A provider and a sustainer have yet to appear — a child of light, a son of light. Humanity has yet to appear to populate the face of the earth,” they said.

They discovered and established that which would become the ﬂesh of humanity. . Thus their frame and shape were given expression by our ﬁrst Mother and our ﬁrst Father.
When she moves, we have an earthquake. After taking the woman and changing her to earth, Old One gathered some of her ﬂesh and rolled it into balls, as people do with mud or clay. He made the ﬁrst group of these balls into the ancients, the beings of the early world. . Besides the ancients, real people and real animals lived on the earth at that time.

In addition, no direct ancestor of maize has been found. Biologists believe that Mesoamerican farmers identified a mutant form of a related grass called teosinte and gradually adapted it through selection and hybridization. Eaten together with beans, maize provided Mesoamerican peoples with a diet sufficient in protein despite the scarcity of meat. Mesoamericans processed kernels through nixtamalization, boiling the maize in a solution of water and mineral lime. The process broke down compounds in the kernels, increasing their nutritional value, while enriching the resulting masa, or paste, with dietary minerals including calcium, potassium, and iron.
