AS LEONARDO DA VINCI WELL UNDERSTOOD...


ALL IS IN NATURE • WE ARE A CIRCUMSTANCE of NATURE

Drawing served as Leonardo's laboratory, allowing him to work out

his ideas on paper and search for the universal laws that he believed

underpinned all of creation. Leonardo's drawings in the Royal Collection

have been together as a group since the artist's death in 1519. Acquired

during the reign of Charles II, they provide an unparalleled insight into the

workings of Leonardo's mind and reflect the full range of his interests,

including painting, sculpture, architecture, anatomy, engineering,

cartography, geology and botany. 

The Queen whose in-depth appreciation and understanding of Leonardo • as

the daughter of parents whose support for the peoples of Britain, during the

crisis of the BLITZ in London and throughout the rest of the country • yesterday

urged Britain to come together as she assured the country that the Royal Family

was ready to play its part, no doubt in the context of Leonardo's own in depth

understanding of the fact that "WE ARE a CIRCUMSTANCE of NATURE". 

She left Buckingham Palace for Windsor Castle a week earlier than usual to

socially distance herself amid the coronavirus crisis.

In Leonardo's illustrations of his brain studies, his three dimensional cross

 section of a human skull indicates how all the sensory nerves 'pour into' a

 single point at the geometric centre which he referred to as the sensus

 communis, which is the latin, from which 'common sense' in English

 has derived. The roots of this idea, originally lie in Aristotle's own idea

 of a sensus communis, an inner sense common to the different senses.

 Aristotle believed the sensus communis to be situated in the heart and

 that it was responsible for self-awareness, imagery and dreaming.
