Mars – The Dog-Faced ‘Star’
The planet Mars is full of unexplained mysteries, several of which are graphically illustrated in “The Gravity and Topography of the Terrestrial Planets” by Mark A. Wieczorek, using a high order spherical harmonic function fitted to the actual data. The images are in a Mollweide Progection which displays the entire surface with the data color-coded.
Figure 1 shows the overwhelming dominance of the Tharsis Bulge on the Martian geoid (gravity). Comprising an enormous positive gravity anomaly surrounded by a wide, low gravity ‘moat’. This anomalous mass is the residual of what was the ‘nose’ of the ‘Dog Star’ represented by the deity Anubis, in ancient Egyptian texts, last seen orbiting only 33,800 km from the Earth in 687 BC. The Tharsis uplift was created by the tidal effect of a very close encounter with proto-Venus around 3700 BC and had remained greatly elevated until Mars left the vicinity of the Earth, at which time it began to settle isostatically to its present elevation. The current data is not sufficiently accurate to determine that it is still settling, the understanding of which might provide a clue to its recent formation.
At the time of the encounter between priori-Mars and proto-Venus, both were distorted into ‘tear-drop’ shapes due to the tidal effect of the other, but the more massive proto-Venus was (and still is) essentially a sphere of molten rock with a thin crust ‘floating’ on it, and therefore immediately settled back into its current, almost perfectly spherical shape. On the other hand, priori-Mars, the most ancient terrestrial planet, which was full of life at the time, had a very thick mantle, and the resulting uplift remained throughout Cyclic Catastrophism, having only begun to settle to its current shape since the last encounter (687 BC). In spite of the recognition of this anomalous uplifted mass, not a single astrophysicists has proposed this obvious explanation of this feature because they are blinded to any notion of close encounters between planets by the ‘grand assumption’, otherwise known as the uniformitarian paradigm, that the planets are all 4.6 billion years old and have remained in their current orbits for that entire time.
Another unexplained feature of Mars, its topography, is shown in Figure 3, with the color scale indicating km above and below a median value, from the same paper. It shows that the entire northern third of the planet is ‘deflated’ by about 7 km relative to the rest of the planet. The elevation difference is so significant that the line, or narrow zone, between the sunken ‘Northern Plains’ and the ‘Southern Highlands’ is called the ‘dichotomy boundary’. No astrophysicist in the world can explain this shape! Interestingly, the topographic coefficient representing this global dichotomy, called the J2 term, has been mathematically removed (set to 0.0) from the Figure 1 data, in order to show the admittedly enormous significance of the Tharsis anomaly on the geoid.
Amazingly, ancient texts, which focused largely on observations of the ‘dog-faced star’, 530 times the area of the full Moon as it orbited the Earth, explain how it’s bulging nose, present before priori-Mars’ first encounter with the Earth, contributed to the gradual ‘flattening’ of the northern third of Mars over 3,000 years, when it orbited the Earth. This is a perfect example of the superior astrophysical knowledge of the first hundred generations of all of mankind over modern academics. Each time (there were 100) Mars approached the Earth and became locked in a geostationary orbit over Mt. Kailas, the tidal effect of the Earth on the ‘nose of the dog’ (technically, the anomalous mass on Mars equator), caused the spin axis of the outer shell (the lithosphere) of Mars to remain oriented toward the Earth, i.e. to keep the anomalous mass always perpendicular to its orbital radius, like a huge spinning top. This resulted in the concentration of the tidal effect of the Earth to be concentrated at the north pole of Mars.
The first event of each capture was the drawing of all the water in the northern hemisphere of the originally living planet toward the northern ocean, creating the enormous outflow channels and a permanent tide – a minimum energy configuration. Months later, melted subsurface rock was drawn to the surface, creating the northern island, primarily through a huge vent at its exact north pole. Subsequently an enormous lava fountain shot some 2000 km into the air (down toward the Earth) as illustrated by the bas reliefs of Akhenaten worshipping Aten (Mars), aided by the formation of a myriad of entwined vertical lava tubes and supported primarily by the tidal effect of the Earth.
During the 3,000 period when the planet orbited the Earth the convulsions within it blasted enormous masses of rock from all depths within the northern third of the planet, including nickel-iron from the outer core to the Earth and into space. This material forms the regolith and maria on the Moon, is the source of all meteorites, meteor showers and deposits of rare earth on the Earth, is the source of all earth approaching bodies, and has formed the thin outer layer of Mercury. Also a great amount has fallen into the atmosphere of the Sun, creating the illusion, based on its absorption spectra that the Sun and the carbonaceous meteorites have similar compositions and are therefore primordial. The loss of this material and the resulting weakening of the northern mantle has been a factor in the flattening of the northern third of Mars shown in Figure 2. The Rg Veda describes the enormous mass of material observed being blasted everywhere, primarily from the north pole lava column (Purusha) as follows:
All existences are a quarter of him and three quarters of him are that which is immortal in the sky (Mars). He was then diffused everywhere over things which eat and things which do not (the regolith on the Moon and planets).
The ubiquitous presence (meteorites,Moon, Sun) of the material blasted from the northern hemisphere of Mars, as described in this passage, has led scientists to the assumption that the entire solar system is 4.6 billion years old, when, in fact, this is just the age of Mars. Since proto-Venus was created by an impact on Jupiter some 5,700 years BP , the event which triggered 3,000 years of Cyclic Catastrophism, it is clear that each terrestrial planet has a unique age, and consequently that the age of the solar system is unknown, actually indeterminable.
Mercury – The Former Solid Core of Mars-
In addition to the large mass of rock and iron blasted from the northern hemisphere during the Cyclic Catastrophism, there was a single, much larger mass lost from priori-Mars at its conclusion about 687 BC. The surface feature on Mars which was associated with this huge mass ejection is noted in the paper cited above simply as a ‘rift valley’ (Valles Marineris) with a negative gravitational anomaly, seen as a narrow dark gash just east of the Tharsis Bulge. In most papers on Mars, it is not considered important, in spite of the fact that it extends a distance along the equator which is one fifth the circumference of the entire planet.
It was certainly considered important to the ancient Egyptians. Just before the solid core exited the planet, it protruded through this fault and was called ‘the eye of Ra (priori-Mars)’. A comparison of the ‘eye of ra’ hieroglyph with the Tharsis Bulge leaves no doubt as to this association. Actually, the Valles Marineris is an enormous fault that was created at the time of priori-Mars’ close encounter with proto-Venus, as a result of the tidal stretching out of the nose of the dog, the uplifting of the Tharsis Bulge. There are actually a series of faults that originate at Tharsis and extend around the planet toward its antipode. This slighter uplift on the side opposite the Tharsis Bulge is also present in Figure 1. as the yellow areas at both the east and west extremes, and reinforces the tidal uplift idea presented above.
The great sudden loss of mass in 687 BC, observed by everyone on Earth at the time, was the final ejection of the solid core of priori-Mars through the Valles Marineris fault. This was the means by which priori-Mars left its geosynchronous orbit at the end of the first ninety-nine encounters with the Earth. According to Egyptian texts the solid core (Hathor) zoomed low around the Earth to the east as the outer shell drifted slowly away from the Earth to the west. This ‘slingshot maneuver’ (NASA was obviously not the originator) was the origin of the ‘mythical’ speed of Mercury (Roman), Hermes (Greek), Hathor (Egyptian) and Sarama (Vedic). The two recombined eight days later and priori-Mars re-entered its orbit around the Sun. The íncomplete planet, Mars, we observe today resulted from the failure of the outer shell and solid core to re-combine because of a deflection by the Moon or proto-Venus. As a result, the original outer shell collapsed in on itself and drifted to the outer solar system, and is the planet shown in the figures above. The solid core, under the laws of conservation of orbital angular momentum and kinetic energy, drifted into the inner solar system and after interacting with proto-Venus for several centuries the two settled into their current orbits.
This scenario leads to the conclusion that the reduced elevation of the northern plains is due to a combination of 3,000 years of mass ejections which compromised the northern third of the mantle so that when the solid core left the planet it collapsed inward to a greater degree than the more rigid southern highlands. Further support is provided by the complete absence of a solid inner core on Mars in spite of its great age (see Mars: A New Core-Crystallation Regime Science 1 June 2007: 1323-1325). The loss of the solid core also coincided with the loss of Mars’ global magnetic field, which, contrary to current belief originates from a supercurrent in the solid core, not from a ‘dynamo effect’ in the liquid outer core. The fact that the solid iron Mercury still exhibits a global magnetic field proves this point, and explains the origin of the geomagnetic field of the Earth.
