These next two figures illustrate the source of conflict among competing paradigms.  If different paradigms handled findings more or less well but within each paradigm  every conceivable finding was handled equally well then net complexity and local  complexity would be the same thing and the following figure would provide the front  to back perspective of the preceding figure. Imagine looking at the above figure from  the left side, with the right side away from you.    But, the above figure does not represent how various paradigms actually handle  various local findings. Each paradigm does not handle every finding equally well;

Unformatted text preview: net complexity is made up of many local phenomena and how the paradigm solves each of them varies. For example, burning down your house is a very simple and fast way to get rid of mice. That approach is extremely good at solving the mouse problem. However, you create a very large problem concerning where you are going to sleep at night. Solutions must be good in their net result. The following figure more correctly illustrates variations in the ability of various paradigms to handle both local complexity and net complexity....
