Crop Circles have many messages based on various interpretations and at first glance this one seemed to look like some kind of a timeline shown with prominent I-Ching symbolism ... One of the most interesting and accurate interpretations is that it's a graphical representation of Euler's Identity ... shared by Perceval from the Daily Grail ...
When I saw the photos of the Wilton Windmill Crop Circle, reported on 22nd May 2010, I was immediately struck by the possibility of a message encoded in 8-bit binary.
The result was this:
It looked like some kind of equation, and when I looked it up, Google asked if I meant: e^(i)pi)1=0, for which the top result was Euler's identity: eiπ+1=0. This has been called "the most beautiful theorem in mathematics". No surprise that it should turn up in a crop circle then!
Now, I'm not much of a mathematician, so I don't know anything about the odd notation of the formula as expressed in the crop circle, but I assumed that, for the circle-maker, it could be a way to get around the limitations of ASCII text.
One thing bothered me though, and that was the inclusion of the anomalous 'h' in the message/formula. Certainly, with the absent '+', it made up the number of characters to twelve, which would make the crop circle easier to produce on the ground and more windmill-like, as well as referencing a highly symbolic number.
More significantly though, with the adjacent 'i', it reads 'hi' - an embedded message from the maker perhaps? It was only when James Gilliland suggested in this Facebook thread that 'h' could be a reference to the Planck constant, taking us from the world of maths into the world of physics, that I realised what could be the full meaning of the embedded message.
Could the makers have left a 'Planck' in the design as a subtle joke on all the croppies who might pronounce this a 'genuine' crop circle as opposed to a circle made with a plank ?! ... :~)

The Pi Crop Circle of 2008 represented Pi to the tenth decimal graphically ... :)
Last season we saw another graphical representation of Pi (22/7) on the 24th of May 2009 ... :)
