LEMURIA LIST FAQs
1. What is Lemuria?
It's an ancient land predating any civilization we currently know. There is some disagreement about where it was located, what the inhabitants looked like, etc., but most seem to put it as a continent in the Pacific ocean. The name is actually "Mu", someone named an ancient land that sunk near India "Lemuria" and it seems to have stuck in reference to the ancient land that pre-dates Atlantis.
2. Are Lemuria and Atlantis related?
Some believe that Atlantis and Lemuria were around partially at the same time and that the more scientific-rational group inhabited Atlantis, and Lemuria had more individuals that were more artistically and spiritually inclined. Some also believe that large-scale experiments which took place in Atlantis caused the eventual destruction of both civilizations because of dramatic geo-physical dislocations.
3. Why is there so much discussion of aliens on this list?
Some believe that Mu was populated from another planet, so any and all discussion of alien origin, or return, or activities has been of interest to some, and has been shared on the list. Some of the military related postings also relate to this because it is believed by some that certain alien species have infiltrated for their own nefarious purposes.
4. Why is there so much spiritual discussion on this list?
Some are interested in returning to the more peace-loving society that existed in Mu. Some are curious about the beliefs of ancient Lemurians. It appears that many on the list would like to bring us back to a kind of Lemurian utopia now. Because of all of this, there is a lot of posting of material that is sprititually-oriented. There is a sub-group that is trying to live the "Lemurian Way". There also is some channeled material that is presented. Some feel that they have lived lives as Lemurians and are just waking up to it in this incarnation. There is also a lot of New Age material distributed in this vein.
5. Are there any scientists or classical historians among the list?
Yes, and sometimes there is heated debate! Many are also interested in the archeological findings about Mu, and what kind of technology they had. It is said that they had very advanced, non-polluting technology and of course, many of us are keenly interested in its discovery and use again in the modern world.
6. Are there some archives of the list available?
Not at the present time, but there are a few select
listings, a kind of 'best of the list' are
available by request. Currently available are
Best of Lemuria #1 What does it mean to be a Lemurian?
To receive these by e-mail, send mail to Anna anna at annalou.com
7. Are there some books I can read to get some background/deepen my understanding about Mu?
Yes. The list is NOT in order of importance. The scientists/historians among us would recommend starting (and perhaps ending) with Churchward. Since the continent was 'lost', there is not a lot of 'scientific' material. But there are some channeled sources etc. Here is a partial list
