Lost Civilizations: Atlantis: Timaeus and Critias

Lost Civilizations: Atlantis: Timaeus and Critias
[ Introduction || The Dialogues || Cast of Characters ] 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. 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. Serves only as a brief introduction to Atlantis, a preface.

Greek Stories about Zeus-The Birth of Zeus, the King of the Gods Zeus was born by the Titans Cronus and Rhea. Cronus was notorious for being a very jealous and greedy deity. Out of the fear one of his children could take his throne, Cronus swallowed every child Rhea was giving birth to. However, when Rhea gave birth to her last child, Zeus, she managed to trick Cronus with the help of the Titans Uranus and Gaea. She gave her husband a rock in swaddling clothes to swallow, as a substitution to her child, and sent Zeus away to the Greek island of Crete. Special daemons named "Curetes" made noise by hitting their shields, so that Cronus would to not hear the cries of the baby. Zeus was raised secretly by the Nymphs and was fed with honey and milk from the goat nurse Amaltheia with the help of her broken-off horn. Soon came the day where Zeus was mature enough to claim the Kingdom of the World and he started a battle against his father and the Titans.

The Atlantis Heritage – Jeshua – channeled by Pamela Kribbe @ Aurelia | Pauline Battell – Star Seed – Lightarian (TM) Rays Master-Practitioner – Reiki Kundalini Master-teacher – Spiritual Channeller – Lightworker ART : Martin Bridge ____________ The Atlantis Heritage Jeshua channeled by Pamela Kribbe Dear friends, I AM Jeshua. I would like to be of support to you in these challenging times. This time of transition on Earth brings many old things to the surface. I would like to speak of these old times today, to bring you to a deeper understanding of yourselves, of who you are here-and-now. Please let me take you back to the beginning. I am taking you to the time of your birth as an individual soul, as a separate ‘I’. In being vulnerable and prone to illusion, you gather an enormous amount of experience, which enables you to really understand what oneness means, what love means at the level of experience. I ask you to go back to the time that this ‘being an I’ took shape for the first time. I now take a big leap in time, as I can only give a broad outline of this extensive history. Now imagine that you were contributing to the development of life on Earth. Atlantis – the second Fall into Experience

Lemuria Lemuria Lemuria, or Mu, is a mythical continent that allegedly was located in the Pacific Ocean area or the Pacific Ring of Fire. Today we read about accelerating natural disasters in that area - earthquakes, tsunamis - dormant volcanoes becoming active - as the tectonic plates continue to shift. This takes us to creation myths - thousands of flood stories around the world - the destruction of a continent and civilization by water, and the creation of something new to replace it in the cycles of time by the consciousness hologram that creates the illusion that this is all real. Japan: The Yonaguni Ruins are believed by some researchers to connect with Lemuria The islands within the Ring of Fire have ancient monuments, petroglyphs, and caves that hold clues to one of many ancient civilizations that once existed there - the most famous Easter Island. Samoans speak of a place called Bolutu. The Ica Stones of Peru may depict maps of the lost continent of Lemuria. Rig Veda History of the Concept

Atlantis - The Lost Continent Finally Found Condon Report, Sec 5, Chapter 1: UFOs in History Chapter 1 UFOs in History Samuel Rosenberg NCAS EDITORS' NOTE: The author of this chapter wrote it as a long essay with no sub-chapters. In the interest of reader conveninece, we have placed internal links in the text, consistent with the style used in other lengthy chapters. 1. In his summary of the work of the Colorado project, which appears as Section II of this report, Dr. An unidentified flying object (UFO, pronounced OOFO) is defined as the stimulus for a report made by one or more individuals of something seen in the sky (or an object thought to be capable of flying but seen when landed on the earth) which the observer could not identify as having an ordinary natural origin ... Dr. The wealth of ancient "UFOs" is due to a basic fact about man's perception of his contemporary universe. This in no way prevented him from interpreting what he saw or utilizing his interpretations in a manner that seems to have been convenient to the needs of his contemporary society. 2. 3. 4.

Mythical Chronology of Greece This Mythical Chronology of Greece depicts the traditional chronology established for the events of ancient Greek mythology by ancient chronographers and mythographers. This list largely reflects the work of Saint Jerome, whose work in turn was based primarily on the analysis of Apollodorus, Diodorus Siculus, and Eusebius. [1] In a few cases, the chronology also reflects the opinions of more recent scholars, who have cross referenced the mythology to archeological discoveries. These interpolations are noted with italics. Although the Greeks did believe that much of their mythology was grounded in fact, this list is not intended to imply the literal existence of real-world parallels to all the characters listed below. The dates below are approximate. Timeline The ages referenced in this section are the five Ages of Man of Hesiod. Before Hesiod's ages: The Birth of the World (1800BC-1710BC) Chaos gives birth to Gaia Gaia gives birth to Uranus Uranus rapes Gaia. Cronos becomes ruler of Greece.

Adept-School of the Past Lecture by Dr. RUDOLF STEINER, delivered on the 7th of March, 1907. From stenographic notes unrevised by the lecturer. The spiritual-scientific movement has arisen in our time not because of the arbitrary act of this or of that individual, of this or of that society, but because it is connected with the whole evolution of humanity and, as such, it should be considered as one of the most important of cultural impulses. If we would penetrate into the mission of the spiritual-scientific movement, we must transfer ourselves into the past and future of mankind. Just as the individual human beings have evolved, from the moment when they first descended as individual souls from the bosom of the Godhead, so mankind as a whole has also evolved. We should first explain that what we are accustomed to name “mankind” is only the product of the so-called fifth root-race. Simple folks of to-day still possess a fine feeling for the inner, spiritual and occult power of words.
