Before Atlantis: 20 Million Years of Human and Pre-Human Cultures
It is impossible to determine who we are, how we got here, or where we are going unless we know from where we came. An individual ignorant of his or her own past would be utterly lost, unable to plan for the future. So too, we, as a people, cannot make sense of the social, economic, and even environmental deterioration developing around us, because the energies that molded civilization and our very bodies and brains are not properly understood.
Happily, the outline of those critical energies is beginning to emerge clearer than ever before, thanks to some very recent discoveries. These discoveries are mostly given short shrift by the purveyors of public information, but they are emphasized here in detail, because they radically revise inadequate presumptions about human origins. Among the most surprising of these discoveries is our evolution—in water.
An “aquatic phase” had been postulated as long ago as the sixth century BCE; presented here is fresh evidence to show that early humans repeatedly returned to hydrospheric environments for evolutionary development—and to such an extent that our present physical and psychological configurations were formed by these encounters. Moreover, we appear to have been neither the first nor the only humans who walked the Earth, as borne out by finds in Oklahoma, Argentina, and elsewhere, predating our evolution by millions of years.
Before Atlantis challenges current paleoanthropological arguments on behalf of East Africa as the birthplace of Homo sapiens, pointing instead to Southeast Asia, where the most terrific volcanic eruption Earth ever experienced abruptly reduced humanity from two million individuals to a few thousand, worldwide. Pushed to the very brink of extinction, our species gradually recovered to develop the first high culture—not 5,500 years ago in the Near East, as textbook archaeologists would have it, but seventy centuries earlier, in Indonesia and the Central Pacific.
Before Atlantis offers the most comprehensive and—so far as this author knows—the only description of Stone Age sites around the world, thereby demonstrating that the so-called megalith-builders were transoceanic seafarers who circled the globe during the mid-fifth millennium BCE to create the first global civilization. An ultimate secret locked in their immense monoliths is revealed by examining the altered states of consciouness still generated by these powerful monuments. Nor was Christopher Columbus the first overseas visitor to America from the Old World. His arrival in 1492 was preceded by ice age Europeans, as proved by an abundance of their remains newly found from the Carolinas to Brazil.
We learn the real identity of the Garden of Eden, and the location of its well-preserved ruins, as excavated by university-trained archaeologists. The profound antiquity of Atlantis herself emerges with the first Atlantean an astounding 350,000 years ago.
These latest paradigm-shattering discoveries are transforming long-established versions of the past, and together comprise the New History. In it, we behold our true reflection as a young, civilizing species with a godlike destiny—not an old, failed primate doomed to self-destruction. The following interpretations and conclusions based squarely on fresh information accomplish for us what an appreciation of the past is meant to provide; namely, a well-defined examination of mankind’s dramatic origins that shaped and continue to mold our identity and the world in which we live.
Accordingly, Before Atlantis is an ambitious undertaking, aimed at an expansive, comprehensive, yet close-up panorama of our beginnings as a species and subsequent course of human evolution, through our earliest cultural efforts and first civilization. As such, it endeavors to determine what made us different from all other creatures, how we arrived in our present condition, and where we are headed.
