Crop Circles--Planks and a Rope, or Something Else Entirely

Julia Set below Stonehenge


 I've always found crop circles to be fascinating.  If they were created by man, why would they bother to create such intricate patterns, and how did they do it without anyone noticing?

Before I knew anything about crop circles, I had already written the outline for my novel. It is set for the most part in England, and this is where the majority of crop circles can be found. Coincidence? I don't know...  The main character's name is Alison, which also, coincidentally, means 'Son of All', 'Of Holy Fame' or 'Of the Noble One'.  I didn't know that either until after I had chosen the name, and then for some reason I decided to look up the meaning.  When I found out, it gave me goosebumps. If you read the novel, you'll find out why.

In my novel, crop circles instigate the plot line, and during my research into the phenomena, I discovered some interesting facts about them. In crop circles created by human pranksters, the stalks are broken and crushed by people stomping on them with boards attached to a rope handle. They use a stake with a piece of rope attached to measure 'circles' and ellipses and sometimes use surveying tools to create other design elements. The circles are also created at night to avoid detection. Julia Set, the crop circle at the right is believed to be a genuine crop circle. It was created in broad daylight across the highway from Stonehenge with people--including security guards--around 24/7. Witnesses claim they saw a 'mist' above the field during the time it was said to be made. Furthermore, a pilot had flown over the field that day and saw nothing, but when he returned 45 minutes later, he saw this circle formation. As a pragmatist, I always consider both sides of an argument, however, considering the elaborate designs of many crop circles and the fact that experiments using humans to recreate these elaborate designs have all resulted in mistakes being made over long periods of time (days), it leads me to believe something else might be responsible. But what?

 In what the experts deem to be 'authentic' crop circles, the plants are bent at the nodes and are not destroyed.  They believe this to be caused by a type of microwave radiation. Radiation has also been detected in many circles, which supports this theory. Circles have also been created in canola fields (although I have never heard of one in my native Alberta--which is FILLED with canola fields) and this is significant because canola is much like celery. If canola is bent at more than a 45 degree angle, it breaks. In crop circles--even ones created in canola fields--the stalks are bent at a 90 degree angle. No scientist, or botanist has been able to explain how this happens in the canola fields, and no human crop circle maker has been able to duplicate it. Quite often, the stalks in crop circles are also laid  out in geometric patterns on the ground, which is something difficult to do in short periods of time. Balls of light have also been seen before the discovery of many crop circles--so what are they, and where do they come from? Some claim they might be robot drones--earthly or extraterrestrial--but until we know the facts, we'll never know for sure.

So why doesn't the media jump all over this stuff? As I mentioned in my earlier post--the media outlets are controlled, and some information they do not want the public to realize. Luckily for them, humans tend to fall into the 'herd mentality' and the persistent attempts at debunking crop circles by the media has successfully influenced the herd to believe that crop circles are fake. Psychology has shown that if you repeat something often enough, many people will believe it to be true, even though  it has been proven to be false. That statement, however, brings up another topic--religion--but that can wait for another post....:) Happy Solar Eclipse Day!

They Live! - It's not just a movie anymore

They Live! is one of my favorite movies. It's campy, has some great lines, and one of the best fight scenes ever! (It's about 8 minutes long, and features Rowdy Roddy Piper, a WWF wrestler from the '80's) Besides that, the movie is a window that allows us see ourselves and society from a different viewpoint.

You see, it's not just a low budget Hollywood sci-fi flick--it's much more than that. Anyone who has studied Edward Bernays and "public relations" and has also seen the movie probably knows what I am getting at. But for those that haven't, here's the breakdown for you:

Edward Bernays was the nephew of Sigmund Freud, and the father of public relations. He developed strategies using the information on psychoanalysis provided to him by Freud and other such as Wilfred Trotter, to manipulate the "herd" into thinking and acting certain ways.  Do you really think you have free will? Not really--and let me tell you why. Everything you do, everything you say, and everything you think is a product of something else.  For example, does anyone really think women want to wear high heels when they are the most uncomfortable form of footwear in the modern world? No, but society had dictated that women look sexier in high heeled shoes, so women--trained to please men in a patriarchal society--wear them anyway. I could go on and on about this, but you should be getting the idea by now.

'They Live!' illustrates the facts I just mentioned. Society uses propaganda through advertising, television, the educational system, religion, and media outlets to manipulate our brains to think a certain way.  In the movie, a drifter discovers sunglasses which shows the world in its true colors. Certain individuals disguised as 'people' are actually aliens, and TV and advertising is all subliminal messages telling humans to submit, obey, and act in certain ways. This is done so that aliens can control, manipulate and use humanity to their own ends, and maintain order at the same time so that humanity doesn't start a revolution against them.  See the pattern? Does it feel familiar? It should. Everything you do, from brushing your teeth (coconut oil works better) to ordering fast food (which isn't food at all) has been dictated to you by the society you live in. And the society you live in is ruled over by individuals that need and desire to maintain control over you.

Is this how you really want to live???

Watch how Edward Bernays created the means to manipulate the minds of the  masses in the video "Century of the Self"

Why...? Why would I do it? I don't really know except to say writing this book was something I felt I had to do. It was almost like I didn't have a choice. Let me explain.

A long time ago when I was a child, I always felt like I didn't belong here. And by 'here' I mean this planet. I could never connect the way others do, so to make up for that, I immersed myself in books. I could relate to books. I could also relate to nature, and felt more empathy for animals than humans. Humans frightened me. Although I was never abused by my parents, the world to me was a very hostile place. A war zone--even in the nicest neighborhoods. I couldn't--and still can't--understand how people can be so cruel to each other, to the planet and its creatures. I could almost feel their pain. The only person in my family I connected with was my father. He seemed to understand me, and because of him I managed to grow up relatively 'normal.' (Is there such a thing?)

It's not that I am crazy, or mentally disturbed--I'm very far from it. I'm just different. Yes, every human is unique, but I am unique in ways most humans are not. What do I mean by that? It's hard to explain...  All I can tell you is that I see and feel things others don't. For example, I lived in a haunted house once, and never felt afraid. It made me sad actually. I felt bad for the little boy trapped there, even though he would wake me up at 2:30 every night.  For a while, I was angry because I need my sleep, until I understood he was trying to tell me something. I didn't figure it out at first, so for a while things would just happen. I would be cooking dinner, and  I would see flashes of him in my peripheral vision, and then I would hear balls bouncing in my basement. At Christmas time, I think he felt bad because one day when I came home, the stockings were thrown across the room. So I started having conversations with him before I went to bed, and I told him that he didn't live there anymore. He needed to move on. At first, he didn't listen, but after a week or so of talking to him, he didn't wake me up anymore. I knew he had found his way, and that was very satisfying for me.

I also know the power of the universe, because I have connected with it in ways that even I can't explain. Ways that I have never spoken of, and probably never will. Some things...are beyond words.

Physically speaking, I am in a category that I share with perhaps less than 1% of the population. I exceed average height, I am left handed, I have almond shaped green eyes, B- blood and genetically, I was born with 4 less teeth than the general population. (Yes, I wore braces..:). These characteristics on their own may not seem all that unusual, but together, they are extremely rare. What's even more interesting is that both of my parents are under 5'3", and I am a female over 5"8". Both of my parents were also Rh+. I am also highly intelligent--but so was my father.  Now, of course I could be the product of an adulterous relationship, or perhaps even adopted--except for the fact I have some physical characteristics unique to both of my parents.  Why am I so different?   This is why I wrote this book. I've always searched for answers, and I have always been drawn to the universe and the possibilities it contains. Maybe the universe holds the key.....and all we have to do is step inside and listen.

Introduction - A Gift From the Gods

     Who are we, and where did we come from? These are the burning questions that have plagued mankind since the dawn of humanity. For eons, we have looked to the stars for answers, and from the stars, religions were born. Religion provided answers--no matter how illogical--to questions mere mortals could not answer, and the people lapped it up like dogs. Today, with the advent of science,  many fundamentalists have quietly forgone biblical literalism and tell us that the illogical bits of their texts are mere stories meant to teach them. They are not to be taken literally. Maybe they're wrong. Maybe there is some basis of truth to those stories we haven't yet discovered. In a time where we know the universe is composed of billions of planets, A Gift From the Gods provides logical answers to what most believe to be supernatural, and brings the supernatural to life.

A Gift From the Gods encompasses the human condition alongside the unknown forces of the universe to bring together a tale of family, intrigue, aliens and scientific discovery.  What you think you know--might not be what you know at all.  Was 9/11 a terrorist plot, or was it something else entirely? Are we alone in the universe? What's real, and what's not? A Gift from the Gods theorizes on the answers to these questions and more.

Join me on a journey of discovery. Stay tuned for regularly scheduled excerpts.  I'm sure you'll enjoy the ride....:)
