Leonardo's Human Microcosm
[Image]
Leonardo da Vinci, The Vitruvian Man (1490)

By the ancients man has been called the world in miniature; and certainly this name is well bestowed, because, inasmuch as man is composed of earth, water, air and fire, his body resembles that of the earth; and as man has in him bones the supports and framework of his flesh, the world has its rocks the supports of the earth; as man has in him a pool of blood in which the lungs rise and fall in breathing, so the body of the earth has its ocean tide which likewise rises and falls every six hours, as if the world breathed; as in that pool of blood veins have their origin, which ramify all over the human body, so likewise the ocean sea fills the body of the earth with infinite springs of water. The body of the earth lacks sinews and this is, because the sinews are made expressly for movements and, the world being perpetually stable, no movement takes place, and no movement taking place, muscles are not necessary.--But in all other points they are much alike.

--Leonardo da Vinci, from the Codex Leicester in: The Notebooks of Leonardo Da Vinci, vol. ii, p. 179 (Jean Paul Richter ed. 1883)

Re: I am the universe-explained

Here Don,

I think you'll like this: Bohm's Theory of the Implicate Order

The theory of the Implicate Order contains an ultraholistic cosmic view; it connects everything with everything else. In principle, any individual element could reveal "detailed information about every other element in the universe." The central underlying theme of Bohm's theory is the "unbroken wholeness of the totality of existence as an undivided flowing movement without borders."

http://www.bizcharts.com/stoa_del_so.../plenum_3.html



In the above link there is a lot of info about the 'holographic universe'. I think you'd enjoy the rigor, the census, and the philosophy. Just a guess from your posts.

Best,
Jen

Thanks, Jennifer. Scanned it, got a gist, eyes rolled back in my head with some of it. Need to read more carefully. Good stuff, much obliged.
