... bringing the Crop Circle phenomenon sensibly into the 21st century.
of a New Phenomenon?
My original thought was could there be a link between crop circles and the 'monoliths'?

November 2020. This is where it started. The first mysterious monolith incidentally found by an aerial survey group in the Utah desert. Evidently had been in situ for 5 years.Photo David Surber with thanks. The shiny surface looks like stainless steel.
All that was left after the 'mono' disappeared shortly after discovery was a triangular relief and the metal top. That looks like galvanised sheet material, at least on this face. The hard bedrock has been cut surgically to provide a base. Photo: Zak Podmore with thanks. https://www.instagram.com/p/CIJ_M0AHfDL/?utm_source=ig_embed&utm_campaign=embed_video_watch_again
The finger is pointing to what the visitor describes as a resin like material that is thought to have helped anchor the 'mono' in place.
Next to have one was Romania.

URBAN trend (were most have been in a RURAL setting) seems to be evolving. This time we have a monolith popping up in El Passo Texas, again much the same shape and design as the previous ones, As with others the structure was removed by persons/ unknown (which seems to be the trend overall) probably opportunist locals but my bet is that government officials will be on their doorstep very soon!
10.12.20 Latest monolith sat right in front of Glastonbury Tor no less! with 'NOT BANKSEY' etched on one face. Could it be that the genuine creators are making a clear point here? Again same design and looks like same material as others. If this was a human event they were very strong and went to a lot of trouble and expense, and for what gain? Artists usually look for recognition. That's a long gruelling climb up there to the top. Getting closer to the crop circle country? If we got one right in the middle of a circle next season it would not surprise me at all. Photo 'Visions of Somerset 'with thanks.
And another in a potato field in Belgium. They all look quite similar: I am wondering if the 'planters' recycle them, from one location to another. Photo VRT.BE with thanks.
10.12.20 This one is in Aargau Castle, Switzerland in a vineyard. I'm sure government officials will become increasingly interested in what could turn out to be the beginnings of a phenomenon. Up until the time of writing 1230hrs. we have now had x3 reported today. Photos Salomon Barr with thanks.
GERMANY: The town of Sulzbach discovered a monolith at the weekend near a shopping centre, considerately placed right on the edge of a crop field.
Helvetica Light is an easy to read font, with tall and narrow letters, that works well on almost every site.
A second monolith was spotted in Poland on Wednesday last by the banks of the Vistula river in Warsaw.
There appears to be a constant evolving here. Pretty much all of these monoliths seem to be made to the same high engineering standard and specification. Admittedly some show what look like surface rivets but in a way that adds to their appeal, as in the example above. I would suggest that if multiple random human beings around the world were to be responsible (as opposed to an organised and coordinated global collective operating out from a central factory with high end shipping facilities) the end product would exhibit a variance peculiar to the style and capabilities of the individual craftsman. No gains or hopes for notoriety would seem apparent with what must be an increasingly costly business. Thus far, apart from one or two myth-makers, predictable attention seeking opportunists claiming responsibility, like we get with the crop circles, nobody has shown credibility. Artist's usually look for accreditation/recognition and business, financial reward. Not here...so far.
Reported 8.12.20 This is amazing! Standing in a river in Deux-Sèvres, France this monolith has raised flux etching that looks like it was created with the aid of a welder. How beautiful. These things are definately evolving. Whatever next? Photo N24 with thanks.

The smooth stainless steel column is 2.5 metre tall and about half a mile from the nearest road on the north of the Moor on Dartmoor, another monolith just positioned then abandoned. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9043845/Britains-monolith-mysteriously-appears-Dartmoor.htmlhttps://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-eng:land-devon-55260538

12.12.20 No.4 for UK. Wow! A new 'monolith' right in the middle of Mary Maiden Stone Circle, St. Buryan, Cornwall. My hunch may well have been correct. The very top title on this page article was inspired by this possibility over a week ago. My original thought centred around the crop circles being linked to these columns, getting a metal monolith in a formation next season. However, this one in Cornwall seems to bring the idea one step closer. I'd almost put money on it. Worth a punt I'd say! Please watch video linked below by Luke Brown who reported it. Looks very neat around the base with no evidence of disturbed earth. This is an historic British Heritage site so it would take a very bold person to erect a structure here without permission; it would constitute a serious offence. Many thanks Luke (copyright) for photo. This all gets crazier and crazier. https://www.unilad.co.uk/news/another-monolith-discovered-in-middle-of-stone-circle/

To supplement the above and to somehow add accreditation maybe, I have spent the last 12 years monitoring, recording and researching the crop circles in the south west of England. Literally based in a camper van on location each year in the summer months, in the landscape (please note I have an otherwise 'normal' lifestyle with house and home) I, with help from friendly farmers with whom I liaise with and others, have got to know the crop circles as well as one possibly could I'd say. We have raised £32k(https://www.coregroupinitiative.com) for cancer charity (a PR exercise bridging the gap between the farming community and the general public) by managing the farmer's field free of charge. (check out articles etc on this w/s) This allows me to research the circles like nobody else has ever done before as I am present next to a circle 24/7. So if we do get a 'monolith in a crop formation next year I guess myself with coregroupinitiative are best placed to embrace and manage the event properly...and believe me, it will need good land, traffic and people managing working with many farmers of whom I have good relationships.
So when I say there could be a link between the 'monoliths' and the CCs I am serious. I know what the circle creators are capable of based on empirical evidence. So what's that you say. Well in a nutshell I have been 1st human being in several CCs over my 12 years of researching and witnessed the virgin evidence on the ground. Often there are biophysical anomalies present in the form of crop stem node bending. This bending is present from early on day one of the circle's creation so cannot be due to phototropism or sun seeking as they usually happen within the hours of darkness. It usually takes several/many days for plant to re-adjust towards light depending on weather conditions. That is the empirical and undeniable evidence that most CCs are of mysterious origin. I could present that to any scientist in the world and they would not be able to contradict me. So if some 'agency' let's say can do that maybe a 'monolithic' interface is not such a far stretch. Think about this. Please share this article with your friends. Thanks.
12.12.20 Today in Otrokovice near Zlín, Czech. Looks shorter than previous events. By the angle of the camera I would estimate at about 4' 6" - 5'. https://www.praguemorning.cz/after-u-s-germany-romania-belgium-mystery-monolith-appears-in-the-czech-republic/
Zamkova Hora hill in Kiev, Ukraine. This one seems to have a different finish to the surface. Different material? The surgical way in which has been placed in the soil is impressive.
No.5 for UK. This one on the Jurassic Coast between Lyme Regis and Charmouth looks little different somehow. Maybe wider, less tall and rounded steel. Is morphing about to start? We have 5 'monoliths' in the SE England now, which incidentally has been the focus of crop circle activity historically. Are we about to see clustering here? The plot thickens! https://lyme-online.co.uk/news/lyme-regis/is-this-britains-fifth-monolith/
14.12.20 No.6 now for the UK. Mandeville primary school, St. Albans. Happened over night. This is getting serious when, with such a location and the police in attendance taking forensic samples. Why would they take samples if they thought this was all a big joke? Photos Mandeville primary school with thanks. https://www.hertsad.co.uk/news/education/mysterious-mandeville-monolith-1-6958377
Iran. A new 3m (heavy, getting bigger) 'monolithic' towering structure has popped up at the top of a valley in Niknam-Deh, a small very remote village north of Jajrud, around 15 kilometres east of Tehran. I've personally travelled in this area and it is rough. If somebody were to try overland access to this location it would take an age with this thing and locals would immediately be all over you. When asked the locals knew nothing of it; that is unimaginable in this area! Only way here is helicopter.

If indeed these columns are in fact the work of, let's say a Covid-idle, globally coordinated collective, altruistic humans donating for no gain, for all to wonder at and with I imagine huge financial and skill based resources, that would really restore my faith in human nature. But from an engineering POV the high workmanship quality and design seems to be a constant. Like crop circles they pretty much all seem perfect. People vary in their abilities and sometimes make mistakes. If they turn out to be of off-earth origin I personally will not be surprised at all. One can only imagine what all this is about if that were to be the case! A great distraction though in these rather miserable times.

17.12.20 Sweden. No.2 Gatstuberg hill outside Katrineholm in Södermanland County. This one looks well grounded! Maybe its trying to say something to us..."Leave me here please"'. It made sure it had a great view though. Image: Robin Persson with thanks.
I wonder what those curious black dots are...don't look like' rivets'.

20.12.20 New Zealand. Christchurch Adventure Park in the Port Hills. 3 mts high (heavy metal) was discovered yesterday morning."Wasn't there at 5pm yesterday". say staff. Only entrance 750mts away. There is perimeter fence.
I could not dig a hole so precisely to accommodate this column without it being bigger and untidier.Looks surgical. Of course it may be spiked in on the surface. Fabrication perfect as usual. No fingerprints as if carried over 750mts rough terrain. Photos: Christchurch Adventure Park with thanks.
20.12.20 Utah. Quincy. USA Snow circle monolith. Refer to top of this page. Seems like the prediction is getting closer. First stone circle with mono then now a snow circle with mono. Umm!

Ambialet in the Tarn, France. Reported 19th December. We've seen this beautiful design many times before globally. This event seems to sit so well high up in this rugged landscape and sited in what looks like solid rock. Not sure how you would secure such a top heavy metal item unless you had a rock drilling device. Photo: Christian Rivière - FTV with thanks.

Jury's out on this one. This topic gets more and more bizarre.
26.12.20 If you think the last one was bizarre take a look at this one. Monolith appeared early Christmas Day on a hilltop in Corona Heights Park overlooking the Castro neighbourhood in San Fransico. Made of something many who were on-site believe to be GINGERBREAD complete with icing and decorative buttons, the column smelt strongly of gingerbread which evidently is a Christmas treat for many in the US. It is not known at this time if the structure is solid all the way through. However one report suggested a plywood frame. I don't believe I'm actually writing this! If this event turns out to be mysterious like so many others around the world it must surely rank as one of the weirdest occurrences ever!

Well, that didn't last long! This photo was taken yesterday. The construction appears to be centred around a metal frame upon which a wooden or other surface was placed and covered in what we understand to be gingerbread. It is not yet known what actually happened to the remains. Often as we know these structures vanish without a trace. Photo ABC7 with thanks.
29.12.20 As of today there have been 136 reported 'mono' events worldwide. In reality probably a lot more that have not been reported. In view of the sheer numbers I have decided to only page-post here what I regard as events of significant public interest.
Woodstock, New York. USA. reported 25th and vanished 27 December is documented more closely here: https://www.coregroupinitiative.com/single-post/woodstock-christmas-day-2001-monolith
Gränichen, Switzerland No.2 Schloss Liebegg on the 25 after it had vanished on Thursday 17th December. Now reappeared, same hight (2.7m), same material stainless steel, exact position in the middle of the surrounding (3) circles. They really seem to like circles, don't they? Now that is really odd! Photo: Anon.
The circles are part of an established brick garden ornamental design and not part of the monolithic scematic. To me it suggests their is an interest or empathy towards circles generally. Earlier we had a 'mono' in a stone circle in Cornwall, UK and another in Quincy, MA. USA.
