The premise under consideration is a 12K-year cycle. Humankind has been extant for 1-200,000 years give or take. Do the math. DNA evidence suggests that there has been at least one culling that reduced the population to tens of thousands.

There exists ample evidence of an antediluvian culture that could polish granite to optical clarity and throw up vast polygonal walls. Humankind persists, whole cultures are swept away.

Mars isn't the answer but Phobos might be.

"We find that whole communities suddenly fix their minds upon one object, and go mad in its pursuit; that millions of people become simultaneously impressed with one delusion, and run after it, till their attention is caught by some new folly more captivating than the first."
