Where does disruption come from?
Arguably, the most disruptive piece of thinking of the Enlightenment was when the scientific community rethought the relationship between the earth and the heavens. To the pre-Enlightenment mind, the distinction between the terrestrial and celestial was absolute and only Jesus Christ and fire could transition between them. This distinction meant that as one ascended towards the heavens, the laws of physics themselves changed. For example, in the earthly world, objects travelled in straight lines before grinding to a halt, whereas in the heavenly world things would go around in perfect circles for eternity.
