"Plato maintained that the Atlanteans possessed a highly spiritual wisdom-religion, which enabled them to “see” their own “soul” inside the
physical body. Seeing the “soul within” allowed the Atlanteans to harness its higher power, until slowly their “human” part began to overtake
their “divine” part:
“…the divine element in them became weakened…and their human traits became predominant, and they ceased to be able to carry their prosperity
—Plato, Timaeus and Critias"
Question: How many times do you think humanity has reached that level, and fallen again?
It took less than 100 years from Oersted to Tesla, to go from the first realization that electricity and magnetism are even related, to Tesla
manipulating the very force of nature, creating lightning larger than nature, making the sky glow green, pushing away rain clouds, levitating objects
with wireless energy, and more.
Humans have had pretty much the same mental abilities for tens of thousands of years at least, evidenced by artwork in caves around 30,000 to 50,000
The oldest great structure is thousands of years old, perhaps 3,000, 5,000, or more (The Sphinx might be the oldest).
There is a program showing what would happen if all Humans suddenly disappeared....in 100-1,000 years, EVERYTHING we have created will be
dust....except those things preserved in tombs.
How many times could Humanity have developed advanced technology and lost it in this time period?
50,000 divided by 200 years, makes 250 times that we could have developed advanced technology and lost it.
Apparently, this is a never ending cycle, that will repeat again.
