A look inside Phobos and Deimos: the moons of Mars

Asaph Hall, a Naval Observatory astronomer, discovered the two Martian moons in 1877. He named them after the “moonsteed” sons of the Greek war god Ares (Mars): Phobos (Fear) and Deimos (Panic). Their sister Harmonia, was the goddess of music and represented harmony in all things – especially numbers. Full examination of the principal numbers associated with the distances, the dimensions, and the revolutions of the two moons would show that there is more than a natural harmony throughout.
What if the two moons of Mars were placed in orbit many moons ago? This is what the evidence suggests. To ascertain this, we have to delve into those measures which would be communicated via the mile, the kilometer, and the 24-hour clock – all of which we mistakenly take to be modern, not ancient.
Russian radio astronomer, I.S. Shklovskii, in his and Carl Sagan’s book, Intelligent Life in the Universe theorizes, “The ideas that the moons of Mars are artificial satellites may seem fantastic, at first glance. In my opinion, however, it merits serious consideration. A technical civilization substantially in advance of our own would certainly be capable of constructing and launching massive satellites.”
Commenting on the above, Carl Sagan said, “Conceivably, the capture and hallowing of a small asteroid may be technically more feasible than the construction in orbit of an artificial satellite with materials brought from the surface.” I concur, ad here is why. It has to do with the number 2277 and much beyond.
I noted that the synodical or apparent revolutions of the five planet’s in man’s immediate view were as follows: Saturn 378, Jupiter 399, Mars 780, Venus 584, and Mercury 116. The total number of days involved amounts to 2257. Add the Direction number to each: South 4, West 6, Center 2, East 3, and North 5, results in 20. The 2257 plus 20 comes to 2277, the combined minutes schedules for Phobos (459) and Deimos (1818). It also reflects the mean distance of Mars (227700000 kilometers) from the sun. Mere coincidence?
The dimensions of the Martian moons were unknown and could not be determined by telescope from Earth. Nonetheless, in 1944, at age 7, I gave my triaxial measures for Phobos and Deimos as an expression of my harmonious number 521746.251746 squared or 272219151211. The extrapolated numbers were and are 27 long, 22 wide and 19 deep kilometers for Phobos and 15 long, 12 wide, and 11 deep kilometers for Deimos. These measures had to await confirmation by NASA spacecraft. According to the Viking orbiters, I got six measures out of six right.
I have been asked repeatedly how I came to my harmonious number and what evidence I used to settle upon the six figures. To answer the question, I must ask patience of the reader. It requires going into the specific math I used to solve the problem.
I knew that there were 52 weeks in a menstrual year (364 nights) and that my newly deciphered Harmony of Spheres Diagram had two octaves or 25 notes, the mirror number of 52. Hence, my harmonious numbers had to involve 52 —-.25—-. The missing number had to be built upon 2277 as 22+77 and 22×77:
Note 47 (atomic number of silver, sacred to the moon). My harmonious number had to be 521746.251746 squared or 272219151211. Although Encyclopedia Britannica published my mile-kilometer measures for the distances from the satellites to the center of Mars, it chose not to publish my dimensions for the two moons, fearing the measures were too large.
Incidentally, there is a hidden 918 setting in the difference between the dimensions: 27 22 19 minus 15 12 11 equals 12 10 08. 12x10x08 = 960. 960-12-10-08-1-2-1-0-0-8 = 918. We shall see later that 918 is crucial to the orbits of Phobos and Deimos.
Let us move on now and examine the exact method I used to determine the distances between the moons and Mar’s center. It is important to note from the outset that the method involves almost exclusively in viewpoint of Earth, not Mars. Again, I must ask the patience of the reader. The material is easy to understand but a bit tedious in the telling. We will proceed slowly but surely toward the conclusion as to why I chose the particular measures I did for the dimensions of the two moons.
From the viewpoint of Mars, Phobos rises in the West and sets in the East with an apparent revolution of 11 hours. The number 11 was very important to ancient cultures. It constituted the number of semitones before the 12th tone which was the octave. It still does. If the hand of Man were in it, a number of choice is 11. It had unique symmetry, reading identically west to east or east to west: 11, 121, 1331, 14641.
Note: 47 (atomic number of silver sacred to the moon) and 74 (silver mirrored) equal 121.121 equals 14641.
The 14641 minus 26 (atomic number of iron, sacred to Mars) comes to 14615, the number of miles Deimos is from the center of Mars. 14615 divided by 2.5 (25 notes/10 fingers is 5846. The 5846 minus 26 comes to 5820. the number of miles Phobos is from Mar’s center.
Expressed in kilometers 23520 is the distance of Deimos from the center of Mars. The 23520 plus 55 (atomic weight of iron) comes to 23575. Likewise 9366 is the distance of Phobos from Mar’s center. The 9366 plus 55 comes to 9421.
Now I can answer the question as to the dimensions of Phobos and Deimos. I simply added all the figures: 14615, 5820, 23575, and 9421. They came to 53431. Starting with 11. I employed it as follows: 11 up by 1 to 12, up by 3 to 15, up by 4 to 19, up by 3 to 22, up by 5 to 27. This, together with my harmonious number given above, led me to settle upon those specific dimensions of 27 22 19 for Phobos and 15 12 11 for Deimos.

Bart Jordan’s article, “The Moons of Mars,” published by QUEST For Knowledge (a British science publication) in 1997, was excerpted from his paper of 1944 and provided mathematical evidence that the moons of Mars were placed into orbit by a pre-ice age advanced civilization. Jordan also predicted the fifth moon of Uranus, which was known to the Homeric Greeks as Harmonia, and gave these calculations to Dr. Gerard Kuiper, who then identified the moon in 1948 (which he called Miranda after a heroine of Shakespeare). This moon renamed Miranda has a very interesting mark on its surface, which was witnessed by NASA’s Voyager 2 space mission, guided by Jordan. Check out this photo from NASA of a “chevron”. It looks like a big number 7, with new and old terrain.
