Crystals and the Atlantians
Okay. You are probably not going to believe me. Which is fine. But this one is so cool.
I learned as a kid that Atlantis was run on crystals. They had all kinds of cool ancient tech that they used crystals to power it all.
Yes. You heard me right. Crystals. Rocks.
Now, if you wear a watch and it is an analogue one, I want you to look at it. Or an old school analogue wall-clock. Either one should have a word on the dial somewhere. Should say Quartz.
Now, if you don't know, I'll tell ya. Quartz is crystal.
And your mobile/cell phones. They have sim cards in them. And those sim cards have little gold bits. Those gold bits are? Computer chips.
Your computer has them too. And if you drive, you car will have loads of computer chips in them.
And computer chips are made of Silicon. And Silicon is just another name for? Quartz.
Your television will have them, your microwave, everything.
Our entire culture is built up and around these technological bits of crystal.
So, it doesn't seem quite so preposterous that the Atlantians powered their culture with crystals, does it?
