Rules and Information for the Competition 2004 / 2005

In 2004 the MARS PATENTıs founders Claudia Reiche and Helene von Oldenburg
agreed to underwrite a contest designed to prove that MARS PATENTıs
HRM_1.0n, the ³High Reality Machine² works and to explain its principle

Explain the High Reality Machine (HRM_1.0n)!

The authors pledged a Grand Prize of two polished brass plates for the first
scientist or artist whose solution is convincing to the MARS PATENTıs Grand
Jury. This Jury consists of 5 (five) randomly chosen members of the Friends
of the MARS PATENT with an international reputation and experiences as jury
or progamm committee members, chairs of institutions or else. This jury will
stay anonymous until the results of the reviewing process being declared to
guarantee their independency.

One brass plate with the engraved name of the winner will be teleported by
the HRM_1.0n to the Mars Exhibition site (MES), and fixed with 2 brass
screws on a beautiful rock on Mars, coordinates: Latitude 19° N, Longitude
281° E, facing south. The second brass plate will be given to the winner at
her or his free disposition. If there are two equally convincing
submissions, the female author will be declared winner.

Submissions should be e-mailed to: The winner will be
notified as soon as possible and presented on the MARS PATENTıs website, as
will every submission to allow a public discussion of the submissions  and
the juryıs choice.
