Deja Vu? Today we were told of another crop circle in Wiltshire next to the Neolithic tomb we all know and love as West Kennet Long Barrow. We were slightly surprised to hear of another formation in the same little patch of Wiltshire that has already been bestowed with not one but two formations in the last few weeks. Never the less team MrGyro was excited to hear about another circular jewel waiting for that first photograph to be taken and shared with the world.
We hurriedly prepared our flying contraptions and rallied the team, ďto the crop mobileĒ we shouted. Ok maybe not but you get the idea.
We decided to check the internet to see if anyone else had glimpsed this new creation. Someone had. A picture of the new circle was already out on Facebook. Ok, no problem, that's fine. But wait, are you sure that's a new circle? It looks a lot like the previous circle at our favourite Neolithic tomb. In fact it looks identical!
See for yourself:-
Now we were disappointed. It wasnít a new exciting design, it was a iteration of a design we had seen in the same location only a few weeks earlier. To make things that little bit worse we then see an update on Facebook saying that the design had been cut out by the farmer! We didnít even get a video. We were left feeling as disappointed as the kid that didnít get a date to the prom and had to have a pitty dance with the teacher.
We then got to thinking. I bet the farmer is annoyed. There have been not one, not two but three crop circles on this guyís farm. The aliens must really think this guy is open to communication from another world or perhaps the circle makers felt that the crop was, as Goldie Locks would say, just right.
Now Iím not fully clued up on the whole Goldie Locks story but Iím guessing that once she had visited the bears house and invaded their personal bear space she had the brains to think, ďIíd best not go there again.Ē Clearly if the little golden headed thief had continually broken into the bearís house and got up to her usual antics there would come a time when the bearís would have gotten pissed off and eaten the little bitch.
We can see that the farmer that owns the little patch of Wiltshire has clearly reached this stage. His frustration has manifested itself in the form of a genuine massacre of crop circles on his land.
Cut-outs at West Kennet
All three of the formations on his land have been defaced and now, cut-out. If you look at picture number three you can actually see the space where the other formations used to sit proudly, now replaced by a neatly cut blank square.
So why is this happening? Why are we seeing formations in the same field? Why are we seeing the same designs repeated just weeks apart?
Surely the message from the farmer was clear when the two earlier formations were defaced. He does not want them on his land. Now I know what you're thinking. The aliens do not answer to us mere earthlings and if they need to get the message through they will do so in any way that suites them and not care a hoot about old McDonald and his farm.
Letís assume that the crop circles created on old McDonalds land are not in this instance created by little green men (or grey). Letís assume that the military are too tied up with the Royal International Air Tattoo at Fairford (cracking Red Arrows display by the way) to be lasering crop circle designs down to earth from military satellites. Let us assume that these particular crop circles are the work of the devilish men who torment the believers with their crop circle fakery.
Working on that assumption, why oh why would they put more and more circles into the same field? Isnít it obvious that old McDonald is going to get angry? And why keep putting them into the field even though they are being defaced? I wonder if they also self harm?
While we are thinking out loud let us also ask the question, why would you repeat a design that had been used only a few weeks earlier?
So what do we think here at team MrGyro? Iíll tell youÖ
We think that the circles that are appearing in the fields next to West Kennet Long Barrow are indeed the work of men. We believe that these particular men are quite amateur and are not blessed with the gift of imagination and show a complete lack of artistic vision. It is our opinion that these men are driven by greed and the desire to make money from believers and general tourists that visit the lovely county of Wiltshire. We think that they continue to show no concern for the feelings of the farmer whoís crop they continually damage.
There, we said it. That's what we think.
To all of you crop circle fans out there we offer this piece of advice:-
Do not feel that you must part with your cash to enjoy the formations. Do not feel obliged to buy into any schemes that promise to give you access to the crop circles and lure you in by promising that the money you have paid is given to help the famers whoís crops have been damaged.
Remember that even some of the crop circles that give off that magical energy and have a special feeling about them may have actually been created by incredibly artistic, smart and intelligent human beings that we label ďCircle MakersĒ.
Crop circles are made to be enjoyed and admired by all, donít let people monetise them to further there own agendas. There are websites, including ours (shameless plug) that will give you photographs and videos for free. Print them out, make your own calendar or postcards, you donít have to pay for these things. Of course if you want to, that's fine.
We hope that we have not offended anyone, but if we have, remember that is just little old Team MrGyro telling you what we think. Itís just an opinion.
