Just to look at
the photographs of crop circles, the complex, intricate designs, without
even knowing the history of crop circles, they speak to you at some
subconcious level. Crop circles form in crops mainly wheat and actually
seldom in corn despite what seems to be the case in the movie,
“Signs,”-unseen-despite a few claims to contrary, often formed rapidly
and they are numerous –something on the number of 10,000 has been quoted
and have been found throughout the world; although, predominately (90%)
in the United Kingdom.
circles that are considered to be genuine (there are many that are
considered to be hoaxes almost having a parallel in art, the
masterpieces and the fakes) share some features-yet they are very
distinct and many are beautiful and awe-inspiring.
Many crop circles seem
symbolic and indeed are analyzed for their geometric perfection. The
Barbury Castle crop circle formed in 1991 is analyzed as a tetrahedron
in three dimensions.
One crop circle, discovered at Longwood Warren in England seems to
represent out solar system-but earth is missing! If this is a forecast,
we are in trouble.
Another crop circle looks like a double helix. Many others form various
spirals looking like galaxies. After late 1980s more lines were added to
crop circle designs making ancient-looking elaborate pictographs. There
are many major crop circle sites listed below were you can peruse all
the beautiful patterns and interpret them for yourself.
Circles-or ellipses- are the basis
of the crop circles. Over time, the crop circles have tended to become
more complex. Some are also huge. The crop circle that occurred at
Etchilhampton, Wiltshire, in 1996 was considered to be the largest. It
was an elongated chain of circles and lines approximately 4100 feet
long. If you determine the biggest crop circle to be the one with the
most circles, then the winner is the Milk Hill, Wiltshire, crop circle
formed on August 12th 2001. It has 409 circles in 6 swirled arms. It
looks like a unique jewel.
Zooming in on the authentic crop circles reveals more wonders that have
been studied intensively. The plants are not just smashed down and
broken. There are bent at the nodes-but not crushed. The nodes are
elongated or seem to be “exploded” as if heated from the inside. Many
theories abound for to explain this phenomenon from microwave energy or
some other electro-magnetic force. The force seems to emanate from
within the plant as if the plant is heated from the inside; yet an
outside force like a vortex, or some believe, a field from a UFO might
have created the energy to bend so many plants.
Another factor is that energies seems to remain in these circles after
their creation and anything that enters the circle, from humans to
animals seem to feel some effects and sensations. Many of the sensations
are disturbing. Some have said they felt ill, or had a tingling
sensation. Some people have emotional responses like elation or people
have even gone into altered states. Animals often behave unusually. A
passive pet cat acted aggressively in a crop circle, then returned to
normal after leaving the circles. Dogs have gotten sick or started
There have been other reported strange affects in crop circles. Many
mechanical or electrical devices like cell phones, watches, etc. stop
working and a compass was said to suddenly start spinning.
