Lemuria - Mu - Atlantis thread:
Hypothetical Lemuria is named after the lemur..
Here's a rendition from 1893..
Lemuria theories first became popular in 1864, when British lawyer and zoologist Philip Lutley Sclater wrote a paper titled “The Mammals of Madagascar” and had it published in the The Quarterly Journal of Science.
Sclater observed that there were many more species of lemur in Madagascar than there were in either Africa or India, thus claiming that Madagascar was the animal’s original homeland.
Moreover, he proposed that what had allowed lemurs to first migrate to India and Africa from Madagascar long ago was a now-lost landmass stretching across the southern Indian Ocean in a triangular shape.
There's only a few 'big islands' out there..
So what we have are 'legends' of these lost island nations before modern cartography..
German biologist Ernst Haeckel began publishing work claiming that Lemuria was what allowed humans to first migrate out of Asia (believed by some at the time to be the birthplace of humanity) and into Africa.
Botanical works by Haeckel
Haeckel even suggested that Lemuria (a.k.a. “Paradise”) may have been the very cradle of humankind itself.
Here's his map from 1876..
With help from Haeckel, Lemuria theories persisted throughout the 1800s and into the early 1900s (often discussed alongside the myth of Kumari Kandam, a proposed lost continent in the Indian Ocean that once housed a Tamil civilization).
This is where it gets spicy..
So the idea is instead of Lemuria or Mu existing physically as land mass... It was really a lost ocean faring civilization with roots in Africa and the Indian subcontinent..
Graham Hancock has really done a lot of great work on the lost civilization theory..
I'll refer to his underwater explorations around Japan here..
Primitive people.. primitive ships.. ocean faring..
We also have this idea of the Rama Empire, 10,000 B.C. – 2,500 B.C. (also known as the Indus civilization) in and around the same area.
The vimana folks might be familiar here..
This is certainly a diffusion / exodus narrative.. not one of isolation..
I've already threaded elsewhere how Egyptian influence could likely be traced via copper alloys that were used in stone work across the Indoasian landmass...
So it went..
Egyptian > Sumerian > Persian / Babylonian / Indo > Chinese
And that's not even really debated.. that's a good line..
All the while we have the Dogan.. who claim to be descendants of Egypt.. keeping Sirius A & B on lock..
We also see similar architecture between the Hopi Indians of the American South-West and the Dogon of West Africa..
The Hopi and Dogon also share similar tribal ritual practices..
That was all some pretext.. for the idea.. that the Babylon myth.. is likely truer than people give it credit for..
The dispersion idea.. is an old one..
What architectural links can we find?
We see some interesting dare I say "masonic" ruins in Cambodia..
The Tamil.. were the great stone working people of this era.. there's been some interesting stuff linguistically I've read about Tamil that I won't go into here.. maybe our hindu frenz can enlighten us.. *coughcough*
I mean this is some legit Plus Ultra stuff here folks..
So we see Hindu temples all through the Indonesian islands..
This shows that not only were they a civilization of master stone workers.. but also excellent seafarers..
We also see the Hindu party crystal hanging out and getting laid on Hawaii..
Are there any bits of evidence that suggest that Hawaiian natives come from the Asian landmass?
So mainstream history even states that the natives of Hawaii are descendant from people that lived in the Indonesian area..
Maybe these early sailors were better than we give them credit for?
Hell a smooth sea might even bring them to a new world! https://www.britannica.com/topic/Hawaiian
On the right.. South America.. on the left.. Cambodia..
We also have accounts for all of these South American 'native' groups to have been essentially death cults..
We see the similar sacrificial type rituals between Hindu Kali / Shiva cults and that of South America..
Note the concept of "Maya" in Hinduism...
Now.. consider the "Mayan" culture in South America..
Enter Calafia, or Califia, the fictional queen of the island of California, first introduced by sixteenth-century poet Garci Rodríguez de Montalvo in his epic, Las sergas de Esplandián, written around 1510.
So.. what's up with this fictional empress / queen of California?
Who is she? Where is she?
Khalifa or Khalifah (Arabic: خليفة) is a name or title which means "successor", "ruler" or "leader". It most commonly refers to the leader of a Caliphate.
It is also used as a title among various Islamic religious groups and orders.
Note the difference between Java and Bali
Look into it
Why is any of this relevant or connected?
South American "mayan"
Mythic Island of California and its Queen Califia
Imagine being some Spanish explorer just exploring along and then you find something like this..
King Denis of Portugal.. badass who wasn't gonna deal with any fuck shit from the Pope.. https://g.co/kgs/5xZ3TM
The Spanish were briefly given territorial rights to India by Pope Alexander VI on 25 September 1493 by the bull Dudum siquidem before these rights were removed by the Treaty of Tordesillas less than one year later.
The idea.. is that the Spanish go to India.. and possibly find out about this New/Old world we call America..
This would have all happened with the Templars and other knightly orders.. Pre-Columbian..
Ancient alien theorists suggest that King Denis of Portugal set up a safe haven on the west coast of America for templars and their treasure to be stored away in California like missions..
Storing away priceless artifacts like the sword of Joan of Arc which belonged to Charlemagne's grandfather..
Portuguese explorer that was sent to search California's coast and never returned?
