Crop Circles

COLUMBIA CENTER CROP CIRCLESReported Crop Circles for the State of New York 

Vickerman Hill, Columbia Center / Mohawk/Jordanville/ Mohawk Valley, Herkimer County (June 21, 1993)

Four circles were found linked by pathways appeared on a steep hill. The circle diameters were: 20’5”, 45’, 43’5”, and 88’. All the circles were slightly elliptical in the North-South direction. Three of the circles were swirled clockwise, with one circle counter-clockwise. Two of the pathways were found to extend about halfway to the centers of two of the circles, while the rest of the pathway ends terminated at the meeting point with the circles.

Areas of ‘randomly-downed’ crop also in the field. Expulsion cavities and lateral node splitting was found. BOL’s reported. The Syracuse Herald-Journal on 8-2-1993 reports that a passing truck driver claims he witnessed several objects hovering in the air above the field just before the formation was discovered, and that thunderstorms were reported in the area around the time of discovery. W.C. Levengood analyzed samples taken from the formation and found significant node bending as compared to the controls, ‘expulsion cavities’, growth suppression in germination studies, and reduced electrical conductivity (Alpha Change) in the bract tissue surrounding the seeds. NY State Police turned up no evidence to suggest a hoax.

Masahiro Kahata: Studied the Crop Circles in 1993

Masahiro Kahata began his electronics and computing research studies in 1965 at the Tomakomai National Technical College in Japan.Masahiro was involved with the many technological innovations flowing out of Japan since the 1970s.These include the origin of digital technology, the interface of digital technology to sound systems, and the development of the 8″ floppy disk.At the time, Masahiro was the first user in Japan of custom-designed Integrated Circuits (IC) and Operational Amplifier (OP AMP) to use with an audio system and mixing console.This has now become a standard practice within the industry.Also during the 1970s, following a personal psychic experience, Masahiro began Psychic Labs, Inc., to conduct research on psychic phenomena, which led to his later development of brain wave technology.

From 1984 through 1987, Masahiro served as Chief Lab Researcher for Japan’s leading Computer Corporation, ASCII.Here he performed research on human interface design for a new computer system, which led to his development of what would become the Interactive Brainwave Visual Analyzer (IBVA) technology.
From 1995 on, Masahiro has continued private research with Crop Circles and other psychic phenomena, traveling extensively and upgrading IBVA software.Most recently, he launched the IBVA Coherence Project for advanced users with Ian Macfarlane in Cape Town, South Africa (Coherence Project South Africa 2002).In 1987, he left the Japanese Hi-Tech Industry to work full-time on the IBVA as Psychic Labs, Inc., and moved to the USA the following year.After also moving his company to New York, the IBVA brainwave technology began to ship in 1991.It attracted much media interest and publicity.In 1993-94, Masahiro joined with partners to start IBVA Technologies, Inc.The IBVA won a product award at the prestigious MacWorld Convention in New York in 1998.Masahiro left IBVA Technologies in August of 2002.He is now working privately at Psychic Labs, Inc. 300w" sizes="(max-width: 636px) 100vw, 636px" /

IBVA is a Brain Computer Interface for monitoring brainwaves sold internationally since the early 1990s. IBVA reveals inner state changes in human brainwaves (EEG) in 3D and in realtime giving interactive control. IBVA stands for “Interactive Brainwave Visual Analyser. It is ‘an electronic mirror for the mind’ brought to you by IBVA UK – specialist supplier for the world’s smallest, wireless, portable brainwave monitor. An essential tool giving you freedom to research, record and analyse brainwaves (EEG) – for creative Neurofeedback and changing your Mind !
