There have been many speculations and investigations into the artefacts to be seen in
the Cydonia region of Mars. Amongst the most potent of these was the work done by professors Horace Crater and Stanley McDaniel and published in a paper MOUND CONFIGURATION ON THE MARTIAN CYDONIA PLAIN: A GEOMETRIC AND PROBABILISTIC ANALYSIS. ( University of Tennessee Space Institute 1997) (Ref 1).
In the images captured by the Viking orbiters in 1975 were found several unusual features including the much-publicised Face on Mars plus a five-sides feature called the D and M Pyramid ( after Vincent DiPietro and Gregory Molenaar who first described the artefact)and what appears to be a conical “pyramid” dubbed Tholus.
The higher resolution images of the Face taken by Mars Global Surveyor in 1998 were pounced on by those who were challenged by the Viking images. While differing in detail there is no doubt that the images of the Face taken by both Viking and Surveyor show a most unusually-shaped and very large ( dimensions comparable to a mile) sculpted piece of terrain surrounded by a form of frame.
In addition to these artefacts there is a an area of large objects dubbed The City and included in this complex it was seen that there were a number of very reflective “mounds” which apparently were randomly placed. However Crater and McDaniel showed that this was by no means so. The placing of the mounds conformed to the geometry of the tetrahedron.
Crater and Mc Daniel found that their tetrahedral geometry spread outside the confines of this rectangle. For instance when a similar rectangle to is added to the line GE then mound O on the line PG is included.
Pyramidal Geometry in Wessex
In the diagrams below, we compare the Martian tetrahedral geometry (Fig 3a) with a similar form of geometry which links several of the most important ancient sites in the area we will loosely call Wessex. However this geometry is based on the same proportions as a meridian cross-section of the Great Pyramid. In this case the isosceles triangle that results has base 2: height √φ: and apothem (slant side) φ. The exact positions thrown up by the pyramidal geometry are dubbed navels and the grid references refer to these. (Fig 3b)
When the line from Warren Hill (HY), (SZ 171 907) on Hengistbury Head to the east of Bournemouth, is joined to Silbury Hill (SY) (SU 100 686) Then it is found that Stonehenge (SN) (SU 123 422) divides this line in the ratio of 2:1 .
The line joining Silbury to the Stanton Drew (SD) (ST 601 633) stone circle complex south of Bristol is found to make a right-angle with the SY-HY line. This suggests at once that we have two sides of a rectangle.
Cadbury Castle (CC) (ST 628 252), which some have suggested was King Arthur’s Camelot, lies the same distance from Silbury as it does from Warren Hill and the resulting “Cadbury triangle” has the pyramidal proportions.
The rectangle that contains the Cadbury pyramidal triangle is completed by Bayard Hill (BY) (SY 668 860) north of Weymouth in Dorset. Also in Dorset and on the line HY-CC lies Badbury Rings (BC) (ST 965 030) a hillfort near Wimborne Minster to the NW of Bournemouth.
From the proportions of the pyramidal triangle the basic rectangle has the proportions 2:√φ whereas the Cydonia rectangle is 2:√2 .
Thus the rectangle on Mars and that in Wessex show the same basic mathematical mind-set .
Equally the various lengths in the Wessex rectangle, as in the Cydonia rectangle, are all simple numbers or the square-root of simple numbers We are taking φ (1.62) as a simple number for this purpose.
Just as in Crater and McDaniel’s Mars analysis the Wessex geometry can be extended outside the pyramidal rectangle when it is found that the apothem CC – SY looks straight through to the celebrated longbarrow called Wayland’s Smithy (WS) (SU 282 854) on the Berkshire Downs.
We then find that the distance Badbury to Waylands is √5 while the distance Warren Hill to Wayland’s is √6. The other distances follow where (NS) is New Sarum navel ( SU 136 297) – the mid-point of the base of the Cadbury Castle pyramidal triangle.
The unique situation of each of the Wessex navels with respect to the others indicates that the artefacts seen on these positions today have only grown about centres that must have existed for an unknown time before they were raised. It appears therefore that the positions of some of our most celebrated ancient sites were laid down in a very ancient past to accord with a pre-defined plan.
The fact that all these distances are whole numbers or square-roots of whole numbers reinforces our contention that the same mind-set designed both sets of artefacts.
Michael Joyce’s numerical analysis of the Marie de Blancheford Gravestone Inscription has shown a connection between Mars and Earth in a numerical manner. This analysis shows the same thing in a geometric context.
