This leads to discoveries such as symmetry, proportions and geometry. This was an important to the start of Scientific Revolution as the discovery of that contributed to the curiosity of the people then, who wanted to look at nature closely, thus invented new inventions such as telescope and microscope. With the new inventions, people were able to observe nature more closely and that led to the scientific revolution, as the scientific revolution was a period of new scientific discovery made possible with the inventions.

Thus, they were marvelous craftsman who also investigated the laws of perspective and optics. This led to the start of the scientific revolution, as people are getting more and more skilled and educated. Using the talents that both sides have, they were able to work out geometric methods for supporting the weight of enormous architectural domes, which is an improvement in Physics.
