Atlantis and Green Wizards
During the TAR cycle, JMG mentioned times that the story of Atlantis was an alternative to the Myth of Progress. And after hearing him talk about Atlantis in an older podcast, I checked out him book Atlantis: Ancient Legacy, Hidden Prophecy. (2007) In it he says the myth of Atlantis got reworked by occultists in the lat 19th-early 20th centuries, and the idea of "seedbearers" was added: priests who were sent out to preserve Atlantean knowledge for later ages.
So this is on his mind 3-4 years before Merlin and the Green Wizards popped up on our screens. Anybody got any feelings along this line?
