The Science of Existence (50) Paradigms


Our minds are filled with concepts. Templates for conceptual organization are paradigms. It is not that paradigms are in any sense “true” – no more than concepts are anything but convenient fictions. Instead, our minds strike a pose with paradigms and we come to believe that they are true because they are useful. So, we perceive that Nature follows patterns which couple time and space to produce systematic confluences of dynamic and domain which can be concisely conceptualized. Hence, the world before us appears comprehensible.
