Let me just answer this in simple words. Think of Ancient Rome as a great, big machine. It was pretty amazing for its time, with clever things like aqueducts to bring water into the city and great roads to connect far-off places. But it wasn't anywhere near having an Industrial Revolution like the one we saw a couple of centuries ago.

Here's why: Rome's big machine was powered by people, not engines. There were a lot of slaves doing the work. This meant that there wasn't much need to come up with new machines to do the work instead.

Also, the way money and business worked in Rome was really different from now. A lot of the time, people got rich by winning wars, not by selling things. This means there wasn't a big push to make things faster or cheaper like there was when the Industrial Revolution happened.

What's more, the Romans liked things to stay pretty much the same. They did come up with some clever new ideas, especially for building things. But they didn't usually go for big changes in the way things worked. And the Industrial Revolution was all about big changes.

Last of all, even though the Romans were smart and had some great ideas, they didn't have all the bits and pieces you need for an Industrial Revolution. They were really good at making things out of metal, but they hadn't figured out how to use metal to make engines. And they didn't have anything like steam power.

So, while Ancient Rome was an advanced place for that time in human history, it wasn't anywhere close to the brink of an Industrial Revolution.

Nasci no remoto ano de 1945, em São Lourenço, encantadora estação de águas no sul de Minas, aonde Manuel Bandeira e outros doentes iam veranear em busca dos bons ares e águas minerais, que lhes pudessem restituir a saúde.
