Thought for the Moment

A paradigm shift does not arrive by means of linear argument. In fact, the transformation involves an array of operations, and within this array, linear argument appears as simply one method among many.

The reason is, that a paradigm shift involves discontinuity, and discontinuity precludes linearity because linearity requires continuity. And so in the business of paradigm-shifting, linear argument is a tool which brings the work of transformation to a threshhold beyond which lies a gap. But that gap can only be crossed by means of something discontinuous. Something abrupt.

This element of discontinuity or abruptness translates into an act of pure will, or more precisely, will-to-power.

I forget who said, but someone said that new ideas become accepted in science not by people changing their minds, by by the old generation dying out.

The future really is the kids, and a lot of them are red-pillers.
