In a sense, I do think we are actually doomed by ignorance.

No sign seems to indicate that things would recover anyday soon. Ironically, we may notice that the greatest scientific innovations are often historically followed by periods of utter darkness...Then these innovations are rediscovered and corrected by other civilizations...The most probable scenario is that the relational model will be rediscovered by other civilizations in a few centuries but will be forgotten by everybody...Guess that some people become then guardian of the temple...
