So, what actually is werewolf or lycanthropy? Is it a fact
based on concrete evidences? Is it a myth, fabrication of feeble minds? Is it an exaggeration of some other things? Well, all these questions have been puzzling mankind for last 5 centuries. Though
many ingenious hypotheses have been suggested as possible explanations, definite conclusion can't be drawn. Some experts have
tried to observe it as purely supernatural phenomena while others have relied on scientific observations. Contradictions and
debates still persist and will continue till any single theory solves the jigsaw which seems unlikely considering complexity
and diversity of the topic. Nonetheless, the werewolf phenomenon has not perished yet; recent werewolf sightings are still
The word werewolf is most likely to derive from two old-Saxon
words, wer (meaning man) and wolf. Frequently used Greek terms Lycanthropy refers to the transformation process while Lycanthrope,
which is in fact synonymous to werewolf, is the afflicted person.
The popular definition of werewolf or lycanthrope is a man who transforms himself or being transformed into a wolf under the influence of
Introduction to Atlantis
Atlantis is the subject of a legend about an advanced island civilization that was destroyed or lost. Stories
about Atlantis are first mentioned in Plato's dialogues Timaeus and Critias, in which characters say it was destroyed by an
earthquake or a tsunami about 9,000 years before the time in which Plato wrote. The story claims Atlantis was somewhere outside
the Pillars of Hercules. According to Plato, the story originated with Ancient Egyptian priests.
Some people believe that the stories are fictions made up to serve the purposes of Plato's dialogs. But others
take them as if they were serious historical accounts.
There have been dozens — perhaps hundreds — of locations
proposed for the classical Atlantis. Some are more-or-less serious attempts at legitimate scholarly or archaeological works;
others have been made by psychic or other pseudoscientific means. As continental drift became better understood and accepted
during the 1950s, most "Lost Continent" theories of Atlantis have been proven conclusively false.
Some cultures have "lost civilization" myths. In some cases, it has been argued that there is a common historical
event or real "lost civilization" at the root of some or all of these legends, but there is considerable disagreement between
the competing hypotheses. It may be that these legends have arisen from many different historical events, and are only just
now being associated by modern theorizers because of their similarity. It may also be that these legends are entirely fictional,
but for some reason have arisen and remained popular in many different cultures at different times.

How do we know about Atlantis?
Timaeus and Critias, two of Plato's dialogues, are the only existing written records which specifically refer to Atlantis.
The dialogues are conversations between Socrates, Hermocrates, Timaeus, and Critias. Apparently
in response to a prior talk by Socrates about ideal societies, Timaeus and Critias agree to entertain Socrates with a tale
that is "not a fiction but a true story."
The story is about the conflict between the ancient Athenians and the Atlantians 9000 years before Plato's
Knowledge of the distant past apparently forgotten to the Athenians of Plato's day, the story of Atlantis was
conveyed to Solon by Egyptian priests. Solon passed the tale to Dropides, the great-grandfather of Critias. Critias learned
of it from his grandfather also named Critias, son of Dropides.
Cast of Characters
All of the men, except for Timaeus, who take part in or are mentioned in Timaeus and Critias are known to have
actually existed in ancient Greece. Records of their lives and deeds have been recorded in other writings from the time period.
Note: There are 2 people named Critias related to the story of Atlantis and this can lead to some confusion.
There is the Critias who actually takes part in the dialogues. He is the one who tells the story of Atlantis to Socrates.
Then there is Critias who was the grandfather of the Critias of the dialogues. This elder Critias told the story of Atlantis
to his grandson, Critias, who then conveyed the story to Socrates in the dialogues.
Those who actually take part in the dialogues:
Timaeus - there is no historical record of him.
Critias - Plato's great grandfather.
Socrates - Plato's
mentor and teacher. He was condemned to death by authorities in Athens for "corrupting the moral of Athenian youth"; He lived
from 469 to 399 BC.
Hermocrates - statesman and soldier from Syracuse.
Those mentioned in the dialogues:
Solon - Athenian traveler, poet, and lawgiver who lived from approximately 638-559 BC. According to Plato it
was he who learned of the story of Atlantis from an Egyptian priest.
Dropides - Critias' great grandfather who was told
the story of Atlantis by Solon, a distant relative and close friend.
Critias - Son of Dropides and grandfather of the
Critias who takes part in the dialogues. It was he who related the story of Atlantis to the Critias of the dialogues.

Edgar Cayce - Atlantean Hall of Records
Edgar Cayce predicted the discovery of an Atlantean "Hall of Records"
between the Sphinx and the Nile with a connecting entrance
the right, front paw of the Sphinx.
The following segment was taken from Cayce, Edgar "On Atlantis" New York: Warner Books, 1968.
...It would be well if this entity were to seek either of the three phases of the ways and means
in which those records of the activities of individuals were preserved -- the one in the Atlantean land, that sank, which
will rise and is rising again; another in the place of the records that leadeth from the Sphinx to the hall of records, in
the Egyptian land; and another in the Aryan or Yucatan land, where the temple there is overshadowing same. (2012-1; Sep 25,
1939) - from page 146
...the entity joined with those who were active in putting the records in forms that were partially
of the old characters of the ancient or early Egyptian, and part in the newer form of the Atlanteans. These may be found,
especially when the house or tomb of records is opened, in a few years from now. (2537-1; Jul 17, 1941) - p.146
...[the entity] was among the first to set the records that are yet to be discovered or yet to be had of those
activities in the Atlantean land, and for the preservation of data that is yet to be found from the chambers of the way between
the Sphinx and the pyramid of records.
(3575-2; Jan 20, 1944) - p.147
Q.2: Give in detail what the sealed room contains.
A.2: A record of Atlantis from the beginning
of those periods when the Spirit took form, or began the encasements in that land; and the developments of the peoples throughout
their sojourn; together with the record of the first destruction, and the changes that took place in the land; with the record
of the sojournings of the peoples and their varied activities in other lands, and a record of the meetings of all the nations
or lands, for the activities in the destruction of Atlantis; and the building of the pyramid of initiation, together with
whom, what, and where the opening of the records would come, that are as copies from the sunken Atlantis. For with the change,
it [Atlantis] must rise again. In position, this lies -- as the sun rises from the waters -- as the line of the shadows (or
light) falls between the paws of the Sphinx; that was set later as the sentinel or guard and which may not be entered from
the connecting chambers from the Sphinx's right paw until the time has been fulfilled when the changes must be active in this
sphere of man's experience. Then [it lies] between the Sphinx and the river. (378-16; Oct 29, 1933) - p.147-8

Alan Alford on Atlantis
Nearly twenty-four hundred years ago, the Athenian philosopher Plato penned one of the most controversial
and tantalising stories ever written. Once upon a time, he said, there had existed a magnificent seafaring civilisation which
had attempted to take over the world, but had perished when its island sank into the sea – the result of an unbearable
cataclysm of earthquakes and floods.
This civilisation had been called Atlantis, and it had heralded from the Atlantic
Ocean, taking its name from the god Atlas who presided over the depths of the sea. Its main island had sunk some nine thousand
years before the time of Solon, circa 9600 BC by our modern-day system of reckoning. The puzzle of Atlantis is this. On the
one hand, Plato was adamant that the island had sunk in the Atlantic Ocean, and equally adamant that the story was absolutely
And yet, on the other hand, modern scientists have mapped the floor of the Atlantic Ocean, using echo sounders,
‘Geosat’ radar and multibeam sonar, and found no trace whatsoever of any sunken island. The result is a deadlock
on how to decipher the story. Some argue that it is a myth, of uncertain meaning. Others argue that it is a moral and political
fable. And others, still, continue to argue that it is pure history, and that Plato simply got his geographical facts wrong.

Atlantis started with Plato and in his hands it was never a supercivilization of the
sort conjectured by later authors; perhaps in strictly Greek terms it was no civilization at all but rather a fatally luxurious
elaboration of an essentially barbarian way of life, for all its inception by a god. At all events, it was no seminal civilization:
it wasn't the fons et origo of all later civilizations in the world, indeed Athens was its independent contemporary. Both
Atlantis and old Athens were, for Plato, but episodes in the ever ongoing cycle of catastrophes and renewals that he saw as
the most rational and scientific interpretation to which the world of human experience could be subjected. For him, science
and religion were quite bound up together, so that the natural catastrophes were at the same time eras in which the divine
light was withdrawn from the world and the equally natural renewals were times when it returned. So rational and obviously
true was this scheme of things to Plato that the "problem" of the real historical location and fate of Atlantis that has exercised
so many writers after him would have left him cold, or perhaps amused to think of what he had started. We quoted early in
this book several passages of Plato to show how he handled stories in his works.

Evidence for Existence of Atlantis
The following 4 segments contain excerpts from the full length articles listed below.
"This is probably the greatest discovery in World history", was stated by Maxine Asher, the co-director of
a scientific expedition that found Atlantis at the bottom of the ocean, reported United Press International and major newspapers
in the United States during the summer of 1973. UPI continued that "Maxine Asher said that scuba divers found data to prove
the existence of the super-civilization which legend says sank beneath the sea thousands of years ago". "The divers had found
evidence of roads and large columns, some with concentric spiral motifs, in the exact place described by the Greek philosopher
"The group of some 70 scientists, teachers and adventurers was endorsed by Pepperdine University in Los Angeles,
The document "History of the Golden Ages" reveals over 30 ruins including pyramids, domes, paved roads,
rectangular buildings, columns, canals and artifacts that have been found on the ocean bottoms from the Bahamas to the nearby
coasts of Europe and Africa, referencing the vast size of the lost continent.
Dozens of historians and famous writers
wrote about the Atlantis they believed existed, how the Myans and Aztecs had told their conquerors that they came from Atlantis
and Mu, about ancient tablets photographed in Peru showing those two lost continents, Atlantis and Lemuria, and ancient maps
clearly showing Atlantis.
Just some of the ruins so far found include:
A pyramid explored by Dr Ray Brown on the sea floor off the Bahamas in 1970. Brown was accompanied by 4 divers
who also found roads, domes, rectangular buildings, unidentified metallic instruments, and a statue holding a "mysterious"
crystal containing miniature pyramids. The metal devices and crystals were taken to Florida for analysis at a university there.
What was discovered was that the crystal amplified energy that passed through it.
Ruins of roads and buildings found off Binini Island in the 1960's by the photographed and published expeditions
of Dr Mansan Valentine. Similar ruins were also photographed off Cay Sal in the Bahamas. Similar underwater ruins were found
off Morocco and photographed 50 to 60 feet underwater.
A huge 11 room pyramid found 10,000 feet under water in the mid Atlantic Ocean with a huge crystal top, as
reported by Tony Benlk.
A 1977 report of a huge pyramid found off Cay Sal in the Bahamas, photographed by Ari Marshall's expedition,
about 150 feet underwater. The pyramid was about 650 feet high. Mysteriously the surrounding water was lit by sparkling white
water flowing out of the openings in the pyramid and surrounded by green water, instead of the black water everywhere else
at that depth.
A sunken city about 400 miles off Portugal found by Soviet expeditions led by Boris Asturua, with buildings
made of extremely strong concrete and plastics. He said "the remains of streets suggests the use of monorails for transportation".
He also brought up a statue.
A marble acropolis underwater across five acres of fluted columns raised on pillars.
Heinrich Schilemann, the man who found and excavated the famous ruins of Troy (which historians thought was
only a legend), reportedly left a written account of his discovery of a bronze vase with a metal unknown to scientists who
examined it, in the famous Priam Treasure. Inside it are glyphs in Phoenician stating that it was from King Chronos of Atlantis.
Identical pottery was found in Tiajuanaco, Bolivia.
Many other examples of roads, buildings and columns are available, many of them made with materials not available
in their areas.
Many ancient maps are also known to have Atlantis on them, including the ancient Greek ones studied
by Christopher Columbus before he set sail for America.
Ancient writings from the Aztecs, Myans, Greeks, Egyptians,
Spain, India, Tibet, and islands in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans all speak of ancient sunken continents and their connection
Human footprints and shoe prints, a perfectly engineered cube, jewelry, a prehistoric animal with a hole in
its skull that scientists admit only a bullet could make, a remnant of a screw, and other modern artifacts have been found
in layered rock strata geologists admit formed on these objects MILLIONS of years ago. All of these discoveries were printed
in public daily newspapers when they occurred, and left out of history books simply because historians could not explain them
with THEIR theories.
Who Were the Atlanteans?
Firstly, it's important to point out that Atlantis was not the only continent from ancient times that sank
beneath the waves. There was the huge continent of Lemuria which also incorporated other countries like Mu and Mar in the
Pacific Ocean, and Lumania in the Indian Ocean. Remnants of the lost continents may still be seen as the peaks of their mountains
make small islands in the middle of vast oceans - Easter Island is thought to be a remnant of Lemuria and still bears the
great stone statues, though only their heads are showing above the ground.
There were also the lands of Thule and Hyperborea
in the north, which are believed to be sunk below what is now the north pole. There is also information about this land at the north pole continuing to exist today on a fourth dimensional level - but that's another story.
Also the land which is now at the south pole was also thought to be once inhabited when it was a tropical land.
story of how these various continents became inhabited with highly advanced civilizations is a fascinating one, but after
many thousands of years it all came to an end for the last time around 11,500 years ago with dramatic planetary events which
sank and shifted continents and covered much of the earth with water. Clues to the history on earth before our own recently
recorded history can be found in the Sumerian texts.
So who were the Atlanteans and how did they live? The following
information has been gathered from various sources for a very brief introduction. I recommend that you read the original documents
for more in-depth information [linked at the bottom of the page].
The original Atlanteans were of extra-terrestrial
origin and came to earth over 50 thousand years ago. They were of human shape, but not modern earth humans as we are. They
were very tall and fair skinned and probably originated from the Lyrian star system. They are also known as the Elohim or
Annunaki and their story is hidden in the texts of Genesis. They had life spans of around 800 years and are known in some
texts as 'the tall ones'.
Most all ancient civilizations believed in the Titans, the race of giant humans that inhabited
Earth long ago. Different races knew them by different names. These 7 to 12 foot humanoids were thought to be legendary until
the excavation of over a dozen skeletons 8 to 12 feet tall, around the world, shocked archaeologists. The Spanish Conquistadors
left diaries of wild blond-haired, blue eyed 8 to 12 foot high men running around in the Andes during the conquest of the
They, along with other groups working on the planet, eventually developed the smaller human being by genetic
manipulation, originally for use as workers.
The 'Adamu' (or man) were originally created to work in various projects
around the world. Some of these were mining, food production, construction, etc. By giving man the ability to reproduce on
his own (the original sin), the population began to multiply quite rapidly. The Annunaki began to clamor for more of the workers.
Human females were further altered so that conception was possible not once per year, but every 28 days. This can be found
in Genesis, Chapter 3, Verse 16.
The Annunaki soldiers eventually started to reproduce with the earth human females:
"When the sons of the Elohim came unto the daughters of man, and they bore them children".
Technology on Atlantis
The Atlantean consciousness eventually evolved from a less material, fourth-dimensional form toward the sensual,
or physical. Far from being like the other 'ancient' civilizations that we know about, the level of technology reached when
Atlantis was at its' peak was far superior to our own.
Among the accomplishments of the Atlanteans, for example, was
'perfect' wather control. Now the average immediate notion is of abundant fields of waving grain in endless summer alongside
the most beautiful of beaches. They had that, and it bored them; too utilitarian to them, like we might look at a vineyard.
They left such backlands to the serving creatures. The Atlanteans had come into the physical world essentially for the stimulation.
They loved storms. Whole areas of their land were given over, like national parks, to violent displays of atmospheric turbulence.
Their servants, of course, were less fond of these events, which could kn the equivalent of "artisitc licence" spill over
and kill them, destroy their homes, etc. If the Atlanteans noticed and/or cared, they could restore all this damage at will.
Some did, some didn't.
They also had the ability to effect geological events for their experiential pleasure. Volcanic
fountains were a favourite, but much was done with steam and mineral venting for artistic result. They had plenty of time.
The earlier ones were still immortal. More than one volcanic seamount poking its head above the waters of the Atlantic Ocean
started out this way. Later, of course, they lost control.
The real core of Atlantean technology that can still be
dug up around the earth was far beyond something as simple as weather control. What has attracted the military like carrion
is the 'threshold' technology. Some hint of this floated up in the movie 'Stargate', except that the Atlantean version could
be called 'Probability Gate'. It's a solid state device (with no selectable 'dial' like the stargate in the movie, for instance)
that uses what we think of as time/space as an energy source. The threshold is a lens into probable existence streams, or
continua. This area was delved into more deeply with research like the Philadelphia Experiment.
The Atlanteans used crystals quite extensively, and mis-used them to such a degree that they eventually led
to the catastrophe which caused Atlantis to disappear into the ocean.
The Atlanteans used the knowledge of the crystal
refraction, amplification and storage. It is known that a beam of light directed intensley and focused specifically on certain
series of facets in a gem will, when it exits from the reflective plane of the gem, be amplified rather than diminished. And
further, these amplified energies were broken down into a wide and sophisticated spectrum. The Atlanteans used the spectrum
of this energy so as to be more useable, and for a specific purpose, much as one would use petoleum in terms of its various
spectrum limitations for specific purposes.
Extracting this and that and other things from the same basic substance,
they used certain divisions of the energy for growing things. Others for healing, others for knowledge or increasement of
substance. Other phases of spectrum for dissassembling molecule structures, and yet other combinations of these strata for
building, assembling structures, as in chains; or producing matter, transmutation of matter and that sort. Their basic technology
is still available in the earth plane in various locations.
Crystals have the ability to transfer energy, to retain
it, to maintain its intensity, to focus and transmit it over great distance to similar receivers as are equal or comparable
to the transmitter. Thus, from one pyramid to another the Atlanteans, in a sense, transmitted energy. That when the face of
the earth was directed toward a certain point, one pyramid would function to intensify and transmit energies to other pyramids
which would then act as receiving devices and would disperse energy as it was needed. The opposite would be true, when that
pyramid was at unfocusable point to their celestial alignment the others would transmit to those. Very simple method, very
effective method. Though it brought them many difficulties later.
Atlantean crystals were natural forms, but their
growths were speeded up. Some specimens of clear quartz were produced to almost 25 feet high and 10 feet in diameter, had
12 sides and were used for storing and transmitting power.
Small crystals, four to five feet high were infused with
different colours, and had a varied number of facets, to be used for different purposes, such as healing, meditation, psychic
development, increasing mental capacity, communications, powering generators, dematerialisation, and transport of objects,
magnetic force fields, and travel at speeds undreamed of by our culture today.
A number of crystals were shaped into
invered pyramids, with four to six sides, were infused with various shades of pink or rose, which created a light beam for
surgery, by changing molecular structure, and for soothing pain, particularly in the delicate areas of the brain, the eyes,
the heart and reproductive organs. Gold or yellow crystals changed colours to deeper hues in the presence of disease or bodily
vibrational disorders. Ruby and purple stones helped cure emotional and spiritual problems; and black crystals, no longer
in existence, were powerful protectors.
For general rejuvenation and a return of vitality the ancient Atlanteans periodically
meditated 15 to 20 minutes inside a circle of 6, 11, 22 or 24 stones of different types, holding a clear quartz in their hands,
which acted as a control and focaliser.
All these various crystals received their power from a variety of sources,
including the Sun, the Earth's energy grid system, or from each other. The larger stones, called Fire Crystals, were the central
receiving and broadcasting stations, while others acted as receivers for individual cities, buildings, vehicles and homes.
On a higher spiritual level, rooms made of crystals were places where the Initiates left their bodies in the Final Transcendence,
often never to return.
In the modern Bermuda Triangle, on the ocean bottom where the ruins of Atlantis now exist, the
energy build-up in the sunken and damaged Fire Crystals can periodically trigger dematerialisations of anything in the area.
of the most detailed descriptions of the Atlantean use of a mysterious instrument called the Great Crystal was given by Edgar
Cayce, who mentioned it many times. The crystal, he said was housed in a special building oval in shape, with a dome that
could be rolled back, exposing the Crystal to the light of the sun, moon and stars at the most favourable time.
interior of the building was lined with non-conducting metal or stone, similar to asbestos or bakelite, a thermosetting plastic.
The Crystal itself, which Cayce also called the Tuaoi Stone, or Firestone, was huge in size, cylindrical in length, and prismatic
in shape, cut with six sides. Atop the crystal was a moveable capstone, used to both concentrate incoming rays of energy,
and to direct currents to various parts of the Atlantean countryside.
It appears that the Crystal gathered solar, lunar,
stellar, atmospheric and Earth energies as well as unknown elemental forces and concentrated these at a specific point, located
between the top of the Crystal and the bottom of the capstone.
The energy was used for various purposes. In the beginning
it was used as purely a spiritual tool by initiates who could handle the great energy. The early Atlanteans were peaceful
people. As they developed more physical material bodies, they used the crystal to rejuvenate their bodies and were able to
live hundreds of years while maintaining a youthful appearance.
Later the Crystal was put to other uses. Currents of
energy were transmitted throughout the land, like radio waves, and powered by these, crafts and vehicles traversed the land,
through the sky and under the sea at the speed of sound. By utilisation of other currents originating from the Crystal, the
Atlanteans were also able to transmit over great distances the human voice, and pictures, like modern television. In the same
manner, even heat and light could be directed to specific buildings or open arenas, giving illumination and warmth by seemingly
Toward the end of their existence, however, the Atlanteans became greedier for more power, the operation
of the Crystal was taken over by those of less spiritual fortitude, and the energies of the Great Crystal were tuned to higher
and more destructive frequencies.
Finally the Crystal was tuned too high, activating volcanoes and melting mountains,
ultimately causing the submergence of Atlantis, and perhaps even the axis shift of the Earth itself.
Atlantis in Mexico?
by Ed Ziomek
Gene D. Matlock deeply searches and analyses different cultures also comparing with Vedic (vaydik, Sanskrit:
वेद)) ancient culture of Asia, quite common over India to Japan passing through Tibet and China, finding
outstanding curious similarities among all cultures among the globe when all where in the mythical "golden age". He compares
linguistically the different languages he analyses; western, eastern, ancient Native American and other languages.
He says that with this method , used long before him by others linguist, and exploring deep in etymology, he
finds impressive similarity between the myths from ethnies around the world circa the copper age, bronze age or other ancient
times he refers to in his papers.
He finds links between Maya, Native American and Asian ethnicities, oral tradition and ancient cultures.
Gene D. Matlock seems to have discovered many language and culture similarities between many pre-Columbian
civilizations and people from Afghanistan to far east Asia. Also giving arguments that support the idea of extensive commercial
relations between pre-Columbian America with the rest of the world, long before Christ, has Matlock tries to find rather possible
or not. He might be quite convinced that ancient cities from Mexican gulf to Tenochtitlan are related to some Atlántepec,
Tolan, A-tolan and other TLAN like cities:
Quote:_"Should we continue our fun guessing games about Atlantis for another few millenniums? Or should we
confidently begin our search for the submerged half of Atlantis from Atlántepec's (Mexico's) southeast coast? Will the ruins
that we'll surely find be those of the real Atlantis?"
He believes we should be conducting the search for Atlantis in the Yucatan region of Mexico. Matlock cites
place names as one of the compelling proofs:
Atlán, Autlán, Mazatlán, Cihuatlán, Cacatlán, Tecaltitlán, Tihuatlán,
Atitlán, Zapotlán, Minititlán, Ocotlán, Miahuatlán, Tecaltitlán, Tepatitlán, Tihuatlán, Texiutlán, and the like. Notice that
the Nahuatl Tlán root of these place names is exactly like the Tlan in "Atlantis."
He also cites an ancient, spiral-shaped harbor with high banks or dikes lining the channels that once existed
near San Lorenzo Tenochtitlán, Mexico. This layout is very much like that described by Plato for Atlantis's great port city.
When Gene D. Matlock was seven years old, he became deathly sick from pneumonia. His mother prayed that if
he survived, she would dedicate him to the study of theology. She never suspected Gene's studies would lead him to "no-no"
conclusions not welcome in Sunday School, the mosque, and the synagogue.
Matlock says that the linguistic revelations comparing different cultures are astonishing. That we are and
always have been a global community from the very beginning of civilization. He says: "When I was a young college student
in Mexico, I took a course in linguistics. This course and my experiences in studying Spanish, Portuguese, Malay, and Nahuatl,
taught me that a word is much more than a combination of strange sounds. Each one tells the history of the people who use
it." According to Matlock, the secret surrounding the location of Atlantis -- and thus, proof that it really existed -- can
be traced back to the forbidden letter.
He then tries to link everything with the ancient roots of "Panch" , Panis, Phoenicias and Hebrews, linking
many things according to his research, but many scholars don't agree with this.
Modern game fictional characters like Gill (Street Fighter), and Urien (Street Fighter) are examples of the
fantasy Atlantis may arise in subconcient, has it has being for many years a source of mystery and inventions.
