Does it always become an exact science? or only in certain circumstances?

Would it be an exact science to everyone? just some people? if just some, anything relevant about them?

does it involve the need for speech? thought? no to both...nothing so exciting

So most people do the task, but do not use the new method/technology?

Will everyone do it? All over the world? no matter their social status? cultural background? education?

How recent is the new method: less than 100 years? less than 10?

Is this technology implemented mechanically? "electrically"? electronically?

How recent is the new method: less than 100 years? the technology has been around for this long, but less than 10? the application is very recent, well within this long

Is this technology implemented mechanically? "electrically"? electronically? none of these
