    Because europeans had each other to compete with and war with and they also competed with north africa and the middle east. China was and Japan were wholly isolated, and if you look into japanese history, the moment they started opening up to the west they got a huge tech upgrade, then they closed their borders to any non japanese and then they opened up again and now they are a technological superpower. Isolation breeds stagnation no matter which culture it is.
