The war between the gods and the lords of death lasted many years, and caused much suffering to men. Corn became rare and sacred, and could only be grown with permission from the gods. The dimensional door became unstable and dangerous, and could only be passed through at the risk of losing one‘s life or sanity. Quetzalcoatl was sad and regretful for what he had done. He felt responsible for the destiny of men and worlds. He searched for a way to restore balance and peace, but found none. He then decided to make a supreme sacrifice, which would demonstrate his love and his humility. Quetzalcoatl took off the jade pendant, which was the key to the dimensional door, and gave it to Uxmal, the first man. He told him to use it to enter the underworld and steal the sacred corn tree, which was the source of life and power. He told her to plant it in heaven, where gods and men could share and care for it. He told her it was the only way to end the war and save the worlds. Uxmal accepted Quetzalcóatl‘s mission, and prepared for the trip. He dressed up as a hummingbird, and took the jade pendant and a bag of seeds. He used the pendant to open the dimensional door, and entered the underworld. There he faced the lords of death, who recognized him and attacked him. Uxmal managed to avoid them and reach the sacred corn tree. He cut off a branch with his beak, and kept it in his bag. He then sowed some seeds in the soil of the underworld, as a gesture of peace and gratitude. He then flew towards the dimensional gate, and left the underworld. But when Uxmal reached heaven, he found a terrible surprise. Quetzalcoatl had disappeared. In its place was a great feathered serpent, which coiled around the sun. It was the same Quetzalcóatl, who had transformed into the king star, to illuminate and warm the worlds. It was his last gift and his last wish. Uxmal understood what Quetzalcoatl had done, and was moved. He planted the branch of the sacred corn tree in the sky, next to the sun. The tree grew and bore fruit, which shone like stars. Uxmal distributed the corn among the gods and men, and asked them to respect and honor it. He told them that corn was the symbol of life, death and resurrection. He told them that the corn was Quetzalcoatl, and that Quetzalcoatl was the corn. Thus ended the war between the gods and the lords of death, and balance and peace was restored between the worlds. Men lived happy and prosperous, thanks to the corn and the sun. And Quetzalcoatl looked at them from heaven, and smiled.
