The Ancient Aztec is a polytheism religion, and what this means is that they believe in many gods. The Aztec culture believed that their purpose in life was sacrifice to the Gods, as they believed they owed them a 'blood debt' and that the sun wouldn't rise without sacrificial blood. To thank the gods for good harvest they gained in a season, they would offer a human sacrifice. These were seen as ‘favours from the gods’ and the Aztecs were eternally grateful for them as most of the Aztecs would have died without it. The Aztecs looked to their own knowledge of astronomy, cosmology and divination to determine their purpose and significance in this life. The Aztecs were very independent people and didn't necessarily rely on anyone else to do their work for them. This shows determination that they wanted to work for what they would get. This illustrates the idea that the search for meaning is to be thankful to people who deserve thanks and to be independent and not rely on other people.
