Weena - We setup the number of incarnations before coming into them, like setting up the basic parameters of a program. Some people only wanted one (although that particular lifetime might have lasted hundreds of years), and some people want more than 700. When we become enlightened, if we still have a few lifetimes "scheduled" that we hadn't experienced yet, then we can come back for the pure enjoyment of it and to give back to others - but there's no requirement to come back.
According to the Records, Lemuria and Atlantis were real civilizations that existed - so at least with me it's not controversial! Lemuria was in the Pacific basin area and Atlantis had it's spiritual center in what is now the Mediterranean Sea. Relics would be difficult to find, because it was so long ago and because much of what existed at the time would be underwater now. There have been some discoveries in the Atlantic and off the Mediterranean coasts in shallower water that date back to that time. The Great Pyramid is an example of something that was built with Atlantean technology - using sound to move the etheric body of an object to move the physical form.
