About the Life Hack for Polymaths logo
The vitruvian man (As can be seen in the sketches of polymath Leonardo Da Vinci) represents the quintessential polymath and the convergence of Art and Science. The square within a circle represents the human and the divine.
The left portion of the figure is rendered in curvilinear lines (or organic shapes) to represent the humanity of the person capable of ebbing and flowing, expanding and contracting, or yielding to the forces of both the physical and spiritual universe
The right portion of the figure is depicted in rectilinear lines (or geometric shapes) to represent the unyielding human spirit determined and relentless in its pursuit of knowledge, the integration of knowledge and all other disciplines and the practical application of such.
The color of the perfect circle is carmine (one of the red colors of Ancient Egypt) In color psychology, red represents strength, energy, and passion. The circle represents life and one’s self.
The color of the perfect square is prussian, a shade of blue, because it represents intelligence and logic (the mind) The square suggests rationality and order.
