The "Hexad" Bright Mounds / Monuments Zone / Cydonia / Mars
The Bright Mounds are a geometrical anomaly that grew out of studies by Hoagland and Torun of the apparent geometric positioning of the proposed artificial structures in Cydonia, e.g. the Face. The Bright Mounds consist of an array of faceted mounds that range between the size of the Great Pyramid of Giza, and twice its size. They are scattered between the much bigger mounds of Hoagland's Cydonia City and part of the way to the D&M Pyramid. Hoagland noted the mounds seemed to be located at the vertices of triangles that were derived from the geometry of the tetrahedron. Analysis by Dr. Horace Crater of all the possible angles between the Bright Mounds finds that the 19.5 degree angle is the most common angle (under a maximum 90 degree cut-off). The 19.5 degree angle is especially unique to tetrahedral geometry. An array of six of the Bright Mounds - the "Hexad" - is particularly rich in tetrahedral triangles. Professor Stanley McDaniels has shown that this "richness" is due to the Hexad mounds being located at the nodes of a unique rectangular grid. The rectangles in this grid are themselves derived from tetrahedral geometry - and when they are arranged in a grid the nodal points automatically produce a large number of tetrahedral triangles. Ten million random computer simulations by Dr. Crater have shown that the Hexad geometry is difficult to replicate as a chance arrangement.
