The Root Races are thus
1. Polarians the first root race was primarily spiritual
(Astral/Etheric) and did not leave physical remains.
2. Hyperboreans the second, Hyperborean root-race (a
continuation of the first) was semi-astral but grew denser
and opaquer with each passing age. Towards its end, it
became more gelatinous and filamentous in structure, and
developed the rudimentary beginnings of bones and
organs, hair, and skin. Although still more or less oval
shaped in form, it began to show the first outlines of the
later human form. However, towards its end, its bodies
passed through many curious, part-animal forms.
3. Lemurians the third, Lemurians were the first with
physical bodies. They were described as a race of three
eyed giants and inhabited a “lost continent” of Lemuria
which is where the Indian and Pacific oceans now
are. Modern theosophists sometimes identify Lemuria
with the actual ancient supercontinent of Gondwana.
Others may refer to it as “Mu”.
4. Atlanteans the fourth, Atlantean Root Race includes the
4) First Turanians
5) Original Semites
5. Aryans the fifth, constituent “sub-races” of the Aryan (5th
or present) Root Race include the following:
4) Hellenes (Greeks & Romans)
6) Nova men
7) Indigo Children & Star Children
6. 6th Root Race (in postulation)
7. 7th Root Race (in postulation)
Among the 4th Root Race in the Atlantean Age, we will
find many interpretations of the culture. We must understand
that the Atlantean Age spanned hundreds of thousands of
years. It had gone through 7 cycles of Perfected Beings and
new conscious development, each very different than the last.
Those who speak of this time, can generally be relating from
their experience and lifetime of a particular cycle, and not of
the entire age. It would have been easier to locate the
descendants of the 4th Root Race, due to the specific region
they inhabited throughout Atlantean Territories. However, it
would not have meant that New Consciousness during these 7
cycles would have been lost to the rest of Earth. The New
Root Race would always collectively impart its Conscious
Impulse to the whole of the planet. I realize that this is at odds
with the current understandings, but I must make this known.
Only specific situations where little to no births due to
environments, or societies with extreme unconscious
corruption such as cannibalism, deadly warfare, or the like
would inhibit this Impulse.
