Crop Circles

Crop Circles are entheogenic. If they are fake, it might be the only true art form left (and possibly the grandest ever conceived and executed). If it falls under the notion of “prank”, by definition, it must remain anonymous.  Those who claim the work, when demonstrating their technique, fall miserably short of the intricacies involved, especially in the dark, clandestine, and with a time limit. There are no mistakes, and they are always complete, finished within a matter of hours, and no-one being able to spot them in the process. The most aesthetically pleasing ones defy explanation, no matter how you look at it. In order for this art to be effective in its intention, no credit must be taken, painstaking planning and implementation are involved, and skilled stealth techniques must be practiced and acquired.  There is no school for this. The real art school seems to be the earth and its fields of grain and stalk. You can’t sell it, it’s temporary, and it transcends the ego driven, heroin induced, and very urban “artist mystique”. The experience, the work, speaks volumes beyond words.

Crop Circles have been around for many years. They range from simple circles to complex mathematical designs. It is still open to dispute whether some are caused by natural phenomena or all created by human hand.

Google has caused a bit of a stir with today’s crop circle doodle. Crop circles are increasingly used for advertising, like this one for Nike which appeared in Italy in 2005.

Using the Crop Circle Archive we’ve compiled a list of all the crop circle incidents in England this year. Wiltshire is definitely the crop circle hotspot of the UK, with 78 of the 93 appearing there and nine in Milk Hill alone. We’ve also added the coordinates so you can map them. What can you do with it?

This little booklet is packed with practical information and advice about things to think about, and be mindful of, when visiting the crop circles and should be the constant companion to all those visiting the fields.

The importance of this little book cannot be overstated. It is an open attempt by the crop circle community to engage with the farmers and to improve awareness of both the countryside and the farmers’ concerns about those visiting the fields.

We hope to spread this little book as far and as widely as we can. Many researchers carry a few copies with them to give out to people they may meet inside the circles - this is a great idea. They can also be given to any farmers you may meet. Copies can be obtained from the address above.
