Présentation de l'éditeur

"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.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Mysteries Magazine review 28 octobre 2007
Par Kim Guarnaccia - Publié sur
The story is familiar: at the height of its glory, a mighty civilization sinks beneath the waves and vanishes, leaving only tantalizing legends in its wake. But what do we really know about Atlantis? In Atlantis: Ancient Legend, Hidden Prophecy, John Michael Greer provides a fair, fascinating and clearly referenced overview of Atlantis as envisioned by thinkers from ancient Greece to the present day. Covering a wide range of material from the sensible to the silly, Greer maps out this popular legend and provides tantalizing hints of the reality which may lie behind these stories.

Greer notes that Plato took pains to state that his account of Atlantis (the earliest we have) was literal truth, not allegory or metaphor. He also points out that Plato's account describes a civilization which was no more advanced than its neighbors. Plato's Atlanteans drove war chariots rather than flying saucers and used spears and arrows rather than mind control rays and levitation devices.

So where did the Atlantean crystal healers and channeled guides come from? From no less than that (in)famous Russian emigré and polymath Helena Petrova Blavatsky. Her Atlanteans (not to mention the denizens of Lemuria, Mu and other ancient civilizations allegedly destroyed by catastrophe) bore little resemblance to Plato's Mediterranean warriors. From there, a shy photographer named Edgar Cayce gave detailed dream-descriptions of the sunken city and the people who had lived there in past lives--as well as an erroneous prediction that Atlantis would rise again in 1968/69.

While Greer refrains from prophesying about when Atlantis will rise, he does offer us some thought-provoking (if a bit gloomy) reflections about our present culture. Modern geologists have shown a long history of radical climate change. And as oil supplies run dry and our consumerist lifestyles become increasingly untenable, we may find that our tales of forgotten civilizations contain hidden truths--and our myths of eternal progress and the triumph of science may hide horrible falsehoods.

If you have any interest in Atlantis or advanced prehistoric civilizations, Greer has compiled information from Plato to the present day, providing an encyclopedic listing of sources for your own studies of the lands beneath the wave. Atlantis: Ancient Legacy, Hidden Prophecy is sure to become the definitive text on the subject, and is highly recommended.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 AT LAST... ATLANTIS IS FOUND!!!! 14 février 2008
Par Richard Masloski - Publié sur
Well, maybe the fabled lost continent has not been definitively found or bobbed back to the surface from the ocean's depths.....but the BEST book of the topic has, alas, surfaced! After book upon book riddled with wild speculation and sometimes thoroughly absurd notions regarding the real riddle of Atlantis, Mr. Greer has given us a no-nonsense, crystal-clear, effectively written history of this Mystery from its first mention by Plato on through the centuries and its myriad incarnations unto the present day...and to the startling conclusion that we, ourselves, NOW...may be inhabitants of Atlantis. We....may be the Atlanteans! The circle may be about to close as past becomes present. Anyway - forget all of the other books and buy this one which surpasses all previous efforts in elucidating this more-important-than-we-may-know Enigma. Thank you, Mr. Greer for making all Atlantean matters Clear!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Legominism in practice 1 février 2009
Par W. Paul Blakey - Publié sur
The Occult Atlantis is a curious work. Is it indeed a legominism?

To quote from the book itself: "The term ... legominism means a structure of ideas by which ancient wisdom is passed on in a form apparently intended for some entirely different purpose."

The reason I ask the question is that Greer does a very good job investigating the roots of the Atlantis mythology, but does not lead the reader to a satisfactory conclusion, as to its reality or otherwise. He leaves us treading water, as it were, in the aftermath of a flood of ideas.

A pertinent factoid about Tolkien that is not in the book, is that the good professor had dreams throughout his life about a huge wave that crashed over the land, destroying everything. The dreams stopped when he began to write the Lord of the Rings, which is of course a vast mythology based on the concept of an ancient civilization that had somehow been destroyed.

Perhaps Greer's intention was to lead the reader to the appendix where he outlines some time traveling meditation techniques of the Western Mystery Tradition to encourage readers who have been called by the story of Atlantis, to explore it for themselves.

In any case, this is a book worth reading. It's like looking at a very famous painting (say the Mona Lisa) through the eyes of someone who has their head tilted to one side and is standing at an unusual angle to the picture. Is she really smiling, and if so, why?
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Well written, like everything by Greer 5 avril 2014

I bought this book solely for the author's name, having no particular interest in the Atlantis myth. Like everything Greer writes, it's a wide-ranging, thoughtful, erudite stroll through a selected subject. This book appealingly meanders through a number of related topics, from Plato's writings on Atlantis to recorded losses of populated lands under rising seas to the history of the New Age movement. Greer explains clearly why the modern Atlantis myth can't be taken as factual, and probably wasn't originally intended to be. He has such a delightful authorial voice that if you have even the tiniest interest in the subject he is always worth reading.

Excellent, thought-provoking book. Enjoyed it thoroughly. There are so many theories out there regarding Atlantis; this one is more rationally and scientifically-based than most.
