Example text

Among these pages one can read other confessions of circlemakers and find a beginner's guide to circlemaking, detailing the tools and methods necessary to make 'genuine circles'. They and others have undertaken commissions. Lundberg's team were flown to New Zealand to perform for NEC and Adrian Dexter, winner of the circles competition, swirled the Soil Association symbol, to promote this organic farming organization (still only 1 per cent of UK agriculture). Interestingly, the circlemakers themselves often profess a belief in the 'real' phenomenon, and also report some of the same experiences of unexplained lights and sounds as described in Chapter 6.

Allied beliefs include the sense that the earth is receiving energies designed to assist in the raising of consciousness and that circles mark these incoming beams. These ideas are hard to test experimentally. Finally in this section we touch on a hybrid idea, which draws on several sources. Andrew Collins, in his book The Circle Makers (see Further Reading), develops the idea that the circles may be formed through the medium of 'orgone', the name given by Wilhelm Reich to the invisible 'substance' that pervades the atmosphere, given various names in different ages and cultures, such as 'ether'.

Seemingly, the hoaxers had known of the protocols which required that nobody would enter a formation until Andrews and Delgado were on site and had predicted correctly that an announcement to the media would be made immediately. There were also facts which demonstrated a certain amount of military involvement, at least in the surveillance operation. The observation post was owned by the army and two soldiers were in attendance throughout the operation, equipped with night sights. They were said to have been absent on the night that the hoax occurred.
