According to the scientific philosopher Thomas Kuhn, there are two types of science: normal and revolutionary. In the realm of normal science, there are generally accepted methods of defining and solving problems. The world can be categorized and sorted, theories can be refined and upheld, and both classrooms and laboratories can rest assured that their conclusions will consistently verify their hypotheses. And then there is revolutionary science. This is the study by which things unexpected occur, the practice where laws of gravity stem from apples, mathematics describes a cosmic ballet in the heavens, and enormous amounts of energy are released when atoms split in half. The difference between the two sciences, the marker that defines the transition from the normal to the revolutionary, the event that demands a new paradigm, is an anomaly.
