May 05, 2008 rated it it was amazing
I read a first edition (published mid sixties?) of this book,... many of the "speculations" surrounding this material are continually being verified or confirmed...Intuitively, most of us realize that what's taught in the history books at school is BS, and this is a whole new can of worms... Where did humanity come from and what are we doing here?! A question that all major religions tackle and that science tries to "rationalize" to the point of obliterating all possibility in favor of what's ac ...more

Fascinating!! This book briefly covers readings given by Edgar Cayce--America's greatest psychic--on entities having previously existed in the lost land known as Atlantis.

According to Cayce, there were 2 phases that led to the destruction of Atlantis. The readings state that many of its inhabitants--being warned of the impending doom--emmigrated to Egypt, the Pyrenees (Portugal, Spain and France) as well as to the Yucatan/Central and Southern American continents. Cayce also believed that many A

I found this book to be a much quicker read than Many Mansions, which I had read several years ago. There were a few things I found intriguing in this book. His theory that we had originally been created by God as spiritual entities, and eventually found our way into material earthly bodies as humans evolved was very interesting- it was an angle I hadn't even considered before. As an atheist, the creation theory holds no water for me- but if there is/was a God, this spiritual theory makes much m ...more

This is a small paperback peppered with transcripts of Cayce readings interspersed with commentary by a member of the Cayce family.

Fascinating! I've been a student of Cayce's work most of my adult life and I never grow tired of it because there is so much there. To discover. And apply.

If we are indeed many of the Atlanteans back again to learn the lessons that they did not, we have got a long long way to go. As a species, the greed that in many ways precipitated their downfall is in full eviden

When you keep in mind that this book came out in 1968, when the internet and mobile phones weren’t a thing for a long time yet, the technical progress we made since then and that Cayce and his son didn’t really knew what some of the technical things described in Atlantis were ...
It says multiple times that they had great communications with what seemed like far distances. Did they had something like the internet!!!?? Also it mentions these „THINGS“ and automatons a lot. Robots? AI? 🤯

This book culls together various readings of past entities with incarnations of lives on Atlantis, which was not so much a place as an era in the foundation of humanity. The readings have references to Atlantean land and Poseida land. Mu, Oz, and Lemuria are mentioned in later Atlantean time.

It draws from those readings a picture of life with aircraft, submarines, electronics, and nuclear power. It is where/when spiritual beings first projected themselves into physical existence on this planet.

Well, the first book I've rated one star.

Why? In my view a book needs to be one or more of three things - entertaining, informative and interesting. This is none of those.

I came to it with an open mind - you kind of have to given the subject matter. It was always unlikely to be entertaining. I can't honestly say it was ever going to be so grounded in fact as to be informative.

But I did expect it to be interesting. It wasn't. Its not helped by the stilted language of Cayce's readings themselves,

There aren't enough words to describe Edgar's contribution to the human race. What he lived every day the rest of us can only dream of. Why modern history chooses to ignore Atlantis and all of the facts that point straight to it I will never understand. ...more

Fascinating book. Much of the material makes much more sense to us in 2017 than it did in the 1940's before atomic power, lasers, genetic engineering, clones, robots, etc. There is also a lot of agreement between this material and the channeled communications from the "Law of One", the Ra material which was published in the 1980's. There is even a lot of agreement with the channeled "Seth" materials, written in the 1960's. My rational mind wants to ignore all this "stuff" which does not cleanly ...more

Very interesting. The author says that Atlantis was destroyed three times. He also states that many of the inhabitants saw this coming, and emigrated to Egypt, among other places. It is a shame so much of the history and knowledge of this wonderful civilization was lost to the ages. He references past lives existing in Atlantis in his other readings, and how these lives affected the more recent times on earth. Apparently, humans have been on earth far longer than anyone knew. (According to Cayce ...more

The "readings" that were quoted were in weird old-fashioned language and hard to follow. Then the "current" day stuff was from the 50s and 60s. There were some fascinating ideas of what may have taken place in the very distant past that were interesting, such as how sentient people came to be so - spirits entering bodies and becoming trapped there for example.And that ancient civilizations were technically advanced, perhaps more than we are. ...more

I expected more from this particular book. The readings on Atlantis were interesting but lacked detail. Overall, its worth reading, especially when comparing to other books on Atlantis.

I can hardly stop myself to talk about Cayce's readings non-stilted. I feel always hungry for any piece of information that comes out of his clear readings. It is interesting but not for entertaining.
So many serious questions are replied among the lines. I think It is still not impossible but too much for today science to explain the life and reasons of what went on those ages by their soul secrets.

This book has greatly nourished my interests in Atlantis and Edgar Cayce. I loved reading Cayce's passages about the Atlanteans' migrations to Egypt, South America, and North America.

I appreciated the author mentioning the archaeological discoveries based on Cayce's readings. There is so much left to be discovered than mainstream history offers. I certainly hope there will be more evidence of Atlantis in the distant future.

Obviously, I'm a strong believer of this mythical land lol!

We were never supposed to be physical beings- our material selves led to rampant materialism led to........the downfall of civilization. It happened once before and it will happen again.

Edgar Cayce on Atlantis spends far too much time trying to prove Atlantis existed, and far too little time on Edgar Cayce or his psychic readings.

Interesting ideas. Edgar Cayce had some eerie trance readings and this book puts them together into a surprisingly compelling argument for the existence of Atlantis.

The origins of life, in the metaphysical sense, began with the creation of the celestial beings. According to Edgar Cayce’s readings of the Akashic Record, first came the Son, the Logos, or the Word -- as indicated in John’s Gospel: “In the beginning was the Word; and the Word was with God and the Word was God.” Out of the Word or this central primordial expression of life, all else was created.
