faces in the sky
    #1762407 - 07/30/03 12:37 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

you?ve all seen this:



raw image of the infamouse "Face on Mars" :rolleyes:



and you?re probably familar with this Hubble image of the Pillars of Creation:



here?s a close up taken from an official NASA website:



beautiful isn?t it?



crop and rotate:



do you see it yet?



I don?t know what to make of it but I can?t get this ghostly image of a woman out of my head. it?s beautiful and haunting. I know it?s just a play of light and shadows but she looks a hell of a lot better than that weird monkey looking dude on Mars.

especially considering that while the face on Mars is a few miles across, this face is much larger than the diameter of the solar system. it?s huge. it?s impermanent. it will eventually be made into a star. but there it is for this brief moment in time.



just thought I?d put it out there...

Those pictures are the most beautiful thing I"ve ever seen.. our Universe is so fucking cool. When I get better at astral projection, I'll definitely getting a better, personal look at all of it.
The face on Mars is also all shadows. I've seen an official NASA picture where they removed the effects of the shadows. The eyes and etc. aren't actually carved out... just a light effect.
Those pictures, though... breathtaking.
Thanks.
Peace.

I think it looks exactly like... a humongously large Rorschach inkblot. :wink:

How in the fucking world could you take a look at those pictures and still be concerned about your own fucking petty problems? Life is too short, too meaningless, to ever need to consider that shit....
Peace.

I see Merlin with his hand out, near the top.
I also see the face, but it is no woman's face.
It appears to be wearing a hood, the nose is big, the eyes look demonic. The face appears to be very old, and very pissed off.
Look in the orangish pictures, especially the second to last one. Right in the middle.
Crazy.
Peace.

And who are you to slight the incomprehensible wonders and complexity present in a Rorschach inkblot? I don't think the size of the inkblot matters. The universe is a breathtaking marvel at any scale.

Human suffering, and our day-to-day affairs aren't as breathtaking to me as those beautiful pictures.
Who am I to sight those wonders? I'm me. That's enough for me, to voice my opinions.
Peace.

I see it now...

...but I'm not impressed. Why not? Because the universe is big enough for that kind of coincidences to happen. We could find faces in pretty much anything if we tried hard enough.

Once a friend and I went camping and we saw a crazy face in the fire. It was the end of this log that had turned into a glowing orange ember, and there was a perfectly shaded bald man's face on the end of the log. His eyes looked like they were darting around...it was pretty crazy, definitely the most realistic looking face I've seen in nature like that.

He visited with us for about 5 minutes before crumbling into the fire. Very neat stuff. Peace.

I know you people will think that I am totally wacky, but...

I SEE FACES ON PEOPLE!

There, I said it and I am not ashamed.

yeah yeah, I know it's just coincidence. but more has been made of less than this. you know all those people who see the Virgin Mary in a tortilla or a tree trunk or old window or something and think that God is sending them a message :rolleyes: looking in tortillas for miracles. they should look up once in a while, the Miracle is all around them.

and btw, it does look like a woman, not a demon. you could even see her hair blowing in the breeze to the right in the last pic.
