The Word Is Nine: Crop Circle Metaphors of 1997 (Part 1)’ contains many of my original investigative findings following onsite Crop Circle research in Wiltshire, Leicestershire, and Lincolnshire in England, in 1990. Referencing more than forty Crop Circle formations, the article presents an abundance of evidence linking the physics and metaphysics of Sound (‘The Word’), and ‘The Nine Principles and Forces of God’ (hence ‘The Word Is Nine’), to non-manmade Crop Circle creation, as symbolized in the timing, placing, geometry, mathematics, numerology, design symbolism, and meaning of many pictograms since the early 1980s, including some very impressive formations in 1997.

The article also includes ‘groundbreaking’ evidence I discovered in 1990 revealing how plant and soil exposure to ‘Sonic’, and ‘Ultrasonic’ energy, and frequencies, could explain many of the documented biophysical effects found at non-manmade Crop Circle sites, verified by Dr. W.C. Levengood.

Where The Plagiarism Really Began

‘The Word Is Nine: Crop Circle Metaphors of 1997 (Part 1)’ was published in ‘The Center for Crop Circle Studies’ journal ‘The Circular’ (Issue 32), in September 1998.

In Spring 2000, Freddy Silva published an article in the same journal (Issue 37) entitled ‘The Sound of Crop Circles’, in which he put, word for word in many places, and almost in many others, a lot of specific information, observations, ideas, words, and sentences, originally published by myself in Issue 32, without making any reference to ‘The Word Is Nine (Part 1)’ and crediting its author.

Since Spring 2000, F.S has widely published my copyrighted observations, un-referenced and un-credited, in numerous magazines and journals, including ‘Mysteries’, and ‘Fate’ magazine recently. You can also find information plagiarized from The Word Is Nine (Part 1) on his website and subsequently many other websites that have posted his article (The Sound of Crop Circles, or the same basic article by another title, i.e: ‘Is Sound Behind the Creation of Crop Circles’). A lot of my ‘lifted’ research (and some from Kris) is also published, without written permission, reference or credit, in his Crop Circle book (published in 2002)!
