You may be hearing and reading a lot about the shift in consciousness, the paradigm shift, and the New Earth and if you haven’t, you’ll be hearing more from me as the weeks and months go by only I am not going to refer to this new consciousness as the “New Earth Movement”; as we are only historically entering into this period now. Perhaps the“New Earth” will stick. Historians will record this new time and eventually name it.
If anyone is familiar with the work of the famous philosopher, linguist, and historian, Michel Foucault, you’ll recall that he worked with the concept of Epistemes.
Foucault taught that the history of science is not a single, linear trajectory towards more knowledge but rather perspectives, conversations, discoveries, and insights that disrupt the current cultural perspective. There are historically only three major Epistemes in over the last 800 years in western European culture.
In order to understand an Episteme, look at it like this: there is the conscious behavior of a culture and the unconscious behavior. The conscious rules of society are rules we know and understand consciously and make decisions according to. We consciously know that our society dictates we publicly wear clothes every day. The unconscious levels that determine how we think, write, and behave are so deeply embedded into our society and belief system we wouldn’t even think of walking out the door to go to a public event naked!
An example of an episteme is the Middle Ages: In the Early Middle Ages what was considered scientific knowledge would be ridiculed by today’s scientists. That the Earth was flat or that the planets revolved around Earth would be dismissed immediately by modern scientists. However, at the time of those teachings with their knowledge, it was considered scientific fact.
The Episteme is the unconscious rule that governs serious scientific conversations in a certain society in a certain time. And this determines what does and does not get taken seriously by the scientific community. We are now entering into a new Episteme in the history of humanity. Remember, it is unconscious. Most of the time people are not even aware of this because it is a set of unconscious rules that govern our behavior.
You may wonder how the Episteme differs from the Paradigm:
1. A paradigm is conscious. Scientists and researchers are conscious of this knowledge and behavior. An Episteme is unconscious because the rules are so deeply ingrained in our thinking.
2. A paradigm happens in a specific field of study, ie. history, linguists, art, etc. whereas the episteme encompasses all facets of culture, history, and science.
3. Paradigms do not live long. There could be several paradigm shifts in a century. According to Foucault, epistemes happen very rarely. There have only been three epistemes in science in western culture in the past 800 years,
Therefore when an episteme changes its impact on science and society is huge. It happens in every discipline at once. Last Summer at the Salon in Krakow, I spoke about Episteme and my views that we are now creating a new Episteme.
This change will impact us tremendously. We don’t even have an accurate vocabulary to discuss many of these changes yet. It will be up to us to create the vocabulary. Those of us on the forefront might refer to ourselves as Lightworkers, bringing the new heightened awareness and unconscious changes to the world.
A few years ago, my friend telling me he saw the trees and felt as if he was looking at them from above and saw them differently, as though it was another dimension, would be called crazy or just dismissed. Only now, as we understand and have experienced other dimensionality, telepathy, remote viewing, telekinesis, spontaneous healings, remote/distance healings, we begin to find these phenomena in scientific magazines and journals. We are witnessing the new Episteme. It’s an exciting time to live in, aware and mindful, as our consciousness and personal awareness will shape the developing Episteme we are entering.
I am very excited for what is next as we enter into new realms of dimensionality, tip the scales of consciousness, and create history! This is an incredible time to be alive!
