The Edgar Cayce Readings
Continent and Culture of Atlantis
Readings Extract - Places and Descriptions of Atlantis
(Q) Describe briefly one of the large cities of Atlantis at the
height of its commercial and material prosperity, giving name and
location. (A) This was called Poseida, or the city that was built
upon the hill that overlooked the waters of Parfa. In the vicinity
was the egress and entrance to the waters from which, through which,
many of the people passed in their association with, those of the
outside walls or countries. Poseida was not an altogether walled
city. A portion of it was built so that the waters of these rivers
became as the pools about which both sacrifice and sport, and those
necessities for the cleansing of body, home and all, were obtained.
These waters were brought by large ducts or canals into these
portions for preservation, and yet kept constantly in motion so that
it purified itself in its course; for, as we find, as is seen, water
in motion over stone or those various forces in the natural forces
purifies itself in twenty feet of space.

was in the height of its civilization. This entity then was in the
service of the country in its relation to other countries.

separated the islands or broke up the land into islands; and in the
city of Eden in Poseidia did the entity then dwell. The entity was
among the Atlan lands and peoples and of those that served in the
temple during the building of the temple to the One, the law of the
One, the understanding of the law of the One. Then the entity became
enamored with those of of the house of Baalilal, and faltered in the
experience; yet it was forgiven much through those sojournings in the
understandings of that given through Quoauda in the land.

in that land known as Poseida. In the city of Amaki did the entity
rule as the priestess to the fire worship and to the precious stones
that were gathered together during that sojourn. By some the entity

of the universal forces as may be applied in the way of mechanical
construction in a physical plane.

whether Poseidia was the land or Atlantis was the land.

second breaking up, when the islands - or Poseida - became the main
portion of the activities.

the one before this we find in that land now known, or has been
called, the Atlantean, and in the city of Sus [?] [Zeus?] did the
entity rule as a leader. Hence the mechanical turn of forces,
especially as will relate to those forces now termed the chemicals,
does the entity have PECULIAR interests.

developments came to those peoples during the earlier portion of
their sojourn in this land.

was in the Atlantean land, when there were those periods of the
oppressions by the sons of Belial and the children of the Law of One,
and those peoples in the lesser position or the laboring class. The
entity assisted its companion then to STAND FOR those that were being
the greater taxed, the greater oppressed, those that were being given
less and less privileges for the enjoyments of the associations of
their own families, the associations of the fruits of their own
labors. And the entity then made for those stands that became to
Ajax, to Asanain (?), to Alta, the principles for the preservation of
the records that were set by the entity then in its stand when even
destruction came for the material things of the land.
Conflict between Belial and Law of One
in the days when the first of the peoples came into that country of
the Jardines (Gadarenes?), when the Atlantean forces were in the
power and rule. The entity then in the form and manner of the peasant
to the peoples and gave of self in the development of the peoples
towards the agricultural intent of storing up foods for those who
were of the less fortunate of the peoples. The entity in this
developed much, for the first of brotherly love shown in the earth.

peoples who gained much understanding of the application of the
night-side of life, or of the negative influences in the earth's
spheres of those who gave much understanding in the manner of
transmission of sound, voice, picture, and such, to the peoples in
the period, using same to self's own destruction; for the entity
gained a high position during this experience, and in the Sacred City
of Peos the entity RULED with an UNLIMITED power; yet to self's and

Poseida, in the city called that of the Gate of Gold. The entity then
gained and lost through this experience. In this experience the
entity found MUCH that were of the forces as apply in that called the
night- side, or the negative side of life. The forces as being
positive and negative became to the entity, in the application in the
latter period, negative in their results.

the city then of Achaei [?] the entity ruled in pomp, power, and in
the understanding of the mysteries of the application of that often
termed the night side of life, or in the applying of the universal
forces as understood in that period. The ENTITY used them for aid.
Many of the subjects (and [this was] the overthrowing of the entity)
used them in the destructive influences. The entity ruled with the
will; NOT by firm hand, not by destructive influences, but rather as
one that would aid in counsel, aid in the understanding, aid in the
relationships of one to another.

forces, and was then in that of Aramus. In the one before, we find in
the early dawn when the forces showed the Sons coming to-gether for
the Glory of the earth's plane.
