Crop Circles

A 2019 book The Energies of Crop Circles by Lucy Pringle details how people and particularly animals react strangely to crop circles.

People’s hair and body become very static electricity and and animals will not approach a crop circle.

I wonder if crop circles are connected to fairy rings ?
 
Like archaeological stuff?

Not archaeological stuff. In a past post, I had mentioned that when 'I looked back, then forward in time' (on 'Google Map,' going forwards to a different date on the Google mapping years) on a crop circles position, I was amazed to see that the field itself had been cropped and ploughed up, yet there were still defining remains of the shape of the crop circle left behind in/on the ground itself which I thought was something I didn't expect to still see, yet it was still easily definable.

soil disturbance or use can last for millenia. I'm trying to find out if the process of circle making in this case has this detectable result.
How do you know what you saw isn't archaeological?

If automated farming equipment was used to harvest the field, the knocked over part of the crop usually won't get harvested, and leaving that part of the crop on the field when you harvest and haul off the rest? that's something tangible left behind.

Now I wanna see pics of examples. :D

I don’t think that’s true. I’ve never heard of a crop formation remaining after harvesting. I have read the odd report of the pattern still showing somehow in the stubble afterwards although I don’t think it’s common.

Well, that's what I was getting at, automated harvesting machinery can't harvest grain properly if it's laying down. thus whatever remains after they do a harvest will be somewhat different, even if it's not full plants laying fallen on the ground it might be longer/bend over stubble that isn't standing up.
 
The suggestion is that something like radiation has been used to make circles, and future generations of crop reproduce the previous year’s formation in a kind of shadow form due to toxic soil. I don’t buy it. Likely the tromping of crop left excess seed in the soil which recreates the outline.

Good point. Header’d go above it eh. So when they turn the stubble in they’re actually seeding at the same time.

Simply because the pattern of the crop circle was the same as the marks on/in the soil.

No chance now, as this was some years ago - but when I get time to look for another, I certainly will and post it on here.

Only because the colour of the surface soil that was outlined in the Google map overhead pic shown up a difference between the colour of the ploughed earthen soil, but could still make see quite easily the image of the overall crop circle.

That /is/ an archaeological trace.

In what ways isn't it archaeological data?

For one thing. . . I'm not an archaeologist - but I've always understood that 'archaeology' as such mainly uncovers 'material' items that are discovered above, and below ground level, not so much in visually seeing the variation in colour in the surface soils, which I could well understand if surface soils were scrapped away to see variation in soil colour below ground level.
The only thing that seems to make any sense to me, is if 'certain crop circles' leave behind traces of the image in the ground itself by whatever means it takes to cause that to happen.

Archaeological technique deals with material culture, however caused. Crop marks can be soil marks, changes in vegetation, changes in water level... what am I forgetting @Kondoru ?

My point is that what you observed should be susceptible to archaeological technique, just as anything else presenting in the same way.

Archaeology isn't things, which is why , for example metal detecting, loses so much data.

Just one thing to add 'Frideswide,' the pattern that was left within/on the soil itself was exactly the same as that of the crop circle, and it was one of the larger crop circles with multiple circles in a set pattern - thought that was worth mentioning too.

It sounds as if it would be worth excavating (as an umbrella term). :twothumbs:

How do explain animals want nothing to do with crop circles such as dogs ?
 
Made me laugh.
