While the story told by William Niven is extremely interesting, yet
the stories told by these old stone tablets are still more so. They
are the first spoken words to be understood by present man from
America's prehistoric past.
Immense cities built of
concrete and stone, beautiful pottery, gorgeous jewelry and
wonderful fresco paintings.
This tablet is the "Rosetta Stone" of all sciences in which movement is involved.
I consider it the most valuable tablet in the whole of Niven's collection of 2600.
The figure on the stone is a vignette, a symbolical figure of what has been known for a hundred thousand years as The Sacred Four.
writing gives their origin and workings. These Great Sacred Four
have been known by many, many names among the ancients. They have
always played a prominent part in Man's religious conceptions, and
They are the Four Great Primary Forces which emanate from The Creator.
This clearly shows that The Origin of Forces is
Creator himself. All other forces are subsidiary and dependent on
these four. Atoms generate forces; the movement of atoms depends on
The Great Four.
In English, Naga and Maya
As will be seen the above refers to the creation of man. The number 10 was the numeral of The Creator, and looked upon as being too sacred to be spoken.
The symbol Lahun was always used instead.
further avoid speaking the word ten the ancients divided their
counts into fives up to 20 thus - Ten would be twice five,
fifteen - three times five, and twenty - four times five.
It has always been a conjecture how woman came into the world. There are many legends relating to her advent but they are all symbolic.
They tell us nothing definite.
To the foregoing I will add another which I have found inscribed on Niven's Tablet No. 1584.
This one has the advantage of being purely American and hoary with age, being over 12,000 years old.
This tablet is the illustration of a passage in the Sacred Inspired Writings, coming directly after the completion of the 7th command (the creation of man).
This tablet explains the creation of the first pair - Adam and Eve of the Bible and the Chinese "one became two."
The first man created was with the dual principle.
Creator caused sleep (death) to come over him and while in this
sleep the two principles were separated and he awoke as two, one
having the male and the other the female principle. This was done
for the purpose of reproduction and the continuing of the race of
Did he there learn about first man, and
upon what he had learned did he write the funny tale about roly-polies for the benefit of the layman?
William Niven's Mexican stone tablet No. 150 tells how and through what source the earth was peopled.
The writing is in the ancient esoteric temple numeral alphabet, or script.
On this tablet it says:
"The Creator made one. This one became two (Fig. 1.)
This same legend with very few variations, and the variations in no way material, are found among the writings of all ancient people.
Niven's tablet No. 150 is more than 12,000 years old. Legends also
persist among all ancient writings that the original pair had white
skins. As the first pair of human beings had white skins, and all
mankind descended from them, it should follow that all human beings
today should have white skins, instead of which we find them from
milk white to jet black, with all shades of brown and yellow
What was the cause of ten different types developing from a single pair and both identically alike?
Naacal writings explain this phenomenon as follows, but whether I can translate them, so as to convey the original meanings in every minor detail is quite another thing. Words are used, and names given which apparently have died out, as I can find no counterpart of them in modern language; so that my translations may be, to some extent, inadequate, and again they may be absolutely correct in all details.
I will, however, give the translations as I made them many, many years ago. But before I do so, it must be appreciated that I am not speaking of present-day types and races, but those of the Earth's First Great Civilization, and which are referred to as being on Mu when she went down. In nearly all cases the races and types of man today would be unrecognizable with those that formed the Earth's First Great Civilization, or those who had left the Motherland as colonists.
I do not know where to go to find a pure descendant of
any one of the ten original tribes, except maybe on some of the
Pacific Islands, and since the Europeans and Americans found them
and carried to them their ideas of civilization as we now see it,
these "Children of the Sun" are rapidly dying out, or are so mixing
with these, to them, newcomers, that it becomes only a question of
time before all of the Polynesian races will be of a mixed blood and
The United States and Brazil are examples of one sort. Conquering and annexing countries with intermarriages following is another. The greatest cause of all for our present-day races and types was what followed the raising of the mountains. As the mountains were forced up from the bowels of the earth, most people in the area were destroyed, a few small communities and single families here and there went up with the mountains where plateaus and broad valleys were formed. Here they were marooned. Here they had to remain.
The country below was made impossible for habitation.
Some of these small companies survived in the mountains and multiplied. When they became so numerous that the mountain valleys could no longer sustain their ever increasing numbers they forced their way back to the lowlands which by this time had again become productive and habitable.
When first marooned in the mountains there were so few in a company, that close marriages, marriages of close relations, was the only possible way of surviving.
These close marriages formed a distinctive family type, and they became afterwards known as a distinctive race. The foregoing refers to present races and types, but does not tell how the original ten types came into existence. During their development there were no mountains on the face of the earth, so the mountains cannot be made the scapegoat for them. Without further theory, let us ask those wise old Naacals.
They'll tell us:
I feel that the foregoing translation could be improved upon, had I
a more profound knowledge of the ancient. I'm sorry to say it but
it's the best I can do.
The question as to how and why men have changed the color of their skins has always been a question and still remains a question.
Let us go back 25,000 or 30,000 years and see what the old Naacals thought about it:
As before stated, this is the best I can do to crack this hard old Naacal nut.
I may be right in all details and I may have missed some minor details, but in all essential details I feel I am about right. The foregoing is an extract from the Naacal writing - The Origin of Life and What Life is - one of the most wonderful writings I have ever read. A hundred thousand years and more had gone on developing and perfecting these types called tribes in Mu before her destruction came, so that, when she went down, many of these types and colors had become very distinct.
Shape of head, features and family
likeness and characteristics have, I think, been brought about,
principally, by inbreeding.
Anyone who has spent a few years among the South Sea
Islanders can tell on sight to what group they belong.
Mountains have not always formed a soft graceful sky line to the landscape; they are of recent origin.
Many records show that from 12,000 to 15,000 years ago mountains were unknown. As a matter of fact they were thrown up by the formation of the gas belts which now permeate the crust of the earth at depths of from a few miles down to about fifteen miles below the surface of the earth. They are the result of the planning out by the Great Creator for the ultimate construction of the earth.
With the forging of the gas belts, the areas of land and water were settled and the topography of the land. Before the gas belts were formed, wherever an old gas chamber was blown out the land above went down and was submerged. Gradually by degrees the earth was made habitable for man, and according to the natural laws of this creation, when the earth became habitable for man, he appeared.
From the beginning
it has always been that new conditions were constantly developing
and with the development suitable forms of life accompanied it.
During the Carbonic we find the same class of vegetation but of a slower and harder growth with reptilian life accompanying it. During the Jurassic time we find the reptilian life of a different class, suitable for harder ground, but still swamps. About the middle of the Cretaceous we find still harder vegetable growths with great changes. The old swamp growth was shown to be disappearing.
At the end of the Cretaceous the ground had become soft and marshy with hard ridges traversing it. At the commencement of the Tertiary this was also the class of ground, with a new form of life, mammals; the old reptilian life had died out with the destruction of the swamps. The earth was still unfit for man, being too damp, soft and miasmic. No mountains had yet appeared, and did not appear until after the last Magnetic Cataclysm.
Apparently about the end of the Miocene Period, the earth had become habitable for man, but as yet there were no mountains, but vast dry cultivatable plains. The temperature had dropped to a point where hard winters were experienced.
The Codex Cortesianus, an old Maya book, written about 5000 years ago from temple records, which are now in an underground cave in Yucatan, in speaking of the destruction of Mu, the Motherland of man, calls the country - "Mu - the land of earth hills" - rolling plains probably.
Mu was submerged about 12,000 years ago.
The Bible relates that the waters of the "Flood" rose 26 feet and covered the mountains. In Psalms there is a reference "before the mountains were raised." Many of the Central Asiatic tribes date their time from the raising of the Himalayas and mountains of Central Asia. The Zulus claim that they came to South Africa from the north, as their country in the north was ruined by the raising of the mountains.
Legends say that hundreds of millions
of lives were lost during the raising of the Asiatic mountains.
Geological phenomena throughout the world confirm the fact that
mountains are of recent origin. But the greatest exhibits of all
are: the Valley of Mexico and the Andes in South America.
The Valley of Mexico is now 7000 feet above the level of the ocean with high mountains enclosing it on all sides. When these civilizations were destroyed, the valley was only a few feet above the ocean's level. The last civilization to which I am referring was destroyed by a cataclysmic wave less than 12,000 years ago, as is shown on some of the writings of these people.
in the Valley of Mexico are the remains of extremely highly
civilized people of more than 50,000 years ago. Here and in Eastern
Asia are to be found the oldest remains of man on earth. Remains
that antedate by eons of time anything found in Babylonia, Egypt,
and Yucatan over which so much fuss is being made at the present
time. The old ruins are the remains of the First Great
Civilization - the Babylonian, Egyptian and Yucatan remains are but
the dying embers of that great civilization.
From the position of the stars on it (their way of registering the date) I am told by astronomers that this position would indicate an age of about 20,000 years. On page 81 is given a reproduction of it, with an outline of present-day South America. This map is an astounding revelation of the past.
I have known of its existence for more than 30 years, but have been unable to get a copy of it until recently.
THE CREATION OF WOMAN FROM MAN
A glyph consisting of a circle with two parallel lines drawn through the center, dividing it into three parts, as shown on Niven's tablet No. 2379, is a common and universal symbol.
It is found among the cliff-dwellers' writings of
Nevada. It is found in inscriptions on the Mexican Pyramid at
Teotihuacan and in Maya writings. It is to be seen on Inscription
Rock, Northeast Brazil, near the boundary of British Guiana, and in
various other ancient American carvings. It occurs in the ancient
writings of the Uighurs, Hindus, Babylonians and Egyptians.
This paragraph reads,
Thus this glyph refers to the Creation of Man and, by the ordinary
extension in ancient writings, covers producing, production, a
continuance from an original.
In Tao te King, a Chinese Book written about 100 years before the time of Confucius (500 B.C.) we find,
In deciphering and translating this glyph collected from many parts of the earth, I have invariably found that in the ancients' explanation of it three words persist in every translation: made or created, became and produced, thus; the Creator - created - man, Man - became two.
These two - produced - three. In
each case clearly showing and defining the form of the step in
progression and the difference in each step.
An Oriental legend relates that the reason for calling this glyph the mysterious writing was:
The above, Figures A, B and C, show my meaning.
The Creator created one. One became two. Two produced three.
58 is shown an example where this glyph is placed as a Keystone, Niven's tablet No. 1256.
An ancient glyph, which the ancients called "The Mysterious
Writing," is an esoteric temple numeral writing conveying the same
These two figures are written with the Naga form of numerals, sometimes they used circles, sometimes disks: this appears to have been optional according to the taste of the writer.
The Uighurs, generally, used a bar or line to express their numerals but quite often reverted to the Naga when inscribing the Mysterious Writing. At times, however, they expressed the Mysterious Writing with their popular form of glyphs. (Figs. 1, 2 and 3.)
these lines were drawn horizontally, sometimes vertically,
apparently dependent on the form of space available. (Figs. 4 and
Here is an example where we find a combination of the Naga and Uighur forms of numerals used in a single inscription. The Keystone (The Mysterious Writing) is the Naga form.
The lines are the Uighur form, also the Sun, the symbol of the Deity.
I will next show that the Hindu A U M is the same conception as the Mysterious Writing.
Out on a large prairie-like plain in Northeastern Brazil near the boundary of British Guiana stands an immense rock, having many smooth faces or areas. These smooth faces are literally covered with very ancient inscriptions which are written with the characters of the ancient Karas or Carians.
In the neighborhood it is called Inscription Rock.
The following is one of the inscriptions with its deciphering and translation:
One became two, two produced three, from these three life
was continued on.
Thus they made their
count two fives for ten, three fives for fifteen, and so on.
On this celebrated pyramid there are
many inscriptions. I have selected one in particular for this work.
First line one, two, three. Second line Mehen
- man is given; having
two bars, it says man with the dual principle. In the third line we
find one of the bars omitted leaving plain Mehen - Man.
Most of the
Tao te King is made up of
extracts from the Uighur copy of the Sacred Inspired Writings of Mu.
None have, however, arrived at any satisfactory meaning or conclusions; even the oldest are very indefinite, as examples:
Noruka is a Brahminitical version of the Vedas.
The Vedas were
the Naacal writings and changed by the Brahmins to
accomplish a diabolical end, and to foist the sublime thoughts on
the world as their own writings. The original Vedas are Naacal
writings. The Naacals acknowledge ONE Deity only; therefore, when
the Noruka mentions - EVERY - Deity, it means that there are more
Deities than one. This is clearly an alteration, a Brahminitical
change from the original writings.
The Mysterious Writing and the Mexican tablet are written in the old temple esoteric numeral writing, while the A U M is written in alphabetical Hieratic symbols, thus:
1. The female pronoun for she is evidently here used to avoid a
repetition of the letter M. M for Ma, Mu or the mother, and M for
Mehen the engendered.
thousands of years that have passed this theology, with now and then
new additions, was all that was learned and taught; and then
generally in Sanskrit, not Naga. With the lapse of time the reading
of the Sacred Writings was forgotten. The later priesthood were
incapable of comparing their present teachings with the original
That is all that is required.
The dissection and translation of this writing is given in The Lost Continent of Mu.
I am simply giving the legend in this work.
This Temple is dedicated to the Great Creator at whose command the Four Great Primary Forces emanating within Himself evolved law and order out of chaos throughout the universe and created all things.
This Temple is under the jurisdiction of Ra Mu,2
the Hieratic Head of our Motherland, Mu, and he is the mouthpiece of
the Great Creator.
Mu sank about 10,000 B.C., thus showing these tablets to be over 12,000 years old and that this great American civilization also dates back more than 12,000 years.
Many American civilizations had preceded this one as shown in Niven's first discovery 29 miles north of Mexico City.
These are only four typical tablets in Niven's collection referring
to the dual principle of the Creator. There are scores of others too
numerous to be shown in this work.
This is an interesting group of tablets from the fact that they show a form of communistic government as far as land and crops are concerned among these people of North America 12,000 years or more ago.
These are only four out of dozens of tablets in Niven's collection treating on the subject of crops and lands. From this group of tablets it would appear to be shown that all land was held by the government.
Certain of the people raised crops on it, which were divided according to requirements.
Similar writings are not at all rare and are to be found in all Oriental countries.
How far the communistic form of government went with these people, I cannot say. I find no mention of money of any description in any of Niven's 2600 tablets. These writings when put together say that after the crops are gathered in they are bulked and then divided. I find in certain of the tablets that a certain percentage went for the government and upkeep of the temples and a certain percentage for each person.
If after such a distribution, there remained a surplus, it was placed in a communistic granary and kept to cover any contingencies that might arise in the future, such as short crops, famine, etc. Then the accumulated surplus was drawn upon and given out to the people so that poverty and want were unknown among them.
A similar form of government was found to exist
among the Incas when they were first discovered. In some of the
small Oriental states it exists today.
The division going to the temples is called "The Holy One's Share." In Oriental writings I have found it referred to as "The Lord's Field."
In an Oriental tablet where the division in one-ninth, I have found the center square with the symbol of the Creator within it. In fact, it is quite common in the Orient.
These four tablets are typical of a group of over 100.
There is a group of 116 of these wonderful symbolic figures
in Niven's collection with no two identically alike. They are purely
conventional figures and were not in any way intended to represent
any form of life. They show the origin of the Primary Forces and how
Ten was a numeral never written, but the glyph Lahun was used in its place. Ten was not used because it was the numeral of the Creator and it was considered sacrilegious to use it, so a substitute was given in its place. Numeral writing continued to be used by the priesthood down to a very late date in man's history. It was used in Egypt down to 500 B.C. and probably still later.
When Pythagoras, the Greek philosopher, was in Egypt he was entrusted with the secrets of the Egyptian religion and taught the numeral writing.
Greek history tells us that on his return to Greece he taught his pupils,
All crosses down to and embodying the Maltese cross are symbols of the mystic Creative Forces - the four arms are the four forces.
On every figure in this group the line writing on the bodies of
these figures mentions the Creator as the Great Primary Force
governing all other forces. All of the Four Great Primary Forces are
shown as His commands.
The number of limbs
found on these figures varies from none to four. They mark the
movements of the forces in the universe.
The details of this I am reserving for another
work - The Cosmic Forces.
This group of tablets is, without question, one of the most unusual relics handed down to the present generation by those who have gone before us.
Among all ancient people certain birds were held sacred, with a great number of hazy legends connected with them from which nothing definite can be said. Among my researches in the Orient, I found only one bird referred to as being sacred - the goose.
On a stone carving I also found the children of Mu, when emigrating, pictured as geese swimming on the water. Another prominent example is the Egyptian god, Seb, whose headpiece is a goose. In the Book of the Dead, Seb is spoken of as the father of the gods, and as the goose that laid the egg out of which the earth and man were formed.
Seb has an important part assigned to him in the legend called "The destruction of mankind by Ra."
Altogether it is unquestionable that with the Egyptians Seb represented, as a symbol, the Creator.
Among some of the Alaskan Indians, the symbol of the Creator is a
In Ellis' Polynesian Research 3 he records a legend that fits in with the foregoing. Ellis says:
I have found many bird symbols among Niven's tablets. The writings
on them show them to be symbols of the Creator. From the various
data about bird symbols which I have collected, I am led to believe
that in one part of the Motherland a bird was selected to symbolize
the Creator instead of the usual adorned Serpent.
The Serpent was always the symbol of the waters. From the
beginning, Khan, the unadorned serpent, has been the only symbol.
Since space will not permit of my giving the decipherings of all, I have selected just one, No. 328.
The tableau on this tablet symbolizes the first of nature's lives which appeared in the waters.
Fig. 1. Khan, the unadorned Serpent.
The 5th Command in Creation:
Only one egg is shown in this tablet and that on the outside of the coils of the serpent, so that the serpent is shown as being in the act of laying the egg. Being the only egg, it is the first. Therefore, the first life to come forth in the waters and the first life to appear on earth.
In the Sacred Writings, the serpent is shown as having a nest of eggs within her coils, indicating that various forms of nature's lives appeared at the same time.
Below the serpent laying the egg comes the compound glyph.

This tablet alone is sufficient to show that these old Mexicans obtained their cosmogony from the Sacred Inspired Writings of Mu, the fountain head.

Each of these tablets shows action bv one or more of the Four Great Forces.
