First of all a paradigm is a pattern, an established pattern. Established patterns become habitual and ingrained. Hence they are difficult to think outside of. Secondly, a new pattern is a complex set of observations, conclusions and policy recommendations that all point in the same philosophical direction that numerous theorists and reformers in the area in which the new paradigm is applicable come to….and yet their individual discoveries and conclusions are fragmentary and incomplete. Consequently they do not fully perceive the new paradigm and do not have the “Ah ha!” moment of cognition (recognition for the first time) that is one of the signatures of new paradigm perception.
Even more importantly, the natural philosophical concept behind the new paradigm itself is not perceived, which if the area in which the new paradigm occurs is general enough, change has not occurred in that area for a long time and is germane to the healthiness and mental significance of Mankind….then it can become an even greater thing known as a zeitgeist, an ethic that enables mankind to further evolve and develop….and that is what the concept of Grace/natural personal experience of graciousness is.
