Our world has become extremely reliant on technology, and while this isn’t necessarily a bad thing in theory, the reality is somehow different. We tend to boast about the overall achievements of our species, about the technological advancements that are due to a corroborative effort of other humans, but although this evergreen tree is producing more fruits than ever, on an individual scale we only get to reap what grows at the base of this tree, or whatever falls off.
The technological fruits which grow towards the top of the tree remain in the grasp of major organizations, be them private or governmental. We willingly entrust them with using these tools for a greater purpose, as our daily lives revolve around more trivial things. However, this blind trust of ours is being defrauded by these groups that seek to control and utilize technology for their own scheming purposes. A monopoly has been instituted on advanced technological tools, and this clearly hinders our progress as a species.
On December 7, 2001, a news article covered by the BBC announced the discovery of a lost, long-submerged city with unusual features off the coast of Cuba. Due to the novelty of the find, the article remained somehow conservative, not revealing any spicy details that would make it controversial.
A team of explorers working off the west coast of Cuba say they have discovered what they think are ruins of a submerged city built thousands of years ago. Researchers from a Canadian company used sophisticated sonar equipment to find and film stone structures more than 2,000 feet (650 meters) below the sea’s surface.
They say they still not understand the exact nature of their discovery, and plan to start thorough analysis of the site – off the tip of the Guanahacabibes Peninsula – in January.
The image the robot brought back confirmed the presence of huge, smooth blocks with the appearance of cut granite. Some of the blocks were built in pyramid shapes, others were circular, said the researchers.” (source)
Paulina Zelitsky, head of a research team entitled “Advanced Digital Communications,” had made a deal with Fidel Castro to provide free access into Cuban territorial waters where they would scout for the remains of sunken ships from the Spanish colonial era believed to be laden with gold.
It was a generous deal, as Paulina and her team were to keep 50 percent of any treasures they would come across. The technology used by the research assembly was known as “side-scan sonar.” It relied on an underwater sonar device which took horizontal scans of the ocean floor. The images would then be assembled to form wider imagery of the ocean floor and 3D computer models.
After scanning a region where sunken wreckage was presumed to be found, the team of treasure hunters discovered something unusual. The sonar scan revealed “rectilinear geometry” similar to a city’s infrastructure.
The sunken ruins were resting half a mile below sea level (2,200 feet – 670 meters) and were comprised of various wall-like structures, foundations and other features difficult to explain. Given the depth of the site, researchers first estimated it to be over 12,000 years old, before the last (known) glaciation.
With all this puzzling data on the table, Paulina and her team decided to thoroughly analyze the material. What they found out next was truly startling – structures resembling huge pyramids, with linear architecture surrounding them, and a mysterious building resembling a sphinx with three paws.
After this breakthrough discovery deemed by many enthusiast as the missing link to the sunken city of Atlantis, the research team had signed a deal with National Geographic that was meant to shed light on this matter by broadcasting an extensive coverage of the site by 2003. However, National Geographic had never honored their part in this arrangement, and the story was put to rest in the years that followed.
The extreme depth where the site was located made it impossible for scuba-divers to cope with the pressure and strong currents, and the only viable option remaining was the use of a special submersible vehicle with a camera and spotlight attached to it. The research team had this privilege, so they returned a few months later for an in-depth analysis of the sunken metropolis.
Because Paulina signed a non-disclosure agreement, she wasn’t allowed to share with the public any images she and her team had obtained. However, a twitch allowed her to reveal pictures of the pictures, which was enough to stir the excitement of every alternative knowledge seeker trailing this formidable discovery.
The reconstructed image below shows what seems to be the platform upon where a temple had been built in remote times. It also reveals two sphinx-like structures in the background.
It’s gullible to assume that such formations occurred as a result of some natural phenomenon, or to interpret them as relief or algae.
The complex had colossal proportions, and was comprised of various structures with features that were (after reconstruction) similar to those of other attested civilizations found on the surface.
The Mystery Deepens Even Further:
The reason behind National Geographic’s retreat from the bargain is bizarre to say the least. Since media coverage on this topic had dissipated in the years that followed, most people believed that nothing of significance had been discovered there. But, I am more inclined to think that the formidable discovery of a sunken city off the coast of Cuba threatened, if exposed, the very establishment that’s dictating the doctrine we currently abide to. Just imagine news outlets worldwide speaking of a sunken civilization far-predating the oldest historically attested civilization.
It wouldn’t probably mean much to the naysayers, unless this newly discovered culture possessed advanced technological skills, which may very well be the case. Tracking this more than curious topic, renowned author and researcher David Wilcock, has made available unique insight he obtained about this Cuban sunken city. According to him, and not coming as a surprise, the US military knew of this site for quite some time now, ever since the “Cuban Missile Crisis” in 1962.
During the Cold War, the US sent a small fleet of submarines to survey potential missiles that had allegedly been planted by the Soviets on Cuban territory. During their endeavour, they stumbled across a submerged site that had pyramids, megalithic stone structures and sphinxes. We can safely assume they were the same sunken ruins encountered by Paulina and her team in 2001.
Since the government possessed all the novel technology and equipment, they naturally sent for an extensive investigation of the site. Several squadrons were assigned underwater where they came across ancient technology. According to David Wilcock, a huge dome encapsulating the entire area was put in place, water from within was dredged out, and the compartment pressurized before sending in the scientists.
At a closer investigation, the military found ancient machines that were still operational, with some of the lighting still turned on after millennia.
This information was allegedly revealed by a woman who, at that point in time, was employed as a regular cook at the Guantanamo Bay. She obtained this insight during one night when a drunken Navy seal that was seemingly trying to impress her boasted about the sunken metropolis. Among the most notable statements to come out of his mouth was, “…You know, we found Atlantis down there“.
These are not just empty words about a legend known to so many. As it seems, the ancients were very familiar to this sunken city (or civilization) of Atlantis. Take for example this excerpt from Plato’s Timaeus dialogue:
As for those genealogies of yours which you just now recount to us, Solon, they are no better than the tales of children.
In the first place, you remember a single deluge only, bu there were many previous ones; in the next place, you do not know that there formerly dwelt in your land the fairest and noblest race of men which ever lived, and that you and your whole city are descendant from a small seed or remnant of them which survived. And this was unknown to you because, for many generations, the survivors of that destruction died, leaving no written word.” (source)
Technological means needed to survive in harsh environments are mostly unavailable on an individual scale, and those organizations with proper equipment sometimes have to follow certain rules which forbid exposing exotic discoveries such as the sunken metropolis near Cuba. This shows how persuasive the powers that be truly are.
With a rich, but denied history, the human species doesn’t seem to care much if someone unravels secrets from a long-forgotten time, not even when advanced technology is being reverse-engineered and made available to those who can afford it. Since we are incapable to put pressure on the establishment, we’ll most likely continue to ignore our ancient legacy that we were so treacherously stripped off.
