The Wilton Protocol
2nd Crop Circle
Signals Ongoing E.T. Communication Effort
A new formation reported on
June 21, 2010 at Vale of Pewsey near Oare, Wiltshire, clearly
presents a second stage event for a communication protocol first
observed in the Wilton Windmill, near Wilton, Wiltshire formation on
May 22, 2010.
In our first article in this series,
New Wilton, Wiltshire Crop
Circle Signals a Major Communication Event is Coming, we expressed
the opinion that Wilton could be prove to be clear harbinger of what
could be a major communication event this season. With Vale of Pewsey, it certainly has.
According to the the
Crop Circle Connector site,
[Vale of Pewsey in Wiltshire] seems to me to have links to the
Wilton Windmill formation that appeared in oil seed rape earlier in
That assessment really caught our attention because if this new
formation as well as the previous Wilton formation demonstrate
authenticity in the field reports, then we have a clear-cut,
two-stage pattern of and ongoing communication event, we've dubbed
the Wilton Protocol.
Before delving into the impressive new aspect of the Vale of Pewsey
formation June-2010 (the second stage formation to Wilton, May-2010,
we must first go back to the original Wilton formation, for
confirmation of its authenticity.
Wilton Field Report Authentication
Thanks to the excellent field report and photos provided to the Crop
Circle Connector web site by Andrew Pyrka, we now have confirmation
of the authenticity of the Wilton, May-2010 formation.

This formation did have bent stems as
well as broken stems but plants within were not crushed or flattened
and did not display any action of aggression.
We measured and agreed that this formation was 300 feet
measurement was taken down the visible centre line.
As with genuine formations (those not created by drunks with planks
and ropes), this formation Was found to be free of any signs of
“action of aggression.”
Furthermore, the initial report on this formation estimated its
diameter and approximately 200', whereas Andrew Pyka's physical
ground measurement places it at “300 feet... taken down the visible
Now, we look forward to reading the field reports for this latest
21-June-2010 formation at Vale of Pewsey in Wiltshire.
Vale of Pewsey Field Report Authentication
When we first published this article on 21-June-2010, we stated that
the authenticity of this new formation had yet to be confirmed with
a verifiable field report.
Well, now it's in and as the character
Sherlock Holmes was fond of saying, "the game is afoot."

Vale of Pewsey, Reported 22-June-2010
This is the first formation in wheat
this season which at ground level was perfectly and precisely
created - with geometric perfection and swaying wheat in the outer
circle showed clearly that this is Not a man made creation.
is also clearly defined by the way the makers swooped in and out of
the propeller elements of the design.
Another interesting find in this formation is the reddish streak
- these are oats which in one part of the formation covered the
flattened wheat completely - someone has already stated that it gave
the impression of an oil slick.
Photographing formations in young wheat can be a challenge as the
silvery green can clash in trying to capture contrast, so when
viewing images it can give the viewer a negative impression of the
formation - but to what we have witnessed on the night and seeing
this formation at ground level I have no hesitation to inform you
all that this formation is 100% genuine.
What we now is that this second stage formation [Vale of Pewsey]
clearly builds upon the first [Wilton] in a very clear way.
How the Wilton and Vale of Pewsey
The June 21, 2010, Vale of Pewsey in Wiltshire, England formation
adds two new integral concepts to those Established with the May 22,
2010, formation at the Wilton Windmill, near Wilton, Wiltshire.
To help put this in perspective, we will start with a brief summary
of what we presented in our previous article
New Wilton, Wiltshire
Crop Circle Signals a Major Communication Event is Coming and then
build on that with the new aspects presented in the Vale of Pewsey
The findings in our 23-May-2010 article, were that the Wilton
formation represents a hard drive platter similar to those used in
the late 20th century as shown in the illustration below.
In our analysis, we compared the layout of the formation with the
manner of how information is laid out on a hard drive platter.
particular note in this illustration are the four elements of track,
geometrical sector, track sector and cluster.
Vale of Pewsey as The Second Stage Event
When we compare the analysis of the the May 22, 2010, formation at
the Wilton Windmill, near Wilton, Wiltshire with the June 21, 2010,
Vale of Pewsey in Wiltshire formation, we see a clear second stage
that builds upon the Wilton formation.

What we find it incredibly interesting, is this new formation shows
the track illustration on what would be Track 0 of a hard drive
Why Track 0 is Important
There is an important reason for this. Track 0, is where the hard
drive begins reading information. This is because this is where the
most elemental data required to operate your computer is stored.
For example, if Track 0 on your hard drive is corrupted by a virus,
you could wind up having to reinstall your operating system,
programs and so forth. That is if the virus has not destroyed the
hard drive itself.
Therefore, the fact that the message makers are demonstrating the
track concept on Track 0, clearly indicates a familiarity with the
manner in which we routinely store vital data on our computers.
In other words, this is not random or coincidental.
There is clear
intent as to the location and purpose in the appearance of Track 0
in this glyph.
Consequently, what we now have with the Vale of Pewsey formation
(assuming a positive confirmation of authenticity in the field
reports), is a methodical introduction, to a more granular
understanding of what we now refer to as the Wilton Protocol.
We certainly hope that there will be a third formation in this
series of unique formations, as well as a fourth, fifth and so on.
This begs the question, if a third formation does form, what could
it possibly add to this staged dialog, assuming it logically builds
upon the previous two?
What Will the Third Formation May Show Us
What is not shown in the first two crop circle formations in this
series, is the three dimensional nature of modern hard drives and
how they store vast amounts of data.
Given that the Wilton and Vale of Pewsey formations are both
two-dimensional representations, how could the next formation
(assuming it appears) express a three dimensional message?
By adding a new aspect to the Wilton Protocol. Something called a
Cylinders are a common concept with hard drives, as most
all modern drives use multiple platters for high data storage
To illustrate the concept of a cylinder, let's build on the Track 0
concept discussed earlier.
In this simple illustration below, we see
Track 0 as it appears on a single platter.
Now, let's see what happens when we create a representation of a
hard drive similar to the one you most likely have installed in your
computer right now.
High capacity hard drives use multiple platters, stacked one upon
the other much like poker chips.
To illustrate the concept of a cylinder, image that you spread the
chips a bit so that you can count them, much like the illustration
As you can see, each of the three hard drive platters has a Track 0.
A cylinder is comprised of the same track sectors for each platter,
stacked one upon the other as shown in this illustration.
Therefore, our best guess for the third formation to appear in this
series, is that it will convey a three-dimensional encoding, using a
multi-platter hard drive cylinder glyph.
As to a possible fourth formation, who is to say, but what we'll
know for certain once the field report(s) come in for the Vale of
Pewsey formation, that we're on our way to a whole new realm of crop
Preliminary Findings Based on New Authentication of the Vale of
Pewsey Formation Reported 21-June-2010
As I reflect on this Wilton Protocol, what comes to my mind is not
an orderly process as envisioned by the Sacred Geometry Guild.
Rather, when I look at this continual mix of symmetrical and
asymmetrical formations with differing message metaphors over the
years, I see something different happening.
The E.T. crop circle makers are changing the messages so as to find
a reliable way to convey their messages to us in ways we can
understand and participate in. Or more simply stated, they're
throwing spaghetti on the wall to see what sticks on our wall.
That's why things change. When they find something that works,
they'll explore the concept a little further. Consequently, there is
evidence of a
heuristic process on their side as well as ours.
Furthermore, the creators of the
authentic formations, are in my mind, a benign species.
