Development of Modern Civilization

The Cradle of Civilization  •  The Tools of Civilization  •  Cities, Manufacture, and Commerce  •  The Mixed Races  •  Cultural Society  •  The Maintenance of Civilization

REGARDLESS of the ups and downs of the miscarriage of the plans for world betterment projected in the missions of Caligastia and Adam, the basic organic evolution of the human species continued to carry the races forward in the scale of human progress and racial development. Evolution can be delayed but it cannot be stopped.


The influence of the violet race, though in numbers smaller than had been planned, produced an advance in civilization which, since the days of Adam, has far exceeded the progress of mankind throughout its entire previous existence of almost a million years.
