Technology and Scientific Ideas.

    Technology and Scientific Ideas.
==========
The technological problems have great influence on scientific ideas.
For example:
a) in Maxwell's time,  technology was mechanical and therefore
  Maxwell explained his EM theory using mechanical toys:
  balls, hooks, springs . . .  etc.

b) in the last years of  the19 century many physicists were busy with
problem of simultaneous measurement  of time.
Therefore Einstein's SRT was begun with this simultaneous problem,
and this way ( until today) lead to many speculations about SRT.
( one train / rocket -  other train / rocket )

c) in the time where the big bang was entered in cosmology scientists
were amazed by great nuclear forces therefore using high pressure / density
  ( which was created by gravity masses - the weakest in nature)
they invented big bang which says nothing about
where did masses come from
( big bang created singularity,  singularity created big bang )
This theory is from the Alice's Wonderland.

I'm not really following the spectrum here. Are you trying to say that technology and ideas are building blocks feeding off of one another? A plumber will think of the world in terms of water pipes and plumbing. A gardener will think of the world in terms of plants, landscaping, and soil. A truck driver will think of the world in terms of trucking. A chemist sees the world in terms of molecules. A painter notices color. A mathematician in terms of numbers. An economist in markets. A beekeeper in bees and colonies. A computer gamer in terms of strategy. A soldier in terms of war. People tackle problems in terms of what they know.

Correct.
For example
Maxwell knew much about mechanics  but a little about structure of EM waves
Therefore he used mechanical models / terms

etc . . . etc . . .
