Da Vinci was intrigued by the concept of the void as the source of all things —“Among the great things found among us, the existence of Nothing is the greatest. Its essence dwells as regards time between the past and the future, and possesses nothing of the present. This nothingness has the part equal to the whole and the whole to the part, the divisible to the indivisible and it comes to the same amount whether we divide it, multiply it, add to it or subtract from it.”DNA: Da Vinci code of spirituality
This is echoed in the Ishavasya Upanishad. “Om Purnamadah Purnamidam Purnaat Purna mudachyate, Purnasya Purna maadaaya, Purnamevaa vashiseyate.” Translating to “This (shoonya) is full, That is full/ From the full, the full is taken/ The full has come (from it)/ If you take full from the full, the full alone remains.”
A different translation of Poornamadah:Further reading from Shameem's blog
That (pure consciousness) is full (perfect); this (the manifest universe of matter; of names and forms being maya) is full. This fullness has been projected from that fullness. When this fullness merges in that fullness, all that remains is fullness.
