Anyone small group of enthusiasts on this board could EASILY come up with a similar, cryptic, interesting design that would make people scratch their heads and try to figure it out.
You can download a program off the Internet for free that tells you where all the stars and planets will be for the next thousand + years. Knowing where heavenly bodies are is hardly an amazing feat. Nor is creating a goofy pattern that includes a SEXTANT. Seriously.. a sextant?
Because aliens know that a sextant would have great meaning with us eh?
And the "language.." what rubbish. Long pointless wobbly lines, almost no repeating characters (try creating a paragraph that makes sense without repeating characters), some tiny ones, some that are long and annoying... what a horrible language that is. And without a key, how could they possibly expect us to translate that? We couldn't. Ergo, it's pointless. As they would know. Maybe they are just messing with us, eh?
I am certain the creators of these have a great laugh at the hundreds of hours spent trying to "decipher" the gibberish.edit on 8-5-2011 by fleabit because: (no reason given)

I repect your views but sorry I really don't think it looks man made and challenge anyone to recreate it - I don't think so.
