It might be, that social groups in any sector of society [be they educational fields, social groups, professional or other associations] might unknowingly be stifling growth and development of their own kind, culturally, economically, technologically and ultimately their overall knowledge maturity.
This clip from a television programme in the United Kingdom offers a useful explanation as to just how a society's culture can influence its technological development and furthermore its knowledge development.
There may be lessons for the future in this example. Those social groups that are willing to experience the discomfort of change, those that actively facilitate or enable shifts in cultural consciousness could potentially be sowing the seeds for further technological and ultimately knowledge development.
