Jim Turner answering questions– about Apocalypse Island

The Question—

Hello Jim and MWiz, I recently watched the televised program on Isla de Robinson Crusoe or “Apocalypse Island”. Is the location of this possible monument the only place these cosmic events of 2012 will be visible anywhere on earth? Also, why would the Mayans go to such lengths to carve such an important landmark using unfamiliar materials and risk the destruction of such an important monument? By looking at the pictures on your website I fail to see any resemblance to a jaguar or Mayan sun god. I am looking forward to your reply

The Answers—-

Hi xxxx

You can go to my website (www.apocalypseisland.com) and visit the photo gallery for additional photos of the monument. The movie did not do it justice and it is understandable that you would be disappointed. In the Photo Gallery is an overlay showing the Mayan Sun God image over the monument. The Maya used the material on hand because, at double the size of the Egyptian Sphinx, it was an arduous task to carve. They stripped away the exterior of the volcanic ridge, likely exposing harder material underneath. As rock made from cooled lava it was strong enough to survive this long. I am leaving on Saturday for another expedition to the island monument, this time to film the Solar Eclipse of July 11. I intend to spend much time photographing the monument from all angles. You can pre-order a copy of the expedition DVD from my website. Thanks for your interest. Cheers, Jim

Hixxxx,

Don’t you hate when you email someone with questions and they just don’t answer them? Sorry but I forgot to talk about the visibility of the 2012 cosmic events. The Transit of Venus will be visible over a large swath of the earth and will be observed for only moments before sunset as seen from the island monument. However, horizon viewing was apparently preferred by the ancients, perhaps because the sun is passing through a thicker cross-section of atmosphere and therefore easier to look at with the unprotected eye. The November 13, 2012 total solar eclipse is visible in the Western Hemisphere only from the Juan Fernandez Archipelago, the islands of Alexander Selkirk and Robinson Crusoe. In truth, the 2012 eclipse is only 90% eclipsed as seen from the island monument since the eclipse path passes to the north of the island. Some may find this cause to dismiss the entire thing because the eclipse is not total but when you consider the sophistication of the science involved in the prediction and the inability of the Maya to reformat the cosmos for their celestial mythology you have to cut them some slack. Another interpretation might suggest that, since the eclipse path ends precisely on the 80th line of longitude, that we are simply misunderstanding the intention of the Maya and that the true import of this mystery transcends a single celestial event (ie. the 2012 eclipse). As defined by NASA’s calculations the central line of the 2012 eclipse ends at 79 degrees 58.2 minutes West of Greenwich, a mere 1.8 SECONDS of longitude away from the 80th meridian. For the importance of this meridian I would direct you to Volume 3 of The Ahau Chronicles where I detail the sacred cartography involved with this line. As a discrete marking of time I feel the Maya have come as close as heavenly possible to accurately measuring the orbit of our planet around the sun. See the attached animation for another perspective. Hopefully that answers your questions. Now I have to go and pack for the expedition. Cheers, Jim

  1. Jim, I also watched the History channel and have some thoughts; Did you look for Myan artifacts in the Galapagos Islands. Here you may find the resting place of Chan Bahlum.

    Have you searched here?
    What is the view point from this island group?

  2. I am well aware you have 90% critics. Don’t worry. At least you got your guts to investigate. Millions of tourists and Peruvians simply HAVE NOT SEEN Machu Picchu is a game of shadow and light with Huayna Picchu with a carved face of a cougar with opened eyes and ears in attack position and right beside him the condor (young bird is Huayna Picchu in Quechua) with spread wings. Clearly there’s a huge body of an alligator and the whole profile of a man if seen in vertical way from specific point of view. Shadow is untouchable and represents the 4th dimension. In Pitusiray mountian only once a year in solstice the shadow of a cougar about to jump unites with the face of an Inca wearing a head piece. “Mayanologists” seem to ignore the presence of Brazilian mica in Teotihuacan pyramids. There are several carvings of elephants with trunks which are “interpreted” as being parrots, butterflies, rattlesnakes and even bats simply because it’s uncomfortable for them to admit they got in contact with other civilizations as far as Hindu. In Jalapa museum the authorities even hid elephant toys!

    Nobody wants to acknowledge the simple fact the basis of Mayan Teotihuacan Sun pyramid is almost exactly the measurement of the basis of Great Pyramid and in many cases the angle used was 43.5 degrees rather than easier 45 degrees.

    It’s obvious that Mayans used the same technique used by Peruvian Masma people in Marcahuasi, a place 4000 meters upon sea level. People talk and talk and never go to these places. In Egypt I found out all the photographs about the sphinx were wrong because the perspective makes it look bigger than it is and is the Great Pyramid BEHIND which is larger than life and a bit far from the sphinx.
    Best regards even if you’re wrong (which probably you are not).

    I guess in Chile nobody cares rongo-rongo scripture found in Rapa Nui island is almost exactly the one found in Indu Valley. That knowledge has to be forbidden (like Incas with red beards or dolichocephal skulls belonging to white race) because of nationalism or patriotism.

    I think in the National Geographic documentary you should’ve compared the huge face and the jaguar monument overlapping with the drawing & paintings of the Dresden Codex to enhance your view. I saw the jaguar and that is not a simple “coincidence” but carving on the stones to let the shadows do the rest a biut like Rodin statue. Left unfunished. It was ancient art people ignore. People usually are not aware even Picasso Cubism art was influenced by Peruvian Chavin art.

  3. Did anybody other than myself notice another “face” on the cliff to the left of the monument? At the end of the History channel program Apocalypse Island runs a series of three photos. In the first photo it shows a view as if you were on the monuments right facing side. Above the front of the monument up to the left is another image in the cliff. To me, and now my son, we see it clearly. It’s a bust of a head facing the same directions. Is this just another “image in a cloud?”

  4. jim read unveiled mysteries you will see that the king that you say or your findings are off. The true king that the one on your show( or research an findings) said he spoke with is the one who had these thing done or his son who ruled to the north. These are important facts that are over look by the three dimensoinal thinkers. remember the three rules of change. One will only pass this time. If you really want know what really will happen. I can help clarify and it would be to have someone who is schooled in the three dimemsional thinking that has move on farther. I CAN EXPLAIN IN SIMPLE TERMS THAT WITH YOUR HELP CAN BE PROVED BEFORE IT COMES TO PASS. A FRIEND

  5. SALUDOS CORDIALES, ESPERO QUE ESTE MENSAJE POR MAS INFORMAL QUE SEA PUEDA LLEGAR A SER VISTO POR MAS QUE ESTA WEB NO TENGA USO EN ANOS. HE PRESENCIADO A JUPITER Y VENUS POR DIAS EN ECUADOR-GUAYAQUIL LO PUEDO VER EN HORAS DE LA NOCHE 7-8 ENTRE ESAS HORAS,NO PARO DE VERLO Y ME LLAMA MUCHO LA ATENCION QUE SE LO PUEDA VER CON TANTA CLARIDAD Y TAN AMENUDO, HE VISTO # EN INSTAGRAM TODOS LOS DIAS DE PERSONAS QUE LOS VEN DIARIAMENTE. MI PREGUNTA ES YA QUE NO SUCEDIO NADA EN EL ULTIMO DIA DEL CALENDARIO MAYA Y VENUS TIENE PARTE EN LA HISTORIA , ESTOS AVISTAMIENTOS COTIDIANOS CON JUPITER Y VENUS SON PIEZAS DE LA HISTORIA? NO HE VISTO A LA PRENSA INTERNACIONAL PRONUNCIARSE, QUE TIENE QUE VER CON EL SEGUNDO SOL QUE SE VE EL CHILE, QUE LOGICO NO ES UN SOL. QUE NOS ENCONDEN.
