It seems pertinent to take on another “sign” of alien visitation or, perhaps, of paranormal phenomena, the mysterious crop circles that have spread across the world in the thousands since the late 1970s. What’s surprising is how much these signs and their origins date back even further – they’re believed by millions of Americans over time as something different from UFOs!
This article was brought up during our monthly discussion with UFO researcher Bill Cooke regarding ‘The Secret Files,’ a forthcoming book about secret files concerning extraterrestrial contact dating all manner way back prior both to Charles Roswell and ET history itself!
I’m sure many of you remember the 2002 blockbuster Signs, directed by M. Night Shyamalan and starring Mel Gibson and Joaquin Phoenix. “It can’t be by hand, it’s too perfect,” said Rev. Graham Hess (Mel Gibson), after inspecting a football-field sized pattern cut on his wheat crop. The movie grossed $408 million dollars worldwide. I watched it with my son and had a great time.
If you search “crop circles” on Google, you’ll find some amazingly beautiful images, huge patterns of all kinds cut on crops, from symmetric mandala-looking circles to abstract symbols and even an alien face with a disk next to him, carrying some kind of image. But one particular photo has been captured in such high resolution that this website devoted hundreds upon thousands into exploring its meaning. And if there is anything we’ve learned about growth cycle cycles at large scale, what would happen when these tiny geometric shapes begin making their way up our walls? If your first thought was “that must have never happened!” then guess again. As Carl Sagan pointed out 20 years ago, circular objects are extremely useful for communicating information between animals or humans because they often form dense networks which help transmit messages through tight spaces:
[Circular] structures could serve as communication conduits… like communications cables carried overhead without getting lost.
A documentary, Crop Circles: Quest for Truth, directed by William Gazecki, interviews several experts who are clearly puzzled by the whole thing, attributing it to aliens or supernatural phenomena. The preview opens with scary words: “How do you understand what can’t be explained”… “These things are footprints of intelligence,” a voiceover later states. And yet we know nothing about them and no one really knows how they got there. One might assume that these people must have lived far off somewhere where none were discovered before — perhaps in outer space? Or maybe their craft could simply remain dormant all this time like every other UFO sighting at least since 1948. But then why is our Government always claiming alien encounters from now on instead if actual sightings didn´t happen around those times until hundreds years ago? Also strange…the phrase used when talking abut UFOs (as evidenced here) never appeared after 1945 but was borrowed into much earlier statements concerning Alien abductions.
This documentary should be contrasted with the one from National Geographic Channel, Crop Circles: Is it Real? or with the confessions of a crop circle designer, the author Matt Ridley, published in Scientific American in 2002 (Crop Circle Confession.) In his words: “The whole episode taught me two important lessons. First, treat all experts with skepticism and look out for their vested interests — many cerealogists made a pot of money from writing books and leading weeklong tours of crop circles, some costing more than $2,000 a person. Second, never underestimate the gullibility of the media. Even the Wall Street Journal published articles that failed to take the man-made explanation seriously. As for the identity of those who created the complicated mathematical and fractal patterns that appeared in the mid-1990s, I have no idea. But Occam’s razor suggests they were more likely to be undergraduates than aliens.”
Fractals became popular around that time and the documentary by National Geographic conveniently explains how it’s done.
The unbelievable thing is that even after the two pranksters that started it all in 1978, Doug Bower and Dave Chorley, confessed to their ruse that demonstrated how easy it was to make the circles, people still fall for these crop circles folk lores. But how could there be thousands of these things spread around the world? Surely, some may not have been man-made?
Believers remain unwavering. Of course, no one has ever witnessed a non-human-made crop circle appear. It all happens conveniently at night in secrecy, out of view. If it’s true that the purpose of the circles is to convey some kind of message, wouldn’t it make sense to have them happen in front of actual witnesses?
And what is this alleged message that’s taking thousands of crop circles to attempt to convey over 30 years? It’s either a very complex message or we are just too plain stupid and can’t get it. Thankfully, the aliens are patient messengers. Or, perhaps, some of our own brothers and sisters are having a good laugh and making good money at the expense of people’s yearning to believe in what’s not there.
