Opposite the mysterious continent of Atlantis, there are many hypotheses,
but this would be if it never began there had been accounts of Plato,
Greek philosopher (427-347 i.Hr). In two of his dialogues he says
the following: Atlantis was an island larger than Libya and Asia
put together and they are beyond the columns of Hercules (Gibraltar
likely). With six thousand years before Solon (640-558 i.Hr), Atlantis
was a powerful kingdom with a constitution refined civilization
refined policy and political base ideal. Because of decay and desire
to conquer the Atlanteans sparked anger the gods and Atlantis was
submerged under water. Plato said that he had heard the story from
Critias, who in turn had heard from his grandfather and his grandfather
Critias heard from Solon himself one.
A similar story was known in Egypt (2000-1700 i.Hr). In a papyrus
is shipwrecked traveler tells of an Egyptian happenings that while
traveling to the mines of Pharaoh, his ship failed.
After being thrown on the shore of an island unknown to the waves, he
was pulled by a dragon in his dwelling, but you do no harm. Dragon told
that the island was canva feiiti locita 75 dragons, and that the island
was a land of wealth and desires fulfilled. But presently he no longer
lived than the rest had been burned by a shooting star. Dragon, after
the needles to ensure that it is saved by an Egyptian ship that never
said it will review the island because it will be swallowed by water.
Another story about a happy and prosperous island would be submerged
in the sea appears in the Mahabharata, the Indian epic, it can be a common
myth or more people they knew or had contact with Atlantis.
Recent historical evidence imply that in the past there had been such
an island, archaeologists trying to locate field. Greek archaeologist
S. Marinatos, found the center of a large city where houses have been
preserved with all 2 or 3 floors depicting scenes from everyday life.
Also found almost intact furniture, ceramic but no trace of human bones
and jewelry. All this was discovered on the small volcanic island of Santorini
in the Aegean. Many believe that this volcano erupted would be covered
and the mysterious submerged continent of Atlantis, because after calculations
Volcanology explosion was 4 times stronger than the volcano located between
Sumatra and Java Cracatoa. Ash spit in the explosion could cover certain
portions of the island with a layer 30 m thick.
Another hypothesis was launched by Ferdinand Fouque French volcanologist,
who discovered the island in the Aegean Tera a city buried in volcanic
ash over 3,000 years ago. Medieval authors cosiderau Atlantis as a real
place, knowing the story of Atlantis from Arab geographers. They considered
a paradise island called Atlantis lucky island, the island of seven cities
or Brendan island and were all marked on maps fourteenth and fifteenth
centuries. And psychic healer Edgar Cayce ameican (1877-1945), prophesied
that Atlantis continents will begin to rise again under the water, saying
even place in the Bahamas in 1968 or 1969. An extraordinary coincidence
makes an airline pilots in 1968 to photograph the silhouettes of buildings
in this island off Bimini, the Bahamas and underwater explorations have
revealed the seabed paved roads, cyclopean walls, pyramids and stone circles.
Edgar Cayce believed that Atlanteans controlled Atomic Energy Agency and
the principles of flight and knew that it was destroyed civilatia 3 nuclear
disaster, the last about 10,000 BC
Madame Blavatsky claimed that Atlantis was in the north and was populated
Atlanticu Atlantic highly refined lemurs descended from the "original
fourth race of mankind."
Also other occultists believe that the Atlanteans manipulated energy
crystals and the elements using highly advanced technologies based on
natural principles. It is assumed that finished were very advanced spiritually,
can communicate telepathically with a constitution based on love and tolerance
and thus keeping long spiritual empire.
