Plato's story of Atlantis - 370 BC

Jakarta (DreamLandLibrary) - The continent of Atlantis was first written in a dialogue by Plato entitled Timateus and Critias around 370 BC, which said that there was a fertile, prosperous, and technologically advanced country, but was destroyed by natural disasters, Plato himself got this story from Egyptians, and people in Egypt call it Keftiu.

Atlantis means: The land is Atlas - Land of 2 Pillars / Pillars which can be interpreted as a land between two Great Mountains.

Atlantis is a country that is very fertile, prosperous, high-tech, with the shape of the City in the form of a circle / ring, composed of land and water in sequence, this country is based on mathematical calculations that are very precise and efficient, so neatly arranged, with a magnificent palace that standing right in the center of the city, as the center of government.

The population of Atlantis consists of two nations, one of which is a descendant of the white, tall, blue-eyed, and blonde-haired Lemurians, who are the ancestors of the Aryans, while the other is Brown / Black, Relatively Short, Brown-Eyed, and Hairy Black.

The latest research conducted by Aryso Santos, confirms that Atlantis is an area now called Indonesia. After doing research for 30 years, he produced the book Atlantis, The Lost Continent Finally Found, The Definitiveve Localization of Plato's Lost Civilization (2005).

Santos presents 33 comparisons, such as area, weather, natural resources, volcanoes, and farming methods, which finally concluded that Atlantis was Indonesia. The rice terracing system that is typical of Indonesia, according to him, is the form adopted by the Borobudur Temple, the Pyramids in Egypt, and the ancient Aztec buildings in Mexico.

Referring to the research of Santos, in the past tens of thousands of years ago the territory of the Indonesian state was a unified continent. Not fragmented in tens of thousands of islands as they are now. Santos determined that in the past Atlantis was a continent that stretched from the southern part of India, Sri Lanka, Sumatra, Java, Kalimantan, continuing eastward with Indonesia (now) as its center.

In that region there are dozens of active volcanoes surrounded by a fused ocean called Orientale, consisting of the Indian Ocean and Pacific Ocean.

Plato's theory explains that Atlantis was a continent lost due to volcanic eruptions that simultaneously erupted. At that time most parts of the world were still covered by layers of ice (the Pleistocene era).

With the eruption of dozens of volcanoes simultaneously, mostly located in the territory of Indonesia (formerly), then part of the continent sank and covered by water from the melting ice. Among the eruption of Mount Meru in South India and Mount Semeru / Sumeru / Mahameru in East Java.

Then the volcanic eruption on Sumatra that formed Lake Toba with the island of Samosir, which was the top of the mountain that erupted at that time. The most devastating eruption later on was Mount Krakatoa (Krakatoa) which broke up parts of Sumatra and Java and others and formed the Sunda Strait.

Atlantis comes from the Sanskrit Atala, which means heaven or watch tower (Watch Tower - Suar), Atalaia (Portuguese), Atalaya (Spanish).

Plato asserted that the region of Atlantis at that time was the center of world civilization in the form of culture, natural wealth, science and technology, and others.

Plato determined that Atlantis was in the Atlantic Ocean now. Santos is different from Plato regarding the location of Atlantis.

The Brazilian scientist argued, that at the time of the eruption of the volcanoes, causing the ice sheet to melt and flow into the ocean, so that its extent increased. Water and mud from the ash of the volcano are weighing on the ocean and its base, causing tremendous pressure on the earth's crust at the bottom of the ocean, especially on the coast of continents. This pressure results in an earthquake. This earthquake was strengthened again by mountains that erupted later in a row, and caused a devastating tsunami wave. Santos named it Heinrich Events.
