You need three heading styles (like heading1, heading2 and heading3), one for "history", other for "technology" and the last for "it's fun". Then, go to Tools -> Outline Numbering; in the "numbering" tab, put each style in its level (heading1 in level one...) and select for each level the numbering style you want (for "technology", set "show sublevels" to 2)
That's all

So, you are talking about numbered list, and not outline numbering?
