Science and technology advance as the human knowledge increases. Dating back from the start of civilization dated 12,000 years ago, science and technology has changed very significant. 

Humans have the capacity to remember a particular idea, method, processing and mechanisms to be preserved for the future generations. Along with that, human thinking has a very unique capacity to innovate and transform former ideas. We are also capable of discovering probability through testing and proving. Humans also have the capacity to utilize the resources available in the surroundings, converting them into something useful or beneficial.

There are volumes written about the change in technology at the turn of the century! 

The birth of modern computing is considered to have happened around this time period, as well as Alexander Graham Bell's invention of the telephone. 

After the turn of the century modern medicine began to take great leaps with discoveries such as the Polio vaccine. 

Essentially every modern convenience we enjoy today stems from the 20th century. That is the time that technology truly took root in people's daily lives.
