Yes. My dad did. Admittedly it wasn't so good an idea, but all was well in the end.
Yes, I do think it was comprehensible. When Neanderthals first met man, the range of technological differences was massive. What happened?
Neanderthals adopted our tools and went their merry way onward. Humanity eventually wiped them out though.
When the first long range planes flew over pacific islanders who never saw such things, they did not think them gods nor special. They tried to build
a plane themselves, failed, waited for their return, then got the technology themselves.
Quite clearly, we can comprehend it.

Something would survive. Anything would. Not just pyramids and other stuff. And we know pyramids were made by men and that our evolution is perfectly
natural. That's why there's over half a dozen human evolutions before us. Most of which we drove into extinction ourselves.

Clearly not. We needed no jump start. 50,000 years ago WE jump started Neanderthals. Did not help them. They went extinct. There is clear mathematical
contingency in our development of civilization.

If they don't think like us, we would not have build things they told us to, because would not comprehend it. This is evident by the fact that the
most out-there religions never succeed nor build huge monuments. They fall to the dust. Only the most generic religions succeed.

We were able to cut rocks and build going back to before our species existed. The first species to do so was over 2 million years ago. Judging from
their lack of advancement beyond that, they did that themselves. Civilizations built bigger the more people and strength they got. No aliens are
needed. That's my argument. They are not needed. SO why does the theory persist?

Dinosaurs died because of many reasons. But the fact is that they were beginning to evolve into mammals themselves. fur (feathers), warm blooded,
bigger brains. No need to clean the slate. The extinction did not clear the way for mammals. Mammals were already picking up on the evolutionary stage
around the world, with mammals as large as ponies out near Australia that ate dinosaurs. And after the extinction, dinosaurs got smarter via birds.
The Crow is the 3rd smartest animal on Earth. More signs to no need to clean the slate.
Harvest souls? Have you seen the Sun? Not only are souls unobservable if they even exist, but such energy would be lost to the Earth. That's barely
even 1% of the energy of 1% of the sun. If you want energy, Suck up the Sun. Build a dyson sphere. Clearly if you have the power to manipulate entire
ecosystems you can do that too.
What technology? Where's the stainless steel remains? The vaults underground? The radiant energy of nuclear power, so many more. The only remains are
or bones, which they themselves show no modification done to other than evolution.
Only other life forms? We already know of at least 3 other worlds, all in the same solar system, that could sustain life. Not to mention our own solar
system that could sustain life. Shall I list them? Europe, Titan, Mars, Venus, just to name a few where life could scratch off a living. The chances
that we are the only other intelligence is so remotely low it's a joke.
Bacteria? Hell that's the only thing that makes sense. From a purely evolutionary perspective, we're the only species with exponential growth.
You're more likely to find linear-advancing aliens with Neanderthal intelligence than something like us. But you'd still have proof of observation.
Just think. How much space junk have we left on Mars and Venus and our own planet? Something would be there.
Monuments? Not likely. You want a monument, you write it down. Ideas last longer than buildings.
If they are still here, why risk it. Micro cameras, or large human robots would work better.
