Lemuria or Mu Real or Myth?
.Lemuria, also known as Motherland Mu, was and is an ancient civilization that existed physically as an enormous continent in the Pacific Ocean from approximately 98 000 B.C. to 8 000 B.C. long before, and partially at the same time as, Atlantis in the Atlantic Ocean. The people of Mu went through many phases during their civilization, and are best known by their highly advanced culture and spirituality
The legend of Mu is found on all the islands of the Pacific Ocean. For thousands of years the Polynesians have handed down the story of this civilization. The name comes from a controversy over Charles Darwin's Origin of the Species. The Darwin supporters had trouble explaining how some species were distributed over certain large areas. Zoologists especially found it difficult to explain the distribution of the lemurs.The lemurs are a small primitive form of primates found in Africa,Madagascar,India and the East Indian archipelago.Some zoologists suggested a large land mass in the Indian Ocean millions of years ago between Madagascar and India .An English zoologist, Phillip L.Schlater, suggested it be named Lemuria for this former land of the lemurs.
The idea of the Lemurian continent first was found in the works of Agustus Le Plongeon(1826-1908) This writer and researcher had spent time investigating the Maya ruins in the Yucatan.He announced his translations of ancient Mayan writings showed that the Maya of the Yucatan were older than the civilizations of both Atlantis and Egypt.Additionally,he told of an even older continent of Mu whose survivors founded the Maya civilization.
Later, a metaphysical leader who brought the relm into that area for focus,Mme Blasvatsky located her Lemuria in the Indian Ocean about 150 million years ago. She may have obtained her ideas of a sunken land in the Indian Ocean from Sanskrit legends of the former continent of Rutas that sank beneath the sea. But the name Rutas sounds too spiritless and uninspiring to have held such a prominent place in cosmic history.
In this century, writers have increasingly placed Lemuria in the Pacific Ocean
..There are those who believe that Lemuria suddenly appeared with a full-blown culture. This has spawned many interesting theories, including visits from extraterrestrials who introduced a new species of genetically engineered humans to replace their slow-witted ancestors.
This too links with other creationa theories about humans being seeded by gods or aliens.
Another theory is based on the notion of 'seed crystals' in which the knowledge and story of Lemuria was encoded and stored in seed crystals just before Lemuria fell. Later- the crystals would be discovered and their messages revealed helping those who find them remember their heritage.
A variation fairly well accepted is that a vast number of Lemurians went underground to avoid the cataclysmic earth changes that were coming.Several hundred years were spent, as the theory says in preparing the underground world,They would be given a sign when to enter it.The imprinting of the crystals with seeds containing all the knowledge of the ages was to be done.The crystals then would be housed underground with the people.Some were dispersed to other higher grounds and areas, by boat, to live while assisting in saving and spreading the knowledge.
Next will be a most unusual theory of the people of Mu as presented by a colorful and contraversal woman Mme Blasvatsky
As flamboyant as she was, the people as she describes them ( complete with seeing through their "Third Eye") would be even more a sight to behold..
Madame Elena Petrovna Blavatsky (born Helena Hahn 1831-1891),
Also look at a claim of Lemurians living in California.
