circles are organized harmonic forms that manifest around the world, the
result of an energy interacting with the physical world - in this case
plants. This energy is comprised of light, sound and magnetism. To date,
crop circles have been reported in 29 countries, and have appeared in
mediums such as wheat, barley, canola, trees, ice, rice paddies, even
Contrary to popular perception, crop circles are not a modern phenomenon.
They are mentioned in academic texts of the late 17th Century, and over
200 cases have been reported prior to 1970. Some eighty eyewitnesses –
as far flung as British Columbia and Australia – have reported crop
circles forming in under twenty seconds; these witnesses describe sightings
of incandescent or brightly-coloured balls of light which either precede
a crop circle or are actively involved in its creation; in some cases
shafts of light have descended onto a field and swirled the crop into
a geometricshape in less than fifteen seconds. Such reports are often
described by farmers.
Only around 1980 was serious attention was finally given to the phenomenon,
primarily in southern England, where 90% of designs are reported. The
designs appeared primarily as simple circles, circles with rings, and
variations on the Celtic cross. By the late 1980s they had developed straight
lines, creating pictograms not unlike the petroglyphs found at sacred
sites thoughout the world. After 1990 the designs developed exponentially
in complexity, and today it is not unusual to come across crop glyphs
mimicking computer fractals and elements expressing fourth dimensional
processes in quantum physics.
Crop circles have also increased increased in size, some occupying areas
as large as 200,000 sq ft. To date there have been over 10,000 reported
If you happen to buy the media-fed misrepresentation that all crop circles
were originated by two sexagenarians called Doug and Dave, you are not
in the minority. Once in a while, governments like to control public interest
in unexplained phenomena they cannot control by 'debunking' – a
technique developed by the US government after WWII for the sad purpose
of controlling mass opinion (as stated in the 1953 Robertson Panel, details
of which are obtained under the US Freedom of Information Act). This method
is very effective because it makes use of two extraordinarily simple tools
of mass control – ridicule and fear. But only if you are prepared
to believe everything you are told on television and newspapers, particularly
when TV programmes suppress scientific or factual data with which the
public can form an educated opinion on the subject. This absence of evidence
is then replaced by ridiculing the subject through association with other
'fringe' topics; so-called 'experts' are brought-in to explain away all
events tricks of the imagination – freak weather conditions, drunk
students, even sexually excited animals!
According to many media reports, all crop circles up to 1992 were made
by two simple, elderly men called Doug and Dave. However, it has since
been discovered that the D&D story appears to have originated at the
British Ministry of Defense. Evidence supplied by a high-ranking informant
in that government institution suggested that the British government had
every intent of discrediting the phenomenon by putting forward two pranksters
in an effort to quell growing public interest in crop circles (the full
story appears in Secrets In The Fields). But when later confronted to
provide evidence of their alleged creations, Doug and Dave changed their
story, even reversing previous claims; they could not even explain the
unusual features found in the genuine phenomenon.
When they claimed making all the formations around the English county
of Hampshire, for example, it was pointed out that the majority of known
formations had actually occured in another county – "Er, no,
we didn't do those either," they replied. In the end, not even Doug
and Dave knew which ones they had made. And although they claim to have
made hoaxes since 1978 – at the time the published date of the first
design – unpublished evidence revealed how crop circles had been
manifesting since the 1890s. The public has never heard D&D's retractions,
nor been given the opportunity to compare the mess created by D&D
with the mathematical elegance and anomalies of the real phenomenon.
In 1998, however, the surviving member of the deceptive duo did make an
incredible admission to British newspapers that he'd been "guided
by an unknown force".
Prior to 1989 the hoaxing problem was virtually unheard of. Yet since
Doug and Dave's inauguration, many copycat hoaxers have appeared on the
scene. That people with a good amount of training can go into a field
and eventually create a coherent pattern has never been the issue in crop
circels research – in 1998 a group of hoaxers called Team Satan/circlemakers
was paid to go to conveniently out-of-the-way New Zealand to make an elaborate
formation for The Discovery Channel. The deceptive tactics used to trick
a viewing public into accepting that crop circles are human made are dealt
A hoax is a forgery, and forgers require a genuine from which to copy.
So, what exactly lies behind the genuine crop circles?
In genuine formations the stems are not broken but bent (right), normally
about an inch off the ground and near the plant's first node. In special
cases, the stems are bent six inches from the top of the seed head. Such
features defeat the hoax argument, since a plank or garden roller is required
to flatten the crop to the ground, resulting in clear damage to the plants.
The plants appear to be subjected to a short and intense burst of heat
which softens the stems to drop just above the ground at 90º, where they
reharden into their new and very permanent position without damage. Plant
biologists are baffled by this feature, and it is the singlemost method
of identifying the real phenomenon. Research and laboratory tests suggest
that infrasound (sound below 20 Hz) is capable of producing such an effect:
High-pressure infrasound is capable of boiling water inside the stems
in one nanosecond, expanding the water, and leaving tiny blowholes in
the plants' nodes. The pressure applied also causes the water to steam,
and it is reported by farmers that when they stumble upon a new crop circle
they see steam rising from within the design. This process creates surface
charring along the stems.
The tremendous application of local heat is also responsible for altering
the local water table, as millions of gallons of surface and sub-surface
water is evaporated. With the heat and electro-magnetic frequencies applied,
it has been scientifically documented that soil samples taken from within
crop circles show changes to its crystalline structure and mineral composition.
Expert analysis concludes that such a process requires temperatures of
1500º C and sub-soil pressure typically found in strata thousands of years
old. Evidence even exists of four non-naturally occuring, short-life radioactive
isotopes in the soil inside genuine crop circles (these dissipate after
three or four hours, causing no adverse side effects); in fact, the soil
in and around them appears to have been baked. Hardly the kind of anomalies
created by pranksters with planks!
Crop circles also show existence of ultrasound –sound above the
human hearing range – and such frequencies are known to exist at
ancient sites such as stone circles, long barrows, tumuli, dolmens and
menhirs. And like all sacred sites, temples and places of worship –
such as Gothic cathedrals – the crop circles appear at the intersecting
points of the Earth's magnetic pathways of energy; thus the size and shape
of a crop circle is typically determined by the area of these 'node' points
at the time of their appearance.
This electric and magnetic energy can interact with brainwave patterns,
and because the human body is itself electro-magnetic, crop circles are
known to affect people's biophysical rhythms. Consequently, it is not
unusual for people to experience heightened states of awareness and healings
in crop circles – a situation also common to sacred sites and holy
spaces. People may also experience dizziness, disorientation and nausea.
All these effects can be caused by prolonged exposure to both infrasound
or microwaves, which also interact with the water in the body.
Biophysical evidence shows the plants' nodes (its nuckles) are drastically
extended (right); also observed are distortions of seed embryos, and the
creation of expulsion cavities in the plants as if they have been heated
from the inside. In genuine formations there is also a reorganization
of the plant's crystalline structure – in these microscope photos
(below right) the top image of a control sample of wheat radically differs
to the one below taken from a crop circle.
Other evidence from crop circles shows how the floors of laid plants are
swirled in mathematical proportions relative to the Golden Mean, the fundamental
vortex used by nature to create organisms such as shells, sunflowers,
galazies, even the spatial relationship of the bones in the human hand;
the floor of crop circles can have up to five layers of weaving, all in
counterflow to each other, with every seed head intact and placed beside
each other as if arranged in a museum case.
Genuine crop circles are not perfectly round but slightly elliptical (a
hoax, requiring a fixed central rope, cannot achieve this adequately).
Their edges are crisply defined from the flattened crop as if drawn with
a compass, and incised with surgical precision. Hoaxes, by comparison,
bear a stylistic resemblance to tuffs of greasy, uncombed hair –
and, of course, all their plants have been trampled, bruised and crushed.
Crop circles are sometimes accompanied by trilling sounds, since captured
on tape and analysed by NASA as being artificial in origin, and bearing
a harmonic frequency of 5.2 kHz.
Mathematically, genuine crop circles encode obscure theorems based on
Euclidian geometry. So far, the designs have yielded five new mathematical
theorems. They are also invisibly encoded with sacred geometry –
those harmonic ratios that govern the relationship between the orbits
of planets in our solar system.
Crop circles alter the local electromagnetic field; often compasses cannot
locate north, and cameras and cellular phones malfunction. Whole packs
of fresh batteries are drained in minutes, and the frequecnies involved
have been known to affect helicopter and aircraft equipment. Radio frequencies
are markedly different inside their space; local farm animals avoid the
crop circles or simply act agitated hours before one materializes; and
car batteries in entire villages fail to operate the morning after one
is found nearby. In some major events, entire towns have been left without
Since genuine crop circles materialize at crossing points along the Earth's
magnetic energy currents, they are influencing the energy patterns of
local phehistoric sites, which were built upon identical principles. They
reference local Neolithic sites in size/shape/direction, and are dowsable
upon entry, with as many as 150 concentric rings of energy radiating beyond
their physical perimeter, like ripples in a pond. In fact, a year after
they have been harvested and the field ploughed and re-sown, the energy
imprint of the formations will still be dowsed, long after their physical
traces have vanished.
This area of research has allowed for the possibility of crop circles
as a healing force, and their images are already being successfully employed
in radionics, flower essences and resonance therapy, both for people and
environments in distress. Some of these protocols have been scientifically
Crop circles generally form at night between the hours of 2-4 am, traditionally
during the shortest evenings of the English year when darkness lasts but
four hours. A lucky few have witnessed large balls of incandescent colour
project a beam of golden light into a field which next morning displays
a new crop circle. During surveylance project in 1989 a Japanese TV crew
filmed a crop circle manifesting in the early hours of the morning, showing
a swirl motion of energy lasting less than fifteen seconds. Such a rapid
rate of creation confirmed the unpublished eyewitness reports.
At Stonehenge in 1996 (bottom, left), a pilot reported seeing nothing
unusual while flying above the monument at 4:15pm, yet 15 minutes later
a second pilot reported this huge 900 ft formation resembling the Julia
Set computer fractal. Comprising 149 circles and aligned along a spiral
curve, it lay within view of the well-patrolled monument. It took a team
of 11– including myself – no less than five hours just to
survey the formation.
Still not convinced that a genuine phenomenon is at work around the world?
This web site contains a sampling of the on-going research dedicated to
enlightening the public. Look at the pictures, study the research or better
still, visit a genuine crop circle or read my comprehensive book. You'll
get the message pretty quickly.
And when you do, share this extraordinary phenomenon with your best friends.
For it is indeed the most important event taking place in our lifetime.
