    Legends of the Hall of Records and the Sleeping Prophet

    The concept of an ancient, possibly “Atlantean” Hall of Records serving as a repository of occult knowledge, was first popularized by the famous American psychic and clairvoyant Edgar Cayce in the 1930s. In several of his readings, the “Sleeping Prophet” (as he became known), spoke of the deliberate burial of the records of Atlantean civilization at three locations on the planet: one on Atlantis (Poseidonis), another one in Egypt, and a third one in Yucatan or Central America. Although the story of the burial of the records is somehow confused, Cayce seems to refer to the destruction of the original Mesoamerican “Temple of Records”, and to the removal of the records to some other location. Authors John Van Auken and Lora Little further popularized the idea of an ancient “Hall of Records” in the Yucatan, basing their research on a literal interpretation of Cayce’s readings. The result of this research was a book published in 2000 and a TV documentary released a few years later, in which the two authors claimed the ancient site of Piedras Negras as the most likely location of Cayce’s Hall of Records. Piedras Negras is located a mere 35 kilometers (21 miles) downstream along the Usumacinta River from Yaxchilan, and is a much less studied and excavated site.

    The story of the “Hall of Records” begins with Atlantis. Near the end of the days of the Atlanteans, the readings explain: “… there came the first egress of peoples to the Pyrenees and into what later became the Egyptian dynasties.” Images from these areas seem to represent the disaster:

    “The first of the eruptions that awoke from the depth of the slow cooling earth, and that portion now near what would be termed the Sargasso Sea first went into the depths. With this there again came that egress of peoples that aided, or attempted to assume control, yet carrying with them all those forms of Amilius that he gained through that as for signs, for seasons, for days, for years. Hence we find in those various portions of the world even in the present day, some form of that as was presented by those peoples in that great development in this, the eden of the world [this reading is referring to astronomy and thereby associated with the development of the calendar]…that as for signs, for seasons, for days, for years.” (Edgar Cayce Readings 364-4)

    What these people carried were records of the movement of stars and constellations. (Edgar Cayce Readings 364-4)

    The readings tell us where they settled:

    “In those periods when the first change had come in the position of the land, there had been an egress of peoples from the Atlantean land and they built a city near the edge of the Sahara.” (Edgar Cayce Readings 5748-6)

    We also learn about the first pyramids built in Egypt. We discovered the reading of Miss [993] (in the Cayce readings, individual’s names are represented by numbers to protect their privacy), who had a past lifetime in Egypt during the period of the Great Pyramid’s construction and Ra-Ta was the priest (circa 10,500 BC, according to Cayce). The readings go on to describe two lifetimes before that one in the land of Og and another one in Egypt earlier when the first pyramid was built there. This proves that there were pyramids in Egypt before the Great Pyramid was built!

    The readings tell us that this same country had been submerged for nearly a quarter of a million years since civilization had been in this portion of the country. (341-9)

    When Ra-Ta and his people arrived in Egypt, they conducted archaeological research. (5748-6) They began to build upon those mounds that were discovered through research. With the storehouse or record house (where the records are still to be uncovered) there is a chamber or passage from the right forepaw to this entrance of the record chamber or record tomb. (5748-6)

    The readings explain that “the monuments were unearthed and added to from time to time…many were buried beneath shifting sands.” (341-9)

    “The one in the Atlantean land, that sank, which will rise and is rising again; another in the place of the records that leadeth from the Sphinx to the hall of records, in the Egyptian land; and another in the Aryan or Yucatan land, where the temple there is overshadowing same.” (2012-1)

    “For the entity's tomb then was a part of the Hall of Records, which has not yet been uncovered. It lies between—or along that entrance from the Sphinx to the temple—or the pyramid; in a pyramid, of course, of its own.” (2329-3)

    “Hence we find the entity…was the first to set the records that are yet to be discovered…and for the preservation of the data, that as yet to be found from the chambers of the way between the sphinx and the pyramid of records.” (1486-1)

    The Quest For The Metal Library

    Feature Articles –   The Quest For The Metal Library A system of tunnels and caves beneath Ecuador and Peru is reputed to hold an ancient treasure-house of artefacts including two libraries, one containing inscribed metal books and the other storing tablets of crystal.
    by Philip Coppens

    It was a major claim, and it did not go unchallenged. The story centred around Janos “Juan” Moricz, an aristocratic Argentinian-Hungarian entrepreneur who claimed that he had discovered a series of tunnels in Ecuador that contained a “Metal Library”. In a signed affidavit dated 8 July 1969, he spoke about his meeting with the Ecuadorian president, where he received a concession that allowed him total control over this discovery—provided he could produce photographic evidence and an independent witness that corroborated the discovery of the underground network. Newspapers reported on the expedition that Moricz had organised.

    In 1972, Moricz met with von Däniken and took him to a secret side-entrance through which they could enter into a large hall within the labyrinth. Apparently von Däniken never got to see the library itself, just the tunnel system. Von Däniken included the event in his book The Gold of the Gods:

    “The passages all form perfect right angles. Sometimes they are narrow, sometimes wide. The walls are smooth and often seem to be polished. The ceilings are flat and at times look as if they were covered with a kind of glaze… My doubts about the existence of the underground tunnels vanished as if by magic and I felt tremendously happy. Moricz said that passages like those through which we were going extended for hundreds of miles under the soil of Ecuador and Peru.”

    Neil Armstrong, inside the Tayos Cave, 1976

    “To begin with, I think that the cave of the Tayos is not a cave, but a work of the hand of man, there is nothing in nature that can resemble the Cave of the Tayos. It has the ceiling completely cut flat with a 90-degree angle to the wall. It is very similar to other tunnels of similar characteristics and age in other parts of the world, which leads us to think that before the Wisconsin glaciation there was a network of tunnels on the planet, but to accept this we would need to accept the existence—before said Glaciation—of a highly developed civilization. “

    The Dark Continent (暗(あん)黒(こく)大(たい)陸(りく)()()()()()(), Ankoku Tairiku) is a place that stretches beyond the Known World which is nested inside the gigantic Lake Mobius (located at the center of the Dark Continent). The ancestors of the human race apparently migrated from there to the Known World, as the deciphering of myths and the study of ancient ruins seem to testify. The giant Chimera Ant Queen came from there while it is speculated that the Magical Beasts also originated from the Dark Continent as well.

    The New Continent (新大陸, Shin Tairiku) is an island located in the Untamed Waters of Lake Mobius, and thus outside of the territory colonized by mankind.

    From human perspective, it lies before the Border Waters and the area controlled by the Gatekeeper, it is technically not part of the Dark Continent. Compared to the latter, it is believed to be a much safer zone, which is why the V6 passed it off as the actual Dark Continent for the public at large.

    n Chapter 359, the mentioned notion is reinforced by the fact that the New Continent, faked as Dark Continent to the general public

    Gourmet World (グルメ界, Gurume-kai) is the name given to a region consisting of over 70% of the Earth. In contrast to its relatively hospitable counterpart, the smaller Human World, the Gourmet World exclusively consists of extremely dangerous environments that most humans cannot occupy.

    In the Gourmet World there are eight incredibly strong beasts whose ancestors have ruled since ancient times, surviving through countless mass extinction events and are considered a force of nature themselves, gaining supremacy over members of their species as well as others. They are known as the Eight Kings who rule over the eight areas of the Gourmet World.

    The Dragon King (竜王 Ryūō) is the only known and the most powerful of all Derous and is the renowned ruler of Area 1. As the most powerful creature in Area 1, it holds absolute rule over one of the major areas in Gourmet World, making it a member of the Eight Kings

    Entering the Gourmet World is a nearly impossible task whether attempted by land, sea, or air. In the sky, massive walls of impassable cyclones mark the aerial border of the Gourmet World. By sea, the deadly poisonous ocean current "Poison Tide" renders ocean travel impossible. Only the land routes are considered passable. The three land routes that connect to the Gourmet World are Zabel Island's "Waterfall Basin of Life", Yutou Island's "Harbor of Evil Spirits" and the Wak Continent's "Three Way Road". Of the three, the "Waterfall Basin of Life" is comparatively the safest.

    The Harbor of Evil Spirits (悪霊たちの港) is a mysterious sea filled with dark ominous fog and countless wrecked ships that is located near the shore of Yutou Island and it is one of the only three land routes in the Human World that leads into the treacherous Gourmet World.

    Mutants are beings (Humans, Beasts or otherwise) that have been born with a mutation or mutated via other means and turned into beings that are physically and genetically unique amongst their own race.

    The most common types of mutants are beings who have been directly injected with Gourmet Cells that failed to adapt to their bodies which caused them to transform into monster-like beings. Beings who have become mutants through this method turn into monstrous beings that either still have a humanoid body or have become so mutated that they look like a completely different creature all together.

    The ancestors of the denizens of Hex Food World were once ordinary humans who were mutated by the Gourmet Nobles using Gourmet Cells that failed to adapt to their bodies, and the descendants of these ancient mutants would go on to become their own unique races.

    Scum Beasts are artificial lifeforms created by the Gourmet Corp. by combining the genetics of numerous animals together in order to create hideous and powerful mutant creatures who were solely designed for combat and servitude.

    The dreaded Death Gore species was said to have actually been born from a mutation and these beings existed solely to devour everything in their path. A variant of this species known as the Death Gore Chimera was an artificial mutant beast created by combining the DNA of several beasts with the Death Gore and this creature later merged with Kimera to create a very deadly humanoid mutant.

    The citizens and animals of Hex Food World all resemble creatures from Japanese myth and folklore and many have very diverse and weird appearances, but despite appearances, they are all very friendly. Some of the races that live here, such as Kappas and Onis actually have their own distinct settlements where their kind prospers, but it seems that the many races prefer to live alongside one another likely due to their shared history, making Hex Food World a boiling pot of diversity.

    The origin of the many monstrous inhabitants of the Hex Food World is directly related to the Nitro, as hundreds of thousands of years ago their ancestors were once ordinary humans with a Japanese-style culture who were kidnapped by the Blue Nitros' ancient Four Beasts and injected with Gourmet Cells in order to be used as slaves (and possibly as ingredients or fertilizer for Acacia's Full Course as well), however the cells failed to properly adapt to their bodies and they caused them to mutate greatly and thus they became monstrous-looking mutants. These mutants would eventually escape their enslavement and create their own society in the shadow of the ruler of Area 8, Heracles knowing that the Nitro would never dare to attack one of the Eight Kings. These mutant pioneers were then able to live peacefully and the descendants of these mutants would eventually become their own unique species and they became the inhabitants of Hex Food World.

Long ago, they formed a pact with Acacia himself and the legendary chef Froese.


    The Papyrus of Ani is a papyrus manuscript in the form of a scroll with cursive hieroglyphs and color illustrations that was created c. 1250 BCE, during the nineteenth dynasty of the New Kingdom of ancient Egypt. Egyptians compiled an individualized book for certain people upon their death, called the Book of Going Forth by Day, more commonly known as the Book of the Dead, typically containing declarations and spells to help the deceased in their afterlife. The Papyrus of Ani is the manuscript compiled for the Theban scribe Ani.

    The scroll was stolen from an Egyptian government storeroom in 1888 by Sir E. A. Wallis Budge, as described in his two-volume By Nile and Tigris, for the collection in the British Museum where it remains today. Before shipping the manuscript to England, Budge cut the seventy-eight-foot scroll into thirty-seven sheets of nearly equal size, damaging the scroll's integrity at a time when technology had not yet allowed the pieces to be put back together.

    "Earth is more commonly placed in a greenhouse state throughout the epochs, and the Earth has been in this state for approximately 80% of the past 500 million years, which makes understanding the direct causes somewhat difficult."

    "During an icehouse Earth, greenhouse gases tend to be less abundant, and temperatures tend to be cooler globally. The Earth is currently in an icehouse stage, as ice sheets are present on both poles and glacial periods have occurred at regular intervals over the past million years."


    Solar radiation management (SRM) projects are a type of climate engineering which seek to reflect sunlight and thus reduce global warming. Proposed methods include increasing the planetary albedo, for example using stratospheric sulfate aerosols. Restorative methods have been proposed regarding the protection of natural heat reflectors like sea ice, snow and glaciers with engineering projects. Their principal advantages as an approach to climate engineering is the speed with which they can be deployed and become fully active, their potential low financial cost, and the reversibility of their direct climatic effects.

    Solar radiation management projects could serve as a temporary response while levels of greenhouse gases can be brought under control by mitigation and greenhouse gas removal techniques. They would not reduce greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere

They are the overseers of Acacia's Full Course Menu, and those who injected the Earth with Gourmet Cells and created the Gourmet World. Long ago, they formed a pact with Acacia himself and the legendary chef Froese.

    Gourmet Cells (グルメ細胞 Gurume Saibō) are physical embodiment of savoriness and Appetite Energy, the source of life and all known ingredients. They were first discovered in the Gourmet Jellyfish by the "Gourmet God" Acacia 605 years ago. The cells have extreme regenerative and strength-enhancing qualities, can empower evolution, but most importantly greatly enhance flavor of any organism they are part of

    13.7 billion years ago, at the birth of the universe, the Gourmet Big Bang generated Gourmet Energy, the foundation of Gourmet Cells. Monster Trolls and Appetite Demons later developed to serve the Appetite.

    For over five billion years, Nitro have cultivated planets by administering Gourmet Cells and then stressing them with environmental disasters, like the Gourmet Solar Eclipse, and with predators, like Appetite Demons. The Nitro started the process on Earth several hundred million years ago when a meteorite containing Gourmet Cells struck the planet. They became source of all life and ingredients on the planet, also inducing incredible evolution of organisms and environment.

    From Chrono Cross
    "After 1000 A.D., large excavations carried out on Central Continent Zenan revealed Reptite dwellings and possibly the Tyranno Lair itself. Analysts noted that the Reptite civilization existed long before the first human settlements were formed and that the Reptites had acquired the advanced skill of architecture before becoming extinct in the Ice Age. The Reptites would exert much influence from beyond the grave, however, as another dimension existed in which Lavos never reached the planet, and the Reptites dominated and defeated the early humans instead."


    "The Reptites continued to prosper, eventually developing a philosophy of close, symbiotic relationship with nature. As the Reptites evolved over millions of years, they became Dragonians and created vast cities. Their ultimate achievement was the creation of Dinopolis, a floating city headed by the Dragon God, a machine that enabled control over the natural world. Dinopolis was dragged into the Keystone Dimension as part of Project Kid; the planet somehow shunted it there to act as a counterbalance against Chronopolis, which had just traveled backward in time after the Time Crash. The resulting battle would echo the fate of the Reptites millions of years before; the Chronopolis forces gutted the city and captured the Dragon God, whom they split up into six parts and used to terraform El Nido. The surviving Dragonians dispersed onto the new islands, where they mingled with the Chronopolis workers dispatched to populate the new paradise. Some become involved with the humans, resulting in a new Demi-human species. The Dragonians also continued to revere nature religiously and created several dwellings and fortresses that operated on Elements. Unfortunately, the introduction of settlers from Zenan in 920 A.D. disrupted their fragile way of life, and the remaining Dragonians died off. Their traditions were still maintained by Demi-humans, though by 1020 A.D., only the establishment known as Fort Dragonia remained operative." "After the Dragon God was defeated and returned to the belly of the Time Devourer, the only Reptite influences left in the world were the presence of Demi-humans and the physical architecture remaining around El Nido."

    Kirin http://yokai.com/kirin/

    TRANSLATION: none; based on the Chinese name for the same creature

    HABITAT: areas ruled by a wise and benevolent leader
    DIET: purely vegetarian; never harms another creature

    APPEARANCE: One of the rarest, most awesome, and most powerful creatures ever known in East Asia is the unicorn-like kirin. It is a regal animal, holy and highly revered, and often considered a god in its own right. The kirin is a chimerical beast resembling a deer with scales like a dragon’s covering its body. It has a tail like an ox’s and a flowing mane. Its body and mane are covered in brilliant holy fire. Its face is the picture of utter serenity.

    BEHAVIOR: A gentle animal, the kirin never eats the flesh of other beings, and it takes great care never to tread on any living thing, even lowly insects. When it walks, it does so without trampling a single blade of grass. Its beauty is only surpassed by its rarity; kirin only appear during periods of world peace, during the reigns of noble and enlightened rulers, in lands owned by wise and benevolent people, or as heralds of a golden age. Kirin never harm good and pure souls, but they are swift and fierce to attack if threatened, breathing holy fire from their mouths.

    The longma was a fabled winged horse with dragon scales in Chinese mythology. Seeing a longma was an omen of a legendary sage-ruler, particularly one of the Three Sovereigns and Five Emperors.
    A cockatrice is a mythical beast, essentially a two-legged dragon or serpent-like creature with a rooster's head. Described by Laurence Breiner as "an ornament in the drama and poetry of the Elizabethans", it was featured prominently in English thought and myth for centuries.

    The Horned Serpent appears in the mythologies of many Native Americans. Details vary among tribes, with many of the stories associating the mystical figure with water, rain, lightning and thunder. Horned Serpents were major components of the Southeastern Ceremonial Complex of North American prehistory

    Leviticus 17.1-6

    17The Lord spoke to Moses: 2Speak to Aaron and his sons and to all the people of Israel and say to them: This is what the Lord has commanded. 3If anyone of the house of Israel slaughters an ox or a lamb or a goat in the camp, or slaughters it outside the camp, 4and does not bring it to the entrance of the tent of meeting, to present it as an offering to the Lord before the tabernacle of the Lord, he shall be held guilty of bloodshed; he has shed blood, and he shall be cut off from the people. 5This is in order that the people of Israel may bring their sacrifices that they offer in the open field, that they may bring them to the Lord, to the priest at the entrance of the tent of meeting, and offer them as sacrifices of well-being to the Lord. 6The priest shall dash the blood against the altar of the Lord at the entrance of the tent of meeting, and turn the fat into smoke as a pleasing odor to the Lord

    If anyone of the house of Israel or of the aliens who reside among them eats any blood, I will set my face against that person who eats blood, and will cut that person off from the people. 11For the life of the flesh is in the blood; and I have given it to you for making atonement for your lives on the altar; for, as life, it is the blood that makes atonement.

    Terra Cimmeria is a large Martian region, centered at 34.7°S 145°ECoordinates: 34.7°S 145°E and covering 5,400 km (3,400 mi) at its broadest extent. It covers latitudes 15 N to 75 S and longitudes 170 to 260 W. It lies in the Eridania quadrangle. Terra Cimmeria is one part of the heavily cratered, southern highland region of the planet. The Spirit rover landed near the area.

    The word Cimmerium comes from an ancient Thracian seafaring people. The land was always covered in clouds and mist.

    A high altitude visual phenomena, probably a condensation cloud, was seen above this region in late March 2012. NASA tried to observe it with some of its Mars orbiters, including the THEMIS instrument on the 2001 Mars Odyssey spacecraft and MARCI on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.

    Terra Cimmeria is the location of gullies that may be due to recent flowing water. Gullies occur on steep slopes, especially on the walls of craters. Gullies are believed to be relatively young because they have few, if any craters. Moreover, they lie on top of sand dunes which themselves are considered to be quite young. Usually, each gully has an alcove, channel, and apron. Some studies have found that gullies occur on slopes that face all directions, others have found that the greater number of gullies are found on poleward facing slopes, especially from 30-44 S.

    Although many ideas have been put forward to explain them, the most popular involve liquid water coming from an aquifer, from melting at the base of old glaciers, or from the melting of ice in the ground when the climate was warmer. Because of the good possibility that liquid water was involved with their formation and that they could be very young, scientists are excited. Maybe the gullies are where we should go to find life.

    There is evidence for all three theories. Most of the gully alcove heads occur at the same level, just as one would expect of an aquifer. Various measurements and calculations show that liquid water could exist in aquifers at the usual depths where gullies begin. One variation of this model is that rising hot magma could have melted ice in the ground and caused water to flow in aquifers. Aquifers are layer that allow water to flow. They may consist of porous sandstone. The aquifer layer would be perched on top of another layer that prevents water from going down (in geological terms it would be called impermeable). Because water in an aquifer is prevented from going down, the only direction the trapped water can flow is horizontally. Eventually, water could flow out onto the surface when the aquifer reaches a break—like a crater wall. The resulting flow of water could erode the wall to create gullies. Aquifers are quite common on Earth. A good example is "Weeping Rock" in Zion National Park Utah.[

    Most of what we know about the ancient Thracians comes from surviving ancient Greek and Roman sources.

    The Thracians were an ancient ethnic group that inhabited parts of what is today European Turkey and the extreme north of Greece, but the vast majority of Thracian land is in what is today Bulgaria. Although Thrace as an extant group seemingly disappears with the same third- to seventh-century Slavic, Gothic, and Visigothic invasions that felled the Roman Empire, many Bulgarians can still trace their bloodlines and DNA to ancient Thracians communities.

    Thracian tribes fought amongst each other and they allied themselves with the Greeks against other Thracian tribes. Those allied with the Greeks were more civilized and they were usually established in settlements along the Thracian coast. The interior tribes were known as savages, retaining their barbarous habits even until the Roman period.

    Pre-historic Bulgaria

    From Neolithic times the land we currently know as Bulgaria was occupied by primitive tribes then at around 3000BC Thracians arrived and despite invasion from various warring tribes thrived and increased in number. In 29 BC that well known hero Spartacus fought off the Roman invasion but was eventually overcome and Thrace became part of the Roman Empire.

    When the Roman Empire eventually fell, Thrace came under the authority of Byzantium. Later Slavs and Turkic-Tartar peoples arrived from the Russian plains, the most notable being the Bulgars who, uniting with the Slavic tribes, defeated the Byzantines and formed the first Bulgarian state. During this time Bulgaria flourished and became the Slavic cultural centre. In 886 AD it was decreed by Tsar Boris 1 that Bulgaria should have its own alphabet, the Cyrillic alphabet was born. Named after a Byzantine missionary, St Cyril, who along with his brother St Methodius devised the ancient Glagolitic alphabet, thought to be a derivative of the old Greek alphabet. The Cyrillic alphabet was adopted and adapted by various Eastern European countries including Russia, Macedonia and Serbia. This is known as the First Bulgarian Kingdom. The Byzantines invaded again and once again reduced Bulgaria to an annex.

    One notable cult, attested from Thrace to Moesia and Scythia Minor, is that of the "Thracian horseman", also known as the "Thracian Heros", at Odessos (Varna) attested by a Thracian name as Heros Karabazmos, a god of the underworld usually depicted on funeral statues as a horseman slaying a beast with a spear

    Known Thracian deities include:

    • Sabazios, the Thracian reflex of Indo-European Dyeus, identified with Heros Karabazmos, the "Thracian horseman". He gained a widespread importance especially after the Roman conquest. After Christianity was adopted, the symbolism of Heros continued as representations of Saint George slaying the dragon (compare Uastyrdzhi/Tetri Giorgi in the Caucasus).
    • Zibelthiurdos (also "Zbelsurdos", "Zibelthurdos"): a god recognized as similar to the Greek Zeus as a wielder of lightning and thunderbolts.
    • Kotys ("Cotys", "Cotto", "Cottyto", "Cottytus"), a goddess worshipped with much revelry by Thracian tribes such as the Edonians in the festival Cotyttia.[4] A cult of Cottyto existed in classical Athens. According to Greek sources her priests were called baptes or "washers" because their pre-worship purification rites involved bathing. Her worship included midnight orgies (orgia). Her name is believed to have meant "war, slaughter", akin to Old Norse Höðr "war, slaughter".
    • Pleistoros, to which prisoners of war were sacrified.

    Several Thracian deities show close analogy to the Greek cult of Dionysus, Orpheus and Persephone (the Dionysian Mysteries):

    • Bendis was a Thracian goddess of the moon and the hunt whom the Greeks identified with Artemis, and hence with the other two aspects of formerly Minoan goddesses, Hecate and Persephone.
    • Zemelā is probably a cognate of the Proto-Indo-European Earth goddess Dhéǵhōm, akin to Lithuanian Žemyna and Latvian Zemes Māte, both of which are "Mother Earth" goddesses. Likely there has been an early Semele Goddess in proto-Slavic mythology as 'earth' to this day is "земля" (zemlja) in Russian, "земља" (zemlja) in Serbian and "земя" (zemja) in Bulgarian.[citation needed] Also compare Phrygian 'Zemelo'.

    Known Dacian theonyms include:

    • Zalmoxis, identified by some with the thunder-god Gebeleïzis, an important god of the Dacians and Thracians.
    • Derzelas (also "Darzalas") was a chthonic god of health and human spirit's vitality.

    Kogaionon was the name of a holy mountain of the Dacians.

    Paleo-Balkan mythology is the group of religious beliefs of the Paleo-Balkan peoples, including Illyrian, Thracian and Dacian mythologies, prior to their assimilation by the Roman pantheon and subsequent Christianization.

    The Illyrian beliefs stems from the Proto-Indo-European mythology. Alongside the Thracian and Dacian beliefs, it constitutes part of the Paleo-Balkan mythologies. Albanians preserved traces of Illyrian religious symbolism and ancient Illyrian religion is perhaps one of the underlying sources from which Albanian folk beliefs have drawn nourishment. One can find several traces of Illyrian cults in the religious and superstitious beliefs among Croats, Bosniaks, Serbs, and Montenegrins today.

    Tempe Terra is a heavily cratered highland region in the northern hemisphere of the planet Mars. Located at the northeastern edge of the Tharsis volcanic province, Tempe Terra is notable for its high degree of crustal fracturing and deformation. The region also contains many small shield volcanoes, lava flows, and other volcanic structures.

    The region is named after the albedo feature Tempe, first used by astronomer E.M. Antoniadi in 1930 to describe a bright patch of terrain centered near 40°N, 70°W. The name comes from the Vale of Tempe, a valley located south of Mount Olympus and celebrated by the ancient Greeks for its beauty. The International Astronomical Union (IAU) formally designated the region Tempe Terra in 1979. Terra (pl. terrae) is a Latin descriptor term used in planetary geology for continent-like highland regions (i.e., extensive land masses) on other planets.

    The Savage Land was created by the alien Nuwali at the behest of the other-dimensional, nigh-omnipotent aliens known as the Beyonders who sought to observe the process of evolution under relatively controlled conditions and had the Nuwali set up a number of game preserves on several planets. One of these planets was Earth during the Triassic period where the Nuwali chose a valley in Antarctica surrounded by active volcanoes, where they installed a number of advanced technological devices in order to maintain a tropical climate. The aliens then stocked the area with all manner of Earth life over the following several millennia. They also brought over the Man-Apes, earlier hominid ancestors of Homo sapiens.

    The Beyonders eventually grew bored with the experiment, and the Nuwali stopped maintaining the Savage Land during the Late Pleistocene (the Ice Age era). However, the self-maintaining technology that allowed the pocket of tropical climate was left running, and many species which became extinct in other areas of the Earth continued to thrive within the Savage Land.

    Later on, a group of human survivors from Atlantis sailed to Antarctica before the "Great Cataclysm" which sank Atlantis into the ocean. There, they discovered a cavern where they found an immense climate-controlling device and harnessed the technology used to keep the Savage Land's volcanoes working. They named their location "Pangea", which is Atlantean for "paradise".

    They mastered genetic engineering, which had been used on the Man-Apes when the Nuwali were still maintaining the Savage Land area. They used their genetic engineering techniques to transform other Savage Land inhabitants like the Golden People, the Lizard Men, the Reptile Men, the Tubantis, and others. The Atlanteans then forced them to work for them until these animal people revolted. After a time of war, the animal people demanded civil rights and the Atlanteans used technology to expand the Savage Land's surface area for the animal people to live in. When the Great Cataclysm struck, the Atlantean empire fell and thanks to the machines, the Savage Land locations were spared from sinking into the sea.

    In more recent years, the Savage Land was rediscovered by Lord Robert Plunder, who took back a sample of the metal known as "anti-metal" or "Antarctic vibranium" with him. This mysterious metal had the ability to produce vibrations which would liquefy all other metals. Fleeing from those who sought to steal this discovery, Plunder took his eldest son Kevin with him for a second trip into the Savage Land. Unfortunately, the elder Plunder was killed by a local tribe of Man-Apes.
