Mesoamerican traces of Atlantis

Recent global news releases about the “sensational” archaeological discoveries below the the “Pyramid of the Feathered Serpent” in Teotihuacan (Mexico) are not that sensational to me.  For decades, so-called “pseudoscientists” such as Graham Hancock and Erich von Daniken have been saying there is more to find below the Pyramids while Governments and Universities have categorically been dismissing the idea. What they have recently (2014) found below the main Pyramid is a secret tunnel and loads of artifacts. The tunnel is adorned with sparkling stones to symbolize stars. Up to 50 000 gems, artifacts and statues of immense value are currently being dug up. It’s funny that these artifacts are only coming to light now, as they have been digging there for the last 11 years (I`m a little skeptical if discoveries “coming to light” such a long time after an area has been probed. If anyone wanted to get rid of certain pieces of evidence there would have been ample time to do so). There have also been rumors of possible additional tunnels or chambers as well as huge granite doors that have not been opened yet.

So let’s back up for a moment and look at some of the History of the area. Teotihuacan has been ascribed to the Aztec, the earlier Toltec and currently it’s ascribed to “unknown”.

“Aztec” is an umbrella term for numerous ethnic groups that spoke the ancient Nahuatl language in the region that is today known as Mexico. Europeans became aware of them in the 15th and 16th Century, but they were present in Central America long before. The word “Aztec” was given because these people claimed to have originated from an “island in the east” called “Aztlan” that had sunken ages ago.

When the Spanish arrived, the Aztec Empire was already in decline. The center of their Empire was a city called Tenochtitlan, located on an island on Lake Texcoco (now an area of Mexico City). This is a model of the city showcased in the National Museum of Anthropology (Mexico City) and based upon the ruins found:

Atlantis Tenochtitlan

The origins of the Nahuatal-speaking people are unknown. Some groups can be traced to Northern Mexico and even to Southwestern USA, but beyond that the path is lost. It is claimed that their “mythological island of origin” is somewhere in northern Mexico, but there is no evidence within Aztec writings to indicate such. In my book I equate Atzlan with Atlantis for several reasons: The etymology of the word itself, the fact that it was located in the “eastern ocean”, their island having sunk in an ancient disaster, as well as the strange linguistic facts presented below. I have previously shown that they share words and stories with the Sumerians – a culture that is thousands of years old and on the other side of the world. That, and their fondness of building huge Pyramids would indicate that the “Aztecs” are much more ancient than “15th Century” (as commonly taught). Much of their History is lost because not only the Spanish but the Aztec rulers themselves ordered the burning of old texts (its an unfortunate trait of power-hungry people to want to destroy knowledge that references past rulers). Evidence shows that in their late stages, they practiced human sacrifice on a grand scale (which, along with book burning, is a pretty good indicator of the overall decline of their consciousness).

The Aztec say they have taken much of their culture from the Toltec civilization. Modern scholars claim that the history of the Toltec, as given by the Aztec, are “partially factual, partially mythological”. In other words, everything that agrees with modern academic dogma is considered “factual”, and anything that sounds too far out is considered “mythological”.

The Toltec are said to have come from “Tollan” the “field of reeds”. This is also the place the even older Maya claim to have come from. The ancient Egyptians refer to a sunken island “in the west” (from their perspective), as the “island of reeds”.

The Toltec called their mythological place of origin Tollan and they also gave the same name to the ancient city of Teotihuacan (images below), which was apparently inspired by that super-ancient “mythological place of origin”:

For a long time Teotihuacan was thought to have been constructed by the Toltec. More recent research however, has shown that the site is at least 2000 years old. That would be a 1000 years earlier than the Toltec were supposedly in their prime. Teotihuacan is a name given by the Aztec and means “birthplace of the gods”. The Mayans referred to it as looking like “the place of reeds”. (On another note, I have always wondered why words such as Teo (Aztec for God) and and Popul (Mayan for People) are so similar to their Latin counterparts).

It is unknown who built Teotihuacan. All that is known is that it is linked to “the gods” and a reference to the Mayas, Toltecs and Aztecs place of origin, the “field of reeds” (Atlantis). According to the Maya,” the first people” came from Tollan which was not only a place of reeds but a “place of seven caves”. This is relevant in that the number 7 always shows up in Atlantis-related stories (see book).

Now that archaeologists have finally uncovered chambers below the Pyramid, more information on who built them will surely arise.

The architecture and mythology of the Aztec, Toltec and Maya being near identical, I am not even sure they should be considered separate people.

Prior to the current discoveries, Robots equipped with lasers and infrared cameras have discovered hundreds of mysterious yellow spheres below one of the Pyramids.

It is unknown what the yellow spheres mean. Apparently many of the chambers and tunnels have yet to be excavated. The tunnels were apparently first discovered in 2005 and the yellow spheres in 2013.

Whether the Toltec had a hand at Teotihuacan or not, their own buildings are certainly similar in style, possibly inspired by older structures. The remains of the Toltec Pyramid at Tula:

These statues are officially referred to as “Atlantean Figures“, based on the architectural category of the same name.

I spent some time browsing the online Nahuatl-Dictionary. It has been my assertion that ancient events are encoded within language. The language is still spoken by approximately one and a half million people today.

Typing a number of Atlantis, Water and Flood related words into the Dictionary, this is what I got:

Atl (water)

Atla (ocean, large body of water)

Atlan (under water)

Atlaca (Sailors)

atlan nitecalaquia (to push someone underwater)

Atlahua (a spear-throwing god – relevant because the Greek Poseidon, the “father of Atlantis” was also a “spear-throwing god”)

Atlam Micqui (drowned in water)

Aatemi (to be filled with water, flooded)

Atl tlachinolli (water and scorched earth)

Atlaxilia (to flood a field with water)

Atitlan (in the water)

atitlanaquia (to submerge or put under water)

tlacahueyac (giant; “when a giant is seen, that is an omen you will soon die in battle”)

Queztalcoatl (the primary Aztec deity, literally “beautiful water serpent”)

Having previously shown similarities to Sumerian, here are some similaritiesof Aztec and Mayan to Ancient Egyptian. Mainstream linguists have not bothered to make such comparisons because we are commonly taught that “no such relationship can exist because these cultures had no contact”. And because “no such relationships can exist” similarities are dismissed as “coincidence”. Egyptian words are taken from the Egyptian Hieroglyphics Dictionary:

English Nahuatl Egyptian
House Calli Ka
Reed Acatl Akhat
Serpent Coatl Khut
Canoe Acal Aqai


English Mayan Egyptian
Day Ahau Ahau (Time)
Ancient Kings Ahaw Ahau (gods)
A ball game Hom Hem (ball)
Air Ikh Ikh (in the air)
Flower Nichim Nehem


There have been claims that the Mayan language is related to that of the Nagas (“snake people”) of ancient India and Tibet. The obscure 1968 book “Educaderos del Mundo” for example, shows how the language of the Nagas has numerous identical words to that of the Mayan. For example, counting from 1 to 10 in both languages we get the following:

Mayan Naga
Hun Hun
Ca Cas
Ox Ox
Can San
Ho Ho
Uc Usac
Uac Uac
Uaxac Uaxax
Bolom Bolam
Lahun Lahun


I was able to verify most of the Mayan translations with the Mayan Online Dictionary.

All of these correspondences combined are either evidence of ancient trans-oceanic travel or common origins (Atlantis).  They are not mere coincidence.

The tunnel of the Pyramid, as shown in recent news articles:

One of the reasons we do not know who built these Pyramids is because there is no writing on them or associated with them. Archaeologists have therefore concluded that “whoever built these Pyramids, had no writing” (the same claim is repeated in the Scientific American article linked above). In my mind, that’s a premature conclusion (if not an outright stupid one – just because we don’t inscribe all of our buildings does not mean we can’t write). We know so little about the Pyramids of Giza for the same reason: There is no writing about them nor on them. In my view, that’s because the Giza Pyramids predate ancient Egyptian culture and writing. They were built by a people whose style it was not to write on their Pyramids. Likewise, the Pyramid at Teotihuacan may predate Aztec, Toltec and Mayan culture or have been built by earlier versions of these cultures. Their writings say that they are built after the example of buildings in the “sunken land”. That would mean they were built by the direct descendants of Atlantis. And that would explain why nothing much is known about either this Pyramid or others around the world: They are just so old that reports of their building have gone lost.
