Let's try to entertain the possibility, for a moment, that as gchrome
offered near the top of page 2 that this may be an "ancient"
deteriorated remnant of some structure of some sort, a'la
the Statue of Liberty, in the end of original "Planet of the
Just for fun, to think about it.....and looking once again at the best possible enhancements of the image.
To your mind, OP.....is this "statue" vertical (erect), or reclining (not vertical)? Can you look and judge by the surrounding terrain to at least
Secondly, by the title of the thread you indicate an opinion that this (if it were a statue) may be "buried", or partially buried.
Is this about correct?
So.....IF partially buried, then it not being erect anymore is feasible....IF it were a statue to begin with. However --- when looking at the
surrounding terrain, can you make a guess at the nature of that terrain?
In other words.....think of geological processes that occur on Earth (and also the time frames involved) where obvious "man-made" object have been
buried, then partially uncovered by natural erosive processes.
Just try to think about this logically, based on real-world (and Earth) experience that we are familiar with. Because, Mars may be an "alien"
planet, but it is after all....just a "rocky" planet, not unlike Earth in that respect.
Finally....consider very carefully the timelines of Mars' history, as regards its climate and atmosphere and potential, as a result, of any
"chance" of sentient life to have developed......let alone, complex multi-cellular lifeforms. It is a very scant possibility that this occurred.
We cannot be sure of course, but again.....using OUR planet as a sort of "blue-print" for comparison, and we know quite well the progression of
life's evolution here......then what we know can be applied to Mars. And, this comparison tells us much.....more study will provide even more
information, in centuries to come. And, theories and concepts will be enhanced.
A wonderful and romantic thing to ponder is the "Science Fiction" aspect of either some "ancient Humanity" expedition to Mars, or even the notion
of Mars as the "birthplace" of Humanity itself. But, unfortunately, the biological record here on Earth discounts that concept pretty clearly.
I have another idea, but would rather keep it to myself, because it might make a good film screenplay....
