On the night before Halloween in 1938 millions of Americans were tuned in to a radio show featuring Plays directed and starring Orson Wells. The performance for that evening was an adaptation of the science fiction novel "War of the Worlds". The story about an invasion of aliens from Mars was broadcast across the country. The format of the play made it sound as if it was breaking news. This technique of performing a radio play with such realism was new and unfamiliar to many of the weekly listeners. The format sounded like an authentic news bulletin and the actors were reporters covering the story of unworldly ships that had crash landed on a farm just outside Grovers Mills New Jersey. The radio program was so convincing that a large number of people mistook it for a real news broadcast. As the program rolled on real news agencies started to pick up the story of the Martian invasion and a national panic ensued.

Mars has captivated the imagination of millions ever since Italian Angelo Secchi in 1858 discovered the existence of Canals on the surface of Mars. It wasn't long before ideas of advanced civilizations were at work on the planet building those canals. Today we know differently, an armada of deep space probes have mapped every inch of Mars. The Canals once thought to be martian made are nothing more than giant ruts cut by ancient running water. A new Martian controversy has taken center stage with seemingly endless potential. Viking I a Mars orbiting probe took pictures in 1976 of an immense feature on the surface that appeared to be a highly detailed human looking face. The photos set for years in NASA's files until they were discovered by researchers most notably Richard Hoagland. Hoagland was the first to claim that the face and nearby Pyramid structures were all evidence of an ancient martian civilization. The face is very human like and to some seems very reminiscent of the Sphinx. This has prompted a whole new crop of theories and speculation as to what these structures are and who might have built them. The area has come to be known as Cydonia, a vast smooth plain in the planets' northern hemisphere. More recently NASA returned to Mars with its' brand new high tech Odyssey probe and by popular demand flew over Cydonia. The probe returned some less than impressive digital high resolution photos. But still the features on the surface remain compelling to those that have spent years studying and theorizing what these curious structures might be. One remarkable idea lays out a connection between ancient Egypt and Cydonia. The face and nearby Pyramids share a great number of similarities. The Cydonia face carries the same headdress of the Sphinx and the Pharaohs. The cluster of large Pyramids seem to be arranged into a city with a town center and other large supporting buildings. Most of the theories propose that an ancient advanced Martian expeditionary party came to earth and established an outpost at Giza Egypt thus the many unique similarities. What if it was the other way around? Ancient Sanskrit texts from the Rama Empire describe in amazing detail the existence and use of advanced flying machines known as Vimanas. These flying marvels were common among a number of ancient empires at that time, including Atlantis, Egypt and the ancient Peruvians. The ancient texts chronicle the flights and battles that took place between these rival empires. One compelling aspect of the various stories is that these Vimanas were capable of fighting in space. Specially designed ships were capable of taking a contengent of troops to the Moon and the nearby Planets. Battles took place between the Rama Vimanas and those of the other empires in orbit above the Earth and other Planets. Egypt was noted as being one of the combatants in these stories and had Vimana technology on par to the Rama Empire. One possibility for the Face and Pyramids on Mars if they truely do exist could be that the ancient Egyptians left them there. Current science would find this utterly proposterous of coarse but science thought the world was flat. It is unclear how old these stories of Vimanas are, the Atlantium period is thought to have been 15,000 to 50,000 years ago. Our modern accepted ideas of civilization and use of technology only go back 7000 years or so. Could the structures at Cydonia on Mars be an ancient Earth colony? Did ancient humans travel to nearby Planets? In the Atlantium continuum the answer is "YES". Ancient artifacts and written accounts point to a time when ancient man was very familar with advanced flying machines. Artifacts from the Egyptians, Mayans, Peruvians, and the Rama Empire all point to an intricate understanding of flight and space travel. Maybe one day we will hear a real news bulletin stating that the Martians are us. ATLANTIUM. Roc Hatfield/Author

The 90's Sci-Fi TV series "Sliders" explores the fantastic concept of traveling through an energy vortex that is connected to another dimension. The shows' heroes travel to a different dimension each week where they encounter one rude awakening after another. Real science has only just begun to generate theories about different dimensions and the possibilities they propose. Interesting ideas have been created in physics labs that point to atomic particles being present not only in our reality but in others simultaneously. In the Sliders series a machine was used to generate an opening between two closely aligned dimensions. These dimensions are envisioned as bubbles, like soap bubbles on water. Each bubble represents an entire reality just like ours. The bubbles are packed tightly together with their surfaces connecting to each other. In order to travel from one to the other you need to tear an opening where the two come together. In real life this would pose many complications, like what if the bubbles slide around and now you are no longer near the bubble you came from.

Not to worry, it seems there may be natural openings that exist between dimensions known as "Coordination Points". These points are all over the world and are natural gateways between our dimension and many others. The Pyramids at Giza Egypt are said to be one such Coordination Point. They are not all on the surface of the Earth, some may lay in the air above or in the depths below. When dimensions come together at these locations it would be possible to pass over, or just peer into the other side. This idea is not new it has been referenced many times down through ancient history. More recently strange artifacts and anecdotes from the last few hundred years have started to take on revived interest as more and more people have begun to open their minds to alternate possibilities. A number of researchers have gone back into newspapers and books from the 1700's forward looking for out of the ordinary accounts that may be connected in some way to the idea of inter dimensional travel. In 1885 a well digger discovered a clay doll at a depth of 320 feet. The doll was in good condition with many details clearly visible. The material it was found in was dated to over 300,000 years old. In 1826 well diggers near the Ohio River found a stump with a modern looking ax still stuck into it. The stump was found 100 feet down encased in a layer of material that dates to 100,000 years old. In 1851 the Boston Transcript reported that miners had blasted a metal vase out of solid rock. The vase made from zinc and silver had intricate floral patters in the metal work. The vase was cemented into limestone over 100,000 years old. 1853, a horned lizard was found in New Mexico inside solid rock. The lizard was still alive and had rested in a pocket molded perfectly to its body. The lizard was sent to the Smithsonian where it lived for a few days and died. In 1856 in St. Dizier France french workmen digging a railway tunnel were terrified when a large winged creature stumbled toward them and let out a squawk and fell at their feet. The animal was later identified as a Pterodactyl. The animal had been frozen in solid stone leaving a perfect mold of its body in the rock. Near Los Angeles in 1869 workers discovered a solid wall embedded in a coal mine. The wall featured perfectly formed unknown letters raised on its surface. The coal where the wall was found was over 200 million years old. In 1870 near Peoria Illinois well diggers lifted a copper coin the size of a quarter from 150 feet below. The coin was evenly made and featured detailed engravings on both sides. The material in which it was found dated to 150,000 B.C. In 1944 a sophisticated metal bell was found inside a lump of coal. The Bell was analysed and found to be made of unusual metals. These are but a small sampling of the strange stories that have been recorded in newspapers in the last few centuries. It is entirely possible that these stories are fiction and used solely for the purpose of selling newspapers. On the other hand stories like these appear very far back into our past. One possible explanation could be connected to the idea of Coordination Points and Inter Dimensional travel. These objects and animals could have been in the wrong place at the right time. If different dimensions do intersect from time to time they may claim objects and creatures in their paths. Pulling or pushing things from one side of the dimensional boundary to the other. Are these stories just an ancient version of Inquiring minds want to know? Are all of these ancient out of place artifacts mere hoaxes? In the Atlantium continuum the answer is "NO". The overwhelming number of these accounts of OOPARTs points to a different explanation. Perhaps in the near future science will discover the real secret of Sliding. ATLANTIUM. Roc Hatfield/Author

Galileo the 16th century Italian mathematician, physicist, and astronomer who was most famous for inventing the telescope, would have been very surprised had he seen the Ica Stones. The Ica Stones named after a small Peruvian town near the Nazca Plains feature very detailed carvings of ancient Peruvians watching comets and other astral bodies with what appear to be telescopes. The stones were first discovered by a local farmer. The farmer told villagers that a flood had washed away the side of a mountain and reveled a cave. It was in this cave that he found thousands of the carved stones. The farmer began offering the stones to tourist as souvenirs then in 1966 geologists and archaeologist stumbled upon some the stones and were utterly amazed. The BBC aired a report that spotlighted the stones and a great deal of unwanted attention was focused on the small town.

Local government officials didn't want anymore treasure hunters or tomb raiders running around so they arrested the farmer and put him behind bars for violating the Peruvian antiquities laws.
The authorities soon released the farmer claiming he had made a full confession admitting that he was solely responsible for carving the stones himself. The farmer who was a very simple man with no formal education claimed he used illustrations he saw in books and magazines as inspiration for the carvings. The small town's physician Dr. Javier Cabrera Darquea became the farmers best customer. The doctor purchased hundreds of the stones and would ask the farmer how many he had. The farmer was always secretive and non committal about the origin of the stones presumably because he didn't want to return to jail. The doctor agreed to purchase all the remaining stones and discovered that over 15,000 stones existed. Each one depicting a different scene more amazing and incredible than the next. The doctor concluded very quickly that the farmer had no part in carving the stones, calculating that the farmer would have had to carve a stone each day for over 40 years. The stones are now part of a permanent museum owned and maintained by Dr. Cabrera. The stones appear to be a knowledge base recorded in a manner that would survive any natural forces that they could be subjected to here on earth. The stones are a form of encyclopedia, each stone illustrating some event or technological capability. Besides the stargazing Indians there are stones that show in great detail brain surgery, organ transplants, blood transfusions, flying craft and global maps. One stone shows the mythological continents of Lemuria in the Pacific and Atlantis in the Atlantic. One of the most astonishing themes of the stones are that of dinosaurs and man interacting. Scenes of Stegosaurus, Triceratops and Tyrannosaurus Rex are carved identical to modern ideas of how these extinct animals appeared. Many of the stones contain the same graphic images that appear on the desert floor of the Nazca Plains. The stones were found near the site of one of Peru's greatest mysteries. The Nazca drawings are huge images etched in the desert floor that can only be seen from high above. The images were virtually unknown until the invention of the airplane. Erich Von Daniken made the Nazca Lines famous in his book Chariots of the gods. Von Daniken theorized that the lines were ancient runways and guide posts for flying craft that frequented the area. The age of the Nazca Lines are unknown, researchers believe they were made by ancient Peruvian Indians that lived in the desert 2500 years ago. It is reasonable to make a connection between the Nazca Lines and the Ica Stones. If the stones are a hoax then they are incredible forgeries that would require the skill and knowledge of many technologically advanced sciences. Not to mention the tools and carving skills to produce over 15,000 individually unique stones. What would possibly motivate someone or a group of someones to invest the time and money into such an endeavour? The obvious answer is money of coarse, but how much money could the farmer and his co-conspirators make selling the stones to a few tourists and locals? If the stones are not a hoax then what is this stone library telling us? The images singularly and collectively revel an astonishing awareness of ancient Peruvian Super-Tech. Ancient Indian Sanskrit texts from the Rama Empire describe a time thousands of years ago when a great technological world existed. Large flying craft made trips from what is now modern India to Peru. Many ancient cultures have made reference to this ancient time when the world was full of incredible technological achievement. One distinct possibility is that these stones were created as a medium for knowledge to be passed down through time without being corrupted by fire, water or the elements. An indestructible knowledge base. Why then if these ancients were so advanced didn't they use a more technical material like stainless steel or titanium? Are the Ica Stones an elaborate hoax? Did an ancient super advanced civilization leave us a stone encyclopedia? In the Atlantium continuum the answer is "NO". The Ica Stones are most likely carvings made by the nearby Nazca Indians. These stones could be an attempt at recording knowledge that was lost. Knowledge that was remembered by a surviving group of individuals years after a great cataclysm that destroyed all human civilization. This would explain why they used stone to capture as many events and technologies as they could that it might not pass from memory. ATLANTIUM. Roc Hatfield/Author
