No better or more authentic account of the discovery of these Ancient Tablets can be given than the one sent to me by William Niven himself.


"Since the days of the Spanish conquest the Valley of Mexico, an area some fifty miles long by fifty broad with Mexico City for its center, has been a veritable paradise for seekers of archaeological treasures. Many of the finds, including the Calender Stone, the Monolith of Tizoc and the Graven Tablets of Azcopotzalco region with their mysterious writings, are without equal in the world. My discoveries in this region of the carved Stone Tablets which are attracting so much attention in the scientific world, originated as follows:

"During 1910 after my return to Mexico City from my explorations among the ancient ruined cities in the unknown and uninhabited portion of the State of Guerrero, I began to receive periodic visits from local Indians who came with terra cotta figurines and other objects for sale. They pretended to have found these objects at the Pyramids of the Sun and Moon at San Juan Teotihuacan, a distance of over 25 miles from the capital but having learned that they made the journey to and fro from their 'tierra' in little more than an hour, I offered to pay one of them five pesos ($2.50) if he would reveal to me the real locality where he found the 'idolitos' which he was offering for sale. He gladly accepted my proposal.

"It was in 1921, however, in the course of my excavations at Santiago Ahuizoctla, a hamlet contiguous to Amantla, that I came across the first of the now famous carved stone tablets at a depth of 4 meters from the surface of the ground. This discovery was at once so singular and so startling that I became instantly fired with an immense desire to find more of these tablets, if more indeed were to be found. To this end, I made a systematic exploration of all the clay pits, sand pits and tepetate quarries that existed within an area of 20 square miles and my arduous labors were amply rewarded, for by December, 1923, or in less than three years, I had unearthed 975 of these mysterious tablets. (Now 2600)

"Many of the most important of these were found at Ahuizoctla under and around an altar which had an outline figure upon it painted in red and yellow. The paints used were mostly from oxide of iron. In 1924 Dr. Morley of the Carnegie Institution said that the strange symbols on the carved stones and altar were unlike anything he had ever seen in Mexico or elsewhere."

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.

I cannot carry the age of these tablets back beyond 12,000 years although they may be much older. There is nothing on them to determine their exact age or even approximate age. If we were to start at the beginning of man's history in America we should have to go back beyond 50,000 years ago and possibly more than 100,000 years ago. Geological records show very high and advanced civilization in North America more than 50,000 years ago.


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.


This 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 do today.

Although I find over three dozen names which have been given to The Sacred Four, not a single one of these tells us what The Sacred Four are. This one does.


They are the Four Great Primary Forces which emanate from The Creator.

  • First, they evolved law and order out of chaos throughout the universe

  • Second, by command they became The Creator's executive in creating all things

  • Third, when all was created they were given charge of the physical throughout the Universe

This clearly shows that The Origin of Forces is The Creator himself. All other forces are subsidiary and dependent on these four. Atoms generate forces; the movement of atoms depends on The Great Four.

The Hidden Meanings of the Numbers 1 to 10.

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.


To 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.

  • The Biblical Legend: "And the rib which the Lord took from man, made He a woman."

  • Polynesian Legend: "Out of the bones of man He made a woman and called her Evi."

  • Chinese, Lao Tse, 500 B.C.: "Reason Tao produced one. One became two, two produced three and three produced all mortal beings."

Greek, Plato:

"Human beings were originally created with man and woman combined in one body. Each had four arms and four legs.


The bodies were round and they rolled over and over, using the arms and legs to move them. By and by they began to treat the gods badly. They stopped their sacrifices and even threatened to roll up Mount Olympus to attack and overthrow the gods.


One god said,

'Let us kill them all. They are dangerous.'

Another said,

'No, I have a better idea; we will cut them in half. Then they will only have two legs and two arms. They won't be able to roll, they won't be round. Being multiplied by two, they will offer twice as many sacrifices, and what is most important, each half will be so busy looking for the other half that they will find no time to bother us.' "

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."

Fig. 1. The head of this figure is that of a human being. The eyes are pictured sightless, therefore in sleep (sleep of the ancients is the same as our death today). Therefore, the head is that of a dead man. From the head two forces are shown extending outwards. Below the head on either side is a circle, the symbol of The Creator. Being two, it says the dual principle is involved.

Figs. 2 and 3. The body is composed of two Cosmic Eggs. As they are joined, it implies that the dual principle exists in the body. The upper egg, the top half of the body, is shown as producing forces only. There is no reproduction shown. Therefore, this egg symbolizes the male principle. From the lower egg, the bottom of the body, cosmic eggs are being shown as hatching, in the act of leaving the body.

Fig. 5. Cosmic eggs symbolize reproduction. Therefore, the lower half of the body symbolizes the female principle.

Fig. 6. Forces. Subsidiary Forces are here shown as leaving the forces of the male principle and entering the Cosmic Eggs which are coming from the female principle, thus showing the necessity of connection between the male and female to accomplish reproduction.

Fig. 7. Shears or Cutters. Two forces closing in on each other symbolizes the act of cutting or separating. These forces separate the two Cosmic eggs forming the body of the first man and from his parts two bodies are formed, one having the male principle, the other the female.



The first man created was with the dual principle.


The 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 man.

In the Egyptian cosmogony down to about 2000 B.C., and perhaps afterwards, there is a strong reflection of the foregoing, namely, that first man was created with the dual principle. Plato was one of the Greek philosophers who, when in Egypt, was initiated into the Egyptian Sacred Mysteries.


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.)
"The two produced three (Fig. 2.), and
"From these three all mankind descended" (Fig. 3.).

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 between.

At the time when Mu was submerged records say:

Man on Mu had developed into ten distinct tribes and types of men. (Fig. 4.)

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 changed.

One of the causes which has led to the changing of the ancient types and races to the modern ones has been intermarriage.


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:

"The ten tribes were developed since man came on earth. The people becoming crowded began to spread out. Some families went to far distant settlements; here they were virtually isolated from the rest of mankind. They were so few that sometimes brothers and sisters even had to marry to carry on. These close marriages gave them all a family likeness, so they became a type: time, climate, temperature and food completed the type and they became known as a tribe."

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:

"The cause and causes which have been instrumental in causing the color of men's skins to change are various, but the principal cause has been unbalancing between the Life Force and the elementary compounds forming the skin. This unbalancing was the result of an over or an under stimulation of the glands which carry the Life Force in its secretions through the blood to the various parts of the body including the skin.


Each gland controls certain parts of the body and each gland has a normal volume of the Force which it carries. The secretions of the glands are governed by the character of the food, so that food may produce either a surplus or a shortage of the Force used by a certain gland - in turn the Force carried by its secretions may either underbalance or overbalance the elementary compound it is controlling, resulting in irregularities of form or color or both in the elementary compound.


The Life Force excites the cells to do their work. When there is an over-plus of the Force the cells are unduly excited and work too fast and, on the contrary, when there is an insufficient volume of the Force to form a balance there are irregularities. The principal irregularities in man caused by these vital unbalancings are: size of body, character of the hair, color of the skin and sometimes change of features.


The general cause of vital unbalancing is: character of food, combined with temperature."

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.

The South Sea Islanders have had much to do in forming my opinion on this subject. In each group of islands the communities are small - one group of islands have not married with those of another group, but each group have kept their marriages within themselves, resulting in types.


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.

Let us travel back over the past and read the lessons that have been written in the rocks.

As far back as the Lower Silurian Era we find that terrestrial life existed. At that time little or no vegetation is shown in the rocks, but insect life appeared, a life that was armor plated to resist the great heat of this period. Eons of time afterwards we come to the Devonian Era at the end of which appears luxuriant vegetation all of a super-tropical swamp growth.


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.

In the Valley of Mexico civilization after civilization was destroyed by cataclysmic waves of water, rolling in over the land from the Pacific Ocean.


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.


Here 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.

About a year ago I received from a Tibetian Monastery a pencil rubbing of a map of South America.


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.


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.

In the Oriental Naacal writings it is one of three glyphs forming a paragraph.


This paragraph reads,

"The Creator is One (Fig. 1.) Hun. He is two in one (Fig. 2.) Lahun. These two engendered the Son - Man (Fig. 3.) Mehen."

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,

"Reason Tao made one. One became two. Two produced three. From these three all mankind descended."

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:

that whichever way it is read, commencing at either point of the triangle, it always reads the same -  one, two, three, with the numeral esoteric meaning.

The above, Figures A, B and C, show my meaning.

The Creator created one. One became two. Two produced three.


On page 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 conception.

The Mysterious Writing consisted of either six small circles or six small disks, placed so as to form a triangle or a pyramid or a keystone. The rows are so placed that they count one, two, three.


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.)


Sometimes these lines were drawn horizontally, sometimes vertically, apparently dependent on the form of space available. (Figs. 4 and 5.)



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:

A universal symbol as before stated (Fig, 1.). The Northern or Uighur form of symbol for writing the numeral one (Fig. 2.). Numeral 2 (Fig. 3.). Numeral 3 (Fig. 4.). Numeral 3 is specialized by not having one end closed. The significance of this will be shown in the deciphering and translation hereafter.


One became two, two produced three, from these three life was continued on.

Continuation is shown in the glyph for numeral 4. In this glyph the bars on one end are not enclosed. The end of a line unattached to anything was the ancient symbol for incompleted, being carried on but unfinished.

I must also note the numeral 1 glyph, a single enclosed bar. A similar bar was used by the Nagas as the glyph for the numeral 5. They made their count in 5's to avoid naming the numeral 10. Ten was the numeral symbol for the Deity, and for this reason was looked upon as being too sacred to use or mention.


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.

The first line reads one, two, three, same as the Brazilian writing. The lines or bars here are the pure Uighur. They are not enclosed as with the Carians generally. In the second and third lines the ancient Uighur glyph for man is shown - Mehen.

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.

I will now cross the Pacific Ocean from North and South America to China in Eastern Asia.



"Reason Tao created one. One became two. The two produced three. From these three all mankind descended."

Most of the Tao te King is made up of extracts from the Uighur copy of the Sacred Inspired Writings of Mu.

A U M is an inscription that has baffled all scholars and scientists throughout the world, the Hindus included, for more than 2300 years. Its import was lost when the Naacals were driven out of India by the Brahmins. Many scholars have attempted to fathom its meaning.


None have, however, arrived at any satisfactory meaning or conclusions; even the oldest are very indefinite, as examples:

Manava Dharma Sastra

an ancient Hindu book

Book 2, Sloka 74

"In the beginning the infinite only existed, called Aditi. In this Infinite dwelt A U M whose name must precede all prayers and invocations."

Book of Manu

Ancient Hindu. Sloka 77

"The monosyllable A U M means earth, sky and heaven."

J. T. Wheeler, "History of India"

Vol. 2, page 481, says:

"As regards the three letters A U M little can be gathered excepting that when brought together in the word A U M they are said by Manu to form a symbol of the Lord of all created things - Brahma."

H. T. Colebrook in "Asiatic research" says:

"According to Noruka, which is an ancient glossary of the Vedas, the syllable A U M refers to every Deity.

"The Brahmins may reserve for their initiates an esoteric more ample than that given by Manu."

Noruka is a Brahminitical version of the Vedas.


The Vedas were stolen from 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.

A U M conveys identically the same meaning and conception as the Mysterious Writing, and Niven's Mexican tablet No. 2379. The only difference between the two is in the form of writing.


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:

A..... .Ahau... .Masculine... .The Father
U...... Female pronoun she.... The Mother 1
M .... .Mehen. The engendered.. .The Son

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.

The Brahmins formed a complicated theology around the original conception, absolutely incomprehensible to the people.


During the 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 Sacred Teachings.

The Brahminitical theology became what was intended, a wonderful breeder of superstition and awe. The people became the slaves of the priesthood. The priesthood dragged the nation down from the highest pinnacle of civilization to almost the last rung of the ladder.

When their religion has been cleansed of the extravagances, superstitions and inventions, the scales will have been torn from the eyes of the people and they can and will rise again to their old magnificence. The weeds are thick, but still among the weeds some of the old flowers remain. Dig out and burn the weeds, soon then will India be one of the great leaders in all sciences and learning. Hack off the slave chains from them.


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.

2. To be distinguished from Ra Ma. Ra Mu was the Emperor and Hieratic Head of Mu, The Empire of the Sua. Ra Ma was the first Emperor of the Naga Empire of India.

This is a particularly valuable writing as it shows that this civilization flourished at the time Mu was above water because this Temple was under her jurisdiction, therefore, before Mu was submerged.


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.



Group 1

Figure 1

This is the original symbol (See 1.) of the Creator having the dual principle. It is the symbol used in the Sacred Writings of Mu and there called Lahun "all in one" or "both in one."


As shown, the glyph is a circle, bisected through the middle by a line. The circle symbolizes the Creator; the two halves, His dual principle. In the ancient Oriental writings the dividing line was drawn vertically by the Nagas and horizontally by the Uighurs. Both, however, have the same meaning.


The conception of the Creator having the dual principle was taught tens of thousands of years before these Mexican tablets were written.


Figure 2, Tablet No. 1430.

This symbolism of a creation refers to something on this earth as shown by the shape of the eyes of the female principle which are square, the earth symbol (See 2.). That the two faces both belong to the Creator is shown by His symbol, being on both sides of each face (See 3.). This symbol is of the Naga pattern.


Corroborating the foregoing are the two inscriptions (See 4 and 5.).

Figure 3, Tablet No, 150

This is another symbolization of the dual principle. The upper half of the figure symbolizes the Sun as the male principle and the lower half the Moon as the female principle. This is corroborated as in the previous tablet by the symbol of the Creator (See 5.) on each side of each face.


Below the upper symbols of the Creator are two lozenges or enclosures reading: "one is two and two are three."


The lower face symbolizes the Moon as the female principle. Thus the Sun and Moon in this picture are shown symbolizing the dual principle of the Creator. Below the moon on either side are two glyphs (See 4.) both of which read "five," the full godhead all in one. When a temple or pyramid was dedicated to the Sun, it was to the male principle of the Creator and when dedicated to the Moon it was to the female principle.


Thus in both cases the dedications were to the Creator and not to the Celestial Orbs. They were only used as symbols.

Figure 4, Tablet No. 1006

On this tablet the dual principle is symbolized by a serpent as shown by the two symbols of the Creator. This pattern of the Sun was generally used by the northern people of Mu and the Uighurs.

Figure 5

This is an exceptionally interesting little bit of symbolism and shows the high state of art of these old Mexicans of 12,000 years ago. The head symbolized the Creator. On this head is a crown containing 7 rays, the numeral symbol of Creation. At the left end of the rays is an arrow, spear or dart head, the symbol for activity, in operation, etc.


The body is that of a chrysalis, the glyph used by these old Mexicans to denote the home of forces. There are 4 lines repeated, one set above the other - the Four Great Primary Forces. On either side is the symbol of the Creator, who is carrying out creation through the Four Sacred Ones.


The Creator's symbol being twice shown denotes the dual principle.

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.

Group 2

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.

Both in these tablets and in Oriental writings it is shown that the divisions were not everywhere alike. In the Naga countries, as a rule, one-sixth went for the upkeep of the government and temples. In most of the Uighur districts it was generally one-ninth for the same purposes. Nothing is known as to why these variations in divisions were made. In these tablets I find the variations run from one-sixth to one-twelfth for the government and temples.


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.

Tablet No. 1647. Shows 9 divisions with the divisions allotted to the government and temples and a common granary for future contingencies.

No. 237. Shows 6 divisions and their distribution. This is the general Naga division and still practiced in some of the small states in India.

No. 921. Shows 9 divisions, the general Uighur percentages.

No. 535. Also shows 9 divisions with their final allotments.

These four tablets are typical of a group of over 100.


Group 3

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 they move.

The body is in the form of a pod or chrysalis, the ancient symbol for the "home of forces and refers only to the Four Great Primary Forces. The body or pod has various lines engraved upon it. These lines are writings telling us what the figure symbolizes. Line writing is one of the oldest forms of esoteric writing, a script with a hidden meaning. The numbers used in this form of writing ran from one to ten.


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,

"to honor the name of God with numbers," and "the number four represents the mystic name of the Creative Powers."

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 trunk is the symbol of the direction in which certain forces are moving throughout the universe. It represents both circular and elliptical movements. It also covers the movement of bodies on their axes. Every one of these figures without a single exception faces west with the trunk curling towards the east.


The number of limbs found on these figures varies from none to four. They mark the movements of the forces in the universe.

In this group of tablets it is shown how the great centripetal forces which collected the gases, brought them into a compact mass and then molded them, evolved into the earth's gyroscopical force which now keeps the earth in an upright position and prevents its rolling over.


The details of this I am reserving for another work - The Cosmic Forces.

Group 4

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 bird.

In Ellis' Polynesian Research 3 he records a legend that fits in with the foregoing. Ellis says:

"In the Sandwich Islands there is a tradition that in the beginning there was nothing but water when a big bird descended from on high and laid an egg in the sea, the egg burst and Hawaii came forth."
3. Vol.-1, page 100.

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.

These are the only tablets I have ever come across containing symbolic birds, although writings and inscriptions are plentiful in all ancient lands.

Group 5

The Serpent was always the symbol of the waters. From the beginning, Khan, the unadorned serpent, has been the only symbol.

There are at least fifty tablets among Niven's collection symbolizing passages in the 5th Command in Creation as detailed in the Sacred Inspired Writings. I have selected 16 as being typical of them.


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.
Fig. 2. A Cosmic Egg, the life germ of today.
Fig. 3. Compound glyph, divided in Figs, 4 and 5.
Fig. 4. An abyss, a deep hole, depth, etc.
Fig. 5. The Numeral four, Uighur form of writing.

The 5th Command in Creation:

"And the Creator said, 'Let the waters bring forth life.' Then the arrows of the Sun met the arrows of the earth in the mud of the waters and out of particles of mud formed Cosmic eggs. From these eggs came forth life as commanded."

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.


The bottom of the abyss is the ocean's bed. There the mud is settled out of which the cosmic egg is to be formed. The numeral 4 symbolizes the Four Great Primary Forces, the executors of the Creator's commands.


"The Creator's command to the Sacred Four was, 'Let the waters bring forth life.' The Sacred Four acted and a cosmic egg was formed out of the mud, the bed of the waters, from which the first of nature's lives on earth came forth as commanded."

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