It’s a hoax, but what if it wasn’t, could anyone ever believe it?

Belief and perception are strange things indeed.

Take the below interesting story (to me anyway) for example (source: Above Top Secret, specific page here).

Arecibo Radio Telescope, Puerto Rico

Since a number of years, I have been pretty intrigued by the famous ‘reply’ to the Arecibo message. Though it has been mentioned in passing earlier here on ATS, but it hasn’t received the attention I thought it deserves.

That said, in 1974, a powerful broadcast was beamed into space from the Arecibo Radio Telescope, Puerto Rico. The transmission consisted of a simple pictorial message aimed at the globular star cluster M13. This cluster is roughly 21,000 light-years from us, near the edge of the Milky Way galaxy, and contains approximately a third of a million stars.

This was a very powerful emission, equivalent to a 20 trillion watt omni directional broadcast using Arecibo’s megawatt transmitter attached to its 305 meter antenna, concentrating the beam in a very narrow funnel of the sky. The emission, that could be detectable just about anywhere in the galaxy within that funnel, would have been detectable by a receiver similar in size to Arecibo’s. This transmission was the strongest man-made signal ever sent.

The message consisted of 1679 bits, arranged into 73 lines of 23 characters per line. The “ones” and “zeroes” were transmitted by frequency shifting at the rate of 10 bits per second and was transmitted at a frequency of 2380 MHz and modulated by shifting the frequency by 10 Hz. The total broadcast was less than three minutes.

This was the pictorial message sent…

The most interesting portion was the one that represented humanity.

The element in the center represents a human.

the average height of a person: 1764 mm.
The element on the right depicts the size of the
Human population in 1974, around 4.2 billion.

Chilbolton Face: August 13, 2001

A week before the Chilbolton Code formation appeared, an eerie face image appeared in the field, not far from where the Code was to appear. From ground level it looked like an undecipherable mess. The image was created almost like a newspaper photograph, with dots in various sizes giving an impression of depth when viewed from a distance.

When a helicopter passed overhead, the image became perceivable. It is an odd image, vaguely reminiscent of the infamous Face on Mars. If the bottom of the Chilbolton Code refers to the 1999 formation for more detail, the center of the Code, where one can see what appears to be a arge-headed humanoid, may refer to the near-by face image for more detail. If this is the case, then the senders of the message sent along a snap shot.

Notice the resemblance?

The Reply

It is so named because it appears to be a response to the Arecibo message that appeared in a farmland next to the Chilbolton radio telescope, home of SETI in Hampshire, UK, on 19 August 2001. It was 75 feet wide and 120 feet long.

Now let’s take a look at this ‘reply’ which had taken 27 years from the time it was transmitted. This is shown as an animated image of the first transmission, slowly transposed with the ‘ET’ response. Note the slight difference in the shape of the heads!

The reply had a few differences. Two that stand out are:

For one, the humanoid has a far larger head. There is now an extra strand on the right side of the DNA double-helix and another, less obvious, change is in the binary coding of the number of nucleotides in DNA itself (in the center).

The human genome has 4,293,917,614, or nearly 4.3 billion nucleotide sequences, while the mystery genome sequence has 4,294,966,190, or 1,048,576 (one million) more nucleotide sequences than human DNA.

Red Setter, a world expert on DNA research, has made a very interesting observation that he made only after intensive personal research stimulated by the odd DNA images in the Chilbolton Code formation. He notes that:
“The central part of the Chilbolton pictogram shows that a DNA double helix as found on Earth, with 10 base pairs per turn, has been replaced on one side by a novel single-stranded helix with just 6 bases per turn.

I had to work hard for several days, to discover that the single-stranded helix with 6 bases per turn refers to 2′, 5′-linked RNA or DNA, as opposed to the normal 3′, 5′ variety. This is known to hardly any molecular biologist, and I found out only by making an accurate model”.

    You call it a hoax in the title but don’t explain the proof or stand to one side or the other. There’s no assured proof its real, no.. but to be honest there are many things we do not know in this universe. Who’s to say someone didn’t pick it up mid-way to its target, there are stars in between the particular cluster and us, Or (and I’m going crazy with this one…) picked up the transmission in orbit the day we sent it and waited for a better time to place the reply. Maybe a little far-fetched but no more so than putting a man on the moon to a person of the Renaissance era, no?.Don’t be misleading, state the information with the details and let the readers decide

    Otherwise though, its a good article on the subject matter.

      I don’t need to prove an elephant is an elephant neither do I have to prove an elephant is not a mouse. I’m taking it ab initio that it’s a hoax. If you want, you or any other reader can leave your mind open as to whether or not this is code was sent. I’m just wondering if we had proof it was true, would we be able to accept it?

    Well, for those unable to accept the Arecibo reply for what it was — a reply, that is — perhaps 12/21/2012 will leave little to doubt about what our true history is. Begins as an intuition, becomes a hunch, and eventually will become part of our collective consciousness.

    Karen. How do you know it was a reply? How do you know it wasn’t just a cosmic explosion, or some instability in the electronics or some other explanation? MY movile phone turned off my TV set. Electrical devices can pick up interference.

    Re: Dec 21st 2012… perhaps not.

    I was ready and willing to believe until I saw the alien depiction of their form, complete with “eye holes”. That for me was the instant give-away – the eye-holes. Each part of our message to the aliens was reciprocated EXACTLY by the “aliens”, varying only where a difference in comparison existed. We did not include a representation of where the eyes were to be found on our human form. So why did they? Did the “aliens” assume that we humans did not have any eyes, and feel it important to show us – “Look, where you have no eyes, we have two big ones”? The inclusion of these cliche alien eyes is laughable. Silly hoaxters. You almost had me.

    The Alien head thing was particularly silly wasn’t it. That it conforms to the Hollywood depiction of aliens. UFO buffs will probably retort that it’s ‘cos Hollywood (and TV) is depicting real aliens, at which point I can’t help but fail to turn away.

    Please research this subject a little more—it was never proven to be a hoax. It was typical of most crop circle phenomenon- in the fact there was unexplainable levels of magnetism and radiation. Also, the plants being bent at a perfect 90 degree angle at the first node- these are just a few things that make crop circles a phenomenon that is still being researched by various teams of the best minds in the world.

    The information presented in the Chilbolton reply is not very thorough either…the representation of the solar system wasn’t our solar system as stated in the diagram. It was decoded that they lived on the 3rd, 4th, and 5th planet of their solar system- the sixth and seventh planets in their system are twin planets.

    Also, you failed to mention- a year earlier in the same field, a mysterious “circle” appeared that resembles the transmission device on the bottom of the ‘reply’.

    You accredit the image on the reply to being a “grey”- the “snapshot”- you mentioned doesn’t resemble what we know as “grey” aliens.

    However, a year later- the Crabwood Circle shows up with an image of what appears to be a “grey” and a CD with a message. The message was burned to disc and it was in English- giving us a warning.

    Why would they use radios to send back a transmission? Radio transmission may be a human thing- they may have another, more advanced way of communication. As humans, we are about to surpass the use of radio technology- why would aliens not already have done so?

    How do we know they just point a device towards the earth and burn an image on the planet they are communicating with. We don’t have a clue. Joe Public dismiss this as a hoax- by eliminating facts- we try to convince others. Do you think the U.S. or other world governments took it so lightly or dismissed it as a hoax? Of course not, they have fed the public tons of disinformation to get it out of the lime light and give them a chance to do their own research or even further communication with these beings.

    You are help spreading disinformation by not presenting all the facts.

    All this article does is go more in-depth into the message. It has absolutely no proof that this message is fake. I don’t really see where you could have gotten that.

    a lot of people (fools) here are saying that there is no proof that this is a hoax or fake

    the fact is, something does not NEED to be proven to be a fake in this manner, it NEEDS to be proven to be real

    any claim made without evidence can be dismissed without evidence

    it is a hoax and it is fine to assume it is a hoax until a point comes where the is solid proof that it is real, which it is not

    people would be making all sorts of ridiculous claims if others had to prove them wrong rather than them having to prove them right, it would be absurd. think about what you are saying and how stupid it sounds before you say something like “its not a proven hoax”. it doesnt need to be. I could make the outrageous claim of being abducted by aliens to start a new breed of hybrid humans/aliens and everyone would have to believe it because no one could prove it to be a hoax, ridiculous, isnt it? the burden of proof is on whoever makes the claim, not whoever dismisses it
