the edge of their paradigm

in the comments on a post about midwives and doulas ashes says

they may be on the edge of their paradigm, but it’s still the old paradigm.

my (edited for !!!) response:

yes. its like…i meet and read these midwives and in so many ways they and i have similar ideas and visions of what birth is…and so i think oh we are on the same page. but actually we are on different sides of the structure. they are on the inside. standing next to the door or the window…looking out and describing the wildflowers they see through the window. i am outside. dancing in the field of wildflowers. looking at them standing inside structure. trying to figure if they like wildflowers so much…why dont they come outside?
