During my trip to Teotihuacan, I visited the museum. These are photos of artifacts that were recovered from Teotihuacan. A couple of things to note include that any bearded face is an anomaly. The people who lived in the Americas before the arrival of the Spanish did not have facial hair. However carvings exist all over Central America showing ancient “gods” with various kinds of beards and mustaches. Some also have round eyes instead of almond shaped. Some have oriental eyes instead of almond shaped. The elongated skulls photographed here I have also observed in other museums and archeological offices throughout Central America. On close examination I don’t believe they are all the result of binding the skull at a young age and forcing the skull to take the elongated shape. Maybe some were created that way to imitate the elongation. But I think the elongation originally was a natural shape of a certain population that is now extinct. This skull shape inspired me to create the Trahl race in Second Sight. I made the name up….or at least I thought I did. Later I discovered that the name already exists and was the name of a shorter race of people who came from the far north. Exactly as I depicted Aizah and her people who served the Nephillim under the ice cap in Second Sight. A lot of what went into the book series has been things I thought up and later learned actually was true.
Teotihuacan is an immense city complex containing two of the largest pyramids in the world. We are standing on the Pyramid of the Moon and off to the left is the Pyramid of the Sun. The grand plaza is surrounded by many pyramid platforms that are the correct height to escape localized disasters such as lava flows. The area is surrounded by volcanos. As an architect I noticed the smaller pyramids have common features: Wide steps allowing many people to climb simultaneously. Stepped platform shape providing stability against significant lateral forces such as water, mud slides, lava flows, and rolling boulders. Location of the site is in a flat plain far from any mountains. This plaza was full of water and must have created a beautiful sight at night reflecting the stars. The pyramids would have seemed to float in the heavens.
Pyramid of the Sun to the left. The upper band was added by the archeologist who restored the pyramid because he felt it made it look better. I would like to smack him upside the head someday.

Notice the following photos showing facial hair and round eyes. These are examples of possible cultural contact with European cultures prior to the time of Columbus.
Notice that this “god” has six fingers. I am on the hunt for these particular examples and often find them. It reminds me of a giant mentioned in the Bible. He was not Goliath. But he may have been of the same race because they both lived in Gath :
