By george I think hes got it. All I am about to write is what I have learned over the years. I may be wrong BUT, its where I have come to.
You are right IMO. Mars was a former home. Their atmosphere changed as the volcanic activity changed.
Far distant and ancient human civilizations existed. There is no doubt in my mind. It is absurd at this point to ignore the common mythologies,
cultural practices, similarity in ancient languages pointing to a common tongue, and so on.
The cataclysm was not a single event but a drawn out one with many small cataclysms taking place that made a formidable civilization slowly peter
into oblivion. NOT before imparting to us what they could transfer....ideas.
There is a sad end to this story. They died off and we are meant to continue their legacy. They gave us a fighting chance at more than just survival.
Their offspring turned SOUR and took offence to their inheritance being shared with savages they didnt want to help like their noble progenitors
Their technology became a thing of novelty gifted from royalty to royalty until it all broke down and was melted down or lost at sea and in wars.
Allot was eventually purposefully destroyed by the now savage populations out of ignorance or misuse or by their misguided leaders so as to hide the
fact that our gods motives were less than noble. The petty descendants of the survivors may have stolen or made us destroy what relics and information
we were originally given. That was when we remade all the creation stories to make MALE gods giving birth to humanity (ribs of a god, bellies of
titans spewing forth the Olympians, and so forth.)
This is when we left the maternal dominated world we adopted to survive the wild. It could also be the natural order of the former world now untenable
under harsh survival conditions. We started recreating cities and government. That is when male dominated kingship took over and started to rewrite
our purpose. It was a mirror of the new societies power architecture. King, to captains, to soldiers like father to sons to beasts....
The remaining people of this former civilization had countless now primitive populations scattered all over the planet. This was a reconstruction
effort to rebuild all that was lost. (initially undertaken by the direct survivors of the former world)
This is the dawn of the sacred orders and the establishment of dynasties of those who still retained the most relics and information of the former
The primitive peoples were used as a tribute culture. Offering food, water, labor and supplies in the form of sacrifice to the gods so they didnt have
to risk venturing out into the wild and dying off trying to find food and materials. They may have not been entirely honest with us about their
divinity to this end.
This initially may have been a temporary necessary evil, but with successive generations the tribute never stopped but rather increased, and the
effort to educate turned into an effort of to retard potential threats as well as to perpetuate the easy life style they descendants in the know were
now enjoying. I think the offspring of the survivors fought a civil war and over threw their parents they now saw as antiquated and out of touch
Titans, the direct survivors, whom they were never going to surpass....so they killed them off to become supreme.
They ended up waging wars among themselves shortly after to control the wild populations and the remaining technology and information. This brought a
sharp end to any hopes of resurrecting the past since almost all was now lost. The former now completely dead.
So after the revelation of their failure to fulfill their betrayed progenitors will, they regrouped and best did what they were originally supposed to
The best they could muster was our first civilizations we have record of and many failed attempts that never made it very far.
Thats where we are now. The descendants of the descendants of the descendants, lol, have been hiding the fact that their ancestors ruined our best
shot at starting off where we left off. The way we were SUPPOSED to be had the will of the Titans been followed.
Thats why they are the way they are. They have a HUGE charge of conscience and a heavy weight and wide stain as far as their origins.
They fell from grace, were jealous of us for having to share paradise with us, and so have been undermining our ability to progress since we seem to
always move faster then they ever could. Something their superior selves cant bring to accept. Something the Titans knew and were counting on for us
to help their offspring survive together with us....something they never considered until it was too late.
They are not all cut and dry like that, but I am trying to explain the fear we made into mythology as far as gods, their wars, their hatred of us, and
our current dilemma.
There is so much more, but that is a good start.
Again, I may be wrong, but my heart tells me different.
