“It ain’t what you don’t know that gets you into trouble. It’s what you know for sure that just ain’t so.”
—Mark Twain, American author
Sanity, defined as perception of things as they really are, is the theme of this series titled Reality Check.
It seems that we humans are in the midst of a paradigm shift.
A paradigm is the totality of how a person, a group, or an entire culture views reality.
A paradigm shift occurs when previously unnoticed truth is recognized. This truth isn’t new. It always existed but was unrecognized because purpose and attention were focused elsewhere.
I nominate Newtonian philosophy as our “about-to-be-replaced” paradigm, and quantum physics as the “previously unnoticed truth”, the discoveries of which are working their way into the mass consciousness at an ever-accelerating rate.
“Anyone who is not shocked by (quantum) physics has not understood it.”
—Niels Bohr, Danish Physicist
“The Western scientific community, and actually all of us are in a difficult spot, because in order to maintain our current mode of being, we must ignore a tremendous amount of information.”
—Cleve Backster, plant researcher and former CIA agent
“To be a true explorer in science—to follow the unprejudiced lead of pure scientific inquiry—is to be unafraid to propose the unthinkable, and to prove friends, colleagues, and scientific paradigms wrong.”
—Lynne McTaggart, author of The Field
“Everything you know about the universe and its laws is more than likely to be 99.99 percent wrong.”
—Fred Alan Wolf, Ph.D., American quantum physicist
“Paradigm-shattering experiments published in peer-reviewed journals reveal that we’re bathed in a field of intelligent energy that fills what used to be thought of as empty space.
Additional discoveries show beyond any reasonable doubt that this field responds to us—it rearranges itself—in the presence of our heart-based feelings and beliefs. And this is the revolution that changes everything.“
—Greg Braden, author of The Spontaneous Healing Of Belief
