Oliver’s Castle Crop Circle Remote View, 1997

A visitor to a UK crop circle at Upham in 1997, gets images in her mind of a crop circle pattern that mysteriously appears in a nearby field the following night. Is this an example of spontaneous “crop circle remote viewing”? These pages are from my book Opening Minds: A Journey of Extraordinary Encounters, Crop Circles, and Resonance (2002).

Please watch Bob Greenyer’s enlightening presentation “ULTR-crop circles” on the Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project youtube channel to learn how the Oliver’s Castle crop formation pattern is related to Cold Fusion/LENR, coherent matter, and ball lightening. Below are some images from that presentation (courtesy of Bob Greenyer and MFMP).

Investigation into Dark Energy as the Cause of Anomalous Electromagnetic Activity Observed in the Vicinity of Crop Formations

I saw three separate devices fail within 10 minutes, at the edge and inside of this crop circle, Fyfield Down 1999.
The author witnessed three separate electronic devices fail within 10 minutes, at the edge and inside, of this crop circle at Fyfield Down 1999.

Crop circles and formations have long been associated with electronic anomalies in cameras, batteries, and other electronic equipment. Upon entering or being in the vicinity of a formation, visitors sometimes report their cameras and compasses malfunctioning, batteries rapidly draining, temporal anomalies, and even unexplained aerial luminosities. Other formations seem to have unexplained magnetic effects on compasses and magnetometers. We estimate that roughly 5 percent of all crop formation visits have these effects, regardless of whether the crop circles are man made or not. The author saw this effect first-hand in 1999, in a man made circle in the U.K., when three electronic devices stopped working within a few minutes. The cause of this perplexing phenomena has been unknown. We suggest that some crop circles are interacting with a cosmic scalar “quintessence” field known as dark energy, the so-called fifth force, producing subtle alterations to Maxwell’s formulas. This would cause the static field of the crop formation to create very weak electrical currents. Dark energy is thought to make up around 68 percent of the total mass-energy of the universe and have a strength, on average, of about one joule per square kilometer. The aforementioned electromagnetic anomalies could be caused by crop formations’ crystalline-like lattice structures interaction with a quintessence field. In this way, we could also describe electrically active crop circles as Dark Energy Circuits (DECs) or attractors.

New Crop Circle Interview–Secrets Revealed!


Another Camera Failure in a Crop Circle–East Kennett, July 2011

We sometimes see this type of unexplained electronic equipment failure as we visit the U.K. crop circles with our tour group. The camera affected this time is a new Canon Rebel EOs T2i in the East Kennett formation. It lost it’s ability to focus as the person stepped into the formation, then it completely lost power for a few minutes.  A few hours later it had completely recovered. (My camera video recorder also failed briefly as I attempted to record this anomalous event.)
