Thomas Kuhn, who defined and popularized the concept of a Paradigm Shift, stated that "awareness is prerequisite to all acceptable changes of theory." It all begins in the mind of the person. What we perceive, whether normal or metanormal, conscious or unconscious, are subject to the limitations and distortions produced by our inherited and socially conditional nature. However, we are not restricted by this for we can change.

A Paradigm Shift is a change from one way of thinking to another. It's a revolution, a transformation, a sort of metamorphosis. It doesn't just happen... it is driven by agents of change. As we shift from a mechanistic, manufacturing, industrial society to an organic, service based, information centered society, technology, social justice and connectivity will be at the forefront.

Change, although difficult, is inevitable and the only true constant. For millions of years we have been evolving and will continue to do so. Human Beings resist change; however, the process has been set in motion long ago and we will continue to co-create our own experience. We are moving at an accelerated rate of speed and our state of consciousness is transforming and transcending.

In the spirit of “ideas worth spreading,” TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share ideas through inspiring talks and conversations with each other.
