On Saturday September 5, 2009, Google trending topics showed the #1 searched trend to be Unexplained Phenomenon. On that day, Crystalinks Unexplained Phenomena file was number 6 on the first page of google. This theme was in line with my current blogs about the merge of science and science fiction. Read More
Twittering :: A TwitPic posted to Google’s Twitter account carried the message "1.12.12 126.96.36.199 15 1.18.5 188.8.131.52.14.7 20.15 21.19" - which a commenter on that image translates to "All Your o Are Belong To Us" - a reference to All Your Base. Reality is a virtual game.

Google trends explored the Crop Circle Phenomena. I guess this is why I enjoy being such an important part of the Google network - they watch the trends and follow consciousness.
The special Google logo specifically features the UFO over a field that is being harvested by what looks like a tractor. Interestingly, while the 'g' 'o' 'o' 'g' and 'e' of Google look like classic crop circles, the tractor has carved out the 'l'. At the same time the name of the logo is goog_e.gif. In the case of that logo, one of the 'o' 's was being abducted, and the image name was go_gle.gif.
Crystalinks Crop Circle File covers various years and topics, but I am not a researcher in the sense of going out in the fields and reporting the patterns. That goes to my friend Colin Andrews as well as other dedicated UK researchers.
The 2009 crop circle season, as with all others in past years, followed themes of rebirth and creation.
Some people still believe the patterns are created by extraterrestrials, while others feel they are all hoaxed. I for one don't care as I see the patterns as part of the grid, or collective unconsciousness bringing messages to the people of the planet. There are many poorly done formations, but I refer to the more intricate designs, some call landscape art.
Crop circles have a longer history than most people know. They started as simple spirals (movement of consciousness, sacred geometry) and have progressed to patterns with metaphoric content that allow the observer to remember. Their energies are another triggering mechanism, but as you know, that is all reality is about now.
Twitter users solve Google's crop circle mystery Independent - September 15, 2009
In conjunction with today's alien-themed logo, the official Google Twitter account tweeted a set of coordinates at around 4AM, as well as a link to an image of the crop circle logo. As Twitter users noted in reference to the image, those coordinates indicate the position of the town of Woking and speculation began on the significance of the town.
As residents of Woking will attest, the West Surrey town's affinity to UFOs lies in its position as the setting for the first martian landing in science fiction author H.G. Wells' War of the Worlds, and moreover the author lived there for much of his adult life. With the 143rd anniversary of Well's birth next week, Twitter users now believe they have got to the bottom of the mystery, concluding that the images (and tweet) are coded references to the upcoming anniversary. User joshgjohnson noted, 'this is a "lead-up" as was the September 5 logo', an earlier Google doodle which depicted a flying saucer apparently in the act of abducting the letter 'O'.
The timing of the reference is unusual, however, with six days until the crucial date, and further speculation has turned to its significance, with some suggesting a link to a sighting of a UFO in nearby Bagshot Heath, made on September 15, 1985. With next Monday the date of the official anniversary, internet users and science fiction fans alike will be searching for clues in the coming days to try and work out what Google is planning as a tribute to a man generally regarded as the finest science fiction writer of all time.

Mystery of Google's crop circle and UFO doodle Telegraph.co.uk - September 15, 2009
The new logo shows a flying saucer hovering over a field. The word "Google" is spelt out by a series of crop circles, but the letter "L" is missing, leading to speculation that the search company could be teasing web users ahead of the launch of a new project or service.
Clicking on the logo takes users through to a search page for "crop circles", including links to photos of the phenomenon and websites dedicated to explaining the origins of these mysterious shapes. Ten days ago, Google sparked a flurry of internet speculation when it changed its logo to show a flying saucer "abducting" the letter "O" in its tractor beam. Clicking on that doodle took users through to a page about "unexplained phenomenon".
Google has refused to comment on the reasons behind its alien-themed doodles. A spokesman for the search company joked that it would leave web users to their own UFO theories. Some have speculated that it's a publicity stunt to promote a new movie, such as District 9 or Avatar, while many more believe Google is simply responding to a surge in searches for information related to aliens and the unexplained.
