First of all, I've to say that it was interesting (I've not the time for wath the second video about Nostradamus.)
Leo !!! One of my favortite. I've read and study a lot about him. I didn't know about the disappearing angel... But I think it's not a kind of secret message, just... a manifestation of his genious no ? Lol, I've got this paint to analyse during my mid-year exams. Even if the angel is quite.. differente from the rest of the composition, he is not the only anomaly. The Virgin had been also reworked ( her robe show strangely the form of her knees, it's seems that she has 3 lol !) but with the 'applat' (sorry I don't have the english word ), the retouch, the artist can make it disappear.
So it's sure, the X rayon can show strange things.
After, all his studies about the light and optics, the vision, and difractions, was resumed in his paint tecnhic of 'sfumetto' : the atmosphere perspective. The exact perception of our eyes, about the corporel heat and the contact with the atmosphere (particulary visible with his Saint Jean Baptiste )
or an other exemple, the blue horizon, indacting the far distance (you can observe yourself this phenomene everyday) Virgin of the Rocks :
Alright. By the way, in the exemple of reflection with this picture, showing an alien Virgin face, I think it's... hum stretching ? (please correct me if it's the wrong term : ) ). Because, there's is two versions painted by Leonard, and this one is the London Version.
So, alright it's just the angel's arms who moves, but I'm pretty sure that in the X rayon study they have also found differents elements.
+ If such an artist would have to hide a portait, knowing his drawing level, he would have better made it, no ? Ok ok, he's just an human xD
For the theory of time travel... I'm septic. If he had travel in our future, and seen all this technology... to redraw it after, and that is it said that our modern technology is in huge part born from his drawing... i'm maybe wrong, but isn't it paradoxal ?
If he had never 'travel', would have we today this technology ? I fear that I'm not clear, please pardon me x)
And the theory of aliens... I've also remarked in my sutdies all these weird 'holy clouds', ou simply clouds.
As many of us, I've also thought about UFO ! It's disturbing, and interesting. i've no doubt that the Renaissance Artists were very accurate of their environnement. So why not ? For that point, I verse in the theory, but there is always the risk to stuck our modern vision of things to an old vision (maybe it was just clouds. We could that sometimes, Nature is weird xD)
Rooooh I Love History of Art mixed with mysteries

Takes a certain person to do this, not many artists could or knew. Such an angle or bending of angles is required for the subtle to been seen as intended using mirrors or overlay. Perfect example:
Self-portrait in red chalk, 1512 to 1515
Real self-portrait in red chalk, 1512 to 1515
I have to agree that the episodes do a shoddy job of trying this. 'Junk' mirroring/overlaying/bending i do not tolerate.
There are many more, this is just one example on the most basic level.
