Because It's Time
On these pages I will be displaying curious items found
during mine and others near decade long journeys into the vast imaging
archives of the Mars Global Surveyor. During the course of these
explorations I have witnessed many paradigm shifting items and locations.
This goes beyond any Face, or Cydonia, it goes planet wide, because while
singularity may be coincidence, multiplicity defines a pattern. It is my
opinion that Mars was once much more than presently researching sciences can
account for. Somewhere between the artful and sometimes uncannily accurate
predictions of science fiction or serial comic writers, and the hard data
analysis of a scientific community too ready to dismiss the probability
there does stand a possibility, one which can be backed somewhat by
photographic evidence. I'll go ahead and say it, then maintain the tone
throughout, because it is the subject of this foray; that incredibly, there
may have been a prior civilization on Mars.
Because both the photo archives and world of Mars itself are
vast and varied, many who've attempted a look at it through the high
resolution images invariably may never have noticed some of these more
interesting and curious of items. I have the advantage of many years
experience processing MOC images and sorting out the Martian surface, and
over time have amassed quite a collection of oddities in result.
I intend to show them to you and in doing so, thoroughly make
you wonder what we really know about our brother planet. This will be
without much image interpretation, or crayon scribbling- mainly because I
think it clear that the images speak well enough for themselves.
I will say this in guideline; I recognize what is left of a
previously very living planet, with huge bustling metropolitan areas,
scattered here and there much like present day earth; along rivers, oceans,
and mountains, some replete with monolithic constructions and large areas
where mining activity is apparent. From all evidences nobody's lived here
for a long long time. All is now almost gone, bones left to the ages,
covered by dust and wrecked in all but the best preserved cases.
Occasionally and over time these remnants are exposed by fortuitous winds
and selected erosion processes to be revealed to our eyes through the irises of our
To see what Mars was, it is absolutely necessary to recognize
what it is showing us, chance have it we see. What it reveals to the adroit
and open minded observer is a glorious past with a termination of terror unimaginable. A fate we may one day
face ourselves. Global Catastrophe, at the peak of our technology and right
back to the stone age we go.
Mars, a planet with as much land surface as our earth A world that was, and is gone, a relic of destruction. A
lesson to be learned?
Whatever horrendous cataclysm it was that occurred to
Mars is beyond our knowledge at present, but whatever it was it buried
Barsoom. Who were these people, if they existed at all? Perhaps they were
like us, perhaps they were us, perhaps it's nothing at all, just strange
rocks and dunes. All of this may sound a bit Burroughs-ish, perhaps totally
absurd, but for a world named Barsoom, speculated so much on, and covered
with such oddities, this ought to be expected. It seems it doesn't think
much of what we think, regardless.
What we are left with is a question that is unanswerable at
present but one which imperatively must some day have a
one which will come only via further exploration...
What was Mars?
