The epoch of Atlantis’s submersion was indeed an era of many geological changes. During that time, other landmasses surfaced from within the profound bosom of the immense sea to become new islands and new continents.
Some Atlantean survivors sought refuge on the small continent of Grabontzi (present-day Africa). This continent increased in size and extent because other landmasses (that had surfaced from within neighboring seas) were added onto it.
In ancient times, the Gulf of Mexico was a beautiful valley. The Antilles Islands, Canary Islands, and Spain are pieces of the now-submerged Atlantis.
Today, the ancient Kolhidius Sea is known as the Caspian Sea. It was situated in the northeast of the then newly-formed continent of Ashhartk, which is present day Asia. The coasts of the Caspian Sea were formed by those lands that surfaced from within the ocean and joined the continent of Asia. Asia, the Caspian Sea, and the entire block of that land together, is presently known as the Caucasus. That block of land, in those times, was named Frianktzanarali and later on Kolhidishssi; however, in this day and age, as we already stated, it is the Caucasus.
In those times of yore, a great river that fertilized the whole rich land of Tikliamis flowed into the Caspian Sea. The river at that time was known as Oksoseria. This river still exists; however, it no longer flows into the Caspian Sea due to a secondary tremor that deviated it towards the right. The rich volume of water from this river violently precipitated itself through the most depressed zone of the Asiatic continent, thus originating the small Aral Sea; however, the very ancient river bed of that old river, which is currently named Amu Darya, can still be seen as a sacred testimony of the flow of the centuries.
Atlantis passed through terrible and frightful catastrophes before it totally disappeared. The first catastrophe happened more or less 800,000 years ago. The second catastrophe occurred 200,000 years ago. The third catastrophe took place about 11,000 years ago. People have more or less befuddled memories of this latter catastrophe and its deluge.
After the third great catastrophe that finished off Atlantis, all of the cities and towns of the ancient country of Tikliamis, with its formidable capital situated on the shores of the river that flowed into the Caspian Sea (which later originated the Aral Sea), was covered by sand, and today remains only as a desert.
During those epochs unknown to Cesare Cantù and his universal history, there was another beautiful country, known as Marapleicie. This country traded with Tikliamis and there was a very strong commercial competition between them.Later on, the country of Marapleicie changed its name to Gobland, due to the great city of Gob. Gobland and its powerful city were swallowed up by the sands of the desert. So, within the sands of the Gobi desert, many wealthy Atlantean treasures are hidden, as well as powerful machines that are unknown by the populaces of this Aryan root race. Once in a while, the sands leave all of those treasures exposed; yet nobody dares to touch them, because the one who tries is instantaneously killed by the gnomes who guard them. Only the human beings of the future sixth root race will know of these treasures, based upon the condition that they behave upright.
Many pearl tradesmen from Atlantis were saved by taking refuge in Pearland, a country that is known in this day and age as India.
The Atlanteans were the ones who built the pyramids of the Egyptians and Aztecs. The Atlanteans were the ones who founded the Inca civilization, the ones who established the mysteries in India, China, Egypt, Yucatan, etc.
The Atlantean root race disappeared, swallowed up by the sea. That race had seven subraces; the last of these subraces, the seventh subrace, corresponds to the survivors of the great tragedy.
The seed of our Aryan root race is Nordic. When the Nordics mixed themselves with the Atlantean survivors, they gave origin to all of the subraces of our Aryan root race.
The first Aryan subrace flourished in Central Asia.
The second Aryan subrace flourished in India and the entire south of Asia.
The third Aryan subrace created the powerful civilizations of Babylon, Chaldea, Egypt, etc.
The fourth Aryan subrace developed in Greece, Rome, etc.
The fifth Aryan subrace is made up of the Anglo-Saxon and Teutonic populace.
The great authors of modern anthropogenesis, such as H.P.B., Rudolf Steiner, Max Heindel, and others, committed the very lamentable mistake of supposing that in their epoch they were in the fifth Aryan subrace of the Aryan (fifth) root race, as if the Latin-American people did not exist, as if the Latin-Americans were also Anglo-Saxon or Teutonic, or something of the sort.
It is an absurdity to ignore the racial phenomenon of Latin America; by all means, it is logical to see that from the mixture of the Spanish Conquistadors with the Indo-American tribes, we get, as a matter of fact and by its own right, a new Aryan subrace, that is, the sixth branch of the Aryan trunk.
The labor of forming the sixth Aryan subrace in the native, red-skin territory (USA) was more difficult, because instead of mixing themselves with the native, indigenous people, the English conquerors destroyed them; they assassinated them. Thus, in North America, an insignificant amount of blood mixing was performed between the two peoples, causing enormous difficulty for the formation of the sixth Aryan subrace. Therefore, the esoteric fraternity who governs the fate of the world foresaw the necessity of converting the North American territory into the melting crucible of all races. This is why all of the races of the world are integrating within the United States.
The authors of anthropogenesis and esotericism should not ignore that the sixth Aryan subrace was easily formed in Latin America.
The seventh Aryan subrace is the last to exist. The seventh Aryan subrace will exist until the end and will be among the survivors of the great new cataclysm that will very soon destroy this Aryan root race.
There were powerful spiritual civilizations from the first Aryan subrace in those kingdoms of Central Asia, in the countries of Gobland, Marapleicie, etc., which were situated in the heart of Asia and that presently have vanished. In the Himalayas, around the country of Tibet, only their ruins exist.
Formidable esoteric cultures and tremendous civilizations existed in Pearland (the sacred land of the Vedas, the ancient Hindustan), as well as in the entire regions of Southern Asia where the second Aryan subrace developed.
Babylon (before its decadence), Chaldea and its ancient mysteries, Egypt and its pyramids, were all scenarios of very rich and powerful civilizations created by the third Aryan subrace.
Athens, the great city founded by the Goddess Athena, Rome (before its degeneration and destruction), were the marvelous scenarios where the powerful civilizations of the fourth Aryan subrace developed.
The First and Second World Wars, with all of their barbarism and moral corruption, aimed their accusatory fingers at the men and women of the fifth Aryan subrace.
South America is the scenario of the sixth Aryan subrace, since their cousins, “the gringos” from North America, are still extremely Anglo-Saxon by majority.
Presently, instead of evolving, the Aryan root race has devolved, and its corruption is worse than that of the Atlantean root race. The Aryan root race’s malignity is so great that it has “reached unto heaven.” [Revelation 18:5] Therefore, this Aryan root race will be destroyed so that Ra-Mu’s prophesy (which he uttered before the submergence of Atlantis) will be fulfilled: If these people forget that they should not amass material things, not only for their own progress, but also for generosity towards mankind, the same fate will surprise them.
