I opened my Crop Circle Internet site in March, 1997. My original
aim was to provide information to the Finnish public about a subject,
of which there was practically nothing written in Finnish. Ever since
the beginning, however, my visitors were mostly foreigners, so I soon
concentrated updating mainly the English pages. In 1999, to the disappointment
of some, I removed the outdated Finnish pages completely.
Now, in early 2002, I have progressed quite a
bit from my starting point. After visiting England five summers
in a row, having seen well over 50 Crop Circles on the spot (some
also in Finland), having exchanged ideas with several international
researchers, I can now present a lot of my own material and conclusions.
Hence my site doesn't any longer just shed light on all possible
ideas and approaches circulating world-wide. Instead I'm focusing
on the facts that have become clear to me over these years. Of course
I'm not claiming (as nobody can) to understand the phenomenon in
all its complexity; answers often open up a set of new questions,
so there's always a lot to explore!
On the other hand, lots of these questions touch a much wider
spectrum of subjects than just the Crop Circles themselves. To understand
this phenomenon, one must adapt (or rather recall) a worldview significantly
differing from the one given to us Western people in our education
system and media. For example, the questions "who is making the
patterns" or "how are these patterns made" can not be answered before
the questioner is prepared in his mind to wander beyond the boundaries
of the mainstream technically oriented worldview. This view, when
seen in a wider perspective, is a very recent one and by no means
should we be content to take it as absolutely correct.
Based on all the data gathered from the Crop Circles by this day,
we should forget such questions as "are they all stomped down by
people" or "are they all landing marks of flying saucers". From
the viewpoint of a Crop Circle researcher (no matter how amateur)
these questions belong to history and the it's very clear that the
answer to this kind of specific questions is "no". There is no exclusive
single solution to the Crop Circle puzzle. As certainly as we can
state that some crop formations are made by people stomping on the
fields, we can say that some are not.
Unlike the sceptics claim, evidence must be provided both for
a formation being man-made and being not man-made. This would not
be the case, if it could be seen reasonable that every single formation
was created by people. Most of these sceptics, however, have not
visited any Crop Circles personally, leave alone familiarised themselves
with all the research material that is publicly available. This
material proves without a shadow of a doubt that there are Crop
Circles, that absolutely could not have been made by people - at
least not by using only physical tools (some of this material can
be seen on my web site and in my video documentary "Crop Circles
- coreography of consciousness"). Thus we must take as a starting
point the idea that there is a force beyond physical human beings
behind some of the Crop Circles. After accepting this, we must see
this force as the possible creator of each and every new formation,
regardless of it's complexity (since we can't assume this force
to make only complex formations).
So what is this outside force (or forces) and where does it
come from, why is it here? There are answers available even to these
questions, but accepting them calls for even more freedom from the
strict scientific worldview. And what is the most difficult thing
to swallow for the people rooted in the western materialistic-scientific
ground, the sincerity of these answers can not be proven by physical
evidence but by spiritual - which, in the end, can only be found
inside each individual person.
With this booklet, with my site, with my video I can also just
offer physical evidence to support the idea that what we have here
is a true phenomenon, not just a scam or landscape art. Yet I can
give several suggestive groundings for the origin and purpose of
these patterns - it is up to the reader to decide about their truthfulness.
I am not upset if you decide not to believe. It is even better not
to believe than believe blindly just because somebody says something!
Welcome to the Evolution!
