    The best explanation I've found is from the book Vernon God Little:

    'Pa-ra-dime, you never heard of the paradigm shift? Example: you see a man with your hand up your Granny's ass. What do you think?'


    'Right. Then you learn a deadly bug crawled up there, and the man has in fact put aside his disgust to save Granny. What do you think now?'

    'Hero.' You can tell he ain't met my Nana.

    'There you go, a paradigm shift. The action doesn't change, the information you use to judge it does.'"
