The progression or development of the whole of nature, from the subatomic to the supergalactic, follows this ratio. The twelfth century Italian mathematician, Leonardo P. Fibonacci, observed a predictable sequence of all natural development as shown by a progression of numbers:
The spiral is a common element of Sacred Geometry as well as to all natural development. Spirals in nature tend to follow the Phi Ratio or Fibonacci Sequence in their rates of expansion.
Most often, they are found in northern European countries, especially each summer in southwest England in fields of grain and other crops. Since the early 1990’s, they’ve appeared in greatest number, often dozens per season. There has been considerable speculation and controversy concerning their origin, purpose and validity. There has also been the belief that the entire phenomenon has been a hoax, however, it appears that the hoax theory itself is a hoax.*
Among the interesting features of crop circles is that the crops are laid over in such a way that the stalks are not damaged and continue to grow. This seems impossible to replicate with mechanical means or even by hand. Also, the stalks and surrounding soil are electromagnetically altered, as measured with instrumentation. People who walk into these formations often report anomalies such as distorted sense of balance, depth perception and more.
Of the myriad explanations of the crop circle phenomenon, one that seems most relevant to me is that of one of my teachers, Bashar, which he offered in a taped, group sharing in the early 1990’s. In response to a participant’s query, he stated that crop circles are symbolic communication, preparing us for further contact with other beings and other civilizations. Although there has been speculation that these other beings are of extraterrestrial origin, Bashar suggested that many of them are Earth inhabitants, but are extradimensional beings within other dimensions or higher octaves of our dimension. He also suggests that crop circles and crop formations (not necessarily just the circles) are produced through the collective consciousness of these beings and many humans engaged, in certain states of consciousness, in awakening ourselves on a cellular level to higher dimensions of awareness through this symbolic communication.
Prof. Benoit Mandelbrot, a mathematician at Oxford University, discovered a fractal formula in the 1960’s, the Mandelbrot Set, which is regarded as one of the classic fractal formulae. Earlier in the 20th century, French mathematician Gaston Julia, discovered a fractal formula referred to as the Julia Set, characterized by spiral patterns which follow the phi ratio and mimic the energy flow in various natural phenomena, including the nautilus, lightning, spiral-armed galaxies, etc. Since their discoveries, numerous fractal equations have been created. These designs often carry elements of Sacred Geometry and communicate to us on many levels, as well as dazzle us with their beauty.

Dr. Mandelbrot delivered a lecture at Oxford Univ. in 1991 concerning his discoveries associated with fractal geometry and the Mandelbrot Set. In a slide presentation, he showed several depictions of the Set, including the signature Mandelbrot image. The following morning in a corn field a few miles from the university, a crop circle appeared which perfectly depicted the Mandelbrot image. Local residents were variously concerned, alarmed and intrigued by this development. According to Dr. Chet Snow and other sources, the British Army was called in by the government that morning to burn the field and the design, and a diversionary explanation for the media regarding the occurrence was asserted. This was the birth of the hoax theory which suggested that two Englishmen, known simply as Dave and Doug, had been creating crop circles throughout the English countryside for two decades, using little more that sticks and wooden boards.
Although some crop designs may have been created in a like manner by people, there is little comparison in size, precision and measurable physical effects to the crops and the soil of these, and the majority of crop circles discovered to date. Drunvalo Melchizedek makes a distinction between ‘dead’ crop circles (those made physically by humans) and ‘live’ crop circles.
Late in the night of August 17, 1987, while camping at the holy mountain of Boboquivari, a very significant place of power in southern Arizona for many Native Americans, Phillip was shown a most amazing and indescribably beautiful light show of mandalas during an out-of-body experience in which he experienced himself just outside of Earth’s atmosphere. He produced a number of mandalas following this experience in which he attempted to replicate some of those visions.
The following examples show three types of mandalas that he has drawn:
