Our 21st century world is engaged in an extraordinary upsurge in the use of advanced technologies. The pace of technical advancement is dizzying, with startling new developments appearing every year. From a karmic perspective, this is connected to the return opportunity for mankind to deal with the explosion of scientific knowledge last seen in the ancient civilization of Atlantis. Now the final sinking of Atlantis occurred about 11,600 years ago but the actual timeline of this karmic cycle is tied to a progression through all 12 signs of the Zodiac, going back approximately 25,000 years. In this ancient time, there was an upsurge in the mental processing ability of mankind. Beyond the natural evolutionary progression occurring for the human race there were outside interventions. The most obvious one, (which is also happening now for our planet), was an increase in the visitations and contacts with extra terrestrial beings. Advanced knowledge and technology was seen and shared.
