Science is formation of knowledge, especially newer kind of knowledge. Science has to do with observation, collation of facts and details, gathering of information and experimentation of materials gathered to see if there are genuine or conform to the known laws of the universe. Science involves creating the channels for actualization of knowledge that is bringing knowledge to the service of man.
Engineering has to do with designing of form and material. Engineering helps on designing products after processing scientific knowledge. It also helps in interpreting and implementing scientific knowledge.
Technology means application of scientific knowledge for the service of man and time. It means utilization of knowledge. Technology helps in the dissemination, transfer and imbibing of functional knowledge. It helps in applying the knowledge necessary for mass production-large scale production for functional and sustainable development.
As a matter of fact, there is no clear-cut distinction between science, engineering and technology. They are intricately interwoven. They go hand in hand. A scientist-originator of knowledge can be an engineering-designer and also a technologist-applier of knowledge.
You see Science, Engineering and Technology make up the point or level of socialization of man or time, which is civilization – the level of man’s awareness of himself and the world around him. Civilization means man’s embankment on the journey of Science, Engineering and Technology (SET).
Civilization started when man began to make fire-then implements for hunting like bow and arrow spear, etc, then growing of crops-agriculture. Agriculture held sway for a very long time-till the industrial age (through industrial revolution) took over. Man then moved from the primary to the secondary level of production – Through the industrial age man began making conveniences for the use and improvement of life, such as Steam Engines, printing press, etc.
Every age determines the level/point or the sophistication of man – civilization. Civilization is defined as the prevalence of an order –an order taking charge of the preceding ones.
To work in line with civilization one ought to think and plan with the highest level of imagination. The people with the genius’ orientation determine civilization. Genius means a rare person with rare power – someone of high imagination, great inventive capacity. A man of wonderful skill and power. The man who can do at ease what others find difficult or rather impossible to do.
These geniuses help as matter of fact to determine civilization – the level and its sophistication. Genius concerns itself with the provision of knowledge (Science) creates the designs and has the capacity to apply knowledge. The genius is a student, master ad applier of knowledge – nature.
Science, Engineering and Technology (SET) create, build and sustain civilization. SET helps to turn man inward at every point of time. Now the world has moved from Agriculture-Industrial-Information!
Now, what is next? What is the ultimate and consummate for man?
From the information age, man will transit to the ENLIGHTENMENT – LIGHT AGE.
The ultimate and the consummate for man. Man is made to approach the speed of light-to operate in a flash. This is the present evolution of man – to approach the sun-likeness-to operate and live in semblance. This is the last age of man.
A time is coming that man may not need physical means of transport. He will develop a form so that he can always beat the laws of gravity. He will get things done or achieved in flash. This is the last state or age of man. Man will live in galaxy-the Milky Way. We are already at the dawn of this age. It is more esoteric, ethereal, approaching God’s kindness by man.
“The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion, which stands at the cradle of true art and true science.” – Albert Einstein
