It is important to recognize the limitations of each and every paradigm. Any paradigm which does not make provision for the recognition of its own limitations is inherently an incomplete paradigm which should be regarded with apprehension and suspicion. Any complete paradigm provides those who embody it with guidance for recognizing those predicaments in which the paradigm offers no guidance, or inappropriate guidance. Insecure people often regard their paradigms as offering the means to achieve the security which they lack. They are tragically mislead if their paradigm does not offer any means for recognizing the paradigm's limits as regards providing means to achieve security. Insecure people are likely to cooperate in the generation of collusive games of mutual self deception as regards the powers bestowed upon them by their paradigm and by their cooperative efforts. In the absence of the gift of security they manipulate themselves into having perceptions which are founded upon their collusive cooperations, rather than upon any reality which transcends their limitations as finite creatures. After political, religious, scientific, technocratic, legalistic, and professional leaders have regarded their narrow paradigm as a complete formula for meaningful living. (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in (On Being Yourself, Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
