[Excerpt from Michael Speaks: April 2002]
[MaryBV] I have the burning desire to hear what the average day was for someone who lived in Atlantis during its zenith. What sort of technology was available at that time?
To describe an average day for any time period would be quite arbitrary, as each day would be quite different for so many fragments, but we will comment within reason.
The civilization currently on your planet most like Atlantis at the time could be said to be some parts of Greece and Italy, as a combination of ancient and modern elements combine strangely and beautifully.
Atlantis was primarily Early Young Soul, with a great deal of Baby Soul influences throughout the culture and expectations of behavior. This then, is quite similar to many societies familiar to you, especially the United States of America.
An “average day” then consisted of participating in your very ritualistic and high profile spirituality. Spiritual practices were considered a means of identifying yourself and your sense of place in the community. Wealth was not as divided as is currently on your planet, but there were still those who had more than others, creating Classes of people. Inherent in the Baby and Young, of course, requires that division.
As electricity could be said to be your theme of accepted and permeating technology currently, quartz generators would have been the equivalent in Atlantis.
Both are similar in effect when used, but the uses of their ideas of quartz generators were far less stable and impractical at the time. Their use of quartz generators would be the equivalent of your Nuclear Energy currently. Both are profound sources of energy with eventual disastrous effects.
[MaryBV] Large crystals on top of buildings?
And yes, there were large crystal panels within the architecture of that time.
The use of Crystals in Atlantis was far less mystical than the New Age has described. Crystals as sources of energy are used in your own current technologies as similarly as Atlantis.
We will note that what you call “dinosaurs” did still exist alongside humans of the time, though this may not coincide with your current interpretation of historical data. Great walls were built as a means to protect Atlantis from these creatures. These creatures were not hostile, anymore than a bear or tiger might be, but the dangers were there.
There was a strong postal system and library system at the time, though the libraries of the time consisted of many contributors. By this we mean that individual households listed themselves as providers of certain material and this promoted a great deal of interaction among the Atlantean.
Continuing with this subject will be more appropriate as a specific topic, but we share a bit of our perceptions from that time to contribute to your exploration.
