A “magnetic tape” plus “reading head” were drawn as an overall image in crops near Stanton St. Bernard on June 21, 2013, while series of angular numbers in that “magnetic tape” code for 2-2-3-1-3-9, which is the longitude 2.23139 W of an Alan Turing Building at the University of Manchester  

At Stanton St. Bernard on June 21, 2013, we saw a very clever field image which resembles a “reel of magnetic tape”:  

Six angular numbers were coded into that “tape” in the order 2, 2, 3, 1, 3, 9 when reading inward from the outside. This scheme of coding is almost the same as that used at Barbury Castle on June 1, 2008 (see, except now each angle of the spiral codes for a number using the formula n x 50o instead of n x 36o.  

If we look carefully at the slide above, we can see how the crop artist cleverly varied the width of his first arc-segment twice within the first symbol “2 >”, in order to suggest that an angle of 100o represents the number “2’. Likewise angles of 150o represent the number “3”, 50o the number “1”, or 450o the number “9”. The crop artist also varied width twice within the last symbol “9”, perhaps to suggest a binary coding in real computers? Empty spaces between each arc-segment lie close to either 25o or 50o.  

The overall field image at Stanton St. Bernard, including nearby trees and road, looks like a “magnetic tape” plus “reading head”:  

This field image also resembles what is known as a “Turing machine” (see, which was the first theoretical computer invented by British mathematician Alan Turing in 1936 (see Alan Turing or What could its six numbers 2-2-3-1-3-9, inscribed onto “magnetic tape”, signify?  

One possible solution to this enigma is shown in the slide below, where the longitude of an “Alan Turing Building” at the University of Manchester equals a matching 2.23139o West:  

Whether any small standing tuft of crop, between “2” and “2” along the outside, could represent a “decimal point”, cannot be determined from aerial photographs, and at present the farmer will not allow any researchers to inspect that formation closely on the ground.  

At this time in 2013, when most of the British public (as well as farmers) seem absolutely convinced, that all crop pictures are made by local hooligans with rope and boards, they may wish to make inquiries of mathematicians at the University of Manchester, whose Alan Turing Building this crop picture seems to represent.  

P.S. A pattern of empty spaces between the angular numbers 2, 2, 3, 1, 3, 9 varies apparently as 25o, 50o, 50o, 50o, 25o, thereby suggesting a binary series 1, 0, 0, 0, 1 which is the informational part of an ASCII eight-bit character 001-10001 for the number “1”, or where it all began (with Alan Turing).

A retrospective study of Stanton St. Bernard in two phases on June 21 or 22, 2013: did it predict a new crop picture at Avebury Trusloe on July 7, 2013 using solar astronomy? 

The first major crop picture in England of 2013 appeared near Stanton St. Bernard in two phases on June 21 or 22. Phase I showed a clever, three-turn spiral which gave numbers of 2-2-3-1-3-9 by specific angular values of n x 50o. We interpreted those numbers at the time as being the longitude 2.23139o West of an Alan Turing Building in Manchester. An exhibit was in progress during June of 2013 at the London Science Museum, on the life and work of Alan Turing, so this seemed a reasonable explanation.  

More recently however, we saw on July 7, 2013 a highly impressive crop picture at Avebury Trusloe in England. Parts of it resemble certain distinctive features from Phase II of Stanton St. Bernard on June 22, 2013. For that reason, we decided to re-examine the two Stanton St. Bernard crop pictures in a retrospective sense, to inquire whether we might have missed something?  

An equally plausible interpretation of those six numbers 2-2-3-1-3-9, which were coded as angles in Phase I of Stanton St. Bernard, might be 22 degrees, 31 minutes, 39 seconds of latitude along Earth’s surface. In which case, Phase I of Stanton St. Bernard could provide us with a yearly date of July 7, when the Sun lies directly overhead at noon for such a latitude North on Earth:  

One previous crop picture at Manton Drove in June of 2012 gave three angular numbers as 16 degrees, 45 minutes and 53 seconds. Those specified a latitude North as stated, and also a yearly date of August 5, 2012 by solar astronomy, to tell when NASA Curiosity Rover would land on Mars.  

Now in Phase II of Stanton St. Bernard on June 22, 2012, we saw the image of a “solar cross”, plus a distinctive zig-zag pattern which appeared in crops again on July 7, 2013 at Avebury Trusloe:  

Unless someone can come up with a better explanation, it would appear now that the two phases of crop drawn at Stanton St. Bernard on June 21 or 22, 2013, saying “July 7 by the Sun”, were intended to lead into (or predict) another major crop picture at Avebury Trusloe on July 7, 2013.  

The “solar cross” is an ancient symbol which has been around since Sumerian times (Ea Enki, Shamash, Ninurta), and also features in the modern Christian religion. For example, Phase II of Stanton St. Bernard on June 22, 2012 bears a striking resemblance to the layout of St. Peter’s Square in Rome, as well as the 85-foot-high Vatican obelisk which resides there, which acts like the gnomon of a giant sundial:

Update on two phases of crop as seen at Stanton St. Bernard on June 21 or 22, 2013 

A “Turing Tour” was conducted at the Science Museum in London on June 18, 2013 (see or, just three days before a “magnetic tape” crop picture coding for 2.23139o W (longitude of the Alan Turing Building in Manchester) appeared in a field near Stanton St. Bernard on June 21, 2013.  

Regrettably, subsequent alterations to that beautiful field image were found on the morning of June 22, 2013. Those alterations appear of less artistic quality than the original picture. In Phase I, we saw six beautiful outer arcs, which coded cleverly by their angular lengths for 2-2-3-1-3-9 as n x 50o.In Phase II, all of those outer arcs were removed, while a crude geometric pattern was drawn inside the remaining circle:  

Likewise when viewed on the ground, fallen plants from Phase I appeared mostly high and fluffy, whereas plants from Phase appear generally crushed and flat:  

One might therefore tend to suggest, that the two phases of crop at Stanton St Bernard were made by two entirely separate sets of “artists”.

I'm not an expert, but looking at the formation stage, one can see the diagram orbit of an asteroid. A certain similarity as the asteroid '2006 RO36 ". Can be traced to June 25, 2013. In phase 2 the contrary, I see a compass. I will not attempt an interpretation, but compass responds to the earth's magnetic field and is used mainly for navigation. It could be that such an extraordinary situation affects the functionality of these devices?

It would seem the circle makers are redirecting our attention to the "Old Religion," the religion of Ancient Egypt. What makes me say so? Two things: a reel of magnetic tape (Phase I) ("Thank you," Red Collie), which is erased, and replaced by the Djed (Phase II), Ancient Egyptian Pillar of Stability. The message?  It couldn't be more clear: "Go back; technology, which on Earth culminates in digital technology, has robbed you of moral strength and fibre; as you have lost your integrity, so have you lost your way; without Maat, you are spiritually bankrupt; erase, and start over."

Second comment about the crop circle at Stanton st Bernard (2) reported 21st June 2013:

The centre line with 4 pairs of teeth of the second crop circle which appeared at Stanton st Bernard (2) reported 21st June 2013 may suggest the djed symbol (with 4 pairs of teeth !) and a lot of other things as for examples:
1°) a Japanese pagoda
2°) an auger
3°) a brush of chimney sweep
et cetera
Please dear researcher, details are very important in crop circles. Be careful of your psychological representations. See attentively the landscape. Don't forget that aliens manipulate.

I only want to say, it is a good concept to do the first circle in the opinion to a Building in Manchester .

But the building in Manchester is a museum. This one where the Egyptian statue still turns around.
you can Google that.

The second circle deals with constancy life it is the Tower of Osiris.
There is a very old story about this:

Thoth the Atlantis King go to Egypt there he works fo
r a long time as Hermes Trismegistos. As he finished writing the slaps, he lay down to sleep until his wife will be awake and call him.

This was avery long time because she was in a other Dimension.
But if she is here,he will awake.

The King will notice her.

And if both will come together, it will come to an happy end for all humans and all Planets.

Then the Pyramids around the world will send a magnetic field to the meteor.

Be sure, they don't need the pyramidon at the top.

Take whom you want:

Isis -Osiris

Jesus - Maria Magdalena

Thoth - ?

It do not matter whom, it matters that.
