Environment Science and Social Research as Plymouth

University. Interested in Philosophy and the Arts

Matthew Williams

A self-designated ‘land artist’, he claims chat, with collaborators, he has been responsible for making many crop formations in recent years.

He founded the Centre for Crop Circle Studies in 1990 as a research organisation and has held the posts successively of chairman and president. He has written, lectured and broadcast widely on the subject over the years.

The Centre for Crop Circle Studies

The CCCS was founded by Michael Green and the late Ralph Noyes in April 1990 in the belief that the crop circle phenomenon offers remarkable challenges to understanding which will only be met by drawing on a wide range of insights and expertise in many different fields, The principal objectives of the CCCS are to encourage this interdisciplinary approach and to ensure it is sustained by sound research and reliable information. In furtherance of these objectives the CCCS has established a comprehensive database containing the numbers, types, geographical distribution and incidence, worldwide, of crop circle occurrences, together with other factual information that seems relevant in the light of research. It has undertaken numerous studies, the results of which have been published through its magazine The Circular. Is encourages all those who have a serious interest in the phenomenon and share our objectives to join the CCCS or to affiliate with it,

The Scientific and Medical Network is an informal international group consisting mainly of qualified scientists and doctors, together with psychologists, engineers, philosophers, therapists and many other professionals. The aim of the Network is to deepen understanding in science, medicine and education by fostering both rational analysis and intuitive insights. The Network was founded in 1973 and now has more than 2.000 Members in over 50 countries. It questions the assumptions of contemporary scientific and medical thinking, so often limited by exclusively materialistic reasoning.
