Are Crop Circles a product of the Collective Conciousness?
In my mind, one of the most facinating mysteries of our time is the crop circle phenomenon. Not for the phenomenon itself so much as the evolution of
the phenomenon, as well as the possible implications of it's existance. Of course we have all heard the different theories, i.e. UFOs, as yet
undiscovered weather phenomenon, and pranksters with planks and rope, etc., however I have another theory for you to consider.
First, a brief history is necessary to understand how I came upon this theory: The first crop circle was actually discovered in 1966 when a farmer
stumbled upon a UFO rising from a swamp. He watched it rise, spinning and tilting, and finally climbing at a 45 degree angle disapearing into the sky.
Continuing down the road and around a bend, he came to the swamp from which the object had risen. There he saw a large circular area that was clear of
reeds. A few hours later he returned and the area was covered with floating mass of green reeds that were distributed in a clockwise radial pattern.
The circular mass of reeds was about 30 feet in diameter.
Strictly speaking, this isn't how we typically think of crop circles. In this case a UFO allegedly forced some reeds in a circular pattern under
water. They later floated to the top. Since then however, crop circles have become known to be a dry-land phenomenon.
I'm old enough to remember the first widely-reported incident in 1970, and if I recall, it was about as simple as you could get - a single,
unimpressive, simple circle. Having had a UFO experience in 1967, my first thought at the time was that this could be the landing spot of a
disc-shaped UFO. Now I imagine that there were millions around the world that had the same thought.
As every ATS member knows, more of these simple circles started to appear, along with some slightly more complex ones, only to be "debunked" by Doug
and Dave in 1991 with their claims of having created these circles as a prank. They referenced the aformentioned "swamp circle" as their
inspiration. For a while, this explanation was perfectly feasable to some, however more circles appeared around the world, which were increasingly
more complex, and usually attributed to "copy-cat" pranksters. Over the years, many more circles have appeared literally overnight which, over time,
became still more complex, pretty much eliminating the possibility of pranksters.
Current day circles are a thing of beauty and awe. Some seemingly with messages for mankind, or incredibly detailed 3-dimentional pictures, proving
that there is no way that these can be attributed to weather phenomenon. One is known to have a cryptic representation of the first ten digits of Pi,
for whatever reason.
Now, consider this: Let's assume Doug and Dave were telling the truth, and they actually created those crude circles as they claimed. Now suppose
enough people who were convinced beyond any doubt that UFOs do exist, and are possibly from an alien source, simply could not believe anything other
than crop circles being the result of unknown forces, or just didn't hear of Doug and Dave's prank.
Metaphysical theory, for those who don't know, goes back to ancient times, and some say the bible has hundreds, if not thousands, of examples of
metaphysics which have been mis-interpreted or purposely supressed by the elite (more likely, in my opinion). Now assume for a minute that metaphysics
does indeed exist as a true science and has always existed. Let's further assume that as this metaphysical science states, you can manifest what I
call "state-changes" in your physical world - that is, you can manipulate the physical world with belief alone. Not just claiming belief, but
absolute belief beyond any doubt whatsoever.
