The Beginnings of a Conversation
"crop circles and some truth"

"All I want is the truth, just gimme some truth." -- John Lennon 1971
Since education always illuminates the truth, we'll start with the newsletter Swirled News and its crop circle primer, view the Youtube: English Crop Circles and take a look at the Crop Circle Connector: 2009 crop circles.

"The Widow Reason, One Crop Circle and Another Chance At Love."
On a fine summer morning, we watch the Widow Reason as she takes some of her friends, and two acquaintances, on one of her famous adventures. This time she takes them to a brand new crop circle on July 21, 2009.
They meander through the full length of the crop circle, then walk ahead to look back at it. Reason asked her friends to share their thoughts about this phenomena in general.
It started out well.
Hope went first; she talked of great projects in the future influenced by these crop circles, and then left, as usual, to a standing ovation. Rationality was next, but couldn't pick up where Hope left off, so he didn't make much sense. Science tried to talk, but was questioned mercilessly for not knowing enough and being arrogant in his ignorance. Mathematics had two new math theorems come forth in one hour, but couldn't explain his song to anyone else. Physics said hello to his cousin and now stands up straighter with examples to explain himself. Art is already at work recreating herself, before kicking back and watching her own growth. Democracy kept asking why her minions wouldn't let her citizens see those crop circles, but only Politics listened. Spirituality just smiled, saying, "Man, you ain't never seen nothing like that before." Religion was gonna punch Discovery, but couldn't be seen doing that, so he hired Politics to do the punching, but Discovery had already left to look at other crop circles. Trust walked around looking bewildered, so he had a few drinks and met Humor, who had disguised herself as Art. Later that evening, Humor took Trust home with her and they made sweet love so divine. Persistence seemed to be everywhere with his whistle except when he walked silently with Spirituality. Reason just watched and relaxed; every few minutes she would give Truth a hug. Truth just kept pointing at the crop circle laughing softly. Media, who had gotten in disguised as Communication, looked at the same crop circle, whispered nervously and fell all over himself running towards Money. Money just stood there; he was in no hurry, knowing most everyone would eventually come to him about this. The Widow Reason was enjoying Truth. She liked everything about him, his words, his smell and his laughter. She saw romance on the horizon for the first time since her husband Balance had been killed by Havoc. Reason needed to ask Experience for advice and she'd have to talk to Money one more time. Experience was just plain expensive.
