Let's see if I can get this one across the plate.   Whosever batting for
the Mesoamericans, here's my pitch:   What do oquiqua, ipiltian, and nian

Here are their textual references:

ynoquimotlacatilili oquichpiltzintli oquiqua a
tequique, quitocayotique Nicolas,

yn yehuatli cenca qualli oquichpiltzintli huel ipiltian, yconetian

simon pedro oquimochicahuili yniyolotzi nian oquinenehuili yni

For with much wisdom comes much sorrow; the more knowledge, the more
grief. Eccl 1:18

To realize that our knowledge is ignorance, this is a noble insight. To
regard our ignorance as knowledge, this is mental sickness.  Only when we
are sick of our sickness, shall we cease to be sick.  The Sage is not
sick, being sick of sickness; This is the secret of health.  TTC 71
