1893 Excerpt: ...We of the present times call an age a "century."
They of Plato's day, the initiated writers, at any rate, by a
millennium meant not 1,000 but 100,000 years; while the Hindus,
more independent than any, have never concealed their chronology.
Thus, for 9,000 years, the Initiates will read 900,000 years,
during which space of time--i.e., from the first appearance of the
Aryan Race, when the Pliocene portions of the once great Atlantis
began gradually sinking and other continents to appear on the
surface, down to the final disappearance of Plato's small island of
Atlantis A.--the Aryan races had never ceased to fight with the
descendants of the first giant races. This war lasted till nearly
the close of the age which preceded the Kali Yuga, and was the
Mahabharata, or Great War, so famous in Indian history. Such
blending of events and epochs, and the bringing down of hundreds of
thousands into thousands of years, does not interfere with the
numbers of years that have elapsed, according to the statement made
by the Egyptian priests to Solon, since the destruction of the last
portion of Atlantis. The 9,000 years were the correct figures. The
latter event had never been kept a secret, and had only faded out
of the memory of the Greeks. The Egyptians had their records

Herodotus, if we do not take into account the Bible, and its queer
chronology And how little Herodotus could tell is confessed by
himself when, speaking of a mysterious tomb of an Initiate at Sals,
in the sacred precinct of Minerva, he says: ...
