It may be too much to argue that we could have discovered plate tectonics in the 1950s on the basis of known global earthquake patterns, but it is not too much to affirm that the question of why those patterns had the appearance they did should have been asked. As another example, consider the key discovery of the principle of the transform fault, a topic already mentioned in an earlier guideline.
