Crop circle investigation, real or hoax!
What started as folly in the summer of 1999 has grown substantially throughout the years and made me into what I am today. I could not have imagined that an unknown phenomenon like crop circles could change my life to such a degree. A have done grain-processing and crop circle grain-breeding for many years. Are crop circles real? I can’t give you a direct answer. There are many factors to include, each demanding a great deal of patience and thorough work. You need knowledge about plants, their genetics and what radiation does to plants. You’ll also need to know what you’re looking for and what to observe before you can puzzle pieces together and make connections through out-of-the-box thinking.
Determining whether a crop circle is real or not is far from easy. Of course they are real! Otherwise they would not be visible in the countryside. Between real or fake, however, lies a world of difference. I will not go too deep into detail en will focus on the main point. It is easily identified whether crop circles are deliberately made or not. A grain lab analysis does miracles. You start by going out to collect your own grain samples from a formation. The process of assembling the specimens should be conducted in the same way every time you repeat it. You determine a midline and divide it into numbered boxes of 25cm. Out of each box you collect about 6 ears.
You proceed by collecting grains from all four cardinal directions positioned on the edge of the crop circle. Afterwards you go into the parcel, 100m from the circle’s edge, and take two ‘control’ samples. You’ll have to document everything precisely and know whether you’re taking summer or winter grains. Apart from this sample-taking process you’ll need to make a geographic chart within a radius of 1-10km. Specific notes should be taken. Are there electricity pylons, transmission towers, heights and lows, among the various soil types, the weather from past few days, also high and low pressure, humidity, wind speed, temperature, rainfall, ley lines.
If there are airports and other noteworthy items in that radius they should also be included. After this part is over the monastic labour begins. The commencement of ‘germ testing’ takes place. It is here the lab technician needs to understand that plants exposed to an outside radiation or foreign heat source will sprout differently opposed to those who haven’t been exposed. Seeds have a memory, however small that may be. The seeds in question are programmed to produce offspring in order to survive as a species. You require a climate greenhouse to setup and adjust temperature (between 18 to 25C), day and night cycle, CO2, air movement and humidity. During the germination process you’ll be able to ascertain certain physical developments like the germination growth and its specific rate.
Then you move on to out-planting the sprouted seeds in open soil to see if there’s any physical damage. Then the out-planted seeds need to follow the entire trajectory in order to reproduce seeds themselves. During the growth process there’s the possibility of observing physical change, like mutant formation, in contrast to the ‘control’ grains. But essentially what matters is the next grain harvest. Are grain samples from inside the crop formation the same as the ‘control’ grain samples or is there a distinctive difference between the two? Then the entire investigation starts anew.
After one year nothing is determined, mostly it takes another year to be certain. Why? The possible previous DNA damage is hereditary. To find a solid answer whether the formation is real or fake you’ll need to reproduce the entire procedure several times. The procedure to determine the authenticity of the crop circle is therefore not easy although some claim it to be otherwise. I’ve been conducting domestic as well as foreign crop circle investigations for years now. Foreign samples, which include English samples, are provided by farmers, landowners or people who visit the circles themselves.
