Gerald Hawkins


There is something about the Hawkins clan that I like. My most adept and austere teacher was a Hawkins related to Black Jack the Privateer and I wonder if this man who died recently while happily flying his model airplanes is one of them. I think it is very possible that genetic information transfer is real. Mathematics and astronomy was his forte but he also had a gift for Public Relations when he ran the contest to pay a large sum to anyone who could do the math in Crop Circles.

"Perhaps the most obvious scientific investigation that can be performed, when one is confronted with the intriguing shapes that crop circles can take, is a geometric analysis of the symbols. This was the approach followed by Dr. Gerald S. Hawkins, former chairman of the astronomy department at Boston University. Hawkins was probably the first person who unambiguously demonstrated that crop circles are much more than just some arbitrarily sized and randomly positioned patterns in the fields. After reading the bestseller Circular Evidence, in which an extensive overview was given of all British crop circles for the period 1978-1988, Hawkins analyzed all formations presented in this book. (2) In those early years the pictograms still had simple shapes: single circles, multiple circles in a pattern, and circles with concentric rings around them. All diagrams were put through a straightforward mathematical analysis, during which the proportions of the circle diameters and the areas inside the rings were determined. A total of twenty-five pictograms were taken into account.

Hawkins discovered that the resulting ratios revealed a strong correspondence to the white keys on a piano keyboard? In simple terms it boils down to the fact that the white keys on a piano keyboard can be logically related to the ordinal numbers 0, 2, 4 5, 7, 9 11, and 12. {Pythagoras developed the modern octave in music and all the crop circles have something to do with the 'Singing of the Spheres' he developed as part of what is in the Great Pyramid he learned it from. Harmonics and the inter-relating lattices of earth and cosmic energy are involved and not aliens as I see it.} When Hawkins determined the geometrical ratios from the individual pictograms, he discovered that all of these corresponded to integer numbers."
