THE ORIGIN OF
FOR the benefit of those who have not read
The Lost Continent of Mu
a short synopsis of its contents follows.
The Land of Mu was a large continent situated in the Pacific Ocean
between America and Asia, its center lying somewhat south of the
equator. Basing its area on the remains which are still above water,
it would have been about six thousand miles from east to west, and
about three thousand from north to south. All the rocky islands,
individually and in groups, scattered over the Pacific Ocean were
once part of the continent of Mu.
About twelve thousand years ago
cataclysmic earthquakes rent Mu asunder. She became a fiery vortex,
and the waters of the Pacific rushed in, making a watery grave for a
vast civilization and sixty millions of people.
...are the pathetic fingers of that great
land, standing today as sentinels to a silent grave.
The existence of this great continent is confirmed by:
Naacal tablets, books, writings,
inscriptions and legends found in India, China, Burma, Tibet
Ancient Maya books,
inscriptions, symbols and legends found in Yucatan and
Remains, inscriptions, symbols
and legends found among the Pacific Islands.
Stone tablets found in Mexico
near Mexico City.
Cliff dwellers' writings and
inscriptions found in Western North America.
Books of old Greek philosophers.
Books and writings of the
Legends throughout the world.
These confirmations are all given in The
Lost Continent of Mu.
They show that:
There was once a large continent
of land in the Pacific Ocean called the Land of Mu.
On this great continent man made
his advent on earth about two hundred thousand years ago.
The Land of Mu and the Biblical
Garden of Eden were one and the same land.
Both the Naacal and the Mexican tablets
show clearly that man is a special creation. They also show in what
way he differs from all other creations. An account of the creation
is given in both sets of tablets which is very similar to the
At the time of Mu's destruction her people were in an exceedingly
high state of civilization; as regards science she was far ahead of
the present time. (No wonder! She was at the end of two hundred
thousand years of experience and development. -We today cannot claim
The great civilizations of the old Oriental empires - India, Egypt,
Babylonia, etc. -were only the dying embers of Mu's great
civilization. They were her children, who withered and died without
All tablets, inscriptions and writings which I used in The Lost
Continent of Mu are accompanied by keys for reading them. Every
assertion made is accompanied by reasonable proof. The facts are
there. The theories will have to take care of themselves.
I wish it understood that what is revealed of the past in my
writings must not be considered discoveries by me. I am simply
stating what I find in writings that run from 12,000 to 70,000 years
ago if the mode of keeping time was correct. What is disclosed in
these writings is startling, yet archaeology and geological
phenomena corroborate the facts without calling to our aid legends
which also confirm them.
Lao Tse, the Chinese sage 600 B.C., speaks
of the great learning and advancement of his prehistoric
The ancients were wise and thoughtful for those who were to come
after them. They left indestructible records written on clay and
stone. This wisdom is spoken of by Souchis priest of Sais to
the Greek, as recorded in Plutarch. These writings have been broken
up and many of them lost. As they were universal among the ancients,
scraps and fragments of them are found in all quarters of the earth.
When put together they supplement one another to a great extent, so
that by combining them we can make a beginning towards unraveling
the wonders of the earth's First Great Civilization.
For over fifty years I have been hunting these scraps and putting
them together so as to form the beginning of an intelligent tale of
the Creation and Man.—It rests with those who come after me to
complete the tale.
Relics that can be traced back as coming
directly from Mu, the Motherland, are extremely rare.
During the past few years I have been
singularly fortunate in finding two that are at least intimately
connected with Mu. Both are symbolic figures in bronze. They were
either made in the Motherland or in one of the ancient Uighur cities
before the eastern half of that great empire was destroyed by the
north running-wave of the last Magnetic Cataclysm which was the
This wave destroyed all the country over
which it ran, the people were drowned and the cities washed away or
buried under the drift. The Uighur Capital City today lies under
fifty feet of boulders, gravel and sand. It is situated in the Gobi
Desert, which today has large areas of rock only, the soil and
everything with it having been washed away by the "Flood."
I am using one of these relics as Plate I (see halftones between
pages 158-9). It is, without question, one of the two oldest bronzes
in existence. If Uighur, it is about 18,000 or 20,000 years old. If
from Mu, the age cannot be estimated.
This figure is a symbol of Mu as the great ruler. The fineness of
the workmanship is not to be found surpassed, and very seldom
equaled in any of the prominent jewelry stores in our big cities
today. Both symbols have been in America for about 150 years. I know
their history, but the less said about it the better, since in the
Oriental home from which they were taken, they were without question
The British Museum has three scepters which undoubtedly were
manufactured in Mu before she went down.
In Mu,1 the Motherland, there were ten distinct tribes.
Although they were physically easily differentiated, there were few
variations in language, and these only of a minor character. A
greater change is seen in their glyphs or writings.
1 Every letter in every word in
the ancient language of Mu is pronounced. Mu is pronounced Moo; A is
pronounced ah; U is pronounced oo as in moon; Ta is pronounced tah;
Tau is pronounced ta-oo.
In the Motherland each of her people occupied its own territory;
and, when various tribes took part in the colonization of a new
country, they did not settle down indiscriminately, but each tribe
took its own land and built its own cities as their fathers did in
They settled down adjoining each other
and formed a homogeneous whole.
This original form of isolation grew with time so that the tribes
eventually became separate peoples, and finally nations. And as the
isolation became greater, changes in language crept in.
