The map to given below is a close up of what Kumari Continent might have looked like before the global warming. The grey lines are what is now the shoreline of Indonesia, Philippines and the countries that currently exist as island continents and the Asian continent and countries in the ocean. It is estimated that this landmass that united what is today Western Indonesia and the Philippines with mainland South East Asia, China, and Australia was over 1.7 million square kilometers in size.

Kumari Kandam

This enormous land mass had a large inland fresh water sea and apparently several smaller ones that might have supported a human population of millions. Kumaria was a 16 continent that existed for well over 30,000 years. This fact is substantiated by the changes in the ocean depths that remained low during that time – which, since then has risen 400 feet. The big thaw and the rapidly rising sea levels reduced Kumaria from 1.7 million square kilometers to less than 1 million square kilometers and increased coastlines more than threefold. The interior of Kumaria and the coastal areas where the heaviest concentrations of human population were located simply vanished beneath the sea. Traces of these ancient civilizations are being found off the coast of India, Japan, and other areas around the world.

The idea that there was an advanced ice age civilization is well founded. One clear example of such a civilization existed in the period of 35,000 to 12,000 years ago is found in Fukui Cave of Northern Kyushu Island, the south-western island of Japan, in the form of Jomon pottery containers. These (according to have been dated as slightly later than 12,750 +/- 500 years old, and therefore coinciding with the end of the advancing ice sheets and the increased global warming about 11,600 years ago (Joseph B. Lambert, Traces of the Past, 1997). The Jomon pottery most likely was taken to Fukui Cave of Kyushu by Jomon people of the ice age civilization when they fled the flooding of the surrounding lowlands during the worldwide deluge caused by
melting icecaps and related monsoons around 11,600 – 12,000 years ago.

These pottery containers were closed containers in which vegetables and fish could be steamed. This concept of steaming food is a relatively advanced concept as are the pottery containers.

Many stories of a lost continent and a lost civilization can be found in the folklore and writings of the ancient people. In Timaeus and Critias, Plato wrote the story of Atlantis a lost civilization that sank beneath the oceans. Ancient legends around the world tell of a great flood that swept the world thousands of years ago. Modern science has shown through the analysis of the earth’s ice caps and ocean levels that the earth experienced a great flood of cataclysmic proportions during 11,000 – 10,000 BC.

Current archaeological theories state that before 10,000 BC no early human civilizations developed agriculture or built great empires. Modern archaeology further states that during the Paleolithic age humans were hunters and gathers that lived a subsistence level comparable to the Neanderthal man.

Ancient literature of Tamil Nadu states differently. Contrary to general thought, according to these texts, a highly developed civilization existed during the ice age periods in the equatorial belt on Kumari Continent and in other places around the globe. The existence of music and musical instruments is a sign of a somewhat advanced culture. In China, the Institute of Cultural Relics and Archaeology of Henan Province, Zhengzhou, Henan, China holds a number of ancient flutes carbon dated to be over 9000 years old. These flutes are tuned very closely to modern pitch and have been exactly replicated to playable instruments.

Ancient Flutes

In the Indus Valley numerous sophisticated carpenters tools were found as well as advanced indoor water systems and architectural forms. These date as far back as 9000 B.C. The civilizations of that day were not as primitive in some parts of the world as previously thought. As mentioned earlier, ancient Tamil texts say that there was a great migration from Kumari Continent far and wide around the globe between 10000 and 11000 B.C. due to its being engulfed by the rising oceans. Certainly the sophistication of that society provided the means for such a mass migration. One of the individuals who migrated to the Indian mainland was an enlightened sage named Brahmarishi Mayan. It is this Rishi who cognized the Science and Art that is the subject of this book.

The Big Thaw and the dispersion of humanity – 1

In 15,000 BC the earth was a cold planet – an Ice making machine. The planet was in its fifth ice age. The glacial maximum (coldest period with maximum icecaps and lowest seal level) had occurred 2000 – 3000 years earlier. The world was colder and dryer and far less hospitable than today. The enormous ice sheets held massive amounts of water lowering sea levels. The world’s oceans were more than 460 feet lower than what they are today. This resulted in exposure of continental shelves, joined landmasses, and extensive coastal plains. (Fleming, et. al. (1998). “Refining the eustatic sea-level curve since the Last Glacial Maximum using far – and intermediate-field sites”. Earth and Planetary Science Letters 163 (1-4): 327-342).

The geography of the earth was significantly different from the present day and humanity lived primarily in a small concentrated area of the earth called the equatorial belt. The map below shows the earth as it may have looked in 15,000 BC. The land area between the two grey horizontal lines represents the equatorial belt and the grey area in the center (circled) is a landmass that existed 17,000 years ago.

Equatorial Belt

This continent was the most suitable landmass to support human civilization because it possessed tropical rain forest and an abundance of resources and wild life making it the Eden of the ancient world. This lost continent some call Oceania but it was called Kumari Continent or Kumaria according to the ancient literature of Tamil Nadu, South India. It is said, in the ancient literature, that it was here that the earth’s climate was conducive to support large agricultural based populations. This is where some scholars believe that the cradle of human civilization flourished and it is here that humanity developed a highly sophisticated society perhaps comparable to our own in many ways.

The areas of the uppermost and lower parts of the map in dark grey represent enormous glaciers that were as high as the Rocky Mountains and covered large portions of the world’s landmasses. The areas in light grey were tundra, which supported very little vegetation and sparse life. The earth was a cold, dry planet and these areas lacked warmth, rainfall and moisture.

The darkest grey color within the equatorial belt (what is now Central Africa and Central America and Northern South America) represents areas of the earth that supported plant and animal life. Some of these areas were desert and these large land masses were colder in temperature Equatorial belt 15 than Oceania, due to warmer ocean currents. Humans most likely lived in these areas but most of these areas were not conducive to support large populations that could develop agriculture and civilizations.

About 15,000 BC the ice sheets stopped advancing and the earth began to warm slowly. Around 12,000 BC, an unknown geological or cosmic event triggered a sudden spectacular thawing of the earth – a mass global warming. The enormous glaciers that covered most of the earth quickly melted filling the oceans with water causing ocean encroachment into the low-lying coastal areas where much of human population existed. Within a relatively short span of time the melting waters from the glaciers rapidly elevated the sea levels and submerged enormous landmasses, including much of Kumari Continent, reshaping the geography and the living space of humanity.

The rapid thawing of the earth and the receding Ice Age were cataclysmic. Tidal waves of massive proportions swept the shorelines of ancient earth and consumed them beneath the rapidly rising oceans. Along with these events, the global warming caused extensive evaporation, which then caused extended monsoons that caused an inundation of the land with flooding. Entire continents of land submerged beneath the rising oceans and gigantic super hurricane force storms and monsoons long lasting swept the planets surface.

Because of the gigantic loss of landmass, groups of inhabitants from Kumari Continent migrated from their homelands to other habitable places on the earth. These groups may have been the legendary 12 lost tribes. Some researchers believe that the native language of these people was an ancient form of Tamil.
