The Independent Research Centre for Unexplained Phenomena (IRCUP) was founded in 1993 by myself, Paul Vigay, after a number of personal experiences and four years of extensive research into the continuing crop circles enigma. I was previously a UFO and paranormal investigator, but became interested in crop circles in 1989 when I had a number of first-hand experiences and discovered anomalous electrical effects in and around crop formations.
After four years it had became increasingly apparent that there was a real and genuine mystery to the subject. Not only have strange aerial anomalies (UFOs) been linked with crop circles, but many people and objects have been affected by their influence - either positively or negatively. Another thing which became more widespread during the last few years is the seemingly paranoid attempts by some sceptics and hoaxers to try to debunk the subject and muddy the water in the eyes of the general public. This is not helped by a sensationalist and government controlled media.
It seems that some people are determined to undermine serious research, either by their own fear of the unknown or by fear of new discoveries in science and technology. To this end, I decided to create IRCUP - for the serious investigation and study of the subject - not just recording witness reports, but also carrying out repeatable experiments using scientific and electronic equipment.
IRCUP publishes a regular journal four times a year in order to spread and raise public awareness and also to report on scientific results and new theories regarding crop circles and related phenomena.
Although mainly concentrating on crop circles, UFOs and spiritual awareness, IRCUP also carry out investigations into ESP, ghosts, life after death, telepathy and other paranormal events.
IRCUP are also the official Internet contacts for Operation Right To Know (ORTK) Britain
This web site has won a number of international awards and continues to set new standards and implement unique facilities to visitors, including the World's only fully interactive, searchable database of International Crop Formations, which not only allows visitors to search for keywords, places and dates but also allows people to add their own comments and experiences to any entry in the database. This database is unique and exclusive to www.cropcircleresearch.com and its affiliated sites.
I am also the creator and administrator of The Crop Circle WebRing which links crop circle related web sites around the world - again dedicated to sharing knowledge and raising awareness of important issues.
Back in 1995, myself and ParadigmShift.com founder Diahann Hughes jointly created the alt.paranormal.crop-circles Usenet newsgroup which allows the public discussion of crop circle related subjects.
