Seeking Atlantis

Seeking Atlantis

This blog is not so much about finding and seeking Atlantis as it is about not repeating the mistakes of Atlantis.

I have no doubt in believing some of the theories that Atlantis actually existed.  One major theory is that it’s a submerged city off the coast of Florida or maybe further South in the Bahamas, as evidenced by the Bermuda triangle, possibly indicated by the presence of a submerged electrical reactor of some kind.

The featured National Geographic 2014 video (to the right) explores alternate theories that Atlantis existed in what are now the mud flats in Donana Park, Spain or possibly further east in the islands of Greece or the Black Sea.

It’s possible that Atlantis existed and thrived on land somewhere, long ago, submerged by the ever constantly rising ocean waters, or alternately the victim of earthquakes and tsunamis.

But given that Atlantis existed,  the mistake we are currently repeating is that a lot of our intellectual creations, routine documentations and user manuals are purely electronic. Pull the plug and you don’t have access to them. Remove the creating city like Atlantis and everything is gone and unreachable.

Look at civilizations and cultures like the Mayans. We know as much about them as we do, because among other things, they even carved their calendars in stone.   Details of their life and culture in stone that has survived eons of erosion.  

Contrast that to our our cloud-based Google calendars, which are like vapor and would be unreadable with the disappearance of our electric grid.

So that is basically the thought I’m going to put out there. We are possibly and very likely repeating the mistakes of Atlantis. And we might be seeking Atlantis forever, but there’s nothing to be found, except for building remnants.

Are we going down the same road?  Will we leave anything behind to let our successors know what we were about and had achieved?

Is Florida the next Atlantis ?
