“So the next time you are in the grocery store, getting your corn-in-basket‘fall decorations’, look at that ear of ‘Indian Corn’ you are holding… It is truly a sacred scroll, a piece of the Library of Alexandria…hidden in plain sight. Perhaps there truly is a ‘Maize Codex’, scattered out all over. Like the story of Isis and Osiris, we wonder how it can be brought back together. Not to worry . . .  It knows its own and it will assemble itself again. It will use human beings to do this. And perhaps that is what the sacred intelligence of the Corn had in mind from its very beginning.”
