¶Mankind migrated to this planet in his divine soul body during the Sat Yuga, the age of enlightenment. He had reached a final stage of evolution on his native planet. The risk in migrating to a fire planet was great, but so was the reward. They were, however, at a place in evolution requiring a planet with fire in it to catalyze them through new experiences into completing their unfoldment to the final realization of the Self. Souls came from the other planets to Earth for one of two reasons: either they came to realize the Self, because they had not previously done so and were just drifting in bliss, or were great beings who already had the Self realized and came to help the others. They came from everything in a state of status quo. They had come to this planet to get jostled around in the fire to continue their unfoldment.
¶When a planet becomes old, it cools. Everything becomes static in it and on it. The beings inhabiting it exist together like a flock of birds or school of fish, so peaceful they are. Souls, who need fire to realize the Self, could not do so on such an old planet, so the leaders pilgrimaged with their followers to perform the austerity of evolution on a fire planet such as Earth, a hot planet, a young planet. There will be other planets ready to be colonized at the end of the Kali Yuga. Inhabitants of Earth will be able to rapidly access them by traveling as a ray of their own inner light.
-925,342,121 Scrolls: The first time period (manvantara) referenced in Lemurian Scrolls begins [determined by calculating backwards from 1879, when man first learned to "light the night by his own devices"]. This is understood to be the first "cycle of yugas" in which there is a relationship between Earth and souls from several major planets in the galaxy. (In the Hindu time perspective, chanted today by priests at the start of puja, the universe was, at this point, in the fourth manvantara of the 51st year of Brahma.)
Science: Earth becomes a recognizable but not yet habitable planet. Land masses are still forming, with many volcanic eruptions. The Earth has undergone more than 2.5 billion years of development, and the universe is more than 15 billion years old.
-616,994,121 Scrolls: Second manvantara begins.
Science: Earth becomes habitable; water evaporates, forming air.
Scrolls: Earth is seeded for future populations. "During the second cycle of yugas, celestial beings arrived from other planets bringing with them vegetation. Their spaceships passing over the Earth's surface dropped seeds and foliage...."
-435,000,000 Science: First evidence of plant life.
Scrolls: Souls come to Earth and incarnate as animals. "Celestial beings came en masse and hovered over the Earth in their etheric bodies. Some became the birds and small and large animals...."
-410,000,000 Science: First land animals appear.
-308,446,121 Scrolls: Third manvantara begins.
-300,000,000 Science: Evidence of dinosaurs.
-120,000,000 Science: Evidence of earliest warm blooded mammals.
-65,000,000 Science: Last of the dinosaurs disappear.
-4,318,121 Scrolls: Seventy chaturyugas have passed in the third manvantara, and Earth enters the Sat Yuga (prior to the one we are in now), beginning the 71st and final chaturyuga of the third manvantara.
Science: "Human" life appears.
Scrolls: Celestial beings manifest Earth bodies around their subtle form. "In the Sat Yuga, the air was thick and the Earth lush and tropical. The thick clouds of gases and healthful substances floating in the air were the materials the divine souls that came to the fire planet, as they referred to it, would use to materialize a physical body around the etheric body of the soul to express through while living on Earth....They acquired a full physical form and could eat normally, as the animals did on Earth at that time."
Scrolls: First temples are built to bring through more souls. "In order to bring these divine souls through into physical form during the Sat Yuga, great temples to each of these planets began to form...The celestial beings would stand on the pedestal and absorb the Earth's pungent substances and with it materialize strong physical bodies....But through the thousands of years that passed, it became a very rapid process, and the entire Earth became populated with celestial beings from several of the major planets in the galaxy...."
-3,500,000 Science: Evidence of Hominids, first walking upright "terrestrial animals," East Africa.
Scrolls: "As the Sat Yuga ended with the advent of the Treta Yuga, the ratio of divine beings to those entering the animal kingdom was something like three to one...."
-2,590,121 Scrolls: Treta Yuga begins. The first human body originating in the animal kingdom develops as a result of the original body being eaten by animals. "Many of these divine, Earthly bodies, constructed from fruit ambrosia, herbal essences and the pungent air, could no longer fly and have been eaten by the carnivorous beings of the animal kingdom....These souls got caught within the evolutionary cycle of the particular species that had eaten their original body....They finally cultivated a body similar to the first Earth body devoured long ago. This human body had animal instincts and was difficult to live in...."
Scrolls: Many of the souls who came during the second manvantara begin to evolve human bodies. "Even during this yuga, the small animals from the second cycle of yugas are coming into human form...."
-2,000,000 Science: Homo habilis appears. Known as "handy man," stone tools made by this species found in South Africa.
-2,000,000 Science: Australopithecus robustus, a vegetarian species, thrives in East Africa over next million years.
-1,900,000 Science: Evidence of first stone building in East Africa.
Scrolls: Human flesh bodies are perfected. "The Treta Yuga is a wonderful period in which intense cosmic rays still penetrate Earth. This makes such evolution possible as creating a flesh body that appears to be like the original one for these celestial beings caught in animal reincarnation cycles to inhabit. These flesh-and-bone bodies will last through the Dvapara and Kali Yugas..."
-1,800,000 Science: Homo erectus, considered the first humans, appear. Two skulls, one in Chad, central Africa, and another in Dmanisi, Georgia, are found.
Scrolls: Half are still in their original bodies. "One half to one half was the ratio during the Treta Yuga." "Toward [the Treta Yuga's] end, the ratio is one in the original body to three in the others."
Scrolls: Souls avoid being caught in the animal kingdom. "The few left who have original bodies will live in caves high in the mountains during the end of the Treta Yuga to avoid being caught in the fleshy, hot body of the animal...." "It has been observed, now that we are approaching the end of the Treta Yuga, that a sense of fear is being experienced for the first time as a result of eating wrong kinds of foods, along with losing some of the personal abilities to fly."
