Edgar Cayce 1877-1945
The position as the continent Atlantis occupied, is that as between the Gulf of Mexico on the one hand -- and the Mediterranean upon the other. Evidences of this lost civilization are to be found in the Pyrenees and Morocco on the one hand, British Honduras, Yucatan and America upon the other. There are some protruding portions within this that must have at one time or another been a portion of this great continent. The British West Indies or the Bahamas, and a portion of same that may be seen in the present -- if the geological survey would be made in some of these -- especially, or notably, in Bimini and in the Gulf Stream through this vicinity, these may be even yet determined.
What, then, are the character of the peoples? To give any proper conception, may we follow the line of a group, or an individual line, through this continent's existence -- and gain from same something of their character, their physiognomy, and their spiritual and physical development.
In the period, then -- some hundred, some ninety-eight thousand years before the entry of Ram into India -- there lived in this land of Atlantis one Amilius, who had first noted that of the separations of the beings as inhabited that portion of the earth's sphere or plane of those peoples into male and female as separate entities, or individuals. As to their forms in the physical sense, these were much rather of the nature of thought forms, or able to push out of themselves in that direction in which its development took shape in thought -- much in the way and manner as the amoeba would in the waters of a stagnant bay, or lake in the present. As these took form, by the gratifying of their own desire for that as built or added to the material conditions, they became hardened or set -- much in the form of the existent human body of the day, with that of color as partook of its surroundings much in the manner as the chameleon in the present. Hence coming into that form as the red, or the mixture peoples -- or colors; known then later by the associations as red race. These, then, able to use in their gradual development all the forces as were manifest in their individual surroundings, passing through those periods of developments as has been followed more closely in that of the yellow, the black, or the white races, in other portions of the world; yet with their immediate surroundings, with the facilities for the developments, these became much speedier in this particular portion of the globe than in others--and while the destruction of this continent and the peoples are far beyond any of that as has been kept as an absolute record, that record in the rocks still remains--as has that influence of those peoples in that life of those peoples to whom those did escape during the periods of destruction make or influence the lives of those peoples to whom they came. As they may in the present, either through the direct influence of being regenerated, or reincarnated into the earth, or through that of the mental application on through the influences as may be had upon thought of individuals or groups by speaking from that environ.
In the manner of living, in the manner of the moral, of the social, of the religious life of these peoples; there, classes existed much in the same order as existed among others; yet the like of the warlike influence did not exist in the peoples -- as a people -- as it did in the other portions of the universe. (364-3)
As to the supplying of that as necessary to sustain physical life as known today, in apparel, or supplying of the bodily needs, these were supplied through the natural elements; and the developments came rather in the forms -- as would be termed in the present day -- of preparing for those things that would pertain to what would be termed the aerial age, or the electrical age, and supplying then the modes and manners of transposition of those materials about same that did not pertain to themselves bodily; for of themselves this was transposed, rather by that ability lying within each to be transposed in thought as in body.
In these things, then, did Amilius see the beginning of, and the abilities of, those of his own age, era, or period, not only able to build that as able to transpose or build up the elements about them but to transpose them bodily from one portion of the universe to the other, through the uses of not only those recently rediscovered gases, and those of the electrical and aeriatic formation in the breaking up of the atomic forces to produce impelling force to those means and modes of transposition, or of travel, or of lifting large weights, or of changing the faces or forces of nature itself, but with these transpositions, with these changes that came in as personalities, we find these as the Sons of the Creative Forces as manifest in their experience looking upon those changed forms, or the daughters of men, and there crept in those pollutions, of polluting themselves with those mixtures that brought contempt, hatred, bloodshed, and those that build for desires of self without respect of others' freedom others' wishes, and there began then, in the latter portion of this period of development, that that brought about those of dissenting and divisions among the peoples in the lands. With the attempts of those still in power, through those lineages of the pure, that had kept themselves intact as of the abilities of forces as were manifest in their activities, these built rather those things that attempted to draw back those peoples; through first the various changes or seasons that came about, and in the latter portion of the experience of Amilius was the first establishing of the altars upon which the sacrifices of the fields and the forest, and those that were of that that satisfied the desires of the physical body were built.
Then, with the coming in or the raising up of Esai, with the change that had come about, began that period when there were the invasions of this continent by those of the animal kingdoms, that brought about that meeting of the nations of the globe to prepare a way and manner of disposing of, else they be disposed of themselves. With thiscoming in, there came then the first of the destructive forces as could be meted out in its force or power. Hence that as is termed, or its first beginning of, explosives that might be carried about, came with this reign, or this period, when man -- or men, then -- began to cope with those of the beast form that overran the earth in many places. Then, with these destructive forces, we find the first turning of the altar fires into that of sacrifice of those that were taken in the various ways, and human sacrifice began. With this also came the first egress of peoples to that of the Pyrenees first, of which later we find that peoples who enter into the black or the mixed peoples, in what later became the Egyptian dynasty. We also find that entering into the Og, or those peoples that later became the beginning of the Inca, or Ohum, that built the walls across the mountains in this period, through those same usages of that as had been taken on by those peoples; and with the same, those that made for that in the other land, became first those of the mound dwellers, or peoples in the land. With the continent disregard of those that were keeping the pure race and the pure peoples, of those that were to bring all these laws as applicable to the Sons of God, man brought in the destructive forces as used for the peoples that were to be the rule, that combined with those natural resources of the gases, of the electrical forces, made in nature and natural form the first of the eruptions that awoke from the depth of the slow-cooling earth, and that portion now near what would be termed the Sargasso Sea first went into the depths. With this there again came that egress of peoples that aided, or attempted to assume control, yet carrying with them all those forms of Amilius that he gained through that as for signs, for seasons, for days, for years. Hence we find in those various portions of the world even in the present day, some of that as was presented by those peoples in that great development in this, the Eden of the world.
In the latter portion of same we find as cities were built more and more rare became those abilities to call upon rather the forces in nature to supply the needs for those of bodily adornment, or those of the needs to supply the replenishing of the wasting away of the physical being; or hunger arose, and with the determinations to set again in motion, we find there -- then Ani, in those latter periods, then thousand seven hundred years before the Prince of Peace came -- again was the bringing into forces that to tempt, as it were, nature -- in its storehouse -- of replenishing the things -- that of the wasting away in the mountains, then into the valleys, then into the sea itself, and the fast disintegration of the lands, as well as of the peoples -- save those that had escaped into those distant lands.
How, then, may this be applicable to our present day understanding? As we see the effects as built in that about the sacred fires, as through those of Hermes, those of Arart, those of the Aztec, those of Ohum, each in their respective sphere carrying some portion of these blessings--when they are kept in accord and pure with those through which the channels of blessings, of the Creative Forces, may manifest.
Q. Please give a description of the earth's surface as it existed at the time of Atlantis' highest civilization, using the names of continents, oceans and sections of same as we know them today?
A. As to the highest point of civilization, this would first have to be determined according to the standard as to which it would be judged -- as to whether the highest point was when Amilius ruled with those understandings, as the one that understood the variations, or whether they became man made, would depend upon whether we are viewing from a spiritual standpoint or upon that as a purely material or commercial standpoint; for the variations, as we find, extend over a period of some two hundred thousand years--that is, as light years -- as known in the present -- and that there were many changes in the surface of what is now called the earth. In the first, or greater portion, we find that now known as the southern portions of South America and the Arctic or North Arctic regions, while those in what is now as Siberia -- or that as of Hudson Bay -- was rather in that region of the tropics, or that position now occupied by near what would be as the same line would run, of the southern Pacific, or central Pacific regions -- and about the same way. Then we find, with this change that came first in that portion when the first of those peoples used that as prepared for the changes in the earth, we stood near the position as the earth occupies in the present -- as to Capricorn, or the equator, or the poles. Then, with that portion, then the South Pacific, or Lemuria, began its disappearance -- even, before Atlantis, for the changes were brought about in the latter portion of that period, or what would be termed ten thousand seven hundred light years, or earth years, or present setting of those, as set by Amilius -- or Adam.(364-4)
Q. In relation to the history of Atlantis as present, at what period did the flood as recorded in the Bible in which Noah took part, occur?
A. In the second of the eruptions, or-- as is seen -- two thousand -- two -- two thousand and six -- before the Prince of Peace, as time is counted now, or light years -- day and night years. Not light years as the akashic records, or as the esoteric records, or as counted by astrology or astronomy, in the speed or the reflection of a ray of light. (364-6)
Q. How large was Atlantis during the time of Amilius?
A. Comparison, that of Europe including Asia in Europe -- not Asia, but Asia in Europe -- see? This composed, as seen, in or after the first of the destructions, that which would be termed now -- with the present position -- the southernmost portion of same -- islands as created by those of the first (as man would call) volcanic or eruptive forces brought into play in the destruction of same.
Q. Was Atlantis one large continent, or a group of large islands?
A. Would it not be well to read just that given? Why confuse in the questionings? As has been given, what would be considered one large continent, until the first eruptions brought those changes -- from what would now, with the present position of the earth in its rotation, or movements about its sun, through space, about Arcturus, about the Pleiades, that of a whole or one continent. Then with the breaking up, producing more of the nature of large islands, with the intervening canals or ravines, gulfs, bays or streams, as came from the various elemental forces that were set in motion by this charging --a s it were -- of the forces that were collected as the basis for those elements that would produce destructive forces, as might be placed in various quarters or gathering places of those beasts, or the periods when the larger animals roved the earth--with that period of man's indwelling. Let it be remembered, or not confused, that the earth was peopled by animals before peopled by man!
Q. What were the principal islands called at the time of the final destruction?
A. Poseidia and Aryan, and Og. (364-6)
Q. Describe one of the ships of the air that was used during the highest period of mechanical development in Atlantis.
A. Much of the nature, in the earlier portion, as would be were the hide of many of the pachyderm, or elephants, made into the containers for the gases that were used as both lifting and for the impelling of the crafts about the various portions of the continent, and even abroad. These, as may be seen, took on those abilities not only to pass through that called air, or that heavier, but through that of water -- when they received the impetus from the necessities of the peoples in that particular period, for the safety of self. The shape and form, then, in the earlier portion, depended upon which or what skins were used for the containers. The metals that were used as the braces, these were the combinations then of what is now a lost art -- the tempered brass, the temperament of that as becomes between aluminum (as now called) and that of uranium, with those fluxes that are from those of the combined elements of the iron, that is carbonized with those of other fluxes -- see? These made for lightness of structure, non-conductor or conductors of the electrical forces--that were used as the lifting--see? For that as in the nature's forces may be turned into even the forces of that that makes life, as given, from the sun's rays to those elements that make for, or find corresponding reaction in their application of same, or reflection of same, to the rays itself -- or a different or changed form of storage of force, as called electrical. (364-6)
Q. Describe some of the mental abilities that were developed by the Atlanteans at the time of their greatest spiritual development.
A. Impossible to describe achievements physical in their spiritual development. The use of material conditions and spiritual attributes in a material world would, and do, become that as are the miracles of the Son in the material world; for even as with Him in -- and as He walked, whether in Galilee, in Egypt, in India, in France, in England, or America -- there were those periods when the activities of the physical were as was what would be termed the everyday life of the Sons of God in the Atlantean or Eden experience; for as those brought the various changes from the highest of the spiritual development to the highest of the mental, then of the material or physical developments, then the fall -- see? (364-7)
Q. Was Atlantis one of the five points at which man appeared in the beginning, being the home of the red race?
A. One of the five points. As has been given, in what is known as Gobi, India, in Carpathia, or in that known as the Andes, and that known as in the western plain of what is now called America -- the five places. In their presentation, as we find, these -- in the five places, as man (Let's get the difference in that as first appeared (as thought forms) in what is known as Atlantis, and that as man appearing from those projections in the five places -- and, as has been given, from their environ took on that as became necessary for the meeting of those varying conditions under which their individualities and personalities began to put on form) -- one in the white, another in the brown, another in the black, another in the red. These, as we find, taking that form -- Would snow be the place for the black? or the sun the place for the white? or the desert and the hills for the white or the black? as were partakers of those things that brought about those variations in that which enters, or becomes as the outer presentation, or the skin, or the pigment that is presented in same.
Q. The center or beginning of these projections was in Atlantis?
A. Was in Atlantis. Hence we have, as from the second incarnation there -- or the story as is given in Judaism doesn't vary a great deal from that of the Chaldean; neither does it vary at all from that that will be discovered in Yucatan; nor does it vary a great deal from that as from the older ones of the Indian (East Indian, of course -- as it is from the present). (364-9)
Individuals in the beginning were more of thought forms than individual entities with personalities as seen in the present, and their projections into the realm of fields of thought that pertain to a developing or evolving world of matter... became manifest. Hence we find occult or psychic science, as would be called at the present, was rather the natural state of man in the beginning. Very much as when a baby, or babe, is born into the world and its appetite is first satisfied, and it lies sleeping. Of what is its dreams? That it expects to be, or that it had been? Of what are thoughts? That which is to be, or that which has been or that which is? Now remember we are speaking -- these were thought forms...
The mind constantly trained makes for itself mental pictures, or makes for that as is reasoned with from its own present dimensional viewpoints -- but the babe, from whence its reasoning? From whence its dream? From that that has been taken in, or that that has been its experience from whence it came? Oft has it been said, and rightly, with a babe's smile 'Dreaming of angels' and close in touch with them -- but what has produced that dream? The contact with that upon which it fed! Don't forget our premise now from which we are reasoning! And we will find that we will have the premise from which those individuals, or the entities, reasoned within the beginning in this land. (We are speaking of Atlanteans, when they became as thought forces). From whence did they reason? From the Creative Force from which they had received their impetus, but acted upon by the thought forms as were in material forms about them, and given that power (will) to be one with that from what it sprang or was given its impetus, or force, yet with the ability to use that in the way that seemed, or seemeth, good or well, or pleasing, unto itself...
With those so endowed with that as may be called an insight into psychic sources there may be visioned about a body its astral (if chosen to be termed), rather its thought body, as is projected... in much the way and manner as individuals in the Atlantean period of psychic and occult development brought about in their experience. Through such projections there came about that first necessity of the division of the body, to conform to those necessities of that as seen in its own mental vision as built (Mental now -- don't confuse these terms, or else you will become very confused in what is being given!)
The greater development of that called occult, or psychic forces, during the Atlantean period -- and the use of same, and the abuse of same was during its first thousand years...(and) those that partook of carnal to the gratification of that that brought about its continual hardening and less ability to harken back through that from which it came, and partaking more and more of that upon which it became an eater of...
To what uses, then, did these people in this particular period give their efforts, and in what directions were they active? As many almost as there were individuals! for, as we find from the records as are made, to some there was given the power to become the sons of God; other were workers in brass, in iron, in silver, in gold; others were made in music, and the instruments of music. These, then, we find in the world today (today, now -- we are reasoning from today). Those that are especially gifted in art -- in various forms; and a real artist (as the world looks at it) isn't very much fit for anything else! yet it is -- What? An expression of its concept of that from which it, that entity, sprang -- through the various stages of its evolution (if you choose to call it such) in a material world, or that which it fed its soul or its mental being for its development through its varied experiences in a material world. These, then, are but manifestation (occult forces) in individuals who are called geniuses, or gifted in certain directions.
These, then, are the manners in which the entities, those beings, those souls, in the beginning partook of, or developed. Some brought about monstrosities, as of its (that entity's) association by its projection with its association with beasts of various characters. Hence those of the Styx, satyr, and the like; those of the sea, or mermaid; those of the unicorn...those that sought forms in minerals -- and being able to be that the mineral was. (364-10)
In the beginning (occult or psychic science) were the natural expressions of an entity. As there developed more of the individual association with material conditions, and they partook of same in such a manner as to become wholly or in part a portion of same, farther -- or more hidden, more unseen -- has become occult or psychic manifestations. First there were the occasional harking back. Later by dream. Again we find individuals raised in certain sections for specific purposes. As the cycle has gone about, time and again has there arisen in the earth those that manifested these forces in a more magnificent, more beneficent, way and manner. And, as has been given, again the time draws near when there shall be seen and known among men, in many places, the manifestations of such forces in the material world; for "As ye have seen him go, so will He return again" (Acts 1:11)... With the use of those sources of information, the abilities to become a portion of those elements that were the creative forces of the compounds or elements within the universal forces, at that period brought about those forces that made for destruction of the land itself, in the attempt to draw that as was in man then back to knowledge; and these brought about those destructive forces (that are known today) in gases, with that called the death ray, that brought from the bowels of the earth itself -- when turned into the sources of supply -- those destructions to portions of the land. Man has ever (even as then) when in distress, either mental, spiritual, or physical, sought to know his association, his connection, with the divine forces that brought the worlds into being...
This is what psychic force, and so called occult science, did mean, has meant, does mean in the world today.
Q. Describe in more detail the causes and effects of the destruction of the part of Atlantis now the Sargasso Sea.
A. As there were those individuals that attempted to bring again to the mind of man more of those forces that are manifest by the closer association of the mental and spiritual, or the soul forces that were more and more as individual and personal forms in the world, the use of these elements -- as for the building up, or the passage of individuals through space -- brought the use of the gases then (in the existent forces), and the individuals being able to become the elements, and the elementals themselves, added to that used in the form of what is at present known as the raising of the powers from the sun itself, to the ray that makes for disintegration of the atom, in the gaseous forces formed, and brought about the destruction in that portion of the land now presented, or represented, or called, Sargasso Sea.
Q. What was the date of this first destruction, estimating in our present day system of counting time in years BC?
A. Seven thousand five hundred years before the final destruction, which came as has been given.
Q. Please give a few details regarding the physiognomy, habits, customs, and costumes of the people of Atlantis during the period just before this first destruction.
A.First there were those as projections from that about the animal kingdom; for the thought bodies gradually took form, and the various combinations (as may be called) of the various forces that called or classified themselves as gods, or rulers over -- whether herds, or fowls, or fishes, etc. -- in part that kingdom and part of that as gradually evolved in a physiognomy much in the form of the present day man (were one chosen of those that were, or are, the nearest representative of the race of peoples that existed in this first period as the first destructions came about). These took on many sizes as to stature, from that as may be called the midget to the giants -- for there were giants in the earth in those days, men as tall as (what would be termed today) ten to twelve feet in stature, and in proportion -- well-proportioned throughout.
The ones that became the most useful were those as would be classified (or called in the present) as the ideal stature, that was of both male and female (as those separations had been begun); and the most ideal (as would be called) was Adam, who was in that period when he (Adam) appeared as five in one -- See?
In this the physiognomy was that of a full head, with an extra eye -- as it were -- In those portions that became what is known as the eye. In the beginning these appeared in whatever portion was desired by the body for its use!
As for the dress, those in the beginnings were (and the Lord made them coats) of the skins of the animals. These covered the parts of their person that had become, then, as those portions of their physiognomy that brought much of the desires that made for destructive forces in their own experience; and these then were of those about them that were given as meat, or used as same -- that partook of the herbs. These were those same herbs that the seed were to have been for good for the man in self, and only those that partook of same may be called even clean -- in the present day. (364-11)
Q. Describe briefly one of the large cities of Atlantis at the height of its commercial and material prosperity, giving name and location.
A. This we find in that as called Poseidia, or the city that was built upon the hill that overlooked the waters of Parfa (?), and in the vicinity also of the egress and entrance to the waters from which, through which, many of the peoples passed in their association with, or connection with, those of the outside walls or countries. This we find not an altogether walled city, but a portion of same built so that the waters of these rivers became as pools about which both sacrifice and sport, and those necessities for the cleansing of the body, home and all, were obtained, and these -- as we find -- were brought by large ducts or canals into these portions for the preservations, and yet kept constantly in motion so that it purified itself in the course; for, as we find, as is seen, water in motion over stone or those various forces in the natural forces purifies itself in twenty feet of space.
In the type of the buildings, these were much in that of tiers -- one upon another; save principally in the temples -- that were about the sacred fires where these were offered, the sacrifices that were gradually built by the people in their attempt to appease those forces in nature, and from which we find there came all those forms in the various portions of the earth in which these were carried in their necessary channels, to make for the variations in its surroundings and the conditions thereunto. In this temple, we find these of large or semi-circular columns of onyx, topaz, and inlaid with beryl, amethyst, and stones that made the variations in catching the rays of the sun. Hence a portion of same became as the sun worshippers in other portions, from which there were an egress of the peoples.
In this the sacred fires burned, and there were the rising of the intermittent fires that came and went, that were later worshipped by some that brought on much of the destruction, because the waited long at the period before the destructions came. These were those places where there became eventually the necessity of offering human sacrifices, which when put into fires became the ashes that were cast upon the waters for the drinking of same by those that were made prisoners from portions of other lands.
In the setting up of same, these in the temple ruled -- rather than those who held official positions in carrying out the orders of those in these positions.
These, as to the manner of the buildings, were of the outer court -- or where groups or masses might collect. The inner, those that were of a select group, or those of the second chambers. Those of the inner court, or shrine about the altar, were only for the elect, or the chosen few. (364-12)
