In the surroundings of Groß Gerungs are located various Geotopes as well as the „Steinpyramide“ (Stone Pyramid) which are collectively advertised for tourists by the name „Kraftarena“ (Energy/Power arena). Each of these objects have geomantic properties assigned to them.·   The impressive Steinpyramide ("Stone Pyramid", actually „stair cone“) is found in the new forest of Ober Neustift and consists of circular levels with a total height of 6,8m. The diameter of the lowermost stair is 16,5m and the uppermost is 7,2m. For which purpose it was built is still not completely understood. It is, however, believed to have been built by the Celts.

·     The Weltkugel („World ball“ – Earth) is 7 meters in diameter and weighs approximately 500 tons. It is a spherical Granite-Formation (Granite is the local stone) which reminds one of the globe thanks to its shape and is located in the area of Oberrosenauerwald in the direction of Schloss Rosenau.

·     The approximately 6-meter long „Kierlingstein“ sits atop four large stone blocks. Directly on top of the stone is a 4cm deep bowl-shaped carving, which is always filled with water. The legend says that this water has healing powers.

·     North-west of Groß Gerungs, near to the little village of Thail, sorrounded by trees, is located an eye-catching three meter high „Opferstein“ (sacrifice stone) with a large bowl-shaped carving.

·     In the Pierbichl forest on the way to the Klaus chapel there was a 24t stone block. It was leaning high up slightly towards the hillside on a large stone formation. The stone could be moved or jiggled slightly and was later dubbed the "Wackelstein" (wiggle stone). In 2011, after a hiker jiggled the stone, the stone fell down from the formation just after the hiker left. The Wackelstein of Harruck was treated as a natural monument and was a very popular destination for excursions.

In the region, there are also numerous bowl-shaped carvings in large stones resembling those made by Celts. I am also attaching a few photos that we have taken.

We are curious to know if you might have any information regarding the recent sighting or might have any idea as to its meaning. We also find the proximity of the crop circle to the stones and the supposed energy fields surrounding such stones very interesting.

Crop Circles-UFO's-Ancient Mysteries-Scientific Speculations

Could be scientology ? 

Just a wild guess....

  It is remotely similar to the Logo for scientology. Also it is possibly an adaptation that incorporates the last name of Thomas Szasz.


  Szasz was a prominent anti-psychiatric from Hungary. Scientology is actively anti-psychiatric. 

  Quote from Wiki : “Since theocracy is the rule of God or its priests, and democracy the rule of the people or of the majority, pharmacracy is therefore the rule of medicine or of doctors. “ 


and this gem,..

         “Szasz wrote: "If you talk to God, you are praying; If God talks to you, you have schizophrenia. If the dead talk to you, you are a spiritualist; If you talk to the dead, you are a schizophrenic." 

He maintained that, while people behave and think in disturbing ways, and that may resemble a disease process (pain, deterioration, response to various interventions), this does not mean they actually have a disease. To Szasz, disease can only mean something people "have," while behavior is what people "do". Diseases are "malfunctions of the human body, of the heart, the liver, the kidney, the brain" while "no behavior or misbehavior is a disease or can be a disease. That's not what diseases are." Szasz cited drapetomania as an example of a behavior that many in society did not approve of, being labeled and widely cited as a disease. Likewise, women who did not bend to a man's will were said to have hysteria.

He thought that psychiatry actively obscures the difference between behavior and disease, in its quest to help or harm parties in conflicts. He maintained that by calling certain people diseased, psychiatry attempts to deny them responsibility as moral agents, in order to better control them.  

From Szasz wiki page ... 

"In 1969, Szasz and the Church of Scientology co-founded the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) to oppose involuntary psychiatric treatments. Szasz served on CCHR's Board of Advisors as Founding Commissioner. In the keynote address at the 25th anniversary of CCHR, Szasz stated, "We should all honor CCHR because it is really the organization that for the first time in human history has organized a politically, socially, internationally significant voice to combat psychiatry. This has never been done in human history before." In a 2009 interview aired by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, Szasz explained his reason for collaborating with CCHR and lack of involvement with Scientology:

Well I got affiliated with an organisation long after I was established as a critic of psychiatry, called Citizens Commission for Human Rights, because they were then the only organisation and they still are the only organisation who had money and had some access to lawyers and were active in trying to free mental patients who were incarcerated in mental hospitals with whom there was nothing wrong, who had committed no crimes, who wanted to get out of the hospital. And that to me was a very worthwhile cause; it's still a very worthwhile cause. I no more believe in their religion or their beliefs than I believe in the beliefs of any other religion. I am an atheist, I don't believe in Christianity, in Judaism, in Islam, in Buddhism and I don't believe in Scientology. I have nothing to do with Scientology.  "

The inferior quality of construction implies this circle is  manmade, but it still could have a meaning. The aliens are probably using microwaves (the zig-zag lines here) to communicate with us through crop circles, and the primary message has to do with the number 8; from many other crop circles 8 stands for a date in the future, probably around 2038, when Comet B will strike the Earth under alien guidance.
