    AW: Thule=Hyperborea=Atlantis?

    I am very interested in this topic, too.
    What are those places exactly?

    Thule?
    Hyperborea?
    Atlantis?

    Are they the same?
    Do you think they exist?
    Are they myths of past cultures?

    Re: Thule=Hyperborea=Atlantis?

    Hyperborea was the seat of the old Aryan culture, situated on the North Pole (or close to it). The Hyperboreans were solar god-men, who lived with the gods. The capital of Hyperboreawas Thule, or Ultima Thule (Northmost Thule). After a natural disaster of epic proportions, and a shift of the world axis, Hyperborea became uninhabitable, and the Hyperboreans went southwards, some of them creating the settlement of Atlantis in the Atlantic Ocean, the rest of them travelling into the area of todays India (they were the forefathers of the Indo-European people).

    The settlement Atlantis was probably destroyed during another natural disaster. It is also said that it was destroyed by the gods because the Atlanteans started to intermix with inferior races.

    All I know about them was writen above. They no longer exists, not only because we don't find them anymore in the locations described, but also because all those legends have in common the destruction of them by a cataclismic event. They were like paradisiacal lands.

    Amazing...

    was just researching some things via a google search and i found this (and i am already a member here)

    To answer your question: Thule=Hyperborea=Atlantis?

    Thule and Hyperborea were the same, Atlantis was different.

    Hyperborea and Thule were both names attributed by the ancient Greeks and Romans to the Shetland archipelago.

    The name Thule itself derives from the Shetland Island called Foula, which in ancient times was called ''Thoula'' (the interchange of “f” and “th” was common). Ancient Mariners called the Shetlands “Tylensel” meaning the Isles of Thyle which would have included Foula.

    The earliest Greek maps also placed Thule in the Shetlands:



    - Eratosthene's map (194BC), he placed Thule in the North Sea - exactly where the Shetlands are today.

    Ancient writings (such as Pytheas, Strabo and Pliny the Elder) also placed Thule in the Shetlands, but i won't bother to quote them all here.

    As for Hyperborea ''the land beyond the north wind'', it was equated to Thule by the ancient Greeks and Romans (as seen on the map below, Thule lies in the ''Hyperborean Ocean'' or Hyperborevm).



    But Hyperborea/Thule were much more then just names for the Shetlands.

    A cataclysmic flood hit Hyperborea around 2000BC (as documented in many old norse and greek writings) and destroyed the Hyperborea civilization and so the Shetlands as they are today are just remnants of a once bigger Island.

    The archeological discovery of Jarlshof on the Shetlands and nearby Skara Brae on the Orkney's has proven that the ancient Hyperborean race were skilled in stonemasonry. The British Isles also gave birth to Megalithic culture and archeo-astronomy which then spread across Northern Europe.

    As for Atlantis, i have not as done much research on this. But from what i have studied on the Pillars of Herakles, they were not as most belief the Straits of Gibralter. Tacitus for example, in his Germania wrote the Pillars lied beyond Germany to the north. Atlantis according to Plato lied facing these pillars just beyond them. So Atlantis was clearly not off the coast of Spain but further north.

    It is important to remember that names like Thule have been transferred to other places. So just because one place may have been named that at one time does not mean that it was the original Thule.
