Hyperborean Root Race

The second Root Race of this terrestrial humanity.

A nation mentioned in Greek mythology. The name means “beyond the North Wind,” thus they are supposed to have been somewhere north of Greece, but the name also means “beyond the mountains” and “those who carry (merchandise) across.” Apollo was said to spend the winter months among them, and his mother Leto was presumed to have been born in their land. Perseus went there searching for the Gorgon, and Heracles chased the Cerynitian hind to their country. The writer Pindar represented them as a blessed people untouched by human afflictions. H. P. Blavatsky places their country around the North Pole, saying it was “The Land of the Eternal Sun,” beyond Boreas, the god of winter. She asserts that this land was of a near tropical climate. In Universal Gnosticism, they are known to be the second root race of this terrestrial humanity.

"The second root race was governed by Quetzalcoatl; this was the Hyperborean humanity. The degenerated people of the second root race converted themselves into monkeys; these are the ancestors of present monkeys. They reproduced themselves by budding, such as the plants do: from their trunk sprout many branches. They were wiped out by strong hurricanes." - Samael Aun Weor, The Kabbalah of the Mayan Mysteries
