View Spoiler »Albert Einstein, in his theory of special relativity, determined that the laws of physics are the same for all non-accelerating observers, and he showed that the speed of light within a vacuum is the same no matter the rate at which an observer travels.

Why was Albert Einstein significant? View Spoiler »He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics “for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect,” a crucial step in the evolution of quantum theory. Einstein published more than 300 scientific papers along with over 150 non-scientific works. « Hide Spoiler
Who thought first of time travel? View Spoiler »Time travel is a widely recognized concept in philosophy and fiction. The idea of a time machine was popularized by H. G. Wells’ 1895 novel The Time Machine. It is uncertain if time travel to the past is physically possible. « Hide Spoiler
How did Atlantis get its name? View Spoiler »We first read of ‘Atlantis’ in the writings of the philosopher Plato many hundreds of years ago. He retells a story of a Greek conversation in their Senate on the subject of an ancient paradise or idyllic land and ‘Atlantis’ was mentioned as real history, long before Egypt. This is not the only time it is said if you consider variations of the name as it was changed by many people and much time. ‘Aztlan’ was known to the Mayas and Aztecs. We also have an old Indian carving of the destruction of a large island in the Atlantic Ocean. Even the name of the ocean reflects the name Atlantis as well as places like the Azores, Antilles, etc. « Hide Spoiler
Where was Atlantis located; how big was it?View Spoiler »I have sent you a map of 13 locations for Atlantis that oddly form what has been called a ‘World Grid.’ It merely means there is a pattern to these most ancient sites. What exists there are mysteries; some strange thing that goes against a typical view of history. A few are very famous sites like the Great Pyramid, Stonehenge, and Easter Island. Others are lesser known, yet remain as oddities to researchers. These 13 sites were really Cradles of Civilization, which means the human race emerged from them…in a prehistoric pattern. India, England, Australia, Zimbabwe, Sahara Desert, Russia, Easter Island, South America, Brazil, and a few other spots show evidence of an early civilization that was not primitive. My view is unusual because I stand back and see a connection between these positions and the strange mysteries that exist there. Atlantis was as big as the entire planet; a global grid, in my expert opinion. Atlantis was the origin of the Indian civilizations. After a great war which sank a large island in the Atlantic Ocean and their power source, survivors fled to other Atlantean colonies that were already established around the globe. Asian races have their legendary Lemuria (Mu) in the Pacific Ocean. I believe that Atlantis took over the planet after Lemuria’s time was over in the Pacific, yet Atlantis gave its Japanese outpost to what was left of the Lemurians or Asian peoples. « Hide Spoiler
Who were the people of Atlantis?View Spoiler »We were and are the people of Atlantis. In my opinion, Atlantis explains the ancient mysteries between the Egyptians and Incas. Atlantis was where we came from and should be thought of as real history. To account for incredible constructions like (impossible) titanic pyramids or the giant statues on Easter Island or massive fortresses in the Andes Mountains…many have assumed ALIENS with advanced technology were responsible. Life out there surely exists, but I believe it is a mistake to think aliens helped prehistorically (primitive) humans build the wonders of the past. That view contradicts an even more incredible possibility IF TRUE: Our HUMAN ancestors could have created a utopia or EDEN here long, long ago…and we are just not giving the early humans the credit they deserve. « Hide Spoiler
