In 2015 Sky High Creations organised the first “Night of Crop Circling” in Alton Barnes, right in the middle of crop circle country in Wiltshire UK. Since then we did one every year. In the summer of 2021 we will have the 7th “Night of Crop Circling”. Like the previous years, a series of 6 short lectures on various crop circle related topics. Once more via zoom, but next year live again for sure!
Confirmed speakers for 2021 are:
Zef finished his MSc study at the Technical University Eindhoven, The Netherlands, in 1971, in Digital Technology (cum laude). During his study, in 1969, he won a prize in the international contest of the Dutch Giro Service (Postcheque- en Girodienst) to find a method for automatic reading of handwritten giro-forms. At this event, he was invited by the director-general of the PTT, Dr. Hendrik Reinoud, to come and work with the PTT. This marked his introduction into the Dr. Neher Laboratory, the technical laboratory of the Dutch PTT. In the field of Postal Technology, he worked on automatic letter sorting machines, automatic address reading machines, training equipment, and more general, on pattern recognition and image processing, and postal systems engineering. For long, he has been interested in patterns of all kinds. Later on, in 1994, he graduated at the Technical University Delft on a thesis about Flexible Mail Processing, an Application of Integral Postal Engineering. He holds several patents on pattern recognition. After more than 30 years, he retired as a senior scientist. His hobbies now include: nature photography, building (small) mechanical clocks, and, of course, crop circle reconstructions.
Presentation: Crop Circle Reconstructions
Since 1998, Zef has made over 370 crop circle reconstructions, accurate representations of crop circle patterns with interesting, geometrical characteristics. All these reconstructions can be found on his website. In his presentation, he will explain why he thinks reconstructions are important. For example, to find the intelligent design (“blueprint”) behind these formations. But, what are crop circle reconstructions? Crop circle reconstructions are geometric constructions of geometric elements (like lines, circles, squares, triangles, etc.) that depend on each other, to form tightly connected constructs. He can guarantee, that the outcome of his reconstructions is an accurate and reliable representation of the pattern in the field, by applying the scientific method of model building. Within this method, the result of the reconstruction is directly compared with (various) aerial images of the crop circle formation. In his presentation, he will go deeper into this way of making a reconstruction, and will give some examples. And only in this way he is able to show, that many crop circle formations include “tricks” within their design. Very often, the most obvious solution happens to be not the right one!

Marién Grace, Director of the Bay Area Crop Circle Study Group in the San Francisco Bay Area, uses her commitment to our most beautiful unfolding in this evolutionary process of life to unveil potential meaning from the manifestations in our fields. Her deep exploration into Embodied Sacred Geometry, psyche investigation, unified field theories, intuitive fractal maths, serious gardening and playful wonder inform her delighted exploration into the intersection of our incarnated realms with the support of the beyond.
Presentation: Cultivating a New Relationship with the Cosmos, Crop Circles in Service to Our Evolutionary Aim
At this moment of intense poignancy in our evolutionary history, humans are clearly being asked to cultivate a different relationship to reality, one that encourages respect and nourishment rather than one which is disrespectful and toxic to life. Does the crop circle phenomenon encourage this new relationship in a healthy and revealing way? How might the crop circle record reveal to us proper orientation in relationship to this grand Other?
Since 1991 when Rieks had his first ‘encounter’ with crop circles* they never left his mind. Every year he was looking forward to what that year’s season might bring and a few times he was very happy to spend his holidays amidst the circles. Rieks has experienced strange things while he was there and that made the feeling that there is something strange going on only stronger. Sometimes he published his findings on The Cropcircle Connector but most of the findings were kept in hibernation on his harddisk. Until he started his website crop circle faction (facts and imagination). That way he can organise his thoughts and somebody may be as amazed as he is himself.
Presentation: Crop Formations 2019, A Tour de France Extraordinaire
The 2019 crop circle season had very interesting features. Especially the circles which appeared in France. This year 16 crop formations were made there. The spatial relationship to each other tough is the more interesting part. Rieks found out where the formations are lying and if their distances to each other have special characteristics like for instance a Phi-relationship. The day of appearance and the Sunrise/Sunset and Moonrise/Moonset on that day is considered as well and might perhaps answer the question “why there”? The French crop formations brought him a lot of surprises and he hopes they will surprise you too. More info can be found at: https://cropcirclefaction.wixsite.com/cropcirclefaction
