Paradigm shift

This is a sudden shift in logic or laterial thinking.

Predominately used in reference of how science proclams something to be fact, then new research indicates otherwise. Hence the paradigm ie the concept of what is considered to be true shifts to accomodate this new data.

The issue is not that science is wrong, but that it should not be questioned. We progressively are growing a sense of nostalgia about what is true even though it may verywell be wrong. In these changing times we grab onto things as a comfort blanket in a childish attempt at holding something which is constant. However life is change.
