Conduit Closing… 2012
Located at one of Wiltshire’s favored hotspots, more significantly the new design was ‘anticipated’, at least by a small group of devotees, praying to have their belief confirmed by an answer in the corn.This is not the first time crop circle enthusiasts have ‘wished for’ a design and one appeared. In the 1990s there were several instances of preemptive visualization, not least of these being the Mandelbrot Set crop formation of August 11, 1991, documented in full by Joseph Mason. Throughout that decade Freddie Silva expounded his theory that all crop circles were produced by ultrasound. Another visionary of the 1990s crop circle resurgence, Paul Vigay (1964-2009) corresponded with former Stonehenge decoder Gerald S. Hawkins, and they both agreed that sacred sound had a significant place in the creation of such ephemeral appearances. Hawkins had then recently succeeded in decyphering the Milk Hill script sent by the circlemakers in answer to his colleagues’ demand: “Talk to us” in 1991.
Vigay’s work with Hawkins led to a previously obscure relationship between sacred geometry and intervals on the music scale noticed by the ancient Egyptians: their ‘frozen music’, below. To Vigay it was a natural progression to make recordings of pixel images of crop circles which he played through a computer program, converting pixels to sound. He discovered the resulting music had a quality conducive to meditation, relaxation and deep contentment: essentially sounds in the ‘alpha’ wave band.Many indigenous and antique civilizations had knowledge that sound could affect matter: or that certain sound frequencies are light-resonant. This information held by the priesthoods of various religions and cultures was known as Sacred Sound or the ‘Lost Chord’. See our earlier research on the healing chambers within certain pyramids which were ‘wired for sound’.
These sacred sounds form a predetermined scale of octaves.The human voice, when suitably reverent, is also one of those tones which can affect its surroundings. One has only to hear a child being lulled to sleep by a mother’s comforting song to know that such frequencies break down barriers, cross into unseen worlds.
In the Beginning was the Word
In the late nineties, before they both died, Gerald Hawkins and Paul Vigay agreed that crop circle designs manifested precisely according to Hawkins’s theory based on four principles found in Euclidean/sacred geometry, that:
“… theorem involves concentric circles each touching the sides of a triangle, and as the triangle changes shape, it generates special crop-circle geometries”
He developed a fifth crop-circle theorem elaborating on the triangle, finding that if several concentric circles touched at the triangle’s sides and corners, different triangles gave different sets of circles. He was astonished to find that the ratios within triangles, circles and other geometric configurations equated sacred design used by the ancient Egyptians— and that they likened geometry to ‘frozen music’.
An equilateral triangle produces one of the observed crop-circle patterns; three isoceles triangles generate the other crop-circle geometries. What is most surprising is that all geometries give diatonic—musical—ratios. Before us, only the Egyptians linked geometric theorems with music.

In the crop circle community the paranormal has never been the only attraction for circlewatchers. There are those who doubt, but many more believe that electromagnetic, sonar and solar powers are at work. In the 2012 season of many pitfalls—despite angry removal of designs by harassed farmers, long periods of rain, a dominant theme has nevertheless penetrated the cropwatcher psyche—that transmission via ancient serpent earth-energy is alive and wishing to communicate with those earth-dwellers willing to believe such communication possible.
Gerald Hawkins believed it, his team decyphering the 1991 Milk Hill glyph found it read both ways: left-to-right and right-to-left:
Oppono-Astos = I oppose acts of cunning (deception)
and OII-OCCULUI-II-NUNC-IIO = I am hidden for now
Avebury heartland is simultaneously neolithic stone circle heaven, and twenty-first century crop circle hub. And it looked as if the sacredness was beginning to rub off.
“The crop circles have become signs and portents of our time. They function as huge Rorschach tests writ large in the fields of southern England, deciphered according to the belief of those who view the phenomenon”
John Lundberg, circlemaker
In late August, after a dreary year of rain-drenched crops, with anxious farmers cutting fields as soon as standing grain was dry enough to drive a combine through, several crop designs came and went overnight. The build-up of croppie anticipation was dashed in several instances of crop circles being cut out before visitors could set foot in fragile fields. In many instances, solitary aerial photographs were a boon to those making the journey on foot, only to find a formation had vanished. Many felt disappointment, experienced no clearcut finale , as in previous seasons.
As the season lengthened into fall, and September 11th drew on to equinox—many Maya-inspired followers were anticipating a series of consecutive energy portals described vividly by Maya scholar Miguel Etchepare, featured in our last blog, A small intrepid group-within-a-group sensing a need for closure and an energy-doorway offering an opportunity, synchronously envisaged asking for another design to appear. If a communal prayer went up, perhaps the spirit of the corn might hear and send a reply.
Hesitant amateurs at first, the ‘experiment’ couldn’t decide on what to visualize: the last CC had been the stunning August 26th hypercube, above: an exquisitely executed UFO-launch pad at Hackpen Hill. Yet the dominant theme of previous months had been the ‘tadpoles’, dragon-energy, the voice of Mother Earth-serpent before she settled on her sacred nest. The Maya Tzolkin portal presented ten consecutive days full of serpent energy; intense discussion followed via various threads, and design suggestions came forward. The inspiration percolated.
Our ancestors would have been proud of us: a twenty-first century group of predominantly western first-world types who didn’t really believe in folk magic; didn’t really think they could do something so connected to the Group Mind. But Brazilian astronomer Etchepare suggested, instead of a multitude of wishful-thinking-dreamscape-ideas—which could dissipate group energy—a simple stylized serpent head/upheld curved angel wings, above right, the die was cast. The graphic was posted on Facebook, people got on with their lives; but subliminally, we must all have waited and wondered…Meanwhile Miguel, spurred on by the Tzolkin portal, was simultaneously being given divine inspiration to interpret the remarkable Lammas serpentine appearance which nestled at Avebury, August 1st. See his remarkable video, below, one of an interpretive series, linking the serpents within the neolithic amphitheatre of Avebury, Woodborough, Picked Hill to the rising of the Serpent—constellation Serpens, held by Ophiuchus—alongside planets Saturn, Mars, Mercury and Venus as a prelude to dawn on December 21st, 2012.
No wonder our prayer in sound had potency. All the energy was there. Croppies believed! As individuals focused in their own way—but on an energetic level presenting a communal tone—voiced or unvoiced—the ‘intent’, ‘request’, belief for a final glyph to appear, was sent aloft: not perhaps on the same physical level as the SETI or Arecibo transmissions of the 1970s-1990s, but, intuitively, prayerfully, with focused intent from the Group Mind to the energy matrix ‘out there’.
As we all know, the sound of a loved one’s voice, or a prayer released in earnest petition, can hold a vibration similar to music. From Gregorian chant to cathedral choir to rock and roll, music creates its own sacred vibration. The original utterance made by God in all Hebrew, Aramaic, Arab and Vedic tradition was the ‘Word’: a sound issuing through the airwaves. Regardless of how one interprets it, a sound by a dedicated—however small—group of humanity issued during September 11th weekend rose into the creative matrix to swirl with other sounds among the stars.
A strictly ordered system of mathematical progressions is necessary to create the smallest speck of matter from the primeval matrix of space. This mathematical fractal progression utilizes the mathematical equation relating to three Sacred Sounds
Φ PHI = 7/5 PI/e*
Bruce L. Cathie, The Energy Grid—Lost Science, 1997
*Φ PHI – the ratio that controls the formation of life
π PI – the ratio that controls the formation of circles
e – the ratio that control the formation of logarithmic spirals
It would seem the prayer invoked an answer—perhaps more than one. The Tzolkin portal seemed to act like a live ‘conduit’ between the Oversoul, the Group Mind and the fields. The ‘galactic activation’ windows, September 11-21, which sliced through equinox blues and inspired Etchepare’s Soothing Serpents series on YouTube, suddenly on new moon weekend, October 13th, produced a new formation—magically—in Miguel’s home country of Brazil. If that were not proof enough, immediately on its heels came a second—final—design on British soil: the much-anticipated curving motif of October 14th at Windmill Hill, top. Even the most skeptic among us can see it bears resemblance to the ‘prayer’ motif, second top.
We were told in Chilbolton 2002, that there is good out there; that we should believe.
Among crop circle believers—marginalized at the best of times—there now exists a warm fuzzy feeling: an answer did come: there is good out there.
‘Conduit closing’ for 2012. *Bell sound*
