Colin Andrews on Coast

I have always ignored the whole crop circle scene, but Colin Andrews recently gave a solid overview (even defense) of the phenomenon. I've heard him on other shows, and he's always impressed me as a reliable researcher. As always, I give more weight to the field researchers (as opposed to the armchair dabblers, like me). He had the lucky break of being financed for a couple of years by closet paranormalist Laurance Rockefeller, who, before he passed away, tried to do the impossible--pin down the UFO phenomenon. In other words, Andrews did real scientific research on crop circles, which awaits replication (although this may have already been performed by the MOD).

I'd really like to get his DVD "Conscious Circles," mostly to hear his fortuitous recording of a strange interruption of a 1977 BBC broadcast by an anomalous "voice," supposedly heard by "millions"; I'm almost sure that I read about this at the time in "Fate" magazine. If I have any feeble talent, it's in hearing. I have wasted the bulk of my life listening to (not to mention, downloading, buying, or recording) things, and I think I can hear aspects of audio that most may overlook.

Andrews discussed several intriguing anomalies that seem to be not only truly strange, but properly vetted.

Andrews argues that the crop circle phenomenon is associated with an effort by "someone" to advance human consciousness. (I hope he is right.) He alluded to the persistent theme of much New Age, paranormal, as well as indigenous philosophy--the cataclysms that are predicted to occur in this century.

I've argued that such predictions have historically proven to be wrong. Still, they persist, and they continue to surface in a number of personal visions and premonitions. As someone who has followed these predictions for 30-plus years, I think it's interesting that they have always proved to be both incorrect and persistent.

So, as I was listening to Andrews, I began to wonder if these predictions (as well as mass unconscious forebodings) of earth cataclysms were part of the same attempts by "someone" to change human consciousness.

The earth cataclysms seen by many may well occur; or, they may not, if the race takes a certain path. Implicit in such visions is the requirement that we, collectively, change our ways, swiftly. It reminds me very much of the apocalyptic prophesies that Jehovah pronounced on the children of Israel. Those predictions were designed to modify behavior (as well as replenish the coffers of the priestly caste).

The phenomenon of prophesy may be a core aspect of our collective memory as well as a historical tool to tweak human consciousness. In our heavily materialistic age, we believe that we are victims of a material reality that we barely control. But what if our material experience is a function of our consciousness? What if the the human collective consciousness not only influences, but determines, the future?

In such a model, tweaking human consciousness becomes supremely important. Predicting disasters that subsequently do not materialize may be a tool needed to modify our collective consciousness.

Andrews also alluded briefly to the fact that Earth's population will soon reach seven billion. I immediately wondered if there might be some invisible trigger: When Earth's population passes a certain limit, a change of consciousness would be triggered. Quite possible.


  1. Hiya Ish and happy new year to you.

    I've got a built-in dislike for prophets and prophesies. Apart from their 100% failure rate, they always seem to operate on a carrot or stick basis. 'If you're good you'll get x; if you're bad you'll get y.' They're forever moving the goal-posts and rarely apologise for their nonsense.

    I know very little of Collins, but I can't see him retiring on the last day of 2012 when all his predictions have come to nought. When we're still being humans and our consciousness remains the same, there'll still be books and conferences filling the void with new prophecies. Chances are, you think this a negative view and yet history is its own proof.

    I think people need an extra element to existence to make it fulfilling. For some it's UFOs, others 2012 prophecies and others Saturday football.

    The broadcast was also a hoax (Ashtar Galactic Command! lol). Here''s the wiki and the YT video:

  2. Thanks for the wiki link! If the broadcast is a hoax, it calls into question a significant portion of Collins's model.
