The Myth

 Stone refused to move, and told Water, “Look all around you. Everything is as it should be. There is no need for change.”

 Water said, “but all things change,” and turned to Fire, asking, “should we not make ourselves ever more fitting to our world?”

 Fire thought a moment on this, then leaped up and exclaimed, “Perhaps! But instead, let us change this world to better suit us!” Addressing Wind, Fire enjoined, “Come, make a world with me!”

 Wind said, “All these things have their place. We must grow to understand all that there is, that we may choose the wisest path. Perhaps Sky can guide us.”

 And the four of them turned to Sky, who is also known as the All of Nothing, and sometimes also as Void. But Sky had already made a cosmos of conservation, a cosmos of adaptation, a cosmos of purpose, and a cosmos of understanding. He never answered, but simply created another, and yet another cosmos, each one accompanied by a sound like a metal bell, and also like a baby laughing with delight.
