Who stole God from science: Part 4 – Leonardo’s legacy part 1

Leonardo da Vinci: Artist, Scientist and Alchemist (Part One – An Overview)

What do you think of when someone mentions Leonardo da Vinci? Perhaps his famous artwork, the iconic “Mona Lisa” or “The Last Supper” or maybe his drawings of flying machines or the Vitruvian Man. Leonardo da Vinci is less well known as the true scientist and the amazing philosopher he was. A man connected to his own divinity and the order of the Universe, he brought invention and innovation to many areas of learning, not only within art but also to all of science, philosophy and religion.

Leonardo has been labelled as a rare talent and a genius, however he was an ordinary man who lived a simple and disciplined way of life, showing others how to live and work in the same way. From the records left to us in his notebooks, we can feel the depth of his love and understanding for humanity and his connection to God. As a teacher, Leonardo detailed for his students and the generations to follow, great volumes of facts and knowledge on many subjects. Equally as important, he shared his philosophies and showed us a way of living that allowed the all-encompassing Ageless Wisdom to express through him, delivering much for humanity.

Leonardo did not have a scholarly education and hence was also not limited by the constraints of the thinking of scholars of his time. Although being largely self-educated, Leonardo was well read in many areas of science, philosophy and religion and held all three as being equal foundations of human life, as did Pythagoras 2000 years before him.

Leonardo developed a level of understanding and wisdom across many areas of human life that led him to be known as the Universal Man. From this connection he was able to deliver much in many areas of art, philosophy and the sciences such as optics, anatomy, medicine, mathematics, astronomy, architecture, geology, hydraulics, mechanics, engineering and even town planning.

Leonardo’s work brought back the truth of the Ageless Wisdom to humanity, ending the control of an oppressive consciousness that enveloped all of society for nearly 1800 years. This consciousness dates back to the time when Aristotle had become the dominant influence within science, religion and philosophy. Furious that he was not chosen to be head of the School to replace Plato, Aristotle formed a new movement that effectively buried the philosophies of Pythagoras and Plato, replacing the all-encompassing multidimensional aspects of Pythagorean scientific enquiry with “Aristotlean logical reasoning”, hence leaving the Divine out of the equation. As a result, no significant progress was made in science for the next 1800 years [i].

It was Leonardo, during the Renaissance who brought this dark age to its end when he opened the tightly sealed lid on the true way forward in art, philosophy and in science. Copernicus, Galileo, Isaac Newton, Darwin and many other great scientists would soon follow, leading to a worldwide revolution not only in science but also within all aspects of society.

Leonardo was much admired by people from all walks of life – his students, his peers, the everyday person and royalty. However, he also had many enemies who were jealous or saw him as a threat to the entrenched order of the Dark Age and its way of thinking. As a result, Leonardo frequently had to relocate himself and his students to safety.

Foundational to his great work, Leonardo possessed a commitment to purpose that was extraordinary, a fearless determination not to be silenced by his powerful opponents and a love of truth that continues to inspire to the present day.

“Obstacles cannot crush me. Every obstacle yields to stern resolve. He who is fixed to a star does not change his mind”. Leonardo da Vinci

Leonardo with his incredible attention to detail, combined with an absolute mastery of simplicity, taught his students as well as the generations of artists and scientists that would follow, what it was like to live and work in absolute connection with the order of the Universe. Through the works of Leonardo, we can feel his love of nature, humanity and of course, God. Most importantly, Leonardo da Vinci showed us the amazing things that are possible when a scientist, artist, philosopher or any person works in this way – connected to himself, to humanity and to God.

Leonardo da Vinci was truly a human instrument of the love and divinity that God is, serving humanity as have others in the lineage of the Ageless Wisdom.

"His work is best described as true alchemy that brings ideas from the future and the past to the present and uses mathematics to translate the ideas into accessible physical forms.”
