When it comes to Finch, apart from Mona Lisa, the last supper is probably the first thing you think of. But how can this learned man from Italy, one of the three great men after the Renaissance, achieve such a remarkable achievement just by painting?
It can be said that he is a learned man. First of all, he must make great achievements in all fields. Although Leonardo da Vinci’s painting art is recognized as the highest of all his achievements, when people know his achievements in biology, astronomy, physics, geology, mathematics, architecture and so on, they will understand that painting is only a means to express and describe his scientific achievements.
What kind of growth experience has made Leonardo da Vinci such a rare genius, and this is one of the countless people who want to explore and understand most. But it’s a pity that Da Vinci’s childhood experience has not been recorded in detail, and his “resume” has only a few words to finish.
Born on April 15, 1452, Da Vinci’s father is a notary. It sounds like such a family doesn’t worry about food and clothing at least. But it’s a pity that Da Vinci was just an illegitimate child of his father and a peasant woman. From the beginning, he didn’t even have his own surname.
People don’t know whether Da Vinci’s childhood life was bitter or sweet, but he didn’t learn Latin, geometry or mathematics, or painting. It is said that Da Vinci once explored a mysterious cave when he was a child. From then on, the young Da Vinci suddenly picked up the brush and drew a terrible monster.
Therefore, it was not until later that someone said that Da Vinci met the space-time tunnel in the cave and met the aliens. Others say that Da Vinci is a scientist from modern times, otherwise it is difficult to explain his sea like wisdom and amazing design.
Before his death in 1519, Da Vinci left more than 6000 manuscripts to the world, as well as an unfinished painting theory. In addition to the aesthetic and artistic knowledge mentioned in on painting, most of its manuscripts are comprehensive design manuscripts.
Leonardo da Vinci has dissected many people’s corpses, and accurately drew images of human bones, muscles, viscera and so on. Although there was no theory of human body medicine at that time, Da Vinci had designed a set of drawings for the artificial heart. In ancient times, anatomy was severely condemned, and Da Vinci’s works and designs were persecuted.
But that didn’t stop Leonardo from designing the first robot in the West. The whole body was connected by gears, manipulators and other parts. So far, this image is still regarded as the rudiment of the robot. He not only applied machinery to the field of biology, but also got inspiration from his manuscripts when he invented modern motor vehicles.
In the era of Da Vinci’s life, the only means of transportation was carriage. He was not satisfied with this backward mode of transportation, so he designed a car himself. In addition, Leonardo designed his own bicycles, cameras, thermometers, cranes, excavators, musical instruments and other items.
No wonder most Western scientists believe that many technological products in modern society are actually imitating Da Vinci’s designs. He also negated “geocentric theory” and “heliocentric theory” with his own calculation, which is half a century earlier than Copernicus’ theory.
But the research manuscript had not been made public at that time, otherwise Da Vinci’s fate would not be much better than his descendants’ adherence to the heliocentric theory. Physically speaking, he first studied the tribology of objects, and discovered the principle of inertia and gravity. It is proved by experiments that the principle of inertia is 60 years earlier than Galileo and 200 years earlier than Newton’s discovery of gravity.
However, Da Vinci would only draw these studies and ideas in his life. For him, it was like a stroll in various fields. He never thought about proving anything for himself, or whether the manuscripts were ahead of time. Although he has never been to school, he once said that nature is his best teacher. This teacher of nature may have taught his descendants that his research is always beneficial to mankind.
