A Crop Circle and a Quasicrystal
This Crop Circle appeared on Jubilee Plantation in Wiltshire, U.K. on August 15, 2011. It is a magnificent design and demonstrates perfection in its execution. The laid pattern of wheat flowing so gracefully in a gently layered and repeating pattern is reminiscent of water flowing in a stream. This ground shot, taken by Bert Janssen, author of www.CropCirclesandMore.com (thank you for this effort Bert), gives us a glimpse of the smooth and subtle pattern in the laid wheat crop.
The pattern in the center of this Crop Circle is even more astounding, for it has come to my attention that this complex design represents a very precise 2-dimensional model of the electron-diffraction pattern of an icosahedral Holmium – Magnesium – Zinc quasicrystal which is perfectly contained within the beautiful boundary which circumscribes this 2-dimensional example of a higher-dimensional quasicrystal framework.
Not only must we wrestle with the question of how a (human) person(s) might been able to physically access a farmer’s field of wheat and secretly produce a grand-sized and perfectly scaled 2-dimensional rendering of a such a quasicrystals electron-diffraction pattern, but we must also question what person having these incredible skills and this level of daring would be willing to go out in the dark of night, risking arrest, fine, and /or imprisonment for trespassing and vandalism, and would also be aware of this relatively new-to-science concept of a Ho-Mg-Zn quasicrystal’s electron-diffraction pattern? Who indeed? If this was done by one or more persons, then this truly represents Olympic-level human mischief.
In my own life, I am presently privileged to work only half-time, I watch very little television, and yet I always seem to feel that I can barely “keep up” with the activities and events which are continually unfolding in my life. It seems that most of us stay quite busy simply trying to maintain the pace required to “keep up” with the demands of our lives. We must ponder how a person would find the time and the inspiration, and have the required knowledge and skill set to produce this and similarly remarkable Crop Circles over and over and over again, perfectly executed without errors, and incorporating such imaginative and relatively obscure themes which we find presented, suddenly and without fanfare or any claim of authorship, in these beautiful and highly original patterns.
Now, to be fully burdened by this profound conundrum of what to believe and what not to believe regarding this and many other Crop Circles, you must also be made aware that Dr. Dan Shechtman was awarded the 2011 Nobel Prize in chemistry for his discovery of the quasicrystal. This Nobel Prize was announced to the world on October 5, 2011, and this announcement occurred 51 days after the Jubilee Plantation Crop Circle was created! Could this simply be a highly unlikely coincidence? If it is not, then how could the creators of this design have known of this important and upcoming award so far in advance of the date of the announcement? Perhaps to the creators of the Jubilee Plantation Crop Circle time does not mean what it presently means to you and I, and perhaps this Crop Circle’s reference to higher dimensional space may be a clue to the nature of that ability. “Any sufficiently advanced technology will appear as majic”.
Take the time to listen to this interview (below) with Dr. Shechtman as he describes his past experience with his fellow scientists, some of whom were personal friends of Shechtman, following his announcement of his discovery of a quasicrystal on April 2, 1982. Dr. Shechtman’s story is a narrative which also serves well to accurately characterize our civilization’s current impasse in accepting what to myself and a growing minority of others has become self-evident – that we are not alone in this universe. The Jubilee Plantation quasicrystal Crop Circle, many other Crop Circles which are just as miraculous in their physical perfection and the message they bring to us, and the UFO’s which are seen and reported in our skies on a daily basis, are making this fact increasingly clear to those who will open their minds to this new reality.
To those inspired individuals immersed in Occupy Wall Street who desire to see a change in our world, you would do well to carefully consider the profound changes which will occur in our world when this new reality becomes fully embraced by our civilization. When that day arrives, business as usual is going to change in a rapid and a dramatic evolution, for we will all then know that another intelligence is watching, and very likely evaluating, just what is transpiring down here. We can already know that this intelligence is clearly interested in our world or we would not be seeing Jubilee, UFO’s, and like phenomenon coming at us with such regularity. They, whoever they are and wherever they come from, are here and they are watching our civilization’s evolution unfold. From this we can also surmise that Free Will is a real and an important driver in our universe, and one that is quite apparently honored by that intelligence responsible for the Jubilee Crop Circle . Each and every day, we individually and collectively self-determine the path we will take to our own and our collective destiny. Those that are observing our social evolution are leaving us hints about their presence here with us and the evidence demonstrates that they remain keenly interested in how our future as a civilization and as stewards of this planet will unfold but, with very few exceptions, are allowing us to choose our own path which will determine our future reality.
I regret that I do not have the proper software or expertise to graphically demonstrate for the reader the relationship between the electron-diffraction pattern of a Ho-Mg-Zn quasicrystal and the 2-dimensional model of this that we see manifested in the Jubilee Plantation crop circle of August 15, 2011. I trust that there are those who can and will.
My gratitude to Mark Fussell and Stuart Dike at www.CropCircleConnector.com for making these copyrighted photographs of the Jubilee Plantation Crop Circle available, and to the individual(s), unknown to me, who went to the trouble and expense to take these photos – you must know how important this work will be to our world. Thanks also to Bertold Zugelder, whose accurate diagram of the Jubilee Plantation Crop Circle made this analysis much easier, and thanks to Red Collie who is an inspiration to those of us who might otherwise loose interest.
Addendum March 31, 2012:
To view graphics which serve to better illustrate the relationship between the Jubilee Plantation’s interior latticework and the electron diffraction pattern of a quasicrystal, and for another equally important insight which I had overlooked in my own analysis of the amazing Jubilee Plantation Crop Circle, please go to Red Collie’s presentation of his independent analysis of the Jubilee Plantation formation at: http://www.cropcircleconnector.com/2011/jubilee/comments.html
