In their pursuit for an elixir of life and desire to create gold from various mixtures of materials, Taoists became heavily associated with alchemy. [81] Joseph Needham labeled their pursuits as proto-scientific rather than merely pseudoscience. [81] Fairbank and Goldman write that the futile experiments of Chinese alchemists did lead to the discovery of new metal alloys, porcelain types, and dyes. [81] However, Nathan Sivin discounts such a close connection between Taoism and alchemy, which some sinologists have asserted, stating that alchemy was more prevalent in the secular sphere and practiced by laymen. [82] Experimentation with various materials and ingredients in China during the middle period led to the discovery of many ointments, creams, and other mixtures with practical uses.

This process could use vastly lower grade ores than the earlier one, but in the copper case, the resulting metal tended to have a larger percentage of dissolved iron that it picked up while dropping through the slag — typically about 0.3 percent, but sometimes up to 3 percent iron — which made the copper much harder to work. They can get BONUS POINTS for more star names but only if the CONSTELLATION is properly labeled and dots connected.

Cast iron, averaging about 4 percent carbon is hard but quite brittle, so it cannot be worked by hammering. In spite of the absence of anesthesia, complex operations were performed. A sophisticated mathematical astronomy was developed in Mesopotamia as a consequence of a dual fascination with celestial divination and calendrical precision, but as one politically dominant group replaced another in the region of the Tigris and Euphrates River Valleys, the Mesopotamians never incorporated their detailed knowledge of astronomical knowledge into a theory of the structure of the universe.
