Thank you Mike, Too long between visits now, but you bring me back.
All very interesting and serves to get our biocomputers warmed up.
For those so called skeptics, you need to actually understand the context people like Mike are giving us this material from. He's not trying to
prove anything, he knows there can be no proof here. ATS discusses. Some attitudes we see here think it means “disgusted”. But take this like
it is presented. Very, very interesting images to discuss.
I did plenty if illustration for NASA in the early 90's, and poured over photos to reference for scenes. I did not see many glaring anomalous stuff,
but if I did, I would have looked closer and asked questions.
Assuming there are no weird alien things does not make it so, and if just one, JUST ONE turns out to be evidence of intelligent origins, then our
whole world changes.
I’ve seen enough over the years to believe it is worth looking closer and doing some serious work. I cannot support the lazy notion that because you
doubt something it is not worth some careful thought.
I used to do lots of rock hounding and exploration in the deep desert, especially Death Valley, and you see things there that can fool the eye. If
you saw Mushroom Rock from 200 miles up, you might mistake it for, well.. A mushroom the size of a VW. There are other things that can fool the fool
too. I’ve seen natural things that looked fake. I’ve seen fake things that look real. But to dismiss anything before you know, or categorize
anything before you do some science and due diligence, is the height of arrogance and "ignorance / illusion" (some people think that’s two eyes,
but it’s just two “I’s)
Applause to Mike and anyone who finds and brings this type of material forward for discussion, otherwise lost in piles of forgotten records of brave
and intelligent people actually doing the work of exploration for us web surfing couch-o-nauts.
Some of us, in fact many of us, have direct knowledge that life is everywhere, and anywhere. And, while I think these images can be normal geologic,
seismic or impact events, I can believe they could be something much more wondrous. Foot prints of intelligent life that have inhabited the galaxy
for billions of years. You could not prove otherwise.
Thanks again Mike!
Oh, and about the crater anomaly. Shadows are very sharp as there is no atmospheric diffusion of light. I illustrate for science books and have
studied formation and geologic change on lunar geology and cratering. There is not much erosion, seismic or displacement on the lunar surface.
Undisturbed, a footprint in Regolyth will last millions if not billions of years unchanged unless jarred by or covered by ejecta from other impacts.
What you see on the Moon has been there since well before the so-called dawn of Man.
At least this particular Earthborn instance of civilization anyway.
