Many researchers believe that we are not the first advanced civilization to have existed on Earth. They claim that in prehistory, unrecorded history, one or more advanced civilizations may have existed, flourished, declined and perished. While this is a strange concept to most people, it is not as crazy as it seems at first glance.
Especially if we consider that what can happen to us can unfold without any warning. Chances are, if life began again, no one would remember we ever existed. If so, then who can say for sure that advanced civilizations did not exist thousands of years before our recorded history?
Power stations will close soon
If the world were to be hit by a sudden super-contagious virus, hit by a meteor, a solar flare, a nuclear war, or even an alien invasion, life would disappear. However, many of us do not realize how unstable our existence here on Earth is.
Let’s say that the vast majority of human life will disappear from any of the hypothetical situations mentioned above. But surely there would be survivors, right? And where would they get the necessary energy? Since there will be no one to look after them, the power stations, and with it the world’s electricity supply, would be cut off relatively quickly.
In fact, many of them would be turned off to avoid another disaster. However, with no one to oversee these procedures, nuclear power plants, their cooling waters, would be headed for a meltdown. Chernobyl-type scenarios would be seen everywhere around the planet.
All man-made objects would disappear, and only the ancient stone objects would survive
Most man-made objects, whether wood, plastic, metal, or anything other than stone, will simply disappear. Even on roads that will be overrun by vegetation in a few decades. Within only 10,000 years, of all remains, only those of stone will exist.
Is it any wonder that the structures we have inherited from the ancient world are buildings, monuments and statues carved from stone? But how many of our modern structures can survive thousands, even hundreds of thousands of years into the future? Ironically, it would be mostly buildings from antiquity that would still survive.
Myths and legends
Has there really been a major flood, even if only in the form of a few localized but significant flooding episodes that could have completely wiped out entire communities? Such natural disasters would certainly seem like the end of the world for those civilizations that experienced them.
And what do they have to do with stories of “gods” – higher beings with advanced technology who ruled over humanity? Are these legends true? Or could there be any truth to such stories? In short, we will see the possibility of survivors from such an “end of the world” situation.
What if the “gods” of the past were the survivors of an even older advanced civilization? Could this explain the power (or advanced technology) of the Gods? Or advanced knowledge of the gods? This is certainly an interesting concept.
If we look at the ancient Egyptians, it is perfectly obvious and even accepted by leading scholars, that they started their civilization already at the height of their power, and then suffered a permanent decline. For some scholars, who have been sidelined by most mainstream experts, this suggests that the Egyptians “picked up” the remains of an ancient, “lost” civilization.
Of these types of theories, further claims are generally accepted that such ancient structures as the Pyramids of Giza are more likely to be the monuments and buildings of an Atlantean-type society, as opposed to the work of the Egyptians themselves.
The survivors would be reduced to cavemen
Now, let’s face it, some people have survived the hypothetical catastrophe of the modern world. What will be done with them? They likely won’t deal with recovering old technology, or things of that nature. Chances are, once the system is down and the power is out, they are only concerned with their own survival.
They will no longer be at the top of the food chain. Without the aid of the modern abundance of technological equipment and advanced buildings, many surviving humans will be easy prey for hungry wild animals. Any survivors would be preoccupied with hunting and gathering whatever food they could find for their shelter.
As generations replace each other, humanity’s connection to the “old” world would be restored. By the third and fourth generation, chances are that memories of the pre-Earth catastrophe will be no different than what myths and legends are to us now. In short, life would start all over again.
Advanced ancient technology
Many mainstream historians do not accept the concept that many of the ancient civilizations, including the ancient Egyptians and Sumerians, at some point in the distant past had advanced technology. However, this concept is supported by a lot of evidence. We can see in devices such as the ‘Battery of Baghdad’ or traces of acids in the inner tunnels of the Pyramid of Giza, which suggest some kind of electrical energy belt.
But what about the many archaeological sites around the world that are said to show signs of nuclear explosions in the distant past? A prominent example is Mohenjo-Daro, which some researchers, especially David Davenport in his book “Atomic Destruction 2000 Years BC”, have pointed out that nuclear weapons were built and used long ago. This, of course, would suggest, as Davenport says, that a very advanced civilization existed.
