The enormous number of the figures in the Parthenon, probably exceeding 500, of which 50 were colossal, and the size and complexity of the Athene, which was of gold, ivory, wood, and precious stones, standing 40 feet in height, make it impossible that these vast works could have been executed by the hand of a single artist. But Phidias is universally spoken of as the designer and presiding genius of the entire decoration; and, although some of the metopes are probably of an earlier school, the colossal groups of the pediments and the whole of the frieze have the stamp of one master mind.
I'm impressed..

Its amazing what one person can accomplish in a single lifetime.

Isaac Newton invented the study of and first scientific explanations for optical physicals, gravity and invented calculus. One man explained the motion of everything from a falling apple to the motion of the entire universe, how light works and a set of rules to accurately calculate speed and force.

Wow. I mean,... dude.

Think of all Howard Hughes created in a lifetime... ideas, shapes, power, convenience.
The art and scientific eye/mind of DaVinci?
Its all to easy to underestimate the power of one really amazing person just because of all the losers we are and/or see every day.
Heh.

Exactly! The human mind is so incredible. Imagine what we could all encounter if we opened it further.

Yay for classic Elton! It's not that I don't like him now, but his classic stuff (and, yes, the costumes!) just makes me grin.

And I loved The Muppet Show.

If I could time travel, seeing the Parthenon in its full glory would be near the top of the destination list. Right up there with Rome under Ceasar Augustus, Han Dynasty Beijing and The Globe Theater's first showing of Hamlet.
