The lid covers the sarcophagus of the Mayan king Pacal inside the “Temple of Inscriptions”, in the Maya city Palenque. The lid is not the only richly decorated piece of stone that the Maya left to us. What makes it different, is that many people feel intuitive, that it has a very special meaning. It seems to tell some important story.
Most Maya artwork shows very clear and understandable sceneries. Some, however, are more like a puzzle, with unattached things and symbols floating around. The lid is the most mysterious example of this category.
While some of the attempts to decipher the lid sound quite adventurous, Cotterell found something tangible: The lid holds “hidden” images, which appear, when a second, mirrored image of the lid is laid onto it. The lid itself holds also the information, how to align the two images. In the book, Cotterell explains in detail, how he did it with two copies of the image on transparent sheets.
The right picture shows an example of the mirrored top edge, where the earrings of the Maya become eyes of terrifying heads.
Well, the Maya (and the later cultures too) knew mirrors. They have been found on many excavation sites. They were made from obsidian. But they supposedly didn’t had transparent sheets. Cotterell offers a interesting way out of this dilemma: Maybe, they could see and combine these mirrored views just inside their heads? Maybe, they had mental abilities, we no longer possess?

Susan have you read my posts regarding ‘chirality’?
Read the thread To BEE or not to BEE?

Apparently it is an answer to why you need to place a mirror beside the Palenque Lid to decode it…

Seems my theory scored another hit…. Rolling Eyes
A theory that will be found in that best seller in the making.
To be given away like the Niven Tablets, away for free.

Will I go missing too, like the Niven Tablets?
The Niven Tablets were ancient tablets found in the Valley of Mexcio, that talked about an ancient symbol called The KEY to Universal Movement.

This KEY is a secret worth keeping buried.
And THEY have till now.
TRUTH can never remain buried.
It is always resurrected.
Like the sun rising each and every morning…from the east…or was it once from the southeast?

The analogy of life…created using smoke and mirrors.

… ‘once the smoke of thermodynamics clears using chiral mirrors….what is revealed is chiral asymmetry.’

In some ways the LID of Palenque reveals itself as the mythical 5 ton stone of Pandora’s Box … hahaha



Thus the primordial Law of Thermodynamics says…
God can be neither created or destroyed, he can only be transformed into other forms of God. However there is a penalty for making vain graven images and it is called Entropy.



  1. The Maya subscribed to cranial deformation, or forehead flattening. That is the reason the could have mirrored views.

    It seems 2012 will be the end of an era.
