A Synopsis of Paper 78: The Violet Race After the Days of Adam

Apart from the Nodite centers, most of the world languished in savagery when the second Garden was established in Mesopotamia. For ten thousand years the Adamic people labored peacefully along the rivers, working on irrigation and flood-control, perfecting their defenses, and preserving the culture of Adam.

The major Adamic migrations began around 25,000 BC. The two largest populations of the violet race were the Adamites in Mesopotamia and the Adamsonites on the southern shores of the Caspian Sea. The purer Nodites, pre-Sumerians, were in Mesopotamia.

The Andonites maintained representative settlements to the north of the Adamsonites and in Turkestan. Isolated Andonite groups persisted throughout Eurasia, Iceland, and Greenland, but they had been driven out of Europe and Asia. The red man occupied the Americas, the yellow race was in control of Asia, and the blue man held Europe. A blended mixture of all six colored races, mainly green, orange, and indigo, settled in pre-Dravidian India; an indigo-black group carrying submerged strains of green and orange had their most progressive settlements in the Sahara desert. A highly blended race of Saharans, blue men, and Nodites occupied the Mediterranean basin.

The early pure-line Adamic migrants scattered in three directions. Some went west into the valley of the Nile. A few penetrated eastward into Asia. The largest contingent of the violet people moved northward around the Caspian Sea into Europe. As they moved into Eurasia, the Adamites absorbed the best of the Nodites and Andonites. By 15,000 BC, more descendants of Adam inhabited Eurasia that any other region on earth. The stage was set for the emergence of the Andites.

The Andite race took origin in the regions near Mesopotamia. They were a blend of pure-line violet and Nodites, mixed with the best strains of the yellow, blue, and green men. They were pre‑Aryan and pre‑white, neither Occidental nor Oriental. When the deteriorated Nodites added a belligerent strain to the Andite mix, migrations began to take the form of military conquests. 

The Andite migrations occurred from 15,000 to 6,000 BC, mainly into Europe. By 12,000 BC three quarters of the Andites in the world were in northern and eastern Europe. Others had infiltrated China, India, Egypt, and both coasts of Africa. One hundred and thirty-two Andites traveled in boats from Japan to South America and founded the ancestry of the Incas. Others stopped permanently in the Pacific islands and mixed with the native groups there. As the Andites poured out of Mesopotamia, they strengthened the surrounding cultures, contributing art, music, manufacturing, agriculture, and the domestication of animals.

When the last three waves of Andites left Mesopotamia between 8000 and 6000 BC, the center of world civilization moved to the Nile and the Mediterranean. Five percent of  the purer Andites remained in their Mesopotamian homeland and became the Sumerians-Nodite by culture and Andite by inheritance.

Barbarians of Turkestan and the Iranian peninsula, driven south by drought, invaded the Euphrates valley and assimilated the remainder of  the Andites, taking over all except the Sumerian settlement. The resultant mix became the Babylonians, who adopted the arts of the valley tribes and much of the culture of the Sumerians. About 2500 BC, the Sumerians were conquered by invading northerners and subsequently were absorbed into the Semite race.
