Anamorph of a classical column
Anamorphic images are distortions that appear normal when a correcting mirror distorts the distortion.
The meditative mind - free of the irregularities and accretions of thought and centred in the Perceiver - is like a polished, perfectly cylindrical mirror at the centre point of a distorted image. The world only appears to be a meaningless distortion of the Self, in fact, in the meditative mind, it is a true reflection of the Self.
