The Litchfield Crop Circle Pictogram of 1995

By Ed Sherwood
Noted biophysicist W.C. Levengood stated in “Anatomical Anomalies
in Crop Formation Plants
,” that ‘Crop Circle energies affect the development
of seed embryos: it appears that when these energies hit plants prior to or during certain stages of maturation the seeds do not develop, and that when these energies cause formations in more mature plants they may significantly enhance  or increase seed growth.’
(Ref 1)

Illustrating ‘enhanced growth’, a handful of seeds collected by Kris from a pictogram
that appeared near Litchfield in 1995 (Fig. 1), and planted the following year, produced multiple stems and seed heads off one main stem! One stem generated four more (Fig. 2), while another created six individually attached stems with seed heads! (Fig. 3)
They reminded me of an ancient species of wheat I saw growing in the South of France in 1988, from Egypt, that grows to a height of about six feet tall, and produces seven wheat heads from one main stem. Just think, if we knew the specific frequencies to stimulate certain seed and plant species to duplicate this effect (literally illustrated in a wheat field as a non-manmade Crop Circle formation at Litchfield in 1995), higher yields in smaller fields could perhaps feed the world, and preserve the environment. (Ref 8)

In the mid-1960s Mary Measures & Pearl Weinberger, of Canada’s University of Ottowa, found that ultrasonic frequencies greatly affect the germination and growth of plant seeds and seedlings. Recorded in the book ‘The Secret Life of Plants’; ‘their experiments indicated, albeit inexplicably, that the enzyme activity and respiration rates in plants and their seeds increased when they were stimulated by ultrasonic frequencies. Stored wheat exposed to high frequency waves for insect control, for example, grew faster than unexposed wheat when planted. However, the very frequencies which stimulated some plant species inhibited others.’ (Ref 2)


What Did the Litchfield Pictogram Symbolize?

During the spring and summer of 1994 I followed with great interest, like Kris, any report of the Shoemaker/Levy 9 Comet and its approaching impact with Jupiter. (In August of 1991 I found compelling evidence that the Sun and Jupiter could be involved in the physics of non-manmade Crop Circle creation, through an astrophysical phenomenon known as the ‘Solar Oscillation’ or ‘Jupiter Effect’.) In 1994, as Kris reveals in detail in her article ‘The Scorpius Hour of 1994’, and I discovered in 1995,  this historic event was reflected and affirmed in the form of certain non-manmade Crop Circle formations, including the Litchfield pictogram. 

Symbolizing the impact effect of twenty one comet fragments, represented by twenty one semi-circular arcs; the shock waves or sound waves and resonant effect of the Shoemaker/Levy 9 Comet collision into Jupiter’s atmosphere the previous Summer, a pictogram formed in wheat at Litchfield in Hampshire on July 7th 1995, containing nine primary design elements: one large undulating ‘ring’, in this case an ‘open ring’, measuring 267 feet in diameter, representing the point of impact (atomization), surrounding seven thin concentric rings; and a small circle at the center. In a series of non-manmade formations in 1994 Jupiter was symbolized by a large wide ring, and the Comet, by descending sized circles (Fig. 5), now within Jupiter (Ref. 3).

After sampling the Litchfield pictogram W.C. Levengood reported evidence ‘of a massive “spill over” of the radiation damage effects into the standing normal appearing crop.’ (Ref. 4) Perhaps this too was a sign: an invisible biophysical sign that the Litchfield pictogram not only symbolized a massive planetary impact event, but was also the ‘effect’ of one!
