There might be a thread on this already, but i was watching the news today and a saw a very interesting part about the Mona Lisa. They saw they've found the number 72 written on multiple parts of the painting. I find this almost creepy, the whole end of the game revolves around the number 72 and it being the code and it meaning god. It just got me thinking about what they teach in history class. Maybe theres actually something to these games. maybe it's not as far fetched as it seems. just my thoughts.


Cheers to all.

Considering everything you can read about Da Vinci, his love for codes, there is one explanation that I feel makes sense.

A theory which became popular among scientists all over the world was that man had the potential within itself for divinity, that God was within man. Many scientists, even back then, doubted the existence of a god as presented by the church, and supported this idea.

As such it is quite possible the number 72 (which meaning would be well known for a code-junkie like Da Vinici) represents the divinity within man (Mona Lisa).

As a side note I believe it is speculated that Mona Lisa is in fact a self portrait of Da Vinci as a woman. In which case it could be that Da Vinci supported an old/ancient idea of women as divine and that the process of turning himself into a woman would represent Da Vinci's divine transformation.

Does anyone else find it a little creepy that we are just now finding these secret codes from a Da Vinci painting, one that he kept with him for the remainder of his life. Not to mention that Da Vinci spoke of many prophecies of the world and he was a devout Christian. The 72nd book of the bible is revelation, the book that talks about the apocalpyse. kinda creepy

He was a devout christian...and yet. he was gay? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

The whole Da Vinci as a women/ancient ideal of women as divine sounds a bit Da Vinci Code to me! But I suppose the whole god within man thing is the most accurate explanation for it.

hey guys!
the number 72 stands for .. 1472
on that year a bridge in a town near my city fell down...then rebuit. And it was exactly like the one painted by Leo, along with the awesome view around!

Here's how it looks now

http://www.motoflipperando.it/risorse/vald%27aveto/ponte-gobbo.jpg

The bridge is called "The Ponte Gobbo" (‘hunchback bridge’) or Ponte Vecchio (‘old bridge’) which is a Devil’s Bridge of 280 metres (920 ft), which spans the river, named Trebbia, at Bobbio, which is a town near Piacenza, in north Italy.
thats the location http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif (One of) the number 72 discovered is also right under one arch of the painted bridge. Think...this is not by case!
Mona Lisa was probably posing in some hills up there... there are many!!
and thats where Leo painted her http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
About her identity... we don't know... she might be a woman living close to here... who knows!

Woman, was said to be the key to understanding divinity, the whole Mary Magdalene Theory I personally believe theres some truth behind what Leonardo believed... Anyone ever seen the mirror image of the Last Supper? or the whole idea presented in the Movie Da Vinci code about how the last supper was viewed actually, the whole idea that Magdalene was THE preferred apostle by Jesus, actually do it yourself and see the Last Supper image (the real one) It just sends shivers down your spine, sure maybe the whole Ancient Alien theory seems far fetched (at least the direction the games take it) but I'm more inclined to believe that over the lies of religion.

A group of Italian researchers last year claimed that Da Vinci had painted the number 72 in tiny figures under an arch of the bridge, a reference Glori said is to 1472, when the bridge was almost destroyed by flooding before being rebuilt.

But Silvano Vinceti, the head of researchers, said on Sunday he believed the number was instead a veiled reference to the mystical theories Da Vinci picked up on in Florence.

"There is no Dan Brown code here, just messages that reveal his thinking," he said. "Both the numbers seven and two are very important in the Kabbalism."

That still doesnt solve anything...

The Kabbalah is part of Jewish religion, Da Vinci is depicted as a devoted Christian, and 72 is still a reference to the 72 numbers of God
