New Swirled Order

Conspiracy to illuminate patterns upon your crops.
To make you feel there is something on top.
Looking down and projecting its energy on us.

Or spaceships from another dimension paying us a little attention.
Writing out the code that we should all see.
To realize that there is something larger than you and me.
Patterns, math and science as design objects we can touch.

Maybe stomped all over the world by unemployed artists during lunch.
All of these patterns can not be man made I believe.
An ancient natural order as old as Adam and Steve.

New Age propaganda to give us puzzles maybe?
To see order in chaos to make us believe?
To cast doubts on our Gods and beliefs it would seem.
To make us look at the amazing and possibly concede.
That we are as small as microbes and know as much.

No words can explain the mysteries around me.
Only simple adjectives that don’t give them the glory.
Patterns in the wood paneling across your room.
Patterns when I close my eyes that often bloom.

Call these patterns what you will if you trust.
Call them God.
Call them Allah.
Call them Buddha.
Call them Jesus.
Call them Nature.
Call them Aliens.
Call them all a Hoax if you must.
I’ll call them Beautiful and be just fine as such.

    i’ve watched half the video, will have to catch the second half later, but it is mind-blowing, unsettling but exciting too.

    so many of us, intellectuals, so to speak, hate all this because we want to stay grounded, we want to remain fixed on our little research projects. there is a part of us that does not want to know the truth, know what i mean. even though those damn circles boggle the mind, even though we know what it would take for human beings to go out there and make that happen, even though we know the man power, the organization, the tools required, even though we know all that, we still want it to be a hoax, because if it is a hoax we don’t have to accept the obvious, that something very serious is happening.

    great poem, great post!

  • It’s the best documentary I’ve seen on the phenomena. Glad you enjoyed the post. Man made or not they are truly amazing.

    I don’t think as a species we can handle the truth.

  • just finished it over lunch. it is absolutely amazing.

    what is so wise about it, is that it takes into consideration the problematic nature of recorded images, and utilizes the complexity of basic shapes to compel us to do something that is very difficult to do, assume that we are not alone.

    in other words, in terms of Occam’s razor, that logical principle that compels us to think that the simplest explanation is usually the right one, we are forced to conclude that it is simpler to assume that aliens did this than to assume that humans did, precisely because of the complexity of the task. such an artistic thought process is very wise, and shows a very deep understanding of us as human beings.

    although it is possible for humans to replicate these things, it would take an organizational level that is not rational to assume remaining hidden.

  • Great. Glad you finished it. So if that’s the case which I agree, what should we do, if we are not alone and these patterns are from an intelligent life form which seems to be communicating with us.

    How does this change our idea of existence? For instance what if the news media decided to focus on this and the code that is being shown through the patterns as the most noteworthy news to date. For even just one week if they made it as newsworthy as Tiger Woods possible marriage problems, what would happen?

    How would making this truly newsworthy change our society? How on Earth could a handful of artists make something as complex as the Mayan calendar or the Pi pattern without being detected as a hoax?

    And if we are not alone how do they travel and how does this intelligence integrate with our culture? Does it? It truly opens up Pandora’s box. That is most likely why this is being avoided by all media as being credible. The speculation would run rampant. It’s much easier to just think of it as a prank and to think of anyone who takes them serious as a little nuts.

  • Beware the bearers of false
    gifts and their broken promises
    Much pain but still time
    There is good out there
    We oppose deception
    Conduit closing

    that sh#t is crazy!

    this is really bizarre stuff, and very very difficult to dismiss. again, i cannot imagine the amount of work it would take to construct something of this scale.

    it is entirely possible that there is a secret organization, very well funded behind this stuff. that too would be a mystery worthy of investigation, but that, in my mind is very difficult to entertain, simply because of the amount of labor i imagine would be required to build these.

  • Logocentric

    this is pretty mind-blowing. that’s all i have to say.

  • Logocentric

    that’s a possibility. maybe after the ‘terrorist’ thing has run its course, we’ll be inundated with the alien threat. i imagine somewhere that there is an orson welles playbook.

  • Yes they are mind-blowing even if they are a hoax. The only way I can see something like this being man made is if a satellite is being used somehow to project and burn the images into the crops from above. Or maybe a high altitude balloon even? Either way it would be amazingly costly I would imagine and just seems a bit too elaborate of a scheme. Nothing would surprise me though. I do think a computer of some type would have to be involved in the image making because of the seemingly absolute perfection.

    The question would remain that even if they are a hoax why? Do they make money off of them? The media barely covers them so they aren’t getting famous.

    And if they aren’t a hoax well that’s a whole other ball of wax.

  • Logocentric

    if they are a hoax, even if there is no immediate press frenzy, they’re in the record. they are seeds planted for use at a later time. a lot of people will be able to confirm seeing these images years from now. i don’t know how that might be useful to those who produced the image, but then there are a lot of things about our current relationship to publicized knowledge that i don’t understand.

    At the end of a year. Another year. I drive along the lake. Over the bridge. the lights on the poles make dots on the water. I think about accomplishing tasks. About the paper I wrote for a seminar. I am too much of a theorist to do this. I don’t know history.

    I think about the silicon-based forms that reach out with their fingers. Their strange ability to write in the wheat. Did we create them? I write, then erase, the obvious question.

    I am a thought in a pod. Thirty-five years old. Trying to find a thing to do. to be plain and truthful.

    An impression is important. No matter the risk of seeing your apples on the table in the morning. No matter the fact that your metaphors matter only to you.

    But it’s important that I say what this is. No one else does it, no one else can. There is one moment in which to act. And all that other stuff is bad acting.

    They can deconstruct this with the precision of lasers. Do I need to say anything more?

    I am not clever. I grew up on a farm.

    Behind a tall palm tree I saw another star. or a plane. Still. it isn’t right to say I don’t know.

    a professor advised me to go through my writing and take out all the reifications.

    I don’t remember what else I reminded myself to write in that moment. But it doesn’t matter.

    What does one replace it with? The reification, I mean. Something new, I suspect. Something I see, and something I find in abundance.

    Thinking is the problem for intellectuals. It isn’t a policy position. It is an appreciation for infinite diversity. I no longer compromise on this.

  • Very visual and beautiful. Thanks for sharing this.

    This line is especially nice:
