Here’s the very provocative and insightful Matthew Williams interviewing the Italian crop circle artist and author Francesco Grassi (http://www.francescograssi.com/) . If you really want to understand crop circles, drop your preconceptions about the mystery of crop circles and read Francesco’s book : https://www.amazon.com.au/d/CROP-CIRCLES-Signs-Intelligence-Encounters-ebook/B01NBN25CD/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1497314838&sr=8-9&keywords=Francesco+Grassi.
Francesco demonstrates very clearly and logically how modern crop circles have their roots with the famous Doug and Dave, who were inspired by the Tully saucer nest and how most of the tell tale signs of so called authenticity are flawed. He also demonstrates very clearly and precisely, how to make the most complex crop circles, in a way that befuddles even the so called experts !
From Francesco, “Crop circles are a giant circular stage on which many artists have been taking turns for decades at different times. Each one performs his number; some stay, others fade away. Some bring innovations, others recycle obsolete acts. There’s always room for everyone on this stage, and there’s always a new audience ready to applaud. Some stay, others fade, but the circular substructure is always there, firmly anchored with solid roots.”
If you’re interested in the people who are drawn to crop circles, you might also like to read Jim Schnabel’s Round in Circles (http://www.jimschnabel.com/ / https://www.amazon.com/Round-Circles-Poltergeists-Pranksters-Cropwatchers/dp/0879759348).
About a decade ago I came to the conclusion that most crop circles are man made and really lost interest in them in 2007 as an authentic otherworldly phenomenon. I’ve now made over a dozen for myself (and shared half of them publicly) and I know what can and can’t be made – even if I can’t make the best of them myself.
I’m convinced that the modern crop circle movement began when the now infamous Doug Bower and Dave Chorley began making circles in English crops in 1978. The inspiration for their activity began when Doug Bower’s heard about the Tully saucer nests in Queensland, Australia (which began in 1966 but also occurred later). The Tully saucer nests may well have been created by ET craft but they might also have been the result of as yet poorly understood meteorological phenomenon (not dissimilar to those proposed by Dr Terence Meaden).
People are very reluctant to let go of their convictions and this is especially true of ‘croppies’ who believe whole heartedly that crop circles are created by ETs. I once had the same attitude, so I understand their stubbornness. (You only have to look at people’s vindictive reactions to Colin Andrew’s 80-20 statement.) The only way out of that kind of ignorance is to listen to those who claim to be able to make them and/or to try and make them your self.
Many of the so called signs of an authentic circle can be found in man made circles. And I think what’s lacking is good knowledge about how plants are capable of changing under different influences.
There are obviously circles that predate 1978 but they are almost all very simple and may well have been created by ET craft, ETs, meteorological phenomenon or some other phenomenon. I do believe that certain simple circles have occured globally in ancient times at sites that later became sacred sites to traditional people and some of these sites may still experience the formation of simple circles.
It seems very clear to me, that 99 % of what passes as crop circles, is the work of exceptionaly gifted visual artists (except for most of the circles appearing in Holland – which are mediocre in appearance and being passed off by a certain fraudulent individual as otherworldly).
I encourage you to discover the truth for yourselves !
All you need to make a crop circle is a pen or pencil, some paper, a ruler, possibly some software like Geobra, a long tape measure, some thick string, a wooden board, some wire or rope and acces to a a field of grass or a crop. And preferably a farmers consent. Once you start, you’ll actually find it’s a whole lot of fun !
One of the best circle artists right now is the Italian Francesco Grassi (https://www.amazon.com/CROP-CIRCLES-Signs-Intelligence-Encounters-ebook/dp/B01NBN25CD/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8). You can see his latest work at Scalenghe Italy here : https://twitter.com/francescograssi/status/869502180579004418/photo/1?utm_source=fb&utm_medium=fb&utm_campaign=francescograssi&utm_content=869502180579004418.
Here’s a gorgeous new pair of man made crop circles (of that I have no doubt), filmed by Matthew Williams and friends using a UAV Drone Multicopter (Video 2 & 4 on the list). Matthew is now making what has to be some of the best crop circle film anywhere ! Absoultely outstanding images ! To me, Matthew’s work highlights the exceptional artistry and beauty of these man made crop circles. I’m almost jealous that I didn’t have a drone when I made my circles over the last few years (unlike the guys in Argentina who did have a drone who tried to copy one of my circles) ! Also check out the man with the big willey (which is not unlike Maree Man from a few years back, in outback South Australia) ! Drones really are breathing life into landscape art and how we see the world below !
Some of you will remember that recently I discovered two crop circles on our property. Here is the truth : I made them myself, to make a point. A point that seems to have gone unnoticed because the images I provided were probably dull and boring. No sexy aerial images ! Well done Jake on doubting the whole thing ! You were totally spot on !
We had had several simple circles on the property many years ago but in 2014 and 2016 I made several formations to make a very specific point – how stupid people are !
Here are some photos I took of bent stalks (a supposed sign of authenticity) the day after the first formation. This is a natural plant response to bending. They right themselves up again.
After I return I will post a video of how I made the circles and explain in depth why I made the circles and what is wrong with the ‘entire movement’. Crop Circles may have nothing to do with ETs but people don’t want to believe that. I’ve studied this phenomenon for a long time. I’ve mapped all the circles that are recorded in this country, I’ve played around with geometry and making circles and publicized a few formations that I made and I can tell you, human can make ALL of the circles that have appeared.
And Jake was absolutely right – ETs would not cause unnecessary suffering to plants if they can help it !
If you are really open minded, you will open your mind to the possibility that every complex circle is man made. This is the most elaborate, interesting and beautiful, large scale art work on the planet ! Everything else about it, is made by the human mind.
If you are one of my regular readers who believed these were otherworldly in origin, please accept my apology for not telling the truth. But I could not do this and tell the truth – even here and especially here ! The only way to pass this off, was to commit to one story. However I did tell my friends on FB what I was doing, so none of them were surprised.
My only regret is that I forgot to withdraw my post on the 2014 circles I made and that was picked up by several people who blew my cover.
Please, do not confuse the crop circle phenomenon with the ET phenomenon. They are completely different phenomenon. Sometimes there maybe some overlap but that is rare. My ET experiences are real and I suggest you try to have your own, so that you know that they are real. Being deceptive about one phenomenon (for a reason) doesn’t necessarily mean that I have deceived you about the ET phenomenon. I have devoted a large portion of my life to talking about this subject and sacrificed a great deal of my health. I would be a lunatic to do that just to pull off a deception ! I am interested in pushing people to understand how the human mind works and how the mind and we as individuals and collectives, create reality. Sometimes it is necessary to provoke people, to encourage them to step outside of their comfort zone and to perceive things differently. Very few people are willing to go against the grain and go against group think. I dare you to be different !

PS. The Argentinian circle that followed my second circle was a very bad man made copy. The videos of that formation show so many give aways – as Jake himself noticed !
Here’s circle 2 now (without measurements), with the apparent code in the second standing ring. I found this whole formation, really hard to draw, so it’s not 100 % accurate.
The symbols in the standing ring, appeared to be equal in length on all sides and fitted evenly into the ring. I have no idea what they mean. The second set of code symbols (what I called the filaments on the semi circles), might be like counting sticks and so far as I can tell, the counting goes something like this :
Right circle :
1:1, 2:3, 3:5 & 5:7
Left circle : (the first filament seems to have a full complement of numbers)
2:3.? (maybe half or maybe a marker):2, 4:1, 6:4 & 8:2.
Perhaps you could also put all the left facing numbers or all the right numbers on each semi circle together but I haven’t done that.
The measurements I took prior to posting the video seem to be accurate and I’ll post a final drawing with those on it in the next day or so.
I don’t know much about maths or geometry, so I’ll leave this one to people who are smarter than I am. Your thoughts on these formations, are as usual, most welcome !
Here’s some tentative ink sketches of the recent circles I found on our property. Circle 1 is reasonably accurate. Circle 2 still needs a few additions (the apparent code) and I made some minuscule mistakes in the outer spiral and the length of the filaments (I can’t be bothered doing it again !).
I was just browsing on Crop Circle Connector and found that a new circle has appeared in Argentina, that has many similarities with the new one that appeared on our property 2 days ago. Copy cat hoax or something else ?
Damned I wish I had a drone !!! Nice video of the new formation.
Here’s a video of a second circle formation that appeared 2 days ago here. I really haven’t had the time to do a good video or analysis and unfortunately the grass is popping back up already ! It will probably be unrecognizable in another 2-3 days. I’ll try to do a diagram over the next few days and also a diagram of the last one, as the diagrams that have been done by others appear to have some inaccuracies. Happy to hear your thoughts !
PS. A very big thanks to Sandor for your ongoing support ! It means so much to have others who support the work I’m doing and have faith in their fellow humans ! It enriches my own faith in humanity !
Regarding the recent crop circle on our property John Passos has said, via Crop Circles-UFO’s-Ancient Mysteries – Scientific Speculations FB group :
‘THE NEMESIS MYSTERY
There was another crop circle, recent, which appeared on 13 October in Australia, and that brings SAME MODEL OF CROPS CIRCLES DUTCH, the first, on April 9, and the other, recent, October 14, the day after training in Australia.
The latter (October 13) brings the same model, a larger central circle and four in orbit, but with a significant detail:
THE SYSTEM APPEARS IN MOTION!
And it seems even put “behind” our Sun in its movement, with all its “planets” in orbit.
What would be those circular lines?
Movement approach and alignment with our Sun?
Were the crops circles in informing about the arrival of Nemesis and its supposed Planet X in orbit, or other binary star system model to be known by humanity, as the largest astronomical revelation of history?’
This came out the day after the circle appeared : https://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2016/10/13/executive-order-coordinating-efforts-prepare-nation-space-weather-events. More significant commentary from me to follow at a later date !
