You may be sitting in front of the television set, or curled up reading a good book, when all of a sudden out of the corner of your eye you see some movement a shadow, fleeting by. You shake your head, sure that you are imagining things and go back to your book or program. Suddenly, there it is again, that shadow figure.
Shadow people are becoming a frequent phenomenon witnessed by believers and skeptics of the paranormal. The mysterious sightings have been hot topics of conversation in paranormal chat rooms and on the popular radio show “Coast to Coast with Art Bell.”
The Wikipedia claims Shadow people “are supernatural shadow-like creatures of both modern folklore and traditional native American beliefs. According to folklore, they appear as dark forms in the peripheries of people’s vision and disintegrate, or move between walls, when noticed.”
Many folks erroneously believe a shadow that just went through a wall is a ghost. But those who have been in contact with ghosts or spirits and shadow people can tell the difference.
Thousands of years ago the great Mayan civilization built a pyramid named El Castillo (the castle, Temple of Kukulkan) to represent the folkloric legend of Snake Mountain, the place they believed all humanity came from.
El Castillo is nine stories tall, with a three-room temple on top and a stairway climbing each of the four sides. The Mayans were known as great mathematicians and astronomers and calculated each step and design of the building to represent everything they believed of their origins.
