A member of The Stelle Group asked Richard if the religious beliefs of so-called primitive peoples are perhaps closer to original Lemurian roots than the religions popular in modern civilizations. Richard responded with an emphatic “yes”. A good test of the relative advancement of a people is the way children and pets are treated. In most civilizations today, the power to control others is vested in people who never see those whom they control. This can have a brutalizing effect, causing leaders to deal with people coldly as depersonalized units.


     Often the weaponry of primitive peoples makes it necessary for them to meet in hand-to-hand combat if they are to fight. It is very difficult to kill a man whom you are looking straight in the eye. Therefore, primitive peoples in many instances have developed kinder ways of dealing with their fellow man. (01-1970)
