Now I will continue: "This is, of course, a deification of the hand that wields the craftsman tool, as it's obvious from it's representations from the native manuscripts. Quetzalcoatl was the craftsman, the mason, the artificer cunning in the making of jewelry and beautiful things, whoc am out of the Atlantic. In his Maya-Quiche form of Tohil, he is represented by a stone flint."
"Here, then, we have the culture bringer who cam out of the sea actually represented by what seems to the central symbol and nucleus of the Atlantean culture complex. Moreover, he is associated with the planet Venus. Indeed, he is that planet. We will remember that the interpreter of that of the Aztec codex Telleriano-Remensis, says of him: They name him "one cane", which is the star Venus, of which they tell the fabled accredited among them. Tlauizcalpan Tecutli is the star Venus, the first created light before the deluge. "This star is Quetzalcoatl". This identification, of course, binds the various parts of the Atlantis complex together with double strength...." (Atlantis in America by Lewis Spence and Paul Tice. continuing) "...Quetzalcoatl it is also to be noted, "caused hurricanes" and "destroyed the world by the wind", as the God of the flint stone well might have done. But we find this "Great Hand" even more closely with Atlantis in the medieval legends associated with the Atlantic Ocean. In the map of Bianco dated 1436, is to be observed an Islandhaving the strange legend underneath it "Yd Laman Satanaxio", generally translated "The Hand of Satan".
"Formalcani, an Italian writer, noticed it, and failed to understand the allusion until he chanced quite fortuitously to stumble on a reference to a similar name in an old Italian Romance, which told how, in a certain part of "India", a great hand rose everyday from the sea and carried off a number of the inhabitants into the Ocean. The tale is evidently eloquent of earthquake or similar catastrophe, of which seems to be a memory....."
(There is "This tree grows out of Hell" and another book)
"....Hurakan, although connected with the above quartettein the enumeration of titles of the Supreme deity, keeps aloof from the lower sphere in which these move at times, and is even invoked by Gucumatz, who calls him, among other names, Creator, he who begets and gives being. That he was held to be distinct, and worshiped as such by the Quiches, maybe seen from the fact that they had one high Priest for Gucumatz, and another for Tohil, another name for Hurakan, who seems to have ranked degree above the former."
"He represented the thunder and lightning, and his particular title seems to have been Heart of Heaven, under which were included the three phases of his attribute, the thunder, the lightning, the thunderbolt, or, as stated in another place, the flash, the track of the lightning, and the thunderbolt, another conception of a trinity. He is also called "Centre of the Earth" and is represented with thunder in his hand. The bird Voc is his messenger. Miller considers him a Sun God, probably because of the "Heart of Heaven", which means nothing."
"....while others hold him to be identical with the Tlalocs, the Mexican rain Gods. He is doubtless the same as Tohil, the leader of the Quiche Gods, who is represented by the sign of "water", but whose name signifies rumble, clash...he was also the God of fire, and as such gave his people fire by shaking his sandals."
"...Tohil and the other members of the trinity, Avilix, and Hacavitz, also represented the thunder, the lightning, and the thunderbolt, were a family of Gods given by the Creator...."
"The flint with which Brinton identifies Tohil, may perhaps, be the Black stone brought from the far East, and venerated in the temple of Kaaba. house of sacrifice, at Utatlan, but there is no confirmation by the Chroniclers....."

"...Xibalba he considers to be the shadowy or etherical sphere which, according to the Mystery teachings, was located within the body of the Planet itself. The fourth book of the Popol Vuh concludes with an account of the erection of a majestic temple, where was preserved a sacred black divining stone, cubicle in shape."
"Gucumatz of Quetzalcoatl, partakes of the many attributes of King Solomon: the account temple building of the Popol Vuh is a reminder of the story of Solomon's temple, and undoubtedly has a similar significance. Brasseur de Bourbourg was first attracted to the study of religious parallelism in the Popol Vuh by fact that the temple, together with the black stone which it contained, was named the Caabaha, a name astonishing similar to that of the Temple, or Caaba, which contains the "sacred black stone" of Islam.
