This is the latest intricate crop circle to appear overnight in a British wheat field.

The mysterious pattern resembles the ancient Tibetan Buddhist symbol of an 'endless knot' - a complex loop of lines and circles used to illustrate the eternal flow of time.

The symbol has many meanings but because it has no beginning and no end many people who follow the religion say it represents the wisdom of Buddha.

Lol @ one of the top rated responses: Conventionally placed festival in the next field obviously had nothing to do with it.  

Clearly this crop circle like the many others is the work of humans. You aren't saying it's the work of Buddhist aliens, are you? :lol:

Every crop circle is the work of humans. People who say "they are too big and intricate to be made by humans" obviously doesnt realize all you need to make an intricate crop circle is time, a board, and a firm grasp of basic math.

"..bit of a sceptic" Matthew Williams?  This wouldn't be the known circle hoaxer Matthew Williams by any chance?

Who is the skeptic: the realist who won't accept belief, or the believer who won't accept reality?

   (article wouldn't open for me,, so i can't see the crop pattern..but i'm guessing there are curves in it.)

   Wouldn't you also need a length of rope to attempt to create a pattern with curves.. like this one?
  Or a levitating giant with a really big drafting compass?

   *...   i can't figure out how a person would mark out these curves,  even with a piece of rope.
Where would you secure the end of the rope for each of these curves ? ? ¿ ?

It was just a link to a site whose members are "professional" crop circle makers. They have made some really intricate designs. And yes, I forgot to mention, a length of rope is pretty much always used.

Honestly, they need to charge all those "professional circle hoaxers" for the wilful destruction of property - that's someone's livlihood they're playing silly buggers with!

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

It's beautiful.... I'd be upset too, though, if it were my field.  Regardless of whether it was humans or aliens.

It's become a form of "graffiti", a new artistic fad, these folk know their actions will bring attention and that's all they want.

Also, just like many graffiti artists, I think these kind are putting some serious talent to waste, they can't exactly leave a sig.

Incarcerate them and give them a paint brush.

In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

I agree with Hats, this food taken out of the mouth of that farmers family. I guess growing up in a farming community gives me a different perspective on this. I  remember my brother and some friends accidentally setting a farmer's corn field on fire (smoking). He ran to the farmers house and told him his field was on fire and helped him put it out.  When my Dad told him it was my brother's fault the guy was just grateful my brother had taken responsibility for what happen and help save his crop he wasn't angry.  Farming is iffy in the best of times, you don't need somebody destroying your crop for fun.

crop circles are indeed destruction of property, but i think those professional ones i linked up there do it as a paid gig, and they dont break any laws. either way, crop circles are silly and the fad should go away. I dont really understand why its lasted this long.
