Hard on the heels of a mild winter, spring appeared heralded by
possibly our earliest ever crop circle.
On the 15 April (2007) a glorious ring
containing seven arcs of ascending size, appeared on the plateau at
Oliver's Castle, nr Devises, Wiltshire in oil seed rape (canola).
The glorious yellow emphasized the size and magnificence of the
formation which although reported on the 15 April could have been
there a couple of days previously. Not only might it have been the
earliest event but also certainly the largest and most complicated
ever to appear in this particular crop. Reports on the ground lay
from people examining the stalks were favorable.
May was a wonderfully sunny and warm month as indeed was the start
of June but subsequently the weather deteriorated rapidly into a wet
and dismal summer. Were there fewer formations than usual as a
result of these poor conditions?
No quite the reverse; unexpectedly we
had more circles then the previous year.
East Meon (uk1995ck)
One of my favorites was the circle at
Winterbourne Monkton (24 May 2007) containing nested crescents that
was surely a close and long lost relation of the wonderful East Meon
formation of July 1995.
Its visual harmonious quality was a joy to
On the first June one of the most important formations of the year
appeared in barley at Yatesbury, Nr Avebury Trusloe in Wiltshire
Yatesbury, Nr Avebury
Trusloe in Wiltshire
A five-fold spiral spanning almost 300
feet in diameter, it contained 57 tiny circles.
Charlie Balloch, a professional
musician from Arizona, likened the formation to a Pythagorean
Spiral. Named after the ancient Greek mathematician Pythagoras, the
Pythagorean Comma or Diatonic Comma was known to the Chinese some
200 years BC. and possibly even earlier to the Babylonians. It
demonstrates the harmonious relationship between number and music.
On receiving Charlie's email I got in touch with Jim Lyons from York
University who replied saying:
As soon as I looked at the Yatesbury
photos and saw the `missing` circles, instantaneously I knew it
was a Standing Wave Fractal - just what I have been working on
for the last two years!
The Pythagorean Comma is the fractal
part of the nesting of harmonics. Basically in Earth Energies (Crop
Circles) the numbers 9 & 8 occur. 9/8 -1.125 is approximately a
major tone on the diatonic scale which dowsers have known for
decades describes earth energy patterns.
There are equivalently six tones in a
major scale 5 tones + 2 semitones =6 tones. (9/8)6 is
2.0273 which since a scale doubles the frequency gives the ratio
1.0136, the round off being the Pythagorean comma.
This is the basis of the fractal nature
of all scales. In particular, I am applying
Global Scaling Theory
to not only Crop Circles but also the whole process of
Consciousness, particularly its non local properties.
The theory is based on standing waves in
logarithmic space. This may sound highly technical but it is simply
the piano keyboard! The Universe is a glorious keyboard with strings
between every atom of matter (holographic) and by implication all
On the same day in an adjacent field appeared one of the smallest
and simplest formations of the year.
A plain circle containing the
most amazingly complicated ground lay. I buried my bottles and later
retrieved them and sent them to Jim Lyons for full trace mineral
testing. The results were as follows. The most important changes
show an ascending scale of nitrate level starting from the first
control 437 and 438 to the bottle 440 buried in the centre of the
Water Analysis Tables.
These results were intriguing but became even more tantalizing on
reading that the original nitrate content on the bottle of Volvic
water. 6.3 mg/l and yet the highest nitrate presence that was found
in the bottle buried in the centre was only 2.570 mg/l.
Jim Lyons's comments:
Having now been through the various
measured parameters, besides the nitrate results, there are two
other potentially interesting results to note. Firstly, the
water pH is distinctly lower for sample 437 - this is only
slightly alkaline at 7.4. The remaining values are all around
8.3 which is quite common.
Again sample 437 has a noticeable
higher( 15%) electrical conductivity @ 0.230 mmhos/cm than the
others. Recall we have noticed this before. In addition 437 had
a slightly greater dowsable aura then the others, around 10%.
However, none were very large, being fractionally over normal
say for an immature crop.
As for the nitrate results, these were
quite unexpected and indeed do show a steady increase through the
The percentage changes are
We have to ponder the mechanism here as
to how this can happen, since no known material inflow of nitrate
can occur through the glass. I can only suggest at this point in
time it is akin to the results we achieved with electrical effects
some time ago involving combining Oxygen and Nitrogen in some form
of discharge. This topic certainly deserves some more investigation.
I have plotted the results in a bar chart.
However possibly the most tantalizing event of the summer was yet to
come. It occurred on the night of 07-07-07.
East Field Formation
July 7, 2007
As there has been much controversy over
the East Field Fractal Necklace formation that appeared during that
night, I will now endeavor to pull together all the strands of this
East Field, Alton Barnes, Nr Marlborough
is an enormous field covering approx 100 acres of hugely undulating
Wiltshire, UK Formation, 2007
On the night of the 6/7th July a man
parked his car in the silage pit at the bottom of East Field.
Charles Mallett of the Silent
Circle Café interviewed him and this is what he told Charles. At
approximately 10.30-10.45 pm that evening a dark blue jeep
containing several people pulled into the silage pit. It was there
for 7-8 minutes with its lights shining into his car.
In return he flashed his lights at the
jeep. Someone wearing a military type jacket with a hood made of
stiff rigid canvas like material got out of the jeep and came up to
his car. He could not see the person's face due to the hood. He told
Charles that he was sitting in the back of his car with the back
window open so that he could see the stars and also the field. He
was watching a DVD (with no audio attachments or headphones) that
was placed in the small space between the two front seats.
He asked the person from the jeep if he
could help him but there was no response and the person turned
around and walked back to the jeep and it drove off in the Pewsey
Five to ten minutes the jeep returned swinging round in a circle so
that it faced the exit to the silage pit. Four people got out. One
was wearing a light checked lumberjack shirt and the others three
wore dark clothes. They left the silage pit walking on the road
behind the hedge out of his vision.
After a short time they returned and one
by one they jumped down the bank over the thistles into East field.
They were carrying no equipment. The man in the car was awake till
about 2.30am when he dosed off until about 4.40am when he woke and
saw part of the formation for the first time. He had heard no cars
enter the silage pit during that time.
He did not go into the formation
initially as he was of the opinion that it had been made by the four
people he had seen enter the field earlier; indeed it was not until
later when he saw Charles Mallet and others coming out of the field
about 7.30am that he went in himself for the first time and decided
that there was no possible way that the four people could have made
a formation of such a size and complexity in the short period of
time that has elapsed.
Mathew Williams states that he and others made the formation. That
they had not made any plans, that there were no undulations in the
field and that the flash soon after 3am was due to one of his team
of hoaxer's hair catching fire!
He also says that he and his team were still in the field making the
formation at 4am and the reason they were not spotted by Win, Gary
and Paula was because they were invisible due to the phenomenon's
The story continues with the principle player Win Keech, an
engineer now working as a Computer Engineer, who also worked as a
designer at Rolls Royce, and was a pilot in the Royal Air Force for
a short time.
His great interest in UFO's is approached from a scientific and
objective point of view.
In 1991 he witnessed a pale luminous disk above the crop in East
Field and the subsequent appearance of a small circle. As the disk
traveled slowly across the field it was the size of a small dinner
plate before expanding to approx 20 feet in diameter. It then became
stationary hovering over the crop; the corn beneath shook, rattled
and fell naturally, taking only about 3 seconds. The disk then moved
away across the field contracting as it did so.
Keech went to where he had seen the
luminous object and found a small circle of approx 20 ft in
On the evening of the 6th July 07, Keech still keenly interested in
UFO's, arrived at the car park at Knapp Hill. He parked his car
further along the track and set up camera equipment on the roof of
and inside his car and then walked up to the peak of Knapp Hill
overlooking East Field and also giving him a clear view of
Lockeridge behind and Milk Hill to the west. He finished setting up
these cameras by 11:08 and he reached the top of Knapp Hill by
approx: 11:15 - 11:30. This was confirmed by his girl friend Ann
Shield who received a text message from him saying that he was all
ready, steady go.
His continually running equipment consisted of a CCTV camera with
infrared; this was linked directly to a bank of VCR recording
machines ran off a battery power supply.
He also had an extremely sensitive SONY VX 2100 camcorder. This was
used as a spot scope and was mounted on a tripod for scanning the
field. It was recording into a JVC gr-dv500 camcorder.
Keech tells me that:
The Sony vx2100 was at the time of
07-07-07 the most light sensitive (professional) camcorder
available... it has a quoted light sensitivity of 1 lux, but in
practice can be made to perform beyond that using manual
settings of the slow shutter mode - enabling it to image
slightly beyond eye sensitivity, in color at broadcast
It was used as a high zoom (12x) color spot scope
for the first half of the night, recording to its mini-dv tape.
Due to the intense wind blown condensation (almost drizzle), the
tape head moisture protection interlock activated preventing
recording to its own internal tape when we first imaged the
formation (around 3:20am bst) (see photo)... consequently I
output the video from its imaging system directly to a JVC
gr-dv500 (compact high bandwidth camcorder) via a fire-wire to
fire-wire connection, using the JVC's mini-dv tape recording in
place of the vx2100.
Previously the gr-dv500 had been used to
record directly from the cctv camera mounted on the back of the
Seben Generation 1+ image intensifier with 3x lens which was
used for general sweeps of the intensely dark area.
The image intensifier has certain drawbacks - it has relatively
bad resolution and the image suffers from some spherical
aberration, which means that it is in sharp focus at its centre,
but slightly out of focus away from the centre ... it is however
roughly 1000 times more light sensitive than the human eye and
works by accelerating a photon cascade within a video tube and
projecting the image onto a green phosphor screen - and works
when nothing else is sensitive enough.
A YD66 (0.02 lux) cctv
was mounted to view the image and the output went directly to
the gr-dv500 via an AV composite video output. When not scanning
the field the gr-dv500 was placed in the inside of my jacket to
protect it from the condensation/drizzle. By experiment it was
found that when recording to the gr-dv500 from the vx2100 the
digital time code of the vx2100 was superseded by the gr-dv500's
own time code.
The gr-dv500 was affected by some energetic
process that night which changed its time code by 9 mins from
the previously synchronized GMT time.
It is also of note that
the internal photo memory stick of my Ericson photo phone was
also scrambled that night, possibly by the same process.
In order to cover all eventualities he
had a vast amount of other very sensitive equipment so that if one
item had shortcomings other equipment present would cover it.
With his equipment he could see all that was happening, not only the
lights of the cars but also he would have seen and recorded anyone
entering the field using infra red lights of any kind. His VX2100
camera could have zoomed in and identified them. He could also hear
any sound very clearly.
His dog had been behaving very strangely in that area that day which
was another reason why he felt he should do a night watch.
On a still picture at 1:23am, he saw nothing in the field but he
said it was such a very dark black night that it would have been
hard to see anything at all. Keech kindly agreed to send the footage
to Rodney Hale for analysis. I have known Hale for many years and
apart from being an expert in his field he is also a man of
integrity and impartiality. He is a Chartered Engineer and MIET
(Member of the Institution of Engineering and Technology) and Fellow
of the Royal Meteorological Society.
By carefully overlaying the photos taken
at 1:15am and then taking the average of them all, Hale found a
shadow in the field that appeared to be part of the formation
closest to Knapp Hill.
taken at 01.15am BST
The four photographs were timed at
01:12, 01:13, 01:14 and 01:23. 'Since the combined photo is an
average of these times, I have called it 01:15.'
It is striking to see how the upper part of the formation closest to
Knapp Hill seems to be present in the field at that time.
metrological image taken at 1:27 am on the 07-07-07 shows Wiltshire
under thick cloud.
Keech said that he would have to have
another look at his findings, especially the video, for evidence of
activity at that time, and perhaps come up with a re-appraisal of
the sequence of events and how the flash might fit into things.
However he still has a colossal amount of footage to examine so the
findings may take some time to emerge.
He tells me that:
With respect to Hale's analysis, I
do agree that something appears present on the enhancement by
What it is, neither of us are certain - my concern is with
noise artifacts in the Sony's internal processing and that at
such low light levels, the effect of shadow from
cloud-streetlight scatter/reflection from Alton Barnes must be
considered - I would not like to say what we are looking at in
Hale's enhancement - I would like it to be a pre-cursor to the
formation, but I cannot prove that so will not present that as
The photos Hale used were taken on Sony DSC-F717 semi
professional still camera, with 5X f2 lens and 5 mpix resolution
on a ccd chip larger than subsequent models. The photos were
very long exposures (up to 10 secs) and this is where we must be
very careful about noise. In the absence of light, the imaging
sensors produce random noise signals called dark noise - this is
a natural quantum effect of the transistors of the ccd sensor.
What the long exposure noise reduction system of the Sony does
is first take the photo (with the noise), then retakes the same
exposure length with the shutter closed. It then subtracts the
dark image noise values from the image - which is fine, except
that the noise is truly random and so an exact time spaced
cancellation cannot be achieved.
The images that night were also
saved in a jpeg format, for space saving on the memory stick
used - this also adds noise by degrading the uncompressed image
using a lossy compression process... that is it throws away
information that cannot be retrieved afterwards - it also does
this in small block sizes by comparing levels of surrounding
image pixels and is a processing model based on the eye's
perceptual model... so we have to be careful when enhancing,
that the compression process hasn't added previously hidden
image compression artifacts also... when overlaying different
images for enhancement this can be a problem... so we have to
be very careful about the conclusions - but Hale has worked very
hard and has done a good job.
Taking into consideration the events
earlier that evening when the men were seen to have entered the
field without equipment and clearly without lights else they would
have shown up on Keech's instruments, is it possible that they were
able to construct the larger part of the formation in the one hour
and forty-five minutes that had elapsed?
Gary King and Paula Presdee-Jones joined Keech about 1:30am. At
3:08am there was a huge flash that lit up the whole field but was of
such short duration that Keech said that if you had blinked at that
moment you would have missed it.
At approx: 3:15am the picture taken at that time shows a large
shadow in the field.
Two of the witnesses King and Presdee-Jones raced down the hill
whooping with joy and excitement and were the first people to enter
this gigantic formation. They said the fallen crop was so fresh and
springy that as they stepped on it, it sounded like breaking glass.
It is one of the most magical events of ones life to be the first
person to step into a new crop circle.
When Keech entered the formation about 4:50am, his dog once again
became excessively agitated and wolfed down quantities of fallen
crop and promptly went down a tramline and was sick twice. I have
many reports of people compulsively eating the fallen crop.
The formation stretches for 1033 feet and is 500 feet wide and
consists of 150 plus circles, the largest measuring 184 x 164 feet.
Interestingly many circles are ellipses not circles. The ellipses
were shown to be exactly in relation to the slope and gradient of
the land. An indication that the crop circle force was descending
The flattened crop covers nearly 2.25 acres or 87,000 square feet
and when standing in the top part of the formation it is impossible
to see the lower part and vice versa, making it impossible to
humanly construct any accurate image or communicate from one end to
The mathematics contained in this formation are complicated fractals
hence its name the Fractal Necklace.
I was lucky enough to fly over it just seven hours after it appeared
and seeing it from above was amazing. It was so enormous we had to
fly up to about 2000 feet in order to get the whole formation in the
frame. Interestingly the field looked flat from the air and it
wasn't until I went into it that I realized quite how hilly and
undulating it was.
Each year I organize a day when we conduct scientific research. This
year we were measuring the endocrine system to see how the hormone
levels might be affected, also how our body organs might react.
Hazel Naughton of
Nutrivital (ex. Biotech Health) wrote telling me
We tested 8 researchers on the Asyra
machine. The first test was carried out indoors at the Avebury
study centre, the 2nd, about an hour later, was conducted on the
edge of the field near the crop circle and the 3rd test was
carried out in one of the large circles of the crop circle
itself. We carried out all three tests within 2 hours so that
the effects of eating and drinking would not alter the results.
(Again I'll email which tests were
carried out from work but briefly we tested the baseline which
consists of the main areas of the body to see where there are
energy imbalances, the causal issues behind these imbalances and
Those tested were Lucy, Janet, Anne, Jackie, Gianni, Jim, Roger
There were 5 who showed increased energy imbalance when in the
circle. Lucy (from 5to 7), Janet (5-7), Anne (8-13), Jackie
(6-7), Jim (4-6). Giovanni and Christopher showed less energy
imbalance in the circle and Roger stayed the same.
Our tests can show the causal issues behind the energy
imbalances - the library holds many thousands of reasons, from
viruses to bacteria, parasites, hormones etc (a list will be
included from work) but some that I found interesting as they do
not come up very often are Geopathic Stress, harmful energies,
From the readings in the circle the following had these causal
issues show up:
Jackie, Christopher, Janet, Anne
and Lucy. So 5 out of 8 showed up with Geopathic stress.
5 showed an energy imbalance in their kidneys when in the
circle. They were Lucy, Anne, Giovanni, Jackie and
The 4 who started these tests with the most energy
imbalances were Gianni, Christopher, Jackie and Anne. All 4
showed a kidney imbalance in the circle and 3 had an immune
system response in the circle - hopefully showing some
healing taking place. Certainly both Gianni and
Christopher's readings were greatly improved when in the
circle. The exception to this was Anne but her immune system
had shown up from test 1 which suggests that her immune
system was already working hard at bringing her back to
balance which would explain it not showing up when in the
4 out of the 8 showed a Gallbladder imbalance in test one
and they were all balanced in test 3. They were Anne,
Jackie, Christopher and Gianni. Gianni's actually showed up
as having increased energy in test 3 which I found
interesting as he has had his gallbladder removed.
4 showed an increased hormonal activity when in the circle.
Lucy, Janet, Gianni, and Christopher.
4 showed an imbalance with melatonin (which governs our
sleep/wake cycles and regulates body rhythms) in test 3,
Anne and Jackie showed it in test 2.
After we had concluded the tests several
of us lay down in various parts of the formation.
Two people came into the same small
satellite circle with me and we all experienced feelings of immense
and peace and euphoria. We felt as thought we were in our own
interdimensional energy space and quite apart from the outside
world. I have experienced this before and call it the 'Cathedral
Effect'. We also felt as though our energy levels had been
The following day many of the people who were present with me
experienced strange effects.
Indeed I have had many reports sent to
me by people who also encountered strange happenings. A man who
visited the formation on the first morning took 4 camera batteries
with him. Three were newly charged rechargeable batteries; the
fourth was a completely new non-rechargeable battery. To his dismay
he was only able to take four pictures as one by one the batteries
drained as soon as he put them into this camera.
A woman who took her Remote Keyless Car Entry Device into the
formation with her, found on her return to her car that her device
has been completely wiped, all the information had been erased and
it was now unusable! The information can be erased or reset when
exposed to strong Ultra Violet light of a certain wavelength whilst
the flash ram can be cleared or scrambled with an electrical charge.
The controller chip would need a significant electrical charge to
disrupt operations along the lines of an
EMP (Electro Magnetic
Hazel Naughton who had been with me in the small satellite
circle after we had concluded the tests and who ran around skipping
like a school girl and who had lain flat on the ground, reported
that she had suffered from appalling nightmares (the type that wake
one up in a muck sweat they are so terrible), panic attacks and
vibrating fingers; she also found it very hard to concentrate.
These effects lasted for almost a week.
George Petry reported:
I've been very weary but not aching,
and mentally unfocussed, particularly yesterday where I got no
work done....just pottering and talking with people. Sleep has
been very disrupted and unsatisfying. I woke this morning at
01:29 and never really got back into a deep sleep.
Anne Leonard, Vice President of the
Dowsing Society, financial adviser and founder of
World, at wrote about how she felt the
"...felt dizzy and dopey. I don't
know how else to describe it but really the day floated by
somehow. I had a letter to sign and send off and I WAS NOT ABLE
TO DO IT."
I had not heard from Christopher Weeks
so telephoned him on the Thursday after our visit.
He told me that unlike the others he had
wanted to get out of the circle almost as soon as he entered. His
heart was thumping and he felt unwell. He told me that subsequently
he had had panic attacks, terrible dreams, depression and his mind
had been like 'treacle'. He had been unable to get on with his work.
The night after our scientific tests, I woke at 1.20am with the most
terrible pains running from inside my toes all the way up my
shinbone to just under my knees. I tumbled out of bed and clung on
to the side of the bed for what seemed like an eternity. The pain
was excruciating and I did not know how long I was going to be able
to cope with such a degree of agony. After approximately 10 minutes
the pain went leaving a dull ache.
I felt sure my legs would be covered in
bruises the following morning but to my amazement there was not a
blemish to be seen. However my legs ached for the next five days. I
am a crampy person but this was something quite different, my
muscles were not in spasm, also it seemed that the pain was located
close to or IN my shinbone.
My experience reminded me of a report sent in by someone who had
entered the formation on the morning it had appeared and who had
knelt down on the flattened crop:
I went into the formation 1:30pm and
had left the field itself by 2:30pm. Time of the first 'spasm'
to both legs: eight and a half hours later, lasting for about
twenty minutes. Then there was a gap of about 3/4 of an hour and
then I had another 'spasm 'on the right leg only, same area.
First event: I was walking normally from a sofa in my living
room towards my hall, when some 20ft from the sofa, the sudden
onset of pain some forced me to the floor, due to the complete
seizure of both legs. The pain was generated from beyond the
toes to just below the knee. Up the line of the shinbone. It was
not in the muscles - all of which were quite relaxed during this
I am not a 'crampy' person, and want it on record
that this experience, while producing very acute physical
responses - did NOT actually occur within the bone or leg
itself. I also immediately knew that this was related to my
earlier visit to the crop formation in East Field. So I waited
it out, while testing my ability to stand up from time to time.
As soon as it ended, I staggered into my kitchen and treated it
by drinking cider vinegar with honey and hot water.
The second attack to the right leg occurred after I had gone to
bed. It was also unstoppable, even in trying to bend, tense and
straighten muscles - there was no way of stopping the pain which
again focused on the length of the shinbone.
Again the muscles
were completely relaxed. However, knowing that this was a crop
event, I used my mind to control the pain, get out of bed and go
and get more cider vinegar, honey and hot water. Although I had
a lingering sensation in the area around and external to, my
right leg only, for several days after the event - it did not
Given that my events, occurring outside the physical
body, do not concur with the actual physical symptoms of Peroneal nerve problems, I am thus far of the conclusion that
this event occurred in the etheric but was 'picked up' by the
sensors in the physical body.
Perhaps surprisingly, I find
myself, grateful for the experience - it is still most
In order to try and get a scientific
explanation I eventually went to see my doctor who ruled out any
vascular condition due the fact that my legs were not bruised.
She said I had described a nerve pain. We have a
nerve called the Peroneal that is associated with the sciatic nerve originating in
the L5 lumber spinal chord which would act as a neuro-transmitting
agent, being triggered as a result of some unknown energy force,
possibly electromagnetic. It would appear that the pain was as a
result of a change in the current transmitting through nerve cells.
Another member of the team told me that she had also been woken with
terrible leg pains during the following night and had been unable to
get back to sleep.
A report came from a man as he approached the formation from the
direction of the silage pit which lies by the road running from
Alton Barnes to Pewsey. As he neared the formation his vision became
'whurry' and his whole vision split into two halves with a
horizontal line separating the two halves. One section going one
way, the other section going the opposite way.
His vision was clear
in the middle. He does not wear spectacles and has normal vision. He
did not see any change in the colors and it has not happened to him
before or since. Could the cause be due to his normal muscular
conversion being spontaneously distorted? The eddy currents in his
brain seemed be affected. We have neurons that run to intraocular
A woman who on entry was as excited 'as a schoolgirl all over again
and full of life', went from one circle to the next, each one
feeling different. She then started to feel that everything was not
'OK', couldn't relax and felt nauseous.
"I made a short meditation, drawing
down the power of Sound, Light and Love. Felt like standing in

Ann Shield, Win Keech's girl
friend wrote telling me that:
I entered the circle at about 5.00
am in the morning, (fourth person in) and it felt electric and
buzzy - making the hairs on my arms stand on end. I felt
euphoric too while in the circle, but after I'd left it felt
that I didn't want to go back there, and in fact was very keen
to return home to North Wales, as planned for that day.
I thought this a strange reaction on
my part, as I have been accompanying Win on these research trips
for a couple of years, and this was what we'd been waiting for,
yet I didn't seem to want anything to do with it - very
puzzling, when I look back?
When I got back to North Wales that afternoon, I was very
excited and told lots of friends about it. I had a strange
experience that afternoon, when I called my son in London to
tell him about it. I expected his usual cynicism and skepticism,
but as I was describing it and telling him that we'd spoken to
people in the Silent Circle cafe, he replied that he was
actually looking at a picture of the Silent Circle in the Daily
Express as we were speaking!!!
Just a strange coincidence, but
I am not prone to nightmares, but had some horrible ones,
probably for about 2 weeks afterwards. I can't remember them
now, but they were nasty and stayed with me all day, dreams of
death, injury etc.
I had a sore throat and sore eyes also for about 2 weeks
I am not generally a moody person, quite laid back really, but
felt very angry for a long time - probably a month or even more?
I am a counsellor, so fairly self aware, and again, am generally
a positive person, not given to dwelling on negatives. I tried
to find all sorts of explanations for why I felt so bad for so
long, but there didn't seem to be any tangible reason
I also had a disruption to my menstrual cycle
Another odd thing had happened the day before, when Win and I
were on the top of Knapp Hill, trying to find a suitable place
to set up the cameras. It was very windy and rainy and I had
been taking photos of the Golden Ball circle and just sitting on
top of the hill with my dog, Blue.
When we decided to go down
the hill again, I felt incredibly energized, and the dog was
excited too. We ran all the way down the hill, and I wasn't even
out of breath when I reached the bottom????? (Although I'm not
totally unfit, I'm not that fit either!)
All in all, although I was thrilled that Win had captured the
amazing footage after all this time, and bowled over to be there
to see it ,and be in it so soon after it was formed, I don't
think the experience had a positive affect on me. It also made
my dog vomit!
These are just a few reports I have
received, certainly the effects reported have been the most
extraordinary and varied that I have ever received from one
formation. Thousands of people visited this event and I would be
most grateful to hear from anyone else who experienced anything
strange as I am building up a dossier.
To find any of these in a normal everyday environment is most
(There have also been instances in the past when credit cards have
also been wiped clean!)
Plants kindly collected by Mallet from East Field 07-07-07 were sent
to Jim Lyons who reported that:
I have been in touch with my
researcher Fabien Deswartes of Green Chemistry who is a leading
UK expert on wheat straw and its uses. They will analyze the
oils from two samples of the East Field formation. The analysis
they do is quite unique and we have no idea what may turn up but
it will be world first.
It takes time as it uses CO2
extraction processing which is a very sensitive technique. They
will then use gas chromatography which will tell us exactly
which oils are involved. They have a large database so will be
able to tell us exactly what has happened to the straw (if
Herewith his written reply:
I carried out some wax analysis
using Gas Chromatography (GC) just before Xmas to look at the
chemical composition of the wax covering the surface of the two
samples you gave me. Unfortunately, there is no appreciable
differences between the two wax extracted - which indeed are
very similar to waxes from other wheat varieties. Sorry it did
not work out!
The results were inconclusive. This
result does however tie in with Dowsing results which indicated
very little variation in crop energy across the formation.
Report from W.C. Levengood, Pinelandia
Biophysical Laboratory, Grass Lake, Michigan in which he told Linda
Moulton-Howe of Earthfiles:
This formation was a very puzzling
one since I've never seen anything before that did not follow a
consistent pattern. For example, in the first page of my report,
you'll notice I have Table I showing significantly altered node
lengths in the control plants taken at different quadrants of
Research Report from Pinelandia
Biophysical Laboratory, August 12, 2007, by W. C. Levengood:
One of the characteristics of wheat
is how uniformly it grows and how you can depend on controls to
give you an idea of what's going on in the field. But in this
East Field, couldn't do that. In the northwest quadrants, the
samples Charles Mallett took there showed statistically
significant in node length and a decrease in seedling
Again, neither one of them (as
control samples) should show any significant difference between
the northwest and the southeast and yet the control plants
collected from those parts of the field outside the formation
were significantly affected.
Shaped Curves (Bimodal) in East Field Seedling Germination Tests
A simple bimodal distribution, in this
case a mixture of two normal distributions with the same variance
but different means. The figure shows the probability density
function (p.d.f.), which is an average of the bell-shaped p.d.f.s of
the two normal distributions.
Jim Lyons comments:
I have read the seeds growth
analysis. The bi-modal effect is no surprise to me. There is a
lot of evidence (not yet totally watertight) that the basic
mechanism of formation is indeed two phases. Firstly, the
triggering effect which is electrostatic discharge to ground
(just like a lightning strike).
For East Field thus seems to
have been very dramatic and hence one would suspect that crops
would be affected directly by this process, which influences
growth rate in its own way. This is not normally of such great
importance. The second effect is the release of energy from
underground water - this is key to all earth energy effects,
certainly not uniquely crop circles.
There are a large number of
underground streams in East Field with lots of crossing points
between them giving rise to many possible centers for energy
release. The rising bubbles of energy which grow as they rise
breaking through the surface is the normal mechanism for crop
energisation. This comes from the microwave frequencies
associated with the gyration (circulating) of electrons around
the magnetic field lines. This is a standard mechanism in the
ionosphere which in this case effectively extends to the ground.
Therefore we are not introducing any new physics here, simply
extending its normal regime of operation. This process is the
electron avalanche which we are also studying here in connection
with other plasma phenomena.
One further point; you may recall me talking about the strange
dowsing results I was getting. There was not the normal marquee
roof shape energy distribution over each circle one normally
gets. The results were remarkable uniform across each circle.
This was quite unique! Also, I found it extremely difficult to
concentrate on trying to measure things; not normal for me!
Field is unusual in having many underground streams across the
field with many crossing streams. It is this arrangement of
underground water that gives rise to so many blind springs and
vortex centers which are each a potential source for a circle.
Hence we get many multi element formations in this location.
I am pursuing getting the water results ASAP.
Indeed the results of the water I buried
inside and outside seemed to correspond with Levengood's findings.
There was very little overall change in
Average change 18.3% certainly not
Even the buried control went up which is interesting
though not surprising. At least these results are compatible
with the general feeling that lots of energy was spread fairly
I would at least have expected under normal
circumstances to have seen at least one result near the centre
of a circle to have shown a figure of say getting on for 4mg/l.
Due to these results we decided to do
more tests. The first one being to send one of my 100 ml bottles
from the same batch as those I had used this year but which had not
The results were as follows:
Jim Lyons comments:
The spectrum analysis is very
similar to the NIR work we did earlier. We will use water and
identify from the spectrum which mineral is which and how they
vary in relative proportion within the formation.
Water analysis (ADAS SA3 test) over several years has shown
significant changes in nitrate levels for bottles buried within
formations. This is analogous to nitrate tests undertaken on
crops as well as soil. The mechanism for these changes are
considered to be due to electrical discharge effects which bind
Nitrogen-N & Oxygen -O together to form nitrates.
The situation in water samples is more difficult to comprehend.
Chemically the only possible process is for air within the
bottles 80% N, 19% O to be absorbed and dissociate within the
water. How this process occurs requires further investigation.
The changes in both Potassium and Sodium levels indicate that
their nitrates in solution are undergoing some dissociation.
It is now known that for future water testing as above, an
additional unburied sample from the same original source of
water is needed to act as the true base line value. Quantitative
changes on nitrates and their parent elements need to be
undertaken to very possible mechanisms. In addition, it seems
appropriate to undertake further sample testing using Mass
This will indicate much more clearly how
nitrate levels change during the bottle burying process.
The rest of the season seemed somewhat of a damp squib by
However we were graced with some beautiful events such
as the Ashbury 'Butterfly'. The farmer kindly allowed people to
visit the formation by appointment requesting a small donation. He
marked out the way into the field and the signs guided us to the
formation thereby making it easy for visitors to find their way and
the farmer protecting his undamaged crop at the same time. I wish
more farmers would adopt this method as it is to everyone's
The person who felt as though she had been flung down by
a wrestler whilst visiting the 07-07-07 formation suffered the same
symptoms to a lesser degree in this formation.
There were other glorious formations at Martinsell Hill, Chute
Causeway, Chute, Wiltshire.
The awe inspiring Escher cube formation at Sugar Hill, Upper Upham
also produced some strange effects:
"I'm afraid the Sugar Hill formation
has been the death knell of my idiosyncratic mobile!"
Visited the formation late yesterday
morning (4th August). Wanted to ring a friend to say it was
worth a visit, but could only get a minimal signal - took phone
down tramline, and no signal at all, so decided it was because
the field was in a dip. But the signal has never returned -
tried in various places all the way home; once got a message on
the screen saying Access Denied, but apart from that nothing.
Battery OK, just no signal. Boosted battery when I got back, but
nothing doing! Will take mobile into the shop sometime and see
what they say, and will let you know."
An addendum 3 days later:
Quite extraordinary - switched the
mobile on several times yesterday to check for signal. Nothing.
Same again this morning. Met friend for lunch and was telling
her the story of its demise, switched it on, and suddenly a
faint signal, but didn't last long enough to make a call.
again ten minutes later. But half an hour later, full signal and
full service resumed. So it had been out of action for about 48
hours, and now seems back to normal - though whether normal is
normal, or its own version remains to be seen!
All in all this was a most an
interesting and intriguing year and the water research results have
left us with some exciting results which will lead us to make some
amendments and adjustments in our methodology next season.
Again many thanks to everyone who has kindly sent me reports of
their experiences. I am enormously grateful to you all for taking
the time to complete what must seem a lengthy and awkward form.
Please keep them coming in as my research depends on you.
Due to your help I now have the largest
database in the world in this area of research into the field of
electromagnetic fields on living systems.
