Indeed, stepped pyramids
represent the Holy Mountain, itself a volcano whose slopes were terraced for agricultural reasons.
This Holy Mountain is no other than Mt.
Atlas and, more exactly, Mt. Meru. Mt. Meru is, as we already said, the
sacred mountain of the Hindus and the Buddhists of India, Indonesia and
the Far East in general. The legend of Mount Meru subsumes the tragedy
of Atlantis. Attracted to that volcanic peak like flies to honey, the Atlanteans there
met their doom eventually. When their volcano exploded, killing them
masse, and extinguishing their formidably advanced civilization, the Atlanteans disappeared from the scene. But they left behind their legend, which is as undieing as the smile of the Cheshire cat.
The tradition of terraced agriculture symbolized
by the stepped pyramids is encountered even in nations that had no volcanoes
and, even less, terrace based agriculture. Such was the case of Mesopotamia
and Egypt. Their fascination with these two features can only be the result
of an intensive Atlantean influence. The legendary Civilizing Heroes of these nations
personages such as Thoth, Osiris, Dercetto and the Oannes were
indeed Atlanteans mythified as gods and identified with the Nagas (or Titans)
The first Egyptian pyramid,
the one of Zozer, was a stepped pyramid which corresponds in both shape and ritual function with the ones of Indonesia (Borobudur) and Southeast Asia
(Angkor Vat, Angkor Thom, Bakong, etc.). As we see, there can be hardly
any doubt that the tradition of pyramid building derives from that of terraced agriculture and that both traditions originated in Indonesia, the true site of Atlantis, of Eden, and of the origin of Agriculture. How else could the tradition of terrassed agriculture have reached Egypt and Babylon, where it never existed but from the Far East, where it was developed? Whence else could it have reached both the Old and the New Worlds so early in time?
The Hanging Gardens of Babylon one of
the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World were no other thing than a terraced
mountain created artificially. The Babylonian
"temple-mountains") were indeed stepped pyramids representing the same
idea. The same thing also obtains in Egypt and in the Americas.
Queen Hatshepsut also built her replica of the
"Garden of Lebanon", which is none but the Garden of Eden replicated
by Queen Semiramis. King Solomon, in keeping with this ancient tradition,
also built his own copy of the Garden of Eden (primeval "Lebanon") near
his palace, in a legendary Jerusalem that never was indeed, except in the Atlantean tradition, where it is just an alter name for Atlantis' capital city.
The Egyptians often represented such "gardens"
by an effigy of Osiris planted with corn, his gift to humanity. Osiris,
the dying-resurrecting god of the Holy Mountain was, like Atlas, considered
to be the Pillar of Heaven (Tet). Indeed, the Egyptian
Tale the Two Brothers is an almost verbatim replica of the one of Atlas and Gadeiros, the many-named co-rulers of Atlantis according to Plato. The two brothers contend, and one kills the other, who later resurrects from among the dead. As we see, this duel corresponds to the one of Osiris and Seth, as well as its many counterparts. But all these are inded allegories of the War of Atlantis, where the two brothers are the "Greeks" and the Atlanteans, who fight to the bitter end and to their own mutual destruction.
19) O-Blood Group
One of the surest of all genetic traits
connecting two different populational groups is that of blood types. More
recent research has led to genotypes that are even more efficient for that
purpose. A global project, is now in course to determine the genotypes
of the diverse human groups, and in a few years we will be able to determine
with certainty who's who and who derived from whom. But, in the meanwhile
we must be content with far less than that.
What we have personally been able to determine
so far is that O Blood Type is typical of what we may call the "Red Races"
of Atlantis. This type of blood is characteristic of the red races of the
Americas; of the Canarian Guanches; of the Basques of France and Spain,
of the Scandinavians, of the Celts of the British Isles and the Atlantic
coasts of France, as well as of certain peoples of Polynesia and Indonesia.
This distribution of O Blood Type strongly
suggests that these peoples entered Europe from Indonesia, via the Indian
and the Atlantic Oceans, precisely as legends such as those of Celts, the
Romans, and the Greeks claim. Moreover, this distribution also suggests
an inroad from the Indies towards the Far East, reaching all the way to the Americas,
via Melanesia and Polynesia. In other words, it seems that the origin of
this O-blooded population was primeval Indonesia and the sunken lands of
the region, the very site of Atlantis.
Plato could not, of course, have foretold such a modern development. But it is far more than a coincidence that the
ancient "Reds" or "Royals" (Kshatryas or
Rajputs = "Sons
of Kings") claimed to have a different blood than commoners, the so-called
"blue-blood". Perhaps this is yet another legacy of the Atlantean science
degenarated into a legendary tradition on the existence of a superior race
of different blood destined to rule the others.
Accordingly, we marked the entries on our
Checklist on this issue, as follows: Doubtful (?): Plato, Thera/Crete,
Sunken Atlantic Island, Antarctica, Tartessos, for we do not yet have no
way of determining the blood types of these populations. However, this is
a definite future possibility with fossil studies of mitochondrial DNA.
Positive possibilities (V) are:
Scandinavia, the Incas, the Mayas, the African Northwest (Berbers), Celtiberia
and certain white populations of Polynesia and the Indies. The only definite
exclusion (X) in our Checklist is Schliemann's Troy, in Hissarlik
(Turkey), as the blood types of Eastern Europe and the Near East are characteristically
of the A-type, a sure indicator of an Asiatic origin. Of course, this fact
likewise tends to exclude certain proposed locations which we did not list,
such as the Bosphorus and the Caucasus, as well as sites farther east,
both in Europe and Asia.

The only superiority of any race or blood shows itself in the manifestation of compassion, love and identification with All.
