Mankind must have the knowledge of how all things work mechanically and automatically, so that he may see his way clearly on his upward journey, and know the laws on which he can depend, and the signposts of the road he travels through space. HE must recognize the laws on which the Universe rests.
The Son of God said to men that they should take up the Cross and follow HIM.
