Term2.png THEORY
The presentation of an idea from a conjectural perspective, which is not yet verified but that if true would explain certain facts or phenomena. As a supposition of ideas explaining something based on general principles, a theory helps to examine behavior and phenomena through different lens. A theory is not necessarily based on facts; in other words, it is not required to be consistent with true descriptions of reality. [1]
