A human is a soul in a body.1 This soul is symbolized by the sun and this body is symbolized by the moon.2 So the human soul could be called ‘the solar human’ and the human body ‘the lunar human’. In the ageless wisdom terms like ‘solar angel’ and ‘agnisvatta’ are used to refer to the soul and ‘lunar angel’ and ‘lunar pitri’ to refer to the body.3, 4 Now the souls of humans, which are regarded as the real humans,5 and the bodies of humans have in principle their independent developments. However there are time periods in which both coincide. When bodies are in such a condition that they can contribute to the development of the souls, and the souls to the development of the bodies, then incarnations of specific souls in specific bodies occur. Now when in the ageless wisdom mention is made of root races reference is made to the collective of human bodies as the vehicle of human consciousness. (Human consciousness as a parallel and temporal coinciding evolution has been touched upon in 'Ageless Wisdom, Classifications of Humanity').6

Now the ageless wisdom mentions seven root races per globe, as also seven globes per chain and seven chains per planetary logos.7 Our planetary logos develops through seven chains, which develop each through seven globes, which develop each through seven root races (although a globe development entails more or course than only human development). Our point of development can be found in the fourth chain on the fourth globe. Our present chain is also called ‘the earth chain’ and the previous chain is called ‘the moon chain’.8, 9

At the end of each globe round within a chain the bodily essences of each kingdom on that globe are transferred to the corresponding globe of the next chain round.10 For instance the bodily essences of the mineral kingdom of the first globe of the first chain are after the end of the regarded globe round transferred to the first globe of the second chain. This means that the bodily essences of the humanity of the fourth globe of the third chain were at the closure of that globe transferred to the fourth globe of the fourth chain. The lunar essences of the earth globe of the moon chain were transferred to the earth globe of the earth chain.

The above means that the first root race of our present globe is born from the seventh root race of the corresponding globe of the previous chain, being the moon chain. It is therefore that this root race can be called ‘shadow born’. The lunar pitris of the earth globe of the moon chain have casted their shadows so to speak unto the earth globe of the earth chain, and from those shadows the first root race was formed.11 These shadows consisted of etheric substance (which H.P. Blavatsky called ‘astral’)12 and the first race was thus still very etheric in nature.13 This race is also called 'self born'.14 Being sexless they procreated in a way similar to amoebae through cell division.15, 16 Their bodies were however not yet developed enough to host the solar angels, thus the latter did not truely incarnate in the first root race,17 and the race remained unintelligent and without speech.18 This first root race appeared about one point six billion years ago and was ruled by the Law of Immersion, indicating the immersion of human life into matter.20, 20, 21

From the first root race developed the second root race, the so called 'Hyperboreans'.22 This root race was physically more dense and more humanoid,23 but it was still ethereal, giving it the name of the 'boneless' race.24 In this root race the first spark of intelligence appeared,25 but souls still not fully incarnated.26, 27 Their speech was thus limited to vowel expressions.28 This root race is also called ‘sweat born’ because, being a-sexual, they procreated through the secretion of substance, as plants do when budding.29, 30, 31, 32 This second root race was ruled by the Law of Capitulation, indicating the capitulation of matter to the urge of the human spirit to incarnate.33, 34

From this second root race the third root race developed. It was during this root race that humanity physically solidified.35, 36 At the start of the development the third root race still procreated through substance secretion, because of which the early third root race is also referred to as 'sweat born'.37 However in course of time this method of procreation changed into egg laying, making the third root race egg born,38 after which a development towards womb bearing took place.39 This development was accompanied by a development from sexlessness through androgyny towards a division in two sexes. Towards the end of the fourth sub race newly born humans were not able to directly walk and towards the end of the fifth sub race humans were born as they are now.40 It was then that the bodies were fully solidified and also fit for souls to incarnate in them.41, 42 Individualisation took place and the true humanity was born (for until then humans were not really distinct from animals).43 This happened about eighteen million years ago.44 Endowed with a spark of intelligence and guided by divine instructors this root race was able to develope some rudiment forms of speech and civilization.45, 46 This third root race is also called ‘the Lemurian race’, named after the continent Lemuria on which they lived.47 The goal of this third root race was development of and control over the physical body, and for this hatha and laya yoga were exercized.48, 49 Their vice was promiscuity, leading to the syphilitic diseases.50 With regards to the Lemurian vice it is also a remarkable teaching that the contemporary Hominidae (the humanoid primates) are the result of a procreation by mindless Lemurians with animals.51 This third root race was ruled by the Law of Materialisation or Hidden Radiance which names refer to the solidification of the body on the one side and the incarnating of the soul therein on the other side.52, 53

From this Lemurian race the fourth root race developed. The Lemurian continent sank away and the fourth root race lived on the continent of Atlantis, from which the name ‘Atlantean race’ is derived.54, 55 In this fourth root race emotion was developed.56 Desire and greed were their vices, leading to the tuberculosic diseases,57 and the inhibition thereof led to the cancerous diseases.58 Their yoga was bhakti yoga,59 directed at the transformation of desire into devotion.60 Emotion was so well developed in this root race that even our present, the fifth, root race is still overall emotionally polarized.61, 62 During this development the door towards individualisation (by which animals could pass into the human kingdom) was closed.63 The Atlantean race in its different sub races was very varied with colors of black, brown, red, white and yellow, and with heights varying from dwarfish to gigantic.64 Openly taught by the Masters of the Divine Hierarchy they reached unsurpassed levels of civilization.65, 66 However led by desire they misused the given knowledge and many of them started to practise black magic. This made the Masters with a major clash between white and black magicians retreat from openness,67 and the Atlantean continent sank into the purifying ocean to make place for a new continent.68 This fourth root race was ruled by the Law of the Tides, indicating the fluid tides of emotional consciousness.69, 70

The new continent became the habitat of the fifth root race, also called ‘the Aryan race’,71 which had emerged from the the Atlantean race. The name 'Aryan' is in the ageless wisdom not used in the abusive German sense,72 although somewhat confusingly sometimes also the term 'Caucasian' is applied to refer to this race.73 This can be somewehat confusing because, although the ageless wisdom has been using the term 'caucasian' to refer to the Indo-European or Aryan races,74 the contemporary use dominantly (though not exclusively) refers to only the white races.75 The Aryan race had, together with certain Atlantean races, survived on the high Asian plateaux from which the first colonized the new emerging lands from the region of India to the regions of the Mediterranean and Europe. The Atlantean races of different colors dispersed towards other areas such as East Asia, Africa and the Americas, and there were also those who got isolated on islands by rising waters.76 Thus offshoots of Atlantean races survived until the present day among the new Aryan races, just as there are still remnants of the Lemurian races in and around Australia.77 All are developing however under the influence of the fifth race cycle wherein the mind is developed.78, 79 In this cycle of the fifth root race we have arrived at the fifth of seven sub races,80 with the sixth sub race now being prepared.81 It is in our present period also that the Masters of the Hierarchy are starting to work openly among humanity again.82 The vice of the fifth root race is separation,83 and its yoga is Raja-yoga.84 The fifth root race is ruled by the Law of Cleavages, indicating the tendency of the mind to seperate.85, 86

The sixth root race will be developed towards the end of our present fifth root race. This root race is intended to develop the intuition.87 It is conceived that towards the end of the sixth root race there will eventuate a final clash between black and white magicians.88 This sixth root race shall be ruled by the Law of Loving Understanding.89

The sixth root race shall also commence a synthesis of all that humanity has garnered in development and the seventh root race shall complete that synthesis.90 It can thus be presumed that the seventh root race shall be ruled by the Law of Synthesis.91

It is found at a certain stage in every human being and in every race; it must therefore be remembered that I am not using the word Aryan as synonymous with Nordic but as descriptive of the intellectual goal of humanity, of which our Occidental civilisation is in the early stages, but which men of all time and all races have individually demonstrated. The Aryan state of consciousness is one into which all men eventually pass."

"I would here point out a fact that is little realised, that in this fivefold evolution of man and in this solar system, the two remaining rounds in any planetary cycle, and the sixth and seventh root-races in those cycles are always synthetic; their function is to gather up and synthesise that which has been achieved in the earlier five."
