learnt how to make fire using the ancient technique of spinning a stick
on a board. It was a slow process that got started when reflecting on what I knew about how things are made.
Pushing buttons and using all sorts of wireless devices on a daily basis, I have no idea where to get started to make a wire or a plastic knob, let alone a signal-carrying microwave.
After some research I settled on trying to master the mother of all technologies: fire making.
I am using the bow-drill technique.
