Conflicting Essays in scholarship which have been the most engaging research job I have ever done. I have also added, over the years, queries about our "dated" geology with their "computerized" confirmations together with climate changes denied since 1963. The Ten-O'clock News have been telling us to change our clocks for DSL and back again BUT no one as noticed it has been changed, more than a few years ago, from March 31 and October 31, to a week or so earlier or even a week or so later.

How the Moon Split, within 20 Days

Note: "Muhammad splits the moon,"
was an illustration in a Falnameh,
a Persian book of prophesies.

Maya Glyph for 20 day month
In the RĂ­os Codex, there are four pictures of the different ages of the Sun. All show stones falling from the sky. The last version shows a flower mountain with fruit on it. Without a doubt, we can also call this Persian mountain "Flower/Fruit." 

Here  is a Persian manuscript illumination which refers to a split moon, a white, [lighter colored] mountain (in the background) and a mountain covered with flowers and fruit. A strange root radish-type “fruit” at the end of a beard pointing upward. A weird gash in the earth; a man who is half hidden in it. It is reminiscent of a tearing of the earth by a fallen meteorite. It is a prophetic statement as all true instances of this event has been recorded. It had to be a prophecy; if not, it would have been destroyed. Governments are like that.

It appears that the Persians are making their own visual statement about the Flower/Fruit Mountain. A meteorite (stone egg) had fallen into the sea; not from the moon. It separated the Flower mountain from the White Mountain. 

A geological "sheer thrust," in the land passed through the Puerto Rican Trench in the Atlantic Ocean through Mexico's Popocatepetl and Ixtacuihuatl as far as the San Andreas Fault in Baja California. [Raicz, Erwin (1968) Landforms of Mexico]. 

 An Aztec/Mixtec Moon Glyph with a cord around the head meaning 20, thought to be a “tied” [completed] month of 20 days. The event was seen! But, by whom? Was it the Aztecs who saw it and recorded it for their university astronomy lessons or were they in Nasca, Peru, learning to triangulate the stars? 

Where was the Sun Wu Kong (the Monkey King) of China at the time? His name means "dog-of-the-old-moon." The Aztec Xolotl was the dog version of Quetzalcoatl who fell from the heavens and saved the sun from death. 

 Olivia Vlahos in her book, Far-Eastern Beginnings claimed that documents of the T'ang Dynasty (618-907) described the blue-eyed, blond Wu-sun, the Ting-ling and the Yueh-chih tribes [yueh = moon] which probably included people with Western faces. The Ting-Ling and the Wu-sun inhabited lands around Lake Baikal and the Altai Mountains. She stated that the Yueh-Chih lived farther to the west. (p. 86) She also stated that the T¹ang described the Kirghiz as tall, red of face and of hair, green of eye.(p. 128) 

The presence of the tall Jaina hats and Caucasian features of the tombs of Xinjiang, in the burial sites on the edge of western Gobi desert and in the island of Jaina, off the coast of Mexico, may connect the two lands historically. Near the city of Belize located in the Yucatan peninsula, there is a point of land called the Moho Cay. Then a connection might be made with the recorded event in the Moho Tarot-type manuscript; a short version of the Monkey King's journey westward. 

Is there another connection with the Jaina tall hats? The Monkey King did expel turds in the sky and the Aztecs  the excrement of the gods as gold and silver. H.m.m.m.m. 

As an aside, the Persians invented Chess; the Indid believe was gca emperor was an expert at that game, according to Pizzaro’s account. The travelers through India played a board game called Parchessi. Similar to a game played by the Aztecs with time on their hands. 

 As it is, there is a lot of evidence for transoceanic travel, both east and west, but we seem to be searching for things that cannot exist, such as, clothing, food, fine slipware, pottery, and statues, however small. 

Except for the last two items, all will be eaten, deteriorate, be broken in a short span of time. The sea breezes create hunger and food in small boats which are not capable of sustaining more than a few people over a long journey. The salt spray will destroy in a very short time, even clothing packed carefully away in closed boxes. 

Men who traveled by these small boats would marry a native whereever area he stepped ashore. She would have none of the past. She would only chose to remember the present. The most viable element that was carried north, south, east and west from and throughout the Americas was knowledge and adept hands which could illustrate a concept. 

Original art work would have been drawn on the sea shore in the sands, on the mountains in the soil or on some form of cloth, paper or bark. All these original items would be lost over the centuries, in a very short span of time. Copyists in the area would insert their own version of the pictures. They would almost be the same, but not quite: a scroll here, a tassel there, a slanted eye or a strange hat. 

The script would change over the years from that of the original artist, to that of the copyists. [See the tomb of Palenque and the Lady of China] When similar art forms are discovered, it is not easy to think of diffusion. After all, we would never take a small boat across the oceans, but, even today, there are people who do. Single navigators with a dream, or even families with a sturdy, albiet small boat. Modern boats are better equipped than the open boats used centuries ago. 

A journey can be made, but because of language differences, are quickly forgotten. Those who traveled in ancient times, knew of these differences and used both physical entertainment (i.e.: acrobatics, dance, mime, puppetry) and the paint brush as their vehicles for understanding. For their personal safety, they used "magic" which was no more than a primitive form of the very technology we use today.

Did the moon split off from the earth. Most assuredly it did----except that it was the volcanoes in front of Lake Texcoco, rose to mountain heights when the "sheer thrust" occurred across the land and split the volcanoes from the Balsas Valley below. The lake behind the volcanic mountains rose almost to the heights of the mountains and reflected the closeness of the moon so brightly, stars, reflected in the water previously, could no longer be seen.

Is the Persian manuscript, attempting to tell us that the split across the land happened within a month of 20 days; or was it just telling us that the Moon in the sky was showing us the reflection of the earth beneath it?  It is your, the reader's choice, to make. There is no "proof" other than what is presented here. And, it is obviously, very eclectic in nature.

If one reads the Codices, and reas Ferdowsi, one might find a story that is repeated in one of the Codex.Baranda. found in the Occidente de Oaxaca. Only a Persian could have told the story so completely.
