Excerpt from Unity in Nature: An Analogy Between, Music and Life

Being an Engineer by choice and profession, it seemed but natural that the analogy with which these pages deal should, from the very first, have exerted a powerful fascination over me; for Engineers lean almost entirely on analogy for their inspirations and progresses. In this respect our professions differ from the less practical but more logical ones, whose members are satisfied with the finality which is associated with what they accept as proofs. These, although they determine Judges, juries and the public, even in matters of Life and Death, or Peace and War, are only too often based on false or insufficient evidence and on sophistical arguments. On the other hand, Engineers and in fact all Scientists abhor every suggestion of finality, for that is a stumbling block to improvement and progress. They feel that, from first to last, each experiment is but the analogue of the next one, that the inventors sketch is but the analogue of the finished machine and that there is no end to possible researches and improvements. To this tendency of Engineers, to lean on analogy, might be attributed the slowness of mechanical progress, but it is far more correct to say that practical advances have generally been hampered for want, at the time, of suitable materials.
