14. THE END
On the floor is a heap of magnetic dust. A BoL hoovers over. When it feels the dust it is attracted to it - to the heap as a whole, not only the upper particles. The heap is much heavier than the circlecurrentís dust-ring and the BoL drags itself down towards the heap, towards the ground with increasing velocity. At the floor it reaches its highest velocity and thus the largest Lorentz force on the ions in the stalk. A cropcircle starts to form. When the circlecurrent survives the impact and lays on the ground the dust is sucked up and sprayed out over the area, leaving on the surface no trace of its origin... If this is true, a heap of magnetic dust is sufficient to let a cropcircle arrive. Bigger heap, bigger circle?
The oldest pictograms - I mean about 1980 - were circles. The 1996 Stonehenge-Julia Fractal; the 1996 OC-Vid; the 2001 Milk Hill formation; all the decisive formations nearly consist of circles alone.
I thought, a BoL could follow a strewed path of magnetic dust, moving horizontally. It downs crop by pushing ions to one side of the stalk when it drags itself to the next parcel of dust. It sucks up and sprays out the magnetic dust from the floor, wiping out the urge to come there again. One should strew the patterns in wintertime. Well, it is an option.
And what is this?
It looks as if crop is downed along a little stream of water. I mean, above the thought bubble. Do the BoLís follow electric conducting paths? Is it sufficient to make the soil conductive to electricity where one wants crop downed? A kind of dust, chalk maybe, lime, dry on itself but becoming totally wet in the morning dew. Who suspects chalk? Is it something like this?
Any kind of agent without intelligence will make mistakes. Some parts wonít go down; crop downed where it was supposed to remain standing; that sort of things. Crop downed in the wrong direction, into the standing walls of the border, making the circle untidy. When I reviewed my cropcircle picture collection I indeed met this quite a number of times. But most circles are so perfect.
Who or what steers the BoLís?
I propose the earthcurrent as drive of the BoL. Without drive no BoL. Most formations arrive at night, in the very early morning, they say. I think the geological source of the earthcurrent then is at its peak. If that source is the tidal kneading of the earth crust - changing direction 4 times a day, every 6 hours - then one expects a likewise peak at the same hour in daytime. Should sun rays disrupt the ion tubes? Then one expect more circles at the mentioned same hour when it is heavily clouded.
Or is it this? It still is an option when only parts are done like this, around the genuine circlesÖ Would that work? To peg them out at night in standing crop, and then recognize the staked out places in pitch darkness and down them... According to a newspaper article, the popular science magazine Quest ”has staked out a complicated shape by radio beacons and GPS-receivers”. Would that do at night? And in broad daylight and never been caught in action...?
Me when I was younger.
It is all so indecisive - weíd better start all over again.
