    Hello everyone, here I bring to you an investigation I have made, I found the source in a YouTube video called Tula: el espejo de cielo, that was based on a book called Arqueologías del espejo: un acercamiento al espacio ritual en Mesoamérica

    Tula Home to Quetzalcóatl
    A recent investigation brings us closer to the mythic and religious content of the center of the Toltec culture, the archeological site of Tula is revealed as a mirror that shows the knowledge by observing ourselves reflected in the cosmos.
    The mythological founder of Tula was Quetzalcoatl, the feathered serpent, who possessed the secret of how the human being is transformed into a god, in 1940 the archaeologist Jorge Acosta explores the remains of Tula in the center of Mexico with the enormous expectation of finding the lost treasures of Quetzalcoatl, among the archaeologists there is a lot of frustration for not finding what the historical sources promised, but the treasures were there, waiting to be discovered.

    Tula, The mirror of the sky
    “And there it exists, the great mirror, the one with two faces, the one that dawns in the region of the dead, in the sky” Mexican chants.
    Just when the Spanish conquest was happening, Efrain Bernardino Sahagun, the Franciscan who would become the greatest specialist in indigenous culture and religion was sent to Tula, It was important to understand Tula because from here came the religious bases of the subjugated indigenous peoples, so great was the prestige of Tula that even the Aztec nobility wanted to make its lineage.
    The Toltec way of seeing the spiritual in relation to nature and the cosmos greatly complicated the tasks of evangelization, therefore this knowledge remained hidden in the work of Sahagun, his manuscripts transmit the words and images of his indigenous informants, that in spite of the censorship of Sahagun, they introduce us to the enigma of how to observe and understand the site of Tula, according to the natives who spoke with Sahagun, Quetzalcoatl at the end of his life became the planet Venus.
    The cycle of Venus seen from the Earth lasts 584 days and the natives divided it into 6 periods of concealment and appearance, in its main appearances it is called the morning star and the evening star, when crossing the site of Tula these same periods are recited using a mountain like Venus.
    “And you can see the Toltec mountain and the Toltec pyramids, the mounds, the emergence of the Toltec temples” informants of Sahagun.
    The mountain for Mesoamerican cultures is the precense of God on Earth, in Tula Mount Xicuco represents Venus, Xicuco in Nahuatl comes from “the navel”, the union of the interior with the exterior, Mount Xicuco simulates the movement of Venus, the pyramids act like the Sun and the Moon.
    The Xicuco is hidden by the buildings, in some areas it is seen and in others it is not, in Tula the buildings function as screens that frame the overlapping of Venus represented by the mountain, as it appears and as it is hidden, to achieve these effects the Toltecs created the levels, distances, sizes and angles of the buildings that combine to guide a mirror of the sky on Earth, as represented by the Borgia codec, one of the few indigenous documents that survived the burning of the Spanish conquerors, it can be used to see Tula as a map of Venus and a useful instrument that keeps and produces knowledge.
    If in Tula is the mirror that embraces the creation, there is also the black mirror, the detail of stories and the essence of ourselves.

    Period I: Kingdom of Fire
    The Sun is preparing to resurface in the kingdom of fire, in this period Venus from the Earth is hidden, from the plaza Mount Xicuco is not seen either, the cycle begins in the center of Tula, in the Borgia codec this is the place of the fire under Earth, to reach the fire it is necessary to cross the terrestrial layer that separates us from the nucleus in the sense of the center.
    Quetzalcoatl arrives here passing through the womb of mother Earth, the goddess is mother Earth, already inside the fire Quetzalcoatl arrives at a mat of crisscrossed snakes, as they still survive in Chichenitza, a place that in many aspects is a decal of Tula, in the images compiled by Sahagun there are tied snakes that serve as magical firecrackers that with their movement in all directions weave the space time, a priest sitting on a mat of snakes knows his death, on the mat there is no time or space, only the circle of his essence remains, as he passes through the snake filter his vision of the Cosmos is transformed.
    Quetzalcoatl managed to light the fire of the old Sun, he finds him lying on his back like a Chacmol, here a Chacmol was discovered, he ignites the fire rubbing a cane on the chest of the old Sun, the new light comes out made out of 4 colors, the sun is reborn, without the need for a human sacrifice, a sacrifice that the Aztecs made when they settled in Tula betraying the principles of Quetzalcoatl.
    In the Toltec Tula Quetzalcoatl’s labor with fire was sufficient to establish a synchronicity with the movement of the Sun, his pyramid is the path of the Sun, Quetzalcoatl ascends like the Sun, he has become the Sun, those who were dedicated to observe the course and the proceeding of the reign of the sky became the Sun, they became a god, Quetzalcoatl walks following the path of the Sun.

    Period II: Evening Star
    Mount Xicuco moves to the west as Venus, which reappears at this time in the evening, the lord of the night hands the mountain to Quetzalcoatl, he travels with the eagle that represents the Sun of the dusk, he carries the mountain on his back, to guide him Tezcatlipoca shows him the mirror where he sees the divinity.
    When Quetzalcoatl was back in Tula he was caught in a trap left by Tezcatlipoca, the god who wanted to usurp his power, it was a black mirror in which Quetzalcoatl saw the mask of his false sainthood, but inside it was his dark side, he kept getting so drunk that even fornicated with his own sister, he abandoned Tula to redeem and re-encounter himself, many people followed him, they understood the mirrors very well, they always carried one on their back and when they left the road in order, in a row, they were looking at the mirror that the one that was in front of them carried on their back.
    When Quetzalcoatl looks at the mountain he sees himself, he saw that he was monstrous, mistreated, a monstrous fallen rock, without any creation in it, Quetzalcoatl receives the evening star and carries it, following the path of the Sun, in the same way Mount Xicuco moves in Tula, the mountain becomes part of his thorax, the thorax in the human body represents the mountain, “What is that of my body?”, then they showed it to him and they said “look at your body lord, look and know thyself” Informants of Sahagun.
    At the end of his transformations everything that Quetzalcoatl saw in his body is already part of himself, the Sun, the mountain, the enemy, the movement. Quetzalcoatl complete, alive and dead, disarms the flesh of his bones looking for a deeper area, only the dead pass or those who have known how to unfold themselves.
    Quetzalcoatl confronts the lord of the night in the ballgame, confusing the light and darkness they open a passage, here you can not see Mount Xicuco, precisely in the ballgame where Mount Xicuco disappears is marked the entrance to an underground passage, behind the ball game the Sun is hidden, the Sun enters the mountain, its last rays are as butterfly wings.
    For the indigenous people the mountain and the Sun together represent god, Fran Bernardino Sahagun uses this knowledge for the evangelization that finish with the Mesoamerican regions, in the booklets for the teaching of Catholicism we can see that his figures are made for people who see with naturality the complex movements of the soul, Sahagun uses the information of its indigenous informants and of the sacred sites to create the catechism, they say for these strips of images “the Sun enters, the god enters”.
    In the Borgia codec the mountain reappears inverted and resembles a flower, it is the moment when the Sun enters the mountain, the Sun god is inside the person, the transformation into divinity occurs in several levels that overlap in the landscape, the stars, the myth, the body and nature, it is necessary to describe in parts what is a single event, the Sun enters, the god enters, “Open your heart like the flowers, and may it live in your heart” Mexican chants.
    Quetzalcoatl has found the opening of his heart to the sky, he did it confronting the black mirror that Tezcatlipoca showed him, he had to recognize the interior of his person, his humblest form, to enter into the god’s presence, to break with the exterior images of himself, to no longer recognize himself only as an adorned being, in his passions, or on the mountain, instead to be a part of the whole is the opening that Quetzalcoatl needed to enter the flower.
    The flower mountain in the human body represent the lungs and the heart, Quetzalcoatl travels the stem of the flower accompanied by butterflies, in the human body the first butterfly is in the pelvis, Quetzalcoatl travels by the stem of his column, the butterfly vertebrae are the fire that ascends towards the inner sky, the skull is the celestial vault, the cosmos and the body come together in a single form, the serpent is the pipeline through which the Sun passes to the other side of the Earth, it is the column, it is the stem of the flower, it is the passage to reach the divinity, this serpent that goes from heaven to water is the feathered serpent.
    Quetzalcoatl has traveled the stem of the flower accompanied by butterflies, Tula was built to transmit the experience of each of these elements, to cause an internal contemplation becomes an instrument of transformation, it is something that happened outside and inside, in the cosmos and in the microcosmos.

    Period III: Kingdom of Water
    During this period Venus is submerged in the sea, Mount Xicuco is divisible from the spring of Tula, the traveler will pass to the other side of the river, who followed this ritual crossed by the tunnel of a snake that started in the ball game, it is a journey through the interior of oneself, only those who could fully show themselves came to the realm of water, now the god will wash him, “what is happening to you? what are your principles? What are your roots?”.
    The lord will wash for you what his heart decides, in the Tlalocan is the washer of people, the cleaner of people, who passes by here delights the god, makes the god laugh, one more time he becomes a child, the reflection of the sun in the water forms a tree of mirrors, Quetzalcoatl will follow the water like his twin Xolotl, the dog that is born in the roots of the tree, he will travel inside the mirror, space of the reflections, inside of the sea, later Xolotl will reappear in a shell that comes out of the ocean. Quetzalcoatl delivers a cup to Tlaloc the god of water, to create the rain, from here the lightning comes, the clouds are born, who touched this becomes like a green and precious stone or the feathers of a young parakeet and must behave with humility, sad and modestly calling the god.
    The Aztecs reconstructed in the valley of Mexico several of the central elements of the Toltec cosmogony, the Aztec petroglyphs found in the mountain of water in Tula were duplicated by them in the Tepeyac, they show that the Aztecs saw in the hill of the Tepeyac what they had seen in the spring Tula, in them are seen Quetzalcoatl and the goddess of water.

    Period IV: Descend to the Underworld
    Venus Quetzalcoatl goes through a period of invisibility and reappears to descend from heaven to the underworld, the presence or absence of mount Xicuco locates the soul in the distant places that they represent, each position of Venus in the cosmos also keeps a longing, a process, a force, a position of the soul, to go to that place in our mind we recover a part of us, here Quetzalcoatl gives shape to his god, the sky opens, the Earth opens, it comes down inside the flower that forms the stars to enter the monster Earth and his ballgame.
    Quetzalcoatl emaciated as a spirit low inside the Earth, there are other primitive and powerful forces that keep some of the most delicacy will unite his flesh and bones, Xolotl will return the flesh after his crossing by the water, he goes to the navel of the Xipactli, an ancient alligator reclining on the primordial waters that sustains the Earth firm, when there were only endless seas the Xipactli settled on the waters so that on his back our world could be built, by the mouth to the navel of the alligator, Quetzalcoatl descends to the underworld.

    Periods V & VI: Morning Star and The Interior of Earth
    The mountain is Venus, the star of the mountain visible at dawn, every day Venus moves more towards the east, closer to the sun that dawns, Quetzalcoatl will eventually be burned by the Sun, after his pilgrimage to the East that completes his knowledge, burning in a bonfire, birds of many colors are born, the morning star emerges from his heart, the eagle that represents the Sun eats Venus, Venus and the Sun merge into one.
    The mountain of the wind is a hollow mountain, this mountain in the human body represents the inverted pelvis, Quetzalcoatl as the morning star releases its air that blooms and propels the Sun so that it is not fixed burning the Earth, the Venus cycle returns to its origin, Quetzalcoatl returns to the womb of the goddess Earth, but before crossing to the top of her body he goes through her strata in a denser place, goes down to recover the bones of his ancestors, the bones are the seed, the origin of the human body sown by the cosmos, “you have arrived at Earth, you were sent here by your mother and father, you were casted, you were wrought in your house where the duality exists”.
    In the room an offering was found, which recounts the rescue of the bones that Quetzalcoatl made, the codice resumes various elements of the offering, the corn represents red shells, the red bone, the mirror disk of the Sun, the Sun needs to go through death to achieve the things of life, it is the Sun under the Earth giving its strength so that the seeds can sprout.
    In these inner enclosures of invisibility Venus and the Xicuco remain as ashes, it is only the wind and swirls of ashes in the wind, the goddess of desire lets through her body and her heart the suns that have been burned in the solar fire, it is the way back to a human body, again Quetzalcoatl will be confronted with the forces of this place, where the desire governs, he will go back and see through the black mirror to achieve purification, is a god who becomes a man and a man who becomes god, cycle after cycle, to remain in the fabric of life and form hearts that move everywhere.
    You do not need to die to go to heaven, you need to be intimately linked to the Earth to remain in the presence of God, this knowledge so different from those of Europe gave the Franciscans the hope of preparing the world that was looking for the return of Jesus Christ, his project to create a new society, based on the sacred nature that San Francisco preached was a failure before other currents of Catholicism.
    Tula comes from Teotihuacan, where the Sun and the Moon were born, taking the world out of the darkness, according to the ancients the light emitted by these stars are not only physical but spiritual, it is a model that incorporates the cycles of space and time in our thought.
    The Toltecs pick up the Teotihuacan model not only as architecture and play of volumes but as a mythical center of an origin that is renewed so that people can rediscover the strands of their souls, who manage to unravel the secret of everything, they turn into mirror people, these are pierced men, they knew how to become the Sun, the Moon, Venus.
    The Aztecs, when they settled in Tula, discovered the arts and crafts, they stopped being a nomadic tribe, near Tula in Coatepec their Sun god Huitzilopochtli was born who breaks the harmony of the heavens establishing a conflict with the Moon and the stars, whom also decides to establish human sacrifices to the Sun, destroying Tula.
    They return to migrate to the valley of Mexico, the city that is built there keeps many of the elements of Tula, but now oriented to a cosmos that is no longer harmonious and that requires many sacrifices to continue functioning, when the Aztecs learn of the arrival of Cortez they think that it is the return of Quetzalcoatl, this paralyzes their enormous war capacity because they feel panic for having deformed the principles of the old religion.
    In the first encounter with the conquerors there is an exchange of gifts, Moctezuma sends Quetzalcoatl’s jewels to Cortez, in exchange Cortez gives him some rancid biscuits, for Moctezuma these biscuits mark the god’s humbleness and he orders to bury them in Tula the home of Quetzalcoatl.
    The catholicism had to pick up some moments of the Toltec vision, one of them is the descent of the flowers of the sky, that occurs inside the Xipactli in Tula, the informants of Sahagun paint these images of transition, their elements also are reflected in the virgin of Guadalupe that emerged in the Franciscan environment, the friars knew that it was not a matter of replacing one figure with another, but as in the catechism, of undertaking an effective path towards the divine with the natives.
    We can understand a parallel codice to the Borgia with the Guadalupe, the natives read the virgin of Guadalupe from the complex symbolism of their own religion, the Virgin of Guadalupe brings the freshness from God to Earth, the transformation of the Toltec way into an image acceptable to the conquerors was the victory of the indigenous wise men who in the first song that speaks about the Virgin of Guadalupe mention the fall of Tula and how in Santa Maria they painted the Toltecs, this historical arrival that makes a legal part of the ancient spirituality was nothing more than a fragment of the tasks of Quetzalcoatl.
    Tula’s mirror is passed through different elements, by densities, inside the body, by the worlds of the gods, by dimensions where there is no space, the mountain marks with its pattern the periods of Venus, in them the knowledge to build life to the rhythm of nature, in this way, in its game of mirrors is also the encounter with our own divinity, a mountain praised by buildings, a conplex sculpture, a mirror of the sky.
