It is not lost. We simply have a best guess as to how they did it. Men with enough time and care have replicated what we think they did. I posted a
video of just such.
If you paint the color blue and someone else paints the color blue, and for 2000 years no one ever paints the color blue, that doesn't mean we forgot
how to paint the color blue. We simply have a best guess of what painting the color blue was like, and we can replicate that technology by crushing
some berries and creating something similar.
What you are doing is saying that because for 2000 years nobody every crushed berries to paint the color blue, we therefore are missing the part where
mankind can travel across the planet rapidly and teach this technology to everyone, when the far more probable reality is that two different tribes on
two different continents probably discovered that blue berries produce blue paint, entirely on their own.
