Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungFor years, people have been both fascinated and mystified by complex designs that suddenly appear at night on fields of grain. Nobody knows how they got there, or why. They leave the grain stalks in flattened swirls, virtually undamaged. They exhibit mathematical precision, demonstrate principles of geometry and portray ancient religious symbols. Since the 1980s, some 10,000 crop circles have appeared. Each year the count grows and the designs get more intricate. Secrets in the Fields is the most thoroughly researched, most comprehensive book on the market about crop circles phenomena. The author takes readers on an exhilarating firsthand field trip into the heart of this mystery. He introduces us to farmers, researchers, scientists, mystics, hoaxers, and debunkers. He tells: How to distinguish a hoax from an authentic crop circle; The role of UFOs/aliens in the creation of crop circles; What crop circles might mean; How a theory of music may account for their creation.
