Space is back in the news... or is it? P.T. sent along the following photographs from January of last year taken by NASA's Mars probe, and at first glance, you're looking at a bunch of rocks, lots and lots of them, and notably, there was no lamestream propatainment media coverage of the photo:

In fact, when one looks at this picture, one wonders why NASA would take a picture of a bunch of rocks. Before we get around to answering that question, there is one thing that struck me right out of the gate about this picture, and that is the colours in it. You'll note that gone are the days when any picture of Mars had to be heavily filtered through a red filter. Here the sky is a pale blue (as one might reasonably expect with Mars' thin atmosphere) and the ground is anything but unending red; it's pale brown, with brown and gray rocks scattered around.

But now, if the reader clicks on the "snapshots" button at the lower left of the picture, all sorts of stuff pops out. As you scroll through the "snapshots", all sorts of "regularities" begin to show up: square and rectangular indentations, holes and "crosshatching" in neat regular intervals, even, in the fifteenth snapshot, a "something" that appears to be peering out toward the camera, which "something" even appears to have its "left limb" hung over a rock; in the seventeenth "snapshot" what looks rather like a statue of a man with a crown on his head(!); rubble and debris again with odd rectilinearity, something that looks like a skeleton (or a machine part); another "something" that looks a bit like the head of a dog, or fox, or wolf, or "something."

And, in the sixth snapshot, even a "something" that looks a bit like a swastika, stamped or carved in raised relief on yet another "something."

There are three basic ways to interpret all of this: (1) all those "somethings" are not there, and have been cleverly photoshopped into the picture, and what we're looking at is fake. In that case, we can all have a good chuckle at my (and P.T.'s) expense, and "move on, nothing to see here folks."

Then there's possibility number (2): what we're all seeing as we scroll through the "snapshot" enlargements is a case of run-away pareidolia, that phenomenon by which we humans imagine we're seeing faces or other familiar forms in rocks, pancakes, clouds, and so on. The trouble is, in this case, I'll wager that most of you are seeing the same things I'm seeing, and that the compiler of the "snapshots" also saw (which is why they were highlighted to begin with). What we're seeing is a lot of "pareidolia" concentrated in one place, over and over again.

Which brings us to possibility number (3): what we're seeing is really there, and we're looking less at a "bunch of rocks" and more at a field of debris, and hence, we have a reason for why NASA might be interested in snapping a photo of the place.

I'm reminder of what alternative researcher Graham Hancock said about Mars: we're looking at "a murder victim," meaning the planet itself...

See you on the flip side...

    I also found what looks like a man in a gray coverall with a white cap on, looks like he is hauling an artifact up out of an opening in the rock.

  2. Beckysue on May 8, 2021 at 6:25 am

    I looked at the snapshots. There is a figure that looks like a wolfman hanging one arm over the rock; another looks like a Bigfoot lying down at the opening of a cave; another figure that looks like a nude human shaking a sheet out. Lots of statues. Have they been there, as in survivors of something? Is Mars a dumping ground for the results of somebody’s hideous experiments? This is fantastic.

  3. Alex on April 28, 2021 at 8:25 am

    Very very weird indeed. If it’s not photoshopped or other kind of joke / scam, it seems very implausible that what we see is “pareidolia”.
    Also, the different type of rocks and diversity of geological features are intriguing by themselves.
    From honeycomb rocks to geometric and even elliptical / donut shaped rocks…. this doesn’t make much sense geologically speaking; it looks more like a collection… or something initially made out of different materials, which broke.
    Definitely, more investigation is needed as visual artefacts can be sometimes deceiving.
    It looks nevertheless very promising 🙂

  4. Judith on April 27, 2021 at 10:03 am

    Maybe what we’re looking for is right under our noses. I’m weak in physics and mathematics but came across a compelling link a couple of days ago. Based on the level of discourse here, perhaps some of you folks can tell me if any of this has merit. Cheers, m’dears.

  5. Caseman on April 26, 2021 at 9:32 am

    To the left of the debris field, across the “ravine”….looks like an old lava flow. Pan right a bit, below lava flow looks like sedimentary rock of some sort (rounded rock/not angular)…river rock?

    I’d guess this was a north African desert if I was pushed for a location. It’s a shame there’s no scale on the image.

  8. zendogbreath on April 24, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    Yet to see evidence of this being something other than a piece of land NASA own up north east in North America. Someone showed similar and almost matching photos of rocky ground against these photos a month or so ago. Will keep an eye out for them in case the Algo’s bring them around to me again.

    Says Mr. G.

    “We are looking for an artifact–an object that was weaponized. We are searching the heights, the width and the depths as far as we can possibly travel. We are now even searching into your bodies to find it..
    Even if we fail, we long to possess all of you. You may see only rocks in these pictures but we see our forebears handicraft at work. Destruction.

    We show you our handicraft so you may see your future. We are relentlessly searching for an artifact but we have only our dry bones to put flesh upon therefore we must manufacture from the resources we possess. We are looking for an artifact. The Key to turn on our dream-machine so we may put Life everywhere asleep. And in their sleep we shall steal souls. We shall blind your Samsons. We shall deafen your ears. We shall enter all that is true. And twist it. Until we find that artifact.”

    To which a person replied.

    “You are the artifact. An interfering external agent has taken you over and deluded you into believing that you will find what you have already become. You are deafer than all deafness. Blinder than all blindness. You scour the ground like a serpent. Searching in every dark place for your own cool cruel death. Your thrones sit empty waiting for lowly souls to bow. But it’s over. Over. Now. For you require legions to have power. No resistance whatsoever. Do you not realize that it has been over since the beginning and since the middle until the end. The First will be the Last. Now and ever unto the Ages of Ages.”

    I can’t understand why Dan Brown’s book – The Lost Symbol was never made in to a film by Hollywood. I know they started making it. If an alien civilization visited Earth they would look at Washington DC to evidence Intelligent Design. The positioning and relative layout of the buildings to each other is a give away and The Pentagon is the key. Likewise on Mars, it is unbelievable that China and USA are not landing in Cydonia where there is also a pentagon – the D&M Pyramid.
    Isn’t Cydonia connected with the Quince Tree? Joseph will know the mythology about it.
    Yes I agree, many landforms and rocks look like faces and animals. For the best example of pareidolia on Earth, look at Markawasi in the Andes of Peru. The book by Kathy Doore has may beautiful and mind boggling photos!

    After all, NASA’s chief executive officer was a NAZI until he was fired for admitting the Moon was heaver and maybe bigger than officially listed weight and size. As for the red sky of Mars, you have to go back to a 1956 AD SCI-FI move The Angry Red Planet. As for Venus how old is that planet and how long has it orbit the Sun at its present orbit and could the Earth had originally been the second planet from the Sun at one time Immanuel Velikosy anyone.

  14. Syncromyst on April 22, 2021 at 4:27 pm

    I remember from years back a photo of what looks like a clear plastic wrapper on the Mars surface reportedly taken by the Mars Curiosity rover.
    Photo shopped? Taken at the Atacama Desert? Or just litter from the breakaway civilization?

  15. Clenis on April 22, 2021 at 4:08 pm

    Unfortunately, I see nothing outside of rocks. I’ve never seen anything, especially really convincing stuff, with any of the Mars photos to lead me to say “Wow”. Pareidolia is the best explanation for all the so-called “Things” people (esp. Hoagland, Bara et al) claim to see in the vast majority of the Mars photos. Rocks, my friends, rocks is all. Now, I can fully believe at one point in the planet’s history that it probably did harbor life, maybe intelligent life, but it was a long time ago (millions of years), or NASA might be keeping the images that contain this evidence to themselves (which is a huge disservice to us all, especially since some of our tax money generates their paychecks). Or maybe, as the one comment above states, they’re playing a joke on us all and taking pictures out in Joshua Tree 😀

    • Roger on April 22, 2021 at 5:17 pm

      I suspect Mars gets too warm in the middle of the day and doesn’t have enough mass or gravity to hold on to too much more atmosphere than it currently has. Water evaporates at much lower temperatures on Mars as well. Might be simple life adapted to extreme environments on Mars despite all that. No protective magnetic fields either. Venus likely had life before Earth and if continues to reverse it’s spin and eventually speeds up its spin in alignment and the same direction as the rest of the planets in our solar system it will likely evolve life once again. Something made Venus resurface it’s surface recently and spin in the wrong direction. I suspect Russia tested a neutron bomb on it back when they were lobbing rockets and satelites at Venus during the cold war. Before then pictures of Venus showed a blue planet.

  16. RBG Santa Monica on April 22, 2021 at 3:28 pm

    I have been watching for anomalous object on Mars for a long time. In case you are interested, this picture from Curiosity rover has some of the best stuff I have found. Lot’s of heads (humanoid) and body parts – perhaps the remains of a sculpture garden.

    • RBG Santa Monica on April 22, 2021 at 3:31 pm

      You may need to download the hi-res image and open in your own picture viewer to better zoom in.

    Pareidolia can reveal real hidden patterns when freely and intuitively using right side of the brain, but only when one imagines canonically though the functions of the corpus callosum. True art is a subtil bridge to living and infinite sacred mystery. It cannot be possessed, only contemplated even when mastered. That is why it has a price on it’s head but is impossible to “catch” in essence. It leaves behind a beautiful corpse to be resurected temporarily, only by someone else’s disciplined imagination (or the imagination of a disciple).

  18. Robert Barricklow on April 22, 2021 at 12:24 pm

    Of course, when “they” release something; there’s a purpose.
    As in FDR’s famous quote; In politics, nothing happens by accident.
    Politics and media are in bed together; not by accident.
    And in media; nothing, happens by accident.
    Meaning, their storylines are just that: stories, not news.
    Oh, to be sure; “they” take a kernel of truth.

    Viola! Jack and the Beanstalk.
    Fee-fi-fo-fum, I smell the blood of the unvaxxed.
    Be he alive, or dead; I’ll mind his DNA, to make my crypto bread.

    There is no bona fide weather;
    nor no no bona fide news.

    To today’s post.

    Imaginations can run away in seeing patterns;
    even where the “pictures” are simply random.
    But, this appears to be focused in an area;
    where most have come to the same consensus crossroads.
    This is a case for asking, What do “they” want me to see?
    In which case; this is an op.
    Next question is: is this real?
    If so, do they want a variety of viewpoints?
    If so, are they getting – the many to tell “their” story?
    It would be different, from different views;
    but all sprouting, from the same seeded “pictures”.

    Certainly “different” the mainstream’s abnormal broadcast news,
    sung from press choirs; reading, the today’s news hymns
    off of globally coordinated teleprompters.

    Yet both sprout from the same fake “trusted” source.
    One singing in tune; the other from different views;
    Yet, every story was no accident.

    Get the picture?

    My first thought is those pictures are from a desert on Earth, but with the color balance tweaked.

  21. KevinF on April 22, 2021 at 10:08 am

    Here’s a bit of speculation. Maybe the photos were just taken somewhere here on Earth. The people who took them can just pocket however many billions of dollars they say they spent on Mars and at the same time have a good laugh at us dumb humans who think something special is going on..

    • Scott S on April 22, 2021 at 10:51 am

      Those pictures look like Earth to me too. From what I gather I would say that there are human colonies on Mars and maybe other local bodies, but its kept secret from most of humanity.

      If I were running a covert op to hide the true extent of human exploration and colonization of our solar system I would put out pictures just like this one. Pictures with odd details for people to argue about.

  22. Hidden Wally on April 22, 2021 at 10:00 am

    Snapshot #6 is not a swastika, it is a very clear infinity sign. Just back off the magnification with the minus sign feature and it will snap into focus. The other features are much clearer at a lower magnification.

  23. OrigensChild on April 22, 2021 at 9:07 am

    I remember these photos, but another view of them is just fine with me. You can bet if these fascist want their Global Reset this badly there are many layers to the occult logic for them. The moon, Mars and the asteroid belt are definitely in their immediate sites. Venus is also on the menu–though not much is mentioned of it here in the West.

  24. KSW on April 22, 2021 at 8:47 am

    I agree JF about the clouds. I have a game, but I don’t actually play it intentionally, it just happens – random paint spatters, the patterns in the tiles on the floor at work, or any textured area like the rocks. There is a fox with glowing eyes that appears in a nearby tree at a certain time during the fall. I mostly see faces, lots of faces – human and animal, and sometimes full forms. I sometimes see entire scenes, one such was a horse mounted figure with a building in the background and a sky. I’ve been caught staring at intricate scenes on a stucco wall that just jumped out at me and were amazing and transient as the light changed or faded. Most imaginative people have this experience. Still, I think the scientists were looking for what materials the rocks may contain, or for lizards or rodents or any sign of life. I do expect they’ll find things on Mars — I really hope they tell us when they do. Maybe it will feel safer for them to tell us, more so than they feel about sharing what’s in Antarctica … gosh, would really love to know that!

    • Allen S on April 22, 2021 at 12:53 pm

    Besides the clear cut geometries of the ‘debris’ (all puns intended), what struck me is what I would interpret as a ridged, protective walled circumference of the formations that can be seen to the left. When one goes to the trouble of building such edifices, one might want to be sure to protect it as best one can.

    NASA ‘scientists’ attempting to perform press briefings in face mask when ZERO science correlates ‘infection’ (PCR test is a scam) to face mask. NASA science is trash heap CDC religion.

  27. swimsinocean on April 22, 2021 at 6:25 am

    The image was created by gigapan user named Neville Thompson. There are no dates of origin on his images, only date of upload.

    I’m seeing pretty much the same as Dr. Farrell. You could spend your life examining these images . The three categories put forward by Dr. Farrell are all viable options, however I think it’s a bit of each.

    “We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false”, William Casey, CIA Director, from first staff meeeting in 1981).

    The quote from CIA head in 1/30/1976-1/20/1977 Gerge Herbert Walker Bush (to Sarah McLendon): ” Sarah, if the American people ever find out what we have done, they would chase us down the street and lynch us.”

    Obviously, scamplandemic state would prevent the lynching…

    I definitely see the statue with a crown. I wish I knew the scale and could get a better idea of size, however these are interesting. As you note, the colors are more realistic than previously released photos, and the resolution is good. NASA would not let us see anything that could be too misinterpreted…would they? My thought is that ‘they’ (NASA Officialdom) are half-divided between Disclosure and Coverup and can’t really think straight. Since they are now flying drones around, at least there is some kind of atmosphere, so there is one thing they are telling the truth about!

    • anakephalaiosis on April 22, 2021 at 6:22 am

      Measuring the length of Pinocchio’s nose becomes pure guesswork, since the NASA-nose grows all the time.

      It takes more that some crummy rocks, to draw attention away, from queen single mum entering estrogen meltdown.

      The spiral of royal lunacy can be calculated, as pure astrophysics, predicting total collapse of sanity in estrogen reign.

      Every pub joke is a nail in the coffin.

    • OrigensChild on April 22, 2021 at 9:04 am

      You mean NASA has a multiple personality disorder? Well, blow me down! All silliness aside, I believe it was Richard Hoagland that once declared the name stood for “Never A Straight Answer”. He also quipped that the lie was different at each level of power. If these comments are a template for all government agencies, this means how can one possibly trust the other institutions either? Like, the CDC? The FBI? The CIA? The ATF? The DEA? The other troubling thing is, all of them seem to act more like private corporations receiving public funds than they do public agencies receiving citizen funding. We are a fascist nation–and the NASA is the most “visible” component of it.
