A self-styled medium, Ms Smith was not content to talk to distant or dead Earth people only, but also had a hotline to Mars. Here is her portrait of a typical Martian, and their language.

The similarities would make sense because of pansporia.

Ever wnoder why someone who claims a "past life" almost always seems to be the spirit of some famous person in history and never ordinary "Joe Blow from Kokomo"?

And no one ever claims to be reincarnated from a Martian either.

A lot of people act like they belong on another planet. Maybe their previous incarnation was on Mars or Uranus?

As a long-term dnd expert here: Is that a Flumph on the upper left? (the thing that looks like a stylized raincloud). In 1st edition DND Flumphs were strange (and lawful good) critters that looked like an oddly shaped pillow thing with spikes sticking out the bottom. That sure looks like one to me.

Here's an actual image of one. They are close in appearance: http://fc02.deviantart.net/fs48/f/2009/192/1/0/Save_the_Flumph_by_butterfrog.jpg

The Flumph bears a resemblance to The Flying Spaghetti Monster in all His Noodliness. Has anyone ever seen both of them at the same place at the same time? I thought so....

Beam me up Scotty, primitive earthlings.

Nobody's going to admit coming from Uranus Phideaux. 😝
