Lacuna: A lacuna is a gap or a missing part, most often used metamorphically for an intellectual blind spot, a gap in intelligence, or missing information. Lacuna is already a metaphor and shares its etymology with lake and lagoon.
Scientists hit a black box, a lacuna in knowledge they can't describe despite understanding more or less what fed into and what evolved out of it.
