Subsequent research has shown that it could have been built as early as 10,500 BC by survivors of a great catastrophe that occurred at about the time when, according to Plato, the Lost Civilization of Atlantis was destroyed.

Here is a groundbreaking attempt to understand how these long forgotten peoples thought how they felt and how they communicated on a universal plane
