Space leads off this week's blogs once again, with this submission from W.G. (thank you!) about NASA's recent decision to fund research looking for extra-terrestrial "megastructures."  The story, though, lacks a certain "context" ... or does it? It's that question that's at the heart of today's high octane speculation, but first, the story:

NASA Is Quietly Funding a Hunt for Alien Megastructures

According to the article, NASA - which had quit funding standard SETI type research looking for microwave signals = has jumped back into the business of searching for ETs by funding other types of searches for technological signatures:

We might find technosignatures, too. These are things like radio signals, or even megastructures; that is, artificial objects on a gigantic scale such as hypothesized star-sized supercomputers. Now, Supercluster reported in an article this week, NASA has quietly begun to fund the search for such alien megastructures for the first time in the agency's history.

Searches for biosignatures have been well funded for the last few decades. In contrast, technosignature funding has had an up and down history. In 1993, NASA famously killed a search program intended to find microwave signals that were artificial in origin. “That had a chilling effect for a couple decades,” said Steve Croft, a radio astronomer and leader of the Breakthrough Listen project at the Berkeley SETI Research Center. But there are signs of a thaw.

Since the end of 2019, NASA has awarded four grants to fund searching for technosignatures. In November 2020, NASA awarded a grant to Ann Marie Cody of the NASA Ames Research Center and Croft to survey the whole sky for anomalous objects that transit across stars. It is possible, however uncertain, that they and their collaborators will find artificial alien megastructures.

The rest of the article goes on to "tame down" what megastructures means, pointing out that the search is geared toward  stars that dim with a periodicity that might indicate exoplanets passing in front of them, and so on.

But as one might suspect, I have a bit of high octane speculation to advance in this connection. Regular followers of this website or readers of my books know that I'm one of those who believes that NASA long ago ran into such "megastructures" right here in our solar system, and that they've been keeping a very tight lid on things. Two rather famous examples come to mind: (1) the "Face on Mars" and the whole odd array of "strange stuff" in the Cydonia region of Mars, and (2)  the Saturnian moon Iapetus. Now, assuming that the "face" really is a Face, badly degraded over the aeons, it is an example of a "technosignature" and a "megastructure." One might add to this Martian inventory more recent "strange pictures" with "strange stuff" in abundance on that planet, to similarly strange pictures of strange stuff on the Moon.

Turning to the Saturnian moon, as I pointed out in my book The Cosmic War: Interplanetary Warfare, Modern Physics, and Ancient Texts, that "moon" has a very odd list of features that make it very "un-moon-like", such as three parallel ridges running along the length of its equator, apparently "straight" edges, and most weirdly, a more-than-passing resemblance to the "Death Star" of George Lucas' Star Wars movies. Assuming the moon itself is not an artificial structure - and I'm willing to entertain the idea - then at least the parallel ridges would seem to be some sort of "megastructure" and "technosignal."

So back to NASA: if you, the reader, like me, subscribe to the notion that we're looking at real indications of real "megastructures", then NASA's recent announcements that it's funding such research makes some sense, because despite its public pronouncements against things like the Martian Face  - "it's just a trick of light and shadow" - their picture analysts have eyes and minds too, and can probably see the obvious, notwithstanding public statements to the contrary.  This will create a climate of opinion to go looking for the source or sources of such engineering, for whomever may have "come here" and "built that."

And I suspect that, in looking at stories like this, we're really looking at the continuation of one effort, that began back when Viking photographed the Face, and Cassini photographed Iapetus.

To put it as bluntly as possible, it's a national, and planetary, security issue...

See you on the flip side...

    I think we can conclude that Earth has been purposely “isolated” for a long time. So….how many agendas ARE there going on at this time to try & bring Humanity into the True Reality of The Cosmos???

    I would say we are watching that play out before our very eyes & it is not a very pleasant sight!!!

    I think we can probably all agree that the one thing the Never A Straight Answer Corporation can be relied on for is Misinformation. Perhaps they’re just following the dictates and the lead of global or indeed galactic controllers.
    In line with this, and in reference to the discussion about possible technologies that a very advanced ET civilisation might possess, it’s always struck me that a cloaking technology could be quite likely. A sort of solar system /galactic photoshop or filter process or even, as has been suggested in other quarters, something which generates/broadcasts a very limited space time reality just for this planet.
    As this planet is absolutely teeming with all kinds of life, I find it bizarre that other planets in this small system and very close to us are supposed to be dead. As bizarre as if, for instance, all the life forms found on Earth were confined to one single island or continent.
    If this happened to be the case then any kind of true disclosure would involve the lifting of this filter/cloaking system. I won’t be holding my breath for it though.

    It’s not just about the structure of the structure but also the properties of the structure and the impact the properties have on the human. Prime example, Shiv Ling’s (which are not the phallus of the Shiv but our pineal gland ), so the Shiv Ling are meteorite stones, that rained on the earth and the Hindus made Shiva temples everyplace they fell. These meteorite stones can resonate and align the human chakras. Hence Instead of a blind “search” better to start with or bias the search with these meteorite stones that can align the chakras. Lot more beneficial and “doable”

    • kalki on July 13, 2021 at 3:02 am

      And this nicely dovetails into the “Cosmological anthropomorphic principle” described else where by JPF.
      ORIGINALLY this is an “Upanishad-ic” principle, obviously.

      (No amount of waxing n waning by Tipler-Wheeler-Barrow-er will change that)

  4. Foglamp on July 13, 2021 at 12:11 am

    Could there be a large number of Giza-ish death stars on “our” own Moon, too?

  5. TRM on July 12, 2021 at 11:40 pm

    LOL. Ah ha!!!

    That’s why there’s such a rush to inject everybody with an experimental gene therapy treatment. They will be living greatly extended lives and as such need all the resources for themselves.

    Ringworlds Dyson Spheres let alone what NASA has found in our solar system. Denial of microbes on Mars let alone structure of vanished civilizations. What lifeforms may be swimming in the oceans of Jupiter’s and Saturn’s moons?

    • joshua on July 14, 2021 at 2:28 am

      ….You forgot to mention in the space around earth … huge living macrophages, swimming in the ocean of the space around earth , I do not say that space is a ocean , just that it is teaming with life. remeber the little critters (swarms of .;) astronouts talked about . Even a kosmonaut captured one , before losing contact with earth .

    Could it actually be, that someone has realised that the time for running a “free house” get-together is ending. And that not only are mom and dad coming home,and not only have spied their car zipping along, but we have actually seen the resort where they were staying? Also and apologies, this popped into my FB feed , aand I couldn’t resist.

    • Lemuel Gulliver on July 13, 2021 at 2:45 am

      Indeed. A lot of Gary Larson’s work could take on slightly new meanings when viewed from this perspective.

  8. Robert Barricklow on July 12, 2021 at 12:00 pm

    What’s changed w/NASA and the megastructures?
    The narrative.
    Now, the narrative[s] are going to bring in the “alien” other.
    Following the G.E. spokesman Ronald Reagan’s continuing promotion to the Transnational Corporate presidential spokesman to his warning:
    The World needs to unite against this coming alien threat.
    [But first you need to get vaxxed, so you can “join” the U.S.S.A. military; little realizing, the enemy w/in has brainwashed you w/the first of many dehumanizing jab$ and programs, designed to take away your free will]
    To today’s post..

    White Rabbit

    • Robert Barricklow on July 12, 2021 at 5:24 pm

      Now the mix & match, truths & half-truths, lies and out-right lies[statistics]; begin in full earnest, by the Never A Straight Answer Space Cowboy brand.
      Expect branded new discoveries, of long ago buried finds; all framed in ways to obfuscate the true nature of such ancient realizations.
      “They’re rounding-up old-finds, and dusting them-off as new; w/a little dressing-up to hide their true origins. Yippee-ki-yay!
      Any successful searching for technological signatures, will be rounded-up by the NSA ranch and branded like the 1993 artificial microwave signals. All this is designed to keep Earth on the horse-and-buggy side of technology; while the Breakaway Civilizations rides off-world w/high ancient alien technologies, sprinkling alien fairy dust[w/mainstream media assisting] on all red-hot alien trails.
      Now the narrative has changed somewhat; still controlling the storyline, but following the Ronal Reagan gathering up the all NWO nation-state stooges; in a wagon-train circle of defense, against the bogey[fighter pilot slang] alien threat.
      In the corral w/the 1993 microwave artificial signals, are the Face of Mars w/the Death Star Moon of Saturn. The NASA Cowboys will continue to look for “other” alien breakout stories, and round them up w/a narrative brand – into the O.K. Storyline Corral.
      Look out! for when “they” open that O.K. Storyline Corral; to let the aliens out, in one flash crash, all across the world-wide-commercialized and controlled web of lies, truths, half-truths, and out-right Mark Twain statistics.

      It’s Wagon Train! starring the NWO narrative[s]; w/all the supporting alien false flag special effects, and cast to boot-up the ancient alien playbook .

    A good paper about possible ET Engineering is the following:
    Pulsar Positioning System: A quest for evidence of extraterrestrial engineering by Clément Vidal
    v2.0, 15 Oct 2017 International Journal of Astrobiology.
    Forbes gives an excellent overview of the theory which posits that perhaps at least some pulsars have been manipulated by highly-advanced extraterrestrial civilizations. The idea is that such ETs would either use them as navigation beacons to direct their own spacecraft, or for galactic communication, or both.

    • Richard on July 12, 2021 at 1:20 pm

      One has often thought it possible that some pulsations from the celestial realms might be navigational beacons not unlike terrestrial lighthouses for ships near the shorelines of many countries. By extension Pulsars might serve a similar purpose.

      These pulses, due to their intensities, directions, and wavelengths that this simian science has arrived might also set in motion molecules of activity producing what is witnessed today with organic life forms.

      To think, it might be these organic lifeforms with their pulsations and wavelengths in motion now producing this process of artificial lifeforms. One way to be fruitful and multiply using this division of life as a progenitor.

      So-oo-oo, some NASA spokesperson allowed to represent them has suggested where taxpayer funds are getting allocated.

      . . . . “their picture analysts have eyes and minds too, and can probably see the obvious, notwithstanding public statements to the contrary. This will create a climate of opinion to go looking for the source or sources of such engineering, for whomever may have “come here” and “built that.””. . . Like your suspicions one has faith that some of NASA’s finest have several hidden interests of their own and some of the inside connectivity just shy of public controversy.

      The “Mons” of Mars, the arrangements on mars of the four Mons’ (Olympus, Pavonis, Arsia, and Ascraeus) suggest an artificial placement possibly construction. They’re not just pock marked roundish, they’re very circular. Very round as if they had direct drilling into the planet’s surface as if some sort of tap. Their location on and around the equatorial grid fits almost exactly. Their triangular arrangement, aside from Pavonis Mons, are nearly equidistant from each other where Pavonis seems to be the right-angle bisector in that triangular formation. Recently, there has been some mapping of Mars for magnetic anomalies even though Mars is said to have little to no magnetic field of consequence. There are faint signatures of where three of those aligned Mons’ might have aligned some time in the past suggesting that there might have been some sort of malleable subsurface of Mars that shifted not unlike that hypothesis of Charles Hapgood regarding crustal shifting of earth and Pole shifting.

      Those are several coincidences that stand out really well to this viewer. One’s guess? . . It’s a former tripod position of some design and/or tap into the Martian surface that interacted with the planet’s inner thermal energies at one time. Probably when they were intact, and the planet looked much different and might have had an active internal process to produce a magnetic field.

      Ummm… I’d like to point out credit where credit is due. That’s actually Dr. Paul LaViolette’s idea of which he is the source from his book The Talk of the Galaxy, published Starlane Publications 2000…and later re-published under the title, Decoding the Message of the Pulsars, Bear & Co 2006.

    Thank you Dr. Farrell and thank you Basta. Yes – “More” Megastructures. “Already found them they have.” (And as far as SETI using microwaves to search for ET, what self-respecting ET capable of interplanetary and interstellar “travel” is using microwaves to communicate? Too slow. That’s like if we were to use pony express still. Or smoke signals. They’re using something that’s either telepathic or quantum-entanglement based so it’s point-to-point, instantaneous.) But here’s one other thing. Saturn has a hexagonal “storm” formation at its north pole. That’s just odd. On the moon, low left face of full moon, are several hexagonal “craters.” An interesting shape for an impact crater. Or on a structure with actual impact craters, a way to blend a large structure into the landscape when facing a world without telescopes or space travel technology. And a way to signal that world when they develop telescope technology. Like the scene in Hunt For Red October when Ramius and Bart Mancuso are at periscope depth for their first facetime. An “I see you” moment. But by all means, let’s “start” looking for ET megastructures. (While they’re at at, maybe they can photograph and map the shit out of Cydonia. Steer a rover there instead of everywhere but.)

    • Robert Barricklow on July 12, 2021 at 5:32 pm

      Loved the Yoda lingo, “Already found them they have”.

    NASA Looking for *More* Megastructures

    There, fixed it for ya.

  12. DanaThomas on July 12, 2021 at 9:44 am

    Most science fiction writers could write a more convincing article than that “Vice” piece.

  13. anakephalaiosis on July 12, 2021 at 5:33 am

    Saint Finnegan’s miraculous megastructure was very much alive, and then it fell down, died, and rose again, by a ghost in a bottle, called Whiskey.
