Explaining the story of how we came to be in the Eve universe is a bit tough to do at this point because it's been more than hinted at that what we where told happened, is probably not what happened. A lot of aspects in the various background stories of Eve are actually about the decay of knowlage over time. The Eve gate and how it was closed isn't the only example of this. The Sleepers too are a good example. We can find evidence all over Eve of the ancient Sleeper race, but finding out exactly what happened to them is quite hard because over time, our knowlage of them, as well as the evidence they left behind, decayed.
If you really really want to know what happened to the Eve gate, or about anything else in the Eve history, you'll have to engage in the very fun passtime of delving into the game looking for clues and theorize, and discuss with others.
I surely do recommend it, it's fun!

Of course we have to separate what we as player know and what the citizens of New Eden know or can theorize about their origins. Thing is, ancient ruins and remnants do suggest that there were civilizations even predating the current empires, and surely scientists can point to migration patterns and genetic drift suggesting that the EvE gate is the point of origin of the colonization of New Eden.

But that's that - theories and assumptions. People know and see that they've lost a lot of knowledge over time, but what...

On the other hand, there are the Jove. Mired in secrecy, they gather and hunt for information and knowledge all across New Eden, but they seldom share, with the notable exception of the capsuleer technology. Rumours are that they even go so far as to hinder scientific efforts of the other empires to unravel the secrets of the past.
