Personally I think were going backwards. There are countless sources on how people built weapons we would never thought that they could build back then.
Then over the centuries different cultures have copied off each other egyptians, sumarians, greeks, etc. you can find each of there types of buildings and statues in the other countries and look at the US we got all types of monuments and buildings we have they look like they came straight from greece and egypt besides the fact we never built a pyramid.
My other reason for this is look at how we clothe ourselves, first nothing then gradually more and more clothing and nothing where going backwards with less and less clothing being worn.
Most of our medicines are based on plants that medicinemen used 6-700 years ago.
We've lost the system of family/groups/clans or saftey in numbers everybody is about "me" and back then everybody was about the society or culture surviving
Alot of stuff we already had in the real old days but we just forgot about it like running water, steam power etc. the roman empire had those then after they fell it was like we got b***h slapped back a few inventions.
The only thing to me that seems to have changed is that we do the same s**t we did then just faster and sometimes in a new way but it serves the same purpose as the orginal idea so we havent done anything that is completly different than what humans did in the past.
There are only a couple of things I see that we have truly learned in the pass few centuries. Bacteria, Self Intrest thats about it.
Mostly everything else can be tied back to older inventions in some way
example : all weapons are just improvements on ones before.
Is it possible to understand the human mind , to transcend the limits of thought........using the human mind ?
