If we are really to understand the meaning behind the Brotherhood of the Seven Rays and the Golden Sun Disc of Mu we must go back in time on Earth to one billion years ago. After the Earth planet had cooled, and was ready for inhabitants, a race arrived from out of space that was not human, but was of the race of original true man. They were called Cyclopeans, and are known in the secret, arcane knowledge as the 'L' Race or simply, the 'Els.' Before coming to the Earth planet they traversed space following all the great cycles of Time; they were Titans who rode the starways (and they still do in another dimension of Time and Space) and sought always the best pastures of space for their flock. They were the first life upon the Earth and are the Immortals of our legends, the God Race or Elder Race that preceded man.
Some of the Els were true Cyclops in that they had only one great central eye in the middle of their forehead. Others had two eyes like human beings, and still others had the development of the psychic third eye. They were about twelve feet tall and were male and female, but not as we think of sex differentiation today. Before coming to Earth they had colonized much of what is known today as the Milky Way Galaxy; thousands of suns and worlds came under their influence. They usually preceded other life forms to a world after it was ready for habitation. Once they took up existence on a new planet they attempted to leave behind what we can only call great libraries in their deep, underground empire of enormous cities. In these libraries tiny crystal records contain the history of the Universe, and are enclosed in a magnetic field, which at times, finds an affinity with some 'sensitive' person living on the Earth today.
The Els were not exactly three-dimensional beings as we are today, although they were definitely physical creatures in a physical world. They had been attempting for countless ages, as a race, to achieve a Timeless condition, that it, to reach a place where they could not only create by mere thought, but escape from the chains of physical existence to break the ties that bound them to physical planets and systems. They were searching for the great secret that would make them Immortals, that they might march across Time and the Stars fettered by nothing.
The Earth planet was possibly the last world they colonized in the Milky Way Galaxy, for soon after their arrival here they achieved the power of creative thought. They conquered physical matter and became Gods. They annihilated Time and Space; no longer did they have need of the Earth world or the great Galaxy it belonged to. They were free! They had become true members of the Thought Universe, the Theta Universe.
Actually, the Els were not known by that name until they achieved this Theta condition. Before this they were known as the Cyclopean Race. It was their methodof leaving physical existence and conditions that gave them the name of Els. Through the secret use of the Ninety Degree Phase Shift they abandoned the Earth and the entire Galaxy and left it vacant for humanity.
A ninety-degree angle forms the letter 'L.' Therefore, when we call them Els we are referring to a symbolof their race and not really to a name.Many words today have been derived from the name of this most ancient race. That is why they are called the El-der Race. The words elevationand eliminateare clearly from this source. Did not the Els elevate to another dimensional condition? Did they not eliminate Time and Space? If you will but look in any dictionary, you will discover some astounding things among the words that start with EL and L. Then there is the magnificent word Elohim; and the Twenty-Four Eldersof Holy Scripture.
On April 24, 1955, Koot Hoomi Lal Singh (Master Kuthumi) reported:
'Over the planet stands the great Presence of the Beloved Elohim, Cyclopea. His radiation covers the entire Earth.'
Master Kuthumi is obviously referring to a member of the great Elder Race. Although, in 1956, most of the Els were no longer on Earth, they still acted as Mentors, and were usually the Teachers of the Earth's Masters or Saints. We say most of the Els were no longer on our planet, because some of them did not leave when their race achieved the Theta condition and conquered M-E-S-T (Matter-Energy-Space-Time). Because of certain karmic reactions, a few members of the Cyclopean Race did not pass through the Ninety Degree Phase Shift, and were forced to remain on Earth to work out their destiny, eventually to rejoin their race in a later age. In the meantime, they would act as Mentors to hu-man beings when the latter arrived on Earth.
Aramu-Muru (God Meru) was a member of the Cyclopean Race. He has retained the same physical form for untold ages, renewing his lifestream energy by polarization with his feminine aspect, Arama-Mara. For, as already stated, these beings do not reproduce as a hu-man does.
Lord Muru says that when he was on Lemuria he was a young student or man. However, he can mean many things by this. Perhaps he means 'young' in things Universal, and by 'man' he can mean that he is of the race of original true man. Many of the wise men of Lemuria, and earlier in Mu itself, were Cyclops. (We do not call them Els because they had not yet achieved the Theta Universe.) All of these Cyclops left Lemuria and journeyed to other parts of the world; therefore, many of the Spiritual Heads of Mystery Schools (Inner Retreats) were Cyclops who would one day rejoin their Elder Race and become true Els.
The Brotherhood of the Seven Rays had its original beginning with the Cyclopeans since they were the first to manifest the Seven Rays of Life upon the Earth planet. These beings projected from themselves a special radiation of energy which enabled the Seven Rays of Life to be established on our planet, and without this, there could never have been a Brotherhood of the Seven Rays. Also, the Cyclopeans passed the Seventh Condition and entered Theta, the Eighth or Thought Universe.
The Golden Sun Disc of Mu was not made by the Cyclopeans, although the principle of its operation and the secret of its power was to be found in the abandoned libraries of the underground Cyclopean cities, Those sensitive enough to tune in to such know- ledge in the later ages of hu-man, discovered these Truths and made the construction of the Golden Disc possible, Thus, the Disc found its way into the life of the Motherland of Mu,
Let it be known that man on Earth will never become an L, but he will achieve a Timeless condition as they did, for the present plan of the Hierarchy is: the production of a subjective synthesis in humanity and of a telepathic interplay which will eventually annihilate time!
While man will not be an L, simply because he does not belong to the Cyclopean Race (now the El Race), he will conquer M-E-S-T, and reign as a true God, a Son of the Creator.
 We say 'were Cyclops' because they are no longer on the Earth as we shall explain in Part VI.
