Crop Circle High Strangeness




This is a longish piece that is up on Earthfiles written by Linda Moulton Howe on the crop circle phenomena and it provides a good recent survey of thinking on the subject.  Most of the observations made continue to support my conjecture that the work is created by microwave lasing by the military as part of a weapons development program.

I have stripped out the illustrations as there is little new there that I have not already seen. 

However, the report describing the sharp flash of light suggests capabilities superior to what we are likely to have now but still likely to obtain.

I suspect that we need to finally take a long look at the implied system of symbols as a serious effort to communicate with us.

October 9, 2010  Albuquerque, New Mexico - On September 23, 2010, I flew from Albuquerque to Sao Paulo, Brazil, to join four other speakers to present information about global crop formations before two audiences in Sao Paulo on September 25th and in Rio de Janeiro on September 26th. The conference title was “Science Discusses the Crop Circle Phenomenon” organized by MIST Productions and the good efforts of Brazilian producers Marta Jaramillo and Anna Sharp.

Besides myself speaking about the biophysical and biochemical investigations I have researched with Michigan biophysicist W. C. Levengood in crop formation plants and soil, Gary Alexander King from Melksham, Wiltshire, England, talked about his videotaping inside U. K. crop formations to document the extraordinary crop lays in 2010 and other previous years. Jonathan Paul de Vierville, Ph.D., Spa Cultures, Dreams and Healing Waters, San Antonio, Texas, spoke about history and symbolism in crop formations. Peter Russell, M.A., D.C.S., F.S.P. in Physics and fellow of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, along with his colleague Elisabet Sahtouris, Ph.D., an evolutionary biologist, spoke about the relationship of evolutionary consciousness on Earth and in the cosmos.

Gary King has been working with long-time crop formation investigator Michael Glickman, author of The Bones of God © 2009 [ See More Information below.] The two have collaborated on a new website,CropCircleReporter (CCR) in which Gary's excellent videotapes inside crop formations are excerpted for playback in the Latest News Blog.

Gary King has lived in Melksham, Wiltshire, England since 2007, when his dramatic experiences concerning the emergence of the huge East Field 070707 formation provoked Gary to move from Cardiff, England, where he had worked as a paralegal and earned a degree in Communications and Language, to Wiltshire to be closer to the April to August crop formation season. One of Gary's topics in the Brazil conferences was his discussions with Wiltshire farmers who acknowledge the highly strange impacts on crops and soil they have seen firsthand and close-up in their own fields.

Interview:

Gary King, Crop Circle Researcher and Videographer, Crop Circle Reporter.com, Melksham, Wiltshire, England  “In my own personal experience, I’ve spoken with half a dozen farmers to ask what their own personal feelings are regarding the crop formations. For example, one farmer named Mr. White over at Pewsey. He has told the Norwegian documentary filmmaker, Terry Toftnes, and others that he thinks the crop formations he has seen is way beyond our technology and he just does not see how anybody could come into the fields in the hours of darkness and put these formations down.

Mr. White said that the size, scale, beauty and precision of the formations impress him.  And this is something that several other farmers echo – they know their land very well. Some of them have dogs, so they would know if someone comes on their land. They get up very early and drive around their land. They know that if someone came on their land at night, especially near their home where the dogs are, they would know about it.

IS THERE A FARMER YOU HAVE PERSONALLY TALKED TO WHO POINTED OUT TO YOU SOME EVIDENCE HE CONSIDERED SO UNUSUAL IN HIS CROP THAT IT COULD NOT HAVE BEEN DONE BY BOARDS OR STRING?

Yes, that was this year of 2010. It was Philip Simmonds, the farm manager who had the first formation of this year at Old Sarum near Salisbury in Wiltshire south of Marlborough and Pewsey, reported on May 5, 2010.  I drove south from the Vale of Pewsey towards Salisbury to investigate that formation as soon as we heard about it.


Old Sarum (lowest red circle) and Salisbury are about 30 miles south of Pewsey
and Marlborough in Wiltshire County, where so many crop formations
have been reported since the early 1990s.

Old Sarum is the site of the earliest settlement of Salisbury, England. The site contains evidence of human habitation as early as 3000 B.C. Old Sarum is mentioned in some of the earliest records in England. It sits on a hill about two miles north of modern Salisbury.


Old Sarum was originally a hill fort strategically placed on the conjunction of two trade routes and the River Avon, Hampshire. The hill fort is broadly oval in shape - 400 meters (1,300 feet) in length and 360 meters (1,200 feet) in width. Old Sarum consists of a bank and ditch with an entrance on the eastern side. Sir R. C. Hoare said about the ancient site, “Many of the barrows in the vicinity of Old Sarum have been opened, and in them several antiquarian relics (of Celtic habitation) have been discovered.” Aerial by English Heritage.

Cropcircleconnector:   “Herewith the first crop circle of 2010 reported on May 5. It is in oil seed rape and measures approximately 180 feete in diameter.  It is a circle containing six arcs intercepted by a small circle surrounded by a larger circle. A lozenge shape lies alongside the sixth arc with seven circles lying in an arc below.  It lies below the ancient Hill Fort Old Sarum in Hampshire.  Sadly due to the fact that it lies in Boscombe Military Air space it is also directly below the helicopter low flight approach zone.

“... it would appear the positioning of the crop circle in relation to Old Sarum, actually lies on the direct path of a very well known Ley Line which has an alignment with Stonehenge, and cuts the nearside edge of the inner banks of the fortified encampment of Old Sarum. This Ley Line then straight through Salisbury Cathedral itself, and the hill forts of Clearbury Rings and then Frankenbury Camp in Hampshire.


“This clearly indicates that the positioning of Crop Circles could indeed be connected with Ley Lines, which are aligned to well known Ancient Sites. Are we being shown a doorway to ancient knowledge? Will we find the key in 2010?”

Gary King:  “When I got there, I spent about five minutes walking around. Then Mr. Simmonds, the farm manager, came out very angry at seeing people in his field and thinking the Old Sarum formation was vandalism. He walked into the formation where I and several others were standing. Another crop formation investigator, Janet Ossebard, was with me and we pulled out canola (oilseed rape) that was bent over on the ground at a 90-degree angle. As we pulled out of the ground some of those crisp, 90-degree bent - but uncreased and unbroken - canola stems to show the farmer and to show him that the petals on the canola were completely intact, that angry farmer started to completely soften.

We told him we were trying to encourage people to have respect for the fields and asked if he would not cut the formation out. Later that day, he decided to let people visit the formation. Later, I was very impressed to learn that Mr. Simmonds wrote a very beautiful and long article in Farmer’s Weekly saying that in his opinion  the Old Sarum  first formation of 2010 in oilseed rape (canola) could not have been made by people. He was happy he had let people enter his field because he met visitors from all around the world. He made the comment that he did not think there was anything he knew that could bend the stalks of canola over at 90 degrees like that throughout the formation without breaking the crisp, watery stalks.



This 2-page article in Farmers Weekly on June 1, 2010, was written by Philip Simmonds, Manager of the Little Durnsford Farms near Old Sarum, Wiltshire, England, where the first 2010 crop formation was reported in oilseed rape.

 WHAT ELSE HAVE FARMERS TOLD YOU THEY THINK IS VERY UNUSUAL IN CROP FORMATIONS?

There are two that spring to mind. One is the Alton Barnes farmer, Tim Carson. In a TV documentary, he described going into a formation in the East Field on his land with a BBC crew and walked up the tramlines. All their equipment was working fine, but as soon as they walked into the East Field crop formation, all their equipment went off and would not work. For some time, the crew walked in and out of the formation and watched the film equipment go on and off as they went in and out of the formation.

Equipment and camera failures are something a lot of us researchers have heard. But when you hear a farmer such as Tim Carson in Wiltshire talk about a BBC crew all scratching their heads over the bizarre equipment problems, I think that is an important piece of repeating evidence in the crop formation mystery for years now.

This has been a recurring observation and suggests that the soil is strongly activated magnetically to produce interference.  This should be easily testable and the decay rate should also be measurable.

“Ghost” Patterns of Previous Crop Formations Emerge Again in Following New Crop Season


Example of ghostly patterns from previous season showing through in new crop season. “080808” pattern was reported on August 8, 2008, below Milk Hill, near Alton Barnes, Wiltshire, England, and is faintly visible in the same field where a 7-sided pattern was reported on June 2, 2009. See more information and images about 080808 pattern in Cropcircleconnector Archive. See more information and images about the  060209 pattern in Cropcircleconnector Archive.

I think another impressive part of the crop formation phenomenon are the “ghosts” we see the year after. I have flown over the land at the beginning of the season and clearly seen ghosts of previous season formations coming up as a persistent pattern in new growing crop. So, I talked about this with Tim Carson. I asked him, ‘What causes this?’ He told me, ‘Nine times out of ten, we rotate the crop. If there had been a crop formation in wheat and lots of people have visited it, the people knock the seeds off the seed heads, which go into the ground and sprout again.  When the field is harvested in August, we often see a green patch of circles that are coming up where the formation had been.

I would be more impressed if there were no such things because that would support the two clowns theory the press bought like suckers.  The disturbance observed is cooking off the soil and that is going to impact next years crop  even if we have merely sterilized the soil.

When winter comes, that new green dies off. What remains under the soil is a root bed of those wheat seeds that germinated before harvest. Now, because of modern farming techniques, the farmers don’t plow the field anymore. The farmers just go along with a machine and drill the new seeds in the ground and quite often, they will put canola into the field that previously had wheat in it.

When that starts to grow, the canola won’t come through the root bed. Hence, we get a ghost of the previous season’s wheat formation. So, Tim Carson thinks that is the explanation for most of the “ghost” patterns that persist.

However, he and other farmers I’ve spoken to say the soil is never the same again. It never grows even years later the same where there is always a patch that remains different and never grows right again where the soil was affected in some way.

SO IN THOSE CASES, THE SOIL CHANGES MIGHT EXPLAIN THE PERSISTENCE OF GHOST PATTERNS FROM A PREVIOUS FORMATION.

Right. And we should be investigating crop formations with a team of scientists who can document all the plant and soil changes. [ See Part 3.]

 Physical Impact of Formations on Humans

For about twelve years, I’ve known a woman named Ashara Wood, who lives in Westbury, Wiltshire, England. She is a dear friend of mine. A few years ago, she was diagnosed with throat cancer. So she went through the whole chemotherapy and radiation therapy to get the tumor out of her throat. As a consequence, she lost an awful lot of weight the way you do with such medications. Where the tumor was in her throat, the radiation scarred a lot of the lining inside her throat. She found eating very difficult. But she recovered and has been in full remission from the throat cancer for a couple of years. But she is still very thin and has trouble eating. When she takes a mouth full of food, she has to chew it completely thoroughly and drink water with it. Eating is a struggle for her.

Ashara had never been in a crop formation before, so I took her to one of the first 2009 crop formations at Avebury – the starburst in canola.


“Sunburst” in yellow, flowering, oilseed rape was reported April 23, 2009, at Rutlands Farm near the ancient double stone circles of Avebury.  Its longest length was 298 feet with 66-foot-diameter central circle. Aerial image © 2009 by Nick Nicholson. Also see: Cropcircleconnector.com.

And we went around the pattern and took some photographs. And when we came out, we got into the car and she said, ‘I’m hungry. I want to eat something.’

For so long without eating much, she just lost her appetite and is not interested in food any more. So, we went and had some food and she seemed to be not struggling so much and was OK – not fully recovered, but not needing as much water and chewing as she normally does. And that continued for two weeks after being in the 2009 Avebury canola starburst formation. For two weeks, she said she could eat and eat and eat. That hadn’t happened before going into the crop formation and because the effect was so immediate after she left the crop circle, as far as she was concerned, some energy or something inside that formation had caused her to have a small remission for a couple of weeks.

WHAT DID SHE DO AFTER THAT? DID SHE TRY TO KEEP GOING INTO CROP FORMATIONS?

She did. For the next two weeks, Ashara went into as many formations as she could such as the one at Roundway 2009. But she had work commitments at the Glastonbury festival and went off there. She didn’t report any more remissions or strange effects, but she was very grateful for the 2-week remission after going in the Avebury starburst.

WHAT IS THE MOST DRAMATIC EXPERIENCE YOU HAVE HAD IN CROP FORMATIONS SINCE YOU BEGAN INVESTIGATING IN 1997?

For me it has to be the 07-07-07 formation – July 7, 2007 – in the East Field.”

 Updated Part 1:  1,033-Foot-Long East Field Wheat Formation “Happened Within 90 Minutes.” Investigators presented video and eyewitness evidence at July 19, 2007, press conference in Coronation Hall, Alton Barnes, Wiltshire, U.K.

 “We were the first to reach the formation at 4 AM (July 7, 2007) after seeing a very bright flash of light. The wheat circles were raised 6 inches above the ground so when we stepped in, the plants crunched under our feet like we were stepping on delicate crystals.”  - Gary King, Cardiff, U. K. Paralegal

 July 19, 2007 / Updated  July 27, 2007  Alton Barnes, Wiltshire  -  Gary King is 41-years-old and currently a Linguistics student at Cardiff University in Wales, U. K. Between 1985 and 1987, he had worked as a paralegal in London and then moved on to form his own private investigator company to trace missing persons and investigate cases of matrimonial discontent. He was doing private-I work until July 1997, when he walked into his first English crop formation "and life has changed considerably ever since," Gary told me in a July 11, 2007, phone interview. He explored Navaho reservations in Arizona, studied the dance traditions of West Africa, increased his knowledge of Tai Chi and other martial arts. He began to realize that he was becoming increasingly sensitive to the seen and unseen.

"On a couple of occasions, I’ve had intuitions about crop circles like you would have before a phone is going to ring. I’ve had intuitions where I’ve gotten up in the morning and driven down to Wiltshire from my home in Wales and been lucky enough to walk into a fresh formation."

On Friday, July 6, 2007, he woke up in his Wales home around 3:30 AM and could not go back to sleep. So, he got up, had some coffee and toast, watched the sunrise and decided he had to go to Wiltshire to see if any new crop formations had emerged. Traveling with him was his girlfriend, Paula Presdee-Jones.

Interview:

Gary King, Former London Paralegal and Private Investigator; Currently Linguistics Major at Cardiff University, Cardiff, Wales, U. K.:  "I’ve always looked at the East Field and went there first, but there was nothing.

Then I went to the Silent Circle Café around mid-day and somebody mentioned there might be a formation in the East Field, which we went back to investigate. It was just wind damage at one end of the field because the night before it had been particularly windy. When I got there, I met up with some Dutch researchers from Holland that Janet Ossebaard had brought over and also some American people that Denni Clark had as a tour group. We were looking at the wheat and saying it was just wind damage. I decided to spend the night on top of Knap Hill, which is directly in front the East Field.


The center yellow circle highlights the location of the huge East Field near Alton Priors, Wiltshire, beneath Knap Hill, highlighted at upper right, not far from Woodborough Hill, highlighted at lower center.

So, that evening I borrowed a sleeping bag off Charles Mallett at the Silent Circle Café to go up and do my vigil with Paula. When we got up there, we met up with a man called Winston (‘Win’) Keech, who is a UFO investigator. He had three cameras set up on the hill and two cameras set up on his car (jeep), which was parked a little way down on the hill. So, he had five cameras in all.

On top of the hill, he had three cameras set up on tripods. One was a Sony digital still camera. Another was a Sony VX2100, which he told me is much more sensitive to light than the human eye. He also had an image-enhancing camera, which was hooked up to a JVC D-700 recorder, so that every time he scanned the field with the image enhancer, it would record what was scanned.


Sony DCR-VX2100 light sensitive professional digital camera. 

THE TWO CAMERAS IN WIN'S JEEP WERE MOUNTED HOW?

They were mounted on the roof. They were infrared and visible light capacity. One was aimed at East Field and one was aimed at Milk Hill. And they were hooked up to VHS/VCR video recorders with 4-hour tapes in them.

WHY WAS MR. KEECH ARMED WITH SO MANY CAMERAS ON THE NIGHT OF JULY 6 TO JULY 7, 2007?

I met up with him for the first time at the Silent Circle Café during that day. I put Janet Ossebaard’sContact video on the TV set and he saw somebody in the video give a personal testimony about a ball of light they had seen forming a crop circle some years ago and Winston Keech got quite excited. So, I asked him what happened and he said, ‘Oh, I saw that ball of light make that formation some years ago, but I didn’t know anyone else had seen it!’

Win told me he was going back to Yorkshire on Monday (July 9) where he lived and he was going to do one more night watch on Friday to Saturday night (July 6 to 7, 2007). I don’t remember him telling me he was going to be Knap Hill – but he just said he was going to do another night. And off he went.
So, on my own when I ended up going to the top of Knap Hill with Paula, I immediately recognized Win as he came over to us. We sat down where he had all his cameras set up. He picked up his image-enhancing camera and scanned around the East Field which we could see very clearly through his equipment. We could see the tramlines. He scanned across (the wheat) and we could see there was a field of rapeseed next to (the wheat) and we could see the road and everything very clearly. That was recorded and indexed at 1:35 AM, Saturday, July 7, 2007.

THERE WAS NOTHING IN THE EAST FIELD AT THAT POINT?
Absolutely nothing, no.

WHAT HAPPENED?

We all sat there and talked about the universe and all the possibilities of how wonderful this world could be. Then, just around 3 AM, (video analysis shows 3:08 AM - first report was 3:13 AM for flash and then refined in analysis to 3:08 AM), we saw a great big flash of light, which I can describe was almost like lightning, but covered the whole land and was like a big camera flash going off everywhere.

YOU DID SEE THAT FLASH WITH YOUR HUMAN EYES?

With our eyes, we registered a great big flash, all three of us.

SUCH A BRIGHT FLASH SHOULD HAVE BLASTED OUT THE INFRARED CAMERA. WHAT DID THE INFRARED CAMERA SHOW?

It was the infrared camera that just shows the EMP pulse."

 Norwegian Video Producer Joins Winston Keech to Analyze Infrared Camera Video

Terje Toftenes, Video Producer and Managing Director of Strat and Toftenes in Sandvika, Norway, got a call on Tuesday, July 10, from a colleague in Wiltshire telling Terje that not only had one of the biggest crop formations in Wiltshire history appeared early in the morning on Saturday, July 7, 2007, in the East Field, but there had been cameras running when a very bright flash of light was seen from Knap Hill by three eyewitnesses. Terje studied electronic engineering in a Norwegian university and later worked as a TV producer for the Norwegian Broadcasting Corp. until 1978, then managed an Audio-Visual Department for a Norwegian public relations company until 1986. That year, he founded his own video company to produce industrial films. Today, Strat and Toftenes produces for major clients in the offshore oil, gas and shipping industries.

But like Gary King, after Terje stepped into his first English crop formation in 2003, he was haunted by their beauty and the mystery of what they could mean. He ended up producing a documentary for Norwegian television that was translated into an English version in 2006 as Crossovers From Another Dimension. (See More Information below.) He's now working on a follow up documentary.

So when Terje received the phone call about a massive pattern of circles estimated to cover 96,600 square feet, or 2.25 acres, with more than 95 circles (final count was 150) in a very strange design spread across 1,033 feet and 490 feet wide - plus three eyewitnesses who saw a bright flash of light while light-sensitive and infrared cameras were set up - he got on the first plane out of Norway and headed for the East Field. Terje went over in detail with Winston Keech what the camera equipment had recorded. For everyone, it was a sad irony that the exciting human conversation distracted attention from periodically videotaping the East Field and changing tapes. Terje and Winston discovered only two frames in the infrared camera had recorded an electromagnetic pulse of some kind that left a 4 milliseconds trace of what Terje thinks are the trees atop Woodborough Hill in the distance, but nothing else from the East Field itself.

However, if you start with:

- the 1:35 AM Sony light-sensitive videotape that Win Keech shot while panning the East Field that was so dark in the frames above;

- add the three eyewitness naked eye sighting of the bright, flash of light that came at 3:08 AM, according to the infrared camera;

- view the infrared video frames leading up to the last two seconds before the videotape ran out of that camera right after the 3:08 AM electromagnetic disturbance (first report was 3:13 AM for flash and then refined in analysis to 3:08 AM);

- consider that the trees atop Woodborough Hill are in 4 milliseconds of a flash in an otherwise dark frame;

- include the approximate 3:20 AM viewing of all three eyewitnesses through the Sony light-sensitive camera in which all three could see a shadow in the East Field they assumed must be a new formation;

- then look at the approximate 3:20 AM Sony still digital frame camera at the top of this report that clearly shows the astounding wheat formation.
 Analysis by Terje Toftenes

Terje Toftenes, Video Producer and Managing Director, Strat and Toftenes, Sandvika, Norway:  "At 1:35 AM, (July 7, 2007) it was so dark, so totally black in the field. The only thing you can see from the video recording was the horizon and some lights from houses in the distance in the horizon. But in the field, it was totally black and I’ve tried to enhance, or amplify, the video frames. But all I get is recording noise from the recording device.

YOUR IMPLICATION IS THAT IF THERE HAD BEEN ANYBODY HIDING IN THE FIELD OR TRYING TO WALK THE TRAMLINES OR EVEN HAD A HIDDEN FLASHLIGHT, THE INFRARED AND STARSCOPE CAMERAS WOULD HAVE SHOWED THAT VERY CLEARLY?

Oh, yes. Any lights would be visible on those recordings and we have examined them back and forth during the 1:35 AM time period and there is absolutely no sign of any lights or people or activity in the black parts of the East Field where the formation appeared later.

TERJE, WHAT IS YOUR UNDERSTANDING ABOUT WHY WINSTON KEECH HAD 5 CAMERAS ON KNAP HILL IN THE COLD AND RAIN FROM LATE FRIDAY, JULY 6, TO SATURDAY, JULY 7, 2007?

Fifteen years ago in 1991, Win Keech had a close encounter with a ball of light that created a crop circle right in front of his eyes. And it happened in just 3 seconds. Win was standing in one of the corners of the East Field. A ball of light the size of a human fist appeared right in front of him and suddenly expanded to be like a big, floating pancake.

Then it was about 20 feet in diameter. Then the wheat beneath this kind of golden, floating pancake, started to wave around and lay down in a perfect circle. Then this pancake goes back to the size of a fist and slowly drifts away into some bushes and disappears. It took three seconds. He had one single-reflex camera and a very old video camera. But he did not have the time to push the recording button.

 [ See:060999 Earthfiles for another "floating pancake" that produced crop circle in Hoeven, Holland.]

Win Keech felt that this light ball, or whatever it was, was kind of teasing him and telling him, ‘I’ll show you what I can do. But you cannot catch me on film. But I’m here.’ That’s the feeling Win had.

And every single summer since then, he has been down here in Wiltshire for a couple of weeks setting up his equipment focused on the fields at night, trying to catch this phenomenon on video. And every year, he has gotten better and better equipment, and finally after 16 years, he is able to have a new contact with it in the East Field.

YET, FOR WHATEVER REASONS, HE WAS NOT OPERATING THE CAMERA EQUIPMENT WHEN THE FLASH OF LIGHT OCCURRED.

Right. Well, he also explained he had a feeling that if he had been very actively filming the field all the time, it probably would not have occurred. Again, he felt that the phenomenon was kind of teasing with him because the minute that the big light flashed, the three people - including Win - were in the middle of a discussion and had their focus somewhere else other than on what was happening in the field. He said, ‘If I had been there totally alone focusing on the field the whole time as I have done for the last 16 summers since the incident in 1991, this time probably would not have happened. ‘I have a feeling,’ he says, ‘that this phenomenon is dancing with me. It invites me to dance. It’s invisible and it shows up when I least expect it. It will not show itself when I ask for it. It just shows when I’m not aware.

So, again, he felt this was an answer to his questions and encouragement to continue on his path, developing himself as a human being.

DO YOU HAVE AN EXACT TIME FOR THE FLASH OF LIGHT?

Yes, the exact time for the flash seems to be 8 minutes past 3 AM (3:08 AM Wiltshire, England local time).

TO SUMMARIZE,  AT 1:35 AM WAS THE LAST TIME THAT THE SONY LIGHT-SENSITIVE AND INFRARED CAMERAS SHOWED DEFINITIVELY THAT THERE WAS NOTHING IN THE EAST FIELD?

1:35 AM it is – that’s the last pan over the East Field where you see nothing in the field.

THEN, AT 3:08 AM IS WHAT THE INFRARED CAMERA SHOWS WAS THE MOMENT OF THE LIGHT PULSE?

Yes.     [Post-interview and post-press conference editorial note by Terje:  "There actually is an uncertainty whether the Light Flash happened at 3:08 or 3:13. This because of the fact that the VHS timecode was slightly unprecise. But this makes no practical difference, so no use to mention I believe. Only thing is that in my video-interview with Win, he mentions 3:13, but later he corrected this to 3:08 when analyzing the tapes. The English papers therefore refer to 3:13 as presented in the videotaped interview. But again, probably a minor difference irrelevant to the total picture." ]

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE CAMERAS IMMEDIATELY AFTER THAT LIGHT PULSE?

At that particular moment, only two cameras were running. And in one of those cameras, the tape had run out. On the other camera, the tape ran out only two seconds after the light pulse.

THAT WAS THE INFRARED CAMERA.

Yes. The cameras ran out of tape because the three people were in the middle of such an interesting discussion about metaphysics that Win Keech forgot to change the tapes. So when the light struck, he said, ‘Oh, gosh, that reminds me. I have to change the tapes.’ So, he ran down to the jeep and changed the tapes and afterwards, we see that one of those removed was recording the light pulse two seconds before that tape ran out. So, that was really lucky!

Flash of Light: 4 Milliseconds Image On Infrared Videotape

I have analyzed all this frame-by-frame. On the first frame where the flash happens, there is an electronic kind of shock. You have to remember that the camera was connected to a video recorder by a cord because this particular camera was on the rooftop of the jeep. The recorder was inside the jeep. So, the cord picked up the light pulse because the cord was like an antenna to electrical impulses. So, I think what I can see is that the first kind of shock on the first video frame is from the electromagnetic shock from the flash of light.

On the next second frame, you see the actual flash of light (4 milliseconds) on the tiny part of the frame. Then, for the next 6 or 7 frames, the camera obviously had sync trouble because it’s trying to regain its synchronization. The EMP pulse from the light flash was so hard that it shocked the electronics.

Infrared camera Frame 2 at 3:08 AM after light flash. Terje Toftenes concluded that the upper 4 milliseconds of frame shows trees atop Woodborough Hill in upper center. 

SO, WE HAVE FOR SURE AT 3:08 AM THE BIG FLASH OF LIGHT THAT EFFECTS THE CAMERAS AND THEIR SYNC AND YOU HAVE 4 MILLISECONDS ON ONE FRAME OF WHAT YOU THINK ARE THE TREES ATOP WOODBOROUGH HILL?
Yes. That’s correct.

NOW, WE HAVE 1:35 AM AND NOTHING IN THE EAST FIELD.  AT 3:08 AM THERE IS THE BIG FLASH OF LIGHT AND THE ELECTROMAGNETIC DISRUPTION. WHAT IS THE NEXT TIME YOU HAVE ON VIDEO THAT SHOWS SHADOWS THAT MIGHT RELATE TO THE FORMATION BEING IN THE EAST FIELD, EVEN IN THE DARK?

OK, what happens after the flash is that Win runs down to the car and changes the tapes. That takes approximately five minutes. He gets back to the top of Knap Hill and Gary King suggests that flash of light could have meant something. ‘Maybe that’s it!’ they kind of joked. So, why not try to pan the field again even though it was totally black?

Win took the most light-sensitive camera he had (Sony VX2100) which was on a tripod at the top of Knap Hill and this again was connected to a camcorder, so it was recorded on mini-DVD tape. He pans over the field and then they saw in the viewfinder a shadow in the field which was in the place where the crop formation was later seen as a full formation. But in that pan after the flash of light, there was only a shadow.

 3:20 AM - First Shadow of Crop Formation Seen and Photographed

"And this was approximately 12 to 13 minutes after the light pulse. We are now talking about 3:20 AM. That’s when they saw the first shadow and then some light came as clouds began to drift away from the moon.

After that, they could also see with their naked eyes that there was a shadow there and took a picture with the digital still camera. Then they could see that the formation was there. From that point, the (light-sensitive) Sony video camera was also able to pick it out as well. So, from 3:20 AM (July 7, 2007), you’ve got the crop formation there. And about a half hour later (about 3:45 AM), they could see with their eyes.

DID THEY VIDEOTAPE AT THAT MOMENT IN INFRARED OR STARSCOPE?

They videotaped with the normal, light-sensitive Sony camera and also the infrared camera was running. So, we have that on three different sources. Also from the Sony digital still camera. So, actually four of the cameras were working at that time.

THE EYEWITNESSES ARE STILL ON TOP OF KNAP HILL. NOW THEY ARE SEEING AND VIDEOTAPING AND RECORDING WITH VIDEO AND CAMERA EQUIPMENT IN INFRARED, STARSCOPE AND ON A STILL FRAME THAT THERE IS SOMETHING IN THE FIELD. WHAT DO THEY DO NEXT?

First of all, if you listen to the audio from the recordings, you can hear they are cheering and yelling because of their excitement, of course. They told me they thought it was sort of an answer to the discussion they had been having about the existence of other realities and the nature of consciousness. This intelligence, or whatever is making the crop formations, just wanted to show them, ‘Aha! You might be on the right track.’ That was their feeling.

After they had done more recordings, then they were also able to see it with their own eyes. At that time – and now we have come to about 4 AM – then Gary and his girlfriend decide to go down and have a look at the crop formation. So, they get in their car and drive around the East Field to the small parking place (silage pit) and they walk into the formation as Win is still videotaping them from the top of Knap Hill. We have the video of them coming into the formation and dancing! They were extremely excited to get into the crop formation when they knew they were the first people on this planet entering that particular formation.

 4 AM - Gary King and Paula Presdee-Jones Take First Steps into East Field Circles


First 4 AM digital phone images inside East Field formation of 150 circles ranging from 160 feet to 2 feet in diameter. Images © 2007 by Gary King. 


Gary King:   “Yeah, I was fortunate to be the first one who walked into it with my girlfriend from Cardiff, Paula, while Win Keech continued to videotape us. We drove down the road just after 4 AM and walked into it just as the light was coming up. Walking through the formation, we could see some of the circles were very low to the ground. Then the next circle you would walk into, the lay would be like 6 inches above the ground and as you would try to walk on it, it would crunch, like breaking glass.
Some of the centers were beautifully laid out in nests. Other centers were actually broken, so there were indications that some of them had very strong energy on them and others were put down with very great care and beautifully laid. It was a very contrasting formation in terms of differences in each individual circle.

I HAVE BEEN IN FORMATIONS IN THE U. K. OVER THE LAST 15 YEARS IN WHICH THE PLANTS SEEMED TO BE SLIGHTLY RAISED ABOVE THE SOIL AND WHEN YOU PUT YOUR FOOT ON THEM, IT IS ALMOST LIKE STEPPING ON SOMETHING THAT WOULD BE CRYSTALLINE OR GLASS …

Exactly!

…SO THAT IT CRUNCHES.

You are describing exactly what was happening to us. It felt like a sacrilege to tread on them. It felt like we were breaking something so beautiful as the plants crunched underneath our feet.


Massive pattern of circles in East Field, Alton Priors, Wiltshire, U. K. wheat, estimated to cover 96,600 square feet, or 2.25 acres, with 150 circles in a very strange design spread across 1,033 feet and 490 feet wide. Aerial images © 2007 by Lucy Pringle Also see:  Cropcircleconnector.com. 



COULD YOU DESCRIBE FROM YOUR PHYSICAL EXPERIENCE OF BEING THE FIRST PEOPLE IN THE EAST FIELD CIRCLES, WHAT WERE THE SMALLEST SIZES OF THE CIRCLES UP TO THE LARGEST?

I’d say the smallest circles were maybe 2 to 2.5 feet wide. Then as you would walk a line of them, they would get progressively bigger and bigger. And then the big one as you got closer to the center, I would say was about 150 feet across at least, I’m guessing. (Largest was 160-foot-diameter). The formation was just massive and vast.

DID YOU HEAR ANY SOUND IN AND AROUND THE FLASH OF LIGHT?

No, no sound. It was very windy.  We had our hoods up. It was a very windy evening.

SO THIS FORMATION AND THAT FLASH OF LIGHT OCCURRED WHEN THERE WAS A STRONG WIND?

Oh, yeah.  It was a strong windy night.

WHICH ALMOST MAKES IT THAT MUCH MORE REMARKABLE THAT IT WOULD BE THAT PRECISE ON THE GROUND.

I think so, yes.

THE CRYSTALLIZATION MIGHT HAVE BEEN ON PURPOSE TO PRESERVE IT IN THE WIND?

That’s a good observation. It sounds reasonable to me.

 Physical Impact of East Field Circles On People

From our own experience being there, witnessing it, and feeling the energy that we felt, it was very electric! We were dancing on the top of Knap Hill when we saw it, too.
Since then, a number of people who have gone in the formation, including myself, we have had dry throats and headaches. And we’ve had kind of tired feelings and some of the symptoms you can get from going in formations that I’ve experienced over the years.

WHICH W. C. LEVENGOOD, THE BIOPHYSICIST, ASSOCIATES WITH THE PRESENCE OF MICROWAVE ENERGIES, OTHER COMPLEX ENERGIES AND AN ANOMALY IN THE MAGNETIC FIELD.

Yes.

THERE IS DEFINITELY MEDICAL EVIDENCE THAT NEGATIVELY CHARGED IONS VERSUS POSITIVELY CHARGED IONS – ASSUMING IT WAS SOME KIND OF SPINNING PLASMA THAT CREATED THE ENORMOUS AND AMAZING FORMATION – THOSE DIFFERENCES IN THE CHARGE OF THE PLASMAS CAN AFFECT HUMANS IN A VARIETY OF WAYS.

Yes." 

Terje Toftenes Stepped into Formation  On Wednesday, July 11

Terje Toftenes:  "I also had that experience when I stepped on the outskirts of the formation that if you are used to stepping on very cold snow, it kind of cracks under your feet. It was the same sound.
These stems were not broken. They were just gently bent and people who have been doing crop circle research over the years, they have found this is how it usually is in genuine formations – that the stems are not broken. They are gently bent so the crop is not dying. It’s growing and if the crop is young, it will kind of straighten up again.

I also felt there was a strong radiation from the formation. Gary told me the first morning that he was in there that pretty soon he had a bad headache. I experienced the same myself when I was in there four days later. Inside this crop formation, I had been there for half an hour when I had a terrible headache. It lasted until I left the formation. When I got into the car and drove away, the headache was gone.

 East Field Is Not Flat Something Knew How to Make Ovals On the Ground That Would Look Like Perfect Circles from the Air

The East Field is not a totally flat pancake field. It actually curves up and down. When you look at the formation from up above from an aerial photo, you see that the circles are absolutely 100% correct circles. To make circles look 100% from the air in a field that has up and down hills, you cannot create 100% perfect circles on the ground. You have to create ovals. And that’s the case here. All the circles that are lying on a hilly surface more than a flat surface, they are ovals.

To construct 100% correct ovals in total darkness – everything you do is extremely difficult because you can’t see anything. So, to construct not just one, but several ovals and large ones – the largest one is like 50 meters, or 160 feet. Under those dark conditions, I would consider that impossible and everyone I have spoken to among the researchers down here and also civil engineers who are used to land surveys – they say that to do that under those conditions and also within that limited time frame (90 minutes to 1 hour and 45 minutes), they regard that as absolutely impossible for humans to do.”

 Extraordinary Non-Human Intelligence Behind Crop Formations

We are thrilled about what has happened and feel the public should know, the world should know, that something is going on in these fields that – well, I just can’t describe it. I get goose bumps all over my body when I’m talking about it, you know?

IN YOUR GUT INTUITION, WHAT DO YOU SENSE IS BEHIND THE CROP FORMATIONS?

I’m absolutely convinced it is a very intelligent entity, or whatever it is. To me, I have a feeling that what we perceive with our five senses is just a part of the real reality. Our 5 senses are constructed to perceive reality in the 3-dimensional reality. I have a strong feeling that there is life going on within us and around us that we do not perceive.

I think there are other intelligences in this universe visiting and monitoring us. And I have a very strong feeling that our governments know a lot more about this than they will tell us. So, I think it is either something projected on the ground from an alien source. Or it is projected on the ground from an inter-dimensional source that we are not able to perceive with our senses. But definitely, this source has decided to present itself in a way that is so beautiful and that is not hostile that creates the most thrilling feelings within us and invite us to explore the unknown and invite us to start discussions about realities, consciousness … and it is an invitation to start growing as people again because we have for so long been stuck in our materialistic world view and it’s probably time to take the next step in the evolution of humankind. That’s my opinion.

TERJE, WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE IDEA THAT CROP FORMATIONS OVER THE PAST QUARTER CENTURY ARE A KIND OF 3-DIMENSIONAL SYMBOL LANGUAGE BASED ON MATH THAT HAVE SOME KIND OF FUNCTION IN RELATIONSHIP TO THE SURFACE OF THIS EARTH THAT WE DON’T UNDERSTAND?

If the circle makers are trying to pass through messages to humankind, why do it in such a difficult way? Why not spell it out in letters in the fields? I think it’s like when you educate children. If you tell children to do this, not do that, that’s not real education. Real education is when you lead your children to explore things on their own. Then they really learn. That’s what I think these formations do. They invite us to start a learning process where we have to be the active one. They are helping us on the way, they are giving us signs, they are giving us wonders to explore – but we have to do the work ourselves. That’s how we are going to evolve and grow and learn.

 Why Are Governments Threatened by Crop Formations?

SO, WHY WOULD CROP FORMATIONS AROUND THE WORLD THREATEN GOVERNMENTS AND MILITARY?

Because it threatens our world view. It threatens our belief systems. To feel secure in society, you have to feel that you have control. These crop formations tell us that the governments do not have control. They are apparently appearing in our fields at night and I guess the military is pretty frustrated – well, I KNOW the military in England is very frustrated because their job is to control the airspace of England and something is invading this airspace almost every night! I’m not just talking of crop formations, but also of UFOs of which there are many reports here every summer and during the whole year actually. So, I guess the government is very concerned about letting the situation get out of control. You can just imagine what would happen if some government said, ‘OK, we just have to inform you that we are aware of Something fiddling around in our fields every summer. We don’t know what it is, but it is certainly there and much more intelligent than us. So, just watch out.’

What kind of situation would that create? What would our churches say? How would they define God? It’s like opening an enormous box of possibilities that you can’t control and that’s why the government does not want the people to be aware of this.

WHAT IS IT GOING TO TAKE TO MAKE GOVERNMENTS AND LEADERS ON THIS PLANET FINALLY TALK IN TRUE LANGUAGE AND FACTS WITH THE REST OF THE CITIZENRY ABOUT THE FACT THAT WE’RE NOT ALONE AND THERE ARE PHENOMENA RELATED TO ADVANCED INTELLIGENCES?

That’s the major question, Linda. I don’t have a proper answer to that. I’m afraid what it’s going to take is a crisis, just like the environmental situation. We have to have a crisis before we start reacting. We are very conservative in the way we conduct our lives. We don’t want change, even though we say we are open to change, deep down we don’t want it. We want to live our safe, predictable lives as we always have done. And these phenomena are kind of opening a door to Something we cannot control. We do not know what it is. It’s risky. It might be dangerous. I don’t know what it takes, but I would say it takes some kind of crisis before we really open our eyes and before the government is willing to establish some type of organized investigation.

But I think the destruction of Earth will also affect not only this planet, but will have an effect outside our planet. That’s why I think the concern is rising and Some Other force, or Intelligence, is trying to give us some hints that we should start opening our eyes now and see that we are not alone.

DO YOU THINK THE CROP CIRCLE MYSTERY IS HEADED TOWARD SOME KIND OF RESOLUTION IN WHICH THE INTELLIGENCE BEHIND THE CROP FORMATIONS OVER ALL THESE YEARS WILL MAKE ITSELF PUBLIC TO HUMANS ON THIS PLANET?

I have a feeling it is. I have a feeling you can see that very clearly from the way it is accelerating. The phenomenon is growing. It’s definitely taking us somewhere. We are headed toward crisis in the energy systems on this Earth. We are headed toward environmental crisis. I mean, for just talking about energy – in like 40 years, we will run out of gas. And we will run out of the energy that drives 80% of all our systems on the Earth. So, in 50 Earth years, we will have some pretty big troubles on our hands.  If we don’t wake up and do something about that pretty soon, then this planet is going down, this civilization is on its way down.

I think this crop circle thing is a wake up call and the reason it’s accelerating is because this crisis we are onto is also accelerating pretty fast. So, it’s a wake up call and a sign that we are full speed towards a crisis.”

What A Biophysicist Says About Crop Formations

“I have never seen such rapid changes from plant sample to plant sample in both of the ring circles. That means the plasma energies were so compartmentalized that wheat growing only twelve inches from another sample was very different.”
- W. C. Levengood, Biophysicist

 October 11, 2010  Albuquerque, New Mexico  -  The following is my presentation at the Brazil Conference: “Science Discusses the Crop Circle Phenomenon,”  September 25 – 26, 2010, in  Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.

As a science and environment investigative reporter, I made my first trip to Wiltshire County, England, in July 1992, to explore the beautiful mystery of crop formations. The first pattern I stepped into convinced me I had encountered a powerful and profound force. A group of us heard about this a pattern of five circles below Milk Hill and had walked along the crest to look from above. The sky was blue, the wheat was glistening and there were five circles, four connected by undulating paths and one circle by itself.


Reported on July 16, 1992, this 336-foot-long pattern of circles and pathways in wheat field below Milk Hill and the Lockeridge White Horse. Aerial image © 1992 by George Wingfield.

John Martineau did this diagram to clearly show the unusual pattern that measured 336 feet end-to-end and all of the circles were swirled clockwise. All of the pathways were laid from south to north.


July 16, 1992, Milk Hill wheat formation diagram by John S. Martineau based on aerial survey.

We began to run down the hill and into a tramline that went straight to the edge of the pattern. Everyone was laughing and yelling until we reached the edge of a large circle. I walked forward and was stopped by what felt like a wall of jello. I had encountered that same kind of jello resistance before in a lab near a large Tesla coil that was emitting an electrostatic field.


This 336-foot-long pattern of five circles and pathways in wheat field was reported on July 16, 1992, below Milk Hill and the Lockeridge White Horse. Photograph © 1992 by Linda Moulton Howe.

Everyone became quiet, in awe of the “swirling water” in front of us. The wheat plants were laid down in fluid, liquid-looking patterns, seven layers deep in some places. I lifted up top plants to find a layer below going 90 degrees to the top layer. I lifted up the second layer and found a third layer going 45 degrees to the second layer. I lifted up the third layer to find a fourth layer going 90 degrees to the third layer And so on down to the soil, each layer going a different direction to the layer above.

The other people had walked to the far left end circle. But for some reason, I was drawn to the edge of the large circle that had an L-shaped pattern projecting outward. I touched the wheat heads on the edge of that circle and suddenly was overwhelmed with the sense that I was not alone, that a presence of Another Intelligence was palpable and It was “absorbing me.” When I have stared into the eyes of Siberian tigers in a zoo, I have felt the same powerful intelligence that watches me in curiosity, but if I crossed a certain line my survival would not be guaranteed. In fact, the residue in my mind after that encounter with the unseen is that life is not guaranteed on Earth and that crop formations might be a link to an incomprehensible intelligence concerned about influencing the Earth’s future timeline. That was July 1992.

The next year in 1993 and nearly every year since, I have gathered soil and plant samples from crop formations in England and the United States to ship to W. C. Levengood at his Pinelandia Biophysical Laboratory in Grass Lake, Michigan.

A year after that in 1994, Dr. Levengood published his crop circle research in the international botany journal, Physiologia Plantarum. His article was entitled, “Anatomical anomalies in crop formation plants.”


Physiologia Plantarum 92: 356-363 1994, “Anatomical anomalies in crop formation plants” © 1994 by W. C. Levengood, Biophysicist.

By then, Dr. Levengood described crop formations as “force diagrams,” with the plants providing visual clues as to the type and structure of the energy involved. He wrote: “evidence is presented, which indicates that structural and cellular alterations take place in plants exposed within the confines of the crop formations – differences that were determined to be statistically significant when compared with control plants taken outside the formations.” Biophysical changes include:

- Abnormal growth node swelling and reorientation caused by microwave heating. In 1996 in a Butte, Nebraska, wheat formation, Dr. Levengood found on the left – growth nodes reoriented 72% compared to normal control stems in the center. Some of the plants shown on the right had node reorientations up to 173% compared to the normal control plants.


Growth node swelling and reorientation in Butte, Nebraska, wheat formation, 1996.

- Expulsion cavities in growth nodes also caused by microwave heating. The hole in each growth node shown here was caused by heating of the water in the nodes hot enough to burst out, leaving the holes. These expulsion cavities were found throughout a flattened circle of wheat in Garnett, Kansas, in 1994.


Growth node expulsion cavities in Garnett, Kansas, wheat formation, 1994.

- Another dramatic example of expulsion cavities where growth nodes exploded from microwave heating was discovered in a concentric ring formation on June 28, 1997, in a Salem, Oregon, wheat field.

- Abnormal accelerated growth in embryogenesis that produces looped, malformed peduncles. The white arrow points at a malformed peduncle at the base of the wheat seed head discovered in a 1999 formation at Avebury, Wiltshire, England. The peduncle is the stalk right below the seed head. The malformation is caused by ion-electron avalanches from spinning plasma vortices that interact with the plants during the crop formation process and accelerate growth in peduncle cells.

- Here is another severely abnormal peduncle that loops and loops and loops caused by accelerated growth after a spinning plasma vortex containing ion-electron avalanches interacts with the plants during the creation of a crop formation in Whitefish, Montana, also in 1999.

- Significant changes in seed germination and development. The top seedlings show 80% increased seed development over control seedlings on bottom, collected in a June 28, 2003, wheat formation in Solano, California. Seed development in crop formations can also go the other way – be weaker and less vigorous.

Why do crop formation seeds have either vigorous, accelerated seed development? Or weaker, slower growth? Dr. Levengood has studied seeds, plants and soil from 322 crop formations in the United States, England, Canada, and Israel since 1993. He is convinced that the force involved in producing the complex and genuinely mysterious crop patterns are spinning plasma vortices. In the spinning plasma vortex, Dr. Levengood hypothesizes there are two energy components that have the most impact on plant growth and structure:

1) Microwave Radiation Energy – that can produce tissue heating and slow down or stop embryonic growth, cause changes in cell walls, expand growth nodes and heat node water to eruptions that leave holes in growth nodes.

2) Ion-electron Avalanche Energy – can produce seedling growth enhancement as an antioxidant that reduces free radical levels in seeds.

The next year in 1995, Dr. Levengood published in the Journal of Scientific Exploration more about his ongoing crop formation research entitled, “Semi-Molten Meteoric Iron Associated with A Crop Formation.”

By then, Dr. Levengood was convinced the complex energies that produce crop formations come from the upper atmosphere downward. 


445-foot-long formation found August 8, 1993, in a wheat field below the White Horse at Cherhill Down and Oldbury Castle a few miles west of Silbury Hill.  Aerial photograph © 1993 by Colin Andrews.

The formation that convinced him was a 1993 wheat pattern on a hillside at Cherhill in Wiltshire County, England. The big formation was 445 feet long. Right in the middle were two overlapping arcs that no one had ever seen before in crop formations.

In the 1991 book, “The Civilization of the Goddess, The World of Old Europe by Marija Gimbutas, I found examples of Old European script that included the “lu” symbol underlined in green. That symbols was commonly used 6,000 to 7,000 years ago on religious objects and is interpreted as communication between man and the gods.

As an experiment, a magnet was dragged through some of the wheat. One seed head stuck to the magnet. That seed head was covered with a thin coating of iron oxide. Since the iron glaze was distributed like spray paint over the 1993 Cherhill soil and plants, Dr. Levengood reasoned that the iron was in a liquid or semi-liquid state rotating inside a spinning plasma before it was deposited by centrifugal force during the formation’s creation. The likely source of the iron? Meteoritic dust in the upper atmosphere.
Dr. Levengood wrote, “Both soil chunks and plant tissue taken from specific regions within the 1993 wheat crop formation in Cherhill, England, exhibited a high degree of magnetic attraction. That is because iron oxides, hematite (Fe2O3) and magnetite (Fe3O4) fused into a heterogeneous mass like a ‘magnetic glaze.’ This material appears to be of meteoric origin and apparently impacted the ground while in the semi-molten state.”

The above 40-power photomicrograph taken in 1993 at Dr. Levengood’s laboratory shows the underside of a Cherhill wheat leaf’s epidermal cell structure imprinted with thin magnetic iron glaze. The backside of this leaf was not even damaged by the molten iron deposit because of the Liedenfrost effect. That means suddenly heated leaves can release steam through their stomata that creates a protective layer between the leaves and whatever warm substance touches them. In this case, it was melted meteoric iron particles sprayed on the plants and soil.

Dr. Levengood asked, “Is it possible that a pair of downward directed, counterclockwise plasma vortices intersected and captured meteoric dust along the way?”

Working backwards from the biophysical evidence, Dr. Levengood hypothesized that plasmas of positively charged ions and negatively charged electrons were spinning high in the atmosphere and descended toward the ground carrying microwaves and other complex energies. But the source of spinning plasma vortices is still a mystery.

Dr. Levengood wondered if the iron dust were heated to a semi-molten state by microwaves contained in the plasma sub-vortices? The next step would be that spinning plasma vortices carried the iron dust to the wheat field where complex energies created the Cherhill pattern. If so, this would mean there is an unknown phenomenon of ionospheric plasma vortices that can descend to the Earth’s surface, interact with crops and grasses and leave remarkable, often baffling patterns that indicate the spinning plasma can compartmentalize its energies in clockwise and counterclockwise directions and enhance growth in one ring of crop and repress growth in another ring.

Whatever the source of the spinning plasmas, the evidence indicates that meteoric dust impacted the ground while in a semi-molten state and was confined to multiple, tight vortices within the 1993 Cherhill wheat formation.”

Since his publication about finding the magnetite sprayed on the Cherhill wheat and soil, Dr. Levengood has found high concentrations of magnetic iron in some other crop formations, as much as 700 times higher than normal soil (0.4 milligram of magnetite per gram of soil.) Further, the distribution of magnetic iron on the soil indicates it was spun outward by centrifugal force.

To date, Dr. Levengood has studied soil from more than 100 crop formations around the world and says, “In about 99% of those soil cases, these were spherical, tiny - ranging from 5 microns up to 100 microns or about 1/10th of a millimeter. EDS (Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy) shows the spheres are pure magnetite.”


Red arrows point to magnetite in soil gathered from August 1997 oats formation in Marion, New York.
For those who argue the magnetite nodules in crop formation soil is just some natural phenomenon, in 2002 the journal Nature published two articles about spherical micrometeorite particles. What was emphasized in both papers was how rare these particles are. Twenty or thirty magnetite particles were found down at the bottom of a well in Antarctica about 80 feet underground. In crop formations, Dr. Levengood has opened up some soil sample bags from magnet drags and under a microscope, he has found hundreds of magnetite and hematite particles. That means the spinning plasma vortices have attracted meteoritic iron dust into them and the result is a unique concentration of magnetite nodules in crop formation soils.

What are plasmas? 


Lightning plasma bolts, May 31, 2010, Chicago, Illinois. Plasmas are so different from solids, liquids and gases that sometimes they are called a “fourth state of matter.” Mother Nature uses plasmas in lightning bolts, flames and the Northern Lights auroras. Beyond Earth,  99% of all matter in the universe exists in the plasma state. Stars are all plasmas.

Technically, plasmas are defined as a collection of electrically charged particles produced when atoms and molecules of matter are heated and release a soup of positively and negatively charged ions, electrons, neutral atoms, molecules, and photons. Physicists talk about high-energy and low-energy plasmas. High-energy plasmas are produced at high temperatures. Low-energy plasmas can form at room temperatures. Dr. Levengood says that low-energy plasmas occur when the electromagnetic charges become the primary determinant of molecular behavior. Low-energy plasmas, he thinks, are involved in crop circle formations.

Plasmas continuously produce and absorb photon light energy so they glow. Another plasma phenomenon is known as “ball lightning.” Small, luminous spheres sometimes emerge during thunderstorms and emit a hissing sound. However, ball lightning usually lasts only a few seconds and dies out suddenly, either silently or explosively.

Do plasmas really spin?


NASA image of spiraling plasma in atmosphere, February 9, 1988. 

NASA ECHO 7 electron beam Larmor spiral revealed by the direct ionization of the dense neutral atmosphere near 100 kilometers. The image is that 
of a 36-keV (electron volts), 180-mA (milliamps) beam pulse of 150 ms (milliseconds) duration injected upward at a pitch angle of 130 degrees. Small bright glow is accelerator on the MAIN payload from which the beam originated.

For people who question the existence of spiral plasma vortices, this is a photograph of one taken by NASA’s ECHO 7 satellite on February 9, 1988. One of the purposes of ECHO 7 was to study electron beam interactions with the ionosphere at an altitude of about 100 kilometers. NASA ejected electron beams into the ionospheric layer that produced bright auroral streaks including this image that clearly shows the classical spinning motion of charged, glowing ions spiraling upward along one of the earth’s magnetic field lines after the impact of the NASA electron beam.

Dr. Levengood thinks low-energy plasmas could explain the mysterious lights photographed in and around crop formations, sacred stone circles and dolmens. He thinks the reason could be electric and magnetic field anomalies at sacred sites that enable low energy plasma creation.

For example, here is a photograph taken on August 1, 1999, of British crop circle investigator, Gordon Stewart, sitting in the center of a large pattern at Roundway in Wiltshire County. The spiraling plasma arch was not seen by Gordon, the photographer, or anyone around him at the time.
The camera was 35mm with activated flash. Dr. Levengood hypothesizes that the arch of white light is produced by low-energy plasmas that could not be seen by human eyes. But the silver in the 35mm film was sensitive enough to record the photon energy in the plasma.

Other mysterious small spheres of light have been seen with human eyes - and even photographed and videotaped in and around crop formations – since the early 1990s.

 Here for example, is a small, visible sphere of light that moved rapidly above the triple crescent formation at Barbury Castle, Wiltshire, England on August 7, 1999.

Why are some plasma spheres seen and photographed, but the spinning plasma vortices that Dr. Levengood thinks is responsible for creating many of the truly complex crop patterns around the world not seen and photographed? That is still an unsolved physics mystery.

Why Would Spinning Plasmas Accelerate Growth in Some Plants and Slow Growth in Others? 


When seeds from mid-summer formations were planted, biophysicist W. C. Levengood  measured 45% faster growth rates than in control plants. Photograph of 1991 English wheat growth comparison from inside and outside circle © 1991 by W. C. Levengood.

Dr. Levengood thinks the answer is: microwave frequencies versus ion-electron avalanches. Microwaves heat water in the plant growth nodes and cause growth nodes to lengthen, reorient and explode with expulsion cavities.

- Microwave wavelengths on the electromagnetic spectrum are between infra red and VHF and their heating ability can retard seed development.

- Ion-Electron avalanches are electrons freed from the ions are accelerated by the electric field. These electrons may get so much energy by being accelerated that they can ionize subsequent molecules when they collide with them. Thus, more free electrons are created that also start accelerating. A chain reaction develops, called an electron avalanche. One single electron may free thousands of other electrons.


Ion-electron avalanches act as anti-oxidants that can accelerate growth in plants. The avalanche occurs when a lot of free electrons, usually in a gas, are accelerated by an electric field. The electrons crash into each other and ions are released. More electrons crash into each other, more ions are released causing an avalanche that can produce corona discharges small or large. One of Nature’s largest ion-electron avalanche is a lightning bolt. Dr. Levengood hypothesizes that the same ion-electron avalanche in crop formations occurs at the low energy plasma level that interacts with seeds, plants and soil.

Here is the front page of the June 8, 2006, The Herington Times newspaper in Herington, Kansas, that shows wheat farmer, Merle Ecklund, standing next to one of the mysterious two circles he found in his field, each about 28 feet in diameter. Each circle formation consisted of three rings of standing wheat, each ring a different height. The inner ring stood 19 inches high and the outer ring was 42 inches high, a full foot higher than the rest of the wheat field that averaged 30 inches high.

Dr. Levengood examined plants and soil from both wheat circles and found “the rings are evidence of harmonics in a resonance system where there is interference at the overlapping positive and negative energies. I came to that conclusion after studying dozens of wheat seed head samples that were gathered by Mrs. Ecklund every twelve inches across both ringed circles. What makes them so extraordinary is I could find no evidence that I normally find in crop formations such as flattened plants, and node lengthening, swelling, reorientation and expulsion cavities. The rings were defined by differences in heights.

“I have never seen such rapid changes from plant sample to plant sample in both of the ring circles. That means the plasma energies were so compartmentalized that wheat growing only twelve inches from another sample was very different. This is perhaps the most complicated example of ion-electron avalanches I’ve yet studied. I tested the respiration rate of the mitochondria in the wheat plant cells and did germination studies of seeds sampled from inside the different rings versus normal control wheat from outside the formations.

There were big differences between samples in the balance of respiration rates, free radical oxidants and antioxidants. When that balance is changed, I think the plants have either more rapid growth or slower growth. The one ingredient that can change that complex balance and accelerate or retard plant growth is ion-electron avalanches because the positive and negative ions can alter plant development at the cellular level.”

 2010 Unusual Wheat Formation Linked to Mysterious Lights


Two 6-pointed stars, one of dark standing crop with a delicate second star in the middle defined in flattened wheat by clockwise or counter-clockwise directions of downed wheat. The approximately 200-foot-diameter circular pattern was reported July 10, 2010, near the Guy's Cliffe house (upper left) in Old Milverton, Warwickshire, England.

The central, faint and delicate star was defined in flattened wheat by clockwise and counter-clockwise directions of downed wheat – what Dr. Levengood would call complex compartmentalization of the spinning plasma energies containing microwaves and ion electron avalanches. The wheat formation was approximately 200 feet in diameter.

Crop circle photographer and investigator, Andrew Pyrka, from Cheltenham, England, drove several hours to reach the pattern at 3:30 AM on July 12, about two days after the pattern was first reported.

At dawn, Andrew was photographing in the early light and was shocked to see three, bright, orange-yellow balls of light moving in the air not far from the formation where the round, orange circle is. Thus, the 2010 Guy’s Cliffe wheat formation combines an extraordinary and unique pattern with the presence of the mysterious glowing spheres that Dr. Levengood would now call, “intelligent plasmas of unknown origin.”

If hypothetical spinning plasma vortices are involved with crop circle creations, what unknown trigger in the upper atmosphere would repeatedly produce them? Are sound frequencies applied, perhaps outside the range of human hearing? If low-energy plasmas with microwave frequencies produce the physical impacts on soil and plants, are they also producing the images of mysterious lights and spheres on videotapes and photographs? Are the mysterious lights an unidentified natural phenomenon? Or are they supervised by an advanced intelligence that humans have yet to encounter? Could the lights be connected to the same ancient intelligence that inspired other marks around the world in ziggurats, pyramids, mounds and stone circles?
