In the period, then - some hundred, some ninety-eight thousand years before the entry of Ram into India - there lived in this land of Atlantis one Amilius. (Aryans into India 2000 BC = 100,000 years BC) there lived in this land of Atlantis one Amilius [?], who had first NOTED that of the separations of the beings as inhabited that portion of the earth's sphere or plane of those peoples into male and female as separate entities, or individuals. As to their forms in the physical sense, these were much RATHER of the nature of THOUGHT FORMS, or able to push out OF THEMSELVES in that direction in which its development took shape in thought - much in the way and manner as the amoeba would in the waters of a stagnant bay, or lake, in the present. As these took form, by the gratifying of their own desire for that as builded or added to the material conditions, they became hardened or set -much in the form of the existent human body of the day, with that of color as partook of its surroundings much in the manner as the chameleon in the present. Hence coming into that form as the red, or the mixture peoples - or colors; known then later by the associations as the RED race. These, then, able to use IN their gradual development all the forces as were manifest in their individual surroundings, passing through those periods of developments as has been followed more closely in that of the yellow, the black, or the white races, in other portions of the world; yet with their immediate surroundings, with the facilities for the developments, these became much speedier in this particular portion of the globe than in others - and while the destruction of this continent and the peoples are far beyond any of that as has been kept as an absolute record, that record in the rocks still remains - as has that influence OF those peoples in that life of those peoples to whom those that did escape during the periods of destruction make or influence the lives of those peoples TO whom they came.

And Ohum, that builded the walls across the mountains in this period, through those same usages of that as had been taken on by those peoples. And also into American area and became the first of the mound dwellers, or peoples in that land.

(Q) Was Atlantis one of the five points at which man appeared in the beginning, being the home of the red race? (A) One of the five points. As has been given, in what is known as Gobi, India, in Carpathia [?], or in that known as the Andes, and that known as in the western plain of what is now called America - the five places. In their presentation, as we find, these - in the five places, as MAN (Let's get the difference in that as first appeared in what is known as Atlantis, and that as MAN appearing from those projections in the five places - and, as has been given, from their environ took on that as became necessary for the meeting of those varying conditions under which their individualities and personalities began to put on form) - one in the white, another in the brown, another in the black, another in the red. These, as we find, taking that form - Would snow be the place for the black? or the sun the place for the white? or the desert and the hills for either the white or black? as were partakers of those things that brought about those variations in that which enters, or becomes as the outer presentation, or the skin, or the pigment that is presented in same.

         Thursday, May 2, 1963
         By Peter H. Binzen
         Of The Bulletin Staff
         Dr. Carleton S. Coon, noted anthropologist whose work, "The
         Origin of Races," has stirred controversy, is retiring as
         curator of ethnology and professor of anthropology at the
         University of Pennsylvania Museum.
         Professor Coon, 58, has held the two posts for 15 years.  His
         retirement is effective July 1.  He will remain a member of
         the museum staff for field work.
         From his home in Gloucester, Mass., Dr. Coon said yesterday
         that he plans to devote his time to research and writing.  He
         has been on leave for a year.
         Author, lecturer, onetime television personality (on the
         Museum program, "What in the World?"), Professor Coon is
         currently president of the American Association of Physical
         Last Friday he received one of two Athenaeum of Philadelphia
         1962 gold medals for nonfiction, for "The Origin of Races."
         Professor Coon emphasized that his retirement had been
         planned for a long time and has no connection whatever with
         the furor that has developed over "The Origin of Races."
         In the volume, which was published last fall, Coon offers a
         striking theory concerning the history of mankind.
         It is his belief that man divided into five races or
         subspecies half a million years ago, perhaps longer, and the
         five races then developed almost independently.
         Homo erectus evolved into Homo sapiens, he believes, not
         once but five times as each subspecies passed the critical
         intelligence threshold.
         He suggests there may have been a lag of as much as 200,000
         years between the time the first subspecies became sapient
         (wise) and the time that the fifth one did.
         Coon tentatively traces the Congoid (Negro) subspecies
         through the so-called "Broken Hill" man of Northern Rhodesia
         which he terms "the only complete specimen of Homo erectus
         yet found."  He estimates its age at no more than 25,000
         Segregationists pounced on the book as evidence that the
         Negro race was at least 200,000 years behind the white race
         on the ladder of evolution.
         Dr. Coon, in "The Origin of Races," said he was making no
         judgments concerning possible relationships between blood
         and brains.  He promised to do so in a sequel.

(Q) Please give a few details regarding the physiognomy, habits, customs and costumes of the people of Atlantis during the period just before this first destruction. (A) These, as we find, will require their being separated in the gradual development of the body and its physiognomy as it came into being in the various portions of that land, as well as to those that would separate themselves from those peoples where there were the indwelling of peoples, or man - as man, in the various areas of the land, or what we call world. In the matter of form, as we find, first there were those as projections from that about the animal kingdom; for the THOUGHT bodies gradually took form, and the various COMBINATIONS (as may be called) of the various forces that called or classified themselves as gods, or rulers over -whether herds, or fowls, or fishes, etc. - in PART that kingdom and part of that as gradually evolved into a physiognomy much in the form of the present day may (were one chosen of those that were, or are, the nearest representative of the race of peoples that existed in this first period as the first destructions came about). These took on MANY sizes as to stature, from that as may be called the midget to the giants - for there were giants in the earth in those days, men as tall as (what would be termed today) ten to twelve feet in stature, and in proportion - well proportioned throughout. The ones that became the most USEFUL were those as would be classified (or called in the present) as the IDEAL stature, that was of both male and female (as those separations had been begun); and the most ideal (as would be called) was Adam, who was in that period when he (Adam) appeared as five in one - See? In this the physiognomy was that of a full head, with an extra EYE - as it were - in those portions that became what is known as the EYE. In the beginning these appeared in WHATEVER portion was desired by the body for its use! As for the dress, those in the beginning were (and the Lord made for them coats) of the skins of the animals. These covered the parts of their person that had become, then, as those portions of their physiognomy that had brought much of the desires that made for destructive forces in their own experience; and these then were of those ABOUT them that were given as meat, or used as same - that partook of the herbs. These were those same herbs that the seed were to have been for food for the man in self, and only those that partook of same may be called even CLEAN - in the present day. Those that supply those same materials that are the proper building for the forces within the anatomical forces, or physiological forces, of a developing body; for these carry all the elements in their natural state. Little of minerals should ever be the properties within the system, save as may be taken through the vegetable forces, save where individuals have so laxed themselves as to require or need that which will make for an even balance of same.

(Q) Are the places designated for the beginning of the five races correct? (A) As we find, these are changed, in that: Those in the Gobi, the yellow. The white - rather in the Carpathians than India, though this is the change to which they are made. The red, of course, in the Atlantean and in the American. The brown in the Andean. The black in the plain and the Sudan, or in African.

READING: 364-13

(Q) Where was the Carpathian region? (A) Aarat. (Q) Where is the location? Is it on the map today? (A) Southern part of Europe and Russia, and Persia and that land. Caucasian mountains.

READING: 364-13

Q) Why was the number five selected for the projection of the five races? (A) This, as we find, is that element which represents man in his physical form, and the attributes to which he may become conscious FROM the elemental or spiritual to the physical consciousness. As the senses; as the sensing OF the various forces that bring to man the activities in the sphere in which he finds himself.

READING: 364-13

(Q) Did the appearance of what became the five races occur simultaneously? (A) Occurred at once.

READING: 364-13

(Q) Describe the earth's surface at the period of the appearance of the five projections. (A) This has been given. In the first, or that known as the beginning, or in the Caucasian and Carpathian, or the Garden of Eden, in that land which lies now much in the desert, yet much in mountain and much in the rolling lands there. The extreme northern portions were then the southern portions, or the polar regions were then turned to where they occupied more of the tropical and semi-tropical regions; hence it would be hard to discern or disseminate the change. The Nile entered into the Atlantic Ocean. What is now the Sahara was an inhabited land and very fertile. What is now the central portion of this country, or the Mississippi basin, was then all in the ocean; only the plateau was existent, or the regions that are now portions of Nevada, Utah and Arizona formed the greater part of what we know as the United States. That along the Atlantic board formed the outer portion then, or the lowlands of Atlantis. The Andean, or the Pacific coast of South America, occupied then the extreme western portion of Lemuria. The Urals and the northern regions of same were turned into a tropical land. The desert in the Mongolian land was then the fertile portion. This may enable you to form SOME concept of the status of the earth's representations at that time! The oceans were then turned about; they no longer bear their names, yet from whence obtained they their names? What is the legend, even, as to their names?

READING: 364-13

(Q) Are the following the correct places? Atlantean, the red. (A) Atlantean and American, the red race.

READING: 364-13

(Q) Upper Africa for the black? (A) Or what would be known now as the more WESTERN portion of upper Egypt for the black. You see, with the changes -when there came the uprisings in the Atlantean land, and the sojourning southward - with the turning of the axis, the white and yellow races came more into that portion of Egypt, India, Persia and Arabia.

READING: 364-13

(Q) There was no original projection in upper India? (A) This was a portion rather of the white and the yellow as represented. Let these represent the attributes of the physical, or the senses and what forms they take, rather than calling them white, black, yellow, red and green, etc. What do they signify in the SENSING? Sight, vision - white. Feeling - red. Black - gratifying of appetites in the senses. Yellow - mingling in the hearing. What is the law of the peoples that these represent? Their basic thoughts run to those elements!

READING: 877-26

There were also other centers that were developing. For in the projections they began as many, and in creating influences they began as five - or in those centers where crystallization or projection had taken on such form as to become what was called man. Hardly could it be said that they were in the exact form as in the present. For there were more of the influences that might be used when necessary; such as arms or limbs or feet or whatnot.

READING: 877-26

Atlantis was only ONE of the groups (of men); and the highest or the greater advancement in the earthly sojourning of individual entities or souls at that particular period - or the highest that had been save that which had been a part of the Lemurian age.

READING: 1629-1

Entity in the land when the highest civilization existed in Atlantis. The entity then among those who preserved the laws of the peoples as relating to the mysteries of the races. Hence the entity lost and gained through that experience, for in the application of same to selfish desire the entity brought destructive forces to self and self's inner being; yet innately the mysteries of numbers, races, places, shrines, stones, temples, and such, keep the entity - as it were - in innate fear of their meaning.

READING: 1968-2

The days upon the earth then were counted in the tens, the fifties and the hundreds, besides the days or weeks or years in the present. Or, the LIFE existence of the entity, as compared to the present, would be years instead of weeks; or, in that experience, to live five to six to seven hundred years was no more than to live to the age of fifty, sixty or seventy years in the present.

READING: 2467-1

In the one before this we find in that period when man's indwelling became more of the fact. The entity then in the land known as Atlantis, and a power during that period -being honored among those that were called sons of the Most High.
