First, I wish to say that I have not plunked this thread down into the Space Exploration forum will-nilly. As we move further into this century, when
it seems that space exploration is gaining some momentum, we also seem to be taking a parallel journey into what some see as dimensional exploration,
sometimes called a spiritual journey. This is seen by many in the phenomenon of crop circles, and the hypothesis that some other form of life is
communicating with us by this method. A form of life from a space we have not yet found.
To explore space, we must not be bound by just those areas that we can measure in kilometers between planetary bodies. We as a species are already
looking at such things as wormholes, if they exist, and the use of quantum mechanics to find shortcuts across the vast ocean that separate the stars.
Ways to defy time itself. In our great leap outward, we may pass into realms heretofore unknown by men, and we must at the very least consider the
possibility that others have tread there before us.
The crop circle is a fact, though many contend that they are nothing but the actions of artistic hoaxers, while others feel that they are the result
of contact with some other form of life. The fact that there is thought to be a connection between them and the classic UFO, some of which may or may
not be of extraterestial origin, means that we must consider this phenomenon at least as much as we would the weather prior to a space launch. To
ignore what might have some impact on our exploration efforts would seems the hight of folly.
I propose a discussion as follows:
1) The best case for and against the reality of crop circles as being a phenomenon outside of human endeavors. Meaning, first and foremost, are crop
circles just hoaxing on a grand scale, or is this something that is outside the human experience? Something caused by entities other than man.
2)If the crop circles are something outside the human element, then what logical explanation and meaning do they have? Are they communication, at
least in the sense that we understand the word? Are they intelligent? Can the "messages" be deciphered?
3)What can we reasonably decide about the possible origin of crop circle makers, if other than human? How do they fit into our admittedly new concepts
of life in this or other parallel universes/dimensions?
4)If they are some other form of life, or the product of some other form of life, how will their reality be likely to impact our own venture into the
cosmos? Would it be negative, positive, or of no value one way or the other?
This forum has a great amount of talent for analyzing pictures and scientific information, for seeing things with a certain objectivity. I would hope
that this discussion would not devolve into mysticism or religion, but take a hard look at what might be a subject that would have some bearing in
humanities reach for the stars.
For years, people have wanted a good scientific look to be taken at the UFO phenomenon, not to debunk or to believe, but to decide what is really
there. While this forum touches on that subject from time to time, it isn't really our venue. However, because of the implications that UFOs and the
crop circle phenomenon have for our future in space, perhaps it is time for a really hard look at the possibility that we are not alone, and what that
means for our future as a space faring race.
Crop circles, if they are not man made, are the most tangible evidence we have to look at so far.
