History of Technology and The Market
Throughout civilization man has changed or evolved in various ways, which has allowed him to progress to new steps in advancement. By all means in the past man was barbaric like the animals and yet somehow he overcame nature and become one with his own collective thought and became immersed in his own curiosity that eventually self composed changes came in effect.
What is this perpetual inclination within man, which causes him to question all things that are until they have become explained? Perhaps something within the brain from the beginning was given to facilitate man to these progressions. It is said, "I think therefore I am." And thus this is the cornerstone that became the capstone of civilization.
To dream is to imagine and to imagine is to create and to create is to invent and to invent is to with some great possibility cause a major change in a civilization both primitive and complex. The root of creativity is art, the imaginative abstract concept of creating that, which has yet to be. Within the nature of man is the ability to appreciate and enjoy art and to relate himself to art.
I believe the basis of technology is art, I believe that art has always been and always will be and that art is what separates man from the animal and from nature. Alongside technologies both primitive and advanced is the timeline of art, the railroad of arts which has given a free means of travel to the train of technology. One of the greatest artists Leonardo Divinci was not only an artist but also an inventor. He saw that art and technology are one. He understood that when perfection in art comes is when art perfects society instead of society perfecting art.
It is well observed that each civilization we have had in the past attempted to some degree to progress in the art of technology. In many cases they succeeded in small ways, yet the age of Electro-technology was not reached until our current civilization. True technology is that which is in the imitation of life itself, that which can exist and possess independent locomotion and performing capabilities. I intend to provide a view, which will educate the common man to the importance of technology, and the inevitability of it's continuing evolution.
It is said that man uses only 10% of his brain, some theorize that there are extra sensory perceptive abilities of the homo-sapien mind. These abilities may allow a collective connection of shared ideas and thought. Perhaps at one point it existed and at another point was cut off. Perhaps it is a subconscious desire to become one with each other. The greatest fear of man is to be alone, for we are a social species.
Without technology past civilizations developed on their own and individually, and eventually they all fell. Even the greatest and most powerful, the Roman Empire. The empire fell eventually as it did not reach that point which would cause it to develop the technological arts. It evolved and succeeded in every other way and even inventing many devices which would help their society but never reaching the human hidden goal of technology.
Finally in our civilization we have unearthed and created the abilities to progress technologically. And within a 100 years the world has transmogrified in amazing ways. Ways, which can only be described in the ancient times as "magical" or
