Aztecs … Mexico Trip 2022 …

The Sun rises.
But it also sets.

Wikipedia says: “The Aztec Sun Stone is a late post-classic Mexica sculpture housed in the National Anthropology Museum in Mexico City,
and is perhaps the most famous work of Mexica sculpture.”
It measures 11.75 ft across …  and weighs (54,210 lb).
It is sometimes also sometimes called the Mayan Calendar, but since it was found under Mexico City – which was built on top the ancient
Aztec capital of Tenochtitlan it’s an Aztec artifact.
However Mayan and Aztec cosmology were almost identical .

But despite their great achievements in Art, Architecture, Astrology, etc.
the Aztecs were undoubtedly among the most barbaric civilizations that ever existed. At times it’s known they were practicing human sacrifice on a mass scale -ritual murder many thousands of people a year.

That finally caught up to them, and they were slaughtered by an equally barbaric culture: the Spanish Conquistadores.
That’s Karma.
Bad Karma.

But do you really think you could murder thousands and thousands of people for years and there would not be some eventual reckoning?

I think not.

Tip: (And if you’re going to utterly destroy an empire,
be sure you build your stuff on top of it.)
