Circles of Confusion

                              CIRCLES OF CONFUSION
                       THE DETROIT NEWS ON OCTOBER 2, 1989
                                By Timothy Harper
                             ROUND AND ROUND THEY GO
           A rare set of concentric rings lies quietly awaiting the answer
      of why -  and  how  - English crops are being sculpted.  Some of the
      circular depressions measure up to  100  feet  in diameter, and they
      have been cropping up in southern England since 1976.
           LONDON - Behind the hedgerows and stone fences of rural Britain
      lurks the Mystery of the Field Circles.
           The puzzle over the circles - large round areas  where maturing
      crops have been  partly  flattened and entangled - is something of a
      modern-day Stonehenge riddle for  the  millions  of Britons who have
      been reading about them all summer.
           Amid local  media  reports  of  newly  appeared  circles,  many
      Britons have taken to making Sunday drives in the country to see the
      mystery for themselves.  Even  the  international  press  has become
           Pat Delgado,  a retired British  electrical  engineer  who  has
      written a book about the circles, said they can be up to 100 feet in
      diameter.  He has reports of circles being noted  as  early  as  the
      early 1950s, but  said  the  number  has increased dramatically this
           "Last year there were 98 altogether," he said. "This year there
      have been 240."
           The circles,  which  appear  overnight  and  are  sometimes  in
      clusters, have been  found in fields of oats, barley,  corn,  wheat,
      rye, beans, spinach  and  other crops. Typically, the plants are all
      bent in the same direction, sometimes with their stems, branches and
      leaves interwoven in intricate symmetry.
           "These crops are not damaged in any way," Delgado said.
      "They are laid down and continue to  grow  and ripen in a horizontal
           Delgado said that for years the circles seemed  to  be confined
      largely to fields  on  three counties in southern England, including
      Wiltshire, the home  of  the Stonehenge  standing  rocks  that  some
      theories connect with ancient visitors form outer space.
           This summer, however, the circles have appeared  in  many  more
      counties throughout England.
           Delgado said  he  doesn't  subscribe  to any "little green men"
      theories, but he doesn't have any better ideas, either.
           "I'm as mystified as when I  started  investigating  nine years
      ago," he said. "The only progress we've made is by  elimination.  We
      have eliminated whirlwinds and hoaxes. We have eliminated crop over-
      fertilization and the wind vortices theory and animal intervention."
           One farmer, Geoff Cooper, called a nearby British military base
      to complain after finding circles in his fields this summer.
           "We thought  their  helicopters were doing it on exercises," he
      said.  "But they sent an expert round and he said a helicopter could
      only make that shape if it was flying upside down and stationary."
           Cooper said one neighbor believes  the  circles  are  caused by
      hedgehogs rolling over  and  over in the fields, but  he  calculated
      that it would  take  40,000 of them to make the circles in his field
      in one night.
           Some newspapers during the summer  reported  that  the  British
      Ministry of Defense was investigation the circles,  but the ministry
      denies it.
           Delgado, who   worked   for   the   British   Weapons  Research
      Establishment and NASA on missile-tracking  systems before retiring,
      wrote his book,  `Circular  Evidence',  with Colin Andrews,  another
      electrical engineer.
           They got  involved when a fellow engineer asked them to look at
      some circles found in a field near  his home. Delgado bristle at the
      suggestion that he might be regarded as a crackpot for spending time
      investigating the circles.  The  fact  remains, he  says,  that  the
      circles exist, and no one has explained them.
                      Additional information obtained from
               the January 31st, 1990 airing of Unsolved Mysteries
           Of particular interest are two points, the first involves the
      focus of the circles in a general triangle around  Stonehenge with
      a majority  of  the  others  being  proximal  to  other menhirs or
      megalithic structures.
           The  second is  by far  the  most interesting especially when
      considered in conjunction with our DNAMAST file.  It showed a view
      of the base a wheat stalk which was bent as if the stalk had been
      melted in one area, folded over and allowed to cool.  DNA, a complex
      molecular structure present in all tissues, can be "melted" in a
      process known as "denaturation".  This causes the hydrogen bonds
      which hold the "stair steps" to the "rails" of a double helix.
           When the bonds are disturbed, usually by heating at temperatures
      beginning at about 70 degrees Centigrade, the rails break up.  If
      the structure is allowed to cool before complete separation of the
      rails is achieved, in many instances the stair steps will re-form
      in the identical pattern as before.
           Bearing this is mind, we can see that some form of energy was
      produced in the immediate vicinity of the wheat stalks which would
      bring about an energetic state similar to that produced by heating.
           This could possible have been an anti-gravity force which we
      of Vangard believe can be beneficially used on living organisms as
      witnessed by the many UFO contact reports where the craft occupants
      indicate they are of extreme age (1000 + years) yet look in the
      early 20's or 30's.  When asked how this is achieved, the reply
      indicates that the aging process is suspended or greatly retarded
      when the under the impress of the ship's anti-gravity field.
           However, should the occupant of the craft remain away from the
      ship field too long, the aging process would resume, yet could be
      again halted if once again brought within the field of the ship.
           See the Plenum newsletter for articles on the rejuvenation
      process from a Vangard Sciences point of view.  There appears to be
      a relationship between counter-clockwise spin, cold, north pole
      energy and specific wave patterns.  More on this later.
