Da Vinci and Schrödingerâ??s Cat

by L. A. Braun

Curious about the time-capsule of secrets that had been hidden in Leonardo Da Vinci’s work? The initials of ‘SC’ in its various forms had been found all over his artwork. Often, the â??SC’ had been associated with a Lion. â??Schrödinger’s Cat’ (because â??Schrödinger’s Cat’ is an â??SC’) is a thought-provoking conundrum in which to explore the â??SC’s meaning. â??Schrödinger’s Cat’ is an entertaining paradox where a particle can be seen to exist in several different states simultaneously. Likewise, the ‘SC’ can be seen to be everywhere and yet it is nowhere at the same time. We explore the meaning of the â??SC’ by focusing on the Lions and other Big Cats in the ancient artwork as being â??Schrödinger’s Big Cats.’ Step aboard the enchanted mystery ship for a journey through the basics of the Philosophers’ Stone. Utilizing an extravaganza of vibrant illustrations from history’s most eminent artists, this book first highlights the fine points of the fundamentals and then acquaints the readers with the history and overall canons of the Philosophers’ Stone. The readers embark upon a tour through widely varying perspectives on the concept of the ‘SC’ initials and its manifestations. Readers will then explore the intricacies of the Art of alchemy, but what is even more important–by carefully piecing together the scattered clues, they will be brought nearer to the closely guarded message hidden deep inside the deliberately obscured texts. There is a message hidden in the picture word puzzles. Only this author exposes the true intent of the ancient alchemists, fishing out the actual concealed message from the muddy pond of hints and innuendo. The Art had been used for a very specific purposeâ??and readers are guaranteed to be surprised with the deciphered end result. This book is a fast paced thriller that decrypts real clues in the artwork and riddles of the Masters. Upending the apple cart on what should be found within the alchemy riddles, the author has ferreted the secret message out from the picture word puzzles. The message isn’t what anyone expected. In effect, the end result creates a paradigm shift on how these ancient works should be considered. Surprisingly, there had been hidden secrets in the artwork related to the concept of the ‘SC’ initials and its various manifestations.
