@amphibient the goal is fascinating and I would like to wish you well; but personal attacks ("provocative to those who only defend popular opinion and political correctness") are out of place. Don't alienate those who are trying to help you. Just because I don't agree with you doesn't mean that I am defending popular opinion and political correctness.

Poverty is well defined. "Invention" and "discovery" are not well defined. I wish you luck, but I think that Whited's law ("it's more complicated than you're taking into account")is at play here. I also suspect that any answer would weigh in at book length (out of scope for this forum). On the other hand, if you wrote such a book, you could spend the rest of your career profitably defending it.

I tried to do that years ago; my then wife calmly and patiently pointed out the difficulty of defining terms like "invention" - should Gutenberg or the Chinese be credited with the printing press? Watt or the ancient Greeks with the steam engine? The Italians or the Americans with Radio? Was the wheel invented in the Americas (yes, but it was only a toy).

Guilty as charged. I get annoyed at questions with insufficient research. Rather than whine about it, I tried to respond constructively. Apparently I still have some work to do</wry>.

comment Why did Emperor Constantine believe he was a instrument of God?
1) The professor mentioned a concept; did you research that concept? Is it commonly accepted, or is the professor a crackpot? Did Constantine hold this belief? 2) You advance a hypothesis without evidence, 3) There is a lot of history between Caesar and Constantine; is Obama's use of executive orders based on George Washington's belief in a strong federal government? There is the beginning of a good question here, but it needs some research. Good luck.
