Similarities of Mandala Art and Alien Crop Circles
October 4, 2015 12:21am CST
Since we had a lot of free time at work last week I spent it on doodling mandalas. We couldn't go online while on training and it was making me sleepy what with all the sleep deprivation I've been doing so I doodled the time away. For some reason, I got interested in mandalas some months ago. And because we had idle time at work, it felt appropriate to start doing something new for an artwork to make my time more productive. I've been posting these mandala doodles in my Instagram account after playing with photo filters. While browsing through other people's mandala art in that site, I realized crop circles look quite similar to mandalas. If we don't take it seriously, maybe the aliens are just having fun and making art stamps on earth. Don't you think aliens are just doodling on earthly wheat fields for art's sake? Or maybe they're doing it to impress a potential mate, just like the puffer fish in Japan who makes underwater "crop circles".

Thank you. I read about the Mandelbrot image earlier. It's fascinating indeed and also because it is somehow related to quadratic equations I think? Oh my. After seeing those equations I don't think my busy brain would want to dwell much on it. My mind is on other things now and not much on equations. I'd rather just draw and doodle freehand mandalas since I can't even do proper meditation just yet.

Mandalas and crop circles are great sources of inspiration for meditation, and there is probably not a better place to meditate than a meeting at office. I often draw caricatures during meetings. Of course, some aliens are great artists, some others just want to have fun with us.

@topffer Yes that's true. I saw some pics of mandalas on draperies and when I looked in the middle it was like you're being drawn into it or something. So much for my meditation problem. I think I finally found the solution. Better to doodle at work instead of getting caught dozing off. Wonder why aliens draw crop circles on our fields though. Don't they have their own planet to draw on? They must be showing off their artistic talent for all the humans to see.

Your doodles are beautiful, my dear. You reminded me of our daughter No. 4 who loves doing it & posting it on her instagram too. BTW, I've seen these crop circles in books & mags which were said to be from aliens. It made me think hard. In fact, I'd been already having difficult time reading the theories & looking at the stonehenge. It gives me lots of ??? Well... at my age, thinking so hard will do me no good. I leave it to you, the young minds.

Thank you mam. Maybe I will see your daughter's work on Instagram one day. It's okay to think about such things at any age. No one is going to take our thoughts away from us anyway. We're free to think what we want to think and wonder about. After all we might think of the best answer, who knows?
