Kasskara, the Hopi Mu

Recently a link to a partial translation of the German language book “Kasskara and the Seven Worlds” appeared in my inbox. The email’s author believed it might be helpful in my research into my great-grandfather James’ theories into the Lost Continent of Mu. I do appreciate the opportunity to discover more information about Mu.

This story of Mu was told to Joseph Blumrich, former NASA scientist (1913-2002) and author of The Spaceships of Ezekiel by Hopi Indian, Polar Bear.

To summarize, in this version of Mu, the inhabitants of Mu (also called Kasskara or Lemuria,) lived on their own continent in the Pacific Ocean and came into conflict with the folks from Atlantis (or Talawaitichqua.) The Talawaitichquans advanced their science and technology above all the other people, having delved into the secrecies of the Creator. Eventually they subjugated Europe and Africa and when it was time for Kasskara’s turn, an invisible shield protected them and caused the bombs to explode harmlessly in the atmosphere above them. Almost immediately, Talawaitichqua sunk, providing the instant karma they rightly deserved for their treachery and non-adherence to proper behavior. Kasskara started to sink slowly since only a few people there had been in league with the evil Talawaitichquans. Ingeniously, what is now North America started emerging and formed the new home for the survivors of Kasskara, after the emissaries of Gods living on a far-off planet flew them from their old home (the Third World) to their new home, the Fourth World. This is a short summary of a multi-page online document and readers are encouraged to research further if they are so motivated.

About the only thing in common between Polar Bear’s version and James Churchward’s version is a sunken Pacific Ocean continent. Much like other pronouncements named Mu or Lemuria, the sunken island motif is sometimes all they have in common; however, this version does not promote the idea of a white advanced civilization bringing civilization to the other humans on earth. Instead, it is part of the creation story of the Hopi.

James Churchward’s Lost Manuscripts on Mu

While researching information for my next book on the Great Uighur Empire, I was surprised to discover a letter describing manuscripts James Churchward had available in early 1926.

James is known to have published travel brochures in the 1890s (see http://my-mu.com/jworks.html,) and appeared on the early days of WNYC (see http://blog.my-mu.com/?p=673.) Newspaper accounts of his theories first appear in 1924 and his first book on those theories appeared in 1926, the Lost Continent of Mu Motherland of Men.

In 1924, Baird T. Spaulding’s book was published entitled “Life and Teaching of the Masters of the Far East;” an account of his visit to the Far East and his interaction with the ancient masters with incredible powers. A post from 2015 provided some data (see http://blog.my-mu.com/?p=1787) on Spaulding.

In a letter dated February 20, 1926, James Churchward wrote to Stella Spaulding, Baird’s wife, to request Mr. Spaulding present a manuscript to his publisher (DeVorss & Co.) for an offer on publication. Subsequently, he mentions he has some manuscripts in fair shape.

These are the titles and his descriptions:

Mu’s Colonies and Colonial Empire – showing how the world was peopled from Mu.

The Origin and Workings of the Great Forces – showing how and what forces govern the movements of all the celestial bodies, and their origin. The forces that govern the earth’s movements – The Origin of Life, what Life is, and what forces govern it and their origin – this is my most profound work, and I would like to get it going.

Geological Phenomena – volcanic gases and their workings, which includes the great gas belts and mountain raising – there are 60 maps in this one.

James also mentions his desire to follow Mr. Spaulding’s opinion on the publication of his manuscripts. A subsequent 1926 letter from Stella Spaulding to James (contained in Lost Gems of the Lost Continent of Mu) relates Mr. Spaulding’s interest in and the great amount of time spent reading the manuscripts he received from Churchward.

A typewritten copy of “Mu’s Colonies and Colonial Empire” does exist and attempts to obtain a copy have all failed.

While it is easy to point to “Mu’s Colonies and Colonial Empire” and infer it became what is known as “Children of Mu,” and that the “Origin and Working of the Great Forces” became the “Cosmic Forces of Mu.;” however there is no corollary to the “Lost Continent of Mu” or “Sacred Symbols of Mu.” On the other hand, WR Rudge published “Lost Continent of Mu Motherland of Men” in 1926, the same year. Is this an indication James was looking for a better deal from a different publisher? James stayed with Rudge, even sending his neighbor a copy of “Copies of Stone Tablets Found By William Niven in Santiago Ahuizoctla near Mexico City” for Christmas 1926. His work was subsequently reorganized and published over the next few years.

Questions remain – are there other copies of these manuscripts out there? Is there additional material contained in these manuscripts and cut from his future books providing additional references or proofs?

James Churchward, Mu, and Australia

Recently, I became aware of a suggested link between the ‘Gosford Glyphs‘ (aka as the ‘Kariong Hieroglyphs’) in Kariong, New South Wales, Australia and the theory of the Lost Continent of Mu as described and written about by my great grandfather, James Churchward in his books.

The carvings appear on two parallel sandstone walls about 49 feet (15 m) long and appear to advance Churchward’s theory of Mu.
In particular, the highlighted carving in the following image has been interpreted as “Mu is sunk.”

Gosford Glyphs – “Mu is sunk”

A proponent of the theory published his interpretation as follows:

“Mu is sunk” carving interpretation

Unfortunately, in the 1926 ‘Lost Continent of Mu Motherland of Men,’ James wrote:

AUSTRALIA.—Australia appears to be particularly bare of ancient records, legends and traditions, which is not to be wondered at if my geological deductions about Australia are correct.
Geometrical figures have been found rudely carved on some of the boomerangs of the Northern tribes. The bushmen of Northern Australia are probably the lowest type of humanity on earth, lower than the ordinary forest beasts.
This sketch is a reproduction of an Australian cave painting which, without doubt, antedates their low savagery.
There are three remarkable objects in this painting: the first is Ra – the Sun – and the second is the numeral 3, symbol of Mu, shown twice, and the third is an axe.
When the English first settled in Australia, axes of any description were unknown to the savage natives.

I have never heard of any legends or traditions having been found among the native Australians…

Obviously, James did not have a very high opinion of the Australian aborigines which flies in the face of his ancient advanced civilization of Mu. Since everyone came from his lost continent and there was no evolution of the human species, where did the bushmen, the “lowest type of humanity on earth, lower than the ordinary forest beasts” come from? His description of Mu as a virtual paradise with no suffering would have chased the forebears of these people into the woods to die, as he explains concerning the discovery of Neanderthal and other remains.

In their excitement over the discovery of a few old human bones, such as the Neanderthal, Piltdown, and Heidelberg man, scientists, in both Europe and America, have completely ignored and cast aside the remains of ancient man in North America. That the European remains were those of idiots and degenerates is obvious from the abnormal shapes of their skulls. Doubtless they were outcasts from civilized communities…

In spite of evidence the carvings were created in the twentieth century, there are individuals insisting these are proof of a link between Egypt, Australia, and Mu. My only remaining question would be, how do they interpret the symbol to the left of the ‘Mu is sunk’ carving highlighted in the image below?

Have a nice day!
