Manly P Hall takes us on a journey through one of the most occult ed of all ages.
1. Atlantean Records in Greece & Egypt
Shadowy interval between the prehistoric and historic world, we’re unable to trace the emergence of civilized man as we know him today. Plato’s story of Atlantis came from one of his disciples who in turn heard it from an old Athenian law giver named Solon in 600BC, one of the 7 wise men of Greece. Yet not included among philosophers or scientists, Solon was a statesman bound by political and physical problems of his society. Solon visited Egypt out of respect for their skilful handling of legislature, during this trip the priests of Sais communicated to him the legend of Atlantis.
The Atlantic invasion of the Greek states occurred about 9000 years before the birth of Solon to date it around 11,500 years ago. According to the Egyptians the Atlanteans attempted the conquest of Europe and in the course of this conquest they moved without opposition until they reached the Greek area and here they had their first serious adversary. Back then armies moved as a complete migration of social structures. So instead of being perturbed by the destruction of their homeland they seemed to disappear, it’s possible yet uncertain if they set up the state of Egypt.
Plato alludes to the fact that the Caldeans were the merchant cast of the Atlantean people, leaving remnants of the Caldean philosophy within the culture of all they traded with. Even the Greeks tell that their culture was brought to them by a mysterious figure from an ancient race. None of the ancient civilizations take responsibility for the founding of their own culture, they all say they inherited it from an ancient race. Peoples from elsewhere came with leaders and established higher cultures of order in primitive cultures. A story that is scattered all throughout the earth. All these cultures developed around identical institutions yet with their own local cultural twist. Glyphs and words are identical in both Egypt and Maya demonstrating a migration of ideas around the globe. A powerful influx of world culture.
The destruction of Atlantis was caused by the princes who departed from the divine principles there forefathers had laid down before them to follow as they traveled and colonized the seas. The same story is told in 40-50 scattered culture groups, yesterday we were savages then this man came and then no longer were we savages, we were civilized. Knowledge did not evolve but was given to them as a kind of birthright.
2. Atlantean Records in India & China

Battle between light and darkness, new and old, youth vs the aged. Island of Selon associated by Indian scholars with Atlantis.

3. Atlantean Records in Africa & Polynesia

Many Mayan words are identical in type and meaning to that of Egypt also some strong correlations to Asia.Mayans are really called the Itzas, whose patriarch is Itzamna the father of the Itzas who saved them from a land of where they came and saved them from the gods of waters, carried them safely across the great deluge and brought them to the western hemisphere. Which indicates why the Mayan calendar begins in the 7th cycle, the previous 7 cycles most likely occurring in the Mayans original homeland, that of the continent of Atlantis.Leaf 74 of the manuscript Dresden represents the Mayan glyph representation of the sinking of Atlantis.

Primitive people with no literacy weeping for the loss of their lost written language through oral traditions and storytelling. They declare that the gods of men walked among us, the Incas arrived as nothing more than proud aborigines compared to the great pre-Inca civilization that existed long before their arrival. The great nobility of the pre-Inca setting world records for times of peace, 500 years without war.
Code of the Iroquois Indians the most successful and advanced system of law as certified by professors in the prestigious universities of Oxford, was originally an Atlantean belief system preserved by the Iroquois due to a belief that one day the sea god who gave them the law would return and if his peoples were not following the law exactly as he left it then he would abandon those peoples and leave them to their own ruin.
