Crop Circle Depicts Proton-Proton Chain Reaction



I stumbled across this crop circle while researching Stonehenge for potential links to my Particle Mutation Theory (PMT).

While I did not find what I thought might exist at Stonehenge, more research is in order there, I did come across a crop circle that instantly grabbed my attention and I just had to concentrate and figure out what my subconscious was telling me.

Image 1 is a crop circle from 2009 at Manton, Whiltshire, UK. I don’t know if the crop circle is authentic. When I say authentic, I mean is a naturally occurring phenomena.

I need to point out right away, I am not a crop circle theorist, nor am I a believer in mysticism or other metaphysical sciences. Instead, I am a firm believer in science.

As far as crop circles go, there are two potential origins of crop circles; man made and NOT man made. I don’t claim to know the difference between the two and if anyone has a way of classifying them, I would greatly appreciate your feedback, especially with regards to the crop circle mentioned here.

If the crop circle from Image 1 was given a name, I would entitle it:

The Origin Of All Life In The Universe


The following information was taken from It is a good interpretation of how stars react hydrogen and helium. For the purposes of this article we will focus on the four (4) reactions that lead to the creation of Beryllium (Be).

1: Hydrogen Reaction 1

Two Hydrogen atoms are combined to create a Hydrogen-2 atom.

Between the two Hydrogen atoms that are about to be reacted (red circles at bottom), we have a circle that represents a Star (our Sun is a star) and a line emanating from the symbol of a star.

The line is symbolic of the “reaction path” and characterizes the end result of this reaction being light.

There are four horizontal lines between the Star and the 2H product, and these are thought to represent the two phases of Hydrogen reaction and the two phases of Helium reaction from this four phase reaction.

The two 1H circles represent the two hydrogen atoms that are combined to created a Hydrogen-2 atom. Hydrogen-2 is shown as the smaller circle at the top marked 2H.

2: Hydrogen Reaction 2

Here we have Hydrogen-2 and Hydrogen combining to create a Helium-3. Helium-3 has 2 proton, 2 electrons, and 1 neutron.

This is the last reaction using Hydrogen. After this reaction we get into the Helium reactions.

The area marked by the green rectangle represents the reaction between Hydrogen-2 and Hydrogen along the reaction path.

Notice the size of the 2H circle compared with the H circle. The 2H circle is approximately twice the size of the H circle. This represents a reaction between 2H or heavy hydrogen and a hydrogen atom.

The difference in sizes of the the circle is thought to represent a step down in the reaction order or magnitude of the atom in question.

3: Helium Reaction 1

In this stage of the proton-proton chain we see a reaction between two Helium-3 atoms.

The result of this reaction is a Helium-4 atom and two Hydrogen atoms. Each Helium-3 has 2 protons and 1 neutron.

Each green rectangle depicts a Helium-3 (3H) atom. We see a circle in the center (atom) with three branches (not including the reaction path branch).

The three branches likely represent 2 protons and 1 neutron that comprise a Helium-3 atom.

From the green rectangles the crop circle has a reaction path (line between them moving forward) and at this point the crop circle shows us in detail the result of this stage of the reaction, a Helium-4 atom.

The pink rectangle depicts the Helium-4 (4H) atom. The crop cirlce has 4 circles surrounding the inner circle and 2 more circles further out.

Helium-4 atoms are comprised of 2 proton and 2 neutrons (4 circles orbiting the central circle) and 2 electrons (2 circles further out).

4: Helium Reaction 2

The final stage of both the Helium reaction phase and the Proton-Proton chain.

Helium-4 reacts with Helium-3 to produce Beryllium-7.

The green rectangle depicts the reaction path and like previously the combination of the Helium-4 atom with the next order down Helium-3 atom.

Like the result producing Helium-4, this result is also depicted with its electron count and is encompassed by the purple dashed line.

There are 4 protons, 4 electrons, and 3 neutrons with Beryllium-7.

The first two phases with Hydrogen are shown with less detail than the last two phases with Helium (electrons are not referenced). Therefore as the crop circle progresses from bottom to top, its structure becomes more revealing.

This changing of “scope” is the reason why our interpretation differs slightly as we look at the reactions more closely.


It could mean nothing, but it could mean something. These are the two likely outcomes of this interesting observation.

The next question I have is this crop circle human made or a naturally occurring phenomena?

If it is human made, well done. You managed to characterize the Proton-Proton chain in a crop circle that at least 1 other person has been able to decipher. On the other hand, if this is NOT human made, who created it? Why?

We are never likely to know the truth.

As the reader, what are your thoughts?


Before there were stars or a universe there was nothing followed by a Big Bang.

At the beginning when the universe was just newly created there were no stars just plasma. Soon the plasma cooled and simple elements came into being.

Hydrogen dominated the universe, started to clump together, and formed nebulaes. Before long a combination of mass and pressure birthed the first stars.

At this time there was no life in the Universe. There were no heavy elements like carbon, gold, or iron. These elements still awaited formation. The Proton-Proton chain is a simple way of explaining what happens in stars. We start with Hydrogen and end up with Beryllium. Light elements to heavy elements.

As time past even more, carbon, gold, iron and other heavy elements came into being but they were trapped in the hearts of stars. Thankfully, as is the circle of life, these first stars eventually died. Some didn’t die peacefully.

When a star dies in a Supernova it scatters itself across the universe. Among the debris of these massive explosions were the building blocks of life. As in our case, carbon was instrumental in the creation of life on Earth.

We owe our very existence to the Proton-Proton chain reaction. That’s why when I look at this crop circle I see the origin of all life in the universe.
