I found a guide to making crop circles at Cropcirclemakers.com
so i thought id post just a few of
thier guidelines for people here at ATS to see and discuss as a lot of members have said in the past that they cant imagine how people make these
things and manage fool the general public / scientific community. This info just goes to prove just how much thought and effort is made in creating a
The Drop Off
After ensuring that you haven't been followed from the pub, drive to the field and unload the roller and stalk-stomper (the measuring tape can be
carried in a pocket or rucksack). Be careful to leave the equipment in a place easily recognisable in darkness - near a gate or large bush, for
instance. Then drive to a sensible place and park. It is worth remembering that an empty vehicle may arouse suspicion if it's left in a lay-by or farm
track, or lazily by the side of the field. Our own advice is to park in the nearest village close to other vehicles. Then, quietly and invisibly walk
back to the field.
T H E C I R C L E - Flow, and Multiple Layering
Establish the centre of your first circle about two metres in from the tram-line, walking in an angled, loping stride so as not to leave an
obvious path to the centre. Make the centre by turning on an axis of your standing foot whilst dragging the crop down with the other (a beautifully
nested centre - yet another proof of genuineness - can be fashioned with the hands. This will also increase the likelihood of positive results in any
subsequent micro-biological study). Alternatively; expertly laid centres can be fashioned by using a stalk-stomper or roller (individual circle-makers
tend to develop their own individual style of centre - acting as a subtle form of signature). As the perimeter widens, move away from the centre to
create a space about one metre across - you are now ready to form the outer perimeter. If you are working alone, place a barbeque stick in or near the
centre, attaching your tape through the loop before walking out to your chosen radius. Be sure to walk the perimeter in the same direction - clockwise
or anti-clockwise - as your centre, dragging one foot as you go, thereby leaving a narrow but visible trail. If the tape is kept taught you will
eventually return to your starting point. You are now ready to roll, or stomp the rest of the circle. N.B. At certain angles, a breeze may cause the
taught tape to vibrate and make a loud, mysterious, whooping noise. Do not be alarmed. This noise, under scientific analysis, has been identified as a
residual effect of the true circle maker.
A circle flattened from the inside out will produce a radial lay, made famous by Bower & Chorley, and worshipped by people like Colin Andrews, the
'World's Foremost Authority on Crop Circles and UFOs' - whilst the reverse will result in a near concentric, tangentental flow, "like water", as
described by lesser cerealogists. Both, naturally, are regarded as genuine, un-hoaxable effects, as is practically any consequential artefact of
construction. The wide latitude for genuineness given by expert researchers allows for a great freedom of expression. In conjunction with circles,
avenues, crescents, key shapes, web shapes, rings, and arcs, there are myriad ideas you can introduce to your formation - complexity will always prove
popular. But while it is the author's dream that the bread-belt be filled with a zen-like aesthetic, we concede that it is purely a matter of taste.
However, we do suggest that you apply some deftness to the joining of these elements. REMEMBER - Even if you later claim to have made your formation,
it will only be dismissed as 'fake' if it is initially suspected that you work for, or know anyone from, the media. Before leaving your completed
formation, always check that you have not left anything behind. Sweet wrappers, cigarette butts, empty beer cans, or string, whilst not necessarily
regarded as signs of human involvement, may create extra work for early-bird researchers.
1 - Choose location depending upon visibility. A field rising up from the road, or a natural amphitheatre in full view of the road, make perfect
2 - Dowse potential location to establish earth energies. If a formation is located on a powerful ley-line this will satisfy later tests for
genuineness, and aid in curative effects, healings, orgone accumulation, angelic visions, benign alien abduction experiences, and feelings of general
well-being. WARNING - If the formation is situated contra-directionally to the flow of energy, this may result in the opposite effects; headaches,
nausea, temporary limb-paralysis, aching joints, mental illness, deadly-orgone-radiation (DOR) exposure, demonic visions, negative abduction scenarios
(memory loss, implant scarring, sore or bleeding anii, navels, and genitals, etc), and general disillusionment. With no condonement by the authors,
this may be of interest to satanists.
3 - Plan design to incorporate earth energies. Some of you may decide to work from a diagram, while others may wish to rely upon spontaniety... this
is purely a matter of preference. Remember that a diagram may not be easily read in total darkness - it is important not to use a torch as this may be
spotted by nearby crop watchers.
4 - Once location and design have been decided, retire to a local pub and wait for darkness. If the location is in a well known circles-prone area you
may be able to pick up useful intelligence on the plans of the crop watchers (cerealogists). These cerealogists are often very public about their
intentions, freely giving information on their own view-points, hide-outs, equipment (whether or not they have access to infra-red image intensifiers,
CB radio operating channels, etc. They often even divulge where they are putting their own circles, which may prove useful. It is not advisable to
actually talk to these people as inwardly- spiralling arguments invariably develop which will eat into the time you have allotted to real
circle-making. This might lead to a smaller event, therefore defeating the object of your argument.
I found this next part quite interesting :
Before starting, a simple ritual should be performed. Whilst not obligatory, this ritual will assist in causing minimal damage to individual
stalks while the crop is being laid. Using a long, curved, razor-sharp blade, cut seven single stalks for every circle planned for the formation.
Place each one between thumb and forefinger and stroke until the stem starts to bend. When the stems are bent at a right angle about two inches from
their base, place each sheaf at the centre of each proposed circle. If this service is not performed, a greater ratio of breakage will occur.
Cerealogists who find a sheaf of sharply cut stems within the finished formation tend to automatically see this as a sign of genuineness.
It is now conceded, even by the luniest of cerealogists, that 'grapeshot' circles, or 'signatures' - small circles, usually about 1 metre across,
and separate from the main formation - could be regarded as of human manufacture. This type of official alert often precedes dismissal as a genuine
component. There are some circle makers, meanwhile, who swear by them - different tags for different groups. Discretion is advised, however, as
compulsively making grapeshot circles as you walk out of the field leaves a really naff trail to your exit.
A formation will be deemed genuine if:
1 - you are not caught making it.
2 - the pattern represents a shape which leading cerealogists could regard as of symbolic importance, and, therefore, useful on the proselyting
lecture circuit, e.g. mandalas, Atlantean script, etc.
Any particular formation might develop its own individual folklore if:
1 - it is made in a field which cerealogists later claim to have been watching.
2 - light phenomena is associated with it.
3 - audio phenomena is associated with it, especially in conjunction with 'd'.
4 - mysterious substances are found in it - particularly if these substances are subjected to scientific analysis and found to be, 'not of this
5 - a publicised prediction is circulated beforehand (this practice, however, may result in the pattern being repeated in a neighbouring, or the same,
field). n.b. if you do correctly predict a formation, or rash of formations, it is important, like all good mystics, to exude the public manner of an
enigmatic... this may bring offers of fee-earning consultation, or invitations to lecture, etc.
6 - see '2' above.
REMEMBER - The discovery of a formation within a 10 mile radius of any local Centre for Crop Circle Studies (CCCS) group will also ensure
I realise that this isnt going to convince any die hard believers and it might even encourage a few more people to go out and make fake circles but
that cant be helped. ATS is all about denying ignorance so i thought the info was worth posting.
These are just a few selected points from their guide and doesnt explain the entire process or all the tools they use ,theres plenty more info and
tips at the site (Source
Remeber this is a guide written by one single group. They are not representing every single crop circle makers group in the world so different groups
will have used different variations on these methods that might not exactly fit these points i have listed here. Also there is more info at the site i
have not posted that even speaks about leaving strange substances at the site for people to find including hospital waste.
A lot of people ask why dont more crop circle makers come forward if they are making them and i have to words two explain this criminal damage
Its the same reason the street artist Banksy doesnt own up to his work. Also a lot of these groups get a real kick out of fooling everyone. Dont
forget that some people make a lot of money selling books , videos and doing talks on how crop circles are made by UFO's / aliens and its not out of
the realms of imagination that they are out there making these things to bump up sales.
