A key tension in main stream science has long been the conflict between specialists and the generalists and multidisciplinarians.� The specialist�s motto might be, �The devil is in the details.�� Deductive reasoning is their specialty and reductionist principles often guide their investigations, in which breaking down phenomena into their most basic components is the goal.� The generalist�s motto might be, �I seem to see a pattern here.� �Generalists often use inductive reasoning and tend to think holistically, usually in terms of systems, and they recognize emergent properties arising from higher levels of systems complexity, which can be something new and not necessarily inherent in lower levels of complexity or predictable by analyzing those lower levels. �New hypotheses often come from generalists and their inductive reasoning, and the best of them usually have some flash of insight that leads them to their breakthroughs, which is called intuition or the Creative Moment.� I found that it is a close cousin to psychic ability, if not the same thing.� Speciali sts are often those on the ground, getting their hands dirty and doing the detailed work that forms the bedrock of scientific practice.� Without their efforts, science as we know it would not exist.� However, mainstream science has long suffered from the tunnel vision that overspecialization encourages, and R.

Mass extinction events may be the result of multiple ecosystem stresses that reach the level where the ecosystem unravels.� Other than the meteor impact that destroyed the dinosaurs, the rest of the mass extinctions seem to have multiple contributing causes, and each one ultimately had an energy impact on life processes.� The processes can be complex and scientists are only beginning to understand them.� This essay will survey mass extinction events and their aftermaths in some detail, as they were critical junctures in the journey of life on Earth.
