One was a studious scholar, the other an energetic dancer. Both were great rulers. Emperor Kangxi loved science and studied advanced western theories diligently, while King Louis XIV loved dancing ballet, earning his nickname the Sun King after appearing onstage as the sun god Apollo. Despite the sharp difference in their personalities and hobbies, they shared a common interest in science development in their owncountries.

King Louis established the France Academy of Science where scientists gathered weekly. Similarly, Emperor Kangxi set up the Institute of Mathematics, and had western works translated.

And, why the two countries, about 300 years ago, went in extremely different ways? One towards decline and the other industrious prosperity?

it was probably the ways they chose for the development of their respective country that make the difference...!

Kang xi?? kidding me right? He and his father plus grandfather and a gang of slaughters bloodily killed and stolen the whole China...just like what Genghis khan did to the Chinese, they're all invaders!
Well, but they never admit they were chinese themselves!---So is his grandson Qianlong, and so is empress Ci Xi---they never admit themselves being Chinese) qian long ever said "I'm not chinese", and later during the "political reform" in modern history, aiming at learning from the West, it's turned down by ci xi, cause she said the reform "will save china but won't save our qing", and she aslo said "I'd rather hand over china to those foreigners, than giving it back to those domestic slaves!" Who are you? Slaves! They couldn't even represent chinese, what they did was slaughter and steal the chinese, the history of chinese ends in Ming dynasty and relive in min guo era.
In the ancient, Ming is not only "dynasty" but aslo an independent country! So is kangxi and his ancestors' independent country "Jin" which locates in the north and later invade China there...it's not a civil war, it's a war between two different countries.

I wonder why all these history problems got so confused today, even when people like president Mao and Carl Max all those people had a clear view of these...

I think it's those false tv series sugaring up so-called great emperors, with ridiculous history knowledge have done too much harm to people's mind!
