    Recently, in reality, archeologists found evidence of writing 9,000 years ago. If there was an Atlantis 10-12,000 years ago, it would be highly likely that it would have links to writing that came after it. Similar to a "Mad Max" scenario, when Atlantis fell, the population would end up mostly illiterate, losing most of the written language with it. But certain symbols and letters would persist, leading to the simple bills of laden 9,000 years ago.

    Two picks from the warehouse arrive at the Institute: an ancient medallion mostly encased in granite and a map with an "X" near edge of the North American continental plate. The Institute members who stay to research the medallion need the help of a specialist and find themselves contending with a persnickety metallurgist. To get to the answer about the medallion, they break the rules, and what they discover is amazing, yet so scientically simple. Linda and Virgil have family issues.

    Using birthdates, Linda's warehouse pick turns out to be an ancient crown that gives a whole new understanding as to why leaders wore them. Cynthia's pick is the Ark of the Covenant - sort of - a replica built in the 1960s at the University of Minnesota, and it has a surprise. Mike and Irina explore physics in the crystal balls and find information unknown to us in the first "pages". Mandy works with a colleague who is on the International Space Station whose experiment goes out of control.
