The legend of atlantis Presentation Transcript

  • 1. The legend of Atlantis A story of the greatest sailing civilization in the western world.
  • 2. The convection current of a volcanic island, when paired with an urban heat island of a burgeoning sailing city, provided sailing winds to bring ships into harbor more frequently than in any other city.
  • 3. As the city grew and it’s commerce became steady, the sails of the trade ships and the construction and sails and flags of the city allowed for the storage of energy within the urban air and steady winds day and night, day in and day out, year in and year out. This was this way because the friction of the sails and structures transferred the convective energy back upstream as heat. The energy remained within the sailed area as long as the friction was maintained. The energy of the volcano was also a major factor.
  • 4. Eventually above the city became it’s hallmark, a great fire in the sky! The second sun of atlantis! The stored energy become so intense above the city that the particles of dust the air brought through began to burn, and because the citizens of atlantis understood the phenomenon, as it was practiced in other cultures, they used their sails to make full use of it.
  • 5. The volcano allowed for atlantis to create the phenomenon as a much smaller city than other cities needed to be. The volcano also created a problem. The heat from the second sun interacted with the geo-thermal heat. If the second sun became too intense, the city would be overcome by geo-thermal heat.
  • 6. This was known by other cultures who had used second suns to power sails. Eventually the economy of Atlantis became so great that a nearby culture would not stand for the influence. They forced the atlantians into a decision by laying siege to atlantis with intent to conquer or destroy it.
  • 7. The atlantians could only defend themselves using the power of their second sun. But as they sailed more, the second sun became more intense, as more energy became stored within it. It was assumed by the attackers that the atlantians would surrender before the sun would cause their volcanic home to burst (it was common knowledge among these cultures that this would happen), but in order to put them into the position to force a surrender, they had to be within the zone of the volcanoes destruction were it to burst. The atlantians were not willing to serve the foreign culture, and chose to hold until the volcano burst. They knew they would die long before it could have happened, but they also knew the attackers would as well, to the last man, and they did not see fit to enter into slavery.
  • 8. Following the loss of atlantis, it became the goal of a secret organization to prevent the re-creation of such a disaster. The loss of atlantis caused economic strife and cultural failure around the known world. The population of the world decreased significantly due to the loss in world trade. Disease and barbarianism ran rampant. It was thought that if the population were kept down well below the technologic potential, then such disasters of dependency would be avoided. However much knowledge that was once common had become secret, and many questions that if answered could bring prosperity remained unanswered. In addition, when the knowledge was discovered, it was routinely contained, sometimes with violence.
  • 9. It became a common practice to give credit to reasons other than the knowledge that was hidden as to why various structures were built or practices were put into place. Most often religion. Although the decisions of the population are often askew because of what they are told, it is thought that in the end it is better than the alternative, regular apocalypse.
