I have been fascinated with Cortez and Montezuma for a couple years now. I haven't ever really looked too deeply into what Montezuma was doing in
Mexico until very recently, but the discovery that he was supposedly communicating with a demonic humming bird while using copious amounts of
psychedelic mushrooms originally really piqued my interest in the topic. The human sacrifice on an industrial scale was disturbing but fascinating to
me when taken into account of a psychedelic trip. I will spare you all the boring and unnecessary details of some of my own experiences with
substances and why I gave it any thought at all, but something had been nagging me that what Montezuma was doing had a more profound effect than just
getting high and killing people.
Even if we ignore the psychedelic aspect of the human sacrifice, it's mind boggling to imagine the raw psychic and emotional torment and torture that
individuals were put under during these blood lettings. I have read descriptions of sacrificial temples with lines of people in all 4 directions
extending for miles, all in a procession to have a priest cut their heart out while alive. I don't know if those types of events can happen in a
vacuum or not, but my guess is NO.
I don't bring any of this up in order to depress anyone or try and connect it to TVP or the events that have proceeded but I find it very interesting
that Cortez went to war with Montezuma in Thomas's lifetime, 1519. I personally have a hard time picturing Thomas's world, but this helps me put it in
perspective a little bit.
Hope everyone had a good weekend, and has a better upcoming week. If you are looking for something new to listen to, Graham Hankocks appearances on
Joe Rogan Experience podcast are pretty fun to listen to, his earliest ones especially. Even if you aren't into alternative history or psychedelic
drugs at all the conversations are really entertaining and can be quite enlightening.
For the record I haven't used any psychedelic drugs in quite a long time, and don't suggest that anyone does irresponsibly. I don't want anyone (lets
be real no one is really reading anymore) to think I am being coy and suggesting they do.
