Quetzalcoatl did not tell anyone the secret of how he had arrived in the underworld. Only he knew that the sacred corn tree was guarded by a dimensional gate, which could only be opened with a special key. Quetzalcoatl possessed that key, which was a jade pendant in the shape of a feathered serpent. When Quetzalcoatl disguised himself as an ant, he took the pendant with him and used it to activate the door. Thus he was able to enter the underworld, which was a world parallel to his own, but darker and more tenebrous. There reigned the lords of death, who fed on corn and the souls of the deceased. Quetzalcoatl had to be very cunning and brave to steal the corn and escape from the underworld. But he also felt curiosity and admiration for that unknown world. He wondered if there were more worlds like that, and if he could explore them one day. But Quetzalcoatl also knew that the dimensional door was dangerous and could cause imbalances between the worlds. That‘s why he kept it in a secret place and swore never to use it again. However, he did not realize that he had left a small trace of his passage through the underworld. A corn seed that had fallen from his mouth and germinated on the ground of the underworld. That seed grew and became a new sacred corn tree, which bore larger and tastier fruits than the original. The lords of death realized this and were happy, because they had more corn to eat and to offer to the dead. But they also realized that corn had a special power, which allowed them to travel between worlds. Thus began a war between the gods and the lords of death, for control of the corn and the dimensional door. Quetzalcoatl had to intervene to defend men, who were his children and his creations. But he also had to face the consequences of his act, which had unleashed chaos and destruction between the worlds.
