Crop Circles "The storms about this part of Western Surrey have been lately local and violent, and the effects produced in some instances curious. Visiting a neighbour's farm on Wednesday evening (21st), we found a field of standing wheat considerably knocked about, not as an entirety, but in patches forming, as viewed from a distance, circular spots. I could not trace locally any circumstances accounting for the peculiar forms of the patches in the field, nor indicating whether it was wind or rain, or both combined, which had caused them, beyond the general evidence everywhere of heavy rainfall. They were suggestive to me of some cyclonic wind action."
John Rand Capron (Amateur Scientist, sightings published in Nature Magazine, 1880)
Crop CircleSince the 1970s, crop circles has been the subject of speculation by various paranormal, anomalistic and ufological investigators ranging from messages from extraterrestrials to proposals that they were created by unique meteorological phenomena. The location of many crop circles near ancient sites like Stonehenge, barrows and chalk horses has led many to believe that they are formed in relation to ley lines and fend energy that can be detected through dowsing. However, many have come forward and proved it to be a hoax created by them, while others have demonstrated how easily they could be created within 15 minutes. We, the common people are left wondering if crop circles are alien messages or a prank. This article brings forth both aspects and let's you decide which way you want to believe.
Alien Hieroglyphics - the crop-circles left by the non-human intelligence is currently under the microscope of Japanese and British meteorologists. They are investigating a relationship between unwavering objects crossing the Pacific and the mysterious appearance of crop circles in the English fields. Upon examining a piece of information caught by the radar of a ship, it was found to be plasma vortex - a phenomenon similar to ball lightning and believed to be generated by 'mini-tornadoes' of electrically-charged air. Since they are luminous in the dark, many often mistake it for a UFO.
The extraordinary multiple-ringed circle formation is unlikely to be expected by the natural phenomenon of an atmospheric vortex. The complexity has increased through the 1980s, and is becoming more prominent and visible with the changing times. Even though, the sole location had been U.K., but sightings have been claimed in Australia, South America and man other continents.
Pictograms during their construction emitted a high frequency audio sound, powerful enough to damage the electronic equipment like electronic cameras in the vicinity of the circle area. The sound had an unsettling effect on people as well as animals who were within a close range to the circle. Upon being measured the frequency was found to be 5.8kHz. This is the frequency emitted from "stylus" used to manipulate the grain stalks. This thin beam is capable of softening the grain stalks and consequently generating the heat. The pressure of the sound would then bend the stalk, and upon immediate cooling the stock would lock into place.
Another interesting approach evolves from the Gaia hypothesis that postulates ancient cities have spiritual significance and people believed these circles as the expression of collective cosmic souls expressing its disgust with the present situation on the planet and indicating that all forms of consciousness should be realigned in a new direction.
