some areas in the world. soa natural?
