The Real Da Vinci Code: Leonardo's Vitruvian Man

 


Visitors: 374

“The Da Vinci Man Code, Leonardo’s Real Secret Code, ” examines Leonardo Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man (the Da Vinci Man with four arms and four legs in a square and circle), the most popular secular symbol in the world. The book suggests that the Vitruvian Man is a universal symbol for great love, relationships, success, health and the 21st century paradigm of indivisible wholeness, the paradigm for world peace.

The Da Vinci Man is a universal translator between scientific models (represented by the Da Vinci Man in the square) and religious symbols (represented by the Da Vinci Man in the circle). Therefore, the Vitruvian Man (Da Vinci Man) is a bridge between science and religion. There are amazing similarities between the sacred geometry of the Da Vinci Man, Yin-Yang, Star of David, Tree of Life, Christian Cross, Mysticism and Kabbalah. Allen’s 10 years of research is supported by 400 illustrations (www.davincimancode.com).

Da Vinci devoted over 20 years of his life to the squaring of the circle, represented by the Vitruvian Man, his figure with four arms and four legs. Many believe it was Da Vinci's greatest passion and he himself believed it would transform humanity.

Author Kenneth Clark says we should not underestimate the importance of the Vitruvian Man and its enormous effect upon the Renaissance. The two cojoined forms of the Da Vinci Person represent the balance between materiality and spirituality. The Da Vinci man in the circle represents spirituality. The Da Vinci Man in the square represents materiality.

Da Vinci believed that the proportions of the human body were magical and the Da Vinci Man represented man (the microcosm) created in the image of God (the macrocosm).

Leonardo said it best: “The outstretched arms and legs of a man form a square and a circle: the square symbolizes the solid physical world and the circle the spiritual and eternal. Man bridges the gap between these two worlds. ” . . . Leonardo Da Vinci, “The Magical Proportions of Man”

I began researching for “The Da Vinci Man Code, Leonardo’s Real Secret Code” in April 1994. I noticed amazing similarities between scientific models (represented by the Da Vinci Man in the Square) and religious symbols and art (represented by the Da Vinci Man in the Circle). As Leonardo intended, the Vitruvian Man is a bridge between science and spirituality.

The Da Vinci Man is a model for the wholeness and success every person is seeking in order to achieve balance, inner peace and happiness. The two cojoined figures of the Da Vinci Man, creating a person with four arms and four legs, represents the union of man with the Divine, the integration of body and soul, heart and mind, compassion with clarity, work with love, union of masculine and feminine. The Da Vinci Man is the universal symbol for love, relationships and health. It is the logo of choice for chiropractors and other health practitioners.

As the consummate artist and scientist of his time, Leonardo Da Vinci embodied the indivisible wholeness represented by the Vitruvian Man. The two unified Da Vinci forms in the square and circle represent the Sacred Geometry of Wholeness.

The current scientific paradigm focuses on our separation from nature, emphasizing our material (Da Vinci Man in the square) rather than our angelic nature (Da Vinci Man in the circle). The two cojoined Da Vinci forms indicate that we are human angels and resemble a person with angel wings.

Our current scientific paradigm causes us to feel lonely and separate from each other. However, this is counterintuitive to our own spiritual experiences. The two cojoined forms of the Da Vinci Man, with similarities to the Yin-Yang, Star of David and Christian Cross, teach us the value of wholeness and inform us how we can achieve greater love, wealth, health and spiritual growth in our lives

As a child, one of my greatest experiences was to visit the Science and Industry Museum in Chicago and view the Electromagnetic Spectrum Exhibit. This demonstrated, to me, the unity and wholeness of creation.

I knew this would be my life’s purpose: to help others understand that, despite all appearances on the surface, everything and everyone is essentially one and united. We are not separate from our environment and each other. Everything exists in one wholeness. We are one human family. At some level The Da Vinci Man Code was born here.
