The assignment of the "Golden Age" to the Paleocene and Eocene epochs of the Paleogene (65,5-34 million years ago) and discussed in the paper "What did the rest of Earth look like?" geological arrangement of the continents in the Paleogene finds indirect confirmation in the Indian, Chinese and Mongolian traditions and occult teachings of Helena Blavatsky and Roerich.
According to Indian legends of Svetadvipa or The White Island, long ago when the continents looked very different, and the north pole was not located where it is now, on the site of today's Gobi Desert (Mongolia and North China) gardens bloomed around a land-locked inner sea. Central to this was the White Sea Island where there was a highly developed "Gobi" civilization "founded by a mysterious race of white people, Caucasian in appearance (with a long face, blue eyes and blond hair.)
Its founders came here after a catastrophic change in the world and before another disaster which some researchers have linked to the destruction of Atlantis. The "High Gobi Civilization" was established by the elite descendants of the “Immortals” and was a repository of the great knowledge left to them by their ancestors. This knowledge was contained in a "time capsule" in an artificial cave system on the “White Island”. Subsequently, the direct descendants of the "Sun Dynasty" became the progenitors of all people living in this era.
The Sun Dynasty (Sûrya-vanca = Suryavansha) was a semi-mythical Indian dynasty from which some modern Indian princely families claim to have their origin. The founder of the dynasty was Ikhshvaku (Ikhshw â ku), who reigned during the “fabulous times” (early in the second Yuga) in Ayodhya (in the "Ramayana," it is compared to Amaravati). One of Ikhshvaku’s son was Manu Vivasvat (whose father was the Sun – Vivasvat). Of the 100 children of Ikhshvaku, his son Vikuksi founded the sun dynasty of Ayodhya and another son Them founded the Sun dynasty of Mithila. The "Vishnu Purana" gives a list of rulers belonging to the two branches of the sun dynasty. The first of them (the branches of Ayodhya) belonged to the famous Indian hero Rama - the earthly incarnation of the god Vishnu (FA Brockhaus and Efron IA 1890 - 1916.).
According to Sergei Volkov, who gathered rich folklore material during his travels in Mongolia and China, the guardians of knowledge of White Island witnessed a destruction that completely changed the world and for a long time they remained in complete isolation and loneliness. During this time they were fighting for survival and the preservation of humanity on this planet. Over time, they were divided into two communities who have chosen different ways of further development. These communities established two different kingdoms: the kingdom of Shambhala above ground (the left-hand path - physical development, management elements and humanity) and the underground Agartha country (the way of the right hand - contemplation, spiritual development and non-interference in the affairs of mankind).
Information about White Island is scant. Most of the ancient Indian and Buddhist sources place it in the north, where there was a continent of Jambudvipa (Hyperborea). It is described as a mountainous country (Shweta) or island (Svetadvipa) located either north or south, either on the polar Mount Meru (Sumeru).
Here is a description of White Island in the "Mahabharata":
"In the North Sea, Milk
Radiant is Svetadvipa [White Island] ...
[It] ... wonderful people we saw
Marked all good signs, bright, shining like a month ...
This island ... - home of radiance ... ".
"Ramayana describes" Svetadvipa ":
"Here is the great White Island [Svetadvipa] near the Milky Ocean [Kshiroda], home to the great, the mighty men, beautiful, like moonlight. They are slender and broad-shouldered, and endowed with great physical and spiritual strength, and their voice is like thunder. "
"Srimad Bhagavatam" makes clear that the Shweta mountains are just north of the "King of mountains, Sumeru, supporting the planet Earth."
"Vishnu purana" places Svetadvipa to the south from Jambudvipa and says that «the sixth continent Svetadvipa are washed by Milky sea Kshira (or Dudha)».
According to the "Secret Doctrine" by Helena Blavatsky, the White Island was located in the middle of the vast North Sea, which once washed the mountains of Tibet, on the site of today's Gobi Desert. But, remember! In my previous article "Arctic Basin in the Paleogene," I have shown that in the Paleocene and Eocene epochs (65,5-34 million years ago), the Arctic Ocean continent of Hyperborea was bordered by the West Siberian Sea, the Straits of Turgay, the Tarim Sea (modern Takla Makan and Gobi deserts) and the Tethys. After the formation of Tibet in the middle Eocene (about 40 million years ago) North Sea reached the territory occupied by it, which was known in ancient Indian literature as Bharata-Varsa.
About 40 million years ago, Tibet was a hilly plain, covered with tropical forest. Bordered by the sea to the north, it was connected (then or earlier) to the Arctic Ocean and would be called in the Tibetan tradition the Milky of the North sea, and Tibet was not only Bharata-Varsa (India), but also Svetadvipa (according to the "Vishnu Purana").
Thus, there are different locations for Svetadvipa and White Island in ancient Indian and Buddhist literature and traditions and we also have the Theosophical location proposed by Blavatsky. But according to geological data, all of the major bodies of water in the Gobi desert disappeared 41-34 million years ago. And after the Eocene-Oligocene disaster (34 million years ago), when the formation of the "Gobi Civilization" probably occurred, there was no sea. So, the White Island was probably located somewhere farther to the north, where there is other historical evidence for the continent of Hyperborea (Jambudvipa). Keep in mind also that we do not know exactly whether the location of the North Pole was in the Paleogene compared with its present location.
White Island - "splinter" Hyperborea
If we assume that the formation of the "Gobi civilization" and the existence of the White Island corresponds to the period when Hyperborea (Jambudvipa) occupied the position shown on the map by G. Mercator, the Svetadvipa (or Shvepoy) could be one of the four islands located on it or the ridges located between the inner sea of Hyperborea and surrounding the Arctic Ocean. But, as I have shown in my article "Where was Hyperborea and what did it look like?", the Mercator configuration of the continent most likely existed only until the late Eocene - early Oligocene (40-34 million years ago) and it was changed beyond recognition after a global catastrophe in the late Eocene and Oligocene (34 million years ago).
In the Oligocene, most of Hyperborea was under water and only a few elevated areas were left which formed numerous islands. This means Svetadvipa could have been an island formed from a raised section of the mountain systems of Hyperborea (Jambudvipa), as described in the "Vishnu Purana", "Srimad Bhagavatam", "Yoga Sutra" and other ancient Indian sources.
Based on the above considerations, we can conclude that "the High Gobi Civilization", if it really existed, was founded on the remains of the continent of Hyperborea (Jambudvipa) in the northern polar region of Earth. The formation of this civilization dates back to the Oligocene epoch, and its founders came to White Island after the great catastrophe of the late Eocene and Oligocene (34 million years ago)
As the legends tell us, these survivors lived there until the next great catastrophe which occurred in the late Paleogene and Neogene period (24 million years ago), or possibly the one that happened later in the Early and Middle Miocene (15.9 million years ago). One of these disasters seems to be linked to the destruction of Atlantis and probably caused the destruction of the final remanants of Hyperborea. It is also possible Hyperborea and Atlantis were one and the same continent.
White Island - Mount Meru?
Let's take another look at a relief map of the Arctic seabed. If the White Island was formed in the late Eocene and Oligocene epoch (34 million years ago), it could be almost any elevated area along the ridges of Alpha-Mendeleev, Gakkel, Iceland-Yan Mayen or Mona. At these ridges are found many active volcanoes and hot springs, and the climate can be significantly warmer than the surrounding areas.
White Island in this case can be compared with the polar mountain known as the mythical center of the Earth, which in ancient Indian literature and tradition is called Meru (Sumeru). This mountain for centuries was considered the place of residence of the white gods - or Aditya Devas and a human-like suite of creatures consisting of the Gandharvas, Apsaras, Siddhas, Vidyadharas and Charanas.
