1996: The Lost Continent of Atlantis

Plato gave the world the oldest remaining written account of Atlantis, in Critias, recorded circa 370 BC. By his account, Poseidon, god of the sea, sired five pairs of male twins with mortal women. Poseidon appointed the eldest of these sons, Atlas the Titan, ruler of his beautiful island domain. Atlas became the personification of the mountains or pillars that held up the sky. Plato described Atlantis as a vast island-continent west of the mediterranean, surrounded by the Atlantic ocean. The Greek word Atlantis means the island of Atlas, just as the word Atlantic means the ocean of Atlas. Atlantis was governed in peace, was rich in commerce, was advanced in knowledge, and held dominion over the surrounding islands and continents. By Plato’s legend, the people of Atlantis became complacent and their leaders arrogant; in punishment the Gods destroyed Atlantis, flooding it and submerging the island in one day […] Read More

The Fall of Atlantis

The disappearance of Atlantis into the dimensional limbo she called home for thousands of years shattered the True Atlantean Empire, but was not unknown to some True Atlanteans before the event happened. A few clans of True Atlanteans, the clans of Tarquises and Gilbatro had argued against the experiment saying the experiment would have massive repercussions on the entire Atlantean culture. They were correct. After Pandora’s Box was opened and the magic waned over the planet, the scientists of clans Tarquises and Gilbatro predicted a cataclysm happening to the continent of Atlantis which would scatter the clans and cause living conditions on the surface of Atlantis to become unbearable and impossible. In an attempt to prevent the greatest loss of life, the clans decided to explore the caverns underneath the continent to see if there was a way to create a livable area where the clans could go when the cataclysm they predicted occurred. While the clans […] Read More

The Legend of Atlantis

by Bob H. We are currently living in the “end of time” and many people are now talking about the new millennium or Golden Age which follows our “end of time” Everyone agrees that everything will be quite different during this Golden Age and that Christ consciousness will again prevail on this planet. But can we see that this will require and enormous change to occur within us as well? As the time comes for these planetary changes to manifest, everyone will be able to exercise their choice of either accepting or rejecting these new environmental conditions. some will be so entrenched in the old ways that they will have no choice but to deny the very existence of their new surroundings. There are many famous past examples of people confronted with a totally new situation, who were completely unable to accept that they had heard or seen what […] Read More

Atlantis – An Introduction

The following Introduction contains excerpts from the following full length articles (which are linked at the end of the article):- History of the Golden Ages – by Steve Omar Crystal Power and Energies in Atlantis – by Geoffrey Keyte The Way – by T. Donovan Evidence For Its’ Existence “This is probably the greatest discovery in World history”, was stated by Maxine Asher, the co-director of a scientific expedition that found Atlantis at the bottom of the ocean, reported United Press International and major newspapers in the United States during the summer of 1973. UPI continued that “Maxine Asher said that scuba divers found data to prove the existence of the super-civilization which legend says sank beneath the sea thousands of years ago. The divers had found evidence of roads and large columns, some with concentric spiral motifs, in the exact place described by the Greek philosopher Plato”. “The […] Read More

1996: Atlantis: New Hypothesis

by Viatcheslav Koudriavtsev ———————————————————————— FROM THE AUTHOR This is the third edition of my paper. The first one was sent as a brochure “Returning to the Enigma of Plato’s Atlantis” to Ancient History Departments of some Universities and to Geographical Societies of a number of countries in June 1995. The magazine version of it has come out in the May 1996 issue of “Vokrug Sveta” (“Around the World”, Magazine of Travels, Adventures and SF) – a kind of Russian “National Geographic”. The second one was published in some newsgroups and mailing lists in February – March 1996. In the present edition I am trying to provide answers to most of the questions I was asked after those publications. Besides, I have since found some materials illustrating some of my suggestions. I would like to apologise for some prolixity of the introduction and maybe the slightly simplified style of setting […] Read More

The Antediluvian World 4

The Fountains of the Great Deep.–As Atlantis perished in a volcanic convulsion, it must have possessed volcanoes. This is rendered the more probable when we remember that the ridge of land of which it was a part, stretching from north to south, from Iceland to St. Helena, contains even now great volcanoes–as in Iceland, the Azores, the Canaries, etc.–and that the very sea-bed along the line of its original axis is, to this day, as we have shown, the scene of great volcanic disturbances. If, then, the mountains of Atlantis contained volcanoes, of which the peaks of the Azores are the surviving representatives, it is not improbable that the convulsion which drowned it in the sea was accompanied by great discharges of water. We have seen that such discharges occurred in the island of Java, when four thousand people perished. “Immense columns of hot water and boiling mud were […] Read More

1892: Old Philosophers and Modern Critics

In one of the oldest philosophies and religious systems of prehistoric times, we read that at the end of a Mahâ-Pralaya (general dissolution) the great Soul, Param-Atmâ the Self-Existent, that which can be “apprehended only by the suprasensual,” becomes “manifest of itself.”1 The Hindûs give this “Existence” various names, one of which is Svayambhû, or Self-Existent. This Svayambhû emanates from itself the creative faculty, or Svâyambhuva – the “Son of the Self-Existent” – and the One becomes Two; this in its turn evolves a third principle with the potentiality of becoming Matter which the orthodox call Virâj, or the Universe.2 This incomprehensible Trinity became later anthropomorphized into the Trimûrti, known as Brahmâ, Vishnu, Shiva, the symbols of the creative, the preservative, and the destructive powers in Nature – and at the same time of the transforming or regenerating forces, or rather of the three aspects of the one Universal […] Read More

Stars And Numbers

Ancient civilization saw nothing absurd in the claims of astrology, no more than many an educated and thoroughly scientific man sees in it today. Judicial astrology, by which the fate and acts of men and nations might be foreknown, [hardly] appeared, nor does it even now appear, any more unphilosophical or unscientific than does natural astrology or astronomy-by which the events of so-called brute and inanimate nature (changes of weather, &c.), might be predicted. For it was not even prophetic insight that was claimed by the votaries of that abstruse and really grand science, but simply a great proficiency in that method of procedure which allows the astrologer to foresee certain events in the life of a man by the position of the planets at the time of his birth. Once the probability, or even the simple possibility, of an occult influence exercised by the stars upon the destiny […] Read More

The Denials and the Mistakes of the Nineteenth Century

At or near the beginning of the present century all the books called Hermetic were loudly proclaimed and set down as simply a collection of tales, of fraudulent pretences and most absurd claims, being, in the opinion of the average man of science, unworthy of serious attention. They “never existed before the Christian era,” it was said; “they were all written with the triple object of speculation, deceit and pious fraud”; they were all, the best of them, silly apocrypha. In this respect, the nineteenth century proved a most worthy progeny of the eighteenth. For in the age of Voltaire, as well as in this, everything that did not emanate direct from the Royal Academy was false, superstitious and foolish, and belief in the wisdom of the Ancients was laughed to scorn, perhaps more even than it is now. The very thought of accepting as authentic the works and […] Read More

The Cycle Moveth

Let the great world spin for ever down the ringing grooves of change. –TENNYSON The goal of yesterday will be the starting- point of to-morrow. –CARLYLE The great mystic of the eighteenth century, the ardent disciple of Jacob Boehme – Louis Claude de Saint Martin – used to say in the last years of his life: “I would have loved to meet more with those who guess at truths, for such alone are living men.” This remark implies that, outside the limited circle of mystics which has existed in every age, people endowed with correct psychic intuition were still fewer at the end of the last century than they are now. These were, indeed, years of complete soul-blindness and spiritual drought. It is during that century that the chaotic darkness and Babylonish confusion with regard to spiritual things, which have ever reigned in brains too crammed with mere scientific […] Read More

The Dual Aspect of Wisdom

No doubt but ye are the people and wisdom shall die with you. JOB xii. 2. But wisdom is justified of her children. MATTHEW xi. 19. It is the privilege – as also occasionally the curse – of editors to receive numerous letters of advice, and the conductors of Lucifer have not escaped the common lot. Reared in the aphorisms of the ages they are aware that “he who can take advice is superior to him who gives it,” and are therefore ready to accept with gratitude any sound and practical suggestions offered by friends; but the last letter received does not fulfill the condition. It is not even his own wisdom, but that of the age we live in, which is asserted by our adviser, who thus seriously risks his reputation for keen observationby such acts of devotion on the altar of modern pretensions. It is in defense […] Read More
