Examples of relevant applications of the module
- Leonardo Da Vinco wrote that
"The most praiseworthy form of painting is the one that most resembles
what i imitates." Although much of modern art stands in disagreement
to this claim, there is no doubt that Leonardo's abilitiy to draw from observation
and to work out ideas on paper (from how water flowed to designs for submarines
and helicopters) was essential to his thinking process. When we look at his
drawings, we see his mind in action. http://www.mos.org/sln/Leonardo/
