Will Bigfoot Cause A Paradigm Shift?



Will Bigfoot Cause A Paradigm Shift?
Extra Large Footprints To A More Enlightened World
By Dorraine Fisher


It’s possible I romanticize Bigfoot way too much. Maybe I read way too much into them. But the reason I do that is because I think they’re a huge deal...in changing the way people think and in the course of human evolution and the way we view our world.

And yes, this sounds pretty cheesy, but I’ll tell you why I think this way.

I think we humans are on our way toward an enormous shift in the way we think and perceive everything around us. I think our minds are evolving in many ways. And examining all things metaphysical and paranormal is a big part of that shift. It’s about believing in possibilities. Imagining that things we can’t actually see or put our hands on still may exist. That the definition of something being real is a little different than we thought.

I think those who believe in the paranormal or metaphysical have had some kind of experience in that sense, are much further ahead in this evolution. They’re either well able to imagine there is a whole world of existence beyond what they can see and touch, or they don’t have to imagine it because they’ve actually experienced it. But either way, their minds are open, and that’s what it takes to advance to the next level.

Last night, I started to work on an article countering a skeptic’s reasons why bigfoot probably doesn’t exist. And, as I was trying to formulate my arguments and articulate them well, it suddenly occurred to me that it simply didn’t matter. Whatever I said would either be met with agreement or opposition. And this depends on the personal paradigms of the reader. It didn’t matter what I said or how I said it. People will either believe or they won’t. My words won’t change this. And here’s why.

People have ALWAYS already made up their minds...from the beginning of humanity. And neuroscience says that one of the biggest flaws in the human mind is, if we think we already know something, we won’t look at any other information about it. We’ll just stop right there and not move any further forward. And that’s where our evolution stops too. We want to believe we’re right. We need to believe it. And we’ll actively look ONLY for evidence that supports what we already believe. And we’ll dismiss all other ideas.

We see this all the time in politics and religion and even in science. People will say another’s religious beliefs are wrong because they’re different, or they’ll only watch news stations that tell the news in a way that supports what they already believe about the world. Or they’ll reject new ideas simply because the scientific community denies there’s enough evidence to support them. So many minds are closed in this very way.

I think people are often afraid to change their minds. Afraid to go rogue and think for themselves. Afraid to stray away from authorities they believe have all the answers. Afraid to imagine it all might be different than they’ve always believed. I guess it’s like admitting they were wrong before. And wrong is somehow the worst thing we can be, we think. So people will stick to their current construct, even if it’s outdated or there’s simply no evidence left to support it. But it’s simply too much trouble to change the values we’ve always had and built our lives around, or to rewrite every chapter in the book. Even if we really should.

So, that’s why I say that people who aspire to or believe in things paranormal or metaphysical or just plain elusive have a distinct advantage. Maybe they’ve always been open to new things, or better yet, maybe they’ve been made to believe something different than they did before through an experience. So the pathway has been opened in their minds. And that pathway is a much bigger deal than we often realize.

But this is how we all should aspire to be.

Because as long as we have this attitude that we already know the “big truth,” and there’s nothing new we can learn, we’ve already failed as a species. How can we really call ourselves intelligent if we can’t wrap our minds around the idea that our own ideas about a lot of things may be flat-out wrong? How can we truly evolve as an intelligent being if we can’t challenge the very thoughts that are sitting in our heads holding us down right this minute?

This is called being stuck. And in order to move forward and become the humans we were all meant to be, we have to get unstuck.

But can we do that?

Some of us can. Some of us who’ve already accepted the strange, the unknown, and the not-quite-physical as part of their personal reality.
