Atlantis! Just the name congers up all types of myths and legends. Mysteries and opinions. For some, the very thought that it even existed is considered a joke. To others, the fact of its reality is without question. Shrouded in the mists of ancient history, before known records, it still has an influence on our imaginations today. In this book, Atlantis: "A Karmic Memory of the Rise & Fall", an idea is introduced. The idea that Atlantis was not only real, but that someone who was there, has detailed memories of what it was like. Not only personal memories, but memories mixed with a karmic connection to the energy records that dwell in a place out of space and time. These records are called “mass consciousness” by some, “Akashic Records” by others and more names by many others. Whatever the name, the idea is the same. Energy can not be destroyed and the energy of information gleaned from all experience is held in some form of records that adepts of all kinds have been known to access. When Zarin approached me with the first pages of manuscript for this book, I was intrigued. Having been a practicing Metaphysician for 40+ years had taught me that all things are possible and much that is considered to be silly fantasy or outrageous impossibilities are often the very essence of truth. Truth that is misunderstood, feared, forgotten or covered up for personal or economic reasons. I began to read as he described his memories of a time before recorded history that contained facts and insights that stretched my imagination, yet crushed some cherished conceptions. Whatever your belief is, concerning Atlantis, this book is likely to catch your interest as a detailed vision of the creation, the finding, the building and the destruction of the place known as Atlantis. Much of what is contained within these pages flies in the face of much popular theory, yet offers explanations of many misunderstood discoveries of recent times as well as many that are about to come to light. This book is being released in four parts, as e-books. Once the final part is released, the complete book will be released in electronic as well as printed form. This is the first Book entitled "Paradise". iv

Maybe it can never be fully grasped as it may not be a part of our space/time matrix? I am a person who was educated with an intense interest in both science and logic. as well as a great preference for history. golden cities and a strange orange glow. I have received images of Great pyramids. Starting in 2001.000 years. Yet. Soon the development of strange flying vessels entered my vision.

I suspected that there was so much missing from our understanding of history. and vast changes constantly appearing. So much was unexplained or didn't make sense. Now I get distracted by people everywhere. That is three times the length of time the Roman Empire survived. vi . and especially the Dolphins spiritual involvement. I've noticed that my sensitivity has been growing by leaps and bounds. I could go anywhere and not be affected by the energy of anyone. But. Often. Was this just my creative and imaginative mind at work? Or was it something else? What is imagination anyway? Where does this thing come from that separates man from almost all the other creatures on this planet? Some believe that the mind may connect to a place out of time and space. and increasing in the last few years. and from every direction. Atlantean history is packed with many characters. The first images came in a dream involving the use of crystals and their involvement in Atlantis' destruction. how this happens is not understood. Then characters started coming to me. We are talking about the history of a “civilization” that spans well over 3. unbelievable drama. This sensitivity.
there will be great hostility to any ideas that might upset the “apple cart” of entrenched history. these discoveries were still missing something important. Maybe these visions of Atlantis are both true and real. The third book: “Destruction". This first book: “Paradise” establishes the foundation of the Atlantean civilization's structure and the radical changes that came to it. This needs to be done in order to clarify the why. This sequence allows Book 2. A past that not only wishes to be awakened. I suspect. that it now only exists as myth. What if many of these questions could never be answered unless you were to take a great leap of imagination? A leap which could allow the premise that there may have been an older civilization. how and who that caused these changes. One. This story of Atlantis is written. Then.

However. many characters are introduced which help to explain the developments in Atlantean history. contains so many surprises and twists. It is the foundation on which the second book: “Exploration” is built. Then a radical premise entered my imagination. first. but needs to be. a final glimmer of hope shall conclude it. with a few scientific premises introduced. that it will be well worth waiting for. I hope mine won't be as difficult. Maybe I should accept what is flowing from my sixth sense.

This book is much more character and event driven as it is the people involved that are the relevant factors in what eventually happens. where the completed puzzle will be finally seen in its totality. This history is as tragic as that which was revealed by Plato in his often quoted references. as the pieces of this puzzle are put into place. Yet. Each of the three books is itself a puzzle.

These collisions also set in motion the mass extinction and evolution of new life forms that would eventually lead to the emergence of modern humans upon this planet. wavelike disturbances within this liquid sub-surface material. Because of the extremely rare angle of impact and the huge amount of ejected matter.Return to TOC Prologue Billions of years ago. a 6-10 mile wide meteor/asteroid collided with Earth #2 near what is now the Yucatan Peninsula and the Caribbean Sea. One was about the size of Mars (designated Orpheus). this ring of orbiting material coalesced into another large body. and the other was a planet slightly smaller than the current Earth (the first body could be referred to as Earth #1). Some collision material was launched outward to other solar planets. Occasionally this material would move close enough to Earth #2 to come crashing back onto it. some of this material formed a temporary ring around Earth #2 making it resemble the planet Saturn. These “ripples” resulted in numerous volcanic 11 . The unique reforming of this crystal matrix produced one of the rarest ever to exist on Earth. Unusual metal combinations and crystalline structures came into existence. Many gems and chemical structures (possibly even life) originated from this event.. Earth #2 had acquired a moon. The second object impacted in the northwestern Atlantic Ocean. This new crystal was the result of both the Yucatan shock and the united reverberations of another simultaneous meteor collision (both objects may have originated from one single comet/meteor that broke apart as it entered Earth's atmosphere). Massive amounts of material were ejected into space. two planets collided to create the current solar body we call Earth. was created as the two planets fused together. many pieces reached unstable orbits around Earth#2. This very deep penetration into the crust and magma beneath the Caribbean Sea."the Atal stone". About 65 million years ago.. set in motion. when the solar system was forming. The new planet. The resulting massive shock of this particular impact created an entirely new crystal matrix that had not been fully completed when Earth #2 and the Moon formed.. After a period of time. then came crashing back down to the surface of the new planet. The heat and pressure of this massive collision created many materials that might not have been possible to create any other way.

eruptions. These eruptions also lead to the creation of new land areas within both the Caribbean and Atlantic areas. A particularly agitated volcanic hotspot created three huge eruptions and then one long term slow eruption, (such as occurs in Hawaii). Each of the first four successive eruptions was progressively smaller in diameter. Thus, was created an almost concentrically ringed land mass consisting of three rings surrounding a peninsula connected to a much larger irregularly shaped island/continent. This land mass, over twice the size of Cuba, would eventually come to be known as “Atlantis.” The main landmass spread out from the 3 concentric volcanic calderas and an adjoining peninsula into a widening trapezoidal shape. This island/continent had a mountain range running off center about two thirds up it's western side. This range, which reached it's highest point at about 3500 feet (Mt. Attu), was created as the volcanic hot spot moved slowly to the northwest. The magma hotspot finally shut down around 20 million years ago and due to plate tectonics moved off to the west. Any volcanoes that had once existed on the original landmass of Atlantis were now extinct. This lush and fertile continent lay untouched and unpopulated for millions of years. Then, around 45,000 years ago, a great Ice Age had descended upon the Earth, covering huge areas of the Northern Hemisphere with an extensive and very deep ice sheet. This thick layer of ice lowered the water level of the oceans to hundreds of feet below the current level. Many land areas, cities, cultures and peoples that existed then, do not remain today and were either destroyed, buried, flooded or subsumed by plate tectonics. Any existing vestiges are under many feet of water, hidden from contemporary history and science; but not from humanity's memories, myths or collective imagination. About the same time of the great ice sheets, a race of human beings; who had moved into the ocean bordering areas of Western Europe, began building hollowed out log boats. With boating technology, these people began migrating along the ocean borders of this vast ice sheet, searching for the readily available and plentiful sea food to be found there. These humans were living much as Eskimos did over 100 years ago. After about 500 years, these daring explorers eventually reached North America in an area around the Chesapeake Bay. This region, at that particular time, would remind one 12

of Canada, as it appears today, just north of the Great Lakes. For thousands of years, this breed of humanity explored and settled the Eastern coast of the ice-free portions of North America. They extended their settlements further and further south, moving along the ocean edges to the Caribbean and then around the vast Gulf; eventually moving up the Mississippi and deep into the interior of the continent. They finally reached the north-western Coast of North America about 35,000 years ago, near the State of Washington. Their North American journey beginning near Washington D.C. and ending up near Washington State. Unable to go any further north, because of the pervasive ice, the migration of this European stock people was halted. The ice free majority of North America was then very different from what could be found within the recent 5000 years. Huge herds of Mammoths and other, now extinct, herd animals existed. These animals provided stable-food resources for the humans now meandering across the Continent. The technological level of these migrants, however, was barely better than Stone Age. Almost all of these people used a spear point and arrowhead technology that was nearly identical to that used by a people living in Southern France at around the same time. Around 12,000 years ago another large object from space hit the North American Continent, somewhere in mid-Canada. This collision created extremely unstable conditions; that led to the wiping out of most of the larger animal species (such as the mammoth, horse, camel, etc). This impact caused ice melting, great floods, windstorms, fires, and dust clouds with massive ecological effects. The fallout of this astronomical event also led to the apparent extermination of these first human populations. Those unique arrowheads and spear points suddenly stopped being made... everywhere on the North American continent. Prior to this extensive disaster, a small number of these "first Americans" had discovered and moved by boat onto islands off the southeast coast and then to islands near Bermuda and possibly onto Bermuda itself. (These are islands that now no longer exist and the remains of which are now deep below sea level. Bermuda was also much larger at this time.) These people retained their original sea based, food gathering technology, which was brought out of Western Europe. Often they would both fish and live in their boat “homes” as they sought out the ocean's resources, only returning back 13

to a seaside village to process their catch. At about the same time as the asteroid hit Canada, a number of these island inhabitants consisting of 40-50 boat ridden families, essentially a mobile fishing fleet, were blown far off course by a powerful mini-hurricane. These intense winds carried 12 boats of the original fishing fleet to a previously undiscovered landmass. This island/continent was about 500 miles to the east of Bermuda and 100 miles south. Its shape would remind many people of an upside down “Ankh” (the Egyptian symbol for life, also called the "Coptic Cross”.) Both of which were based on a much older symbol (possibly Atlantean in origin?)... the "Tau Cross". A symbol representing the sun reflected on water. These 12 fortunate families had accidentally discovered a hidden place that would later come to be known in human mythology by the name they would call it... "ATLANTIS”...”Land of the Clear Stone.” A name that would live in human legend and would additionally be assigned to the Ocean where this fabulous place was rumored to have existed.

The Prophecy of Ketz-al
“Woe to the children of Tau. The Great City shall crack. All wisdom lost to deep cold. The 3X4 shall crush its' flowers. Amber glow will dim and become as night. White webs break connections. Gold and silver birds fall from the sky. The multicolored will become as burned. The naked clothed in foam. To all pain a hundred fold mirror shall be received. The wise become ignorant and the ignorant wise. Clear bones melt. Caverns of silence grow noisy. The cities of Dolon are no more. When the father of life kisses the navel of the great Mother, a fiery snake will turn the Morning Star red. A lost sister will greet brightly in blue. Monsters shake the earth. The East shall rise, the North, then West before the center can be re-found. A half man, half beast shall herald renewed truth. A great hand points east. All that was, is, and shall be, as a dream, quickly forgotten with the first breath of El. Then quickly renewed when the water bearer returns. A great tree will sow seeds to the four winds. Yet lose its root. 13x13x13 shall pass before bloom returns. The essence of All is revealed. When the father shall return to kiss the mother's navel.” The Prophet Ketz-al

he discovered that discipline. Eventually. it moved as if it had no weight at all. Apparently this round hole was to enable the crystal to maintain contact with his skin. E-osuans or "men of the third eye".Return to TOC E-osu attached the crystal to the center of the leather strap with the small round hole. A group of males. He then glued the entire length of the two pieces of leather together and tapered the ends. The lady found she could lift it with ease and became perplexed at what had happened. will power and focus enabled him to move ever larger objects. It had now become heavy once again. she took advantage of this unexpected boon and effortlessly carried the basket to its destination. One day. E-osu and his followers would evolve and become known as Adepts. with his help. She placed the basket back down on the ground and tried lifting it again. With the crystal headband in place. after almost a century of change and evolution. of which. he would spend an hour just after sunrise focusing on various objects. A second hoot from E-osu made the lady suspect some witchcraft was at work. E-osu concentrated his thoughts on the basket to cause it to lift. The expression on the two men's faces brought another great outburst from E-osu. E-osu would become known as the "founder". and again. which drew a stern look from the woman. Later. who for the immediate future were to be called. E-osu then placed the piece with the square hole over the top of the crystal. E-osu was out seeking more crystals with the pyramidal shape. this time. Also. Suddenly. around his forehead and tied the two ends together. it suddenly became as light as a feather. Nonetheless. However. He noticed an elderly woman attempting to lift a heavy basket of fruit. This headband would become E-osu's mark of identification and the symbol of a future society he would create. This would keep the crystal locked in place. 23 . Over time. She started to lift it again. E-osu came upon two men trying to move a large and heavy tree trunk. He quickly recovered his decorum and began moving about the area helping all those he could. When the glue had dried he placed. what was now a head band. he fell to the ground with such intense laughing that nearby members of the community thought he was having some sort of fit. this headband became the symbol for a group of Atlanteans. after spending several months refining his disciplines. The expression on the elder lady's face was priceless. E-osu couldn't help letting out a great laugh. E-osu began practicing attempts at moving various objects. Every morning.

Soon people became aware of E-osu's unique ability and gossip traveled like a flash flood that he was a "Sorcerer" with very positive powers. They considered such abilities to be very strange in one so young, but in E-osu's case, also considered them to be a sign of unique greatness. After several more times of providing assistance, E-osu noticed that whenever he helped someone, they would immediately offer him some form of gratuity or later bring him a gift. Even his first victim, the elderly lady, brought him a beautiful, tightly woven, reed basket for his bedtime waste removal. As it began to dawn on his fellow Atlanteans that E-osu could lighten their loads; many would approach him for his aid with promises of reward or payment. Soon, E-osu began to acquire more goods and food than he would ever need. After months of assisting his people in their chores, the young women began to take note of his "wealth." E-osu started to notice that every time he would pass by a group of females; they would smile at him, flutter their eyes, and move in very suggestive ways. Often they would utter his name in a sing-song way. This very passionate, testosterone driven male, couldn't help notice some of the most beautiful females and occasionally he would feel a strange arousal. Often, in the morning, he would awaken with similar strong arousal. At the same time, E-osu began to notice that his concentration with the crystal was increasingly becoming distracted. Among the young women interested in enticing him, there was one incredibly beautiful girl named Pular that aroused his passion greatly. One day, E-osu was helping a young man lift a boulder when Pular passed by. He broke his concentration, and the boulder fell... almost crushing the young man's foot. E-osu was mortified. This "almost" harmful incident convinced him that he would have to renounce sexual desire if he was going to maximize his ability with the crystal. It wasn't an easy decision for him to make, but he knew that it was for the good of his community and would provide other forms of compensation. E-osu began a series of disciplines and mind altering sessions that would remove this form of interference. He became convinced of the success of 24
Return to TOC
his meditation when Pular came up to him to flirt, and he was able to remain “unmoved.” There was, however, one thing about the success of his meditations that bothered him. He was concerned about the effect his decision would have on eventually attracting a mate to assist him in daily duties such as food preparation. He overcame this conundrum when it became apparent that many of the people he was helping were all too eager to help. They would provide his everyday meals and whatever repair work he would ever need. In the meantime, Pular was so enamored of E-osu that she offered to live with him and take care of him without any sexual requirements. E-osu was grateful for her offer, but explained that it would be very unfair and unloving of him to prevent her from enjoying the fulfillment of total love. He always had some small regret for this, but rejoiced when Pular met another young man named Het, fell in love and joined with him as her mate. E-osu always had a special affection for Pular and Het. He spent many fond moments (when he had free time) with this family and their children. He lived long enough to also enjoy their grandchildren and great-grand children, and several future Adepts came from this family's offspring. Het did offer, at one time, (out of his great love and respect for E-osu), an opportunity to sleep with Pular. E-osu graciously declined, and no one involved was in any way offended. In his later days, E-osu often wondered what, if any, offspring might he have had? What would they have been like? His life, however, did give him many “sons,” even if none were from his own body. The work schedule for E-osu was becoming very heavy, and taxing. Over time, there were so many fellow community members who wanted "assistance", that he was getting continuously unable to fulfill their requests, no matter how much "reward" they promised him. There were also, other areas of Atlantean culture that he wished to pursue. So, after less than a month of contemplation, he realized that he would have to find others to help him. There was also the haunting question that needed to be answered; Was he the only one who could use the crystal? He needed to find out. ******************************
Return to TOC
E-osu developed a series of simple tests to administer to prospective candidates. Since time was important, he didn't want to test everyone, so he decided to test only every male, who had currently reached the age of thirteen. After all, that was when he became aware of his potential, so his logical mind stated that this would be a good place to start. He decided to choose only males for two reasons. First, they would be easier for him to understand and therefore to manage. Second, he was fearful of possible dangers, which might arise, from the female menstrual cycle. This was a great mystery to men and something they had feared for a very long time... long before anyone could remember. They knew that, during the menstrual cycle, many females would become irritable and often hostile. It became the custom for menstruating females to be placed in a “special” hut and remain there until their period was over. E-osu did not dare risk it. The potential of danger and damage was too great. He might be considered naive and chauvinistic by other standards, but this was a very deep fear among most ancient peoples. As things turned out, it eventually became clear that this was a wise move. It soon became apparent that his fellow community members, both male and female, were quite comfortable with whatever decisions E-osu made in choosing these candidates. The people of Atalan so admired him, they would eagerly have made E-osu their Headman if he had wished it so. E-osu knew that he could not handle both areas of responsibility given the demands already placed upon him. E-osu ended up selecting around 120 (10 from each tribal group) of the recently turned 13 year old males, and administered his test. He discovered that, on average, about one in ten had sufficient ability to warrant training. This would be a manageable number for him to begin. He also decided that, he would make it a policy to always choose at least one candidate from each Clan family. This process would serve as a way to distribute the responsibility evenly through the community. It would be good and practical politics as well. It soon became common awareness that E-osu was wise well beyond his years. These 12 candidates became the first initiates. It also became immediately obvious to E-osu, that he would need a space to 26
Return to TOC
train, feed and house his new trainees. At one of the communal gatherings, he requested an area of land, on an elevated plateau, about 3 miles northeast of the center of Atalan, near the base of Mt. Attus. This was a flat, grassy area about 2 square miles with a shallow river flowing nearby. His request was quickly granted, and on the plateau, which was awarded to him in perpetuity, he had his initiates construct a structure of wood and mud. He asked the initiates to build what might be considered a traditional teepee shape, the construction of which was learned in their European past. E-osu especially wanted to pay homage to the crystal's pyramidal shape, however, so he wanted the structure to be four sided instead of the traditional 13 pole teepee. No one had ever built a teepee this tall, so this required a small time of experimentation for stability. Four great trees, of similar girth, over 40 foot long, were cut and shaped to join at the top junctions of a 3 foot by three foot square opening. This opening was constructed of tree limbs to allow venting of smoke and air flow. A second square of poles united the pyramid's perimeter at the 25 foot level. A third set was placed at the 15 foot perimeter. Another set was constructed at the one foot from the bottom perimeter, to stabilize the base. One foot verticals were placed about every foot repeatedly between these poles and the ground. Openings at this base allowed a continuous air flow between the bottom and the top of the pyramid. An additional arrangement of straight limbs were placed like an X between all the higher pole levels for stability. The four outer tree trunks were sunk deep into the ground. The external area of the pyramid was completely covered with intertwining branches, rope like vines and then covered with a coating of strong weather resistant reddish mud. A small open platform was built in the roof grid, at the center, to hold an Atal Stone crystal to crown the top. A rope ladder would enable an initiate to climb all the way to the top to clean the crystal of any smoke detritus. The position of the crystal would allow it to focus both its and the sun's "energy" down upon the inhabitants inside. It also became the symbol of E-osu's "Place", as the crystal's brilliant reflection of sunlight could be seen from almost every point in Atalan. The structure was built so that the light of the rising sun would illuminate the interior and awaken the initiates from their sleep. Two ten foot high doors, at both East (for the rising sun) and West (for the setting sun), allowed exit and entrance. These were covered with movable, leather drapes to block the openings when inclement weather might occur. Tightly woven reed mats were attached to the interior up to the fifteen foot level both for insulation 27

The only ones left out were children (under puberty). then returning them to their freshly red painted grave. while the full moon illuminated their tops. This festival would forever become entrenched in human mythology as the Day of the Dead. The Dolphins would gather in vast numbers around these offerings. Harming any Dolphin was strictly forbidden. A yearly honorarium and festival occurred in their memory. One of the most beautiful Atlantean festivals was the Full Moon Festival. Small reed mats laden with fish and fruits would also be placed onto the gentle waters. ****************************** As mentioned earlier. consisted of filling lotus like flowers with a dab of beeswax containing a leather wick. They especially liked any fruit which had partially fermented. the Atlanteans would then celebrate their bounty with their own great communal feast of numerous dishes. The Dolphins would jump at and eat the fish (which had been harvested that same day) and even nibble on the floating fruit. The protection offered by the three land rings allowed the water near Atalan to remain reasonably calm. and would often spend their leisure moments preparing for festivals. 39 . After the Dolphins had their fill. Another festival revolved around the graves of all of the original settlers which had become a holy site. This process would begin as soon as the Dolphins started to settle down and disperse. and then gleefully drink a sweet liquid also made from various fermented fruit.Return to TOC where the Atlanteans would harvest them in their nets. who were herded off to bed and closely guarded by the very old.

whereupon both would let out a loud retort. remind everyone of this victory. which removed them from the mating ritual. and everyone would greet the new members of their family Clan. The Adepts were selected as soon as they reached puberty if they demonstrated any ability with the crystal. With the males. The Right of Passage was meant to be both competitive and good natured. so warfare and war-craft were not a main concern. leaders would need to be chosen.

Very few of the Adepts would attend the Virgin Festival. ****************************** Periodically. though they were not forbidden to do so.

The concept of war was essentially nonexistent among the people. spear throwing. there was the Right of Passage Festival. Nothing about it was intended to cause any physical harm. Which they wore proudly as long as the garland lasted. “The Great Council” was created. Later on. Because abstinence was suggested for maximum potential. an older female would pull her aside and explain the meaning of it. All the pubescent males entered various competitions to demonstrate their prowess in fishing. The "Snake Man" would make everyone laugh and enjoy themselves. Each member 41 . There was even a flatulence contest held out of view of the females that was extremely hilarious. most Adepts didn't wish to be tempted by the heavy erotic environment of the Virgin Festival. At first the representatives to this council were elected every ten years.
Now the Dolphins had the ability to sense the intelligence and wisdom of any Atlantean who swam against them. Very seldom were leaders chosen by the Dolphins to the regret of the winner's constituents. Lesser councils of 12 (selected on a yearly basis) also existed at the village level. These were always the runner ups in the Dolphin race. E-osu couldn't imitate their sounds and he didn't ever understand their spoken language. however.

He arranged a swimming race to be conducted between would be "leaders" and certain Dolphins. Any rules or laws were created by this select group. “The Dolphin Language” was a collective language with each Dolphin speaking only a part of what was being said. a person would become so loved by his constituents that they would continuously be selected to enter the Dolphin race. 42 . He did. E-osu discovered that the Dolphins gravitated around him as he walked along the beaches. the Great Council prevailed. However. Even losers accepted their fate without much animosity. as many older persons kept winning against younger entrants. Soon. E-osu came up with an idea for all the yearly "appointments" that was both wise and contrived. They would allow any person to win based on these two factors. they seldom complained. Many of these beloved leaders also ended up elected to the Great Council. he began to understand a little of what the Dolphins were trying to tell him. E-osu knew it was somewhat "rigged" but it was for a truly beneficial purpose. ****************************** The Dolphins Around the time of the development of the abilities associated with the blue crystal.

E-osu had learned to communicate with the Dolphins on a much easier and higher level. over 43 . A numerical process by which the next number was created by adding each new number to the previous number. (They did not. When all the Dolphins communicated with E-osu collectively. It eventually became understood by E-osu that these "Atlantean" Dolphins knew about the Atal Crystal. they eagerly absorbed his spiritual concepts. Many more basic image associations followed.Return to TOC What took place was. Numbers were announced by a repeated clicking sequence of one plus one equals two. E-osu started getting mental images from the Dolphins. E-osu noticed that any plural aspect had a kind of echo to it. A single click. zero was expressed as the deepest black E-osu could imagine. Soon E-osu had a primitive idea of how the Dolphins thought. that their extra-sensory abilities become much more noticeable. because this branch of Dolphins had ingested. and then a collective sound from a group of these amazing creatures. he received a complete image. All Human languages begin as mental pictures to which we associate sounds. however. In terms of imagery. Even sign language was originally linked to picture association. a very short hoot. The concept of zero was engendered in a sound E-osu considered associated with an unpleasant odor. which he took to mean more than one. another single click and then two clicks. He received images of water. They were aware that it was only when they were near Atlantis (and at one other location). A mathematical sequence similar to the way plants grow leaves up a stem. This awareness arose. When E-osu projected an image or group of images. Moreover. Then came other images: one of an individual dolphin and then a group of them with the associated sounds. he was able to convey basic images back to them. The Dolphins were especially interested in E-osu's land based knowledge and experiences. so the ability to bridge the gap in communication wasn't too great of a stretch for him to make. In turn. Two clicks plus one more equals three clicks then three clicks plus two clicks equals five. Within a month.

However. Unfortunately. Their genetic memory enabled the Dolphins to remember essentially everything of any significant consequence. E-osu put down into a pressed reed journal he had started to keep. These extinctions of various life forms were caused by many of these massive changes. When any individual Dolphin died. the Dolphin's vast collective. that they were once land animals themselves. genetic. distance was not a concept the Dolphins understood. The Dolphins expounded to E-osu.. The Dolphins didn't have any real sense of distance 45 . while Dolphin memories included deep water events. and only areas where they were comfortable and somewhat safe. huge numbers of creatures had come and gone. This fact was one that caused the Dolphins to consider the survivability of their knowledge. It seems that. It was an ongoing record of whatever he was to learn from these amazing aquatic creatures. that occurred in the world's oceans. by humanity's inability to understand what they were saying. One had left the land to seek its future in the sea. The Dolphins had no way of permanently recording their collected knowledge. however. Over the millennia. memory reminded them. their ability to find any location they had visited was not translatable to E-osu. they were always able to locate it again. The presence and writing capabilities of E-osu gave them great hope. a small part of its memory was lost if another Dolphin was unable to absorb it. and they were quite eager to unload whatever they knew to him. often. those were second hand from genetic relatives who inhabited those areas. some of their Ocean memories. The Atlantean Dolphins even had other relatives in the oceans of the world. who had chosen to take quite different paths. E-osu asked the Dolphins. Dolphins preferred coastal regions. since shortly after the Dolphins ancestors had entered the water. only through memory and the Spiritual Collective. Once the Dolphins had reached a location.

Moreover. nor did the Dolphins desire this. also had the ability of soul projection. The concept of the soul can only be acquired by a species that becomes self-aware. Then.

" Zarin’s Note: Towards the end of E-osu's life. they promised to give it to E-osu as he approached his life's end. The Dolphins also loved E-osu so much that they offered him a singular gift. as we might consider it. This knowledge had affected them very deeply. The Atlanteans had a somewhat similar approach to such behavior. the Dolphins did reveal the knowledge they had received from the Avatar Cephalopods in another solar system. They were not entirely sure how to explain it. but did have communal rules. E-osu was most grateful and said "he would make that decision sometime in the future. E-osu trusted the wisdom of the Dolphins. They believed that humanity was too young and unstable to have this knowledge. They would allow his spirit to join their collective upon his death. they were shunned by all the others. these revelations will come so that "only those who are willing to step into this awareness shall be exposed to it. an Epilogue. Their spirit was returned to their body and they were separated from the Collective.

After all. He considered all the Atlanteans as his relatives.. come back home and brag about their bravery. to catch one. They would leave the outcast in a small boat with food and water. They would then return to Atlantis leaving his/her fate up to their own personal resources." Once in awhile. the Dolphins renewed their singular honor of spiritual joining and E-osu decided to accept it. to sequester and then release him. This was the one inviolate rule. The only way the 12 families could cope with this killing paradox was to take the offender out as far from land as possible (the Atlanteans would not travel out of sight of land) into the deeper ocean. combined with both wisdom and the great love of both his people and the Dolphins. On rare occasions. the Atlanteans had no enemies. Often. No one on Atlantis ever went without as long as E-osu lived. His only regret was that he had no progeny. referring to them as the "Beast-Men. Whenever the wealth of the Adepts became excessive. If the returnee was a male (and they almost always were). a brave group of young testosterone driven males would foray into their area.

As he was approaching the last weeks of his life. there emerged a small population of individuals based on a limited male/female interaction. No man was permitted to kill another human under any circumstance. The resulting group of essentially antisocial individuals became unstable and highly violent. very stone age and extremely dangerous. combined with a benign climate. This behavior kept the groups small. The killing of another human being was forbidden. however. they were treated as if nothing had previously occurred. natural selection at work. one of these outcasts would manage to get back. he lived a good life.

His people would kneel about the hut and pray to the spirits of their ancestors. and numerous goods were burned to show the intense gratitude for E-osu's presence among them. He would assist the Dolphins in their future dealings with humanity and enable them in furthering diplomacy. Upon E-osu's death. 51 . Very soon. E-osu provided the Dolphins with deeper insight into the alien workings of technology. E-osu's spirit had been received into the Dolphin spiritual collective. was now totally available to him. your spirit went to when you died. so long as the Dolphins remained in contact with them. E-osu would always be aware of everything happening in Atlantis. but his spirit and all his memory would remain in the collective as long as this branch of Dolphins continued to breed. masses of flowers surrounded the entire hut. they all believed. By joining this spirit congress. where he could be close to the Dolphins upon his demise The people were amazed at the mass gathering of Dolphins that began to coalesce near this hut. The two remaining White adepts suggested that his body be placed into a sarcophagus. the Dolphins began to make a beautiful. carved of Atal stone crystal. E-osu would additionally be able to interact with the White adepts. Two separate species came together to celebrate their love for a single man. asking them to guide him to that peaceful place. The sight of the large numbers of both Atlanteans and Dolphins gathered in the presence of this dying man was a testament to how greatly both species valued him.Return to TOC requested that a small hut be built next to the water. It was an event that never occurred again in human history. The death of E-osu threw the entire population of Atlantis into a prolonged period of grieving. human perception and emotional understanding. Great fires were lit. more and more of his people would come and lay flowers and garlands outside his bed chamber. E-osu was physically dead. and grief that existed now he was gone. As E-osu lay dying. all of it. exist and the collective remained intact. It was very obvious that the Dolphins loved E-osu. harmonic clicking. and that the original pyramid be abandoned as a domicile and turned into a tomb to honor this great man. He could also be kept aware of everything that was happening to Atlantis. and they would tell their children how beautiful this gathering was. Everyone one who was there would always remember it. Something no Atlantean had ever seen or heard before.
The multitudes of Atlantis would gather to hear it and quite often it would bring tears to many eyes. The people had such a reverence for E-osu that they added a prefix to his name. and great commerce would be held with the Dolphins. E-osu would not have approved. though it was apparent that it never became as clear as an unused crystal. E-osu's tomb could be seen gleaming in the sunlight from far out at sea. the Atlantean name for the sun. E-osu had compiled a journal and had many. at every year's end. One of the Blue Adepts was instructed to gather up E-osu's personal things and take them to the Library for storage. one of the White Adepts would approach the Dolphins and give them a rehash of the year's events. He would now become forever known as El E-osu. Its top would be crowned by the largest pyramidal crystal ever carved. They would then begin a five to six-day celebration with food and fermented drink. Running and swimming contests would be held. the people would throw the greatest festival of them all. at least. It became a beacon to anyone out in the nearby ocean. E-osu did not have many personal objects. On the final day. Abundant gifts of food and fish would be brought down to them. It would later become several times enlarged. eventually made of stone and faced in a gleaming white marble. Once the life had passed from E-osu's body. if he could have foreseen where this would take his people. that to give him the additional name for the sun would become his greatest accolade. His tomb would become the temple of El. E-osu was such a bright light to his people. During the 5-6 days of E-osu. It was noticed that his crystal lost its color and became almost clear. Unbeknownst to the other Adepts. but there was the journal and his other records. that all of this was the beginning of their first attempt at creating a deity. Only the White Adepts knew that E-osu was still there and listening to them.Return to TOC In the process of placing E-osu's body in the crystal sarcophagus. They would make gifts for friends and family and exchange them. The full effect of this process would not be known for a long time. ****************************** 52 . numerous sketches and papers around his domicile. He would now be referred to as El. so one would assume. a strange fact was noticed. Only at this time of the year would the Dolphins sing their "special" song. as well. These would at least be kept safe in the Library. the power of his crystal apparently abandoned his headband. Little did the Atlanteans know.
One of these psychic males was actually related to E-osu through one of his sisters. prophetic viewpoints. the people would gravitate to his unique. and a site chosen for the building of a residence/school. that there seemed to be a correlation between the birth under a given constellation overhead. Was this a statistical fluke. a Council of Seers was created. Tarus could be considered a genius of a different sort. A strange alliance between the Adepts and the Seers soon emerged. that had the ability to sense what might happen in the future. Tarus developed his knowledge to the point of explaining the appearance of freaks among animals. He was very close to the Adept school where the movement of the heavenly bodies was being studied. they became associated with the Sun. There was also a group of Shaman-like males called Dreamers. He even noticed that more adepts where born during the 5-6 year-end days of E-osu than that of any of the month long constellations. They were also very prophetic and were also.

Malik was being groomed to assume the mantle of E-osu. There was no sense of superiority by him towards anyone. Malis would take his place. He went to several of the healer women. No one could suspect Malis of any complicity. E-osu would have been appalled at this. he would never be able to rival E-osu. They wanted to embrace this philosophy of superiority engendered by Malis within their ranks. A growing number of the young Adepts wanted to be treated with greater deference by the rest of the people. Malis. intermittently over the year. They would recommend various roots and prepare extracts from plant and sea sources. suggested that he not do any climbing after three hours of taking it. If this happened.

It had to be flawless. What he feared was the natural tendency of leaders to distance themselves from the concerns of the people who chose them. often the viewpoint of Malik was being taken seriously at the Great Council. Malis would always ask if there were any after effects he should be careful to avoid. His brother was loved by the Atlanteans as he was not. A decision he never regretted.

Malik would be tenuously moving through an area of the mountain. An additional bonus to his plan was that no one would ever have any reason to suspect Malis of complicity. He never tended to show any deference to Malik. almost. Malik enjoyed the attention of his brother and it never could occur to him that Malis might have any malicious intentions. Malik's broken corpse was brought back to Atalan to be mourned by both his fellow adepts and the general community of his countrymen. Upon giving his brother the beverage with its additional ingredient. however. to the same elderly woman that Malis had also seen. Malis knew that after the morning breakfast and drink were completed. These paths up into the mountain were extremely precarious. She there upon offered a larger amount of the medicine to Karos to administer in case there were any other " headaches" among his Adepts.

Everyone assumed it was only some fresh attempt by Malis to become friendlier with his sibling..

This often demonstrated a concern for the growth of "friendship. the only true criminal act in Atlantean law. one as talented as Malis.

He did note that it was the normal practice for Malis not to partake of any tea in the morning. Karos wanted to be entirely fair in this matter as this would be the first time in Atlantean history an Adept would be accused of murder. Most often. Unforeseen and uncontrollable consequences might ensue. there were four White Adepts: Karos. This was a most delicate and extremely dangerous area to enter. and keep it quietly within only the highest ranks of Adept Society. commented that: "Malis had begun to offer Malik a beverage of tea.

Upon entering the small and sparsely furnished room. Something extremely important was going to take place. "yes!" came from Malis' lips. The obviously weak A-aat then deferred to Karos. A-aat continued: " It has been made apparent to us.

Then Kulum suddenly and angrily interjected: "This is not proof of any complicity in Malik's death. He readily agreed. A visit to A-aat was a singular honor. Little did Malis know. "Did you not receive additional information from this healer that this remedy should not be taken before any activity. Malis was asked to come and see A-aat." Malis was terribly confused now. A-aat's wisdom was extensive and to be requested to a private encounter. A light sweat began to form on his forehead. Malis approached the residence with eager anticipation. Where are they going with this? How did this information come to them? He thought. "What did this have to do with him. A-aat weakly spoke first. absolutely. where upon.

"What else could they possibly know and how could they have known it?" he considered. They were thoroughly and completely astonished. Malis thought? P-aton then interjected: "I sense he is lying. "Did you not begin the new activity of bringing a morning drink to your brother soon after you received this remedy from the healer?" Karos interjected. How would they prove this. then strangely asked: "Did you love your brother?" Here. All the pent up jealousy and hatred he had for Malik rose up within him. More is yet to be revealed. an evil beyond any of their comprehension.Return to TOC Karos. He was guilty of murder. Malis left visibly shaken. Malis did not verbally respond to Quatal's question. "Be patient Master Kulum. Malis had broken the inviolate rule. who had remained silent throughout the questioning." A deep silence fell over the group. they knew all the details about his murder plot. I see him removing some material from a small leather bag and placing into his brother's cup and then giving it to him. Karos took a moment to pause and then asked Malis to leave the room and have a seat outside. and they knew it now. who was the second oldest White Adept glared at Kulum. This encounter was becoming less an honor. It was as if Malis was possessed by a purely evil spirit. Somehow. and now he realized it was a trial. "No!" he exclaimed. but it was answered none the less. Karos then asked: "Did you place this material into Malik's drink. something welled up in him that was uncontrollable. the morning before your group traveled up Mt Attu? And did you knowingly hand this contaminated liquid to your brother?" This time Malis paused. if he denied it. Quatal. This was something they had never seen in all their very long lives. The 68 .

Again a definitely startled "yes!" Things were not looking good to Malis.

It is my sincere belief that Malis has broken the inviolate rule and caused the death of his brother. due to his severe despair over his brother's death. His ego immediately recognized the benefits of a private execution. all of his life. He asked: "Does the punishment of Malis need to become public?" Kulum stated: " A public trial and conviction at the Great Council always takes place.” Karos believed he had a workable solution. which he quickly agreed to. Upon Malis' departure from the room. The order will become untrustworthy. we must all agree that Malis is guilty. Just us four White Adepts and P-aton will escort him. and representatives of the public are always present as the convicted individual is taken out into the deep Ocean. gone outside the three barrier rings and probably got caught up in some sort of aberrant undercurrent. "We will let Malis determine. "This event." "Yes! That is true" exclaimed A-aat. whether to make this a public trial or volunteer to go to the Deep Ocean alone. who was not a member of the Adept Society. “but there has never been an Adept accused of murder.

none of them were realistic or remotely acceptable. Malis was absolutely certain that neither he nor the other two occupants of the larger vessel could determine the direction of Atlantis. However. This journey would not appear unusual to anyone who knew him. on this occasion. Malis played his role of despondent brother well. would never be noticed. This was the only "honorable" way out for Malis. Karos had deemed that it was unnecessary for the other White Adepts to be there. there were large fires alight upon tall stone towers located on both sides of the outer ring. although "honor" could hardly be associated with him. His departure in this vessel.not unlike the one held for his brother. Suddenly. The larger boat was sailed outside the rings by P-aton. Malis could not see any of these lights. Malis would then be celebrated at a funeral . but moved it 70 . to guide stragglers back home. The smaller vessel. was towed far out into the Deep Ocean. Karos could often be seen with P-aton out communing with the Dolphins late at night. Two boats went out from Atlantis into the Deep Waters. at an opening near a deeply wooded area not likely to have unexpected spectators. Besides. Malis witnessed Karos lift the boat high up from the water and move in a direction he knew could not be correct. He had lifted it high enough to see the guide fires. it was released with Malis alone on it. so how could Karos and P-aton? How would they get back? Were they purposely sacrificing their lives to insure that he would also die? His death must be of paramount importance if both men were willing to do this. Although he did consider other options. Karos was both lifting the vessel and moving it forward. this lie against a lie. The larger boat then turned around to go back towards where Malis suspected Atlantis must lay. but the disappearance of all four was more likely to seem out of the ordinary. The night of his "death" came shortly. also. When they had towed the small boat as far out as Karos dared. The joint departure was on the western side of the rings. At night. Stones that he might use to cast. P-aton liked to gather rare stones on the outer beaches. in the moonlight. from which the sail and oars had been removed.

No one would notice the departure of one White Adept.Return to TOC it was entirely believable. Karos. there was one other passenger.
This procedure was necessary so Atlanteans themselves would not violate the murder law by also directly killing the murderer.

Soon. carried far out to sea. The other current comes out from the Caribbean Sea and splits into another two currents. Now there were two currents that passed near Atlantis. This. Atlantis' massive size and position blocked much of the water flow that currently warms the Northern borders of the Atlantic Ocean. 71 . This current traveled a circuitous route carrying tremendous moisture to the southern areas of Atlantis. then onward to Northern Africa. Malis got caught up in this weaker flow towards the northern areas of Atlantis. As he had no oars or sail. but even Malis understood its intent. Malis' fate was now in his hands alone. he was unable to direct or control the ship in the flow of this current. The question was.Return to TOC in such a zigzag way so that Malis could not determine how to get back. might it be possible to live. Malis could not see the boat at all. the most powerful. down around the western coast of this immense continent joining a parallel current originating from the Southern Atlantic Ocean around Northern Antarctica and then back up the eastern side of South America to continue the cycle. and returned to full membership in the society.

It was not a pleasant death. additionally. he could find a way to survive his current situation.
Return to TOC which direction to go in? He was adrift in a vast ocean of water with no land or feature in sight in any direction. The Dolphin did not seem uncomfortable at all and actually appeared eager to help Malis. The Dolphin suddenly made an abrupt change in direction and started taking the boat to where Malis was mentally sending it. it became a permanent guidepost to any persons or ships that made their way North. The Dolphin approached the vessel several times. This could be easily compared to what he looked like in life. it didn't actually fit E-osu's profile.. It was said to contain his face and was created after he died. if so. which was partially true. Malis held on and let the Dolphin take the boat with it. On the vast western side of the long mountain chain were thick forests. It wasn't terribly long before a landscape of mountains and greenery started to appear. however. lying on his back and looking to the North were common. Although Malis had never seen this part of Atlantis. Malis used his Blue Adept ability to take the weight of the boat off the Dolphin. The areas of Atlantis north of Mt. A year after E-osu died.

Was it being ostracized for aberrant behavior? Just as he was? This would be a very strange coincidence. entirely akin to how Malis was also feeling at the moment. The ship traveled easily along with the Dolphin's movement. Its removal created most of what appeared to be a face. however. on either side of the Continent..

Malis was ready to put his army of powerful Mutag warriors into action. Popular methods of sacrifice were either by drowning. He had trained a few of the more intelligent. The Mutags were terribly afraid of the ocean. Malis imploded them from the inside out. and they were not befriended by the Dolphins. It could be said that the Mutag men "loved" Malis in a way peculiar to them. These deaths were designed to satisfy the blood lust of Mutag's two male deities.

north, where the "Beast Men" reside." "The Beast Men!" exclaimed a surprised Karos. "What have we to fear from them?" "Malis lives", stated E-osu. "MALIS? That's impossible!" returned Karos. "I personally escorted him, far out into the deepest ocean, well out of sight of land. How could he have survived?" "A powerful current drove his vessel up to and very near the northern areas, then an aberrant Dolphin assisted him in making contact with land", admitted E-osu. "You must have received this knowledge from the Dolphins somehow, did you not?" stated Karos. "Yes!" returned E-osu. "You are very perceptive, which is why I have chosen to speak directly to you. Malis cruelly murdered this Dolphin, but unknown to him, all Dolphin spirits return to the collective spirit of their pods upon their deaths." E-osu explained. 'And so does all their memory." He added. "What must I do?" inquired Karos. "Malis is planning something, which we have no access to. You must discover what it is and protect the people, AT ANY COST! I sense that great danger and disastrous change is about to come upon all of us, including myself and this spiritual collective into which I am now joined. I implore you, Karos. You MUST save us.!" Whereby, the voice of E-osu faded and disappeared..."Save us... Save..." "I'll do everything in my power", whispered Karos. “Everything”, he again thought. Malis was alive, and now Karos knew it. He rushed back to gather with the other Whites. They would have to create a strategy to address this crisis. The entire matter had to be kept within the circle of the White Adepts. The rest of the Adepts and the people could not know of the complicity of the Whites in Malis' death scenario. The fact that Malis had survived, was still alive and living in the unexplored north, would only add to his mystique. 78
Return to TOC
The people would consider him special to Fate and Destiny, which they look to as strange mysterious forces always at work. The people always believed that Fate and Destiny brought their ancestors here in the first place. Karos, who was a logical and practical man, always believed it was a happy accident. Now, with all that has happened, he wondered if there were forces at work unknown to him? The biggest problem facing the Whites was, what was Malis up to? Karos rushed to visit P-aton in his hut, which it was never his custom to do. He normally would seek him out at the Council of Seers. P-aton immediately sensed something was seriously wrong. "What is on your mind my friend?" P-aton asked. "Malis is still alive." he shouted. The shock on P-aton's face was the most intense expression Karos had ever seen on him. "Where is he?" spurted P-aton. "E-osu spoke to me directly this evening and told me, he had miraculously made it to the north among the "Beast Men." added Karos. "Maybe the Beast Men killed him!" "No, the Dolphins had seen him with the "Beast Men" at their villages along the eastern beaches." "The Beast Men" have grown in numbers large enough to have villages", sputtered P-aton? "Apparently", retorted Karos! Karos took a long pause and then asked. "With your insight and clairvoyant gifts, might you be able to tell me what Malis is up to?" P-aton paused and took a deep breath. "I would have to perform a singularly special, extremely rare, and most private ritual, but it is possible... to send my mind there and take a look around. There might be prolonged and dangerous consequences, however. Sadness came into Karos' eyes. "I wouldn't want any harm to come to you, 79
Return to TOC
my friend; but, E-osu requested that we be willing to do all that is possible to resolve this crisis.” "I will do what is necessary", injected P-aton. "Goodbye, my dear friend, I shall pray to the four winds, that you may be protected from all harm." With these final words, Karos began to leave, but hesitated, turned back to look at his friend and then abruptly departed. P-aton was positive that he had caught the glint of tears in Karos eyes. "Goodbye!...my friend." whispered P-aton. Over the millennia of the existence of P-aton's ancestors, whenever a serious crisis occurred; a shaman, seer or healer would prepare for a highly esoteric ritual. Its' purpose was a desperate attempt at finding a solution. One that often lead to permanent mental impairment and even death. It required ingesting two unique ingredients. One that opened the mind and released the spirit, the other was to ease what would be intensive pain. P-aton had washed his body and purified it with the smoke from a special herb. Everyone was instructed not to disturb him, under any circumstances, until morning. Also, P-aton had sent a message to Karos to come to his hut, promptly by first light. This was necessary in case P-aton might become seriously impaired by this ritual. P-aton sat down upon a tightly woven fresh reed mat. The room was totally dark except for a small wax candle nearby. A selection of very sharp obsidian blades could be seen close by the candle. P-aton began an ancient chant. He picked up one of the blades and began to make cuts all over his body. These were deep blood gushing gashes. Soon his body was covered in a Robe of Blood. Both drugs also kicked in. The pain killer, if it was working, seemed to have no effect, the pain was so intense that nothing seemed to dull it. Suddenly, there was a brilliant flash of light in P-aton's mind and the pain disappeared. P-aton could see his body covered in blood, but the dim candlelight was now the brightest light, outside the sun, he had ever seen. P-aton walked towards the wall of his hut and passed right thru it. The moon's light made the outside look as it would in the daytime. P-aton's body suddenly rose up from the ground and was traveling over the Atlantean landscape at a rapid speed. He was moving to where he needed to 80
Return to TOC
go, north to the lands of the "Beast Men". Unbeknownst to everyone else, time doesn't exist when a spirit goes into this astral state. It is possible to go both backward and forward in time without any real time passing. P-aton traveled to the region where it was believed the "Beast Men" lived. He was amazed at the number of villages. There were a few that were larger than many in the south. What was going on here? No one suspected there could be this many of their "lost" brethren. He quickly searched each village for the presence of Malis. Finally, he located the object of his quest. Malis was outside with a group of uncommonly large men gathered around him. He was telling them, that the moment had come for the conquest of the South. P-aton also noticed that other individuals were practicing with various weapons. Weapons he had never seen before. Malis had created an invasion army. He must immediately get back to tell Karos this vital information. Returning to his body, he felt the arms of Karos lifting him up. "Wake up, my good friend", implored Karos! "Wake up! Please!" Karos was shocked by all the blood. There was so much that he was having difficulty holding onto P-aton. P-aton felt terribly weak. He opened his eyes. The Seer wasn't sure how much time he would have... to tell Karos what must be told. With weak effort, P-aton managed to speak."Malis has...built a force...(struggling) of the "Beast Men"... called Mutags. These "Mutags" exist...(a gasp) in huge numbers....we never suspected. They are.... very large ..powerful. Malis has given.... weapons. ..trained them....knowledge, I...I...I am not familiar... We have nothing....(exclaiming)...no warriors... that could stop them"....P-aton reached up and desperately grabbed at Karos, placing streaks of blood on Karos' face. "You must!... must... the Adepts!" as he tried to get out these final words, P-aton died in Karos arms. Karos was both stunned and saddened. He had just lost his most valued friend and discovered that Atlantis was in the gravest danger. Karos held the body of P-aton for what seemed an Eternity. To the point that Karos was also covered with blood. He removed himself from the ritual place and went to a nearby stream to wash off the blood. There was a part of him that wanted to continue to wear it as a tribute to his friend, but Karos realized: to travel to the Adept areas covered in blood, would cause many tongues to wag. It 81

He knew that Juros would agree with him and that as his "best friend" he hoped Juros would assist him in achieving his goals. if it would gain him any advantage. Juros lost weight and wouldn't attend the morning meditations. Juros had been devastated when he received the report of Malis' probable death. "The Great Headman desires that you inform him. "Why would he want to attack his own people?" The agents were able to derail Juros' fears by telling him that Malis was extremely unhappy with the way things were going within the Adept Society.

Malis was taken aback. shoot arrows at and bash any Dolphin over the head. when they wished to send messages over long distance. where these smoke signals could be easily seen by another Mutag observer.

Juros was now proud that he would be contributing to the end of all this stupidity on the part of the Adepts. Which the frightened Mutags promptly obeyed. There upon. Juros had overheard his name mentioned by both Karos and Kulum and that he was alive in the North among the "beast men. when burned.

What he had learned from the Dolphins made him not fear death. they would offer it the same option as they had E-osu.. E-osu did not know what to make of it. it was agreed by the Dolphins that when. a human spirit of the magnitude of E-osu's ever came to their attention.a concept difficult to comprehend.. each Dolphin became more animal like and their baser instincts were more likely to be expressed. All this influx of the spirits of dead or dying Dolphins was devastating to the collective. that any spirit without a living body. and the living spirits would return to their bodies and become singular. E-osu heard the cries and anguish of the dying Dolphins. before the dissolution occurred. the collective could dissolve. What would cause them to do such a despicable thing? This had to be Malis' doing. not just the Mutags. The problem was. each one a searing rift in the collective's cohesion. The Dolphins did not embrace war but would not take this violation of their life lightly. The War of the Dolphins began first. Would the Dolphins receive another human spirit into their collective.

Yes.
The Dolphins no longer assisted anyone in the gathering of fish. Karos and the other two Whites (A-aat had passed away from the stress) and the yellow Adepts did take what fishing boats were left. lifted them up to hover in the air and then moved them out to the deeper ocean to cast their nets for whatever they could quickly catch.

What did remain intact were elements of the final spiritual conclusion the Alien Cephalopods had given them. The Adepts had become totally useless. gave up their war and coalesced back into their spiritual collective. No one could go swimming. which could only occur at specific times. where game was plentiful. Their powers were primarily used to lift objects. When the collective had reformed. They smashed or burned most of their effigies. The Atlanteans now began killing any Dolphins who came near the beaches. Dolphins would use their "sonar" to stun people and drown them by pulling them under the water. The Dolphins could not reach these ships because their sonar was ineffective after a few feet in the air. no one would venture near the water. Soon there was so little food. The Atlanteans were afraid to venture further north. some of the people approached Amalek and asked for his help. There was still small game and fruits with some limited grains. they retained only the knowledge held by the living members (each held a part). because of the Mutag presence there. but fishing and other sea products were the main food source. This War set the stage for all subsequent events. Drinking water became difficult to get in some areas.
"Atlantis was a paradise". Amalek spoke: "These Gods require sacrifice to gain their help". Some of the people had turned to Amalek for help. The country was devastated by hunger and thirst. "Soon these desperate beings had carved much larger stone images of them and built Altars before them. sit back and be slaughtered?

The Adepts had lost the love of their people. he continued. Which they reluctantly did. he went to the estranged followers of this madman and in an impassioned plea. Malis caused this War with the Dolphins. Only this would satisfy them. If you do not do this. everything will get much worse. people will buy ANY idea if they believe that they have no other choice. as it was burned alive. The animal's suffering." When Karos heard of this demand by Amalek. Malis was on the march. he implored. repulsed them. Even many of his own Adepts and several Great Council members as well had turned to Amalek. that enabled him to create this Mutag menace. At first the people following Amalek were shocked.Return to TOC Desperation Karos had a vision in his sleep. they would have rushed upon it. It was Amalek's secret teachings to Malis.

Karos felt that he must minimize whatever influence Malis would have over Atlantis at this one showdown. by Malis' spies. They were forming a society of their own and had occupied the Great Council structure which gave these "traitors" a semblance of legitimacy.

The end of everything E-osu had believed and desired for his people. and there was little Karos could do to prevent it. The attrition rate among the weakest was extremely high. Malis wanted Juros to get Karos to trust him. A hierarchy was forming. He was readying the people of Atlantis for the arrival of Malis and all that Malis stood for. He instinctively knew that he was not going to survive this coming confrontation. especially Karos. but the remaining White. They were also now accepting new initiates. was at hand.

Most likely to keep an eye on what was happening there. if even a White Adept could be so treacherous?" Thought Karos. Karos had chosen the hills overlooking the Plain of Parmal just northeast of 90 . Amalek was preparing the Capital for his son to arrive with his Mutag army and be declared headman of All of Atlantis. Karos went to the remaining Adepts and asked them to pile up large amounts of immense boulders. His forces were too small to spread out over any great distance. near the area he expected Malis' Army to appear. "What had become of E-osu's legacy. He had essentially gone over to Amalek. Kulum was still with Karos. He egged on the stronger males to take whatever they wanted from all the others. and a number of the Adepts had gone over to Amalek. although he remained on the proximity of the Society Headquarters. not just the Mutags.

Humanity would have to regain their trust and it would take many centuries for this to re-occur. sadly. This Dolphin pod would leave the vicinity of the three rings and go out into the Deep Ocean. There were some pottery stores of dried and salted items at the Society Headquarters. The Dolphins quickly communicated all that had happened. Karos traveled down to one of the more out of the way beaches around Atalan trying to find the Dolphins. How they had dissolved the former Collective. however. which was most abhorrent to them. Karos was very happy to see them. but much of this. that he knew death and was gone forever.

The Dolphins did communicate to Karos that their war was over. Karos accepted this wisdom and wished them well as they departed. What remained was severely rationed. The new Collective recognized him and came up to him. E-osu would have wept for all time. they would not embrace the human race as strongly as they once did. Karos became saddened when he learned that E-osu was no longer among them. they would not be seen within the rings for a long time. Karos sensed that this new Collective was decidedly different from the former one. They would not go far from Atlantis. who had no bodies to return to. if he could have witnessed what was happening.

The Lost Journals
After his first encounter with the Dolphins, E-osu decided to keep a record of the information he received from them and to record whatever knowledge he had acquired during his journey with these magnificent Cetaceans. He also chose to record observations on the Crystal, the Adepts, the Observatory and the Library as well. This journal carries the information E-osu learned from the Dolphins concerning the spiritual concepts that they received from the alien Avatars from the solar system near the galactic center. This was of such a profound nature that the Dolphins withheld it from E-osu until shortly before his death. This epilogue also carries information from the journals of later incarnations of E-osu as understanding and awareness of much of the information had grown. Dolphin revelations are only a part of what E-osu recorded in his journal, and much of it has been channeled and is within this book. As related in the Third Book, Atlantis-Destruction, there is a possibility that the clay tablet records of E-osu's Journal, which were placed aboard Zoran's Ark; might possibly still exist... buried in some ancient site somewhere near modern day Turkey.
