The 2 Most Important Alien Messages Decoded

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

1. The Chilbolton ‘Arecibo message’ Formation
(Paul Vigay article – additions and correlations by Alexander Light)


On Tuesday 21st August 2001 two new crop formations were reported near Chilbolton radio telescope in Hampshire, UK.

Both were very impressive looking and consisted of a large number of small ‘pixels’, which when viewed from the air formed a recognisable shape – unlike many other crop formations.

One represented a ‘human face’ and the other resembled a radio transmission that SETI (the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence) sent from the Arecibo radio telescope in 1974. 

This latter formation will be examined in this article, in which I hope to not only describe and explain the original transmission, but also to examine and decode a number of significant changes occurring in the crop formation.

After speaking to witnesses, it would appear that the ‘Arecibo’ formation was created on August 20th. Although I could roughly make out the binary pattern of the formation from aerial photographs, some aspects were not quite clear enough to discern individual ‘digits’. Therefore I visited both formations myself (they are about 200m apart in the same field) on Saturday 25th August 2001.”

An interesting interpretation of the ‘human face’ crop formation comes from researcher and writerWayne Herschel. In his vision, the face resembles that of the Egyptian Sphinx and Viracocha, a prea-Inca god. But the most thought-provoking resemblance is to the famous Mars Face.

The Arecibo message


“First, I will give some background to the original message sent from Arecibo, back in 1974. Arecibo is on the northern coast of Puerto Rico and contains a natural disc-shaped hole in the rock. Inside this bowl was constructed the world’s largest radio-telescope, with a diameter of 1000 feet.


In 1974 a number of modifications had been carried out to the transmitter, enabling it to broadcast signals at a power of up to 20 terawatts (1 terawatt = 1 trillion watts) and as an inaugural test of these improvements it was decided by SETI to transmit an encoded message to the heavens. This signal was aimed towards the globular star cluster M13, some 25,000 light years away and consisting of some 300,000 stars in the constellation of Hercules.


The message was actually transmitted on November 16th 1974 and consisted of 1679 pulses of binary code (0′s and 1′s) – which took a little under three minutes to transmit. It was transmitted on a frequency of 2380MHz (which is significant later).

Why 1679 digits?


The reason for this is down to mathematics. 1679 is the unique product of two prime numbers; 23 and 73. Any sufficiently intelligent lifeform would no doubt look for unique, universal constructs – such as prime numbers, chemical element frequencies and binary digits. Don’t forget that because we could be trying to communicate with an intelligence completely different to our own, we cannot talk in terms of ‘human’ systems, such as centimetres, feet, decimal numbers etc.


Because ONLY the two prime numbers 23 and 73, when multiplied together, produce 1679 there can only be a single way to arrange the signal, if you were converting it into a matrix grid – 23 squares by 73 squares.
The original binary code is shown in figure 1.

Binary coding



In order to fully understand the message encoded in the transmission, it’s essential to understand the binary code. This is actually much simpler than our base 10, decimal system. Whereas in base 10 we count from 1 to 9 and then carry 1 into the 10′s column and start again in the units column, until we’ve got 9 in the 10′s column and 9 in the units column. Then we have to carry 1 into the 100′s column and start again in the 10′s and units columns, and so on and so on.


In binary each column goes up in powers of 2, hence the columns are units, 2′s, 4′s, 8′s, 16′s etc. Because we can only deal in 1′s and 0′s, we rapidly move up through the columns – because as soon as we exceed 1 we carry into the next column. For an example of counting in binary, see the table bellow.

To go back to the original transmission of binary pulses (fig.1), by converting it into 23 columns of 73 rows we get the matrix shown in figure 2 (bellow):


You can now see a graphical pattern depicted by the 1′s and 0′s of the code. For clarity I’ve converted this into black squares (representing 1′s) and white (empty) squares (representing 0′s). You can see that viewing it like this, makes the actual message a lot clearer, as shown below, in figure 3 (bellow).
This is where a slight puzzle becomes visible. By performing the steps described above, the literal translation of the original pulses is on the left of figure 3. However, the image printed in a couple of my books is that shown on the right of figure 3. This is an exact left-right mirror image of my decoding. I suspect that this is possibly an error which went un-noticed when the book went to print – although I have checked two books which both depict the same pattern as shown on the right of figure 3.


The pattern which occurred in the Chilbolton crop field, is the same image as shown in the books (ie. the one on the right of fig.3 and the mirror image of the original decoding). This could imply that IF someone hoaxed the formation, they copied the incorrect pattern printed in a book. Alternatively, I may have converted the original pulses by mapping left to right when converting into a 23×73 grid, instead of going from right to left – which personally doesn’t seem correct to my interpretation of the original binary sequence.
If anyone can explain this discrepancy, I would love to hear your comments. However, for the purposes of the rest of this article I shall refer to the pattern physically laid in the crop field. The results are the same because the actual code remains unchanged irrespective of whether it’s the original or a mirror image anyway – as the binary coding remains unaltered.

Decoding the original message


The original message was comprised of several ‘sections’, each depicting a particular aspect of ‘our civilisation’. At the top are binary representations of the numbers one through to ten, interestingly showing the numbers eight, nine and ten as two columns. This shows anyone decoding the message that we can specify that numbers too large to be written on a single line can be ‘carried over’.


The next section contains the binary values 1,6,7,8 and 15 which indicate the atomic numbers of the primary elements for life on Earth; Hydrogen, Carbon, Nitrogen, Oxygen and Phosphorus respectively.
The larger section of three rows, represents the formulas for the sugars and bases in the nucleotides of DNA. Beneath this is a graphical representation of our DNA ‘double helix’ either side of a ‘straight vertical bar’ which indicates the number of nucleotides in DNA.


Directly below the DNA double helix is a small representation of us – humans – with a body and two arms and two legs (like a little stick man). On the left is a binary value of the population of Earth. This can be calculated as roughly 4.29 billion, which is roughly the population of the world, back in 1974. On the right of the humanoid form is a binary code for the height of humans.
Because we cannot communicate in ‘human’ measurements (such as feet and inches) the height is represented in ‘wavelength units’. As mentioned earlier, the actual message was transmitted on 2380MHz. To convert this into a wavelength we divide into 300, to obtain a wavelength in metres. 300/2380 = 0.12605042m = 12.6cm. This is our ‘wavelength unit’.

From the code for the height of a human, we can see that the value is 1110 in binary, or 14 in decimal. If we multiply 14 by our wavelength unit (12.6) we get 176.4cm, or roughly 5’9″ – the average height of humans.

The next section is a simplified representation of our Solar System – where we live. It shows the sun and nine planets, roughly representative of size. By moving the third planet up slightly it highlights that something is significant about the third planet from the sun – Earth.
The last section depicts the origin of the message itself – the Arecibo radio telescope, which is the curved structure. Underneath this, as the last two lines of the message, is another binary number. This time it’s 100101111110 (split onto two lines in the centre) and equates to 2430 in decimal. Again, using our universal ‘wavelength units’ we get 2430*12.6cm which is 30618cm – or approx 1000′, the diameter of the Arecibo radio dish.

Differences between the message sent in 1974 and the one received in 2001


(Left: what we sent in 1974 / Right: what we received in 2001)


What’s different in the Crop Formation?


After extensive analysis I have discovered nine major discrepancies between what we see in the crop field at Chilbolton and the original message that we transmitted to the stars in 1974. I shall leave any interpretation until later, but for now just highlight the differences. The exact detail of these changes couldn’t be confirmed until I actually visited the formation on the ground, in order to accurately check the binary code – reading flattened crop as a 0 and standing crop squares as 1′s.
Rather than point out the differences in order of importance or anything, I shall merely start at the top of the pattern and work downwards.


The numbers 1 to 10 appear exactly the same in the formation.


However the atomic numbers indicating the prevalent elements making up life on Earth, has an additional value inserted into the binary sequence. This is precisely added in the correct location, and in the original binary code (therefore it can’t be a mistake). Decoding from the crop formation, this additional element has an atomic number of 14 = Silicon.


Moving down, the next change is an obvious one – consisting of an extra strand on the left side of the DNA double-helix. Another, less obvious, change is in the binary coding of the number of nucleotides in DNA itself (in the center). If you look in the diagram above, I’ve highlighted the changes more accurately on the right, by using red squares and outlines to indicate which ‘digits’ have been changed in the crop formation.

There are quite significant changes to the shape of the humanoid, which becomes almost ‘alien-like’ and to the diagram of the Arecibo dish. For clarity, I’ve not bothered going over these in red because the differences are easily apparent.


Either side of what is now an ET, there are changes to both the ‘population’ figure and also the height value. The latter is now 1000 in binary, or 8. If we multiply this by the original ‘wavelength unit’ we get 8*12.6cm = 100.8cm which is roughly 3’4″ – interesting, because this would correlate with ET witness accounts.
Below this we notice additional changes to the Solar System chart. The third planet from the sun is not the only one ‘highlighted’ now. The fourth and fifth are as well. The fifth even appears to be emphasised even more, with three additional ‘pixels’.


Lastly, what was representative of the Arecibo transmitter in the original message is even more cryptic and would imply a diagrammatic version of the formation which appeared in the same field at Chilbolton last year, in 2000. This can be viewed in my database, reference uk2000ee.


The binary code for the size of the transmitter is also altered. I’ll leave the reader to work out the new value.
(Writer: Paul Vigay. Additions and correlations: Alexander Light)

What does it all mean?



Almost exactly one year prior to this message, in the same crop, this formation appeared:

This is clearly a representation of their “telescope”, as depicted in the 2001 message.


2. Gray Extraterrestrial holding a disc


Sparsholt, Hampshire, England. August 21st, 2002.
The message within the disk was deciphered using the standard 8 bit binary code known as ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange).  The cipher starts at the center of the disk and spirals outward counter-clockwise, this is also the same read pattern that a compact disc or DVD uses. 

Example of how lasers read CDs/DVDs:


Decoding the Message:

One more example:

The Message Translated:


The empty spaces represent the binary number of ZERO and the blocks represent the binary number ONE.  Using this cipher we get the following message: 
“Beware the bearers of false gifts and their broken promises.
Much pain, but still time. Believe there is good out there.
We oppose deception. Conduit closing. 0×07″ 

The binary code of 0×07 at the end of the message would produced a bell sound similar to that of an old typewriter / bell sound (Example: DING!).
Exact Construction: 
(A) Beware the bearers of FALSE gifts & their BROKEN PROMISES.
(B) Much PAIN but still time.BELIEVE.
(C) There is GOOD out there.We OPpose DECEPTION.
Conduit CLOSING (Ding!)

Is this a friendly message from benevolent beings?


The message sounds friendly enough and it’s just what we want to hear. But personally, I’m almost certain that this is a deception, and you will see why. Those who study or already are in contact with extraterrestrials (or other benevolent beings), know that our Government collaborates with a malevolent specie of grays which we know as Zeta Reticulans or Reticulans (they inhabit a binary solar system known as Zeta Reticuli).
                                   (Zeta Reticuli Stars seen in Google Sky 2011, showing a picture from 2007)
The Reticulans and the Alpha Draconians (commonly known as Reptilians) have been in contact with our Governments for ages. The Reticulans are responsible for all the abductions and mutilations (both human and animal), while the Reptilians are those behind our leaders. They are using our Governments to control and enslave our race.


If you are familiar with my work, you know that almost all my history lessons are connected to the Reptilians and their control over the human species. There are also two prominent constellations mentioned by our ancestors, and most of the times they are connected to the extraterrestrial “gods”: The Pleiades and Orion’s Belt. Even more interesting, the Illuminati are literally obsessed with these two constellations and what they represent.
(The Orion’s Belt is composed of 3 Stars. Two of them are aligned, while the third is a little offset. Image from Google Sky 2011, showing a picture from 2007).
Now back to our crop formation picture:


Notice anything strange? How about the three Stars behind the Alien? They look like Orion’s belt, but do they match its alignment?


(Credit: Wayne Herschel)
As you can see it’s a perfect match. But what does this mean? Are the alien visitors positive beings from/around the Orion Constellation or is this a malevolent trademark?


It’s not easy to draw a safe conclusion, but my instinct says this is another deception. Why would a benevolent specie want to connect a peaceful message to Orion’s Belt?
The elites know it is just a matter of time until they will have to disclose the existence of extraterrestrials. But they have one more trick in their sleeves! They plan to present those who enslaved us for generations, as our saviors: the Reticulans and the Reptilians. The greatest killers and deceivers are always presented as heroes, while the real heroes die in obscurity. Exactly the same will happen regarding the alien beings. Our enslavers will be presented as heroes, while the benevolent beings will be presented as our enemies.
Few years ago an ancient painting was found in a cave in Uzbekistan:
(Credit: Wayne Herschel)
A flying disc is clearly noticeable and bellow it an extraterrestrial being. The ET walks on a black & white floor, one of the most prominent Illuminati signs. In the foreground we can see an astronaut with broken helmet (or some kind of beast?). The astronaut/beast is holding a similar disc in his left hand. Maybe the painter had a vision about the upcoming events? Is the cave painting presenting an apocalyptic scenario?


If the character in the foreground is an astronaut with a broken helmet, then his head is being sucked out through the hole. May this represent a planet without an atmosphere? The ET in the background also seems to be wearing some kind of helmet.


We can also see sings of destruction and a large planet in the sky (about three times bigger than the Sun).
Only time will tell the truth. In the meanwhile, please be careful what you believe!
Stay balanced and loving and you will always find the true path.

      A simple method may be used to validate alien made Crop Circles. They must be distinguished by fine sculpting and contain interesting verifiable information. Three such crop images are:
      T367 – The Solar System Crop Circle.
      THE CHILBOLTON – ‘Arecibo Message’ Crop Circle.
      OPPONO ASTOS – “I oppose acts of craft and cunning” Crop Circle.
      Many of the decoratively interesting Crop Circles are anticipated to be human generated using RF radiation at the lower H2O absorption band.

    • VirusGuard

      So no students wanting to pull off a prank new about the signal we sent out to then produce these crop circles in the old way using a wooden strip and bit of rope ?

      “some 25,000 light years away and consisting of some 300,000 stars in the constellation of Hercules.”

      So the poster has answerd his own question and the reply message would take just as long to return back so we are OK for another 49,960 years

      if/when ET lands then you will know about it

      Whos to say that all these ETS are bad,
      Just like our own race there is bad and good in everyone,
      Ive been reading baout ets for sometime now,
      what gets me is everytime someone has an experience the goverment shows up,
      and ask’s what did you see, what did they say!
      not to mentione all the hollywood movies that depict them as evil beings,
      all this in my mind, sounds to me like the goverment wants us to be scared of them,
      and it seems that these ETS reached out and may no more bout our goverment then we do!

    • craig

      Great story!!!

    • cjb340

      So for ‘beings’ with higher intelligence,it makes more sense to give messages via crop circles.How about a piece of paper?
      Or why not hack the internet and give messages or something.Hell,they have the technology,right?

      And another thing,there are no ET’s from other worlds.’They’ are closer to home than you think.We live in a spectrum bigger than what we can see.The visible spectrum’s colors which we can see are Violet, Indigo,Blue,Green,Yellow,Orange,Red.There is, however, equipment that proves there is something like infra red etc.Even though we cannot see it,does not mean it is not part of the whole spectrum.

      These beings move around in our spectrum,but the part we can’t see,but there are some ways to pick it up through equipment,but that equipment will only pick up a certain part of the spectrum-whether it is build to measure infra red etc.We aren’t even sure how big the ‘invisible’ spectrum is.This is where my theory comes in about people that can see and sense ghosts and spirits etc. which is connected to what I believe-and that is the fact that aliens are nothing more than demons masquerading as ‘higher’ beings.Just as angels move between us,so do these [email protected]&kers.


      We are marching on like sheeple to the slaughter of the New World Order. Just blindly following our government and the world; not asking questions and relying on our cellphones; our iPods; our reality TV; our sports teams. Relying on EVERYTHING OTHER than the one who craves relationship with us…..

      God created you to know him personally. Psalm 139:13-14 “You created every part of me and put me together in my mother’s womb.”
      John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son so that whosoever would believe in him would not perish but have everlasting life.”

      Jesus Christ is God’s only solution for our Sin.. For the wages of sin is death. He died in our place
      Romans 5:8 “But God showed hsi great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while were still yet sinners.”

      He rose from the dead:
      1 Corinthians 15: 3-6 “Christ died for our sins.. he was buried, and he was raised from the dead on the third day…He was seen by Peter and then by the twelve apostles.. After that he was seen by more than five hundred”

      Through Jesus alone we can know God personally and experience God’s love.
      John 4: 6 “Jesus said to them, ‘ I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

      We must believe in and receive Christ.
      John 1:12 “to all who received him, he gave the right to become children of God. All they had to do was to trust and believe in Jesus to be saved.”

      We receive Christ by FAITH
      God promised eternal life to all who receive Christ
      1 John 5: 12-13 “Whoever has God’s Son has life; whoever does not have His Son, does not have life. I have written this to you who believe in the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.”

      That is wrong, the diagram showing the alien population and there physical dimensions such as height have the exact same binary code as us but THE AUTHOR OF THIS ARTICLE HAS NOT MENTIONED IT- so because of 1 discrepancy what else is incorrect in the binary translation ?
