The above animation shows how all genuine crop circles and complex pictograms with their signature clockwise and counter-clockwise swirls are made.
When in operation above a real crop field, the metallic orbs cause an electro-magnetic distribution effect upon standing crops which enables the relief outlines of a pre-programmed design to emerge.

But whenever a futuristic contraption like this is deployed, it’s not E.T. that we look to, but to a particular myth that resides in antiquity.
In ‘The Secret Teachings of All Ages,’ Manly P. Hall (1901-1990) states that:
“Atlantean sun worship has been perpetuated in the ritualism and ceremonialism of both Christianity and Pagandom. Both the cross and the serpent were Atlantean emblems of divine wisdom. The divine (Atlantean) progenitors of the Mayas and Qhichas of Central America coexisted within the green and azure radiance of Gucamatz, ‘The plumed serpent.'
The six sky born sages came into manifestation as centres of light, bound together and synthesized by the seventh and chief of their order, the feathered snake. The title of ‘winged’ or ‘plumed’ snake was applied to Quetzalcoatl or Kukulcan, the Central American initiate. The centre of the Atlantean wisdom was presumably a great pyramidal temple standing on the brow of a plateau rising in the midst of the city with golden gates. From here the initiate priests of the Sacred Feather went forth carrying the keys of universal wisdom to the uttermost parts of the world.”
In the 19th century, a paper entitled 'Chronologie Historique des Mexicains,' was published. Here, the researcher Charles-Étienne Brasseur de Bourbourg (1814-1874) concluded that a small diaspora of so-called 'Atlanteans' had built the temple complexes of Mesoamerica, terminating at the Yucatán Peninsula.
If the Yucatán was where the myth terminated: could it, “to the uttermost parts of the world” be reappearing today in the form of a world-wide crop circle phenomenon? If so, then where did these circle-makers of Mayan descent come to possess such an advanced gravity defying technology?
This additional information seems to reflect certain parallels between an island state known as Aztlan and that of Atlantis. Notwithstanding the fact that the Ah Tzai (who'd found refuge in Mexico) were known to be highly cultured; Aztlan also went the way of Atlantis.
Judging by that opening statement by Manly P. Hall, the present day Pyramid of Quetzalcoatl in Teotihuacán (just outside of Mexico City) could now figure greatly in the search for this lost land. Luckily, a major clue left behind by the pyramid’s builders should at least take us in the general direction of Aztlan.
In the above frieze, all of the Feathered Serpent sculptures featured here are to be expected. What is entirely unexpected are the numbers of sea shell carvings that decorate the pyramid’s lower steps; an edifice 200 miles from the nearest Ocean.
Excavations made here in 1922 recovered many hundreds of marine shells from the top of and entrance to the pyramid. A further process of identification found that the most prominent shell was from a Turbinella genus known to the Teotihuacános as the 'divine conch.'
Pre-Columbian iconography informs us that the breastplate insignia that conferred the office of the Quetzal priest-king was partially constructed from a conch shell. Evidently, a section of this so-called ‘spirally voluted wind jewel breastplate’ was formed out of a transverse cut of this large shell.
Surely that explains it! As far as pointers to Aztlan are concerned, these real shell artifacts now seem nothing more than a throwback to the time when this icon of the breastplate had cause to be commemorated in stone.
One imagines that for this breastplate, these large shells would’ve been collected either from Mexico's Pacific coastline or along its eastern Gulf coast.
The only problem with this theory is that the conch recovered from this pyramid was not local to Mexican coastlines. This shell is mostly found on Caribbean islands!
In the early 1980’s, a U.S. underwater survey team discovered a large structure lying on the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean; not far from the islands that make up ‘The Little Bahama Bank’ in the Bahamas.
Further deep water camera dives proceeded to unveil startling images of a massive truncated pyramid still in one piece. Incredibly, the filming had not only captured a style of construction reminiscent of a Quetzalcoatl Temple, but it also featured the same Toltec-esque stepped terrace design found in all of the pyramids at the Teotihuacán complex.
We can therefore conclude that deep below the Bahamas lies an ancient cityscape engulfed by the Atlantic Ocean.
After the year 2012 the story continues ...
