Rudolf Steiner: "Only when the atmosphere became freed from the fogs and mists of Atlantis could the Sun appear to man in its present form. This process accompanied the narrowing of man' s being, so that he became confined within his own self, within his ego. For reasons which have a profound meaning, spiritual wisdom defines the light flooding through space as the etheric gold, and gold is looked upon as the condensed light of the Sun. The ancient Atlanteans were taught by their teachers that there is a connection between the light of the Sun and gold, and they took in the following image: 'The light of the Sun, the gold of the Sun, shines forth! It envelops us with a ring which frees the ego, bringing about the fact that we no longer experience ourselves selflessly as a part of Nature.' Among the Atlanteans the ego was still dispersed within clouds of mist, but now it began to enfold him like a ring."
