5. Why do we know that the moment of the creation of this image is beyond our ordinary understanding of time and space?
Study the following pictures:
Note: The negative face of the volunteer is in between the blood marks that were originally on his temples and cheeks and now appear to be positioned in the hair. Compare this to the shroud image above. © 1998, Gilbert R. Lavoie
Shroud face, positive image
Note the blood in the hair......... © Holy Shroud Guild
Mans face in a lying position

Blood marks painted on a mans face through the cutout .
Note that the blood marks that you see on the shroud hair were originally on the temples and cheeks of the man who was under the cloth.© 1998, Gilbert R. Lavoie
Cutout superimposed over the negative of a mans face
The above pictures tell us 4 things about the shroud.
1. The cloth draped and wrapped around the face of a three dimensional man.
2. The blood marks were a contact process and moist clots on the face being soaked up by the draping cloth.
3. The image is not a contact process. If it were, the sides of the face (cheeks) would be out where the hair is and would result in a grotesque flattened face.
4. The blood marks were formed when the cloth draped around the face; however, image formation seems to be an entirely separate event. It seems as if the draped cloth was then flattened out and that this negative image was formed in between the blood marks that were originally on the cheeks and temples of the man who was under the cloth. This is one way of understanding it, but is this what happened?
These images bring us to understand that image formation is more complex than we ever before imagined. Give it some thought and you will find that the mechanics of cloth to body as well as the process or energy required for image formation defies understanding in our world of height, width, depth, and time. It is a fascinating enigma that should capture the imagination of all those who seek to understand how this happened.
