I read a lot in the internet regarding Atlantis, Lemuria, Kumari Kandam, Sunda Land and Nusantara. There are so many views on this subject. However, there is no mention about the population of that land. They failed to mention the origin of the Malays was here, in the land more than 800,000 years ago. In this site, I am writing on 'The Root of All Knowledge,' known as "Malaiyana Mulayanam" (Ajaran Melayu/Malai Mula Ajaran) consisted of 173 books, created by Mahasiddha Svayana more than 790,000 year ago in Alam Melayu.
It is important to note that Alam Melayu was a vast continent (formerly known as Buwana Svarnabumi Tanah Sunda), populated by Malay people. Later, from one race, the Malays separated to become sub-race, such as Javanese, Sundanese, Acehnese, Bugis, Makasar, Batak, Iban, Filipino, Kadazan, etc. Later, the Malays were separated again when Hinduism and Buddhism came into this region where they embraced those religions. Later, the Malays were divided again when Islamic religion came into this region where most of the people embraced this religion. Latest, the Malays were divided again when the West colonialists and Christianity came into this region where many Malays (particularly in the Philippines) embraced that religion. The Western colonialists (British, Dutch, Portuguese, Spanish and Americans) came into this region and the Malays were divided into countries, such as Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Kampuchea, Hong Kong and Taiwan.
I am sure that the Malays with a total population of more than 300 million people could become global super-power if they become ONE RACE AGAIN as in the past, and to put aside their religious beliefs, countries and sub-races. Remember that the world's highest mountain is named Himalaya ('Hi' means 'Mountain' and 'Malaya' means 'Malays) to replace the exploded mountain long time ago, Gunung Batara Guru in Sumatera (present-day Lake Toba and Samosir Island). The Malays are the most tolerant people in the world because they can accept all human beings from different places to visit and stay here. They never discriminate others. They never dominate others but other people like to dominate the Malays.
