ZetaTalk: Ley Lines
Note: written on Jun 15, 1997
In grappling with Crop Circle appearances, and in trying to find patterns that would explain their purpose or occurrence, a number of silly theories have emerged.
- Crop Circles have been analyzed under the theory that they are man made. This theory falls apart when confronted by the clean but unbroken right angles
that the grain shafts assume within the bent portion of the grain field, along with the utter lack of foot prints and the lightning speed of production.
- Crop Circles have been explained as the result of odd plasma energy, the swamp gas that is supposed to explain UFO sightings appearing in open fields in
broad daylight. This theory, which had a proponent or two until the complexity of Crop Circles increased, is no longer even considered.
- Crop Circles have been analyzed under the theory that they are a communication form from visitors, and represent language in math. This is closer to the
truth, but since all language or symbolism represents repetitive patterns, a constant in mathematics, some mathematical patterns would of course be
represented. Seeing the trees but not the forest before them, they miss the point.
- Crop Circles placement has been analyzed, their placement in this or that country, along this or that longitude or latitude. Statistical analysis inevitably did
show a pattern as even a mundane occurrence such as the placement of dog poop would show a pattern of sorts. This led to wild speculation that Crop
Circles are caused by some occurrence along grid lines, a manifestation of energy of some sort, or spirits required to stay on the narrow path these lines
represent. This silly theory gained credence only due to the lack of other plausible theories. Were this theory to have any merit, all the many Crop Circles
that fall outside of what are termed ley lines would have to be addressed, rather than ignored.
Perhaps, since Crop Circles occur more often in fields of grain than anywhere else, a theory that they are caused by grain might arise. Its more logical than the ley
line theory, and fits with the facts more closely.
