Présentation de l'éditeur

A theosophist and believer of the Occult, W. Scott-Elliot gives us a description of the history and structure of Atlantis and Lemuria, along with what he considers evidence of this. The Story of Atlantis is prefaced by famed occultist Alfred Percy Sinnett.

"There is no limit really to the resources of astral clairvoyance in investigations concerning the past history of the earth, whether we are concerned with the events that have befallen the human race in prehistoric epochs, or with the growth of the planet itself through geological periods which antedated the advent of man, or with more recent events, current narrations of which have been distorted by careless or perverse historians. The memory of Nature is infallibly accurate and inexhaustibly minute. A time will come as certainly as the precession of the equinoxes, when the literary method of historical research will be laid aside as out of date, in the case of all original work. People among us who are capable of exercising astral clairvoyance in full perfection--but have not yet been called away to higher functions in connexion with the promotion of human progress, of which ordinary humanity at present knows even less than an Indian ryot knows of cabinet councils--are still very few. Those who know what the few can do, and through what processes of training and self-discipline they have passed in pursuit of interior ideals, of which when attained astral clairvoyance is but an individual circumstance, are many, but still a small minority as compared with the modern cultivated world. But as time goes on, and within a measurable future, some of us have reason to feel sure that the numbers of those who are competent to exercise astral clairvoyance will increase sufficiently to extend the circle of those who are aware of their capacities, till it comes to embrace all the intelligence and culture of civilised mankind only a few generations hence." (from the Preface)

This collection of two important works provides an in-depth analysis of both Atlantis and Lemuria. The destruction of Atlantis was accomplished by a series of catastrophes varying in character from great cataclysms in which whole territories and populations perished, to comparatively unimportant landslips such as occur on our own coasts today.

It was the Toltec race who developed the highest civilization and organized the most powerful empire of any of the Atlantean peoples. It must be remembered that humanity was still for the most part possessed of psychic attributes, and by this time the most advanced had undergone the necessary training in the occult schools, and had attained various stages of initiations -- some even reaching to Adeptship. This was the golden age of the Toltec race. The government was just and beneficent; the arts and sciences were cultivated—indeed the workers in these fields, guided as they were by occult knowledge, achieved tremendous results; religious belief and ritual was still comparatively pure -- in fact the civilization of Atlantis had by this time reached its height.

Also included is The Lost Lemuria. Although the lost continent of Atlantis has so far received scant recognition from the world of science, the general consensus of opinion has for long pointed to the existence, at some prehistoric time, of a vast southern continent to which the name of Lemuria has been assigned.

Biographie de l'auteur

William Scott-Elliot (sometimes spelled Scott-Elliott) (d.1930) was a theosophist who elaborated Helena Blavatsky's concept of root races in several publications, most notably The Story of Atlantis (1896) and The Lost Lemuria (1904), later combined in 1925 into a single volume called The Story of Atlantis and the Lost Lemuria. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

Very Interesting 23 octobre 2010
Par Nathan Bales - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
The author writes this book w/a lot of facts based on verifiable data. It really gives you an in depth look at the history of life on this planet. A history you won't find in any public schools! I am not sure how much is really true, but it sure makes you think about how everything has evolved. . . I am really disappointed that the map links don't work on the Kindle. They are referred to a lot in the book and I could not see them.

historical data from a lost era? 20 octobre 2010

I'm not sure if this book is fiction or non-fiction, but it reads as if the author knew what he was talking about. I find the book very interesting and found myself reading most of it in one sitting. I give the book 4 stars because the MAP links on the Kindle edition don't work. They speak a lot about maps and have links in the book but I can't see them when clicked on! Hope this is fixed soon.

Excellent Book 12 septembre 2011
Par Robin Landry - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This is by far the best book I've read on Atlantis so far, and it was free on my Kindle! Of course after reading it I bought the hard copy because the Kindle copy doesn't have the pictures of the maps in it.

To understand how the information on this book came about, you'd have to know what Theosophy was all about. The writer quotes Madame Blavatsky, a woman who had access to the ancient books of our past, along with ancient maps showing the world thousands of years ago. From what little I know about Theosophy, it's a group of intellectual/spiritual people who want to preserve human knowledge, and hone their esoteric skills in order to see into other dimensions.

The information this groups comes away with, such as this book, shine with the light of truth, at least for me. I've read countless books on Atlantis, but this book gives details that I've only seen in past-life regression work. But what's truly amazing, is that as far as the time tables for Atlantis, what brought about her fall, none of the information I've read ever contradicts itself.

The Story of Atlantis and the Lost Lemuria tells the story of human spirits coming into physical bodies at the beginning of time. Apparently our bodies started out in a pretty hideous way. We literally had an eye in the back of our heads where hair didn't grow, we had some sort of spur on our heels that allowed us to walk backwards, and our bodies were soft and gelatinous. Did I mention a roll of flesh around our heads that we hung decorative things off of? This reminds of me of the headbands that primitive tribes wear even today.

This book tells how humanity has an evolutionary stage of an octave(seven notes) where we first go down into the physical world, yet retain our ability to see the spiritual world(our home), all the way to pure physicality(the farthest we are from God) and then back up the ladder until we allow all of our spiritual essence into our physical bodies. We are currently in the fifth stage of evolution which corresponds to the Hopi saying we are in the fifth world. I love the way it all fits together like this.

Though relatively short, this book, written in 1925, has more wisdom in it than the volumes of history we now enjoy, or not, as most high school students will tell you. Maybe if we taught history from books like these, kids would enjoy it more.

If you're interested in Atlantis, this book is one of the best, especially if you pair it with Rudolf Steiner's book on Atlantis.

Not sure if the hard copy was any different but the kindle edition I purchased did not have the many maps the author ref. to..very frustrating. The content was good however, the subject bounced around so much that it was difficult to follow (material organization)

Once the definitive work on Atlantis. Still a good read. 13 février 2013
Par W. Abraham - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
H. P. Lovecraft includes this book in the villain's library of 'forbidden books' in "The Dunwich Horror" and several of his other stories. As this was a well-known text at the time of his writing, Lovecraft included it along with his fictitious books, like 'The Necronomicon' and the 'Book of Eibon'. This blending of real and fictional texts imparted legitimacy to the fictional texts as his readers would go, "I've heard of that one and that one and that one. I don't recognize that one. I should look it up."

Also, Lovecraft used this book as research for his writing. Since I am planning to write some Cthulhu Mythos tales myself, I thought I should check out Lovecraft's own sources of inspiration!
