Some believe Plato created the story to illustrate his philosophical ideas of an ideal society and serve as a cautionary tale. While many claim to have located the city under the sea, its existence is still a mystery. There is no widely accepted, undisputed proof Atlantis ever existed. we are, as author Graham Hancock, a species with amnesia. We have a hard time putting together the pieces of the puzzle, and the explanations for what took place at various points throughout human history still remains, for the most part, a mystery. On top of all this confusion and lack of understanding, comes indoctrination via education. Scientific and religious dogma still dominate, and despite the fact that new discoveries are being made every single day, and more “missing links” continue to pop up in the mainstream, most of the world is still unaware of these discoveries and their implications. One of these discoveries is the idea of advanced intelligent ancient civilizations who once roamed the Earth, and the evidence to back it up.
Many believe it was a real place and should be remembered as a lesson in how ruthless greed and power cause harm, so the universe (or other entity) responds with punitive action. Those who aren’t prepared or enlightened suffer.
The Yonaguni Monument
The Yonaguni Monument is a submerged rock formation off of Japan’s Ryukyu Islands. Discovered by a diver looking for a place to observe sharks in 1987, some believe it may be the Lost Continent of Mu, Japan’s “Atlantis.”
Marine geologist Masaaki Kimura at the University of the Ryukyus believes Yonaguni Monument’s many right angles and carvings are definitely manmade. He says he has identified 10 structures, including a stadium, castle, temples, and roads, which date back to about 5,000 years ago. The architecture and carvings are similar to other ancient Asian structures, according to Kimura.
Dwarka is one of the most studied underwater discoveries in India’s Gulf of Cambay. It’s still a thriving city today, but marine archeologists have been studying its ancient underwater ruins for decades. According to ancient Hindu texts, Dwarka was a beautiful, prosperous city founded by the god Krishna. Dwarka was destroyed when the evil King Salva attacked with a flying machine, and it sank into the sea when Krishna left. Alexandria, Egypt (home of Cleopatra), Teonimanu in the Solomon Islands, and Pavlopetri, Greece, are among many well-studied sunken cities that were thought to be destroyed by earthquakes and subsequent flooding.
History is not always as it’s told, which is why critical thinking and investigation is important. According to the best estimates of some historians, the U.S. government alone classifies more than 500 million pages of documents every single year. From the teachings of the Sumerians, Mayans, ancient Egyptians, Greeks, all the way to Atlantians and more, there are facts that still remain unacknowledged when piecing together the mystery that is human history. These topics, and several examples can be found doing some simple independent research.
“Strange times are these in which we live when old and young are taught falsehoods in school. And the person that dares to tell the truth is called at once a lunatic and fool” – Plato
How Plato, and those before and after him, were able to discuss aspects of space and physics which were only recently confirmed in modern history remains a mystery – similar to what we see with Buddhism and quantum physics. So much knowledge has been shared from the fraction of documents and text we have from that era, that it is truly mind-altering to contemplate the accuracy of their thoughts when you compare it to modern day knowledge
the lost land of Atlantis. Plato is one who wrote about it, and he lived in a time closer to the period in question. He wasn’t the only one to do so, but why is it that when ancient documents and ‘influential’ figures who describe aspects of ancient society like social norms, financial structure and education, they’re taken extremely seriously, but when speaking of an advanced ancient civilizations and spirituality, they’re words are considered mythical?
According to Plato, Atlantis was inhabited by ‘earth-born’ and ‘primitive’ human beings. One of them was wooed by the god Poseidon, who interbred with the human beings, and they eventually bore five children. According to Plato, Atlantis was full of large and beautiful palaces, temples, docks, and a network of various bridges and canals that united different sections of the kingdom.
“They circumscribed each of the land zones with a wall, the outer wall being covered with brass, the middle with tin, and the inner, which encompassed the citadel, with orichalc. The citadel, on the central island, contained the palaces, temples, and other public buildings. In its center, surrounded by a wall of gold, was a sanctuary dedicated to Cleito and Poseidon.”
“The part of Atlantis facing the sea was described as lofty and precipitous, but about the central city was a plain sheltered by mountains renowned for their size, number, and beauty. The plain yielded two crops each year, in the winter being watered by rains and in the summer by immense irrigation canals, which were also used for transportation. The plain was divided into sections and in time of war each section supplied its quota of fighting men and chariots.”
Eventually, Atlantis fell due to greed, ego, and black magic. Qualities not rare among ‘men.’ It’s these qualities that still exist today which the human race, on a collective level, that we need to let go of. Plato’s description of the ‘Gods’ and how they assisted, as well as inbred with the native human populations, is nothing new. Were these Gods extraterrestrial?
To understand more about Atlantis, we must venture out and learn more about Solon, a highly respected and well known Greek Statement who lived between 638 BC – 558 BC.
As explained by Plato, Solon travels to ancient Egypt to learn more about the history of its country, and look for potential trading outposts between Greece and Egypt. It is believed that in an ancient tale, Solon wrote about the mythical city-continent of Atlantis an elusive empire that has captured the interest and imagination of historians, archeologists, adventurers, philosophers and others for more than two thousand years.
An Egyptian priest named Sonchis, Sonchis of Sais told him a great ancient civilization that had disappeared from Earth 9,000 years ago. Among many other things, it is believed that Sonchis told Solon stories about a series of ancient empires that existed on Earth, natural catastrophes that made them crumble, and great wars that had raged civilization in the past. Solon learned great information about Atlantis from Sonchis who described the incredible size and wealth of the Atlantean empire as best as he could.
Egyptian priest told Solon that there had been numerous cataclysmic natural disasters in the past, each time exterminating most of humanity. And that because of that, after the disasters humans would start building their civilizations once again from zero, having lost all of their knowledge. So the Egyptian priest tells to Solon that the Egyptians were wise to write history on the walls of their temples. Thus with ink that is waterproof they wrote on stone buildings that are fireproof and earthquake proof, in case yet another disaster happened.
