The following is an excerpt from a half-hour Q & A with Earthfiles(1) investigator, Linda Moulton Howe, who was the special guest in our Live Chat with George this past Tuesday. Streamlink(2) members can read the entire transcript here(3).
Linda, what in your opinion makes crop circles?
Linda Moulton Howe
Crop formations are for me one of the most profound mysteries on the planet. As I write this, I am thinking of patterns like the 1996 fractals at Windmill Hill, Stonehenge and those that have emerged since. I am also thinking of the importance this summer of 2003 in both Wiltshire and Ohio where the intelligence behind several patterns used markers in the landscape, but away from the patterns, to line up lines or other features.
For geometry specialists, this is significant because the skill involved and the awareness of large scale relationships of patterns to the landscape is something beyond most human ability. I would like to more clearly understand what that intelligence is behind the mystery that has gone on in the modern age since the late 1980s and remains even MORE baffling today to most of us who have been to England repeatedly.
Linda, do you think you would ever be interviewed by someone like Larry King on CNN? It would be satisfying, I think, to see you efforts getting more "mainstream" media coverage.
Linda Moulton Howe
I would enjoy talking with Larry King and would welcome that opportunity. I was on Bill O'Reilly's "The Factor" a couple of summers ago to talk about crop formations. I expected him to bite my head off, but instead he seemed intrigued and that segment has been repeated several times on the "Factor" program.
