Crop circle distribution patternsI've updated the distribution patterns of crop circles to include the 2002 season, as well as moving the text from the database page into a separate article.
Interesting articles around the webI've created a new section, giving links and references to interesting articles available on other websites. Please feel free to recommend one if you find something interesting.
That FBI icon.... A joke that backfired, by puzzling readers.
BBC Southampton being slow to add crop circle infoTwo weeks ago I was asked to be the BBC's crop circle 'expert' and answer questions on an interactive web site. I emailed my answers immediately, but they've still failed to appear on the BBC web site. Censorship or bad updating? In the interest of free speech, I've reproduced my original answers here.

Scientific Evidence and Current Research Projects

I am currently working on a number of personal research projects, which have grown out of the past 12 years of my own first-hand experiences from studying the crop circle mystery.
I started on my path of discovery back in 1989 and have since encountered many aspects of strange and anomalous phenomena. Initially I detected unexplainable electromagnetic effects in and around crop circles, but coming from a scientific and academic background I wanted to be sure of my findings - mainly to satisfy my own curiosity but also to help spread knowledge and information to others around the world who's only experience of crop circles might be the biased disinformation put out by the media.

Because hoaxers can't replicate some of the measurable electromagnetic effects we were detecting, and orthodox scientists are either uninterested or closed-minded to our results, I have been investigating the electromagnetic effects around crop circle sites for several years now.

However, due to discoveries we've made in the last few years, I have expanded my research projects to encompass a number of related subjects - such is the holistic nature of this puzzle. Research now encompasses Earth energy points (including ley lines and 'power spots') as well as sound and harmonics (something I was introduced to by the work of Gerald Hawkins - more later!).

Since I hope to extend my research topics in the future, I've decided to create a new, dedicated research rea on this web site. Please click on the banner graphic below, to enter the research section.

The Future??

Because I'm personally totally convinced in a genuine phenomenon (despite hoaxers and the media trying to muddy the waters), I will continue my research indefinitely, driven by a passionate desire to look for knowledge and answers to today's unanswered questions.

I also strongly believe that all 'paranormal' events are actually parts of a huge 'cosmic jigsaw' and we are slowly piecing together the bits. Even my research into ghosts, ESP and life after death strike amazing parallels with my crop circle research.

In order for you to gain a bit more background on some of my theories, I've provided a few additional links below to some articles I've previously written for Enigma Journal.

Although this article covers a number of advanced topics, I've tried to write it in a way that is understandable to beginners and those not familiar with the topics being discussed.
