I am from a race of people, that was considered a super human race from long ago. I have lived for many centuries, so my people possessed the secret to eternal life. Atlantis, long gone, but never forgotten. At the time Atlantis thrived, I was a high priest, so I had hands to all the secrets and knowledge that Atlantis possessed. But, the secret of eternal life, was mine, and mine alone because of my status, I was the only one that really knew the secret. So, I have lived history for many many years.
I, so vividly remember the day of the demise of Atlantis. I remember, I was in the temple, and the earth started violently shaking. I was one of the lucky few, lucky enough to make as escape. I was watching, when a monstrous tsunami, totally engulfed the whole island, and the whole island went into the sea. Until this very day, access to Atlantis, is not accessible, because Atlantis now resides on the ocean floor. Protected by the pressure of the sea, so as of yet mankind cannot get to it. If mankind, even attempted to reach the depth of the city, the water pressure, would immediately make them implode.
After the total demise of Atlantis, a few of us survived, going our different ways through out the world. Some made it to Mexico, Britain, South America, and my adopted home, Egypt. Gosh, live here is sure different from my life in Atlantis.
The land, I chose to remain in, at the time was very primitive. So primitive, I had to step in and introduce new ideas to the people. My brothers and sisters from Atlantis, they chose other lands, thinking the same thing as me, making life as simple as can be. Just look around at all the ancient devices, the pyramids, and all the wonders. Could ancient man have achieved this on their own? I think not. The pharaoh at the time in Egypt, made me his royal doctor and architect. With these titles, I had the power to bring everything up to date, from the primitive ways the Egyptians possessed.
I chose to serve the kingdom of Egypt, because the peoples here really showed a lot of promise. Egyptians are a very religious people, so after a while, they looked to me as a mortal God. I could never let my secret be known, because mankind would have imprisoned me, because I was far more advanced, this would have been done, in order to find out my secrets.
To make my transition easier, I let the Pharaoh think I was some kind of genius. I introduced the architecture of the pyramids, and the Sphinx was built, to guard the Giza Plateau. Others from Atlantis, introduced other ancient nations to pyramids and other things, causing mankind to think they were some kind of genius
When I escaped from Atlantis, I had the opportunity to grab a few papyrus, these hold secrets, that mankind, in this point of their evolution, would have never understood. I guard these, with my very life, because some of the secrets written down, were for my eyes only. So, I take it upon myself, to protect these most important documents.
As, I am the one that designed the Sphinx, I know all the secrets of this majestic guardian. Right between the front feet of the Sphinx, there is a hidden little room. I put this in to guard the ancient Egyptian secrets. I put the valuable documents here. To protect them, and hope when found, mankind will have evolved enough to understand them.
Not only do I maintain the secret to eternal life, I can change my appearance as often as I like. Alexander the Great, Imhotep, Napolean, Einstein, who do you think they were? They were me. These are but a few of the identities, I have taken through out history.
And now here I am today, having not being able just to watch history, but live it. I can't tell you my name I use today, because then my identify would be known, but I can tell you, I live in Alaska and help in the study of whales. Me, knowing how intelligent these creatures are.
But for five thousand years, the secrets of life, have been kept safe, hidden at the feet of the Sphinx. I don't think even modern man can get to the scrolls, that contain all these marvelous secrets. I don't even think modern man can understand them. Through out time, my identify has remained a secret. Modern man is very curious and I refuse to be a lab rat. So, I will infinitely go on, with such secrets buried deep within my soul.
