Overview

"Plato's account contains precise references to the catastrophic global flooding that followed the end of the last ice age and peaked at the exact date he gives for the drowning of Atlantis. The occult traditions of Atlantis tell a radically different story, a story of technology run wild amid a desperate struggle for the soul of a dying civilization . . . "

The Ultimate Question

The legend of Atlantis—a lost civilization drowned beneath the waters of the Atlantic Ocean—has inspired controversy for more than two thousand years, and remains a hot topic even today.

Join occult historian John Michael Greer on a journey through time in search of one of the great mysteries of the past. Starting with the original versions of the Atlantis story in the dialogues of Plato, Greer tracks the Atlantis myth from the hidden lodges of occult secret societies, through the freewheeling debates of the alternative history scene, to the latest scientific discoveries about the prehistoric past.

In light of newspaper headlines about global warming and the future of industrial society, Greer poses the ultimate question—is the legend of Atlantis a legacy of the distant past, or a prophecy of our own future?

Atlantis includes practical lessons in scrying (remote viewing) as well as a call to action for "seedbearers" — individuals who will help preserve the cultural, scientific, and practical legacies of the past and present through the coming planetary changes.
