Crop Circles

Unread post by Searcher » Tue Jul 26, 2016 2:21 pm

Crop Circles are a mystery...that's a given. This ABC article from today is well worth a read.

Are they created by aliens or worldwide underground art movements? You make up your mind. :)

Interesting that there have been 71 reported crop circles in Australia and more than 12,000 world wide!

One thing no one seems to understand is how plant stalks like canola with a consistency of celery can be bent 90 degrees without snapping and at the same time, the delicate flower heads remain undamaged.

Hi Searcher, thanks for the article. I read your post last week and realised I haven’t had a look at what
was going on in the Crop Circle world for a while. Seems like just as researchers start to piece together
information from the intricate designs even more complex ones appear to further confuse the issue.

Professor Taylor claims research is being held back; this is in formal academia but I believe scientists,
being the inquisitive individuals that they are, would be having a real good look, in there own time,
at the crop circle phenomenon. How could they resist.
I’m hesitant to criticise Prof. Taylor because good on him for speaking to the media but blaming CC’s
on an underground art movement is just a further attempt at removing the ‘alien’ element
from the discourse. It’s a bit too easy just calling it art.

Whether these designs are by aliens or that old chestnut the military or both, seems secondary
as to the why and how of the geometric patterns produced when plants lay over.
How on earth does that force only target the stem just above the ground and affect nothing else ?
Another remarkable CC was produced on an undulating field with circles being elliptical
so they could still be viewed as being perfectly round. Makes you think what else could be possible
with this technology.

Prof. Taylor is on the right track when saying this technology could benefit Agronomy but would the
food be safe to eat; opening up a can of worms like the GM debate did. The scary thing is
the military may be already using this type of technology against an enemy, killing soldiers
and destroying property at will, high above.

Whoever is making these CC’s couldn’t have come up with a more mysterious phenomenon to baffle
and bewilder humans, not only that, but the twin mysteries of what do the designs mean and what
highly sophisticated technology is being used to do it. Maybe we might even find out that it’s not so
sophisticated after all, complex yes, but not as complex as our feeble human brains are imagining it to be.

G’day Tuckeroo. Appreciate your thoughts. They sum up this enduring enigma very nicely. I wish I could enlighten myself a little with a plausible theory, but I can’t think of one!

Like you, I don’t buy the ‘underground art’ explanation. That's a furphy. No doubt some circles are man made but no one can explain the way the plant stalks are bent over without breaking. Node elongations are common and are also part of the mystery along with a number of other unusual changes to the plant itself. So perhaps the only other possibility is the alien one. But why would they bother? What could be the purpose? Are there messages encoded into the images?

Crop circles are a genuine conundrum. For anybody who hasn’t looked, just Google crop circles and click on images. I promise you’ll be amazed! If anyone has an idea of the truth as to how these strange circles and diagrams appear in country fields, please let's know about it here. And please don't tell me all 12,000 were made by men with ropes and planks. :)

That "art movement" must have been around for some time. The first reported crop circle was in the 1600s!!

I think it is too searcher. Ive seen a few docos on the artists doing these and theyre amazing but i dont think they can account for them all!
