Knowledge, under the rule of the Golden serpent, was mostly to be found in the West, while Wisdom, an entirely different thing, was to be found under the rule of the golden Dragon in the East.
From Irish folklore
This quote is a good way to describe the difference between the Atls and the Lems. Actually all Atlanteans had highly developed psychic skills. Edgar Cayce describes them as a “thought people, those of an intuitive influence”. This description also applies to the Lemurians. Legends say the main achievement of the Atlantians & the Lemurians was developing the inner dimensions of the mind, but the Atls were more mental than the Lems. They entered into their minds but they tried to analyze & understand their spirituality.
In both Lemuria and Atlantis the priests developed tremendous mental discipline. I believe there were those who knew how to reach levels of awareness & dimensions that only a few are beginning to comprehend today.
Cayce tells us the Lems traveled to spread their knowledge. It’s believed the Tibetan spiritual tradition, & the Hawaiian Huna tradition both have their roots in Motherland of Mu. Traditions In New Zealand describe a fair race dwelling beneath the sea who were wise with abnormal powers. Throughout the Pacific, the submarine world was regarded as the home of occult knowledge.
