Hyper-dimensional physics in English crop pictures: extra-terrestrial support for quantum gravity and the theories of Richard Hoagland?
Most of the fifty or so paranormal crop pictures from last summer in 2008 dealt with solar or lunar eclipses (see www.cropcircleconnector.com/2008/), a highly accurate value for pi as 3.141592654 (see barbury2008a), or an end to the Mayan Long Count calendar on December 23, 2012 (see aveburymanor2008a). Two important crop pictures from last summer, however, remain incompletely explained.
Two incompletely explained crop pictures from the summer of 2008
The first of those appeared at Secklendorf, Germany on June 23, 2008 (see Secklendorf2008atml). Around the outside it showed various planetary configurations for Earth, Venus or Mars, leading up an end of the Mayan Long Count calendar on December 21-23, 2012. Then on the inside it showed a strange three-dimensional prism shape to represent "planet Venus":
The second of those appeared at Oliver's Castle, England on August 16, 2008 (see oliverscastle2008a). Around the outside it showed various full cycles or half cycles of Venus, leading up to an end of the Mayan Sun-Venus calendar on March 28, 2013. Then on the inside it showed the same strange, three-dimensional prism shape, again to represent "planet Venus".
Such a three-dimensional prism might in principle be meant to represent "bright Venus", shining brilliantly in the morning sky in early August of 2008, when it rose from behind the Sun. Yet further study suggests a more precise interpretation, in terms of the symbols for hyper-dimensional physics used by Richard Hoagland and colleagues:
Symbols for hyper-dimensional physics
According to Hoagland's novel theory of physics, every planet in our solar system (and the Sun) may contain a hyper-dimensional flow of energy within itself, that takes the shape of a double tetrahedron when viewed from around the equator, or the shape of a hexagon when viewed from above the north pole. How closely do Hoagland's models match the two prism shapes shown at Secklendorf or Oliver's Castle in the summer of 2008? Almost perfectly, as evidenced by the detailed comparisons provided below:
The double tetrahedron is sometimes called a star tetrahedron or stella octangula (see Star Tetrahedron). Furthermore, the details of its geometry when inscribed within a sphere seem particularly interesting:
"If a tetrahedron is placed inside of a sphere, with one vertex located on the north or south pole, then the resulting latitude of its other three vertices will equal arcsin (1 / 3) or 19.47 degrees. Such tetrahedral geometry, when studied on a solar or planetary scale, seems to reveal an internal flow of energy at the centers of large astronomical objects, out of higher dimensions into our three-dimensional space" (see geometry or esp_marte_4 or planets).
An outward flow of energy at latitude 19.5 degrees
Now as an important corollary to Hoagland's model, every planet in our solar system (or the Sun) should show three foci of outward energy flow at latitudes of 19.5 degrees above or below the equator, or else at the north and south poles, where those two imaginary tetrahedra intercept a spherical surface.
That notable corollary seems to have been shown twice in crops last summer: first in partial form at Reinshof in Germany on June 23, 2008 (see Reinsdorf2008a, and then in complete form at All Cannings in England on June 30, 2008 (see allcannings2008a):
Reinshof of June 23 seems to be telling us that "energy is flowing outward from inside of planets or the Sun". Then All Cannings of June 30 seems to be telling us that such an outward flow of energy may lie at three particular foci on any planetary surface, separated in longitude by 120 degrees. The overall diameter of three expanded circles as shown at All Cannings was found on further analysis to match latitudes of plus or minus 20 degrees, thereby providing a reasonable match to arcsin (1 / 3) = 19.47 degrees from Hoagland's model.
No other plausible interpretations of those four new crop pictures: Secklendorf of June 23, Reinshof of June 23, All Cannings of June 30, or Oliver's Castle of August 16, come to mind at present. Are we perhaps being shown specialized topics in planetary physics, from an extra-terrestrial science textbook?
What do other Earth scientists think?
Apart from any considerations of crop pictures, what do other scientists on Earth today think of Hoagland's theories? The vast majority seem to be either not knowledgeable, or else overwhelmingly sceptical! Indeed, before studying those four new crop pictures, I had never heard of Hoagland's proposals either.
"Richard Hoagland and Thomas Bearden have proposed a new form of physics that they call hyper-dimensional. They believe that their new model represents the original form of Maxwell's equations for electromagnetism. They also argue that large amounts of energy, originating from unseen dimensions, may be emitted at latitudes 19.5° south or north of the equator, on the Sun or various planets in our solar system" (see Richard C Hoagland or Interplanetary Day After or halexandria).
"Hyper-dimensional physics is a hypothesis that energy may be stored in higher space time dimensions than the three which we seemingly inhabit. Richard Hoagland believes that such energy may be focussed on points located at the intersection between a sphere and a tetrahedron: namely at three points on any planet of latitude 19.5°, plus one point of latitude 90° (north pole). His hypothesis has not been published in any peer-reviewed journals, and remains unknown today to most mainstream physicists" (see Hyperdimensional Physics).
A central vortex at Oliver's Castle in 2008
Yet does anybody really care what modern academics think? Or whether some new theory may or may not be deemed acceptable for their stuffy, dust-bound, library journals? The last word surely belongs to those mysterious crop artists, who seem to be trying to teach us advanced extra-terrestrial physics in English fields, although few people on Earth are currently listening. Here for example is part of a field report on Oliver's Castle by Janet Ossebaard, one of the more experienced investigators:
"The centre of Oliver's Castle showed a stunning swirl where its three central tracks joined together. What struck me was the way the crop had been swirled around the centre. This was not necessary, since that crop could more simply have been pushed straight ahead, then twisted into a central bundle. Yet the outer right side of those tracks flowed left as they reached the central point, thereby creating a river-like flow of three streams, meeting and swirling into each other as for a clockwise vortex." (see
What could such a stunning, unexpected detail of the fallen crop be meant to represent, other than one of Hoagland's energy vortexes? Or an outward flow of energy into our three-dimensional space from higher dimensions? So much for crop pictures and pure theorizing. Let us examine next how Hoagland's model might account for certain unexplained aspects of our solar system, on its largest bodies Jupiter, Saturn or the Sun.
A Great Red Spot on Jupiter plus two new ones
Planet Jupiter has shown a Great Red Spot in its southern hemisphere for hundreds of years, that remains almost entirely unexplained. Within the past few years, its single red spot has even been joined by two new ones:
The mean latitude of 22 degrees South for that Red Spot seems to provide a reasonable fit to Hoagland's theoretical latitude of 19.5 degrees for outward energy flow, especially if the oblateness of Jupiter (due to fast rotation) might change that latitude of intersection slightly. Its north or south equatorial belts lie likewise at latitudes of +18 or -18 degrees (see /Great_red_spot#Great_Red_Spot or 24778267).
A mysterious hexagon and aurora at the north pole of Saturn
Planet Saturn seems anomalous enough already with its rings. Yet in recent years it has been shown to possess two more amazing and almost incomprehensible features: (i) a stable "hexagon" of atmospheric features at its north pole, and (ii) a newly glowing "aurora" of outward energy flow surrounding that hexagon (see cassini or Mysterious-glowing-aurora-Saturn-confounds-scientistsl). The strange hexagonal shape at Saturn's north pole seems to match Hoagland's double tetrahedral model as seen from above:
Furthermore, the new aurora seen at Saturn's north pole matches one of the energy vertices from his predicted tetrahedron:
For a video interview with Richard Hoagland concerning these features, see "Saturn's Hexagon Explained" on saturn-hexagon-explained.
Some people have offered a more conventional explanation for such strange observations: not in terms of hyper-dimensional physics, but in terms of standard fluid dynamics. Thus water or ethylene glycol, when placed into a fast spinning bucket, may sometimes produce triangular, square, pentagonal or hexagonal shapes, depending the height of the fluid and its speed of rotation: see Physical Review Letters 96, 174502, 2006, "Polygons on a fluid rotating surface" by T.R. Jansson et al.
The major problem with any conventional explanation, when applied to the north pole of Saturn, would be the instable and transient nature of such fluid dynamic structures, in contrast to the apparent long-term stability of the Saturn hexagon as observed.
A tetrahedron of energy flow within our Sun?
So much for Jupiter and Saturn. How about our Sun? Seventeen years ago at Barbary Castle on July 17, 1991, one of the most remarkable early crop pictures appeared. It showed a "double ring" symbol for our Sun, superimposed onto a single triangle (or tetrahedron) with three small circles attached (see barbry91):
Barbary Castle appeared just six days after a total solar eclipse on July 11, 1991, consistent with its solar symbolism (see astropix.com). Furthermore, a similar double ring symbol for "Sun" appeared at Avebury Manor on July 22, 2008, to tell us about solar events in late 2012 (see aveburymanor2008b).
Could there be an outward flow of energy within our Sun, corresponding to the single tetrahedron shown at Barbary Castle in 1991, or to Hoagland's double tetrahedron? In fact, every new 11-year solar cycle begins with a burst of new sunspots or magnetic field variations at solar latitudes close to +20 or -20 degrees:
Those initial energy flows seem to match predicted latitudes of +19.5 or -19.5 degrees from the double tetrahedral model. In the later years of any cycle, they move closer to the equator (see Educational or science.nasa.gov).
Returning now briefly to the crop picture (see above), what might those other three small circles from Barbary Castle 1991 be meant to signify? Its "hexagonal swirl" could be just a double tetrahedron as seen from above. The symbolic meaning of its "ratchet spiral" seems less clear, but could mean perhaps that some internal energy is quantized as one approaches the vortex centre. For other examples of tetrahedral geometry in crops, see universe2. For another example of that ratchet spiral at Barbary Castle in 2008, see barbury.
Hyper-dimensional physics and quantum gravity
It seems easy to understand why most modern academics have taken no notice of Richard Hoagland's model (except to discredit it). His model was based originally on very questionable kinds of evidence, concerning putative archaeological features from a long-forgotten human civilization, once supposedly based on Mars (see youtube.com or au.youtube.com or au.youtube.com).
Regardless of where Hoagland derived his ideas, could they still have some merit perhaps, in relation to modern theories of quantum gravity? In some of those theories, the basic building block of space-time is assumed to be a four-dimensional tetrahedron or "pentachoron". Such a geometric shape will project into our normal three-dimensional space as a series of five single tetrahedra, or perhaps even as Hoagland's double tetrahedron (see Polytopes or http://teamikaria.com/wiki/Pentachoron).
We saw the three-dimensional projection of a tesseract or four-dimensional cube in crops at North Down on August 19, 2007 (see northdown2007). Could those crop artists be showing us in 2008 the three-dimensional projection of a four-dimensional tetrahedron? Tetrahedral symmetry appears for quantum electricity in many kinds of atom, for example the carbon orbitals in methane CH4. Tetrahedral deformations are well known in some atomic nuclei (see tetrahedron).
With regard to quantum gravity, one leading theory states: "Quantum gravity divides space-time into tiny triangular sections known as simplexes. The 3-simplex is usually called a tetrahedron. The 4-simplex as a basic building block is usually called a pentachoron. Each individual simplex remains geometrically flat, yet many simplexes may be joined together in a variety of ways, so as to create a variety of curved space times (see /Causal-dynamical-triangulation or Causal_dynamical_triangulation).
In summary, if the underlying structure of space-time on a large planetary scale (as well as a small quantum scale) is really that of a pentachoron or 4-simplex, then the projection of that pentachoron into our three-dimensional space might well resemble Hoagland's double tetrahedron, and thereby explain the anomalous planetary or solar data as observed.
What do we see at latitude 19.5 degrees on Earth?
Many people have speculated about various geological features found close to latitudes of +19.5 or -19.5 on Earth (see planets). But more interesting perhaps are certain archeological features that lie close to latitude 19.5 degrees North on Earth, namely the great pyramid complexes of Teotihuacan and Edzna in ancient Mexico (see www.world-mysteries.com or www.dartmouth.edu):
Why should those archaeological features be of relevance here? Simply because Mayan calendars, Mayan binary codes, or symbols for the legendary Quetzalcoatl constitute an important part of modern crop pictures (see http://cropcirclemeanings.blogspot.com). Could the same race of people who once built Teotihuacan at a chosen latitude of 19.5 degrees, now be sending us messages in crops, about a latitude of 19.5 degrees from hyper-dimensional physics?
A change of energy flow as we approach the year 2012?
What will happen to Earth and our solar system in the year 2012, when the Mayan Long Count calendar ends on December 21 or 23? Nobody today really knows. Could it be related somehow to the four crop pictures that they just showed in 2008 at Secklendorf, Reinshof, All Cannings or Oliver's Castle, concerning hyper-dimensional physics?
As of 2008, we seem to be seeing slightly altered flows of energy all through our solar system: (a) fewer sunspots or less solar wind than normal (see solarwind or www.earthfiles.com), (b) two new red spots on Jupiter (see apod.nasa.gov), (c) a glowing hexagonal aurora on Saturn (see cosmiclog.msnbc.msn.com), or (d) increased levels of green nightglow on Venus (see query.nytimes.com). We may wish to keep a close eye on such phenomena are we approach the year 2012:
"Strange things will happen to the Sun, Moon and stars".(Luke 21, 25).
Indeed, might our current understanding of solar or planetary physics be as incomplete as that of early 20th-century scientists, who did not yet understand how stars can burn for billions of years using radioactive fusion? And might those mysterious crop artists---benevolent extra-terrestrials of some kind---be intent on helping us to understand? For sure, they are not far away! See a recent series of UFO reports on www.earthfiles.com or www.earthfiles.com.
