Cuatro desarrollos teoricos que, a juicio de Colyvan, auspician el despliegue de (a) y (b), son: (i) la teoria de la gravitacion newtoniana, la cual, prima facie, caracteriza galaxias con cantidades inconsistentes de masa; (ii) la oceanografia descriptiva, que parece postular oceanos de profundidad finita e infinita; (iii) el calculo temprano, con sus cantidades infinitesimales fluctuantes; y (iv) la teoria cuantica de Dirac, que incorpora una tecnica de normalizacion de vectores basada en la integracion de funciones inconsistentes.
