'THE FACE' AT CYDONIA ON MARS An Unambiguous Sign Of Intelligence

Instead of through radio signals, suppose we Earth Humans were 'destined to be contacted' by some other means of "pattern recognition", possibly involving mathematical constants encoded, somehow, into the structural design or into the latitude/longitude placement of huge ancient monuments or pyramids, for example ?

I've been studying the work of a man named Carl P. Munck since the early 1990s, and I'm convinced that he has read and decoded a clear, obvious, redundant, intelligent communication .... across time and space ... from the surfaces of both Earth and Mars. Indeed, this involves reading the unambiguous mathematical evidence that is clearly exhibited in the structural design and in the precise latitude and longitude positioning, of 'The Face' and 'The D&M Pyramid' at Cydonia on Mars .... according to the work of a professional cartographer who examined photos of the Cydonia area taken during the 1976 NASA Viking mission.

On three separate occasions, Munck's work and conclusions regarding the artificiality of both 'The Face' and 'The D&M Pyramid' were simply "ignored" by NASA , upon receipt of the reports from Carl P. Munck during the 1990s. Munck has received well over 100 'rejection slips' from various publishers regarding his detailed and compelling work. He has therefore self-published his work.

The breakthrough involving the structures on Mars happened in the very early 1990s when Munck, Richard C. Hoagland, and Erol O. Torun were collaborating. Torun is a professional cartographer, having worked for many years for the Defense Mapping Agency (this agency's name was changed about two years ago, says Torun.) It was Munck who suggested, back around 1990 or so, that maybe a prime meridian for longitude measurement passed through the center of 'The D&M Pyramid' ... in the same way that (Munck had already determined) the Earth prime meridian passed through the center of The Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt.

When Munck applied Torun's map numbers to this hypothetical Martian prime meridian, everything fell dramatically into place. Giza and Cydonia, in several ways, could now be seen as true 'analogues' to one another.

'The Face' Relative-to 'The D&M Pyramid' Torun's map showed 'The Face' to be centered at almost exactly ....

41 deg 11 min 10 sec North

Munck recognized this as a 'Grid Latitude' of .... 1440 x Pi .... or, 41 deg x 11 min x 10.03080581 sec North = 4523.893421 North = 1440 x Pi

Pi is a math constant ... the ratio of circumference-to-diameter of any given circle or sphere. And 1440 is exactly 4 times 360 .... with 360 being the number of arc-degrees on any circumference, according to "our" math conventions ! But it was the prime meridian through the center of 'The D&M Pyramid' that really clinched 'The Face' as a true "SIGN" of intelligence. According to Torun's map, Munck measured the longitude distance from the center of 'The D&M Pyramid' eastward to the middle of the nose on 'The Face' .... as just slightly over 6.89 arc-minutes. Again, Munck recognized a probable 'Grid Longitude' of .... (2Pi / 3) x (Pi / 3) x Pi = 6.890283706 E.Cydonia

As Munck says, that's "a nice Pi-multiplex" !!!

Grid Point Value of 'The Face' The intersection point of latitude/longitude is represented, in this re-discovered "planetary math matrix", by the ratio of a given site's Grid Latitude to its Grid Longitude, always greater-than-one. This resulting figure is called the Grid Point Value :

4523.893421 / 6.890283706 = 656.56127

This is the Grid Point Value of 'The Face' at Cydonia on Mars. Notice the following terms, or "entities", in this equation :

656.56127 = (360 x RAD deg) / (10 x Pi)

Note : 'RAD deg' is the "Radian (degrees) measure", a math constant that is the arc-distance on a circumference which is equal to the radius distance of the same given circle or sphere. In arc-degrees, this is equal to 57.29577951 .... to eight decimal places. This is an irrational number, just as the Pi constant is an irrational number equal to .... 3.141592654 .... to nine decimal places. Of course, "our" math conventions have 360 arc-degrees on a circumference !!! The relationship between the Radian (deg) constant, the Pi constant, and the 360 degree "convention" can be shown by the following equation :

RAD deg x 2Pi = 360 deg

Isn't it amazing that the Grid Point Value of 'The Face' at Cydonia on Mars is *showing* us four main elements of "our own" math and number system ?!?! We are being shown, assuming we are able to read it, the Pi constant, the Radian (deg) constant, the number 360, and the number 10 .... as in "base ten". How could this NOT BE an obvious "SIGN" of *extraterrestrial* intelligence ?!?

It is blatantly and wonderfully obvious, according to some brilliant work that has been "ignored" and suppressed, that we have already found unambiguous evidence of extraterrestrial intelligence.
