Zat, thanks for the great read and tying in history.
“One of the reasons that it’s hard to predict paradigm shifts in the future is because, by definition, if something has never been done before, it’s incompatible with the current reality”.
It’s like a boat that you can see out on the horizon. If you have never seen a boat out there before you won’t be looking for it. You won’t think it’s real.
Even if you do wake up and see it as real, it’s too far away to interrupt your usual way of doing life. You can explain it away for now.
It’s like you say, “incompatible with the current reality”.
