Do you believe it's possible for nomads or even cavemen to have a "civilization"?

Is "civilization" only about infrastructure and culture or can it be based on knowledge and tools?

I think the question that Graham Hancock and many others are asking is what exactly did the human race forget. Obviously we've forgotten something but what was it?

Man fears the pyramid, time fears man.
