Da Vinci is certainly one of the most fascinating people that we have evidence of.
I don't think I can translate the level of this individual's diversity in knowledge in today's world.
Nor can I think of anyone who demands such accolade as a result of their accomplishments.
Today we can only really name people who are discoverers of a few concepts, or who have done great things in various fields of science. Or we can talk
about great artists in the last century that created memorable paintings or drawings, or even cartoonists etc.
But this guy apparently was all of those things combined give or take.
You remember how there is a lot of groups who claim that Shakespeare's collection was actually "secretly created" by a large amount of people but
put under one name? I don't think it has been proven fully but there are a few compelling aspects to it that make you think twice about stuff like
Da Vanci is accredited with so many mind blowing things that I sometimes wonder the same thing about him.
But then again, I suppose in the age before infotainment they had a lot of time on their hands, so maybe it is possible.
