The moving paradigm in science

In philosophy, a paradigm is a coherent system of models and theories that form a frame of mind with wich to analyze reality. The philosopher of science Thomas Kuhn described the progressive development of knowledge in the form of paradigms. When applying the scientific method, observations keep coming up that do not fit into the existing models or paradigms (anomalies). For some time it is possible to fit in the new observation trough small adjustments to a model, but sometimes these accumulated adjustments put more and more stress on a model; the model is no longer beautiful, but has many exceptions or special situations.
At such times, a new set of theories can arise, a new paradigm, that can explain in a different way all the observations known until then. A group of scientist will form around the new theory who adhere to the new theory, but at the same time, among other scientist, there wil be resistance to this change; this latter group will continue to defend the old theory. When the new theory proves successful and gains more and more support, it is referred to as a paradigm shift.

The difference between applied research and fundamental research

In applied research, existing scientific knowledge is applied to analyzing and solving practical problems.
Fundamental research starts with a knowledge problem of science and is aimed at generating new scientific knowledge.

Using the full brain potencial

Scientists only make use of there rational and material faculties in their method of research, but do not use of their affective and spiritual faculties. That means scientists aren’t using their full brain potencial!

What are those four different abilities?

Rational abilities: rational, logical and analytical thinking
Material abilities: the creation and use of technology, such as e.g. measuring equipment that scientist can use in their research methods
Affective abilities: spatial feeling (happerceptive sensitivity) and touching (psycho-tactiele-contact)
Spiritual abilities: meditation, contemplation and introspection

Because I have optimally developed and seamlessy intertwined my affective-, spiritual-, rational- and material abilities, I have been using my full brain potencial for 34 years.

The Happerceptive Participartory Observation (HPO)

The scientific method is a systematic way of acquiring knowledge, based on observations, measurements, predictions, experiments, verification and falsification.
The current research methods used by the academic world are not suitable for conducting research into the essence of human affectivity and the functioning of the Human Spirit.

In my research method I have seamlessy intertwined conscious spatial feeling, touch, meditation, comtemplation and introspection with rational, logical en analytical thinking. I don’t use technology.

By connecting my Happerceptive Sensitive ability from Haptonomy with the reserach method of cultural anthropology – the participant observation – a unique innovative method of research has emerged: the Happerceptive Participatory Observation (HPO).
Through this unique and innovative method of research, I have been able to feel step by step the workings and laws of the Human Spirit and thereby further advance the science of Affectivity.

This optimal Happerceptive Sensitivity can be developed (again) in a completely natural way for everyone who chooses to do so by meditating and contemplating often alone in nature, so that the nervous system naturally becomes so healthy and sensitive that people can concious feel spatially, with or without tactile contact.
