What name would you call a person who did not fit into the history of major religions, who are neither Athiest nor Christian, neither Pagan nor Islamic, neither Jew nor Buddhist, but who has an understanding of the things of Man, and that of Heaven.
Who believes in a future that adds value to the laws of life.
We are called "Gádian's"
This true story, it starts a long time ago, long before 10,000 BC with the ten kings of Atlantis, Plato tells us in Critias that the island of Atlantis was divided into ten portions, ruled over by ten sons of the founder, one "Poseidon." One of the sons was "Gadeirus". Atlantis was going through some major changes in how the people would be represented, Atlantis was moving towards a democracy controlled by a senate or council. This was the natural evolution of many societies today, even from Roman times we see the civil wars between the emperor and the republic (senate). Australia went through this change in 1986 with the Australia Act, from a British colony to an independent Commonwealth country. America went through its war of independence. The other kings of Atlantis knew this was going to happen and prepared for war against the rebels.
Many of the kings tried through peaceful means to make these changes, and this is where the story begins.
Atlantis is a legend that was preserved by the Egyptians and Greeks from 9570.BC, according to the Atlantian Script of Solon, a Greek Statesman, who received this knowledge of Atlantis, upon his visit to Sais, Egypt and the Libyan Pharaoh, Amasis II, ca 570.BC, and Wedjahor-Resne, the Egyptian Priest, Physician and Naval Admiral. Unknown to the Greeks, it was forgotten and retained from Egypt as Plato's, Timaeus tells us, written in 360.BC. Chalcidius, a Latin Scribe, would preserve Plato's work from his original notebook.
The Greeks were fascinated by the notion of a mythical and fabulously wealthy kingdom in the far west beyond the Pillars of Hercules. It was a rich emporium of valuable and precious metals and the luxurious lives led by its inhabitants linked it in their minds to the legends of Atlantis and Hesperides, the Isles of the Blessed, which were located in the same direction and were maybe even in the same place. They called it Tartessos.
The story begins with "Gadeirus being asked to solve a long running issue between the "Sons of Light" and the "Sons of Belial", He was known for his wisdom, insight and judgement, having ruled his land peaceful for more than 50 years.
The "Sons of Light" (love and compassion) were the people who respected the land, living in harmony with it; they were very advanced technologically, having vast networks of schools and societies. The "Sons of Belial" (hard of heart) were the people who saw the land as servants to them, they reaped it clean by stripping it of trees and burning it for replanting of profitable crops, and when the soil would yield any more they abandoned it leaving it a waste land and moved on to new areas, often trying very hard to encroach on the land of the Sons of Light, placing ever increasing demands on them to give it up, they were very competitive in nature often killing each other for power and financial gain. This story has waged its fight for the control of society for as long as man will believe it is necessary, but it will end when man begins to know thyself.
The issue that Gadeirus was asked to solve was one of, "Who had the right to set the laws governing social conduct concerning the acceptable methods of war", "like their ancestors, they were to deliberate in common about war and other matters, this would if war was decided give the supremacy to the descendants of Atlas. And no king was to have the power of life and death over any of his kinsmen unless he had the assent of the majority of the ten. "This was a trick to see who could own the wealth of the land and who was responsible to produce it, for He knew in war there were those captured and taken as slaves, their wealth, family and lands surrendered, they were forced to work that land for the victorious social class. If He agreed to war, then he could condemn the people to slavery, and if he disagreed with war He would cause the revolt of the people.
Gadeirus called all the ten kings together, and asked them what was happening within their kingdom, after the kings he asked the people in a court of public enquiry, all people what ever class or status.
The enquiry found the need for an independent law, the fact or irony of setting up of the enquiry by Gadeirus was to be the foundation for the new form of government.
He set up a an independent organisation to train people in keeping the peace in the land (today you could call them law enforcement officers, not police, but a role similar to a commonwealth officer or federal sheriff), they are the people who follow the primal law, or governing principles of society, the same law that applies equally right down to the pauper that can remove a president or prime minister or provide the opportunity for anyone to reach their highest goal. They lived outside of the confines of the society as they were apolitical, and over time they developed their own societies, language and culture.
He chose the best from both groups to form this organisation; it had the sanction of the other kings for they knew it would not be long before this problem was encountered by them. Those who were chosen were not to belong to any laws or groups outside that of the constitutional and democratically socially accepted code of conduct, more of this will be explained later.
These people were chosen for their skills, strengths, knowledge and intuition. They were able to think, feel, act and know why they were doing things.
Gadeirus with the other Kings, asked these people to formulate a code of law that would benefit the lives of their people. This law became known as the Gádians Law, meaning both a person and their way of life. Gadeirus knew this law from his youth, being handed down to him as well as all others, from the Great School (Temple of Light...)
You can still see examples of these laws from Gadeirus’s time in the public service of democratic nations; this is often portrayed in a satirical way by TV series like Yes Minister, a British comedy about their public service.
The first question I get asked when I speak about the book is "How do you know it is true?” The answer to this is simple "You are living them, now".
For any society, the benefits of being part of a cohesive group should outweigh the benefits of individualism. For example, lack of group cohesion could make individuals more vulnerable to attack from outsiders. A cohesive society allows each person to develop to their full potential because they can see in others their attitudes.
The attachment and bonding, cooperation and mutual aid, sympathy and empathy, conflict resolution and peacemaking, community concern and caring about what others think about you, and awareness of and response to the social rules of the group, this is called the social conscience of a society.
The recognition of a developed social structure has several traits; these traits include high intelligence, high health, a capacity for symbolic communication, a sense of social norms, and realization of "self" and a concept of continuity.
This book is a brief introduction to the event and circumstances that made it possible for many generations over a period of ten thousand years or more, to live their dreams as they truly want them to be.
This is the story of the Gádians.
