ANATOMIC - ARTIST - ADVENTURER 


Leonardo da Vinci
 and 
the connessione
  with the EIDEs

WE can pinpoint the emergence of Leonardo da Vinci’s interest in

human anatomy with some accuracy. It was at the end of the 1480s,

when he was working for Ludovico Maria Sforza, the swarthy ruler

of Milan. One day Leonardo sat down and inscribed the top of a

sheet of paper using his idiosyncratic right-to-left mirror writing

with the words, “On the 2nd day of April 1489”, adding later ...

“Book entitled On the Human Figure” - so the ONLY way we can

FIGURE out the answer to THE particular question ... 

"What letter do we add to S T E M ?" -  

is to defer to the master 
himself ... and on his behalf and in his

name, I would add  A  to make it  S T E A M 


BUT above ALL it was Leonardo's ART of the application of MATHS

to his work as an Artist, Sculptor, Engineer et al, which absolutely

made him the INTEGRAL ARTIST par excellence, which we now

know him to have been, half a millennium later.

Now look at this!! THIS! is what our children should be reading and seeing in school. Religious or not, Science, Math, History, look at the ART! This picture, in all of it's rich detail says "READ ME!"

  Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici toured Quatama Elementary

  to explore the crossroads of art and science. She says art education

  is important to industry.

       “Creative thinkers are going to be the next generation

        of innovators, and arts education really furthers that,

        and makes sure that we have the next generation of

        entrepreneurs, of creative thinkers and inventors” 

  Bonamici is a new member of the House Education Committee.  

  She’s hoping to gain support for a caucus she’s creating called

  “STEM to STEAM” – by adding an “A” for Art to the combination

  of science, technology, engineering, and math.

The underlying magic of numbers is no longer hidden behind abstract algebra and complex equations. Incredible Numbers makes clear some of the most intriguing mathematical mysteries. An enormous number of flowers have petals corresponding to Fibonacci numbers, the 13 petalled Echnecea and 21 petalled daisy are just two examples; and the sizes of the leaves of an Echeveria prolifica seem to follow the Fibonacci sequence. The passionfruit flower has three stigmas and five anthers and the spirals on the base of a pinecone correspond to fibonacci numbers. The cut of leaves often match the golden spiral, the angle of sunflower seeds id closely related to the golden ratio and the aloe displays the Fibonacci spiral. The galaxy Messier 51 has a spiral structure and weather systems sometimes follow a logarithmic spiral, the golden spiral being one example of same.
