According to the Doctrine of Races, the first race was that of the self-born - ethereal, angel-like beings who were up to 164 ft (50 m) tall.
The second race was the so-called Hyperboreans. They were ghost-like, with bodies more tangible than their ancestors and shorter in height - up to about 131 ft (40 m) tall.
The third race was the Lemurians. They had 2 faces and 4 arms, and were about 65 ft (20 m) tall. The Lemurians were thought to inhabit the mythical continent of Lemuria, located on the territory of modern-day India.
The fourth race was the Atlanteans - about 13 ft (4 m) tall, becoming ever shorter toward the end of their existence. They were able to transmit thoughts at a distance and affect gravity.
The Atlanteans were believed to have flying machines, they were thought to have raised the stone figures on Easter Island, to have built the Egyptian pyramids and other wonders of the Ancient World.
Supposedly the Atlanteans inhabited the continent of Atlantis which sank after an earthquake. The legendary philosopher Plato hinted at the existence of this mystical continent.
The fifth race, to which we belong, is called the Aryan race by esoterics. It's thought to have arisen in the era of the late Atlanteans.
In the beginning, the Aryans were up to 9.8 ft (3 m) tall, then became shorter. With time, this race "went wild" and was unable to master and develop the knowledge and skills of the Atlanteans.
The physical exterior of the 5th race led to the characteristics of modern man.
Scientists are working on theories, according to which, our race will evolve into a new, better, 6th race. Conditionally, this hypothetical race is called "yellow".
According to Russian physicist Leonid Maslov, the change into the 6th race will happen through the so-called "quantum transition". This transition will alter the Earth's exterior but it is people's consciousness that will see the greatest change.
According to Maslov, after this quantum leap, all limits will be shattered. Humans will be able to freely move through space and time, traveling thousands of miles in mere seconds.
Communicating through telepathy will become something completely normal. The people of the 6th race will face the mission of conquering new planets and galaxies. Humanity will have the privilege of living forever.
