wheel

currency

irrigation

steam

electricity

internal combustion

internet

bitcoin


What do you think? 

I think maybe urbanisation is more important than steam, but it is not a single invention/development. it is combination of sewers/water network/highly efficient farming/all new technologies.

this 8 points are just my first thought, maybe you can perfect it with some sugestions

For me:
fire

wheel

steam

car (motorized vehicles)

electrictiy

cooling systems (refrigerator)

internet

PORN

When thinking about these things, I always add calculus (in particular derivatives and integrals) to my list.  After all, this is the very foundation on which most of modern engineering and science is built!

Yup. I was thinking that extremally important, but it evolved not discovered. even monkeys and birds can count to limited numbers.
