This is the preview of the E Book that will be out for sale in October 2014.

This book chronicles the results of almost a decade and a half of research that began in 2000 with a child’s drawing and that in turn led to Leonardo da Vinci’s incredible hidden images and the uncovering of a massive conspiracy. The images led back to ancient Egypt and India, and we believe further back to lesser-known civilizations. Our research even led us forward to Europe through the ages, to the new world, and even to present day America. This non-fiction book chronicles the rather haphazard path of the discoveries. The findings were made by following discoveries and ideas, as they were uncovered.

The book depicts and explains what we understand to date about the secrets of a massive conspiracy and the part Leonardo and other major artists played in that conspiracy. Many hundreds of never-before-seen hidden elements and images created by Leonardo and others were found. It explains how these secrets and exquisite images were created, and sheds some light upon the intended messages they portray. It depicts only a few of the more important findings from a wide variety of conspirators, but especially from Leonardo da Vinci .

This is a basic primer laying the foundation, detailing the techniques, methods and processes Leonardo and others created, and indicates the basis for the conspiracy. The intense research covers complex subjects requiring a basic understanding of the methods and rationales behind the artworks, as well as the illusions. So please recognize that the technical explanations are required so that you as an observer can fully understand and appreciate the hidden work shown in later chapters.

We believe Leonardo was in possession of a wide variety of information including some hinting at the origins of civilizations going back tens of thousands of years. It is an incredible story of genius, alternative history, organized secrets and the quest for knowledge, truth and the freedom to think, learn and progress in spite of the entrenched mandated doctrine and constraints placed on society by the establishments of the era.

When the project began, we had no idea where the research would lead. We were merely trying to determine if Leonardo placed secrets in his paintings. We certainly had no idea that we would discover references to ancient civilizations. We now believe that the hidden images and discoveries will eventually correlate with archeological findings, and that the images created by Leonardo and others will contribute to the rewriting of art history, especially in the Renaissance.

The Conspiracy is all about having the freedom to see the world and its origins and history as we think Leonardo perceived and presented them. It is about the advancement of knowledge, freedom of ideas and the freedom to worship a supreme being without interference of those individuals and organizations that mandate themselves to be the sole interpreters of God’s will. The conspiracy sought to maintain continuity of ancient knowledge and to counter the ability of the religious elite, which included the Vatican in Leonardo’s time, to be able to control the hearts and minds of vast numbers of believers, accumulate great wealth and concentrate power within the exclusive elite organizations. In short, the book is about the fight to control the progress and destiny of Humankind and about competing “TRUTHS”.

Leonardo’s work and the creations of other artists present the elements of opposing ideologies, represented symbolically by light versus dark and other artistic mechanisms. The goal was to promote enlightenment rather than blind acceptance of dogma or mandated beliefs and to encourage people to think for themselves without censorship by the church. Above all, the conspiracy sought to maintain an unbroken record of “true” knowledge of the order of the world and origins of civilization as passed down by the ancients.

Leonardo da Vinci was the central and pivotal figure of his time in the largest and longest running conspiracy in all of recorded human history. Those in the conspiracy considered themselves seekers of “light”, keepers of the flame of knowledge and truth. They felt it was their responsibility to seek enlightenment, find and protect knowledge and “truth” as they understood it and to preserve it for future generations despite the efforts by the most powerful institution in history to enforce its own doctrine.

This research contributes insight into the origins of the conspiracy and ultimately shows the positions of the opposing forces arrayed against each other.

One of the definitions of conspiracy is “to agree to act in secret”, especially against the prevailing establishment.

The conspiracy came about because of the “war” between progressive thinking versus religious ideologies that has spanned civilizations and empires and that has continued for thousands of years. The war has varied in intensity, has been waged among various factions in many civilizations. The conflict has ranged widely from outright combat and persecution, resulting in great disruption, death and destruction, to the guerilla warfare of Leonardo and his brethren, waged with brush and paint, stone and mortar and organized ritual and rite. Each side has continuously sought to control the destiny of the civilization in its era and make their ideology predominate.

Even in its more clandestine /secret phases, as in Leonardo’s time in the renaissance, the stakes in the war of competing ideologies and control of knowledge and civilization had deadly consequences for those conspiring against the all powerful establishment, represented by the Vatican.

The discoveries involve many fraternal orders including the Masons and Knights Templar and deal with many very diverse subjects. The path of discovery was not sequential, and the book does not follow a straight line, in terms of either time or geography. The research wandered forward and backward through history and all around the world. Ultimately, the book provides only a cursory review of a few of Leonardo’s works. The scale and amount of information found in over a decade of research is far too complex and voluminous to cover in-depth in one book.

The many thousands of findings are interconnected and represent ideas and concepts that touch upon many of the world’s people to varying degrees. Deciphering some of Leonardo’s secrets has led to the discovery of this amazingly wide and deeply entrenched “conspiracy”. On the surface, the discoveries appear random. However, they have turned out to be anything but random. They are part of the most complex “jigsaw puzzle” ever created. This is a complex, fascinating and controversial subject. It has been difficult for us to determine what to present and what to leave out. Leonardo’s contention that “all things are interconnected” is both accurate and prophetic and we believe the majority of the discoveries are still waiting to be found and their meaning to be discussed.

We encourage you to study the history and art created and portrayed by Leonardo and others from a new vantage point, as we think Leonardo intended. We hope you find it as inspiring and exciting as we have!

On The Path of a Master – An Awakening

It all began in a diner in Newburyport Massachusetts in 2000. Michael Domoretsky, a professional artist and stone worker, was sitting in a booth having breakfast with a friend. A young girl who was perhaps ten years old, with a cryptic little smile, was sitting in an adjacent booth. She drew and presented a crayon picture to Michael. The drawing was of a dog on the left side of the page wearing a bow tie, and a cat on the right side with a heart floating above it and beams of light from the sun shining on the dog and cat.

This drawing triggered the thought that the two people represented by the dog and cat were in a way mirrored. The little girl had the insight to draw a picture of two very different people, showing the emotions of that moment but expressing it symbolically. It was a wonderful drawing. Though simple, the drawing was complex because it represented a number of different symbolic concepts in one image. Her choices of color, position, and symbols were interestingly appropriate and the picture had a sense of emotional depth and hidden meaning to it. Though the little girl would undoubtedly not have had the slightest hint of the technical aspects of what she had created, she had produced an allegory. (An allegory uses symbols or fictional characters to express a hidden meaning about truths, ideas, philosophies or actions).

The importance of the allegory as a device or means of expression is that concepts, subjects, characters or events can be placed in a story, poem, painting, edifice or drawing and represent or symbolize completely unrelated underlying, unstated ideas and concepts secretly. Allegories were used widely throughout history and it was woven into all forms of artwork.

Coincidentally upon returning home from Newburyport, there was a television news segment and photo of the legendary Mona Lisa, with the age old questions of: who exactly was Mona Lisa? What relationship did she have to Leonardo da Vinci? … And of course the big questions…. What was her true name, the one Leonardo knew, or intended it to be, and what was hidden behind her elusive smile?” It was that cryptic little smile on the Mona Lisa that became the challenge and ultimately the invitation to study Leonardo’s works from unusual perspectives.

The thought occurred that these questions have been asked for centuries. The segment indicated that some thought it was a blended picture or self-portrait, half female and half of Leonardo da Vinci, a duality. The humor in the idea led to a flash epiphany. All of a sudden the vision of the little girl artist from the diner with her beautiful cryptic little smile led to a vision of the Mona Lisa as an allegory and the concept of duality. The idea formed of the Mona Lisa having two distinctly different halves, each with its own meaning. It became intriguing. It was as though the little girl and her allegory of the mirrored emotions were leading to a perception of the Mona Lisa in a different light….. the disparate background, each side strangely inconsistent, led to a cascade of thoughts about dualism and mirrored expression …. It was an exhilarating experience! This one vision began a quest to research everything that could be found about Leonardo da Vinci and his masterpieces, and to find out if they truly held the secrets many suspected.
