CHAPTER IV
RECORDS OF THE LOST CONTINENT

The records referring to the land of Mu are many and various. Among written records are some that tell us man made his advent on earth in the land of Mu - the Naacal Tablets, for instance.

Other records give us the geographical position of the lost continent.

The American written records, which are many, tell us the land of Mu lay to the west of America. The Asiatic records all say Mu, the Motherland, lay to the east of Asia - "towards the rising sun." Therefore, the Motherland of Man, being between America and Asia, lay in the Pacific Ocean, and on the islands we find stone remains of her great cities and temples, and also a white race.

I shall first take the American written records, commencing with the Troano Manuscript, an ancient Maya book written in Yucatan. It has been estimated to be from 1500 to 5000 years old. It is, I think, between 1500 and 3000 years old. I base this on the form of its writing.

Several extracts from the Troano Manuscript that I here present will conclusively prove the correctness of my contention regarding Mu:

 

Extract 1.

"In the year 6 Kan, on the 11 Muluc, in the month of Zac, there occurred terrific earthquakes which continued until the 13 Chuen without interruption. The country of the hills of earth - the land of Mu - was sacrificed. Twice upheaved, it disappeared during the night, having been constantly shaken by the fires of the underneath.

 

Being confined, these caused the land to rise and to sink several times in various places. At last the surface gave way and the ten countries (or tribes) were torn asunder and scattered. They sank with their 64,000,000 inhabitants 8060 years before the writing of this book."

Geologically, the description "the country of the hills of earth" is absolutely correct and accounts for the quarries that are to be found on Easter Island.
 


Extract 2.

"The birthplace of the sacred mysteries. Mu - the Lands of the West. That land of Kui. The motherland of the gods."

1. Is one of the letters M in the hieratical alphabet of Mu and is here alphabetical symbol; thus we have Mu.
2. Is one of the letters T in the hieratical alphabet, and often used as the word "the" in the spoken language.
3. Is the universal geographical symbol for the Lands of the West.

The characters being in block designate the past tense; thus,

"Mu was the Lands of the West."

1. That.
2. Land of Kui or Kui Land.
3. Lands of the West.

The Lands of the West were the Land of Kui.

This extract is the most important known passage referring to the Motherland of Man, for it has already been shown that the geographical name of the Motherland of Man was the Lands of the West, and as the Troano Manuscript was written in America, it also shows that the Lands of the West lay to the west of America. Many records will be brought forward confirming the fact that the Motherland of Man lay to the west of America.

"That land of Kui" means the land of departed souls. The Egyptian Ka with its extended meaning comes out of the Maya Kui.

In ancient times "god" did not mean the Deity. It referred to the soul of a departed one. Thus, the Motherland of the Gods, mentioned in the manuscript, means, by extension, the Motherland of Man.

Sir Gardner Wilkinson, the great Egyptologist, in his book, Manners and Customs, Volume III, page 70, says:

"Kui-Land or the Land of Kui, according to the Maya language, was the birthplace of the goddess Maya, the mother of the gods - and of man."

Extract 2, by the way, is corroborated many times in the Egyptian Book of the Dead.
 


CODEX CORTESIANUS

The Codex Cortesianus is another of the old Maya books that escaped the eyes of the fanatical Bishop Landa.

 

This book is now in the National Museum of Madrid. The characters, figures and writings would indicate that it is of about the same age as the Troano Manuscript. The language of the Codex Cortesianus, however, is much more symbolical than that of the Troano Manuscript.

 

Here are some extracts from it, bearing on our subject:

"By his strong arm Homen caused the earth to tremble after sunset and during the night Mu, the country of the hills of earth, was submerged."

"Mu, the life of the basin (seas), was submerged by Homen during the night."

"The place of the dead ruler is now lifeless, it moves no more, after having twice jumped from its foundations: the king of the deep, while forcing his way out, has shaken it up and down, has killed it, has submerged it."

"Twice Mu jumped from her foundations; it was then sacrificed by fire. It burst while being shaken up and down violently by earthquakes. By kicking it, the wizard that makes all things move like a mass of worms, sacrificed it that very night."

It is self-evident that both the Codex Cortesianus and the Troano Manuscript were written from the same temple record. The Codex Cortesianus gives the land its hieratical name only, while the Troano Manuscript gives both its hieratical and geographical names.
 


THE LHASA RECORD

This record was discovered by Schliemann in the old Buddhist Temple of Lhasa, Tibet.

 

Schliemann deciphered and translated it. It evidently does not come from the same original record as do the Troano Manuscript and the Codex Cortesianus. It is more modern and is not written in Maya characters.

Here is an interesting extract from the Lhasa Record:

"When the star of Bal fell on the place where now is only the sky and the sea, the seven cities with their golden gates and transparent temples, quivered and shook like the leaves in a storm; and, behold, a flood of fire and smoke arose from the palaces. Agonies and cries of the multitude filled the air.

 

They sought refuge in their temples and citadels, and the wise Mu - the Hieratic Ra Mu - arose and said to them: did I not predict all this? And the women and the men in their precious stones and shining garments lamented 'Mu, save us!' and Mu replied: 'You shall all die together with your servants and your riches, and from your ashes new nations shall arise. If they forget they are superior not because of what they put on but what they put out the same will befall them.'

 

Flames and smoke choked the words of Mu: the land and its inhabitants were torn to pieces and swallowed up by the depths."

Bal is a Maya word meaning "Lord of the Fields."

 

"Transparent temples" is, without doubt, a mistranslation. These temples were not built of glass or any other transparent substance. They were open or roofless temples so constructed that the rays of Ra - the sun - could fall upon the heads of those who were in prayer and supplication within the temple, like the Parsee temples of today.

Le Plongeon found records in Yucatan stating that,

"the Hieratic head of the Land of Mu prophesied its destruction, and that some, heeding the prophecy, left and went to the colonies where they were saved."

Le Plongeon's death occurred many years before Schliemann published the Lhasa Record.
 


UXMAL TEMPLE

This temple is situated at Uxmal, Yucatan, and has been named by Le Plongeon "The Temple of Sacred Mysteries." On its walls there is an important inscription which reads:

"This edifice is a commemorative monument dedicated to the memory of Mu - the Lands of the West - That Land of Kui - the birthplace of our sacred mysteries."

This temple is built facing west, where the Motherland once stood.

The inscription quoted is a full corroboration of the second extract from the Troano Manuscript, and confirms other records which state that the Motherland lay to the west of America. Further - and this is most important - it tells us that the religious teachings of this temple came from there. So that whatever we find here we know originated in Mu, the Lands of the West. With this information, we can trace the Egyptian religion and learning back to its source.
 


XOCHICALO PYRAMID, MEXICO

This pyramid is situated 60 miles southwest of Mexico City, and antedates all of the Egyptian pyramids by thousands of years.

 

The picture (between pages 160-1) shows inscriptions in the form of a pictorial tableau, which is divided into two sections. The upper - or may I call it the Cornice? - relates how the destruction of Mu - the Lands of the West occurred, and what forces were active in her destruction, also the origin of these forces.

A great part of this section of the tableau has been lost by the falling of stones, and some of what remain are so weathered and broken as to be unreadable; therefore, I shall not attempt to give the exact legend, but rather the import of it only.

The lower or main part of the tableau is in fairly good condition for reading, although many parts are too weathered to get all of the details. We can, however, give a general deciphering, but with many details left out.

 

Part I - The Cornice

1. An elongated square the hieratic letter M, alphabetical symbol of Mu - the Motherland. On one side are two scallops, the two islands which, with Mu, made up the Lands of the West.

2. Volcanic forces working within and underneath Mu tearing her to pieces.

3. The Maya "Tian Chilians" symbol of the Four Great Primary Forces, shown as coming direct from the Infinite - His "command," "desire," "order," etc.

4. The head or point of an arrow, spear or javelin - the symbol showing the forces are active. Through the spearhead is a line dividing it, the symbol showing that it is not one of the Primary Forces, but a subsidiary, coming out of a primary.

5. This is a compound symbol dividable as follows:

a. Elongated square symbol of Mu.
b. The four pillars supporting her.
c. The forces have caused the pillars to give way, and Mu is being carried down.

6. A human figure, denoting that human beings went down with the land.

 

 


Part 2 - The Submersion

1a. A conventional serpent - symbol of the great waters. It is coiled in the shape of the hieratic letter U, symbol of an abyss - an abyss of water.
1b. The eyes of this serpent are closed. Being closed, they symbolize sleep, rest. The waters are at rest, having found their own level.

2. The numeral three - Mu's numeral symbol.

3. One of the symbols for the Lands of the West. Being below the surface cuts 2 and 3 say Mu - the Lands of the West - has been submerged.

4. The tail of the serpent, the waters, is curved inwards and down embracing in its coil a human figure; saying that the inhabitants went down with the land.

There are other details in this tableau, but they are in too poor a condition to warrant an attempt at reading.

Supplementing the foregoing with other inscriptions on this pyramid, I will give its legend.

Legend. This pyramid is erected as a monument to Mu, the Motherland of Man, the Lands of the West, to commemorate her memory and her destruction with all mankind thereon. The pillars that supported her were attacked by great forces, they gave way, then Mu and all her people sank into the watery abyss.

Plato's Timeus says that this Mexican pyramid is an exact model of the Sacred Hill of Atlantis on which was built the Temple of Poseidon.

Plato lived 400 B.C. and yet we are being taught that Columbus discovered America!!
 


Akab-Dzib

In the city of Chichen Itza, there is a slab which forms the lintel of the door of the inner chamber at the southern end of the building called Akab-Dzib. Here we have "the awful, the tenebrous record."

 

This slab is a description of The Lands of the West being shaken to their foundations by earthquakes and then engulfed.
 


Maya Beliefs

The Mayas of Yucatan regarded the West as "the region of darkness, the place where the souls of the dead returned to the bosoms of their ancestors," as shown in Codex Cortesianus.
 


Valmiki, "Ramayana"

Vol. I, page 342

"The Maya adepts, the Naacals, starting from the land of their birth in the east, as missionaries of religion and learning, went first to Burma and there taught the Nagas. From Burma they went to the Deccan in India, whence they carried their religion and learning to Babylonia and to Egypt."

 

Burma

At Angkor Thorn, Cambodia, may be seen conventional beasts that archaeologists have called "lions."

 

All are placed facing the east, looking toward the place where the Motherland once stood. That these beasts refer to her there can be no question, as they are saying "Mu." This is shown by their conventional mouths, elongated squares, one of the forms of the letter M in the hieratic alphabet of Mu, and one of her symbols.
 


Plutarch - Life of Solon

"Souchis, the High Priest of Sais told Solon [600 B.C.], also Psenophis, a priest of Heliopolis, that 9000 years before, the relations of the Egyptians with the inhabitants of the Lands of the West had been interrupted because of cataclysms destroying the intervening country, and - the mud that had made the sea impassable since the destruction of Atlantis by earthquakes and submersion."

It is here shown beyond controversy that the Lands of the West were to the west of America, because America was the "intervening lands" that prevented travel to them when she was made impassable by cataclysms.

Again it is clearly established that neither Atlantis nor the intervening country was the Lands of the West, nor was Atlantis the intervening land, because the intervening land was made impassable only, while Atlantis was submerged.

I shall next make a survey of the South Sea Islands and note the stone remains found on them, also the extraordinary and astounding legends found among the savages and semi-savages there.

In going out on the Pacific Ocean from America we shall be traveling west - from America. The reader will kindly note, that out on the Pacific Ocean we are west - of Yucatan; remembering this, it will enable him to appreciate certain records that hereafter appear.

Among the specks of land forming the Polynesian and other groups, we shall find links that joined, in prehistoric times, the civilization of America with the civilizations of Southern and Eastern Asia, and, eventually, the various civilizations throughout the world. Although the journey is long, it will be interesting and full of astounding surprises.

 

Where we shall look for the remains of an ancient civilization, and where we shall find it, will be on islands that within the memory of living man were inhabited by cannibalistic savages, many of which are cannibalistic to this day.

Yet these cannibals, as I have shown, are the descendants of highly civilized peoples. The forefathers of the present Polynesians, now savages and semi-savages, were once the center of the earth's civilization.

 

 

Valmiki, Ramayana

Vol. I, page 353

"The Mayas were mighty navigators, whose ships traveled from the Western to the Eastern oceans, and from the Southern to the Northern seas in ages so remote the sun had not yet risen above the horizon.

"That likewise, being learned architects, they built great cities and palaces."

 

 

The Great Stone Remains of the Pacific Islands

Throughout the length and breadth of the Pacific Ocean are scattered groups of small islands.

 

On scores of them are the remains of a great civilization. There are great stone temples, cyclopean stone walls, stone-lined canals, stone-paved roads and immense monoliths and statuary - works that required continental resources and workmen of skill. Yet we now find them not on a great continent, but on mere specks of land inhabited by savages and semi-savages.

These great ruins appeal alike to layman and scientist as being the work of a great past civilization that existed ages ago, about which we know nothing.

These remains are so many, so scattered, that in attempting to enumerate and describe them it is hard to tell where to begin or how to end. It would require volumes instead of a few pages to describe them all. I can, therefore, give only a mere glance at what deserves a long and detailed study. The description will be popular, not technical.

On many of the islands the remains are so overrun with vegetation and covered up with soil that it is difficult to find them. I do not believe that one-half are visible; they are simply overgrown mounds.

Another difficulty with which the explorer has to contend is the savage inhabitants; they all have a superstitious dread of going near any of the great ruins. They believe them to be haunted by ghosts and evil spirits, which they call mauli, so that it is next to impossible to get any of them to guide you to the ruins or even to tell where they are. A good way to discover their whereabouts, however, is to have a native show you over the island; but, go your own way and do not follow him.

 

Simply take him along to tell you the best road home. If you are approaching a ruin he will try to make you go in an opposite direction. Should you persist in going on, when you get near the ruin he will run away and leave you. Then you will know you are close to the object of your search.

I shall make my start with the remains on Easter Island. They are better known than any of the others.
 


EASTER ISLAND

Easter Island is situated at the southeastern extremity of Polynesia, 2100 miles from the coast of South America. Its greatest length is 13 miles and its greatest width 7 miles.

On this little island there are at present, all told, 555 carved stones, colossal statues, as well as other examples of the art of a great prehistoric race.

W. J. Thomson, whom I believe to be the best authority on what is found on Easter Island, says:

"The largest image is in one of the quarries in an unfinished condition and measures 70 feet in height; the smallest was one found in a cave, and was about 3 feet long. The majority of them are from 15 to 18 feet high. It is supposed these images represent distinguished personages, and are intended as monuments to their memory."

The tops of some of these towering stones are capped with huge spheres, which show red in the distance.

 

Many of them were carved from the red igneous rock forming the sides of the now silent volcanoes. One of these spheres, which is carved out of a red sandstone, measures 12 feet in diameter. It is to be seen at the quarry at Terrai Hills. Besides the statuary on Easter Island there are several immense platform-like accumulations of cut and dressed stone.

These piles are about 30 feet high and from 200 to 300 feet in length. They are awaiting shipment to some other part of the continent for the building of temples and palaces.

Near the extinct volcanoes Rana Roraka and Rana Rao are the remains of what was once a large stone temple. As the fallen stones lie, they outline a structure of about 100 feet long and 20 feet wide.

Walls are still standing 5 feet high and 5 feet thick. Some of the stones of this structure have carved upon them figures which were the sacred symbols used in the first religion of man.

W. J. Thomson:

"There are in existence about 7 tablets, all that are left of a vast number, bearing the written story of Easter Island."

Thomson, with the aid of an old native, the only one on the island who knew the meaning of the glyphs on these tablets, deciphered and translated some of them.

 

Herewith is Thomson's translation of two:

 

Tablet I.

"When this island was first created and became known to our forefathers, the land was crossed with roads beautifully paved with flat stones. These stones were laid together so nicely that no rough edges were exposed. Coffee [mistranslation] trees were growing close together along the borders of the roads. They met overhead and their branches were laced together like muscles.

"Heke was the builder of the roads, and it was he who sat in the place of honor, where the roads branched away in every direction.

"In that happy land, that beautiful land where Romaha formerly lived with his beloved Hangarva.

"Turaki used to listen to the voices of the birds and feed them.

"In that beautiful land governed the gods from Heaven, who lived in the waters when it was cold.

"There the black and white pointed spider would have mounted to Heaven, but he was held back by the bitterness of the cold."

Remains of these roads are to be seen on Easter and many other of the South Sea Islands.
 


Tablet 2, entitled "The Great King":

"What power has the Great King on land? He has the power to make the plants grow and to change the color of the sky.

"All hail the power of The Great King who makes us lenient to the young plants, to admire the different colors of the sky and to behold the clouds that rise.

"All hail the power of The Great King who enables us to appreciate the blessings of bright stars, the lowering clouds, the gentle dew, the falling rain and the light of the sun and the moon.

"What power has The Great King on land?

"He has the power to populate the earth to create both kings and subjects.

"All hail to the power of The Great King, who hath created the human beings, given authority to kings, and created loyal subjects.

"What power has The Great King?

"He has the power to create the lobsters, white bait, eels, ape-fish and everything in the sea.

"What power has The Great King over the seas?

"He hath the power to create the mighty fish that swim in deep water.

"All hail the power of The Great King who enables us to withstand the attacks of the maggots, flies, worms, fleas and all manner of insects."

A legend tell the following:

"This little island had once been a part of a great continent of land, crossed with many roads, beautifully paved with flat stones. The roads were cunningly constructed to represent the plan of the web of the gray and black pointed spider, and no man could discover the beginning or the end thereof."

W. J. Thomson:

"At the south end of the island there are from 80 to 100 stone houses, built in a regular line against a terrace of rock or earth, which in some cases form the back walls of the building. The walls of these peculiar houses average 5 feet in thickness and 4 feet in height. They are 4 feet broad and 13 feet long.

"The doorways are tiny affairs, not more than 20 inches high and 19 inches wide. The walls are formed by layers of irregular stones. These latter are often painted red, white and black, showing birds, faces and figures.

"Near the houses the rocks on the banks of the sea-cliff are carved in strange shapes, resembling human faces, tortoises, birds, fishes and mythical animals."

The history of Easter Island since the white man discovered it forms one long scene of tragedies.
 


COOK GROUP

The Cook group of islands lies directly south of Hawaii about 40 degrees. It is also about halfway between Tahiti and Fiji, but south of a direct line. I shall note two islands of this group.
 


RARATONGA ISLAND

On this island there is a small section of the road referred to in the Easter Island tablet and legend.
 


MANGAIA ISLAND

This is the southernmost island of the Cook group and about half the size of Easter Island.

 

On it are remains similar to those on Easter Island. As there are no quarries, or evidences of their being chiseled on this island, it is presumable that they were brought here.
 


TONGA-TABU

Tonga-tabu is a coral atoll belonging to the Tonga group.

 

There is not a particle of natural stone upon it, nothing but corals. Here on this patch of coral we find an immense stone monument, set up in the form of an arch. It consists of two huge uprights weighing about 70 tons each, which are bound together at the top with another stone weighing about 25 tons.

There being no native stone on the island and the nearest available stone being over 200 miles away, it leaves open a wide field for speculation as to what sort of ships the ancients had to carry such enormous weights, how they landed them from the ships, and what contrivances they had to set them up in place, as we now find them, after they had been safely landed.
 


THE GILBERT AND MARSHALL GROUPS

On several of the islands composing these two groups are found tall, slender pyramids built of stone.

The natives use the sacred symbols of the Motherland as ornamentations without knowing how they obtained the designs, or their meanings. I have shown a prominent ornamentation from Arorai Island - the fan of Princess Arawali with the royal escutcheon of Mu.
 


THE CAROLINE GROUP

As regards prehistoric remains, nowhere throughout the Pacific Ocean are there to be found such astounding ruins as on the Caroline Islands.

 

An added interest is that they lie "one moon's journey towards the rising sun (from Burma)," where according to the Naacal tablets and Valmiki, the Motherland of Man once stood, the spot whence came the first settlers in Burma and India.
 


PANAPE

On Panape stands what I consider to be the most important ruin in the South Sea Islands. It consists of the ruins of a great temple, a structure 300 feet long by 60 feet wide, with walls still standing (in 1874) 30 feet high, and at the ground 5 feet in thickness.

On the walls are the remains of carvings of many of the sacred symbols of the Motherland.

This temple is connected with canals and earthworks, and has vaults, passages and platforms. The whole is built of basaltic stone.

Below the pavements of the great quadrangle, on opposite sides, are two passages or gateways, each about 10 feet square. These are pierced through the outer wall with passageways leading down to the canal. Within the great quadrangle is a central pyramidal chamber, unquestionably the holy of holies.

According to the natives, many generations ago this temple was occupied for a time by the shipwrecked crew of a Spanish buccaneer. Relics of these outlaws are still being found in one of the vaults which they used as a storehouse.

The natives cannot be induced to go near the ruin, because they say it is haunted by ghosts and evil spirits, which they call mauli.

Other ruins also are on Panape, some of them close to the seashore, others on tops of mounds or hills, or are to be found on cleared spaces towards the center of the island, but all command views of the ocean. On one of the cleared spaces there is a ruinous heap of stones covering between 5 and 6 acres; it is situated on a sort of tableland. Around it there appears to have been a ditch or a canal.

At the corners, which were at the cardinal points, the ruins assume tall mounds, indicating by their various distribution that the building was square.

To my mind the various ruins on Panape are ruins of one of the Motherland's capital cities, one of the Seven Sacred Cities. It is impossible to estimate the population, but it must have been very large - a hundred thousand at least.
 


SWALLOW ISLAND - 12 east of Panape

On this small island is a pyramid of similar construction to that found on Guam and Tinian.

On the west side of the island is a vast quadrangular enclosure of stone, containing several mounds. Probably if the coverings of guano and soil were removed edifices of some kind would be found.
 


KUSAI ISLAND, southeast corner of the group

On this and the surrounding islands are found similar ruins to Panape, but not nearly so extensive.

On the south side of the harbor of this latter island are several canals lined with stone. They cross each other at right angles. Between their intersections are artificially made islands, which originally had buildings on them. One tower still remaining is about 35 feet high.

Native traditions of this island say:

"The people who once lived here were very powerful. They had large vessels in which they made voyages far distant, east and west, taking many moons to complete a voyage."

Does this not entirely agree with Valmiki when he says,

"The Mayas were mighty navigators, whose ships passed from the eastern to the western oceans and from the southern to the northern seas"?

LELE ISLAND is separated from Kusai Island by a narrow channel. On this island is a conical hill surrounded by a wall 18 or 20 feet high and of enormous thickness.

 

The whole of this island presents a series of cyclopean enclosures and lines of great walls. Some of the enclosures are parallelograms 200 by 100 feet in extent. There is a very large one between 300 and 400 feet in length and over 150 feet wide.

The walls generally are 12 feet thick, and within are vaults, artificial caverns and secret passageways.

The natives of this corner of the Carolines were extremely hostile to the white man and were cannibals of the worst description in 1874. Possibly they have been tamed down a bit since then.
 


KINGSMILL ISLANDS

On Tapiteau Island of this group are found the same tall, slender pyramids of stone as are found in the Gilbert and Marshall groups.
 


NAVIGATOR ISLANDS

On these islands are found great stone structures. On one of them there is a remarkable structure on the top of a 1500-foot hill, and near the edge of a precipice which has a sheer drop of 500 feet. The structure is a platform built of huge blocks of igneous stone. It is 150 feet in diameter and 20 feet high. On one side of this structure is the precipice and on the other a ditch, which originally might have been 18 or 20 feet deep.
 


LADRONE, OR MARIANA GROUP (Guam)

The relics on these islands have a character of their own.

 

They consist principally of solid stone, truncated pyramidal columns, usually about 20 feet high, including the hemispherical stone or capital, and ten feet square at their bases. Some are capped with a stone hemispherical in shape, in other cases these stones lie on the ground as if they had been shaken off by seismic disturbance. On the island of Tinian they are arranged in columns.

Extract from article by Larrin Tarr Gill:

"Three of the latter have fallen with their tasa still intact; three are completely shattered and the capitals of two lie as though shaken from their supports by some violent shudder of the earth. Shaped like truncated pyramids and capped by hemispherical stones, the pillars are 18 feet in circumference at the base, 11 feet high, and taper at the top to a little over 15 feet around, on which the capitals stand 5 feet high and 6 feet thick. Hewn from rough, hard, sedimentary rock, each monument weighs close to 30 tons and the two parallel lines of columns, which originally stood 7 feet apart formed a ground plan almost 54 feet long by 10 wide."


HAWAII

"About 30 miles from Hilo there is a great ruin on a hill called Kukii. There are no stones on this hill except those which have been carried there.

"The summit was leveled and squared, and the building laid out according to the cardinal points and the floor paved. Two square blocks of stone in an upright position, about 15 or 16 feet apart, range exactly east and west.

"The upper part of the hill was terraced, and the terraces had been faced with hewn stone. The stones were perfect squares, the smallest three feet in diameter, while others were larger. Every stone was faced and polished on all sides, so that they could perfectly fit together. There is still about 30 feet of facing left on the lower terrace partly in position.

"On the western side there was a stairway running from the base to the top of the hill, a height of nearly 300 feet.

"On Kona is another ruin."

 

THE MARQUESAS

There are several noteworthy ruins on the Marquesan Islands. Apparently no one has ever felt inclined to make an examination of them. I believe the fact that they are there has never before been published.

The foregoing is a long list of Titanic stone remains, and yet I have not enumerated one-half of what are to be found on the South Sea Islands. From this evidence the logical mind can form only one conclusion, and that is: At one time in the earth's history there was a great continent of land in the Pacific Ocean which embraced all of the groups of islands where prehistoric remains are to be found. This great continent had an exceedingly high civilization.

That continent was Mu, the Motherland of Man. That her name was Mu and her geographical position are attested by the records of India, Uighur, Egypt, Mayax, Peru and of the cliff dwellers of North America.

These cyclopean remains are her pathetic withered fingers that refused to go down with her broken back and mangled body.
 


NEW ZEALAND

The Maoris, natives of New Zealand, are rich in legends and traditions of the dim past.

Many of the ancient sacred symbols are also found among them. The most prominent is the Tat or Totem Pillar, which they erect at the entrance of their villages. In employing the name Tat I am employing the Egyptian. These pillars were used by the Mayas, Incas, Atlantians, Egyptians, Chaldeans, and other ancient peoples.

 

The meaning of the Tat or Totem Pillar is given in my section on the ancient Sacred Symbols
 


AUSTRALIA

Australia appears to be particularly bare of ancient records, legends and traditions, and this is not to be wondered at if my geological deductions about Australia are correct.

Geometrical figures have been found rudely carved on some of the boomerangs of the Northern tribes. The bush-men of Northern Australia are probably the lowest type of humanity on earth, lower than the ordinary forest beasts.

An Australian cave painting has been found which, without doubt, antedates their low savagery.

There are three remarkable objects in the painting: the first is Ra - the Sun - and the second the numeral 3, symbol of Mu, shown twice, and the third an axe.

When the English first settled in Australia, axes of any description were unknown to the savage natives.

I have never heard of any legends or traditions having been found among the native Australians.

After deciphering and translating the symbols found carved on the stones of the ancient Polynesian remains of the temples and statuary, and in the quarries among the unfinished work, I felt at the time that among the South Sea Islands, and especially in the division called Polynesia, traditions might be found that would prove of the greatest value in connecting the past civilization of the South Sea Islands with a civilization of a later date, of which we have at least some fragmentary records.

The great stone monuments existing among the South Sea Islands have always been a puzzle to ethnologists. All have been convinced that there must have been a great civilization there, and then,

"the shadow of time that was, became darkness; the new day, the beginning, as civilization now calls it, dawned thereafter."

Assumptions have been made that the white Polynesians came down from the original white race and it seems to be supported by records and traditions found in various parts of the earth: Mexico, Central America, India and Egypt.

In Central America and Mexico there are traditions stating that the first people who inhabited those countries were a white race.1

 

1 See Guatemalan tradition quoted on page 173.

 

The Mayas of Mayax, those who built the great edifices whose ruins now dot the land, were a white race. Temple inscriptions in Yucatan say they came there from lands that lay to the west of America.

 

Polynesia lies to the west of America.

The Guatemalan tradition also shows the white race advancing to the east from America.

Hindu records tell us that the central parts of India (the Deccan) were first colonized by a white race called Mayas, who came to India via Burma, and that their motherland was one moon's journey towards the rising sun, east of Burma. Polynesia lies to the east of Burma. It is thus shown that those coming to America came from the west, and those coming to India came from the east. This is conclusive evidence that the original home of the white race was a land that lay geographically between America and Asia.

Among these people I find a tradition of the Creation, corresponding in all material details with that of the ancients throughout the world:

Ellis, "Polynesian Researches," Vol. I, page 100:

"In the Sandwich Islands (Hawaii) 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."

This is the cosmogony of all the ancients. All say water covered the face of the earth, and that life started from a cosmic egg laid in the sea.
 


SAMOA

The Samoans have a tradition that "In the beginning the whole earth was covered with water."

The Flood. - O'Brien says in Mystic Isles of the South Seas:

"In most of Polynesia there are legends of a universal flood from which but few escaped."

Adam and Eve. - "The Polynesians had very fixed ideas upon the origin of the universe and man."


HAWAII

"Taaroa made man out of red earth Araea and breathed into his nostrils. He made woman from man's bones and called her Ivi."

(In the Polynesian language Ivi is pronounced Eve-y.)

Cain and Abel. - A Tonga tradition states that "the son of the first man killed his brother."


NEW ZEALAND

A tradition of the Maoris states,

"that the son of the first man killed his brother."

Tower of Babel. - "In Fiji is still shown the site where a vast tower was built because the Fijians were curious and wanted to peep into the moon to discover if it was inhabited."

Polynesian Cosmogony. - Tahiti: "Taaroa, whose name was spelt differently in separate archipelagos, was the father of Tahiti an cosmogony. His wife was Hina - the earth, and his son Oro was the ruler of the world. Tane the Hualine god was a brother of Oro and his equal."

This corresponds with the cosmogony of the most ancient, namely, a Trinity or a Triune Godhead.
 


MYSTIC FORCES

During the time of the earth's first civilization, many abstruse sciences were known which today are not known. They have been lost between the two civilizations.

The adepts of the ancients could walk through fire without being scorched, as related in the Bible and Popol Vuh.

There is reliable testimony that South Pacific Islanders have been known to walk barefooted on red-hot stones, without being burnt. The same thing has been witnessed in Hawaii and I have personally seen it done in the Fiji Islands.

A few years since a report was made that in Samoa the blind were made to see through their flesh. The report was sneered at by scientists, and the public generally looked upon it as a newspaper story, a traveler's lie.

The following from the New York World, reporting from Paris the accomplishment of the same phenomenon, answers, I think, the scientific sneers that were handed out when the report came from the savages of Samoa.

 

This article is as follows :

"Not only have you eyes in the back of your head, but your body is simply covered with them, and they can all be used if trained properly.

"This conclusion is reached by several scientists here who have witnessed experiments by Jules Remain, writer of a book on the subject. They contend, with M. Romain, that just beneath the skin are 'ocelles' - microscopic organs united to the central nervous system - and that these are dormant eyes.

"M. Romain, it is claimed, has succeeded in training a number of persons to use these eyes effectively. They can distinguish colors and read while heavily blindfolded. Some can see with cheeks and fingers, some with their noses. One subject was able to distinguish a hat four yards away.

"These results, it is asserted, are accomplished after the subject has been placed in a state of great mental concentration not allied to hypnotism.

"While the first experiment is not apt to show much result, second tests have shown in some subjects an ability to 'read' playing cards blindfolded after three hours of concentration. The ability of the subject, it is said, improves with each succeeding test."

Thus it is now demonstrated that the blind can be made to see through the skin, but the Samoan practiced it thousands of years ago.

The foregoing traditions and legends are astounding, and at first glance must stagger one, for here among savages who have been shut off from the outside world up to within 300 years and most of them within 200 years, we are met with the fact that they have among themselves legends and traditions about the Creation and the early history of man that are identical with the legends and traditions found in the Bible.
 


GREECE

A few references to the Motherland of Man are to be found among the writings of the old Greek philosophers.

In the year 403 B. C., during the archonship of Euclid, the Greek grammarians rearranged the Athenian alphabet in its present form. The Greek alphabet today is composed of Maya vocables forming an epic that relates the destruction of Mu. The translation of the Greek alphabet is as follows:
 


THE GREEK ALPHABET
The alphabet of the Greeks is an epic composed of Cara-Maya vocals, and is a commemorative memorial to their forefathers who lost their lives at the destruction of Mu.

In Plato's Timeus and Critias we find this reference to the lost continent:

"The Land of Mu had ten peoples."

Proclus wrote:

"The Lands of the West had ten peoples."

Here we find two of the old Greek philosophers writing about the Motherland of Man. One uses its hieratical name, the other its geographical name, but both assert that there were ten separate peoples.

 

 

Straight Reading. - Heavily break the waters over the plains. They cover the low places. Where there are obstructions shores form. The earth is struck with water ; the waters spread on all that lives and moves, the foundations give way and submerged is the land of Mu. The peaks only appear above the water, whirlwinds blow around until gradually comes cold air. Before where existed valleys are great depths, cold tanks. In circular places mud banks formed.

 

A mouth opens, out of which vapors pour forth and volcanic sediments.

The Greek Alphabet written in the Hieratic Characters of Mu

 

This is written to read from left to right. The ancients generally wrote to read from right to left, when the writing was in horizontal lines.

 

 

Origin of the Greek Cross

The Greek Cross as it is known has always been an enigma and a puzzle to scientists on account of its being found in so many inscriptions which are unreadable to our achaeologists. It appears in inscriptions in Yucatan and Central America especially.

Winter, in his work "Guatemala," page 156, says:

"The mysterious symbol of the Greek cross, which has also been found on the stones of Quirigua and Copan, has been the cause of much speculation among scholars."

No one, apparently, can solve this simple problem.

The Greek Cross, Fig. I, was the central figure of the Royal Escutcheon of Mu - the Empire of the Sun.

 

The hieroglyph is a phrase in the mother tongue of Mu, reading U-luumil (pronounced Oo-loo'-oom'-il).

 

Translated into English it is:

"the land of, the country of," and by extension, "the Empire of" or "the Kingdom of."

So that in all of the inscriptions where it appears, it represents one of the foregoing phrases, depending on what comes before and what comes after it.

The Greek cross confirms the accuracy of my deciphering of the Greek alphabet; the Greek alphabet confirms the accuracy of my deciphering of the cross; and the two confirm the existence of Mu - the Empire of the Sun - and that she was the Motherland of the Greeks.
