“And it shall come to pass in the last days, I will show wonders in the heavens above,
and signs in the earth beneath.” - The Acts Of The Apostles 2:19
Soon, 2012 will be upon us. Depending on your point of view, on this auspicious date you
will either be preparing to adapt to your new light-body, or greeting the four horsemen of the
apocalypse, or watching the heavens for signs of the rapture. Or, if like me, you see prophesies
as mutable, reshaped by the choices made by that dysfunctional family called humanity, your
experience of the probable end of the world will be sitting at a café, sipping a good latte with
a fine woman, or man, and looking beyond 2012 and to new experiences and adventures.
Like many people, I used to believe that the final date of the Mayan calendar was best
approached with the kind of glee one associates with root canal work. But over the years my point
of view has been sculpted by better understanding the root of prophecy. Being an international
lecturer offers me the luxury of coming into contact with different people of contrasting
backgrounds and influences, and the more I experience and observe the more I have reached the
satisfying conclusion that events in life are not so much predetermined but forever adapting to
our choices which, paradoxically, re-shape our predictions of the future.
To predict is to be human. It is to provide a target whose aim is a seemingly absolute
resolution. Prediction, together with its twin sister prophecy, gives life a reliable set of
coordinates. We are scared of the unknown. And knowing the unknown, even if its outcome is
undesirable, at least offers a degree of comfort to what many see as an unpredictable existence.
But what if prophecy is not the immovable object we are led to believe, but mercurial and
mutable? After all, change is the only constant in the Universe. Everything is in flow. There is
no living system that exists in stasis, unless you happen to be a rock. But even rocks eventually
weather into sand by the ebb and flow of wind and rain and hikers. Even the Universe expands and
contracts. Rather than being a static proclamation, prophecy ought to obey a similar law.
Prophecy is the probable future realization of consequences based on events and choices
already in motion at the moment of its proclamation. The longer the timeline offered in a prophecy,
the more likely its outcome will be influenced by humanity’s gift of free will, in which case any
number of outcomes are possible over the its course of incubation. In other words, the fulfillment
of prophecy becomes dependant on the choices made by the critical mass of collective human
One of the earliest recorded uses of the term prophesy is in the Jewish Torah: nevuah, whose
root Nuv means ‘to bear fruit’ or ‘to make flourish’. Early prophesies consisted of divine words
from invisible forces, angels or God, in which humanity would be warned of the consequences of
living against the laws of nature. Clearly, a lot of Godly advice has fallen on deaf ears during
these past 3000 years.
But on notable occasions we do pay attention. As Europe approached the twilight days of the
first millennium AD, doom and gloom was prophesied to fall upon the world. And yet at precisely
12:01AM, 1001, nothing happened. No boom, and certainly no doom. (Incidentally, the same dire
predictions would repeat themselves 1000 years later). Six centuries later we see the same story
but with a far different outcome: the Puritans and other religious fundamentalists prophesied
the destruction of humanity through war, pestilence and plague— all signs of God’s displeasure
with the “filth and depravity of humanity”. In this case they got it exactly right, for by 1666
much of Europe indeed resembled the kind of dark, irrescindable hell once illustrated in the
paintings Hieronymous Bosch.
The difference was that in AD 1000 hardly anybody believed the end of the world was nigh.
Historically it was a time of relative calm and prosperity. But by the 17th Century a greater
amount of the population had become so focused on impending doom they inevitably created the very
conditions which greased the wheels of biblical destruction. It is estimated that up to one third
of the population of Europe perished through wars and plagues. In 1666 even most of London went
up in flames. For once the prophets— despite their extremist religious viewpoints— got it right.
In such a case we can see how group consciousness is capable of making prophecy
self-fulfilling. Indeed, fifteen centuries of European history teaches us that if a greater mass
of people hold an overtly pessimistic image of the future, chances are that image will manifest in
Apocalypses are seldom the result of predictions and more the release of pathological
behaviour in society which creates the situation in the end. Although Michel de Nostradame prophesied
the rise of Hitler and the Third Reich, its fulfillment was due to the choices made by humanity. At
the end of the First World War the options open to the Allies were to either rebuild Germany or
crush it. They chose the latter, and the succeeding terms imposed on a defeated people were so
destructive and humiliating that by 1928 the pre-requisite social conditions had arisen that, most
historian agree, gave rise to Nazism and its diabolical consequences.
As a further vindication of prophecy as an instrument of human choice, had the Nazis not
been appeased during the 1930s, humanity could have altered the next wave of prediction, that of a
second World War.
We currently live at the confluence of several prophecies, making the first decade of the
21st Century an important time to be alive. Here we have Edgar Cayce’s warning of the repetition of
destructive cycles; we have Nostradamus’ end of days quatrains echoing paragraphs in the biblical
Book of Revelations which in turn coincide with the end of the Mayan calendar of 2012. Just as in
the 17th Century we are due serious consequences from our lack of responsibility to others, to
ourselves and the environment. The predicted signs are: volcanism, earthquakes, plagues, atmospheric
degradation, a potential nuclear Armageddon and a final rapture. Luckily, Christ is to appear again,
just in time to inherit a barren wasteland of a planet and most of its inhabitants turned into piles
of ash (which is why I personally find this prophecy to be more metaphorical than literal).
The question at hand is, are we about to fulfill it, or is there wiggle room? Current events
suggest we are right on course for M.A.D— Mutually Assured Destruction: the rise of a neo-conservative
American administration— with fundamental Christianity for a train— which takes prophecy of a
rapture at face value, and in exacerbating arguments with the Muslim world (some would even say
most of the world) they have set events in motion whose logical conclusion is global armageddon On
the other hand, consider that the US Senate, if not entire nations, have the power to stand up to the
bullies, that the public can vote for a diplomatic, humanitarian leader, and so on.
Where does this leave 2012? Will it, won’t it? Given how this election cycle of the
presidency of the most influential nation on Earth ends exactly in 2012, the potential to influence
the outcome of these dire prophecies is enormous. But if we make the right choices, the prize is the
complete transformation of the course of humanity for the next 4000 years.
If enough people share the same dream, a critical mass will create that reality. Humans are
gifted dreamers, but even so we often lack the confidence to believe we are powerful creation
machines. “The temple of God resides within everyone,” Jesus once uttered, remember?
Throughout native cultures prophecy is strangely reminiscent of scriptures in which God
reveals Itself to humanity in subtle and helpful ways— miracles, healings, divine laws, signs— but
when these hints are ignored, cataclysms are used to wake people up, particularly those at the
slowest vibratory levels. Interestingly, at times when humanity approaches a crossroads, ‘outside’
guidance is made available in unusual ways.
One such event occurred back in the 17th Century, around the time when Europe was fulfilling
the prophecy of hell and brimstone. Unusual signs appeared in the fields of Britain in the form of
geometric shapes, circles and rings. Described as ‘witches circles’ these designs in tall crops were
seen as helpful messages from a benevolent spirit world. A second wave of sightings— this time
throughout Europe and North America— preceded events that would lead to the First World War.
I am of course talking about crop circles, the worldwide phenomenon whose dramatic
re-appearance at the end of the 20th Century once again coincides with a time of socio-political
upheaval as well as climate change. Could these glyphs indeed be those “signs in the Earth beneath”
described in the Acts of the Apostles? If so, why are they here?
The Universal Law of non-intervention states that no entity can interfere with the evolution
of another species. Thus, if crop circles are messages from a conscious source, the symbols must be
suggestive. They would serve as a type of subconscious stimulus, offering potential and ideas to
its recipients. Certainly the people who come into contact with these enigmatic symbols describe a
change in their perception, and how they feel a need to change the course of their lives. Decades
of research suggests that contact is overwhelmingly positive, people feel they have been awoken.
And yet when pressed, they stumble to articulate the experience. They say they know what the symbols
are but often cannot logically explain what they mean. This suggests that some type of cellular
information is by-passing the logical brain, awakening instead the genetic and irrational part of
While I was researching this possibility for my book ‘Secrets In The Fields’ I was given
information by the geologist Gregg Bradden, who showed me how one particular crop circle matches
the parts of the human DNA molecule which are not coded for protein. In other words, it stimulates
parts of our DNA that allow information to be imprinted thereby awokening something in our genetic
For this to occur, a bioelectromagnetic signal needs to be transferred from one organism—
the crop circle— to the other, the human body. Many of the 80 eyewitnesses to crop circles recall a
beam of light accompanying the creation of the glyphs. Light is an electromagnetic signal, and DNA
relies on light for receiving information. It is also known that genuine crop circles contain a
measurable EM field which can last up to five years after the original shape in the crop has been
harvested; furthermore, ripples of energy have also been detected flowing away from the epicentre
of the designs. This demonstrates that the crop circles are living, breathing, organisms.
But there’s more. Electrical equipment has a tendency to be interfered with inside the
perimeter of crop circles, as do human beings who enter them, and humans are electromagnetic. As
it happens, thousands of people have not just had such experiences, they also report being healed.
There is a second part to this encoding. Crop circles are typically geometric; and those
that are not contain the geometric code concealed within their framework. The most typical geometries
employed are the pentagram and the hexagram. Now, geometry is the ultimate systems language because
it underlies every biological and mineral element in the universe, including the human body. At
out core, the crystalline structure of human DNA is made up of a series of repeating crystals in
the shape of pentagrams and hexagrams. Since the crop circles are living biological entities, such
biogeometry would have a sympathetic effect on the organisms with which they interact, either
through physical contact or simply by looking at their image.
The crop circles are also appearing at the intersections of the earth’s magnetic lines of
energy, which means they imprint information directly into the planet’s energetic field. Every
organism on Earth is therefore in contact with this information. So perhaps the crop circles are
appeared at this crucial juncture to remind us of a preferred choice of direction. People are being
offered the choice to engage with the coming human evolution, or conversely, to resist it. We need
to remember that we always have choice. One things is certain: the presence of these signs is palpable,
given their polarizing effect— people either react very positively to the circles or they debunk
them vehemently. In fact, the tenacity with which the debunkers have operated is akin to a 17th
Century witch hunt.
It seems very plausible, then, that crop circles are part of the ‘end of days’ scenario,
when signs from a helpful universe come to aid humanity through another fork in its evolutionary
road. But to say they are prophetic is still a matter for discussion. Take the famous case of the
‘Solar System” crop circle, so-called because of its uncanny resemblance to our inner solar system
to an accuracy of 99%, and complete with its own asteroid belt.
What makes this glyph worthy of investigation is that the circle representing the Earth is
missing from its orbit. Some have said this points to a future date when the Earth will cease to
exist. Given that messages from the heavens are typically helpful and positive, I prefer my colleague
Prof. Gerald Hawkins’ interpretation: it points to milestones in propulsion. The late Prof.
Hawkins— emeritus astronomer at the University of Boston— calculated that the position of the
other three planets in this design appeared in such a configuration twice during the 20th Century:
the first date occurred when the Wright Brothers made aviation history on a beach in North Carolina
by proving that a heavier-than-air object could fly; the second date points to the first Mars
orbiter and its flight to the red planet. The next time we shall see this configuration in the
solar system will be in 2032. So what will happen, another milestone in aviation? Perhaps. Crop
circles have been shown to encode anti-gravity technology, so who knows. But one thing is certain,
the Circlemakers seem positive that humanity will still be alive and well and in a creative mood
two decades after 2012.
People have also been interacting with the crop circles to the point where the glyphs can
be predicted by date, location and appearance. And this, for me, is one of the most important
messages behind the phenomenon, for it shows that not only there exists a conscious source behind
their creation, but it illustrates just what a powerful tool human intent and intuitive ability
In 1999 I conducted a closed experiment to see how humans could interact with crop circles.
The idea was to solicit the time, location and shape of the last major pattern of the season in
southern Britain— home to 75% of the world’s crop circles. I asked people from various walks of
life: an accountant, two psychics (from both sides of the Atlantic), a software designer, another
researcher, and an editor. I joined the experiment by using dowsing as a means to predict the
information. Using that age-old intuitive technique I was able to pinpoint a field at Roundway
in England. The shape seemed to be a seven-pointed star with elements of a nine-pointed star,
which I found confusing to visualize. Interestingly, everyone else gave me near-identical
information; the time was the only element that seemed to throw people off, the discrepancy being
three days. Then again, time is not a universal constant but a human artifact. At least we all
agreed it would appear during the last week in July.
The solicitations were made in confidence, and none of the people I asked were aware of
each others’ responses. As the magic week drew near I worked directly with a respected psychic to
fine-tune the time, and we were able to narrow its predicted appearance down to 36 hours; I even
booked a private plane ahead of time so as to be the first to fly over the glyph (but never
disclosing the location to the pilot). On the appointed hour we were the first two people to fly
over a brand new crop circle complete with seven-pointed geometry (later I discovered a nine-pointed
geometry within its design). And precisely at the predicted coordinates. The design appears to
describe the entire interchange between audible sound and visible light, the very bones of creative
Historically, peaks and troughs in the Earth’s magnetic field strength coincide with the
creation of sacred sites, indicating that our ancestors were well aware of these key moments or
ages, and used such pivotal moments to experience more rapid development of their consciousness.
Of course if there was greater resistance to this from a wider band of society then the inverse
would occur, and more dark ages would follow. That the crop circles themselves are created according
to the very same techniques employed in stone circles, pyramids, Gothic cathedrals and other
sacred sites— magnetism, geometry and sound— says a lot about their intended purpose, and even more
so considering their sudden appearance at the close of the 20th Century coincides with a major
trough in the earth’s magnetic field.
Whether you choose to view crop circles as symbols from a creative universe or as sacred
sites— or both— their timely appearance and their ability to be predicted and perhaps to prophesy,
demonstrates that someone, somewhere has a vested interest in ensuring that humanity rises to its
greatest potential at this urgent hour. Experiments at Princeton’s P.E.A.R. laboratories show that
people’s focused intentions affect such mechanical constants as the timing of a computerized
drumbeat and the motion of pendulums. Thousands of trials reveal machines’ obedience to the thoughts
of their human operators, and that the human mind is capable of affecting approximately one in every
10,000 random events. Given such powerful abilities, all prophescies of doom surrounding the end of
the world can be turned around if we choose to focus on prediction as a positive and creative tool.
According to chaos theory, an evolutionary transition to a higher state is accompanied by the
breakdown of order in the harmonic field. When new energy is introduced, as in the case of crop
circles, it reverses the process of disintegration so that matter can be reorganized and enabled
to achieve this higher state. Order breaks into chaos that builds into order. As science writer
James Gleick explains, “The greater the turbulence, the more complex the solution, the greater the
jump to a higher state.” And there is no doubt that right we are immersed in an ocean of great
But as the saying goes, “you have the whole world in your hands’. And when 2012 comes, I
know where I’ll be: in a café with a fine woman, and a grand latte in my hands.
