The concept of drastic and dramatic changes is usually a component to modern thinking, both in the ideology of society and biology. However, this is often overlooked in terms of evolution and how various processes take place over time. The defining point which is created between change and staying the same occurs with a tipping point, which begins to rebalance and define various aspects in a different manner. The tipping point is one that is not only responsible for creating a sense of change both biologically and within society. It also becomes important because it creates a dynamic in social analysis while creating an understanding of a specific point which begins to create a change in course and the associations which are a part of the social evolution through time.
The tipping point is defined by a single instance or moment that causes the changes in social behavior to begin moving in another direction. At times, this becomes when a rare disease becomes an epidemic, while others cause the tipping point to be a change in social trends or behaviors.
