Advanced Martian Technology: Is it staring us in the face?

From Harry Potter ( to the Military ( to university departments (, the pursuit of one of the greatest breakthrough technologies is rapidly progressing: Invisibility.

Whilst we are merely at the beginning stages of developing invisibility techniques – the current areas of study being augmented-reality technology, the other being the use of metamaterials – we can perhaps assume that any alien civilization has developed far more advanced invisibility technology.

With the recent exploration or Mars indications have been building that possible high technology has been seen and photographed by both the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter and the two rovers on the surface. We will come to them shortly.

The problem with detecting invisible objects is just that. They are invisible. Never-the-less, tell-tales signs of invisibility, the sort that uses metamaterials to bend light, can be detected, through extrapolation of light patterns that are otherwise meaningless except when extraneous light patterns are removed or ignored. An understanding of the scene being viewed, the photographic techniques used, and technology used in processing the final image aids the drawing-out of the patterns of light that indicate an invisibility tech is at work.

Typical problems encountered in searching for the signs of invisibility include the normal ones associated with image analysis. ATS members have discussed such issues on many occasions. Here are a couple of threads:

So, what are the tell tale signs of metamaterials at work, bending light? You would think that the light being bent would be invisible. And it is. In fact a viewer cannot see the light in question.

The tell-tale sign of invisibility is not actually the object in question, rather, it is the effect of the invisibility on other light in the vicinity of the invisible object.

For example there are two objects, A and B. A is invisible (using metamaterials) and B is visible, partly behind A from your viewing angle. You cannot see A. You can see B though there is sometimes a slight almost imperceptible line silvery light. This occurs through a process somewhat similar to “lensing” whereby the bent light of A interferes with the light from B. It is highly dependent upon viewing direction, lighting conditions and surrounding objects. Viewing an invisible object at at oblique or along a plane of the object has a higher likelihood of seeing the lensing effect.

Here are a couple of links to images that possibly demonstrate the lensing effect:

In this image, taken by Opportunity's Panoramic Camera on Sol 2679, we are treated to wonderful image of Endeavour Crater. Upon closer examination the image appears to have strange lines in places. These lines cross stone, cracks and dirt features that should - if the lines were surface features - break-up them up. The squiggles and lines in question appear to be lensed light caused by metamaterials bending light and interfering with other light.

In case you cannot see the squiggles and lines in question here is a sample partly annotated image with just a few marked lines highlighted. You will need to compare the two images:

In this image a number of red lines indicate where suspected lensing lines are visible. There are many other such lines in the image. It is believed that the invisible structures in the above image come to within several feet of the rover.

(Note that the theorized interfered light sources above do not actually seem to be in contact with the Mars' surface, but rather are between 18 centimeters and 2 meters above the ground. This is hypothesized from climatic and geographic data. However, this is an observation not totally backed-up by evidence as surface "cloaks" have been surmised as explanations for symmetrical ground obfuscation in some previous rover observations. We recommend viewing images taken at Victoria Crater.)

In this image further odd squiggles and lines are present. We have noted a few for the viewer:

Can you see these strange lines?

In each image we have indicated only a fraction of the objects of interest. Our theory is that these markings are "lensed light" caused primarily by non-invisible light entangling with metamaterials that are bending another object's light.

The effect of the metamaterials in polarizing light allows one to detect signs of invisibility that are different to lensing. We call the observed effect of polarized light "twindling". This occurs when for instance a perfectly ordinary day to day object (such as a pavement) has frost on it. When viewed from a certain angle in certain light conditions the pavement becomes almost multi-dimensional, displaying various colors and apparent layers or depth. Of course, under the frost, the pavement is still the same as it always has been: it is usually pretty flat and grey or tar colored. The effect you witness when the frost effects the reflected light is twindling.

Likewise, light reflected off an invisible surface will rarely betray the twindle effect. This occurs only in very unusual viewing conditions, still being theorized. Examples on Mars include the following:

In this picture taken by the MRO (it can be found at what are supposed to be sand dunes and surface features are betrayed by the twindling effect of the light. Note the lower sides of the dunes and the chimney at the vertex of the largest dune. In this small sample picture there are many examples of twindling and lensed light.

The more you look, the more you see.

Invisibility already is existing. I work have before at Pine Gap. The technology has been around for AT LEAST fifteen years.

So yes we have the technology and we have had for years. The reason it is secret is very obvious. We don't want political enemies using it. Also, we do not want civilians using it.

We also have much more technology. The ability to walk on walls for instance - that has been around for very long.

To be honest this is a poor attempt at a thread, normally you would say that it is just human nature to see shapes and that is what a lot of the "FINDINGS" are on mars and on the moon. In this case you have just went mad with MS Paint and the drawings you have made have nothing in common with the background picture. Good day to you

Sorry I'm not seeing fact the only lines and squiggles I can see are the ones you have drawn on the images.

i always believed the integrated circuit was handed down to us from above

Maybe it's just me but I don't see it in those pictures.. I understand your theory, but what are you suggesting that these red lines are something hidden by invisibility?

All i see is photos of red snakes, sorry but nothing intresting here.

anybody else seeing a droopy banana and two oranges on the 2nd picture?

Did the work to generate a little gif.
Can´t see any real lines. If you swap contrast/brightness in PS you get some very faint lines. This could be scratches on a lense.

ha nice gif

so for example , the dance floor spoted by symptoms , would this be an example of a twerking 'twinderling'

its roundish, and there seems to be a dark line or crack down the middle


*funbox laughs as he notices an anomaly, tiptoeing three posts up he careful lays the invisible twinderling box, then, quietly tipsy toes back.
the resulting explosive sound echos BANNED BANned Banned.. *
