No NEW inventions or ideas for decades??
Have humans now learned everything and stopped advancing?

I dont consider self driving cars or new models of CPUs or phones as new inventions as they are just modifications of existing products.

Same A/C power since Tesla invented it. Same wireless since Tesla. Same cars since Ford. Same airplanes. Same CPUs. Same transistors. Same rocket engines. Same robots. etc, etc, etc,

Yes, they all have gotten more perfected over time but nothing is new.

I invented a resealable beer can.

Because everyone always leaves beer in their open can.

I lost millions on that one.

On many of the mentioned inventions it is not decades, it is a century. That could mean that perfection has been reached and there is no better way to create power, etc.

Wow, that might explain it alright. Maybe they do have anti gravity in places like Area 51 but decided that they cannot control the public if they get it. Something just seems odd that nothing new has come out for so long.

Doesnt explain why things are not invented in Europe or Asia though.

100% Correct!

However There Is Lots Of Advancement... We are just not seeing it... due to suppression on many levels...

Re: No NEW inventions or ideas for decades??
2020 should be fun :) lots of patents finally being released. I heard that most of the really intense new tech was all put on hold until we hit a more logical, and "futuristic" year. 2020 would make sense if we had a big technology shift. Doing anything too wild before a goofy year like that could give people culture shock.

Re: No NEW inventions or ideas for decades??
There are new inventions, even groundbreaking ones, but it is not just the military that has concerns about potential abuses.
As a civilization we have been teetering on the edge of oblivion for some time. There are tremendously exotic new vistas for advancement but we haven't evolved our societies' out of their primitive violent and greedy natures.
The systems of control have stunted human ethical progress and channeled out collective efforts in wasteful and destructive endeavors.
Just as in Tesla's era the systems of capitalization of inventive forces is heavily weighted towards the pre-existing power structures, which favor stagnation and decay rather than human flourishing and evolution.
When the time is right or when it just can't be stopped, the lotus flower will emerge out of the fetid swamp water that is our status quo, and the magic will flow.

Education peaked in 1970 in the U.S. and has been on general decline ever since. Blacks then fueled lower levels of learning (no I.Q. tests) and continue to do so. Nicola Tesla had so much to offer but people stealing from him basically cut us out to his future inventions. Obama era education standards guarantee lower levels of student learning for years to come.

Notice how things are always just around the corner, like Virtual Reality.

I don't think my computer today is that much better really than an Amiga 3000 I had 30 years ago. Loads more RAM and CPU power etc but there isn't that much difference to using it.

I don't know what you mean, OP.

How do you define new?

Cellphones certainly are different today with touchscreens. It just takes 5-10 years to cross the deathvalley from research to retail.

I work in research and in 5-7 years we will have lots of functional materials (e.g. self-healing, self-cleaning, self-monitoring), wearable/weavable electronics, energy harvesting to power small electronics (body heat, motion, ambient electromagnetic fields, artificial light), and so on. It's all halfway to retail already.

Or are you talking about paradigm shifting new? Like the internet? The internet-of-things is coming next.

Great but these things often collapse in testing and never become widespread technology. That University will play around with it for 20 years and then decide it is not worth using.

Tesla conceived and invented A/C power by himself in less than 3 years before 1900. We are still using his invention and power grid in 2017.

"Halfway" and most of that is just miniaturizing transistors. Transistors are not new, "Solid State" has been a selling feature since the 50s.

Heard this same bullshit about "almost" having flying cars since the 60s.

Tesla mainly worked on his own with his own original ideas. Maybe a Tesla brain only occurs once every century or less. Read the historical novel "Tesla" by Tad Wise. Tesla invented many of the products and ideas that others ended up getting credit for.

There is no creativity and very little innovation. Quality, however is at an all time low. A phone would last one family for decades with all family members using the same phone constantly. The innovation may be to be obselete, because that is what we have
