series of “dots” and “dashes” along the length of that “shield knot”
provide a cyclic Morse code for the word “E-R-R-A”? And is the crop
artist asking us to cut through a “Gordian knot”, by thinking
differently about some problem?
Battlesbury Hill on July 5, 2017, we saw drawn in crops the beautiful
and yet puzzling image of a cloverleaf-like “endless knot”. This shape
is also known as a “Celtic shield knot”, which is a universal symbol of
protection everywhere. It was not so much the image of a “knot” which
seems puzzling, but rather four “thin lines” and eight “small dots”
which were drawn enigmatically along its length.
model from a long strip of paper, then cutting it with scissors
impulse, when seeing those four “thin lines”, was to make a simple model
of this crop picture using a long, flat strip of paper, to which I added
four thin lines and eight small dots, using a black marker pen. Next I
reconstructed the exact shape and topology of the crop picture, by
twisting that long strip of paper by four full turns of 360o,
and sealing the two ends together with sticky tape.
such a model, one might ask: what happens if we “cut” that twisted (or
folded) paper strip in one or more places along its length, using a pair
all four turns of twist would be released. These shapes are called
“topological isomers” in mathematics or molecular biology, and often
studied as “rings of DNA” from living cells. Yet what else might we
A linear and
repeated Morse code for “E-R-R-A”
If we make
two cuts along the “flat strip” of that Celtic “shield knot” (or paper
model), just to the right of each third “thin line”, using imaginary
scissors (coloured orange), then we will see a linear arrangement of
“dots” and “dashes” as shown in the lower part of a slide below:

be a real code? Why else would the crop artist have drawn four “thin
lines” within a cloverleaf-like crop picture, unless he wanted us to
make small “cuts” to reveal some kind of hidden code?
“Erra” as a home world of the “Plejaren” in UFO contact reports from
“Erra” is supposedly a home world for advanced humans from the Pleiades
star cluster. They are said to have contacted Billy Meier in Switzerland
during the 1970’s (see
Planet_Erra). One of the them was called “Quetzal” (see
not such “UFO reports” are true, several crop pictures have shown
detailed images of the Pleiades star cluster, whether drawn in crops

In a field
directly next to the Battlesbury crop picture, we can see a large
collection of “fairy rings” (please see times 6:08 to 6:30 of
www.youtube.com). These cause it to resemble a “field of stars”.
There seems to be no doubt as to whether our crop artist friend is
“coming to Earth from the stars”.
possible ways to “cut open” this Celtic “shield knot”
If we were
to cut that “flat strip” along all four of its “thin lines”, then we
would get four small, rectangular strips of two “dots” each, with one
“dot” next to each “cut end”. There would then be eight “dots” in total.
Such numbers might suggest “4-8” days from the night of July 4 until a
solar eclipse at sunset on August 21? The interested reader would be
invited to study this problem more, to search for other interpretations.
example of “Morse code” in the landscape just above
We can be
fairly sure, in any case, that some kind of “Morse code” interpretation
would be plausible, because just above and to the left of where the crop
picture appeared, we can see in the landscape a “tall white stripe”
which looks like the decimal number “1” (see the top centre of a slide
the right of that tall white stripe, we can also see a “dot” and four
vertical “dashes”, along the “body” of a sphinx-like image. In Morse
code, “dot-dash-dash-dash-dash” means the number “1”.
It may have
been this fortuitous example of “Morse code”, in the landscape just
above, which encouraged the crop artist to include a “dot-dash” Morse
code of similar appearance in his drawing of a Celtic “shield knot”.
any interested reader wishes to download the slide shown above, and flip
it over by 180o, then he or she will see the “head and green
beak of a large bird”. The crop picture now lies directly over that
bird’s head as a “regal crown”. Four tall blue “stripes” and a landscape
number “8” may be seen just to the left of his “head”. These match four
“thin lines” and eight “dots” within the crop picture nearby.
a “Gordian knot”?
there seem to be many different ways to study this crop picture, all of
them interesting and suggestive. There is usually no single “correct
interpretation” for a real crop picture. Rather we must study the
totality of all its parts. Perhaps we are being asked by the crop artist
to “cut open a Gordian knot” (see
Gordian_Knot), or to do what at first seems impossible, by thinking
about some problem in a different way?
“An oracle had declared that any man who could unravel this elaborate
knot was destined to become the ruler of all of Asia. Alexander was
seized with an ardent desire to untie the knot, but after having
struggled to do so without success, he reasoned or asserted that it
would make no difference how the knot was loosed. So he drew his sword,
and sliced the knot in half with a single stroke.”
similarly, our crop artist friend (from the stars) seems ready to “cut
open” his own “Gordian knot”.
