:: TIARZECATAR :: THE THIRTEEN SONGS ::
:: FIFTH SONG :: IOFARAOCATAR :: THE SONG OF THREE LAUGHS ::

The four Cosmic Powers – Afer, Ana, Atlai and Ayia – come together and spontaneously a non-gendered fifth power – Atze, humanity – emerges among them. This suprises them, and they sing their delight in unison, noting that their group is now a sacred number five, and decide to create the Dannufin, the Ancestral Human Powers, in three tribes. Afer, Ana and Atze come together and sing the first tribe of Dannufin into existence: the woman of wild trees, for the gatherers; the man of wild animals, for the hunters, and the queer of fire, also called Metehuia (Prometheus), for the shamans. Tzihuia, the Sky Trickster, tries to steal fire from the people and take it to the sky to keep for himself but foolishly burns his hands and drops it, causing Afer to laugh out loud. This is the First Laugh of the Cosmos.

Afer, Atlai and Atze come together and sing the second tribe of Dannufin into existence: the woman of domesticated plants, for the farmers; the man of domesticated animals for the herders; and the queer of community for the prayer (mio) speakers of the village. Again, Sky Trickster attempts to disrupt the process by making the prayer speakers sing destructive, angry words. But instead, they begin to sing bawdy sexual songs, causing Afer to laugh out loud. This is the Second Laugh of the Cosmos.

Afer, Ayia and Atze come together and sing the third tribe of Dannufin into existence: the woman of bronze, for the city makers, the man of iron for the fiery toolmakers, and the queer of silicon for the lightning thinkers. They build a tower upon the earth, but Sky Trickster confuses their languages so that they cannot speak to each other. Atze ensures all the languages become delightful expressions of creativity, causing Afer to laugh out loud. This is the Third Laugh of the Cosmos.

Tzihuia, Sky Trickster, is here a Fernal analogue of Zeus or the Old Testament God, but turned into a rather desperate-looking figure whose actions can only make Afer laugh. In the Song of Lucaion, Tzihuia is a more compassionate and cooperative figure, and the episode here explains his burnt hands in that song.

io to fin, the Dannufin
now emerge into being,
female, male and queer powers
now emerge into being

we join in a union of five,
afer, ana, atlai, ayia, the primordial powers,
we raise our song in a union of five,
another voice delightfully emerges,
Atze, of itself, delightfully emerges

bring forth Atze from the united song,
without gender, without fear,
emerge and add your voice to our song,
unfold your humanity into light,
bless the Cosmos with your being

seeing that
we are a sacred five
sensing that
humanity emerges,
there shall be Human Powers

for the gatherers, the Woman of Wild Trees,
for the hunters, the Man of Wild Animals,
for the shamans, the Queer of Vision Fire,
also called Metehuia of the First Tribe,
thus there are Human Powers

behold, Tzihuia comes to the First Tribe,
lays his hands upon the Queer of Vision Fire,
to steal it into the sky to keep for himself,
the trickster burns his hands and drops the fire;
Afer laughs aloud, the First Cosmic Laugh

for the farmers, the Woman of Domesticated Plants,
for the herders, the Man of Domesticated Animals,
for the prayer speakers, the Queer of Community,
also called Bacatarfin of the Second Tribe,
thus there are Human Powers

behold, Tzihuia comes to the Second Tribe,
lays his hands upon the Queer of Community
to make the prayer speakers sing angry words,
they sing sexual songs to offend the trickster;
Afer laughs aloud, the Second Cosmic Laugh

for the city makers, the Woman of Bronze,
for the firetool makers, the Man of Iron,
for the lightning thinkers, the Queer of Silicon,
also called Fast Blessing of the Third Tribe,
thus there are Human Powers

behold, Tzihuia comes to the Third Tribe,
lays his hands upon the Queer of Silicon,
to confuse their tongues and make their tower fall,
they create new delightful words and speak them;
Afer laughs aloud, the Third Cosmic Laugh

seeing that the Human Powers are arrayed,
seeing that the Human Powers have been granted,
they will bring structure and understanding,
they will dissolve and become reformed,
they will be experience portals

and so we who raise our song
in a sacred union of five,
sing the emergence of the Human Powers,
flowing and changing human forms,
here we sing and sing

here in the heart of the Ebion Shining,
heart of humanity,
heart of flowing and changing
here we sing and sing

io to fin - "Hail Cosmic Beings!"
Dannufin - "Human Powers"   
  
 

(From a renewed union of Afer, 
Ana, Atlai and Ayia, the spirit of
humanity spontaneously emerges)
