The crop circle "believers," as they are often called, usually interpret the crop circle phenomenon as a sign that planet Earth is going through a major transformation. The specific interpretations of this concept vary. For example, the Hopi Indians of North America see the circles as an expression of Mother Earth suffering from the bad use that humankind makes of her. Some Christians interpret the flying balls of light and the crop circles as the signs in heaven and signs on earth, as predicted in the Bible to appear before the Apocalypse. Some see the signs as spiritual symbols that induce subconscious changes in the mind of people (in order to help them prepare for a dimensional shift that the Earth will be going through soon), whereas others assume that an extraterrestrial intelligence is trying to communicate with us, or is putting humans through a psychological exercise in order to prepare for their imminent arrival.
No matter which of these interpretations is correct, an interesting fact that nobody can deny is that even after at least 100 years of these phenomena (crop circles were reported in the early 20th century, and perhaps even in 1678), discussions about their origin are still ongoing. Another fact is that crop circles often seem to have very strong effects on the human mind, and many people claim that their lives have changed dramatically (mostly for the good) ever since they started to get interested in the phenomenon. One rational psychological explanation is that when people are confronted with a phenomenon that cannot be explained in simple terms and that seems to be a manifestation of a power that is beyond anything on Earth-and indeed, this is how many people feel when they are standing in a crop circle-it puts their lives in a different perspective, and makes everyday common worries all of a sudden seem small.
However, as mentioned earlier, some attribute this behavior as an effect of the symbols themselves, which act on the subconscious mind, whereas others simply believe that crop circles with their alleged mysterious characteristics make people think about other things than they usually think about, which opens up their minds and induces brand-new ideas that they never had before. In any case, the spiritual or psychological effects that crop circles have on people are usually very strong, and this is probably why many consider and treat crop circles as temporary temples that give them a place to meditate, relax, pray, or think. A personal visit to a crop formation is likely required before one can develop a well-considered opinion about all of this. If you ever decide to do so (today there are even organized tours in the summer season, particularly in the south of England but also elsewhere), you will probably also experience that crop circles can have good effects on human mentality. It is surprising how in a world with still so much aggression, hatred, envy, and other negative emotions, a crop circle always seems to be a place of peace, love, loyalty, mutual respect, and friendship. People meet one another in a crop circle and behave like old friends, regardless of age, appearance, political preferences, gender, or skin color. Perfect strangers spend the entire day (or longer) inside the formations, and eat, talk, sing, and dance together. Regardless of their meaning and their origin, this fact is certainly an important aspect of the crop circle phenomenon that deserves our attention and appreciation, and should serve as a lesson for all of us.
