Secrets in the Fields

£14.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Crop circles embody a form of communication as old as recorded history and more modern than our current level of science. What are they? Who makes them? Why are they here? This book examines the history of crop circles, human interactions with them, their probable implications and their effects on our current worldview.

Author Freddy Silva, a resident of Wessex which is the four county area of the UK that has been host to 90% of the world's crop circles, delves deeply into the evidence for crop circles' authenticity. In arguing that the circles are trans-human events, he discusses the role of electromagnetism and its effects, UFO phenomena and their relation to crop circles, the relationship between crop circles and healing, evidence supporting psychic ability and language's ability to affect information consciously and subconsciously (this section is sure to stimulate those who suspect that crop circles are a hoax).

He tells:
- how to distinguish a hoaxed circle from a genuine one
- what the magnetic field disturbances might mean
- what time distortions observed at crop circles might mean
- how sound, light and microwave energy may be involved
- how a theory of music may account for their creation
- what the circle images mean

Deeply informative and copiously illustrated, the book will inspire readers to re-examine preconceived ideas as Silva's explanations are detailed and well researched and avoid technical jargon. Footnotes and an extensive bibliography encourage further exploration.
