Da Vinci Mona Lisa Mystery; Real Secret Codes Discovered By Theimproper, on December 12th, 2010
Leonardo Da Vinci’s mysterious Mona Lisa has just gotten even more intriguing. The Italian genius apparently painted tiny numbers and letters into the eyes of the enigmatic painting, but their meaning is unclear.
The 500-year-old Renaissance masterpiece has long puzzled art historians, from Mona Lisa’s wry smile to the identity of the woman in the painting. Some believe it is Da Vinci himself, painted as a woman.
As for Da Vinci, he was a fan of riddles and secret codes and his paintings formed the basis of the best selling fictional work “The Da Vinci Code.” [ad#Google350x250]
The book by Dan Brown and the 2006 movie based on it starring Tom Hanks claimed the Mona Lisa contained secrets about the life of Jesus Christ.
The book postulated that Christ had a child with Mary Magadelene and established a blood line that exists to this day.
The real codes in Mona Lisa’s eyes may not be quite so consequential, but they are mystifying, nonetheless, not only for what they may mean, but also because of that fact that Da Vinci was able paint them so small.
The letters and numbers cannot be seen with the naked eye.
Italy’s National Committee for Cultural Heritage said the symbols were detected through high resolution images of the painting.
“To the naked eye the symbols are not visible, but with a magnifying glass they can clearly be seen,” said Committee President Silvano Vinceti.
“In the right eye appear to be the letters LV which could well stand for his name Leonardo Da Vinci, while in the left eye there are also symbols, but they are not as defined,” he said.
“It is very difficult to make them out clearly but they appear to be the letters CE or it could be the letter B. You have to remember the picture is almost 500 years old so it is not as sharp and clear as when first painted,” he added.
In the arch of the bridge in the background the number 72 can be seen or it could be an L and the number 2, he said.
The clue to the codes was found in a 50-year-old book about the painting that was discovered in an antique shop. It mentions the codes and symbols, Vinceti said.
“It’s remarkable that no-one has noticed these symbols before and from the preliminary investigations we have carried out we are confident they are not a mistake and were put there by the artist,” Vinceti said.

How Depression Differs From Sadness Tuesday, January 18, 2011 How Depression Differs From Sadness
Depression is a term, often used in the wrong context, by every one. Depression is often wrongly thought as a synonym for sadness. But it is not so. Depression is not just sadness. It is more than that. It is a medical illness.
So how does a seasonal sadness in a person differ from depression? The main difference between the two is sadness goes away after a certain amount of time but depression persists. In depressive disorder a person has a depressed mood or a loss of interest in daily activities consistently for at least a fortnight. A sad person can cope with life whereas a depressed one feels hopeless and he feels he can't take it anymore.
To a person who is depressed, the most uncaring and insensitive phrase you can utter is "to snap out of it". When you say this to a depressed person, you not only get him mentally more depressed but also leave him keep wondering what the real problem with him might be. The most important thing you have to understand when dealing with depressed people is that if a person diagnosed with depression can snap out of it, then probably a person with heart decease or kidney failure may as well snap out of it.
Many people think that people with depression are weak and they never try to come out it or they are just acting. All these assumptions are wrong. On the other hand depression is a serious mental illness, which if left untreated, can even lead to suicide. So never go easy if any one you know is suffering from it. It is highly curable and the first thing you need is to consult with a doctor. Most of the people react well to the treatment and get better as the days pass by. So next time, when you feel like yelling at a depressed person, hold it. Try to help him with the right treatment.
