A True History of Ancient Civilizations Part II
“Greetings to the people of the earth and to you personally. Welcome back to Aureleus, and do not be too surprised at finding yourself standing in a section of this great city, which for a moment appears to you to be something like the section of the Egyptian architecture and civilization which you previously visited. Until your eyes become more accustomed to what is round you, I shall first identify myself as an individual who lived on the earth in the Grecian or Hellenic era, and served humanity as an historian, identified at that time by the name of Plutarch. Therefore, I have been most happy to accept the commission of conducting you on your next tour into this section of the great city. It has been purposely saved for one of the last portions of this transmission; and we wish to thank you one and all for being so patient with us while we gave the various transmission from the different scientists and philosophers who have lived on your earth at different times. It is most necessary that you clearly evaluate and place within your minds the proper concepts of your relationship to these higher dimensions. Now that you are becoming more accustomed to the brilliance and to the beauty about you, we shall go more into the actual investigation of these beautiful surroundings.
As you see, you are seated in a beautiful tropical garden, and before you appears to be a huge Egyptian temple. Although similar, there are some differences, however, which you will notice in the construction between these and the Egyptian temples. These great temples and buildings and pavements and all which you see about you are factual presentations of the buildings which are now, and have been in existence in your own Western Hemisphere. I am referring to the land which lies between the Mexican border of your United States and the southern dimensions of Peru and Ecuador, in South America, particularly in the area around Mexico City and in the Yucatan Peninsula. There you will find today the remnants of a vast and beautiful civilization, that is equalled only by the Egyptian or by some of the civilizations which existed in India.
In the science of archaeology, as it exists in the earth concepts of today, there has been much labor to uncover and to classify the civilizations of the different periods and epochs of time; yet there are still many gaps in these histories and much information that is yet missing. Consequently, it is apparent that in bridging these various eras and epochs of time in civilization, it indeed presents a varied and complex problem to properly integrate these different times and periods in your own concept. It is for these purposes, as you look about you and see the beautiful buildings, that I shall go somewhat into the background of this civilization, to see how it evolved in its thousand years or so before the time of the man Jesus. It was not built, as was commonly supposed, from the migrant population of Atlantis; instead it was actually conceived and built as a direct interpretation of the artisans and craftsmen under the direction of an Egyptian, who was known to the Toltecs as Quetzacoatl, or the Many Feathered Serpent.
In order to learn more accurately how these civilizations existed on your earth during that era, we shall put aside, momentarily, the Aryan concept of the Shamballa, and go back to the period about 160,000 years ago. At that time the remnants of the Chinese race – remnants from Mars – were struggling for survival on the plains of China. Out in the middle of the Pacific Ocean at the same time was another huge continent, which is know in your language of today as Lemuria. It was on this continent that a migrant colony from a planet by the same name landed and started a civilization, and so built a great city, bearing the same name, on the edge of this continent.
This huge civilization flourished for some 50,000 years or so, until the passing of a great star, as was described to you by Nurel, (in your “Truth About Mars” book), causing this great continent of Lemuria, like many other portions of land, to sink beneath the waters, and others rising to take their place. However, before this destruction, the great civilization of Lemuria had succeeded in penetrating different portions of the planet, and in teaching the various peoples of those sections some fragments of civilization, in the realms and dimensions of architecture, science, religion, and various other kindred arts and sciences. One of these sections which had been penetrated by the Lemurian civilization is known today as Mexico and also the borderland of the Western Hemisphere of the United States, west of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
Later, after the sinking of the continent of Lemuria, this civilization became rather decadent in nature and gradually, through thousands of years, began reverting into a rather primitive state of consciousness, without the supervision of the cultural natures of the instinctive forces from this Lemurian culture. This Mayan civilization, as it existed on the portion of the continent known as Mexico, was particularly outstanding in its exhibition of beautiful cities as well as great culture and refinement. However, it was not too outstanding or striking in its own dimensional growth.
Now we shall pause for a moment and inspect the other side of the American continent and go into what is now known as the Atlantic Ocean. There also existed another continent which is known to your day and time as Atlantis. It was another penetration of Lemuria, which set up a wonderful and beautiful civilization which survived the sinking of Lemuria, and did not sink beneath the waves until it was destroyed by the wrong use of atomic power, about 12,000 or 14,000 years before the coming of Jesus. It is important to remember this Atlantean period of civilization, in order to understand the beginning of Egyptian cultures.
As was pointed out in previous transmissions, the Aryan races had migrated into the various regions known as Chaldea, Assyria, Egypt, and Abyssinia. So it was that the artisans, the priests, and various other intellects from Atlantis, many thousands of years before its sinking beneath the waves, had penetrated into Egypt and there had found these migrants from the Aryan race living in various states of civilization. Thus it was that the cultures of the Atlanteans became thoroughly permeated and infused into the life of the Egyptian cultures during the many thousands of years of the dynasties of the pharaohs, after the time of Osiris, by the migrant priests from Atlantis. The Egyptian culture which sprang into existence is today one of the greatest and most mysterious semi-extinct civilizations on the face of your planet. We shall take, for example, the temple of Karnak, or Thebes, in the middle portion of Egypt. It is one of the great wonders of the world, with its diameter of about twenty-three miles and its one hundred great entrances or gateways.
The pyramids, whether the largest at Gizeh, built by Cheops, or any of several others, are all masterpieces of geometrical design, in which we can find examples of a perfectly squared circle, which exists in the exact meridian, or the parallax of magnetic flux which surrounds the earth. These temples and pyramids reflect to the utmost degree a much higher epitome of science, in both astrophysics and geo-physics, than has yet been exhibited in your modern world.
There are other factors which we shall point out to you from time to time, which relate to this civilization of Egypt, for example, the similarity to the appearance of the temples in the Yucatan Peninsula and to many of the gods of the personages of deification, worshipped by these ancient people; and so it is quite natural that there must have been some connection, and this is quite true. We shall therefore begin approximately 3800 years ago, or 1800 before the advent of the Avatar Jesus, into the Holy Land of Galilee.
There was a great Egyptian architect known by the name of Amenhotep, who helped to construct the Egyptian temple of Karnak or Thebes, who propounded into the lives of the Egyptians of that time a great deal of the wonder and fabulous science which you see still existing in your day. This man was a mystic, a great man in many ways, who heard the call from the higher dimensions about the need of the decadent civilization of the Mayans. He therefore gathered about himself a great band of artisans of different natures and of different types; and as you study your Egyptian histories, you know that the Egyptians were very clever in the artifacts of stone. They had saws having teeth made of precious stones, and their science of copper and bronze was of such nature that they could construct tools which were even harder than your steel tools of today. Their science extended into the dimensions of vibronics and sound therapy, of which you know little, a knowledge which was very valuable to the Egyptians at that time.
In constructing these great temples and pyramids, they needed a great deal of stone, often limestone, but most preferably sandstone. Sandstone, when it is first cut from the mother earth, is of a rather soft nature, however, it hardens through the passage of time. The Egyptians knew that by going to the face of a large limestone or sandstone cliff, they could drive a series of long metal rods into it. Then, gathering together a large number of people, they would sing a certain chant, or they would harmonize on a single tone, which would vibrate the rods so that a large portion of the cliff would be broken off. If you remember, Caruso would sit at a table, tap a glass by his side, find the note to which the glass vibrated, then sing this note loudly enough to cause the glass to fly into a thousand fragments. Exactly the same principle was used by the Egyptians to break off great portions of these cliffs, and to break these great portions into rude semblances of the square stones, which were later perfectly trued by the saws and other implements of their understanding.
Now Amenhotep gathered together a great band of these very advanced artisans and craftsmen of different cultures; and taking their families and their goats and their animals with them, they began a long trip across the various countries between them and the coast of China. Their journey led them on up through what was ancient Assyria and Chaldea. As they went, they left behind them numerous minglings of their culture, in the races of people which they found along the way. This journey was necessarily slow and took a great number of years because of the many thousands of people involved and of the numerous animals and paraphernalia which was brought along with them, necessary to their life in this journey to the coast of China. They went through the upper portion of Mesopotamia, into Persia, and, skirting around the northern regions of Kashmir, they circumvented the northern portion of what is now known as Tibet. Going through the Mongolian plains, they finally arrived at the coast of China.
This brings into the proper place a story which is related to your own America. Your archaeologists and geologists have wondered why it is that great forests of redwoods are so abundant in a certain part of Oregon and California. They are found in only one other place in the world – the coast of china – and curiously enough, these trees started about 3800 years ago. Now I shall point out to you how these portions of trees arrived in your America.
On arriving at the coast of China, Amenhotep and his great band of followers found a forest of these sequoias, whose wood was the most valuable to be had at that time. They began to cut down these great trees with which to build vessels and rafts, which would transport them across the great sea, which was now empty of the continent of Lemuria, and had been for many thousands of years. There is a great current which swings across this vast ocean space, called the Japan Current, known to Amen and his band. So after fabricating a great number of vessels from these great redwood logs, they ferried themselves across this vast ocean and landed along the coast, in the area now known as Humbolt County, near San Francisco. They dragged their vessels ashore, which became buried in the forests.
Now, you know that apparently dead and lifeless pieces of redwood are likely to grow if they have a piece of bark on them. It is quite likely that several pieces of wood from these vessels grew into trees. It may also be that the children, as well as the adults, had numerous pine cones or seeds of these trees, which scattered along the way; or perhaps the staves or other implements carved from these great trees were properly planted and flourished along the line of march, which followed along the coastal line from the area in which they had landed. So if you can trace on your map the area of these redwood trees, you will have the exact route which Amen and his band of artisans traveled in their march to the land of Mexico. Thus it is that about 3800 years ago, using an approximation of earth time, Amen found himself in the general area of Mexico City, and later in the peninsula of Yucatan. There he succeeded in rebuilding the civilization and in teaching the decadent Mayan people the great and flourishing art of architecture, as it was known in Egypt.
That race of Egyptians, mingling as they did with the Mayans through the centuries that followed, became the race known as the Toltec people, who, of course, quite naturally brought with them many of the spiritual interpretations of the Egyptians. Thus it is that at the time of the invasion of Cortez and his Spaniards, these Toltecs, who had in their spiritual philosophies the Second Coming of Christ, believed Cortez, because of his fair skin, to be the Second Coming of this great God. These names, which are rather difficult to pronounce, may be found in your earth histories, if any of you are of a curious nature and wish further to explore to satisfy your curiosity.
Now the Toltecs are not to be confused with the Aztecs, who also exhibited the same type of civilization in the northern part of what is now Mexico. They too exhibited a very high degree of culture and civilization. However, at the time of the invasion of Cortez, a great deal of conflict had arisen between these two nations. There had been wars and strife, and already the jungle had been creeping about some of the cities of the Toltecs. As you see these buildings and temples before you, here is one that is built on the face of a large pyramid, having three steps leading up to the main structure itself. As you look about, just as it exists in Yucatan today, you find not one, but three other temples which are built within it. The outside temple is about six stories high, with walls that are somewhat slanted. As you explore the various types of architecture, you will notice that the vast doorways are so placed that, as the sun streams in at the daytime, the stones in the interior of the building are so thoroughly warmed that they will radiate heat throughout the entire night.
There was also a provision made for the stormy times, whereby either wooden shutters could be thrown across these entrances and windows, or they were suitably covered with sheets of mica, mined from the hills, or cleverly matched panes of quartz. The art of window glass, as you know it in your time, was not expressed; but these people used the more natural mineral elements which were found in the hills and mountains about them. They exhibited something of the art of ceramics, in which they baked their various vessels in the fire, so that they became waterproof and indestructible. They also knew how to glaze and to make various types of porcelain. They were likewise very clever in the artifice of the manufacturing of silver and gold; and their clothing was very wonderfully interwoven and adorned with numerous gems, set in silver and gold.
The priest and the higher officials wore different types of bird plumage in the head dress and about their shoulders. The ruler of the whole nation, like the ruler of Egypt, was supposed to be of Divine conception; and he alone was permitted to wear a cape of feathers, which were taken from the bird of paradise.
Now you will begin to understand that obviously we can give you only a more or less superficial explanation of these great buildings. There is a twofold purpose for our brevity, inasmuch as we desire that the individual who reads these lines should be curiously inspired to pursue the various history books of the earth, which will more factually relate him to these great civilizations and eras of time. Much of this historical information is very factual in nature and has a high degree of relative truth. However, do bear in mind at all times that all sciences and philosophies, as they are expressed on your earth, as has been previously explained are valuable only in their own time and in their own dimension, because all such sciences and philosophies have a certain element of human error in their composition; although unintentional, it is there nevertheless.
As far as they go, the histories of the world can be considered incomplete, and subject to additions and changes by future derivations into the science of archaeology. But generally speaking, as far as the philosophies and sciences are concerned, as they are entered into by mankind, one should be very careful to avoid a pitfall. The main point is that in no case should any of these sciences or philosophies be made some sort of a demigod in your personal expression of life. If you set up these ideas or philosophies in your own consciousness to the exclusion of anything else, you will become quite unbalanced; and you will be unable further to pursue a normal and integrated course in your evolution, until you have torn down such prefabricated notions of superiority as may have been expressed by some science, or by some philosopher who lived on the earth at some other time.
As we all so well know here in these centers – and as has been said in many cases – we are not too proud of what we left behind on your earth; and these things will become increasingly apparent to you in your evolution into the various dimensions. It is quite obvious, too, that the people of the earth must have some fragments of philosophy or science to cling to. They must express a certain degree of these elements into their everyday lives; otherwise they will lack the proper foundations and the elements of security; so these things are quite obviously very necessary.
You will bear in mind also that in all cases, as you have now begun to understand, the physical sciences on your earth are only partially factual. As has been explained to you, mass and energy are one and the same in their own respective and relative dimensions of expression to each other. The obvious constant interchange of energy between the opposite polarities is based on principles which were explained somewhat by Pericles and by other Grecians, as well as by some of the ancient Egyptians. There is much of this science contained in the Vedas or Brahmistic concepts of the early age, so that the derivation of truth, as it exists in different concepts, is by nature imperishable and will exist into eternity and even beyond, for there is no eternity, since this word in itself is limiting. It is merely the way in which these truths are interwoven or distorted into unfactual and unrealistic elements in your daily lives, which made them obsessive or destructive in their general portent. And so until future transmissions, we bid you rest in peace.”
