Thousands of years prior to the great flood and the sinking of Lemuria and Atlantis, the Lemurians knew of the great events that were about to unfold. They used their high technology and knowledge to create places of refuge within the realms of the Inner Earth.

Telos is what the ascended Master Adama refers to as a cosmically international city of crystal and Light.
