During the early period of human history, from the ancient civilization until before the industrial revolution, humans’ way of living is in quite simple way for example. Transportation relies on manual walking or running or sometimes they’d be using animals such as horses to carry them around, then communication is through hand writings then being transferred by messengers that travels by land or by animals. All where basic and simple, yet consumes a lot of time, take for an example is their way of communication in which a single letter would consume weeks before getting on the other person. Moreover, during the old times they would rely on fire or lamps in order to work at night, which doesn’t give much of vision plus can be harmful too. Now, we got to experience something different compared back to those times thanks to the discovery of ‘Electricity’, but still why is electricity the most important invention?
Human minds are so creative and curious that one have wondered on what could be the potential on forces on our surrounding? One of the forces that mankind have taken into subject is the electricity. Before, electricity is a concept that mankind hardly believes for it was describe as a certain force that has a capability to power up, much like related to magnetics. They compare it with how the lightning strikes up in the sky during storm, that if we can harness or study such phenomena which were given time by Benjamin Franklin by his experiment on Kite during stormy day. Many scientist and theorist have collectively given their fair share, until Nikolai Tesla have shown the world how electricity works. But what it is for the society to have for this great invention? It was during his time that industrial revolution have taken a great leap in which hundreds of inventions have been studied and discovered, that up until today many still are being studied. Computers, cellular gadgets, light bulbs, electric fan and air conditioner are just few of thousands of devices and equipment that relies on the power of electricity. How does electricity works? The basic idea comes from a single source, may it be gasoline, diesel, natural, chemical, mechanical, or others it will be converted through a machine like generators to produce electrical output.
These inventions that relies on the electricity have pushes man into new era of living. In terms of transportation, we have replaced the horses and donkeys with vehicle that runs with the concept of internal combustion which still relies on electricity, as it requires a battery (chemical source) as part of its starting mechanism. Not just automotive, but also in aviation, navigation, and seafaring since aircraft and ships depends on many technologies and machines that requires massive amount of electricity too. Additionally, using the electricity there have been change on communications as we have known in our history from writing letters through hand, we jumped into paper making machines for fast printing, then change into the telephone and now we got on our hands the gadgets like cellular phone and gadgets all that are wireless and fast connection. Then in the field of medicine, we get to enjoy the privilege of using advance medical machines to examine our condition and give quick findings so doctors can give proper advice and medication Also, in operations and other extensive part of medication most of those are depending on electricity, that is why they put up back-up generator just in case something happened with their original power source.
Why electricity is the most important invention? Simply because of this invention, a lot of discovery and invention towards other field of learning have been unlocked and achieved. All of which imposes to improve human health, learning and living. That’s why we need to maximize our usage of electricity and make sure that as time goes by no amount of electricity is getting wasted just because human’s irresponsibility.
