***If we all pursued science as it was, there would be no science at all. It is those that opperate at the "fringe" of science that often make the newest and most important discoveries.***

Good scientific procedure is what usually makes for good science. Any one individual could possibly make a significant scientific breakthrough with a Ouji board, but the chances are very slim. On the other hand, following insightful scientific inferences and grabbing onto certain unique principles, a number of scientists were able to make a name for themselves as well as create new science. They might have been on the 'fringe', but they were not usually on the edge of 'quackery'.

Warm regards, Harv
