The second dimension of the structure is the molarity of the paradigmatic context.  Essentially the same figure can be used to characterize each of what has come to be  known as the scientific disciplines. Only the molarity (and as we will subsequently  see, the time scale) of the figure changes. If we represent some arbitrary change in  the environment with a heavy line, then    would show the environment changing from a baseline (one set of  relationships, contingencies or rules) to an altered state or some different  set of contingencies, then subsequently returning to the original baseline  state.  We can add the change in some arbitrary dependent variable to this  diagram.    The dependent variable is to be seen as initially in some equilibrium with the  environment. The environment then changes and the dependent variable re- equilibriates to the changed environmental state. As can be seen, this adaptation
