The thrust of the book is in two parts, with an underlying subtext. The first part of the book is a "review" (biased from the outset) of the Cydonia artefacts. While the authors are at pains later in the book to stress they are not advocating the artefacts are of artificial origin, their writing points entirely in the opposite direction, citing government cover-ups, deliberate sabotaging of multi-million dollar missions to Mars (Mars Observer) and mounting none-to subtle character attacks on the likes of Daniel Goldin, Michael Malin of Malin Space Systems (operaters of the Mars Observer and now the Mars Global Surveyor) and even Carl Sagan. While in later chapters the authors half-heartedly withdraw some of their earlier accusations (particularly with reference to Dr. Malin), the damage has already been done, and the status and impartially of such individuals as Dr. Malin have been suitably undermined.
This is perhaps the clearest indication of what might have been strongly differing viewpoints among the authors - one perhaps strongly in favour of the Cydonia artefacts being of intelligent origin, another not being so convinced and somewhat more open-minded.
The second thrust of the book is a discussion of planet-impacting comets and asteroids, and here the book hits more of an even stride - even if the authors prefer to limit their own thinking and merely report the thoughts, conjectures and concerns of others. Where the authors do inject their own thoughts on the matter, it is largely to whitter on about Cydonia and mystical geometry once more.Read more ›
Hancock delivers the right information at a good pace and does not spoil the read with unnecessary eggheadspeak.
It is undeniably riveting to learn that vast pyramidal monuments on the surface of Mars, one estimated at 1/2 mile in height, are situated roughly in relation to the poles as are those similar, but considerably smaller in scale, at Giza. The mind will find it hard to rest after reading about this and many other jaw-dropping observations.
The computer-enchanced photographs are startling. The illustrative diagrams are easy to absorb.
It matters that the book is read widely. It will change fundamental notions for the reader about what is means to be human on this planet.
Is it possible that the same civilisation which made that planetary beacon on Mars is responsible for the other mathematical oddities on Earth which cannot be explained by even present day science?
Or is there actually a 'Keeper' out there dropping hints to the last of the sentient beings in this Solar System before the ultimate wipeout happens....?
Or perhaps for the more cynical readers, correlations and coincidental occurrence of unnatural mathematical concepts like pi, phi, square roots of prime numbers are just a big joke from Mother Nature? (I don't think so)
Read and find out.
With plates dipicting actual, computer generated and illustrated pictures, even those starting out on researching the Mars mystery will find this a valuable addition to their studies
