¡Tierra! ¡Tierra! ¡Capitán, hemos llegado a Las Indias! - that poor man shouted as he was fixing the sail's head. He didn't have a clue... Yes it was land what he saw, just not the place he thought it was. But you know what? It didn't matter. The whole crew went crazy. It wasn't a waste of time after all. - "¡Ese loco tenía razón!" - But they would die without learning the truth...

"The creation of property through the piracy of other's wealth remains the same as 500 years ago." Vandana Shiva
It seems that history repeats itself, wheter we are talking about the discovery of the New World or the Trade Related Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPs)on life-forms. While modeling the sculpture you see above, I asked My-Self many questions about who is a Savage, what is Piracy & what is Divine Will. Actually, Who is In-Dios?

Brief description of terminator technology (V-GURTs):Terminator technology, technically known as a Genetic Use Restriction Technology (GURT), refers to plants that have been genetically modified to render sterile seeds at harvest,preventing farmers from saving and re-planting harvested seed...breaking the Natural Cycle of Life on Planet Earth. Do You Agree? I reject GURTs and Genetic Modified Organisms (GMOs). I wanna protect the Fertility of Seeds. I wanna protect the Fertility of Mother Earth.

Te descubro gracias a tus ojos y me doy cuenta que he estado allí. Fue hace mucho, mucho tiempo, cuando no hacía frío ni calor. Y un día, sin darme cuenta, me fuí lejos... muy lejos.
I discover it though your eyes and I realize I've been there. It was a long, long time ago, when it wasn't cold or hot. And one day, without realizing, I left. I went far... so far away.

Nuestro sol se oculto Cuauhtémoc (One That Has Descended Like An Eagle) was the Nuestro sol desapareció su rostro Tlatoani (Ruler) of Tenochtitlan,Anahuac Valley. Y en completa oscuridad nos ha dejado These are his last words before Hernan Cortés and his Pero sabemos que otra vez volverá Spaniards destroyed an entire civilization. But a New Sun is Que otra vez saldrá gonna rise. Yes,the Aztec empire lives on as long as the Y nuevamente nos alumbrará Ancestors are teaching the old ways to the young ones. Pero mientras allá esté y la mansión del silencio permanezca Our Sun has gone down Muy prontamente reunámonos y estrechémonos Our Sun has been lost from view and has left us Y en el centro de nuestro ser ocultemos in complete darkness Todo lo que nuestro corazón ama But we know it will return again Y que sabemos que es gran tesoro that it will rise again Destruyamos nuestros recintos al principio creador to light us anew Nuestras escuelas nuestros campos de pelota But while it is there in Nuestros recitos para la juventud the Mansion of Silence Nuestras casas para el canto y el juego Let's join together, let's embrace each other Que nuestros caminos queden abandonados and in the very center of our being hide Y que nuestros hogares nos resguarden all that our hearts love Hasta cuando salga nuestro nuevo sol and we know is the Great Treasure. Let us hide our Temples Los papacitos y las mamacitas our schools, our sacred soccer game Que nunca olviden guiar a sus jóvenes our youth centers our houses of flowery song Y hacer saber a sus hijos mientras vivan so that only our streets remain. Cuan buena ha sido Our homes will enclose us Hasta ahora nuestra amada madre tierra Anahuac until our New Sun rises. Most honorable fathers Al amparo y protección de nuestro destino and most honorable mothers, por nuestro gran respeto y buen comportamiento Confirmados por may you never forget to guide your young ones nuestros antepasados teach your children, while you live how good it has been and will be. Y que nuestros papacitos muy animosamente Until now our beloved Anahuac Sembraron en nuestro ser sheltered and protected our destinies that our ancestors Ahora nosotros les encargamos a nuestros hijos and our parents enthusiastically received Que no olviden informar a sus hijos and seeded in our being. Cuan buena será, como se levantara Now we will instruct our children Y alcanzara fuerza how to be good They will raise themselves up and gain strength Y cuan bien realizara su gran destino and as goodness make real their great destiny Esto nuestra amada madre tierra Anahuac in this, our beloved mother Anahuac.
