A compelling new portrait of the lost realm of Lemuria, the original motherland of humanity
• Contains the most extensive and up-to-date archaeological research on Lemuria
• Reveals a lost, ancient technology in some respects more advanced than modern science
• Provides evidence that the perennial philosophies have their origin in Lemurian culture
Before the Indonesian tsunami or Hurricane Katrina’s destruction of New Orleans, there was the destruction of Lemuria. Oral tradition in Polynesia recounts the story of a splendid kingdom that was carried to the bottom of the sea by a mighty “warrior wave”--a tsunami. This lost realm has been cited in numerous other indigenous traditions, spanning the globe from Australia to Asia to the coasts of both South and North America. It was known as Lemuria or Mu, a vast realm of islands and archipelagoes that once sprawled across the Pacific Ocean. Relying on 10 years of research and extensive travel, Frank Joseph offers a compelling picture of this motherland of humanity, which he suggests was the original Garden of Eden.
Using recent deep-sea archaeological finds, enigmatic glyphs and symbols, and ancient records shared by cultures divided by great distances that document the story of this sunken world, Joseph painstakingly re-creates a picture of this civilization in which people lived in rare harmony and possessed a sophisticated technology that allowed them to harness the weather, defy gravity, and conduct genetic investigations far beyond what is possible today. When disaster struck Lemuria, the survivors made their way to other parts of the world, incorporating their scientific and mystical skills into the existing cultures of Asia, Polynesia, and the Americas. Totem poles of the Pacific Northwest, architecture in China, the colossal stone statues on Easter Island, and even the perennial philosophies all reveal their kinship to this now-vanished civilization.
the ancient past, bearing all the gifts of the high civilization he left behind. Vanderveer’s camera quickly passed over two or three other similarly monumental buildings nearby, then revealed nothing more but typical ocean bottom. The chance encounter had lasted less than one minute. In all the excitement of its surprise discovery, however, bearings were neglected and positioning forgotten, frustrating repeated attempts to relocate the sunken city. But the videotapes had faithfully recorded the
of the Lemurians, inasmuch as a fundamental principle of their understanding was that God, or the creator of all things, revealed to man all knowledge as a process of evolving man to the same degree of understanding as possessed by God. Therefore, the acquirement of knowledge was considered the acquirement of spiritual attunement, and growth of knowledge was looked upon reverentially, instead of as a commercial asset. Hence the Lemurians’ observation and subsequent application of natural laws in
change. If these sites were the only such evidence, they might be dismissed as the lonely outposts of some foreign civilization that established itself in isolation, utterly alien to anything known elsewhere. But additional evidence on behalf of that lost science has indeed been found, most dramatically at another obscure speck of territory in the southwestern Pacific. Known until 1978 as the Isle of Pines, Kunie (pronounced KOO-nya) is inhabited by 1,500 Melanesian residents living on
ART MUSEUM, OAHU Particularly gratifying moments for students of the past occur when a story long regarded as nothing more than legendary turns out to be true. Such a moment came in October 2004 with a discovery that not only radically altered present understanding of human origins, but also brought to life a myth repeated by native Hawaiians. Four hundred and sixty-two years before, they had told a Spanish explorer, Enrique Gaetano, the first modern European to visit their islands, that they
Titicaca’s saltwater and pre-lake sunken ruins, Tiahuanaco’s uninhabitable natural environment and six-foot-plus deposition of sediment, Puma Punku’s widely scattered megalithic blocks—all bespeak the establishment of sophisticated urban centers built at sea level during the deeply ancient past before they were suddenly thrust to the tops of newly formed mountains. Wilkins observed that Lake Titicaca “has a chalky deposit of ancient seaweeds, with lime, about two yards deep, which indicates that
