a terrible vision in a dream, Chief Flixithatl of the Aztecs made a pact with
the Waters of the world: that if the Aztec people should never seek to travel
across the sea, but only to fish from it, that the sea would never rise up to
swallow the earth. So it is that the noble Aztec people keep their covenant with
the sea. They shall never build ships. They shall dwell and travel only upon the
land. And when they do venture out in their humble fishing boats, the outings
must always be preceded by prayers and fasting. It is said that if this covenant
is kept, that the Aztec people will one day be masters of all the world's land.
