Maya supreme god/goddess who was both male and female at once. The name means ‘the being at the center,' and was thought of as the still point of the center of a moving ring, where everything is at balance and at rest. In Aztec mythology there were two beings, the god, Ometecuhtli, and the goddess, Omecihuatl, who were the source of all life.
