An attempt to answer the question of Mechanism of Mosaic Split which states "When a mosaic split is a result of the acceptance of only one theory, it can only be a result of inconclusive theory assessment."

Split Due to Inconclusiveness theorem was formulated by Hakob Barseghyan in 2015.1 It is currently accepted by Scientonomy community as the best available theory on the subject.

Question Answered

Split Due to Inconclusiveness theorem (Barseghyan-2015) is an attempt to answer the following question: What happens to a mosaic when two or more similar theories are considered equally acceptable by a scientific community? Under what conditions does a mosaic split occur? What happens to a mosaic when it is transformed into two or more mosaics?

See Mechanism of Mosaic Split for more details.


Split due to inconclusiveness can occur when two mutually incompatible theories are accepted simultaneously by the same community.
