ANCIENT GREEK SYMBOLS IN Crop Circlesby Maria Ballos
Crop circles often are not just impressions of flying saucers, but geometric designs with encrypted messages. Many of them are influenced by ancient Greece.
We start with a Greek pattern of particular interest as it is based on the so-called "circles of Apollonius" -types of cycles that are tangent to three given circles in the plane. Associated with Apollonius of Perge, an eminent Greek Geometry (262 BC - 190 BC), who raised and solved the problem in his book "Contacts".
