Technology

Technology is the making, modification, usage, and knowledge of tools and techniques in order to solve a problem or perform a specific function. The apparent “magic” of the Mythos is technology beyond normal human understanding. An educated genius is to this magic what a Brazilian scavenger was to an abandoned cancer therapy device in 1987:

A cesium-137 radioactive source was left in an abandoned clinic in the city of Goiânia, capitol of the Brazilian state of Goiás. Scavengers took the massive device, gouged out the iridium window, which allowed high gamma radiation and a beautiful blue light to escape, and sold it to a junk-yard owner. The blue glow of the small cylinder of cesium chloride that was inside the device made it appear very valuable, so it was broken into pieces and used for decorative or magical purposes, including rubbing on the skin. A six-year-old girl ingested some of it. At least 244 persons had measurable contamination of cesium chloride on or in their bodies, with twenty of them being seriously radiated. Ten of the twenty had extensive decontamination and radiation-damage treatment. To date four of these have died.1
