anthropogenesis: the final evolution of man (stanza ix)

“36.   THE FOURTH RACE DEVELOPED SPEECH.

 
The Commentaries explain that the First Race – the ethereal or astral Sons of Yoga, also called “Self-born” – was, in our sense, speechless, as it was devoid of mind on our plane.

 
The Second Race had a “Sound-language”, to wit, chant-like sounds composed of vowels alone.

 
The Third Race developed in the beginning a kind of language which was only a slight improvement on the various sounds in Nature, on the cry of gigantic insects and of the first animals, which, however, were hardly nascent in the day of the “Sweat-born” (the early Third Race).

 
In its second half, when the “Sweat-born” gave birth to the “Egg-born” (the middle Third Race), then only was speech developed. But even then it was still no better than a tentative effort.

 
Speech then developed, according to occult teaching, in the following order:

 
I.   Monosyllabic speech; that of the first approximately fully developed human beings at the close of the Third Root-Race, the “golden-colored”, yellow complexioned men, after their separation into sexes, and the full awakening of their minds.
Before that, they communicated through what would now be called “thought-transference.”

 
II.   These linguistic characteristics developed into the agglutinative languages.
The latter were spoken by some Atlantean races, while other parent stocks of the Fourth Race preserved the mother-language.

 
III.   The inflectional speech – the root of the Sanskrit – was the first language (now the mystery tongue of the Initiates, of the Fifth Race.)

 

 

37.   THE ONE (ANDROGYNE) BECAME TWO; ALSO ALL THE LIVING AND CREEPING THINGS THAT WERE STILL ONE, GIANT FISH, BIRDS, AND SERPENTS WITH SHELL-HEADS.

 
This relates evidently to the so-called age of the amphibious reptiles, during which age science maintains that no man existed!

 
But what could the ancients know of antediluvian prehistoric animals and monsters!”

 

H. P. Blavatsky
