We've done a lot of investigation (1) & (2) into the Sleeper aspect of Anoikis and I think made some good progress, but I feel it is time take a step back and start looking at it from another side.

The Talocan

from ancient Nahuatl, meaning "place of Tlaloc".
Tlalocan is the first level of the "upper worlds", or 'heavens' in the language of ancient Nahuatl-speaking peoples of central america e.g. The Aztecs.

Tlalocan is described in several Aztec codices as a paradise.

As a destination in the Afterlife, the levels of heaven were reserved mostly for those who had died violent deaths,

Speculation: Perhaps pods that can captured Informorphs but for a civilisation without cloning.
(Access) a whirlpool "the water was whirling there and it too took me in and down into the darkness around and around"

Whirlpools are metaphorically similar to Wormholes.

Originally by: "Tari Redhel"

Taking the hint at face value suggests that 'Talocan' is composed of two words or word-fragments: 'Talo can' or '<??>talo can<??>' or similar.

A quick google search reveals that 'talo' means Hall in Finnish. 'C' doesnt exist in Finnish, but assuming it is pronounced as 'k', 'kansa' means people in Finnish.

Funny thing? As a God, Tlaloc demanded child sacrifices.

The Blood Raiders, at one time, were known for the same thing.

Wasn't there a news item about Blood Raiders seeing signs of the "end times" in pictures from W-space? Something about a red nebula, if I recall correctly...
