Life on Mars in the Ancient Past

Life on Mars in the Ancient Past

It is plausible that in the very distant past Mars was once a fertile planet water, vegetation and other forms of life. On the barren red planet we find many dried up rivers and seas, and often it is said in scientific circles that water is a requirement for life (actually the kind of life we are familiar with). A disaster must have happened that disturbed the ecological system of this planet that would have lead to the existence of all life on the planet, save for possibly any micro-organisms.

Artificial Structures?

In the year 1976 the Viking orbiter took some images of the Cydonia (Mensae) region on Mars which showed a huge humanoid "face" which was approximately 3.6 miles long. NASA's official explanation was that the face is nothing more than a trick of light. Later images however revealed certain curiousities dat could mean that it still may have been artificially made. Whether it would reallly represent a face would be yet another question.

On the newer higher resolution photos by the Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) it looks like the facial features aren't as strongly present as seen on the earlier photos before and some took it as proof that it is nothing more than a natural shaped mensa. However, we should not forget that there are raging heavy sandstorms on the surface of Mars and because of this, this "face" would also be buried below a thick layer of sand, and what something that would lay below a thick layer of sand would always look "natural". Because the remarkable symmetry of the mensa and the smooth looking, steep outlines it has the impression of being artifically carved and also nothing in its direct surroundings shows the same kind of characteristics. Although it seems unlikely, if it indeed was carved into a face, it would seem that the left side (shown right on the image) would be caved in or heavily damaged, possibly due to erosion or the impact of meteors. If one looks really close one could notices details below the sand which look like the pupil of an eye and a nostril, although this nostril is clearly an impact crater.

In the local neighbouring of the "face" there are also more formations which are also so far buried with sand that only the outlines are visible. Many of these formations show such sharp angles that these do not seem to have been naturally shaped, and because of their shape they are similar to the pyramids as of earth, but especially with less or more sides. One of these "pyramids" is informally known as the "D&M pyramid" (seen below), which had been named after its discoverers Vincent Di Pietro and Gregory Molenaar, who were both NASA computer engineers and believed that the "face" was made by an ancient civilization.

Also on other places on Mars there are this kind of formations and also those that initially seem to be mensa like the "face". It could be that these are all artificial formations, which would mean that there would be structures all over Mars, layered with metres of sand and awaiting their discovery.

On the image shown here on the right is a supposedly but currently not yet excavated pyramid complex in Egypt, which had been discovered in August of the year 2012 at satellite images from Google Earth by the researcher and satellite archaeologist Angela Mico from Nord-Carolina. Because these supposed pyramids are also buried by sand storms, they look similar to these pyramidal formations on Mars. The location of this site is currently undisclosed until the site will be officially recognized and properly protected.

Supposed pyramid formations in Egypt

There could be a possible connection between Egypt and Mars; The place Giza, where the three great pyramids are standing, borders to the place Cairo: the capital of Egypt. In ancient times Cairo was the name for the Greek god Aries, later known as Mars by the Romans. He originally was the god of agriculture before he became the god of war. In the Arabic language the place Caro is known as "Al Qahiri", which also means "Mars". Why did the ancient Egyptians name this city to Mars? According to Egyptian chronology, before the time of the pharaoh's, Egypt was founded and led by the gods. Could it be that these so-called "gods" originally built this place on earth in the same style of their former colony on Mars, so that with the red desert sand - which colored red in the sun - and the pyramids it was like a sort of homage or copy?

There are many more strange formations on Mars that are more or less unexplained by current science. In the month of december of the year 2010, another curious formation on Mars had been found on Google's map of Mars. It is situated to the east of the Moreux Crater and can be found by the coordinates: 41 57'46.61N 44 43'35.11E.

It seems to look like a rectanglar formation, possibly a kind of plateau or roof, with sharp edges at 90 degrees, which do not or rarely are formed by nature. This formation might be a building that is covered for the largest part by sand. See the 
video from the discoverer with the user name: "TheFIX2010".)

Zecharia Sitchin about the Face on Mars

Zecharia Sitchin's translation and reconstruction of the autobiography of the Sumerian god Enki, called: "The Lost Book of Enki (2001)", based upon his translation of the Sumerian clay tablets. The story tells, amongst other, about Alalu (possibly known as "Cronus" in Greek mythology); the ruthless former king of the planet Nibiru, who fled to the planet Earth  ("Ki" in Sumerian) after he was overthrown by Anu, who became the new king. Because of the necessarily flight through the astroid belt this was a life threathing concern that had never tried before by the Niburians because of this danger. Probably he preferred to take this risk instead of being captured by king Anu, and also because his research on earth would be a great merit to the inhabitants of Nibiru he hoped that he would be able to reclaim Nibiru in the future. He was appearantly the first inhabitant of Nibiru who came to earth around 500,000 years ago. One hoped that on earth there would be found gold in abdundance, what could be used to repair the atmosphere of their dying planet Nibiru, but this was rather disappointing and most of the gold would be deep inside the earth, which was hard work to get it out. Later Anu's sons Enki (Ea) and Enlil arrived on earth with their crew to mine the gold.

Later Alalu would have fought again with Anu for the authority of the planet Nibiru, which happened this time in the form of an unarmed hand-to-hand wrestling match. Alalu lost the match however and in his frustration he castrated Anu. (Remarkable similarity with Greek mythology were Uranus was castrated by Cronus.) Because of this crime he was punished severly and was banned to the planet Mars. However it was not the intention to kill him he however shortly died on Mars. Possibly because of the awareness that he his punishment was rather too severe and the fact that his life anyway was a great merit for the inhabitants of the planet Nibiru, he was buried with respect inside a huge cave wherein the face of Alalu was carved. By the means of this the cave became a memorial for his heroic journey to the planet Earth, where it seemed that he looked from the planet Mars to the planet Earth. This story reminds one, of course, to the alledged "Face on Mars" from the Cydonia region on Mars, and coincidence or not; the Greek goddess Cydonia is the goddess of heroic endeavour.

Colonists of Mars called the Igigi (see the chapter: "the Sons of God and the Daughters of Men") would have used this specific area of Mars as a temporary mid station for the gold transport from earth to Mars. This could be why there are could be those piramid-like formations and other possible structures which are situated nearby the "Face". (For more about Zecharia Sitchin see the chapter: "Extraterrestrial Visitors".)

"The Face on Mars": the Comic Strip

Here seems to be something that is rather strange: During September in the year 1958 a comic book was published called: "The Face On Mars" (, by the famous comic book author Jack Kirby (1917-1994). This was however 18 years before the discovery of the so called "Face" by the Viking orbiter in the year 1976. Kirby's depiction of his Face on Mars bears a rather striking resemblance to the real one, as far as we can see the face on Mars below its layer of sand. The biggest difference is that the face in the comic is standing upright instead of laying down.; Just compare the broad nose, wide mouth and wide eyes which look as if without sockets.

How could he have known about the face on Mars? Kirby was known to have an obsession with aliens UFOs and ancient astronauts. It is assumed that he was also been inspired by Edgar Rice Burroughs' comic series called: "John Carter of Mars' from the '20's. According to science fiction legend Fritz Leiber, Burrough's himself was influenced by the insights of "Madame" Blavatsky's Theosophical Society, thus likewise Kirby's also could have got the idea from the information of psychic intuitives, or perhaps he himself saw it in a dream or vision.

A complete description of the comic, from the website:

"The Face On Mars", penciled by Jack Kirby and inked by Al Williamson. – On an expedition from the earth’s moon to the planet Mars, an international team of astronauts – led by American Ben Fisher – discover a huge carving of a Martian face – that’s as big as a mountain!

Ascending to the inscrutable statue’s hollow eyes, Fisher plunges inside, where he finds a green, sunlit countryside with cool, rich and breathable air, one which shelters a civilization of ‘magnificent giants.’

Suddenly, the otherworldly city is attacked by insect-like airborne craft, which bomb the giant’s homeland into ruins. Outraged, Fisher blasts away at the potato-like invaders who emerge from the landing aircraft, offering them a taste of their own ‘medicine.’

Appalled by the wanton destruction, Fisher eventually locates a hidden stronghold of the surviving members of the race of Martian giants. As he eavesdrops, the earthman sees one of them pilot a rocket to destroy their enemy’s home base, an unknown planet located somewhere between Mars and Jupiter!

Suddenly, Fisher begins to gasp for breath! Blacking out as he falls into oblivion, Fisher eventually awakens on the floor of the Martian desert, with an oxygen mask strapped to his face, while his expedition-mates hover over him.

Fisher explains that the statue [the Face on Mars] contains ‘a visual history of a race’s heroic death – and the triumph of a surviving memory’. Later, as they pilot their rocket to Jupiter, to earth, Fisher and his team take careful notice of the debris-strewn asteroid belt – ‘the pieces of a planet that blew up between Mars and Jupiter …."

The Boy from Mars

In the year 2004, at the age of seven years old, a Russian boy Boris Kipriyanovich, better known as "Boriska" (little Boris), began to speak around the campfire at an expedition in Medvedetskaya, an anomaly zone located in the north of the Volgograd region. In vivid detail he told the crew about his memories from a past life on the planet Mars; Their spaceships, their travels to different planets, megalithic cities, the legendary ancient civilization of Lemuria, and the Mayan civilisation.

Many of the crew members were stunned by his profound knowledge, his specific terminology and his high intellect for a seven years old boy, and because of this, they didn't believe he was just making this all up. His story lasted for about a hour and a half and was taped by a voice recorder.


Boriska said the planet Mars was habitable when he lived there. However, because the planet lost its atmosphere due to a raging war, its few remaining inhabitants were forced to live in underground cities. He told he often flew in a spaceship to the earth on missions that involved trade and scientific research, including the transportation of water from Earth to Mars in an attempt to restore its atmosphere. This happened with several space ships and he descriped a mother ship as a large cylindrical shaped vessel that could transport smaller space ships. (The cylindrical shape makes one think about the previously Atlantean "Vailx"; another clue in the direction that the Vailx could be based on ancient Martian technology.) In earth's time frame this was during the end of the Lemurian civilization - some 80,000 years ago he thought - when there at one time occured a huge catastrophe when the continent of Lemuria broke apart and eventually disappeared under water. The Lemurians destroyed themselves because they lacked spirituality, "magic" did the rest.

When he was five years old he began to speak about a planet he called "Proserpina", which was broken in bits by a cosmic disaster which happened million years ago. Its inhabitants were transported to the "fifth dimension", a parallel world to our known dimension. Seen from Mars, Boriska did witness the destruction. He told earth is a conscious living being who took care for the children of Proserpina to educate them. At the moment there will be born children who will be able to recognise this planet, who feel themselves "alien". Sometimes they meet each other in dreams.

Later in 2005, there was a new planet discovered that was orbiting beyond Pluto's track, which was also named after the Roman goddess Proserpina, which means "to emerge", but has of course nothing to do with the destroyed planet Boriska talks about. (More about Boriska's story:, and Project Camelot's interview.)

Could there once have been another, now lost planetary body within our solar system? During the 18th century, in the view of the now-discredited "Titius-Bode Law" (a rule that predicts the spacing of the planets in the Solar System), it was considered that once yet another planet had existed in our Solar System between Mars and Jupiter. This planet was given names like "Phaeton" and "Astera" by astronomers. (The Greek word "astra" means "star", and the word "asteroid" is derived from this.) This planet may also have been known as "Maldek" in Theosophical circles.

According to the ancient Sumerian epic of creation: the "Enuma Elish", in the view of Zecharia Sitchin, this was the planet "Tiamat" that was destroyed during a great collision with the planet "Nibiru";
Its largest chunks settled into a new orbit and became the earth (Ki) and the moon (Kingu) respectively, and its smaller debris formed the ring we know today as the "asteroid belt", between Mars and Jupiter. However, part of the text that deals with what was created out of the large half of Tiamat is vague enough to suggest that it also could have been another planet of the size of the earth, like the planet Venus.

Dr. Douglas James Cottrell about Mars

According to the sessions of trance clairvoyant Dr. Douglas James Cottrell there would have been some thirty billion years ago (when the north pole looked to the constellation of the Great Bear) intelligent life on Mars with animals, green vegetation and humanoid beings, before a huge disaster happened were the moons of Mars and Jupiter collided with each other by the planet Mars started to tumble, rotating east to west but also north-east to south-west, until the planet stabilized itself. This tumbling caused fluctuations between severe heat and severe cold by which the planet could not maintain its stability and eventually became a bare dry desert. Mars also moved further out of its orbit, further away from the sun.

The humanoid Martians tried to escape in their space ships to other planets including Venus and planet Earth. Many died in this attempt, but those who arrived on earth survived and became Earthlings. According to Dr. Cottrell there is very little difference between modern man and this "man" from Mars from these times long ago, except for the loss of muscular strenght as a result of the weaker gravity on earth compared to the gravity on Mars.

Dr. Cottrell confirmed the existence of the so called "pyramids" and other artifical structures on Mars, which, according to his sessions, were remnants of Martian architecture. There would have been built dwellings and temples, reflectors and collectors of energy (solar energy and such), and stations for magnetic and anti-magnetic distortion of the pathways or grids on the planet, such as seen in certain temples on earth [temples, pyramids and such] where mica was found in the basis.

Author Wayne Herschel suggested before that both the structures at Abu-Sir in Egypt as the "pyramids" and the "face" on Mars, both mirrorred the star cluster of the Pleiades. Did they have the intention to recreate a similar network in like on Mars?

A transcript from the first session:

"Q: There are some artificial-looking formations on the planet Mars. Was there ever intelligent life on Mars?

A: Indeed there was, before the great collisions in the heavens, you'll say.

Q: How long ago, in earth years, did intelligent life exist on Mars?

A: This is a considerable number if you would examine it, we'll have it thirty-, then we'll have six zeroes and then we have three more zeroes, as to years ago. []

Q: Was there plant and animal life on Mars as well, at the same time?

A: The answer would be with the planet itself [would] be vibrant, alive and sustained life, similar to that of earth. In this regard we could see the planet in a different orbit than its present location and indeed there would be animals or plants; a green vegetation existing on the planet. The answer would be affirmative.

Q: Was the intelligent life human, non-human, or both?

A: Would there be humanoid life on the planet is the question, for we indicated there is animalist life which would be non-human. We would find that there would be humanoid beings on this planet, or that it would be resemblance of the human as you would know the human in its shape or its configuration.

Q: What was the great collision in the heavens that wiped out life on Mars?

A: This would represent certain smaller orbs, or moons as you would know them. The remnants would be found around Saturn, that is due its debri, and as well there would be comets; comets and meteors, that would be somewhat the remnants of this collision. It would be preliminary as to the swinging of the moons as you would know it, and as they would collide, that it would surround Mars and Jupiter. Here in which there would be some collision; There would be a thrusting or an imbalance that allowed that of Mars to move out of its orbit or further away from the sun.

It allowed that as to the planets closest to the sun also to be marginally effected. But to earth itself there would be a migration outward not too much in its orbit, or its elliptical path, but sufficient enough that it - as a co-habitor of life in this solar system - it allowed the planet to cool, for it was extremely hot and humid, it here with the void or "pooling away" - shall we call it - there was a shift outward.
The centrifugical force, if you would understand it in the retaining of the orbit was modulated or affected by this collision as to smaller moons, or spheres as you would see them.

Some of the pot marks on the planets - the earths' moon for instance - and other craters or pot marks, although if it would be noticed; there are less on the planets earth and Mars than there would be on the moon itself, but it would be an indication that some chunks came to earth and there are large craters or pot marks on the earth in different places. And this would be again the result of large chunks of material falling from the sky that would have deciminated and travelled in all direction. But here the result being a weakness, and a shift in the orbits of the planets three or four closest to the sun.
They did shift. There was a closeness in the orbiting of Mars and earth, but also here to Mercury and Venus, you'll say. However, this would to be as to the cause as we would observe from this perspective and going forward and backward in time, observing the events as you have directed you'll say.

Q: When did it occur?

A: It would have occurred when the north pole would have looked to the constellation of the Great Bear [Ursa Major] and it would have been..  in that, it would be thirty and seven to nine zeroes ago you'll say.

Q: Did any of Mars' inhabitants escape to earth or other places?

A: We see during this time that there was a severe wobble and the orbiting, let us say: on a lateral direction east and west, was not quite estabilished as the planet would tumble; rotating east and west, but also tumbling north-east to south-west, until it was stabilized. During this time we would see that there were some escaping or travelling away from the planet. We have ships or devices that would move through air and space, and these would be thrown off or cast off from the planet. These did seem to go away from the solar system as well as it would be to earth itself. There was some migration to other planets, but it was not safe, and therefore many perished. And indeed, many remained and perished you'll say, due to the fluctuations of severe cold and severe heat and here of course the fires that raged on the planet and that of the droughts that continued thereafter. For here a planet needs a certain stability; a certain exposure to the sun to create life and to maintain it, and a fore-fraction of the rotation, which would not allow the heating and cooling to be regulated, than the planet becomes a desert you'll say.

This is evidence in the earth as to some locations also were exposed to extreme sunlight and with dry air, soon even the earth itself becomes dust, to give some idea of this. As to the migration or the attempts and desperation to move to other planets, you would find that some of the technologies - if you could call it that - that came into the world that would deal with magnetic and anti-magnetic vehicles or more like gravity and anti-gravity travel or understandings, were amalgamated from those minds that understood propulsion through gravitational and anti-gravitational means. But when there is rotation and an instability in rotation and these devices tend to not work so well, you'll say, for the disruption of gravity. Gravity tends to push things together and this acts as a bubble - like a bubble in water - it defies the pushing or weight of the water, as it rises to the surface. And likewise would gravity and anti-gravity means work you'll say, to give some simplistic understanding.

To the question; it would appear to be some migration to the planet earth, which was habitable and cooling, for it did not suffer such severe rotations, or wobbling in short periods in time. It tended to change its magnetic poles, or its geographical poles, very slowly. Evidence of this would be in the magnetic lines on old mountains, or "vulcanoes" you'll say; They would show historically the direction of north and south magnetic "lines" you'll say, indicating are observations here that the planet changed its rotation, changed its magnetic poles, but comparitably slowly or in a more controlled way than what would be a planet spinning and tumbling, attempting to come to a rest point in its orbit, which would now a little further away from the sun.

Q: Areas currently exist on Mars with pyramid and other articifical-looking structures. Are any of these remnants of Martian architecture?

A: They are indeed, and they would find the channels and the ice caps, the remnants of great rivers that ran on the planet itself you'll say; indications of water. Then there would be found the remnants of these structures that would be historical or produced or made, rather than by natural occurance you'll say. Hesitate to use the word "man-made", for man is of the earth you'll say. But to the question; they have been built or constructed; Yes to the question.

Q: What other things were built?

A: Those things that would accomodate most any community: there would be dwellings, there would be machinery, and there was tapping into the ground for that of resources, there would be the consumptions of air and water and devices that would utilize the same and control the same. Those devices, or those systems, that would rule and understand the laws of nature, as would be similar used in any planet, save for that they would live more in harmony with the planet. More of a natural harmonic existance, that it would be a few hundred years prior to this time in the earth so to speak, would be in a similar harmony, you'll say.

There would have been dwellings or buildings, temples and there would have been reflectors and collectors of energy; solar and otherwise. There would have been stations for magnetic and anti-magnetic disruption, or pathways or grids on the planet. This can be seen in certain places on the earth; in temples in which there would be found mica in the base of the same. Likewise you would find some formations; still remnants of these substances on Mars you'll say."

However, from these sessions it was not clear if there were already people on earth before or during these times.

Mars in Other Ancient Cultures

Not only in the ancient Sumerian clay tablets can we find clues that mankind, or a part of mankind, may be partly or more of extraterrestrial origin; The Zulu tribe from Africa would have said us that their ancestors would have been indigenous to the red "star" they called "Liitolafisi" which means: "the eye of the brown hyena" which we know as the planet Mars. A very long time ago they would have come to planet Earth in "boats" (spaceships?) where they initially inhabited the Sahara desert when it still was a tropical rainforest. "Unkulunkuli" is the name of their God and is said to be the first "man" and exists in all creation.

Quite possibly there is a connection between the Zulus and the Olmecs from ancient Meso-America, who, according to current historians, were the predecessors of the Mayans, before their crude leaders were banished. We know the Olmecs because the collosal "Olmec heads", which were made with very refined precision and were found below the sand in Veracruz, Mexico. (Probably they were buried later to hide their negative influence since they could probably not or barely destroy or move them.) It cannot escape from one's attention that some of these statues are clearly showing African negroid characteristics, while, according to the current archeological image, there would not have existed a negroid race in the Americas during that time and there would also not have been transatlantic contacts between Africa and America.

Unarius is a non-profit organisation that was founded in the year 1954 by the American electrical engineer Ernest L. Norman (1940-1971), that had the goal to spread a new "interdimensional science of life" that was based upon the principles of four-dimensional physics, obtained through the means of my himself channeled information from intelligent beings that existed on higher planes of frequency. In his short book: "The Thruth about Mars (1956)", he wrote that even up to that day there would still be life on Mars and that there would even be, on a limited scale, "human life" living in underground cities that were connected by each other by gigantic metal tubes of three to five hundred feet in diameter, where long monorail cars could silently and very swiftly pass from one city to the other.

EA close-up from one of the ribbed transparant "tubes" on Mars.

Not until early in the year 2000, the scientific data of the first MGS MOC (Mars Orbiter Camera) was released due to public pressure. Among this information there were photos that showed the surface of Mars. The American author Richard Hoagland discovered miles long ribbed "tubes" on these photos where on certain places one could see the reflection of light. (See the image above.) Due to this the impression came into being that these could be of a transparant material like glass, or maybe some kind of plasic because these tubes seem to be elastic in nature, similar to the hose of a vacuum cleaner. Could these perhaps be the tubes that Norman was speaking about tens of years earlier?

According to Norman the Martians would have originated from another unnamed planet that was dying. More than a million years ago they would have come to Mars and they also started a colony on planet Earth that eventually became the Chinese race by evolution of time. Possibly this referred to the ancient civilization of the legendary continent of Mu or Lemuria, that would have existed prior to Atlantis and that would have existed in the Pacific Ocean before most of the land of this continent sunk due to heavy volcanic eruptions. (According to Dr. trance clairvoyant Douglas James Cottrell this would have happened around the period of 250,000 BC.)

According to the information of Norman, the Mongols and Tatars would have been mostly very fierce roving bands of nomads who were the descendants of the Aryan race. (According to Edgar Cayce and madame Blavatsky, the Aryan race was one of the races that came from Atlantis.) These Martian colonists would have endured a lot of trouble with these tribes. Although they had weapons which could thoroughly and completely decimate these nomadic tribes, yet they refrained from doing so because they disliked intensely to kill their fellow being. He also mentioned in his book that the various dynasties of the Chinese Empire would be traceable to the line of this Martian race.

According to the German writer and researcher Hartwig Hausdorf, the old Chinese emperors themselves emphasized their claim that their ancestors did not came from the Earth, but that they were the descendants of the so-called: "sons of the heaven". (The sons of God?)

It seems that the technology and customs of the Martians, like the knowledge of nature and the building of pyramids, was being kept for a very long time on earth and that civilization of Atlantis would have used it until this knowlegde eventually became lost, possibly as the result of natural catastrophes where according to Plato mainly the illiterate did survive that lived in the mountains.
