The Many Aspects of God
As we just said, myths work at several levels,
and a parallel such as the Atlantean one is just a facet of God s myriad
aspects. In other words, volcanoes are manifestations of God s power, the
weapon he often chooses to castigate the nations and to force Evolution
to follow its course. The Hindus call this force by the name of
a Sanskrit word meaning both "hard as diamond", as well as "thunderbolt".
vajra is the thunderbolt weapon used by almighty gods such as
Baal (Hercules s archetype), Zeus, Indra, Haddad, and a myriad others.
In fact, God is neither the vajra nor the volcano, but the force behind it, its impeller and wielder.
vajra is indeed the flail
of the gods, the Celestial weapon He uses in order to quicken Evolution
and to stir Nature into action, in the endless parade of lifeforms that
characterizes Life. Perhaps all this has a purpose in the divine conscience, though
I don t really know for sure. But there is no doubt whatsoever in my mind
that Catastrophism is God s way, if He indeed has any. Moreover, it is
also Nature s way, let no one doubt it. The ancients well knew that, and
so do I, having learnt from them. For instance, they often portrayed the
vajra as a flail or a lash, or even a hammer or a mace wielded by the god in order to stir Nature into action.
Gods like Christ are not the only ones to
die and to rise again from the dead. By the way, Christ too is the wielder
of the "iron rod", the hardest of metals being a metaphor for "diamond"
and, hence, for the
vajra. Christ was preceded by many aliases,
and the conception of "dying-resurrecting" gods akin to the Sun of Justice
dates from oldest antiquity. Among the many archetypes of Christ we can
mention, offhand, Osiris, Attis, Tammuz, Adonis, Shiva, Kronos, Saturn,
Dionysos, Serapis, Mithra and, of course, Krishna, in his infinite series
of avatars, and Hercules, the great hero, in his fiery apotheosis that
figured the Atlantean Conflagration.
are glass beads and concretions resulting from giant meteoritic (or cometary)
falls or, perhaps, from gigantic volcanic explosions as well. These collisions scatter tektites
far and wide, as in the above case. The ones in question are called Indochinites,
in an allusion to the region where they abound the most. The Indochinites
were dated at 700 kyears (one kiloyear = one thousand years). The explosion of Lake Toba took place 70 kyears
ago. The even larger one of Lake Taupo took place at some 100 kyears ago
These giant explosions
which all occurred in the region of Indonesia, volcanically the most active
in the whole world are easily large enough to trigger an Ice Age. However,
whether one is indeed caused depends on other conditions, probably dictated
by insolation and other variables, astronomical or not. As we just said,
the region of Indonesia has literally hundreds of active or dormant volcanoes,
and has been very little researched so far, due to its remoteness.
research of the Indonesian region will, now that its connection with the
birthplace of Mankind is being pointed out, certainly confirm the reality
of what we are claiming. Our research is based on very detailed local traditions and is the fruit of many years of study of the myth of Atlantis-Eden from a scientific though unbiased, point of view. We push no religious, scientific, philosophic or mercenary point, and our interest lies soley in establishing Truth. As the Romans used to say,
Amicus Plato, magis amica Veritas.
