Crop circle message––authentic or hoax?  

(I am fairly certain I should not publish this entry, but I found the subject itself fascinating and so am going ahead with what I understood from a few hours of research.  I gleaned some information from the "Humans are Free" site, but frankly, I did not understand much of it.  It included much technical information on binary coding that was far beyond my limited comprehension.  However, I did glean two interesting insights.  One was that a crop circle containing binary code was received in 2001 in England. This seemed to contain a message, and this message appeared to relate to the information sent into outer space by the U. S. in l974 (Carl Sagan was the famous scientist who helped construct the message.)  Then, a year later, an ancient disc was discovered that  was also written in binary code.

Here is the way the message on the disc has been interpreted:

"Beware the bearers of false gifts and their broken promises.
Much pain, but still time. Believe there is good out there.
We oppose deception. Conduit closing. 0x07"

This resembles a familiar saying, based the famous "Beware of Greeks bearing gifts."  This warning originally applied to the well known story in the Iliad of how the Greeks tricked the Trojans with their "gift" of a great wooden horse, which the Trojans pulled inside the walls of the city.  Of course, the horse was filled with Greek soldiers who came forth at night and won victory over the Trojans.  The saying is included in Vergil and later appears in Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar."

The message that was received in 2001 is clearly derived from the earlier sources, but there is much controversy as to whether it is in this example authentic or else a clever hoax.  We would like to believe that it comes from some benevolent intelligence in outer space, but others claim it is specious.  If it is a hoax, then it was created by someone with high technical knowledge of binary code as well as expertise in creating crop circles, beyond what is possible with a board and two ropes.

If you want to read more from Humans are Free site (and others) you can google "Crop Circles Beware of Greeks" and read further.  I have reprinted a few excerpts from the "Humans are free" post where I got my (mis?) information.  I like to explore such fringe topics, though often I do not understand them very well.  This is likely why I am a poet/mystic and not a scientist.)

I. The Chilbolton 'Arecibo message' Formation

By Paul Vigay (R.I.P.) and Alexander Light

On Tuesday 21st August 2001 two new crop formations were reported near Chilbolton radio telescope in Hampshire, UK. Both were very impressive looking and consisted of a large number of small 'pixels', which when viewed from the air formed a recognisable shape - unlike many other crop formations.

One represented a 'human face' and the other resembled a radio transmission that SETI (the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence) sent from the Arecibo radio telescope in 1974.

This latter formation will be examined in this article, in which I hope to not only describe and explain the original transmission, but also to examine and decode a number of significant changes occurring in the crop formation.

After speaking to witnesses, it would appear that the 'Arecibo' formation was created on August 20th. Although I could roughly make out the binary pattern of the formation from aerial photographs, some aspects were not quite clear enough to discern individual 'digits'. Therefore I visited both formations myself (they are about 200m apart in the same field) on Saturday 25th August 2001."

An interesting interpretation of the 'human face' crop formation comes from researcher and writer, Wayne Herschel. In his vision, the face resembles that of the Egyptian Sphinx and Viracocha, a prea-Inca god. But the most thought-provoking resemblance is to the famous Mars Face.

The Arecibo message

"First, I will give some background to the original message sent from Arecibo, back in 1974. Arecibo is on the northern coast of Puerto Rico and contains a natural disc-shaped hole in the rock. Inside this bowl was constructed the world's largest radio-telescope, with a diameter of 1000 feet.

In 1974 a number of modifications had been carried out to the transmitter, enabling it to broadcast signals at a power of up to 20 terawatts (1 terawatt = 1 trillion watts) and as an inaugural test of these improvements it was decided by SETI to transmit an encoded message to the heavens. This signal was aimed towards the globular star cluster M13, some 25,000 light years away and consisting of some 300,000 stars in the constellation of Hercules.

The message was actually transmitted on November 16th 1974 and consisted of 1679 pulses of binary code (0's and 1's) - which took a little under three minutes to transmit. It was transmitted on a frequency of 2380MHz (which is significant later).

Decoding the original message

The original message was comprised of several 'sections', each depicting a particular aspect of 'our civilisation'. At the top are binary representations of the numbers one through to ten, interestingly showing the numbers eight, nine and ten as two columns. This shows anyone decoding the message that we can specify that numbers too large to be written on a single line can be 'carried over'.

The next section contains the binary values 1,6,7,8 and 15 which indicate the atomic numbers of the primary elements for life on Earth; Hydrogen, Carbon, Nitrogen, Oxygen and Phosphorus respectively.

(And so forth)

Directly below the DNA double helix is a small representation of us - humans - with a body and two arms and two legs (like a little stick man). On the left is a binary value of the population of Earth. This can be calculated as roughly 4.29 billion, which is roughly the population of the world, back in 1974. On the right of the humanoid form is a binary code for the height of humans.

From the code for the height of a human, we can see that the value is 1110 in binary, or 14 in decimal. If we multiply 14 by our wavelength unit (12.6) we get 176.4cm, or roughly 5'9" - the average height of humans.

The next section is a simplified representation of our Solar System - where we live. It shows the sun and nine planets, roughly representative of size. By moving the third planet up slightly it highlights that something is significant about the third planet from the sun - Earth.

Differences between the message sent in 1974 and the one received in 2001

(Left: what we sent in 1974 / Right: what we received in 2001)

What's different in the Crop Formation?

Either side of what is now an ET, there are changes to both the 'population' figure and also the height value. The latter is now 1000 in binary, or 8. If we multiply this by the original 'wavelength unit' we get 8*12.6cm = 100.8cm which is roughly 3'4" - interesting, because this would correlate with ET witness accounts.

Below this we notice additional changes to the Solar System chart. The third planet from the sun is not the only one 'highlighted' now. The fourth and fifth are as well. The fifth even appears to be emphasised even more, with three additional 'pixels'.

What does it all mean?

II. Gray Extraterrestrial holding a disc

Sparsholt, Hampshire, England. August 21st, 2002.

(This crop circle appeared in England one year later.  And then it appeared in similar form in Italy in 2015––a least as I understand it._

The message within the disk was deciphered using the standard 8 bit binary code known as ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange).  The cipher starts at the center of the disk and spirals outward counter-clockwise, this is also the same read pattern that a compact disc or DVD uses.

III. The Message Translated:

"Beware the bearers of false gifts and their broken promises.
Much pain, but still time. Believe there is good out there.
We oppose deception. Conduit closing. 0x07"

The binary code of 0x07 at the end of the message would produced a bell sound similar to that of an old typewriter / bell sound (Example: DING!).

Exact Construction:

(A) Beware the bearers of FALSE gifts & their BROKEN PROMISES.
(B) Much PAIN but still time.BELIEVE.
(C) There is GOOD out there.We OPpose DECEPTION.
Conduit CLOSING (Ding!)

Is this a friendly message from benevolent beings?
