Comparison with original Arecibo message

The original Arecibo message was transmitted as a two trillion watt (omnidirectional equivalent, 1MW actual) broadcast from the Arecibo radio telescope in Puerto Rico. The message was sent in a very narrow beam towards a globular cluster known as M13, 25,100 light years away. It was a pictogram arranged in a matrix of 23 pixels by 73 pixels. It was intended to describe our numbering system, the building blocks and formulas for DNA, a double helix symbol of DNA, a figure of a human being, our solar system, and a diagram of the radio telescope that sent the message.

The crop formation looked very similar to the Arecibo message with some very interesting differences. Below the dot pattern for our numbering system, the crop formation had an additional pattern that indicated the atomic number of silicon in addition to the hydrogen, carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, and phosphorus numbers. Instead of a double helix symbol of DNA, the crop formation depicted three sets of diagonal lines that may indicate three strands of DNA.

Instead of a depiction of a human being, as presented in the Arecibo message, the crop pattern had a different depiction of a humanoid form. This new image showed a body with two arms and legs like humans, but the head was much larger. The height of the crop formationís body was indicated as being a little taller than half the height of a human. The dot pattern in the crop formation indicated a population that was almost six and a half billion larger than our own.

The Arecibo message depicted the 9 planets around the Sun with the symbol for Earth raised above the rest to indicate where humanity lives. Earthís dot was also located directly below the depiction of man. In the crop formation, there were three symbols that were raised above the rest. They may indicate the planets of Earth, Mars, and Nibiru. However, it was the symbol for Mars that was located directly below the humanoid body.

At the very bottom of both formations, there are distinctly different dot patterns. The Arecibo message had a depiction of the telescope that sent the message with an indicated size of 2,430 feet. The crop formation had a depiction of something else with a size of 6,748 feet. It was very similar to another crop formation of one year earlier in the very same wheat field that depicted a new form of radiated energy.
