The theories which I use mean that ideas can be analyzed as road maps when the question is in its definition phase and as focal points when the question is in its solution phase. My hypothesis is that by analyzing my ideas from both views I can prove that the question existed in two phases at the same time, both a phase of definition and a phase of solution. This hypothesis proved to be consistently valid and corroborated by the research. (Less)
