WHEN the Motherland started out to people the earth, North America and Eastern Asia were the two lands where she planted her first colonies, so that here, in our own home, we may look for the earliest records of man - not in Europe, Egypt or Babylonia. They were the tail-enders. Going to these countries to find the early records of man is like a shepherd going everywhere to find a lost lamb while he is carrying it under his arm all the time.

Let us commence by mentally carrying ourselves back to the time when the first foot of man trod American soil, and reconstruct a probable scene.


We assume, basing our assumption on modern history, that Mu expanded while her civilization was in its early stages. We, therefore, picture to ourselves an ancient craft leaving the shores of Mu, the Motherland, manned by a crew of stalwart, young adventurers with milk-white skins, blue eyes and light, flaxen hair. When their craft was fairly launched upon the Eastern Sea, they pointed its prow towards the rising sun.


A hundred thousand years or more, after man first appeared on Mu, found him so increased in numbers that the area of available land of the Motherland became insufficient to sustain the ever growing population. So these young men had started out to find other lands, if they existed anywhere on this globe.1

1 The time I have given as the time man had been on earth may appear long but it is taken from two tablets written by the Naacals, which state that about the time Mu went down man had been on earth 200,000 years. There are many Oriental legends Mating the name thing.

They were called Quetzals in the Motherland on account of their making the venomous serpent Quetzacoatl their symbol for the Creator and creation.2


At the end of a moon's journey,3 as the rays of the morning sun were lighting up the horizon ahead, the crew saw ahead of their craft a long line of surf breaking on a low, sandy shore, with a low, rolling country beyond.



2. I have found in ancient records that in various parts of the Motherland, the tribes or people were called after the name of their symbol for the Creator and creation. The Nagas are another noted example.

3. In so far as I have been able to find out, the ancients kept track of time by the itars. Dates in this book, whenever given, are based upon astronomical charts found engraved in ancient writings.



On nearing the surf, they turned the prow of their craft and skirted the shore line until they came to a stretch of less turbulent Water.


This they crossed and found themselves at the mouth of a river. They proceeded inland until they came to a suitable landing place where they drew their boat up on the bank and made camp. From the camp they explored the surrounding country, finding it unoccupied by man and eminently adapted for a settlement. They then returned to the Motherland with the good news.

The country which they discovered was America, as we call it today, and the particular spot in North America where they landed was Mexico as we now know it. This was more than 50,000 years ago, and it might have been tens of thousands of years before that.

After the arrival home of the explorers, expeditions were formed and a regular colonization of this new land set in. Soon it became a large and thriving colony. Other tribes settled to the north while the original colony spread to the south, eventually settling in Yucatan and Central America.


What is now Guatemala is where they built their capital city and elected a king.



There is no spot on earth that has a greater attraction and fascination for the lovers of the ancient than the Valley of Mexico.


A series of tragedies has followed man in this valley, starting from the very beginning of his appearance in America. Take the first settlers. After many years of successful development, extension and expansion, and after building great cities and imposing temples, a huge cataclysmic wave from the ocean rolled in over the land, leveling the cities and temples and blotting out all human life.


When the waters finally subsided they left behind a stratum of boulders, gravel and sand which blanketed the whole country, burying the remains of the cities and temples. The remains of this, their first great city, lie 29 miles north of Mexico City. 4

Four known settlements followed the original in the Valley of Mexico and each was wiped out by cataclysmic waves. The last one left behind indestructible writings on stone. Twenty-six hundred of their tablets have been found by Niven. They are not of the settlement previously mentioned. Some of these will be shown in my next chapter with their decipherings.

A short account of how this civilization was wiped out gives one of the most interesting and one of the most valuable little geological tales ever told.

A gas chamber,5 which had been underlying the Valley of Mexico blew out: the roof collapsed and crashed to the floor of the chamber, carrying with it all life thereon.



4 See The Lost Continent of Mu, page 206.
5 See The Lost Continent of Mu, page 252



The waters from the ocean rolled in and filled up the abyss caused by the land sinking. This submerged the Valley of Mexico.


The submersion was accompanied by terrific volcanic workings. Earthquakes followed one another in quick succession. The land opened and volcanoes burst forth, vomiting fire, smoke and rivers of lava, which spread out over the country, carrying death and destruction in their wake.


Some of these ancient craters with their lava flows still remain. A noted one is called Xitli: its lava flow extends about 25 miles and ends on the very edge of Mexico City. The flow is about 25 feet thick, showing the enormous ejection.

I have not sufficient data to give the date of this submersion. An Egyptian temple record refers to a submersion of land in Central America about 16,000 years ago. This may be the one referred to or it may not. An Aztec tradition, sent to me by Niven a short time since, supports the temple record.


The legend runs as follows:

"At the time of the conquest of Mexico by Cortez (A.D. 1521) he was told by an Aztec priest that: 'Long, long ago a great flood of water covered the Valley of Mexico and drowned all humanity. So great was the flood that it drowned out the Sun and left the world in darkness. By and by the gods created a new Sun, and this new Sun ruled a new age in the history of the world.' "

This is a typical Aztec production but lacks the usual amount of Aztec frills, ribbons and inventions. It comes out of two separate and distinct legends - one the submergence of the Valley of Mexico, the other the destruction and submergence of Mu, the Motherland.

The submergence of the Valley of Mexico took place long before the submergence of Mu because after the valley had emerged again and become habitable for man, it was repeopled more than once. Mu was called "The Empire of the Sun" and was suzerain over all the world. She was the Sun referred to in the legend. Thus, when Mu, the Sun, was submerged, she, the Sun, "was drowned out."

The Empire of the Sun was the ruler of the whole world. Her laws governed all people. When she was gone, all laws throughout the world became chaotic. New forms of government had to be arranged for each colony and Colonial Empire: each one from then on had to be self-governing.


This certainly was "a new era in the history of the world."

Shortly after the last repeopling from Mu, the great gas belts began to form along the western parts of North America and in forming raised mountain ranges. Two of these mountain ranges run down through Mexico - one on the west side, the other on the east side, forming a broad valley between.


As these ranges were being lifted they carried the valley between them up several thousand feet. If at the time these mountains were being raised Mexico was inhabited, it is safe to say that nearly all of the people perished, as was the case in all other areas where mountains were raised.

The various phenomena which are shown throughout the Valley of Mexico today demonstrate without the possibility of controversy that the mountain ranges in western North America are not over 11,500 years old, if as much. The two Mexican ranges are continuations of the Rocky Mountain and Cascade Ranges.

The bed of the Valley of Mexico during its submergence was a stratum of boulders, gravel and sand, interspersed with seashells which were brought in by the flood from the ocean waters when they filled up the abyss caused by the sinking land. Evidently the water was not very deep nor was the land very long submerged, as there appears to have been insufficient pressure to form a very solid compact rock. Today it is found as a crumbly, unfinished, immature conglomerate rock called tepetate in Mexico.


This tepetate rock is found not only in the valley itself but high up on the mountainsides which surround it. Egyptian records say that this rock was laid down about 16,000 years ago. How long afterwards it emerged again is not known but from the character of the rock, if we may judge from that, it could not have been very long under water, comparatively speaking.

A civilization occupied the land again after it emerged. This civilization was also wiped out by a cataclysm from the ocean. This clinches the fact that the Mexican Mountains are of recent origin.


The Mexican Mountains being of recent origin, and being continuations of our own western ranges, proves that all of the mountain ranges in western North America are of recent origin.


I now come to Niven's second great discovery in Mexico. In little hamlets and villages 4 to 6 miles northwest of Mexico City at a depth of from 17 to 18 feet below the surface, Niven discovered still another Mexican prehistoric civilization.


Among the many treasures which he found were 2600 stone tablets. He has gone to the extreme trouble and monumental labor of making tracings of every one and sending them to me. When sending some of the first tracings he wrote: "I have been informed by professors (mentioning the names of many) and dozens of others, both American and foreign, that they were symbols unlike anything they had ever seen."

Not one of our prominent archaeologists, either in Europe or in America, has been able to decipher a single one of these tablets. This is not surprising for it is impossible for them to decipher any tablet or inscription that is over six or seven thousand years old. To read them one must know the language, the symbols, the alphabet and the cosmogony of Mu.


Mu, the Motherland, is the key to all ancient writings.


The most ancient writings that I have ever seen are of either a religious or a scientific character. Some are about Mu and nothing else. The alphabet of the Motherland consisted of 16 letters and many diphthongs. Each letter had three different glyphs expressing it. The first is the hieratic letter which also carries a hidden meaning.


The second is used in the body of words generally, and the third is used as an adjective or to emphasize. The esoteric or hidden meaning of the hieratic letters was known only to the priesthood and not even to all of them. In most cases the hidden meaning symbolized something - M was the alphabetical symbol for Mu, H the alphabetical symbol for the Sacred Four, and A for the Creator, the Deity.

On examining the tracings of the tablets sent to me by Niven, I saw old friends and found that the keys to the Naacal tablets applied in a general way to these writings. These tablets are the first spoken words from America's prehistoric past.

Besides the tablets Niven found many carved heads, specimens of which he sent to me. If these are truly representative of the people, we have nothing today identically like them. Niven seems to think that they have a Mongol cast. To me, however, they appear more like a coarse Semitic.


Strange as it may appear, the writings on some of the tablets are identical in their religious conceptions with what has recently been found in Babylonia.

When Niven discovered these tablets he found them generally around altars. Each one had a coating of clay, evidently for the purpose of preserving the colors of the glyphs. Being found around altars leads to the impression that they might have been sacred relics and much older than the date of the people in whose possession we find them.

After deciphering and reading a number of these tablets, I found that the bulk of them are extracts and sentences from the Sacred Inspired Writings of Mu, and that in most cases the esoteric or temple glyphs are used.


At this I find myself confronted with a peculiar condition hard to explain satisfactorily to myself.

  1. Many of these tablets are exceedingly crude in workmanship. The drawings and carvings are those of novices. Others are perfectly drawn and carved - the work of experts

  2. The tablets themselves have not been shaped. Their shapes are very irregular, their sizes equally so. They appear to be just water-worn stones with a smooth surface. The figures are drawn to conform to the shape of the stone

  3. The designs, although in some extremely crude, show a highly educated mind with a profound knowledge of the ancients' conception of the origin and workings of the Great Forces, and a perfect knowledge of life and its origin

This civilization was in no way primitive. On the contrary, in science they were far ahead of us today.


Their knowledge of the Cosmic Forces, which our scientists today call "energy" for want of the knowledge of their origin, was evidently perfect. A primitive civilization could not have written these tablets. They are the exposition of the knowledge of a profound science which has only just dawned on the scientific world of today and which has not as yet been learned and mastered by modern man.

How can we account for such profound knowledge, in some cases so crudely written? Their pottery and terra cotta figures are the work of experts.


The writings are queer; yet queer as they are, they are the first words spoken for us to understand from those, who lived in America over 12,000 years ago.

On these tablets is told the form of government among these people.


From the decipherings which will follow, all who read must feel convinced that their religious conceptions and cosmogony were of a very high order. What is more, they thoroughly understood what they were writing about.

One of their great themes was the Creation, which they systematically follow down from chaos to the advent of man.


They state that:

"In the beginning all was chaos and, the universe was soundless and darkness prevailed over all."

Their principal symbol was the Sun as the monotheistic or collective symbol of the Creator.


Their religion was monotheistic. They acknowledged only One Supreme which they worshiped through a collective symbol, the Sun. The Supreme, the Creator was given many attributes each of which was symbolized. Great stress apparently was laid on the fact that these attributes were only powers of the One Supreme.

They had a communistic form of government. All crops were divided according to their laws. I have found no mention whatever of money. Whether they had any or not I cannot say.

Throughout this work, especially in the translations, I have avoided using the word God as being the Infinite, the Deity, because the name god did not mean the Deity among the ancients. To make this clear I will give the origin of the word god.


In all very ancient writings one comes across the word god.


It reads the god this, the god that. Generally we find a name given to the god such as the Chaldean "the god Belmarduk," the Egyptian "the god Thoth," etc. The ancients did not refer to the Creator: to them He was the Supreme. Their meaning was a Cosmic Force originating with the Creator.

In ancient writings we constantly come across the marriage of a god and a goddess who produce or accomplish something. The ancients knew perfectly well that to create anything Two Cosmic Forces were involved. This they were taught in the Sacred Inspired Writings. In these writings they were taught and shown that it was the combined action of two forces that created.


As it was the combined action, or the joining together or coming in contact with each other, it was popularly symbolized as a marriage of the gods - marriage of the two forces. It was probably expressed as a marriage to enable the ancient layman better to understand the phenomenon. Thus we find he was taught that the god A married the goddess B and they produced C.


In the Sacred Writings we find the same phenomenon expressed in temple language, Commands in Creation.

"The arrows of the Sun met the arrows 6 of the earth."

6 May be read as arrow, spear and javelin.


The foregoing is the form of temple writing and not the form of teaching the layman. The Priesthood in turn, to make it more understandable to the layman, symbolized the forces as gods - the first four gods were the Four Great Primary Forces.

Later in the history of Man the souls of man after they had left the material body were added to the list of gods, such as the Egyptian Thoth, the god of learning. This was not out of place, for the ancients knew perfectly well that man at his creation was given Cosmic Forces, that these Forces are under control of the Soul, that when the Soul left the material body it carried the Cosmic Forces with it.


So the soul of man possessing Cosmic Forces was appropriately added to the list of gods. Still later on we find the word god added to the names of the Creator. The earliest of these applications which I can find is in the Bible where the Deity is called God and Lord God.


Since then it has become His most popular name.

From about 2500 years ago we drop down to present times.


Our scientific men, being unable to comprehend the difference between the ancient past god and our present God, have assumed that to the ancients all their gods were Deities and thus they conceived of and worshiped many Gods.


Thus science has formed such a scramble that it has clogged and badly stuck the layman's attitude on this subject, but this is nothing new in man's history.


Before closing this chapter it does not seem amiss to explain why the Valley of Mexico was so often overrun with cataclysmic waves from the oceans.


I have made a sketch which seems to me to be sufficient to show what is required.

The volcanic conditions in and around Mexico and the West Indies


The broken lines running from a northerly direction to a southerly direction are parallels or divisions of the Great Pacific Circuit Gas Belt, 7 the largest within the crust of the earth. On the west of Mexico underneath the ocean three parallels or divisions of this gas belt are shown.


Another two divisions of the same belt are shown coming down underneath the land.



7. See The Lost Continent of Mu, page 252.



Running from east to west are shown the two divisions of the Great Central Gas Belt which runs completely around the earth. This belt has a vast number of parallels, splits, loops, etc., commencing out in the Pacific Ocean, doubling up through Yucatan and Central America and tapering down again after leaving the Continent.

At the time these belts were forming every thrust of the gases when forging sent in a cataclysmic wave over the land. Before these belts could be formed many gas chambers had to be blown out. All those which lay under the ocean, when their roofs were being raised previous to their blowing out, sent cataclysmic waves in over the land.


The divisions of these belts which lay underneath the land were the responsible agents for the raising of the mountains.
