Basic ideas of comparisons that are abstract vs concrete

There are basically two ways to compare items:

1. concrete:  what you can identify with the five senses (sight, touch, sound, hear, smell)

2. abstract : what you can not identify with the five senses (concepts, functions, ideas, purposes, goals, personality)


The concrete comparison is more superficial, the abstract more complete or in-depth.

We want the more in-depth comparison because we want our learning to be in-depth, or complete.
