         the ocean currents play a most important role on global climates, and humanity.  the antarctic circumpolar current moves up to 150 tiimes thee water of all the rivers of earth.  it flows clockwise around antarctica, making the sea very rough thru cape horn.  there are strong westerly winds in the same lattitude. 
         capt blight may have instigated a mutiny by expending so many weeks trying to pass cape horn e to w, in the wrong direction, before giving up, and going around the cape of good hope. 
         sea passage was so difficult from east to west, that it mostly isolated andean cultures.  our lads estimate the current began about 34mya.  
       
      www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antarctic_​circumpolar_current
       
         judging from relics and inscriptions found in the andes, trade with the 'old world' stopped by circa 3100 bce.  thats quite a discrepancy in dating. 
         the humboldt current is generated by the circumpolar current i believe, so it began about the same time. 
         regions on the west coast of south america, have evidence of a former density of human population, when the climate was more jungle.  this also suggests that climate change from jungle to desert, was far more recent than 34mya.  some of the andean ranges, may have uplifted higher, circa 3100 bce.  one or the other cause, changed the climate, and caused cultures to collapse, or relocate. 
         these cold currents have an upwelling of nutrients, that support the marine creatures that gather, and the flocks of birds.  if the number of birds was fairly stable thru time, we might judge the amount of time by the thickness of guano on the islands.  this would only be relative, for the birds and habitats have been harmed by people, after the inca time. 
         blavatsky reported that advanced ruins lie under the guano on the islands off peru.  this points to the humboldt current starting during the time of high cultures of man.  i doubt that this was 34mya.  by inference this is an important fact.  the 3100 bce is more likely.  men would not build a city in guano dumps. 
         changing the route of the major currents has a big impact on the nations involved.  the humboldt current is unstable today, changing rotation every 7 years or so, the el nino.  its in between, assuming a more permanent change in circulation.  another reason to suspect, that not long ago, a cw circulation was prevalent, bringing warmth to the coast.  i bet it was less than 52,000 years ago, and maybe a lot less.  warm air holds more moisture, and promotes mankind.  the wooded hills gave rise to rivers, and big agriculture.  with reduced farm land, after the change, the guano helped productivity on higher ground, where the people gathered.  a poleshift may have caused the opening thru drake passage or cape horn. 
         the inca were wise rulers, who had at least 11500 years to improve the landscape of the andes.  after the change, and the loss of trade, they may have opened other routes to exhange their goods.  overland thru tucuman to the platte river, may have been the new trade route.  there are legends of foreigners arriving at cuzco by this route, making the inca aware of it.  the same is true for the northern trade route from quito via the upper amazon to the orinoco.  trinidad would have made a secure trading port.  also the island in the mouth of the amazon. 
         i have read no compelling evidence that the isthmus of panama predates 3100 bce.  no ruins or relics there, as are found further north in central america.  much of its soil has been stripped off by sea waves, leaving central plateaus, as if by tsunamis or a gradual uplift. 
         sea trade was among the earliest endeavors of cultured man.  knowledge of straits, winds, and currents, were of vital importance to sailors.  after a few beers in seaports, these tales were exchanged.  some of the trade routes were closed by nature, disruptions at home may have caused the knowledge to have been lost, of the new routes. 
         andean silver, gold, tin, and emeralds were desirable in every age.  the temple of heracles at tyre was decorated with emeralds, votive offerings of sailors.  anyone who saw the mass of emeralds must have wondered where it was acquired.  the greeks would have noticed, plus any other power viewing the temple, like the assyrians, akkadians, and later the sumerians.    the emeralds likely came from the andes.  it may have been plundered several times before alexander.  dumb way to keep a secret!
