My theory is that at one time there were some mischievous beings - whether of this earth or otherwise, who had encountered some creational
shortcomings in their daily lives and decided to devise some art. The designs (circles) occurred in one place, generally in one span of time (whether
that span of time is short or long is only dependent on your point of view) because that is just where 'they' happened to be at the time.
I can envision some teenaged aliens using some device or modification thereof to create this 'art', subsequent discovery of and punitive measures
implemented by some type of alien 'parental unit' for the perceived transgression of said 'art', and then a ceasing of the activity.
A type of extra-terrestrial graffiti if you will.
If you look at most of them, it's pretty much geometrical artwork at the core, except one in particular that seems to have some kind of coded message
in it. The problem I have with that one, is that it seems to me more like an old IBM program punchcard used to execute commands in the earliest
computers, and less like some form of communication that a highly intelligent being might use. Although, if they were attempting communication, they
probably would be smart enough to cater to the LCD, namely... us.
I think if a relatively hyper-intelligent being were to choose to engage in simple wall-scrawling, which is what it seems it is to me, I would imagine
that they would choose a canvas that caused minimum disturbance to habitat of indigenous species, therefore avoiding wiping out swaths of rain forest.
Wheat, being the most abundant domestically grown form of human sustenance on the planet would seem like as little a waste of resources possible to
sacrifice for art's sake.
I could just be grasping at straws.
