I'd first like to thank the Crop Circle Connector for letting me use
this copyright photograph of theirs [upon which I've placed the first 16
positive integers] and the one shown in Fig. 2.
Before I attempt to explain how I believe this formation can be
understood I should point out that although it appears to be crudely
made, as Berat Sancar rightly stated, I do not agree that this means the
structure is a fraudulent creation. Accuracy of setting out is only
needed if the shapes being depicted are designed to convey, within their
dimensional relationships, certain subtleties, and I have definitely
found many crop circles of that type. But on other occasions it's just
the numbers of items, within defined areas, that are being stressed and
not their more refined attributes. I would add that a formation's rough
appearance to the eye may sometimes disguise impeccable geodetic
relationships that it exhibits to other structures it's linked to.
I had an immediate interest in this circle because it [and another,
which I've also scrutinised] started appearing 5 days after an
edifice that was dominated by the factor 5 i.e. the Long Man of
Willington structure, of July 3 [day 184 of the year], which I'm
in the process of preparing an article about, for submission to this
site. I therefore wasted no time in examining it.
As the formation had two phases of construction - on July 8 [day 189]
and, July 9 [day 190] - I concluded that, to understand it, we'll
have to consider them in the correct order.
I noted that the first structure comprised a ring of flattened crop,
which accommodated a set of 16 erratically shaped and, spaced
areas of standing crop and which encompassed 1 large disc
of standing crop that contained a small disc of flattened crop,
with a small tuft of stalks at its centre.
It was therefore apparent that the quota of distinct areas of
standing crop [ignoring the 'tuft'] was the prime number,
17 [= 16+1].
This proved to be of considerable interest because when I numbered the
outer ring's 16 areas of standing crop [which formed a conspicuous group
on the formation's exterior], as shown in Fig. 1, their total, 136,
could be seen to be linked to 189, which represents the day of
the year that the first phase was found, in the following, meaningful
Their difference is the prime 53, which happens to be the
17th prime [remembering to count 1 as the 1st].
In other words, I'd identified a numerical consistency between the date
the edifice was discovered and its internal structure [something that I
always expect to do].
But I also knew that 53 exhibits a clear relationship with a
number that has figured regularly in the news, all over the world, since
March 7 [UTC] - 239 - which was the quota of people on Malaysian
Airways Flight MH370 i.e. it is the 53rd prime.
So I was presented with the possibility that this strange, unimpressive
formation was alluding to the cited mystery and, tragedy - something
that I have found repeatedly this year.
The second phase of the creation seemed so bizarre I knew that, if it
was to make any sense, it would have to have the simplest of
interpretations. And having concluded that it comprises representations
of two entities, a spiral and a naive moon, I suspected
that our attention was being drawn to these two words, in that order
[i.e. as the depicted eye will be in the upper part of the head,
we know which way the formation, and hence the two words, must be
This theory proved to be of considerable interest when I noted that the
tally of the cited areas of standing crop behind the moon's oval
exterior is 8, which means that the 16 areas are split
into two lots of 8 - a relationship that could infer [for the
purposes of such a communication] the number 88.
I knew that when this inferred 88 is added to the above cited
189, which represents the day of the year that the 16 areas
were found, we obtain a prime, 277, which relates in a clear way
to 10, the letter quota in the words spiral moon i.e. the
product of 277 & the 10th prime [or '10p'] is,
6371 [= 277x23], which equals the exact radius, in kilometres, of
the sphere that has to be used for all geodetic calculations involving
formations [as I've explained in the past].
And as almost every authentic crop circle I've investigated, over the
years, embodies a subtle or a more explicit reference to 6371, I
concluded that this edifice is also likely to be genuine.
I then focussed on the words themselves and again identified something
The value of SPIRAL [as per the simple cipher: A=1…Z=26] is, 75
[= 19+16+9+18+1+12], and that of MOON is, 57 [= 13+15+15+14]. In
other words, when expressed as shown, the numbers are the reverse
of one another.
And as the two images the words represent are disposed directly next to
one another, within the formation, it was evident that when the numbers
are also juxtaposed in this manner they can define - 7557 - which
is, of course, a palindrome.
Knowing that the number, 189, which represents the day of the
year that the first phase of the formation had been found, had been
closely involved in the other relationships I'd identified, in this
analysis, I now wondered if it has a bearing on the above number,
7557, as well. But I was also curious as to how the factor 190,
which represents the second day of discovery, fits into the whole
The simple act of adding 189 to 190, yielding the prime, 379,
soon led me to even more than I was expecting to find.
I first noted that the digits of the number 379 exhibit an
explicit relationship with 189, the day that the first phase of
the construction work commenced i.e. 3x7x9 = 189.
I then discovered that if this product, 3x7x9, is
now expressed as - 3px7px9p - it computes to 741
This result would have meant nothing to me were it not for the fact that
the sum of 7557 and 741 equals, 8298, a number I'd
only just found in my analysis of the Long Man of Willington formation,
as reference to my article will confirm [I'm in the process of finishing
represents the accurately defined displacement, expressed in kilometres
and measured on the surface of the cited earth model, that exists
between two points that have a far reaching significance, in the context
of the MH370 investigation. It will be elucidated in my article.
I suspect, however, that this massive dimension is also being
depicted in this new formation. Each phase of the construction
produced a curious point that is marked by what I referred to, in the
case of the first one, as 'a tuft of stalks inside a small disc of
flattened crop', and I've set out a symbolic representation of them
below. I've also highlighted the fact that each location is engulfed
[predominantly to the rear] by one of the cited groups of 8 areas
of standing crop.
If we now acknowledge the fact that the two tufts of standing
crop could represent a naïve 11, which happens to be the prime
rank of 29, it's clear that this 8-29-8
arrangement could infer the described 8298, which also represents
a distance between two points - but a huge one.
I would therefore be intrigued to know what the actual measurement
between the two tufts is!
I also believe that there's an important philosophical point being made
here - the very one that I cited at the beginning of this article. One
of the tufts [the first to form] is a representation of the eye's pupil,
the very part of the organ that lets the light in. It appears to
be just a tiny part of a poorly made formation but it really
helps to define a dimension of breathtaking accuracy. So we are being
advised: don't always accept what your eyes are telling you!
I'd add, finally, the above described prime, 379 [= 189+190],
which drew my attention to the key factor, 741, relates to 66,
which was the day of the year [UTC] that Flight MH370 went missing, in a
unique way. It can be expressed as: 66p+66 [= 313+66].
