Plastic Wax Factory Vol 06 74 - MU

MU. Sunken continent one thousand miles south of Easter Island. Mu rose from the Pacific Ocean in the time of the Elder Things. It was later colonized by the Cthulhu-spawn, who retained it after the war vith the Elder Things until they sank beneath the waves with R'lyeh. Mu was supposedly the land where humans first appeared, spreading from there to the rest of the world. In Hyperborearian times, Mu paid tribute to the polar kingdom, but at the same time even the wizard Eibon acknowledged the potency of Mu's incantations. Mu's civilizaion reached its heyday around 200,000 years ago, when its nine kingdoms wee in full flower. The gods were much closer to the people of Mu than to those of later times. Alongside humanity lived another more powerful species, described in various sources as the lloigor, another resembling the Great Race in material form, or the serpent people. Most of the population of Au viewed these as deities and worshiped through their intermediary, the god-priest K'tholo of Souchis. Aside
from these, the Muvians called on a thousand diferent gods, including Cthulhu, Iod, Yig, Shub-Niggurath, Byatis, and Vorvacbss (who saved the continent from an invasion of extradimensional beings). The three most popular gods, however, were the three "brothers" Zoth-Ommcg, Ghatanothoa, and Ythogtha.
The Muvian's devotion to these beings may have led to their downfall. Over time, the cult of Ghatanothoa became more powerful, until the Year of the Red Moon (173,118 B. C.) T'yog, priest of Shub-Niggurath, set out to challenge their authority by entering the god's prison in Mount Yaddith-Gho in the kingdom of K'naa. T'yog failed in his mision, and the Ghatanothoa cult became even more powerful until it threatened to close down the temples of all of Mu's other gods. The causes of Mu's destruction remain a mystery. Explanations include the following:
1) Gas pockets beneath the continent exploded, causing it to sink beneath the ocean.
2) The species which lived alongside th humans attempted to reach the next stage in their spiritual evolution too quickly. This attempt released  psychokinetic forces so powerful that they sank Mu, and these beings were forced to knock themselves unconscious to prevent themselves and the world from being destroyed.
3) According to the Zanthu Tablets, in the fear of the Whispering Shadow (161,844 B. C.) Zanthu, high priest of Ythogtha tried to summon up his god to counter the power of Ghatanothoa. The Elder Gods took notice of this offense and sank Mu before Ythogtha could be unleashed.
4) The humans of Mu and the serpent people spliced together their genes to create a new hybrid species embodying the best of both species. These creatures not only sought to become gods through the worship of Ghatanothoa, contacted Yig and ridiculed him, leading the Great Old One to destroy the continent.
The survivors of Mu fled to the regions around the Pacific, where most of them remain to this day. The high priest K'tholo traveled from Mu to South America, and thence to Yucatan, where he was killed in a volcanic explosion. Zanthu made his way to the Plateau of Tsang, where he was buried. Evidence of Mu may be found in the ruins on Ponape and Easter Island, and also in the books Unaussprechlichen Killten, The Ponape Scripture, the Zanthu Tablets, and the works of Harold Hadley Copeland.
[The source of Mu lies in the priest Diego de Landa's mistaken attempts to reconstruct a phonetic Mayan alphabet. Much later, the Abbé Brasseur tried to read the Troano Codex,
and believed that it told how a land called "Mu" sank beneath the ocean (the book is actually an astronomical treatise). Some earlier Muvian scholars such as Augustus Le Plongeon thought Mu and Atlantis were the same. The most famous proponent of Mu, "Colonel" James Churchward, placed it in the Pacific, where most subsequent authors of both occultism and fiction have left it.]
