Hello world, we all know Leonardo da Vinci, but from what I saw in many documentary movies, not many tried to put into his shoes, into his mind, his personal life, his emotions in order to better understand why Leonardo was so maniac to study so many different domains of activity. What he was looking for? Why did he was so scared and he hidden so many messages in his art work?
My answers are simple.. he somehow managed to saw the future with his brilliant mind that did connection that only a few can do.. he got so scared because he was aware that no one will really understood what he saw.. but he had this unstoppable desire to let something useful after his death for the future generations. After 500+ years, we will look like stupid people in comparison with him, how do we deal with this fact?
There are people on this planet even today, that don’t know what happens with the SUN in the night time.. and trust when I say.. that there are many people like this… Where our Education systems are failing? Where?
Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci (Italian pronunciation: [leoˈnardo da vˈvintʃi] pronunciation (help·info); April 15, 1452 – May 2, 1519, Old Style) was an Italian Renaissance polymath: painter, sculptor, architect, musician, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist, and writer. His genius, perhaps more than that of any other figure, epitomized the Renaissance humanist ideal. Leonardo has often been described as the archetype of the Renaissance Man, a man of “unquenchable curiosity” and “feverishly inventive imagination”. He is widely considered to be one of the greatest painters of all time and perhaps the most diversely talented person ever to have lived. According to art historian Helen Gardner, the scope and depth of his interests were without precedent and “his mind and personality seem to us superhuman, the man himself mysterious and remote”. Marco Rosci states that while there is much speculation about Leonardo, his vision of the world is essentially logical rather than mysterious, and that the empirical methods he employed were unusual for his time.
In 1485 Leonardo was 33 years old you have here more details of his drawings from that time:
Those drawings are 528 years old, how astonishing is that?
My personal opinion is that, for any person, is impossible to see something like that without proper Education, and that Education to lead to the point when the mind is basically unblocked and you start to think very very outside of the box and in that moment each person has the chance to accomplish amazing things.
In my opinion Leonardo was not only a Genius but also a man with bipolar disorder, at least it is the way I feel him in his work. A man that started to think in numbers and if we want to decode his artwork properly it can only be decoded properly and objectively by people with bipolar disorder that started to get maniacs with numbers and spirituality, but spirituality not based on a Religion or another but mostly based on the TRUTH. Universal Truth is advanced Math, but what we have today is a joke.. I mean it is still way behind other advanced civilizations, but I feel that we are on the good path because since Computers Era, the Evolution speed it up like never before, if you fail to see this, trust me that you don’t have enough Education.
What do you think? Was Leonardo more than a Genius? Why he alone managed to accomplish so many things almost alone, more than 500 years ago and today more than 7 billions people, that claim themselves to be more Educated, smarter etc.. we still don’t manage to have Global Peace, no Wars, no Violence and so on? Why?
We also read on Wikipedia:
For those who don’t know Matthias Corvinus was born in what today is called Romania, town Cluj-Napoca exactly… so maybe Leonardo also visited Romania at 33 years old? The town where Mattias Corvinus was born? Who knows…we will have to ask Leonardo if we manage in the future to return in time… or to better read his words.
Thank you Leonardo.
