Moai, the colossal stone statues of Easter Island. Its origin, mode of manufacture and reason of be are a puzzle to scholars.

Easter Island is known for its Moai statues - giant stone heads that no one knows who carved the people or for what purpose were made. However, this is not the only mystery of the island. The Rongorongo, the local language in written - also intrigue scholars. The writing system seems to have suddenly arisen in recent times, in the 1700s -what is very strange. In two centuries, the Rapanui, as it is called by the people, fell into obscurity.

The Rongorongo is a pictographic writing. The signs are recorded in grooves - in wooden boards and other artifacts of the island. The system is not known in the neighboring islands. The current explanation is that the Rongorongo was created by the natives as an imitation of the Spanish system, that was introduced there in the eighteenth century, in 1770. However, despite this alleged recent origin, no linguist or archaeologist - deciphered the Rapanui documents.

Rongo-rongo, writing system of the natives of the Easter island, still undeciphered, can hide the explanation for the mystery of the Moais.

When the first Europeans arrived at Easter Island, the place was - practically - an isolated ecosystem that was suffering the effects of depletion of natural resources, deforestation and overpopulation. In the follow years, this population has been devastated by European diseases and by the slave trade.

In this process, Rongorongo almost disappeared. The colonists decided that writing was part of paganism popular and should be banned along with other traditions "heretical." The missionaries forced the natives to destroy the boards of Rapanui.

In 1877, there were just over 100 inhabitants on the island. [According to the sense of 2002, Easter Island had, that year, just over 3,700 inhabitants]. In this process, Rongorongo almost disappeared. The colonists decided that writing was part of paganism popular and should be banned along with other traditions "heretical." The missionaries forced the natives to destroy the written boards of Rapanui.

In 1864, Father Joseph Eyraud became the first non-islander that wrote, like an historicist, about the Rongorongo. He worked in this matter before the final decline of the society of the island: "In every house find tablets of wood and other objects with hieroglyphic writing." Eyraud not found anyone who could translate the texts, the people were afraid to deal with it because of the prohibitions of the missionaries.

In 1886, William Thompson, that was on board of the American ship USS Mohican, in a travel that passed on the island, collecting objects for the National Museum, Washington, became interested in the writing of the natives. He obtained two rare tablets and found an islet that was able to translate the text. The transcript obtained is one of the few documents that can serve as a parameter to decipher the Rongorongo.

Image
The similarities between the signs rongo-rongo, on Easter Island and ancient Hindu writing were discovered by Wilhelm de Hevesy, in 1932.

Studies continued in the following decades. In 1932, Wilhelm de Hevesy tried to find a connection between the system Rongorongo of written - and the system used by ancient Hindus. He had found a correlation between the two in 40 examples of symbols, but his conclusions were not complete.

In 1950, Thomas Barthel - was the first linguist - of the middle of twenty century - that showed interest in Rongorongo. Barthel stated that the system was composed of 120 basic elements that, combined, formed fifteen hundred different symbols that represent objects and ideas. The translation is extremely difficult because a single symbol can represent a whole sentence. A major achievement of Barthel was to identification of an artifact, known as Mamri, as a lunar calendar.

More recent studies have been conducted by linguist Steven Fisher. Among the exemplars of written on tablets that he studied, stands out a one that belonged to a native chief of the island.

The object is covered with pictographs. Studying these figures, Fisher found that the units of Rongorongo are triads composed of three signs. The meanings are result of the triads combinations. One of the texts soon proved to be a religious song and the study of another linguist led to the conclusion that all the texts found in the Easter island are related to myths of the Creation.

The Rongorongo written continues being an enigma for the researchers. Today, only 25 tablets and objects (that contain scriptures) survived the ravages of time. Anthropologists and archaeologists have hope of translating pictograms which can reveal the mystery of the Moais, the colossal statues of the island.

Some believe that the Moais were erected by the last remnants of the lost continent of Lemuria, which, according to occult tradition, was the Civilization of the called "Third Human Race", when men were "giants" - similar to the statues.

EASTER ISLAND IN THEOSOPHY The relation with Lemurians and Atlanteans

Image

On the map, in orange color, the lands of the Lemurian continent. Much of Africa, southern Europe and Asia, South America and North America, this lands - they did not existed. The Easter Island is in the Pacific Ocean where - today - the territory of these waters belongs to Chile.

The Easter Island is a small part of an ancient continent that, today - is underwater: the land of Lemuria. That means those lands belonged to Lemuria. Lemuria was submerged but re-emerged, not once but several times. The Easter Island, one of the highest points of the Lemurian continent, is among the first places to "get out of water" when the ocean levels suffer change - to down.

The ethnic groups that inhabited the island were representatives of the Atlanteans, Fourth Human Race. "The Easter Island is a remnant of Lemuria ... belong [geologically] the beginning of civilization of the Third Race [while the statues belong - anthropologically and historically, to the Atlanteans of Fourth Race]." Amid the revolutions of the earth's crust, land masses, often disappear into the sea for arise again, in another Era. The Easter Island "... emerged intact with its volcano and its statues ..." (BLAVATSKY, 2001)

In The Countries of the World, Robert Brown writes: "Teapi, Rapa Nui or Easter Island is an isolated point distant to nearly two thousand miles from the coast of South America ... It is about twelve miles long by four wide. At its center .. exists an volcanic extinct crater that has 1,050 feet in height. The island is covered with these craters, so long extinct that there is none tradition remembering something of the epoch of they were actives".

To Theosophists, the statues of the island represent real men. They belonged to an extinct men race - considerably more portly than these of nowadays. They were the giants who carved the statues known like Moais.

Easter Island is an oceanic island which belongs to Chile, famous for its huge stone statues known as moai. It is part of the 5th Region of Valparaíso. In the local language, Rapa Nui means "Big Island" and the local is also called "Te pito te henúa" (navel of the world) and - even - "Mata ki Te Rangi" (eyes fixed on the sky) (WIKIPEDIA-PT - 2006).

In throughout the island there are about 887 monolithic statues (made ​​from a single block of stone). The largest statue has 10 meters of height and 90 tons. There are three types of giant statues:

The first statues are located on the beaches to the edge of the sea. Their number is about 200 to 260 and some are at a distance of 20 km from the volcano where were found the rocks with that were modeled.

The second group is of the statues that are erected at the base of "Rano Raraku". Statues appear to be finished, but they are different from others, because their bodies are covered by symbols. The eye sockets are not carved and lack - on them - or they not have, the hat - called "punkao". These are more mysterious than the others.

The third group is the most known of all. They are called "tukuturi" - and have the particularity of have legs. They were compared with the statues of the pre-Inca nations and created serious doubts about the theory of common origin of these populations.

The mystery of the Easter Island is that their ancient inhabitants, the builders of the statues, they disappeared.

The people that the colonizers found living there;natives of islands nearby - they nothing know about another nation or about the statues. All indicate that the island was abandoned in remote past.

The workmen left their tools and workshops. The causes of this lack of informations, the motive of the abandon are only speculations: natural catastrophe, such as a tsunami or an invasion or - even - an epidemic without corpses.

The relics of Easter Island are the most eloquent and astonishing memories of the early giants. They are as imposing as mysterious and just look at the heads of the colossal statues ... for recognize the characteristics and appearance attributed to the Fourth Race giants. Seem all made by the same mold, even they had different faces ...they have a kind clearly sensual, like the Atlanteans (the Daityas and Atlanteans) of the esoteric books of the Hindus.

The statues of Ronororaka (above) are four: three are deeply buried in the ground and one is resting, on the shoulders, like a man asleep. Their types differ, although all have a long head and clear pictures that represent "portraits", by the noses, mouths and chins, that vary greatly. The head covering - a kind of boring hat, with an additional piece to protect the neck - proof that the originals were not savages of the Stone Age.

Moai submerged off the coast of Easter Island. The diving to observe the statues is a tourist attraction.


On Easter Sunday, the fifth day of April 1722, the Dutch captain Jacob Hoggeveen, landed on the island. It was the first unknown face that the 6,000 inhabitants of the island saw. Some decades later the population was only 111 survivors ... The unique town of the island, Hanga Roa, is a charming village full of flowers, dogs, horses, their owners and some tourists ... IN BRASIL MERGULHO

The Lemurians built huge cities. They used marble and lava. "They carved their own life-size images and with their similarity and worshiped them. Were governed by a "divine king" - (BLAVATSKY, 2001 - 334/335)... they cultivated the arts, sciences and also had the knowledge of the astronomy, architecture, mathematics. Were the Lemurians sixth sub-race that lived this civilization.

"One of those great cities of primitive structure, was all built of lava some thirty miles from the site where Easter Island now stretches its narrow strip of barren soil; a city that a series of eruptions destroyed completely. The most ancient remains of cyclopean buildings are the work of the last subraces Lemurians " (IDEM).

THE SEVEN HUMAN RACES

The Theosophical anthropogenesis, all of it based on ancient Hindu scriptures and Tibetan, postulates that the human species appeared on Earth in the same time of the emergence of the planet itself. The specie or nature, human, is essentially the same but biologicaly, the races, differ in their biochemical and anatomical constitution always in correspondence with his spiritual development.

The Races are or will be seven. The human Race of nowadays is the Fifth "Human Race". If even could exist individuals of the First Human Race, he or she would have the age of the Earth and - as Earth in its infancy, their bodies would be gaseous masses in a circular shape.

The Second, would be a little more dense, it would still be ethereal. They are called "Race Hyperborea" and inhabited the north polar region.

The Third Race, began his journey having also - ontologically - bodies of subtle matter. They were called "the without-bones" and were asexual. The evolution of the Third Race - produced, in its last generations, beings endowed with a bony skeleton, agigantadas dimensions - relative to current sapiens. Initially. they were bisexuals. Only later they became heterosexuals, divided into genres, males and females. This occurred at the end of the period of existence of this human kind.

These were the Lemurians, who lived in the cities of lava and inhabited a vast continent that occupied the current Pacific Ocean and Atlantic areas also. This continent was submerged with the end of civilization of Lemuria, caused by geological convulsions as earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.

The Fourth Race are the Atlanteans, so called because of the legend that tells of a brilliant civilization that flourished in what today is the Atlantic Ocean, ie between Europe / Africa and the Americas.

The Fifth Race is the current, whose appearance, according archeology and anthropology is dated back in nearly a million years.

The Sixth and Seventh Races are of human beings who are yet to come and tend to be more evolved than its predecessors in all aspects of the existence being integrated by individuals, really - much more smart.

"One of the earliest legends of India, preserved in the temples by oral and written tradition holds that there are several hundred thousand years, there was in the Pacific Ocean, an immense continent which was destroyed by geological convulsions and whose fragments can be seen in Madagascar, Ceylon, Sumatra, Java, Borneo and the main islands of Polynesia ....

A religious belief, common from Malacca to Polynesia, is that, between these two extreme points of the Oceania, says that all the islands that exist in this region nowadays, formed - in remote times, two huge countries [that reunited Atlantic lands and Polynesian lands] ... the ocean ... flooded the two continents ... only the peaks of mountains and the more tall plateaus escaped the deluge ...

In with regard to the Polynesian continent, which disappeared at the time of the great geological cataclysms, its existence is based on evidence such that, within the logic, can not be doubted.

The three most high points of the continent, Sandwich Islands, New Zealand and Easter Island are separated by a distance of 1,500 and a 1.800 leagues, and groups of intermediate islands, Viti (Fidji), Samoa, Tonga , Fortuna, Ouvea, the Marquesas, Tahiti, Pumuta, the Gambier Islands, distant from those extreme points around 700, 800 or 1,000 leagues.

All mariners are unanimous in saying that the groups of the extremes and central groups could not communicate with each other by virtue of its geographical position and by the insufficient resources at their disposal. It is physically impossible to implement similar distances in a pirogue ... without a compass, and more - to be able to travel for months without enough provisions.

On the other hand, the aborigines of the Sandwich Islands, of Viti, New Zealand, the core groups of Samoa, Tahiti etc., don't had knowledge nor never had heard one of other before the Europeans arrived. However, each of these people stated that their island was once part of a vast area of ​​land extending itself westward toward Asia. Confronting individuals of all these nations or tribes, was noted that they were speaking the same language, had the same customs and had adopted the same religious belief. And, face to the question: Where is the cradle of your race? - All of them, in response, pointed the hand in direction to the setting sun. "

Hey there, mate! :flop:

:D Yes, isn't Blavatsky's something?

"The aim of this work may be thus stated: to show that Nature is not 'a fortuitous concurrence of atoms,' and to assign to man his rightful place in the scheme of the Universe; to rescue from degradation the archaic truths which are the basis of all religions; and to uncover, to some extent, the fundamental unity from which they all spring." -- H.P. Blavatsky in Preface of S.D.
