a: electric current ~
b: a flow of air inside a pipe

What:

"Here's one way to clarify the concepts of electric current and electrical energy: if electric current is like a flow of air inside a pipe, then electrical energy is like sound waves traveling through the pipe, and electrons are like the air molecules. Sound can travel through a pipe only if the pipe is full of air molecules, and electrical energy can flow along a wire only because the wire is full of movable charges."

a: Electric current ~
b: a crowd of people

What: "Electric current is like a crowd of people moving through a shopping mall. No one can move unless they are given some money by the bank. The more money they get out of the bank, the faster they will move. People flow from rich to poor. Everyone who goes into a shop comes out again. Checkout counters slow people down, and take their money. The slow checkout creates resistance and causes people to pile up into a line. If the line gets very long, people are willing to spend more money to get through."A whole page of associating shopping malls, money and electricity.

a: Electric current ~
b: Kammic force

What: "Buddhism believes in the present. With the present as the basis it argues the past and future. Just as an electric light is the outward manifestation of invisible electric energy even so man is merely the outward manifestation of an invisible energy known as Kamma. The bulb may break, and the light may be extinguished, but the current remains and the light may be reproduced in another bulb. In the same way the Kammic force remains undisturbed by the disintegration of the physical body, and the passing away of the present consciousness leads to the arising of a fresh one in another birth. Here the electric current is like the Kammic force, and the bulb may be compared to the egg-cell provided by the parents."
