It is the crop circle season again in the northern hemisphere, particularly in Britain where most of them appear. These enigmatic patterns intrigue many people, though the general public do not understand or take much notice of them, dumbed-down by the British tabloids who continually foster the "fakery" of crop circles.
Yet, for those who have visited and studied crop circles, all agree that no human hand could have created them. There is never any sign of wheat disturbed around a newly formed circle until people start to walk in to view them. The author has witnessed some circles with many 2" radiating straight lines through the wheat for long distances, proving that no human could have created these lines, without making obvious disturbances in the surrounding wheat. The precision and intricacy of many patterns would take weeks and months to duplicate; they are known to appear in seconds or minutes, fully formed.
Crop circles convey a non-linear language directly to the heart, inspiring awe and wonder - even if the conscious mind does not fully comprehend them. Individuals have experienced all sorts of phenomena within the circles, from profound healing or nausea, to electronics not working. Often circles appear on ancient magnetised sites where stone circles and other sacred places once existed.
