Since the discovery of the Palenque sarcophagus lid, there has been much speculation about the meaning of the various figures and shapes depicted on its carved surface. The author of this document focuses primarily on the small three-circled elements (“triplets”) scattered around the upper portion of the lid, and argues that those supposedly mere ornamental items are actually components of a sophisticated encoding procedure. This coding system consists of a geometrical and an interpretational part, where the former leads the decoder from an initial item arrangement to a final figure through a series of indicated transformations in a logically compelling way, while the latter apparently suggests to interpret this resulting shape and its enclosing context as a message about an interstellar space travel to the Earth that started from a binary solar system three times as far away from the Sun as the nearest star (i.e. the Proxima Centauri).

Please be aware that the author of these pages is not a professional (in fact not even a hobbyist) on the subjects of Maya culture or SETI. His approach to the problem is much more that of a computer programmer with a passion for comprehending and “breaking” various types of coding methods.
Also please keep in mind that this document is not a scientific publication, it has not been, for instance, peer-reviewed by professional scientists or published in any scientific journal.
Nonetheless, and even if (technically speaking) this document might be characterized as a pseudoscientific one, the author did put all his efforts into making the content and its presentation as objective and scientific as possible.
The following tools provided indispensable help in creating these pages: NetBeans (HTML / Java), GIMP (image manipulation), Gifsicle (optimizing animated GIFs), FFmpeg (video converting) and Notepad++ (HTML editing and batch multiline search/replace).
