The Atlantean Debacle (Sharp, BOLIFE) was the violent descent into hatred, vengeance, violence, and despair that occurred, during the second Ascension attempt. The Atlantean Debacle (AD) occurred because activation outpaced awakening. Because activation outpaced awakening, the physical unit became empowered while still in Darkness. The activation of the physical unit ahead of the actual descent of higher Consciousness, coupled with the already dark and violent conditions, led to a descending spiral of hate, greed, vengeance, and violence. The spiral increased negative energies and pushed humanity towards bitter and violent self-destruction.
