Lynn Margulis, Symbiotic
Planet, A New Look at Evolution,
(New York, Basic Books, 1998).
As a species we cling to the familiar
comforting conformities of the mainstream.
However,convention penetrates more deeply
then we tend to admit. Even if we lack a proper name for and knowledge
of the history of any specific philosophy or thought style, all of
us are embedded in our own safe reality.
Our outlooks shape what we see and how we
know. Any idea we conceive as fact of truth is integrated into an
entire style of thought, of which we are usually unaware.
