isis unveiled: chapter xv (knowledge is power)

“It is the opinion of Professor A. Wilder, that if the Assyrians had been called Turanians and the Mongolians Scyths, then, in such a case the wars of Iran and Turan, Zohak and Jemshid, or Yima, would have been fairly comprehended as the struggle of the old Persians against the endeavors of the Assyrian satraps to conquer them, which ended in the overthrow of Nineveh; “the spider weaving her web in the palace of Afrasiab.”

“The Turanian of Professor Muller and his school”, adds our correspondent, “was evidently the savage and nomadic Caucasian, out of whom the Hamite or Aethiopian builders come; then the Shemites – perhaps a hybrid of Hamite and Aryan; and lastly the Aryan – Median, Persian, Hindu; and later, the Gothic and Slavic peoples of Europe. He supposes the Celt to have been a hybrid, analogous to the Assyrians – between the Aryan invaders of Europe and the Iberic (probably Aethiopic), population of Europe.”

In such a case he must admit the possibility of our assertion that the Akkadians were a tribe of the earliest Hindus. Now, whether they were Brahmans, from the Brahmanic planisphere proper, (40 degrees north latitude), or from India (Hindustan), or, again, from the India of Central Asia, we will leave to philologists of future ages to decide.

An opinion which with us amounts to certitude, demonstrated by an inductive method of our own, which we are afraid will be, but little appreciated by the orthodox methods of modern science, is based on what will appear to the latter, merely circumstantial evidence.

For years we have repeatedly noticed that the same esoteric truths were expressed in identical symbols and allegories in countries between which there had never been traced any historical affiliation. We have found the Jewish Kabala and the Bible repeating the Babylonian “myths”, and the Oriental and Chaldean allegories, given in form and substance in the oldest manuscripts of the Siamese Talapoin (monks), and in the popular but oldest traditions of Ceylon.”

H. P. Blavatsky
