Cosmic Memory - Prehistory of Earth and Man
Aus der Akasha-Chronik (1904 – 1908)
These early lectures reconstruct events between the origin of the earth and the beginning of recorded history and include a core investigation of the origins, achievements and fate of the Atlanteans and Lemurians. These remarkable “lost” root races developed the first concepts of “good” and “evil,” manipulated the forces of nature, laid the groundwork of all human legal and ethical systems, and defined and nurtured the distinctive yet complementary powers of men and women that brought humankind, many centuries ago, to its highest artistic, intellectual, and spiritual attainments.
