Whilst the merit of the "dragging in of models" is questionable, we cannot ignore that we bring certain baggage (both positive and negative) into our approach to the Dhamma, based on our previous experiences, thoughts, beliefs, language and exposure to society. We cannot deny that these impact the way we approach the Dhamma, nor should we ignore them. In fact, we should aim to be cognizant of this baggage in order to help us transcend that which is not valuable, and to harness that which is in harmony with the Dhamma.
