Humanity took the path in opposition to the Path of Return. This created patterns which still shape the energy, force and substance of the instrument, individually and collectively, and into which humanity incarnates and has incarnated since that period over 100,000 years ago.
A period when all human beings were conscious magicians according to Plan. When humanity for an inexplicable reason (except that it be karmic) denied the Logoic Plan for one of its own. That is, men conceived and created according to their own separative purposes. In so doing, the economy of the Planetary Life was misused, the relationship of Spirit, matter, and consciousness altered and the antahkarana between man and his own Soul broken. The outer results of this act came in the form of a cataclysm which wiped out the Atlantean civilization.
