Etchilhampton, Wiltshire | 19th August 2015 | Wheat Note: You can click on any of the images in this blog for an enlarged view.  The second formation to appear at Etchilhampton in 2015 was also to be the last of the season. It was big, approximately 250ft in diameter, and was in a field of golden mature wheat. It looked impressive and majestic in the landscape. The geometry of the formation was rather novel. Nine stars ‘hold hands’ around the outer of the formation with two inner rows of nine small standing and flattened blocks in each. From the air one was immediately drawn to the ‘X’ shapes laid into the flattened crop, and as I sat down to draw this formation it was clear these X’s were a central part of the design as well as a very attractive part of the lay of the crop. There were twenty-seven X’s all together. Some of them were not used in the geometry of the design, but instead, gave anyone looking at the design an excellent pointer as to its construction. You can see some of the X’s in the large photo at the top of the page. The circle of the formation is divided into thirty-six segments and then seven concentric rings are created. Add in a narrow 8th outer ring to contain the entire design and the central circle and you nine. The entire design is picked from this geometric framework. The X’s helped create the nine hexagram stars which sat around the perimeter of the design. Interestingly, because of the way the framework was set out (partially in segments...

Crop Circles & the Geometry of Thresholds By Robin Heath We had the great pleasure of hearing Robin Heath deliver the keynote presentation at the Summer Crop Circle Lectures last year. It was one of the best lectures I’d heard him give in the long years I have known him; it was important, prescient and above all quite brilliant. He has very kindly given me permission to share that presentation with you and I will be posting Robin’s lecture notes and illustrations in a three part guest blog. I’d like to thank Robin for the opportunity to share his work on the Temporary Temples website – it’s a great honour! Robin Heath is an unaffiliated researcher into megalithic and ancient sciences. He is author of several books on Stonehenge, two of which are on sale at the monument. For more information, there are two websites:www.skyandlandscape.com and www.megalithicscience.org Robin lives on a smallholding in coastal West Wales with his wife Trish, two cats and three theodolites.   Please click on any of the images in this article for a larger view PART THREE (Click for part one and two) Some Conclusions from part two: The circle makers appear to be fully familiar with the traditional canon of measure. They incorporate this canon within beautiful (attention-seeking) designs, in plain sight, often adjacent to structures where the traditional canon was once employed, such as megalithic sites. It is possible that only people who understand both geometry and the canon of ancient measure can connect with the messages contained within crop circles. The principal (and apparently very gentle) message is that the circle builders are fully familiar with...

It will lead at some stage to facing and hopefully answering the following questions… Part Two Who or what do we trust? Are there any absolute facts or anchor points? I believe that there are some answers, and now...

Although, for a newcomer to this intriguing subject, it may appear that nobody agrees on anything with regard to the reason or purpose of the deluge of crop circles that seasonally locates itself in crop fields around the globe, there are some observable patterns in their type and locations. However, I do believe that we need to start asking...
