Thanks Crowsfoot. (by the way, I can't see your crowsfeet at all. Maybe it's your shoes.)

A crowsfoot is the V shaped mark carpenters make. Doesn't mean smiling eyes.

I believe an old show called, "Connections" via PBS. This fella would explain that step by step how we got here from a science view. Things like metallurgy, what it took to do all that. Or maybe use the example of the telegraph came about because of electricity, etc., but the battery was already known for ages and used for what?
What electrical device was there in ancient Egypt? How did ancient man know about "flint knocking or use flint, etc.. -----Willy Happy
