The authentic crop circles cannot be made by man

Scientific analysis

Multiple scientific analysis were made which have shown some notable modifications in the biological properties of the cereals in comparison to witness samples taken outside the formation :

-    node elongations,
-    water content reduced in these nodes,
-    perforation or bursting of some nodes,
-    significantly improved germination power (the sown seeds give stronger plants, and produce themselves more seeds), when the formation appeared in a ripe crop,
-    with other samples, the germination power on the contrary reduced (but always significantly in comparison to the witness samples), when the formation was formed in a young crop.

Other analysis rigorously conducted by scientific researchers have shown some physical and chemical modifications of the soils, inside the formations :

-    amazing growth of the crystalline structure of some constituents of clay in the soil inside the formation, in comparison to witness samples taken outside,
-    strange deposits of a white powder in the centre of some circular formations in Netherlands. This powder was analysed by a laboratory of the university of Amsterdam, it was made of magnesium hydrocarbonate,
-    unusual concentration of meteoritic dust (iron oxides). These particles exist in the atmosphere, at a very low concentration. Inside some crop circles, contents were found until several hundreds higher than outside, which shows that these particles were attracted and concentrated by the application of a strong magnetic field when the formation was created.

First real scientific research was led by a team of three researchers by the initiative of W. Levengood (BLT team) since 1989. These American researchers have collected samples coming from crop circles from different countries in order to study them, and have published their results in different specialized scientific journals (3-4-5). The results on growth anomalies have been confirmed by other researchers (6).

These scientific analyses, even if they haven't solved the nature of the phenomenon, have led to some very significant conclusions that bring out the « strange » characteristics of the phenomenon. Obviously, these modifications of the physical and biological properties translate significantly and indisputably that the techniques implemented to make these crop circles have nothing to do with the techniques, completely rudimentary, habitually used by human-counterfeiters. Indeed, the only method that the human authors of the tricks know how to use consists of crushing the stems to the ground in front of them with a simple plank (held with the help of cords), or from a roll that they push in front of them or that they pull : this rudimentary technique can certainly lead neither to physical nor biological modifications of the plants.

However, these scientific analysis are evidently difficult to implement and cannot be used to control the totality of the crop circles.

A certain number of visual observations that one can do on the ground allows any observer to distinguish certainly the true crop circles from eventual tricks.

It's necessary at first to know that the wheat (or barley) stems are constituted such that they are formed from several segments connected by three nodes, at different heights, the first being very near to the ground. These nodes give rigidity to the stems, and allow them to grow vertically.

In the majority of the crop circles, the wheat (or other grains) stems are simply folded very close from the ground in order to be lying down horizontally in a given direction (photos 1 and 2). The bends are made 2 or 3 centimetres above the level of the ground (not necessarily at the level of the first node as in the case of wheat which has often been written by mistake). The stems are neither cut nor crushed. These bends do not prevent the ears from growing and will be able to be harvested normally at the desired time. It suffices that the height of the harvester's blades be adapted. Therefore, the experiment shows that a very small proportion of seeds are lost.

The rows of straightened stems along the tractor tracks, in the zones of flattened stems

All the grain fields are marked by these double and parallel lines left by the tractor wheels when planting the crops in springtime. In general, wheat (for example) has not been sown in these lines and the earth remains bare (which allows by the way the visitors to enter the field without damaging the crops in walking in these tracks). However the wheat seeds that have been sown along these tracks often grow on compacted dirt. Accordingly, the germination of these seeds is going to experience a certain delay in relation to the others. We can indeed observe in the beginning of summer that some of the stems of wheat are shorter and still green, while others are higher and golden all over.

We observe often that in the interior of a crop circle, these late growth ears have not been flattened on the ground contrary to those surrounding them (photos 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11) and remain straightened towards the sky. We obtain thus rows of vertical ears along the tractor tracks, inside a zone where all the ears are extended to the ground, what can appear as an imperfection in the drawing.

This phenomenon that seems strange at first sight, can, in fact, be easily explained.

The farmers have indeed noticed that this phenomenon appears also when, in a field, the wheat is flattened by a strong gust of wind as that often happens. The wheat is then flattened to the ground by the wind, but without any pure geometric motif being drawn. Yet, even in this case where the cause is natural, we are able to observe that the late growth ears can remain straightened and intact, which signifies very simply that they are more resistant to the wind force (they are by the way more supple in general, being younger and greener).

We can understand that inside the crop circle also, these late growth ears have been able to resist the applied force in order to bend the stems, because this force has been applied with a minimum intensity so as to act on the wheat in normal growth, but not on those in late growth, that are more supple and resistant.

We can understand also that sometimes the wheat along side of the tractor tracks can be, however, flattened to the ground not by the applied exterior force, but by the adjacent wheat that have been flattened and that have leaned on them (photo 12). The result depends then on the direction in which the stems have been flattened.

This observation is a clear recognition and indisputable sign of an authentic crop circle. It is indeed evident that the utilization of a wood plank or a roll in order to bend the stems would have as effect crushing them all without distinction.

The dispersed stems intact in the zones of the flattened stems

In the inside of certain crop circles, and independent of the preceding observation of intact rows along the tractor tracks, we get the impression of a « sloppy job », in the sense that the wheat (or barley) stems are not all flattened to the ground, a certain proportion remained intact and nearly vertical. In fact, we must be wary of believing that this unachieved aspect or sloppiness is associated with a human involvement. The use of a mechanical tool (plank or roll) does not indeed leave a certain proportion of the ears standing. On the contrary this observation is the proof that it is not a mechanical force that has been applied (otherwise said this is not a human way), and translates simply that the intensity of this force was insufficient to bend all the ears, so that a small proportion amongst them, the most resistant, remain standing (photos 13 and 14).

Dead and stuck insects on the stems

Sometimes frogs (or other insects) are found dead and glued to the stems, the parched body, and the open wings can be discovered inside the aggregates. One can also find dead hedgehogs, the body completely dried out. This observation tends to show that these insects or animals were surprised by a very high temperature rise, which would have been of short duration since the cereals were not damaged.

Effectively, we think in general that the stems have been bent at their base after they have been softened in order to not be broken, and that this softening has been provoked by a very focused and of short duration rise in temperature (some tests realized in laboratory by the BLT team headed by W. Levengood seem indeed to confirm this interpretation). We can understand, while avoiding all damage of the crops, that this rise in temperature is regulated to the minimum, but that in consequence a small proportion of the more resistant stems are less softened and therefore, less bent. However, this observation of dried out flies and hedgehogs is not compatible with a human mechanical action. It is still a proof of the authentic nature of the crop circle.

The energy of the site

The crop circles emit a subtle energy. We can feel it directly in our physical body ; certain people are however more sensitive to it than others. It suffices for that to take a few seconds to centre oneself, and to become conscious of the subtle sensations that appear at the level of the palms of the hands for example, of the feet or of the head. Logically, this energy is more intense the more the formation is recent, and fades with time.

This energy can be measured with the help of a pendulum. It is also very easy to put in evidence by using parallel dowsing sticks. These dowsing sticks amplify in a spectacular way the variation of energy when one penetrates or when one leaves the formation. The intensity of this subtle energy is still a signature of an authentic formation. We can observe some analogous variations of energies, that is to say as strong variations in the megalithic sites (photos 15 and 16).

Absence of passage tracks on the ground

Even if the majority of the crop circles measure several tens of meters (or even several hundred), and cover then several tractor lines in which one can circulate without leaving marks on its path, it happens often that they include little motifs that are integrally situated between the tractor tracks. If a human being had been the author of this work, he would have then necessarily left some marks, crushing the wheat in order to access and realize theses motifs. Yet, the first visits in an authentic site don't show such marks (photos 17 and 18).

The variety of represented motifs

Since the represented motifs are no longer simply circular (end of the 1980's), we can observe a great variety in these motifs because, in reality... there has never been two the same while their complexity continues to grow from year to year, and that the number of observed crop circles is several thousands.

This complexity is in fact an answer to incredulous observers : it is evident that these « sculptures in the fields » cannot be realized by man without being caught in the act.

Indeed, certain drawings in the field are sometimes realized for advertising purposes, and can be relatively elaborate. But their realization requires the participation of a team of several persons who labour openly for several days. And the technique used for laying the stems on the ground is always and necessarily simple, because man is incapable of bending the stems for example, or of making all the effects that we can observe elsewhere. Yet, ...

... the crop circles are realized in a few seconds, without a visible presence !

Even if the mystery that covers the crop circles phenomenon holds principally on the fact that these works are realized almost always without the authors being seen by men, however, it happens that the significant number of observations that permit us to evaluate the necessary duration of their formation has grown. Better : a non-negligible number of people have been able to directly see a crop circle being created, and have been able to witness it.

The first significant testimony is that of the two airplane pilots knowledgeable about the crop circle phenomenon, which by day in 1996, passed two times above the Stonehenge site. The first time they didn't notice anything unusual in the fields ; the second time, a half an hour later, a magnificent crop circle was there, very close to the megalithic site, formed without the authors being seen by anyone amongst all the visitors present on this site ! Of course, it couldn't be made by man (photos 19 and 20).

Several tens of « lucky » observers were able to directly see a crop circle form itself before their eyes, and their testimonies are all concordant (see specialized books on the subject (2-7-8-9-10-11)) : it manifests in a time in the order of 10 seconds, without any presence having been detected ! Sometimes, the existence of « balls of light » in rapid movement above the field has been associated with the realization of the crop circles.

Bending methods always more complex

At the same time that the represented motifs become more and more complex each year, we can notice that the bending methods are also more and more sophisticated, even if certain formations remain relatively simple :

    We can observe, for example, a checkerboard effect, with some zones where the stems are laid down in a certain direction, while elsewhere the stems are laid down in a perpendicular direction (photos 21 and 22).

    In a circular zone where the stems have been laid down, we can observe very often the centre is emphasized by a bunch of stems remaining vertical ; this bunch can be simple or sometimes intertwined by a few other stems from the outside (photos 23, 24 and 25).

    Other times, the centre can be marked by a bouquet of bent stems which the ears have been folded in a way that makes a cone shape (photos 26, 27 and 28).

    When the central circle of a formation is of a large diameter, it can be itself realized in a complex way, composed of several parts where the stems are alternatively laid down according to a circular and radial direction (photo 29).

    Or, in a large circle, the stems can be flattened and oriented from the centre towards the exterior, but in creating some very regular waves (photo 30).

It is evident once again that these sophisticated and properly implemented bending methods cannot be attributed to humans.

Off-center circles


Isolated off-centre circle - Yatesbury - June 2007

For a few years, we often observe circles, whether isolated or integrated to some complex figures that are clearly off-centre, in this sense that the stems of the grains are laid down around a point that is clearly distinct from the geometric centre (photo 17). This is very significant because the only technique used by the counterfeiters to trace the circle is planting a pile in its geometric centre, then connecting to this pile a cord, turning around with a plank. The ears are then necessarily crushed around the geometric centre.

All the preceding observations show that a great number (for the least) of the crop circles are realized by some causes or some authors who cannot be confused with the human beings, and which asks then the problem of their origin. By whom, or by what have they been made ?

In reality, and contrarily to what has sometimes been written in the 1990's, it seems that the quasi-totality of the actually observed crop circles is authentic. In any case, even if a certain (small) fraction is indeed the result of the activity of certain human beings of doubtful motivations or for publicity stunts, the only ones worthy of our attention are the authentic crop circles, that are not made by man but they address themselves to man.

           The authentic crop circles are the works of intelligent beings

Even if a few years ago, the hypothesis of a natural cause had been advanced in order to explain the formation of crop circles, it becomes evident now that a real intelligence is present behind these formations. Why ?

The variety of stem laying methods

We have seen it above, if the varied and elaborated methods are not compatible with a human cause, they are still less compatible with a natural cause. They are really the mark of active intelligences, of intelligent beings. It is important to notice also the idea of global evolution that appears in the methods implemented, in England particularly. The crop circles are really more and more elaborated from year to year, even if certain formations are still geometrically simple (it happens that we find an isolated circle or a grouping of circles).

The authors take care to avoid observers and cameras

Every summer for numerous years, teams of researchers impassioned by the study of the phenomenon of the crop circles go to Wiltshire and post themselves high in the hills in strategic spots where the probability of a formation appearing is very great. They watch all night, armed with cameras, infrared cameras, projectors, etc. with the intention of observing a crop circle in the act of being made and to record the sequence of realization. In spite of the great number of repetitions every year, these operations always result in failure ! In the summer of 2008 I was present again near Milk Hill when several teams split up and set up on the hill by a clear night where the moon was shining. At sunrise, no one had either seen or recorded anything... but a new formation was, however there. It was made without the authors being seen by those people present, and this is completely typical of what happens each time every year !

Nobody has then succeeded until now to capture in their camera the images of a crop circle in the process of being made, and this in spite of the numerous attempts. However, one exception occurred at Oliver's Castle in 1996, but this exception being unique, made it controversial.

The conclusions imposing themselves are :

-    on the one hand, these realizations cannot be attributed to humans (they would have been identified at least by their infrared radiation) ;
-    on the other hand, the authors are beings that are invisible to us, invisible to the light, but also invisible to the infrared radiation ;
-    finally, these authors apply themselves always to realize their works without the men who are present seeing them and being able to record images of a crop circle creation. While the teams of watchers endeavour by all means to surprise the authors in the act, it appears evident that the authors make sure that they are never surprised. Better yet, it happens very often in summer, like in the preceding example, that the authors surprise people when they discover in the first glimmers of day that another crop circle had been created during the night, although they have been actively watching. It is in fact as if they are making fun of humans, as if they taunt them, or that they would like to show their unique talents !

We can also notice that the witnesses that have had the chance to see a crop circle in the process of being made before their eyes were always surprised by this realization, and were not in a state of waiting.

The authors show knowledge of advanced mathematics ...

Amongst the numerous observations, we can notice :

-    the high degree of complexity of the actual realization show evidence that the authors possess very advanced geometrical (or mathematical) knowledge. Already in the 1990's crop circle realizations have been recognized that were illustrations of the fractal theories of Mandelbrot..

-    Another striking example is the formation that appeared at Barbury Castle at the end of the month of May 2008 (photo 1). This design, which depicted a sequence of arcs of circle of increasing radii curvature, separated by discontinuities, seems at first sight enigmatic. But if we extrapolate all these line segments to the outside circle, we obtain as many rays of this circle, and after having completed by the missing rays, the circle is then split into 10 equal sectors (photo 2). We perceive then that the first circle arc extends itself on three sectors, then a point has been drawn, the second arc occupies one sector, the third sector covers four sectors, the fourth one, the fifth five, etc. We realize that this sequence of numbers represents exactly the number Pi which values 3.14159... this with 10 significant numbers, that are all exact, of course ! The following of these 10 arcs of circles (of these 10 numbers) pursue themselves by three points, which represent points of suspension because we know that following of the numbers of Pi is without limit (an irrational number)..

Resolution of the representation of the Pi number - Barbury castle - June 2008

We can notice that this number Pi has been expressed in the base of 10 (the circle has been divided in 10 sectors). We could conceive that this number could have been expressed in another base : the base of two, for example, that is used in computers and in electronic transmissions, and that is a universal base. However, the base of 10 is the base used by mankind, and this message was of course destined to be read by humans.

-    Another example: in a formation from 2006, the third dimensional effect or the perspective effect is striking when we observe from an airplane the « towers » represented in a field which is of course perfectly flat (photo 3). We understand that the restitution of this effect requires very thorough mathematical knowledge.

-    From the 1990's when the represented motifs were still simple, often gatherings of circles or rings, studies made in measuring the relationship of the different diameters had revealed that these relationships of distances were equal to the relationships of frequencies of the notes of the diatonic scale (12) ! (the musical scale). This amazing and fascinating result is evidently a new mark of authenticity of the crop circle in question.

... and knowledge of physics ...

-    In 2006, several crop circles appeared, realized according to the same theme, with two juxtaposed « wells » represented with a striking third dimensional effect (photo 4). This motif has been recognized as being a good illustration of the wormhole theory, recently developed in advanced physics, and elaborated from Einstein's Law of Relativity. This theory is about the passage between parallel universes by a tunnel, or a wormhole, connecting a black hole with a white hole..
-    several realizations in the fields are faithful representations of the solar system such as we know it, with nine principal planets (to which even the asteroid belt is added) (photos 5 and 6). These realizations reveal of course a good knowledge of the solar system..

-    we can notice that, for a few years, and after the astronomers have discovered beyond the orbit of Pluto some other planets of small dimensions (like Pluto), they have proceeded to a new classification of objects in revolution around the sun according to which the number of « true planets » is limited to eight, Pluto and the other further objects being classified as « dwarf planets ». However, the crop circles continue to describe a system of nine planets, the last being by the way off-centre (like Pluto is), because they are destined to be seen by us all human beings, and we have indeed kept the habit of representing the solar system by a gathering of nine planets gravitating around the sun..

... and historic knowledge

At first glance in this photograph (photo 7), we discover five aligned, circular crop circles. In reality, a more attentive examination shows that only one crop circle has been realized first, in the extension of four aligned tumuli, each of these four tumuli having been emphasized by the passage of the tractor that has traced two concentric circles. An amusing anecdote, it seems that the motif of this crop circle has been justly chosen in order to give the illusion of looking like the other tumuli. However, the surprise was when a curious researcher found in the archives of the village the proof that a long time ago, a fifth tumuli existed in the extension of the four others, situated exactly there where the crop circle had been realized !

This means that this crop circle has been realized in fact to reproduce this fifth tumuli, a vestige of ancient history destroyed by man, which even the local habitants had forgotten ! However, the authors, they knew it, proof that they even know our history.


The characteristics of these crop circles, and the conditions in which they appear, impose upon the impartial observer the conclusion that they are works of intelligences unrelated to humankind, but are present amongst us, even if they are not visible to us. The authors are then intelligent and immaterial beings, present amongst us.

While humans believe themselves the most intelligent beings and the masters on their planet, while they seek to establish a contact with other living beings elsewhere in the universe, the existence of crop circles shows that other intelligent beings are present on the earth, but humans don't know that. So, intelligent beings exterior to our humanity call to mankind every year, in a great number of countries all around the world. They manifest themselves by spectacular and concrete works that everyone can observe, but the majority of humans continue, however, to ignore the phenomenon and neglect to consider it because they don't understand it !
