There's a lot of ancient technology that has been lost and then found again in more recent times long after the "modern" versions were made. The Baghdad battery is a pretty good one. A battery that's over 2100 years old, lost to time then rediscovered in the 1930s. Something that wouldn't be made again until the 1790s. No one actually knows what the Baghdad battery was used for, but the theory is electroplating, which Mythbusters proved would be possible. Just imagine how far ahead we'd be now if this kind of tech hadn't been lost and instead had been improved. We might even have laptops and phones now that would last several weeks on a full charge, or even an EV with a range of over 5000 miles on a full charge.

yeah, each generation seems to be a bit arrogant about its own pinnacle of knowledge (viewed through a fish eye lens focused on its current time, so to speak).

One thing I always found fascinating is the more what I guess are considered fringe or pseudo by the mainstream scientific community, but I always find the ideas some put forth about lost civilizations where it was possible for very advanced civilization with advanced technology to have existed, but was just so long ago, wiped out by cosmic/climatic calamities and we all started over.

 

Anyway, whenever they discover stuff like this, makes me think of that.

The more unexplainable things they find dated far older than expected, the more likely they are to admit that was the case. There is already enough out there that I think we are definitely living in a reboot.
