This book was written by the son of a man who was, and is now, known as the 'sleeping prophet'. Without getting into a discourse on Cayce himself, it can be said that this short work is a compilation of selected Cayce 'trance readings', with interpretation by Edgar Evans Cayce, that pertain to the lost (and found?) civilization(s) of Atlantis.
The crux here is that Cayce seemingly predicted, by virtue of discussion of the technologies of the Atlantean civilization, breakthroughs such as atomic power, lasers, genetic engineering & cloning, and others, all long before such things were part of the modern human tapestry. Cayce died in 1945 and the readings took place beginning in the 1920s.
Cayce's trance references to the rediscovery of Atlantis off the coast of Bimini in the late 1960s (decades after Cayce's death), were 'confirmed' by the chance discovery of the Bimini Wall right on schedule. Cayce's prediction of the discovery of the Atlantis 'Hall of Records' under the paw of the Sphinx was perhaps likewise confirmed when an hitherto unknown chamber was found precisely there just recently. It remains unopened as of this writing.
Cayce claimed that his trances, mostly conducted as healing readings for the ill as measures of last resort, and to which references to Atlantis were apparently incidental, were in fact communications with spiritual 'entities' across the ether of time and space. Spiritual reincarnation of the entities is implied, as Cayce was, it seems, himself a citizen of Atlantis.
It is important to note that Cayce took no pay for his work, lived a modest life, and, to this author's knowledge, has never been accused of fraud or deceit of any kind. It is said that his medical readings resulted in cures for thousands in cases that otherwise baffled then-modern medicine
Cayce's 'entities' make reference to a series of battles for the societal direction of Atlantis, with two primary factions facing off: the Sons of the Law of One, or the ostensible 'good', spritually-motivated people, and the Sons of Belial, the 'evil', manipulative, and materialistically motivated people, and those who likewise brought upon the utlimate Atlantean demise through the misuse of an enormously powerful crystal-based energy system.
Cayce's communications reveal that, while Atlantis was put asunder through a technological catastrophe, remnants of the civilization survived and migrated to places including Incan Peru, Mayan Yucatan, and pre-dynastic Egypt, perhaps explaining the incredible edifices in these places which, to many, modern science still lacks the ability to adequately explain.
Reading these passages is quite evocative. One 'feels' that they are correct. The references to the finding of the Hall of Records, and the attendant possibility that mankind might therein discover the true history of the human race, is quite compelling.
Also of note are references to Egyptian 'clinics' charged with undoing genetic monstrosities attributable to the activities of the Sons of Belial, and wherein beings trapped in horrific cross-species mutations were somehow freed. A reference to the Antartic ice cap being only 6000 years old is also certainly noteworthy, particularly in light of the fact that this would not be a typical statement of a man with nothing to gain in lying, and, of course, in the fact that it is thought that this ice has been present for hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of years.
Did dinosaurs roam the earth during the height of Atlantis (50,000-10,000BC)? Cayce thought so, as the Atlanteans had used genetic engineering to revive long-extinct species.
In trance, Cayce makes reference to great earth changes, past and present. Foremost is a reference to a cataclysmic shift in earth polarity during Atlantis' time, and another coming soon!
A weakness of the book are the well-intended analyses by Edgar Evans Cayce, which, while in the main forthright and interesting, perhaps would best be left to the reader; the book was written in 1968 and many of the references in the albeit well-researched commentary by EEC are therefore out of date.
Whether the wisdom here is true or not, remember that Cayce has never been accused of being a liar or charlatan. His trance persona believed the entities from which the knowledge was delivered. The utter lack of subjectivity within the readings themselves tends to suggest that Cayce's only motivation is sharing insight. The further fact that it was only after Edgar Cayce's death that these particular readings were widely publicized should be considered indicative of a man without hidden the agendas of sensationalism, self-promotion, or financial profit.
This book is highly recommended for anyone interested in archaelogy, lost civilizations, or anyone with an open mind that is unsatisfied with the completeness of modern science's explanations for a wide range of mysteries. Enjoy!
