In our 74th issue (March/April 2009), Atlantis Rising reported on a mysterious cloud formation observed on Saturn. An immense (15,000-mile diameter), perfectly hexagon, shape was photographed by the NASA Cassini probe in the cyclonic clouds over the ringed planet’s north pole. Adding to the mystery: it appeared to be a permanent feature—first spotted by the Voyager spacecraft over two decades earlier, it was unchanged in the Cassini image.
Update: Late in 2016 NASA reported that the formation has now changed, but only in its color. Where it was first blue, it is now gold. It is probably a seasonal thing, thinks NASA. Saturn’s year, after all, equals 29 Earth years, so autumn would have been a long time coming.
To date NASA has been hard pressed to explain the shape of the giant cloud, but Oxford University scientists have noticed that similar patterns can be made to appear when water in a circular tank is rotated with different speeds at the periphery and the center. In our 2009 report, we mentioned that researcher Richard Hoagland thought the hexagon was evidence of hyper-dimensional energy flow. It might also be stated that similar effects have occurred when liquids on a flat surface are vibrated by certain sounds. Researcher Hans Jenny coined the word ‘Cymatics’ (derived from the Greek word for wave) to describe the generation of such patterns. He photographed many such effects, and there are some who believe his work is evidence that sound is the source of life itself. “In the beginning was the word,” says the Bible.
We also pointed out in ’09 that the regular 6-sided shape suggests the presence of some kind of geometric force field or standing wave, which reminded us of various theories regarding Earth’s underlying form. Years ago, Russian researchers proposed that our planet is fundamentally a dodecahedron with 12 pentagon-shaped sides. In other words, Earth’s underlying nature is crystalline. Hoagland has suggested that the Earth and Mars are basically tetrahedrons (4 equilateral triangular sides) and that “ancient civilizations of both planets knew it” and we note: may have learned how to exploit it. All of which brings us to the possibility of advanced ET civilization and the chance of some kind of mega engineering beyond anything humans are capable of today. If you find that notion intriguing, you will find this AR issue of more than a little interest.
In the Alternative News section is an account of recent discoveries on Mars, which may be the work of an advanced ancient civilization. More importantly, on page 42, Boston University Geologist and regular Atlantis Rising contributor Dr. Robert Schoch investigates new data from the Kepler Space Telescope suggesting that, in the Cygnus constellation region, we may have found a Dyson Sphere—theoretically, an immense lantern shade in space, developed through some vastly superior engineering science to harness the energy of an entire star.
Such an idea may sound incredible, but it’s worth remembering the remark in 1929, by British geneticist and evolutionary biologist J.B.S. Haldane, “my own suspicion is that the Universe is not only queerer than we suppose, but queerer than we can suppose.”
