A previous blog entry also began with this picture of an old one dollar bill showing a pyramid with an eye in the top of it. That blog entry posited that the pyramid with an eye in it was a representation of a human being, which was why it was considered important enough to print on money.

That previous blog entry led the reader through a series of pictures that purported to provide a reason for the inclusion of the eye at the top of the pyramid. That series of pictures began with the picture of the woman shown next.

It was pointed out that the pose the woman is holding creates a triangle using her forearms as the base of the triangle and her upper arms as the sides of the triangle.

Then the oval shape of her head was highlighted, which creates a pyramid with an “eye” in it.

The next picture compared the woman with the pyramid and eye superimposed on her body to the pyramid and eye on the back of the dollar bill.

Whether that actually is the inspiration for the pyramid with an eye in it on the back of the one dollar bill was left to the reader to decide for themselves.

It is always good to keep an open mind and never tell yourself you know the answer. Someone who knows an answer to something stops thinking about that something. That is a very bad habit to develop.

In the case of this example picture, someone who accepted that the woman’s head was the inspiration for the eye in the pyramid would never think to look for any other possible inspirations for the eye in the pyramid. They would miss the other equally possible inspiration for the eye in the pyramid, which is the circular area on the woman’s forehead.

Anyone who has been exposed to the concept of human beings having a “third eye”, would probably argue that this picture is a much more likely inspiration for the eye in the pyramid than the entire face is. There is only one object or feature within the circle, the circular area on the forehead, which is a better match for the single eye on the pyramid.

Someone claiming the circular shaped head was the inspiration for the eye in the pyramid would need to make a strong case explaining why the single eye in the pyramid was represented by a circle enclosing the head, which includes two eyes, a nose, and a mouth.

The match of four landmarks on the human face to the one eye in the pyramid just doesn’t feel right,  does it?

It can also be argued the circle on the forehead is more like the eye in the pyramid because the circle on the forehead is located in the upper part of the pyramid like the eye in the pyramid,
