Crop Circle Messages

Photo by Lucy Pringle, 2000

I’ve always believed the Crop Circles have been messages to us, almost a symbolic notification that we are not alone, and I feel the reason for the messages has to do with our treatment of Planet Earth and the environmental and nuclear threats that we pose for the universe.

Are we alone? I think not. It has been an innate human nature, since the beginning of time to look beyond and above for answers to universal questions: What is this all about? Why are we here? What is beyond? Maybe at sometime in the not too distant future all of us will know the answers about life beyond this planet, and our connection to it.

We may think of ourselves as the “new kids on the block” but within the vastness of the cosmos could be far older civilizations active for millennia, greatly predating the human experience on Earth. And if we look at our own advances in technology in the last few decades, it only makes since that “others” could be far beyond us in understanding how all of this works.

Crop circles not only remind me of early cave drawings but also of the Nazca Lines of Peru. The Nazca Lines are a series of geoglyphs located in the Nazca Desert, a high arid plateau that stretches between the towns of Nazca and Palpa in southern Peru. Etched in the surface of the desert pampa sand are about three hundred figures made of straight lines, geometric shapes, most clearly visible from the air. The aridness of the desert have apparently helped to preserve the markings.

The Nazca Lines are a mystery, as no one knows who made them or why. It is believed they were created between 200 BC and 700 AD. Since their discovery, the Nazca Lines have inspired various explanations such as they were made by ancient gods, made by aliens, is a landing strip for returning aliens, a celestial calendar created by the ancient Nazca civilization.

In the recent online issue of Kinetics Magazine, published by Kathryn Peters Brinkley, wife of Dannion Brinkley, known for his NDEs after being stuck by lightning, is an interview with former astronaut and founder of the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS), Dr. Edgar Mitchell.

Katheryn asked him a question about crop circles:

Kathryn: You know, Dr. Mitchell, one thing that has fascinated me in the last ten years is crop circles. Has IONS done any real research into the crop circles? Do they have an opinion about those?

Dr. Mitchell: I know Colin Andrews quite well, and also Nick Pope, in England, both of whom have been very much involved in the UFO and crop circle area. It is pretty clear these are signals, from somewhere else, to help us see things in a different way. There have been crop circles hoaxed, but by and large, the real ones are not. They are created in this powerful ways we don’t understand, yet.

Maybe one day....

When you consider the vastness of the universe, we'd have to be pretty arrogant to believe we're alone in it. And when you consider the age of the universe, we'd have to be pretty arrogant to believe that in 14 billion years, we're the only ones who have ever evolved to the point of wondering who else is out there. Humans have only been around for the last 50 thousand years or so - surely there must be somebody out there more highly evolved, and more technologically advanced than we are.

I agree, Jeff. It only stands to reason it would be so. Thanks for your comment. :-)

Fascinating. Truly.

It is fascinating! There is so much beyond what we yet understand.

In "The Biocentric Universe" article, by Robert Linza and Bob Berman in the May issue of Discover, the first paragraph says it all.

(The farther we peer into space, the more we realize that the nature of the universe cannot be understood fully by inspecting spiral galaxies or watching distant supernovas. It lies deeper. It involves our very selves.)

I found that paragraph inspiring.
Science is beginning to understand that there are levels of perception that are not limited to the speed of light. I think we are still babies, as an evolved intelligent species, in the universe. We will find the answers to these mysteries in time. I love the journey through this mysterious world and love, even more, the questions that the answers render.

I didn't believe in Aliens until I saw the movie Signs!
