Crop circles have confounded farmers and scientists alike since they were first recorded in the 17th century, and now physicist Professor Richard Taylor says the phenomenon is growing alongside advances in technology.
The complexity of modern patterns, which can involve up to 2,000 individual and elaborately arranged shapes, suggest that clandestine groups of hoaxers must use sophisticated methods to complete their projects in a single night.
GPS systems enables the artists to cover vast spaces with absolute precision, while microwaves can be used to flatten large numbers of stalks at great speeds, it was claimed.
An analysis of evidence in the Physics World journal reported that researchers had used magnetrons – tubes which use electricity and magnetism to generate intense heat – to mimic the physical changes in flattened stalks in some circles, which are linked to radiation.
Prof Taylor, director of the Materials Science Institute at the University of Oregon, said the findings suggest that crop circle artists may be using magnetrons, found in microwave ovens, or similar technology to complete their detailed patterns in the space of a few hours.
Traditionally planks of wood known as “stompers” and lengths of rope have been used to make accurate patterns in fields, with designers even using bar stools to hop from one flattened section to another.
Other theories of how the patterns appeared over the centuries include freak wind patterns, rolling hedgehogs, copulating couples and, in a 1678 report, the actions of a “mowing devil”.
More recently, conspiracy theorists have linked the patterns to UFOs or other alien activity, though some hoaxers have admitted to deliberately imitating flying saucer “nests”.
More than 10,000 examples have been documented in the past 500 years, with one new pattern now appearing somewhere in the world every summer evening.
Prof Taylor said: “Crop-circle artists are not going to give up their secrets easily. This summer, unknown artists will venture into the countryside close to your homes and carry out their craft, safe in the knowledge that they are continuing the legacy of the most science-oriented art movement in history.”
Matin Durrani, Editor of Physics World, said: “It may seem odd for a physicist such as Taylor to be studying crop circles, but then he is merely trying to act like any good scientist – examining the evidence for the design and construction of crop circles without getting carried away by the sideshow of UFOs, hoaxes and aliens.”

August 1996 Oliver’s Castle
Esistono diverse ipotesi sulla veridicità di questo video (si vedano gli ultimi minuti).
Is it a true video? See latest minutes.
Qui sotto riporto una tesi contraria, che tende a spiegare che qualcosa non quadra.
Here is a contrarian thesis: some things are wrong?
A ciascuno il proprio giudizio. Judge by yourself.
On the early morning of Sunday 11th August 1996, perhaps the most controversial event ever, occurred in the world of crop circle research.
A six petalled crop formation appeared beneath the slopes of Oliver’s Castle hill fort, just to the north of Devizes in Wiltshire. Not unusual you may think. But this time, the whole event had been caught on video.
Less than twelve hours later, a young man, initially wanting to remain anonymous, turned up in The Barge public house with what was soon to become one of the most hotly discussed video’s in the history of cerealogy.
The video was a short sequence, only some twenty four seconds long, but showing not only the creation of the crop circle (see front cover for diagram), but also the movement of alleged UFO balls of light. Could this be the Holy Grail of crop circle research?
The Video Sequence
The brief clip started with a wide view of the valley lying to the west. This then zoomed down to an empty field below, and then zoomed back to the original wide shot of the valley. This was presumably to show the local terrain and was filmed before the crop circle appeared.
There then appears to be a brief edit in the film, because it immediately jumps to a zoomed in view of the field (still no crop circle present) with two balls of light travelling from right to left across the field of view. As they reach the left side of the frame they circle round travelling away from the camera and fly towards the top right of the frame. As they get to about half way across the frame, the crop formation starts to appear.
First the large central circle appears, followed by the outer satellite circles, before the interlocking paths are laid down last. The whole creation sequence lasts just two to three seconds. Throughout the formation of the circle, the balls of light continue to move to the top right, before veering to the left and appearing to go through the hedge on the opposite side of the field. Their brightness appears to dim slightly at this point.
Just before they leave the frame at the top of the screen, a third ball of light appears from nowhere, seemingly from the hedge in about the middle of the screen. This moves rapidly towards the right, just missing the top right part of the formation. It disappears off the screen to the right, only to re-appear travelling to the left slightly lower down, circling around the formation.
As it moves to the left it is joined by a fourth ball just above it. Both balls fly past the formation and disappear off the left hand side of the frame. A second later they re-appear, flying to the right, obviously having circled round in an arc wider than the zoom setting on the camera.
One appears to fade out at this point, whilst the last one continues to fly to the right before leaving the frame on the top right, just below the level of the hedge.
The video clip then stops.
When I first viewed the video in The Barge I was initially impressed. In fact, who wouldn’t be? The video appears to show indisputable proof of a non man-made crop formation. Just what researchers have been looking for!
However, I never take things at face value and, fearing another Doug and Dave type scam to try and set the subject back again, I wanted to take a much closer look at the video and do my own analysis, especially as my professional line of work is with computers and graphical effects.
The first apparent flaws I noticed in the video concern the actual view of the field. At all times during the creation and subsequent flight of the balls of light, the camera remains stationary fixed at a preset zoom. By coincidence the zoom is exactly set so that the completed crop formation exactly fills the field of view without having to zoom out or move the camera.
In fact the camera shows a distinct lack of movement, almost as if mounted on a tripod. For example, the balls of light fly out of view a couple of times and no attempt is made to follow their movement – surprising if the cameraman was witnessing actual UFOs flying around.
If you get the chance to watch the video for yourself, use the telegraph pole in the field as a marker for movement. It remains in exactly the same position throughout.
Also, the action on the video seems to contradict actual ground observations. Visiting the formation on the ground, the outlying pathways go underneath the lay of the satellite circles, presumably being formed first. However, on the video, the satellite circles can be clearly seen to form before the pathways.
The shadows in the inner, large circle also don’t seem right, but due to the quality of the video I viewed, it was difficult to analyse them to satisfaction.
On 11th August sunrise was at 5.44am, which is after the time when the video was allegedly filmed. The sun would rise from behind the cameraman’s back, to the East – and don’t forget that it was filmed looking down the valley, so Oliver’s Castle itself would mask the sun’s initial rays. Before sunrise there would be no visible shadows, and in fact I’m doubtful if the light would be as bright as it seemed on the video, but this is my subjective view in the absence of an interview with the cameraman.
Although initially wanting to remain anonymous, I can reveal the cameraman’s name as John Wheyleigh (JW), from Bath. I’m revealing this because all attempts to contact him have so far failed, and I believe knowledge of his name may help others identify him.
Initially when he arrived at the Barge on the day of the formation he was very nervous and visibly shaken, fearing that the MOD or CIA may be after him. He wanted to speak to Colin Andrews or Peter Sorensen. Peter was in the Barge and was one of the first people to view the video.
Colin Andrews subsequently obtained the video by signing a contract with John Wheyleigh. The details of this contract are unknown, but it was alleged to allow Colin to handle world-wide media interest in the video.
Initially, people were impressed. Word got around and quickly the entire crop circle community knew of the footage. However, after a subsequent showing in the Barge approx one week later, when I was present, the general opinion was beginning to turn to doubt, especially when I pointed out some of my observations.
How did JW know where the crop formation was going to appear in order to preset the zoom on his camera before it appeared? Why didn’t he naturally follow the balls of light around the field? After all, they could be about to create another crop formation in a nearby field.
Both myself and Peter Sorensen decided to analyse the film in greater detail. We played it through on a high quality, single frame video. The first thing I noticed was that freezing on a single frame revealed that the balls of light were perfectly formed with no motion blur. As they were moving quite rapidly across the field of view, you would expect to see some kind of blur on a single frame.
A video film is made up of a number of frames, individual images being shown in quick succession, if you like. In fact, a normal video runs at 25 frames per second.
Generally each frame of video consists of what is known as two fields. If you look carefully at a TV picture, you’ll see that the picture is made up from a great many lines going vertically down the screen. 625 in all, forming a complete picture.
These 625 lines form two fields – one consisting of all the evenly numbered lines and the other with all the odd numbered lines. The two fields together form what is known as an ‘interlaced’ picture.
The initial sequence of the video, ie. that showing the zoom, seems to be interlaced. ie. both fields are present. However, the animation bit (where the crop circle actually appears) seems to be non-interlaced, only consisting of a single field. This then reverts back to interlaced at the end of the sequence.
This is highly suspicious and would imply that some kind of computer effect could have been used to generate the crop circle appearing – with no interlace.
This leads to two possibilities; Either JW was involved in the hoaxing of the video, by setting up the camera and filming the empty field before it was made, then making it himself or waiting whilst friends made it and then filming the completed crop formation before editing together the two pieces using a video mixer with a circular wipe facility and finally superimposing the balls of light over the top, or he was lucky enough to visit the formation just after it had already appeared, filmed the formation and then manually removed it in a studio on a computer, before again superimposing the balls over the top.
Out of these two scenarios, the first is more likely, and easier. However, in the interests of research and amid growing arguments as to the genuineness of the video, I decided to produce my own video, just to see how difficult to make it really would be. Some ‘believers’ had claimed that it would be impossible to fake without expensive, professional video and computer equipment – something presumably JW didn’t have access to.
Well, neither do I, except a home computer fitted with a PAL video mixer and genlock card (to output and mix computer graphics with a TV picture). If I could do it within twelve hours, then I reckon any hoaxer intent on debunking the subject and with access to a video studio would easily be able to produce it.
I set myself a limit of four hours, just to see if it was possible. To my surprise, my end result was quite acceptable, and would be even higher quality had I given myself more time. As it happened, I completed it in just under three hours.
Reproducing the Video
For reference, and for those who haven’t seen my version, I visited the field later in the day, after creation, and filmed some ten minutes of footage on a Hi-8mm camcorder. This was for my own research and reference. Being a computer programmer I was able to write my own animation software as I couldn’t find any suitable ‘commercial’ software. This may be one reason why people say it can’t be done.
I took a sequence of footage from my original 8mm tape and digitised it into the computer to obtain a static colour ‘scan’ of the field in question – in broad daylight and containing the completed crop circle. I then darkened the video to make it look like early morning. This was easy, using a standard ‘grey’ fade set to approx 85% fadeout. I then re-scanned this into the computer and ‘painted’ out the crop circle using a paintbox package – so as to obtain a field with no crop circle in it. (see below)
Having obtained a ‘blank’ field in the computer, I then wrote a small program to take a real-time video source (my original 8mm tape) and do a circular fade of the computer image with no crop formation. I did this in three parts to replicate the JW video. ie. the main circle appears, then the outer circles and finally the pathways. The computer handled all the animation sequence here and I recorded the output onto VHS tape. I recorded onto standard VHS tape and not professional tape so that the graininess of the copy would make the end result look more authentic. This gave me a VHS video copy of the crop formation appearing in the field. I now needed to add the balls of light.
Adding the balls of light was the easiest job, again, having written my own computer software. I played the VHS tape of the crop formation appearing (in approx 3 seconds) through the computer and whilst it was going through the computer I moved the mouse around the screen to trace out the movement I wanted the balls to take.
I could edit the path if I made mistakes. The computer stored the mouse movements and allowed me to replay the sequence, substituting a ‘ball of light’ for the previous mouse movements. I then replayed it and edited it until I liked the result. At this stage I could also edit the fade between video and computer, to make the balls of light seemingly grow dim or brighter depending on position. It would also be possible using my software to add ‘random’ X/Y movements to the path of the balls, to simulate camera shake.
Again, I replayed the sequence in the computer until I liked it. When complete, and I was happy with it, I re-recorded the whole thing back onto VHS tape – being careful to simulate the correct interlace information in each frame (this is manually controllable on my computer system).
The whole sequence took me just under three hours to produce from start to finish, and includes camera-shake and camera-movement to follow the balls of light around the field – which the original JW video did not. In all, I was reasonably pleased with it, and I could certainly produce a better version given a longer time. I deliberately rushed it because I wanted to see just how quickly it would take to produce acceptable results.
Free copies of my ‘computer created’ version are available by sending me a blank VHS tape and return postage. Only PAL versions are currently available.
From a technical viewpoint, the video is very well made. The movement of the balls of light is very ‘fluid’ and smooth. The action appears to take place in real-time and it looks impressive. However, when subjected to scrutiny and technical analysis, major flaws start to appear. I am personally convinced that it is a hoax.
Whoever perpetrated the hoax obviously had access to fairly elaborate video equipment and computers, although it would not require large amounts of money, as has been suggested by some researchers. I estimate you could do it with under £3000.00 worth of equipment. However, it is well made and was obviously planned. Was it an attempt to fool Colin Andrews? who was first researcher to be approached. Colin has a high profile in the world of crop circle research and any organised attempt by the hoaxers to discredit him would surely need careful planning.
At the time of printing, Colin has publicly stated that he too is sceptical of the footage, following his own analysis. If the hoaxers aim was to mount another Doug and Dave blow, then it has back-fired.
We can’t really analyse the video much further without interviewing, at length, John Wheyleigh, who took the video. However, he seems less than willing to come forward. To date, no one has managed to track him down to ask him further questions.
One further, interesting, observation was made by Joachim Koch, a German researcher, who noticed that the name of John Wheyleigh’s colleague was a certain John Wabe – an unusual surname.
Readers who are familiar with the Alice Books – written by Lewis Carroll in the Victorian Era, may be interested in the following coincidence.
Alice falls asleep and dreams, both “Alice in Wonderland” and “Alice Through the Looking Glass”.
Alice Through the Looking Glass
Alice finds a book in which there is a nonsense poem called Jabberwocky which goes on a bit but the piece we’re interested in is this bit; Later she meets up with Humpty Dumpty who looks like a big egg with a face and arms and legs.
“You seem very clever at explaining words, Sir,” said Alice. “Would you kindly tell me the meaning of the poem called ‘Jabberwocky’?”
“Let’s hear it,” said Humpty Dumpty. “I can explain all the poems that ever were invented – and a good many that haven’t been invented just yet.”
This sounded very hopeful, so Alice repeated the first verse:
“Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borograves
And the mome raths outgrabe.”
“That’s enough to begin with,” Humpty Dumpty interrupted: “there are plenty of hard words there. ‘Brillig’ means four o’clock in the afternoon – the time when you begin broiling things for dinner.”
“That’ll do very well,” said Alice: “and ‘slithy’?”
“Well, ‘slithy’ means ‘lithe and slimy’. ‘Lithe’ is the same as ‘active’.
You see it’s like a portmanteau – there are two meanings packed up into one word.”
“I see it now,” Alice remarked thoughtfully; “and what are ‘toves’?”
“Well, ‘toves’ are something like badgers – they’re something like lizards and they’re something like corkscrews.”
“They must be very curious-looking creatures.”
“They are that,” said Humpty Dumpty; “also they make their nests under sun-dials – also they live on cheese.”
(Now we’re getting there, folks)
“And what’s to ‘gyre’ and to ‘gimble’?”
“To ‘gyre’ is to go round and round like a gyroscope. To ‘gimble’ is to make holes like a gimlet.”
“And ‘the wabe’ is the grass plot round a sun-dial, I suppose?” said Alice, surprised at her own ingenuity.
“Of course it is. It’s called ‘wabe’ you know, because it goes a long way before it, and a long way behind it -“”And a long way beyond it on each side,” Alice added.
So here we have Mr. Wabe – a grass plot around a sundial with toves going round and round in circles like a gyroscope.
An interesting coincidence I think you’ll agree. Expect further reports in future issues.
I am in the process of producing a ‘making of’ video, illustrating with examples the techniques of video and photographic manipulation available by using computers. This will include, as an example, my reproduction of the Oliver’s Castle video. This will be available early in December.
There have also been some recent discussions on the Internet as to the possible visibility of a second video camera in the pan shot towards the end of the original sequence, indicating that Mr Wheyleigh had two camera’s setup. This is not visible in the copy I have, which extends to 24 seconds.
There are also rumours of a second, longer video clip available, extending to 49 seconds. Again, I have not seen this clip, so my analysis is only relevant to the original, short, sequence I saw in The Barge. Enigma readers can be sure of more information as and when I get it.

The Crop Circle Connection
By Joseph E. Mason
In 1997 an article appeared in a crop circle journal, written by two German researchers. By measuring and analyzing the various distances of the crop circle formations, they discovered that ancient numbers were revealed. They did not use the term “Gematrian,” but the numbers are basically the same.
The Gematrian wheel
Other crop circle researchers have noted the significance of the number nine in the crop formations. Nine and multiples of nine show up in dimensions, angles and distances between crop formations and various sites.
Carl Munck has written a few articles about the crop circles and possible Code connections.
I have found a number of connections, other than the ones noted in the above article. A notable connection was the Double-Helix/DNA Formation of 1996, which was 648 feet in length.
For a number of years the Mayan Daykeeper, Hunbatz Men, has been speaking about great earth changes coming. He said the prophecies indicate that the changes involve a “DNA repair.” He has been involved in “activating” the ancient sites, as part of this process.
While searching the internet for information about various the subjects in these articles, I found a page that speaks of Crop Circles and Mayan Time.
In 1997 a “Grid” crop formation appeared, which may be related to the Mayan system. An article was written about it called,The Strange Attractor Crop Formation and the End of Time.
We will be presenting all this information on these pages in the weeks and months ahead.
In August 2011, I was contacted by singer-song writer, .” She was undertaking a 72-day project focusing on the significance of the number 72 in all facts of everyday life — modern and historical, artistic and spiritual. In Jewish mysticism, there are 72 Divine Names.
I agreed to be one of the interviews. I explained to Tally that my method of study is based on dreams and coincidences. After discussing the subject on the telephone, we decided that I would explain a little about the number 72 and more about the ancient numbering Code system, found worldwide, as well as various crop circle connections. I created this web page in order to organize the interview material and display the graphics. The audio interview became a brief (22 minutes) overview of the material in this article.
Synchronistically, the interview coincided with my 72nd birthday. The video is now on , and on Tally’s blog.
Early Number Experiences
Ancient numbers first came to my attention in 1990, when I read The Inner Reaches of Outer Space, by the great mythologist, Joseph Campbell. There was a section about the ancient number, 432000, the time cycle of years in the Hindu religion, called the Kali Yuga.
In the system, there are ever-revolving cycles of impersonal time, with whole universes and their populations coming into being, flowering for a season of 43200 (or 432000 or 4320000) years, dissolving back into the cosmic mother-sea to rest for an equal spell of years before returning, again and again.
Campbell pointed out that the same period of years was given in the Sumero-Babylonian system, where ten kings reigned from the rise of the first city, Kish, and the great flood (see details below or read the 432 article).
Realizing that Genesis tells of ten patriarchs from Adam’s creation to the time of the great flood, Campbell wondered if that period of 1656 years had a relation to the Sumero-Babylonian account. He found the 19th Century work of Julius Oppert, showing that in 1656 years, there are 86400 weeks.
He realized that 86400 is twice 43200, and came to the conclusion that the 1656 years of Genesis was given in a manner to secretly disguise the ancient Sumero-Babylonian system number.
Campbell also mentioned that the number nine was associated with the Goddess Mother of the World and its gods. In India the number of recited names in a litany of this goddess is 108, while 4 x 108 = 432. The numbers all reduce to nine —
4 + 3 + 2 = 9
1 + 0 + 8 = 9
1 + 6 + 5 + 6 = 18 then 1 + 8 =9
Campbell also wrote of the Viking eddas that were found in Iceland which told the story of the Day of Ragnarök, the Doomsday of the Gods. At that time, 800 Divine Warriors will come out of each of the 540 Doors of Valhalla (800 x 540 = 432000).
This 432/864 number type can be found in an internal clock in the body, as well as in the Cosmos. A trained athlete’s heart beats one time each second. In a 24 hour day, that is 86400 beats. The earth’s axis wobble that causes the precession of the equinoxes is given as 25920 years. Divided by the ancient number called “soss,” 60, which was used in calculations, results in 432 (25920 / 60 = 432). Also note —
2 + 5 + 9 + 2 + 0 = 18 and 1 + 8 = 9
One of those strange coincidences happened some months after I read the Campbell book. I was inspired to write notes about the sinking of the Titanic in 1912 as a symbolic event. The idea is that it was a portent of the periods of stress to follow, starting with World War One in 1914.
Some days later, I came home from work and found a Jehovah’s Witness pamphlet on my desk. I started to throw it in the trash, but something stopped me. I found an article inside about a prophesy given in the 1800s, based on the dream of Nebuchadnezzar in the Book of Daniel. In the dream, a great tree was cut and banded, causing a period of insanity for seven years. This was said to be “Prophetic Years” of 360 years each, for a total of 2520 years. The Jehovah’s Witness prophet related this to Revelation 12, where the Devil is thrown out of Heaven, down to Earth. He predicted that this would be the start of the Apocalyptic cycle, which would begin in 1914.
I do not believe in a literal Devil, or conventional views of the Apocalypse, but I do find these ancient numbers fascinating. I realized that this cycle number and its base number also reduce to nine —
2 + 5 + 2 + 0 = 9
3 + 6 + 0 = 9
Around the same time, I read that there were 72 Divine Names in one of the Jewish systems. They were said to be used as codes in creation (see below).
In 1992, a strange thing happened as I was working the swing shift. The numbers 72 and 360 kept coming into my mind over and over — as the Divine Names used as codes in creation, and the Prophetic years. Finally, I stopped working to multiply them —
72 x 360 = 25920
I learned later that ancient people around the world had been obsessed with keeping track of the movement of the sun along the horizon, and that some of them figured out the precession, by observing maximum points of movement through many years. In 72 years, the maximum point moved one degree in relation to the background of star constellations associated with the twelve signs of the Zodiac.
The number 72 is related to the precession number in another way —
722 / 2 = 2592
5184 / 2 = 2592
Some years later, the number of half the precession (12960) became significant (see below). It relates to the number 72 in these ways —
722 / 4 = 1296
72 x 18 = 1296
The number 1296 is six to the fourth power (64), or 6 x 6 x 6 x 6. It is also 362. This number and its harmonics were found in the ancient code and has been coded into several important crop circle formations, including the 1991 Barbury Castle triangle, the 1996 DNA formation, the 2002 Mitochondrial DNA formation, and the 2008 “Pi” formation (see details below or read this article).
Crop Circle Number Connections
The crop circle phenomena came to my attention in 1990. By the end of the year, I began to receive information about them, mostly through various books and journals.
Each circle was 10.8 meters in diameter (note the 108 harmonic). Here are a few excerpts from the article:
“About 35 percent of the barley plants were compressed to the ground, and swirled clockwise. The pressure swathes from the centre of the circle expanded toward the perimeter. The remaining plants had clearly also been flattened when the event occurred but had now lifted back to the light in an extraordinary fashion. Later when we saw the circles from the air we found that they were at the points of an equilateral triangle and the circle edges were separated by 1.9 meters of standing crop. The compass bearing through the centres of two of the circles was precisely magnetic north.” [skip]
“The plants had now grown into a pattern consisting of seven concentric rings and forty-eight spokes. Each circle had the same form.”
Crop formations in young plants have this tendency of the downed crop to grow back upward. My first response after reading the article was to multiply:
3 x 48 = 144
3 x 7 = 21
7 x 48 = 336
3 x 7 x 48 = 1008
I did not know much about the ancient numbering systems at the time, but I did know that the number 144000 appears in the Book of Revelation.
I recalled reading Joseph Campbell’s, The Inner Reaches of Outer Space, where he mentioned ancient numbers, including the number 108, the number of names of the Goddess recited in India.
Some months later, I read another article about the Cheesefoot Head crop formation. When a triangle is drawn between the centers of the three circles, it encloses twelve spokes of each circle. I realized the total spokes within the triangle would be 3 x 12 = 36, and that the number of spokes left in each circle,– not including the 12 enclosed in the triangle — would also be 36, as 48 – 12. Of course, 4 x 36 is also 144.
I soon read of the work of Professor Gerald Hawkins. He found that various crop circle formations have ratios within the geometry that match the diatonic scale of music, corresponding to the white key notes on a piano. The Cheesefoot Head formation, above, became the basis of “Theorem I.”
I realized that 144, is half of 72, and that the number reduces to nine, as does 1008, which can figure as 72 x 14.
Carl Munck, the Gematrian Wheel and the Explosion of Numbers
In 1994, a corresponding friend sent some of my material about the numbers to Carl Munck, who then contacted me and informed me about “The Code,” and Gematria — the ancient system of numbers. To me, it was like an explosion of numbers. There are many systems of Gematria. The one discussed here is special, and the most ancient.
These types of “Gematrian” numbers are found in ancient myths and religions, including the Bible. The numbers were used in systems of weights and measures (metrology) by ancient peoples, including the Greeks, the Egyptians, the Persians, the Babylonians and the Romans. The ancient Mayans used Gematrian numbers in their very accurate timekeeping.
The Code system uses mathematical constants, such as pi and the radian. The system also uses conventions that are still in use, such as the 360 degree circle, 60 minute degree, 60 second minute, the base-10 numbering system, the 12-inch foot, and the 5280 foot mile.
The ancient, prehistoric numbering system that was in place when written history began.
Carl found the numbers to contain just two tangents, (ignoring ending zeors and the +/- signs) which suggest sine waves. When the two tangents are multiplied, the number produced is the square root of five — which itself is the tangent of the speed of light in air!
All Gematrian numbers add to nine or a multiple of nine and are divisible by 9. All the numbers end in 0, 2, 4, 6, or 8.
The number 72 is part of this doubling sequence —
9, 18, 36, 72, 144, 288, 576, 1152, 2304
Many of the Gematrian numbers have Alpha or Word meanings. For example —
144 = Light
288 = Double Light
432 = Consecration
576 = Prophecy and Gospel
1152 = Witness
5184 (72 squared) = Victory over the Beast
When evaluating the meaning of Gematrian numbers, it is often useful to ignore the zeros. For example, 108, 1008, and 1080 seem to be related.
Some months after being contacted by Carl, I had a dream of a circle divided into pie-shaped parts, and knew it was about Gematrian numbers. I drew a circle and then put the numbers on marks around it based on the tangents. It turned out to be a 360 degree circle divided into ten divisions of 36 degrees each. I placed Grandmother Spider in this rendition of the “Gematrian Wheel” to mark the various points with non-zero tangents —
|The Gematrian Wheel with Grandmother Spider|
In this diagram, the horizontal dashed line between 270 degrees and 90 degrees is not intended to be one of the 10 Gematrian points, but is shown for reference.
Each divisional section has 6 subsections of 6 degrees each, for a total of 60 small subsections. Recall that 60 is the Babylonian soss. Each full circuit around the wheel produces the same numbers multiplied by 10. (360, 720, 1080, etc.) This can be continued into more circuits, adding more digits, so that 144000, for instance, could be considered as 400 times around the wheel.
It seemed coincidental that the circle (or wheel) had ten parts, because two crop formations had appeared in 1993 and 1994 — the Bythorn Mandala and the Spider Web formations. Both were circular patterns divided into ten sections —
|Bythorn Mandala Crop Formation
3 September 1993
|Spider Web Crop Formation
10-11 August 1994
Carl informed me that ten is the base harmonic of the planet earth, found at its very core.
The Bythorn Mandala formation was “coincidentally” very similar to a diagram in a book that I had brought home from the library some months prior. The title is The Tantric Way: Art, Science, Ritual, by Ajit Mookerjee and Madhu Khanna. The diagram is called a Yantra to Kali —
|Yantra to Kali|
The crop formation had ten petals, while the Kali Yantra has 8 and 16. Kali is the Goddess of death or destruction creation, consort of Shiva. The symbolism relates to something like a karmic cleansing. As previously stated, we are presently in the age of the Kali Yuga, said to have a duration of 432000 years. In time, it became clear to me that Kali corresponds to the harlot of Revelation 17.
One interpretation of the Bythorn Mandala crop formation was that it represents the third chakra, which is symbolized by a lotus flower with ten petals.
More Five-Fold/Ten-Fold Crop Formations
Many similar five-fold/ten-fold fold type crop formations have appeared since 1994. These are examples —

|St Martin’s Chapel

Sometimes the place name of the location where a crop circle appears seems to be symbolically meaningful — in this case St Martin’s Chapel. Martinof Tours is the Fourth Century Christian Saint, who was formerly a soldier in the Roman army. He became famous for cutting his military cloak in half and sharing it with a scantily dressed beggar. That night, Martin dreamed of Jesus wearing the half-cloak he had given to the poor man. He heard Jesus say to the angels: “Here is Martin, the Roman soldier who is not baptized; he has clad me.”
The name, Martin, has the meaning — Warrior of Mars. As I was updating this article, I found another ten-fold crop formation that appeared atMartinsell —

Interestingly, Mars is associated with the fifth sphere of the Tree of Life, which is symbolically related to the five-pointed star —
Two important bits of information crossed my path in the mid 1990s. According to Andy Thomas, in his excellent book, Vital Signs, on page 71 —
“Observing previous pentagram formations, Michael Glickman had noticed that in every case one point of the star would point precisely south.”
This became significant to me when I read page 5 of H. P. Blavatsky’s, The Secret Doctrine. A five-pointed star with two points (or horns) facing upward is an esoteric symbol of the Kali Yuga time cycle, the Age of Iron —

I found another circle with double five-pointed stars inside — the Earth as viewed from the North Pole. The image of the map, below, is from David Flynn’s book, Cydonia: The Secret Chronicles of Mars —
The caption reads:
Megaliths on the earth seem to be related to each other, built along a “grid” composed of two pentagrams within the circle of the equator. All the monuments fall into place along this grid if one pentagram is “anchored” at Giza & one at the Prime Meridian at 0 longitude. Too many major architectural structures exist along this dual-pentagram design for it to be mere coincidence. This design predicts where megalithic structures will be found, as well.
David is the creator of the great site —
Da Vinci Code
Tally informed me that the number “72” was recently found under the arched bridge in the backdrop of Leonardo da Vinci’s famous Mona Lisa painting. Leonardo’s drawing of the Vitruvian Man incorporates the geometry of a five-pointed star inside a circle (below, left) —
A Vitruvian Man-Butterfly crop circle formation appeared in the Netherlands in August 2009 (above right).
The Pi Crop Circle Formation
On 1 June 2008, the “Pi” crop circle formation appeared at Barbury Castle —
Astrophysicist, Mike Reed, deciphered the puzzling formation, showing that it is a pictorial representation of the first ten digits of Pi. The diagram on the left, below, illustrates the idea by color code —
Significantly, it is yet another circle divided into ten parts. I created the image on the right, above, to show the placement of the two 5-pointed stars and the Gematrian numbers. It is also significant that when the first ten digits of Pi are multiplied, the result is Gematrian —
3 x 1 x 4 x 1 x 5 x 9 x 2 x 6 x 5 x 4 = 129600
It is 360 squared or 6 to the fourth power times 100. It is also 10 times half the Precession. This number, and its harmonics has repeatedly appeared coded in crop circle formations. It is also known to appear in the ancient code. See —
A single star divides the 360 degree circle into five parts of 72 degrees each, giving the series, 72, 144, 216, 288, and 360. With two stars, the circle is marked at 36, 72, 108, 144, 180, 216, 252, 288, 324, and 360. The numbers continue with more revolutions around the wheel. For example, the second revolution marks the numbers 396, 432, 468, 504, 540, 576, 612, 648, 684, and 720.
The first example of the 1296 type number to appear in the crops happened on 17 July 1991, at Barbury Castle —
17 July 1991
From the center of the triangle to its lower-right corner, the angle was 120 degrees. From that point to the center of the ratchet spiral the angle was 108 degrees, i.e., Gematrian. Multiplying the two numbers —
120 x 108 = 12960 (72 x 180)
12960 = 64 x 10
The six arches of the ratchet spiral suggest 6 Ages of 2160 years each, which total 12960 years (half the precession).
This is a large diagram of the 1991 Barbury Castle formation, with details —
The angles mentioned above are —
120 degrees = X and A
108 degrees = A and Y
Incredibly, a friend at work had a dream of being on an airliner driving on a roadway where highways 120 and 108 run together! The context of the dream fit well with the idea of a changing of the Ages.
One theory about the 1991 Barbury Castle crop formation is that it represents the lower triad of the Tree of Life (which appeared as a crop formation in 1997). It is also thought to represent a tetrahedron, a three-dimensional figure composed of four triangular faces. It is said to be the simplest three-dimensional object, and therefore the first solid form created.
Carl Munck states that the the tetrahedron is 720. It shows up in the ancient code. This is figured by the four triangular faces, where each triangle has three angles totaling 180 degrees —
4 x 180 = 720
It may well be that the number 72 and its harmonic, 720, are representative of the creation process itself. See —
DNA 1296 Crop Circle Connections
In late 1995, a work colleague, Jeff, dreamed of being on a spiral staircase with maintenance mechanics on every rung, each having a tool box. I was amazed by the dream and informed Jeff that the dream seemed to be about the “DNA repair.”
In January 1996, I wrote a letter to the Editor of the “Sussex Circular” magazine, telling of Jeff’s DNA dream. I included information about Munck’s Code and the ancient Gematrian numbering system. Around 17 June 1996, a crop circle formation appeared at Alton Barnes, Wiltshire –
|DNA Crop Formation at Alton Barnes, Wiltshire
17 June 1996
It was widely reported that the formation represents DNA, with its double helix. The formation was 648 feet in length, which is half of 1296, and another ancient Gematrian number. The base-ten harmonic, 6480, is one fourth of the precession in years.
In my January 1996 letter to the “Sussex Circular” magazine, I had mentioned the number 648. The number 666 is equally between the Gematrian numbers 648 and 684. The primary Gematrian numbers are evenly devisable by 36, while the “in between” types, such as 666, are evenly devisable by 18.
648 (9 x 72) feet long
The 2002 Mitochondrial DNA Crop Circle Formation
Around August 28,2002, tube torus type crop circle formation appeared at Crooked Soley , near Hungerford, Wiltshire —
|Mitochondrial DNA Crop Formation
28 August 2002
The formation is said to represent mitochondrial DNA. There were a total of 1296 little diamonds making up the snake-like pattern. It is based on apattern with 72 sets of curves.
1296 (18 x 72) little diamond shapes
1296 = 6 x 6 x 6 x 6
1296 = 362
1296 = 64
The number 1296 is, of course, twice 648, which was the length in feet of the 1996 DNA crop circle. There were 144 curved lines within the tube torus type shape, 72 in one direction, and 72 in the other, making up the net-like pattern, which resembles snake skin.
The twisted ladder type pattern, which resembles the double helix of DNA in a circular design, was composed of 504 little diamond shapes of standing crop. There were 792 little diamond shapes in the torus with laid down crops (504 + 792 = 1296).
The significance of these numbers were quite familiar to me by the time I read the Crooked Soley book, as indicated by previous parts of this article. Adding zeros to the end of the above numbers produces familiar results —
5040 — factorial of 7 and combined earth-moon radius, related to Plato’s Atlantis
7920 — diameter of the Earth in miles
12960 — half the number of years of precession, or six ages
5040 = 1 x 2 x 3 x 4 x 5 x 6 x7
7920 = 8 x 9 x 10 x 11

The Decagon of DNA
I pointed out in a previous article on this subject, that a cross-sectional view from the top of the DNA double helix forms a decagon, a 10-sided figure, like two pentagons, with one rotated by 36 degrees from the other. Each spiral of the double helix traces out the shape of a pentagon. The shape, as with the five-pointed star (pentagram), features the Phi ratio or Golden Section. This is an example indicating the geometry —
This information about DNA was reported in my article, dated September 3, 2009 —
Just under two years later, another crop formation appeared with a similar decagon pattern.
The 2011 DNA Decagon Crop Formation
Around 15 August 2011, a crop formation appeared at Jubilee Plantation. It had a decagon pattern in the central portion —

The Bad Kissingen formation (above, center) has two sets of 4, 3, 2 sequences of small circles on each side, perhaps suggesting the cycle of time number 432. The Stantonbury Hill Yin-Yang formation (above, right) has twelve radial lines in the outer ring, each crossed by three small lines, indicating 12 x 3 = 36.

If the six sides of a cube are imagined, the suggested number is 18 x 6 = 108. The Boxley formation (above, right) has twelve major outer star points with three projections on each for a total of 36.

The Watchfield Wind Farm formation (above) had three gear-wheels, each with 18 teeth. The middle circle had a ring of 14 small circles. This could figure as 3 x 18 x 14 = 756. Jerry Iuliano writes —
Half of 756 (378) is the Aztec Hunab Number and the Roman Measures.
Indonesian 72 Connection
In February 2011, I wrote an article about the crop formations that appeared in Indonesia — not far from two ancient sites — Prambanan and Borobudur. I included this statement at the beginning —
Note: 504 = 72 x 7
This is also on the Wikipedia page about Borobudur —
Note: 432 = 72 x 6
I found the Borobudur Temple on Google Earth and captured this image —
The three concentric rings of stupas (32, 24 and 16) for the total of 72 can be seen.
Stonehenge as the Gematrian Wheel
Not long after the development of the Gematrian Wheel, I realized that Stonehenge, in its early years, fits well with it. The original Sarsen Circle was constructed of 60 stones — 30 uprights and 30 cross-pieces, for a total of 60 stones in a circle. For this article, I prepared these images to illustrate —
and Overhead Diagram

|Stonehenge Diagram With
I searched for a diagram of Stonehenge and found the illustration on the left, above. “Coincidentally,” the line at the bottom is marked with the Gematrian numbers, 0, 36, 72 and 108. These are distances in feet. I created the diagram on the right, above, to show the Gematrian points among the 60 stones.
Connections to the Universe
A dodecahedron is a three-dimensional object with 12 pentagonal faces. The above image, from Nature Journal, certainly reminded me of the DNA dodecagon and the Gematrian Wheel.
The Shemhamphorasch and the 72 Divine Names
Early in this article, I mentioned the 72 Divine Names. One form is like this —
The Shemhamphorasch is similar. This is excerpted from the Wikipedia article —
The Shemhamphorasch is a corruption of the Hebrew term Shem ha-Mephorash, which was used in tannaitic times to refer to the Tetragrammaton. In early Kabbalah the term was used to designate sometimes a seventy-two Letter name for God, and sometimes a forty two Letter name.
Shem ha-Mephoresh: a Hebrew phrase meaning “the Seventy-two-fold Name of God,” said to be an extension of the Tetragrammaton. A divine name of 216 letters derived from three verses in the Biblical book of Exodus (Exodus 14:19-21). One of the systems of temurah is used on these verses to obtain 72 names of God, which are each assigned to one of the 72 quinances (sets of five degrees) of the Zodiac. The names of 72 angels are formed by adding the suffixes “yah” or “el” to the 72 God-names. [End of excerpts]
The 72 quinances (sets of five degrees) of the Zodiac figures as —
360 / 72 = 5
The Nineveh Constant
This section is taken from this article: http://www.greatdreams.com/numbers/jerry/sunspot.htm
Another astonishing fact is that a Sumerian clay tablet named after its finding place Nineveh has been found that contains a cosmological constant with a value of 70 * 60^7 (seventy times sixty raised to the power of seven). That’s 1959552 followed by 14 zeros
The Nineveh constant, after being decoded by NASA astrophysicist Maurice Chatelain, perfectly described all the orbital times of our planets down to a second if whole fractions of this number are taken. For example Pluto has a perfect 25000 cycles in the Nineveh constant and Halley’s Comet has 81.000 cycles. Since the Nineveh constant’s measure is the second, it equates to a cycle time of roughly 6.2 million years.
One interesting multiple of the Nineveh Constant (without the ending zeros) is:
The number 378 was a Roman Measure, and a distance used by the Aztecs called the Hunab. See —
Note: 82944 = 2882
378 + 288 = 666
Jerry mentions the number 5184 (722) in this article:
There are various degree angles given, all in the vicinity of 51.85 degrees, which different scientists have determined represent the intended, finite angle of the Great Pyramid.
Because of the weather worn and sand lashed condition of these limestone sheathed surfaces, the exact degree angle will never be resolved, definitively, by averaging the damaged angles of the casing stones themselves. We do, however, know that the architects were aiming for a figure around 51.85 degrees.
Happily, the true figure can easily be identified mathematically, as there is only one plausible possibility.
1. The sought after, coded angle was 51.84 degrees…for the following reasons:
2. The number 51.84 is an exact fraction of 25920, the anciently used number that described, in years, the duration of the Precession of the Equinoxes for a complete circuit (51.84 X 500 = 25920).
3. The angle, 51.84 degrees, divided by 2 = 25.92…again coding the appropriate numbers related to the Precession of the Equinoxes.
4. It has been determined, through comparative analysis, that the ancient reed measurement was 10.5 feet or 126 inches. Therefore, given that the true length of the Great Pyramid was 756 feet, which equates to 72 reeds per side, the total area that the pyramid covers is 72 X 72 reeds or 5184 square reeds.
5. It will be shown that the Heel stone at Stonehenge resides 259.20 feet from the exact centre of the site to the outlying face of the stone, The azimuth angle from site centre to the south-western extremity face of the stone was intended to convey 51.84 degrees off North.
[End of excerpt]
5184 = Victory over the beast (Rev. 15:2)
The Mayan Calendar Connections
The Mayan cycle of time is based on 13 baktun periods of 144000 days each, for a total of 1872000 days. This amounts to approximately 5125 years. The grand cycle, arguably, began in 3114 BC (or 3113), and will end in 2012 AD.
The baktun period and the total cycle of 13 baktun periods are divisible by 72 —
144000 = 72 x 2000
= 72 x 26000
The 144000 days of each baktun period is “coincidental” with the Book of Revelation.
The number 144 (12 x 12) is also found in Revelation, as part of the description of the New Jerusalem:
Note that the description indicates a cube with a factor of 12 measurement. This gives 12 x 12 x 12 = 1728. This is similar on a smaller scale to a cubic foot, a foot being 12 inches. Note: 123 or 1728 = 72 x 24
It is often helpful to remove the ending zeros from the ancient numbers to simplify comparisons.
The Mayan cycle, again, is composed of 13 periods of 144000 days each, for a total of 1872000 days. As reported in the article, Code of the Ancients, these types of Gematrian numbers all add to 9 or a multiple of 9 and are divisible by 9. The primary Gematrian numbers are evenly divisible by 36.
144 = 36 x 4
1872 = 36 x 52
It is said that there are 52 years in a Mayan century. The most interesting connection I found was this:
|1872 – 1656 = 216|
Remember, from the first part of this article, that 1656 years is the time in years between the creation of Adam to the landing of Noah’s Ark. The number 216 is half of 432 and equates to six cubed, or 6 x 6 x 6. The number 2160 is the length of one Zodiac Age in years.
Remember, the number 216 is related to the number letters in the 72 Divine Names, which have 3 letters each, for a total of 216 letters (see image and information above).
|New Jerusalem Plan|
After rereading the above paragraphs, another idea struck me. A key number in the New Jerusalem Plan (or design) is 31680 miles. This is figured in two ways. Draw a box around the sphere of the Earth, which has a diameter of 7920 miles (see diagram above). The perimeter of the box is 4 x 7920 = 31680. The second way is to calculate the circumference of the circle that passes through the 12 small circles, each of which is the diameter of the Moon, 2160 miles. In this calculation approximate Pi or Pyramid Pi is used, which is 22/7. The radius of this “Moon” circle is figured by adding the radius of the Earth and the radius of the Moon: 3960 + 1080 = 5040. The circumference of the Moon circle is figured as:
(2 x 22/7) x 5040 = 31680
There is said to be a converting factor with the verses of Revelation 21. The stadia is said to be the same measure as the furlong of 660 feet. Twelve thousand stadia converts to 7920000 feet. The breadth, length, and height are equal, so the figure becomes 4 x 12000 stadia or 48000 x 660 =31680000 feet.
Dropping the ending zeros, the basic figure is 4 x 12 = 48, and then, 48 x 66 = 3168.
As I thought of this in reviewing the above writings, I noticed the calculations:
144 = 36 x 4
1872 = 36 x 52
It became obvious that:
|52 – 4 = 48
1872 – 144 = 1728
Finding the difference between two of the key numbers from the Mayan cycle results in the “cube” calculation! This is actually obvious, since 13 x 144 = 1872, while 12 x 144 = 1728.
As mentioned previously, the number 5040 was associated with Atlantis. It is also the product of the numbers 1 through 7 (factorial 7 expressed as 7!):
1 x 2 x 3 x 4 x 5 x 6 x 7 = 5040
Note the 72 multiples of the numbers in the above paragraphs —
(Mayan Cycle) 1872000 days = 72 x 26000 days
1872 = 72 x 26
31680 = 72 x 440
7920 = 72 x 110
2160 = 72 x 30
3960 = 72 x 55
1080 = 72 x 15
5040 = 72 x 70
Pi — The Movie
The fictional movie “Pi” featured the idea of the 216 Names of God, which have been lost. They must be found, so that the High Priest can say them inside the Holy of Holies on Yom Kippur to bring the Messianic Age and the the revival of the dead.
This is excerpted from: Pi –Faith in chaos

Other Numerically Significant Crop Circle Formations
This is taken from: 444, The Triplets, & The Creation
The 1999 Quintuplet Pyramid Crop Circle Formations
The first crop circle in question appeared at Windmill Hill, Wiltshire, around July 19, 1999 — pictured on the left, below. It had 288 small circles. Around August 4, 1999, the related formation appeared at West Kennet Longbarrow, Wiltshire — pictured on the right, below. It had 156 small circles —

Interestingly, the combined circles in the two formations add to 444 —
288 + 156 = 444
Each quadrant of the Windmill Hill formation has 72 circles. Each quadrant of the West Kennet Longbarrow formation has 39 circles. This seems to be the basis of the triplet numbers —
72 + 39 = 111
Mathematicians have found that the number 288 and its square, 82944, are related to the Fine Structure Constant (1/137.035999679), which is sometimes simplified as 137. It is a key number in sub atomic physics. Remarkably, the Hebrew letters of ‘Kabbalah’ sums up to 137. See —
Teachers of the Kabbalah tell of the 288 sparks of holiness that fell into the mundane reality following the shattering of the vessels of the world of Chaos, and the rectification (Tikkun) and elevation of the 288 Divine sparks. The vessels are the spheres of the Tree of Life. The rectification represents a repair of the Tree, which will bring an ideal world. Some say there is a Spark of the Divine within every human being.

Crop Circle Music Numbers
Taken from: The Crop Circle Music Wheel
I read about the work of Gerald Hawkins in crop circle journals, and in Science News. He reportedly found mathematical theorems revealed in the geometry of various crop circle formations. According to professor Hawkins, the crop formations indicated ratios that correspond to the intervals of the octaves of the musical scale, as with the white keys of the piano.
Using the ratios of professor Hawkins, I calculated the various frequencies of the notes, using the standard 440 cycles per minute for the central “A” note. I drew diagrams and placed the numbers on circular wheels.
The first Gematrian number that appears, 396, is on the second revolution around the wheels. It is 36 x 11 on the inner wheel, and at the first major mark on the outer wheel (360 + 36).
The earth diameter harmonic, 792, is on the third revolution, at the second major mark on the Gematrian Wheel (2 x 360 = 720 + 72). On the inner wheel, it is 72 x 11.
Notes divisible by 72 on the Music Wheel are —
G note 792 (72 x 11)
G note 1584 (72 x 22)
D note 2376 (72 x 33)

In Joseph Campbell’s, The Inner Reaches Of Outer Space, he writes about the similarity between the Babylonian and Genesis flood stories. In the Babylonian or Sumerian story, there were ten kings who lived very long lives from creation to the time of the flood. This is given as a total of 432,000 years.

Total years =
The number of years for each of the kings, and the total years, are all evenly divisible by 72 —
36000 = 72 x 500
10800 = 72 x 150
46800 = 72 x 650
43200 = 72 x 600
64800 = 72 x 900
36000 = 72 x 500
64800 = 72 x 900
36000 = 72 x 500
28800 = 72 x 400
64800 = 72 x 900
(Total years) 432000 = 72 x 6000
In the Biblical account, there were ten patriarchs between Adam and Noah, who also lived long lives. Noah was 600 years old at the time of the landing of the Ark on the mountains of Ararat (in present day Turkey). The total years add up to 1,656.

Total years until Flood =
In 1656 years, there are 86400 weeks, and half that number is 43200. There are myths about cycles in time, and out of time, so this doubling/halving is not uncommon. He believed that someone carefully gave the age of Noah to secretly hide the time cycle number.
The total number of years —
1656 = 72 x 23

Note: 7920 can be calculated —
7200 + 720 = 7920
