"What on Earth?" Inside the Crop Circle Mystery

By Greg SullivanCreated 12/23/2009 - 07:36Featureteaser: "In terms of the intentions of the extraterrestrials... to me it's very clear what it could be: to let us know that we're not the only intelligence." Director Suzanne Taylor discusses her new film What On Earth?! Inside the Crop Circle Mystery.

A new documentary, What On Earth? Inside the Crop Circle Mystery [1], focuses on the ever-evolving crop circle phenomenon. The film is using the Web as its initial platform for reaching out to audiences worldwide. It was shot in the Wiltshire area of southern England, where famous power centers like Avebury and Stonehenge provide an ancient backdrop for this enigma of our time. Filmmaker Suzanne Taylor spoke to us about the movie from her home in Los Angeles. (See image gallery here [2].)

How did you first become involved with the crop circles?

The tagline of this film is "Inside the Crop Circle Mystery," and I named it that because I am a crop circle enthusiast who made film about them, not a filmmaker who found a subject. The film gives an intimate sense of what it's like to be among the people who are involved in the crop circle world, rather than my being an observer peering into the scene there.

I've had several "croppies," as the people who study them and report about them are called, speak at salons at my Los Angeles home. Barbara Lamb, a croppie who lives in Los Angeles County, was the first person who presented the circles in my living room, almost twenty years ago, and Michael Glickman, who used to live in L.A., was at my house many times, sometimes presenting and other times in the audience. I've hosted others who were passing through L.A. -- George Wingfield, who was a major figure early on; Tim Carson, the farmer who gets the most and the best circles in his fields; Francine Blake, who runs the Wiltshire Crop Circle Study Group, and others. This film isn't about proving anything, but is about sharing the enthusiasm of people like this, who have dedicated much of their lives to studying, documenting, reporting on, and making art about the phenomenon.

Do you believe that nonhuman intelligences are making these formations, and if so what is their intention? Why don't they communicate with us more directly?

We have to speculate here, but I believe the intention of the circlemakers is to let us know that we're not the only intelligence in the cosmos. Knowing that would change everything. We would be one humanity in relation to 'the other.' Right now, with no 'other' to relate to, it's all us, and we oppositional creatures have nothing to call us to higher plane. All we need to do is recognize that there is other intelligence and the world will never be the same, in the most positive ways.

People for years have asked why visitors from elsewhere don't just land on the White House lawn. First of all, we'd probably shoot them. And, even if not, it would be very jarring to us, and that doesn't seem like a peaceful or conscious way for them to help us evolve, which I think is what the circlemakers want us to do. We evolve by understanding something new, not by being hit over the head with new data.
