The tension between a law and its anomoly

It is the tension between a law, or scientific discovery, or truth, which is vital to progress.

Through this questioning, doubting, we challenge entrenched theories, otherwise a too cavalier
line of thinking may block a future momentous insight/discovery. Such questioning is vital to progress

As Thomas Quine points out, the very eminent Sir Karl Popper was forever inventing hypotheses and then making every effort to falsify them by  ever more inventive,  cunningly devised experiments.

It is the tension between the law/fact/truth and its attempted breaches that powers the engine of truth/law/science/fact.
