Its like us using the wheel and only making the penny farthing bicycle and then ceasing to use the technology.
Again I'll reference Roman concrete, this is a provable, demonstrated example of how a "super advanced technology" can be lost, in this case the
understanding of it completely vanished in 400AD and wasn't redicovered until over 1300 years later. It simply is not the case that technology gets
passed down from generation to generation, often cultures feel technology is power and they hold it as a closely guarded secret among the "elite"
for fear that other cultures will catch up or surpass them in development. A modern example on a smaller scale is the Stradivarius voilin, the
technology for making them was a closely held family secret that died with the family and makers have been trying ever since to match the quality
(without much success). In that case they're unable to even reverse engineer from existing examples.

OP... Yeah but then who did tell them how to use vibration sounds or the technology behind all those mega tons stones? The precision of the cuttings,
angles etc etc... There is a whole story behind those ancient people and not just stone cutting, sound vibration and all that.
Who told Einstein the Theory of Relativity? Aliens? Why is everyone here so convinced that mankind is incapable of developing an original thought? We
are a remarkably ingenious species and our ancestors were as well. Just because they didn't have lasers and computers doesn't mean they weren't
capable of astounding things, they were. No one argues that the Greeks or Romans had aliens helping them build, yet they accomplished even more
amazing work than the megalithic construction being discussed here and they did it with the same handful of primitive tools available to our
