Leonardo Da Vinci, another brilliant mind that is so famous it seems pointless to present him. Yet while his “Mona Lisa” could be the most famous painting in the world, Da Vinci was a lot more than a brilliant painter. Inventor, drawer, writer, sculptor, engineer, mathematician, and so much more. Da Vinci is the ultimate example of someone who was truly interested in anything with a neverending curiosity and imagination.
For me, exploring Da Vinci is about pondering about the future of humanity, a lot more than other for other human beings.
Will there ever be another Da Vinci?
I deeply believe that there will never be another Da Vinci. Not because there can’t be someone as smart as him, but rather because knowledge has become so complex and too broad to be fully grasped by a single person. We live in an age where progress and great inventions aren’t the results of a few brilliant minds, no matter how brilliant, but the combination of the work of millions of individuals.
Because of that, I also believe we don’t need another Da Vinci. 500 years ago, the majority of humanity was unable to read. Today most people can do much more. I deeply believe that it’s ordinary people who can and will solve together humanity’s big issues.
