I believe they had electricity in Atlantean times but the source of it was crystals; vast man made towers of pure quartz crystal that could be programmed to perform a diverse variety of functions. It could be used for good or evil, just like atomic power today.
Fortunately I'm not a scientist who lays their academic and professional credibility on the line by making such a statement! And since I'm only telling you what I believe, the worst you can do is argue that I'm somewhat insane! Well so be it. I know I'm unique within the vast mass of humans who inhabit the earth and I guess that's not so far from being a little odd anyway!
But you can test my theory - or at least prove that crystals give off energy. Acquire a pendulum. A crystal pendant suspended from a piece of fine chain works very well. But most anything (try your wedding ring) suspended from a fine chain or even a piece of cotton will work. I use a crystal pendant hung on a 2 inch(approx) piece of chain from a broken necklet.
Hold the end of the chain firmly between thumb and forefinger and suspend it over a quartz crystal point and see what happens. From hanging perfectly still the pendulum will start moving, backwards and forwards at first, and then in circles which become quite animated and the energy of it can be felt clearly in thumb and forefinger.
My logical mind suspects that the larger the crystal the more powerful the energy it emits.
My imagination takes over and says, what if this energy could be harnessed and channelled as we harness and channel electricity today? Why couldn't it be? Just because currently we are the most advanced civilisation to have lived on earth (apparently; or by OUR estimation) does this give us claim to a higher intelligence than any who have gone before? I think even scientists are beginning to admit this is not so. And since all evidence for or against a civilisation more advanced than stone age man inhabiting the earth in antediluvian times was sluiced from the planet by the Great Flood I can imagine my own reality and state that this is how it was - at least in a work of fiction!
Warning! Creating worlds becomes an addiction...! A bit like playing God, I suppose!
