DREAMS OF ATLANTIS
The memology posits imaginary existence of a Atlantis (its seeding of cultures, mysterious submergence, and possibility to rise again) as a powerful phantom of what has been missing in patriarchal cultures and their now near-global domination for five millennia. Indeed, the name Atlantis was first used Plato in his symposia to demonstrate the superiority of a mythic ancient Athenians. Yet the concept probably would not have had currency had not the vague memory of the impressive Minoan civilization persisted for centuries after its demise. Minoan art, artefacts, and myths remained from this most technologically advanced pre-patriarchal, though they were often subordinating to the succeeding, patriarchal Greek culture.
