And then in the middle of the darkness, Maleiwa created everything you see and touch, drawing with his blood every figure in the blue sky.
Pulowi, the goddess of wind and fertility, and Juya, the hunter god, were present every day and every night of creation watching the moons go by.
But Wanülu viewed everything Maleiwa created with envy and suspicion, so he, in his vanity and misery, made thinking beings sick with his insatiable envy and greed.
And Wanulu’s greed only leaves the minds of men and women after five solar cycles, that is why the corpse is unearthed after five years, to let greed leave him, and the consciousness of men can then ascend in peace, and merge once more with its origin, in the navel of Maleiwa, the eternal creator.
