Atlantis and Mu, or "Where I Went On My Summer Vacation"

For a summer change of pace from my usual thoughts on business and politics, I'd like to offer a vacation suggestion. Why not visit the prehistoric sites of ancient Atlantis and Mu? If you're interested, I'll tell you how to do it. This weekend, I'm attending a New Age conspiracy conference in tiny Crestone, Colorado, and I'll be sharing this same information in a lecture there. I'll be representing my publisher, The Invisible College Press.

I want you to imagine the equator around the earth. It forms something called a horizon ring. A horizon ring can be any circle around the earth, as long as it takes in the full circumference of the globe. Can you visualize what I'm describing? Now imagine a horizon ring, inclined thirty degrees to the equator. That means tilted up from the equator. Imagine that it passes through both the Great Pyramid in Egypt as well as the ancient city of Mohenjo Daro which is in the Indus Valley of Pakistan. Incredibly, if you follow this same horizon ring completely around the earth, it will precisely pass through almost every major site of extremely early archeological significance on the planet. The list is nothing less than extraordinary: Perseopolis, the capital city of ancient Persia... the lost city of Petra... the ancient Sumarian city of Ur... Angkor Wat in Cambodia, where all the spectacular beehive temples are located... both Machu Picchu and the glyphs of Nasca in Peru... Easter Island, and also in the South Pacific, an island named Anatom Island in the Republic of Vanuatu. It used to be called the New Hebrides.

As you study the features along this horizon ring, you'll find that Anatom Island is exactly, and I mean exactly, halfway between Easter Island and Angkor Wat. And here's something else you'll find. I concerns Mohenjo Daro in the Indus Valley. It's exactly antipodal to Easter Island. Saying that places are antipodal means they're perfectly located opposite each other on the globe, like the North and South Poles. You won't believe the precision of these alignments. Easter Island is only a dozen kilometers long. And there's an ancient city in the Indus Valley, never even been excavated, mind you, it's named Ganweriwala. And it's just a dozen kilometers east of Mohenjo Daro. Ganweriwala and Mohenjo Daro are precisely antipodal to a pair of high volcanic peaks at the opposite ends of Easter Island. The precision of this couldn't even be recognized until the advent of the computer and GPS technology.

So if you want to rub elbows with the New Agers seeking to touch a piece of the past, just get out a globe of the world. Draw a line between Giza in Egypt and Petra in Jordan, then extend this line around the world as a horizon ring, and go visit every ancient site that is located on the ring. If you're reading this in the United States, you might want to start with Machu Picchu since it's the closest ancient location. And after you've visited every site around the world, here's the last thing that you should know. You will have passed over Atlantis and Mu, because wherever they are, they certainly are on the ancient alignment ring.

So there you have it, "The Alignment" Easter Island, the Pyramids, Machu Picchu, Petra, and all of the most ancient and important archeological sites in the Mideast and lower Asia, all within one-tenth of one degree of a perfect horizon ring, all on a straight line around the center of the earth. My theory is that wherever Atlantis and Mu may have been located, their positions would have been aligned on this same horizon ring. In the case of Atlantis, I even have a theory about where that might be. Of all the possible sites for ancient Atlantis proposed by the experts, only one lies on the alignment ring. It's a remote location in the Atlantic Ocean where there are presently no islands, but a very ancient document known as the Piri Reis Map shows a large island in this precise spot. And recent geologic core samples taken from the floor of the sea in this spot are composed of continental type rock, rather than oceanic type rock which should be the case. Probably Atlantis once existed here, if it existed at all.

Such a position for Atlantis would be antipodal to a remote point in the highlands of Irian Jaya, far up to the north along the unexplored chain of mountains that runs up from Papua New Guinea. The people there tell of a legend in their culture about an extensive stone city well to the north, high in the remote mountains, now long abandoned and forever lost to the jungle. They called this place, "Mu". Unlike Atlantis, which long ago disappeared, this site called "Mu" is still in existence on dry land. For that perfect summer getaway, why not go there? Then you can come back and publish a travel article to help defray the cost of your trip. I know from firsthand experience that such a trip would cost you about $9,000, and an article (see my blog of 5/24) will net you about $250. What a deal!
