"It is most remarkable that the Mona Lisa is acknowledged to be the 'greatest' work of art in human history, yet nobody has ever understood it until the Mona Lisa Code was uncovered."

"The Mona Lisa is the depiction of a "Divine Soul" splitting into two parts. It is the soul that is shared between a mother and her unborn child."

"We know of no other person in history who was so engaged in searching for answers about the soul as Leonardo da Vinci. He used his combined knowledge of anatomy, painting, sculpture, and architecture to try to solve the mystery. He accumulated all the available knowledge from ancient and contemporary sources, took thorough notes, and sought out the most recognized experts of his time."

"The reason the figure of the Mona Lisa has no eyebrows, nor even eyelashes, is because facial hair was preempted by the unborn child. For the same reason, Da Vinci painted the facial structure in such a way that there is no indication that any teeth might exist behind the enigmatic smile."

"Janus, the Roman Sun-god with two faces, was Da Vinci's metaphor for the dual nature of the soul. What tied the soul and the Sun together for him is that he believed the Sun to be the manifest source of all souls. In his own words: For in the whole universe there is nowhere to be seen a body of greater magnitude and power than the sun. Its light gives light to all the celestial bodies which are distributed throughout the universe; and from it descends all vital force, for the heat that is in living beings comes from the soul."

"Leonardo da Vinci's apparent artistic challenge to himself was not to paint an ordinary human body, but rather the awesome wonder of a celestial soul in the midst of its sacred life-giving act of splitting into two separate souls. By using the duality of the god Janus as his inspiration, Leonardo developed a clever and uniquely suited theme for painting two corporeal bodies as one metaphysical entity."

"Even among Leonardo da Vinci’s other paintings, the Mona Lisa is in a class by itself. The painting represents a pinnacle in symbolic expression, and it is quite possible that no other work of art has ever incorporated such a complex interweaving of hidden meaning . . ."

It is easier to look within a crystal ball than peer outside a bubble.
