Lets take a trip in the way way way back machine to look at some forgotten and/or obscured times when civilizations fell. The first time occoured about 12,000 years ago. This was the time that the old testament calls the great flood. (lots of other civilizations have the same story. The old testament is mistranslated and unreliable…)
The period before this was the atlantean period. One suggestion is that Atlantis was in the Azores. The Earth was coming off of an ice age during this period, there were lots of species around that went extinct including wooly mammoths and saber tooth tigers. We really don’t know what this precursor civilization had achieved. It was destroyed by a comet strike that resulted in the sea level rising about 1000 feet. I think the oldest city iin conventional history is Jericho, founded a few thousand years after this event.
According to a number of theories the sphynx also comes from this period. there is even talk that the thing has chambers inside it that contain a library/archive from this early period.
Proposed site for Atlantis:
Civilization rose and flourished in the thousands of years following this, there was trade, ON A GLOBAL SCALE, metalurgy, culture, MODERN BANKING… According to clif high, there was even a system where you could write checks… All this happened thousands of years BC…
Well the banks got corrupt, and the money became inflated, the governments started building boondoggles that later became known as the wonders of the world like the Colossus of Rhodes and stuff. It all crashed in 1140 BC. The banks failed and civilization was reset. It wasn’t until the beginning of the classical era about 700 years later that civilization returned. (At the time of writing the goddamn banks are in the process of crashing yet again…)
The classical era is pretty well known so I won’t reveal how bad my history about the greeks and romans is. =P Anyway the interesting thing about this period is that the Romans too had trade routes that led all the way into the orient, known as the Silk Road. If there is any truth to our history, these routes were lost with the fall of Rome until they were re-opened by Marco Polo in the modern age…
Anyway, if you know some history that we should know then post it here. =P
A rather fancy, if at least somewhat plausible, theory of mine ist that the Atlantean civilization has already been interstellar, or at least interplanetary, and that the great catalysm on Earth was not a catastrophe, but an act of war that has bombed the surface civilization back to the stone age.
The Atlantean space colonies might be the origin of the advanced UFOs (not to be confused with the more primitive UFOs used by the deep state). Obviously there seems to be some kind of policy in effect that make the Atlanteans not show themselves too overtly, for whatever mysterious reason. (As someone who has played the latest Stellaris DLC “First Contact” the logical reason is that this arrangement maximizes the amount of research points they can gather from this planet.)
I admit that this is a pretty fancy story, but at least it tries making sense of an admittedly very confusing setting we find ourselves in. If anything, this hypothesis might suffer from “overfitting”.
Your lack of accurate knowledge of Greeks and Romans is by design. Modern schools are about whitewashing history because of systemic oppression against most people to keep very wealthy tyrants in power. Oligarchy, patriarchy, slavery, and the empire never ended globally. Ruthless tyrants from old Greece, the Roman empire, and Europe generally left their homelands to live in America for imperialistic goals. The empire never left. Significant imperialistic power from Greece and Rome was transferred to America. America is the current empire now. Very wealthy tyrants do not want most people educated enough to know that oligarchy, patriarchy, slavery, and the empire never ended. That’s why very wealthy tyrants make sure governments have surveillance technologies to spy on their slaves. It’s a form of mind control. It’s not about fighting against terrorists. America’s empire is controlled by terrorists who replace democratically elected leaders with dictators through military force and fascist intelligence agents. America’s oligarchs use economic sanctions, the Hague Invasion Act, and others to bully countries into subordination. This is really why western world banks are collapsing while most people suffer while very wealthy tyrants live in luxury. Tyrants who corrupted their homelands came to America after native “Americans” were raped and pillaged by white European men who were violent psychos. America, Rome, and Greece share a psycho culture of warmongering controlled by men. They reward violent psychopaths and sociopaths who cared about profit more than compassion. This is why the women got raped and abused by men. Women are still being treated like second-class citizens globally. It’s getting worse from increasing wealth inequality and rights attacks when very wealthy tyrant men replace democracy with inverted totalitarianism through corporatocracy including fascist war crimes. Western world countries are following footsteps of the Roman empire by oppressing most people to keep tyrants in power. Government surveillance is a human right violation. Lack of abortion access in America is to make sure women give birth to child slaves of corporations owned by wealthy men. This is patriarchy, slavery, and oligarchy. Legalized child marriage in America is to make sure wealthy male pedophiles can prey on underaged girls. This is patriarchy still while protecting pedophiles. Wealthy men prey on lower-class girls by controlling what public schools can teach by whitewashing history in America. This is patriarchy and oligarchy. Corporate media gaslights people into thinking women got more power over the years. But it’s the opposite actually. More women are actually doing self-deprecating jobs when barely making ends meet while very wealthy men live in luxury. Quality of life for most women is declining globally while very wealthy men live in luxury. Check what happened to most women during COVID lockdowns versus very wealthy men. You will see patriarchy never ended when very wealthy men were allowed to roam freely, which put people’s health in danger during the pandemic. All of these things are what led to the western world’s current demise regarding bank collapse. Society has become a declining I.Q. mob now. Even the Asian countries are complicit in rights violations by disallowing free press, internet freedom, online anonymity when legalizing government surveillance, accommodation for L.G.B.T. people regarding same-sex marriage, etc. So, it shows the world is controlled by heterosexual men or closeted gays who care about profit more than compassion.
