- Aug 31, 2001Hi Joe,
Never dismiss the formations on the basis of complexity....the people who
create the patterns are highly skilled , the tools they use very simple.
Glowing "balls" on video , in the vicinity of formations often surface ,
their explanations almost as numerous as the events themselves.
I suspect that even if those who had created the formations came forward and
demonstrated their skills , there would still be those who would not believe
them......simply because it is easier to associate them with the paranormal
, than accept the mundane.
