Oliver, Frederick S (Phylos the Thibetan).: A Dweller in Two Planets. v1, 7 Feb 2008
A Dweller in Two Planets or The Dividing of the Way is a book by Frederick S. Oliver, completed in 1866, although it was not published until 1905, six years after Oliver's death.
The book is considered fantasy by many, concerning itself with the Atlantis, which it portrays as a culture which has reached a high level of technological and scientific advancement, including such things as antigravity and voice-operated typewriters.
In its introduction, Oliver claims that the book had been channeled through him by a spirit calling itself Phylos the Thibetan, who revealed the story to him over a period of three years, beginning in 1883.
The book is the source for many new age beliefs concerning Atlantis, especially those of the I AM movement and the Lemurian Fellowship.

I've been reading a lot of nineteenth century occult stuff lately. 'A Dweller on Two Planets' is an interesting artifact but hardly everything it is made out to be. If you read between the lines, it's more likely it was completed in 1899 rather than 1886, so the technology futurism isn't to the level of HG Wells.
There is a sociology PhD waiting for someone who really digs into Oliver and his writings.
Anyway, thanks for posting it!
