isis unveiled: chapter IX (as above, so below…)

Professor Denton submitted a fragment of fossilized bone to his wife’s examination, without giving Mrs. Denton any hint as to what the article was. It immediately called up to her pictures of people and scenes which he thinks belonged to the stone age. She saw men closely resembling monkeys, with a body very hairy, and “as if the natural hair answered the purpose of clothing.”

“I question whether he can stand perfectly upright; his hip-joints appear to be so formed, he cannot”, she added. “Occasionally I see part of the body of one of those beings that looks comparatively smooth. I can see the skin, which is lighter colored…I do not know whether he belongs to the same period…At a distance the face seems flat; the lower part of it is heavy; they have what I suppose would be called prognathous jaws.

The frontal region of the head is low, and the lower portion of it is very prominent, forming a round ridge across the forehead, immediately above the eyebrows…Now I see a face that looks like that of a human being, though there is a monkey-like appearance about it. All these seem of that kind, having long arms and hairy bodies.””

H. P. Blavatsky
