CHANGEMENT DE PARADIGME : CHANGEMENT DE VÉRITÉ, par El JEm. Billet invité.
La première partie a été publiée ici. Chaque humain construit sa propre représentation du monde, décrivant sa nature et son fonctionnement, ce qui lui permet de lui donner une certaine cohérence et de savoir comment se comporter. Cette représentation se construit à partir de sa culture, de ses expériences, de son entourage, etc. Elle guide son imagination et ses décisions, comme la boussole guide le voyageur. Or il y a confusion entre représentation et réalité, ce qui génère des désaccords entre humains, chacun croyant détenir la vérité. Ceci est aggravé par le fait que la représentation influence la perception : nous percevons surtout ce que nous croyons. Par exemple : la Terre est plate. Avec le temps, quelques observateurs plus curieux que d’autres remarquent ces détails. Nous percevons surtout ce que nous croyons.
