A description of the experience
Reichel-Dolmatoff – Amazonian Cosmos
The Sun Creator … was not the same sun that now illuminates our earth but a creative principle that, although continuing in existence, is now invisible and can be known only by the beneficial influence that emanates from it. After the act of Creation and of the establishment of the moral norms, the Sun returned to Ahpikondia, the region of Paradise, not to remain there as a deus otiosus but continuing to participate in his Creation. He sent on his eternal representative, this sun that we see today in the sky, and it is through it that the Creator Sun exercises his power, giving his Creation light, heat, protection and, above all, fertility.
