Hans Stefan Santesson wrote a published a book in 1970 entitled "Understanding Mu" that attempts to explain the theories of James Churchward. One chapter is "The Uighurs" and is reproduced here.
Figure 14: The Great Uighur Empire during the Tertiary Era.
|CHURCHWARD describes the great Uighur Empire as the largest and most important colonial empire belonging to Mu,the Empire of the Sun. "Next to Mu herself, the Uighur Empire was the largest empire the world has ever known."
The eastern boundary of the Uighur Empire was the Pacific Ocean. The western boundary was about where Moscow now stands,* with settlements extending tllrough central Europe to the Atlantic. The southern boundary (See Figure 14) cut through what is now Northern Persia, India, and present-day North Vietnam.
The history of the Uighurs can be said to be the history of the Aryan races, for all the true Aryan races descended from Uighur forefathers. The Uighurs formed chains of settlements across central Europe in Tertiary times. After the Empire was destroyed by the great magnetic cataclysm and the raising of the mountains, tlle survivors and their descendants once more formed settlements in Europe. This was during the Pleistocene time. The Slavs, Teutons, Celts, Irish, Bretons and Basques, are all descended from Uighur stock. The Bretons, Basques, and genuine Irish (Churchward's term) are the descendants of those who came to Europe in Tertiary times, descendants of those who survived the raising of the mountains.
Legends all through the East tell how the whole of Central Asia, including the Himalayas, was at one time a flat, cultivated land of fertile fields, forests, lakes and rivers, with magnificently constructed roads and highways connecting the various cities and towns with each other. These were well built cities, huge temples and public institutions, elaborate private houses and palaces of the rulers.
Today the land is a desert. You have to dig fifty

|feet down through a stratum of boulders, gravel and sand, before you reach the ruins of Kara Khota, but elsewhere in the Gobi Desert, where the waters did not wash away all the soil to bare rocks, you can see the dried-up beds of rivers, canals and lakes that existed before the disaster.
The Uighurs, who appear to have been, like the Quetzals, of a light complexion with milk-white skins, with blue eyes and light hair predominating in the north, were the first colonists from Mu. Naacal records, found by Churchward in one of the Tibetan monasteries, tell how the Naacals, seventy thousand years earlier, had brought to the Uighur capital cities copies of the Sacred Inspired Writings of the Motherland. Churchward was told by his Rishi that when the great flood swept up over eastern and northeastern Asia it destroyed the Uighur capital city, drowning an of the inhabitants, and buried a great library which had been brought there by the Naacals from the Motherland. Many years afterwards, the Naacals in the West, whom the flood had not reached, went to these ruins and dug up the tablets and carried them to a temple in the West. There they remained until the mountains were raised and the temple was destroyed, once more burying the records. Many, many years afterwards, the descendants of those Naacals who had survived the raising of the mountains, went and dug them out again and brought them to the temple where they are now deposited.
Churchward states that neither this monastery nor the tablets are unknown, and that they are well known to oriental scholars. And that to his own personal knowledge five Europeans-three Englishmen and two Russians-had visited this monastery. He also quotes his Rishi as stating that the Naacal library deposited in the secret archives of the temple located at "Ayhodia" was never discovered by those who sacked the city, and presumably remains there, under the ruins, intact.
He answers critics, in the next breath, by stating that it had been suggested to him (by whom?) that he withhold all names of places, routes, passes, in Tibet, Kashmir and Northern India, "which might be of value in a political sense. The reason given for withholding this
|information," writes Colonel Churchward, "is a perfectly valid one. I feel it my duty and pleasure to comply with the suggestion."*
But let us retum to Kara Khota.
From the roofs of the capital city down to the foundations of Kara Khota, the stratum is composed of boulders, gravel and sand, very much as in the Valley of Mexico. Churchward believes that this particular flood was the north-running wave of the Last Magnetic Cataclysm, the Biblical "Flood."
Back in the 1880's, while still with the army in India, Churchward was with an expedition making a geological investigation from a point south of Lake Baikal to the mouth of the Lena River and to the islands beyond in the Arctic Ocean. Their examinations along the route disclosed the fact that some thousands of years earlier a huge cataclysmic wave of water without ice had passed over this area, traveling from south to north. They found no traces of this flood beyond 110 degrees East of Greenwich, but did find evidences of this wave to the limit of their easterly travels. They did not find a single ice marking in any part of Siberia that they covered that could in any way be connected with this wave. Everywhere the proofs were positive that the wave had passed from south to north, the valley of the Lena appearing to be the main course of the water.
Llakoff's Island is located off the mouth of the Lena. They found that the island was composed (the word composed is Churchward's) of the bones and tusks of mammoths and other forest animals which had been swept up from the Mongolian and Siberian plains by the flood, and carried to this final resting place. In the very fact of these bones was added proof that no ice had accompanied the wave, for had there been, their bodies and bones would have been mashed into a pulp, and there would have been no Llakoff's Island.
Sometime after the flood-Churchward had found no records telling when this happened-the mountains were raised. As the mountains went up, the land was literally shaken and torn to pieces by earthquakes, with here
* It is of course unfortunate that he did so. It has made it more difficult to properly evaluate his theories.
|and there volcanoes belching out streams of lava, adding to the destruction. The various mountains emerging through and around the Gobi changed its watersheds. The broken condition of the rocks underneath drained the water from the surface and formed underground rivers. With all water gone from the surface, the Gobi became what it is today, a sandy, rocky, inhospitable waste. At the same time, as Churchward points out, water can be found within a few feet of the surface in sandy areas. Their party found water from seven to ten feet below the surface.
Churchward raises, repeatedly, the possibility that monks in some of the monasteries in Tibet and in the Himalayas, while perhaps nominally Buddhist, may be the descendants of those Naacals who were driven out of India some three thousand years ago. He wrote that he knew of three such monasteries. We can only speculate on what has happened to them in the intervening years.
And, for that matter, to the ruins of Kara Khota.
