ABSTRACT. The following text discusses the ideas of water, of fire and the feminine, essential elements in the pre-Hispanic world, as forces with the potential to create and destroy a culture. In The feminine in the pre-Hispanic World: Traces of eroticism and the radical other, we argue that the “horror” coming from the radical otherness within the erotic experience is the feminine. In American Atlantis: Mayan and Aztec catastrophes, we explain that myths reveal the creative work that is the basis of the cultural world. In Water and fire in the pre-Hispanic world, we declare that the acknowledgment of creation having its origin in water and fire is a foundational myth, universal to all societies. pp. 132–172

Keywords: creation; destruction; pre-Hispanic world; eroticism; radical other; myths
