Apocalypse (Greek: ἀποκάλυψις apocálypsis, from ἀπό also καλύπτω meaning ‘un-covering’), translated from Greek, disclosure of knowledge, hidden from humanity in an era dominated by falsehood and misconception, i.e. lifting of the veil or revelation

As most of us already know, the Long Count Calendar of the Maya ended on December 21st, 2012. It signals the End of the Cycle of the Fifth Sun which began on 13 August 3114 BC.

The Maya chose to mark this event in their major cycle at a time when coincidentally the spiral arm of the Milky Way Galaxy comes into closest conjunction [including that of the planets, solar system and the Sun at winter solstice] with the Galactic Center/Dark Rift.*

The ancient Maya discovered a mathe-magical key that linked nearly every known astronomical cycle. With the number 260 and its component divisors (13 x 20, 5 x 52, etc.), they could interconnect all apparent time sequences of observable celestial cycles—solar, lunar, eclipse, Venus, Mars, Mercury, the cycle of precession. Their knowledge of the precession of the equinoxes has filtered into New Age consciousness as bringing round that cosmic date when the Sun and Earth entered the ‘Age of Aquarius’.

*The actual astronomical range for this annual ‘rendezvous with its ‘cosmic birth canal’ is more realistically 1960-2240, with closest range between from 1998-2016, but it has become popular to fix it around the close of 2012.

Separate from this now-famous calendar, the Mayan Sun-Venus Calendar happens to end on March 28th 2013. It marks the end of the current fifty-two-year Venus cycle that began on April 10th 1961, and more crucial, it marks the start of the new 5000-year cycle of the Sixth Sun.

Some see the notorious ‘Shift’ as one of consciousness. Others as a ‘night of terror’ [Don Alejandro, below] or not to be feared [Hunbatz Men, pictured left, and below]; a further shifting in the polar and magnetic compass points; or physical earth shifts in the form of tsunamis, earth tremors and volcanic or solar activity.

Still others more spiritually determined, like Ken Carey [Bird Tribes, Starseed: Third Millennium] see humanity reach out to fellow beings, winged, rooted, ocean-going or star-seeking, and bring the shift into the personal domain.

“This field of human consciousness will soon know itself for what it is: even as we realize that each of us is like an individual leaf on a tree, or an individual cell in a body. Even after this happens I expect that in order to minimize any disorientation this event will bring, the Star Maker will only gradually reveal its conscious Presence within us, slowly allowing humankind to awaken to the realization that people are not only One, but that we have a rôle as the Star Maker’s physical organ of consciousness—an organ similar to a brain—but more clearly understood in our new capacity as the guidance system for this particular planetary garden.”
Ken Carey

During Consciousness-raising workshops in the GalacticHuman TMI Timeline and Starline programs, a remote viewing on 2020 and 2012, brought up an event associated more appropriate to 2013 than 2012, on an early January/February event:

Starting 1/3/2013 to 2/13/2013 “No communications, internet and/or electricity cut off-isolated from ? – communications will be ‘different’.”
Maya 13-moon cycle;
1/3/2013 13.0.0.0.13
0:Ahau/12 220

2/13/2013 13.0.0.2.14
1:Imix/1 1 day(1)=Kin(1); power doubled day.

1/3/2013 comes 13 days after 12/21/2012 (13.0.0.0.0) – 13 an important cycle (13 months x 20 glyphs = 260-day calendar)
1/3/2013 Long Count is a ‘mirror’, with emphasis on 13: 13.0.0.0.13
2/13 is 40th day later; 39 day difference (39 = 3×13)
2/12 is 0-Ahau/13-Cosmic; Kin 260 = end of the cycle; 2/13 is Kin 1 = begin
12/12/2012 12.19.19.17.11 (-9 days/kins, 9 Underworlds)
12/21/2012 13.0.0.0.0 (0 day)
1/3/2013 13.0.0.0.13 (+13 days/kins, 13 Heavens)

Serpent of Light Beyond 2012
According to Drunvalo Melchizedek’s ‘School of Remembering’* the Serpent is on the move and its energy will culminate on a date in February or March 2013.

February 16th, 2013 is the 260th day of new Age [Maya], which completes the first Cycle of Creation (13 x 20 days). It is the seventh day of Tone Seven of the time-wave that started on the 24th December 2012.

2/16/2013 Long Count: 13.0.0.2.17
Near-Earth-Asteroid 2012 DA14 (discovered 2/13/2012) is forecast to come very close—within satellite orbit range—to the earth on 2/15/2013.

‘Beginning of a new cycle and a new world —where entire heavens will be opened up to humans — free to explore our natural environment of space, time and dimension beyond the Earth.’
Guatemalan Mayan prophecy cycle to 2/19/2013, transmitted by Drunvalo Melchizedek

2/19/2013 Long Count: 13.0.0.3.0
According to Drunvalo Melchizedek, from previously secret knowledge held by the modern Maya, in 1959, after the Lhasa uprising, when the Chinese caused the Dalai Lama to flee to India from Tibet, the kundalini of the Earth—its crown chakra seated in Mount Kailash in Tibet—shifted with him. This ‘serpent of light’ has continued to move through the earth’s electromagnetic system for sixty years and is gradually coming to a focus—elders on both American continents agree—in the Andean plateaux: final resting place, and subject of much discussion.

When that happened, it triggered a meeting on the North American continent of Elders from all areas of Mexico, Belize and Guatemala, and a grand meeting of all Mayan tribes, because they had foreknowledge that the Serpent of Light was going to move. Elders have met annually since then and other groups have joined in increasing awareness and world consciousness:

The crop circle following, in particular, has been graced with several seasons of serpentine motifs in the ripening grain—2012 producing some of the most miraculous—see previous Siderealview blogs, below.

The Phoenix Star Knowledge Conference held December 10-13, 2012 included Mayan daykeeper, Hunbatz Men’s deeply convincing shared knowledge on fearlessness and the sacred duties required of future humans.

Prophesies relating to the end of the Great Cycle have included information on the New Beginning. Other sources, research from Enoch scrolls through ‘lost’ Babylonian texts through ‘missing’ Biblical epistles, speak of knowledge of this time known to the Ancients [antediluvian implied] as one of joy. But unfortunately the old fear-inducing scenarios have, rightly or wrongly, continued into this new time.

Maya Elder Don Alejandro says: “On March 31, 2013 the sun will be hidden for a period of 60-70 hours and this is when we shall enter the period of the Fifth Sun.”
3/31/2013, 13-Ahau, 3 Wayeb has ‘strange stargate signs and portents’.

Elder Hunbatz Men comments on our imminent, ancient remembrance:

“According to the prophecies, in the year 2013 the first stage of higher understanding will begin. If we are willing to work with our subconscious, we will then be able to reclaim the information that has been impregnated in the deepest parts of our being. In this way, the ancient knowledge will rise again.”
Hunbatz Men, Daykeeper and Mayan Elder

Don Alejandro picks March 31st 2013 for 60-70 hours of darkness

Don Alejandro picks March 31st 2013 for 60-70 hours of darkness

Other possible interpretations include:
—something affecting communications/electronics—Coronal Mass Ejection or large solar flare—
—temporary or combined effect from asteroid 2012—DA14
—metaphysical/energetic event affecting some people—or a new intuitive?/level of communication
—an externalization of an internal personal shift

It is a milestone date.

According to Melchizedek, the Guatemalan Maya are convinced that their date for the ‘transition’-shift’s happening on February 19th, 2013 is correct. The Sun-Venus cycle closes March 28th*; Don Alejandro dreads March 31st. Hunbatz Men says we have nothing to fear. Some say the shift has passed.

And there are several crop circle-Mayan studies/theories, including those on the CropCircleConnector site to satisfy the hungriest Venusian-addict. Take your pick.
*Detailed Venus calendar calculations here.

To be sure, 2013 has waited behind the veil of 2012 for long enough. Now the serpent of light is squeezing out from below the dawn and, if we’re open to it, willing to give our intuitive consciousness the full rein of its supreme intelligence, along with the billion-year-old carbon-fuelled DNA in our cells—and with our right hemisphere—this serpent energy may trigger our solar-inspired cells to become more than the sum of our parts: perhaps even to fulfill the destiny our [Egyptian, Sumerian, Assyrian, Greek, Russian, Roman, dare I say Atlantean?] forefathers foretold: “to become as one with the gods”.

Will it be a happy Valentine’s Day? If immortality awaits, are we really, culturally, humanly, lovingly, intuitively, psychically ready?

Dimensional Shift: Take the 5D Elevator

August 28, 2011

Archaic hieroglyph inscribed on circumference of newest dimensional crop circle at Cherhill, Wiltshire

“Miracles start to happen when another unseen world intersects with our own.”
—C. S. Lewis, 1947

The Fabric of Space
Ever since Einstein, mathematicians, sacred geometers, astrophysicists and scientists of all disciplines have struggled to explain the fabric of space.

Lisi's Theory of Everything (ToE)--note similarity to Jubilee Plantation form

“The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.”
— Albert Einstein

One of the latest in a long line of contenders (including charismatic Nassim Haramein, whose theory of ‘Resonance’ is constantly expanding) is the E8 Group. Garrett Lisi‘s E8 ‘Theory of Everything’ (subatomic) strives to explain –on the back of Einstein’s relativity, and assuming gravity as the dominant force — how all things fit together. It is a nice idea. But many quantum physicists and mathematicians disagree. “…[E8]’s biggest flaw is probably its starting point, because gravity is not a fundamental force, but an emergent one, as postulated by Dutch theoretical physicist Erik Verlinde.” David Deutsch, author of The Fabric of Reality: towards a Theory of Everything (1998) and The Beginning of Infinity (2011) says ‘one of the most valuable, significant and useful attributes of human thought is its ability to reveal and explain the fabric of reality.’

Cherhill 5D cube --'penteract'-- at Jubilee Plantation: connections made by physicists to E8 theory; or is it Max Planck's 'Divine Matrix'?

Milo Wolff’s Wave Structure of Matter, describes how waves in quantum space form all the matter of the Universe. His simple, elegant explanation of how matter forms at a point/node, answers some of the basic questions in physics, e.g. WHY gravity exists. Previously physics taught that particles were the “stuff,” and the rest is empty space. It seems the opposite may be true. Space now looks like a multidimensional fabric with nodes where particles of reality form and reform where waves cross, as they move through this fabric. Wave patterns, vibration and sound play a huge role in the illusion we call matter.

Deutsch disagrees with Stephen Hawking that the human race is ‘typical’ in the Universe, merely ‘chemical scum’ on the surface of a ‘typical’ planet. He thinks we are an exceptional species, our knowledge accelerating at a phenomenal rate. He agrees with Nobel prizewinning physicist Richard Feynmann that the ‘Multiverse’ is our quantum medium and we sentient beings are the most important entities in it. His work in the field of quantum computers makes him an optimist. Like Terence McKenna, he believes, all (human) knowledge is without boundaries, constantly evolving. McKenna said in 2000 before he died that humanity is headed for a world made out of Mind:

‘Mind instead of “stuff”…a hologrammatic disk, part bio, part machine, part think tank, part Mind’
Terence McKenna


Deutsch, working in 2011 to create the ultimate quantum computer environment, is making McKenna’s prophecy a reality.

Other physicists, Quantum or otherwise, converse in terms of the Multiverse. Sabine Hossenfelder and Rob Bryanton, author of Imagining the Tenth Dimension say we have only scratched the surface. In this realm of multiple dimensions and parallel universes, gravity seems to have taken a back seat to a simpler field of energy where waves interlock and form ‘nodes’ of matter. Just like crop circles do!

Sabine (Bee) is, like fellow physicist Bryanton, besotted with additional dimensions. They are true disciples of Max Planck, known as the ‘father of quantum physics’. He believed all reality was contained within a Matrix, which he called divine because it displayed a field of energy which appears intelligent. Planck shocked contemporaries in 1947 by confirming what the Ancients believed — on all continents — that the Universe is being run by a Divine Being with our interests at heart. He also said ‘Mind is the Matrix of all Matter.’

“All matter (from the birth of stars, to human DNA and everything in between) originates and exists by virtue of a Force. We must assume behind this force a conscious, intelligent Matrix.” Max Planck, 1947

Gregg Braden, a former aerospace computer systems designer, transitioned into his life’s work of trying to understand this matrix. He sees this ‘container of the Universe’ as the bridge between our imagination and reality, as well as being the mirror in our world for what we believe: a reciprocal process. ‘To unleash the power of this matrix in our lives we must understand how it works and speak the language that it recognizes.’

Perhaps the Jubilee crop circle is saying just that: getting us to read the code; opening our minds to interpreting symbols other than words on a page.

So, if Space has the underlying predetermined form of the ‘golden decagon’ which the Jubilee Plantation crop circle portrays — with specific lines absent so that it looks like a 5D cube (penteract) — its internal structure seems based on the Golden Mean/Ratio, Phi (Greek letter uppercase Φ, lowercase φ, or written mathematically ϕ); that magical balance of beauty, harmony and form that gives us shivers to contemplate.

Just as previous crop circles have given us clues, little coincidences, double entendre allusions to inside knowledge, names, nearby features, and particularly sacred form and meaning, this season’s finale seems filled with meaning. It is simultaneously seen in the physics community as ToE (above), to sacred geometers it is a 5D hypercube, and a spider web. (Native American mother arachnid warns us to be mindful of the web we weave in our lives; to focus on our choices). The crop circle’s perimeter webbing is indeed masterful — a tapestry of careful precision, photo below. Looks as if we’re being given some good advice.

Once again ET/our human-Oversoul reminds us we are part of something divine and, even more exciting, communally about to transition into — the Fifth Dimension.

Carl Sagan, in describing a Tesseract (4D cube), carefully talked us through an understanding of seeing the fourth dimension as ‘another form of measure at right angles to the ones we are familiar with’ or, more simply, to look at its shadow. Many of last year’s (2010) crop circles presented hypercubes and allusions to the fourth dimension. Now we are being presented with a progression into the fifth.

How does our imagination picture a further dimension at right angles to time?

In the fields of Wiltshire, harvest is almost over. Only a few acres remain to be cut and stored. Another season has come and gone.

But our dimensional brothers from another time-space-reality have been sending us messages nonetheless. They continue contact with our subliminal consciousness so that, if we allow the communication to root, it will add another notch to that strand of human DNA that is consistently expanding, upgrading, enlightening us to understand a newer, all-encompassing reality — one we’ve never encountered before.

The crop circle at Jubilee Plantation may be the last of the season. It is ostensibly a simple decagon surrounded by woven grain and etched in the center with slim lines of apparent intricacy — only one footprint wide on the ground — and probably the most important crop circle which has been imprinted this year. Like last season’s finale, when seen from above *as with all designs inspired by our Oversoul [*see Nazca lines], it serves to click an unbidden trigger in our synapses and unleash our dimensional observer: the one who sees multiple cubes rising and descending in the elevator of our mind.

The Pentaract is, in animation, a constantly imploding and exploding hypercube extruding itself from its own cone of squares like a rectangular telescope. In shadow in the field, its 2D shape is merely a mass of thin lines. But this field imprint is a masterpiece of dimensionality that only our human consciousness [in its expanded version] could devise to send back to us through time/space and via the elevator of understanding which we croppies hope we project in our willingness to receive, before the season is out.

Deutsch, an innovator like his gurus, Richard Feynmann and quantum cosmologist Leonard Susskind, likes to simplify. The beauty of a formation (in the field or in mathematical formulae) betrays for him a simple truth. Susskind believes we are having an intelligent conversation with the Universe. Physicist Deutsch, an Oxford don, appears to be honing that into sharp focus, by bringing ecology, natural selection, physics, mathematics and evolution into the conversation via computer technology. He points out the shocking fact that the earth’s natural ecosystem is almost incapable now of supporting human beings, certainly in any numbers. We have created our own life-support system of food, energy, transport, shelter and communications. He is fond of using his own territory of Oxfordshire as an example. Take away the farms and modern infrastructure and, in the woods and downs, little of the vegetation that is left now is edible. He, like Stephen Hawking (but for different reasons) advocates upgrading our planetary exploration capability and getting ‘out there’. His Beginning of Infinity is a great treatise on Life, the Universe and Everything, a book for our time where the answer is not 42: it is infinity.

The Significance of Venus

Woven 'fabric' of Jubilee plantation, image Frank Laumen. The August 15th crop circle is a masterpiece of wordplay, timing, sacred geometry and cultural prompting. Its decagon (double pentagram) appeared on the day planet Venus (pentagonal orbit) reached superior conjunction

This season’s shapes have constantly encouraged us to leave our myopic cultural concerns and look to the heavens. Earlier in the season, crop designs focused on orbits of the solar system’s inner planets, cometary ‘intruders’, reminding us of knowledge known to our ancestors but apparently ‘lost’ to modern civilization. Few knew, for instance, that the day of the Jubilee plantation appearance was astronomically significant (particularly to ancient skywatchers) as the moment Venus reached its farthest elongation from Earth in direct line on the other side of the sun from us — known as superior conjunction — when all three bodies line up, but when Venus becomes ‘invisible’. As the ancient Babylonians described her, Ishtar/Venus the dual-phased (Sumerian double countenanced Inanna) morning star of war and wrath now enters the Underworld, where she transitions from being goddess of war in the Eastern sky and emerges 60 days later as evening star in the West: Ishtar/Aphrodite, goddess of love. What a great pity our modern prosaic preoccupations with money and status no longer allow us to look at love and war with that cosmic perspective.

‘When beggars die there are no comets seen
The heavens themselves blaze forth the death of princes’
Calphurnia, Julius Caesar II ii 30 Wm Shakespeare

Hurricane Irene making landfall on the East coast of the USA, August 28th, 2011

Much of the eastern United States is at present having to contemplate the power of the planet, in a frightening double dose of earthquake and hurricane. This electromagnetically-sealed planetary body is suddenly seen, not merely as the mothership that guides us through those remote reaches of interstellar space, but as herself a biosphere of living, moving, reacting interplay of elements: fire, water, air, earth. Suddenly what the Ancients believed takes on meaning few in formerly powerful Wall Street or choppy Chesapeake could have imagined.

Our place in the Universe is constantly changing and ancestral societies DID know more about this reality than we, shadow people of 21stC society, do. We wake up one morning and everything has changed. Power is for a moment seen, not in the symbolic dollar or in terrestrial exploitation to squeeze every last ounce of energy out of an exhausted source; but in a living, breathing rotating body in the heavens responding to electromagnetic pressures being thrust upon her.

To the Ancients (Maya, Sumerian, Babylonian, Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Chinese, Hindu, Aztec and Inca) Venus’s elongation was symbolic of (sacred) periodicity — an amazing calculable phenomenon which ties the two planets forever locked in celestial embrace as they orbit their parent Sun. There is no more potent symbolism seen in the heavens than the exact cyclical rhythm that Venus dances with Earth: Venus travels faster than Earth, orbiting the sun 2.6 times to Earth’s 1.6 orbits. This means that five Venus cycles of 548 days exactly equal eight Earth cycles of 365 days. Five Venus years equal eight Earth years. Exactly. The beauty of that synchronicity was not lost on formative societies. It was the stuff of which their gods were made. The Venus rotational cycle formed a perfect sacred pentagram. This is also contained in the Jubilee crop design.

Ninth Wave of Calendar of Consciousness for 2011: split into seven 'days' and six 'nights'. We entered the fifth 'night' August 18th

Currently the Long Count calendar of the Maya is gaining popularity, thanks to the willingness of Maya Elders to share sacred handed-down knowledge, to scholars who have gone before, like Ian Xel Lungold, José Argüelles, and to current teachers of the 5124-year calendar cycles like Carl Johan Calleman.

What is gradually surfacing — not through television or newspaper reportage, but through that McKenna/Deutsch miracle of quantum computing, the Internet — is that the Ancients knew a thing or two and we would be well-served to pay attention. The Thunderbolts Project, mentioned earlier in our Siderealview blog, a consortium of physicists, mythologists, astronomers, authors and plasma technicians, has now published intriguing proof that ancient mythology, cave and rock art and petroglyphs from Mesopotamia to Russia and Tibet, from North and South America to Northern Europe all described Earth’s volatile beginnings as a planet surrounded by other heavenly bodies — a little too close for comfort. That, before the Age of Reason and the vision of heavenly stability we see in our skies now — nine impeccable planets circling an orderly star — there was an Age of Chaos. And that these unruly planets gave their names to archaic deities: that the gods WERE planets; fiery dragons and thunderbolts were comets, the stuff of the stars.

Saturn/Kronos as Creator
Saturn appears regularly as the oldest god: before the Sun, Saturn ruled [Saturnia Regna = Golden Age].

Ancient belief systems from both Old World and New have often featured in our Siderealview. And, while we continue to extol the virtues of that bible of myth by Giorgio de Santillana and Herta von Dechend, Hamlet’s Mill (1969-2002), an ‘Essay investigating Origins of Human Knowledge & its Transmission through Myth’, with its huge databank of archaeoastronomical research on which world myths are founded, the Inca pantheon — the Inca celestial myth has similarities to all world cultural branches — seems to have escaped their notice.

The mythology and chronology of the Maya is currently in vogue and getting a lot of attention. But it helps to look at pre-Columbian belief generally — Inca peoples in particular — as the picture painted there is one of pure untainted primitivism: something lost in other cultures where transmission has been heavily edited, influenced or interpreted.

Roman naturalist Gaius Plinius Secundus (Pliny, AD23-79) wrote erudite work based on scientific observation:
“Heavenly fire is spit forth by the planet as crackling charcoal flies from a burning log.” He was speaking of ‘comet-Venus’ but he recorded interplanetary ‘thunderbolts’, in his time and in Roman history thrown by each of the three ‘upper planets’, Mars, Mercury and Saturn. He actually died during the eruption of Vesuvius, poor man.

Rome may have had its master observers whose documentation is beyond question, but such references are scanty in the Americas.

“The natives of this country say that in the beginning, before the world was created, there was one whom they called Viracocha. And he created the world dark and without the Sun, nor Moon, nor stars.”
Inca (preColumbian) creation myth

INCA EMPIRE: Quechua ‘TAWANTISUYU’
Tawantisuyu stretched from Ecuador in the north through the Andean kingdoms of Peru, west and south-central Bolivia, through northwest Argentina, Chile and southern Pacific coast; the European equivalent of a huge kingdom lying between the coast of Portugal and inland Caucasus.

The language of Quechua survives. It straddles this last millennium, offering insight into their elusive yet strong belief in heavenly deities, rather than –as seen in vestigial effigies dedicated by the Maya to their gods– a religion dominated by statues. The only exception in worship of a planetary pantheon was their use of gold to simulate LIGHT. The Maya, on the other hand, had a fully functional ‘alphabet’ of symbols inherent in their multi-functional Tzolkin calendar and an amazing history, Book of Chilam Balam of Chumayel which retold their history (and that of their ancestors, the Olmec) going back at least to 4200BC. Maya culture, while not totally continuous, has survived. The Inca belief system has not.

However, both cultures, along with all the oldest mythologies in the Old World, shared the belief that the original sky god (before the sun) was the equivalent of Greek Kronos (Father Time), Mesopotamian Shamash/Ninurta, Babylonian Sakkuth, Sumerian Anu, Etruscan Satres (from whom the Romans borrowed Saturnus) — the first planet/god who created order out of primeval chaos. This was Saturnia Regna, (trans. rule of Saturn), the ‘Golden Age’.

In the Chilam Balam, Saturn is the nameless one — known only as Oxlahun-ti-ku, (trans. the ‘Thirteen’, perhaps referring to his moons; Cuzcoan Viracocha) — one of two gods ruling the heavens. Venus was ‘born’ in 3147BC, when Longcount began. In the Inca creation legend, Viracocha is the Great God (Saturn, temple disk above), worshipped by the sun, moon and planets.

One last teaser: before we return to our preoccupation with culture, conformity and crisis. Where thunderbolts and lightning struck terror into the hearts of primitive peoples — not unlike the terror being felt in the eastern US states right now as Earth tears her hair and sheds her shackles — the power of light, plasma discharge, electricity and magnetic storm had a hold over our ancestors. They viewed the heavens as a place from where gods came to wield instruments of light not known on Earth. Similarly, light orbs (balls of light, ultrasonic/electric crackling) have been witnessed in association with crop circle formation.

So many eye-witness accounts now attest to the creation of authentic crop circles — sometimes literally in minutes — by means of hovering plasma balls of light, that their elusive nature was this year one of the serious discussions at the annual CircleChasers gathering July 27th at Alton Barnes. Perhaps the most genuine, enduring — and authenticated — footage capturing the orbs is that of Steve Alexander’s Milk Hill video (1990).

Thunderbolts, light orbs, gods in the sky. The seasonal finale seems also to signal symbolic change (N. hemisphere) from summer (Leo full moon August 13) to fall (Virgo new moon August 29) — always a deep psychological shift. It also marked Maya 5th ‘night'(of world chaos) August 18th-September 4th.

That elusive ‘signature’, shown top, next to the Jubilee crop circle harks back to several ‘dragon’ designs of earlier years. It may even be the meteorologist’s symbol for a ‘weather-feather’. But it surely connects us through age-old wisdom to ancient beasts of prophecy — dragon, serpent and crow. It now appears with intriguing regularity each season.

Jubilee plantation’s choice location may also signal reason for jubilation: transition to higher, more noble principles, unbelievably even entry into the fifth dimension.

Suspending our disbelief, we are capable of creating new miracles, events which are not part of commonplace experience. We are becoming a one-world consciousness. Together we are beginning to resonate as OneMind. The Elevator doors are open. What are we waiting for?

The Plasma Universe: our Electric Connection

January 24, 2011

Gods wielding Thunderbolts: not imaginary mythological tales but formative Earth's memory of her violent past

Plasma braids:
“Thunderbolt that steers the Universe”

Heraclitus, 5th Century B.C.

Our galaxy is not void.

For years we were taught traditional theory of our Universe as ‘space’, a vacuum, inert, orderly with few surprises. It was forever expanding outward from a point of primeval Big Bang, controlled and geared by gravity (the weakest celestial force), full of black holes, with anomalous behavior in comets, meteorites and exploding galaxies explained as the work of anti-matter, ‘dark’ matter or, as in nuclear physics, attributed to ‘unknown’ factors such as quarks, charm, CERN‘s conjectural Higgs-Boson particle or the existence of the ‘weak force’, anti-gravity or String Theory’s multiple dimensions. While physicists had trouble proving their theories (many of the ‘forces’ and particles were hypothetical and had theoreticians predicting ‘mass-less’ entities and the ‘graviton’) they are now swinging to a view of the operation of the Universe via another mode of Being:

As electrically-charged plasma.

Plasma is looked upon as the ‘fourth state of matter’, different from solid, liquid, gas. And as plasma is almost exclusively electromagnetic –a cluster of ionized particles– electrical theory is being unwrapped from the closet and given another airing.

NASA, JPL, CERN and the Los Alamos National Laboratory all give explanations for their switch from traditional space theory to a more generally accepted (and more familiar electromagnetically-driven) plasma physics, whose founding father, Swedish Nobel laureate Hannes Alfvén (1908-1995) coined the phrase ‘Plasma Universe’. Originally trained as an electrical power engineer, he researched and taught many years in the field. His plasma theories describe behavior of aurorae, Earth’s Van Allen radiation belts, effect of magnetic storms on Earth’s magnetic field, magnetic and electric fields in cosmic plasmas, the terrestrial magnetosphere and dynamics of plasmas within our galaxy.

Because of its unique behavior, (unlike solids, liquids, gas) plasma is seen as the dominant form of matter in the universe. It has been called the ‘fundamental state of matter.’

When a material is heated from solid to liquid to gas phase, and then even hotter, it starts to become ionized, i.e. one or more electrons of an atom become liberated. Plasma is essentially a collection of ionized particles and while in its simplest form it behaves according to basic electromagnetic laws, at its most complex it continues to astonish specialists in its ability to self-organize into cells with different electrical characteristics.

Plasma comes in many forms, all electromagnetically active

Plasmas are not routinely encountered on the Earth’s surface. Natural plasmas, however, do form lightning and aurora, with the cool, man-made version most commonly seen in fluorescent light bulbs. Solar corona and solar flares are good examples of hot plasma. Earth’s magnetosphere contains plasma generated by particles of solar wind interacting with Earth’s own electromagnetic field, liberating ions into the Ionosphere (upper atmosphere).

Aurora borealis/australis is the result of charged solar wind particles clashing with and becoming trapped within the Van Allen radiation belts, where they hit the ionosphere and fluoresce. Every planet with a magnetic field generates its own plasma, like that around Jupiter and its moon Io. Beyond the solar system, in interstellar space, ions and electrons proliferate everywhere.

Fire in the Sky
A plasma discharge (spontaneous flash of light) is familiar to students of electromagnetism. To our ancestors, however, who must have witnessed many such plasma discharges in the ancient skies and recorded these (frightening) occurrences, they were seen as battles of the gods, sky heroes and god-kings clashing with sky monsters, serpents, ‘smoke-stars’, fire-dragons which, against apparently insuperable odds, they succeeded in overcoming.

As comets enter the inner solar system, a plasma tail often develops (in addition to a non-charged tail of dust), like Shoemaker-Levy 9 (1993-4) and Hale-Bopp (1995, 1997). NASA’s most famous comet-rendezvous program, Deep Impact, confirmed cometary composition (‘dirty snowball’ plus ionized particle tails) in its hit on comet Tempel 1 in July 2005 and flyby of comet Hartley 2 November last year.

Several ancient cultures name fearful comets as ‘smoking stars’ and lightning, with its thunderbolt — often in the shape of axe, jagged staff or flashing sword — was seen as the divine weapon of gods and king-heroes wielded against ‘fiery dragons’ curled inside the earth (volcanoes?) which threatened the populace.

Castor and Pollux —Alpha and Beta Geminorum, the ‘heavenly’ or ‘thunder’ twins — were revered by the Aztec as the first ‘fire sticks’, from which Mankind learned to drill fire. And, interestingly, when the Peruvian Indians became Christian, they chose to call one of those twins Santiago because their missionaries taught them that Christ named James (Santiago) and John the ‘Sons of Thunder’.

In Mesopotamia 4,500 years earlier (4000 BC), Gemini* served as pointers to mark the beginning of the new year by setting with the first new moon of spring, just as Egyptian astronomy’s pointer Dog star Sirius, Sothis signaled annual flooding of the Nile. Classical Greece called them the Dioscuri, the ‘thunder boys’, sons of Zeus.

In the opinion of seminal scholar of world mythology Prof. J. Rendel Harris:

‘Great commentators of the Christian church had missed the meaning. In demythologizing the Bible, they threw out vast sections of primitive culture’s connection to the stars.’ (Boanerges 1913)

Authors Giorgio de Santillana and Hertha von Dechend of (IMHO) one of the greatest compilations of world mythology, (Hamlet’s Mill 1969, 1977, 2002) call the Bible ‘that most unscientific of records.’

Viewing cosmology in an electromagnetic context, the Mill of the title begins to make sudden sense of millennia of myth. Hamlet is a translation of Finnish/Norse/Icelandic proto-hero Amlodhi whose staff (Yggdrasil, ‘world tree’) spun the mill of the maelstrom, the whirlpool of the cosmos, the vortex, axis mundi — the Earth’s magnetic polar shaft. The Finnish quern/mill Sampo (vault of heaven, from Sanskrit skambha, pillar, pole, axis) ground out Mankind’s deep origins: it was this mill which created ocean, earth, Man. In good times it ground out ‘peace and plenty’, in bad times, salt. And, according to the Finns whose mythology is alive in recitation, it grinds still. It lingers in Vedic tradition in a hymn —Atharva Veda— to the world pillar (skambha):

A great monster in the midst of creation strode in penance on the back of the sea. In it are set what gods there are, like branches of a tree roundabout the trunk. AV 10.7.38

From such fragments of antiquity embedded in folk memory indicating a preoccupation with earth’s magnetic axis, it is tempting to believe that a polar shift, such as predicted by some for our ‘End Times’, may have occurred at least once before.

There seem to have been other cosmic cataclysmic occurrences.

Heliospheric current generates its own electromagnetic field

In an electromagnetic context within interstellar space, plasma spontaneously generates filaments which, like magnetic poles, attract each other at long distances and repel each other at short range. These filaments often braid themselves into ‘ropes’ that act like power transmission lines through space, with virtually unlimited scope in the distances and speeds they can travel.

Following precise magnetic field lines, these braids and ropes are known as Birkeland currents, after Norwegian explorer and physicist Kristian Birkeland who predicted them in 1903 after years of study of aurora in the Arctic.

Space plasma moving through a magnetic field generates its own electric current, and conducts electricity better than metals. Professor Emeritus of the Swedish Alfvén Laboratory, Carl-Gunne Fälthammar wrote (1986):

“A reason why Birkeland currents are particularly interesting is that, in the plasma forced to carry them, they cause a number of physical processes to occur (waves, instabilities, fine structure formation). These in turn lead to consequences such as accelerated charged particles, both positive and negative, and element separation (like preferential ejection of oxygen ions). Both classes of phenomena should be of general astrophysical interest far beyond that of understanding the space environment of our own Earth.”

In the medium of space, strong radial magnetic fields can make a plasma pinch like the hourglass-shaped Ant nebula, left, produce characteristic filaments like the plasma ball (top), and particle beams, as in its dense plasma center.

Filaments leave a magnetic field signature that is recognizable in the observable universe. Astronomers have been aware of these electromagnetic fields, but have historically paid them little attention.

At a most basic level, magnetic fields are produced only by electricity. So with new eyes we observe our Universe as electrically charged, electrically based and electrically-operated.

If stories transmitted through myth in all ancient cultures are taken as genuine records of visual phenomena –plasma bursts in the heavens– we begin to see formative earth peoples experiencing life on a volatile planet among cataclysmic prehistoric events happening in their skies. Our recent past, by comparison, has been a peaceful one. We can imagine how such events must have instilled fear, but faith and belief that their leaders (god-kings in ancient Egypt, China, Babylon) could and did overcome such monsters is not in our makeup. By ignoring the heavens, we have become complacent: we are no longer skywatchers. Because our history relates few cosmic incidents, we are lulled into ignoring our unique connection to our star, its orbiting companions, the Milky Way galaxy which drives us and the great space of infinity beyond.

Yet this is a running theme through all primitive earth culture, myth and art. And while science is beginning to access the bigger picture, we may be seeing a greater whole just in time: as the predicted solar maximum (increased sunspot activity, below) has the potential to return us to such tempestuous celestial activity as our ancestors experienced. Fire in our skies… perhaps eliciting earth’s (volcanic) response…

Astronomers and astrophysicists are beginning to accept that every energetic object in the universe has a plasma associated with it. Plasmas are detected by trace electromagnetic radiation (light, x-rays, radio waves), or in some cases, by the interaction of their ions and electrons with other objects.

Scientists think solar wind has been turned sideways by pressure from interstellar wind from distant stars

Distilling plasma theory down to its simplest form, and with great leaps in astronomical technology (space vehicles like Cassini and Voyager, telescopes like Hubble and SOHO), we can view and photograph from earth beautiful plasma nebulae which, excited by light from nearby stars, display precisely the same formations and explosive patterns seen in electromagnetism produced in the laboratory. It is also synchronous that Voyager is only now hurtling toward interstellar space approximately 10.8 billion miles (17.4 billion kilometers) from the sun on the outer edge of the solar system. Voyager 1 has crossed into an area of deep space where the velocity of hot ionized gas, (plasma) emanating directly outward from the sun as solar wind has slowed to zero.

Voyager 2 confirmed the existence of Van Allen radiation belts surrounding Uranus and Neptune.

As with Earth, the outer planets are affected by solar storms, but Earth’s proximity to her star (93 million miles, 1AU) makes her more susceptible.

Van Allen radiation belts surround Earth's magnetosphere

Energetic particle fluxes (radiation) can increase and decrease dramatically as a consequence of geomagnetic storms, themselves triggered by magnetic field and plasma disturbances produced by the Sun. We moved out of an unusually extended solar minimum last year. It may be in our interest to be (cautiously) more aware of the possibility of increasing solar disturbances during this next eleven-year cycle which will crown at solar maximum, thought to occur 2012.

While solar disruption on the scale of 1859’s Carrington Event may not happen, with our present dependence on electronic media for almost all human activity, we would be wise to have backup systems available, should such a CME-derived blackout occur.

Nobody in living memory knows what to do should a pole reversal occur. Angelic assistance is preferable.

Westbury crop circle July 2010 'Van Allen radiation belts'?

As we know (or rather, as some of us on this weblog community are following), 2009/2010 crop circle seasons were significant in their display of designs and consciousness-triggers alerting us to astrophysical phenomena and Earth’s fragility in its electromagnetic cocoon. Solar flares, plasma ejections (coronal mass ejections, CMEs), sunspot activity have all featured in Wiltshire wheatfields and are on the increase –see blog entries February through October 2010— alongside dimensional and spiritual instruction to prepare us for what may be around the corner.

Earth’s Mythological Past

Meantime, interdisciplinary researchers have not been idle. Given such a wealth of new information from astronomers, mythologists (following the trail begun by Hamlet’s Mill authors) have been working alongside scientists to make sense of thousands of years of transmitted lore, art, ancestral wisdom and belief which attest to hugely violent episodes in our planet’s past related to the heavens. Mythological and cultural archetypes worldwide share language, symbols and a timeframe which suggest a less-than-tranquil formative period in Earth’s evolution than the one traditionally held by astronomers.


Under the umbrella of the Thunderbolts Project of Portland, OR, scientists, authors, mythologists and historians led by Wallace Thornhill, David Talbott and electrical engineer Prof. Donald E. Scott, are cooperating with plasma physicist Dr. Anthony Peratt to interpret petroglyph symbolism used by almost every ancient civilization to depict mythological heroes and events. Peratt has for 30 years run a laboratory using computer-generated electrical activity to predict plasma bursts in celestial forms. Together they are finding remarkable resonance between plasma forms in the lab, those produced in the cosmos, and the rock art of ancient man who drew what he saw in the sky.

On a spiritual and cosmic level, an ‘electric Universe’ — via our planetary umbilical cord to our star; its energetic tie to Galactic Center and through it the galaxy’s electromagnetic relationship with all other galaxies and the most distant stars — can be viewed as a purposeful whole, held together by plasma ropes, braids of light and power transmission lines which do indeed transmit information.

We are only just learning the language of the stars.

*According to pre-Hellenic myth, the Age of Gemini (approx 6000 BC) was considered the ‘Golden Age’, Saturnia regna when Saturn/Kronos ruled. Following the Precession of the Equinoxes, each celestial Age lasts around 2200 years. More detail on successive ages here. In Mongolian myth the Age of Gemini signaled a time when ‘heaven and earth separated’ and fire was born. In other words, before the ecliptic and celestial equator fell apart (and the equinoxes started to precess), there was no fire. It was ‘given by heaven’ in the Golden Age of the Twins. 8000 years on, we entered the Age of Aquarius on February 14, 2009.

Learning to use the Hyperdrive

July 28, 2010

On the Severn: July 18th Woolaston design of merging particle resonance speaks to the third eye

It isn’t easy — you know, like falling off a log — this new learning curve, but it is helping us to remember who we are. The Intelligence of our higher selves – the essence of the Universe which is willing us on through pictures in the corn, daily synchronicities, new people coming into our lives. It wants us to make this leap. This Change.

Nobody said it would be easy. But hey, it’s already worth the effort. There are several new sources encouraging us to think like spiritual beings in human bodies. Instead of — traditionally — the other way around. Since spring we’ve been treated to some revolutionary new thinking. Inkeeping with the concept that the Calendar of the Maya tells us of our speeding-up as time coalesces, groundbreaking ideas are coming through thick and fast to help us learn new mechanisms: teaching us how to work this quantum hyperdrive.

While branded a 'fake', this recent crop circle at Milk Hill nevertheless inspired human bonding

At one end of the spectrum of wayshowers is Dan Winter with his exquisite explanation of how ‘everything is fractal‘ and we better get with the program (of ‘right living’) soon, if we want to survive. At the other, Kiesha Crowther, ‘Little Grandmother’, is less urgent but nonetheless firm that 2010 is the year we’re supposed to ‘get it’: it’s time now for us to tune into Nature and remember more heart-resonant ways of being.

How a Torus looks in 2D

2010 is the year, according to the old grandfathers of indigenous American tribes, we’re supposed to ‘get it’. This summer, whether we like it or not, whether we’re ready of not, here it comes.

Everything an Indian does is in a circle, and that is because
the power of the world always works in circles, and
everything tries to be round.
Black Elk (1863 -1950)

It is perhaps this simple feeling of appreciating the earth and her bounty — of remembering how precious is our ancient land — that the crop circle phenomenon is increasingly kindling in our human breast. But there’s a lot more.

Bishopstone, Bucks: centre of the circle, July 21 2010

Last week, following a series of striking multi-dimensional optical designs — culminating in the Fosbury ‘hypercube’ — there was a brief hiatus in crop circle creation, while we gathered our wits, collectively shared ideas and inspiration and quite literally drew breath. The cubes featured in last week’s blog were too stunning, too beyond our normal vision not to be taken seriously. And they provoked much thoughtful discussion. Yes, a couple of simple circles hit the fields — in Buckinghamshire and Gloucestershire, the ‘home counties’ of England, approximately where the world expects the phenomenon to occur. But there were some big surprises. North, West and South Yorkshire aren’t usual haunts for crop designs. Yet, this year, there they were: July fields decked with grandeur at Castle Hill Huddersfield, Sutton Bank, Brighouse West Yorkshire and Westworth Castle South Yorkshire.

It’s possible that CC-consciousness is preparing itself to use more northerly fields for the rest of the season; England’s been rather hot, you see. The northern world is going through a climate hike and the CCs may have to find alternate accommodation for the rest of the summer, rather than accustomed locations in Wiltshire and the home counties.

There they’ve already started the harvest.

Getting combine harvesters out of their sheds in mid-July is early. It’s even quite rare. Not a single CC appearance at Avebury* yet this year and they’re already harvesting the crops.

Oooo, croppiedom sighs; where to next? What will the light source utilize?

It’s not as if England has been inundated with crop designs in July, (though Germany and Holland received four each within the same time period). They’ve certainly kept us on our tiptoes waiting. So it’s interesting that three days after a new circle in Gloucestershire (illustration top), the sacred landscape blessed us with another discovery — not croppiewise, but a reminder of how important our sacred heritage is.

A neolithic wooden posted henge was discovered off the A344, within half a mile (3000 feet) of Stonehenge. The discovery came within days of a similar discovery in an ongoing archaeoastronomical project by a team from Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio working on an almost identical woodhenge found at Moorhead, near Cincinnati. Both wooden circles appear intentionally aligned to the exact position of solstitial sunrise on the morning of June 21st.

The woodhenge at Stonehenge and the Moorhead circle have identical ‘openings’ where the rising sun could be seen to shine through a manmade gateway into the centre of the circle of wooden posts. At Stonehenge itself, dawn on June 21st is celebrated as the sun appears to rise over Stonehenge’s heelstone to shine through successive concentric ringed stone ‘doorways’ into the central altar stone. It penetrates Welsh bluestones, native trilithons and a carefully-arranged Sarcen stone circle to find this central space. So, it seems, did builders of woodhenges wish to see their manmade doorways usher in the solstitial sun. There are several woodhenges in Britain, not just in Wiltshire — at opposite ends of the country, in fact — one between Lands End and the Isles of Scilly, another in the waters off Norfolk and a third in the waters off Rattray Head, Aberdeenshire, to name but a few. Earlier researchers thought they were built as precursors to stone circles — testing the waters, if you like — but this new discovery is extremely detailed, showing two ‘celestial entrances’, an indicator of our ancestors’ supreme astronomical knowledge. So it’s back to the drawing board for the prehistorians.

Nevertheless, for 2010 Man watching such appearances as if on cue, our ancestral past again got our attention. The new woodhenge lies on a direct line between Stonehenge and Warminster, in the thick of well-known electromagnetic energy lines and crop circle ‘heaven’. It is worth remembering that the Wallbury serpent formation of June 12th this year was laid so that the serpent’s head directly faced June solstice sunrise.

The public began to see Wiltshire — and our sacred landscape — with new eyes. The national news even picked up the story and offered us a kindly look into our ancestral heritage, to a time when marking the land with pointers towards the sun and moon, distilling what was happening in the heavens around us, was commonplace, sacred, necessary. This little neolithic happening filled the gap for us in a week lacking in other significant crop circle news.

Then, with a sigh of relief, a new crop circle was greeted on July 25th at Wiltshire’s prehistoric Roundway.

Fourth dimensional sphere/Torus with interlocking Greek key/Maya pattern at Roundway, Wiltshire July 25th

Following on my last blog on consciousness (& CCs), I was blessed with some illuminating and thought-provoking commentary (thanks, guys). Because of hyperdimensional CCs, we humans broke through some new dimensions ourselves and we jointly felt the next progression for a crop design might be the circle. That is, if our minds had already accepted the move triangle > pyramid > tetrahedron and we have been shown the square > cube > tesseract, then we should be able to visualize circle > sphere > torus. I would like to quote New Zealander Fitzy, as his allegory for the Torus is erudite:

Stanford Torus, a 1970s' view of the 21st century

We could see this as an intact form, differences in texture, colour, and area would all be obvious to us and they would blend into each other in a natural way. A Human would be a mixture of internal and external surfaces, alive and whole, and quite unlike how we see ourselves. Inside and Outside may have no significant meaning there.

Then on July 26th, an imprint appeared in East Field, Alton Barnes which had decipherers all clamoring to translate its ‘Hebraic’ script. It is reminiscent of an August 1991 script which appeared in the neighboring field at Alton Barnes (Milk Hill farm). It, too, had crop circle experts worldwide pooling their linguistic resources. At the time, Gerald Hawkins was alive and, as a skilled mathematician and logician with a head for numbers and letters, he deciphered the Milk Hill script as saying something like ‘oppose deceit’. If this new message refers to the present design at neighbouring Milk Hill, which appeared one day earlier (near the location of the 1991 design) and has been denounced as being ‘tampered with’, one awaits further translation with bated breath.

East Field, Alton Barnes July 26th. Compare this 'Hebraic' inscription with the August 1991 Milk Hill script

Hawkins used no specific human language, but as a mathematician, analyst and astronomer, accustomed to decoding obscure messages (he was, after all, original ‘decoder’ of Stonehenge — Stonehenge Decoded Doubleday, 1965) — he quickly noted repeat letters and, while his result was a Latin translation, it made sense. Others also translated the script with varying degrees of success. No confirmation has ever come through from ET on who was right. In addition to an elusive script, the 2010 East Field design incorporates what looks like a star map to a region of the heavens called the Tarantula nebula, 180,000 light years away in the Greater Magellanic Cloud. The star cluster is framed within a double-bladed axe in the formation’s centre. The Tarantula nebula — in constellation Dorado — also shines from a background of stardust clustered in this ancient shape: the double-bladed axe — ancient Assyrian Labrys, from which the Greek borrowed the word labyrinth — was one of Man’s oldest sacred tools.

Torus or inside-out tennis ball: Westbury design similar to its fellow of the previous day at Alton Barnes

Significantly the East Field inscription and axe blade is set within a torus — or a rendition of a splayed circle — which is comparable with another design that appeared one day later, July 27th, at Beggar’s Knoll, Westbury. This time there is no inscription, no axehead, but the torus appears to show several layers of circular perception or a dimension within a dimension.

Of interest to those of us following this progression, and because we’ve had much open discussion with ideas flowing on the most optical-illusory designs and those displaying ‘other’ dimensions, it calls to mind Bradley York Bartholomew‘s 2005 thoughts on Robert Boerman who, like Hawkins, decoded the 1991 script. Bartholomew quotes Boerman as giving meaning to another crop design — a double-helix, also at East Field, Alton Barnes in 1996 — which said essentially ‘there is divine intelligence within our DNA and that Intelligence is the Creator of Life’. +Bartholomew expanded on Boerman’s work and went as far as to say that the (divine) electomagnetic force within DNA connects to the electromagnetic force of the Earth and beyond. So that, in his words:

‘It is the force in the DNA that has put the message directly into the mind of the person attempting to interpret the crop circle. Whatever the message may be, there has been direct communication between the Circlemaker and the observer, because the same force that has created the circle can determine how it is interpreted. The Circlemaker is the networked intelligence that is in the DNA of us all.’

In addition, during discussion and commentary in last week’s blog on what we might ‘suggest’ to the circlemakers as a progression we wanted them to produce, Fitzy suggested the Torus and I said it was reminiscent of an incident in Lifetide (1979) by Lyall Watson where he witnessed a little five-year old Polynesian girl turn a tennis ball inside out with her mind, simply because she believed she could.

Judging by the ‘torus’/inside-out tennis ball appearances this week at East Field, Alton Barnes and at Beggar’s Knoll, Westbury, our DNA has certainly been communicating!

Our hyperdrive may be taking baby steps, but we’re getting there.

Tarantula nebula in southern constellation Dorado

If the circlemakers are showing us where they come from, we’ll certainly need our hyperdrive to reach them. The southern constellation Dorado is 180,000 light years distant.

East Field #1 star cluster on double axehead: Minoan & Assyrian 'labrys' double-axe symbolized power in the ancient world

Despite a flurry of bogus crop formations (East Field #2, July 29th, has been ‘tampered with’ but still shows authentic elements), none of us can deny that we are being shown a sequence, our braincells are being given a genuine shakedown and we are being encouraged to inject knowledge of our most ancient traditions (labrys was a female symbol of power in Minoan Crete and Turkish Anatolia 2000BC) into our present human consciousness, triggered by jolts from the future (symbols in the corn). If we lay aside human conflict, rivalry, ego, our minds are capable of much more — of reaching into other dimensions. They, it seems, are reaching out from those dimensions to us. It would be churlish, if not childish, of us not to accept their helping hand.

Postscriptum #1: On July 30th two crop designs of multi-dimensional communication appeared on either side of the M4 motorway at Wickham, Berkshire. On first glance they are reflections of each other, mirror images of a face (likened by some to Christ), but both use the format of the ancient oriental Abacus or counting board (number) to display what may turn out to be another ASCII code (numbers > letters) message, like the Wilton Windmill earlier in the season. Musical notation cannot be ruled out either because, like Hawkins’ sacred geometry (ancient Egypt’s ‘frozen music‘), they do look rather like guitar tabs for a 16-string instrument (!) or notes overlaid on two octaves. However we manage to interpret the code, as a complex multiple communiqué it will have our worldly braincells churning for the next few days at least!

p.p.s #2. +Bartholomew had a great deal more to say on ‘white powder gold’, a pure silicon-hydrogen compound found deposited in some crop circles, where ball lightning hits, in the resin of trees felled during the Tunguska Event in Russia in 1908 and where anomalous balls of light have been present. Time will tell whether white powder gold will become our next test substance for authenticity in crop circles. More intriguing, however, is the fact that Bartholomew says when ingested, white powder gold acts as a superconductor with a frequency tuned to the resonance of our DNA. It is capable of healing and has life-enhancing capabilities. That is, it can produce high levels of increased ‘joy’ or a permanent state of bliss.

More fodder for another blog!

*The Avebury-Trusloe appearance at Windmill Hill is being branded as fake (man-made) and witnesses to East Field #2 saw ‘plankers’, but also ‘balls of light’. Jury still out on that one.

All the Cs: Crop Circles, Comets, eClipses

June 13, 2010

Comet McNaught presently moving away from the Andromeda Spiral Galaxy, NGC-891, a near-twin of our own Milky Way galaxy

Throughout history the appearance of comets was seen in the mind of ancient Man as a sign of great change; a bad omen, sometimes heavenly intervention. Usually a bright comet was viewed as a ‘harbinger of doom’, a ‘messenger bringing bad luck’, or ‘death to tyrants and their evil’. But it was also seen – in the light of change – as a portent of unexpected gifts, a messenger from the gods, a shift in observation, in human awareness, a ‘quickening’. As signs in the heavens, comets were both feared and venerated.

The Romans recorded that a fiery comet was blamed for excess bloodshed in battle between Pompey and Julius Caesar in the days of the triumvirate. Shortly afterwards, another marked the Ides of March and Caesar’s assassination. Halley’s Comet was thought to have brought the Black Death in Europe. In the Andes, the Inca record a comet as foreshadowing the arrival of Francisco Pizarro. His armies conquered them and committed acts of brutality literally days after the comet disappeared.

Recent research suggests the Star of Bethlehem was either the cosmological conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in 7BC; or Halley’s comet (or a similar periodic comet)’s appearance in mid-April 5BC.

7000-year old Great Gallery 'Ghost Panel', Horseshoe Canyon Canyonlands National Park, Utah with Milky Way Galaxy backdrop

In North America indigenous Americans saw them as communication from Grandfather Great Spirit; their sudden bright appearance and disappearance marking the descent of special shaman or spirit messengers who joined their number on Earth.

The Chinese made a study of comets for centuries before written records were begun by Western society, but thought of comets as ‘vile stars’ or ‘long-tailed pheasants’ and yet they mapped and recorded their appearance and passage through the heavens.

In ancient cultures astronomy and astrology were inextricably linked – they were both sciences. And what went on in the heavens affected the lives of mere mortals on Earth.

Last week Jupiter and Uranus joined together (in astrological conjunction) in 0ºAries, the cusp degree of the fire sign of action, movement and drive. They are headed for a great opposition, three days after solstice, when a celestial Grand Cross will stand in Earth’s astrological chart.

In western astrology, Jupiter signifies growth and expansion and is considered fortunate, influencing belief, philosophy and social justice. Uranus implies change and excitement. It is eccentric and influences revolution, invention, and technology, such as spacecraft and the internet. Put these two planets together and you can expect fireworks: the change and excitement of Uranus will be amplified by the expansiveness of Jupiter. Growth and the philosophy of endless capacity (Jupiter) are subject to Uranian change with unexpected twists and turns.

Windmill Hill 6th August 2009, a month before comet C/2009 R1 was discovered

Uranus also breeds awareness that comes from a rapid awakening in our (Jovian) belief and faith. If you put the two together, and right now they are neck and neck, the biblical essence called ‘Quickening’ arises in humanity.

There have been pointers.

We’ve been given lots of ‘wayshowers’ by the ‘signs in the fields’.

Swallow, symbol of 'quickening', leading comet with coded tail, Alton Priors, June 2009

Last summer, the last few crop circles which graced the late harvest fields of Wiltshire and Oxfordshire included a stunning swallow with what might now be seen as a ‘comet tail’; it appeared in wheat in the South Field at Alton Priors on June 27th. On August 6th, 2009 another wheat crop received the imprint of a comet ‘panel’ of celestial objects breaching the solar wind or sun’s magnetosphere. This crop circle appeared at Windmill Hill, Wiltshire one month before Comet McNaught was discovered heading our way from the Oort Cloud.

Last crop circle of the 2009 season links to one of 2010's first designs

And the very last crop formation of last season appeared on August 29th at Waylands Smithy, Oxon in maize (corn): a spiral suggesting both comet and orbit.

So, it is interesting to see comets manifesting in one of the first designs of the 2010 season: at Stony Littleton near Bath in Somerset a wonderful double spiral appeared in a field of beans, in the forecourt of a 5000-year old neolithic chambered tomb, which might suggest two comets orbiting a central cross formation of planetary stations – the June-July Grand Cross perhaps?

Crop circles have in the past sent fairly regular messages which have been interpreted with delight by the astronomical, mathematical and scientific communities: invariably using the ‘Golden Mean’ or Fibonacci perfection, almost always encouraging us to look within or upwards to the heavens. Designs have traditionally been laid out with beautiful geometric precision, but the theme lately has been decidedly astral.

Should we expect the unexpected from Comet McNaught, a new body from the Oort Cloud just starting to appear in the east to the naked eye?

COMETS
The name Comet derives from Greek ‘long-haired’ because of the coma or tail which emanates from the head as the astral body enters the inner solar system on approach to the sun. Known to emanate from two areas in the far reaches of the outer solar system, the Kuiper Belt between Uranus and Neptune and the Oort Cloud beyond Pluto’s orbit, many have been witnessed and recorded for centuries, some making repeat visits. One of the most famous, Halley’s comet, recorded by astronomer-Royal Edmond Halley (1656-1742) in 1682 as having a recurring orbit with previous documented sightings in 1456, 1531 and 1607, last visited Earth in 1986 and will on its 76-year elliptical orbit, approach the sun again in 2062.

Shoemaker-Levy crashed in fragments into Jupiter in 1994 after its near-Earth flyby

In the meantime we’ve had Shoemaker-Levy in 1994 which circled Earth before splintering and crashing into the atmosphere of Jupiter on its return trip; Hyakutake in 1996 and Hale-Bopp in 1997, a spectacular comet with a double tail tracing a similar path through Perseus; along with comet 17P/Holmes and a previous McNaught in 2007. [Robert McNaught is a British-Australian astronomer who spends a lot of time focused on telescopic comet discovery from the Antipodean observatory at Siding Spring].

Comet Hale-Bopp in solar orbit in 1997, with dramatic double tail and coma

The nucleus of a comet is like a ball of rock mixed with dirty ‘ice’: frozen water, methane, ammonia. As the object gets close to the sun, frozen gases and dust start to heat and evaporate, creating a long tail of vaporized molecules, dust and debris emanating from the coma – the ‘hair’ – to flow behind it. Out beyond the solar system perimeter, the object is only a small unremarkable frozen nucleus, visible by telescope as reflected sunlight: a speck of ice and dust. But as it is pulled in on its saucer-shaped orbit towards the sun, it transforms.

Dust elements are blown by the solar wind to form the tail, and water and gas molecules heated by their approach to the great solar furnace – hydrogen, oxygen, carbon monoxide and dioxide – have one of their electrons torn off (ionized) by the action of sunlight and they too are pushed into the ion tail. The ‘coma’ can extend to many times the size of the original nucleus, creating spectacular night-sky objects visible first through binoculars and telescopes and then, as the comet gets close to Earth orbit, to the naked eye. Because the comet’s head is on orbit headed for the sun, the tail always points away from the sun, outward from the nucleus, driven by the solar wind.

Comet C/2009 R1 McNaught has a green coma and has regrown its tail; it may manifest more unexpected variations

Special effects can result when added molecules are present. In the case of C/2009 R1, its luminous green coma is a result of ultraviolet solar rays mingling with cyanogen gas.

Comet R1 McNaught was discovered on 09/09/09, but only started becoming visible in the northern hemisphere just before dawn in late May-early June 2010 on the eastern horizon. It should be a naked-eye object best seen this weekend and early next week when the new moon is at its thinnest crescent and the comet at close range to Earth. It lies a one-and-a-half ‘Cassiopeia’ lengths below that famous ‘W’ shape in the northern sky.

Path of C/2009 R1 Comet through constellations Andromeda, Perseus, Auriga and Gemini

Thereafter it will increase in brightness as it moves from the constellation Andromeda through Perseus and then into Auriga between mid-June and early July when it passes Earth on towards its closest brush with the sun, perihelion, on July 2nd.

While C/2009 R1 then becomes difficult to see in the north, it will be a bright addition to the dawn sky in the southern hemisphere in the early nights of July on the runup to July 11th, when something miraculous will occur.

To backtrack a little, New Age metaphysician, charismatic speaker and student of the Maya and indigenous peoples, Drunvalo Melchizedek took a journey in 2003 starting in the north and moving to the south Pacific with a group of people who represented every nation of the planet Earth.

He says:

We have to find the secret of how this leap in consciousness we are being asked to make is acquired: human consciousness combines conscious awareness of the Ancient world – the world of Nature – with the conscious awareness of the modern world. The two meshed together create a new shift upward in all consciousness. If we can at least try to reach that respect and atunement with Nature, with the divine essence of the planet, we can make it into this new level of consciousness.

Drunvalo and his group first held a ceremony of love and appreciation in 2003 at the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt, said to be the north pole of the etheric web – or electromagnetic field around the Earth – offering gifts of peace and meditating on Man’s return to natural ways of living on Earth. Then, through Geomancy, (Arabic, ilm al-raml), various degrees of difficulty and many months, they finally succeeded in holding a similar ceremony on a small island in the South Pacific in 2008 at the closest point to the planet’s electromagnetic ‘south pole’, diametrically opposite the Great Pyramid and on the other side of the world within the Easter Island group. When the ceremony was over, Drunvalo says there came a series of ‘signs’ from the heavens and they knew as a group that their work of ‘birthing a new consciousness’ for the planet Earth was completed, although he says he knew it would take some considerable time for the rest of humanity to follow and to see similar ‘signs’ of awakening, quickening.

It just so happens that when Comet C/2009 R1 McNaught moves as a night sky object in early July into the southern hemisphere, something else will occur which may rock a few (astronomical as well as spiritual) socks. On July 11th, Comet McNaught will become difficult to see in both northern and southern hemispheres: in the north it is too close to the horizon – and getting very close to the sun – for practical observation as dawn breaks, another distraction; in the south it occurs during daylight hours.

On July 11th, however, the Cosmos has devised a little trick to make it visible. On that day the southern hemisphere – in particular the island of Mangaia near Easter Island (close to where Drunvalo Melchizedek and his group of meditators and earth-healers held ceremony in 2008) will experience a total solar eclipse and the sky will be dark for four minutes. During the occultation Comet McNaught will be the brightest object in the (daytime) sky! What a delightful coincidence: Easter Island residents not only got to help participate in healing the planet’s electromagnetosphere but they now get to see the heavenly response to their work.

Drunvalo, I suspect, along with the New Age community and astronomy buffs worldwide, will be pleased.

Fledgling Crop Circle: 2010:05:05

May 9, 2010

Sideways view: fledgling crop circle close to Old Sarum sacred precinct, Wiltshire

It’s not surprising the 2010 crop circle season started late – in spite of huge excitement and anticipation in croppiedom: England had a tough winter. Frosts and snow through March, freezing temperatures in April. This little beauty appeared on May 5th. Not quite as late as the season of 2006 when nothing happened until June 9th, but with so much expectancy, it will gladden a lot of hearts.

Crops like oil seed rape (canola), although planted last autumn, wait for the ground to warm up before starting into growth. Farmers suffered delays because of a late spring. But canola is a speedy plant once it gets going. It’s one of the brassica family (cabbage, radish) and when the sun shines, it responds. Yellow flowers now litter the patchwork plains and downs of Wiltshire and our first crop circle – a little avian fledgling by the looks of it – appeared late evening on 05/05.

It chose to manifest in a field adjacent to Old Sarum, one of the most well-known Iron age fortresses in this ancient sacred landscape. Sarum is the old Anglo-Saxon name for Salisbury, a fortified mound with huge surrounding bank and ditch like the Avebury stone circle; it stands on a busy intersection of a three-way prehistoric trade route between Stonehenge and the south coast, close to the barge access of the Water of Avon. This 1st Century BC fortification was a strategic ancestral stronghold of the powerful first Britons, venerated and preserved through successive cultures until the first cathedral of Old Sarum was built inside the circular structure in 1069. Before AD420 it housed a Roman garrison (as Sorviodunum = Sorvio’s fort or mound), became a Saxon fortress and finally the site of a Norman castle in the AD11th century. The present cathedral in nearby Salisbury was the second Norman cathedral of that name; and building began there in 1075 on the structure which stands today. The outline of its Old Sarum predecessor still appears in the grass within the great ditch (illustration).

Ghosts of last year's crop circle past shine through canola in East Field Alton Barnes

Much speculation preceded this little vanguard’s arrival, many expecting the first design to bend crop stalks in more popular precincts like Avebury, Milk Hill and the multi-decked fields of Alton Barnes. There, through strengthening canola stems, the shadows of last season’s pictograms show like ghost signs to a lost past.

Wiltshire Ley running through Stonehenge and Old Sarum


The location of this year’s first design does have great energetic significance, however. Old Sarum stands on one of the great electromagnetic Earth-energy lines – Wiltshire’s Leys – that run along relatively straight tracks between and among ancient sacred sites: the Sarum ley runs from a prehistoric earthmound north of Stonehenge, through Stonehenge itself to Old Sarum, to the cathedral in the present city of Salisbury and south through Clearbury Ring and Frankenbury Camp – all ancient sacred sites. The little crop circle with its bird-like design (or sacred geometric pattern of sevens and fives) hugs this energy line, choosing to appear in a crop of canola where the flowers were not yet quite open (to hover within the energy forcefield) rather than siting itself in the neighboring field where the crop is well advanced but standing outside the lines of force.

Electromagnetism may have a lot more to do with what’s going on than we realize. But it’s a difficult area to explain. Like particle and quantum theory, sacred geometry and musical tone ratios, or string theory: a little out of one’s normal range of conversation. Unless we take it one step at a time.

A little background might help. While string theory is usually the realm of quantum physicists, it is elaborated on most elegantly and simply by crop circle researcher Bert Janssen to explain some of the late ‘nineties and ‘noughties complex crop circles.

Put simply, lines of force act on other lines of force – waves in the bath, tones produced by strings of different length on a guitar or piano, light beams or an interaction of one electromagnetic field on another electromagnetic field. They all act similarly. When they do, they cause tiny nodes to appear where the waves/frequencies overlap to disturb or ‘interfere’ with each other. These interferences allow energy (‘particles’) to gather in the nodes, with subsequent result that they form patterns. While ‘superstring theory’ was developed by John Schwartz, Michael Green and Edward Witten for the subatomic world where (below atomic level everything is energy and) exotic, imaginary and invisible particles are found, we can relate it to the formation of crop circles where waves induced by electromagnetism are like musical sound waves or waves rippling on a beach: different locations, same theory.

Harmonic Convergence and Harmonic Concordance brought planets and galaxies into alignment

Earlier crop circles – before the watershed summer of 1987 – were fairly simple in manifestation and quantity. In August that year a cosmic moment of alignment occurred known as Harmonic Convergence, when the Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury and Venus stood in exact conjunction in early degrees of Virgo/cusp Leo while, according to astrologers and New Age pundits, they formed a Grand Trine with the other large planets: Jupiter in the last (anaretic) degree of Aries/cusp Taurus, Saturn and Uranus in Sagittarius/cusp Capricorn. This Grand Trine is seen by some as one of Fire, by others as an Earth Trine. To the 144,000 lightworkers and spiritual supporters who gathered to meditate at earth’s power centers in Mount Shasta, CA, Sedona, AZ, Glastonbury, Somerset, Findhorn, Scotland and Mount Fuji, Japan, this was seen as a combined Grand Trine of fire and earth, as a metaphysical turning point for the human race.

Another astrological event happened 16 years later, a cosmic moment called Harmonic Concordance in November 2003 when a Total Lunar Eclipse completed an astrologically-beneficial configuration of sun, moon and all the large planets known as a Grand Sextile or Star Tetrahedron.

The Solar System, with us in tow, and our home Galaxy became one

Between these two astrological dates a momentous happening in astrophysics brought the two sides of the coin together. During the summer of 1998, the plane of the solar system, with us on earth in its third orbit, moved into alignment with the plane of our own Milky Way Galaxy: the two planes – solar system of nine planets and the unimaginably huge spiral of stars that is our Galactic home – became one.

Since the first Galactic synchronization in the summer of 1987, with boosts in 1998, 2003 (and, some say, with the transit of Venus across the sun in 2004) the energy being beamed to earth has increased exponentially with each of the 25 years (since 1987 and) until 2012, one quarter of a century down the line. Harmonic Convergence was a watershed for crop circles, too. They started to resonate with us with increasing frequency and sophisticated design until in the final years of the ‘nineties we experienced ‘a shift’. They became our means of communication, even communion with Galactic Source. Not only does the earth continue to receive increased Galactic ‘waves’, but as we approach the final years of this Great Cycle, crop circles are increasing our excitement, anticipation of what’s in store for us Galactic children in the last years of our evolution as a race.

Long-term crop circle enthusiast, metaphysician and speaker, Freddy Silva noticed that

‘During the 1998 and 1999 seasons there was a mood swing, as if a new type of energy had lodged itself within the Earth. This energy reflected in crop circles seemed more agitated, some more disruptive to the body than usual. The veil between the the seen and the unseen felt thinner than ever. The new wave of crop circle designs fit neither the recognized hand of humans nor the will of the watchers.’

Many indigenous peoples – not just the Maya whose calendar now predominates in End Times thinking, but others like the Hopi, Inca, Apache and Modoc – work with calendars in order to predict moments of revelation, times of increased Galactic resonance, a coming together of Group Mind in us, the Gaia-earth-keepers. We are, after all, custodians of planet Earth. Those people tuned into earth changes are the first to note when such shifts occur. The Maya say God – – Hunab K’u – – is Movement and Measure which the crop circles appear to demonstrate.


Barbara and Gerry Clow in their 2004 book ‘Alchemy of Nine Dimensions’ liken the energy they feel within crop circles to ‘receiving the light’.

Barbara Clow is convinced we planetary inhabitants, either by visiting circles or seeing the signs, symbols, consciousness-triggers of their graphics, are affected in some way by them. She continues:

‘I know that many of us have been receiving these exquisite crop circle transmissions in our consciousness. When new symbols are transmitted from 8D Light, all the people on Earth are transmuted by them as Gaia herself rejuvenates.’

Crop circles designed by light tubes from upper dimensions

Her illustration shows how crop circles are made by tubes of light that are generated on fields of grain, most commonly in England. The eighth dimension (8D) is a form in the mind of God. The seventh dimension (7D) is sacred sound that can manifest form. The sixth dimension (6D) is the geometrical field that creates forms. The fifth dimension (5D) is unconditional love, an energy that comes when creation happens. The fourth dimension (4D) is where energy polarizes so that things can manifest. The third dimension (3D) is the field where the crop circle takes place.

Science fiction author and writer of the screenplay/movie ‘Day After Tomorrow’, Whitley Strieber describes Ms Clow’s book on crop circle transmissions as: ‘a message that matters tremendously to every single person on this earth. It is about nothing less than achieving relationship with a brilliant and spiritually-potent presence that has been offering itself to us for many years, and which has the capacity to transform us, starting with each one of us who is willing to open ourselves to it.’

We achieved Galactic synchronization in 1987, Galactic resonance in 1998, and Ms Clow believes we will be offered Galactic citizenship in 2012, provided we have proved by then that we are capable of reaching resonance with very high frequencies (light waves) and what she calls ‘multi-dimensional consciousness’.

Neale Donald Walsch has a final contribution to make to this new way of being: he says

‘The change goes deeper than the content of your mind, deeper than your thoughts. In fact, at the heart of the new consciousness lies the transcendence of thought, a newfound ability to rise above thought, to realize a dimension within yourself that is infinitely more vast than thought.’

As all is energy, in our own bodies, in our minds, in our combined consciousness – Galactic consciousness – we are preparing for an unprecedented change in the world we know. We are about to become part of a world we have only dreamed of.

To the new season of crop circles I say: ‘Let it begin.’

Winter Kornkreis Consciousness

February 28, 2010

Head of the Dragonfly crop circle Yatesbury June 3, 2009

KORNKREISE: such an evocative word. The Germanic-rooted among us immediately know and the vision appears in the mind. It shouldn’t be difficult, especially for those of us of Anglo-Saxon lineage, to work it out. Crop Circle is a poor translation.

I’ve always had a secret longing to use German as my first language. In this life it was not to be. But I’ve made a pretty good stab at it for a foreigner. The fact that the Saxons conquered England at some point and inserted all those combination words into the language helps considerably. But English – and consequently Americana – still have no basic concept of how to combine words. Councilspeak doesn’t have quite the same ring to it.

That’s not what this blog’s about, though. But, you have to agree: it does make a great title!

We study, or – if we’re lucky – visit crop circles in the summertime. It’s when they appear in the fields all over the world, but mostly in the Plains and Downs of southwestern England sheltered by the Cotswolds, and hemmed in by magnetic energy barriers: they are a summer phenomenon brought on by the rising electromagnetic energy field previously the sole dominion of stone circles. Winter is a time when crop circle enthusiasts study their library of last season’s images and wish it were summer – if only to see the next miracle of manifestation.

It’s not a coincidence that crop circles and stone circles appear together in the same landscape. They are drawn by the same force. It is that electromagnetic energy, that same waveband of earth magnetism which first ‘stonies’ and now ‘croppies’ have sensed long before Alfred Watkins published his ‘Old Straight Track‘ in 1925. With the current mood and a worldwide following, it seems fitting that stone circles should bow out gracefully for a time and give the stage to their ephemeral 21st Century lookalikes. After all, they’ve had it all to themselves for over 5000 years.

Avebury Great Stone Circle, Wiltshire 4500BC

Highly-charged electromagnetic landscapes, like Wiltshire, parts of Hampshire and Oxfordshire (and others in Italy, Ohio, Holland, France and Scotland) seem to have the uncanny ability to attract creations of revolutionary design. It happened at Avebury in 4000BC, at Stonehenge and Rollright a little more recently (2500BC). The new age of design is following in giant footsteps; it succeeds in bringing in the same dowsers and energy workers, the same scientific minds to witness and measure and take notes; the only difference is these more recent patterns give little time for study: the imprints are fleeting. It all has to be done in a season.

Or does it? That’s the beauty of capturing an image. And, of course, the electronic world we are now immersed in is miraculous for doing just that. We can access images at any time of year on a computer. Just like the human mind: we can summon anything we choose at ANY time.

There is a connection.

According to the author of one of Britain’s most respected crop circle sites:

Crop circles show existence of ultrasound, and such frequencies are known to exist at ancient sites such as stone circles and menhirs. Like all ancient sacred sites, crop circles appear at the intersecting points of the Earth’s magnetic pathways of energy; thus the size and shape of a crop circle is typically determined by the area of these ‘node’ points at the time of their appearance. This electric and magnetic energy can interact with brainwave patterns, and because the human body is itself electro-magnetic, crop circles are known to affect people’s biophysical rhythms. Consequently, it is not unusual for people to experience heightened states of awareness and healings in crop circles – a situation also common to sacred sites and holy spaces.

The University of California at Santa Cruz has a graduate course entitled the History of Consciousness. it’s always fully enrolled. The professors who lead the program would be the first to agree the Human Mind is evolving at such a rate we are leaving ourselves behind! At such a speed that it is immeasurable even by modern instruments. We’ve progressed beyond the capabilities of our own machines: the miracle instruments we geniuses devised to copy our own mental functions are obsolete as soon as they reach the market shelves. We are similar. The human mind that devised them is racing ahead. By the time I reach the end of this paragraph, the beginning of it is already in the past; has already served its purpose, is as obsolete as yesterday.

The mind moves on. Human spirit moves on. We are entering completely new territory as a species. And methinks the crop circle phenomenon reflects our progression.

The internet is full of incidents of Kornkreis enthusiasts in discussion in the pub after an amazing day in the corn, wondering why such-and-such a design has not yet appeared. And lo and behold, the next day that consciousness (or its higher-self equivalent) produces the design.

One of my Celestine buddies – when that internet discussion group was in full flow – remembered meditating on a summer California beach with a few friends who in their group mind ‘intended’ snow to fall – and produced a few flakes. Neale Donald Walsch quotes thousands of examples of the human capacity to create its own reality.

Twenty – even ten – years ago, crop circles were something mainstream society considered derisory, dismissed readily, assumed were fake, a plot, a simple exercise in geometry, created by amateurs with string, a fulcrum post and a tennis court roller. Not any more. If Google were to do a census – a polldaddy of internet users – I bet crop circle searches would come out in the top ten. Judging by the repeat hits I get on this site alone, [I am hugely grateful; thank you for reading], the subject is at the forefront of human consciousness.

And as consciousness creates reality, as the surge in crop circle interest quickens, so do the designs become more graphic, more complex, more filled with elusive code. The code alone intrigues. Human minds set to all winter to try to solve, to decipher and announce its meaning proudly before the onset of next season’s cryptic messages.

So what is going on? if we are doing this to ourselves – to remind ourselves of our gifts, our stellar heritage, our future, our destiny, why is it taking us so long to realize that we – the human Group Mind – are light beings ourselves? Are we so unaware as earthbound bodies that we have to gift ourselves this infinite pleasure first, of seeing beauty in a field of grain? Knowing somewhere subliminally in a deep recess that the light orbs that create them are somehow a part of us – photons within the light…

Maybe it’s because the human mind has always been a tease. It likes to pose conundrums, so it can solve them. To throw out rhetorical questions, so the unaware will take a leap in faith upwards and join the throng.

We have had many reminders of this period of the ‘End Times’ through the Ages. Civilization has not been remiss in giving us pointers along the way. Our journey has been decked with beauty from Egyptian hieroglyphs through early hieratic/cursive, Turkish script through Greek and Roman letters and numerals, Arabic constellation names through Jewish biblical symbols: Ethiopian astrology through Oriental tigers, monkeys and rats.

Numerology consistently points to symbolism, sacred geometry to mystic significance: from the Great Cycle of the Maya to the charmed ‘golden’ sequence of numbers taken from the Arabic-Hindu numeral system and presented to the world in his Book of the Abacus (Liber Abaci) in 1202 by Leonardo Fibonacci.

We are blessed with a multitude of pointers. We should all have been listening, reading, paying much more attention long before now… before the cataclysm and world upheaval – the last resort of the Cosmos, last device dreamed up by our enquiring consciousness to make us stop our journey to nowhere, take a deep breath, a long hard look and return to balance within.

I wrote earlier in the month about freak weather and its consequences. I touched on earth changes, but only touched, because the subject is fraught with pain for those who suffer through it, doom-and-gloom scenarios beloved of news media which encourages mass hysteria, and negative fear-based what-ifs.

We need only stretch our wings a little to learn how to fly

We need only stand back for a moment and admire what we as a race have achieved in one brief century – that’s the timespan since Man’s first heavier-than-air flight – or judge ourselves for what we’ve been doing to our home planet in the same period – to see that we are in need of a jolt to remember WHO WE ARE.

We are infinitely powerful beings of spiritual design given a human body which miraculously works beyond the dreams of Medicine, with a mind capable of tapping into the Great Mind – when and if we wish. Everything is laid before us; a beautiful home which presents us with four seasons of changing moods to give us infinite variety as well as bounty in food, inspiration and opportunity.

And, while we may no longer have access to the Great Library of Alexandria, we have the internet.

Through tools of electronic fashioning which we ourselves brought about, we can access anything and everything, be apprised of breakthroughs in science, touch base with friends a hemisphere away, create miracles on our own doorstep.

So, if the Great Mind helped us embellish our world with tools of every description at our disposal, is it not logical that the Overmind would also give us helpful reminders of our own destiny?: that we as a species, born of the stars, are capable of returning to the stars?

500ft Swallow with coded tail, Alton Priors June 27, 2009

I liken us to my chickens. Domestic fowl this winter have had it foul. They’ve been joined by pheasants, an occasional partridge and hoards of wild birds: thrushes, robins, tits, wrens and finches. At an unfamiliar sound or a sudden move, the startled pheasant will take off, winging its curiously heavy body through the air, until it lands exhausted a short distance away. The hen watches it rise in flight and wishes she could. She has the same heavy body, but her jungle foul genes have been bred out and egg-laying bred in. She can fly, but she’s not good at it.

We, the human race are also capable of flight. Yes, we have some excellent captains who pilot 777s and dream of flying 797s. But our brain circuitry is capable of flight beyond those dreams. We already have telepathy, meditation techniques which connect us to our Overself, our Higher Being.

There are channelers and psychics who can work from a distance to send and receive healing and messages to and from other spaces. It is only a brief leap in consciousness to use that means of communication, of ‘other’ connectedness to move ourselves through the vast reaches of space. We are in the beginning stages but we need to WANT to learn how. Our spirit is teaching us. We have only to open our hearts to learn.

Judaeo-Christian quotations can be so apt.

For those who believe (in Spirit) will find their strength renewed. They shall soar on wings like Eagles
Good News Bible Isaiah 40, 31

Wings crop circle June 13, 2009 Tawsmead Copse, Wiltshire

It may be significant that a predominant theme in the 2009 crop circle season was that of winged creatures: the phoenix, the dragonfly, the hummingbird and a plethora of designs depicting wings. And every one of them appeared within a month of the solstice: at the time of earth’s highest magnetic resonance with her solar partner. When the Stonehenge Heel stone becomes the epitome of sundial pointers; when the sun on Avebury’s ‘Sanctuary’ casts the least shadow.

Gerald Hawkins, who died in May 2003, spent a lifetime of study, firstly at the Harvard-Smithsonian Observatories in Cambridge, Mass where he devised his ‘computer’ theory for Stonehenge, Karnak and Kilmartin, Argyll; and later as Professor of physics and astronomy at Boston University, where he fed his theories into one of the world’s first computers, an IBM 704. He was primarily a physicist and astronomer, however, and in later life was drawn to the Euclidean precision and beauty of crop circles, linking their symmetry and design to intervals on the music scale. He was about to publish his 121st paper – this time on sacred geometry in crop circles – when he died.

Hummingbird crop circle Stanton St.Bernard, July 2, 2009

His 61st scientific paper, the one published in Nature in 1963 which led to his Stonehenge Decoded (Doubleday 1965) and Beyond Stonehenge (Harper & Row 1973) books, changed forever the way we look at Stonehenge and inspired the science of archaeoastronomy. His theory was that the massive trilithons and bluestones of the great iconic Salisbury Plain stone circle formed a neolithic computer-observatory for predicting eclipses of the sun and moon. His later work in crop circles gave him great satisfaction, not only for their symmetry and exquisite use of sacred geometry, but for their astronomical design, their solar and lunar predictions/inferences and for their worm’s eye view of the heavens. He would be the first to applaud those Kornkreis believers who are convinced the formations are leading us into new avenues of being, new ways of seeing.

It’s up to us now. Before the new season starts, are we going to own up to it? Are we not part of the great Whole, this Group Consciousness which is leading us back to Source, to the Universal Mind which oversees and shelters and protects us from making too many awful errors…? Will we stretch out a timid hand and allow Spirit – and Kornkreis Consciousness – to help us up on to the next dimensional rung of the Cosmic ladder?

Will we be able to fly?
