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 !

We are Illogical 

The Okanagan- My Home
Today, as I write, ‘We are illogical’, I have arrived in the sunny Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, Canada 🇨🇦. Throughout the fall and winter months you’ll find me feverishly writing science-fiction thrillers and assorted screenplays, such as BLACK ANGELS (ready for release) and short stories, like Android Alisha. But during the months of June, July and August, you’ll find me at my summer home, partaking in outdoor activities within our Canadian oasis, well known by celebrities across North American. In fact, as we speak, there’s a couple of filming crews setting up in Kelowna, BC. This may be the summer home for the rich and famous, but to me, it’s simply where I was raised as a kid. It’s indeed my home. For Canada 150 or your next vacation I highly recommend you take a visit to the sunny Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, Canada 🇨🇦.

Black Angels by Bari Demers
WE ARE ILLOGICAL 

My creative art of writing can be referred to as the ‘Vincent Van Gogh art-impressionist-style’, left with secret hidden messages throughout each paragraph. Writing is an expression from my inner soul, hoping to make a difference to my readers, as they begin to explore the plots and twists behind my stories.

Throughout my life I have questioned our reality.  The how and why of our very existence is indeed intriguing, leading me to believe the possibilities of a higher intelligence far surpassing our own. I like to refer them as our ancestral GODS, who have left behind visible landmarks and scriptural clues. It’s even speculated the GODS of the Heavens may have altered our DNA and evolutionary timeline, making us who were are today. 

With the ways of our human race, it frustrates me to no end, “Why do we react in such an illogical behavioural pattern, causing physical harm to others, over our proposed belief in religion and/or power ?” 

As Mr Spock would say,” “May I say that I have not thoroughly enjoyed serving with humans? I find their illogic and foolish emotions a constant irritant.” 

Writing is my passion and speaks out to our foolish ways, thinking we have complete control over everything. Where, in reality, we are nothing more then a small dot in the evolutionary timeline, waiting to be exterminated by the forces of nature, much more powerful then we could ever comprehend.  

Our historical past is extremely violent, as is our present day. From dictatorship to religious fanatics, its remarkable our human species hasn’t yet been terminated. We are indeed an illogical species, forgetting about the needs of the many and too many of us are self absorbed in the needs of the one. 

We are illogical. 

It’s my hope my grandchildren will one day explore the fruits of our universe while building the foundation of their generation into a more stable civilized society expressing the love for others. If not, it’s just a matter of time our species will become extinct, like our predecessors, the dinosaurs. 

Maybe one day, millions of years in the future, another carbon-based species will find and decipher today’s article, taking heed to the warning signs of our demise. THEM, being an advanced civilization who were nurtured by millions of years of unaltered evolution, they may wonder how these savage human beings ever survived at all. 

OR 

Maybe today, the younger generation will read this article, realizing the fate of mankind, taking steps to eradicate the diseased virus of being self absorbed and begin a brighter future for all of mankind, where freedom is for all, wars no longer exist and the meaning of peace and love is for everyone. It will also mean we must explore other worlds, in order to remove the hardships of Mother Earth, as our footprints continuously places havoc on our planet’s fragile environment. We can be the loving caretakers of earth 🌏 and other M-based planets we visit, realizing our world is a living breathing entity of life, essential to our own well being. We still have a chance to grow into responsibility human beings with the potential to become caring individuals who takes our ‘footprint’ on earth seriously. If not, we may never repair the harm we’ve placed upon on our own beloved planet, we call HOME. And, if so, we don’t have an right to eject our human-virus onto other planets

We are illogical but we can learn to be so much more. Sadly, we have the potential, but never seem to use it for the betterment of mankind.

Welcome to Earth 

Welcome to Earth 

Welcome to Earth by Bari Demers
I run and own Facebooks Page Vegas Reviews. With the last Presidential debate in Las Vegas, it was hard not to say anything. After all I like to write, be it science fiction stories or my opinions in our world today.  

This is why I named my WordPress blog DREAMS AND REALITY

The DREAMS are from my prospective of our future mixed with science-fiction and fantasy. In comparison, the REALITY points out the integration of our society and will usually point out a warning in our near future. If we keep on the same path of destruction, mankind’s future may turn out to be a blink one.

With the Americans about to pick their 45th President of the United States, it brings up the welfare of humanity and what it’s striving for. There are over 350 million people in the United States. In comparison to India, this is only one third of their population. But the same concerns are still there, be it only 35 million in Canada, to over one and half billion people in China. Can the world sustain such a growing population ? Our world resources are quickly being gobbled up by an alarming rate, while damaging Earth, itself. The environment will eventually collapse under the stress of human beings interaction. 

Our future on Earth looks frightening blink, to say the least.

Right now Americans are worried and have good reason. They’re not only concerned about United States and where it will be in their near future, families are worried for their children and grandchildren. What kind of life will they endure after our generation are long gone? They will have to pickup the pieces we so willingly destroyed, due to carelessly or greed. 

Picking a leader, not only means someone with a good head on their shoulders, but also capable of answering the needs of its people. We all hope the thin imaginary walls ( if Trump gets in, these walls won’t be imaginary) are impervious to any kind of threat. The election will hopefully put in a strong leader, who really means to make a difference. 

I think what Americans ( like the rest of the sane world) are most worried about is : 

  • Their families are safe from harm.
  • Each family have strong sustainable jobs with a comfortable income to ensure their kids and grandkids are able to live in a free world, safe and secure.  
  • Education is assessable to everyone, no matter what your financial status is. 
  • Americans don’t want to see the world financial market crumbling at their doorstep. In other words, a strong economy with American made products available throughout each industry.  
  • It’s also important that whatever job they do, they enjoy that job so much, it no longer seems like work. So, in other words, education strives towards what they LOVE to do.  
  • An Agricultural equation where food and water is available to everyone.  
  • A strong push for reusable resources, without destroying our environment.  
  • The opportunity for families to enjoy life to the fullest with worrying where their next meal is coming from. The health and welfare of their families is number one.
  • And America’s Space Program should begin exploration as never before. It’s to ensure the safety and future of all humanity.  

We Need You
With that said, whatever happens on November 8 2016 – May the BEST candidate WIN! wink wink 😉 😉 

It will be the 58th quadrennial U.S. presidential election and the 45th President of the United States. To see the first woman President in office, would indeed make history, leading America into a new age away from the discrimination of women, colour or race. A Nation growing for a better tomorrow. 

Good Luck to both candidates! 

AND – if your an Alien visiting from a far away planet – Welcome to Earth!

Do Pets Dream ?

I believe they do.

Scientists are always testing the effects of RBD ( Sleep Behavior Disorder) in humans and what is called paradoxical sleep without atonia in animals.

Atonia is a state described where a brain mechanism is triggered causing our muscles to relax, which is really a good thing.

Can you imagine the outcome of acting out your dream?

Clinical studies agree there’s noticeable behavior in our pets experiencing dreams. Unfortunately they can’t express their dream for obvious reasons. If they could it would remind me something like Garfield (the cartoon cat) would say,” Hey there human? You want to hear about my dream? ”

Every pet owner will agree with me without a doubt they do indeed dream. I have experienced my dog Piper whimper, growl and twitch in a manner that resembles dreaming.

Have you experience your pet dreaming?
