Atlantis Discovered?

The search for Atlantis just got a boost when Google Earth began providing images of the ocean floor. Perfect crisscross lines on the ocean floor just to the west of the Canary Islands sparked a furor of discussion on the Internet. Could these be ancient roadways and therefore evidence that Atlantis did exist?

Is this Atlantis?
February 20, 2009
This is the amazing image which could show the fabled sunken city of Atlantis. It shows a perfect rectangle the size of Wales lying on the bed of the Atlantic Ocean nearly 3½ miles down. A host of criss-crossing lines, looking like a map of a vast metropolis, are enclosed by the boundary. They seem too vast and organised to be caused naturally. The site lies 620 miles off the west coast of Africa near the Canary Islands - a location for Atlantis seemingly suggested by the ancient philosopher Plato. He believed it was an island civilisation sunk by an earthquake and floods around 9,700BC - nearly 12,000 years ago. The "grid" showed up on Google Ocean, a Google Earth extension that uses a combination of satellite images and marine surveys.

Google quickly issued an explanation, claiming the lines were tracks left by underwater boats mapping the ocean floor.

Google Earth: We haven't found Atlantis
February 20, 2009
Hopes that the lost city of Atlantis had been found on Google Earth were shattered today. Keen observers had spotted what appeared to be the outline of a vast city - the size of Wales - on the floor of the Atlantic Ocean. But the criss-crossing lines, located 600 miles west of the Canary Islands, were today explained by Google as sonar data collected as boats mapped the ocean floor. Bathymetric (or sea floor terrain) data is often collected from boats using sonar to take measurements of the sea floor. The lines reflect the path of the boat as it gathers the data.

But per the Zetas, this is not the correct explanation. Certain rock fractures into rectangular pieces, and this is the cause of the crisscross lines. In fact, if one analyzes the size of the so-called city, claimed to be as large as Wales, those roads would be too far apart to represent a city.

ZetaTalk Comment 2/21/2009: We have stated in the past that Atlantis was not in the Caribbean nor was it in the Mediterranean. It was off the coast of Europe, in the lands routinely drawn down under the waves when a pole shift rips the Atlantic further apart. Google has an explanation for the criss-cross lines that appear, which is not the correct explanation. However, this was not a city, nor was it Atlantis. Rock often fractures in a criss-cross manner, depending upon the type of rock.

So where is Atlantis, and where should the search be focused? Per the Zetas, it is located off the coast of Europe, in that portion of the Atlantic Ocean that has been dragged down during prior pole shifts.

ZetaTalk Comment 6/15/1997: Atlantis was land near the current continent of Europe, which was pulled into the Atlantic during the continental rip that accompanies violent pole shifts and thus disappeared dramatically under the sea. This demise was assisted by extraterrestrials, who took advantage of the natural cataclysm to adjust the balance in spiritual orientation influencing developing human spirits, in line with a determination by the Council of Worlds that such an adjustment was needed. Atlantis had been essentially invaded by the giant hominoids from Planet X, who prior to the quarantine that is now in effect were considered simply another hominoid race within your Solar System. Interactions between humans and these hominoids were allowed to proceed without interference, but increasing slavery of humans by these giant hominoids was tripping the balance so that humans were less and less free to choose their orientation based on their true feelings and increasingly influenced by feelings of helplessness. Thus, an adjustment was required.

Economic Black Hole

The Zetas predicted the current state of affairs, stating that the world would go into another depression prior to the pole shift. The reasons given were the crop shortages predicted by the Zetas, the economic impact of disasters draining insurance companies, and the inability of industries to function when the Earth changes affect their infrastructure.

ZetaTalk Prediction 2/15/2001: Economic impacts are beginning to bump into each other, one causing the other, so that the economic result is beyond a recession and threatening to become a worldwide depression. The economic drain from disasters affects individuals and their ability to work, villages and cities and their ability to provide services, and corporations that are dependent upon customers.

The Bush administration tried to deny what had occurred on their watch, even denying that the economy was in a recession until the great Wall Street crash began on September 15, 2008. Comparisons to the Great Depression of 1929-1930 began to creep into the words thrown about by the talking heads on television. Denial is apparently no longer in vogue. Recently, some sage heads are saying that the current economic mess is worse than the Great Depression.

Paul Volcker: "Even The Experts Don't Quite Know What's Going On"
February 20, 2009
Speaking to a number of those experts, Paul Volcker, a top economic adviser to President Barack Obama, cited not only the lack of understanding of the global financial meltdown but the "shocking" speed with which it had spread across the world. "One year ago, we would have said things were tough in the United States, but the rest of the world was holding up," Volcker told a conference featuring Nobel laureates, economists and investors at Columbia University in New York. "The rest of the world has not held up." In fact, the 81-year-old former chairman of the Federal Reserve said, "I don't remember any time, maybe even the Great Depression, when things went down quite so fast." He noted that industrial production is falling in countries across the globe faster than in the U.S., one result of the decline caused by the breakdown of unbridled financial markets that operated on a global scale. "It's broken down in the face of almost all expectation and prediction," he noted.

Soros Sees No Bottom for World Financial "Collapse"
February 20, 2009
Renowned investor George Soros said the world financial system has effectively disintegrated, adding that there is yet no prospect of a near-term resolution to the crisis. Soros said the turbulence is actually more severe than during the Great Depression, comparing the current situation to the demise of the Soviet Union.

Deflation is in process, where the value of an item decreases rather then increases. The DOW is steadily dropping. This is also something the Zetas predicted.

ZetaTalk Prediction 12/15/1999: Most stocks are inflated beyond their value, very few are not, and they can fall to 1/4 of their value before they settle with the public feeling they have some confidence in the stock and that it cannot be worth less.

Dow 11-Year Low Reached
February 20, 2009
The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell below its lowest close since 1997 on concerns that banks could be nationalized, marking the possible end of government-led bailouts. Citigroup and Bank of America, which have received a total of more than $90 billion in federal aid, fell more than 32%. The Dow fell 204.86 points, or 2.7%, to 7,261.09. As investors fled to safety, gold topped $1,000 an ounce and Treasuries rose.

How far has the down plunged, to date? Considering the rate of inflation, it has fallen by half.

Panic Optional
February 20, 2009
October 2007 the Dow closed at 14,066.01. Since it's now 2009 and the Minneapolis Fed's inflation calculator has been updated, we can see that in order to just stay even with inflation, the Dow would need to be at 14,820.13 today. Which means: When we cross 7,410.065 this morning, on an inflation-adjusted basis the DOW will have lost half its value from October of 2007.

Solar Confusion

Early in the ZetaTalk saga the Zetas stated that the Sun would be used as an excuse for the Earth changes anticipated to be caused by the presence of Planet X.

ZetaTalk Prediction 6/1/2002: Solar Flares, an extended or anomalous solar cycle, has been planned for decades to be used as a distraction and excuse during this time. Any reason for the current weather, satellite failure, magnetic diffusion, or heating core along with volcanic and quake increases, are to be blamed on the Sun or Global Warming.

Despite the murmuring of NASA that this solar cycle, to end at the Solar Maximum in 2012, is to be horrific, the Sun surprised all by being inordinately quiet during 2008. The sunspot count was almost nil and the solar wind mysteriously diminished. So does this mean that the establishment is giving up on blaming the Sun for blackouts and satellite malfunction? Per an article released in January, 2009, the answer to that question is "no". We are reminded that this might happen, and has happened before.

Powerful Solar Storm Could Shut Down U.S. for Months
January 09, 2009,2933,478024,00.html
A new study from the National Academy of Sciences outlines grim possibilities on Earth for a worst-case scenario solar storm. Damage to power grids and other communications systems could be catastrophic, the scientists conclude, with effects leading to a potential loss of governmental control of the situation. The prediction is based in part on a major solar storm in 1859 that caused telegraph wires to short out in the United States and Europe, igniting widespread fires. It was perhaps the worst in the past 200 years, according to the new study, and with the advent of modern power grids and satellites, much more is at risk.

When the sun is in the active phase of its 11-year cycle, it can unleash powerful magnetic storms that disable satellites, threaten astronaut safety, and even disrupt communication systems on Earth. The worst storms can knock out power grids by inducing currents that melt transformers. Modern power grids are so interconnected that a big space storm - the type expected to occur about once a century - could cause a cascade of failures that would sweep across the United States, cutting power to 130 million people or more in this country alone. Outages could take months to fix, the researchers say. Banks might close, and trade with other countries might halt.

In 1989, the sun unleashed a tempest that knocked out power to all of Quebec, Canada. A remarkable 2003 rampage included 10 major solar flares over a two-week period, knocking out two Earth-orbiting satellites and crippling an instrument aboard a Mars orbiter. The race is on for better forecasting abilities, as the next peak in solar activity is expected to come around 2012. While the sun is in a lull now, activity can flare up at any moment, and severe space weather - how severe, nobody knows - will ramp up a year or two before the peak. Some scientists expect the next peak to bring more severe events than other recent peaks. The report was commissioned and funded by NASA.

This odd emphasis, after a lack of sunspots and diminishing solar wind, raised a few eyebrows.

Question: Could the Zetas comment on NASA recent warning about possible impending doom coming from space to bring down civiliztion? "There is a serious risk of civilization being brought crashing to its knees by a sudden high-intensity solar radiation storm."

ZetaTalk Response 2/14/2009: At the start of ZetaTalk in 1995, we mentioned that one means of explaining the Earth changes that will precede the pole shift will be to blame the Sun. NASA has been doing this for years, warning people that the solar maximum this period would be horrific. Oops, then about the time the maximum was supposed to be gearing up, there were almost no sunspots for a year. Nevertheless, this is one of the favorite excuses, with so much energy put into it, that they cannot give it up. They have zero rationale for their claims, but make them anyway.
