“Wind is a floating wave of air, whose UNDULATION continually varies.”
– Marcus Vitruvious Pollio
Deep, isn’t it? Marcus Vitruvious (also known as Vitruvi, Vitruvius or Vitruvio) was a Roman author, architect, civil and military engineer during the 1st Century BC.
He is the one who said this line a long time ago, which generates the action of the heat upon moisture, hence creating a continued rush of wind.
His discussion of a perfect proportion in architecture and the human body, led to the famous rebirth drawing by Da Vinci of Vitruvian Man.
