It’s called the “Arecibo” message, and it was a broadcast put together by the late great Carl Sagan and his colleagues. In 1974, it was sent into space via radio waves, done so at a special ceremony to celebrate the re-construction of the Arecibo radio telescope which is located in Puerto Rico. The Arecibo message was in fact the most powerful broadcast that was ever beamed out into space, and was directed at a star cluster sitting approximately 25,000 light years away.
The message was a pictorial one, and the signal depicted our planet’s location within our solar system, as well as the core principles of our math and science. A NASA antenna was used to transmit the signal, and the hope was that some sort of extraterrestrial presence or intelligence would be able to interpret it. Apart from that, the message included details about what we look like and our DNA code.
Fast forward to 27 years later, the crop circle you see below showed up right next to Britain’s largest telescope, the Chilbolton observatory, it’s actually the world’s largest fully steerable meteorological radar. The circle contains the exact format as the one we sent out in 1974, but this time, the message describes a different solar system, an image of the sender, non-human DNA, and a microwave antenna, instead of the radio-wave antenna that was depicted on ours.
A simple Google search would suffice if you want to see more pictures. It was written off as a hoax, like most crop circles are within the mainstream.
The face you see there appeared three days before the rectangular image. The face represented a new technique in crop circle generation, a screen technique that is also used for printing a face on a piece of paper.
Whether you think this response was real or a hoax, the below section will give you a reason to think before you instantly close your mind to entertaining the idea that this could be real.
Some Things You Might Not Know About Crop Circles
Not many people are aware of the fact that the crop circle phenomenon is a very real one. They happen all over the world and there have been reports of them for decades. Some of these designs are so complex and elaborate that they’ve completely baffled onlookers, researchers, and scientists alike. Not only that, many of the designs are often electrostatically charged, usually with the nodes of some of the plant stalks blasted out on one side. Some of them are also littered with strange magnetic particles. This effect has been replicated by highly localized microwave heating, which causes water inside the plants to vaporize and dislodge, thus flopping the stock completely over to one side.
This fact has had some physicists publish work on the phenomenon, concluding that the perpetrators (who have never been caught in the act of making a crop circle, anywhere) are using GPS devices, lasers, and microwaves to create these astonishing geometric forms (works of art). (source)
“Crop circle artists are not going to give up their secrets easily. This summer, unknown artists will venture into the countryside close to your homes and carry out their craft, safe in the knowledge that they are continuing the legacy of the most science-oriented art movement in history.” (source)
Other physicists, like Dr. Terence Meadon, have explained that the light energy involved is a result of atmospheric phenomena.
So, if the circle makers are indeed human, we are looking at an extremely advanced/artistic group of people with a tremendous amount of resources at their disposal.
