Photo submitted by Meredith. Thank you, Meredith*S*
Teotihuacan is North East of Mexico city by an hour or so. The site was built over 1500 years ago, 200,000 people lived there and in 500 years all traces of beings were gone. Some suggest an alien nation.
The site has been written about by Don Miguel Ruiz in this first book The Four Agreements: “I go to take a Shamans walk and die to what I think is real and awaken to what most people think is Illusion.”
The photo is known as the portal. Where the shamans would leave their bodies and go to Heaven/another dimension.
Enjoy the view Peace, Meredith

Do you see the anomaly in the photo? Post what you think it is. Analyze the pic.
To the very right of the photo, there is a large shadow with a definitive outline. Possibilities for me include lighting, like you said Dax and matrixing. Matrixing or Pareidolia (pronounced pa-ri-DOE-lee-ə) is the situation where the brain tries to make sense of what it is seeing (or hearing) and interprets the pattern or data based on a combination of experiences, knowledge etc. to come up with an name for the image. I found that if I get out of my chair and step back a bit from the computer screen, I see the image that Meredith told me about. I don't want to say what the image is until everyone in the group has had a chance to comment.
I actually go with the shadow idea. If you look at the position of the sun, much of the figure (especially the left hand side, which seems to be the most prominent part of the outline) is produced by the shadows of the various wall segments (and the jagged, rocky nature of the walls makes it a prime candidate for bizarre shadow placements - this would be a landscape painter's worst nightmare). You can also see a lot of white splotches around the picture, indicating there may have been an exposure issue. Not to mention that the middle value (ie, dull) colors of the picture leaves little room for truly decent depth perception, allowing the combined shadows to kind of "pop" to the surface.
This, along with what Mary mentioned, pareidolia (which is responsible, like I mentioned at our last meeting, for seeing faces in clouds of smoke, or toast bread), lets us see a figure.
I'm sure if we look closely, we could pick out a whole slew of images we could see (much like looking at clouds), but the figure is unusually defined. I still believe it to be a product of the shadows, though.
I think that everyone has had time to check out the photo. Is it a giant, bird shadow? It does resemble Aztec/Mayan symbolism to be sure. Is it pareidolia? The integration of shadows on the dark stone could lead us to that interpretation, too. As for the story about the Shamans, it would be nice to believe it is true. Each of us must decide for ourselves.*S*
