Hyperborea, a mysterious country at the North Pole, is spoken not only by ancient Greek myths, but also by ancient historical tradition, including Homer, Hesiod, Damastus, Herodotus, Aristotle, Hecateus of Abder, Diodorus Sicily, Pliny the Elder, Porfiry, Iamblichus and others. This country was located far beyond the Riphean Mountains, where the god of the north wind Boreas lived. Behind these mountains lives a happy people – Hyperboreans. There are no cold or sultry winds, and the land gives abundant fruits.

By Danelis

It was in Hyperborea that Latona (Leto) was born, who gave birth to Apollo and Artemis on the island of Delos. Apollo, before his establishment in Delphi, lived among the Hyperboreans and later returned there periodically. According to Pausanias, the famous temple of Apollo in Delphi was founded by the Hyperborean priests. In the time of Herodotus, the graves of two Hyperboreans, Arga and Opida, who accompanied the goddess Leto when she arrived on the island, were venerated on Delos. Among the persons who participated in the annual embassies, history mentions two other girls – Hyperochus and Laodike. These Hyperboreics also died on Delos; Herodotus himself saw their graves. In the 1920s. French archaeologists discovered the remains of the masonry of the tombs of the “Hyperborean virgins” on Delos, thus confirming the message of Herodotus.

With the end of the ancient world, interest in the “blissful” northern country also faded. Only at the end of the XIX – beginning of the XX century. mankind again turned its gaze to the pole. One of such scientific sensations was the books of the American scientist W. F. Warren “The Found Paradise, or the Cradle of Humanity at the North Pole” (Boston, 1893), the Indian scientist BG Tilak “The Arctic Homeland in the Vedas” (Bombay, 1903) and other researchers. In these works it was proved that the ancestors of the Indians in ancient times lived in the Arctic Circle. The ancient Indian epics “Rigveda”, “Mahabharata”, “Ramayana”, “Puranas” spoke about this.

The Indians called this place “the land where bliss is eaten.” There live “fragrant … brave men, removed from all evil … wonderful in appearance; full of vitality; strong, like a diamond, their bones … “. After the cataclysms changed the climate in the Arctic homeland, the Indians left for the Indian subcontinent. Similar information about the northern ancestral home was found in the sacred texts of the ancient Persians “Avesta”.

It is there, at the foot of the “immeasurably high” Mount Meru, that the Sea of \u200b\u200bMilk splashes, in the northern part of which is the large island of Shvetadvipa (White Island). It was here that Brahma strengthened the Dhruva (Polaris), around which the Seven Rishis (the seven stars of the Big Dipper) move, the constellations Cassiopeia and Bootes. At night, which lasts six months there, the Moon and the stars dance in a round dance around Dhruva, and during the day, which also lasts six months, the Sun goes around Meru in circles.

The Indians called this place “the land where bliss is eaten.” There live “fragrant … brave men, removed from all evil … wonderful in appearance; full of vitality; strong, like a diamond, their bones … “. After the cataclysms changed the climate in the Arctic homeland, the Indians left for the Indian subcontinent. Similar information about the northern ancestral home was found in the sacred texts of the ancient Persians “Avesta”. Only there the mountain is not called Meru, but the High Hara. Around the mountain is the wonderful country of Aryavarta or Ayriyayna Veyo – the Aryan Seed, where “people, plants and animals are the most beautiful, where there are no diseases and misfortunes, and people live a wonderful life.”

Until now, preserved geographical maps of the XV-XVI centuries: Ptolemy (published in Rome in 1490), G. Mercator (1538, 1569, 1595), A. Florian (1590), which not only accurately show the islands of the legendary Hyperboreans, but also suggest completely different outlines of the coastline of Northern Europe, North America and Russia. On the Mercator map from 1538 there is an image of two splits of the once single continent, and if you superimpose it on a tectonic map of the Arctic with the involvement of geomorphological data of the Soviet oceanographer, doctor of geographical sciences, professor, long-term head of the geography department of the Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute Ya J. Gakkel (1901-1965), then it will show that these faults were formed taking into account the drift of continents about 300 million years ago and pass, respectively, along the northwestern slope of the Canadian and northern slopes of the Baltic shields. On a later map (1569), if the “Scandinavian” part of the Merkatorian Hyperborea is superimposed on the map of modern Scandinavia, then the mountain range along Norway and the Kola Peninsula coincides with the mountains of Hyperborea; The Hyperborean river that flows from these mountains follows the outlines of the Gulf of Bothnia. The southern border of the legendary mainland then passes through Ladoga and Onega lakes, through Valaam and Vygortia, turning to the north – to the spur of the middle ridge of the Kola Peninsula.

The Russian poet Nikolai Klyuev, in his Song of the Great Mother, describes the underwater Diamond City – the spiritual center of the Russian Old Believers, where the hermit fathers went to the “ice cities”. Alexander Blok in the play “Dionysus Hyperborean” tells about the symbolic ascent to the snowy mountains in the North in search of God.

One of the first to write about Hyperborea was an Icelandic alchemist of the 16th century. Arne Sacknussen. They were given a fairly accurate map of this country and, oddly enough, indicated the way there. Saknussen and many of his students were supporters of such a science as hermetic geography, or magical geography. He regards the North, Nord, as a magical point from which lines like the feathers of a fan radiate. The star Arcturus, or the North Star, as Sacknussen writes, is that focus, that universal life constant that keeps this fan on itself. The feathers of such a fan diverge to the South and into the Night. This is one of the initial schemes of the hermetic worldview of the world he perceives.

In the first half of the XIX century. the most convincing reconstruction of Hyperborea was carried out by the German scientist Hermann Wirth. He believed that “original” people came from the Far North, who founded a “pro-religion” in which cosmological dualism and metaphysical monotheism were combined. When the Arctic paleocontinent sank into the ocean, the inhabitants of the Arctic migrated from north to south, to Eurasia, and from there settled all over the world. Herman Wirth believed that it was Atlantis who became the heir to the mighty knowledge of Hyperborea.

The Russian poet Nikolai Klyuev, in his Song of the Great Mother, describes the underwater Diamond City – the spiritual center of the Russian Old Believers, where the hermit fathers went to the “ice cities”. Alexander Blok in the play “Dionysus Hyperborean” tells about the symbolic ascent to the snowy mountains in the North in search of God. The rich folklore tradition, legends, legends, legends of many peoples of Europe and Asia speak of the northern Aryan ancestral home, where the golden age reigned.

Since 1986, the Marine Arctic Complex Expedition has been actively involved in systematic studies of the Russian Arctic. She carefully studies the sacred places on the northern islands. On Novaya Zemlya, Franz Josef Land, Vaigach and Kolguev islands, Stone Age tools were discovered. On Novaya Zemlya, for example, stone labyrinths have been discovered, as in Solovki or in Scandinavia, but no one has ever built them so far in the northeast. A seven-faced figure of a Nenets deity of a cruciform shape was found near the island of Vaygach

In 1995, under the auspices of the Russian Geographical Society, the Integrated Northern Search Expedition (KSPE) was formed under the leadership of a full member of the Russian Geographical Society, Sergei Golubev. First of all, the members of the expedition decided to explore the White Sea islands (including the Solovetsky archipelago), the Khibiny tundra (mountains) – the highest place on the Kola Peninsula. Translated from the ancient Samoyed Ugric dialects, the name of the Khibiny means Sacred, Divine.

The scientific director of the Russian Research Institute of Cultural and Natural Heritage Pyotr Boyarsky is developing a hypothesis for the so-called “Grumantsky Bridge”. This is a vast strip of Arctic land that connected Eurasia with America about 20 thousand years ago: through the present Vaygach, Novaya Zemlya, Franz Josef Land, Svalbard and Greenland. Recent studies by geologists, glaciologists and other specialists allow us to conclude that the glaciation of these lands was not continuous, which means that people could live there and a high culture could develop autonomously.

Searches in the field of the sacred geography of the northern part of Eurasia (including Russia) give rise to a sense of the nonrandomness of all these landscape landmarks, which clearly “lead” somewhere in a certain direction. We are dealing here with an artificial change in the landscape almost throughout the entire territory of the Earth, which, in turn, was carried out by the ancient human races of the Hyperboreans, Lemurians and Atlanteans.

According to the Russian researcher Yevgeny Lazarev, many natural gorges, mountains, seids, fiords in Finno-Scandia – a geologically unchanged fragment of ancient land – indicate some special points of the no longer existing primary polar continent. Tradition calls these arctic lands Hyperborea. The most ancient paths, sacred roads, which were laid in time immemorial by the first colonists from Hyperborea and Atlantis from the north and northwest, who poured into the Eurasian continent, can also be attributed to these objects. Perhaps such is the road that crosses the valley of the Luvenga River and leads to Mount Akatevskaya. When you go to it from Kandalaksha, almost exactly to the east, leaving behind the Kandalaksha labyrinth, the mountain rises in front, and you can clearly see the gorge cutting through its top like a giant vizier. The road is oriented towards him …

The mouth of the Luvenga remains on the right; next to it is a small part of the White Sea, bounded by picturesque islets and called the Indian Sea. Some scholars associate this name with the name of Mount Akatevskaya (“akk” in Sami “grandmother”) and suggest that these place names are related to the ancient cult of the Great Goddess-Progenitor. On the mountain, you can find a seid long destroyed by time, almost imperceptible to the eye. Apparently, the ancient Laplanders associated this mountain with the image of the Goddess-Progenitor, that the mountain is marked with a gorge – a symbolic likeness of the divine womb. The mountain and gorge are oriented exactly to the east (azimuth 110 °). In the European North (Vaygach Island), the veneration of a high rock with a vertical crevice is witnessed precisely as the Mother-idol. The same sacred meaning can be attributed to the Elmorayok gorge leading to the sacred Seydozero, it cuts through the wall of the Lovozero mountains from the north-west. It is noteworthy that in the orientation of some seids of the Lovozero Mountains, a mysterious shift of 30 ° relative to the cardinal points is traced. But the Elmorayok gorge (azimuth 330 °) also “deviates” from the north by 30 °!

It is not excluded, writes Lazarev, that this direction has an independent meaning in a more “global” sacred geography. Searches in the field of the sacred geography of the northern part of Eurasia (including Russia) give rise to a sense of the nonrandomness of all these landscape landmarks, which clearly “lead” somewhere in a certain direction. We are dealing here with an artificial change in the landscape almost throughout the entire territory of the Earth, which, in turn, was carried out by the ancient human races of the Hyperboreans, Lemurians and Atlanteans. If we continue all these lines, they will lead not directly to the North Pole, but somewhere (not yet definitively) in the Arctic Ocean. Perhaps, to the invisible corner towers of that Diamond City, which the poet Nikolai Klyuev announced by the “dedicated from the people” in the “Song of the Great Mother”? In this city, according to Song, the persecuted “righteous of the Russian Land” went “along the pearl path” – to their “holy brothers” …

And if it is permissible to supplement this sublime poetry with arithmetic, then let’s say that there will be 72 towers in the Diamond City (the angular distance – in longitude – between the landmarks of Valaam, Zaonezhye and Lapland, if we bring them to some single latitude, gives a step of about 5 degrees; 360 °: 5 ° \u003d 72 °). Seventy-two chapels, according to European legends, have an invisible temple of the Grail. A wonderful, radiant (primordial in every tradition) temple, where noble knights and pure virgins keep the Holy Grail … According to legend, it was a tall, round building in terms of the structure, with 72 side-chapels. It is noteworthy that the embroidered folk Russian calendar-map of the sacred geography of Ancient Rus had, in essence, the same structure as the temple of the Grail. There are ancient traditions that mention 72 dynasties of antediluvian “solar origin” (Iran), 72 “serpent kings” (rulers of Punta in Egyptian legends). It can be assumed that the number 72 is nothing more than the actual number of dynasties that ruled Atlantis before the natural disaster (F. Joseph). From the side-altar of the temple, 72 dynasties of colonists spread out like a fan to other lands in order to carry a civilizing mission.

An interesting message is given by A. Voronin in his book “Sea Colonies of Atlantis” about the Atlantic Diamond City, the legends about which were preserved among the Indians of Central America. Alejandro Serio Perez, a Guatemalan, descendant of the Mayan priests, is the elder of the Americas. This was proclaimed by two All American Congresses. The cities built in Yucatan, says Perez, were built by the Mayan ancestors who came from Bermuda (from the now underwater Bermuda Upland). And this word at first sounded – “May”. May is the Atlanteans. Initially, they lived in the Diamond City in Bermuda and from there they came to Tollan. The most important city is Diamond, in Bermuda, with a pyramid under water. Some researchers have written about some mysterious pyramidal structures at the bottom of the North Atlantic: from the Caribbean Sea to the Bermuda and Azores archipelagos. They believe that the North Atlantic pyramids were part of a huge energy complex once built by the Atlanteans. This again indicates the existence of those secondary Atlantic sacral centers in relation to the primary Hyperborean (according to Guénon).

According to the ancient Indian epic “Ramayana”, the homeland of their ancestors was beyond the Arctic Circle, and 18 million years ago there was a great civilization on the Oriana continent. The capital of the united empires was called Arka, and it was located just under the North Star, that is, on the site of the present Arctic. According to ancient Vedic texts, the first person was called Oriy. From here comes not only the name of the continent, but also the name of the most ancient race – the Aryans. The residence of the ruler Oriana was in the city of Arka, which lies at the foot of the huge Mount Meru. The temple of the One God towered on the mountain, where thousands of believers flocked.

And here is how the authors of the collection “Hyperborean Faith of the Rus” (1999) describe the Hyperborean capital: “The capital of Hyperborea was located directly near the point of the geographic radius of the Earth’s pole. The city was called Pola (Peace) … Pola was not a city in the modern sense of the word. It was a single system of 24 small and large castles along the shores of the inner sea of \u200b\u200bArctida – the Great Rotating Lake. The walls, planned in accordance with the magical laws, did not contrast with the surrounding nature. It was not immediately possible to notice the powerful towers covered with sparse carvings in the middle of the snow-capped rocks … “

Lazarev tells how the expedition found the “elven stronghold” on Mount Seida. The mountain itself, a long ridge stretching from west to east, was called the Kola Sami “Sacred”. It was here, in the southern environs of Umbozero, separating the Khibiny and Lovozero mountains, that one of the routes of the “Hyperborea-99” expedition was laid. Seid in the Sami language is first of all a sacred stone or a collectively transmitted “figure” made of stones. In the first instant, it is very difficult to identify artificial structures in the mountain range. The fortress (or castle) is formed by several rocky ridges and stretches from west to east, like the whole mountain; however, these ridges are too similar to thick, tapering walls. And – an unusual detail – the outer ridge-walls of the “fortress” really have the appearance of walls: they rise two meters above the “fortress floor”. But inside it, exactly the same rocky ridges seem to be leveled – horizontal platforms up to one and a half meters wide run along their top. Perhaps it was this castle that was considered a seid on Mount Seyda. Moreover, in terms of its structure, it is a real castle-temple: a solemn, wide gallery leads to its central, highest citadel from the east – a kind of propylaea formed by two similarly inclined walls up to two meters high that have grown into the ground. It is through this gallery that a barely noticeable path now passes – and in the North, paths are often “reproduced” from millennium to millennium. From the west to the “citadel” adjoins, as it were, a “vestibule” – also surrounded by walls, but lower, and the “floor” here is located lower than in the “citadel”. Here it is appropriate to recall the words of an elf from Tolkien’s book “The Lord of the Rings”: “The towers of our strongholds still look at the world, but people consider them to be rocks.” This once again reminds us of an esoteric thought: the earthly world is multidimensional, many sacred structures of the Great Old Ones are planned at the level of the fourth dimension and are not visible now, and at the level of the third we can consider them, since the former have their counterparts.

The root “seid” (“sid”, “set”), writes Lazarev further, is very ancient, it goes back to the Paleolithic, Borean northern proto-language. Is this not where the names of those primary, antediluvian priestly schools and clans come from: Seth, Seth, etc.? In Celtic myths, the Sids are elves who have now gone to another, magical world through gates invisible to people in the hills and mountains. Maybe the two pillars of Seth, already described by us, are that distant memory at the junction of the Lemurian and Atlantic stories of their northern (Arctic) origins?

Researchers of ancient legends and myths mention one mysterious world called Hyperborea. There is also information that this country was sometimes called Arctida. Many have tried to find its possible location, but so far its existence has not been proven and has not been confirmed by anything other than myths. What is Hyperborea? This is a hypothetical ancient continent or a huge island that previously existed in the northern part of the planet near the North Pole. In those days, Hyperborea was inhabited by a very powerful people – the Hyperboreans, who had a fairly developed civilization. Considering what Hyperborea is, it should be noted that its name means “behind the north wind Boreas”. Some researchers believe that this is the notorious Atlantis.
