Human beings experience the feeling of safety when they assume that they are in possession of sufficient pieces of information with which they are able to foretell the future, which they are then no longer afraid of. The ways of gathering and interpreting the data of “reality” were placed in the hands of “objective” science some time ago. However, following the developmental course of scientific concepts shows that modern science, as well as pre-modern thought preceding it, had to invent – rather than discover – theories, systems, within the framework of which the gathered data acquired meaning and predictability. Examples of interpreting gravity, the dual wave-particle character of light and the various models of atom confuse readers used to unambiguous interpretations they acquired during the course of their education. Quantum physics has pointed out numerous problems, including the fact that the very research itself disturbs the system being researched, thus leading to the principle of indeterminacy – due to the perceptive characteristics of our mind we can perceive only that which we (re)cognise, meaning that science, in fact, researches only within its self-accessible categories. Exceptional individuals with their divergent thinking, on the other hand, do the same thing as artists do – they change perspective, they revolutionise the available categories and offer a novel conception of the world, at the same time producing faith in the same.
