I just read a PDF file that shows a list of things that WE CANNOT INVENT.

Here the link mate; it doesn't matter if its real or not. The fact of the matter is, someone took their sweet time to write it and it reached my eyes. There is waaaaay to much evidence out there to show that smart people go missing.

Unfortunately that is life get over it. You can
1) Go to a Dr get some whacked out Anti-depressant drugs & live your life in a haze with hours of endless counseling to brainwash you in more comfortable thinking patterns (Sad but true)
2) Kill yourself - probably not recommended
3) Just deal with it. Battle on with your injuries with treatment, surgeries & medication. Just try to accept the world with all its faults (Hard to do)
4) Become a hermit & bludge off the taxpayer & live a fantasy world. No internet, TV, or phone etc etc
It's your life, your call. Take it or leave it!. Sadly these are everybody's choices. But talk it over with a real person not a Internet forum before you make your final decision.

I don't see what the big deal is. Seriously.
The title of the document is a misnomer: you can invent anything you want--you just cannot get a patent on it. Can you blame them? Should I be able to invent a radar-absorbing stealth paint, which I then refuse to sell to my country's military, but then turn around and sell it to her rivals?
I can invent it. I can even sell my idea to the weapon-makers. I just cannot patent it, because patents give the exclusive right of manufacture to the holder. This would preclude my nation from using the best equipment available.
You know that's the way the Allies broke the Enigma Code, right? The Ultra machine was designed by a Dutch firm that had patented it, which meant the patent was on file with the Dutch government. The Germans found that patent, used it, and improved the design; but the Polish signal corps got a copy of the original patent and built a prototype, which they smuggled to London on the eve of the Nazi occupation of Poland. If that patent had not been on file with the Dutch government... the Allies might have lost the D-Day invasion....
The military has simply decided not to let those sorts of risks occur in the future.

I completely understand this point of view. It makes sense within the system we are currently living under, however... There would be NO reason for countries to fight one another if A. the drug war came to an end. B. If a proper educational system was put into place. C. Special interest came to a complete stop.
Its about how pissed I am that i am able to think of a billion and one ways on making society work the way it should in order to end suffering caused by artificial suppression.
