I have asserted that the civilization of Mu dates back to more than 50,000 years ago. Now let us see on what foundation I base such date.

Le Plongeon found in the center of the mausoleum of Cay, the high priest and eldest son of King Can, at Chichen Itza, Yucatan, a carving of a serpent having twelve heads, with an inscription saying this serpent was a symbol of the twelve Maya dynasties that had reigned over Mayax previous to the Can dynasty, their combined reigns covering a period of 18,000 years.

The last King Can lived 16,000 years ago, as proved by the Troano Manuscript. Add 16,000 to 18,000 years and we find that kings reigned over Mayax 34,000 years ago.

The length of the Can dynasty is not known. There were, however, at least six kings, and there might have been a dozen or more, so that an approximate time of 35,000 years may be reasonably accepted as the time when the first Mayax king reigned.

Mayax was one of Mu's colonial empires and had advanced to that status from a mere settlement. Such a radical step takes time, so that Mu's civilization must necessarily be much older than 35,000 years.

These twelve dynasties of kings reigning 18,000 years are confirmed in the Chinese book Tchi.

Japan also has a record stating that twelve dynasties of kings reigned 18,000 years ago, and an old Hindu tablet refers to twelve dynasties of kings whose combined reigns aggregated 18,000 years, and the same fact is mentioned in an ancient Hindu manuscript.

In addition to these records, there are numerous legends, both in India and China, which refer to twelve dynasties of kings whose combined reigns aggregated 18,000 years.

Not one of these records, however, except the Chichen Itza inscription, gives the slightest idea where these kings reigned.

Manetho, the Egyptian priest-historian, in one of his papyri, writes:

"The reign of the Sages of Atlantis was 13,900 years."

Atlantis was submerged 11,500 years ago.


Now let us add 11,500 to 13,900 and we find that Atlantis was governed by kings 25,000 years ago. The first king of Atlantis commenced his reign 25,400 years ago, and the first king of Mayax 34,000 years ago. Time between the two - 8500 years. Granting the same time to have elapsed between the first emperor of Mu and the first king of Mayax, we can figure approximately that Mu was at the height of her magnificence 50,000 or more years ago.

The scientific world may possibly say that the foregoing is merely speculative, so let us bring geology in to help us, and, to quote John Tyndall's favorite expression, "clinch the point."

When were the mountains that succeeded the great Magnetic Cataclysm raised? If we believe the myths of geology, we should say hundreds of thousands of years ago, and some of them millions of years ago.

Now I am going to show you seven civilizations that were in existence before the mountains were raised, some of them thousands upon thousands of years before a single mountain appeared upon the face of the earth. So, according to geology, these civilizations which came out of Mu would date her civilization back hundreds of thousands of years. However, they do not, and geology, as usual, is wrong.

In the Capital Hill, Smyrna, Asia Minor, 500 feet above the level of the sea, are to be seen the remains of three prehistoric civilizations, one above the other, with a stratum of sand, gravel and boulders covering each civilization. These civilizations are not lying horizontally, but at an angle of 45 degrees (please see the halftones between pages 160-1).

Were it not for the fact that the civilizations are at an angle, following the angle of the mountain, our scientists might assert that they were built on top of the hill and had not been raised. Their angle, however, proves beyond all controversy that they existed before the mountains were raised.


What are the ages of these civilizations? I leave it to the scientific world to say; also the age of these mountains in Asia Minor.

Twenty-nine miles north of Mexico City, Niven has discovered three civilizations, buried one beneath the other, with strata of sand, gravel and boulders between them. These cities are more than 1000 feet above sea level, with mountains of from 5000 to 15,000 feet in altitude intervening between them and the sea. I have traced the boulders to a formation on the west coast of Mexico, and the lowest mountain between the cities and the source of the boulders is 5000 feet in height.

Did the ocean raise waves that were more than 5000 feet in height in ancient times, when multitudes thronged the streets of these cities, so that these boulders could be formed and hurled along to their final resting place? Or did Mexico borrow a glacier for the occasion in order that these boulders might be deposited where they now lie?

However, nothing of this sort happened down in Mexico. These cities were built before the mountains were raised, and, as is shown by tablets coming from them which I have deciphered and translated, they were Mu's colonies.

Geologically, the lowest city dates far back into the Tertiary Era and was in existence more than 50,000 years ago as a colony of Mu. Pictures and details of this archaeological discovery will be found in Chapter Eleven.

The last example is Tiahuanaco on Lake Titicaca in the Andes. Irrefutable evidences are present in and around this ancient city, which prove that when it was built the ground on which it stands was just above sea level. Now, however, it is 15,000 feet above the sea.

These facts are conclusive proofs that the civilization of Mu dates back more than 50,000 years.
