On display in the Egyptian Museum of Cairo are many breath taking and ethereal artifacts. Objects owned and used by many of the great rulers of ancient Egypt. Sitting in a back room in a humble case is an object that has completely perplexed modern Egyptologists. The complex object is called the Tri Lobed Bowl and is made of a very fragile stone called Schist. It was discovered by Brian Walter Emery in 1936, Emery is recognized as one of the most influential Egyptologists of the 20th century. The object was found near the tomb of Prince Sabu, the son of a Pharaoh that lived in 3000 B.C. Emery classified the object as a "Cachibache" translated as a small hole that threatens to become a large hole. The technical skills required to carve such an object from solid stone is on the order of a modern computerized 3D milling machine.

The mainstream scientific community has shunned the object relegating it to no more than a religious ceremonial artifact, perhaps used in a burial ritual. This is typically code for "We have no idea what the hell this thing is". The Egyptians of 5000 years ago were undoubtedly extremely capable. In fact many alternative thinkers believe that ancient Egypt was re-established by Atlantians after the great flood of ancient lore, and that the pyramids are much older than the 5000 years mainstream science has put on them. The Tri Lobed Bowl is wheel shaped with a center slot designed for a drive shaft. The Hicsos are credited with the discovery and early use of the wheel. The Egyptians fought in battle with the Hicsos 1400 years after this object was created. This is thought to be where the Egyptians got the idea for the wheel. One possibility is that the Tri Lobed Bowl is a reproduction of a part from a more sophisticated machine created by an artist in the Schist stone. Other advanced stone carvings made of the Schist stone have been found from the same era. An Egyptian vase was found that was carved so precisely and delicately that it would challenge any 3D milling equipment used today. There have been many artifacts that do not fall within the time lines of conventional thinking. The Saqqara bird for example was found in a tomb and sat in a British Museum for years long before the discovery of flight. It was assumed that it was a model of a bird, but researches have found through computer modeling that it could have been a cargo plane. The aircraft would have been a very stable machine capable of lifting great weight. It wasn't until 5000 years later that Orville and Wilbur Wright had the same idea. At the Temple of Abydos is one of the most astonishing "Cachibache" found to date. A relief panel high in the tomb includes images of very advanced and exotic flying craft. Helicopters, flying cars and perhaps a submarine are carved in intricate detail. Mainstream Egyptologists once again explain theses images as optical aberrations created by a series of re-carvings. Pictographs laid one over the other creating the coincidental shapes of modern vehicles. If on the other hand these were true to life vehicles they would have required many moving parts and there in lies the possibility that the Tri Lobed Bowl was a component of one of these machines. One very modern part that comes to mind when looking at the Tri Lobed bowl is an Impeller. Impellers are the main parts used in a hydraulic pump and any large machine would need any number of them. If in fact these fantastic machines really existed then they would need all the machined pieces that would make up such an advanced craft. Egyptian artisans may have seen actual metal parts that came from one of these craft and were so enamoured with it that they had to reproduce it in Schist stone. Or, the Tri Lobed Bowl may have been the positive cast for making the part in metal. This technique is still used today when making a cast for a mold to be used in the foundry of metal parts. Sand is pack around the model part and baked. When the cast is cut open the model leaves a perfect negative image in the sand where molten metal can be poured in to form the part. Could the Tri Lobed Bowl be just part of a fancy religious burial rite? Were the ancient Egyptians nothing more than a very cleaver tribe of desert dwellers? In the Atlantium continuum the answer is "NO". Ancient artifacts have surfaced all over the world in recent years that point to a time when man was very advanced. These artifacts fly in the face of conventional thinking and scientific dogma. We should at least begin to look at these ancient objects with a more opened mind and see if they hold any secrets from our distant past. Mr. Emery chose the perfect word for these amazing artifacts, "Cachibache". ATLANTIUM. Roc Hatfield/Author

Time keeps on tickin' tickin' away, sings songwriter Don Henley in one of his greatest hits. The marking of time and the references about time permeate every culture on Earth. Where did the keeping or marking of time come from? The answer could be out of this world. Literally. The ancient Sumer are credited with creating the hour, minute and second and we still use the exact same increments today. So, how did the ancient Sumerians come up with this revolutionary and long lasting idea?

Little was known about the ancient Sumer before the mid 1800s until the emerging science of archeology discovered their existence. In 1910 a large cache of clay tablets were found containing thousands of documents written in an unknown language. The tablets were recorded using a cuneiform alphabet with 400 characters, along with relief panels containing pictures made using metal seals. Many years have been dedicated to the study and interpretation of these clay panels. Researchers have found records that cover every aspect of everyday life, marriage documents, business contracts, city tax records and a virtual encyclopedia of a very advanced culture. The Sumer are credited with being the first civilization on Earth to have invented a long list of things we still use everyday; the wheel, arch, astronomy, courts, laws, mathematics, sea travel, and time keeping just to name a few. Perhaps one of the most amazing aspects of the Sumer is their highly detailed accounts of their gods the Annunaki. The Annunaki came down to Earth from Heaven and created man by mixing their DNA with the primitive humans that lived on Earth at the time of their arrival. The Anunnaki gave the Sumer everything they needed. All the inventions they are credited with were given to them by the Annunaki according to their writings. The Sumer had a mathematical system based on 60 rather than our base 10 system. They divided hours by 60 minutes, and minutes by 60 seconds. How were they able to mark off these units of time? It is assumed that they must have had some device capable of marking time. A very curious device is ever present on the wrists of the Annunaki. The Sumer generated a great number of carvings, statues and images of the Annunaki and they always took great care in placing what for lack of a better description appears to be a watch. They are not Rolexes but do look very precise with a face, markings all around the outside of the face and a sweeping hand. The Sumer have left great volumes of information to us about their gods the Annunaki. The Annunaki are characterized by the Sumer as a great space fairing people. They are believed to have been very large individuals perhaps 2-3 times larger than a man. They are called the Nephilim in the Hebrew Bible and referred to as the Sons of God. They became attracted to human women and had offspring that were giants, the "Men of Renown". What is interesting is that the Sumer recorded stories about these creatures thousands of years before the Bible. One startling account tells of the Annunaki's origins and how their planet Nibiru comes through our neck of the woods every 3600 years. One time in the ancient past Nibiru passed to close to Earth and knocked off a big chunk of our planet that later formed our Moon. The cross pollination of Earth with Nibiru provided the basic elements for their evolution. These ideas are 7000 years old and NASA today believes that this could be a very valid theory. NASA is currently searching for what they call Planet X. Planet X is believed to be out beyond our recognized solar system. Much of the information contained in the ruins of the Sumer has yet to be translated, who can imagine what knowledge may be reveled. Were the ancient Sumer just a bunch of really smart tribesmen? Are the Annunaki merely religious idols created as part of a creation myth? In the Atlantium continuum the answer is "NO". The probability of a group of primitive humans gathering in the desert and creating the first of many inventions we still use today without some sort of help is difficult to imagine. The record shows that they had almost every modern convenience that we have today and the TIME to enjoy it. ATLANTIUM. Roc Hatfield/Author

There are thousands of old rusty cars strewn across America. Many of them are almost unrecognizable, the wind, rain and elements taking their toll. These cars were made of advanced metal compounds no more that 80 or so years ago, yet they have all but vanished from existence. Creating non-oxidizing metals is no easy challenge. New advanced metals like stainless steel and titanium are highly resistant to rust but will eventually succumb if not maintained properly. Amazingly ancient metallurgists had conquered many of these technical problems thousands of years ago.

The Ashoka Pillar located at a temple just outside Delhi India also known as the Iron Pillar of Mehaurali is a 1500 year old solid piece of pure iron. The Pillar is over 23 feet high and weighs 30 tonnes. What makes this object so unique is the fact that it has no rust on it despite being outdoors in the very humid air of Delhi for at least one thousand five hundred years. The pillar said to have been erected by Kumara Gupta of the Gupta dynasty that ruled this part of India in A.D. 320-350 is believed by many to be much older. One reason researchers believe it to be 1500 years old is due to an inscription that was made into the pillar at is construction. The inscription is a poem to the ruler and many of the references are not of the A.D. 320-350 time frame which leads many to think that it could be at least 4000 years old or perhaps even much older. The Ashoka Pillar has been examined by many modern companies in an effort to find its secret of a long and rust free life. The current thinking is that the metal contains 1 percent phosphorous which is much higher that modern steel. Researchers have found that the Pillar has a very thin protective natural accruing film around it that will not allow oxygen or moisture to penetrate to its surface. A kind of built in force field if you will. A number of scientists are convinced that containers made from the same blend of metals could store radioactive waste safely for thousands of years. Recently translations of ancient Sanskrit texts have reveled that the Rama Empire which could have existed as far back as 12,000-25,000 years ago possessed fantastic technology. Extremely detailed stories of flying machines that used anti gravity propulsion, nuclear weapons, space travel and more are described in these ancient texts. The Ashoka Pillar may have come from the time of the Rama Empire and is just another technical wonder from that era that has survived until today.

The Wonderstone Mine of South Africa has yielded an even more quizzical metallic object. A large number of metal spheres the size of baseballs have been discovered deep in the mine. At least 200 have been unearthed and the spheres are all subtlety different. The spheres are made of an alloy of nickle and steel a combination that does not occur in nature. These objects have a thin outer shell and some spongy substance on the inside with indented lines running around the equator of the sphere. One museum curator claims that they can spin on their own power. These spheres have been fabricated by someone or something, the big question is what? The spheres are being dug from solid rock that is deep in the earth and is billions of years old. That's right BILLIONS with a B. The Earth was just cooling off from being coalesced from ultra hot space debris when the rock from which these spheres are pulled was formed. One potential theory; these objects were created by creatures that lived on a planet that circled a giant star that occupied the same space we do now. It is believed that our solar system formed from the dust of a star that exploded billions of years ago. Prior to that stars demise it could have had its own planets circling it. One of those planets could have had intelligent life that created the spheres in question. When their planet was destroyed by their star going nova the spheres survived and became part of our new Earth. OK, big idea but it is just as valid as any for the moment. Science remains baffled as to how these objects found their way into solid rock that hasn't seen sunshine in billions of years. Is the Ashoka Pillars ability to prevent rust just a fluke caused by a primitive metallurgist? Are the metal spheres found deep in the Wonderstone Mine a very cleaver trick of nature? In the Atlantium continuum the answer is "NO". Whatever the real answer is to these mysteries it is clear that many objects around us point to a very different kind of history than we are accustomed to. ATLANTIUM. Roc Hatfield/Author
