During 1996 several breakthroughs occurred in the Awakening. Genuine implants were dug out of contactees and examined by scientists, real UFOs were captured on video and shown to the public by CNN, and a crop circle was filmed in the making. Filmed under circumstances that could hardly be questioned, the video nevertheless was roundly criticized and pronounced to be a fake, which it is not! Where crop circle fraud, or at least fraudulent claims, had been running parallel with the real thing in England, here was the real thing! It has taken a bit for the reality of that fact to sink in, but the validity of the video is now beyond dispute. It stands as testimony beside the human witnesses who have stated that crop circles are laid down almost in an instant, something no human hand could accomplish.
