Indeed, stepped pyramids represent the Holy Mountain, itself a volcano whose slopes were terraced for agricultural reasons.
This Holy Mountain is no other than Mt. Atlas and, more exactly, Mt. Meru. Mt. Meru is, as we already said, the sacred mountain of the Hindus and the Buddhists of India, Indonesia and the Far East in general. The legend of Mount Meru subsumes the tragedy of Atlantis. Attracted to that volcanic peak like flies to honey, the Atlanteans there met their doom eventually. When their volcano exploded, killing them en masse, and extinguishing their formidably advanced civilization, the Atlanteans disappeared from the scene. But they left behind their legend, which is as undieing as the smile of the Cheshire cat.
The tradition of terraced agriculture symbolized by the stepped pyramids is encountered even in nations that had no volcanoes and, even less, terrace based agriculture. Such was the case of Mesopotamia and Egypt. Their fascination with these two features can only be the result of an intensive Atlantean influence. The legendary Civilizing Heroes of these nations personages such as Thoth, Osiris, Dercetto and the Oannes were indeed Atlanteans mythified as gods and identified with the Nagas (or Titans) of Indonesia.
The first Egyptian pyramid, the one of Zozer, was a stepped pyramid which corresponds in both shape and ritual function with the ones of Indonesia (Borobudur) and Southeast Asia (Angkor Vat, Angkor Thom, Bakong, etc.). As we see, there can be hardly any doubt that the tradition of pyramid building derives from that of terraced agriculture and that both traditions originated in Indonesia, the true site of Atlantis, of Eden, and of the origin of Agriculture. How else could the tradition of terrassed agriculture have reached Egypt and Babylon, where it never existed but from the Far East, where it was developed? Whence else could it have reached both the Old and the New Worlds so early in time?
The Hanging Gardens of Babylon one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World were no other thing than a terraced mountain created artificially. The Babylonian ziggurats (or “temple-mountains”) were indeed stepped pyramids representing the same idea. The same thing also obtains in Egypt and in the Americas.
Queen Hatshepsut also built her replica of the “Garden of Lebanon”, which is none but the Garden of Eden replicated by Queen Semiramis. King Solomon, in keeping with this ancient tradition, also built his own copy of the Garden of Eden (primeval “Lebanon”) near his palace, in a legendary Jerusalem that never was indeed, except in the Atlantean tradition, where it is just an alter name for Atlantis’ capital city.
The Egyptians often represented such “gardens” by an effigy of Osiris planted with corn, his gift to humanity. Osiris, the dying-resurrecting god of the Holy Mountain was, like Atlas, considered to be the Pillar of Heaven (Tet). Indeed, the Egyptian Tale the Two Brothers is an almost verbatim replica of the one of Atlas and Gadeiros, the many-named co-rulers of Atlantis according to Plato. The two brothers contend, and one kills the other, who later resurrects from among the dead. As we see, this duel corresponds to the one of Osiris and Seth, as well as its many counterparts. But all these are inded allegories of the War of Atlantis, where the two brothers are the “Greeks” and the Atlanteans, who fight to the bitter end and to their own mutual destruction.
