Well, whatever it represents, it sure isnt the prettiest crop formation that I have seen! But it has arrived with LOTS of blame and controversy.
The first knowledge of this ' Creature ' arrived via CCMTV ( crop circle makers Internet TV ). While Matthew Williams was hosting the show, someone known as THE GATEKEEPER stated ( through a chat window ) that this formation appeared at WINTON ( not Wilton but Winton - 2 different places ! ) So I announced this news as stated by The Gatekeeper on RACCF ( our facebook page ) as there was no other signs of it being reported on Circle Chasers or Crop Circle Connector. ( Some have failed to notice that we are also a crop circle reporting site - hence it was reported ! )
Now, because we reported it as soon as we heard the news a suspicion was quickly placed on me ( Andrew Pyrka ) but then the blame was transferred to someone else simply because of some images which they took.
Sue and Mike Davies were in Wiltshire visiting friends like they do every crop circle season. I keep in touch with Sue and Mike and I knew that they were in Wiltshire so I called them the next day and informed them that there was a new crop formation reported in WINTON ( at this stage in time it was still unclear to the creatures location ) so I asked them to grab some ground shot pictures for me and for the RACCF page. I have made such requests countless number of times when I could not get there myself - so this is nothing new and its not some conspiracy.
Due to location uncertainty up Sue and Mike travelled backwards and forwards trying to find a needle in a haystack, so we spoke again and I then suggested to try Wilton Windmill as there was a crop formation there back in 2010. When they eventually redirected and found Wilton Windmill they stated it was not possible for a crop formation to be in the field directly opposite the windmill because it was in immature wheat ( basically it was to early to expect a formation at this stage in time in young wheat). Mike then decided to stand on top of his truck and scanned the field. From his elevated view point Mike spotted some indentations in the field so they went in to investigate.
Sure enough there was a formation there which at first ground level view could be described as a snake with some kind of lettering on its back. Sue and Mike took some ground shots and immediately sent them to my mail box via their Iphone - hence the image quality was poor. I had to enhance these images a touch just so we had some visible contrast.
Due to my enhancement of these images the theories started to pour in: heres one example.....
This is a very good example how stories are changed and twisted as the news circulates around the internet.
If this was nightvision it would have to be at least Military Grade but one thing to consider is does night vision record colour ? I dont think so.
So do be careful, if you are the first person in a new crop formation and you take pictures and post them to connector or circle chasers you may become a suspect that you made a crop formation in question. ( This comment we will continue to highlight further down on this page )
Larry was fully aware that we had intention to make a crop circle as part of our list of experiments in 2011. We had to cancel the making of a crop circle as the farmer in question requested £1000, we simply could not justify such a cost just to flatten some wheat.
Nevertheless Larry suggested we use his code and incorporate it into a crop circle design if we found the funds to make one so we could establish a universal code between humans and aliens.
Larry suggested this idea through RACCF and quite openly where the public were able to see such a suggestion, so this was not done through email and behind closed doors. EVERYONE COULD SEE THE CODE AND SUGGESTION !
But of course other people out there ( especially the opposition made a big deal out it and started to seek ways to blame us for the making of the monstrosity of a creation at Wilton.
As you can see Larry did indeed make his intentions and suggestions very public.
Larry and others quickly deciphered the code as ' BEWARE 666 SAM3'. Once the code was deciphered the minds of many out there started churning to what it could mean etc. Basically the theories started to pour in.
The ' BEWARE 666 ' seems straight forward and to the point - or is it ? . SAM3 on the other hand caused more interest than the BEWARE 666, but why ?
What I call the opposition are the people who are protecting the fact that crop circles are man made. The opposition in this instance became highly curious and applied many questions such as who are the people who took the first ground shots, who was the Gatekeeper, who reported it and when and how etc etc.
I became very suspicious to their intense curiosity simply because they did not question other formations of 2011 in the manner like they have with this one ( they didn't, simply because they knew the person(s) who made them - FACT ! ) So it would indicate that the snake formation was made by someone else unknown to them.
Generally when a crop circle is made a phone call/text/email etc. Is sent informing chosen researchers that a crop circle formation has been created at a specific location, so a researcher can fly as soon as it is possible, just in case the farmer decides to cut it out. The objective of the exercise is to capture the image before the farmer has been made aware that there is a crop circle in his field. ( This is all true folks ! )
It would appear that in this instance no researcher received any info regarding the new crop formation at Wilton. This applies a caution with the researchers in questions as they themselves fear that it could indeed be a set-up and their secret will be revealed , so if someone would stand up and say ' hey we did it and we have the proof but yet you are still trying to sell it as an alien creation '.That would make them look a touch stupid, wouldn't it ?
We have experienced such a possibility back in 2010 with the Lurkley Hill cross. As we witnessed its creation and I was the first to report it and I stated at the time that it was 100% man made, the reluctance to post images or even make it know to the public stood out like a sore thumb !!. It is not until we applied pressure to make the formation know to the world, it is only then images and location were finally posted. When it was finally posted, it was posted with retaliation with the fact that this formation was not one of theirs as it was not reported to them by one of their known makers !!! The retaliation was posted as devil imagery against the cross itself.
The Blame Factor within the code:
The code on the snakes back was probably the most intriguing rather than the creation itself, my guess it was intentional to concentrate on the code rather than the bad crop formation.
BEWARE 666 could be deciphered as easily as beware of the devil ( lets not forget the crop circle story of the Heartfordshire mowing devil ) or could it even possibly be against Matthew Williams who has recently started a live internet show know as Crop Circle Makers TV. Matthew Williams speaks and invites crop circle makers who deliver testimonies that they have made crop circle for many years. So could this be a possibility that someone has created this snake against the show as Matthew does also use the name as ' Truthseekers666' . This of course is a speculation made by someone on a facebook page. But then the SAM3 creates contradiction as then the blame is then placed on US !!
SAM3 Has been deciphered as SUE AND MIKE ( rather convenient ) or SUE ANDREW MIKE ( 3 could be the 3 of us ! ) rather convenient again.
BUT Sam3 Could also stand for:
Steve Alexander Mothman !! Steve used this alias name in a battle of words between Charles Mallet and Himself. You can read the whole story here LINK
OR SAM3 could also be the Urban Art Group found here: LINK . Rather conveniently they have a photo of a ladder on the wall - SNAKES AND LADDERS ! Just a thought !
If you type in SAM3 in google you will get ALL sorts of possibilities.
But as always the opposition like to use what suites them best !
Lets be honest and say ' Would you sign a crop circle formation with your initials with a code that was easily deciphered ? ' Hmmm I don't think so !
So whoever created this formation must have had some kind of intention to BLAME someone else, knowing that it would create confusion amongst the crop circle community !! Guess and speculation of course but that's how it appears to me !
Sonya Bailey was quick of the mark to instigate an investigation ( bells immediately rang that it wasnt one of their crew that made this formation ! )
Below are all the facebook screen shots - have you seen other formations get this much attention ?
Not one of the best formations thats for sure but the concept is quite intriguing.
