In 1992, I was invited to present — at the United Nations — a remarkable artistic space discovery … as part of our on-going “Independent Mars Investigation”:

That, the massive mile-long “Face on Mars” — first imaged by NASA’s unmanned Viking spacecraft in 1976 — was actually–

TWO “faces” ….

A terrestrial “hominid” half … elegantly blended with a completely unexpected “feline” half … a lion.

My guest tonight, William Saunders (along with co-researcher, George Haas) ultimately located myriad, multi-cultural examples of sculptures and paintings on this planet, that deliberately fused “two independent symbolic concepts into a single ‘master work’.”

Hass and Saunders have now also found, in addition to the Face, dozens of additional examples of such “deliberately bifurcated geoglyphs” on Mars; published two major works on this provocative “two-planets’ artistic phenomenon”; and have concluded, as a result — independent of our own revolutionary Mars’ conclusions — that somehow, at some time in the distant solar system past, “the Martians” seem to have been the direct carriers of this striking form of art from Mars … to Earth!

Reinforcing other, growing scientific evidence that, at least some “humans,” share a common heritage with Mars ….

Join us.

  1. Hi Richard
    Off topic but……………….
    Go to the Wikipedia article on Uranus. Look at the fact box on the right. It says that Uranus’s axial tilt is 97.77 degrees to orbit. Divide that figure by 360 degrees. The answer is VERY close to a harmonic of e – base number of logarithms. Significant or coincidence?

    I will be joining Club 19.5 this week!

    Look what I found on Mars ..

    Is it just me, or does image 8 look like NrSimha?

  5. Symynyshyn Sculpture Studios says:

    Its a hollowed out mesa.
    The image is inverted.
    Like a head on a coin pressed into clay and taken out.
    Mostly likely made by bulldozers in the heyday of oil exploration in the 30s 》40s 》50s pushing the debris down from the rim and creating the road down to the level plain. Really simple to do actually !!!

    As astonishing as this may be, please be cautious with your enthusiasm, apophenia is a thing. Science is too.

  7. VierlingVierling says:

    Questions for tonight’s show about face on Mars. Mile long? Just how big is it? What are Earthly comparisons? Have any of our large buildings been designed for looking from the top down? Do we have projects that use geometry in placements like we find with the face and Sedona? Is there an interpretation of all the math found? ie how to make something? Points to a math field? ? Did we find some math that we have no idea what subfield it belongs to? What does Europe, other countries say, think about the Face? Have any crop circles been associated? Speculate why such a large building was made. Why is it not in “total” ruins like we are finding with other rover photos?. Oh and try not to get political.

  8. Richard…… in regards to last night’s show and Uranus…… President Trump’s natal chart shows the Sun and Uranus are essentially in conjunction – within 5 degrees. Directly between those two bodies is his north node. Then, even further, the moon is almost perfect 180 degree opposition to the north node. Would this configuration have a HYPERDIMENSIONAL effect?
    Also I was born with Uranus within one degree of midheaven DIRECTLY overhead. Would that have
    HYPERDIMENSIONAL effects???? Steven
