    For the real ones this is the only explanation I have seen, Roy Dutton on Richplanet; http://www.richplanet.net/starship_m...?ref=40&part=1

    Or

    It's been said the origin of the word circle was originally Seer Call (cir -cle) = calling in all seers, which is what the druids and celtics did when they needed a problem solved. Then the seers would stand in a circle, hold hands and meditate.

    Perhaps whoever is making these lovely and tantalizing symbols are calling in all seers. considered yourself called!

    P.S. Any thoughts on the one button that seems to be pushed down - what would that relate to on a computer screen or perhaps even a TV?

    As an ex-Braille transcriber I concur with the number sequence:

    192 192

    B 192 1

    192 192

    My only problem with it is, why? Why would anyone leave a crop-circle in Braille when blind people patently cannot see it?

    Is your internet speed reduced at the moment ? Will youtubes play etc ? It could be the extreme weather.

    TOT seems to be functioning fine for me

    Hi Spiral

    It has been like this since we went to new servers. When I add to a post, I don't appear to be able to define any parameters now i.e. Type Style/Size Embolden/Italic/Colours or add emoticons, none of this appears available. Also If I answer a post and then need to edit, it will open but does not allow me to save it, it just keeps cycling ad infinitum similarly with Go Advanced, this never opens! Broadband speed up around 3 meg on average and no trouble uploading from any sites. Just wondering if there is anything I have not Set or has been Reset since the change ... All the best. JP

    Perhaps, but given the way that language changes through time, I feel safer tracing the line back through circulus (latin diminutive of circus) from the Greek Kirkos (the circle as a geometric figure).

    In my opinion, this is genuine. You can see straight away if a crop circle is made by hand. They are very imprecise and 'amateurish'. The straight lines would be very difficult to create by hand for example. The circles can be done with rope and a board but even then the end result is not perfect.

    it will be interesting to see if an analysis of the crop circle stem 'nods' is done.
    if the bending process breaks the stem -- man made.
    if they are bent without breaks -- considered authentic.
    Life is an attitude.

    Anyone have a clue why the message would be written in Braille?

    I actually don't think Spiral was joking when he said that they are trying to point out that we are blind. If he was joking, I think he actually stumbled upon a truth. It makes perfect sense to me, actually. They presumably have a sense of humor, as most beings do, and that was a tongue-in-cheek kind of joke to them.

    And, it's kind of funny.

    I embrace my desire to feel the rhythm, to feel connected enough to step aside and weep like a widow, to feel inspired, to fathom the power, to witness the beauty, to bathe in the fountain, to swing on the spiral of our divinity and still be a human.

    No I wasn't joking, it seems like an obvious symbol/ metaphor of the sort used by artists & photographers.
