Cayce referred to the lost land in the Pacific as Lemuria or Mu. The word Lemuria probably comes from old Roman times when Lemures were GHOSTS or SPIRITS. The Roman’s festival of the Lemures goes way back to Pagan practices – honoring the spirits of the dead, or perhaps keeping them away
Cayce was consistent –he said that for a very long time the western portion of Lemuria was at the Pacific coast of So. Am. He said it began to Disappear before Atlantis did and the final sinking was about 10,700 B.C. Reading 364-4. That would be the area of the Nazca plate on this map. The arrows indicate it is pushing against So. Am.
Another source for information besides Churchward and Cayce is Lewis Spence, the researcher whom I earlier. He wrote several very informative books on Atlantis but he also spent a great deal of time on Pacific Islands and communicating with the native people about the myths and legends of their past and investigating the hundreds of megalithic ruins. Spence states that from his research he believes Lemuria was several large islands in the Pacific and one was adoining Peru. It’s always exciting for me when an academic like Lewis Spence confirms what Edgar Cayce said. Spence believes that among the aboriginal people of the Pacific the number and consistency of myths and CHRONICLES of a former seafaring civilization are just as striking as the traditions of Atlantis – classical and otherwise.
