Your ideas of Atlantis are partially composed of future memories. They are psychic yearnings toward the ideal civilization--patterns within the psyche. Atlantis is a land that you want to inhabit, appearing in your literature, your dreams, and your fantasies, serving as an impetus for development. It is real and valid. In your terms it is not "yet' physical fact, but in some ways it is more real than any physical fact, for it is a psychic blueprint.
It carries also, however, the imprint of your fears, for the tales say that Atlantis was destroyed. You place it in your past while it exists in your future. Not the destruction alone, but the entire pattern seen through the framework of your beliefs. Beside this, however, many civilizations have come and gone in somewhat the same manner, and the "myth” [of Atlantis] is based somewhat then on physical fact in your terms.
"Atlantis. First of all, take it for granted--as you do--that your ideas about the age of the earth are erroneous. There were intelligent human beings far earlier than is supposed; and because you assume a one-line kind of progression from an apelike creature to man, you ignore any evidence that shows to the contrary. There were highly developed human beings with elaborate civilizations, existing simultaneously with what you might call animal kingdoms--that is, more or less organized primeval animal tribes, possessing their own kinds of ‘primitive' cultures.
"Those animal kingdoms, some of them, utilized tools. Their senses were extremely acute, and their ‘cultures' dealt with a kind of transmission of knowledge that made a highly complicated vocabulary unnecessary.
"Those species did not vie for domination of the earth, but simply shared the same general environment with the more sophisticated groupings beyond their own perimeters. There were many highly technical human cultures, but in your terms not on a global scale. The legend of Atlantis is actually based upon several such civilizations. No particular civilization is the basis, however. Apart from that, the legend as picked up, so to speak, by Plato was a precognition of the future probability, an image of an inner civilization of the mind actually projected outward into the future, where it would be used as a blueprint, dash-the lost grandeur, as, in other terms, Eden became the lost garden of paradise.
Ruburt has implied in [his novel] The Education of Oversoul Seven that some archaeological discoveries about the past are not discovered in your present because they do not exist yet. Now such concepts are difficult to explain in my kind of prose, and in your language. But in certain terms, the ruins of Atlantis have not been found because they have not been placed in your past yet, from the future.
"Now the future is probable. However, in your terms there are ruins of the civilizations that served as the ‘concrete' basis for the one Atlantean legend. Those civilizations were scattered. The so-called ruins would not be found in any one place as expected, therefore. There are some beneath the Aegean Sea, and some beneath an offshoot of the Atlantic, and some beneath the Arctic, for the world had a different shape.
"In that kind of framework, how can I explain an Atlantis? It exists both in your past and future, a probable world that some of you will choose from a model placed in the past of your future--partially based upon fact, in your terms, but with its greatest validity lying in its possibilities.” --Seth Raghuram Alamuri
"The human race is a stage though which various forms of consciousness travel.
Before you can be allowed into systems of reality that are more extensive and open, you must first learn to handle energy; and see, through physical materialization, the concrete result of thought and emotion.”
"In more advanced systems, thoughts and emotions are automatically and immediately translated into action... Therefore, the lessons must be taught and learned well. The responsibility for creation must be clearly understood.”
“… you must be taught and trained to create responsibly. Yours is a training system for emerging consciousness.”
“You are learning to be cocreators. You are learning to be gods as you now understand the term. You are learning responsibility- the responsibility of any individualized consciousness. You are learning to handle the energy that is yourself, for creative purposes.”

I wrote a blog on exactly this concept, just two days before the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
My hypothesis was that all our myths we circulate and keep alive feed the collective consciousness with visions for future events.
This was inspired by my own observation that my subconscious does not separate between self/other, here/there, now/then, real/imagined.
The story being recreated and passed down through millenia causes the subconscious to stear the collective towards creating exactly that.
The site I had my blog on was hacked into and lost all content the day after the earthquake, which really bummed me out because my article spoke clearly of "earthquakes, tsunamis, and technological disasters" precisely, as beign the events told of in Atlantis that may actually be our future! It seemed to have a strange synchronicity, considering the timing. But now I have only the people who read it at the time who can back me up on that.
