Surveys of Atlantis, Continued

This posting began as a simple demonstration that the area of the early agricultural regions associated with Atlantis could be matched against Donnelly's map of The Atlantean Empire from Atlantis: the Antediluvian World (1882, Below, together with the Theosophical map which is undoubtedly a revised version of the same map from Donnelly) and the area covered by the oldest set of the Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings. Something else rather important turned up during this writing which took center stage further down and so I chose to concentrate on that aspect instead.  The above map is merely the same map published earlier on this same blog but with new labels on it.



Atlantean Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings World (First version of this originally published at Dale's Atlantis Files Yahoo Group, Dec 17, 2006) Modified version of previous map. Central area of Atlantic indicates "Sea Kings" areas evidently well-known and mapped in last warm stage of the last Ice Age: Lighter grey indicates less well known areas (Behring Landbridge was indicated while it was still up, but left off more recent maps) and darker grey areas were incompletely or inadequately known. Antarctica was evidently mapped by whaling expeditions.
This theory has it that the collection of maps used in Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings are not all contemporaneous, that they contain interglacial, glacial and postglacial (Holocene) geographical references. Some of the maps do seem to indicate conditions during and just prior to the Younger Dryas: my impression was that the oldest ones had a pretty good knowledge of the Mediterranean and Gulf of Mexico/Caribbean areas. Therefore the area reflects Donnelly's Atlantean Empire rather well.
Below is a map from Stacy-Judd's Atlantis, The Mother of Empires, 1939, which takes Spence's multiple migrations out of Atlantis and associates the migrations with different cultural levels on a steadily-sinking Atlantis. This stage associated with the Magdalenians in Europe was also supposed to have eventually resulted in the American Mound-Builders  and even the early Egyptians (pre-Pyramid stage), Since I had more recently gone once again into the territory of Magdalenians being connected to Moundbuilders (Hopewellians in particular), I thought it would be a good idea to trot the map out again. Graham Hancock’s book Underworld (2002) notes a sudden influx of glacial meltwater at about 16000 to 14000 years ago as the first of three “Global Superfloods”, each of the three being derived from the melting of the continental glaciers, in stages.

Map of the Ancient Sea kings Atlantis at Left. This was discussed in the first "Surveys of Atlantis" article on this blog, almost a full years ago.
Reconstructed Map of Atlantis as taken from an internet discussion board on Atlantis, with the "Great Plain of Atlantis" coloured in. I had previously indicated the "Interesting formation" earlier as possibly being the site of Atlantis' capital city: the person that posted it preferred a location nearer to the present-day Azores.
The complete surprise came from another website which identified certain very early "Mother Goddess" figurines from Europe with the MAP of Atlantis:

Actually the Venus of Willendorf was made more like 20000 BC, the beginning of Solutrean-equivalency-age. The enthroned Goddess is from Catal Huyuk and is PostPleistocene although it could well incorporate the same tradition: structures on Malta (Hypogea) could also incorporate the same theme. And Silbury Hill near Stonehenge was similarly stated to be an immense blowup of a Neolithic "Goddess" figure in outline-which also happens to be just about this same outline all over again including the adjoining ditch.

Which brings up the interesting feature that This conventionalized idol as the shape of the Goddess' body is something that was established during the Magdalenian period in Europe and religiously repeated endlessley over thousands of years up until the end of the Ice Age!




It also does not matter what the material is bone or flint, ivory or polished stone: the shape is what is important and it is always the same shape. It is also the same "Goddess" shape when engraved onto cave walls, such as the Gonnersdorf figurines below.

And you might well disbeieve that all of that constitutes valid evidence that the "Goddess of Atlantis" actually shows a MAP of Atlantis as doled out by the Ancient Sea Kings at such a time when they were supposedly making surveys and mapping the world. The idea might seem a little far-fetched even though Donnelly had introduced the concept of the Earth Goddess representing (specifically) the Island of Atlantis in his followup book Ragnarok (The Destruction of Atlantis) But why then are some of the goddess representations marked with crisscross networks of lines similar to the canal-grid of Atlantis and why are some of the Cave art images representing an area of concentric circles with an assocated cross pattern, and also associated with mounted archer horsemen, long before there were supposed to be any such?
In a later blog I shall go more into the concentric circle pattern, its relationship to the Omphalos or Center of the World, and its actual identity as the Representative Vagina of The Original Earth Mother Goddess of Atlantis, whom Plato calls Cleito, ie, Clitoris.



 Cuicilco Pyramid near Mexico City, cited in the Appendix of Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings as being possibly the oldest pyramid in the world, with C14 dates of the overlayers going back as far as 7000 years (C14 UNcalibrated) and partly covered by a lava flow dated to more than 10000 years old (which has been disputed ever since, but it is consistent with several other volcanic eruptions at about that same date) Like the other very old pyramidical structures it seems to be a parallel to Atlantis' capital city once again and with a Kiva on top rather than the hut-temple more common in the more familiar pyramids of the historical Mesoamericans. Ceremonial centers in the shape of concentric circles are very widespread as we have seen elsewhere on this blog, and some of the others are thought to go back as far as at least 8000 BC.
