That knowledge is disguised is no surprise either as this was common then. An associate has had wonderful success lopcating two thousand year old sciencevfrom China and let us not forget John Churchward's pronouncements on the nature of prehistory and Lemuria et al whose credibility improves with age.
As noted we now understand that the spirit operates our first tier bodies and we commincate through this. Yet the spirit is formed from dark matter and photons and is hugely more information dense.
This secret knowledge and it is not secret is underlying any spiritual aspects of all religions and related movements. It was well taught in Atlantean times and was derived from before 13,000 years ago or the time of the Pleistocene nonconformity. The problem we all face is ready access. After all the spirit world is right here among us and even working with us. Yet it is us who are blind..
The Religion With No Name
By Brian C. Muraresku
“The man of a traditional culture sees himself as real only to the extent that he ceases to be himself. Plato could be regarded as the outstanding philosopher of ‘primitive mentality’ – the thinker who succeeded in giving philosophic currency and validity to the modes of life and behavior of archaic humanity.”1
– Mircea Eliade

This head of Odysseus was discovered in 1957 on the west coast of Italy between Rome and Naples, on the grounds of the former villa of the Roman Emperor Tiberius at Sperlonga. The original sculpture likely dates to the 1st century BC.
“Homer says that all outward possessions must be deposited in this cave and that one must be stripped naked and take on the persona of a beggar and, having withered the body away and cast aside all that is superficial and turned away from the senses, take counsel with Athena, sitting with her beneath the roots of the olive, how he might cut away all the destructive passions of his soul.”10
[ i can go one step further. we now understand that this non physical world means just non first tier physical. It is second tier and it is profoundly physical and information dense as well - arclein ]

Prior to the celebration of the Eleusinian Mysteries in the Fall, the enigmatic Lenaia festival took place in January. Rosemarie Taylor-Perry theorizes that the purpose of this ceremony was to add herbs and psychotropic plants to fermenting wine which would later be imbibed during various rituals in the Greek religious calendar. Likely additives are thought to have included: "absinthe, belladonna berries, cannabis, datura flowers, mandrake root, [or] poppy sap or straw". The above shows an artist's rendering of a vase currently housed in the Louvre Museum in Paris, where women are clearly depicted adding some kind of herb, plant and/or fungus to the pithoi (storage containers) of sacred wine. source: "Lenäenvasen" by August Frickenhaus, Zum Winckelmannsfeste der Archäeologischen Gesellschaft Zu Berlin (1912), p. 12, available here
