TBTM20061002

"The propositions describing this world-picture might be part of a kind of mythology. And their role is like that of rules of a game; and the game can be learned purely practically, without learning any explicit rules...
The mythology may change back into a state of flux, the river-bed of thoughts may shift. But I distinguish between the movement of the waters on the river-bed and the shift of the bed itself; though there is not a sharp division of the one from the other."
(LW)


I think that what has happened since the '60s is a shift in the river-bed, in Christian mythological terms. See here for a bit more.
