There's been some very intriguing developments about Mars going on, quietly of course, and interestingly enough, going on while all the theater about Snowden and the NSA have been transpiring. Consider this article for a moment (sent to me courtesy of Mr. S.D.):

NASA is getting ready to search for signs of life on Mars

There is a very arresting statement in this article, and it is this one:

"The goal of NASA's Curiosity rover is to determine if Mars was ever capable of supporting life. But the Agency's next rover, set to launch in 2020, could take things one giant step further. Given recent findings, says Jack Mustard, chairman of the Agency's Science Definition Team, 'past Martian life seems possible, and we should begin the difficult endeavor of seeking the signs of life.'" (Emphasis added)

Of course, the article goes on to make it clear that NASA is thinking in terms of past microbial life, but in an article with quotations as carefully phrased as possible, one cannot altogether exclude the idea that they may be ready to admit they're searching for some other kind of indicator of past life, such as artifacts or buildings.

In that respect, consider this most recent article by Mars anomaly researcher Richard C. Hoagland, and its rather stunning array of pictures:

It Only Takes ONE White Crow...

Now the picture with which we are concerned is the one Mr. Hoagland links at this point toward the end of his article:

"Here (below) is the most spectacular and best preserved 3-D version of this crucially significant "geometry" yet found -- a fully three-dimensional Reuleaux Tetrahedral Pyramid, discovered by the late Wilmer Faust on Mars Surveyor image E06002 -- taken July 7, 2001 in West Candor Chasma (one of the smaller, northern side canyons of the vast ~3000-mile-long "Vallis Marineris" system)." 

The link is:

Malin Space Science Systems

When this link opens, go to the image link beneath the thumbnail pictures of strips, that says

"View full-size image, processed but NOT map-projected (lossy JPEG, medium quality, rapid download)"

and click that image. What will open up is a thin strip, which you will have to enlarge, and then scroll down until you see the feature - clear and unmistakeable - on the picture, which is the tetrahedral shape seen on Hoagland's article. I have myself cropped this picture from the Surveyor picture linked above:

Mars Surveyor Teatrehdral Shape Enlargement

Mars Surveyor Teatrehdral Shape Enlargement

Had I not taken the time to search for this image and found it, I would have disbelieved it myself.

Now all scenarios aside, this image points to some serious philosophical questions, the most obvious of which are that it is either (1) "photoshopped", in which case, one has a government agency perpetrating a hoax, and in these days, that scenario is one that a great many people would entertain. I am not among them, but nonetheless, it's a possibility. On the other hand, one has the possibility that (2) it's real, raising even more difficult questions of how any sort of geological or natural process could account for it. I suppose that some intrepid scientismist might contrive to do so, but I for one just wouldn't buy stock in any such explanation.

Which leaves the possibility that someone built it. Leaving the questions of who, and how, to the types of speculations Hoagland argues in his article.

The trouble is, there are indicates of such extraordinarily large engineering all over the local celestial neighborhood, and that raises all those nasty questions from ancient human myths and texts about wars of the gods, cosmic wars, and so on. We needn't rehearse them here.

So what does all of this mean or portend. I'm not jumping on any disclosure bandwagons. What the NASA article appears to me to be is the type of limited hangout position that one would expect, for notably, after years and years of controversy between Face-on-Mars advocates such as Hoagland, Carlotto, Pozos, Brandenburg et al - and I would certainly number myself among them - and "it's just a trick of light and shadow" skeptics , such images with all sorts of strange artificial-looking "stuff" in them now seem to be released by NASA without any commentary whatsoever.

In other words, there is no longer even the attempt to head off the opposition at the pass with statements like "this may look artificial but it's really just a ______________ (fill in the blank with your favorite scientism "explanation" here). NASA may have just grown tired of having to "non-explain" things, or it may just be that the lack of such non-explanations in recent years is the story.

As for the Brookings Report that Mr. Hoagland mentions in his article, well, there's a lot more going on with that, but you'll have to wait for Covert Wars and the Clash of Civilizations to come out to see what that might be. But this non-explanation news may indeed be a part of it.

See you on the flip side.

    Where did the water go?

    I claim no personal knowledge of anything about NASA.

    But I have been convinced that nothing that NASA says (and I literally mean that NOTHING that NASA says) can be trusted. Anybody remember what NASA stands for? “Never A Straight Answer.”

    If NASA says they are “looking for life on Mars,” my first guess (and that is all I am doing: guessing) would be that “life” has nothing at all to do with what they are looking for. In fact, I would assume that they were looking for ANYTHING BUT life . . . .

    My question(s) regarding all this is-

    What’s the point? Why are they doing this? Is this being done for the benefit of mankind – or the benefit of a select few?

    What if they find life, or, evidence of previous life and previous civilizations up there?

    Will they tell us what they find? Will they show us what they find? Will they show us video evidence of what they find?

    If not, then what’s the point of even telling us they’re sending probes up there!!

    Signed –

    Tired of the rhetoric, tired of the bullshit!!

      Instead of waiting for nasa/seti/astronomers/govts to give you the info we all seek, why not open http://www.enterprisemission.com and see photos from various nasa Mars orbiters that show geometric structures, mechanical parts etc. that airbrushers omitted to airbrush.

      Open http://www.theyfly.com and see who lived on Mars before 196,000BC.

      If all this overwhelms you and you feel like screaming fraud, because Govts never tell lies,then note that planetary info. given by et to Meier, the Swiss conactee was published sometimes years before nasa’s findings.

        Thanks but I’m aware of Mr Hoagland’s website. I have to admit to losing a bit of faith in Mr Hoagland after the Elenin affair a while back.

        http://www.marsanomalyresearch.com is by far the best website online for pictures and info on the subject of ‘alleged’ artificial anomolies on that planet, and the Moon for that matter also – and the website owner, Joseph Skipper is a first class analyst.

    • ThomasT on July 20, 2013 at 12:01 am

      Why the silence? IT was agreed at Brookings in the late 50s, at the advent of manned planned space flight, that should any man-made artifacts be found in our Solar system, that information would NOT be allowed to be made public for fear of religions collapsing, mass hysteria etc.

      Much to read here.

        My apologies, you seem to have taken my post literally 🙂

        I’m aware of the Brookings Institute’s ‘white paper’ given to NASA. My initial post was meant as a tired, sarcastic repsonse to what I believe is the obvious bulls**t we’ve been told for generations.

    Will somebody explain the dog and pony show of the past fifty years Also the barely living man space program and Orion as Apollo re dux. As for Mars this has been a hide and seek game for the last thirty seven years waiting for the fat lady to sing.

    • DownunderET on July 18, 2013 at 3:32 pm

      Hi Marcos:
      Yes, this dog and pony show by NASA has just about run it’s course.
      You only have to read a couple of books, Cosmic War, Dark Mission and the Cydonia Codex to see that NASA and it’s public relations department have been growing noses for way too long.

      I ask why they didn’t land the Surveyor snooping tractor at Cydonia, eh nothing to see here and move right along OR there is no parking lot at Cydonia.

      As always “Never A Straight Answer”

    Just a thought. Another pyramidal anomaly but … I just had a thought.

    In Egypt most of, if not all of the pyramids have some sort of temple complex associated with a particular pyramid. However, these supposed pyramids on Mars do not. In fact, if these genuinely were Egyptian-like pyramids of some sort why aren’t there any more structures nearby? Would the “martians” just build such structures in the middle of nowhere without any supporting infrastructure if say for instance, the pyramids were temples of some kind??

    And why aren’t these pyramids 4 sided if the pyramids on this planet were supposed to be remnants of the memory of a once great civilization on Mars? Why couldn’t 3 or other sided pyramids be built here? Was it something to do with gravity or what?

    Just some devils advocaat type questions to mull over. I am still not convinced that these structures are not geological features of some kind, and I gave up on Hoagland having any sizeable amount of sanity a long time ago.

    Still when you see these things, they do make you think.

    If we ever find life on Mars (and I believe it probably is there), I think it will be either very strange, and not unlike anything we would ever think or dream of … or it will be microbial.

    Still you never know … but for now, I think these structures are geological, and no matter how much Hoagland says they are true artificial structures I will remain extremely unconvinced.

    But as always I maintain the right to be horribly wrong.

    Onwards and upwards

    I’m personally much more concerned with what the heck is going on here!

    But Mars has been on a slow non-disclusure drip-feed since that first NASA Viking experiment way back when which tested positive for signs of life but which was promptly buried because–well, it came back positive for chemical reactions indicating life processes.

    Luckily, most people are to dim to register all this stuff and the fiction can continue to be maintained–about Mars–and just about everything else, for that matter.

    Beginning to rhyme with Ripley’s “Believe or Not”.
    Like Mark Twain’s, History may nor repeat itself, but it damn sure rhymes(something to that effect).
