Beautiful patterns formed by powder substance, from sound emitted by a frequency transmitter. Sound waves/vibration given visual medium. The higher the frequency, the more complex the geometric pattern. Nerdy dorian9 theory: crop circles were created using a similar method from an extra terrestial aircraft using ultra high frequency sound inaudible to humans.

The concept of Atlantis is one of the most powerful and pervasive ideas in the western psyche. If Atlantis had not existed, we would need to create the Lost Continent, so important is this mythos to us. Indeed, in the science fiction universe of Star Trek, this is exactly what the government of Earth and the United Federation of Planets began doing in the mid–twenty–fourth century CE, geo–engineering a new continent in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.1
More recently, on U.S. television’s longest running science fiction program, Stargate SG–1, humanity discovers that Atlantis was an ancient city capable of interstellar flight, created by our distant ancestors who then subsequently ascended to the psychic realm.2 In the spin–off program Stargate Atlantis, which began in 2004, an international team from Earth re–colonizes the lost city, now in a distant galaxy, and inherits both the successes and mistakes of “the Ancients,” our Atlantean forebearers.3
Both of these very popular programs, as well as the myriad of novels and films portraying Atlantis or Atlantean themes, demonstrate the immense place the Lost Continent has in the hearts and minds of the western world, and arguably in much of our planet.

The atrocities we are witnessing in the Islamic world and the Middle East really are the worst we can imagine. But forget radical extremists abroad for a moment. What about us? Not all of us in the Western world are wholly exempt from regimented thinking and religious arrogance. A mindset has surfaced here in our own country, where we should know better, and, more importantly, where we can certainly do better.
