070707 East Field Wheat Formation: Lab Analysis

“I’ve never seen this bimodal germination bimodal before. This is totally anomalous. …These two entirely different populations of growth rates in these East Field seed samples indicates that there were two entirely different types of energy that hit the field at pretty much the same time.”

– W. C. Levengood, Biophysicist

October 4, 2007  Grass Lake, Michigan – The most extraordinary crop formation of 2007 was discovered on Saturday, July 7th, around 3:20 AM in the East Field of Wiltshire, England, by three people on a night watch. One was researcher and photographer, Winston Keech, who had video cameras aimed at the East Field, capable of night vision and infrared. The other two eyewitnesses were Gary King and his friend, Paula Presdee-Jones, from Cardiff, Wales. Back in July, I interviewed Gary King about the fact that at approximately 3:08 AM, all three saw a great flash of bright light over the East Field. One of Winston Keech’s infra red cameras also captured the flash before the ran camera out of videotape. See 071907 Earthfiles.

Terje Toftenes, Video Producer and Managing Director for a production company in Norway, contacted Winston Keech to organize enhancement analysis of the videotape. All four presented evidence at a press conference in Alton Barnes, Wiltshire, on July 19, 2007. That press conference included Win’s camera footage which showed there was no crop formation in the East Field at 1:35 AM. But after the flash of light 90 minutes later, Winston Keech looked through his cameras at approximately 3:20 AM. He and the others could make out shadows in the East Field that had not been there earlier. After the sun rose, by 4 AM the astounding East Field formation was clearly there in all of its 150 circles of many varying diameters spread across 1,033 feet in a pattern no one had ever seen before.

I talked with Charles Mallett, owner of the Silent Circle Cafe near Cherhill, Wiltshire, about collecting wheat and soil samples so that biophysicist W. C. Levengood could analyze them in his Michigan lab. Since the early 1990s, biophysicist Levengood has studied more than 300 crop formations from England, Canada, the United States and other parts of the world.

He and I talked about Gary’s and Paula’s description as they entered the East Field pattern for the first time around 4 AM on July 7. Gary said it felt and sounded like they were stepping on crystal glass that crunched under their feet. Further, I expected that Levengood would find a high concentration of magnetite in the formation soils as we have found in some other formations.

But as surprising as that bright flash of light and huge formation was to the three eyewitnesses, the lab results have turned out to be surprising as well.


Interview:

W. C. Levengood, Pinelandia Biophysical Laboratory, Grass Lake, Michigan: “This formation was a very puzzling one since I’ve never seen anything before that did not follow a consistent pattern. For example, in the first page of my report, you’ll notice I have Table I showing significantly altered node lengths in the control plants taken at different quadrants of the field.

“One of the characteristics of wheat is how uniformly it grows and how you can depend on controls to give you an idea of what’s going on in the field. But in this East Field, couldn’t do that. In the northwest quadrants, the samples Charles Mallett took there showed statistically significant in node length and a decrease in seedling development factor. Again, neither one of them (as control samples) should show any significant difference between the northwest and the southeast and yet the control plants collected from those parts of the field outside the formation were significantly affected.

SO THE IMPLICATION IS THAT THE ENERGY THAT HIT THE EAST FIELD WAS SO GREAT THAT IT WENT BEYOND THE BOUNDARIES OF THE CROP FORMATION AND AFFECTED THE WHOLE FIELD.

Oh, definitely. It affected the entire field. In fact, you could say there was no way to get real controls in this East Field – it was so overall affected (by energy impact).

Microwaves and Ion Electron Avalanches

In most of the crop formations, the predominant energy is in the form of the microwave region of the electromagnetic spectrum. In laboratory work long ago, we found that field strengths in the order of 35,000 volts per centimeter that the seeds were bigger and subsequent seedling growth can be greatly reduced. That certainly appears that was the cases here in the East Field wheat.

I think in this formation that the ion electron avalanches predominated over the microwave energies. There is a high probability that the ion electron avalanches account for the bright flash of light observed when the formation occurred (around 3:20 AM on July 7, 2007.)

A number of years ago, John Burke went to England and examined crop formations with an electrostatic voltmeter and found transient induced electrostatic charges in the newly formed crop formations. These rapidly dissipated in a short time.

A very high electrostatic on the plants could very easily explain the sound, as they put it, walking through – was it popcorn?

OH, THAT THE PLANTS WERE CRYSTALLIZED AFTER THE EYEWITNESSES WENT DOWN TO THE FIELD.

That’s exactly what you would find if there were tiny discharges between the plants and the field soil surface or between the surfaces plant-to-plant. You’d hear a crackling or like breaking glass sound.

IT WOULD BE THAT FEET WERE INTERACTING WITH ELECTROSTATIC CHARGES?

That’s correct.

THE BRIGHT FLASH OF LIGHT THAT THE THREE EYEWITNESSES SAW WOULD BE A PLASMA DISCHARGE IN THE ATMOSPHERE?

That’s right. When you get field strengths that high – over 30,000 volts per centimeter – you can knock electrons out of the outer orbits of air molecules and atoms, such as oxygen, nitrogen and so on. After the energy passes and the unstable ions drop back to normal energy, it can give off a photon or even ultra violet energy.

WHICH WOULD BE THE BRIGHT LIGHT, BUT WHAT WOULD CAUSE A 30,000 VOLTS PER CENTIMETER PULSE OF ENERGY IN THE SKY?

That’s just a drop in the bucket compared to what you have in thunderstorms.

RIGHT, BUT WE’RE TALKING ABOUT THE ENERGY THAT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR CROP FORMATIONS AND THE PUZZLE THAT ALL OF US HAVE IS WHAT IS THE SOURCE OF THIS ENERGY?

It’s probably a plasma from the ionosphere.

AND IT COULD BE DIRECTED BY AN INTELLIGENCE?

It could be, or could not be. (Laughs) I don’t know how the plasmas could do all this and not be directed.

BY INTELLIGENCE. IT IS ALL SO COMPLEX THAT IT APPEARS THAT AN INTELLIGENCE IS USING A PLASMA EFFECT TO CREATE THE CROP FORMATIONS?

Yes.”

When biophysicist Levengood studied seeds from the East Field formation and controls that Charles Mallett collected and I had shipped by Fed Ex to the Michigan lab, Levengood ended up with the most anomalous germination pattern he says he has ever seen. The first step in his lab work with seeds is to organize 30 seeds from each clump of plant samples and clump of control samples. He carefully places the seeds in a straight line across each commercial germination paper, rolls the germination papers up and places them in a controlled temperature and dark germination chamber. Usually in three days, he finds the seedlings have germinated and he measures the first seed leaves.

But with the East Field seeds, on the third day that he unrolled the germination papers, there was nothing to measure. There was no significant germination in any of the seedlings.

He returned the germination papers to the closet and waited until day 5. But there still was no germination. So he went on to day 7. By then, nothing was normal. There were only a couple of seeds that were at 50% germination and some were around 10% germination.

Biophysicist Levengood decided to go all the way to 14 days by setting the germination rolls in normal sunlight. By day 14, all the seedlings looked good as if something had happened. Levengood measured the lengths of the seedling shoots. Some that had been only in the 20% to 30% germination rate at 7 days had grown to 80% up to 97% – the highest – which is the range of normal germination for wheat seedlings. That’s what the seedlings should have been after a week – not 14 days later.

Further, sample Number 10 from the East Field – which earlier had  the lowest germination of all the seeds – had increased in length from 10% germination at 7 days to 90% germination on the 14th day. Biophysicist Levengood has been investigating seed growths and filing patents for processes to accelerate seed growth since his earliest research days at the University of Michigan half a century ago. In all his decades of investigations, he had never seen such germination anomalies before these 2007 East Field seeds.

W. C. Levengood:  “I’ve never seen this bimodal germination happen before. This is totally anomalous.

WHAT IS YOUR HYPOTHESIS THAT WOULD EXPLAIN WHY?

These two entirely different populations of growth rates in these East Field seed samples indicates that there were two entirely different types of energy that hit the field at pretty much the same time. This produced what are called bimodal distributions in the plants. You very seldom see this. If you take a normal histogram – where you take a bunch of people’s heights and you plot them and you want to know how many people were at the height of 50 to 55 inches, 55 to 60 inches and so on, and you plot a bar chart showing the number in each one of those categories, you get what is called a normal distribution, or bell shaped curve. The peak, or middle, of the bell shape would be the average – or the most people – while the ends would be the shortest and tallest.

To get two bell shaped curves, a bimodal, something very different is going on in the two populations. One analogy we can take is to suppose that you wanted to go into a maternity ward and measure the heights of all the people on that floor only in the maternity ward and only in those people that were either workers or doctors or newborns in that ward.

You get two entirely different heights. You get a bell shaped curve with little people around 15 to 20 inches and people who are up to 60 to 72 inches or more. OK, you plot those and you get two bell shaped curves. There we know what the difference is. The people were generated at quite different times. But in the case of the seeds, they were all germinating at the same time.

Since there are two major energies that affect the plants, in most cases it is the microwave energy which predominates. That’s what produces the expulsion cavities, causes the nodes to expand internally from internal heating. You could never do that with normal external heating.

Then there is the other component called ion electron avalanches, which can greatly affect the growth and vigor of the seeds. But in the ion electron avalanches, this is interesting because it goes through a lot of affects from low energy ion electron avalanches to high energy.

From my laboratory studies, John Burke and I have a patent on producing ion electron avalanches to enhance the growth of seeds. But what we found is that when you get up in the range of over 30,000 volts per centimeter, you greatly reduce the seed vigor and the subsequent seedling growth. In other words, it does damage. But at the low end of avalanches, you can actually enhance the growth. We’ve also seen this in crop formations.

SO THAT BLAST OF LIGHT THAT THE THREE EYEWITNESSEES SAW OVER THE EAST FIELD MIGHT HAVE BEEN A RELEASE OF LIGHT FROM PLASMAS AS THE ION AVALANCHES WERE INTERACTING WITH THE WHEAT?

Exactly. When you’re up in electrostatic potentials that high and causing a plasma to form and discharge, the energy can knock off electrons from atoms in the air, or molecules, like oxygen and nitrogen. These electrons – after the energy is gone – they can drop back to their former low-energy state in the atom. When they do that, they give off a photon. This could easily account for the flash of light observed when the formation occurred.

Another thing is that the likelihood that the plants had such a high electrostatic charge on them that when the eyewitnesses walked on them it sounded like they were walking on glass. This could be tiny discharges that crackled and snapped.

SO IT’S NOT AS IF THE WHEAT HAD CHANGED ITS MOLECULAR STRUCTURE TO SOMETHING THAT WAS GLASS-LIKE. IT’S THAT THERE WAS ENOUGH ELECTROSTATIC FIELD ENERGY ON THE PLANTS SO THAT PUTTING FEET ON THEM WOULD HAVE THAT POPPING SOUND.

Not only on the plant, Linda, but in the upper layers of the soil. There would been interactions between these electrostatic charges and the air molecules.

THAT WOULD EXPLAIN WHY, OVER THE YEARS, WHEN SOME PEOPLE WENT INTO SOME CROP FORMATIONS, THEY HEARD THE SOUNDS OF ‘RICE CRISPIES POPPING IN A BOWL’?

Yeah, sure, exactly.

NONE OF US YET KNOW WHAT IS BEHIND THE CREATION OF THAT PLASMA ENERGY.

That’s right. We can’t pinpoint it, no.

IT COULD BE AN ADVANCED INTELLIGENCE.

Yeah, I can’t deny it. This is order out of chaos.

THAT WHATEVER HAPPENED IN THE EAST FIELD, THE PLASMA ENERGIES INTERACTED WITH THOSE 150 CIRCLES IN WAYS YOU HAD NOT QUITE SEEN BEFORE?

Right.

WHY DO YOU THINK IN A PATTERN THIS BIG WITH INTENSE, CHAOTIC ENERGIES THAT YOU FOUND NO MAGNETITE IN THE SOIL?

That’s easy to answer because I think it fits right in with the theory that we have that the magnetite is the result of a close encounter between a crop formation and a cloud of meteoritic material. So, in this case, there just was not any chance encounter (with iron dust) between the spinning plasma in the upper atmosphere and the East Field formation. Perhaps the meteoritic activity was low when that formed.

SO, YOUR HYPOTHESIS IS THAT IF THERE ARE NOT HIGH LEVELS OF METEORITIC DUST WHERE THE SPINNING PLASMAS COMES DOWN, WE’RE NOT GOING TO FIND HIGH CONCENTRATIONS OF MAGNETITE IN CROP FORMATIONS?

That’s right.”
