I refuse to believe we used to be cavemen and now we can go to fucking space and watch cuck porn. There has to be a mad scientist running all of this right? Rick Sanchez perhaps

No. And our rocket technology is rather primitive. We make big bombs of kerosene, liquid oxygen, or various nastier things that are open on one side: space rocket.
Do you know how nuclear energy works? We harness a nuclear reaction to.... Boil steam that turns a turbine. The modern nuclear power plant is a goddamned steam engine.
The phone though and computing... That's pretty impressive. You probably take it for granted you carry around a miniature computer and communicator. That's more advanced than The Original Star Trek's tech. The processing power in a phone is massively more power than anything they had for the first moon landing.

This reminds me of a something Penn Jillette said. He was on an airplane with a guy who was complaining about not being able to connect to the on-board wi-fi. Jillette reminded the man of how far technology has advanced and that Genghis Khan would have probably given up all of his conquests for one ride in that airplane.

It would explain the mandela effect, if true.
