"The great inventors of our race are incarnations of ‘seers’ of the Atlantean race.
In their brilliant ideas is something which has as a different basis, something that was in them during their Atlantean incarnation as life-giving force. Our logic, knowledge of nature, art and so on have their foundation in Atlantis “ (Rudolf Steiner)

“The Atlanteans had devices which they heated with plant seeds, and in it life force was transformed into technically utilizable power.
In this way the vehicles of the Atlanteans were moved, hovering at low altitude above the ground.
These vehicles drove at a level that was lower than the height of the mountains of the Atlantean period, and they had control devices, through which they were able to rise above these mountains.“ (Rudolf Steiner)
