Life is all about perceptions. Amongst all other faculties of the brain, I believe our perceptions take a long time to change. We are the creations of our perceptions. The ability to discern change is perhaps what differentiates us from other beings on the planet or so we think! A perception after all …
To challenge the known paradigm is to recognise that change can exist. Progress in thought can only take place when new thoughts replace the old ones. This challenges tradition and custom at the cost of development or vice versa.
Human beings, I believe are the same all over the planet, divided only by percept or a series of them over periods of time.
Marketing, advertising, media, politics, warfare, name it, all derive or ride on selling or creating a perception. Religion too!
