Vitruvian Man Vitruvian Man Presentation Transcript

  • Vitruvian Man The true dimensions of the Human Being
  • Leonardo da Vinci, 1452 The evident and explicit is not usually the whole truth The Vitruvian Man is one of the more well known sketches in the world. Leonardo Da Vinci designed it to express the idea of the dimensions of the Human. In principle the Human body. As a realist and a perfectionist he measured the Human body from every angle, so he could understand better its dimensions and be able to draw and sculpt it perfectly. And he did. Man's height is four cubits (and thus 24 palms). The length of a man's outspread arms is equal to his height. The distance from the hairline to the bottom of the chin is one-tenth of a man's height. The distance from the top of the head to the bottom of the chin is one-eighth of a man's height. The distance from the bottom of the neck to the hairline is one-sixth of a man's height, etc.
  • Leonardo da Vinci, 1452 The things more tangible and physical in appearance are often the ones with more metaphysical significance The real dimensions of the Human Being are not the physical dimensions. The human being is one and three at the same time: body, mind and soul. There is a perfect body, like Da Vinci explained in the sketch, but the perfect Human Being is the one that is perfectly balanced in its three dimensions.
  • Leonardo da Vinci, 1452 The things more tangible and physical in appearance are often the ones with more metaphysical significance At the physical level, the body as well as the human being, is a complex system. It can be divided into 10 perfectly connected and functional systems: Circulatory, digestive, muscular and nervous among them.
  • Leonardo da Vinci, 1452 You probably have heard that humans and chimpancé share 98% of their DNA The main differentiator between the human and animal world is precisely the intangible, not the body. First: the intellect that resides in the mind. We are talking about intelligence, creativity. Second: our capability to feel, that resides in the soul. Not feeling in term of the senses, but in term of the heart. Love, pain, frustration. Feeling with the senses is only a electrical connection. Feeling with the soul is a combination of biochemical and electrical connections.
  • Leonardo da Vinci, 1452 The magic of the human being is that it can be individualized but not isolated The human being exists by itself but also in terms of his relationship with the others and nature. And in this field is where our humanity, our mind and our soul really work.
  • Leonardo da Vinci, 1452 The body and its relationship with the mind The Nervous System connects every part of the The universe at this level body to the brain. They are our interfaces to the The universe at thisI level hear, smell, is: what see, material world. is: what I see, hear, feel. touch or smell, touch or feel. There is nothing outside this circle. According with our body.
  • Leonardo da Vinci, 1452 The body and its relationship with the mind MIND But also through the mind we learn that there is me, there is the others and there is nature. So our universe expands infinitely.
  • Leonardo da Vinci, 1452 The Soul The human being exists by itself but also in terms of its relationship with the other and nature. And in this field is where our humanity, our mind and our soul really work.
  • Leonardo da Vinci, 1452 The body and its relationship with the soul The soul is more a transmitter than a receiver. It The Solar SOUL puts us in contact with everything in the Plexus universe. connects the Soul with the body When you love something it is because you connect with it, the two things have found the same frequency and receive and transmit freely. Have you heard of a ¨hunch¨? Have you heard of ¨butterflies in my stomach¨? All are really a manifestation of the soul with others and nature. So our universe expands infinitely. And we get to recognize that it consists of me, the others and nature.
  • Leonardo da Vinci, 1452 The perfect human is the most balanced one. Balanced means in Harmony. The body is in harmony when it is healthy. The mind is in harmony when its purpose of existence, the creative thinking, is active. The soul is in harmony when we recognize ourselves as part of a bigger whole: me, the others and nature. So, if you hurt / love yourself, others or the nature, you are hurting / loving yourself, and that means absence / abundance of harmony. When you love and serve yourself, the others and nature, then regrets, impatience, violence and all feelings of disharmony disappear.
  • Leonardo da Vinci, 1452 A Human in Harmony. Active creative MIND thinking Loves and Takes care of its physical body. service himself, the others and SOUL nature Cannot stop being active in creative thinking. Transmits and therefore receives love for it self, Eats well, the others and nature. exercises BODY and rests well
