Is Sound Creating Crop Circles? (cont.)
By Freddy Silva
Oddly enough, Smith speculated at the time that particular sound frequencies also increased molecular activity in plants, three decades before it would be discovered in samples taken from crop circles: tests performed since 1989 by American physicist Dr. W. Levengood consistently show how the energy creating crop circles affects seed embryo and plant growth, elongates the plants’ nodes, even alter the pattern of their crystalline structure.
Since sudden and abnormal growth is also known to occur in plants affected by the energy of a crop circle, it has been postulated that microwave is behind the phenomenon. However, microwave has the ability to render biological systems sterile, and an overdose will even kill organisms. And crop circles plants are certainly alive and well. Experiments using sound on wheat at the University of Ottawa, however, also generated accelerated growth in plants, and the sound frequency applied had produced a resonant effect in the plants' cells, thereby affecting their metabolism. The frequency applied was identical to the crop circle trilling noise.
But perhaps the greatest connection linking sound to the manifestation of crop circles lies in their greatest anomaly: the permanent bending of the plants' stems. During the 1960s, laboratory experiments at Temple Buell College, Colorado, measured the effects of music on plants by subjecting them to different tones. Exposure to heavy metal music made the plants tilt in the opposite direction or die, whereas classical music lulled the plants toward the speakers. But in the case of Hindu devotional music— and specifically the music of Ravi Shankar— the stems bent in excess of 60º to the vertical, perhaps the closest any human has ever come to recreating that right angle bend common to genuine crop circles.
Further applications of Indian devotional song to the plants at Annamalai University also showed a number of biophysical alterations in the specimens—similar biophysical changes which now occur in plants collected from crop circles.
Sound as one energy source capable of creating crop circles now becomes very feasible. But what type of sound coaxes plants to bend and lie down, applying firm and gentle pressure and, given the intricacy and complexity of latter-day patterns, with a fine degree of precision?
