- The idea that something is missing or something has been lost
- A flaw, irregularity, or the idea that something is not quite right
- An opening or opportunity from something to pass from one area to another, such as a person climbing through a large hole in a fence, or data leaking through a "hole" in computer security
A hole in clothing can represent a feeling of shabbiness, inferiority, or a threat to one's personal boundaries.
Being down in a hole can mean you're feeling trapped or at a "dead end" somehow in your real life.
