CHAPTER VIII.

THE
Atlantians of either sex are almost

perfect in their physical organizations.

They are nearly all equally trained by

the master of wisdom. It may be asked why they

are not all on the same plane of development.

The reply is the conclusive answer of all ages

and times. Man never has and never will ex

ercise his individual potency in exactly the same

way. The little variation, hardly perceptible at

first, is increased by every increment, no matter

how small, of each of the succeeding lives. This

difference is increased also by the force of intel

lectual power which comes to a nation and of

necessity to the individuals of the nation, who

will seek to occupy the best bodies and positions,

as the returning egos claim place in the lives.

"Because of the absolute equality of the sexes

the bodies of the women are just as strong and

vigorous as those of the men. But we know

that in other nations, with which we have come

in contact, in other parts of the world, the

women are inferior in size and strength. This

happens because the people of those nations have

allowed themselves from generation to genera

tion, and from age to age, to believe in and as

sert the inferiority of women. This continued

thought has belittled and dwarfed her, not only

in body, but has also bound her aspirations and

her mental capacity with bonds stronger than

steel. While the barbarian races, to their sor

row and loss, have made this sad mistake, the

Atlantian nation, on the other hand, have con

stantly held to the equality of the sexes. The

result now is, physically, both sexes are models

which painter or sculptor are proud and eager

to copy. Each one is a specimen of beauty, for

perfection is beauty. The action of the climate

to learn that hundreds of Arab laborers, under

the direction of able engineers, are now engaged

in restoring those ancient ruins, the largest and

best preserved of any in Egypt which have

reached these times.

"All of these twenty-seven columns will be

reconstructed and placed in their original posi

tion. The uppermost member of each column

weighs 1242 tons. The architraves weigh 25

tons each.

"Modern engineering processes are not equal to

the task of reconstructing this work, so a huge

inclined plane, requiring ioo,OOO cubic meters

of earth, after the manner of the ancient arch

itects, will be constructed and removed when the

work is finished, which it is expected will be com

pleted by May of 1904.

"In December last M. Legran, in charge of

the work, came upon a wonderfully beautiful bust

of one of Egypt s olden gods. Other portions

of the statue have subsequently come to light, and

it is hoped the residue may be found and restored

to its entirety, save, possibly, a small piece to

complete one of the legs. This statue, labeled

Khonsu of Thebes, God of the Day, will be

pieced in the reconstructed Temple, and it is

expected other treasures of ancient art will be

unearthed in the farther removal of the debris

of ages which has accumulated in these ruins."
