by Arjuna Walia:  Crop circles have been appearing around the globe for a very ling time,


and sure, some might be very sloppy and clearly the work of a few pranksters, but others are so elaborate, so clever, so intricate, so meaningful and so precisely designed that their creation would require large amounts of effort, time and technology. It’s truly hard to imagine how some of these designs could be done in the dead of night, with no foot prints left behind, in just a few hours of time.

And after all these decades, none of the perpetrators have been caught in the act of making any of the truly extraordinary formations.” – Richard Dolan, historian, academic, author, and one of the world’s leading UFO researchers (source)

The circles that are most likely not hoaxes, have actually been studied by reputable scientists from all over the world for decades. For example, Richard Taylor, a University of Oregon physicist  published a paper on it in the 2011 issue of Physics World stating:

“Crop circle arts are not going to give up their secrets easily. This summer, unknown artists will venture into the countryside close to your homes and carry out their craft, safe in the knowledge that they are continuing the legacy of the most science-oriented art movement in history.” (source)

Yes you read that correctly, “the most science-oriented art movement in history.” What would cause a physicist to conclude something that did not involve an extraterrestrial explanation? For a physicist to even examine this phenomenon… This would:


Above is a picture of an 800 foot crop circle that appeared in Wiltshire, England back in 2001. It caused a lot of commotion. and as you can see, it was very beautiful and extremely complex. It was a design consisting of 409 circles that form what’s known as a triskelion, a symbol that dates back thousands of years. There is some great footage of it in the documentary “Crop Cricles: quest for truth,” by academy award winning director William Gazecki. You can view that here.

“It was so large that it took us half an hour to find the center.” (quote taken from video link below)

There are some more great images of it in this YouTube video, a helicopter flying over it from the documentary “Thrive” in this video (at the 26.16 minute mark). It is one of thousands of verified formations that continue to baffle scientists, researchers and onlookers.

Taylor (mentioned before the picture) also expressed the same belief, that this was one of the greatest art revolutions (done by humans) in history when he published his scientific analysis of crop circles in the Journal Nature in 2010. 

He actually concluded that the circle makers must be using GPS devices, lasers, and microwaves to create these designs, and this is because, after being studied in the lab, the nodes of some of the stalks are blasted out on one side. This same effect has been replicated by highly localized microwave heating. which is why the stock flops completely over to one side.


Again, this is why Richard Taylor suggested that the hoaxers are using GPS devices, lasers and microwaves..

Think about it for a second, do you really think that these supposed hoaxers are using such an advanced level of technology? It’s clear that there would be no other way to make some of these circles. What is really going on here?

“If something like this caused the formations, then we are clearly talking about a highly sophisticated agency behind the phenomenon.” – Richard Dolan (source)

Did you know that the electromagnetic field over the area where the circle has been produced is usually electrostatically charged?  Did you know that there is a rare form of electromagnetic energy called an “ionized plasma vortex,” also known as ball lighting involved with these formations? (source)

The helicopters you see in the video are military helicopters. Military involvement with UFOs is well documented, and this should be no surprise. For more information on that you can read this article.

These are verified facts, which is why such explanations published in scientific journals, (like Dr. Taylor’s mentioned earlier) have tried to come up with explanations that differ from, unknown or extraterrestrial.  For example, Dr. Terence Meadon, a professional physicist, meteorologist and archaeologist  at the University of Oxford said that these balls of light are a results of wind currents and ionized plasmas. Whatever the case may be, this kind of light phenomenon is associated with these circles.

“The patterns of the formations themselves have been studied endlessly. Aside from being supremely beautiful, many seem to be messages in one form or another, often with cosmological implications. None seem ominous or evil. If one receives any sense or feeling from them, it is benevolence. If it were to be the case that these formations are created by an extraterrestrial or non-human intelligence, we may conclude that at least one of the groups here might in fact care about us and wish to help us.” – Richard Dolan  (source)

So, next time somebody tells you about a crop circle, don’t instantly brush it off as a hoax. Although many of them are, some of them are extremely perplexing and unexplainable.
