Andrews is an electrical engineer and former senior officer with local
government in West Hampshire, England. He is founder of Circles Phenomenon
Research, an international organization dedicated to the investigation
of the crop formations.
His 1989 international best-selling book Circular Evidence, co-authored
with Pat Delgado, brought widespread attention to the phenomenon, and
has been translated into Japanese, German, Spanish, and Italian. A more
recent book, The Latest Evidence, was published in 1990 (see Share
International July/August 1991). Monte Leach interviewed
Share International: What is the latest update on the crop circle phenomenon?
Colin Andrews: We have been showing evidence, arrived at by a German distillation
process at HSC laboratory, at Stroud in Gloucestershire, that there had
been a change in the crystalline structure of the [crop circle] plants.
This is an unconventional process thats worried a lot of scientists,
who were concerned that we were travelling up the wrong road in our research.
I disagreed, and continue to disagree. But because it was an
unconventional approach, we had to find a laboratory prepared and equipped
to undertake more conventional analytical processes.
Dr W.C. Levengood, a biophysicist and plant expert in Michigan, took up
the challenge. He already has secured two major discoveries. One is that
the cells at the nodal point, the point at which the plants bend, about
a half to one inch above ground level, have fractured and scarred.
That cannot occur by the trampling of feet, or whirlwinds, or the other
processes that we hear about. Dr Levengood is not able to state precisely
what causes that to happen, but is suggesting that it is due to a rapid
increase in temperature within the plant. This fracturing and scarring
of the cell structure supports the HSC Laboratory results.
ML: What was the other important finding?
CA: Dr Levengood planted the seeds from the cereal crops involved in this
phenomenon (those that were involved last year) and germinated them in
environmentally-sound conditions. He found that the date at which the
plants germinated was consistent with the controls, the plants outside
of the crop circle area.
What he then found, and this is consistent with what we have been looking
at over the years, is that the plant growth is positive. That is to say,
the plants, once theyve germinated, grew at a very much more accelerated
rate above ground level [than the control samples].
The root structure was also much more extensive and healthy below ground
level, as compared with the control samples indeed many-fold healthier
and more productive. That, too, is a very important discovery. The plants
were taken from three sites in the world Australia, America, and
Were looking at a consistency here. Again, comparing that with wind
damage, hoaxing, and trampling by human feet, it isnt an effect
than can be replicated.
ML: Will these results be published in any way?
CA: Yes, they will be. In fact, in a limited way, they have already been
ML: Are there any other developments with the scientific research?
CA: Yes, the work of Gerald Hawkins, the respected scientist in Washington,
DC, who has written books on the geometry of Stonehenge.
SI: What has he found with the crop circles?
CA: Its looking very exciting indeed. Prior to the launch of Circular
Evidence, we had an uncontaminated period, a period during
which I would pretty well put my life on it we were not
receiving any hoaxes at all.
Since the book was launched, the public became aware that something unusual
was going on, and of course now we have a high number of claims of hoaxes
and indeed physical hoaxes as well. But in the crop formations of that
pre-contaminated period prior to 1989, what Gerald Hawkins has proven
is that, well beyond a
chance of over 90 per cent, we are looking at diatonic ratios within the
And perhaps were looking at ancient geometry which could relate
to sound itself, because these are the same ratios which underlie the
diatonic scale in music. Its an extremely significant development.
Whats for sure is that I doubt if there is any hoaxer in the world
who would begin to even know what it is were talking about, let
alone calculate his handiwork to compare ancient diatonic ratios of that
The Gulf Breeze incident
SI: Anything that we can look forward to in the coming months?
CA: Early this summer, theres going to be a surveillance operation.
It will be similar to what happened when I planned Operation Blackbird
with the British Army, but it will involve no media whatsoever. It will
be confidential. A site has been chosen.
Its in central-southern England, and it will be at a site where
the ground markings have appeared regularly, and also where aerial phenomena
are occurring regularly.
Were interested in those two particular elements because of a major
development which took place in Gulf Breeze, Florida, on 13 March this
SI: This is your work with Steven Greer?
CA: Weve been working with Dr Steven Greer, a physician here in
the US. Hes now heading his own SETI project [Search for Extraterrestrial
Intelligence], and has worked out over a period of 18 months a protocol
for interaction with an airborne object.
He took his team of 33 observers to Gulf Breeze, opposite the Pensacola
military establishment there. On 13 March, his team of 33 observers established
their position. Using powerful one million candle-watt search beams they
formed a triangle of light in the sky.
Within seconds five white lights with orange balls on the under side appeared,
moved across the sky and took up position at the triangles apex.
They maintained this position.
In the next stage Steven flashed the search beam at a predetermined rate
onto one of the objects. Meanwhile, everything was being filmed on video
camaras. There were, I believe, another 20 or so members of the public
observing this from six other locations around Gulf Breeze.
The team then traced a course with a beam from above the five objects
down onto the beach, suggesting to the objects that they move along this
line to ground level. Two objects broke away from the five, and moved
that beam. But they stopped, took up a hovering position directly over
the observers there.
They maintained their position for quite some while, and at that point,
through binoculars, all of them, Steven included, could see the structural
detail of those objects. At this point, the objects gave out two flashes
of white light, and all of them, the two and the remaining three, just
A CBS television film crew was there on the following Tuesday filming
something quite different. Some of Stevens team were still in the
area. I dont know how they made contact with one another, but apparently
they suggested to CBS that they should stay and that Stevens team
would have a second try at this. They
did, and the television crew filmed two UFOs, which responded similarly.
Quite an extraordinary case.
If it is as reported, we have something here of great importance. Steven
and his team will be coming over to Britain, and carrying on that particular
process over the fields where these markings have appeared. I have a very
positive feeling about this, as Steven does himself. We may well be entering
a critical phase.
Response to a sick molecule
SI: Could you talk a bit about what you believe the crop circles mean?
CA: We are entering a very crucial and important phase in our evolution.
The crop markings are only a part of a major shift in the consciousness
of mankind, and moving us forward, probably the biggest leap forward in
our evolution in history.
In terms of this planet, I believe that we are looking at a single, living
molecule. The Gaia theory makes perfect sense to me, that we are indeed
looking at a living planet, a living organism. Its what the indigenous
peoples have always tried to tell us.
They have survived only because they have understood how to interact with
nature. They found their place in nature. We are here in a material way,
and are on a course to folly. We have a limited time to put things right.
Its 10 seconds to midnight. Unless we learn to harmonize, to interact
with all living things, Im afraid we are going to see the closing
down of a living organism on which we rely.
This message is also coming from those who are working in pure science
right now. We have a big problem. The planet has a big problem. The evidence
I believe that the crop circles are graphic markings that have within
them, in their entirety, a meaning. That meaning, and the response to
that visual intake, is automatic, because its within our blueprint.
It is within us subconsciously to recognize them.
Many people feel this, but they are unable to establish where theyve
seen them before. It is, I believe, part of the change of consciousness.
There are high levels of energy which are being intelligently placed into
position in critical parts of the planet. These, if you like, are probably
the chakra points, to give it a term, important energy points of the living
They are not random, and they have never been random. They are at specific
points, and they recur at those locations. I believe that they are occurring
literally at the interface between this dimension of the world that we
know quite a lot about and those other dimensions of which we know so
We are beginning to see that we can interact in a limited way, directly
with other dimensions. We are seeing, I think, the reaction of the brain
end of the universe, the thinking end, which is automatically responding
to a very sick molecule. If you were to cut your finger, the brain end
of your universe, your head, would react subconsciously to that.
You certainly wouldnt be saying, Send me haemoglobin and white
corpuscles. But the brain end automatically responds. If we could
watch the processes going on within your framed universe, what we would
see in a microscope is white blood corpuscles moving to that point and
interacting. The behavioural tendency would be the equivalent of the UFO.
That would be the UFO response from the brain-end of the universe to this
planet. Thats the analogy.
The manifestation to come
SI: In the video Undeniable Evidence you say that this crop
circle phenomenon is leading to a manifestation of some type. What do
you think is going to happen?
CA: I have felt for quite some years that we are certainly going to experience
something of great magnitude. It is going to be very soon. We are going
to encounter something here which I dont think any man or woman
is going to doubt.
This coming few months is going to see one or two events which are going
to shake the world. It is going to focus our attention and the reality
of knowing we are not the only thinking components of this living planet.
We are going to be stunned into accepting that we have much more to consider.
SI: Do you have a bottom line? Do you know what its going to be,
but hesitate to make it known in public?
CA: I do, because I still feel it is most important at this juncture,
as it has been for the last 10 years, that this research, this effort
at disseminating what we already know about this phenomenon, must be kept
SI: You believe this event will take place soon, and will leave no doubt
that we are not alone here. Is that the main purpose of these events?
CA: It is indeed. We will be receiving assistance of new knowledge, new
abilities, because we will be working at a different level. We will see
manifestations of the Fatima** type. That is the picture that is in my
mind. It is a very clear picture. I see certainly a Fatima-type experience
I believe it will be in the vicinity of Silbury Hill, Stonehenge, Avebury
in southern England, because thats where the focus of attention
is. There has to be a reason why this is happening right there. Having
I believe that will be the door opener. The whole world is going to experience
something of tremendous importance.
Close to a Golden Age
SI: What you are saying correlates in some ways with Benjamin Cremes
CA: I would like to say on the record that I have great respect for Benjamin
Cremes work. Indeed, I hope to meet him. I have read a fair bit
of your magazine, in fact.
The thinking end, the brain end of the universe is the way I have been
putting it in recent times. We could easily fall out with society here
because there is potential for great difficulty when we are talking about
the thinking component of the universe. That could be Jesus. It could
be God. It could be extraterrestrial. It
could be high nature.
I dont feel that we have time to fall out over that. We have something
which has thought, something which is
intelligently interacting with us, and providing us with proof of its
SI: I believe that all of these phenomena are very much connected. I think
the appearance of the Teacher, the crop circles, the UFOs, are all working
together to raise the consciousness of humanity. Thats my opinion.
CA: Its one that I share totally. We are living in special times.
There is no doubt that at this time next year, the world is going to be
very different. We are living very close to a Golden Age. I really feel
that. But equally, one has to say a word of warning, that always there
are equal quantities of blackness right alongside.
Its as easy to get it wrong as it is to get it right. We have to
put out that white light, to put out there positive thinking, with sincerity
and good heart. At the end of the day, well be doing all we possibly
can for humanity.
It is also worth bearing in mind the Hopi Indian prophecy. We have reached
a stage at the very end of the evolutionary path where the Hopi are awaiting
the white man who left their land to return with the missing piece of
a tablet on which there will be the signs.
I would suggest to you that if we can focus our attention on the crop
circles and the interaction with the UFO, in the very near future we will
appreciate that the signs have arrived. As the Hopi prophecy shows, we
are about to hold and shake the hand of the Spirit, the very Spirit that
started us on this path.
*Linda Moulton Howe, an award-winning documentary filmmaker and a UFO
researcher, has helped to co-ordinate Dr Levengoods work. Howe had
these comments at a recent conference in San Francisco:
Dr Levengood has found under microscopic examination that in the
plants that were affected, the cell pits the tiny holes in cells
of plants where fluid moves back and forth, and keep the plants growing
and healthy have been expanded.
The only way that Dr Levengood could duplicate this cell pit separation
was to put plants inside of a microwave for up to 30 seconds. Hes
not saying that its microwave radiation that did it. Hes saying
rapid heating was the only way he could duplicate the cell pit separation
in the plants.
Further, a nuclear design engineer in Tennessee has done preliminary
work on some soil samples and has found that there were three different
types of isotope changes that were found in the soil underneath at least
two crop formations. That work is now considered to be tentative.
They need many more soil samples from many more formations to make any
kind of definitive scientific presentation. But at least the preliminary
findings are intriguing because they suggest that some kind of energy
is being applied in the formation of these crop circles that is not understood.
**Three children in Fatima, Portugal, reported a series of visions of
the Virgin Mary in 1917. The experiences culminated in October of that
year in a manifestation which included miraculous phenomena witnessed
