Hi Everyone,

I am compiling data concerning the "architectual" realities of an
extensive region with many Mayan ruin constructions of miniaturized

Please find attached a jpeg photo made in Mexico's State of Quintana
Roo. The construction is Mayan.

It is the beginning of a tunnel. The dimensions of its entrance
measures 20"(left) x 20" (top) x 20" (right) x 24" (bottom). On the
left side of the entrance is the feint image of a green,
semi-translucent (sorry) ruler standing upright between the ground
level and the first ledge at about midway up the left side of the
entrance. The almost square entrance graduates imediately to a
passageway with a korbeled ceiling. The height of the interior
pasagaeway (to the peak of the korbel) may be 21".

The fill-flash and zoom of a second photo which I have not been able
to scan yet, reveals either a chamber or corridor with an
exceptionally finely finished far wall at the end of the tunnel. The
length of the tunnel has not been measured, as it wasn't until the
fill-light of the second photo revealed an end. I can estimate the
length to be about 30 to 40 feet.

First: What ideas might you have concerning its reason for being?
Second: Are any other such tunnels known? Third: How could it have
been built? The tunnel is imbedded in solid limestone which does
not appear to have ever been broken up so as to be able to build it
from the outside in.

While I have my own, any ideas and, even, serious speculation would
be most welcome.
