Of the Selling of Paradise: Leonardo to Genesis

As if to once again ascertain the genius of Leonardo da Vinci, here is one of his Prophecies:

Of the selling of Paradise: “A countless multitude will sell publicly and without hindrance things of the very greatest value, without licence from the Lord of these things, which were never theirs nor in their power; and human justice will take no account of this“.

Have I not heard this elsewhere? Ah yes! “You buy a piece of Paradise, you buy a piece of me!” Phil Collins would sing in the 1980s Genesis song “Jesus He Knows Me“. Conclusion? Leonardo was right, alas; while Genesis were more insightful than they probably thought!
