Caption[edit]

There is a caption that says "Antoine Lavoisier conducting an experiment with combustion generated by amplified sun light". But I wouldn't call it 'amplified', I'd say 'concentrated' or 'focused'. RJFJR (talk) 20:19, 29 January 2014 (UTC)

USE OF TECHNOLOGY BY ANIMALS[edit]

I was reading the information about technology available in Wikipedia. The information did not look comprehensive or complete. I see that most of the animals including birds and pests use technology. The are born with certain knowledge of technology for survival on earth or to teach the human being to explore and develop new technology. Some examples are given below:

1. Birds make different kinds of home using natural resources. 2. Ants and termites are creating empire under the earth and surviving there with their families. 3. Some insects make home using mud and other natural elements like bees, flies etc. 4. Chimpanzees uses stick to catch termite/ants to eat. It is told in the Wikipedia. 5. Gorillas and other apes use tools. It is told in the Wikipedia. 6. many other animals also make home using natural resources. 7. Trees are creating flowers and fruits using a very well defined technology. 8. Natural flow of water, creation of natural resources etc are these result of technology?

Therefore I understand that technology is god's gift. Only human being could invent and improve whatever he could think and see. It is a never ending process while a static function for other animals and plants.

I would appreciate if Wikipedia's team of experts review my thoughts and observations for incorporation so that more people can view it.

Instrumentalism in the 21st century[edit]

GUIDANCE REQUEST: I propose updating the article on “Instrumentalism” to explain how John Dewey and Karl Popper have been reinterpreted, making instrumentalism an active part of the philosophy of science project relevant to inductive reasoning, technology, and pragmatism. Please evaluate my proposal at talk: Instrumentalism, entries 20 and 21.TBR-qed (talk) 19:47, 6 October 2014 (UTC)
