Data source NASA MRO Mars Imaging(PSP_007781_1410)
Location;Mars,Hellas Planitia
Mars; Lat: -38.4° Long: 55.8°

This is a huge file created from my original image that I cropped from a MRO image file.
The image took over 6 hours to import, scale, convert from jp2 to png, save and upload and allows for much greater zooming of this interesting area.
There are strange banding effects that run diagonally throughout the area and I have
spotted that these originate from the source
file but they are slightly chaotic so must be present in the actual area itself which is very
odd indeed if this is the case.

You can find the relevant linked information to this article in my previous publication at the below link
One might ask if this Image is so revealing as it surely is regarding the possibility of Martian intelligent activity recorded upon its surface then how come this has not come to light till now?
Well there are a great number of reasons why these Mars reconnaissance orbiter(MRO) images have not been examined to the last detail and this discovery came as a complete surprise to me to be honest as I was interested in researching the many towers of rock that are present in Hellas Planitia that are very interesting in the recurrent nature of densities and size though not in this particular area that is spotlighted in this article.
Below are some of the many reasons for obscurity of information listed.
(1).....Mars has been assessed as completely void of a life sustaining Atmosphere and temperature for the longest part of its existence and though the temperature extremes present now would not prevent adapted life from holding out, the cosmic and other radiation levels along with the very low pressure are thought to prevent more complex life from existing now though not in Mars past.
(2).....The average affordable personal computer back in 2008 could not handle the average M.R.O. hirise file complete for viewing as the size is on average between 200 to 600 megabytes.
(3)....Programs that are currently available for handling jp2 files are woefully inadequate for scanning quickly by any human observer including the on-site application viewer that the hirise site utilises and I personally had to convert these files from jpeg2 to png to allow much better software to deliver faster scanning speeds using the best computer around currently, the human mind.
(4).....Gigapan was not around until its infancy in 2008 and this great site allows for the fast zooming and searching of huge image files and is used by many professionals and educational
institutions because of its powers of observation, this is what I used to research these files and this site with its software is far superior to the hirise adopted browser software for handling large files thus I cannot understand why closer examination of these files has not occurred till now on gigapan.
(5)....There is currently no science around that covers the possibility of intelligent constructions possible on other planets
, mainly because mankind currently is unable to technologically reach other worlds except the nearest planets with limitations in both
physical freedoms of search and discovery and grossly reduced apertures of scientific expectation have resulted in no reason to consider such sciences necessary.
(6).....There are no programs that can scan image files for recurring geometries and other important features as the complexities involved
with visual interpretation and intelligence are the most difficult to program.I have been a programmer myself for many years and I
can say straight away this would be a hugely complex piece of software to design but would be possible but very expensive in time and money
which could only be done by a large business or administration with the spirit
of discovery engaged, sadly this is missing currently other than those undertakings that the limited resources of great foundations like NASA and ESA will allow, plus I suspect that a great deal of scepticism resides in the hallowed halls of contemporary extra-terrestrial sciences...
(7).....There are over 10,000 files in the MOR database and this does not represent the whole surface of Mars which still has not been examined completely (approx <10% has been closely scanned into datasets)and the image in this article that is the featured squares of Mars represents only less then one percent of one file so this really is a one in a million chance finding.
Since the dawn of mankind we have questioned and debated a multitude of sensual information and upon learning to share and remember our
experiences and creating the technology to store information we have fostered sciences to enshrine collections of associations to the advancement of our species that so relies upon its knowledge and wisdom to gain the best that can be acquired from our environment and each other.
There are however areas in our understanding of the whole of what is known that are so remote from our senses that although we can never directly see, taste, feel, touch or hear them we conclude that they do exist as we either predict them and/or detect them using technologies that are in effect super sensory like the electron microscope, radio telescopes or particle accelerators or we logically equate there existence using a given number of formulations based upon associated detectable sensory information or "observations"
as is the preferred term.
So I bring the reader this far and have you wonder why anyone would bother to illustrate the process of Science and to what worth and well you might ask as there is no strict science that looks at science itself. The answer to this riddle is quite simple really, we are only capable of conceiving that which we can mentally
engage though our senses or super senses but we can never hope to learn anything from that which we either fail to reach or fail to truly engage and the Latin for "do not know" is actually "ignorance" and not the more popular notion of ignorance meaning the act of either turning away from or rejecting outright.
To summarise , when a person or persons attempt to set out to find new discoveries
that are not known to science, they will always meet the ignorance of mankind, not because it is deserved but simply because people "do not know" and on that basis
all can be excused until the point in time when these things are truly known and accepted.
There is not and never will be one well known scientist that simply rubber stamped what was already known, accepted and understood as every single famous scientist made a new discovery and to borrow from a great quote from a well known classic sc-fi film, the day the Earth stood still, "Great science and scientists are not built on faith but on curiosity and perseverance"

    As a recent addition to the community of the many intelligent cultures of the jewelled threads that weave this great galaxy we must change our ways and develop and adapt to our many challenges of responsibility to not only each other and the bio-groups that we share this planet with, but to learn to reach out to the planets and then other stars and cultures so that we may learn new understandings and technologies that will one day change us forever as is will be written in our destiny less we fail as a species here and elsewhere.

    If you think about it when any cosmic species sets about space exploration there has to be a defining moment when a reshuffle occurs in the scientic ranks involved and this time is when the geologists take a back seat and astro-archaeology comes into being though it must always be a huge reality check for all beings concerned Q.E.D.

    I have all the admaration in the world for NASA and all the space agencies involved with Mars exploration but sending rovers to look into craters and ignoring other important sites like this is the equivalent of sending two team of scientists on Earth on different discovery missions, one to a sand pit which is what the average crater system is in all fairness and sending one to Egypt to a find a lost Pharaohs tomb, its an easy decision for me ;-)
