Although I feel compelled to write essays about some crop circles each season, I often wonder why I have the need to do so.
My answers to myself usually go like this:
- the formations themselves are so mysterious, unpredictable and fascinating
- they do no harm and reveal amazing knowledge about the past and our ancient heritage as a species
- they often give us new information or insights into how things are or could be
- I really like the symbolic aspect they embody and the unusual combination of different cultural icons to make a new symbol
- they are beyond political, economic, national and religious ideological boundaries
- they work a little like dreams in terms of communication
- the appearance (of many formations) is not controlled by any known factor(s) on Earth
- they appeal to many different people in many different ways and at multiple levels
Perhaps we will never know what it's all about in an absolute fashion, but maybe by paying attention to spontaneous events in our own lives and to such unique events as the crop circles we may experience really amazing and fulfilling glimpses of answers to the question(s) of life along the way.
