A continuation of the previous blog post titled a secret of Toltec shamans.
The entirety of post below is only a hypothesis/belief.
Belief about reality and deity belief of Tezcatlipoca
Toltec knowledge spoke about a different version of Tezcatlipoca. Commonly, Tezcatlipoca is an Aztec god. The belief that Tezcatlipoca is just a god seems to be just a very personalised and deified version of the whole story.
So was everything about the subject said? No, not all at all, it seems. So what's the real belief behind Tezcatlipoca?
Tezcatlipoca = person is mirrored by other people surrounding him = outer worlds reflect the inner world
Tezcatlipoca is a concept that we all are mirrors and reflections of each other. Your friends, relatives and everybody else you meet is said to be a mirror of yourself. Everybody of your associates and friends is supposed to have some of your features and characteristics, sometimes greatly magnified or standing out, and also, you have something nobody seems to have (and that is a mirror exclusively for your friends) but on the most part you are like other people around you.
The closer people seem to be, the more they seem to mirror each other.
So it works like:
like attract like, similar people attract similar people, and everybody you know is a mirror of yourself (a partial one, i.e. every person you're around mirrors something in you)
atheists attract atheistic people, altruist people attract altruistic people (not necessarily attract "pure" atheists or "pure" altruists just people who have some atheism or altruism in them or in their attitude)
Tezcatlipoca: however partial and partially it seems, people seem to be mirrors of each other and mirror each other, each other's features, characteristics, attitudes and goals and many other things.
For example an ignorant, quick-to-angry RPG gamer would naturally attract other RPG gamers, ignorant people, angry people. They would constantly stumble on each other. The surrounding world of his friends/associates as a whole would mirror his own attitude to life.
All of above is just a belief that reality is so, that we are mirrors of each other. Whether it's true or false, it's only for you to decide.
