Forty-nine of us, forty-eight men and one woman, lay on the green waiting for the spike to open. We were too tired to talk much. We just sprawled about exhaustedly, with home-made cigarettes sticking out of our scrubby faces.
When observations occur that fail to fit into their paradigm, those stray observations are often discarded as experimental error or the prevailing paradigm is patched up to account for them.
When the prevailing paradigm becomes increasingly unable to explain the strange observations that pile up, eventually somebody would see that those stray observations pointed to a different paradigm. Physicists wrestled with the meaning of the Michelson-Morley experiment for a generation.
Then a young clerk in the Swiss patent office proposed a theory that accounted for the experimental results, although Einstein said that he was only indirectly aware of them.
He proposed his relativity theory, the Newtonian paradigm was overturned by the Einsteinian paradigm, and 20th century physics was born.
Previous assumptions were challenged and replaced, which overturned the paradigm. Einstein realized that his theories would fall by the wayside one day, and stated that every theory is eventually killed by a fact.
Einstein also realized the limitations of scientific theories. In science, unfortunately, scientists are rarely able to see beyond the paradigm that they were inculcated with. Max Planck best put it when he wrote: They saw the old paradigms with fresh eyes, and proposed new ones.
Those debates will not end anytime soon. Today, a materialistic paradigm rules the scientific establishment. Everything is seen as a mechanism.
There is no role for consciousness to play. They were all, to one degree or another, mystics. There are striking similarities between the views of the scientific fundamentalists and the religious fundamentalists, as their worldviews have little to do with the visions of their prophets and can be inversions of it.
The members of skeptical societies often operate from a faith, a faith known today as scientism, which is the worship of science, believing its methods to be the only valid path to knowledge. Woodhouse discussed paradigm challenges in the areas of: One can be for neither patriarchy nor matriarchy, but gylany, which honors both genders.
Various paradigms have become entrenched, with great economic, political, and sociological consequences attending the adherence to paradigms, or challenging them. Each of the prevailing ideologies, whether it is capitalism, nationalismmaterialism or consumerism, has its foot soldiers that defend the paradigm that puts food on their table.
In medicine, there is a broad picture to see, which has numerous facets, some of which will be presented in this essay. Masculine, Fem inine and "Modern" Medicine As Riane Eisler and others have made clear, two powers have been worshipped throughout human history: Their correspondence to female and male principles is obvious.
There is substantial evidence of goddess-based religions in the past, and evidence that the male, sky-god Judeo-Christian religions are ideological successors to a time when male-based religion wiped out female-based religion. It reflected the power struggles of the day, when herd-tending warrior societies, with their violent, male, sky-god deities conquered the agricultural societies with their feminine, earth-based, life-giving deities.

The mythology eventually reflected who was in charge. A prominent instance of the m ale-based corruption of feminine mythology was the evolution of the snake in symbology.
Snakes were associated with women, healing, and the regeneration of life related to how snakes shed their skin in ancient times. The Adam and Eve story in the Book of Genesis turned feminine mythology upside down. Instead of being the source of life, Eve and the serpent were relegated to inferior, even malevolent, roles as they ruined the paradise arrangement that the Jewish god dictated to humankind.
Asclepius was the Greek god of medicine. The word hygiene derives from the same word that Hygeia does. Hygeia represented the principles of prevention, sanitation, nutrition, and healthy living. Hygeia represented the gentle principles of feminine-oriented medicine.
