Circles, Sound, and Creation


Circles, Sound, and CreationConnecting with the Vast Cycles of the Universe
by Beata Van Berkom

"In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."
– John 1:1

Science is now re-discovering that sound is the basis of form. Sound creates form, which is the magical realm of sacred geometry and chaos fractal patterns. I began to ponder this idea in relationship to the creation of crop circle patterns. This idea is not new to us as the following descriptions of the work of Ernst Chladni and Hans Jenny explain:

"In 1787, musician and physicist Ernst Chladni published Discoveries Concerning the Theory of Music (Entdeckungen über die Theorie des Klanges). In this and other pioneering works, Chladni laid the foundations for that discipline within physics that came to be called "acoustics," the science of sound.

Among Chladni's successes was finding a way to make visible what sound waves generate. With the help of a violin bow which he drew perpendicularly across the edge of flat plates covered with sand, he produced those patterns and shapes which today go by the term Chladni figures. Chladni demonstrated once and for all that sound actually does affect physical matter and that it has the quality of creating geometric patterns.

In 1967, the late Hans Jenny, a Swiss doctor, artist, and researcher, published the bilingual book, Kymatik -Wellen und Schwingungen mit ihrer Struktur und Dynamik/ Cymatics - The Structure and Dynamics of Waves and Vibrations. In this book Jenny, like Chladni two hundred years earlier, showed what happens when one takes various materials like sand, spores, iron filings, water, and viscous substances, and places them on vibrating metal plates and membranes. What then appears are shapes and motion patterns which vary from the nearly perfectly ordered and stationary to those that are turbulently developing, organic, and constantly in motion.

Jenny made use of crystal oscillators and an invention of his own, by the name of the tonoscope, to set these plates and membranes vibrating. The tonoscope was constructed to make the human voice visible without any electronic apparatus as an intermediate link. This yielded the amazing possibility of being able to see the physical image of the vowel, tone, or song a human being produced directly. Not only could you hear a melody — you could see it, too!

Jenny called this new area of research cymatics, which comes from the Greek word kyma, meaning wave. Cymatics could be translated as: the study of how vibrations, in the broad sense, generate and influence patterns, shapes, and moving processes."*

Jenny found that a sound frequency shift creates a more or less complicated form depending on the frequency. Increase in frequency equals increase in pattern complexity. Disharmonic sound created disharmonious unappealing patterns and harmonious sounds created harmonious visually appealing patterns.

Jenny also found that Hebrew and Sanskrit letters would physically form when vibrated through the medium. This to me proves the existence of magic words! Creative phrases that transform the physical reality we see around us. There are legends of shaman being able to whisper words that created patterns in the sand.

Connecting Sound to Crop Circles

The enigma of crop circles has been ever increasing for the past 30 years, ever expanding to incorporate more impossible and intricate designs, inspiring hoaxers to create their own works as well; as rough and unglamorous as they are compared to genuine formations.

Sound and light are available in ranges far beyond our receptivity. More of the light spectrum exists than our simple simian eyes can perceive. Our ears hear only a limited range of frequency which is why we can't hear dog whistles. There must be things going on around us all the time, everyday, that we cannot see or hear. Perhaps this is a realm of the technology used to create these beautiful forms.

My personal theory on the circles is that they are here now, at this time in our evolution as a species, to help us expand our consciousness. That they are created to awaken the Earth as well as our human biology (Physical, Mental, Emotional, and Spiritual bodies) to increments in light and sound frequency which we may already be perceiving. This increase will help to restore balance to our planet and within our communities as we are inspired by new information and ideas to choose the way of peace and compassion.

The medium is the message with the crop circles. The fact that they are here and that they are unexplainable by our current understanding is a big part of their complex layered message. Crop circles are opening minds to the possibility of other technologies, other forms and codes of information. We must remember that science is magic we understand and magic is science we don't understand.

Due to the fact that plants are not killed during the creation of the patterns, I feel the technology used to create the formations must work directly with the ‘chi' or life force of the plants themselves. The plants are coded to lay down as instructed by the technology. BOL's or balls of light that have been photographed at formations may have something to do with this communication to the plants.

Dr. W. C. Levengood, a research physicist, has demonstrated that seeds from formations in an immature crop will not thrive, however seeds from a formation in a mature crop will germinate faster, require less light and water and grow synchronistically. Compare this to the vast amounts of information contained in the formations we have received. Will our collective consciousness be mature enough to glean the gifts of information contained deep in the heart of this enduring mystery?

Why now? Maybe it is time

"We are experiencing the end of grand cycles of time on the order of thousands, tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands of years and even more. The 2,160-year zodiacal ages are equal divisions of the 25,920-year precession (cycle) of the Equinoxes. In this context, we are moving from the Piscean Age into the Aquarian Age. Also, a whole precessional cycle is ending and a new one is about to begin — sort of a Galactic New Year.

Even larger cycles of time connect us with vast cycles of the universe, as recorded in the Hindu tradition. Three of these are also coming to an end. The building block of the Hindu — or Vedic — timekeeping system is a cosmic cycle called a Yuga. These cycles relate to the creation, preservation, and destruction of the universe. The length of each Yuga varies from 438,000 years (the Kali Yuga) to 1,752,000 years (the Satya Yuga). Most Hindu sources agree we are at the end of the Kali Yuga, which is also the last Yuga in the entire cycle of Yugas. The overall cycle, called the Mahayuga, is roughly 4,380,000 of our years, and that cycle is also coming to an end. We will soon begin a new Mahayuga.

There is one more. We are approaching the completion of a major cycle for the planet Earth herself. This 4.4 billion-year cycle is called a Kalpa, or Day of Brahma, the prime creative force of the Godhead. A Kalpa equals 1,000 Mahayugas, or divine ages, a major universal cycle. The Earth is now entering a Day of Brahma, when the cycle of human soul evolution makes a quantum leap out of the darkness and into the light."**

Crop circles seem to be asking us to open our boundaries of reality, take information from alternate sources, and expand our perception of existence itself. The actual fact that these pictograms appear is very hard to accept but once one does the work is over, your paradigm is shifted and there is no turning back to the dark. Multiple layers of lessons and information lie in our fields. I have extreme gratitude for researchers and documentors who work very hard and are so extremely dedicated to this event, one of the most important in human history.
