Scientists Find Strange ‘Yellow Brick Road’ At The Bottom On The Pacific Ocean

Yellow Brick Road Found On The Bottom Of The Pacific Ocean Described As ‘Road To Atlantis’

A remote-controlled craft operated by the team at nonprofit The Ocean Exploration Trust was 1,000m below the surface at the time when they found something strange.

The scientists found a strange yellow bricks road at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean.

They liken the formation to the “yellow brick road” seen in The Wizard of Oz. They also describe it as a “road to Atlantis.” The picture is currently going viral on the internet, garnering mixed reactions from folks online.

Atlantis is a fictional island mentioned in an allegory on the hubris of nations in Plato’s works Timaeus and Critias, wherein it represents the antagonist naval power that besieges “Ancient Athens”, the pseudo-historic embodiment of Plato’s ideal state in The Republic.

In the story, Athens repels the Atlantean attack unlike any other nation of the known world, supposedly bearing witness to the superiority of Plato’s concept of a state. The story concludes with Atlantis falling out of favor with the deities and submerging into the Atlantic Ocean.

Atlantis has become a byword for any and all supposed advanced prehistoric lost civilizations and continues to inspire contemporary fiction, from comic books to films.

Most of the historically proposed locations are in or near the Mediterranean Sea: islands such as Sardinia, Crete, Santorini (Thera), Sicily, Cyprus, and Malta; land-based cities or states.
