This butterfly image of a man is rather interesting since it is an obvious geometrical representation of DaVinci's Vitruvian Man, or L'Uomo Vitruviano. Were the crop image artists suggesting the imminence of mankind's spiritual metamorphosis? Hmm...
After viewing the photos below, be sure to read the post where I give a brief analysis and opinion on this phenomenon.

These are a few of my favourite impressions.
So what are we to make of these enigmatic formations: Weather conditions, hoaxers, aliens, CIA plot? What else might these 'phantoms of the night result from?
Personally, I’ve been interested in this growing phenomenon of thousands of crop formations for years and I’m always amazed at how they continue to make their appearance more plentiful and intricate throughout the world. Some are so mathematically intricate that they are considered to be 'sacred' geometry, many of which appear regularly in the area of Stonehenge.
It is estimated 10,000 or more have been documented since the 1970s. And not just etched in crops, but some have allegedly been reported to appear visible to have been etched in ice in certain remote areas in the far north that are visible to aircraft.
As an aside, one of the reasons I’ve included the topic of crop formations in this blog is because there is a very interesting alien that keeps appearing in the plot of my ELYSIUM’S PASSAGE novel series. And so I thought I’d go a bit off-grid and briefly explore this topic to help keep this blog interesting.
In any case, my alien's name is Rhom and he’s a hoot! Ond one of the reasons he drops in on earth now and then is because of our Caribbean rum. However, it’s for much more than just that, since he has an important role to play in the unfolding of the life of James, the protagonist-narrator. His appearance and persona change for earthly life he assumes; astrophysicist prof, cab driver, ship captain, etc.
But back to ‘crop circles.’ To me, one of the strange things about these formations is the reactions of people who seem to need to explain them away, no matter how tenuous the explanation. At least it seems that way from my perspective.
If you wish to review a summary of sceptical enquiry on this, you may find with the Wikipedia entry on Crop Circles. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crop_circle#Alternative_explanations
It declares: “Although obscure natural causes or alien origins of crop circles are suggested by fringe theorists, there is no scientific evidence for such explanations, and all crop circles are consistent with human causation”
But then, science can be rather narrow with what parameters it considers acceptable. So where does this leave us in substantiating the cause of these circles? I don’t know, but still, I’m less than impressed with the simplistic dismissals that get flung about, especially by those who know very little compared to those who continue to study the phenomena.
For example, it’s okay to believe that crop circles result from being commercializing as t-shirts and souvenirs. I guess the hoaxers must get a piece of the action for their trouble. Somehow that’s supposed to explain the circles away? And apparently, it is pointed out that circles are generally located near major roadways for the convenience of tourists and hoaxers. Some are, but many are not.
All too often, debunkers prefer to ignore or disbelieve reports of formations occurring within a couple of hours or less during daylight hours or in the driving rain in the middle of the night. All in all, I would say many of these sceptical explanations are rather one-sided and don’t do much or anything to address the more enigmatic issues related to the formations.
And so the question remains of how these circles and images are able to take formation with creative and meaningful mathematical designs, including disks of binary codes and equations that relate to constellations. One image is of a face that only takes form when seen from far above.
To me, at least, this is been beyond human comprehension unless these supposed hoaxers are extremely talented and dedicated. And what are those orbs of light hovering around in the sky over the subject site? Videotapes (analogue format) have been scientifically examined, found no evidence of digital tampering.
As for the meteorological explanations, I think is one of the more ridiculous explanations, although it is said Steven Hawking accepted that, at least for a time, until defaulting to the prevailing hoax explanation. I understand even these meteorological dismissals have fallen out of favour… and for good reason. Chaos doesn’t produce design, at least not these kinds of designs, often spread over an entire field, such as with our butterfly man.
Of course, there have been plenty of hoaxes, but often, the pictures we have of these wannabe debunkers going out in a field with ropes and a board are less than impressive. Just because a team might be able to duplicate certain simple designs hardly proves or disproves anything. Admittedly, with enough time and organized effort, some are not too bad, although they’re never accomplished within an hour.
But really… 10,000 circles and symmetrical designs throughout the world, often in extremely remote areas, some not barely accessible except by air, such as in those in the ice of northerly regions. So who are all these hoaxers do their artist craft in often remote farmer’s fields all over the world? But why would they go to the effort… and what’s the payoff? And why don’t we know who these hoaxers might be as they go about the world creating thousands of these incredible formations?
On one ‘scientific’ YouTube video site, we are assured by the debunker that almost all have been identified and proven to be hoaxes and only a very small percentage still remain unexplained. But from what I understand, the truth is the opposite. In fact, one well-informed source, Rik van Kempen working in the field (pun intended) for over 26 years, suggests 6% or less might be considered to be hoaxes.
I suggest anyone who is interested watch her very informative videos. This is a link to one of her presentations: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8RH_MD6qMt4
For those who remain open to what purpose might lie behind the formations, there are several theories. Of course, all of these are far more esoteric than what science is willing to consider what is being communicated and why it’s being communicated to the earth at this time. However, it’s not my purpose to promote this topic, and so won’t go into these here, although they are very interesting ideas to consider, even if they are highly speculative.
Rather than going on and on, back and forth on this topic, I have included a number of YouTube video links on pictures and various documentaries regarding various circles, including interviews with investigators and scientists. Some of these and many others that can be found online on YouTube are particularly intriguing as they examine the radioactivity, the 3D imagery, the mathematical formulations in the patterns, the intricate bends to the weaves, the altered nodes (without breaking the stocks as hoaxers do with their boards and ropes).
In sum, for me, it doesn’t matter what one might think about formations, whether they might be contrived hoaxes or something more exotic. And yet, as I said, I find many of these dismissive arguments to be less than convincing and often annoying. There are times sloppy reasoning by debunkers need to be critically examined and likewise debunked when loaded with facile explanations.
For anyone interested in the controversy, I say let’s consider all the facts and circumstantial evidence with an open and critical mind.
Anyway, it’s a fun topic so let me know your thoughts in the comments section at the end of this post.
Be sure to take a look at a sample of some of the following crop circle drone views. They are outstanding!
SUMMARY OF THE ELYSIUM'S PASSAGE SERIES
The Elysium Passage series involves five novels about a young British philosopher named James Phillips who finds himself living in an altered state of reality while still remaining on earth.
After experiencing a near-fatal fall while climbing to the summit of a remote mountain in the Andes, James awakens in a new dimension. He soon encounters two mysterious beings who provide him with a very different perspective on the nature of his existence. Over the next year, before his body recovers from the coma, he is challenged to re-examine his understanding of life’s meaning and purpose far beyond anything he previously believed or could believe.
An engaging and sometimes surreal adventure with intimations of impending romance, the narrative explores the most important questions about life, death, reality and our ultimate destiny.
The Plains of Elysium (Champs-Élysées) was described by Homer, Hesiod, Virgil and many other poets as the paradisiac afterlife realm reserved for heroes. As the title suggests, this is about a journey through a passage that leads towards Elysium’s exciting realm of existence.

ELYSIUM'S PASSAGE: THE SUMMIT
The following comments are among the first Amazon reviews of Elysium’s Passage: The Summit. All are Five Stars! Others reader reviews are included below, along with excerpts from two professional reviews. To read full reviews, go to READER REVIEWS on this blog.
"A delightful mix of fantasy, reality, conjecture and humour; Mr Meyers draws the reader into the story with a gentle narrative that captures the imagination, leaving one anxious to get to the next page drawing you into his exceptional world.”
"Quietly, gently, and without imposition, the Author unfolds the pages, creating an intricate, interlocking bridge spanning the chasm between mind and heart. Renewing, refreshing, restoring. In my bereavement, it was vigil and light…"
“Excellently written with an exceedingly deep understanding of this world and the next. The characters are very well written and engaging that takes the reader on both a philosophical and spiritual journey, a journey that at times is both disquieting and tranquil. James, a British Philosopher can be irreverent and caustic, traits that should have left me cringing, but instead made me laugh out loud. Elysium’s Passage is a fun, enlightening and remarkable book.”
“This is a masterful fantasy, becoming a real possibility, as the reader is drawn into the story. The Summit leaves you anxious for the next book in the series, yet also leaves you totally satisfied with the world you have just visited. Genius! An exciting, yet calming, experience that is not to be missed."
"There was hardly a page on which I did not find at least one sentence worthy of hi-lighting for future reference. In addition, I thoroughly enjoyed the main character, James, whose personality and passionate verbal exchanges with the other characters, kept me coming back for more. I am reading the book for a second time while I wait for the next one in this series to be made available."
“N.G. Meyers has clearly put a great deal of research and thought into what the afterlife may look like and I like his perspective. It’s an altogether welcoming and exciting vision. The book gives one a great deal to think about and a reassuring confidence that the end of our lives is truly the beginning of life in the next. I highly recommend it."
"I am really enjoying your book, it’s fantastic! It is so incredible and diversified that I can’t really explain it other people, so what I say is just read this book. Thank you so much for the blessings that you’ve given the world!"
“The humour interjected into a serious discussion makes me laugh out loud. Totally unexpected....l may be in the presence of at least a master, if not a genius. A fair ride into reality... seeking that which is unseen, yet absolutely real.”
“An engaging story of adventure embracing man's deepest desire to search for meaning and purpose, N.G. Meyers takes the reader on an adventurous thought-provoking journey. This book has substance. It is a perfect blend of adventure and fantasy combined with spiritual philosophy. It ignited my imagination. The author magically weaves a good story laced with wit and humour together with deep philosophical wisdom. This book has it all!”
“An evolution in thought is triggered by many fresh philosophical themes which could inspire readers to re-think their reality and former ideologies that have dictated their lives… the author fires readers’ imaginations to view what could be possible when spirit vacates the body.”
“This is the book spiritual seekers have been waiting for. For me, it granted a great read as well as increased inspiration to live every day with a heightened sense of purpose. I highly recommend it.
“The Summit is capable of hooking readers and luring them to search for Book 2 to discover more about Dr. Philip’s surreal trek into the mysterious unknown universe. This thick book is well worth the read and to share…”
“The Elysium’s Passage series challenges and excites the reader while taking him into parallel quests for truth with the hero, James. It can be a fast fantasy read or a longer deliberation about what is reality or illusion; veracity or platitude. Take the journey!”
“Mind-blowing statements and speculation (‘…everyone is a non-physical thought form conceived in the Mind of God, preserved for all eternity because God’s thoughts never die…’). Many will find Meyers’ journey up the Mountain intriguing—and possibly even life-changing.” (BLUEINK REVIEW)
“In its effort to grapple with fundamental questions about the meaning of life, it raises questions that have echoed throughout the ages, including about where we come from, where we are going, who we are.” (CLARION REVIEW)
