TINKERING With The World

TECHNI(CAL)   TeeQOON    Tahf-Koof-Vav-Noon
ROOTS: TECHNOLOGY is credited to the Greek tekhne (art, skill); the alleged IE “root” is teks (to weave...fabricate).

TaKH is a stitch, figuring perhaps in the fabric of (S)TITCH.  The sound and sense of all things TECH (TECHNOLOGICAL) appear in Hebrew words of careful craft, after some minor tinkering or reverse engineering.
תקן TaQaiN is to make straight, repair or TINKER (Ecclesiastes 1:15; 7:13). To TINKER (repair - TKN à TNK) has no known origin, not unusual for a word coming from a metathesis of the Edenic.
The  קן QahN, nest, is nature’s drawing board, preparing the young for maturity
(Deuteronomy 22:6). כון KOON is prepared (Ezekiel 28:13),  established (Psalm 9:8).

תכונה T'KHOONaH means arrangement, order, structure, preparation or astronomy. תכן TaKHaN is to regulate, measure, formulate a program (II Kings 12:12; Isaiah 40:2, 3).  תכן ToaKHeN is measurement or content (Exodus 5:18).   תכניתTaKHNeeYT is a measurement, plan, program or TECHNIQUE. The ARCHITECT'S plan is the sense in Ezekiel 43:10.
The start-up nation of Israel is performing the key Jewish mission of  עולם  תיקן TeeYQOON [O]aLahM, repairing the word, tinkering with Creation … especially with new technologies to greatly improve areas like health and hunger.

BRANCHES:   תחם TaK[H]aM is to set limits. The IE “root” makes the TECHNICIAN a cognate of the DACHSHUND. Other cognates listed at IE “root” teks are CONTEXT, PRETEXT, SUBTLE, TECHNICAL, TECTONIC, TILLER, and TOIL.  TOKEN may link up with the  ת-כ-ן  Tahf-Khaf-Noon terms above, and with the later דגם DeGeM, model, example.

TEXTILE is an extension of TEXT. Slovak weaning is tkat’.  The Greek tekton (carpenter, builder) does not weave, but does all the planning and measuring (and repairing) seen in the Hebrew etymons above.  Modern Greek tehni (art) recalls the original  Greek “skill” sense of things TECHNICAL. TINKERING with nature in the lab appears in words meaning “artificial:” Finnish keinotekoinen, Modern Greek technitos’ and Japanese jinkootekina.  German Technik,  engineering, is one of the many hundreds of borrowings of this word. 
Txukun(du) is to fix in Basque, the language with "no known affinities."

Fixed, established and to fix, revise in Chinese are both  ding X136,7; the two sound-alike words are an M132  of  תקן TaQaiN  and  תכונה  T'KHOONaH.
The Edenic Taph-Koof-Noon themes of setting straight, establishing and composing soon were used in the making of many a   תקנה TaQaNaH (edict,ordinance and ruling.)  This appeared in Akkadian taqānu (well ordered) and the fully-shifted Greek dogma (regulation), which gave English DOGMA. The AHD traces DOGMA to Greek dokein, to seem, think (see “ORTHODOX.”) 

The scholars are playing games again. The Greek -ein verbal ending does not explain the nasal in DOGMA.  And DOGMATIC beliefs are about blind, arrogant belief in established edicts, without “thinking.”
In Maya/Quiche taqanik is to command or a command.
