Origin: The pseudo-scientific antediluvian book series by James Churchward, including The Lost Continent of Mu, The Children of Mu, The Sacred Symbols of Mu, The Cosmic Forces of Mu and The Second Book of the Cosmic Forces of Mu.

Description

A set of clay tablets said to be kept in secret libraries by the high priests of mysterious secret religions, describing the antediluvian history of Earth, focusing on the lost continent of Mu, placed in the Pacific ocean, describing the continent's rise to great technological and spiritual enlightenment far in advance of the 20th century, some 50,000 years ago, in an age when Darwin believed the ancestors of Man to be pre-human ape-like beasts; this golden age was to be eventually followed by catastrophe, sending the continent to the bottom of the ocean following centuries of extended volcanic disaster. The tablets are said to be written in Naacal, a language known only to a few initiates in the world, linking Mayan, Egyptian, and Polynesian languages together as a common ancestor, with the Mayan civilization being older than the rest as the origin of "old world" civilizations influenced after the fall of Mu through migrations to the east, through Atlantis.

Churchward, one of the few westerners granted permission to tee the Naacal tablets and learn their language, was allowed to see the tome only once, with great reluctance from the priests who kept it, and was allowed to scan it only after earning the priests' trust; because of the shortness of the glance Churchward was given and because of the fragmentary nature of the tablets, Churchward was forced to complete his translation work from within the Dreamlands.
