|A 2018 CrashCourse take (Ѻ) on “scientific revolutions” in the context of paradigm change.|
“Both Goethe and Gombrowicz incorporate explanations of structure into their narratives, and both make references to a chemical model of combination. ‘Gombrowicz’s novelty consists in his going one step further and perfecting Goethe’s revolution’: the character of Olek Skuziak allows him to destroy the narratives completely and put himself ‘in the position of speaking to oneself alone’. Regnault writes, on Gombrowicz’s behalf: ‘My pornography is an optic of perversions, but it is also an inversion of the art of writing, a pornology of writing’. When Gombrowicz writes of ‘persevering in obscenity’, the persevering designates the rigours of the structure, which allow one to surpass the charms of obscenity and lead to their expulsion.”
Scientific revolutions are typically measured in decades, starting on a certain year, preceded by build up years, followed by a transformation period, ending with universal acceptance. These epoch periods become known as revolutions, typically only in retrospect, when the topic or subject begins to see third party descriptions of the subject using the term “revolution”. Some of the main scientific revolutions are tabulated below:
The average IQ of the "core" revolutionist, per each scientific revolution, i.e. Copernicus (IQ=190), Lavoisier (IQ=175), Goethe (IQ=230), Clausius (IQ=205), Darwin (IQ=175), Maxwell (IQ=210), and Planck (IQ=190), is IQavg=196.
In categorizational terms, in respect to a "revolutionary genius" pointing system, we note that those with two or more revolution association or roles include:
The IQ average of the 12 revolutionists, with known IQ estimates, having only single revolution association, is: IQAVG = 189.
Revolutions Person IQ Types IQAVG 3 Newton 215 Copernican, Chemical, and Maxwellian }
3 Einstein 220 Thermodynamic, Maxwellian, and Quantum 3 Hooke 195 Copernican, Maxwellian, and Thermodynamic 2 Goethe 230 Darwinian and Goethean
2 Maxwell 210 Thermodynamic and Maxwellian 2 Clausius 205 Thermodynamic and Quantum 2 Galileo 200 Copernican and Thermodynamic 2 Schrodinger 190 Quantum and Thermodynamic 2 Boltzmann 195 Thermodynamic and Quantum 2 Boyle 185 Thermodynamic and Chemical
Related to all of this, Boltzmann, in 1886, famously postulated that the future would look back and define the century the following way:
"The nineteenth century will be remembered as the century of the ‘mechanical vision of nature’ and of ‘Darwin’s evolutionism’."
Which has indeed been the case, with Darwin and Clausius being the two big competing theories with which the modern person uses to understand his or her own existence.
