Amazing tricks with an helicopter. I would not try this though for fear of sending it around my head unvoluntarily...

As for crop circle, according to some researchers of the phenomenon, it can be dated back to 300 years old in the English countryside. So, obviously the techonlogies wasn't there at that time for remotely guiding the process of making a cropcircle.

unfportunately samm, the crop circles from 300yrs ago were just that, circles, not enormously complex geometric patterns, and are easily attributed to ordinary atmospheric phenomena such as tornado's, dust-devils etc.
if the aliens WERE trying to contact us using mathematics, encoded into wheat fields (for some bizarre reason), then why are they using mathematics that we already know, not some radically different, unknown mathematical formulae and constructs?
a civilisation advanced enough to cross interstellar distances should know rather more than us i'd have thought, but unfortunately, they don't seem to be any further advanced than Mandelbrot formulas & (badly encoded) Pi ratios.
a little disappointing wouldn't you say.....

I haven't say it has to be Aliens. That is but one theory. In some cases it could be ionized plasma vortex or ball lightning making these strange designs. I am inclined to think that there may be more into the cropcircle phenomenon than a modern prank. I do not know.

Very cool video... but an explination fro crop circles... in my proffessional opinion I would have to say no :no:

The secret of life is'nt trying to figure out the secret, its about living it.

yup, easily attributed atmospheric phenomena.....

it would be interesting if there were more to it than artists & wind patterns Sam, but for the life of me, i can't figure out why anyone would want to travel hundreds of trillions of miles just to draw pictures in the wheatfields of wiltshire.
(but stranger things have happened i suppose.....)

Probably for the same reason we don't spout math at ants in an effort to communicate.

You have to understand your audience, their prejudices and fears, as well as their level of intelligence. Don't scare the locals! Sneak your message into the environment in such a way that the dumb ones don't get freaked out, and the more intelligent are intrigued, recognizing that this is something extraordinary, but not threatening.

Aliens who manage to get to this podunk planet on the outskirts of the galaxy are not going to be especially impressed with humans, no matter how special we think we are. We shouldn't be surprised if they talk to us as if we were idiots until they find an intelligent person who is able to understand their simplified attempts at communication.

Too high tech. More likely, this explains crop circles:

ants aren't sentient, nor are they capable of grasping mathematics.
humans are.
your analogy doesn't work.
.


You have to understand your audience, their prejudices and fears, as well as their level of intelligence.
.
then they should be making crop circles at the CERN complex instead of wiltshire.
clever aliens.
.
Don't scare the locals! Sneak your message into the environment in such a way that the dumb ones don't get freaked out,
.
humans usually run screaming from the sight of shapes in grass.
don't they.
.
and the more intelligent are intrigued,
.
such as crop circle "researchers".
.
recognizing that this is something extraordinary, but not threatening.
.
it's a picture.
in wheat.
hardly the very definition of "extraordinary"
or scary.
.


Aliens who manage to get to this podunk planet on the outskirts of the galaxy are not going to be especially impressed with humans,
.
but yet they chose to come here anyway, and try to get our attention by drawing purty pictures in grass?
boy, aren't THEY impressive.
.
We shouldn't be surprised if they talk to us as if we were idiots
.
by drawing pictures on farms?
and not being able to encode Pi properly into a circle?
hardly the height of patronisation really.
.
until they find an intelligent person
.
again, like your average "cereologist"
.
who is able to understand their simplified attempts at communication.
.
or at least make s**t up to have them appear as something more profound than a couple of guys with ropes & planks of wood.
