The word Hyperboreans comes from ancient Greek and means “beyond the North Wind or the North Pole“.
The mysterious northern country from ancient Greek mythology, the second Atlantis, which is mentioned in many legends and tales. The history of Hyperborea is directly related to the idea of the past Golden Age of mankind – the time of immortal heroes, sorcerers and wizards.
The name of this Arctic continent comes from the name of the ancient Greek god of the north wind, Borea. Evidence of the existence of Hyperborea is already found in the ancient treatises of Hesiod, however, ancient historians described the origin of the northern people in different ways: either they were descendants of mythological titans, or the heirs of the legendary Athenian king Hyperborea. However, an undoubted fact from the life of the Hyperboreans, according to all authors, was the patronage of the god Apollo.
The god of art often went to his beloved northern country, arriving there in a chariot driven by swans. In Hyperborea, Apollo preferred to spend time until he returned to Delphi, the birthplace of the famous Oracle. Apollo awarded his hyperborean favorites with extraordinary talents and abilities in art: their pastime actually consisted of dancing and merrymaking, in the incessant chanting of Apollo.
Some authors point out that in the course of their hectic life, Hyperboreans managed to get so fed up with pleasures that they saw their death as a deliverance from constant sybarism. Probably, the everyday lifestyle of the Hyperboreans was completely subordinated to the service of the cult of Apollo. One of the most famous representatives of this mysterious people was the soothsayer and priest Abaris.
In general, Hyperborea seemed to the ancient Greeks a fairy-tale, utopian country – this view was inherited by subsequent seekers and admirers of Hyperborea. So, the ancient Roman historian Pliny wrote that “the luminary there rises only once a year during the summer solstice, and sets only during the winter. This country is all in the sun, with a favorable climate and devoid of any harmful wind. The homes for these residents are groves, forests; the cult of the gods deals with individuals and all societies; strife and all manner of disease are unknown there. ”
The search for the mysterious country of Hyperborea was actively interested in scientists and geographers, starting in the early New Age. So, the famous Franciscan geographer Sebastian Munster and the Flemish cartographer Gerard Mercator wrote about the existence of Hyperborea.
These lands, in Herodotus’ view, were practically the edge of the earth. Next – only the one-eyed giants and huge griffins that guarded the myriad gold reserves.
In this fabulous kingdom of eternal spring, the sun shone 24 hours a day, but it was practically impossible to get there because this region was protected by huge transparent ice walls.
Nor could it be accessed by conventional means of transport, since this enigmatic “paradise” was guarded by powerful races of demigods called Hyperboreans.
This civilization has been described in many cultures as very tall beings, with blue, blond eyes and very white skin, having a very well developed and organized society.
One of their many talents is the arts, as well as science. Its inhabitants live in a state of permanent light and love, in fact, it is a race that has always lived free from war.
Here the concept of work used to be second to none. Its genetics do not know old age or disease. They are highly psychic beings.
Another part of Greek history connects the Hyperboreans with the foundation of several important religious sanctuaries in ancient Greece, and it is also said in their writings that the planet is connected by tunnels all over the interior of our planet.
Different cultures from all over the world agree in their ancient writings that all humanity has its origin from the Hyperboreans.
This ancient breed has the same origin as the Atlantean and Lemurian, of extraterrestrial origin. It is said that even today a part of this civilization remains hidden inside the planet.
Scientists have confirmed that there are openings in the poles and that they might be serving as entrances to a hidden world, and given this theory, the ancient Greek legend would make sense.
Some researchers say that the Hyperboreans lived together with other races such as the Atlanteans and Lemurians for a while, being their most intense relationship with the Atlanteans and they exchanged part of their science and astronomy.
Hyperboreans and their existence
In the first place, it must be remembered that this region, as well as the two “lost” continents, have not ceased to exist even though they were submerged to the bottom of the oceans
And there is already speculation about the possibility that at some point in the history of mankind these continents may re-emerge to the surface.
On the other hand, not all Hyperboreans disappeared in the great catastrophe, a part of their society was safe from the impending destruction of their civilization.
This happened before the two continents -Lemuria and Atlantida- and the Hyperboreal region were swallowed by the waters by a change in the position of the Earth’s axis.
For a while, they prepared their emigration to the interior of the planet, one of those places is Mount Shasta in California.
And another part of these descendants, over time, in the course of our history of mankind came to the surface and adapted to different parts of the world migrating to more southern lands.
And mixing with other ethnic groups and inhabitants of different regions of the planet, such as Iceland and Europe, as well as Himalayan lands, or the American continent, contributing knowledge in mathematics, astronomy, etc.
An ancient Tibetan tradition says that:
“The White Island (Hyperborea) is the only place that escaped the general destiny of all the continents after the catastrophe. It cannot be destroyed by water or fire since it is the Eternal Earth. ”
