The most difficult part in cropcircle investigation is to keep options open. To admit time after time ground of decision is insuffient and options have to be kept open. The OCVid is too bad of quality and John Wheyleigh has never been found again. This really is the most difficult part.
Known to accompany cropcircles are BoLís (Balls of Light) or ORBís. A BoL is a sphere, and I thought maybe a BoL is the same as globe-lightning, and lightning is an electric current. The picture arose of a circular current, a lightning in a little circle.
Assume such a BoL consists of a circular direct current in the horizontal plane, see fig. 2.1, call it a circlecurrent. Current consists of running electrons. According to accepted rules in electricity, when the electrons in fact are running in one direction through a conductor, it is said the current runs in the opposite direction.
Fig. 2.1The question what drives the circlecurrent will be discussed later. The BoL as well as the circlecurrent in it is assumed to be electrically neutral and so there is no net electric force working. Since the BoL is assumed to float freely in the air, we assume for the moment that the conductor where the circlecurrent is running through consists of ionized air molecules, a circular tube of positively charged ionized air molecules. A little bit like lightning, but much weaker. Later a more substantial proposal will be added. Then will be clear why the circlecurrent should remain horizontal anywhere it moves instead of tipping over like a plane.
In school you learnt any electric current is surrounded by a magnetic field. If the conductor is a circular wire and an electric current is running through it, the accompanying magnetic field is as shown in fig. 2.2.
Fig. 2.2This is the agent that I mean: a BoL consisting of a horizontal circular direct current can make cropcircles. In the next page I give a first worked out example how.
