many civilizations have fallen into anarchy before, completely falling and allowing new civilizations to be born out of them.

The Olmecs fell to birth the Miztecs and Aztecs but not for a few hundred years.

The Western Roman empire fell and Europe descended into darkness for hundreds of years

When the Indus Valley Civilization fell only farmers were left who formed the Tamil Civilization and created the Indian Civilization.

When western civilization falls, it may be grander and harder to recover but undoubtedly we will.. or will we?

(i'm genuinely curious to know what makes us different)

The existence of nuclear weapons makes the fall of any modern civilization a worldwide catastrophe. The ensuing fallout and nuclear winter will likely render the earth uninhabitable by anything except deep ground dwelling nonmammals, the hardiest of the bacteria etc, and the bottom feeders of the ocean.

Perhaps, or maybe the downfall of civilization is less thunderous.

The collapse of industrial agriculture and the ensuing Global Climate change is an inevitability which will create worldwide famines and destroy civilization from the inside out. I doubt highly that nuclear war would result from a breakdown of societies (however i'm aware this is conjecture)

This happened around 1177 AD to the first "global" network of civilizations (Egyptians, Hittites, Canaanites, Cypriots, Minoans, Mycenaeans, Assyrians and Babylonians) Where when the famines started (due to global rainfall shortage) the civilizations did not war with one another, but instead were assaulted from marauding bands of hungry peoples who utterly decimated the cities and led to the downfall of civilization.

It wasn't a global power grab, it was an embarrassing decline where god-kings could not defeat disorder and were left humbled by savage bands of peoples.
Now our own downfall would undoubtedly be more spectacular, but i doubt any nation would resort to nuclear weapons to feed their peoples.

The Indus valley peoples did not collapse. They were refugees from a prior civ of the last age, and then recovered and spread out primarily to the west. Fuck anyone making up history today, just look at the fucking linguistics, and the drift of their alphabet around the globe. If you don't believe me, ask the dalai lama. They held onto all the info. Both what was to be recovered, and what the sages brought as their lands fell into the hands of ignorant savages.

The concept of the Dark Ages is a fucking myth, Roman infrastructure didnt just disappear, knowledge didnt just vanish, it was a slow decline and a collapse of government. The concept of the dark ages was just high latin elitist crap in response to growing Germanic cultures. The fall of Rome led to fewer and more fluid class systems, and the coinciding rise of the Church actually brought about a fair amount of gender equity during the Medieval period

thing is... our population now is much bigger and we modified the nature (roads, coffeshops, houses, roads, etc etc) . if we fail now, it will be a really big mess.

when our ancestors* fell, it was really pretty much about human lives, and some burnt grass.

i'll let you get the conclusions. yet, we can still rise, but it may be in a very retarded way.

Many Roman cities still stood in the face of the Barbarian invasions. However they could only hold out independent of Rome for so long, and many allied with the Barbarian invaders. Contributing their garrisons of Legionnaires to the invading Barbarian Kings forces, in return for being apart of these new kingdoms and their nobility.

>undoubtedly we will.. or will we?

SO much is going to be lost when our civilization dies. All our knowledge is contained on devices which require our society's technology to operate. Once our society goes away, so too does our knowledge or really.

The people? Yeah we'll still be here. Humans are survivors, we have adapted to life in nearly every climate this planet has to offer, and we'll do it again if we need to.

We will leave behind many more colossal monuments than the ancients did, though they certainly left their mark. Some anthropologist 2000 years from now will probably think our society was completely powered by hydroelectric generation.

That makes no sense. Our tech will still be here, so our knowledge will survive.

Im sure Nuclear Power Stations would leave behind some sort of foot print.

We are NOT leaving more monuments. Modern construction methods aren't meant to last, they're meant to be cost effective, fast to put up, and so on. Without maintenance, they will quickly crumble.

Most of them are underwater, that survive to any extent. The rest were destroyed by the rapid melting of glaciers. Ahh, unless you mean the time before that. That was what caused the ice age eventually though, but crystalline methane sulfate was easy to get with the water so low, so some had a good fuel source til the rebound.

we have some thing those other civilizations didn't have. A method to communicate vast distances with a push of a button it would take a lot for civilization to collapse like it has before.
