Atlantis, what is Plato’s mistake? Where to find the remains of the Atlantean civilization?

Since the time of the ancient Greeks, this mystery has been haunting mystery lovers. The eternal question is already two and a half thousand years old. The first to write about Atlantis was the great ancient Greek philosopher Plato, on whose writings today’s researchers and seekers of the sunken island are based. All that Plato knew about the mysterious Atlantis is told in his two dialogues “Critias”and ” Timaeus”. In them, Plato’s ancestor Critias recalls conversations between the ancient Greek sage Solon and an unnamed Egyptian priest. The conversation took place in the VI century BC. The Egyptian told, referring to the sacred Egyptian texts,that there was a great country of Atlantis, which lay behind the pillars of Hercules, which perished in a terrible catastrophe. . “…There was an island lying in front of that Strait which is called in your language the pillars of Hercules. This island was larger than Libya and Asia combined. Continue reading

Autumn sketches, or fortune-Telling on coffee grounds

On a typical October evening, I was rushing to the store to restock my groceries. Hesitating at the newly opened tea and coffee Department, I caught the thought: “I’ll Come in!”A friendly girl, the owner of the coffee Paradise, immediately drew attention to me. I asked a lot of questions. While the girl was patiently describing the next type of coffee, with large, as if toy grains, a bitter aroma of rosemary and dry cream, a pretty woman entered the glass doors. At the word “Robusta,” she raised her eyebrows and, speaking specifically to me, began to take a lively interest in the presence of Arabica and that ” strange kind of coffee you mentioned.” What can I say, in the coffee business, I’m still a practitioner, I still have to learn the theory. Although the house has a large encyclopedia with a soft matte cover and juicy pictures of coffee… And the woman apparently decided that during my stay in the Department, I have already studied everything that is possible, and is ready to advise the best.

“Dark Venice”: a mystical photo cycle by Alessandro Cancian

The legendary Russian rock musician Edmund shklyarsky claimed that “the most ringing cry is silence, the brightest light is night”. Alessandro Cancian, a talented photographer from Toronto, recently presented a series of photos “Dark Venice”, in which the beautiful Italian city is plunged into darkness… it would Seem that you can distinguish? But no, in the absence of lights, it looks completely different.

We are so used to the flickering of hundreds of lights, to colorful storefronts and brightly lit streets, that we simply do not imagine what cities could look like without this artificial tinsel. In the dark, the smallest, barely noticeable details take on an almost mystical significance, and the luxurious architecture looks intriguing.

Photographer Alessandro Cancian managed to create an extraordinary series of works imbued with romance and mysticism. The city on the water immediately transformed, becoming the abode of angels and demons, dreams and fears, beauty and frightening unknown. Faint glimpses of light, shadows sprawled on deserted streets, statues that look like ghosts – riddles that curious viewers have yet to solve. Continue reading
