***So my explanation as to why conceptual schemes change is bifold. First, not all of them change; schemes that are perfectly self-consistent, such as the scheme for adding apples, will never change. Second, schemes that embody a subtle paradox will only last as long as the paradox remain undetected.***

If our conceptual schemes contain a paradox, that means that whatever conclusions about the world that we construct from such a paradoxial scheme is bound to have discrepancies. This is my point with Dick. He uses an older conceptual scheme of mathematical statements, and as a result his conclusions contain a paradox. The paradox is that post-1960's physics is no where to be seen in his conclusions! This is answer has a simple answer: his conceptual scheme is based on 1960's math!!
