Metaphors

I'm having problems understanding how a conduit metaphor is different from a "normal" metaphor. I understand the whole ideas are objects, linguistic expressions are containers and communication is sending but I don't understand how it's different from the usual kind of metaphors.

Could someone be so kind as to explain it to me?

Thanks in advance!
