Good stuff.... Paradigms are second-order

Good stuff....
Paradigms are second-order information. They frame the eddies. They determine which questions are sensible to ask and which issues are urgent. They enable science to proceed with its daily tasks. They require, by definition, an act of genius to be born. But perhaps we have entered a time when multiple paradigms can exist.

The Web is ready for this but the real world isn't ... and the funding comes from the real world.
