An Overview of "The Gift" By Doug Ruby

"The Gift" is a book about the decipherment of the crop circles. Many of the people who have read the book whole heartedly agree with me that I have, indeed, deciphered the crop circles. This statement should be tempered with the acknowledgement that there are many forms of information being communicated by the crop circles. Consequently, it will be through a group effort that the crop circles are deciphered in their entirety. With this said, let's take a quick look at what I have discovered and in the process offer you an overview of the book.

After reading a number of crop circle books, I arrived at three rather stunning conclusions. First, a very benign and considerate group of extraterrestrials were creating the crop circles. Second, the crop circles comprise a puzzle which, when deciphered, will convey information that is unknown to humanity at this time. Third, the key to deciphering the crop circles lay within the simplest crop circles, as they contain the instructions to decipher the more complex formations. All of these conclusions proved correct and each is individually addressed at length in the book.

Since I had established that the instructions would be found in the simple formations, I began with them. These formations consisted of a flat disc with a drawing inscribed on It, such as intermittent circles, or the petals of a flower. As I fiddled around with these simple formations a number of basic instructions slowly became apparent. While a lot of thought accompanied this process, the answers were essentially self evident. The only requirement was the correct approach and the door swung open on greased hinges.

The instructions conveyed through these discs are as follows:

I) The formations are meant to be picked up from the field and reduced to a size that we can work with;

2) A small model should be made of the formation - which in these cases are flat discs;

3) The discs are meant to be spun;

4) The discs are best spun by mounting them on a central post;

5) When spun, the discs undergo a metamorphosis which reveals the information to be communicated.

Armed with these basic principles and a good "feel" for the crop circles, I began to decipher my first pictogram. The complex crop circles usually contain a long centre post with a number of circles overlying it. These complex formations come in a variety of shapes with all sorts of appendages attached to them. The English coined the name "Pictogram" to describe them as a group.

I have chosen a simple pictogram, Barn Head, to decipher for you. Take a look at diagram A in the Barn Head diagram. It depicts the actual crop circle as it appeared in the field. As I pondered this formation a thought struck me that the three circles were actually discs which should be rotated ninety degrees on the post. I was lead to this thought through my previous experiences with the flat, simple discs, which had forced me to use a centre post in order to spin them.

I would now like to bring your attention to the two rectangles located within the large, centre circle of diagram A. As the centre disc is rotated ninety degrees on the shaft, these rectangles also rotate ninety degrees on their sides. They rotate both above and below the centre disc as indicated in diagram B and C. The reason for these rectangles is quite simple. When the discs, or circles, are lying flat in the field, it is impossible to give them a thickness. However, through the use of these rotating rectangles a spacer is created which will give the upper and lower discs a thickness. This becomes obvious in the next paragraph.

In diagram D the upper and lower discs have moved inward, toward the centre disc, until they encounter the upright rectangles, or spacers. Thus, the thickness of the upper and lower discs is established via the spacers. As for the antennae that are attached to both the upper and lower discs, they fold inward toward the shaft and fit perfectly. Diagrams D and E illustrate a completed model of the Barn Head pictogram. Incidentally, this pictogram is the first of a series of pictograms containing antennae. The English coined the name "Insectogram" to describe them as a subgroup.

If you would take a moment to reflect back on your childhood, I believe that you will discover a striking parallel to what I have just described. Just a few years ago cereal boxes contained a sheet of cardboard from which a bus or car could be punched out and assembled. Instructions were, of course, included with the small prize. The identical process which we performed as children in constructing these little vehicles is being repeated by the crop circle creators. The only difference is that the assembly instructions are not given in any human language, but rather through the simple, very basic crop circles. You may draw your own conclusions from this observation.

The next step is to make a model of the deciphered crop circle and spin it to obtain the information intended to be communicated. Once a number of pictograms are deciphered and their resultant models spun, the aggregate knowledge acquired evolves into a mosaic. The entire process becomes somewhat like putting together a puzzle within a puzzle.

All of the information derived from the pictograms can then be applied to a saucer shaped craft which is derived directly from the crop circles. Yes. I am telling you that a scale model of a spaceship lies within the crop circles. Furthermore, by adding up the knowledge gleaned from the various pictogram models spinning, the actual operation of the ship is revealed. This includes ascent, descent, lateral motion, angular motion, stabilisation and power plant. All of these functions are addressed in detail within the book, aided by photos of scale models of the saucer with its "beams" and "fields" in place.

"The Gift" has been in existence since November, 1995 and constitutes cutting edge material. I insisted on a first class production in order to honour both our visitors and humanity. Thus, it comes hardbound with a dust jacket and contains fifty-seven diagrams and seventy-two photos.
