Paradigm Shift: How changes in our models and metaphors affect our lives
A simple explanation of Thomas Kuhn’s concept of the paradigm shift, as described in his 1962 book “The Structure of Scientific Revolutions” Which says that knowledge is acquired within a model or paradigm, and when new knowledge is acquired that no longer fits, a new paradigm is required and the old one is destroyed. Thus a paradigm shift is as much a destructive process and a constructive one.
In the video below Bob Proctor shows how our perceptions by the paradigms (models & metaphors) we see the world through. Our paradigms determine our habitual behaviors so a paradigm shift can cause a disruption to our daily routine.
Paradigm Shift Areas
As humanity begins the process of transformation, the paradigm shift is notable in several key areas. These areas will continue to deepen as others also become more evident. Some key paradigm shift areas are:
- Spiritual Evolution
- UFOs & Disclosure
- Transition to a New Economy
- Sustainable Lifestyle
- Healthy Eating
- Conscious Relationships
- Environmental Issues
Paradigm Shift Impacts
Changes in our models & metaphors affect our lives. When our model shifts, so do our perceptions and habitual behaviors, creating upsets.
