[advent of "DAGWANOEnYENT Big Head (Whirlwind)"]



"the man started toward the North, as his dream had told him to do. He had not gone far when he came to a fallen tree, the roots turned out of the ground.

{is Meteor a manifestation of fire-whirl?}


When half way around the tree, he saw Meteor with his great mouth open. ... The man took a double tooth, the one farthest back in Meteor's jaw.

Then Meteor said, "You will live always and you will have great power, but you and I must always counsel with each other. Now we will part."

Meteor flew off through the air and the man ... turned into a hawk and flew toward the southwest. ...

{some Maya gods are depicted with a curved fang jutting out of the rear of their mouths}


[The hawk carried off a woman whom he had transformed in gnat-guise.]

{cf. the carrying off by a male bird of goddess Idunn whom he had transformed.}


He looked into the earth and saw, deep down, a tree and on the tree was a monster Lizard. ... The Lizard was the largest of the ancient blue Lizards (DZAINOS GOWA). It came out of the ground in the heart of the tree that the man was sitting on. ...



It was a very dark night; he ran against a great maple tree. As he hit the tree he went straight through. This happened many times in the night. Whenever the man hit a tree he went through it. ... The Lizard was just upon him and was reaching out to seize him when the man fell, as it seemed to him, into a hole in the ground. ...



He kept falling and as he fell he got sleepy. Looking up he saw the Lizard coming down on the side of the hole, winding around and around. The man fell asleep. After a time he woke up and was still falling and the Lizard was still pursuing him.

At last the man landed on his feet. He seemed to have come out of the hole. He looked around and saw a beautiful country."
