What if Adelaide was a lost city? An Atlantis, an Ur, a Pompeii?

What if Adelaide was a lost city? An Atlantis, an Ur, a Pompeii? A city and society so advanced and evolved that its people could communicate with a complexity, efficiency and poetry that carried meaning too great for the written word? What if these Adeladians developed a script with an added dimension; the third dimension. A three dimensional script comprised of three dimensional characters, rotated slightly, this way and that to accurately convey nuance of meaning, slight pun, jagged insight. A script that carried tone, volume, irony, double meaning aInd the history of the discussion, the history of the Idea and it’s various contexts all in one ‘sentence’.

What if the script was recovered, a millenia later with no code or translation? Is it a script? Is it a map? An ancient model for an unknown structure?
