Father often talked of things being "revealed".
"That was true invention" he said - revealing something's use and magnifying it, discovering it's imperfections and proving it and putting it to work for you.
"God had left the world incomplete", he said. "And it was man's job to understand how it worked, to tinker with it, and to finish it".
I think that was why he hated missionaries so much because they taught people to put up with their earthly burdens. For Father, there are no burdens that couldn't be fitted with a set of wheels or runners, or system of pullies.
