active in promoting environmental awareness and education,

He is convinced that the real phenomenon is interacting
with both crop circle researchers and people who make
some of them. He has, for many years, held the view that
our future is at the center of what is occurring. Since
the late 80's, he has repeatedly stated that he believes
the interactions are showing the mapping out of a possible
period of human chaos. As in the human ability to remotely
view glimpses of the future, which can be altered by changing
current trends, the period of chaos is based upon current
trends, which can also be changed.
