This may be the rambling of an exhausted parent who just read an article about a lost continent being found in the Indian Ocean. You have been warned.
In the article which I will provide the link of at the bottom of this post, they go on to say that a continent that broke off from the mega-land formation that was the earth’s land mass millions of years ago (they may have said billions, but my memory is fuzzy as my coffee wears off) was found in the Indian Ocean by comparing sediments which proved they were part of the same original land mass. Cool, but that’s not what caught my attention in the first place.
In the description of this article, the tagline says, “It’s not Atlantis, but a lost continent has been found.” Just from reading/hearing that tagline, my mind traveled to the animated Disney movie of Atlantis and the story of how/why they sank and were hidden from the world. Regardless of how/why Atlantis sank, if they could see the state of the world right now, would they want to be found? Would they want to become a part of this society as a whole, joining the human-race as we know it on the planet?
After years of been hidden, tucked away an unfazed by this overpopulated, information inundated, hustle and bustle world, would Atlantis want to be found?
I have a feeling that if Atlantis were real and still thriving somehow, they would take one look at us and re-sink their city. They’d have no desire to see our world, and they would be more than opposed to sharing theirs.
Hey, I warned you at the beginning that this exhausted mother wasn’t going to make any sense. I think I hear my pillow calling!
