ANCIENT WORLD - The name Hyperborea is ancient Greek in origin and means “beyond the North Wind”. Hyperborea is a legendary place, even ancient Greek writers determined different locations for it.
They did all say it was a paradise-like place, where the sun would shine 24 hours a day. It could not be reached by normal means of transportation.
According to the legend, Hyperborea is home to a superior race of beings that do not become sick and don’t die. The Greek god Apollo was thought to be on good terms with them and spend the winter
The Hyperboreans were described as giants that lived to become hundreds of years old. They had a well-organized, developed society and had talent for the arts as well.
In modern times, Hyperborea is often associated with the North Pole. Writers like Helena Blavatsky even assign a special significance to it, saying that all of mankind originates from polar Hyperborea.
This location and role seem unlikely at first. The North Pole landscape of snow and ice can hardly be called a paradise and no traces of advanced civilizations have been found there.
But there is another way of looking at this. What if ancient aliens, extraterrestrials that visited Earth in ancient times, never actually left? What if they still live hidden, inside the Earth? There seem to be openings at the poles, that could serve as entrances to their hidden, advanced world.
Then the ancient Greek legend suddenly makes good sense. And then we probably have seen signs of their presence already, or we can expect to see them some time soon.
