One of the most
interesting traits of the CROP CIRCLES phenomenon, beyond their exquisite
beauty, is the fact that

**they often embed advanced mathematical knowledge**, such as the graphic lay-out of*Chaos Theory*’s algorithms and Mandelbrot-type fractal sets. In fact, this mathematical knowledge is so sophisticated that it often takes a few intuitive minds a long while, and cross-examination between them, to finally decipher these crop circles. The crop glyphs clearly are giant enigmas and coded artworks asking to be studied and solved; and in so doing, it clearly launches a process of intelligent communication with Exo-Planetary Intelligent Civilizations or EPICs, using visual mathematics and symbols as a common language.
The sophistication in both the crystal-clear designs and the maths
involved, as well as our incapacity to reproduce the technological process for
creating them (beyond making a couple of fuzzy blotches), rule out any
explanation based on forgery.

In this respect, I truly believe that the significance of the crop
circles—viewed as graphic mathematical means of communicating with us
orchestrated by alien civilizations—has been hugely underestimated. With the mathematical
glyphs and their high artistic and esthetic touch, we definitely have a clear
message of good will and peaceful exchange with

**at least one**EPIC, showing us in the clearest way that we have some sure allies of Earth in our neighboring worlds.
As this means of communication seems to be evolving, let’s keep in
touch with the current formations and their analysis by crop circles experts.

Below is the analysis of one of the most stunning mathematical
puzzles posed by a crop circle,

**the embedment of the number Pi (**π**) within the**__Barbury Castle formation__**of June 1**^{st}, 2008 in England, and its astounding decoding by expert__Michael Glickman__**and some of his colleagues.**

MICHAEL GLICKMAN ON CROP
CIRCLES

**Why-Pi?**

**(THE 2000 SEASON)**

“But perhaps the narrative was advanced by another,
more crucial, feature of Avebury Trusloe [crop circle]. The date was the
twenty-second of July

*or*22/7.
Now anyone familiar with the simplest mathematical
ideas will recognise

**22/7**, the constant used in all calculations involving circles or circularity.*or*22 over 7 or 22 divided by 7 as the most popular formula for Pi*or*π
Graphic [Fig.5] shows the difference between “pure” Pi
and the conventional working 22/7 version. Arithmetically, they are very close
to each other.

**They are both irrational or “endless” numbers**. Apparently,**the pure version has been calculated to over six million digits**. The diagram [Fig.6] demonstrates the relationship between circumference (22) and diameter (7).
Pi (π)
= 3.141592

22/7 = 3.142857

*[Extraction of] Fig.5 & 6 – Two versions of P: Pi number & Circumference and diameter*

The authors of the crop circle phenomenon regularly display prodigious inventiveness, but I can see the difficulty in signing, “divided by” in the wheat. They simply added the 22 and the 7 together and assumed that, sooner or later, we would work it out.

__A COUPLE OF CONFIRMATIONS__The dazzling Picked Hill formation [Fig.7] of 13th August 2000 brought clear support to the Pi theory. This beautiful and elaborate design had 44 radial elements and 14 concentric rings. 44/14 = 22/7 = π. In diagram [Fig.8] eleven of the radial elements are numbered in red for clarity while the green triangles show a unit from each concentric circle.

__A 2001 hypothesis__I believed in 2001, as I believe today, that the authors and engineers of the circles are playing fair. They seem to me to have consistently demonstrated a rigorous integrity. There is wit, but there are no tricks.

How then was I (were we) to respond to this? Here was a clear demonstration
of will and intent. These events were too consistent and too clear to be
brushed under the carpet as “coincidence”. I felt that the reiterated
references to Pi were undeniable and unchallengeable. What might this mean?

I have referred often to the ancient conundrum of Squaring the Circle but I
want here to consider it more in philosophical and symbolic terms than in
relation to number or geometry. If the Square is the token of the world and of
material reality and the Circle is taken to be the symbol of God and the
spiritual realm then the Squaring of the Circle, or, as I prefer,

**the Circling of the Square is emblematic**.__of a marriage__, or at least reconciliation, between the two**might thus be seen as the master-key; a symbolic toolbox to aid us in our endeavours**

__Pi, the constant in the ordering of all things circular,__**to manifest heaven (or a small part of it) here**.

__THE BARBURY CASTLE PI FORMATION__Fig.10 – Barbury Castle crop circle - 1st June
2008 |

A large and intricate formation [Fig.10] appeared on
1st June 2008 in a field of barley below the Barbury Castle hill fort. Barley
is a graceful crop, which seems always to add glamour to a crop circle but this
formation was almost shockingly good looking. Beneath the beauty was a hint of
purpose in its elaborate stepped spiral.

The pattern was ten-fold radially (that is, like a
pizza it was divided into ten slices of 36°) and ten-fold concentrically (that
is the path was made of several arcs, each of which was a part of one of ten
concentric circles). It took many long hours to work out the meaning embodied
in the formation.

__The path__was swept outwards from the central black circle. Using diagram [Fig.11] we move onto the first red arc and we see that it covers three 36° slices. We then see the small red circle representing the decimal point. We note 3. (three point…) before we move out on to the next, lilac[-color] arc (one slice) and then to yellow (four slices). We have now established 3.14… and the diagram will continue to build the Pi number.

*Fig.11 – Barbury Pi Diagram*

The wedges, the pizza slices, were exactly 36° and the
concentric arc pathways were precisely 10’9” centre to centre.

This remains for me one of the most beautiful crop
circles that I have seen and it is an astonishment that, beneath this charm,
lies an elegant and innovative method of encoding the Pi number.

This would have been enough, but after some days, Bert
Janssen a researcher from Holland, discovered that the bridle path (on the
right of the photograph) formed one side of the square which squares the
circle. This is a miracle of precise placement. The intelligence and foresight
required to achieve this accuracy of juxtaposition is breathtaking.

Four years later, I look back on the Barbury Pi
formation with respect and wonder. I can recall few crop events that integrated
beauty and meaning with such assurance.

*****end of the extract *****

I suggest to you to
meditate a few moments on the enlarged ‘Fig 8 –

*Picked Hill*diagram’ and try to distinguish: 1.**The lotus petals**around the central black core (Take a point on the outside border of this core, blink and half close your lids, and look for all the embedded petals growing outward around this point).
2.

**The concentric circles**, starting from the center (It’s more easy that way). Then
3.

**All possible sets**: Get the whole picture from farther away in one glance, and move from one inner structure to another one, searching all you can find, e.g. the spirals clockwise and anti-clockwise, the spirals moving toward the center or out of the center, the lotus petals embedded into one another (by sliding slowly the point on the inner black border around this border), the concentric circles, the mandalas of lotus petals, and more. Then, the ultimate:
4.

**Watch how all these sets are dynamical and follow their movement**: soon you’ll see that the center is a vortex of dynamical energy.**Dazzling! Don’t you agree?**
