The mystique of a drowned continent has stimulated wonder among seekers after ancient wisdom and bewildered researchers for over two millennia. Thanks to the Ethersphere, Online book store readers can now enjoy a vast array of volumes dealing with the riddle of Atlantis, both from a scholarly perspective and fiction.

There are more thoughts regarding what that fantastic island entailed and how the remains could be found than virtually any other of the many stories involving prehistoric superior cultures. The legend of a Utopian culture which was destroyed in a cataclysm has endured exactly for the reason that it rings so true as we confront what may turn out to be our own Deluge or Golden Age.

Socrates’ student, Plato, originally wrote about a sunken civilization, called Atlantis, about twenty-four hundred years ago. His version suggests Atlantis had been in the Atlantic Ocean and had perished about ten thousand years earlier.

American mystic Edgar Cayce described the island as a large land mass, rivaling the dimensions of Greenland. As it is told in the seerĂ­s complete vision, the Atlanteans were accustomed to supernatural psychic abilities and tools, and seeded colonies to the peculiarly similar solar-worshiping civilizations of the ancient Egyptians and the pre-Columbian Americans. The topic is frequently associated with reincarnation and auras, often figuring in Golden Dawn 2012 prophesies.

Hypotheses suggesting the site of the “Lost Continent” vary widely from the Far East to the Carribbean, although, of course the most promising possibilities which are small local islands with a long tradition, most notably Sardinia and Malta.

We may never know the facts, nevertheless, the evidence appears overwhelming: human kind has reached high levels of advancement in the distant past and the cycle of development and decimation, perhaps in a recurring pattern, long before that which we often regard as being earliest twinkle of time.
