Only the close-minded have certainty. I cannot approach the crop circles with a closed mind. The delight in the crop circles is in the not knowing.

About this website

After more than twenty years of focussed involvement with the crop circles I am delighted to confess that I do not know what is going on here. I have many ideas, hypotheses and speculations but I realise (and perhaps this is the charm of this phenomenon) that they are all hollow!

The geometric exercise, the Squaring of the Circle, served as a metaphor for a bridge between matter and spirit, the marriage of Earth and Heaven. For some years I have been intrigued, some might say obsessed, by these references to squareness in the unfolding crop circle narrative and so regular and persistent are these references that I feel they might have a purpose. 2012 was notable for its repetition of squares and cubes. This continues through the 2013 Season.
