In the Sistine Chapel Michelangelo painted God reaching out to Adam. A friend (sleveless that is) told me something about this famous image that I never saw before. Doesn't it look like God is living inside a brain?

See art is always more truth than science will ever be, and that is why we need SciArt!
Nice post. I some additional info. to chew on about this.


At one time or another most of us have seen Michelangelo's "Creation of Man" panel from the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. When Michelangelo painted the chapel ceiling in 1512 he actually never named the various panels, instead, we of the so called modern age, have given them names. Dr. Frank Lynn Meshberger of St. John's Medical Center in Anderson, Indiana believes that the famous "creation" panel contains an image that has been misunderstood for 487 years--a brain that symbolizes God bestowing intellect on man. Over the previous half millennium scholars have interpreted the painting to mean God bestowed life on man. Dr. Meshberger however notes Adam's open eyes and believes this suggests that he's already alive. Dr. Meshberger researched Michelangelo's private life and found that the artist had deep religious beliefs and used to dissect cadavers to study the human form for his art. The following drawing illustrate how Dr. Meshberger identifies many of the brain's structures inthe image of God's swirling cloak and the surrounding angels.

There is also an interesting write up in the NY times, Oct. 10, 1990.

Doesn't it look like God is living inside a brain?

Is it possible this is the Philosopher's Mercury?
It might be a kidney. How Bacchus that would be.
