Invention or Discovery?

If you are in business, science or an artist who creates it seems to me that things are discovered rather Pnireusthan "invented" in our world.  Solomon had something to say about this.

What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun. (Ecclesiastes 1:9)

As a musician, my best songwriting seems to be discovered.  The raw combination of notes, rhythms and textures that move people are discovered.  The famous Michelangelo once said, "I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free."  He knew his art was not a creation, but a discovery

In WIRED magazine’s February print edition , Physicist Pete Vukusic of the University of Exeter in UK found that new technology dealing with LED mimics African butterflies.  It took MIT researchers five years to develop "high-efficiency LEDs" that the light-reflecting properties African butterflies already mimic.
