'(But then I also want to know why crop circle formations aren't bigger news....)'
Me too! I got some info on that if ya wanna have tea and chat sometime... I'm fascinated by them. And I think they're purposeful. Did ya see the movie 'The Last Mimzy'? Very interesting premise - goes over Mandalas being maps to portals in the universe. Nothing is by mistake. Everything is divine design - so we actually think crop circles aren't that big a deal? We're so naive.
The stuff I listened to said they're done sonically.
