the wheel triggered human transport and further mathematical advancements that facilitated other inventions.

Printing press - allowed information to be disseminated more efficiently.

Internet - like the printing press but even more accessible, efficient and with virtually limitless capacity to store information.

I know it's more of a discovery rather than an invention but electricity has been so vital to perpetuating more human discovery and invention. Maybe more apt is saying the invention of the dynamo and electrical generation.

Definitely the washing machine. People dont know this but its proven that the washing machine affected more lives worldwide in a positive than the invention of the internet did.

Fire. (Discovery, not an invention but important nonetheless.)

Industrialisation. (The world advanced a lot in such a small amount of time since.)

Oh dear, you think I am trying to be edgy.

You'll learn. Or maybe you won't. Either way I shall care not a jot.
