"'Hidden' is what you call it. We do what we do without regard for the thoughts of surface humans. What you know or do not know is not important to us. Only to you." - Atlantean
"Why have we seen you at all?" - Surface Human
"Recently, you have taken to the sky. We have been in the sky all along. You have begun to explode fission and fusion weapons you only think you understand. If you continue to explode such weapons, fight global wars, consume the planet with over consumption, then we have to step in. We will not let you destroy our planet. You fools are dangerous. Recently we had to prevent a one of your nuclear power generation devices from melting down and irradiating the large portion of the earth's surface you call "Europe". Some of us feel it is time once again to rid the earth of your overpopulation. We may decide to take your population level down and and allow you to repopulate. We need some surface humans for our survival. Too many surface humans are dangerous. 144,000 will do for a restart of the surface human population needed for our purposes. - Atlantean
"What are those creatures we see flying the saucer shaped craft?" -Surface Human
"Our creations. We engineered a living machine to carry out tasks for us above and below the surface of the earth and throughout the solar system. We engineered little grey creatures and other forms." - Atlantean
"You mean you live places other than earth? Other forms? I have so many questions" - Surface Human
"Yes. We have built craft that house over 100,000 thousand of us. You have seen these. We have studied you closely recently. The city you call Phoenix was passed over recently by one of our craft." - Atlantean
"Why did you appear above that city?" - Surface Human
"We assign some to study surface human activity. We rely on resources unique to this planet. We will not allow surface humans to harm us. We will eliminate extra surface humans before we let surface humans harm us. We warned you of this thousands of years ago. Some Atlanteans want to civilize you. You need to heed." - Atlantean
"What do you mean?" - Surface Human
"We revealed to a man you call "John" what could happen to surface humans." - Atlantean
"I do not understand." - Surface Human
"You call it "Revelation to John". - Atlantean
