About Tortuga 13:20

Tortuga 13:20 ~ The Planet Art Legacy

Tortuga 13:20 is an independent educational web portal, focused on the synchronic codes of the 13:20 Maya Tzolkin Matrix as a gateway towards higher-dimensional systems of Spiritual Consciousness.

Tortuga 13:20 is the most complete media dedicated to the Galactic Maya Cosmology, initiated by visionary authors Tony Shearer and José and Lloydine Argüelles (Valum Votan & Bolon Ik). Tortuga 13:20 also studies Maya Archaeology and Epigraphy, as well as the new paradigms of the dimensional shift of 2012-2013.

Also known as the Messengers of the New Time, José and Lloydine Argüelles unveiled the synchronic codes by which many of us live our days today: the Dreamspell Journey, the 13:20 Harmonic Module (Dreamspell Tzolkin Matrix), the 13:28 Synchronometer, the Calendar of 13 Moons, the Telektonon Prophecy and the Telektonon Matrix, amongst others. They also coined visionary concepts such as Time is Art: T(E)=Art, the Planet Art Network, the Day Out of Time, the Seventh Power, as well as visionary meditations such as the Prayer of the Seven Galactic Directions and the Rainbow Bridge Meditation.


Tortuga 13:20 is reenacting the original form of this wisdom, in order to preserve its Universal Cultural Heritage for humankind, the evolution of Spiritual Consciousness and the Planetary Peace. This original script is the planet art legacy of the prophetic ministry of Valum and Bolon Ik (1981-2003).

Tortuga 13:20 is reconstructing this wisdom under Fair Use, for research, memorial and educational purposes only, and not for profit.

The visionary work of José and Lloydine Argüelles is a knowledge for all humankind. They shared this wisdom as a Gift for the evolution of human consciousness, and not to be sold in the marketplace or to be corrupted by business networks, neither to be abused in the personal quest to attain a celebrity status.

This is because the fundamental principle of their Discovery of the Law of Time is Art is that 13:20 is the natural frequency of “Time is Art”, therefore it is the antipode of the 12:60 artificial frequency of “Time is Money.”

“Such truth cannot be bought or sold for profit. Such truth is to be shared as a common language for the people of the Earth.”―José and Lloydine Argüelles

The inspirational work of the Messengers of the New Time constitutes a universal heritage of humanity. For the same reason, their true story, statements and books shouldn’t be doctored, especially in regard to the truth and mystery about Lloydine Bolon Ik, the Archetypal Mother and Galactic Feminine co-creator of the New Time movement (1981-2003). Her name shouldn’t be erased from the books, neither her memory should be removed from history.

“The New Epoch must manifest due respect to the Mother of the World, to the feminine element.”―Helena Roerich (Co-creator of the Roerich Pact / Banner of Peace)

Uncensored information means that we don’t cut, remove or change their historical records or co-authored works.

Tortuga 13:20 Inspiration and Concept

Original artwork from the historical website of Tortuga.com – Planetary Peace through Culture

The website of Tortuga1320.com is inspired on Tortuga.com (active between 1999-2003, online until 2013). This was the original website created by José and Lloydine to host the Planet Art Network, the Dreamspell community and the Thirteen Moon Calendar Movement.

Tortuga is Spanish for “Turtle”. José and Lloydine spoke and taught in Spanish language as well. Turtle is a sacred animal totem which has 13 scales on its back, therefore it carries the wisdom and power of number 13. This number is particularly relevant within the 13:20 natural timing frequency of the Tzolkin (13 x 20 = 260) and the 13:28 code of the 13 Moon Calendar.

As explained by José and Lloydine Argüelles:


“All Indigenous Peoples of the Earth know and respect the wisdom and power of the turtle. Within turtle’s shell is the knowledge of time and the wisdom of the thirteen moons. Turtle’s wisdom is the power of cosmic knowledge.

“Thirteen scales make up the back of turtle’s shell. It takes thirteen moons for Earth to go around the sun just once. Among the Indigenous Peoples of North America, Earth is known as Turtle Island. To remember that Earth is Turtle Island is to remember the way of the Earth guided by the cosmic power of thirteen moons.”

  1. Jose and Lloydine Arguelles are the wayshowers and messengers, showing us the nature of time and the effect of linear time living 24:7 in the period of Industrial Revolution that ended in 1987, according the Mayan prophecies.
    With the Harmonic Convergence. It’s always easier to look back in time as we know it, linear time, to connect the dots and see a pattern.

    As I perceive it, we’re now amidst the falling apart of material greed and abuse of power, which always are in sync: money and power are ruling the world for many members of humanity, specially the very rich. They’re never at peace, my goodness, how happy I am for not being rich with money, not carrying that burden on my shoulder.

    Joining the message of Jose and Lloydine, are some of the teachers I’ve come to know: Drunvalo Melchizedek, Eckhart Tolle and Thich Nhat Hanh and those who aren’t in the public spotlight, living their truth.

    There’s no greater sense of liberation and expansion, than acknowledging and releasing resistance and surrender to who I am in life and love. There’s no beating around the bush when one chooses to live one’s truth.

    One needs to journey through one’s own darkness, if that’s a reality, in order to reach the light that is always there. One’s own light that is. Suffering on planet Earth is mostly self-proclaimed, in fear and lack of affinity within one’s heart for oneself. Pluck the courage to ask for support and receive it fully, without a doubt.

    “Ask.. and you shall be given” is a deep statement, spoken by Jeshua, it rings true in my ears and it’s an experience in my life, with great humor. For it’s my own Higher Self that accompanies me more and more and no external authority rules over that part of me.

    The time is now, with much support and assistance ready to offer, human or angelic, to celebrate the Flowering of Humanity’s Consciousness. In a more streetwise way “Grab yourself in the collar and lift yourself out of the muck”
    Safe journey!
