The "how" of Crop Circles"
jimb) i've put to files two drawings, one that shows how the cereal crop
deformed, and the other showing how it lays wafer-like in the field. the
wafers are about 6 to 16 inches wide and 1 to 2 inches thick. they are so
firmly packed down that you have to slide your arm under a wafer and lift it
up, so's you can get to the one below it. animals have been caught under the
waffering crop and have been crushed to death!
if you want to make one of these yourself. get a (fresh) cereal crop stem
being careful to include the root, because it deforms too .. an oat stem
from beside the road works well. put the stem in the microwave for 2-3
seconds .. longer if your microwave is small. it will produce the same
the electromagnetic pulse that deforms the stem is the same that fires a
spark plug! the process follows this course. a moving electromagnetic field
flows over the cereal crop and induces a flow of electricity through the
root and the stem from the ground up. it hesitates at each node until the
voltage builds enough to blow past the resistance.
as it encounters the root, initially, it deforms it into a twisted arthritic
shape, then as it encounters each node it: 1.) burns the stem on the far
side of the node, 2.) blows a hole in the stem just above the node, and 3.)
a chemical reaction reaction, perhaps akin to dehydration from the heat
deforms the node and causes it to bend over in a grotesque arthritic manner.
it all happens rather instantaneously.
the progression along the stem is one of repeating the operation at each
node in turn, deforming it and forcing the stem to the ground.
actual samples of this, particularly at this time of the year, can be seen
in most wind blown areas of cereal crop fields, or along any country road
where you can see wild oat or wheat growing. the road side crop is
characterized by the electro-chemically induced deformation of the root and
the nodes, its downed position, its wind blown appearance. if you extract
the root from the ground carefully you can see the deformation to the root
as well as
that at each node.
you cannot hoax a crop circle! if the root and stems are not deformed as
i've illustrated in files, if the crop is not waffered, if the sides of the
formation are not as sharp as a knife cut, the circle is not real.
