I'm not even close to finishing Minkata yet, or getting much past the starting line, but I've noticed one cool thing. The hole in the ground near the bone structure reminds me very strongly of underground rooms I've seen at pueblo sites in New Mexico. They're called kivas. So that's what I've been calling the feature in Minkata. "Hole" and "cave" don't really convey the magic. 8)

(I'm staying away from spoilers at the moment, so I just came to throw this comment in and leave. Looks like there's a lot to read about Minkata! That's a very good sign. :) )

I actually have it on very good authority that Minkata is visible from western Nebraska... 8)

I am from eastern Nebraska, and altho I have spent many days out in western Nebraska with my volunteer work, I have never seen anything like Minkata.

Maybe it is in Wyoming?

I live close to New Mexico, and the first thought that came to mind was White Sands, NM. http://www.sacredsites.com/americas/united_states/white_sands.html

Nope, Mintaka is on Mars. :lol:

I will show you the special Mars Face in three steps. The last one will be very interresting.

#1 is from far above the Mars Face
[spoiler]Image[/spoiler]

#2 is a modern high resolution of the same spot. Take note here of the small green arrow on the image. It is pointing to a very special spot.
[spoiler]Image[/spoiler]

#3 is a close up for that special spot.
[spoiler]Check very closely and you might see the cavewalls at the back, lined up with some very regular chambers apertures
Image[/spoiler]
For the full high resolution image (3721 X 2480) use my link and scroll image until
you get the "make larger" icon, bottom right

It's yet another proof for Douglas Adams' theory that mice are ruling earth. :)

Thanks, Kerryth, for the kiva information and link... the caves on Minkata seem very similar indeed! The also seem to have had special significance for someone.... 8)
