Do you think that ancient civilians were more advanced than what we're led to believe? Could they have been more advanced than today's society?

If you research ancient history, technologies, etc., in many ways some societies/cultures were incredibly advanced when you think of what they could achieve 1000 to 2000BC as an example like with the assumed date of the Antikythera Mechanism
Now if you consider today's society in comparison we're, in many ways, not as advanced. Yes, we have computers, so did the ancients in a way. Yes, we have cars, what do you think a chariot or wagon was?

In today's society rather
Most people are easily entertained by what are simple things - video games as an example, shoddy movies, etc. - like a magpie with a shiny object. The "Keep up with the Jones" mentality (where if your friends, family, co-workers, neighbors buys something new & expensive you've gotta do the same or better) dubbed stupid by NY Times comics early 1900s is very prevalent in modern society because the ever-increasing norm is a sheep-like don't-think-for-yourself mindset ("hive mentality" the same mind as an ant, bee or termite). A mindset similar to the limited (financial, etc., intelligence, etc.) mentality of peasants/serfs of yesteryears that were easily appeased by their lords & ladies throwing a few coins their way (makes sense in a way as those peasants/serfs had large families & thus their genes contributed more widely to the human gene pool than someone whose energies/time was spent more in advancement).
