Reflections on 1994
One of the biggest problems encountered in 1994 was that of disinformation. Not in the conspiratorial, cover-up sense but in a prankster, muddy-the-waters type way.
mny of my fellow resarchers seemed to be either arguing amongst themselves or too busy chasing hoaxers to notice what was really going on. Sometimes it is wise to take a step back to re-avaluate the situation and gain a clearer view before proceeding.
The Barge inn
Listening to them was a complete waste of time - apart from seeing how their minds work - for they never gave proof of any of their handiwork, merely implying that they knew more than they were letting on.
It's a Hoax!
Mixed Opinions and Assessments
Year of the Scorpion
Later in the year another, even more impressive, Scorpion was to be created - just outside Devizes. My verdict was also hoax.
As previously revealed in Enigma 3, a number of 'Galaxy' formations also appeared around the Avebury and Alton Barnes area. The first, along Avebury Avenue, intrigued me (see Enigma 3) but the second, near Alton Barnes East Field, impressed me with the precision of the lay, but ultimately I diagnosed it as a hoax.
A Challenge to Hoaxers
I can understand many sceptics being hesitant to believe reports of dowsing and meditations - although I believe them to be equally valid indicators - but it's difficult to argue with electronic equipment, especially when anyone can reproduce the effects when given the equipment.
Unfortunately, results to date are far from conclusive. However, I strongly believe that a number of anomalous results so far, do warrant further research, perhaps with more sensitive equipment.
However, hoaxers are extraneous to my main research, mainly because even if not all circles are hoaxed, we still appear to be no closer to finding their true origin.
1995 shall be the year of incognito surveillance. Armed with optical night-sights I shall set out to conceal my whereabouts whilst taking part in night watches. In true, conspiratorial fashion, my location over the summer will be on a 'need to know' basis.
Hopefully, this will enable me to obtain a better set of results, which Enigma readers will be able to view in due course. I should hopefulle also be able to measure the true extent of hoaxing.
The second line of research will be more concentrated scientific measurement. Up until now, the search for the elusive litmus test has proved less than fruitful. Being realistic, I'm not sure if events of 1995 will give better results. However, I'm determined to get more results.
The Truth is Out There
Indeed, if anyone wants to try to reproduce my findings, I will describe a brief outline of the equipment I use. This was initially introduced in Enigma 1, but I shall now describe the circuit in more detail.
Fig.1 Complete circuit of my 'Gizmo'. Ready built, cased versions are available to order.
The counter is driven by the timer. This timer generates a fixed pulse every so many milli-seconds, which determines how fast the LEDs sequence from 1 through to 10.
It is this trigger input which is connected to the aerial which in turn is used as the prove to touch the corn stalks with.
Normally, most living objects will have small levels of electricity flowing through them, forming a circuit with the Earth. It is these minute signals that trip the trigger input, making the LEDs flash when the prove is touched against stems, people, plants etc.
However, my findings indicate that in some formations, dare I say genuine ones, the trigger fails to trip at all, and the LEDs simply don't flash.
This seems to me, that the formation in question somehow has the properties of being electrically earthed.
What is causing this? If you have any interesting results from using my Gizmo, please contact me, as I would like to keep my ongoing database up to date.
