Anything that has been created in the past 30 years that has no direct use in the military or defense, is being washed aside.

The problem is that so much science is "theoretical" now, science is rarely applied, just computer models of how things are expected to work that get revised constantly over the course of years and when they finally test anything based off their computer models nothing works because they ignored a thousand factors that would affect the outcome.

Tesla was great for applying science and getting expected results because he did his homework. Now we have physicists who theorize that the majority of the universe is composed of "dark energy" which is responsible for the expansion of the universe while ignoring the obvious reason that the rate of expansion is attributed to the big bang.

Scientists are doing fucking backflips and standing on their heads because they have to come up with new theories for their doctorates, even if the theories are retarded, then they spend years of their lives trying to prove retarded theories.

The age of the major breakthrough is long, long over. The day and age where things were so poor and technologically backwards that a few major changes can cause our standard and ways of living to radically alter in a short period of time is over. All the major shit is done, we live so well with so much today that there is little to be improved upon. Face it, the Victorian was the most radical improvement in history due to scale and relative progress from what was to what is. Its about impossible to have a technological wave with the same relative implications and changes.

Everything is about invented, now its merely making small improvements over the years. We have gone from mass breakthrough to small but steady long term improvement. You get in the history books for steam engines in the 1700's, you get in the history books for electrical shit in the late 1800's, radio and communications in the 1900's, but today there is no groundbreaking, just slow heavy slogging up the hill to make those slow steady changes, no heroism or place for that. Keep in mind, be it technology in history, or even many Youtube accounts on various subjects, sometimes the most well known and successful are the guys who got there first, not always the best and brightest of all time. You might be known as an all time great in your field, especially by people in the know, but the general masses and the shitty mainstream history books can't see you or cover you.

The only major tech I see changing the world is possible fusion/fision technology that might create impossible sums of sustainable energy on the cheap. That alone might be a global game changer. But as for everything else, it ain't gonna change things that much. We are socially in severe and probably terminal decline that will destroy this advanced civilization and drag us back into the dark ages and dirt, but right now we live in a technological utopia.

Explain why its exactly the opposite of what I stated. What great breakthroughs are left? What POSSIBLE improvements, radical improvements, are there left? Steam engines, internal combustion engines, jet engines, are all how old? The airplane is a century in development, trains are sneaking up on two centuries, the family automobile a century, telephones and radios, how long has the TV been a regular family asset? In some countries 60 years! Small arms have not made vast improvements for the same period, since the 1950's. The cell phone and internet, modern staples of the average first and even second worlder, have roots in the 1970's, 40 years ago. They have become common personal items and access to people in the first world for the last 20 years. Not only was the last great breakthroughs around 40 years ago, they have become common decades ago. There has been no major shakeups for decades.

Certain crops are seeing maxed yields with little gain in certain crops in the all important green revolution. After 720HD, MOAR improvements will be nice in graphics and TV, but do they REALLY matter? In a world where we can watch streaming TV and Youtube on a hand held personal device from most places, is 5G ever going to change the world? Smallpox was beaten, but how many other diseases and cancer are beyond our grasp, and will always remain there? Are we coming to terms with our limitations? What about diseases that are now becoming resistant to our treatments, what about mud people invading the first world and bringing back diseases we conquered and now shit on the streets to bring them back? Are we not in decline?

Factories and manufacturers might see some gains, certain tech still keeps slogging uphill, but yes, everything has been invented and most of the gains we're ever going to enjoy are already here.

A few reasons, two obvious ones I can think of

1. Those kinds of geniuses are rare, its even rarer for a genius of that level to be able to achieve anything of merit rather than just improving their immediate life on some farm in the middle of nowhere.

Newton was born wealthy and married a wealthy woman to keep funding his experiments and learning.

Tesla moved from bumbfuck Serbia to the USA.\

2. We have reached a level of scientific achievement and population where any one person contributing as much as a Newton or Tesla is more difficult as they would have to be a master of many different fields, and a lot of things have already been done.

Science these days is mostly done in teams and it requires years of work just to get to the level where people will take your discoveries seriously, unless you're working in a field that makes things that sell.
