lets go back to the source....
Plato was not the source as many believe, Plato was only trying to revive the knowledge of 'Atlantis' originating from the Egypt located Mystery
School of Isis
Q. Since Plato lived circa. 350 B.C. and Atlantis sank circa. 9,700 B.C. (a gap of over 9,000 years), how did he happen to know about Atlantis?
A. According to Plato's Timaeus, Critias learned through his family that the Greek statesman Solon (a distant ancestor of Plato) heard about it from
Egyptian priests during a visit to Saïs, Egypt in about 590 B.C.
The priests claimed to have access to records about Atlantis written on pillars within the temple. Plutarch writes: "His [Solon's] first voyage was to
Egypt . . . [where he] spent some time in study with Psenophis of Heliopolis and Sonchis the Saite, the most learned of all the priests; from whom, as
Plato says, getting knowledge of the Atlantic story, he put it into a poem, and proposed to bring it to the knowledge of the Greeks." But a little
further on: "Now Solon having begun his great work in verse, the history or fable of the Atlantic Island, which he had learned from the wise men of
Saïs, and thought it convenient for the Athenians to know, abandoned it . . . because of his age, and being discouraged at the greatness of the
task." (Life of Solon, 90 A.D.)
lets look into the Wise Men who knew of Atlantis
~ We were told by Plato that the legend of Atlantis came down from the 'wise men of Saïs'...
a mystery school in Egypt that focused on Isis
...This is the Isis of Sais, famous for the inscription concerning her which appeared on the front of her temple in that city: "I, Isis, am
all that has been, that is or shall be; no mortal Man hath ever me unveiled."...
noteworthy is that the Mystery of Isis, indeed the mystery of Atlantis which is part of the Isis mystery school cult
is to forever remain hidden, unfathomable to mortal mankind...just as the inscription above states.
Atlantis existed only in the Isis Mystery School cult, some +9,700 years before Plato cited the place in his writings, most likely the purpose of
mentioning Atlantis at all was to give his contemporary writings a very ancient authority and a source-place that was lost in the fogs of

This is wrong because Atlantis sunk. Some survivors were able to flee due to the technology and wisdom they had at the time. If you are willing to
suspend your range of disbelief in order to understand what Atlantis actually was about, I recommend reading "The Emerald Tablets of Thoth". Thoth was
one of the survivors who fled from Atlantis before it could be covered by the waves. Read this and you WILL expand your wisdom on not just Atlantis,
but wisdom of the ALL.
see the 'knowledge giver' was Hermes who is also thought to be this Toth....
the Hermetic school was the other side of the Isis school
Atlantis was the creation of wisdom handed down to ancient Egypt from the Gods and this knowledge was passed on through the enduring mystery schools &
Atlantis was most likely a place familiar with the Gods but Alien to humans & the planet Earth itself

However, the Emerald Tablets of Thoth the Atlantean are still part of the modern Corpus Hermeticum, for they elaborate and deepen the meaning of
the historical Emerald Tablet and writings of Thoth/Hermes...
