Science Development

Its development from the Age of the Prehistoric Generation to Alpha

in prehistoric times, science was not structured systematically as it is now. So, what people in those days knew was that they were simply observing and solving problems instinctively based on need. However, it is proven that scientific activities have been carried out since that time with the discovery of amazing sites. Starting from the scribbles on the walls of the cave depicting observations of time and seasons, to stone buildings that are extraordinarily majestic.

For example, the establishment of the Stonehenge site from 2,500 BC in Salisbury Plain, England. This site is an arrangement of large stones as high as 4 meters that form certain patterns of shape. It is believed this site shows extraordinary mathematical intelligence because it requires the application of the Pythagorean theory which at that time did not exist.

If in Indonesia itself there is also the discovery of the Borobudur Temple from the 9th century, where there is no scientific term. The stone building is 42 meters high with 55,000 cubic meters of stones arranged into 10 levels of the temple. At that time there were no sophisticated tools like today, guys. So it must be a lot of brainstorming to cut the stone and arrange the heavy stone into the largest temple building in the world according to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

Relics from ancient times are indeed a reflection of how at first science or can be called practical science was used for religious purposes. So, basic human needs such as the need to have a relationship with God became the basis for the emergence of science. Such as Stonehenge as a burial place and religious pilgrimage destination, and Borobudur Temple as a Buddhist temple or house of worship. Along with the times, its use is increasingly widespread and is intended to facilitate human life. Well, as people who have lived in modern times, Zenius friends, don’t want to lose to our predecessors in using science in your daily life so that we can continue to develop for the common good.
