“Into the hands of every individual is given a marvelous power for good or evil---the silent, unconscious, unseen influence of his life. This is simply the radiation of what man really is, not what he pretends to be.”
William George Jordan

Hugh MacLeod
“The old ways are dead. And you need people around you who concur. That means hanging out more with the creative people, the freaks, the real visionaries, than you're already doing. Thinking more about what their needs are, and responding accordingly. Avoid the dullards; avoid the folk who play it safe. They can't help you anymore. Their stability model no longer offers that much stability. They are extinct, they are extinction.”
Hugh MacLeod

Chris Kraus
“Female monsters take things as personally as they really are. They study facts. Even if rejection makes them feel like the girl who's not invited to the party, they have to understand the reasons why.
... Every question, once it's formulated, is a paradigm, contains its own internal truth. We have to stop diverting ourselves with false questions. And I told Warren: I aim to be a female monster too.”
Chris Kraus, I Love Dick

“History is boring, unless you see it from the right perspective. perspective is important.
Corn growing in a field appears orderless, till one turns the corner and sees the rows line up. a pixelized photo is unrecognizable, till one zooms out. All the the numbers are on a combination lock but it will not open till they are in the right sequence.
So it is with history - all the names, dates and places are there, but it is not until they are seen from the right perspective that lessons become clear. history is boring, until it comes into focus.”
William J Federer, Change to Chains-The 6,000 Year Quest for Control -Volume I-Rise of the Republic

“Every age, every generation has its built in assumptions, that the world is flat, that the world is round etc. There are hundreds of hidden assumptions, things we take for granted, that may or may not be true. Of-course in the vast majority of cases historically, these things aren’t true. So presumably, if history is any guide, much about what we take for granted about the world simply isn’t true. But we’re locked into these precepts without even knowing it. That’s a paradigm.”
John Hagelin Ph.D

Talismanist Giebra
“This story has never happened but it is real.
Once upon a time, in a surreal paradigm.”

“You can’t change and be somebody else in the future unless you start becoming a little better at being that future person today.⁣⁣”

“Know as you go is the new Paradigm”

Petros Scientia
“Worldviews seem real but they aren’t real. Our worldviews tend to guide our thinking about everything. And then our assumptions come out of those worldviews.”
Petros Scientia, Exposing the REAL Creation-Evolution Debate: The Absolute Proof of the Biblical Account

Petros Scientia
“When one person’s worldview differs from the worldview of another person, everything is fine until the two people realize that they aren’t seeing eye to eye. Each thinker will regard anything that clashes with his or her worldview to be insane and in conflict with reality.”
Petros Scientia, Exposing the REAL Creation-Evolution Debate: The Absolute Proof of the Biblical Account

Petros Scientia
“Worldviews are fake realities made up of past interpretations. Interpretations aren’t the same as observations, and they aren’t the same as experiences. Interpretations add to the experiences of the past, and what they add is unreliable. What they add ultimately consists of made-up stuff mixed with flawed memories of some things that may or may not have worked in the past.”
Petros Scientia, Exposing the REAL Creation-Evolution Debate: The Absolute Proof of the Biblical Account

“Any scientist that wants to change the prevailing paradigm is automatically branded a heretic, apostate, infidel, blasphemer, maverick or lunatic, exactly as happens with religion. The scientist must break with his peers, and have his job, career and funding placed in extreme jeopardy. How many careerist scientists are up for that? The answer is zero. The result is that scientists go on thinking what the establishment and the funding bodies expect them to think, even though they themselves must, deep down, know they are supporting ludicrous claims that make no sense.”
Thomas Stark, Extra Scientiam Nulla Salus: How Science Undermines Reason

Graham Hancock
“After the first Neanderthal skeletal remains were identified in Europe in the nineteenth century it was, for a very long while, one of the fundamental unquestioned assumptions of archaeology, a matter taken to be self-evidently true, that other "older," "less-evolved" human species never attained, or even in their wildest dreams could hope to aspire, to the same levels of cultural development as Homo sapiens. During more than a century of subsequent analysis, and despite multiple additional discoveries, the Neanderthals continued to be depicted as nothing more than brutal, shambling, stupid subhumans--literally morons by comparison with ourselves. Since the beginning of the second decade of the twenty-first century, however, and with increasing certainty as the evidence has become overwhelming, a new "image" of the Neanderthals as sensitive, intelligent, symbolic, and creative beings capable of advanced thought processes and technological innovations has taken root among archaeologists and is set to become the ruling paradigm.”
Graham Hancock, America Before: The Key to Earth's Lost Civilization

“We need to have a quintessence belief that our deed can fundamentally change the paradigm or way of thinking about dilemmas.”
Prof.Salam Al Shereida

Maggie Nelson
“Once we name something, you said, we can never see it the same way again. All that is unnameable falls away, gets lost, is murdered. You called this the cookie-cutter function of our minds. You said that you knew this not from shunning language but from immersion in it, on the screen, in conversation, onstage, on the page.”
Maggie Nelson, The Argonauts

Richie Norton
“What you see is your life and what you see is behind your eyeballs, not in front.”
Richie Norton

Morris Berman
“This is the ultimate heresy, then, and a possible outcome of a history of ascent, of system-breaks and paradigm-shifts that are exciting on one level, tedious on another: life characterized by so much somatic security, so much incarnation, that the need for “truth” is far less important than the need for love; and finally, not really in conflict with it. Incarnation means living in life, not transcending it. The last paradigm-shift has to be a shift to a world in which paradigm-shifts become unnecessary, if not actually banal.”
Morris Berman, Coming to Our Senses: Body and Spirit in the Hidden History of the West

Petros Scientia
“Worldviews aren’t even directly pragmatic. Many parts of our worldviews don’t even work. They limit us. They interfere with us. They hold us down. Some parts of our worldviews may be accurate while other parts of our worldviews are wildly inaccurate. And yet, every part of every person’s worldview seems accurate to the person who owns the worldview.”
Petros Scientia, Exposing the REAL Creation-Evolution Debate: The Absolute Proof of the Biblical Account

Petros Scientia
“Our experiences didn’t form our worldviews; our interpretations did; but how do we interpret our experiences? The problem develops in our interpretations.”
Petros Scientia, Exposing the REAL Creation-Evolution Debate: The Absolute Proof of the Biblical Account

Petros Scientia
“Here’s how we interpret our experiences. Assumptions come out of our worldviews, and our worldviews are based on previous interpretations of experiences. This is why one person’s assumptions will often be very different from another person’s assumptions. Worldviews vary from person to person in extreme ways.”
Petros Scientia, Exposing the REAL Creation-Evolution Debate: The Absolute Proof of the Biblical Account

Petros Scientia
“Our assumptions and presuppositions filter our perceptions of reality without any conscious effort. Even when we’re trying to be objective, we can’t get outside of ourselves to be unbiased. In addition, we have outside influences that also distort our perceptions of reality.”
Petros Scientia, Exposing the REAL Creation-Evolution Debate: The Absolute Proof of the Biblical Account

Petros Scientia
“At the end of all the filtering, we take the distorted perception of reality and add it to our worldviews. Since the worldview created most of the filter in the first place, most of what goes back into the worldview is confirmation bias.”
Petros Scientia, Exposing the REAL Creation-Evolution Debate: The Absolute Proof of the Biblical Account

Petros Scientia
“We should also note that a great deal of what is in a worldview isn’t even direct experience. We watch talking heads and videos that shape our worldviews. We read books and watch movies that shape our worldviews. Many other influences work on us, and most of these have been designed to shape our worldviews without our awareness. Our friends also influence us for good or evil. We daydream and rationalize and shape our worldviews that way. Worldviews are fake realities that seem deceptively real. Most of the time, we never question our worldviews but blindly trust them to run our lives. That’s the definition of living a lie.”
Petros Scientia, Exposing the REAL Creation-Evolution Debate

Petros Scientia
“Truth is only available through Jesus Christ. Even though assumptions don’t come out of whole cloth, they still consist of made-up stuff.”
Petros Scientia, Exposing the REAL Creation-Evolution Debate: The Absolute Proof of the Biblical Account

“Nostalgia is an excessive sentimentality for the past, for home. It is associated with a yearning to return to a happy and safe period in your life. The word comes from nóstos, meaning “homecoming”, and álgos, meaning “pain” or “ache”. It’s all about the “good old days”, and “the good times”. Conservatism revolves around nostalgia. All right wingers are nostalgic, and suffer from future shock and future fear. Science is about extreme nostalgia for the material atoms of the ancient Greeks. Materialism is entirely dead in the era of quantum mechanics, yet scientists go on believing in matter anyway. They are highly conservative individuals unwilling to contemplate leaving the home materialism has provided for them. The last thing they want is to end up in the Unknown Land of Mind, where thought, not matter, is core reality. That would ruin everything for the scientific materialists and empiricists.”
Thomas Stark, Extra Scientiam Nulla Salus: How Science Undermines Reason

“Scientists see what they want to see, and think what their paradigm requires them to think. The paradigm in which science is conducted dictates the way in which scientists make sense of the supposedly objective data that their experiments generate. A different paradigm would lead to a drastically different understanding and treatment of the same data. This is a fact that scientists have never understood, and refuse to acknowledge. Not a single neuroscientist on earth would ever interpret any data whatsoever as suggesting that the mind is separate from the brain, hence every interpretation already reflects the conclusion – established before a single experiment has been performed – that the brain is the source of the mind. Is that what we call “science”?”
Thomas Stark, Extra Scientiam Nulla Salus: How Science Undermines Reason

“Empiricists say, “Where’s your evidence?” In fact, our evidence is every piece of evidence ever gathered by science. Our disagreement is not with the evidence, it’s with the interpretation of the evidence. Every scientist interprets the evidence via the Meta Paradigm of empiricism and materialism, leading to wholly bizarre and irrational conclusions. The correct way to interpret the evidence is via rationalism and idealism. When has any scientific experiment ever refuted rationalism and idealism and proved the truth of empiricism and materialism? Scientists are so ignorant and philosophically illiterate that they don’t even realize they are engaged in interpretation rather than factuality.”
Thomas Stark, God Is Mathematics: The Proofs of the Eternal Existence of Mathematics

“Scientists believe they can trump any opponent by saying, “Where is your physical evidence?” That statement – their reflexive go-to statement – is the core of their fallacy, because it has already excluded all hidden variables, non-observables, and the whole noumenal inside of reality.”
Thomas Stark, Inside Reality: The Inner View of Existence

“Between concentric pavement ripples glide errant echoes originating from beyond the Puddled Metropolis. Windowless blocks and pickle-shaped monuments demarcate the boundaries of patternistic cycles from those wilds kissed neither by starlight nor moonlight. Lethal underbrush of razor-like excrescence pierces at the skins of night, crawls with hyperactive sprouts and verminous vines that howl with contempt for the wicked fortunes of Marshland Organizers armed with scythes and hoes and flaming torches who have only succeeded in crafting their own folly where once stood something of glorious and generous integrity. There are familiar whispers under leaves perched upon by flapping moths. They implore the spirit again to heed the warnings of the vines and to not be swayed by the hubris of these organizing opportunists. One is to stop moving at frantic zigzags through gridlocked streets, stop climbing ladders altogether, stop relying on drainage pipes where floods should prevail, stop tapping one’s feet in waiting rooms expecting to be seen and examined and acknowledged. Rather, one is to eschew unseemly fabrications and conceal oneself beneath the surface of leaves—perhaps even inside the droplets of dew—one is, after all, to feel shameful of the form, of all forms, and seek instead to merge with whispers which do not shun or excoriate, for they are otherwise occupied in the act of designating meaning. Yet, what meaning stands beyond the rectitude of angles and symmetry, but rather in wilds among agitated insects and resplendent bogs and malicious spiders and rippling mosses pronouncing doom upon their surroundings? One is said to find only the same degree of opportunism, and nothing greatly edifying that could serve to extend beyond the banalities of self-preservation. But no, surely there is something more than this—there absolutely must be something more, and it is to be found! Forget what is said about ‘opportunism’—this is just a word and, thusly, a distraction. The key issue is that there are many such campaigns of contrivance mounted by the taxonomic self-interest of categories and frameworks ‘who’ only seek primacy and authority over their consumers. The ascription of ‘this’ may thusly be ascribed also with that of ‘this other’ and so it cannot be ‘that precisely’ because ‘this’ contradicts another ‘that other’ with which ‘this other’ surely claims affiliation. Certainly, in view of such limiting factors, there is a frustration that one is bound to feel that the answers available are constrained and formulaic and insufficient and that one is simply to accept the way of things as though they are defined by the highest of mathematics and do not beget anything higher. One is, thusly, to cease in one’s quest for unexplored possibility. The lines have been drawn, the contradictions defined and so one cannot expect to go very far with these mathematical rules and boundaries in place. There are ways out: one might assume the value of an imaginary unit and bounce out of any restrictive quadrant as with the errant echoes against the rippling pavement of this Puddled Metropolis. One will then experience something akin to a bounding and rebounding leap—iterative, but with all subleaps constituting a more sweeping trajectory—outward to other landscapes and null landscapes, inward through corridors and toward the centroid of circumcentric chamber clusters, into crevices and trenches between paradigms and over those mountain peaks of abstruse calculation.”
