Buddhist Thought of the Day on 9/16/07

Is repetitive action virtuous action? If behaviour and conduct are merely repetitive processes then all human relationships actually cease. If I behave mechanically every day, - repeating a certain code of conduct which I have learnt, which I find profitable, or which is pleasant, repeating that over and over again, - my relationship with you ceases, completely - I have become a machine.

- J. Krishnamurti...

A paradigm in the worst sense of the word can be an unthinking behavior or set of behaviors as well as a set of rules or assumptions. See Paradigms Made Simple for an example of the effect of assumed paradigms.
