One invention stumbles upon another invention ! But if imagined another way, what would have happened if there were no world wars, would we have had developed the "so called technicalities" to what we are? similarly the ancient civilizations might not have thought of doing most of the inventions just because they just might not have felt its need. . isnt it? and this is what we are talking about is 10000 years past, ooh man ! can u imagine the big figure ?? what could have happened in that period?? no one knows? Archeologist can not find each and every evidence on earth. Recently archeologists found the whole city of Dwarka during the time of Pandavas and Kauravas in the sea coasts of Gujarat , India !! This whole epic script was considered to be just a fantasy or a fairy tale, but now, its a proof that these scripts were not a story but a hard core facts. We need to change our notions and think with the positive and optimistic view point of these scripts. Who know , we can come up and develop a new technology, based on ancient technology !!! ???? !!!
Easy tiger, the Empire State Building is not proof King Kong existed. Local myths and fables always use local place names. Not saying it is a myth or fable but we might need to look into it a bit more.
