Atlantis Discovered

Everyone of us are intrigued by the legend of Atlantis in some way or another.

To me it truly is fascinating !

And what’s more captivating, is the fact Atlantis wasn’t a fable after all, but turns out to be a true lost city. Here’s my detective work with researched accounts of “Atlantis Discovered.”

THE ATLANTIS STORY

If you’re an avid historian buff or love following the secrets of our ancient ancestors, you would of heard or read the dialogue passages of Plato himself, mentioning Atlantis.

If not, here’s a quick glimpse of PLATO words translated by Benjamin Jowett. [1]

TIMAEUS by Plato – Written 360 B.C.E

– “ Many great and wonderful deeds are recorded of your state in our histories. But one of them exceeds all the rest in greatness and valour. For these histories tell of a mighty power which unprovoked made an expedition against the whole of Europe and Asia, and to which your city put an end.

– This power came forth out of the Atlantic Ocean, for in those days the Atlantic was navigable; and there was an island situated in front of the straits which are by you called the Pillars of Heracles; the island was larger than Libya and Asia put together, and was the way to other islands, and from these you might pass to the whole of the opposite continent which surrounded the true ocean; for this sea which is within the Straits of Heracles is only a harbour, having a narrow entrance, but that other is a real sea, and the surrounding land may be most truly called a boundless continent.

– Now in this island of Atlantis there was a great and wonderful empire which had rule over the whole island and several others, and over parts of the continent, and, furthermore, the men of Atlantis had subjected the parts of Libya within the columns of Heracles as far as Egypt, and of Europe as far as Tyrrhenia.

– This vast power, gathered into one, endeavoured to subdue at a blow our country and yours and the whole of the region within the straits; and then, Solon, your country shone forth, in the excellence of her virtue and strength, among all mankind. She was pre-eminent in courage and military skill, and was the leader of the Hellenes. And when the rest fell off from her, being compelled to stand alone, after having undergone the very extremity of danger, she defeated and triumphed over the invaders, and preserved from slavery those who were not yet subjugated, and generously liberated all the rest of us who dwell within the pillars.

– 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. For which reason the sea in those parts is impassable and impenetrable, because there is a shoal of mud in the way; and this was caused by the subsidence of the island…”

ATLANTIS is indeed a story handed down from generation to generation, searching for the lost continent of Atlantis. After much speculation and storytelling, the Atlantis story has been stretched from the truth. The grand story was once believed by many, “The People of Atlantis” were a highly advanced civilization, hinted as “The Gods from the Heavens”, aka Aliens.

I even imagined they were the last of our alien ancestors from over 150,000 years ago.

BUT – closer to the truth, historian Greek Philosopher, PLATO left behind written manuscripts from over 2400 years ago. In the beginning, most historians thought of his work only as a fictional playwright. However, (throughout the millenniums) under closer evaluation by numerous scientists, it’s now believed Plato’s manuscripts are true events in history.

AND – According to geologist, Dr. Martin Pepper of HISTORY CHANNEL – ATLANTIS FOUND who, ”…sets out to prove his theory–that the true Atlantis existed on the Greek island of Santorini, and was destroyed in the biggest volcanic eruption in human history…”

Indeed, Atlantis was an advanced city (considering the timeline of over 11,000 years ago), an island with several ring-shaped land mass protecting the inner island, (the size of Manhattan) housing a grand city of architectural structures with three story buildings, showcasing high tech ( at the time) large glass windows, overlooking the scenery of the spectacular Mediterranean Sea.

Atlantis had all the luxuries of living within that barbaric century, from flushing toilets, roman type baths, oasis gardens with streamlined agriculture flourishing rich crops of wheat, Roman-type aqueducts ( apparently were supposedly invented 200 years AFTER Plato’s death) along with grand temples with massive pillars and arches. Incredibly, the Atlantis People had even mastered ship navigation, way before the Romans, Vikings or Greeks. Not only that, they had complex metals, that required a special set of skills, considered impossible during this era of time.

Plato wrote of Atlantis, handed down from his grandfather. His grandfather heard this great story from Solon who heard it from the Egyptians.

BUT – Who the heck is Solon ?

Solon was a ruler of Athens but also, a friend of Plato’s grandfather. According to Plato’s manuscript, Solon and his entourage travelled to Egypt around 560 BC. He encountered Egyptian Priests of Sais who showed Solon ancient tablets, telling the story of ATLANTIS.

As we all know, the Egyptians were masters of keeping accurate accounts of their historical past. So it’s only logical to believe Plato’s written manuscript of Atlantis, was indeed real, historical data handed down by his grandfather.

THE QUEST FOR THE TRUTH OF ATLANTIS

To further my quest for the truth, I came across the timeline of Atlantis through Chronology of Atlantis by Georgeos Díaz-Montexano, a writer, expert in ancient languages and writing of lost civilizations. In his thesis, he states :

– ” The story of Atlantis begins then: The Island and the sea around it take the name from his first son Atlas, although his real name was not Atlas (most of the original names in the narration had been translated by Solon to Greek, basing these translations on the meanings of the names, as it is explained in the Critias).

– Atlas was the Greek translation of a name meaning “the one supporting, raising, or upholding (the sky)”, the Egyptian god Schu o Shu, (who was the equivalent to the god Atlas).

– At the beginning of time, Poseidon built Cleito’s home on a high hill at the very center of the island, surrounded with five concentric rings of water and land for his wife’s protection, because – as it is spelled out – humankind did not know yet the art of navigation. The dates, as it coincides with the end of Paleolithic Period.” READ more the Chronology of Atlantis by Georgeos Díaz-Montexano.

THE OVERWHELMING EVIDENCE

It appears Georgeos doesn’t believe Atlantis sunk into the ocean from a volcano, but I would like to agree to disagree.

To understand it further, you have to ask the question,” Is the Greek island of Santorini evidence of the lost Atlantis?

I would have to strongly agree with Dr. Martin Pepper’s compelling research, that Atlantis is indeed the existing Greek island of Santorini. By the Egyptians own accounts, a terrific doomsday event happened during this period of time, where a Super Volcanic Explosion completely destroyed Atlantis and its people. The chaos sent our EARTH into a dark winter, killing crops, covering the lands with volcanic hash and clouding the light from the Sun.

It was indeed a HOLOCAUST of Biblical Proportions.

To make it clear, the Bible recorded it. A massive Flood (caused by 10 – 20 metre high Tsunamis) swept across the earth. The lands rumbled with great earthquakes. This catastrophic event caused havoc and certain doom for the Atlantis People. It’s been said the Atlantis city was swallowed by the sea, never to be seen again!

Furthering details of Atlantis, the island city was referred in the Bible as Tarshish.

Here are passages ( verses) in the Bible related to Atlantis ( Tarshish) :

Ezekiel 26:19 : “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 (Tarshish) in like manner disappeared in the depths of the sea”

Isaiah 23:1 : “The burden of Tyre. Howl, ye ships of Tarshish; for it is laid waste, so that there is no house, no entering in: from the land of Chittim it is revealed to them.”

Isaiah 23:6 : “Pass ye over to Tarshish; howl, ye inhabitants of the isle.”

Isaiah 60:9 : “Surely the islands look to me; in the lead are the ships of Tarshish, bringing your children from afar, with their silver and gold, to the honor of the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, for he has endowed you with splendor.”

Even King Solomon mentions the “Sea People of Tarshish.” In fact, this is where the famous King of Israel received his riches of gold and silver.

2 Chronicles 9:21 : “For the King’s ships went to Tarshish with the servants of Huram : every three years once came the ships of Tarshish bringing gold, and silver, ivory, and apes, and peacocks.”

To me, it’s without question Atlantis is indeed discovered, and this isn’t the first time scholars have pinpointed Atlantis as the Greek island of Santorin. This popular Greek vacation spot in the Mediterranean is the remains of a once Super Volcano causing a worldwide catastrophe in the time of the flood, completely destroying everything in its path. To be more specific, according to Wikipedia,” …this major catastrophic volcanic eruption was known as the Minoan Eruption of Thera (now called Santorini). The eruption was classified as one of the largest volcanic events on Earth in recorded history.”

NOW – just imagine the immediate impact on Atlantis, if they were sitting on top of the most explosive bomb of their century? Not to mention the global effects causing considerable damage, forcing the survivors to deal with, what we today would call a “Nuclear Fallout”, very similar to a seven-factor Super Volcano. The cataclysmic event would certainly cause complete chaos across the surface of the Mediterranean region, including Egypt, Israel, Africa, Spain, Italy and Greece.

It’s destruction would take years to recover!

I believe Dr Martin Pepper’s research of Atlantis is without question, the existing Greek island of Santorini. Atlantis isn’t a myth or a great story, but true events recorded in history. In my mind, Atlantis has finally been discovered !

Nefertiti and Black Angels

The ART piece of Nefertiti and its relationship to Black Angels by Bari Demers.

About Nefertiti:

As you see above, my art piece is the Egyptian Queen Nefertiti, Royalty of the Pharaoh Akhenaten dynasty. However, you can see a remarkable change, including her alien eyes, I cleverly crafted.

Queen Nefertiti is indeed a historical wonder, as there isn’t any trace of a tomb where she may lie today. One recent theory was believed her secret grave might have been hidden beneath the Tutankhamun’s tomb. Unfortunately, a radar scan preformed by a National Geographic team, turned up no visible trace.

The other theory is ( according to Wiki ) “…Nefertiti ruled as Neferneferuaten after her husbands death.”

Whatever may be the case, their dynasty, indeed, was in turmoil.

Nefertiti and Akhenaten ruled together from 1353 to 1336 B.C. Their New Kingdom of the 18th Dynasty turned controversial, due to the upheaval of a new religious structure, where only ONE GOD, ATUM was introduced, rejecting the earlier Egyptian beliefs of many GODS. After their deaths, the Egyptian Priests defaced all transcripts and monuments, changing back to the original worshipping of, “The Gods of the Heavens.”

Unfortunately today, archeologists are having a rough time trying to solve the mystery of “Where does the Tomb of Nefertiti lie ?”

It may be as simple as tomb robbers have already taken the riches, fading into history. Optimist I am ( sound like Yoda – lol Read also Obi-Wan) it’s my belief it’s just a matter of time before they solve the puzzle behind our mysterious Queen Nefertiti.

Graphic Art Explained:

The before image ( as you see) is the original artifact, presently on display at the Neues Museum in Berlin, Germany.

[Follow me on Instagram for more digital art displays.]

My transformation of Nefertiti took over 8 hours, into the image you see now. There are several stages of intricate artwork to transform my art of Nefertiti into the goddess for my genre science-fiction horror screenplay Black Angels.

I’m NOT a professional graphic artist but a freelance screenwriter. Even still, I do have two years of Applied Arts from Okanagan College in Kelowna , BC, Canada 🇨🇦(way back in the 70’s). Since then technology and graphic art techniques have changed drastically with the help of computers. If I were to restart my career today I would apply at the Visual College of Art and Design (VCAD) in Vancouver. Here they provide excellent courses on Visual Effects Art and Design, Graphic Design, Game Development and Design. Maybe then I would be accepted at MPC Film ( Movie Picture Film Company), also in Vancouver.

As they say,” It is what it is”, meaning I can’t change my history.

However, any ART I do is often an expression of who I am inside. Be it, writing my science-fiction stories or painting, it means so much to me personally. Maybe one day I will be as famous as Picasso, like so many dead artist are. Who knows?

The Relationship of Black Angels :

Lately, my concentration of my art is simply to promote my screenplay Black Angels. I want my audience (scifi fans) to envision my characters within my storyline.

BLACK ANGELS – “Pride had cast him down..O to Sacred Earth…a Black Evil has spread across the Lands…O to the horrors of Earth.” BMD

It’s inevitable.

Black Angels is a science-fiction horror genre based on the arrival of our Ancestors and how it changed mankind forever.

Nefertiti is a descendant of Queen Siri .

Queen Siri is believed to be one of “The Gods of the Heavens” who traveled here from Planet Sirius 5, within the Canis Major Constellation.

Even though ancient Egyptians built remarkable architectural pyramids, they still weren’t the true gods from the heavens. Even though the “Gods of the Heavens” did visit earth, they left due to mysterious reasons. I believe my screenplay has cracked the case on what really happened to our alien ancestors. Queen Siri was a descendant of the true gods, who helped the human Egyptian race to form their ancient culture. After the “Gods of the Heavens” disappeared, they tried to imitate the gods as best as they could, but still were not as effective as the gods were.

The pyramid structures of today are a good example of this.

Nefertiti was indeed a real Egyptian Queen and a legacy to the Egyptian history. Even though she was descendant of Queen Siri , only Queen Siri and her crew were responsible in transforming us human beings into what we are today. It’s my believe, theses gods were a highly advanced civilization who discovered earth over 150,000 years ago, in the time mankind was still trying to get a foothold on earth. With cross genetic manipulation, man’s evolution was fast forward into the creation of a different kind human race. Different in, if mankind continued on without altering our genetics and followed the evolutionary timeline, it would have taken man another two millions years to develop correctly.

It brings into question, “why we are the way we are today?”

Today, it’s obvious how a destructive race of human beings we can be. Our history and religion surely shows our cruel vindictive selfs. Maybe if the “Gods of the Heavens” were here today, guiding us into a better race of people, (we so far miserably failed) we may have become a more peaceful respectable human species, without war, crime and deceit.

Unfortunately, something terrible happened to our true ancestors and it’s my belief my story of Black Angels explains their fate. It may be, they’re secretly here on Earth – you never know!

I hope you enjoy my ART and stories. Please support my efforts by either purchasing my art or gifting within my stories.
