Edgar Cayce's Atlantis

Continued from Part One

Portions of the below Text are excerpted from World Mysteries
Edgar Cayce was born in Hopkinsville, Kentucky, on March 18, 1877. He grew up in the sort of environment that most people grew up in at that time, raised by a family of average means, surrounded by his extended family in an idyllic rural setting. The late 19th century, the period he was born into, was a period of tremendous religious revival around the country, and as a result, Cayce grew to be a man of deep religious feelings, very well versed in the Bible and in the Christian faith. He made a habit of reading the Bible from cover to cover once every year, and even taught Sunday School, being renowned for his ability to make the Bible "come alive". However, though Cayce was from all outward appearances a typical man of his time, he had since his youth displayed numerous psychic abilities, abilities that would forever dominate his destiny.

At the age of six or seven, he told his parents that he could sometimes see visions, occasionally talking to relatives who had recently died. For the most part, his family attributed these experiences to an overactive imagination and paid little attention to them. He found comfort in reading the Bible and decided to read it through from cover to cover, once for every year of his life. Its stories and characters became familiar and very real to him. At the age of thirteen, he had a vision that would influence him for the rest of his life: a beautiful Angel appeared to him and asked him what he most wanted in life. He told her that, more than anything, he wanted to help others - especially children when they were sick. Shortly after the experience, Edgar displayed a talent that could no longer be explained by his family in terms of the boy's imagination: he could sleep on his school books and acquire a photographic memory of their entire contents! It was found that he could sleep on any book, paper or document, and upon awakening, be able to repeat back, word for word, any length of material - even if it contained words far beyond his limited education. 

Despite these abilities, little more of consequence occurred for some time, and the young Edgar Cayce matured into normal adulthood. This period of normalcy continued until Cayce was in his early twenties. However, around the turn of the century, an unexpected event occurred that was to set into motion a series of events that would change his life forever, and shed potential new light upon our understanding of legendary Atlantis.

The Sleeper Awakens

One day young Edgar found that he had developed a severe headache and, after the headache had gone, he found that he had developed laryngitis and was unable to speak for several months. The cause of Cayce's laryngitis could not be diagnosed  by any medical doctors, many of which had tried and failed to cure him. However, a hypno-therapist by the name of Hart, offered to help. Hearing of young Edgar's difficulty, he invited him to be hypnotized in order to cure him of his persistent laryngitis. Oddly enough Cayce, though he was unable to speak normally while awake, was able to respond perfectly well to Hart's questions while in a deep hypnotic state, though the condition returned once he was 'awakened' and returned to normal consciousness. One doctor suggested that Cayce undergo even deeper hypnosis to see if he could diagnose his own ailment through self-hypnosis. A local hypnosis expert, Al Layne  taught self hypnosis and began to work with Cayce.

Cayce was actually able to put himself into a hypnotic trance, but in the 'testing and teaching' process Layne inadvertently  discovered that Cayce was able to uniquely respond to question with great accuracy and clarity from deep levels of the subconscious. Layne noted that when he directed direct questions to Cayce in the super subconscious state that amazing information came forth in response. Upon asking Cayce the question on how to cure himself of his laryngitis,
Cayce quickly responded, giving extraordinary detailed instructions on what should be done.

The recommended cure was remarkably successful, and Cayce's ability to speak returned immediately. The date, March 31, 1901, marked the first time Edgar Cayce would give a psychic reading.  Layne realized something special , something very unusual had happened, and knew Cayce had an exceptional gift. Layne pleaded with Cayce to continue to do the psychic readings, and Cayce reluctantly agreed, with the strong caveat that the information thus uncovered could only be used to help people. This was, of course, the life purpose that he had requested so many years previously when he was visited by the "beautiful angel" in a vision, a life purpose that was now clearly coming to fruition. For the next 22 years, through his readings he helped countless people heal their physical ailments by recommending various combinations of dietary supplements, exercises, special medicines and, in some cases radical, previously unknown forms of treatments and surgery that became the standard years later.

These amazing insights into human biology, physiology and medicine could seemingly not have come from a simple man with limited education and no medical training.Yet  Cayce's insights into human physiology via his psychic 'medical' readings were so incredibly helpful, and astonishingly technical, brilliantly accurate  that he single handedly started what is now called the 'holistic' health movement. He truly became  the first 'channel' of the 20th century. Soon the 'gift' would expand from the medical arena to an even greater scope.  He began to realize his unique talent was a gift  from 'God', and he adamantly insisted it could only be used to help others.

Life Readings

In 1923, Cayce was doing a health reading for a printer from Dayton, Ohio, when he offhandedly mentioned as part of his reading that the printer "once was a monk in a previous lifetime"

Cayce had inadvertently added the fact that the man had lived a past life as a monk, though this had not been the intent of the original reading. This caused a crisis in Cayce's faith, as he believed from his orthodox Christian upbringing that each person lives one life. after much contemplation and research he reconciled reincarnation as being  compatible with Christianity. He found a biblical reference that seemed to verify that John the Baptist had been on the earth in other lifetimes.
So his guidance was that reincarnation is a part of our cycle,  even though the King James bible states that men are born only once.

The fact is many religions believe in reincarnation and teach it. In fact there are more people on the planet (if you include Buddhist, Shinto and Hindu) that accept reincarnation, than ones that do not. Cayce  fortunately continued his readings after accepting the truth of reincarnation, and was comforted to learn that the Essenes and early Christian Gnostics were absolute believers in reincarnation. The readings revealed that Jesus was an Essene. Future readings on this topic stated quite clearly  that the bible had been altered  to filter out reincarnation teachings and that the bible was changed over time by the political 'church' in order to gain control over the populace.

This acceptance of the souls  true cycle opened up a new comprehensive and expansive direction  for Cayce's readings, and a new form of reading, the "life reading", was developed to include the past lives of souls. Accordingly "Life Readings" became the standard, dealing with an individual's previous lifetimes, as well as the person's potential and purpose in the present. The principle and universal law of karma, 'cause and effect', often included important information revealing that the core issues  one faced in the present were due to activity in past lives. In time, the topics in the readings were further expanded to include mental and spiritual counsel, philosophy and contemporary spirituality, meditation, dream interpretation, intuition, history and ancient civilizations and even advice for improving personal relationships.

Between that fateful day on October 11, 1923 and his death on January 3, 1945, Cayce gave over 2,500 life readings. Over time, Cayce came to the conclusion that a person's life path is determined by "the will of the individual, together with influences from past incarnations". He developed (or redeveloped) the concept he called "karmic patterns" that  arose from a subject's past lives.  Cayce counseled his patients to do good in this life in order to balance out previous errors, mistakes and  imbalances. These were sometimes referred to as ' karmic', but the readings were clear in stating that all karma is 'toward the self' and were chosen lessons to help us 'grow'. "Thus the soul is to make use of its successive rebirths to balance the positive and negative karmic patterns by subduing selfish impulses and encouraging creative ones." 

The Akashic Records

In order to acquire the information his patient was requesting, Cayce first contacted the soul or  'higher self' of the person requesting the reading. Then he entered a realm of what he called the Akashic records.  The
"Akashic Records" were also referred to (by Cayce) as "The Book of Life", a universal, spiritual hall of records in which the lives of all people who have  lived on the earth  throughout history were recorded in every detail. The information Cayce provided from the 'Hall of Records' was truly astonishing and remarkably detailed.

When performing a reading, in order to retrieve his patient's "file" from this hall of records, Cayce underwent a mysterious journey, which he describes here: 

     "I see myself as a tiny dot out of my physical body, which lies inert before me.  I find myself oppressed by darkness and there is a feeling of terrific loneliness. Suddenly, I am conscious of a white beam of light. As this tiny dot, I move upward following the light, knowing that I must follow it or be lost. As I move along this path of light I gradually become conscious of various levels upon which there is movement. Upon the first levels there are vague, horrible shapes, grotesque forms such as one sees in nightmares. Passing on, there begin to appear on either side misshapen forms of human beings with some part of the body magnified. Again there is change and I become conscious of gray-hooded forms moving downward. Gradually, these become lighter in color. ...  

"Then the direction changes and these forms move upward and the color of the robes grows rapidly lighter. Next, there begin to appear on either side vague outlines of houses, walls, trees, etc., but everything is motionless.... As I pass on, there is more light and movement in what appear to be normal cities and towns. With the growth of movement I become conscious of sounds, at first indistinct rumblings, then music, laughter, and singing of birds. There is more and more light, the colors become very beautiful, and there is the sound of wonderful music. The houses are left behind, ahead there is only a blending of sound and color. Quite suddenly I come upon a hall of records. It is a hall without walls, without ceiling, but I am conscious of seeing an old man who hands me a large book, a record of the individual for whom I seek information.  ...

"Each person's 'file' in the record contains everything they ever thought, said or did throughout their entire lives, and contains the same information regarding what they would do in the future. Once he had retrieved that person's record, Cayce would then provide his patient with a sampling of information that would be most beneficial to them at that time in their life sojourns." 

One of the most common recurring themes in Cayce's life readings has been Atlantis. Many people who formerly lived in Atlantis, according to Cayce, have been reincarnating into bodies in the twentieth century in massive numbers. Many are bringing the knowledge of highly advanced technologies that were utilized in Atlantis. This then brings a great responsibility to use this knowledge and technology wisely, and not make the mistakes that led to the destruction of Atlantis.  

There were , per Cayce,  three major  "ages" of Atlantis : The beginning of Atlantis to 50,000 b.c., Atlantis from 50,000 to 23,000 b.c. and from 23,000 to 10,000 b.c. to the final destruction of Atlantis. It is implied that the 'Sons of Belial' Atlanteans used genectic engineering and created a race of 'automatons' or robotically controlled sub-humans, some as animal-man mixtures to serve as workers and slave like servants. The Law of One group however were very opposed to this enslavement.

The First Age of Atlantis - to 210,000 to 50,000 BC

In Cayce's visions, the geography of the world at the time when human history began on Atlantis was dramatically different than it is today. Many areas of Earth that today are ocean were once dry ground, and many places that were once lush and fertile are now desert. Much of central Europe was underwater, Norway and the Caucausus forming the western boundary of what we now call Eurasia, their rivers flowing into the Atlantic.

Of what is now America, the desert southwest and high plains areas of Arizona, Utah and Nevada were above ground, the Midwest being almost entirely underwater covered by  a huge salt lake,  and the East Coast formed  the lowland areas of the continent of Atlantis. The Mississippi river was much wider, the mountains of Arkansas were large islands.

Tse, the Nile, flowed west across the Sahara into the Atlantic, instead of north into the Mediterranean.

The desert areas that are now the Sahara and Mongolia were lush, fertile plains, the area now known as the Sahara being the cradle of humanity. However, though these differences were dramatic, the most dramatic difference of all, according to Cayce's readings, was that the Earth was - from our perspective - actually upside down, the north pole now occupying the area that once was the south pole, and vice versa!  Also, according to Cayce, Atlantis occupied the much of the same position it did in Plato's writings, though Cayce's information is far more precise:  

    "The position ... the continent of Atlantis occupied in 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, British Honduras, Yucatan and America. There are some protruding portions ... that must have at one time or another been a portion of this great continent. The British West Indies, or the Bahamas, are 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. "  According to Cayce, man's experience on Earth has been much longer than currently accepted by the scientific community, perhaps millions of years. As a result, man has seen many Earth changes in his time as, according to Cayce's visions, Earth's surface is highly unstable, and has undergone dramatic changes over the millions of years that humans have inhabited it. "Many lands have disappeared, many have appeared and disappeared again and again during these periods."

 Cayce also stated that the population of Earth at the time of the foundation of Atlantis was fairly large, over 130,000,000, and that man has been in existence for over 10.5 million years.

     "The numbers of human souls then in the Earth plane being a hundred and thirty and three million (133,000,000). The period in the world's existence from the present time being ten and one-half million (10,500,000) years ago. When man came in the Earth plane as the lord of that in that sphere, man appeared in five places then at once - the five senses, the five reasons, the five spheres, the five developments, the five nations. "

The Origins of  Man

 Cayce described the beginning of mankind as five different races, planted in five different places on earth, which he referred to as "the five projections". Cayce explained that five was the number of mortal man, as he is divided into five races, black, brown, red, yellow and white, he has five fingers, and five senses: sight, hearing, touch, taste and smell.

    "This, as we find, is that element which represents man in his physical form and the attributes to which he may become conscious from the elemental or spiritual to the physical consciousness. As the senses; as the sending of the various forces that bring to man the activities in the sphere in which he finds himself."

Edgar Evans Cayce interprets this statement thusly: "As I understand this statement it refers to the five physical senses: sight, touch, hearing, smelling, taste. It sounds as if spiritual beings projected themselves into materiality, specifically to participate in experiencing these senses or sensations common to a physical body." 

 Cayce's description of the first beings on Earth is interesting and fascinating.  According to his visions, before Adam was created, a group of spiritual beings  manifested themselves into the physical plane by sheer force of will, creating 'thought-form' semi physical bodies for themselves that were not truly physical or human, as we understand humanity.

     "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 their 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 which builded 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 color as partook of their surroundings much in the manner as the chameleon in the present."

These beings, according to Cayce's testimony, predated Adam. A survey of Cayce's visions on the subject gives the idea that a race of humanoid beings inhabited Earth before God created Adam, but not before animals, which also predated Adam in Cayce's visions. Animals were also created before man according to the account in Genesis (1:24-26). Most likely the animals of Genesis 2:19-20 were the animals we know today, and the animals of the time of the "pre-adamic race" described by Cayce and covered by the account in Genesis 1:24-26 were probably those of the Pleistocene Period, (1,800,000-9,000 b.c.) - that is, mammoths, saber-toothed tigers, and primitive manlike creatures.

Cayce's son, Edgar Evans Cayce, explains the odd nature of these early, "pre-adamic" humans: "I would interpret it as implying that the Earth was proceeding along an evolutionary pattern (remember animals inhabited the Earth long before man - there probably were man-like creatures) which was interrupted by the projection into materiality of these thought forms. It sounds as if they, in many cases, mixed with animals, the results being sometimes quite bizaare.

Pre-Adamic Race

So, according to Cayce, there was indeed a race of humans, or at least humanlike beings, before the creation of Adam.  "In Atlantean land before Adam - [the entity was] timekeeper for those who were called things or servants or workers of the people."  These spiritual beings who had taken on primitive fleshly forms apparently decided that the material forms they had originally taken on were too inefficient to perform everyday tasks efficiently, and decided a new form of mankind had to be created:

     "In Atlantean land when one individual first saw the changes that eventually made for that opening for the needs of, or the preparation for, the universal consciousness to bring into the experience what is known to man as the first created man ... in the days when the sons of God came together to reason in the elements as to the appearance of man in the physical on Earth's plane." 

Cayce describes the original creation, including how plants, animals, and the pre-Adamic race of proto-humans , pre physical beings of light came into being as thought form projections: 

      "In the matter of form, as we find, 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 or manlike creatures. 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 ten or twelve feet in stature, and well proportioned throughout. The ones that became the most useful were those as would be classified as the ideal stature, that was of both male and female; and the most ideal was Adam, who was in that period, when he (Adam) appeared, as five in one - See?" 

So, apparently the pre-Adamic race encompassed a wide variation of sizes and shapes, but it was not until  the 1st 'Adam' entered  that the ideal combination of size, shape, intelligence and manual dexterity had been achieved.

The original "prototype" workers, the giants, were capable of lifting great weights and were more likely to survive under hostile conditions, but they also likely lacked the ability to perform detailed work, due to the large size of their hands. Moreover, their food requirements were much larger than the new Adam-class human, which made them less efficient.

The dwarfish- 'Hobbit' type proto-humans were a reality in Atlantis, per Cayce. It appears these were between 3 and 4 feet in height, and  gentle, rather hairy people. They were a bit more akin to the 'elementals' or  Devic life of the Fae Kingdom, than other humanoids of the time. They were very industrious and had a great sense of playfulness and humor. Their ringing belly-laugh was contagious and heart warming.  They existed for thousands of years, and many souls were part of the 'Hobbit' realm of dwarves. However, as time evolved this population dwindled to chosen extinction, as the smaller size put them at a disadvantage. Souls chose better fitting bodies for reincarnation. Yet they were a large part of pre-Adamic earth.

 Cayce gave a descriptive reading for  one of the pre-Adamic race in one of his visions. 

     "In Atlantean land in those periods before Adam was in the earth, among those who were then thought projections and the physical being had the union of sex in the one body, and yet a real musician on the pipes or reed instruments."

He also speaks of the original 'Red Race' coming from Atlantis.  There, the "red" race came into being, those that in appearance look most like Native Americans, both of North, Central and South America:

     "[In Atlantis arose] the red or mixture peoples - or colors; known later as the 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 have been followed more closely by 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."

This rapid increase in technology was used in different ways by the descendants of the pre-Adamic race, those humanlike creatures that the fallen angels had "projected" themselves into, and the Adamic race, which had been specially created by God for his use. Whereas the Adamic race used the technology to improve the standard of living for all of their fellow men regardless of their racial background, the pre-Adamic race instead used it to enslave their fellow man.  

     "In Atlantean land during periods when there were activities that brought about questionings that arose between the two great forces, the period before the first destruction of the land - among children of Law of One who cared much about those "things" that were parts of the activity having been brought about by the great teacher in those experiences - entity aided in helping these to overcome, when they became aware of the relationships of the individual entity to the universal consciousness of God."

Sons of Belial

Over time, with the advent of civilization and technology, the divisions between the Adamic and pre-Adamic races became increasingly more apparent. Whereas the Adamic race held on to the belief in the one God who had specially created them, the pre-Adamic race refuted the belief in the existence of God, instead focusing on the acquisition of wealth and power - worshipping the creature rather than the Creator. As these differences became more and more clear, the world came to be divided into two basic divisions: the Sons of the Law of One, those who held to the belief in the one God as the Creator of the universe and of mankind, and the Sons of Belial, those who denied the existence of God and instead worshipped themselves.

Cayce explained it thus: "In Atlantean land during those periods of early rise of sons of Belial as oppositions that became more and more materialized as the powers were applied for self-aggrandizement."

This "self-aggrandizement" took the form of the accumulation of wealth and power into the hands of a very few, with the result being extreme social stratification, where perhaps only a few dozens or hundreds of beings ruled over millions of slaves. This situation, of course, was unacceptable to the Sons of the Law of One:

     "We find that in those periods there was not a laboring for the sustenance of life (as in the present, but rather individuals who were children of the Law of One - and some who were the children of Belial (in the early experience) - were served by automatons, or THINGS, that were retained by individuals or groups to do the labors of a household, or to cultivate the fields or the like, or to perform the activities of artisans."

And it was concerning these "things" about which much of the disturbing forces grew to be factors to be reckoned with, between the Children of the Law of One and the Sons of Belial."   Much like the issue of slavery which, in the nineteenth century, sparked off a bloody civil war in America, this division over the treatment of these slaves,  among other things, appears to have touched off a civil conflict in Atlantis which led to the First Destruction of Atlantis her things, appears to have touched off a civil conflict in Atlantis which led to the First Destruction of Atlantis.

High Technology and The 1st Destruction

While The Sons of the Law of One were busy developing harmony and using technology for benevolent means and to advance Godly  plans for mankind, the Sons of Belial were greedy and power hungry...and had been hard at work developing weapons of mass destruction in order to enslave mankind.

     "In Atlantean land at the time of withdrawing from the Law of One - establishment of Sons of Belial - [the entity] was a priestess in temple built in opposition to the Sons of the Law of One - during time when there was the creating of the high influence of radial activity from rays of the sun that were turned on crystals in the pits that made connections with internal influences of the Earth." 

From the sound of this, it appears that in Atlantis, the peaceful coexistence - and possible intermarriage - between the Sons of the Law of One and the children of Belial ceased, and two distinct factions developed. The sons of Belial had apparently tired of the compassionate, humanistic approach of the Sons of the Law of One and, instead of using their technological prowess to help benefit mankind, tried to use it to conquer the world.

The Atlanteans, both the Sons of the Law of One and the children of Belial, had developed a high technology using crystals and solar energy that they used to create electrical power for lighting, heating, travel, and related needs. The sons of Belial, however, broke ranks with the Sons of the Law of One and attempted to use that technology as a weapon. According to Cayce, the children of Belial had actually developed that technology to the point where they were able not only to harness the power of the Sun, but of the volcanic forces of the earth itself. However, they foolishly underestimated the power that they unleashed, and instead of releasing themselves from the yoke of the Law of One and conquering the world, they instead brought destruction on themselves, and great damage to the island of Atlantis in the process:

     "In Atlantean land during those periods when there were the destruction or separations of the land during the period of the first destruction - [the entity was] among those who aided in the preparation of the explosives or those things that set in motion the fires of the inner portions of the Earth that were turned into destructive forces." 

The children of Belial attempted to harness the volcanic forces of the Earth in order to defeat the power of the Sons of the Law of One, and enslave mankind, but they instead brought great destruction to the island of Atlantis. As a result of their arrogance, they released forces that they were unable to completely control, and the resulting release of volcanic energy resulted in the division of the island of Atlantis into several lesser islands, with a substantial portion of the island falling into the sea.

This, then, was the end of the first age of Atlantis.

The Second Great Destruction: 50,000- 10,500 BC

Great Atlantis had been greatly damaged, but not destroyed by the arrogance of power displayed by the sons of Belial. The majority of the original continent remained, though it was now separated into five lesser islands, the greatest of which was the island of Poseidia. It was here that the Sons of the Law of One remained steadfast in their beliefs in God and their mission to serve mankind. Having been proven clearly right by the disastrous failure of the children of Belial, the Sons of the Law of One continued developing technologies for the betterment of mankind.

     "In Atlantean land during those periods of greater expansion as to ways, means and manners of applying greater conveniences for the people of the land - things of transportation, the aeroplane, as called today, but then as ships of the air, for they sailed not only in the air but in other elements also."

These technological advancements allowed the Sons of the Law of One to develop ships that would allow them to travel through the air, on the land, and under the water, just as we have today. Moreover, they also had developed forms of wireless communications just the same as we have developed today:

     "In city of Peos in Atlantis - among people who gained understanding of application of nightside of life or negative influences in the Earth's spheres, of those who gave much understanding to the manner of sound, voice and picture and such to peoples of that period.... In Poseidia the entity dwelt among those that had charge of the storage of the motivative forces from the great crystals that so condensed the lights, the forms of the activities, as to guide the ships in the sea and in the air and in conveniences of the body as television and recording voice."

The level of technology of Atlantis even after the first destruction was more advanced than it is today. Atlantis had many of the same technical advances we have, including television, radio, though it was even more developed. Television was a 3d projection, and no doubt they enjoyed a form of 'internet' that was also a 3d projection of sorts. Their ability to travel was highly advanced including rapid forms of air, land and sea travel.  Atlantis at its peak was extremely technologically advanced.

Yet divisions began to form between the Aryans and Poseidons.  Before the 2nd breakup, Atlantis had been harmonic and united, but after the separation into islands, the grew apart. Aryan was the industrial and agricultural center, and they lost site of spiritual values, become densely ingrained in 3d. An elite class emerged and they sought money, power and control. Poseida was more spiritual and kept true to the tenets and harmonics of high value.

     "The Atlanteans (of Aryan) were becoming decadent, or being broken up owing to the disputes between the Children of the Law of One (Poseida) and the Sons of Belial
(Aryan)” .

The level of technology available to the upper class privileged  at that time was impressive, and apparently the technology  was available for a good long time, as the period before the first and second destruction of Atlantis was roughly 40,000 years, according to Cayce's timeline. However, as it is today, technology invariably finds its way into military uses, and the Aryans, or 'Sons of Belial', came under an aristocracy  leadership  that became greedy for power and dominance.

The Crystals

Cayce often mentioned in his visions powerful "crystals" through which tremendous energies were harnessed. The Crystals were originally maintained by the initiates of the Sacred Scientist-Priests of the Law of One. These were the tall Beings of Poseida, averaging 10 to 12 feet in height.  The scientist priest (Atla-Ra) were initiates and maintained crystals for benevolent purposes. However as the Aryan industrial might gained greater power, the Poseidons were duped by cunning political maneuvers and Aryans took over the crystals over time.

The Aryans began to use the 'mighty crystal' for military use.

     "In the Atlantean land at time of development of electrical forces that dealt with transportation of craft from place to place, photographing at a distance, reading inscriptions through walls even at a distance, overcoming gravity itself, preparation of the crystal, the terrible mighty crystal, much of this brought destruction.... Before the second destruction when there was the dividing of the islands, when the temptations were begun in activities of Sons of Belial and Children of 'Law of One'. Entity among those that interpreted the messages received through the crystals and the fires that were to be the eternal fires that are the eternal fires of nature."

The Mighty & Terrible Crystal

The entity that Cayce was receiving this information for in the reading was once one of the sons of Belial, who once again began using the crystal technology for offensive purposes. Like our modern satellites, these techniques could see over long distances, even through solid barriers, and could even deliver energy over long distances, for constructive or destructive purposes. The whole Atlantean power structure was apparently based upon one or more of these giant "crystals", which the Atlanteans referred to as the firestone or 'Tuaoi' stone.

     "About the firestone - the entity's activities then made such applications as dealt both with the constructive as well as destructive forces in that period. It would be well that there be given something of a description of this so that it may be understood better.... [The firestone was housed] in the center of a building which would today be said to be lined with nonconductive stone.... The building above the stone was oval; or a dome wherein there could be ... a portion for rolling back, so that the activity of the stars - the concentration of energies that emanate from bodies that are on fire themselves, along with elements that are found and not found in the Earth's atmosphere. The concentration through the prisms or glass (as it acted upon the instruments that were connected with the various modes of travel through induction methods which made much the [same] character of control as would in the present day be termed remote control through radio vibrations or directions; though the kind of force impelled from the stone acted upon the motivating forces in the crafts themselves. The building was constructed so that when the dome was rolled back there might be little or no hindrance in the direct application of power to various crafts that were to be impelled through space - whether within the radius of vision or whether directed under water or under other elements, or through other elements.... These, then, were impelled by the concentration of rays from the stone which was centered in the middle of the power station, or powerhouse (as would be the term in the present)."

Not only did the ancient Atlanteans have air, land and sea craft, as well as the ability to communicate with that craft via television and radio, but they even had the ability to transmit energy to the engines of these craft "through the ether" via these crystal "firestones". Like the methods Nicola Tesla would (re)invent thousands of years later, the Atlanteans were able to transmit energy through the air, without the benefit of wires. However the sons of Belial  began to use this high technology for destructive purposes:

     "In Atlantean land during those periods when there were those determining as to whether there would be the application of the laws of the children of One or of Sons of Belial in turning into destructive channels those influences of infinite power as were being gained from the elements as well as from what is termed spiritual or supernatural powers in the present. Entity wavered between choices and when the destruction came about by the use of those rays as were applied for beneficial forces, entity misapplied ability."

 First Exodus to Egypt & Og

Once again the children of Belial were on the brink of destroying Atlantis, and the Sons of the Law of One decided that it was finally time to begin leaving Atlantis, before the inevitable destruction came.

     "In Atlantean land during the periods of exodus due to foretelling or fore-ordination of activities which were bringing about destructive forces. Among those who were not only in Yucatan but in the Pyrenees and Egyptian land."

Cayce's visions spoke of exoduses to a number of places, most particularly South and Central America, Spain, and Egypt, as well as North America, in the area of Nevada and Colorado, which at that time was called "Mayra". (Note the similarity to Maya )

Not long after these exoduses began, another great destruction, the second great destruction of Atlantis occurred, and the islands became even smaller and more divided than before. Many of the law of One, and some of Belial, however, had already begun building up new homes in the more stable lands surrounding Atlantis, a colonial period that would characterize the last great age of Atlantis before its final demise.

The 3rd Age & Final Destruction

More than half of Cayce's life readings concerning Atlantis cover this period of Atlantis' history, a period that covers approximately 10,500-9500 b.c., near the end of which time the final destruction of Atlantis and the Great Flood of Noah occurred. Cayce believed that he had an incarnation during this period in the form of an Egyptian priest named Ra-Ta, who was renowned for his ability to communicate with the Atlanteans who had invaded the land of Egypt in force after the final destruction of their homeland. And, as we shall see, once again the warring factions of the Sons of the Law of One and the children of Belial continued on during the Egyptian sojourn.

 A thousand years or more before the final destruction of Atlantis, which did not occur until somewhere between 10,500 and 9500 b.c., many of the Law of One had emigrated away from Poseidia and the other islands of Atlantis wherein they had dwelt for so many thousands of years. They traveled to many places, including North America, in that portion that is now the desert southwest, Central America in the area of the Yucatan, South America to the area around Peru and Europe around the Pyrenees area of Spain and France. However, by far the largest single contingent of Atlantean refugees came to North Africa, particularly to the area now known as Egypt.

The Final Egyptian Exodus

The Egyptian sojourn was somewhat different for the Sons of the Law of One than their experiences in battling the forces of darkness on their home island of Poseidia. As the last remnants of Poseidia and the rest of the islands of Atlantis began to slip beneath the waves as a result of the children of Belial's unceasing warfare, more and more of the Law of One decided that they would best be able to serve mankind from other, more stable locations around the Earth. However Egypt, though it was geo-physically stable, was undergoing a sociopolitical earthquake.

Edgar Evans Cayce explains the situation in Egypt around the time of the final destruction: From between 10,000 and 11,000 BC  a tribe from the Carpathian region invaded and conquered Egypt. One of the leaders of this tribe was a priest named Ra-Ta. Ra-Ta was Edgar Cayce (or Edgar Cayce was Ra-Ta, depending upon your point of view). In Egypt Ra-Ta's religious teachings attracted a large following. However, there was already political friction in Egypt and tension between the ruling classes and the native Egyptians. Ra-Ta was caught up in this political intrigue, and after a native rebellion, he was banished for nine years to what is now Abyssinia.

At the height of the confusion refugees began arriving in Egypt from Atlantis. The Atlanteans, scientifically more advanced than the Egyptians, found little in common with the inhabitants of Egypt, and began to set up their old way of life. Leaders of the ruling class and leaders of the native rebellion soon realized that these incoming Atlanteans with their superior scientific knowledge and radically different social and religious views posed a new threat. A leader had to be found, around whom the people could rally, to turn the power of the Atlanteans into constructive channels. In an effort to bring some order our of the chaos the leaders in power decided to recall the priest from banishment. Only he might correlate the activities of all these conflicting groups.

This move was successful and with the cooperation of the rulers of Egypt, the priest, the Atlanteans and the natives there ensued a period of great advancement in human relations. The then civilized portions of the world enjoyed a period of moral, mental, spiritual and physical development.  In order to accomplish this sociopolitical revolution and blend the three races together seamlessly, institutions were developed to help facilitate the movement towards consolidation. "Combination hospital and educational institutions (called the Temple of Sacrifice and the Temple of Beauty) were set up, and probably functioned like the psychiatric wing of a modern hospital. There the masses flocked for mental as well as physical therapy."

 These institutions were needed both to heal the people both physically and psychologically. The Temple of Sacrifice focused on physical healing, including routine healings, surgeries, and even what appears to be radiation treatments and chemotherapy, where the Temple of Beauty focused on psychological healing, functioning as a combination psychiatric hospital/finishing school, helping heal mental illnesses and teach proper social behavior.

 However, they accomplished even more than this, as Edgar Evans Cayce (son of Edgar) explains:  

Evidently, besides low mental development and/or lack of moral judgment and self-control, some people classed as servants or "things" or "automatons" had physical deformities linking them to the animal world. They may have had tails, feathers, or scales. This was a holdover from the early projection of souls into materiality for selfish purposes at which time monstrosities as well as creatures of beauty were created....but may also have been a result of deliberate genetic engineering to create a 'slave race for manual and filed labor.  All the trappings of civilization were added to the new blended culture, including social skills, education, a written language, a law code, electrical power for lighting, heating, and related needs, even recipes for Atlantean cuisine.

However, even as the last remnants of Atlantis were sinking beneath the waves, the sons of Belial among the Atlanteans who had migrated to Egypt began once again to exercise their influence over the newly found institutions of health and healing, twisting their abilities to maintain a 'control' over the 'things' of labor. "In Atlantean land when groups were being sent to other lands for various purposes - among those coming to Egypt. With establishing of Temple of Sacrifice entity set about to use truths and tenets that had been part of Atlantean experience, these used as suggestions with elements and drugs used as sedatives for activities in Temple of Sacrifice, or for surgery, in preparing individuals for definite services by  removal of those things that would cause one to be different-minded."

Although the wording here seems benign enough, the actual meaning of this statement is that the Egyptians were brainwashed into accepting Atlantean rule using coercive psychotherapy combined with drugs. Even worse, those subjects who refused to accept the new order had their brains surgically altered. In other words, they were lobotomized, their free will physically taken from them. In their desire for order, the Atlantean balance between the Sons of the Law of One and the children of Belial again fell towards totalitarianism and, even though their intentions may have been noble, they began to treat other races as slaves once more. This tendency became more and more pronounced until they began to develop mechanical means of controlling, even enslaving, large masses of people at once.

 Edgar Evans Cayce explains, "With the use of chemical-brain control agents it may be possible to control the individual and the masses and to do this unobtrusively and without the active cooperation of the victims ... the following extract sounds as if a similar technique was used in Atlantis: '[The entity was] among those that were set upon to apply their abilities in relationship to the various conditions that were to be brought about to impel a people to submit to the influences that might be brought to bear.' (Additional data in the reading indicates that electrical and mechanical appliances were used to accomplish this.)" 

So, even as their home islands of Atlantis were sinking beneath the waves, the sons of Belial were still trying to use every means necessary to conquer and enslave the world. The innocuous sounding "electrical and mechanical appliances" actually indicates an extremely sinister agenda on the part of the sons of Belial: to turn everyone on earth into remote-controlled slaves, even from birth - shades of  the MATRIX!

Edgar Evans Cayce, (son of Edgar) writing his commentary on these visions in 1968, was quite cogent in his assessment of the sinister implications contained in these statements:

     "Some day tiny radios placed in the brain may make possible the enslavement of entire nations. Such equipment might be used to equip a child with a socket mounted under the scalp from which electrodes extended to selected areas of the brain. Later a miniature radio receiver and antenna could be plugged into the socket. Schafer says, "From that time on, the child's sensory perceptions and muscular activity could be either modified or completely controlled by bio-electric signals radiated from state-controlled transmitters. The "once human being" would be the cheapest of machines to create and operate."

The Hall of Records

Fortunately, the Sons of the Law of One had foresight enough to compile all of their records in several places that were very difficult to destroy. The most well known of these places, according to Cayce, is Egypt:

     "In Atlantean land before the final destruction - when the priest came from Egypt to Poseidia to gain understanding of the Law of One (or God) that there might be records carried back to Egypt.... Entity had charge of records brought to Egypt [and] was one who PERSONALLY cared for the records that were brought by the leaders of that people for preservation in that portion of man's experience in the Earth.... Entity aided the priest in the preparation of the manner of building the temple of records that lies just beyond that enigma that still is the mystery of mysteries to those who seek to know what were the manners of thought of the ancient sons who made man, beast - as part of the consciousness." 

This "mystery of mysteries" is of course the Sphinx which, as we have discussed in, is believed by many to be the guardian of an ancient Hall of Records as described by Cayce. These records are located either under or near the Sphinx, between the Sphinx and the "Pyramid of Records", as described by Cayce:

     "The entity was among the first to set the records that are yet to be discovered or yet to be had of those activities in the Atlantean land, and for the preservation of the data that is yet to be found from the chambers of the way between the Sphinx and the pyramid of records."

 Cayce, unlike modern archaeologists, believes that the pyramids were built around 10,500 BC  to house ancient information about the history of mankind, specifically about Atlantis. As we have seen, though the date of the building of the pyramids is probably the conventional dating of 2500 BC., the building of the Sphinx, based upon water erosion all over the Sphinx and the Sphinx Enclosure, was most likely built around the time of the Atlanteans, ca. 10,500 BC. However, we will never be certain until the ancient Hall of Records is opened and the relevant information is deciphered.

Cayce even gives detailed instructions on what the records are and where the Hall of Records can be found:

     "A record of Atlantis from the beginning of those periods when the Spirit took form, or began the encasements in that land; and the developments of the peoples throughout their sojourn; together with the record of the first destruction, and the changes that took place in the land; with the record of the sojournings of the peoples and their varied activities in other lands, and a record of the meetings of all the nations of lands, for the activities in the destruction of Atlantis; and the building of the pyramid of initiation, together with whom, what and where the opening of the records would come, that are as copies from the sunken Atlantis. For with the change, it [Atlantis] must rise again. In position, this lies - as the sun rises from the waters - as the line of the shadows (or light) falls between the paws of the Sphinx; that was set later as the sentinel or guard and which may not be entered from the connecting chambers from the Sphinx's right paw until the time has been fulfilled when the changes must be active in this sphere of man's experience. Then [it lies] between the Sphinx and the river."


Cayce's Atlantis is quite enigmatic and matches on many points with both the Bible and Plato's accounts of the ancient world. Cayce is considered to be the most credible of modern day psychic visionaries and truly his readings are compelling and consistent in their details. Though skeptics may state that it is possible that Cayce may have simply had an excellent imagination and sharp memory recall, some of the things he predicted, such as television, lasers, and atomic power, were not yet available at the time of his visions. Though purists would argue that a study of Cayce in context of the Bible is only marginally useful, some of the information gleaned from his insights has, as we have seen, proven to be extremely enlightening. And even though the Great Flood of the ancient world wiped out all life on Earth save that saved on the ark, records of the ancient world apparently still exist in various parts of the world.

Moreover, and more interestingly, Cayce said that only at a certain time, "when the time has been fulfilled", can the secret chamber be entered again, and the Hall of Records found, with their precious cargo of truth. And when is that time? When Atlantis Rises Again!

     "It would be well if this entity were to seek either of the three phases of the ways and means in which those records of the activities of individuals were preserved - the one in the Atlantean land that sank, which will rise and is rising again another in the place of the records that leadeth from the Sphinx in Giza to the hall of records, in the Egyptian land, where the temple there is overshadowing same. The third in the lands of the Maya."
