Atlantis – The Disappearing Homeland



Thunderbolts Project

In the case of the Atlantis myth, what can be substantiated is the archetype, and that archetype reaches far beyond any local legend. The archetype reflected in the Atlantis myth is the story of a far-famed city, island, kingdom, or continent in primeval times—either forgotten or subsequently destroyed by water or fire or, like Atlantis, sinking into the abyss. But the challenge for us is that no archetype has ever been plausibly connected to a terrestrial event. From the beginning, we’ve found that the source of the archetypes lies in events occurring in the ancient sky but subsequently brought down to earth through localized storytelling.
