In the olden days, one could defeat an enemy, and wear it`s skin,
one could go around the village, and ask for food,water, or something else of value,
One might assume the form of a god, and seed offspring as a god.
When you have done everything, there is to be done with it`s skin, you shed it like a serpent,
or be like the centipede, that has been eaten whole by the overconfident serpent, and eat you way out from its belly, and thus one is reborn on this
Once reborn, the skins of your enemies are placed in sacred jars, and the jars are placed in sacred houses.
Your basic wiki about xipe totec has loads of information, and when digging around, pay attention in any information given about the worshippers of
said deity, also a quick image search will show these figures wearing the skin suits, with the hands dangling about from the wrists..
And about the links, its all stored in the warped mind of solve, from many years of research, these things are closely related in the transformation
rituals of the jaguar priests, and Coyolxauhqui. it all paints a bigger picture,
I am glad that you find this interesting. and i am sad, that so much information has been destroyed or lost.
I have been trying to find information about the centipedes, but man, that is difficult, only a few references here and there, a picture of a
centipede being pulled from the chest of a man, (ancient papyri).
And of course the insanity of william s burroughs, soft machine, so many strings to pull from..
One more thing that is weird, if the skin was from a powerful enemy, it could be placed over a statue, because statue animation was once a big thing,
then if the statue had phonetic values made in the form, it could "speak".
Of course one needs to be heavily intoxicated by the ones who leap forth, if one wishes to hear what it is saying.
