What do you mean by end all invention? Do we mean a pinnacle of all knowledge that can never be surpassed? The invention of all? Or do we mean merely an end to progress?

It could be a Doomsday Device which ends all life on earth, and thus invention by humans. So, not that.

Or, it could be something so great that no more invention was needed. I don't know whether that's good or bad. I hope that it doesn't exclude art. If so, I don't think you would see art go away.
