Although now small and marginal, they will surely grow, along with their challenges to mainstream science.There will be problems to be resolved, as established science loses its monopoly of accredited status in the provision of knowledge and advice.  But the challenge should be productive of new thinking and new practices, enriching science in many ways as the two streams interact.
