I love archaeology, and I do agree that ancient civilizations did some rather clever stuff that many people don't realize. As far as technology
being widespread, I doubt it. The only technology that they would have had was either whatever they were able to create themselves, or what, if
anyone buys that, aliens or more advanced civilizations visiting, gave them. I doubt there were computers per se. If they were "given" some
technology, I doubt it was widespread. I am not thinking that happened at all, to be honest. But if it did, I don't think aliens gave out lots of
techonology to the people of our planet. Also doesn't make sense. Why get that involved in our past, and now have a policy of non-interaction for
all intents and purposes?
They didn't have power, plastics, factories, or any way at all to create all the modern items we have today. There was no processes to make stuff.
Everything was primarly wood and stone.
Also keep in mind that even the Egyptians, with all their cleverness, still thought a giant dung beetle god was pushing the sun along the sky. There
is a lot of myth, religion, and ritual involved in a rather lot of what drove those civilizations. So you can't simply discount that angle. Much of
what we may think is technological, may have been nothing of the sort.
