Does history repeat itself? Does history tend to go in a series of stages such as decline and golden ages, or does history only progress making us far more advanced then our near and far ancestors? Do you like history is linear or circular?

Yeah, and often times, history repeats itself and uses different terminology that means the same thing!

Example? History technically can't repeat itself unless you have a time machine...

It can't repeat itself 100% exactly, the phrase "history repeats itself" is used for when the big picture of events is repeated, not the minute details. Like if Germany started invading various nations in Europe and started killing Jews and Gays (and others) again, but they went by "notzis" and their leader was Alfred Hatler who had a handle bar mustache, it would be accurate to suggest that history was repeating.

Explain deja vu then, wankers. I swear I've had this conversation before.
