Because of the latitude of Tiwanaku and Teotihuacan is not symmetric about the equator, the point of intersection of the lines lies a little North of him. And so, while the whole system is symmetrical only relative to Meridian VP+115° W.
In addition, the image clearly shows that the line t-T and es-in the Northern hemisphere overlap with the 40th latitude in the meridians EAP+155°W and RP+75°W, i.e. between the intersections of 80°, or 2 times at 40°. And the line y-y, intersects the latitude of Easter Island on the Meridian perpendicular to the Meridian EP, i.e. on the Meridian EP+90°.
To make the system symmetric, in opposite hemispheres, will hold the latitude corresponding to the true latitude of Tiwanaku and Teotihuacan, i.e. anti-latitudes of these sites. Continue reading
