Well, since it is scientism (and it's siblings) which feel content to put
words in the mouth of science, it must be scientism, cuz science ain't
said it.

_Technology_ says it, though. After all, technology is the use of things.
If you can't use it, it ain't technology.

IMHO, any valid model of the universe can develop a technology. This is
my main argument against the utility of shamanism.

(Technology is also culture independent....)
