Real Aliens - crop CIRCLES symbols part 2


Of course, there are problems with the argument, such as that the formations bear little obvious spatial relationship to each other the way human symbols usually do. One is also hard-pressed to group the weirdly curvy "scroll" formations as belonging to the same system as the highly angular double-dumbbells; perhaps the scrolls really are mistakes or doodles. Or perhaps the only message being conveyed is "Watch this space, and be here next summer." Humorists have also suggested real aliens art galleries and real aliens advertising. My guesses may more wrong than I can imagine. But for all that, I think it is not crazy to guess that we are looking at a symbol system, not random squiggles.


It just may be possible to start grouping 1990's new formations into classes. Such attempts are highly arbitrary by their nature, conditioned by the viewer's predispositions (as are readings of Rorschach inkblots), but the attempt is worth making. It would be interesting to see what groupings other people make. Colin Andrews' catalog (see Appendix A) lists 65 formation types (one is a known hoax, so I don't count it.) I can derive the following classes from studying Colin's catalogue:


(Numbers refer to the formation number in the catalog)


Single dumbbells (21, 22, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 33, 36, 55)
Double-dumbbells (34, 35, 54)
Thetas (40, 41, 49, 50)
Plain circles with satellites (3, 5, 6, 17, 43, 52)
Ringed circles (10, 19, 20, 23, 24, 25, 38, 64)
Saturns (7, 8, 11, 32, 37, 46)
Rings (44)
Scrolls (45, 48, 65)
Triangles (47, 63)
Sports (unique formations, i.e. 26, 39, 53, 58, 59, 62)


To explain my nomenclature: I call the "thetas" so because their split central circle reminds me of the Greek letter "O" (I imply no actual con- nection to Greek.) The "saturns" remind me of Saturn with its moons (again, no connection to the planet implied, though it's not impossible that there be one.) I take the name "scroll" from The Crop Circle Enigma (which shows pictures of them on p. 156.) I name the "sports" so be- cause a "sport" in biology is a unique object.


Interestingly enough, it may be that the formation types are also roughly contiguous in space. The hand-drawn map reproduced in Issue 2 of The Cereologist (p. 3) shows that all three double-dumbbells appeared quite close to each other, in fact within an area five kilometers long and two kilometers wide, just north of Alton Barnes. At least six of the ten single dumbbells appeared in the Longwood Estate area, just southwest of Winchester. The four thetas may fall in a line (it will take much better data to verify this.) Two of the scrolls are quite close to each other, at Beckhampton.


The spatial-relationships idea is being pursued vigorously by Harvey Lunenfeld of East Northport, New York. We've been trying to obtain positional data for as many of the formations as possible, in order to create a computerized database. Harvey and his son Randy are now configuring sophisticated mapping software which will facilitate the search for spatial relationships, and also for correlations with other types of data. So far we've been obtaining our positional data from thumbnail deduction from photographs and other available evidence. The job will become much easier once we gain access to satellite imagery good enough to show exactly where the formations are. Access to some of the English databases would also help greatly, of course.
