    Yes, we might lose these things but not the process to remake them so we would just do that.

    Of course we could. Your question does not set a time line and it does not say libraries are gone. All the information you need to do anything is captured in one or more libraries. That is something many younger people forget.

    SURE WE CAN !!   STEEL WAS MADE 2000 YEARS AGO IN ANCIENT AGE TIME !

    TOASTER USED WITH REAL FIRE HEAT WAS MADE AND USED MORE THAN 500 YEARS AGO.

    ONLY COMPUTER FROM YOUR QUESTION CAN NOT BE MADE .

    Optimistically, I would say yes.  To do over the complete stuff, like steel making, electronics, home appliances, surely enough people will have the ability and backgrounds to try and be sort of successful.

    One big problem--resources.  Humans have used so much of the easy stuff to get to--iron ore, rare earths, bauxite (for aluminum), and oil, it would be nearly impossible to scale up to feed everyone, much less try for a replaced civilization.

    Read the Club Of Rome reports from 1972 and every year following about what is going to happen to Earth in the next 20 to 30 years.  www.clubofrome.org lets you read most of the first one.  And it is still accurate.

    Apologize to your children and grandchildren (if any) about what you and your ancestors have done to their chances of having a happy or comfortable life, or even surviving for a few years.

    The fortunate will run screaming with hair on fire and die quickly.  The unlucky will starve slowly or be killed for their supplies or flesh.  Don't believe that?  The 40 year old computer projections are right on track today.

    Hard to say; once mankind started over, we almost certainly would get to the point we're at now.
