    Hi Neil,

    Thank you so much for the link ... The mapping looks familiar! I'm reminded too of Michelangelo's painting of God in the act of creating Adam, and how the divine intelligence in the form of the human brain -- something a scientist noticed a few years ago ...

    I think that would be consistent with the view of where man's uniqueness was seated, particularly during the Renaissance. Clever lad, both the painter and the scientist who spotted it. Sort of blows my mind that it was there in plain sight all those years of looking at that painting.

    Thanks Mr. Pete. Good conversation point. I'm sure it will shock some people I know as much as it did me here. All those DaVinci Code buffs will doubtless be pleased at how certain 'in-crowd' subtleties get layered into paintings.
