…an individual who is truly in an elite corps of humanity. Why is this true? It’s true because a paradigm is a single concept that simultaneously describes and is relevant to an entire new pattern. Hence it takes the willingness and ability to be mentally reductionistic and holistic at the same time. Hence it is also the ability to be unflinchingly integrative, and as integration is the very process of wisdom and wisdom itself is the discerning of the truths in real and apparent opposites….it (paradigm perception) is wisdom regarding the body of knowledge/area of human concern that a new paradigm applies to.
And the vast majority of individuals do not take the time or have the mental skills or fortitude to consistently take that course.
