As we build and invent, we improve our understanding of mechanical devices and materials. It becomes easier to manipulate and modify physical things around us. With effort and imagination, we are able to make improvements and add enjoyment to our lives.
Both intuition and logic are used to make a homemade gizmo. The more two abilities are used together, more powerful combination becomes. A strong partnership of reason and creativity helps a person to produce and enjoy life.
It is fun and satisfying to conjure up and build simple devices. Those created items command more appreciation than more casually acquired, purchased items. And it feels good proving that imagination and ingenuity can make life better. Having witnessed first-hand process of invention, we wonder what other things we can achieve.
