Since as long as we can remember, technology has evolved and as a result made our lives easier and more intelligent. From the days of cavemen and fire to artificial intelligence (AI) and predictive behavior, technology has shaped the way in which we do life.
One might say that fire is not technology, but I would argue the fact that fire changed how we keep warm, cook our food, purify water, provide light, use as a defense mechanism, shaping metal and glass into predetermined shapes, and the list goes on and on. Where would we be without fire? My point is that without fire, we would get sick from consuming raw foods, die from dysentery and many other parasites or diseases that exist in unclean water.
