One night Leonardo has another invention.. the most umportant of all

NOT a real thing but...An Abstraction!
He invented not as having figures of data on a grid but to have a description in a cell.

Before  If I need to have 3d Cubes
I had to repeat the description 3 times.

Now I can have only Once! as a description

ann then to call the Description!

Cube as individual entitiy

Cube as Named Description / description

Five Cube as Instances  fo the Description Object 
i can add 
A. Point of insertion in x y z space
B. Scaling in the x, y z axes
C. Rotation in the  x, y z axes

HUgE consequences.

Leonardo These time made a trip To spread the word:
and he stopped at Carnegie-mellon University in the second halh of Sixties

and met
Chuck Eastman

Chuck start to evangelize a first group of pupils
among them

Chris Yessios
Yeuda Kalay
Ullrich Flemming
John Gero
And Collegue Bill Mitchell

Who created other pupils among which

Marcos Novak
Gerhard Schmitt
and Nino Saggio

who Spread the word...

the idea was to create a 3d database
A instatiated description of a word that contains at the same time

Geometrical 3d information but also
Filed of quantitive data (such as in a spread sheets
or descriptive fields such as in a data base.

the Great thing is that conceptual is a MODEL
allows such as in a Spreadsheet a WHAT IF organization

Because it is Nested 


dita mano avambraccio Braccio
Fingers Hand Forearm Arm

It Moves and it is organized Hierarchically

Moving a branch will move the other related branchesw in the upper part.
a modification of a descriptio of the original objected (or to any other part of the trees will PASS ON to all the other connected branches!

And In time was clear that I can add many other field beisde the gemetrical description .. So trat I will start to have aì what I call A BIM a Buolding Information system


Chapter "Model" in the book

Create a simple Hierarchical Model conceptually appked to aniene Flows if possible
