Pachuatl Manipochtli by jflaxman Pachuatl Manipochtli by jflaxman
Much is unaccounted for in the vastness of the universe, but some forbidden codices hint at the existence of a great primordial entity that tirelessly roams the void, fuelled by an insatiable hunger that drives it to devour all in its path. It consumes entire stars, reducing worlds to lifeless husks, and continues as implacably as the flow of time itself. Yet it is also darkly rumoured that a cosmic labyrinth denies this being absolute freedom, and four more entities pursue it within the same colossal maze. At times, the nameless writers claim, Pachuatl Manipochtli acquires enough energy to turn on its antagonists and devour them at will; but they are soon enough reborn and the normal order is restored.

I know this is Pacman - but your Nonsense-Nahua has some Semantic Meaning.

 

And there's no such thing as Forbidden Codices - The Aztec were pretty open about the Apocalypse and all their Murderous Gods.

Yeah, I know. I was thinking Mayan codices (the kind the Spanish didn't approve of!)

It was not the Spanish themselves - It was two priests.

One - De Landa, feared what he saw and condemned it to the inferno.

The Other - Sahagun, understood that what He beheld was the work of Millennia of Human Culture.

 

Nahuatl was preserved - and Maya was Lost.

But What's left amazes to those who can grasp it.

OhˇI see.Well,as Mexican,I felt curiosity about this.Being honest,I'm not by far,the most curious about the ancient myths of the older inhabitants from my country,but when I'd saw your picture,I'd say:I must know more about thisˇAnyway,I recognize it as a very good idea.Then,according to your text,the other entities might be the equivalent to Clyde and his gang?

I am someone who has had aliens speak DEMON song into my mind, though I am a born again Christian and a man of God so they made a huge mistake.

This let me into a form of alien telepathy which is called the "veil." I can "see" the veil and because of what has happened to me I killed satan, destroyed its VILE sin and am defeating sin every day with my soul, and more recently I have performed acts with my computer which bound deep DEMON lies into the computer using the computer game Doom. As you can see from one of my more recent deviations, satanists tried putting magic into Doom mods that God sent me to investigate which were made to bind the player's soul to sin and satan. I discovered these lies and it let me "back-hack" the veil using the game they tried to bind me with. [link]

I don't know if you are familliar with the magical term "gate," but the satanists opened a gate to sin and hell using a computer game and I used the power of God to turn it around and bind real DEMON with my computer. You can see an example of a You Tube video of it here on my account, [link]
The video is long because it is called a "veil shift" and is sort of like "slow acting magic" instead of casting a "spell" which would be quick. As I am working with demon this magic took a long time.

I tell you all this quickly because I want you to know that I have done scientific research on this, the veil and DEMON. I have done this in the name of God. I tell you this because I know how to prove my point as I have defeated all DEMON and I needed to prove the validity of what I have to say to you as quickly as possible so there can be no argument in your soul against what I have to say.

What I have to say is this, this piece of art is like real things I have seen. It is satan and has to do with time-warps, and now you know what "sin," is, is lies like this. Lies as depicted in "Dead Space 3," and if you never played it I suggest referencing a video on You Tube of the final boss battle, as that boss is not unlike what you depicted, though this is deeper.

From this painting and the description you type, I must tell you that you have seen the veil. The "veil" is often what we see in our heads, like our imagination, though half of it is called "VILE" and that is the satan part of it. The veil is like the "insides of wormholes" where those wormholes and the matter inside wouldn't exist in this "time-and-space" but must be accounted for in the universe.
Satan on the other hand made "sin" which is like the opposite of this-side-of-the-universe, what people regard of as "space." As you depicted they, the demon and satan, try to create "physical veil shits" as depicted like in this painting.

I am to tell you that you have seen the veil and have seen real sin. God wanted me to tell you and he also wants me to tell you that he is going to use you and your soul in meditation in your mind to combat these horrors as the information I have given you in this comment has empowered you as you no longer need to be afraid of the deep you have seen. I have destroyed much of the sin as I said I have killed satan. You are no longer going to be plagued. Now that you have been enlightened the rest of it is between you and God. Someone no longer needs to be a born again Christian to talk with God because of what I have done, so he wants you to just start praying which means "talking to him" in your mind.

The end.

I'm glad someone noticed! The Aztec/Mayan cultures had a thing for merciless deities and world-destroying cataclysms, so I thought it was appropriate.
