This does not strike me as true. It is known that Satoshi Nakamoto had a decent idea about the potential social impact that Bitcoin would have, and perhaps smartphone manufacturers had dreams of the kind of global influence they could have, but I don't think the ancient invention of the brick requires a "knotty creator".
As defined, all objects are knotty. That is fundamental beauty and truth of our reality. It doesn't require a "knotty creator" to create knotty objects - one may mindlessly produce trash, but it may be a knotty piece of gold to others.
