The Space Aliens Are Sending Us A Message

At least, if this was any other pattern carved into a cornfield, only visible from the air, and especially if it was in Britain, every kook for 300 miles would be showing up to explain its cosmic significance. From September 24, 2007 NBC channel 10:
Back behind the towering corn is a message that can only be seen from the air.

It is one of the most infamous symbols of hate -- a swastika -- cut into acres of cornfields in Washington Township, Mercer County.

A New Jersey State Police helicopter on a routine maintenance mission made the discovery Friday.

The swastika was located off of Hankins Road, near where similar swastikas were found in July 1998 and June 1999.
So, does it qualify as a hate message when almost no one knows that it was there? To recast this in medieval philosophy terms: "If a swastika falls in a cornfield, but there's no one there to be offended by it, does it mean anything?"
