About this website

Michael Glickman on Crop CirclesAfter more than twenty years of focused 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! Anyone who claims “to know”, anyone who professes “certainties”, is either a fool or a liar.

This, I suppose, is as clear a statement of my position as is possible. I have been fascinated, indeed obsessed with this enigmatic mystery for an embarrassing amount of time.

I hope to use this site as a vehicle for my observations and analyses, my intuitions and commentaries, my surprises and, occasionally, disappointments for as long as possible. But never, I hope, my conclusions.

Looking back, I realise it is not simply the geometry that intrigues me. I constantly sense an order behind the geometry and an intent behind that order. The pursuit of the source and origin of that intent, its programme, its goal and ultimately its identity must surely be the obligation of everyone interested in crop circles. This will be the underlying driver of this site.

There will be no answers but I hope to amplify and clarify some of the questions.

My intention is to post a major blog every two or three weeks and shorter comments whenever needs arise.

None of this would have been possible without the work of my extraordinary web designer James Beeson at Lightworker Design, and my numerous pals, supporters, readers and members of my editorial committee. You know who you are and I thank you all.
