No simile can perfectly represent God in full sense

The similes given for God are always worldly items, which are definable by space and time. God is beyond space and time and no simile can perfectly represent God in full sense. This defect brings the doubts in the minds of human beings since their minds cannot cross the dimensions of space and time. Veda gives three similes (Tatha Aksharat..) in explaining the process of creation from God but no simile can convey the full meaning because all the similes are worldly items only. The world comes out of God like the net from spider, like plants from earth and like hair and nails from the human body.
