Indonesia – Show #8

Theorists have recently proposed a massive explosion of Krakatoa, which opened the Sunda Strait and separated the islands of Java and Sumatra in Indonesia, also triggered the end of the last Ice Age by covering glaciers with a layer of soot (fly ash), precipitating a meltdown by increasing the absorption of sunshine.

An ancient fiery explosion that caused a giant tsunami and ravaged lowlands is widely attested in all myths and traditions, such as those concerning Atlantis and Paradise.  It is universally remembered as the explosion of the Mountain of Paradise (Atlas, Sinai, Zion, Alborj, Qaf, Golgotha, Meru) and of the deluge it caused, of which native peoples all speak obsessively as the Universal Flood and the Universal Conflagration.

The glacial meltwaters flowed into the oceans, raising sea-levels and causing tremendous strains and stresses in the crust of the earth, which cracked in the weak spots, engendering further volcanic eruptions and earthquakes. The result was the dramatic end of the Ice Age and the so-called Quaternary Extinctions.

One of the interesting theories about the rapid meltdown of the Ice Age glaciers involves Indonesia – and an absolutely massive volcanic explosion that deposited a layer of soot across the ice surface, effectively trapping the heat from the sun, as well as suffocating many animal species overnight while also killing off plant life.  This catastrophic event could have been precipitated by a tectonic shifting of the crust, and a shifting of the poles, or an impact event. 

According to anthropologists, and various other scientists and scholars today, the Sunda Shelf was once a continent.  Adding to their dry observations are the various researchers and theorists who speculate that a civilization evolved on the shelf – but, when the shelf collapsed long ago, was eventually submerged and lost.  In the wake of recent events, geologists are clearly supporting catastrophe theories to explain migrating populations across the Pacific over time.

According to modern explorer and author David Hatcher Childress, the continent of Mu was lost forever over 26,000 years ago during a pole shift, and a racial mixture later repopulated the Pacific – coming from Rama, China, Africa and the Americas.  Thereafter an advanced island nation, with much larger land areas to cultivate than are currently in the Pacific, grew up and evolved further (see Atlan.org) to become known as Poseid, or Atlantis.  Legends abound across Polynesia that actually attribute this civilization to the mysterious Aroi Kingdom that existed many thousands of years before the later western European “discovery” of the Pacific islands, and was they who built the megalithic pyramids, platforms, arches, roads and statues throughout the Pacific, such as those at the base of newer temples on Easter Island.

Significantly, it was claimed by the great Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu that the Elders of Lemuria, also known as the Thirteenth School of Mu, moved their headquarters prior to the cataclysm to the uninhabited plateau of Central Asia that we now call Tibet.  Here they supposedly established a library and school known as The Great White Brotherhood.  Lao Tzu, born in 604 B.C., talked frequently of Ancient Masters and their profound wisdom.  When he finally left China near the close of his very long life, he journeyed to the west to the legendary land of Hsi Wang Mu, the headquarters of the Ancient Ones; indeed the Great White Brotherhood and the Thirteenth School of Mu.

Ancient China, known as Han China, is said to have come, like all civilizations, from the Pacific continent Mu.  The ancient Chinese are known for the sky-chariots, geomancy, and the jade manufacture that they shared with the Mayas.  (Indeed, the ancient histories of the Chinese and the Mayas seem indelibly linked.)

The ancient Chinese are often said to be the originators of every invention from toilet paper, earthquake detectors, paper money, cannons, rocket technology, printing methods, and thousands of other clever and high-tech items.  In 1959, archaeologists in China discovered belt buckles made thousands of years ago out of aluminium.  Aluminium is generally processed from bauxite with electricity!

As in Mu and Atlantis, ancient construction in South America was also on megalithic scale where innovative polygonal stone-shaping techniques were designed and used to make their massive walls earthquake-proof.
