This website started as a way to post research for a book I was working on for the previous 11 years (various titles) but has since been abandoned, perhaps to be revisited in the future, but until then I am working on other project(s) which are upcoming and heavily influenced by my "da Vinci days" albeit focused more towards the future than the past - which I guess you could say is what I learned from Leo. "Think well to the end, consider the end first."
