Last Show Recap

Fifty miles off the coast of Nantucket, 250 feet beneath the Atlantic, lies the RMS Republic and her secret treasure. As soon as Republic sank, rumors spread of a precious cargo, but the ship has kept her secrets intact for over a century, until now. Life-long treasure hunter Martin Bayerle joined Connie Willis (email) for all four hours to discuss how he has devoted the past 35 years of his life researching the shipwreck and proving the existence of her reputed cargo of 150,000 American Eagle gold coins, a bounty worth a billion dollars in today’s economy, and his quest to recover the it on his second attempt at the Republic.

Spotlight on: Mayan Prophecy

 Spotlight on: Mayan Prophecy

Among the books tonight's guest Maurice Cotterell has written is a fascinating treatise called The Mayan Prophecies(1) (co-authored with Adrian Gilbert). When Cotterell was working as an electrical engineer at the Cranfield Institute of Technology, he developed a computation that correlated the relationship between the sun's magnetic field and the Earth. His calculations yielded the known 11.5-year sunspot cycle but he also discovered evidence of much longer cycles-- including one of 1,366,040 days. When Cotterell found that the Mayan Holy Number (1,366,560 days) nearly matched his number, he realized there could be a connection. He traveled to a Mayan ceremonial center in Palenque, Mexico to study their inscriptions. "Imagine my astonishment when I realized that my discoveries about the sun, and how its cycles affect life on earth, had all been discovered before; by the Maya more than 1,250 years ago," he wrote.

According to Cotterell, the Mayan Holy Number refers to the "birthdate of Venus," and is related to a time when that planet toppled on its axis around 3113 BC and "her brilliant light blazed across the cosmos." He writes that the Mayan calendar prophecies a similar fate for our planet and that we are nearing the end of a fifth age or "final sun." Their calendar ends on December 22, 2012, and Cotterell believes this could spell cataclysmic consequences for us.
