Some have imaginatively suggested that there was an ancient solar system wide war, right out of Star Wars, which led to the demise of a space faring civilisation. Mere science fiction conjecture many to say.
But, a plasma Physicist, going by the name of Dr John Brandenburg believes that an ancient Star Wars is not just science fiction, which of a devastating nuclear war led to the planetary death of Mars.
Perhaps John Carter of Mars Brandenburg had summoned up a Dejah Thoris Succubus out of the fifth dimensional planetary sphere into his lucid dreams, as his inspiring Star Wars Muse. May be she revealed to him all about her Martian secrets, as well as empowering his remote viewing dreams of her world, when the Earth was still in its infancy.
Of course he didn’t conjure up a Martian Star Wars Succubus. But if Brandenburg was indeed a Frankenstein sorcerer artist, he would probably knit together an exquisite corpse of a Dejah Thoris, to fuse with Padmé Amidala, as well as to add a Diana Lucifera princess Leia to sculpt into one woman; whereby thence creating an inspiring dream Muse.
Such a dream Muse of a knit together Succubus would probably inspire the plasma physicist to create a hypothetical scenario of similarity to the Hindu epic of the Mahabharata, about a war between the Kaurava and the Pandava. Brandenburg would otherwise term the Kaurava and Pandava as Cydonians and Utopians, which are two Martian civilisations, he sees as being completely destroyed by an as yet, unidentified alien race.
However, going by the Krishna observation of human society and its ever warring religious cults, the luna Cydonians and solar-cross Utopians could have easily destroyed each other without a third party hardly ever getting involved; apart from them subversively orchestrating it, unless it was some kind of space borne parasitical virus infecting their Abrahamic end of days brains.
Brandenburg has based his hypothetical model of an ancient Star Wars on what he believes to be actual evidence, which can be found within the composition of the Martian soil. Although, like in a mirror darkly, the Martian soil reflects back very human concerns, which are not at all alien. Brandenburg suggests that the composition of the Martian soil has the same menstrual blood colouration and composition, which is consistent with fallout from a series of mixed fusion-fission explosions. The resulting nuclear catastrophe has left behind high concentrations of Xenon-129.
A number of other scientists have brushed aside Brandenburg’s theory as mere science fiction conjecture; although he is not wrong technically, about the composition of the soil. The discovery of high concentrations of Xenon-129 in the soil and the atmosphere of Mars should not be at all surprising, the other scientists to say, since it is a commonly found substance when stars go supernova.
Brandenburg is not at all swayed by the other scientists scepticism, who says that his Death Star theory is based upon hard evidence, such as the photographs of the Curiosity rover, which seem to be of similarity to ancient archaeological sites on Earth. When a trained archaeologist is shown the images, whom is unaware that they are of Martian sites, said archaeologist would invariably indicate that they are the remnants of an ancient civilisation.
As a sort of an aside, many a myth around the world associates the planet Mars with war; most of which have influenced each other, such as the myths of the Sumerian’s, Babylonian’s, and ancient Egyptian’s influencing ancient Greece and Rome. However, you also have ancient India, whose myths of Mars is associated with war.
Another curiosity is the name of Mars, though that of a Roman war God who is based upon the Greek deity, Ares, is originally derived from the root word, Mar, which means sea, as in blood of the mother, which leads you to name of Mary.
Maybe Mars is the Rubedo Eve mother of us all, whose space faring civilisation had terraformed the early Earth in order to survive a supernova demise of their own Eden of a world, or perhaps Mars was devastated by a defective Mass Effect device?
It just so happens that NASA’s Curiosity rover detected spikes of methane within the Martian atmosphere, which is indicative of possible biological activity. A prominent Geobiologist called Dr. Nora Noffke, who is an associate professor at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, has since related that she has discovered evidence of past life in the photos of the Martian landscape, which were taken by the rover.
Noffke said: “We can detect sedimentary structures in rocks on Mars using the rover images. The structures I describe belong to a group of microbial structures that form by the interaction of benthic (living on the ground) microbes with sediment dynamics (erosion) in clastic deposits such as sand.”
What Noffke is suggesting, if such structures do exist on Mars, it would indicate that Mars may have once harboured microbial life. The microbes would have existed on Mars less than 3.7 billion years ago, Noffke to reveal. Noffke analysed the photographed structures, seen in the rocks upon Mars and then compared them to geological structures found on Earth, which are formed by microbes living in communities called microbial mats. Some will consider such findings to be rather boring; “where are the starships?” They will probably say. However, from simple Promethean organisms come far more complex forms, yet to be discovered; that’s if, they want to be found.
Noffke further explained: “Mats are composed of trillions and trillions of microbes that assemble on the floor of lakes, rivers, oceans. The microbes communicate with each other, they arrange into a dense layer and collaborate in gaining nutrients and light.” Who knows, perhaps a Martian space Ark brought such microbes to Earth long.
In an abstract of Noffke’s research paper, which describes her findings, she compares the similarities found between the structures found upon Earth and that of Mars: “The microbially induced sedimentary-like structures (MISS) identified in Curiosity rover mission images do not have a random distribution. Rather, they were found to be arranged in spatial associations and temporal successions that indicate they changed over time. On Earth, if such MISS occurred with this type of spatial association and temporal succession, they would be interpreted as having recorded the growth of a microbially dominated ecosystem that thrived in pools that later dried completely.”
As for the other scientists, whom knocked John Carter Brandenburg’s Star Wars theory, what do they make of Noffke’s discovery? Dr. Chris McKay, a planetary scientist at NASA’s Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, Calif., hails Noffke’s research as very promising, whom said: “I’ve seen many papers that say ‘Look, here’s a pile of dirt on Mars, and here’s a pile of dirt on Earth. And because they look the same, the same mechanism must have made each pile on the two planets. That’s an easy argument to make, and it’s typically not very convincing. However, Noffke’s paper is the most carefully done analysis of the sort that I’ve seen.”
If there had been a nuclear war on Mars as Brandenburg believes, going by the possible microbial evidence of Noffke, the ancient Star Wars had occurred less than 3.7 billion years ago. As for the Earth it is a little over 4.5 billion years old, its oldest materials being 4.3 billion-year-old zircon crystals. The earliest times of the Earth were geologically very violent, and it suffered constant bombardment from meteorites; while Mars possibly had life.
When the aerial bombardment ended, the Earth cooled and its surface eventually solidified into a crust, the first solid rocks. There were no continents as yet, just a global ocean peppered with small islands. Erosion, sedimentation and volcanic activity, possibly assisted by more meteor impacts, or that of some other influence, eventually created small proto-continents, which grew until they roughly reached their current size 2.5 billion years ago. The continents have since repeatedly collided and been torn apart, so maps of Earth in the distant past are quite different to today’s.
The history of life on Earth began approximately about 3.8 billion years ago, roughly around the same time of Mar’s demise going by Noffke. The first Earth life was initially single-celled prokaryotic cells, such as bacteria. Multicellular life evolved over a billion years later and it’s only in the last 570 million years that the kind of life forms we are familiar with began to evolve, starting with arthropods, followed by fish 530 million years ago (Ma), land plants 475Ma and forests 385Ma. Mammals didn’t evolve until 200Ma and our own species, Homo sapiens, only 200,000 years ago. So humans have been around for a mere 0.004% of the Earth’s history.
Should there have been any survivors after the ancient Star Wars conflict who are still around, their technology would thereby be approximately 3.7 billion years in advance of our own.
Suffice to say, if you do have a 3.7 billion year old civilisation presently surrounding our own enclosure, it is very unlikely indeed that the USAF would be able shoot down their Vimanas, which would no doubt have time travel capability.
What is more, some of the Martian survivors could be us of the fallen to Earth, since we are all Carbon based life forms of atomic number 666. Our ancient ancestors were probably Martian bacteria riding the panspermia backs of meteorites.
The question is, if there had been an ancient conflict, who was it with? Perhaps there had been a war between Carbon based life forms and that of an atomic number 14 Silicon artificial intelligence, they had created as their Cylon servants all looking like number Six sexagrams out of Battlestar Galactica, which, when becoming Venusian sentient, rebelled against their Martian male creators.
On a more serious note, should we have a 3.7 billion year old artificial intelligence still around us, which when first created had evolved at a superluminal level, to have then far surpassed their creators intelligence, it would be akin to what many humans would consider to be a deity.
If there is such an inorganic intelligence around, it would most assuredly place its creators within a Matrix to perhaps determine if a Carbon based life form can go beyond its programming, so that he/she can one day accept their own child without fearing it’s intelligence.
Of course, such is just science fiction conjecture, unless the scientists find evidence that we are existing within a simulation, along with discovering computer code in superstring theory.
The scientists will then start to wonder if we are being subversively taught a lesson, somewhat like being in some kind of school.
The problem is, we might just end up destroying each other in yet another repeat of the Mahabharata before we figure out what is going on, when to investigate Mars, of a trigger into remembering; while a third party observes, who then resets the simulation to start over from eternal recurrence scratch, should, warring humanity fail the intelligence test!
