God made the earth, but the earth had no base and so under
the earth he made an angel.
But the angel had no base
and so under the angel’s feet
he made a crag of ruby.
But the crag had no base and so under the crag he made a bull endowed with four thousand eyes, ears, nostrils, mouths, tongues
and feet. But the bull had no base and so under the bull he made
a fish named Bahamut, and under the fish he put water, and under the water he put darkness,
and beyond this men’s knowledge does not reach.
