Exactly, this is the thing that always gets me, people think "Oh hey I can't do that, so no humans could do it!" Anyone can see what a logical fallacy this is, yet they cling to it. This goes for pyramids, crop circles, UFOs, all of it. The average Joe severely underestimates what humans have, and are capable of accomplishing, which then leads them down the path of "aliens did it", even though there has never been any proof to support the claim. And the government is all too happy to perpetuate the alien myth, why wouldn't they be, it provides a great cover story.

yes, I caught that right after I posted. I don't think I am asking this right. Would stacking up the geometric shapes in various ways automatically produce ratios that can be translated into musical frequencies? So like would any arbitrary combination of Circles, equilateral triangles, etc.... produce a pitch? It seems like that would be so. I am referring to the post regarding the crop circles revealing 4 new Euclidian theorems. Is it really that exceptional? Maybe this has been answered, I haven't caught up with the entire thread yet.

Haha, I wanted to know how they use these 'magnetrons'?
I mean, a hand held microwave device that DOESN'T somehow cook you while cooking the plant near you...
Sounds a bit far fetched...thats all.

Show me a crop circle that is made by humans and stands up to the same standards ie., those shown. Those who believe humans made them all are so outdated - they'd all need to be mathematicians and very quick ones at that oh and judging by this thread they'd need to be very good historians too.
The man made circles are like kids drawings in kindergarden compared to the sophisticated diagrams that are so precise that they'd be difficult to do on paper for most people let alone a couple of village boys.

Skip to the end of the video 10:06, then go back to the beginning and watch. Pretty amazing. The Flower of Life has appeared in many times in History, now in crop circles.
This ties in with the human evolution.

From what i understand there are two distinct classes of crop circles....ones we make, and ones made by unseen unknown forces or intelligences.
The "real" crop circles are not created by breaking the stocks through crushing them under boards or laid out with string and giggles in the middle of the night.
They can be , and have been seen to be produced through the action of some kind of luminous orblike or possible plasma like blobs of light.
This has even been photographed i believe.
The stems of the real crop circles are heated from within till they swell and bend naturally as if steam bent.
There is a difference .

I looked through the pages of the thread but couldn't see anyone raising these points so I thought I would add my opinion. It is just my opinion, but it comes with a fair level of experience.
This image seems to be seriously photoshopped to me. In the image below, I have added red rectangles around just a few of the obvious places where image editing is apparent. As you can see the field "tracks" are often distorted in ways that are consistent with photoshop tools. To make the apparent "swirls" in the crop circle, they used a tool similar the "liquify" tool, which is why there is some "bending" in the straight rows. There are so many examples of this, blurring, other image artefacts and blatant cloning of sections (it appears that at least the 6 of the crop rows are duplicated to extend the overall length of the image), I couldn’t box them all without covering the image in red.
In the blue box, you can tell that essentially the levels of the image were just lightened to give the appearance of a crop circle, while the consistency of texture is the same from outside the crop circle to inside the crop circle.
I also added my own crop circle for the fun of it! THis all took me about 5 minutes, just to give an indication of how easy it is to fake things like this.
Again, just my opinion though... ;-j

As I said, this is just my opinion, but coming from years of experience of image editing and visualisation, it is clear that there is a lot f editing in this image. I just wanted to point that out.
I may be a real photo that had post-production on it, but in my professional opinion i doubt it.
Just presenting some facts that are plainly apparent in the image, from someone who edits images on a regular basis.
