Map of Holy Time

 Indonesia the Cradle For Civilization

It was in Indonesia and the neighboring lands that Man, after migrating from the semi-desertic savannas of Africa, first found the ideal climatic conditions for development, and it was there that he invented agriculture and civilization. All this took place during the Pleistocene, the last of the geological eras, which ended a scant 10,400 tuns ago, approximately (8400 BC.)

The Pleistocene – a name which is Greek for "most recent" is also called Anthropozoic Era, or Quaternary Era, or yet the Ice Age. During the Pleistocene and more exactly, during the glacial episodes that happened at intervals of about 20 thousand years, sea level was about 100-150 meters (330-500 feet) below the present value. With this a large coastal strip the so-called Continental Platform with a width of about (200 km. = 120 miles) became exposed, forming land bridges that interconnected many islands and regions.

With the end of the Pleistocene Ice Age, the immense glaciers that covered the whole of the northern half of North America and Eurasia melted away. Their waters drained to the sea, causing sea levels to rise by the estimated amount of about 100-150 meters. With this rise, the majority of Atlantis disappeared along with most of its population, which we estimate based on Plato’s data at about 20 million people, huge for the epoch in question. 


Lemuria (Australia and New Guinea) was the larger of the two Atlantis’s mentioned by Plato. Atlantis (Indonesia) was the vast prairie which the Greeks called Elysian Fields and which the Egyptians named the Field of Reeds (Sekhet Aaru) or yet the Amerindian’s ancestral land (To-wer,) the overseas Paradise where they formerly lived in "Zep Tepi" (Primordial Time.) The partially sunken continent became the "Land of the Dead," the dreadful, forbidden region where no mariner ever ventured to go, for it was "The Land of no Return."


Interestingly enough the name "Ancestral Land" or (Serendip) is precisely the Dravidian name of (Taprobane, Sumatra) the island where the Hindus placed their pristine Paradise, likewise sunken in a cataclysm. The gloomy, pestilential place that remained above the water was named "Sheol" (Hell) by the Jews, and in the spared spots, "Island of the Blest" (Makarion nesos) or "Hades" by the Greeks. "Amenti or Punt" by the Egyptians, "Dilmun" by the Mesopotamians, "Hawaiki" by the Polynesians, and "Svarga" by the Hindus.


The Celts - whose legends are perhaps the best recollection of the sunken golden realm – called the place Avallon, Emain Abbalach or yet, "Ynis Wydr" (Island of Glass.) They also associated the eerie place with the Holy Grail and the resurrection of their dead heroes.


The Seminal Exodus

The greatest of all Lemurian colonies was Atlantis. Atlantis and Lemuria had prospered for a full zodiacal era 2,000 years, when the Cosmic Fireball initiated the great cataclysm that destroyed their common world at the end of the Pleistocene, (8400 BC.)


The scant survivors of the cataclysm that partially sunk Atlantis away were forced to flee their destroyed Paradise, moving first to Lemuria, which had been spared in its northern, loftier portion. But the global catastrophe had also caused the end of the Pleistocene Ice Age, and the melting of the Himalayan glaciers caused huge floods of the rivers of Asia, rendering the region unfit for human habitation. These floods and the plagues ravaged the remainder of Atlantis; already greatly destroyed by the original cataclysm, the conflagration of the Indonesian volcanoes and the tsunamis they caused.


Again these doomed people were obliged to flee, migrating along the ensuing millennia to remote places such as Egypt, Mesopotamia, Palestine, North Africa, Europe, North Asia, the near Orient and the Americas. Some came on foot in huge hordes like those of the Israelite exodus. Others came by ship, like Noah in his Ark or Aeneas with his fleet to found the great civilizations of the ancient world.


The great civilizations that we know of in the Indus Valley, Egypt, Mesopotamia, Asia Minor, Greece, Rome and Mexico were originally Atlantian colonies founded by the survivors of the cataclysm that destroyed the twin Paradises of Atlantis and Lemuria. These colonists the (Original People) of course attempted to recreate their Eden in their new homeland.


The Original People named each topographical feature after the archetypes of their pristine abode, just as immigrants will do the same nowadays. Such is the reason why we keep finding vestiges of Atlantis everywhere, from Brazil and North America to Spain, Crete and even Africa and Northern Europe. All these ancient civilizations spoke of civilizing heroes such as Manu, Noah, Aeneas, the Oannz, Hotu Matua, Quetzalcoatl, Kukulkan, Bochica and of course Atlas and Hercules, the omnipresent Twins that founded civilization everywhere.


Interestingly enough the only place so far unclaimed among the literally hundreds of sittings of Atlantis is Indonesia. Of course no solid evidence of the existence of Lemuria and even more so Atlantis has ever been found. The reason for this absence is easy to explain: the experts have all been searching for Atlantis on the wrong sides of the world.
