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.

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.

There was progress to get to that point, and now we still see progress, great progress.

You seem to refuse to read this thread or even consider the other comments. All of your issues have been addressed.

"Self driving cars" using the same combustion engine from 120 year ago.

"Spacecraft" using the same rocket engines developed by the Germans in WWII.

"Self cleaning toilets" are gimmicks.

Networking microchips and writing instructions for that is not new.

Things have been invented but not really big or useful things. Remember when "buckyballs" and "fractals" where the "new" inventions that would revolutionize everything? New inventions are not always actually useful inventions.
