America: The New Atlantis
The occult embedded in our historical and religious roots

The biggest mistake made by Patriots and Christians, fighting for state and religious freedom, is they fail to understand and pinpoint the enemy and its occult roots and tactics.
Patriots talk about the evils of the Bilderbergers, Trilateral Commission, banksters and elites, but never touch on the occult roots of those in charge of their secret societies, including the Vatican.
Christians, on the other hand, dig their noses deep into the Bible, which is not a bad thing, but never seem to come up for air to understand how the occult has permeated their Christian roots.
The true word of God, of course, stands apart from this and should be sought and treasured more than gold and silver. But it is up to us, one by one on a continual basis, to seek His knowledge and wisdom, separating it from those false prophets who spread false doctrine in His name.
To understand the history of America and the history of traditional Christianity, it’s important to go way back, making an occult historical time line, listing key names.
This time line will bring us to date, showing how today’s religious and secular leaders are following an ancient dream subscribed to even by the founders of this country to bring about a one world government, one world order with a one world religion.
The whole story starts with Plato’s account, whether fantasy or fact, taking us back 9,000 years to the ancient island of Atlantis.
Although the history of the occult’s most important starting point is without a doubt ancient Egypt, it’s vital to start with Atlantis.
And before detailing in the next article the occult time line we will follow in this series of history lessons, it’s important to note, however, modern day occultists, including some of your major religious and political leaders. subscribe to the ancient mystery religions that some say had their beginnings in Atlantis.
And whether it exists only in their minds or whether Atlantis really existed, it is also important to remember people like Obama, Bush, Clinton and the Pope believe America is the New Atlantis, a country spearheading their goal of a one world religion and government with a one world leader.
Here are some facts about the ancient island of Atlantis and what Plato had to say taken from researchers at activemind.com and cystallinks.com :
The story of Atlantis begins quite literally with two of Plato’s dialogues, Timaeus and Critias. These accounts are the only known written records which refer specifically to a lost civilization called Atlantis. Many people believe the tale to be complete fiction, the creation of a philosopher’s imagination used to illustrate an argument. Others believe that the story was inspired by catastrophic events which may have destroyed the Minoan civilization on Crete and Thera. Still others maintain that the story is an accurate representation of a long lost and almost completely forgotten land.The greek philosopher, Plato, brought to the world, the story of the lost continent of Atlantis. His story began to unfold for him around 355 B.C. He wrote about this land called Atlantis in two of his dialogues, Timaeus and Critias, around 370 B.C. Plato stated that the continent lay in the Atlantic Ocean near the Straits of Gibraltar until its destruction 10,000 years previous.
Plato described Atlantis as alternating rings of sea and land, with a palace in the center ‘bull’s eye’.
Since Ignatius Donnelly’s “Atlantis – The Antediluvian World” came out in 1882, one of the main arguments, used by skeptics, against the existence of Atlantis has been that there is no evidence of any advanced civilization that far back in time – 9000 BC. However, practically every year new discovers are made which continue to push back the dates of the beginning of civilization. The discoveries keep showing us that ancient man was more sophisticated they previously believed.
Case in point is the “discovery” of the oldest known mummy in North America. The mummy, named the Spirit Cave man, was found on the shelves of the Nevada State Museum. Discovered in Nevada in 1940 it was originally thought to be 2000 years old. Recent radiocarbon dating has pushed its age back to 9,400 years (7,400 BC).
The most intriguing facts is that the mummy was wearing moccasins and shrouds of woven marsh plants. The weave of the shrouds indicates that it was made on a loom. If these findings turn out to be true it would mean that the there were people in North America more than 9,000 years ago with the knowledge and technology to weave cloths on looms. Such a level of sophistication again pushes back the dates of early civilization and should makes us question some long held assumptions about the primitiveness of ancient people. DNA and other tests are being undertaken.
This certainly doesn’t prove the existence of Atlantis but it does push accepted science closer to the possibility.
Timaeus and Critias, two of Plato’s dialogues, are the only existing written records which specifically refer to Atlantis. The dialogues are conversations between Socrates, Hermocrates, Timeaus, and Critias. Apparently in response to a prior talk by Socrates about ideal societies, Timeaus and Critias agree to entertain Socrates with a tale that is “not a fiction but a true story.”
The story is about the conflict between the ancient Athenians and the Atlantians 9000 years before Plato’s time. Knowledge of the distant past apparently forgotten to the Athenians of Plato’s day, the story of Atlantis was conveyed to Solon by Egyptian priests. Solon passed the tale to Dropides, the great-grandfather of Critias. Critias learned of it from his grandfather also named Critias, son of Dropides.
The dialogues that follow were written by Plato some time around 360 BC and are English translations by Benjamin Jowett:
Note: The pages and paragraphs of the dialogues are a convenience created by myself. They are not a part of the originals but are intended to make load times relatively short and to make reading on computer monitors less of a strain.
Serves only as a brief introduction to Atlantis, a preface. The majority of the writing actually deals with a description of the creation of the world and explanation of natural phenomena. Page 2 is the only part of Timaeus which references and describes Atlantis.
Cast of Characters
All of the men, except for Timaeus, who take part in or are mentioned in Timaeus and Critias are known to have actually existed in ancient Greece. Records of their lives and deeds have been recorded in other writings from the time period.
Note: There are 2 people named Critias related to the story of Atlantis and this can lead to some confusion. There is the Critias who actually takes part in the dialogues. He is the one who tells the story of Atlantis to Socrates. Then there is Critias who was the grandfather of the Critias of the dialogues. This elder Critias told the story of Atlantis to his grandson, Critias, who then conveyed the story to Socrates in the dialogues.
Those who actually take part in the dialogues:
# Timaeus – there is no historical record of him.
# Critias – Plato’s great grandfather.
# Socrates – Plato’s mentor and teacher. He was condemned to death by authorities in Athens for “corrupting the moral of Athenian youth”; He lived from 469 to 399 BC.
# Hermocrates – statesman and soldier from Syracuse.
Those mentioned in the dialogues:
# Solon – Athenian traveler, poet, and lawgiver who lived from approximately 638-559 BC. According to Plato it was he who learned of the story of Atlantis from an Egyptian priest.
# Dropides – Critias’ great grandfather who was told the story of Atlantis by Solon, a distant relative and close friend.
# Critias – Son of Dropides and grandfather of the Critias who takes part in the dialogues. It was he who related the story of Atlantis to the Critias of the dialogues.
Below you’ll find an outline of the details about Atlantis – the island and its people – provided by Plato in Timaeus and Critias.
o Based in the Atlantic Ocean – Opposite the Pillars of Heracles* (Straits of Gibraltar)
o The Atlantic was then navigable
o Larger than Libya and Asia combined
o From Atlantis you could reach other islands and then a true continent
*Note: Throughout Atlantis literature (there have been thousands of books written on the subject) you will see references to the Pillars of Heracles and Pillars of Hercules. Heracles and Hercules are variations on the spelling and pronunciation of the same person. He was the heroic son of Zeus and Alcmene who possessed superior strength.
Note: The unit of measurement given in translation of Timaeus and Critias is typically the stade or stadia. The conversion is:
1 stade = 607 ft or 185 meters (mile = 5280 feet so 1 stade = .11 mile)
Canal From Sea
o Canal 300′ wide, 100′ deep
o 50 stades from the sea was a hill where the rings of Sea and Land were built (5.5 miles)
o Next ring of water was 1 stade – 600′
o Center land was 5 stades in diameter – 3000′ (.5 miles)
o Surrounded on both sides by a wall covered with orichalcum
o Next set of water / land rings were 2 stades in width – 1200′
o Surrounded on both sides by a wall covered with tin
o Ring closest to sea and its internal land both 3 stades in width – 1800′
o Surrounded on both sides by a wall covered with brass
o Contained horse racing track
o Wall which circled the outer ring at a distance of 50 stades (11 miles in diameter)
o Bridges were 100 feet wide (a sixth of a stadia)
o Towers and gates on the bridges
o Guarded at either end
o Oblong, 3000 stadia long, 1000 stadia wide (330 miles long and 110 miles wide)
o Open to the sea on the south (where the canal exited to the sea)
o Surrounded by mountains to the north
Ditch around the Plain
o 100 feet deep
o 1 stade wide
o 10,000 stade long (surrounding the whole plain) (1100 miles long)
o Plain consisted of 10 stade square lots – 1.1 mile x 1.1 mile
+ 1.1 miles = 5808 ft there we get 33,732,864 sq. ft = 774.4 acres
+ acre = 43560 sq. ft or 4840 sq. yd.
+ for total of 60,000
# total acres = 46,464,000
o Each lot supplied
+ 1/6 of a war chariot
+ 2 horses and riders
+ one pair of chariot horses, a horseman, and a charioteer
+ 2 heavily armed soldiers
+ 2 slingers
+ 3 stone shooters
+ 3 javelin men
+ 4 sailors (for fleet of 1200 ships)
o 5 sets of Twins – Atlas was first King
o Fruits hard to store but providing drink, food & oil
o They governed other land into Egypt and Tyrrhenia
o 2 harvests – one from winter rains – one from summer irrigation
o Orichalc, a metal unknown to Plato was mined in quantities – 2nd in value to gold
o Abundant timber, elephants, marshes, swamps, rivers, mountains, plains
o Hot and cold springs
o Stone was white, black, and yellow – stone was excavated from center island and land rings to form covered docking areas
The prevailing theories about Atlantis are:
o It’s Fiction
o It’s an exaggeration based on the fall of the Minoan civilization and the destruction of the island Thera
o It was Real
Below you’ll find a brief summary of each of the theories as well as key points either for or against the theory. Although many people in each camp consider the case closed there is no definitive proof for any theory. In the case of the “It’s Fiction” theory it is essentially impossible to definitively prove that it was fiction.
This is the easiest answer – Atlantis is fiction. It was made up to suit the purposes of Plato’s dialogues.
o Nothing to prove. Timaeus and Critias are simply stories.
o It is stated several times within the dialogues that the story is true
o Parts about the impassable sea and the true continent on the other side of Atlantis tend to indicate a more detailed knowledge that a fictional story
Thera & The Minoan Civilization
There are some compelling similarites between the destruction of Thera and the destruction of Atlantis…..
o The island of Thera, a volcanic island, was destroyed around 1500 BC by an explosion which caused more than half of the island to sink into the sea.
o Artifacts found on the island indicate a sophisticated culture, probably part of the Minoan Civilization.
o There is evidence pointing to trade between the Minoans and Egyptians. The Egyptians would certainly have been aware of the destruction or at least the tremedous damage done to one of their trading partners.
o We’ll examine this possibility in more detail in upcoming issues of Enigma.
o Proponents of this theory claim that Plato’s date of 9000 years ago should really have been 900 years ago: somewhere along the line either Solon or Plato made a mistake. If the story was 900 years ago it would place Atlantis in the time frame of the Minoan civilization on Crete and Thera. Conveniently overlooked in this thinking is that in Timaeus the priest tells Solon that ancient Athens and Atlantis preceeded Egypt by a thousand years. Egypt however existed and was known to have existed since long before 1500 BC, the time of Crete and Thera. The times just don’t add up unless you assume the Egyptian priest was ignorant of his own recorded history.
o Plato says it’s a true story.
o We’ll examine this possibility in more detail in upcoming issues of Enigma.
o There are no other records of such a civlization existing.
o Current archaeological evidence does not support the premise that such sophisticated civilizations existed around 9000 BC anywhere in the world.

The Capitol of Atlantis
Timaeus begins with an introduction, followed by an account of the creations and structure of the universe and ancient civilizations. In the introduction, Socrates muses on the perfect society (as described in Plato’s Republic) and wonders if he and his guests could come up with a story which puts this society into action. Critias mentions an allegedly historical tale that he would make the perfect example, and follows up by describing Atlantis in the Critias. In his account, ancient Athens represents the “perfect society,” and Atlantis, its opponent, represents the opposite of the “perfect” traits described in the Republic. Critias claims that his account of ancient Athens and Atlantis stems from a visit to Egypt by the Athenian lawgiver Solon in the 6th century BC. In Egypt, Solon met Sonchis, a priest of Thebes, who translated the history of ancient Athens and Atlantis, recorded on pillars in Egyptian hieroglyphs, into Greek.
According to Critias, the Hellenic gods of old divided the land so that each god might own a lot; Poseidon was appropriately, and to his liking, bequeathed the island of Atlantis. The island was larger than Libya and Asia Minor combined, but has since been sunk by an earthquake and became an impassable mud shoal, inhibiting travel between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. The Egyptians described Atlantis as an island approximately 700 km across, comprising mostly mountains in the northern portions and along the shore, and encompassing a great plain of an oblong shape in the south “extending in one direction three thousand stadia [about 600 km], but across the center inland it was two thousand stadia [about 400 km].”
Fifty stadia inland from the middle of the southern coast was a “mountain not very high on any side.” Here lived a native woman with whom Poseidon fell in love and who bore him five pairs of male twins.
The eldest of these, Atlas, was made rightful king of the entire island and the ocean (now the Atlantic Ocean), and was given the mountain of his birth and the surrounding area as his fiefdom. Atlas’s twin Gadeirus or Eumelus in Greek, was given the easternmost portion of the island which also lay at its northern extreme facing Gades, a town in southern Spain.
The other four pairs of twins – Ampheres and Evaemon, Mneseus and Autochthon, Elasippus and Mestor, and Azaes (possibly the Azores) and Diaprepes – “were the inhabitants and rulers of divers islands in the open sea.”
Poseidon carved the inland mountain where his love dwelt into a palace and enclosed it with three circular moats of increasing width, varying from one to three stadia and separated by rings of land proportional in size. The Atlanteans then built bridges northward from the mountain, making a route to the rest of the island. They dug a great canal to the sea, and alongside the bridges carved tunnels into the rings of rock so that ships could pass into the city around the mountain; they carved docks from the rock walls of the moats. Every passage to the city was guarded by gates and towers, and a wall surrounded each of the city’s rings. The walls were constructed of red, white and black rock quarried from the moats, and were covered with brass, tin and orichalcum, respectively.
According to Critias, 9,000 years before his lifetime, a war took place between those outside the Pillars of Hercules and those who dwelt within them.
The Atlanteans had conquered the Mediterranean as far east as Egypt and the continent into Tyrrhenia, and subjected its people to slavery. The Athenians led an alliance of resistors against the Atlantean empire and as the alliance disintegrated, prevailed alone against the empire, liberating the occupied lands. “But afterwards there occurred violent earthquakes and floods; and in a single day and night of misfortune all your warlike men in a body sank into the earth, and the island of Atlantis in like manner disappeared in the depths of the sea.” Plato claimed it was somewhere outside the Pillars of Hercules, now known as the Strait of Gibraltar.
Modern scholars generally regard Plato’s description of Atlantis as an invention, though its kernel may have been formed from hazy memories of historical events such as the Thera eruption. However, in antiquity, there were a few philosophers, geographers, and historians who believed that Atlantis was real.
For instance, the philosopher Crantor, a student of Plato’s student Xenocrates, tried to find proof of Atlantis’ existence. For his opinions we are dependent on Proclus’ commentary on the Timaeus, written in the 5th century AD. Proclus reports that Crantor said he had travelled to Egypt and seen the same columns on which Plato had seen the history of Atlantis, written in hieroglyphic characters.
Plato’s account of Atlantis may have also inspired parodic imitation: writing only a few decades after the Timaeus and Critias, the historian Theopompus of Chios wrote of a land beyond the ocean known as “Meropis.” This description was included in Book 8 of his voluminous Philippica, which contains a dialogue between King Midas and Silenus, a companion of Dionysus. Silenus describes the Meropids, a race of men who grow to twice normal size, and inhabit two cities on the island of Meropis: Eusebes (“Pious-town”) and “Machimos” (“Fighting-town”). Hans-Gknther Nesselrath has argued that these and other details of Silenus’ story are meant as imitation and exaggeration of the Atlantis story, for the purpose of exposing Plato’s ideas to ridicule.
Zoticus, a Neoplatonist philosopher of the 3rd century AD, wrote an epic poem based on Plato’s account of Atlantis.
The 4th century AD historian Ammianus Marcellinus, relying on a lost work by Timagenes, a historian writing in the 1st century BC, writes that the Druids of Gaul said that part of the inhabitants of Gaul had migrated there from distant islands. Ammianus’ testimony has been understood by some as a claim that when Atlantis sunk into the sea, its inhabitants fled to western Europe; but Ammianus in fact says that the Drasidae (Druids) recall that a part of the population is indigenous but others also migrated in from islands and lands beyond the Rhine” (Res Gestae 15.9), an indication that the immigrants came to Gaul from the north and east, not from the Atlantic Ocean.
Another passage from Proclus’ 5th century AD commentary on the Timaeus gives a description of the geography of Atlantis: “That an island of such nature and size once existed is evident from what is said by certain authors who investigated the things around the outer sea. For according to them, there were seven islands in that sea in their time, sacred to Persephone, and also three others of enormous size, one of which was sacred to Pluto, another to Ammon, and another one between them to Poseidon, the extent of which was a thousand stadia; and the inhabitants of it they add preserved the remembrance from their ancestors of the immeasurably large island of Atlantis which had really existed there and which for many ages had reigned over all islands in the Atlantic sea and which itself had like-wise been sacred to Poseidon. Now these things Marcellus has written in his Aethiopica”.
However, Heinz Gunther Nesselrath argues that this Marcellus, who is otherwise unknown, is probably not a historian but a novelist.
An important Greek festival of Pallas Athene, the Panathenaea was dated from the days of king Theseus. It consisted of a solemn procession to the Acropolis in which a peplos was carried to the goddess, for she had once saved the city, gaining victory over the nation of Poseidon, that is, the Atlanteans. As Lewis Spence comments, this cult was in existence already 125 years before Plato, which means that the story could not be invented by him.
The historian Ammianus Marcellinus wrote that “the intelligentsia of Alexandria considered the destruction of Atlantis a historical fact, described a class of earthquakes that suddenly, by a violent motion, opened up huge mouths and so swallowed up portions of the earth, as once in the Atlantic Ocean a large island was swallowed up. Diodorus Siculus recorded that the Atlanteans did not know the fruits of Ceres. In fact, Old World cereals were unknown to American Indians. Pausanias called this island “Satyrides,” referring to the Atlantes and those who profess to know the measurements of the earth.
He states that far west of the Ocean there lies a group of islands whose inhabitants are red-skinned and whose hair is like that of the horse. (Christopher Columbus described the Indians similarly.) A fragmentary work of Theophrastus of Lesbos tells about the colonies of Atlantis in the sea. Hesiod wrote that the garden of the Hesperides was on an island in the sea where the sun sets.
Pliny the Elder recorded that this land was 12,000 km distant from Cadiz, and Uba, a Numidian king intended to establish a stock farm of purple Murex there. Diodorus Siculus declares that the ancient Phoenicians and Etruscans knew of an enormous island outside the Pillars of Heracles. He describes it as the climate is very mild, fruits and vegetables grow ripe throughout the year. There are huge mountains covered with large forests, and wide, irrigable plains with navigable rivers. Scylax of Caryanda gives similar account.
Marcellus claims that the survivors of the sinking Atlantis migrated to Western Europe. Timagenes tells almost the same, citing the Druids of Gaul as his sources. He tries to classify the Gallic tribes according to their origins and tells of one of these claiming that they were colonists who came there from a remote island.
Theopompus of Chios, a Greek historian called this land beyond the ocean as “Meropis”. The dialogue between King Midas and the wise Silenus mentions the Meropids, the first men with huge cities of gold and silver. Silenus knows that besides the well-known portions of the world there is another, unknown, of incredible immensity, where immeasurably vast blooming meadows and pastures feed herds of various, huge and mighty beasts. Claudius Aelianus cites Theopompus, knowing of the existence of the huge island out in the Atlantic as a continuing tradition among the Phoenicians or Carthaginians of Cadiz.
Perhaps the Byzantine friar Cosmas Indicopleustes understood Plato better than the ancient and modern “Aristotelians”, says Merezhkovsky.
In his Topographia Christiana he included a chart of the (flat) world: it showed an inner continent, a compact mainland surrounded by sea, and this was surrounded by an outer ring-shaped continent, with the inscription, “The earth beyond the Ocean, where men lived before the Flood.” The Garden of Eden is placed in the eastern end of this continent.
Atlantean Fire Crystals
Edgar Cayce’s Channelings
The Great Crystal
Edgar Cayce first mentioned Atlantis in a life reading given in 1923, and later gave its geographical location as the Caribbean, and proposed that Atlantis was an ancient, now-submerged, highly-evolved civilization which had ships and aircraft powered by a mysterious form of energy crystal. He also predicted that parts of Atlantis would rise in 1969. The Bimini Road, a submarine geological formation just off North Bimini Island, discovered in 1968, has been claimed by some to be evidence of the lost civilization (among many other things) and is still being explored today.
Before the time of Eratosthenes about 250 BC, ancient Greek writers located the Pillars of Hercules on the Strait of Sicily. This changed with Alexander the Great’s eastward expansion and the Pillars were moved by Eratosthenes to Gibraltar. This evidence has been cited in some Atlantis theories, notably in Sergio Frau’s work.
Thule, in the Greek and Roman mythologies, is a place, usually an island, in the far north, perhaps Scandinavia. It was first mentioned by the Greek geographer and explorer Pytheas of Massalia (present-day Marseille) in the 4th century BC. Pytheas claimed that Thule was six days north of Britain, and that the midsummer sun never set there. Thule is sometimes seen to have some commonality with Atlantis.
As continental drift became better understood and accepted during the 1950s, most “Lost Continent” theories of Atlantis were shown to be impossible. In response, some recent theories propose that elements of Plato’s story were derived from earlier myths.
Atlantis existed almost 250,000 years from its first age to its final days, the last of its islands going beneath the seas around 9,000 years ago. This means that if you reincarnated into the Earth realms during the past quarter million years, the odds are high that you lived in Atlantis for one or more lifetimes. Since the culture of Atlantis existed through nearly 10 grand cycles of the precession of the equinoxes, you may have spent literally hundreds of lives in Atlantis or its colonizes.
Cycles repeat, and the same stellar energies that governed the last days of Atlantis have come full cycle again. Atlantean souls began returning to Earth during the past century in numbers significant enough to affect the development of many nations on Earth–especially technological nations such as Germany, the United States, England, and Russia. Atlanteans embarked on a project that took more than 100 of our current years to complete. Far from their Atlantean homelands in a region they knew to be safe from the Earth changes– they built a time capsule–a message to help future humans understand what had happened. They knew the mistakes they had made for themselves at that time. But it was too late to stop the destruction, for the greater Earth changes had already come, destroying their homelands and the great civilizations they had built.
They knew earth changes would surely happen again, as the precession reached its apex once more, 13,000 years hence. They built their time capsule to last–to warn future generations in time to avoid the mistakes the Atlanteans made, and save civilization from destruction. The Atlantean time capsule was not merely a building but a “machine” of sorts–and instrument which could foretell when the same fate would come to those of the future– the people of the 20th century. This is the Great Pyramid in Giza, Egypt.
The Great Pyramid was constructed over 12,500 years ago. It is an Atlantean instrument conceived by Ra, a priest from the land of Dar, and engineered by Thoth (Hermes) from Atlantis. Construction was carried out by a work force of native Egyptians and the black races of people known as the Nubians and Zuleans who occupied the east and west banks of the southern Nile River.
If the cycle is to repeat –the changes will come swiftly and without warning. In Atlantis 95% of the population was lost to the waters.
Going back in time some 225,000 years-as time is reckoned from the present–we meet the entity Om, the great leader of an ancient race known as At-el, preparing to meet not only his own destiny but the destiny of the world. Living in the region we now know as Tibet, the At-el are primitive by our standards. They are a brave and noble culture of hunter-gathers, small in stature, compared to the race of giants who dominate the Earth at this time.
The At-el have skin the color of bronze, with deep penetrating eyes, that are black or gray. They are similar in appearance to the Native Americans that lived in the Mississippi basin at the turn of our 18th century. They stand, on average, only about 5 and 1/2 feet tall, though their heads are larger, even, than ours today.
The At-el people lived in small family clans that banded together, making up the single tribe. These clans have evolved directly from soul groups–entities who are reincarnated lifetime after lifetime into the same families–though to be sure, new souls do enter, so the clans continue to grow in size, over time, and new clans are often created.
During this time in Earth’s history, the consciousness of humanity is much different than ours today. Where today our individual memories are built up in us from birth, such is not the case with At-el, for they are a group-memory race of people. Each member of each At-el clan is deeply connected to their specific soul group incarnate. The total memories of the clan are accessible to each individual in the clan, and is from birth. As each clan member experiences new things, these are added– or remembered –within the collective consciousness of the clan.
Individual thought is also present in the At-el people, but only as it interacts with their share of memories. The group-memory of each clan flows and swells constantly – each experience is accessible to all, and owned by no one.
Now, the collective memories of one clan–or soul group– of the At-el can not be felt or seen by those in other clans, except for the rare individual who has the gift of this unusual ability. The entity Om is such a person, and as such, he is considered to be a leader of the people. With his great knowledge and memory of all the clans, he may speak for the tribe to mother Earth, and to all the elements, which the At-el see as Gods.
The Festival of Fire
It is during the festival dedicated to the element fire– on the 10th full moon in the 13 lunar months of the At-el year – that Om will experience something like no other At-el, indeed, like no other entity on Earth, has ever experienced at a festival, or anywhere else for that matter. At festival time, the collective joyful memories are often induced amongst clan members, not unlike our experience of sharing an album of family pictures with friends and family, laughing together and remembering the good times had by all. The whole tribe congregates at festival time, creating, for once, a new experience of love and joy that can be shared by everyone.
For the ‘celebration of fire’, the largest hut –the At-el temple–is set up to receive the congregation, and a large stone altar is placed in the center. Wood and crushed stones have been prepared the previous day, and are now placed into the stone basin at the foot of the altar and lit.
The leader, Om, enters the altar area, and begins his dancing and chanting. It is in this manner that Om usually leads the tribe to dance and chant and after some time signals the rest to join with him. As the chanting increases in power, Om begins to receive visions from the ‘collective memories’ of all the clans present. When Om receives these memories at the festival, he is able to pass them on to others– his visions become their visions. This is taught by the At-el’s to be a gift from their Gods, the great elements.
At this particular festival of fire, Om dances and chants, and as the others join in, the air is thick with the images and joyful memories that flow from clan to clan throughout the festival circle, and a great happiness comes over all of those in attendance.
For even when an At-el memory contains negative images, it is always interpreted as positive in the end. Even in facing death, a clan member is seen to be overcoming obstacles through his or her strength, bravery, or stealth. And back through the generations of the clans, each act is remembered with fierce pride and good feelings.
As the images begin to fade this time, something startling happens. Om begins to receive new memories–memories foreign to him and all of the clan of At-el. Those who share his thought cry out, because they do not understand what they are seeing. The joyous dancing and chanting stops abruptly. These visions are not from the group memories at all! These are images of places and people never seen before – these are not of the At-el.
Nothing like this has ever happened before, and for once, the At-el are afraid. Some of the people run from the temple. Others stand motionless, tears running down their faces. Many look to Om for guidance. Where had these visions come from? What are they? Om, does not know, but he is not afraid. His strength clams the people who witness it, and this spread– as group-memory–to the rest of the clan’s people. And one by one those who remained, slowly back away from Om and out of the temple.
After the festival, the tribe goes on with daily life as if nothing has occurred. The memory of what happened has been stored away in the clan’s consciousness – safely out of mind until invoked at some future festival, when once again that which is not of one’s own soul group may be shared by all. Only Om is left with the strange vision still lingering in his mind. And like all wise leaders, he is thoughtful, and waits.
The Festival of Air
One lunar cycle having passed, the next festival commences– the festival of air. As he has many times before, Om begins the celebration by chanting and dancing. The group-memories come to him, as always, and the others begin to experience the shared imagery of the tribe. This time, however–just as it occurred during the festival of Fire–images of strange people, their lands, and their homes fill the minds of the At-el clans people. As the vision unfolds, they recognize Om in the foreign place, and witness the strange, tall people bowing down to him–a symbol of respect for his power– and the fear that had been presented in the clans is gone.
With this experience, a new seed of consciousness has evolved, not only in At-el, but in all the races of the world. For time is not linear, but circular; memory is not only a link to the past, but to the future as well. From this point forward, each clan member would be able to recall events yet to come–through Om’s connection–and thereby become part of his new memory. Om does not understand entirely what is occurring, but now that he has seen himself in the images, he knows that what he has seen is the future, not an alternate past, and that he must be patient to learn what to do next. It is his job to lead his people forward, to meet the strangers in the dream visions,and so meet with his destiny.
The temple is prepared for the water celebration, and a large stone bowl is placed in the center of the hut. Water from the mountain streams has been placed in the basin, and the ceremonial ladles, carved of wood, rests along side it. From these ladles, each clan member will drink to the element water, sharing in its bounty.
Om enters the altar and begins his dance and chant. A strange look comes over him, and all those in attendance watch him with curiosity. No one joins in. As Om continues to dance, his chanting voice filling the temple, images unlike any he has seen before once again flood his mind. Quiet and motionless, all of the people of the clans of At-el share his sight. Om sees some of the tall, almost giant people of his two previous visions, and a strange building that seems to move and sway on a great body of water such as never been witnessed by the At-el.
Om is present once again, and he lives in the floating building with the giant people. There are many At-el present too. Abruptly, the vision changes and the large entity wearing clothing totally foreign in style speaks to Om. He says that Om is now about to embark on a now marvelous quest. Once completed, his journey will enable all of the world to enter an age of joyful coexistence, and the great elements will be in harmony with all tribes everywhere.
The entity in Om’s vision instructs him to take half the At-el tribe—1,555 clans people—on a journey that will lead to a new land located in the middle of a great sea. In order to do this, however, they must first travel far into the west, to an unknown land called Zu.
There they are to meet a strange-looking people who sometimes live in even stranger-looking buildings that move upon the water. Upon arriving in Zu, situated on the coast of what we now call the Arabian Sea, Om will meet the leader of the Zu people, and from there he and the At-el who traveled with him will be guided to the new land.
Om and his followers leave on the next lunar cycle, at the time of the festival of Earth. It is the height of the celebration, but Om is not presiding. The evolution of consciousness has already begun, and there are now others to lead the chanting and dancing for those that are left behind. It is understood that this parting is joyous, and the clans that are staying behind wish well to the ones who are going away. The travelers set out of their homeland on foot, under a full moon. Years will pass before they reach their destination.
The summer zenith and a bright, full moon usher Om, and his surviving followers into the foreign land they seek. At the coast, they are met by the Zulean people of the visions. They are a tall, black-skinned people, with high foreheads, deeply recessed penetrating brown eyes, and large lips. The colossal Olmecs statues–still found in the world today–closely resemble the ancient race of Zu.
Although the Zu are at first fearful of the strange visitors, Om and the other At-el clans people are quickly welcomed into the Zu culture. The leader of the Zu, called Un Towee, has experienced a prophecy describing Om and his followers, and instructs him to aid them when they arrived.
The Zu are a kind and loving, family-oriented people, who live by the sea in a large colony. Beautiful gardens dot the landscape, and children everywhere are engaged in a game using long, thin stick and a hard ball made for the sap of large tress found in the surrounding hillsides. The sport is to hit the ball into a ring fixed on a pole at the center of each game site. Compared to the harsh terrain of the At-el homeland, this is a lush land.
Om and Un Towee find between themselves and instant kinship, and plans are quickly made for the journey ahead. While six full cycles of the moon come and go, the Zu–experienced seafarers and boat builders–construct a large sailing vessel for Om and his tribe. The ship, a yawl by today’s definition, can carry all of Om’s people, plus a contingency of 13 Zuleans–one for each month of the year. These 13 are chosen to accompany the At-el as navigators and sailors, and to discover with them this still unknown New World.
On the first new moon, at the exact moment the darken moon reaches its highest point in the sky, Om and his shipmates set sail for the narrow body of water we now call the Red Sea. At this point, it must be understood that the world of Om’s time is geographically much different than our own. From the Red Sea, it is possible to navigate directly into what we call the Mediterranean, and then on into the great Atlantic Ocean, where the land that is the final destination of his vision inspired quest lies waiting.
Six lunar months after their departure, the explorers pass into thestraits, today called Gibraltar, and head due west. With the sun rising behind the ship in the morning of the next full moon, theZulean lookout sights land and calls out to those down below.
Om and his people crowd to the railing to behold the distant shoreof a mighty continent. Today all that remains of this great land are the tiny islands we know as the Azores.When the ship reaches its destination and drops anchor some 500 yards from the shore, all aboard–Zuleans and At-el alike–await the next high tide so that they may disembark. They prepare themselves for landing in this new uncharted land bypraying, and by purifying themselves with smoke and oil-baths.
At high tide, they put shore in long boats. On the beach, they conduct a ceremony in reverse to the element water; and as Om and his people are from the land of the At-al, they name this new land At-el-an.
Ec-Kar of Atlantis
Ec-Kar is a fifth-level initiate, High Priest of the Educational Presidium, and teacher at the most famous University of Atlantis – Ata-Ruumn. It located on the coast of the city of Poseidia. Poseidia is one of the five large island kingdoms of Atlantis. It is known for its riches, culture, and temples of wisdom. Thousands arrive daily to but, sell, and trade goods, and to attend cultural activities.
He is a man in his eighteenth cycle – each cycle consists of seven years. He is short for Atlantean, standing at 5 feet 6 inches tall, has bronze colored skin, balding head, ad a long white beard. He wears white robes and papyrus-reed sandals. He is telepathic and can manifest before his students at will.
The ‘Hall of Ages’ where Ec-kar has taught his students about their Atlantean heritage and origins.
In the ‘Hall of Sciences’ – Ec-kar has taught collective thought.
Lesson three: Lemuria
Ec-kar’s students consider Lemuria their Motherland. He teaches them that it was in Lemuria that the colonization of Atlantis first began. The Lemurians were like thought projections, not physically solid. It made them higher in frequency and closer to the Creator’s energy vibration level. Their souls came to Earth to experience the physical vibration. They were large in stature, about nine feet tall. Their skin had an aqua cast changing from blue to green in conjunction with two seasonal cycles each year. Their faces were elongated and oval. Their eyes were large with lids running vertically. The texture of their skin was slightly scaly. They breathed through their skin, not lungs. The temperature of the planet, the atmosphere, the light and the orbits of the other planets were much different then. The first Lemurians were androgynous, neither male nor female.
It all began with the projection of 144 soul groups – representing the projection of 33 million souls. Some of the souls came from the ‘Red Planet’.
Some groups chose water, some the plant, mineral, or animal kingdoms. The greater experiments were with the animal kingdom as this realm allowed for longer life spans and greater mobility. The Earth had giants and elves. Some came from the stars and projected into physical form, Pleiades and Sirius. They came in space craft different than those of the Atlanteans, called Valix.
