In this episode, I’m joined by Matt D and Jeff as we tackle the mystery of crop circles.
We’ll discuss the history, the locations, the science, the human impact, the geometry and much more. We also offer up our best guesses at the end of what we believe is going on.
So find your safe space and enjoy this episode about Crop Circles!
In many so-called phenomena, we use science as a means to explain the unexplainable. Generally, by applying a scientific perspective to a phenomena, we can at minimum offer up rational explanations for what something is or how it came to be.
But when it comes to crop circles, something different happens.
First, it is important to mention that even among the most dedicated crop circle investigators it is accepted that most crop circles are man-made hoaxes. However, the designation of man-made formations can only be attributed to the crop circles that lack the scientific anomalies exhibited in other unexplainable formations.
And that’s where my fascination in crop circles begins. You see, as soon as we acknowledge that a portion of crop circles exhibit scientific anomalies, we suddenly are unable to explain the unexplainable. The simple suggestion of being made by man, suddenly no longer applies to these formations.
It is ironic, that the LACK of science in the majority of crop circles actually provides us with the simple solution of man made hoaxes, but it is the PRESENCE of science in other formations that actually leaves us with no rational explanation. In other words, it is the quantifiable data in some crop circle formations that actually allows this phenomena to remain a mystery… one that science cannot explain, especially when viewed from a scientific perspective.
But in addition to their mystery, crop circles also provide us beauty. They’re beautiful in design… they’re beautiful in their inherent mystery… they’re beautiful how they make people feel… they’re beautiful in that they appear in our most basic food supply… they’re beautiful in the messages that the symbols and mathematical geometric designs communicate… and I personally find beauty in the scientific irony they create.
And so with that… let’s begin unravel the beauty and mystery of crop circles.
So find your safe space, sit back, and relax. Because it’s time to get real.
