In the land of Mu we have unquestionably found where man made his advent upon the earth. Various records conclusively prove that this land was the Biblical Garden of Eden; prove that Mu lay to the west of America and to the east of Asia, and therefore in the Pacific Ocean.

Data that I have examined also show that the motherland was in the Pacific Ocean, because much of this data consists of the actual remains of the vanished continent. On parts that were not submerged there still remain vestiges of temples, traditions, statuary and sacred symbols, and the written evidence and inscriptions declare that these mementoes of a vanished race originated in Mu.


The authenticity of the remains is corroborated in every possible manner - by written records, by inscriptions, by customs, by language, and, finally, by traditions.

I have established by this indisputable evidence the place where there was a prehistoric civilization.


Much of the evidence is concretely furnished by stone temples, stone monuments, stone statuary, cut and dressed stone waiting shipment, and the quarries whence the stone came. In these quarries unfinished statuary has been found, and as these discoveries have been made in the South Sea Islands, it demonstrates beyond shadow of a doubt that those islands were once parts of the submerged continent.

The records and data based on the supposed age of the Troano Manuscript establish that the land of Mu was in existence up to the very edge of historical times - existed, that is to say, up to within 12,000 to 12,500 years ago. Taking the islands whereon remains and traditions have been found, I have sketched a map indicating where Mu was situated in the Pacific Ocean.


There is nothing upon which to base either a western or a northern coast line. From various records it would seem that this continent consisted of three separate lands, divided from each other by narrow seas or channels, but where or how these divisions were made by nature there is nothing to show, except, possibly, an Egyptian hieroglyphic which represents three long, narrow lands running east to west

For various reasons, the principal one being colonization, I think the land ran much farther north than has been shown.


I have given Easter Island as the southeast corner, Tonga-tabu as about the southwestern corner, the Ladrones as the northwestern corner, Hawaii in the north, and no defined northeastern corner. I have made many large bays and estuaries, because records show that the land was low, without mountains. As the land was so low and rolling, with immense plains, it would naturally have a coast line similar to the one I have drawn.

Both the Troano Manuscript and the Codex Cortesianus refer to the land of Mu as the land of hills or "ridges of earth." The Greek record speaks of "plains." I felt convinced that all three of the records are correct, because up to the time the continent vanished beneath the Pacific there were no mountains. The volcanic workings which sent Mu beneath the waves were preparatory to mountain raising.

Where we find specks of land above water, with incontrovertible evidences of continental resources, we are made doubly certain that these specks are parts or remains of a continent.


These bits of land are, as I have said, little islands peopled by savages. They are thousands of miles away from any mainland, and it is therefore the strongest possible proof, stronger than any record, inscription or tradition, that back in prehistoric times there was a continent and that the continent was peopled by highly civilized human beings.

The ancient records and remains on the South Sea Islands show us that man was created a civilized being but untutored and uncultured. He was created with a knowledge of his own soul and believed in and worshiped the Deity. It is revealed by the presence of certain figures used as sacred symbols that man, generally, was at that time in an undeveloped intellectual state and the simplicity of the first sacred symbols was necessary in order to convey ordinary subjects to his mind.


When, however, we first get in touch with man, thousands upon thousands of years after his advent upon earth, we find that he was then in a highly enlightened and civilized state - and that was more than 50,000 years ago!

Certain archaeologists have, in their writings, touched the subject of the land of Mu and the Lands of the West; but, as they took no pains to verify various records that came before them, having simply made deductions, it is time that readers interested in the early appearance of man on earth should be informed of some positive facts based upon my own careful investigations.

Schliemann, on apparently two records only, the Troano Manuscript and the Lhasa Record, asserts that Atlantis was the land of Mu. These records do not state that Mu and Atlantis were identical; it is mere surmise on the part of Schliemann. Other records which he might have consulted would have told him plainly that the land of Mu lay to the west of America and not to the east, the location of Atlantis.


However, both Atlantis and the land of Mu were destroyed by volcanic eruptions and submerged. Science has proved that beyond the shadow of a doubt.

Le Plongeon advanced the theory that Central America was the Lands of the West and therefore the land of Mu, basing his deductions on the contour of the land around the Caribbean Sea, but forgetting entirely that all records establish the fact that the Lands of the West were destroyed and submerged, while Central America to this day is, of course, unsubmerged.


This is as plausible as saying that a certain man is dead while he is arguing some point with you.

Possibly some of these errors arose from the fact that certain records read in Europe were written in America, and the readers, without thinking, based their calculations from Europe instead of from America.


This would be in keeping with the reference to Atlantis made by the old Greek philosopher:

"The Land beyond the Sea - the Saturnian Continent."

The Saturnian Continent, by the way, was one of the ancient names for Atlantis.

The exact difference between the records is - the Lands of the West from America and the Land beyond the Sea from Europe. Evidently the writer of the Greek record wished to avoid mistakes, because he qualified his statement about the Land beyond the Sea by designating it clearly as the Saturnian Continent, which was Atlantis.


Surely this is plain enough to satisfy the most exacting !

The Troano Manuscript places the sinking of the land of Mu as having occurred approximately 12,500 years ago. (I think 12,000 is nearer correct.) However, the figures must all be approximate because the exact age of the Troano Manuscript is not known.

Souchis, high priest of the temple of Sals, told Solon that Atlantis sank 11,500 years ago and that the passageway to the Lands of the West was blocked on account of the sinking of this great country, and the destruction of the intervening country beyond Atlantis by cataclysms, which made that country impassable.


This clearly eliminates the possibility that Atlantis may have been the land of Mu or the Lands of the West.

Those who have hitherto written about the land of Mu have ignored the most important records connected with the prehistoric continent, namely, the remains on the South Sea Islands and the inscriptions on the walls of the Temple of Sacred Mysteries at Uxmal, Yucatan, to which may be added the astounding traditions found among the South Sea Islanders.

From the remains found on the South Sea Islands supported by records and traditions, it is shown that the South Sea Islanders, in spite of their present savage and semi-savage state, were not always in that condition; it is clearly established that they are the descendants of highly civilized and enlightened forefathers. Looking at their present condition, it is self-evident that far back, in the prehistoric past, some great calamity overtook their ancestors.

In their anxiety to sustain their monkey theories, scientists have tried to prove that man did not appear upon the face of the earth until the early Pleistocene Time, but a pin-prick can dissipate this scientific bubble.


The remains of man have been found in the gravel beds of Europe which were made by the settling waters of the last great Magnetic Cataclysm, the geological Glacial Period, an occurrence that marked the end of the Pliocene. The den men of Nebraska were also wiped out by this same cataclysm.

Niven's upper city was built before the mountains were raised at the beginning of the Pleistocene; his lowest city was built tens of thousands of years before this and goes far back into the Tertiary Era. This is also corroborated by the cut on Capital Hill in Smyrna, Asia Minor.

Scientists have always tried to maintain the theory that the white races originated in Asia, yet they have not a vestige of proof to sustain it - not a single record of any description. Their deductions are only surmises. I will undertake to show in this book where they originated and trace them to Europe.

One of the most startling discoveries is that the natives of the Polynesian groups of South Sea Islands are a white race. Further, they are an exceedingly handsome people, a link that joins perfectly the white races of the earth.

As I have established, records show us that man undoubtedly made his advent on this earth in the land of Mu, and the Polynesian Islands are jagged remains of the ill-fated continent. Records also show that Mexico and Central America were colonized and settled by people from the land of Mu.


Traditions support the fact that these first colonizers from Mu were blond-whites, that these blond-white people were driven from the land by another white race of more swarthy complexion - brunettes:

that the blond-white people sailed in their ships to a far-off land in the direction of the rising sun - east - and there settled, in the northern part of Europe - Scandinavia of today.

It is also made plain by these same records that southern Europe, Asia Minor, and northern Africa were colonized and settled by the brunette race by-way of Mayax, Central America and Atlantis.

If we leave the white Polynesians and visit one of the brown races found farther west, in the group of South Sea Islands called Micronesia, we find the brown, as well as the white races of the South Sea Islands, are today splendid specimens of physical manhood. They resemble the finest of the old Greek bronze statues. The Fijians, a brown race, are said to be the most skilled of the South Sea Islanders. The third picture in the series of halftones (between pages 160-1) shows a member of a brown race, Arawali, a native of Arorai Island of the Gilbert group, which lies about 4000 miles southwest of Hawaii.

The picture shows a girl with a beautifully shaped, well-developed head, of pleasing countenance and gentle expression.


She is the daughter of the King of Arorai Island. It has been said of her that,

"she is a very gentle, lovable woman, but quick-tempered and slightly jealous, but very dignified notwithstanding her wretched surroundings."

Arawali's head and face belong to the representative of a high type of civilization, although her dress is that of a savage. Poor Arawali! She is one of a tribe of cannibals, but, strangely enough, she herself has never tasted "long-pig" the euphemistic name applied by the natives to human flesh.


In her hand she carries a fan, the ornamentation of which is the royal escutcheon of Mu - the Empire of the Sun.

No ancient record has ever been found that mentions savagery as existing on any spot of the earth's surface prior to the destruction of Mu.


Then why did such magnificent specimens of man as the forefathers of the South Sea Islanders become degraded cannibals? Our story of the great calamity that overtook the first race of man answers this question.

Bird Symbols of The Creator. Birds as symbols of the Creative Attribute of the Deity appear to have been the most prominent symbol for the Creative Forces among the people who inhabited the northeastern parts of the Motherland. The Bird Symbol extended south as far as where Hawaii now stands and perhaps farther.

Without question it was held as a sacred symbol among all people of the Motherland, although among some not the favored creative symbol. There are many records about sacred birds in all Oriental countries, in Egypt, Babylonia and ancient Mexico, as shown by Niven's Mexican Stone Tablets: and, today, it is much alive among the North American Indians who call it the Thunder Bird.


The Indian legend says that "lightning is the blinking of the Thunder Bird's eyes, and thunder is the flapping of its wings: also, that rain comes from a lake situated in the middle of the back of the Thunder Bird.

Niven's Mexican Bird Tablets. Among Niven's collection of 2600 ancient stone tablets, there are about thirty containing birds. I have selected three as being representative of the whole thirty.

These birds are all symbols of the Creator as told by the writing on them, the old temple esoteric numeral writing.

They were drawn by some unknown Uighur people, as the Uighur form of numerals, lines or bars, is used. This is confirmed by the eyes which are the Uighur pattern of the Picture of the Sun and the monotheistic symbol of the Deity.

The central figure, No. 1086, is holding the hieratic letter H. The alphabetical symbol for the Creative Forces.

In Hawaii there is a legend that,

"a big bird from on high came down and laid an egg in the sea. The egg burst and Hawaii came forth."

So that from this we may infer that the Bird Symbol for the Creator was used by the ancient Hawaiians.

Seb, the Egyptian Bird. Among the Egyptian Pantheon we find one of the gods named after a bird, a goose. The goose is the sacred bird mentioned in Oriental legends. Upper Egypt was colonized from India.

Seb was called "the father of the gods," "the bearer of the gods," etc. Seb is the Egyptian name for a certain species of goose which was worn as a symbol on his headdress.


Seb was also called "the great Cackler" which produced the mundane egg out of which the earth was produced; therefore, the human body also.


It is written,

"I protect the egg of the great Cackler. If I thrive it thrives, if I live it lives, if I breathe the breath of air it breathes".

(Book of the Dead)

It here also clearly shows that the bird Seb was a symbol of the Creative Forces - the Great Primary Four.

A North American Indian Tableau Depicting the Destruction of Mu. This tableau comes from the Nootka Indians who live on the west coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.

While there are scores, yes, hundreds of writings, telling of Mu and her destruction, and various compound symbols forming vignettes in the ancient Maya writings, such as the Troano Manuscript, the Borgian Codex, the Codex Cortesianus, throughout the world I have only found two tableaux or pictures showing the manner of her destruction. First, the Egyptian and now this North American Indian. There is, however, a marked difference in the two.


The Egyptian depicts Mu falling into an abyss of fire, the North American Indian tells of the waters flowing in over her and submerging her - two phases of the general description of her destruction - so that both the Egyptian and the North American Indian are shown to be correct.


Although these two peoples are so widely separated on the earth's surface now, at that time both knew the scientific cause of Mu's destruction.


Many of the symbols forming this Indian tableau are identical with those used in Mu, while others are not so familiar.

The most prominent change from the general writings of Mu is in the symbol used by the Indians for symbolizing the waters. In the Naga, Uighur, Karian, American Maya, etc., an unadorned serpent was used, called Khanab, its body generally shown in wavy lines like the rolls of the ocean swell.


These old Indians, however, have gone their Southern neighbors one better - they have divided the waters, using the biggest of fishes to symbolize oceans and the wavy serpent line to symbolize lesser waters. They call their symbol for the oceans the killer whale. This symbol is found among many of the Northwest Indian tribes if not all; therefore, it had a common origin among them.


It was probably designated "the killer" on account of its having swept over and drowne'd so many millions of the people of Mu.

The tableau is divided into three figures - a serpent, a bird and a fish.

Top: The Serpent. This serpent has a plume of feathers on its head ; it is, therefore, an adorned serpent. It is a conventional drawing of Quetzacoatl, the feathered serpent of the northern people of the Motherland. An adorned serpent has always been the symbol among all ancient peoples for the Deity as the Creator and His Creations - the Seven Commands as given in the Books of the Golden Age.

In the center of the picture is a conventional bird which the Indians call the Thunder Bird - Thunder Bird legends permeate the legends of Indians of the Northwest.

In Mu I find birds were used in the northern parts to symbolize the Sacred Four - the Four Great Primary and Creative Forces - the executors of the Creator's seven great commands.


The use of these bird symbols must have been quite extensive in the Motherland as we find their reflection in Hawaii, Pacific Ocean; Niven's tablets, Mexico; the Egyptian god Seb - and also throughout the Orient. In addition to birds crosses were used to symbolize the Sacred Four. Judging by what has come to light, crosses were universally used. As far back as 70,000 years ago the plain cross appears in the Sacred Writings as the symbol of the Four Creative Forces.

Bottom: Third figure - is a large fish, a conventional whale, the Killer Whale. The North American Indians are the only people I have found who use a fish to symbolize water, and yet it is a most natural symbol. The wonder to me is that it did not become prominent among all people.

The Thunder Bird symbolizing the Great Forces is depicted as standing on the whale, which is the ocean waters, with its claws embedded in the whale's back, showing that the waters are in the grip and under control of the forces.

The whale, the ocean waters, is dead - quiescent, as its neck has been broken by the forces; therefore, it can kill no more. The tragedy has been accomplished.

This is shown by Magnetic Forces falling from the wings of the Thunder Bird and forming an abyss.

No. 1. The eye of the whale is formed by two squares one within the other, and a third solid square forming the pupil. The two line squares symbolize mother and land, i. e., Motherland. The solid black square, the pupil, symbolizes darkness, no sun shines upon her. This in combination with the broken neck and the abyss, being carried into it, reads: The Motherland has been carried down into the abyss of darkness.

In Niven's Mexican tablet No. 1430 an exact counterpart of this eye is seen.

From now on the reading is easy. I have only to deal with the symbols in common use in the Motherland and most of her colonies.

No. 2. Through the mouth of the whale water is shown as carrying down something to the throat.

No. 3. At the end of the mouth is a throat with the passage showing near the Center. Beyond the throat is the Symbol (No. 4.), the hieratic letter U of the Motherland's alphabet. The esoteric meaning of this letter is an abyss. We now see that the Motherland was carried down into a watery abyss - submerged.

No. 5. Directly beyond the abyss come four bars, one of the Motherland's forms of writing numerals. Thus four bars meant the numeral four. Four was the numeral symbol of the Sacred Four - the Four Great Creative Forces.

No. 6. On the backbone of the fish are four disks, another popular form of writing the numeral four.

No. 7. Above the backbone are shown five bars - the numeral five - the symbol of the full Godhead of five, The Creator and his Four Great Creative Forces.

This tableau asserts that the Motherland was destroyed indirectly, through the Four Great Forces - a fact mentioned in all writings about the destruction of Mu.

Legend. The Creator desired the destruction of the Motherland of Man. The Four Great Forces, the executors of the Creator's commands, caused the lands to go down and the waters to cover them over - They went down into a watery abyss and were submerged.

In addition to the writings on the Nevada stones about Mu we have here a purely American account of her destruction. Truly our western America has more records of the very ancient past than all the rest of the world put together. These American records are hoary with age.

An Alaskan Totem Pole (halftones between pages 160-1). - This totem pole comes from the Haidan Indians of Queen Charlotte Islands, Alaska. The tribe is known as Kwa Ma Kolas. One of the old chiefs explained the symbols on this pole as follows:

"The winged creature that crowns the pole is the Thunder Bird, the representative of the Creator. 1 Lightning is the winking of the Thunder Bird's sharp eyes, and thunder is the flapping of its wings. Rain is the spilling of water from a huge lake in the middle of his immense back. 2 The talons of the Thunder Bird are fastened in the tail of the Killer Whale." 3

The Haidan Chief, the oldest living member of the tribe explained:

"In the days of the great flood, the Steel-headed man 3a was the leader of all men and much beloved by the Thunder Bird, the Thunder God and all the other gods.

"When this great flood swept over the face of the earth the gods feared for the life of the Steel-headed man, whom they miraculously changed into a steel-headed salmon." 4

1 The Thunder Bird is here shown as the symbol of the Four Great Creative Forces, emanating from the Creator. I find this symbol with the same meaning among many of the North American Indian tribes, especially those of the Northwest.

Birds as symbols for the Four Creative Forces are found on many of Niven's Mexican Tablets. It also appears with the Egyptians in their ancient god Seb. The Thunder Bird appears in the oldest of the legendary lore of the North American Indians. This, with Mexico and Egypt, shows it to be of common origin, and that origin Mu.

2 Lightning is caused by the workings of the Four Great Primary Forces and here described as their work. Not bad for the Redskin.

3 The Killer Whale. This symbol forms the greater part of the height of the pole. The Killer Whale was the North American Indians' symbol for the ocean. Most of the ten tribes of Mu used an unadorned serpent for the symbol of the waters - all waters including oceans.

3a The Steel-headed man. About halfway up the pole is the figure of a man - the Steel-headed man and the legendary founder of the Haidan Tribe. In his hand he holds a lance with which he is piercing the body of the Killer Whale.

4 Here we have the completion of a myth which has crept into the original legend - Steel and Steel-headed salmon were names unknown to those Indians 200 years ago. Without question, as there was a stretch of water between Alaska and Mu, the forefathers of the Haidans came by boat - they did not swim. There are many symbolical carvings in the Orient depicting the Children of Mu leaving the Motherland as fish skipping along the surface of the water. See Cut, Page 186.


Nor does the legend show the arrival of women. How could the tribe grow without women?

The Flood. Here a flood is recorded but sufficient data are not given to lay whether it was the Last Magnetic Cataclysm or a Volcanic Cataclysm caused by the sinking of Mu, or through the formation of the gai belts in this region.


A flood is recorded by many of the North American Tribes.

"During the days of the flood the transformed leader of men, lived in the waters of the Nimpkish River. He gathered the posts and the timbers for his dwelling but found he lacked strength to do the building. 5

"Then the Thunder Bird appeared before the Steel-headed man in a great crashing and rumbling of thunder. The Thunder Bird lifted his god mask and revealed a human face to the Steel-headed man. 'I am as human as you,' said the bird, 'and I will put up the timbers for you. Here shall I stay with you to set up your tribe and be your protector for ever.' Then with four claps of thunder, the bird caused to appear a group of warriors who sprang out of the crashing din full-armored. They with the Steel-headed man were the nucleus from which the Haidan people grew." 6

5 Here there is an apparent omission in the legend. It is not shown how the Steel-headed man became a man again.
6 In this sentence there is much that is mythical. No doubt the fact is the group of warriors referred to were subsequent arrivals from Mu.


The other symbols on this totem pole tell the story of the "Warrior Princess," a double-headed monster of the sea, and the legend of the Whale and Sea Lion.

The Whale and Sea Lion. "The Sea Lion was helping a warrior to save his wife from the Killer Whale (drowning) when he was overcome and struck down himself by the Killer Whale. He was saved and restored to his family by Kolus, the protecting god of the household. The Sea Lion was made a member of the tribe and married the Warrior Princess, the daughter of the Steel-headed man. 7


7 The Sea Lion was without question a man of another tribe whose totem was a sea HOD. In ancient times it was quite common to call a man by the name of his totem.



The Algonkin Indians have a tradition as told by John Ballou in his Oahspe about the Flood and the submersion of Mu - called Pan. As related in this book the tradition is actually two traditions in one.

"The Algonkin Indians had a warning of the Flood and were building ships in which to escape. 138 ships of the deluge set out from the Continent of Pan (PAN)." Attached to and directly following this is: "In the same day the gates of heaven and Earth were opened."

"And the earth rocked to and fro, as a ship at sea, and the rains fell in torrents, and loud thunderings (earthquakes) came up from beneath the floor of the world. And the vortex of the earth closed in from the extreme, and lo, the earth was broken I A mighty Continent was cut loose from its fastenings, and the fires of the earth came forth in flames and clouds with loud roarings. And the land rocked to and fro like a ship at sea. And again the vortex of the earth is about on all sides, and by the pressure the land sank down beneath the waters, to rise no more."

As the Steel-headed man governed all men, without a particle of doubt he was their symbol for Mu. Mu governed the whole world and was called - the Great Ruler.
