Indonesia's first crop circle

Indonesia's first major crop circle was discovered in a rice field by a farmer on January 23, adding the Asian country to the growing list of nations to find the mysterious formations in its fields. According to the Fox news story, the formation resembles a "muladhara chakra -- one of the basic chakras in Tantric Hinduism." While local scientists attributed the crop formation to human pranksters, nearby residents had various theories, including a tornado and, of course, aliens in UFOs.

While the characteristics of some crop circles are enigmatic and worthy of paranormal investigation, I've never quite understood the connection to extraterrestrials. It doesn't make sense. What would be the aliens' possible motive for leaving a large diagram in a field of crops? A message? What message? No discernible message of any importance has ever been deciphered from one of these things. It seems that aliens could certainly find an easier, more direct and better understood form of communication. The same goes for the idea that they are messages "of warning" from the Earth itself: What's the message? If there is a message, we're not getting it.

Actually, there have been messages left and deciphered by us that were left by “aliens” in crop circles. A new crop circle in England depicts pi, an essential math formulation, accurately to ten decimal places in a huge crop circle near Barbury Castle, an Iron Age fort. Also in Chilbolton Radio Telescope in 2001 there was a crop circle that was a response to one of our crop circles we made. It gave us a map of their genome, a picture of themselves and various other bits of info within it.

These crop circles seem to appear the next morning. In a nightime crop field with no floodlights how are these intricate symbols created we do not know. Nobody has been caught in action. Maybe there should be webcams secretly hidden around lush crops. Unless the answer is an invisible one.

Mr. Wagner,

One may as well say that music conveys no message. Yet, you must recognize that humans are deeply affected by the shapes of sound.

The language of nature is geometric, not verbal. Your assumptions are limiting. Nothing of lasting value can be fully expressed in any human language.

The messages of genuine crop circles are but for those who “have eyes to see and ears to hear”. One must be sensitive to form, as one may be sensitive to music. This is not a superficial medium, and not only to be measured and verbally analysed. It is to be experienced, like the color blue.

A part of it, however, obvious to those who have waited for communication from star relations, is “We are here.”

The ethical star nations do not force themselves upon the minds of humanity. They offer an invitation to open the mind’s eye along with the heart. A time will come for open contact, when humanity has educated the heart and mind.

For now, both those who freely choose to be preoccupied with “business as usual” (organised predation) and all who exhibit kneejerk adherence to standard “explanations” (a programmed response) do necessarily miss subtle invitation, as well as the actual communication. This is appropriate.

Ivone, your reply makes a lot of sense when one thinks deeper. Th eproblem is at this moment in time, it was partly formed by a belief rather than logical. Indeed, if we have the logical answer, then we wouldn’t be writing like this.

The author of this article clearly has not done his homework. Many crop circles are an authentic phenomenon, made by a technology that is not known to earthlings. Many messages of complex mathematics as well as astronomy had be encoded in these circles, particularly the ones that have appeared since the early 1980′s in Southern Wiltshire, England. The internet is great but allows the uneducated to demonstrate their ignorance.

It is a form of remote communication but from umans for umans. Most of them are followed by somthin odd a few days after or before their appearance. Look the last one in Indonesia: a few days from the crop circle they had a very strong quake. There is something going on, the elite is doing something and they want to distract us or sincronize their efforts in different parts of earth.

It seems that these were indeed manmade, as a group of students have admitted to it.

They should have made videos of it. Then I would believe.

I have read that no human makers of crop circles have proved that they are able to make the kind of crop circles that appear so mysteriously in such a brief amount of time, that have such a high degree of perfection and complexity, with the plants laid so precisely and beautifully, and are shown to have changes on the molecular level. Some people may claim to have made this new crop circle in a rice patty Indonesia – if that’s true they should make another one of equal size and complexity, and in as brief an amount of time – to prove that they were able to do it.
