Crop circles represent many things for many people. I have never stood in one so I am not qualified to comment in that regard. However, I have spent many hours totalling days immersed in creating mandalas based on the geometry exhibited in crop circles.
There is a sacred code that keeps recurring in many circles year on year. This code was known by the architects of Stonehenge, was harnessed by the philosopher Plato and points to the patterns of the heavens. Literally. This sacred code is made up of certain power numbers: 5040 is particularly significant.
Cosmologically, the radius of the earth in miles is 3960, and the radius of the moon in miles is 1080. Add these two together and you get 5040. Mathematically, it divides the numbers one to ten at the pivotal number seven. 1 x 2 x 3 x 4 x 5 x 6 x 7 = 5040. 7 x 8 x 9 x 10 = 5040.
One crop circle appeared overnight at Whitesheet Hill in England in 2010. There were 168 small circles (84 solid and 84 with centres), multiply those by the medium-sized 30 circles (168 x 30) and you get that magic number 5040.
Gematria is an ancient art that connects letters of the Greek alphabet to each number. You can use this to translate numbers into their corresponding words. When you apply the convention of gematria to the number 5040, it means either the good or the holy.
Just for fun let’s take a look at the seven large circles remaining. Seven divided into 5040 gives you 720 – another number of this cosmic code, and through gematria, it means divine intelligence.
So there you have it: this crop circle is pointing to ‘the good, the holy, divine intelligence’ of the creative principle itself. Whoever are the authors of these divine imprints, there’s no doubt they have very enlightened minds.
