Legend has it that Quetzalcoatl, the feathered serpent, was the god of wisdom and civilization, and that he had the power to travel through space and time, and to visit other worlds and other dimensions. This is how he discovered corn, on a distant planet where it grew in abundance. Quetzalcoatl fell in love with the golden plant, and wanted to share it with his children, men. But when Quetzalcoatl arrived on earth, he found that men did not exist. There were only animals, plants and stones. Quetzalcoatl was saddened, and wondered how he could create men. Then, he remembered the corn he had brought from another world, and an idea occurred to him. Quetzalcoatl took an ear of corn and ground it with his hands. Then he took some water and mixed it with the ground corn. Thus, he formed a soft and flexible mass, with which he molded the figure of a man. Quetzalcoatl breathed on the figure, and gave it life. Thus, he created the first man, with corn and water. Quetzalcoatl was happy, and repeated the process to create the first woman. Then he gave them the corn he had left, and taught them how to plant it, care for it, and harvest it. He told them that corn was the sacred food that gave them strength and life, and that made them different from animals. He told them that corn was the gift of Ometeotl, the supreme god, and that they should thank and honor him. The man and woman felt happy, and thanked Quetzalcoatl. Corn became the sustenance of his life, and the symbol of his culture. The man and woman multiplied and populated the earth. And for this, they fervently venerated Quetzalcoatl, the god who brought them corn, and who made them with corn. This is how the legend is told of how Quetzalcoatl discovered corn and taught it to man, and of how Quetzalcoatl made man with corn and water.
