Life's Biggest Unsolved Mystery

What happens when we die?

Will we know all that we knew when we were alive?

Or are all of the cellular chemical interactions that cause memory doomed to die along with the physical body?

Will you know it if the entity men call "the soul" journeys to "heaven" or "hell"?

Think of someone you know who has passed on. Your uncle. Your mother. Your child. A celebrity. It could have been last week, last month, last year. It could have been decades ago.

The fact that YOU remember them and perhaps have been driven to learn more about them speaks volumes.

The fact that one single human: a Jesus, a Mohammed, a Plato, can impact society to the extent he is still remembered thousands of years later is no small feat!

And one of time's greatest mysteries may now be unlocked via understanding of what a tsunami is and what kind of damage it can do: thanks to Plato, we can begin to believe ther actually was a place called Atlantis!
"Atlantis, a land of peace, rich in commerce, advanced in knowledge, dominate over the surrounding islands and continents. The people of Atlantis became complacent and their leaders arrogant; in punishment the Gods destroyed Atlantis, flooding it and submerging the island in one day and night.

It was Plato, the Greek philosopher who brought to the world the story of the lost continent, and was the first to use the term "Atlantis". His story began to unfold for him around 355 B.C. He wrote about this land called Atlantis in two of his dialogues, Timaeus and Critias, around 370 B.C. Plato said that the continent lay in the Atlantic Ocean near the Straits of Gibraltar until its destruction 10,000 years previous."[source]
I would venture to guess there are many more mysteries waiting to be unlocked.

Things hiding in plain sight.

  1. Dave,

    "A live dog is better than a dead lion, for the dog knows that he shall die; but the lion knows not anything. In the day that a man dies, he perishes. Even his love, his hate, and his envy. He has nothing more to do with anything under the sun." - Ecclesiastes.

    "But blessed are those, who take part in the First Resurrection, for over them The Second Death hath no power." - Revelation.

    As for the mythology of Atlantis, doesn't it sound somewhat similar to another story? Just think about it....

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
