apok04 writes: For those that can't get enough Da Vinci conspiracy stories, Discovery News reports that Giovanni Maria Pala, an Italian musician and computer technician has discovered new meaning in Da Vinci's "The Last Supper". In a book (Google Translation) due to be released today in Italy, Pala describes how he discovered a "hymn to God" composed of the hands and bread loaves in the famous painting. When he first played the notes, they sounded terrible. It wasn't until he realized that they should be played right to left (a common Da Vinci writing style) that they sounded "like a requiem". In addition to the music, Pala found what appears to be a sentence written in ancient Hebrew: "bo nezer usbi," which means "with Him consecration and glory."
