I think there were isolated pockets of people who invented many things we consider modern technology that just never became mainstream knowledge way
before those who got credit for them in modern times. Humans then we're just as capable of gaining knowledge and intelligence as a modern human. They
just lacked the ability to communicate and share knowledge for collaboration as we can now.
There were certainly some isolated civilizations who invented things that were forgot en and rediscovered.
Just watching a geyser blow could spawn the thoughts needed to come up with a crude steam rocket. Humans back then could put two and two together just
as we do.
It is our ability to now share, store and teach knowledge that is a lowing us to evolve our tech so fast.
I believe once we are able to create AI our technology will once again explode with new inventions created by our AI that never has to sleep or stop
working and is only limited by how much hardware we provide it to dream of improvements and new inventions.
