This is an digital graphic rendering of a recent crop circle at Silbury Hill in Great Britain which I found particularly striking, and very mysterious. Crop circles in general have become amazing artistic inspirations over the years. A rendering, in this case, is an artistic expression of the contents of a photograph. The design of the formation is both intricate and beautiful and the challenge of recreating this crop circle was too much to resist. Renderings from photographs are possible in a vector format only where contrast and lighting are such that all details of the image are clearly defined. Other forms of rendering a photo exist through using various plug-in filters in software packages such a PhotoShop ... however resolution and therefore enlargement capability are restricted. The advantage of a vector rendering, such as the example on this page, is that the finished image can be scaled almost limitlessly without loss of clarity. ALIEN ARTISTS?

This Amazing Crop Circle features an Ancient Egypt mosaic in the centre and symbols from the Mayan Calendar around the rim. The Calendar predicted the end of the world in 2012, will be feature in the Crop Circle Connector DVD CIRCLECHASERS (2004). The Calendar Clock The Silbury crop-picture takes 'crop messages' to a new level! Anyone can see that it encodes some kind of important message, relevant to ancient Mayan-Aztec prophecy. So I spent several days learning Mayan-Aztec calendar systems, and now believe that the interpretation is unique and straightforward. It seems to be just a large "calendar clock", with time shown in four different units (analogous to days, hours, minutes or seconds) along the outside, plus a 'moving clock mechanism' in the center. Both 'inner hands' tell us that we lie precisely (52 / 6) = 8.67 years from the end of the 'Fourth Sun' in 2012.9, where 2004.6 (August) + 8.67 = 2012.9 (almost). The same picture would have had to be drawn in February 2004.2 to be perfectly accurate (no crops were growing then). Aztecs and Mayans used three different calendar systems with 260, 360 or 365 days per year, but the crop-artist for simplicity drew everything in 360-day 'years'. Outer dial of the clock 4 shaded areas represent 5200 years each, and symbolize four previous or current "Suns", just as for the Calendar Stone in Mexico. 10 outer boxes per Sun (over any 90 degree quadrant, with boxes 1 and 2 always shaded) represent 520 years each. 10 inner boxes per Sun (again over any 90 degree quadrant) represent 52 years each (the most fundamental Mayan unit of time covered 52 years, as the convergence of 365 and 260-day calendars). Finally, because we lie so close to 2012.9, the crop-artist added a feature not present in Mayan — Aztec culture: he/she divided the two inner-boxes closest to any shaded region into finer divisions of (52 / 6) = 8.67 years, by means of (2 x 3) =6 fine-lines. Now both "hands of the clock" point precisely to the last fine line before any shaded region, meaning that we lie today "8.67 years from the end of the Fourth Sun". Inner Hands of the Clock Two 'bundles' of 20 fine lines tell us that we are working in Mayan-Aztec mathematics. For most historical dates or 'long count', the Mayans or Aztecs used powers of 20: for example 20 days per month, 20 years, 20 x 20 years, 20 x 20 x 20 years. Thus within any 'Sun' of 5200 years (as shown four times on the outer dial), we find 13 x 20 x 20 = 5200 years calculated in another way, and sometimes represented as 13.0.0. Looking again at the inner hands, we see however only (2 x 6) = 12 thick curves above and below: signifying 12.0.0, and indicating that 13.0.0 is near. Summary Two different Mayan-Aztec calendar schemes are encoded in the diagram, leaving no possibility for error. The outer dial counts time as 52 x 10 x 10 =5200, and uses a set of six fine lines near any shaded area for greater accuracy, namely 52 / 6 = 8.67. The inner hands count time as 12 x 20 x 20 or 12.0.0, since 13 x 20 x 20 = 13.0.0 = 5200 has not yet been reached. Because the information provided in both parts is redundant, we can be sure that the interpretation is correct. In other words, "the end of the Fourth Sun is near and on schedule". An incredibly clever scheme of pictorial mathematics. by C. Lewis C. Lewis Article Reprinted from www.cropcircleconnector.com Additional information at www.earthfiles.com
