CIRCLES is a subject that has always fascinated me. They are bizarre
shapes, symbols, or even detailed pictures that can "magically" appear
overnight in fields all over the world. Most CROP CIRCLES are found
in the U.K., (although in recent years have been appearing in the U.S.,
Canada, Australia, and even places like Japan & India), and are usually
accompanied by a lot of controversy. One of the most common "eXplanations"
for CROP CIRCLES is that they are made by aliens or inter dimensional beings,
but there are other equally whacky ideas out there, such as unknown atmospheric
wind storms or some sort of magnetic magic that is responsible for these
amazing shapes and images.
is some evidence that CROP CIRCLES have been around for centuries, but
the formations we are familiar with nowadays started in the U.K. in the
70's and have been increasing in their popularity, numbers, and compleXity
ever since. Around 90% of all CROP CIRCLES STILL appear in
the U.K., which is a fact that in itself sort of proves that these creations
are man made, (after all, why would aliens prefer the U.K. over other earthly
CIRCLES fascinate me NOT because of their ties to other worldly life forms
or equally uneXplainable aspects, but because they are BEAUTIFUL pieces
of ART! The sheer size of them, as well as the compleX designs, show
how hard the artists have worked to create them over night, and the finished
work is almost always very inspirational to artistic individuals...which
is why I thought I would like to make a page about them here at MisterX.ca
of the most striking things about CROP CIRCLES is the geometry of the designs.
CROP CIRCLES get their name from the fact that they always appear in "crops"
and almost always have a circular shape in their design. Early CROP
CIRCLES were often just one or two circles found in a field, but as time
has gone by their designs have become far more detailed, often consisting
of hundreds of circles.
CIRCLES are almost ALWAYS made up from some sort of circular shape, often
accompanied by straight lines. They can literally be HUGE, measuring
hundreds of feet across. This is why many people feel they couldn't possibly
be created by humans. Below we see a design with a person standing
near the center.
CIRCLE designs can be very simple, such as the one pictured below, and
can be very easily eXplained. The artists who created this design
actually used the straight lines of the crop itself as a starting point.
They likely made this design with one person standing on the right line
holding a string, while one or more others flattened the crop in a circular
motion at various lengths of the string to create the design. As
we can see, this was done from different locations of the crop's selected
line, with the occasional eXtra circle or shape thrown in to make the formation
designs though can be far more detailed, and this beauty below shows such
a design. It may be hard for many of us to imagine HOW such a design
is created, but believe it or not, this can also be done with a simple
string or rope, with one person holding it at a particular point in the
design and another flattening out the crop.
how do I know that CROP CIRCLES are being created this way? Because
I've used a geometry set! Anyone who has "played" with one of these
should recognize the designs in CROP CIRCLES and even how they are created.
I think that the last time I actually "drew" designs with a geometry set
I was probably in Junior High School, but I know that I came up with very
similar shapes and designs.
CIRCLE artists likely use a geometry set to create their designs at home,
then they use the crop itself as their canvas, choose a point on the plain
as their starting point, then use a string or rope to reproduce the design
in the field.
we have seen how easily a piece of string can replace a geometry set and
create perfect circles, straight lines, and even right angles! Add
to this some imagination, creativity, and determination, and you come up
with some truly inspirational designs. I imagine there are likely
dozens of CROP CIRCLE artists out there, and I also imagine that they LOVE
the attention that their designs get. The more compleX they are,
the more attention they will receive, with the CROP CIRCLES often appearing
in news papers, television news broadcasts, and on the internet.
I also imagine that the artists probably try to "out do" each other, and
these are the reasons that the designs are becoming ever more detailed
and interesting as time goes by. Lucky "us"! We get to enjoy
some amazingly sensational art work, and dare I say that it is truly, "out
of this world"?!
This jelly fish design is quite "simple", but leaves us wondering if there
is some other worldly hidden message!
A "simple" abstract design can do the same...
& BELOW: Certain designs have a sort of "free hand" feel to them
which leads me to believe that not a lot of planning was done before they
were created. The designers of these circles likely went to the crops
and just "winged it".
"humming bird" design though shows careful pre-planning and considerable
thought before it was created in the field. Notice the 3 main circles
of the humming bird's body. These would have been made first and
the rest of the design created around them.....
"angel fish" are certainly interesting. Although a super easy design
to achieve, I'm sure they were created on paper before being made in the
"moth man" design is certainly most "x"cellent and gets 2 big thumbs up
from yours truly! Although the "wings" of this design are easily
eXplained, the "body" part of the design is a bit more difficult.
HOW could this be achieved on such a large scale overnight?
first thing that comes to mind when observing this design is the similarity
to Leonardo da Vinci's famous drawing of VITRUVIAN MAN (AKA "the magical
dimensions of man"). Leonardo recognized that even man's body shape
can be drawn by, (guess what?)....geometric shapes!
fact, ANYTHING can be "drawn" on a large scale when we use geometry!
Regular visitors to this site will recognize the following images of the
Set, one of the most compleX of all mathematical equations. Although
the equation itself is compleX and infinite, this image of the complete
set's "spider" or "bug" would have been very easy to re-create in the field.
we have seen how easily almost anyone could create MOST CROP CIRCLES with
a simple string and a bit of knowledge about geometry. Add some artistic
talent, and the designs become almost mind boggling. But the fact
of the matter is, not all CROP CIRCLES are made from circles, and they
can be as varied as the imagination permits. It is for this reason
that they have obtained an other worldly status, with MANY people believing
that they could actually have been created by alien intelligences or even
more unlikely causes....
eXotic...how bizarre...how fanciful...how RIDICULOUS! I'm sorry,
but thinking that these wonderful pieces of artwork could have possibly
been made by aliens is more than just a "stretch" of the imagination!
If there actually ARE intelligent beings out there that want to communicate
with us, (and I'm NOT saying there isn't), I am quite SURE that they could
find a far easier way to do so than drawing pretty pictures for us in farmer's
fields! Think about it....these beings have either traveled THOUSANDS
of light years, or crossed through multiple dimensions to get here.
They obviously have technology beyond our understanding, yet the best they
can do to get our attention is draw pictures in (mostly) U.K. wheat fields?
It really doesn't quite add up....
there are certainly some VERY compelling eXamples of "circles" that have
popped up over the years that really make one ALMOST reconsider his or
her opinions about HOW they are created!
for eXample this above Crop Circle, which contains the image of some sort
of unknown life form along with a very interesting "disk" which apparently
holds some sort of spiraling message within it. Naturally, this "masterpiece"
received MUCH scrutinizing from MANY eXperts, and what they came up with
was VERY entertaining! For instance, although there IS in fact a
"circle" in the image, it slowly spirals down to the center of the circle,
and there does indeed appear to be a message within the spiral. Also,
there is a "portrait" of some sort of humanoid in this CROP CIRCLE, certainly
not an easy thing to do overnight...or is it?
ANY image...even alien portraits, are quite EASY to re-create on ANY scale!
All one has to do is use the "Grid Effect" on them, as seen above.
Take any picture and divide it into equally sized squares, ...the "grid".
Then, make a blank grid with an equal number of squares, eXcept make the
squares any size you like. Reproduce the original image onto the
new grid by "drawing" what appears in each individual square within its
corresponding counterpart on the larger (or smaller) grid. A near
"x"act resized copy can be created in this manner....
what about the message? WAS there indeed something "written" within
the spiraling "arm" of the disk? Oh yes, in fact there was!
Turns out the cryptic message is written in "ascii",
and says, "Beware the bearers of FALSE gifts & their BROKEN PROMISES.
Much PAIN but still time. BELIEVE. There is GOOD out there. We OPpose DECEPTION.
Conduit CLOSING (BELL SOUND)”. Perhaps difficult to originally create,
this image and it's message would be easily "drawn" onto a field using
the Grid Effect!
compelling as the above image and message are, obviously the makers of
this design were far better at making images than they were at writing
alien messages or imagining what aliens might look like! The ascii
message is rather comical, with spelling errors and bell sounds!
The alien itself, well it looks like something out of Star Trek!
Actually, the mathematical chances of an actual alien species that resembles
us in any way coming to the Earth is quite astronomical in itself!
2 eyes (with pupils), a nose, a mouth, a head, a neck, a torso...well,
that doesn't sound very "alien" to me.
Star Trek image similarities and messages apart, why would an alien use
ascii, a near eXtinct computer language to write their message? Why
would they find the need to add a passport picture to their message?
- And what's their fascination with cereal grains?! I once again
come back to my argument that there are MUCH BETTER ways to communicate
with humans than this.
IS NOT ALWAYS BELIEVING! SOME CROP CIRCLE DESIGNS ARE COMPUTER GENERATED!
are actually QUITE intelligent and talented beings, a fact that believers
in "alien" made CROP CIRCLES tend to forget. When we set our minds
to doing something, no matter how bizarre that thing may be, we can accomplish
a LOT...especially when we plan it out first.
matter how familiar or alien an image in the crops may seem, we KNOW that
these images are indeed man made creations and not the result of other
worldly beings visiting us. Although the designs can be compleX,
they certainly are within the limitations of man to have been created.
Are these people determined? - Oh, yes! Are they competitive?
- Of course! Are they artistic? - Oh, most CERTAINLY!
there's anything to be truly appreciated from these images, it would be
the art, the work, and imagination that is behind them. The human
creators are ingenious at making the images take on a life of their own
in our minds! Believe what you like about them, CROP CIRCLES remain
beautiful, mysterious, and inspirational...that much is undeniable!
hope you enjoyed my wee eXploration, (and eXplanation), of CROP CIRCLES.
They really are wonderful pieces of artwork that can be inspirational
