There is a problem which TRIZ apparently cannot solve. I don't want to name the problem and leave it to the reader as an exercise.

I remind the readers that the main purpose of presenting this discussion in the journal is to identify a problem which TRIZ does not help to solve. I am looking forward to receiving your suggestions as to what this problem is. The answers and my vision of the problem will be posted in the subsequent issues of the journal.
