Well simple explanation: exploration, hardship, innovation, complacency, decadence & ignorance, society dies, dark age, knowledge lost, by chance new people stumble on a time capsule; rinse - repeat ... Civilisation restarts. Take the USA as an example. 1500-1700 exploration, 1700-1900 hardship, 1900-2000 innovation, 2000- now complacency alil bit of decadence & ignorance is cripping in... Reality tv, flat earth theories, climate change denials etc etc. (We are here).

Right from ancient civilisations right up to now this has being the model. From Norte chico, Indus Kush, Egyptians, Hittites, Mittani, Minoans and Mycenaeans, Chinese, Sumerians, Babylonians, Assyrians, Ancient Libya, Persians Greeks, Estrucans, Romans, Vikings, Nabataeans, Muslims, Christians, Mongols, Ottoman Empire, Early European Empires - French, British, Spanish etc,
