Crop Circles, Nazca Lines: A Perspective

Thanksgiving is a time to honour our blessings, to look to the future, and remember our past, but not to dwell on it. It is a gift to be able to live in the sacred moment of Now, holding a perspective of present and past; even future. For that it is sometimes useful to look to the stars.

Nobody wants to be bogged down by deadlines, traffic jams, daily pressures which business imposes on our lives, but they are a reality. The gift is not to allow those pressures to impinge on our conscious-ness ALL of the time: to set aside some moment, daily, for what’s going on INSIDE, not outside in our lives. The trick to maintaining a healthy mind within a body that’s built to withstand some stresses is simple: it’s called switching off.

Everyone needs to switch off, to become unglued, to take a Holiday. That’s why Thanksgiving is such a huge celebration in the American continent: the international home of Big Bizness. This time of gratitude covers every race, creed, religious sect and subgroup: everybody celebrates. A timeout that takes us away from the increasing world pressure to ‘take care of business’. It gives us an overview of life; if only for one weekend in the year.

With a feeling of joy for what we are grateful for in our lives comes a per-spective on how our lives have turned out; from where we started. We look at the last year and give thanks: for our home, our family and our friends. Sometimes we give thanks for a lot of years: and see how our past has become our present.

They say it’s not good to dwell in the past. However there are some lessons from the past that we, with the miracle of technology, may use. They teach us to hold an overview.

Yes. Crop circles, among others, point the way.

Over the last decade we’ve been treated to a deluge of them: now more than a mere curiosity: they are perhaps showing us how to ‘be’.

Using techniques as diverse as pictograms, mathematics, animal and nature symbolism and digital ‘language’, these crop glyphs have become increasingly sophisticated and, like our own society and consciousness, their influence is expanding.

Last summer alone brought eye-witness reports from unbiased observers who believe personally and irrevocably in their ‘power’ to convert. Visitors to crop circles have experienced a ‘transformation’, feeling of ‘oneness’, a change in conscious-ness, a sensation of love for their fellow beings. These human emotions are backed up by changes and fluctuations in on-the-ground readings monitored by digital and electronic equipment used to measure the electromagnetic flow.

Even for those of us not conversant in the language of mathematics, the evidence has already brought the scientific community on board. Carl Sagan, astrophysicist and author of ‘Cosmos’, said before he died in 1996 at the age of 62: ‘Mathematics is the Rosetta Stone of the Universe’. This interpretive Rosetta Stone is evident in enough crop circles to satisfy the most skeptic mathematician.

Gerald Hawkins, the great Cambridge Observatory scholar, astronomer and author of ‘Stonehenge Decoded’ and ‘Beyond Stonehenge’, wrote an amazing treatise on Euclidean Geometry in Crop Circles and their relationship to Diatonic Ratios – also shown in crop circle imagery. His primary interest before he died in 2003 was work on his archaeo-astronomical computer devised at Cambridge, Mass (in the days before computers were commonplace) to calculate the placements of stones within Stonehenge and other British stone circles and their alignment to rising and setting sun, moon and constellations. The fact that his interest was transferred in later life to discussing similarities in sacred geometry with crop circle designs is a huge statement of support for their precision and authenticity.

It is intriguing to note that a crop circle of perfect sacred geometric pyramidal proportion appeared in July 2009 in a field next to a defunct observatory (now converted to a windmill) built in 1632 by astronomer Sir Edward Peyto to house his simple telescope. Like the crop circle which appeared in a field next to the Chilbolton radio telescope in 2002, the message would appear to be saying, once again, look to the stars.

Take another form of Kornkreis symbolism: images depicting birds, insects: the dragonfly, the human butterfly, the honeybee and bumblebee; swallows: all symbolic of flying, reaching beyond ourselves into the stratosphere of consciousness, beyond our mortal coil: suggesting our need to connect with our higher selves, superconscious, looking perhaps to encourage Mankind to connect as one, as a collective conscioiusness; holy, whole.

In this respect the crop circle phenomenon is reminiscent of a cultural device used by ancient civilizations to instruct their people in a religious fervor and belief in their gods, which would gather them together and guide them through difficult times: in creating images of superbeings directing their lives, kings and emperors and rulers of all ancient empires were able to use mass belief to maintain harmony and rhythm in daily lives. The Egyptians’ pantheon is superb: gods and goddesses carved in stelae, tombs and great city walls were depicted as immortal effigies of the pharaohs themselves, the god-king of their people whose power was omnipotent. Assyrians did it. Greeks and Romans followed suit, with temples, statues, sculptural images and mural art of astonishing beauty.

Perhaps the Peruvian rulers and god-kings of the Andes ought to be placed in this category; for they, too, had a way of subjugating their people and using their labour to create beautiful, if taltalisingly obscure symbols: the Nazca Lines.

Stretching for hundreds of miles through the Altiplano Peruvian high desert, the lines form geoglyphs cleared in the land surface. Made by Nazca laborers, they follow riverbeds that flow from the Andes. This high desert terrain stretches for over 1400 miles along the Pacific coast and the Pampa Colorada, or Red Plain of deep red sandstone where Nazca art was created, runs 15 miles inland and for 37 miles alongside the Andes. Nazca workers cleared the surface of stones, revealing lines of lighter clay underneath. Because of its dry climate (humidity quotient almost zero), these imprints have remained in the landscape for the last millennium and a half.

Like their modern counterpart the crop circles, appearing regularly throughout recent summers in English fields, the Nazca lines show not only geometric and conceptual shapes, but also glyphs of animals and plants in stylized form. Like crop circles, the Nazca lines are most spectacular when viewed from the air.

Because of our programming as a society, taught for millennia to believe what we see in our three-dimensional world, it has taken us all of the last hundred years even to agree with Einstein that the possibility of a fourth dimension is conceivable. Only now are we beginning to realize that the suggestion, taught for centuries by esoteric spiritual disciplines, that we are part of an even-greater Whole of seven, nay, twelve, perhaps infinite dimensional realities, may have validity: that we may indeed be sending ourselves messages to trigger our soul memory that it is time to wake up and become the spiritual beings we were intended to be.

We Are The Ones We Have Been Waiting For. It has a ring to it.

It is tempting to conclude, therefore, that our own group consciousness, that ever-expanding nebulous concept which our linear-embedded society has until now refused to conceive as a genuine possibility, is sending us messages embedded in our beautiful planet earth. And each summer, not only are they getting more beautiful, more complex and more meaningful, but they are triggering in us a desire, like the mythical Phoenix, to rise from the ashes of our past and become, as they suggest, the star-children of our dreams: the ones we have been waiting for.

Looking to and from the stars: are we indeed beginning to see the stellar perspective?

  1. THANK YOU for your Thanksgiving Thoughts on CCs.
    These Crop Circles are such a wonderful mystery.

    I would certainly be thankful if you would please take a FURTHER look at this summer 09 crop circle images that were pressed into living standing wheat in a formation of five lines of forms over 1000 feet long at Alto Barnes in Wiltshire, England this summer June 21/22 solstice and a week later.

    http://www.cropcircleconnector.com/2009/milkhill3/milkhill2009c.html

    What is being strung and sung in these impressive forms of lines, circles, curves, boxes and meanders? Might this be coded information and/or communication and/or even message?
    Or just an grand artistic curiosity?

    Where and who can help with possible deciphering and translations of this cosmic harp/egg/head laying code? Can your offer a suggestion who might have an intelligent guess or clue to this “code”?

    Please take a careful look again at this formation from near Adams Grave in Wiltshire near the White Horse at Alton Barnes. I walked through this specific formation at five different times over a period of several weeks and have more detail photos.

    Do you think there is someone who can decipher this “Cosmic Harp/Egg/Head” formation from this 09 summer?

    This Alton Barnes formation was not a cartoon, but a massive piece of hard art work over 1000 feet long in bent wheat that actually existed for several weeks in the field and was well documented by numerous photos.

    Field research friends of mine from Norway were on the hill during the night watching for humans, but all they saw was one flash of light during the early morning hours.

    No doubt there will be more formations with untranslated information coming again next summer 2010. I would be honored and happy to guide and walk you or anyone on your staff through these crop circle formations in the English fields next mid July and August.

    Something landed last summer and no doubt will continue to appear each summer — no doubt about it, but what is it saying or singing? –what is the information in the formations.

      Thank you Prof. de Vierville for taking the time to explain so succinctly your experience in this summer’s Alton Barnes crop formation. Your opinion is valued and there is much information there which is tantalising in the extreme. Would that Profs Sagan and Hawkins were still around to help.

      I believe you may have hit on something, however subconsciously perceived: the matter of sound. There are musicians with a phenomenal grasp of harmonics who might be able to help. I believe the Milk Hill formation has code, but not like the ASCII binary of Chilbolton or, as has been suggested by others, glyphs understood by the Maya.

      I feel there is also a clue in the sextant/astrolabe crop circle formations.

      We shall have to consult our sources and compare notes on results, if you are willing. One particular musician is also an astrophysicist: he may be more helpful than we realize!

      Thank you for your excellent comments.
