A Tale of Two Cities
It is the best of times, it is the worst of times.
We come here tonight with a tale of joy and woe, a mystery of vast proportions
and insidious depths. The steps we take next will go a long way to determining
the outcome of a war -- as Graham Hancock once called it -- "for the soul of
We wanted to come forward tonight with all that we have to show, a
universe of unimaginable wonders that will stagger and astound you. Instead,
because of the actions of a few arrogant deviants inside the quickly decaying
heart of NASA, we must tell you only part of the story, and show only part of
What we do have is a desperate and pathetic attempt to derail the most
important discovery in human history. In the course of the past week, since we
chose to delay our promised data release on the Mars Odyssey 2001 THEMIS
infrared data we have been processing, the situation has gotten even more
confusing, at least (pun intended) on the surface. Our website has been hacked,
some of our associates computer systems have been attacked, and the usual
suspects of charlatans and bottom feeders have escalated their vicious personal
attacks in a vain effort to stave off the inevitable.
It will not work. The countdown is simply on hold. It has not been aborted.
Which brings us to the central issue we must discuss tonight. The image above is
the clearest proof yet provided that there is something rotten in Tempe (and
Pasadena, for that matter).
When you browse the image above, what you will see is in fact two images,
superficially similar, both obtained from the THEMIS website (we think). One of
them however, is the "real deal," a true, mostly unretouched piece of genuine IR
data that can and has provided stunning proof of the Cydonia artificiality
hypothesis. The other is deliberately degraded fraud, possibly made from
genuine THEMIS IR data, but nonetheless retouched to the point that is useless
for analysis or scientific interpretation, and designed to deliberately mislead
the public as to the true nature of what lies beneath the Cydonia plain. In the
bottom version of the image, the one still posted (as of this writing) on the
THEMIS website all of the offending "Artifacts" have been removed.
Unfortunately, this did not stop the NASA/THEMIS team from using it to declare
that there is nothing unusual about Cydonia. But that is an issue for our full
In any scientific investigation,
you simply cannot go forward with any conclusion based on ambiguity in the chain of
evidence. The simple truth is that while we have a very tight circumstantial
case with which to assign blame for this fraud perpetrated on the American
people, we don't yet have the proverbial "DNA evidence." It the acquisition of
that evidence which requires us to delay our full release yet again.
We know which one of these images is "real." And we can prove it beyond any
reasonable doubt. But it is laying out that proof, step by meticulous step,
which has necessarily delayed our disclosure. Because there is now more involved
here, the perpetration of a fraud, the deliberate misuse of government property
and funds, we must also consult with counsel before proceeding.
In the meantime, there is something that our audience can do to facilitate this
process. We have at the moment two equally viable scenarios for how this data
came to be in our hands. One of them involves the posting of the top image in
the graphic above on the "real" THEMIS web site for a period of time on the 25th
of July. It is fairly easy to see the differences, without any enhancement or
processing, between the top images and the bottom "official" version, which has
been posted on the THEMIS web site for a substantial amount of time. In the real
image, you can see some very interesting and very clear block patterns that do
not appear in the lower version of the image. If you downloaded the Cydonia
THEMIS image on July the 25th, instead of on the first day of its release, the
24th, you may have a copy of the "genuine" article. We ask that anyone who
downloaded the image on the 25th visually inspect their version of the image
against the image above. If you see the blocks, then you should contact us at
firstname.lastname@example.org. PLEASE DO NOT SEND THE IMAGE. Instead, simply
send an email indicating that you may have a duplicate of the upper set of IR
images in the graphic above and we will contact you in return to arrange a file
Second, we are providing a link below to a full size .TIFF version of the "real"
Cydonia THEMIS data. We invite and encourage any experienced professionals to
use it to perform standard IR enhancement techniques and verify the stunning
quality of this crucial piece of data. We ask that you not download this image
unless you plan to run high-level analysis on it and produce a scientific
evaluation. Over the holiday weekend, we will produce a step by step tutorial
for how to bring out the best results from this data. However, you should know
that unless you can obtain software that allows you to use a "decorrelation
stretch" technique, you might not get very satisfactory results.
We were able to achieve fabulous results with a software product
created by Research
Systems Inc. (a division of the Kodak Corporation), called ENVI 3.5.
We were kindly granted a temporary license to use ENVI for a period of
time, and it can produce truly spectacular detail and stunning results,
as you can see from the image below.
Composite color ratio image of the D&M pyramid, made from "real"
Mars Odyssey 2001 THEMIS image
and combined with Odyssey visible light image. Decorrelation stretch done
in ENVI 3.5.
Compared to the same object (The D&M) from the "official"
version of the THEMIS IR data, it is plainly obvious we aren't working
with the same dataset, in any qualitative sense of the word ...
We encourage all interested professionals, especially anyone in NASA with
experience working with IR images, and qualified "image enhancement savvy"
laymen to use ENVI to duplicate our results. There is a possibility that ENVI
may be made available to a wider range of researchers just for this project.
In the meantime, we will soon inform how you can best assist us in other ways
with this crucially important quest for the truth. We realize that many of you
are disappointed at the moment, but until we can trace this clumsy attempt to
defraud the American people to its source (and we know who you are) in a way
that will create the maximum benefit for our cause, we must keep our powder dry.
Again, "Independence Day" is coming. We just need to add a few more targets to
the list ...
